Buddha-Bestowed Nectars Unexpectedly Appeared

By Zhaxi Zhuoma

(Reported from Los Angeles) Expounding the Absolute Truth Through the Heart Sutra is truly a supreme holy scripture. On March 7, 2014 CE, a dharma assembly of empowerment with this treasure book was held for the first time at the Holy Manifestation Temple in the United States of America. The treasure book Expounding the Absolute Truth Through the Heart Sutra, the six great dharmas, holy mantras, and letters of petition to be chanted and practiced by the seven types of cultivators, and dharma water and willow branches were presented to the dharma rostrum for worshipping. Forty six (46) pieces of first-publishing stamping seals to be empowered by the dharma water were placed at the front.

Dharma King Gar Tongstan Ciren Gyatso escorted the purple-colored brass dharma bowl that he had beseeched in person from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III to the Holy Manifestation Temple. The dharma bowl was then placed onto the elegantly carved granite fortune-beseeching platform. Elder Dharma King Gar Tongstan, Kaichu Rinpoche who is over the age of 80, and Gongga Rinpoche who is 20 years old performed the leading roles of dharma practice at the dharma assembly. Dharma King Gar Tongstan handed the dharma bowl to Kaichu Rinpoche in person. After the rituals of praying and bathing the mandala, Gongga Rinpoche fetched clear water and washed the dharma bowl as watched by everyone. Then the dharma bowl was presented onto the fortune-beseeching platform. All attendees of this dharma assembly were rinpoches, dharma masters, and acaryas. They all started to chant the Six Character Great Bright Mantra and the Heart Sutra with great devotion.

About a little over ten minutes after the dharma assembly had begun, gusty winds suddenly started to roll in the sky. The sounds of whoosh signaled the arrival of many holy dharma protectors. However, the yellow-satin banners covering the walls of the dharma tent were not rolled up by the strong winds. At this time, disciples each saw different holy magnificent states that were beyond description by words! After the chanting of the sutra and the mantra had stopped, Gongga Rinpoche was going to pour six glasses of dharma water into the dharma bowl at the center. Suddenly, he saw through the transparent cover of the dharma bowl light being emitted within the bowl. Upon looking closely, many nectars were seen inside the bowl. With astonishment and joy, he immediately prostrated to the dharma bowl. The site of the dharma assembly was filled with a scene of happiness and delight. People all went forward to view the dharma bowl respectfully. Some people saw that the nectars were five-colored. Some saw the nectars as being purple-red colored. Some others saw the nectars as being white. The shapes and forms of the nectars were unlike any objects or matters in the human world. The nectars were truly wonderful and miraculous beyond description!

People present all praised the holy scene with surprise and joy. After this period of excitement, the six glasses of dharma water were merged with the nectars. Holy water of seven components, with nectars being the leading one, was created in the dharma bowl. Dharma King Gar Tongstan used willow branches to sprinkle the holy water onto the first-publishing stamping seals to empower the ink paste and the stamping seals. He also knocked the dharma bowl to have it ring loudly to manifest the voice of the dharma transmitting through the sky to everywhere in the dharma realm to benefit living beings with perfect good fortune and wisdom.

Attendees all witnessed Buddhas bestowed nectars at the dharma assembly, as a congratulation to the Supreme Treasure Scripture Expounding the Absolute Truth Through the Heart Sutra.

Although H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did not come to the site to practice the dharma, because of the presence of the scripture Expounding the Absolute Truth Through the Heart Sutra expounded by His Holiness the Buddha, the boundless merit and realization power of His Holiness the Buddha still invoked Buddha-bestowed nectars. All these supreme holy manifestations thoroughly proved that the dharma Expounding the Absolute Truth Through the Heart Sutra expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the most supreme unsurpassable sutra of Buddhism leading to liberation and accomplishment!

The primary purpose in practicing Buddhism is to gain control over your life and death. That is true liberation and true happiness! Disciples of His Holiness Dorje Chang Buddha III have exhibited extraordinary feats at the time of their death. There have also been supernormal phenomena manifest at the time of or after their death. Disciples have even returned from the “Pure Land” to report on their new home to their families and to urge them to follow the teachings of His Holiness.

