It seems that the sentence "we learn to develop an enlightened vision of the world by visualizing ourselves as a buddha or deity" contradicts the later mention of Kriya yoga sadhanas, where it is not so much by visualizing ourselves as a buddha, but by visualizing it in front of making offerings and so on that we work with our minds. This description of a sadhana seems to apply more to highest yogatantra. Where is it from? Gyurme

Not sure I understand the meaning or purpose of the phrase "...deities, who in essence are the ultimate state of a buddha." This makes questions arise in my simple mind like: Is there a 'relative state' of a buddha? Is the purpose of this phrase to disambiguate the term 'deity' which could refer to a worldly god or deity? Could we instead try to infiltrate some kaya notion like '...deities, who are the manifestation of buddhas on the sambhogakaya level.
