Vincent van Gogh, Qi Baishi, and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Compared. Whose Artwork is the Best?

Vincent van Gogh, Qi Baishi, and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Compared. Whose Artwork is the Best?



Please see below the answer of whose work is the best among

Vincent van Gogh, Qi Baishi, and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III


I have spent more than 60 years of my professional life in the field of painting. During the many decades of practice and experiences, I have come to know many famous painters. That is especially the case since I became the Head Consultant for authenticating paintings and calligraphy at the National Museum of China in Beijing. As an appraiser and authentication officer of paintings and calligraphy, the bulk of my work is to verify the authenticity of Eastern and Western paintings. I have reviewed tens of thousands of famous paintings, especially the rare and precious works of the maestro Vincent van Gogh of the Netherlands, and those of the champion of Eastern paintings, Qi Baishi of China.

Both Van Gogh and Qi Baishi were great world-renowned masters in art. One represented the apex of Western art and the other was a master of an extreme class in the field of Eastern paintings. Both artists had drawn from the essence of the classical traditions of their respective cultures. They created new styles of art and new ways of seeing the universe. They broke new grounds and became pioneers of new eras, each becoming a creative guru of his time, developing a distinct style of his own and leading new trends that inspired later generations. Their works reflect the different essences of the Eastern and Western traditions. To what extent can their works influence the artistic civilization of the world? What kind of artistry did they achieve that made them upright monuments in art history and admired by so many people?

Some art critics compared the works of Van Gogh and Qi Baishi to see which of them reached a higher level of accomplishment. They concluded that both have their own merit, both are undefeated champions in the art and both reached the pinnacle of artistry. Recently, some art critics also brought up the oil painting Sunflowers and the ink-wash painting Sunflowers, both created by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, and gave them rave reviews. They went on to compare the works by Vincent van Gogh and Qi Baishi with the works by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, trying to establish which of the three artists is the champion of the champions. The result of comparing the works by Van Gogh, Qi Baishi and H.H Dorje Chang Buddha III is tremendously inspiring.

Ever since the Renaissance, Western artists had placed emphases on rational analysis and the realist portrayal of forms. They used light, texture and details to present the realistic, three-dimensional perspective. A few centuries later, Van Gogh rejected the monotony of such use of light and shadow and the realistic portrayal of figures.  He pioneered the movement of impressionism that suited him well by applying a mix of colorful, brilliant, splendid and vigorous brushstrokes. He became a great master of his time and his name was forever etched onto the monument of Western civilization and art.

Whenever people think of Van Gogh, they think of his unique character, the sparkles in his eyes that emit lightning, his vigor and his incessant pursuit of inspiration in art without any regard to external hardships. Van Gogh was an artist by birth. He was of exceptional confidence and was somewhat neurotic. Having such traits, he pursued the art that he loved without any reservation or hesitation. He loved his works and regarded everything else with disdain. He preferred to be a loner in the world and did not care to make acquaintance of other painters of his time. His works are full of luminous colors, the brushstrokes are like rising winds and racing clouds in the sky. In his art, he depicted pasture, figures, flowers and other subject matters with brisk colors. Every brushstroke was transformed from his inner emotions. Such emotions were fully and colorfully captured in his Self-Portrait as well as in the transcendental Sunflowers that he painted. These works contain an animated spirit that is deeply moving.

From Van Gogh’s artistic spirit and intent, we can detect that he was profoundly knowledgeable about Chinese ink-wash paintings. Precisely because of this, while depicting forms and applying colors, he employed the skills of using the center tip of the brush and parallel brushstrokes. His Still Life with Bible was created with parallel brushstrokes. In his Self-Portrait, he portrayed his face filled with lines and plaques that are extraordinary. It is not hard for us to discover that he drew inspirations from the substance and essence of Chinese painting in those brushstrokes. That is why Van Gogh is such a distinguished, unparalleled artist of his time and his works are superior to those by the other Western oil painters such as Cezanne, Gauguin or Picasso of the same era.