His Holiness has disciples who are eminent monastics and enlightened laypersons who if they want to live, they live. If they want to die, they die. Many have passed on while sitting in the cross-legged meditation position after they announced that they were leaving. They reached a level where they were liberated from the cycle of reincarnation. Many have left behind shariras or firm relics as evidence of their achievement. They have also left behind their body of flesh that does not rot.

Even non-Buddhist relatives of the Buddha Master’s disciples were able to make the transition to the Pure Land after they received the Buddha Master’s instructions and blessings. In all of these examples, the time of transition was an extremely joyous event. Friends and family were able to know that their loved one was making a peaceful transition to a wonderful existence..

TYPES OF LIBERATION FROM THE CYCLE OF BIRTH & DEATH: Regarding liberation from the cycle of birth and death, His Holiness has told us that there are several ways to obtain it. Roughly speaking, it is divided very crudely into four types. There is a dharma that will lead one to have the lifespan as long as heaven which was called the “immortal body”. This is what Guru Padmasambhava achieved. This is the highest dharma which can not be learned by ordinary people. Then, there is the dharma of the rainbow body transformation, which one achieves by transforming one’s entire fleshy body into a rainbow body. Another type is passing away in a sitting position and freeing oneself from the cycle of birth and death. The other type is passing away and being reborn in the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss. These are the four types of achievement. Other than that, without achieving liberation or enlightenment, it is descending to reincarnation and death.

The rainbow immortal body is also referred to as the body of supreme transformation or the rainbow body attainment of All-Surpassing Realization. In this higher form the rainbow body transmutes all psychophysical components into the light of buddhahood, so that no outward change is visible. This is why Padmasambhava, Vimalamitra, Vairocana and the like can pass into other buddha-lands in the same forms they enjoyed in our world. The lower rainbow body attainment transmutes consciousness, feeling, perception, and habitual tendencies into the light of buddhahood, but the component of form shrinks in size until only fingernails, tooth-enamel, hair, or relics remain, some time as a “vajra sharira” or “human body sharira.”

Dharma Assembly of Empowerment by Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva’s Mind of Great Compassion Experience and Benefits Sharing

Dharma Assembly of Empowerment by Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva’s Mind of Great Compassion Experience and Benefits Sharing

“I must have seen a Buddha or a Bodhisattva!”

By: Buddhist Disciple Gexi Luosang

Homage to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III! Homage to the greatly loving and compassionate Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva!

I am very grateful for having the good fortune to attend the Guan Yin Bodhisattva of Great Compassion Empowerment Dharma Assembly led by Great Dharma Master Ruo Hui. When the dharma assembly started, I performed the instructed movements for a while. Then my arms felt very tired. I relaxed my arms. Gradually, I felt some cooling air around my arms and also sensed a little static electricity. After a while, the feeling vanished. I still stood there relaxing myself. A while later, I again felt cooling air circulating around my arms. My hands began to tremble and felt more and more numbing. My body also followed to waver forward and backward. The wavering was like being driven by a kind of invisible force and like wavering along with the sea wavers in the ocean. I was unable to control myself but my feet were still standing at the same place. When the wavering magnitude of my body was too big, I lost my center of gravity and felt to the ground. However, the fall did not cause any pain to me. While lying on the floor, my ears started to have a kind of numbing feeling. There was also a force pulling my head to lean back. I continued to lay there to enjoy the numbing feeling on my own. The feeling was very comforting but disappeared gradually. I thought this was the empowerment from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas because I had suffered serious illness in the past. Therefore, I stood up and prostrated toward the direction of the Buddha statue. Then I returned to my original standing pose.

Suddenly, an image dressed with very brightly beautiful and good-looking clothing appeared before my eyes. I was not able to see the face of the image but could tell that the style and colors of the clothing was very beautiful. Actually, it was more beautiful than the dresses I had seen before from the statues of Bodhisattvas. At that time, I thought I must have seen a Buddha or a Bodhisattva. Thus, I immediately began to prostrate.

During the entire process, I kept my eyes closed. I heard very wonderful and ear-pleasing singing as well as crying and laughing. Sound of body movement was also heard. I also generated the joy of dharma for the empowerment received by other dharma sisters.

I am grateful to the empowerment from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and the greatly loving and compassionate Namo Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva!
