Spontaneously accomplished vidyadhara (Tib. lhundrup rigdzin; Wyl. lhun grub rig 'dzin) — the last of the four vidyadhara levels, the very embodiment of the five buddha kayas, or buddhahood itself. According to Jikmé Lingpa, although the spontaneously accomplished vidyadhara is classified as the level of buddhahood, "nevertheless, there are still further levels to be attained as the nature of this stage reaches full strength."[1]
