Nirmaṇakāya (Tib. sprul pa’i sku), “transformation Body”, the emanation (Form) Body of a Buddha.

One of the three bodies or vestures of a Buddha (Trikaya).

It is the outer or phenomenal appearance, the tangible something that can be contacted in the realms of Illusion, the incarnation Body.

The other two vestures are Dharmakāya and Sambhogakāya.

In the esoteric Doctrine a Nirmaṇakāya can also be seen as one who has taken the highest Initiation on the earth sphere (the sixth or greater), but instead of traveling upon a cosmic Path still retains a link with the earth Hierarchy.

Thus such a one resides in an illusionary Body of contact within cosmic dense substance.
