Luminosity or clear light (Tibetan od gsal, Sanskrit prabhāsvara), in Vajrayana, Tibetan Buddhism and Bon, refers to the nature of mind experienced in deep sleep and death.[1][2]

Definitions[edit]

Patrul Rinpoche defines ground luminosity as the:

...luminosity that occurs during deep sleep, union and death.[3]

Practice[edit]

The practitioner trains to consciously enter the deep sleep state.[4] If one has the ability to remain conscious during deep sleep, one will be able to recognize the luminosity of death and gain Buddhahood.[5] This is called the meeting of mother and child luminosities, resulting in the state of thuktam at death.[6]
