Dhyani Buddhas

In Northern Buddhism: 5 Pre-penultimate Buddhas =Abstraction 5 Boddhisattvas = Penultimate Buddhas = Pre-Human effluence 5. Human Buddhas = Ultimate Buddhas = Emanation Gautama the Dhyani Buddhas (that is the Buddhas evolved out of the mind in mystic trance) were given their elect Buddhas; and so three sets of five were co-ordinated.[26] That is,first, five pre-penultimate Buddhas; then their Bodhisattvas or penultimate Buddhas; and then the ultimate or human Buddhas, of which Gautama was one. Or, first abstraction; then pre-human effluence; then emanation. http://infomotions.com/etexts/gutenberg/dirs/1/5/5/1/15516/15516.htm Akshobya, Ratnasambhava, Amitabha, Amogasiddha.Vairocana, Anger, Ignorance
