Particle (Wyl. rdul) The teachings mention many types of particle. As it says in the summary (domjang) of Mipham Rinpoche’s Khenjuk:

Increasing in size by multiples of seven,
The subtlemost particle, the particle,
And the so-called ‘iron,’ ‘water,’ ‘rabbit,’ ‘sheep,’ ‘ox,’
‘Sunbeam,’ ‘louse-egg,’ ‘louse’ and ‘finger-width’ particles.

These are the different types of particle, of increasing size, which, it is said, make up all outer phenomena. Basically there are two types of particle: those with parts and those without parts.
