fivefold bodies of the Law
五分法身 (Jpn gobun-hosshin )

    Five meritorious attributes or aspects of arhats and Buddhas.

They are:
 
  precept body,
  meditation body,
  wisdom body,
  emancipation body,
  and knowledge-of-emancipation body.

This term is interpreted to mean that the bodies and lives of persons in the stages of arhat and Buddhahood naturally possess moral discipline, concentration, emancipation from illusions and suffering, and knowledge of emancipation (the insight to know that one is free from delusion).
