In Buddhism the Dharmakaya, Sambhogakaya and Nirmanakaya are the three “bodies” of the Buddha. The Sambhogakaya is the Body of Bliss, Body of Inspiration or Spiritual Enjoyment, or Glorious Body. It is the form that a Buddha characteristically uses to reveal himself in his glory to bodhisattvas, enlightening and inspiring them. The Sambhogakaya corresponds to the middle figure in the Chart of Your Divine Self—the Holy Christ Self.
