Becoming Light: A comparative analysis of the attainment of the Tibetan Buddhist Rainbow Body with the Transfiguration, Resurrection, & Ascension of Jesus, the Assumption of his Mother Mary & glowing orbs witnessed in conjunction with the UFO/ UAP phenomena

Kathleen B. Covalt, Ed.D.

Introduction: Within the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism there is a teaching that prepares human beings to achieve an enlightened state of consciousness and bodily transformation called the Rainbow Body. A few days after the death of a Master practitioner of the teachings, the body shrinks and then vanishes from sight. Witnesses report unusual phenomena in the locality of the deceased such as rainbows of various shapes in the sky, beautiful music heard from an unknown origin, and the scent of a fragrant perfume.

This comparative analysis explores the research done by Fr. Francis V. Tiso who details his investigation into the attainment of the Rainbow Body by Khenpo A Cho, a Tibetan monk, in 1998.

Similarities are noted between the recorded accounts made by fellow monks who witnessed the transformation of Khenpo A Cho and Biblical passages concerning the Transfiguration, Resurrection, and Ascension of Jesus, as well as the visionary experiences in the early 1800’s of Anne Catherine Emmerich concerning the Assumption of Mother Mary. Also considered is the possibility that some of the orbs of light witnessed in association with the UFO/ UAP phenomena could be intelligent light beings manifesting in our perceptual realm.

Implications / Discussion: This presentation is a fascinating exploration into wisdom teachings concerning who we may be and who we may become. Is the bodily transformation into a body of light the next step on humanity’s evolutionary path? Are the orbs of light people experience showing us a glimpse into a far more wondrous reality filled with intelligent beings that exist all around us?