Van Gogh’s artistic style was closely linked not only to Chinese civilization in the East, but also to the classical Renaissance art, Pointillism, German Expressionism, and Impressionism in the West. Toward the end of his life, he came into oneness with the universe and immersed himself in a carefree state of mind to “follow wherever nature might lead.” As such, he was no longer aware of his own existence. In his mind, there was only the art and the universe. “Following where the nature may lead” is the essence of the ideology of the Chinese philosopher Laozi. Van Gogh cut off his ear with a knife. He lost himself completely in painting. That was his unspoken resentment and rejection of the unfair treatment imposed on him by the society.

Qi Baishi was profoundly knowledgeable about impressionist, fauvist, and realist paintings. By adopting the essence of Western painting and incorporating the traditional spirit of Eastern art, he developed his unique style and became the master of Chinese painting of the twentieth century. His brushstrokes were solid and poised, evincing a sense of power that went all the way through the paper. Using sheep-hair brushes, he elicited calligraphic skills to create his paintings. Qi Baishi’s lines are bold and robust, embodying a forceful spirit that can move mountains. At the same time, these lines are flexible, sturdy and round, with similar qualities to the lines of wire-drawing. His compositions emerged naturally from the spontaneous movement of the brushes. Such compositions are accompanied by vigorous calligraphy resembling the strength, power and fluidity of stone inscriptions.

The artistic concept of spontaneously “following where nature may lead” is precisely derived from Laozi’s philosophy and the artistic civilization of the Chinese ethnicity. Qi Baishi favored the use of white space in his paintings. The white space in black-and-white Chinese ink-wash paintings is considered a solid color. Ink can be differentiated in nine shades (or five shades according to ancient Chinese text.) That is to say, the white of the paper per se and the black of the ink are all considered as colors. There is a sense of meticulous precision in the artworks by Qi Baishi. He depicted insects such as grasshoppers, mantises and butterflies in meticulous and vividly colorful ways. In some of his artworks, the artist was able to express his ideas by putting down just a few brushstrokes without any conscious intent, while arriving at a state of oblivion of his own existence.  Anything depicted by his brushes was vivid and vibrant, with the subject matter coming alive on the paper. There is an aura that moves our heart and soul. All in all, Qi Baishi’s paintings were executed with a confident brushwork that naturally achieved a kind of childlike charm.

Recently, some people compared the works by Van Gogh and Qi Baishi with the works by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III to see whose works are more superior and outstanding, or will have a broader and more far-reaching influence on later generations. I have viewed quite a lot of the artworks by Van Gogh, Qi Baishi and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. I started the study and appreciation of the paintings by Qi Baishi under the enlightening guidance of my teacher when I was 9, and when I was 14, I began to study and appreciate the works by Van Gogh. It has since been several decades!

At the same time, since I have admired the art of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III for a long time, to satisfy my desire and wishes I flew from New York to San Francisco to visit the International Art Museum of America, and to Los Angeles to visit the H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Cultural and Art Museum in order to see their collections. I was profoundly impressed by the architecture of both museums which is grand and dignified. Both museums have a collection of the authentic works by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. There are various artworks that are created with different kinds of material. Some are bold and forthright, some are charmingly meticulous and astounding. The oeuvre is not made up of just one single style.

Yet, the only artwork that was not available for viewing is the Sunflowers painted by H.H Dorje Chang Buddha III. When I hear that some art critics are comparing the works by Van Gogh and Qi Baishi with the works by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, I naturally feel, from my experience of having studied the works by Van Gogh and Qi Baishi for a number of decades, that although their artistry are similar in levels, it is possible to say who is the best if we are just to compare the sunflowers painted by the three artists, when we include in the compositions, colors, brushwork, lines, vitality, spirit and so on. With all these elements in consideration, it is possible to do the comparison and conclude who painted the best, or in other words, whose works can bring the most joy and delight to people, or whose art will be most influential to the philosophy, artistic concept and entire civilization of this world.

Therefore, without any ambiguity, we concluded. In terms of character and morality, Van Gogh would be the last of the three. In terms of level of skills, Qi Baishi would also be ahead of Van Gogh, who is, however, already the cream of the crop in western civilization. Being the Buddha living in the current century, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III saves living beings with great loving compassion. He is not embodied in an ordinary being. Needless to say, the level of cultivation of the Buddha is superior to that of Van Gogh and Qi Baishi. In terms of creativity and painting skills, how can any ordinary being even hold a candle to the Buddha? In this way, the comparison result is immediately determined.

