Dharmadhatu may also be referred to as dharmakaya, or the “body of dharma truth,” once the practitioner's Buddha nature is realized. This is a more advanced stage of consciousness.
In the "Mahayana Mahaparinirvana Sutra," the Buddha refers to himself as the "boundless dharmadhatu." In this case, the term means that the Buddha represents Totality itself.
Dharmadhatu is also an important concept in the five wisdoms of Tibetan Buddhism and forms the first of them. The whole five are:
- Dharmadhatu wisdom
- Mirror-like wisdom
- Equality wisdom
- Discriminating wisdom
- All-accomplishing wisdom
