Please any help that can be given:
In meditation, as the Buddha-field is visualized, what are the "layers" or rows of buddhas that are behind Shakyamuni Buddha?
In front of is my root lama, to my right is my father, to the left my mother, behind me are my friends,and around them are all others.
Behind my root lama is Shakyamuni Buddha, and at his right is Maitreya, at his left is ?????
Behind him are the blessing lineage. But what does that mean????
And then - what are the rows that follow and their order?
May you be well.