When those art critics carried out the detailed research of the Sunflowers by Van Gogh and Qi Baishi as well as H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, they copied the artworks by all three artists. After copying the works by Van Gogh and Qi Baishi, they felt deeply that through hands-on practice, they indeed gained more understanding of their works. It would not be easy but not so difficult either for one to really reach their artistic level. As for the Sunflowers by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, they found it rather difficult to copy.  Even though they tried many times, they had a hard time just copying the form, let alone the spirit.

The Sunflowers by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III clearly show the artist’s solid foundation and prolific skills in the Eastern and Western painting traditions. They comprise the essences in both traditions and display a brushwork, sentiment and colors that are one of a kind. The color tones and brushstrokes are rich, dense, soothing and elegant. Lively brushwork paints an animated charm that is whole, evincing a miraculous and expansive spirit and aura as well as a strong vitality. As for the Sunflowers oil painting in which H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III depicted some flowers inside a vase, the artistry is extraordinary and full of variations; the composition is simple yet abstruse. The flowers are natural and gracious, such that they give an impression of unpredictability, reaching a state of oneness with the universe and emanating a sharp animated spirit.


The ink-wash painting Sunflowers by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has an uninhibited, natural, and spontaneous brushwork that is dense, bold, and robust, but also elegant and agile. It exhibits a charm that is like stone and bronze inscriptions. Overall, the whole painting manifests a harmonious and moving imagery, naturally emanating a lively vivaciousness and a carefree, spirited aura.

In comparing the works by Van Gogh of the Western civilization, Qi Baishi of the Eastern culture, and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, we can see the artists are distinguished in their unique own ways owing to their different cultures. However, only the artist who can continue to influence the world two to three hundred years from now will be the everlasting monument.  There is a saying, “Talents emerge in every era and they all will each have 500 years of fame!”  For people of the present day, the one whose work you like the best would be the one that is the most extraordinary!

The true dharma of the Tathagata astounded me and all others!


I gratefully thank Buddhas and Bodhisattvas for opening my eyes to the holy dharma. That is worthy of my devoting the current life to becoming a bhiksuni!


On the eve of 2018 lunar New Year, we were joyfully waiting for the three great virtuous ones, Gelan Deqian Shile Yu Zun, Wang Zha Shang Zun, and Venerable Mo Zhi, to come and celebrate the New Year with us. Unexpectedly, the karmic condition suddenly changed at that time. A tremendously great, broad, and profound cause with the dharma even emerged from the originally planned New Year celebration with the holy virtuous ones. That let we Buddhist disciples present have a supremely magnificent eyesight.The supreme and magnificent state truly opened the eyes of all the Buddhist disciples at the scene.  The circumstance was truly “difficult to encounter even in millions of eons!”


On that day, there were nearly one hundred Buddhist disciples with deep good roots present. Suddenly, one of the fellow sisters raised her hand to speak. Her voice was not loud, but was filled with sincerity. She said, “It is New Year now. I must present my offering to the tremendous holy virtuous one. I will present all my assets, including all my money in the bank, as an offering without leaving a cent behind!”


The tremendous holy virtuous one said, “If you offer everything, what do you have for eating and living?” She was stunned for a moment and then regained her sense and replied, “Then I will keep 20,000 dollars as my living expense.”


The tremendous holy virtuous one said, “You absolutely cannot do that. You have to have sufficient resource of good fortune for cultivation.” She said, “My business will have money come in. Please do not worry about me. If, at the time of New Year, I do not even have this mindset of offering, I would not be a Buddhist disciple and would not be as good as a pig or a dog. Then, how could I become accomplished?” She stated very firmly.


The tremendous holy virtuous one said, “I will not accept even a cent of your offering.” But she was very stubborn and insisted on making the offering. Her entire body was trembling due to excitement. My heart was also moved by her sincerity and piousness and was in continuous upheaval.


Since the stalemate could not end, the tremendous holy virtuous one could only persuade her that she could present the offering to the Ancient Buddha Temple and the merit of doing that is also very great, but she did not agree, saying, “My vow and action is to present the offering to the tremendous holy virtuous one.”


