('bras bu'i skabs kyi sku lnga). The five aspects of perfect enlightenment are described by Padmasambhava in his Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo: The perfection of the benefit of oneself is the peaceful dharmakaya. The spontaneously present benefit for others is the unified sambhogakaya. The manifold skillful means to tame beings is the way of nirmanakaya. The distinct and unmixed appearance aspect is the true bodhikaya. Their one taste as dharmadhatu of the emptiness aspect is the vajrakaya. (RY)
