So, silly question, when you achieve rainbow body, you shrink down and get really small??? How does that work?
Not a silly question...after the breath etc has stopped the body slowly reverts back to the elements and then into light leaving only the hair and nails behind. As was said previously this is called small rainbow body. The great transference is where the practitioner doesn't actually go through the dying process and very quickly reverts back to the elements/light.
thanks for the explanation, it's truly amazing.

Glad to be of service, maam

Two more photos. May all beings be liberated from the suffering of samsara and attain the state of Buddhahood.

More photos after many days. The Kudung looks obviously very thin and small now.