Since she could not be convinced to listen no matter what, the tremendous holy virtuous one could only say, “If you continue to insist on this, I will not teach you. In short, I absolutely will not accept a cent from your offering.” So, she had no choice and finally agreed to make an offering to the Ancient Buddha Temple.


The tremendous holy virtuous one said, “Since I came to this world, I have not met any disciple in this lifetime who treated me so sincerely. You are the first one who is selfless and pious to present all your assets as an offering to me without leaving a cent behind. That is so pure. You made me so moved. Since you treat me so seriously and present such a great gift to me, although I do not accept a cent from you, I and all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas have accepted your mindset and action. According to the stipulation of the dharma, I must give you a holy gift in return. My holy gift is: Tonight, between 1am to 5am after midnight, the yidam who is a Bodhisattva will come to meet you in person!” A round of exclamation of excitement came from the astounded crowd.


Next, a petition was written before the crowd, which was laid on a table before the disciples to let everyone take turns to view respectfully. The tremendous holy virtuous one said, “After you all have looked at it, this written petition will be burnt. Tonight, the Bodhisattva will restore it and return it to you. You bring it here tomorrow to let everyone see whether it is this written petition. This written petition is a treasure. With it, you can learn whatever great dharma.”


Hearing that, I simply could not understand. Others seemed to have the same feeling. A written petition that has already been burnt will be restored by a Bodhisattva and sent back in its original form. How could that be possible?! Therefore, all looked at the written petition especially carefully, paying attention to observe its characteristic of hand writing, so that one can make sure whether it is restored to the same written petition.


After we all had looked at it carefully with respect, the tremendous holy virtuous one took the written petition from the table and burnt it before everyone’s eyes. The tremendous holy virtuous one returned from the crowd of disciples to His dharma seat and said, “Tonight, the Bodhisattva yidam will come to you in person and return this burnt written petition to you.”


The next day, we the same group of people came back. That fellow sister also came to the Buddha hall early. I believed that everyone was like me and wanted very much to know whether she had received the written petition or not, but also feared for causing disrespect and thus dared not ask.


It was until about an hour later that the tremendous holy virtuous one pushed the door of the Buddha hall open. We all rose to pay respect. The tremendous holy virtuous one asked her, “Did you receive it?” She said, “Yes, I did.” Then, the tremendous holy virtuous one told her to take it out and place on the same spot on the table where it has been placed the day before and let us all take turns to view respectfully. What else could be said now? This written petition which had been burnt before our eyes a day ago now was lively placed before our eyes again. Other than the astounded exclamation and admiration for the subtle, marvelous, and inconceivable holy feat, we simply could not control the excitement in our heart!


At this time, the tremendous holy virtuous one said, “You tell everyone how it was received.” She said that, after returning home yesterday, she entered her room a little after 11pm to sit in meditation with the light turned off and wait for the Bodhisattva’s arrival. As she waited until after 1am, the Bodhisattva did not come. At 2am, the Bodhisattva did not come. At 3am, the Bodhisattva still did not come. She was somewhat worried, “Why has the Bodhisattva still  not come yet? Does this mean it will not be sent back?” It was until after 4am in the morning, she simply could not continue and was dazed to fall asleep. She said that at that time she did not know clearly whether she fell asleep or not. Anyway, it was just such a situation. Suddenly, she heard a yell, “So-and-so, I come to deliver the written petition to you!”


Her mind was somewhat slow then and she did not know how to respond. Then, she heard another yell, “So-and-so, I come to deliver the written petition to you!” She opened her eyes and saw that the room was fully filled with flashy and shining golden light! The golden-colored majestic yidam was in the space, standing before her! She joyfully listened to the Bodhisattva speaking to her. After a while, she somehow was activated to wake up from the dream. As she opened her eyes, the golden light was still tremblingly flashing in the room. She turned on the light and looked at her hand, which was holding the burnt written petition!!! She was so excited while holding the written petition in both hands and did not know what to do. She did not feel safe for placing it at any place. She said that she was afraid that the written petition might fly away! She carefully wrapped it with another sheet of white paper and put it near her chest under her clothing. After coming to the Buddha hall that evening, only after seeing the tremendous holy virtuous one, did she dare to take it out before everyone.


