The Mind-Made-Body’ (Ishoshin - 意生身) is a subtle body, acquired during meditative practice. Although the subtle body is immaterial, it can exercise many physical affects, known in the West as ‘Astral Projection’. 

This body is considered one of the fruits of the contemplative life in Buddhism.

In Japanese, the word ‘ishoshin’ (意生身) translates as ‘intention’ - it can be seen as the movement of a thought from a non-material realm into a physical one.
