How are "all types of beings originally formless"?
- p100 The Sutra of Hui-neng, Grand Master of Zen: With Hui-neng's Commentary on the Diamond Sutra
I'm asking because this page [quoting His Highness the Dalai Lama] says
Immediately thereupon, the intermediate state begins—except for those reborn in the formless realms of infinite space, infinite consciousness, "nothingness" or peak of cyclic existence, for whom the new life begins immediately upon death
If we all are originally formless, then our original nature has no intermediate state, while our unenlightened state does.
How can that be?
