The man Siddhartha Gautama who is said to have lived long ago is dead. The Dharmakaya is a concept for what may remain present and goes beyond the dead man Siddhartha Gautama. The Truth remains. Furthermore it is believed that the essential Buddha Nature or Awakeness remains active, so that Siddhartha Gautama is not in the round of death but has transcended it, the Dharma Kaya or Essential Buddha or Awakened One remaining accessible and alive. People do pray to this and report responses by this, they are not accessing Siddhartha Gautama whose body is gone away but rather what was acting through or what was coming forth through Siddhartha Gautama, a power of Truth which lives on and continues to manifest with various forms or levels of clarity for people.
