Vidyadhara with power over life (Tib. ཚེ་དབང་རིག་འཛིན་, tsewang rigdzin, Wyl. tshe dbang rig 'dzin) — one of the four vidyadhara levels. This stage is reached after not only the practitioner's mind has matured into the dharmakaya, but one also gains the power to purify the ordinary body and transform it into a subtle body, which is immortal.
