Rainbow Body

The Invisible Elephant

Devins’ assertion (The Illusion of Death) that, that which we refer to as Jesus’s resurrection is, in fact, a teachable skill, was not well received by the Christian and scientific institutions. The claim was based on studies of the Tibetan Buddhist rainbow body tradition and its connection to the Shroud of Turin, the Secret Gospel of Thomas and the science of the atom. Rainbow body is where the corpses of spiritually perfected people vanish at death. In this new book, Devins reasserts his claim, this time backed by a personal, on-site investigation of two archetype rainbow body deaths. While in Tibet he also visited a Tibetan monestary where students are taught how to die without leaving a corpse behind.

Death without leaving a corpse behind speaks to the true nature of reality. It has nothing to do with religion. Mind, not God, is the central figure. Unfortunately, this shocking truth about death overlaps with foundational Christian resurrection doctrine, and religion quickly enters the conversation, in a negative way. Science’s arrogant claim that it is physically impossible for a corpse to vanish also disrupts the narrative. Neither institution can see the “elephant;” religion because its faith based teachings do not allow outside-the-box thinking, science because its investigative platform excludes the paranormal. Under the mega-influence that religion and science exert on the population, a giant elephant in the room — one that otherwise radically changes Western view of reality and its entire social-political-religious-scientific landscape — goes unnoticed. It goes unnoticed even though the weight of science, observation and experience rest with the elephant.


J. Thomas Devins

J. Thomas Devins is a Chemical Engineer and businessman who has taken his considerable problem solving skills from the laboratory and boardroom and applied them to the greatest unknown of all—the mystery of death as now understood in the Tibetan Buddhist rainbow body tradition. His promising career in business ended with early retirement when he took leave in order to care for his ailing wife. After ten years and her passing, mystical experiences followed which directed him to a twelve year study including an onsite investigation of a recent rainbow body death where a Tibetan Buddhist master died and his corpse vanished into thin air. In his research, Devins connected the Shroud of Turin, Eastern mystical death traditions, the science of the atom and the Secret Gospel of Thomas. That which emerged is a clear, refreshing understanding of the process known as death, with the conclusion that we all have what it takes to exit the plant by resurrection, just as Jesus did. Death is truly an illusion.

The human mind, like an athlete’s muscles, is trainable. Jesus trained His. I’m working on mine. How about you?

Reality is that which you are thinking about that is no longer there when you stop thinking about it.

The Illusion of Death

Out Now!

Starting with the Tibetan Buddhist rainbow body tradition and connecting the dots, Devins concludes: 1) that which we call resurrection is a teachable skill available to all that want to learn, and, 2) we are all here, on the planet, because we intend to be here. It is in this knowledge we find the true nature of reality and the reality of reincarnation and the law of karma; sticky issues which religion and science need to address. A Chemical Engineer and lifelong Catholic, Devins acknowledges that the book’s revelations will be largely ignored by religion and science. Religion because it is too heavily invested in the biblical notion of death to change. Science because of its engrained attitude against the paranormal. Devins’ disappointment with the close-minded attitude of religion and science is reflected throughout the book. Timely change, if it is to happen, must come from new, outside-the-box theological thought and/or a fiery, renewed attitude of truth seeking that initiates in the Sunday morning pew.