What great and magnificent Buddha-dharma this is! Her deep good root and her piousness and purity toward Buddha-dharma enabled her to receive the highest or first-class initiation of the “Initiation of Dharma Affinity with the Yidam.” This is to first burn a written petition which has been written before everyone to send it to the yidam and then the yidam restores the written petition and send it back in person to the disciple receiving the initiation. This is the step that this fellow sister received. This is the first step of the first-class Initiation of Dharma Affinity with the Yidam. The next step is Presenting a Petition to a Bodhisattva. This written petition will again be transformed into a rainbow in front of the crowd to be taken away by the Bodhisattva. At that time, utmost precious nectar will be bestowed to confer her the initiation. The yidam will manifest with her beseeching. She will become a holy one right away!!! As long as she can strictly abide by the precepts, she will not recede from the accomplishment!


This is the most powerful Buddha-dharma that I have seen since I became a monastic. I am truly moved and excited with all kinds of feelings. Very profound Buddha-dharma that can enable one to expediently and quickly attain accomplishment is truly possessed and upheld by the tremendous holy virtuous one and great holy virtuous ones for anyone to receive. However, the key is: how pious are we really? Anything in the world can be bought with money and wealth, regardless of how precious and expensive it is. However, true Buddha-dharma cannot be bought and can only be exchanged with one’s thoroughly pure mind and conduct!

A Forwarded Article – A Letter of Repentancefrom a Buddhist Disciple

A Forwarded Article – A Letter of Repentance from a Buddhist Disciple


 After reading the “Important Replies from Holy Virtuous Ones and Eminent Monastics” dated on the sixth day of the first month of the lunar calendar, I was very much astounded. I really hate myself for being so stupid and ignorant. I did not even analyze the matters that are clearly in the open and had to wait until the great holy virtuous ones to mention them to wake up from the deluded dream state. We are truly so pitiful and must slap ourselves two times to wake up!

     Since H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is such a great Buddha, why would there be disciples who betrayed Him? This obstruction of confusion always locked me and constrained me tightly so that I was unable to untie the doubt. In particular, some of them are famous masters who followed H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III for so many years. How could they still betray the Buddha? I could not figure this out! I could not figure this out!

     After reading the answer dated on the sixth day of the first month, the doubt has finally been removed to see the blue sky. I am truly too stupid, too stupid! I should slap myself two times again. Why couldn’t I see through such clear matters! I had to rely on the great holy virtuous ones to point them out to see the truth. Thinking back now and makingcomparisons, it is certainly true that evil and defrauding masters are deeply in hiding. However, their purpose is to defraud Buddhists to gather offerings to make a living for themselves. Restrictions on them set by true Buddha-dharma and the precepts that require them to benefit living beings are opposite to their purpose. To escape from the restrictions, they, of course, must betray true Buddha-dharma. The situation is so logical. But, why couldn’t I think this through without being pointed out by holy virtuous ones? I shouldslap myself two more times!

     It is true that traitors emerged from disciples of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. However, even more traitors emerged from disciples of Sakyamuni Buddha. This is because the Buddha’s teaching and dharma restricted their evil behavior, so they had to betray to escape by completely joining evil practices. Why didn’t I think about this fact at the time? I am too pitiful! I should slap myself two more times again!

     From detailed investigations, each and every one of the so-called famous master who betrayed is an amateur to the sutras, vinayas, and shastras (commentaries), without even one who understands the teachings of the sutras. They fake great holy ones but forcefully reach their hands out to commit fraud. Their words are full of evil statements showing ignorance to Buddhism. Why didn’t I think about this? Not even understanding the principles of true Buddha-dharma, can they be holy ones? Earning such poor scores from the examination, can they be holy ones? Making erroneous answers to questions on the fundamental principles of Buddhism, are they still Buddhists? Moreover, those who betrayed all have no knowledge of the sutras, vinayas, and shastras of Buddhism and all speak falsely in evil and harmful ways. Why didn’t I think this through? Only until the answers from great holy virtuous ones have been published, did I understand this fact today. I am truly as silly as a pig! Now I should slapmyself even three more times! I slapmyself for being so silly and not thinking about such simple truth. I only thought about that some disciples of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III betrayed. Why didn’t I think about the fact that even more disciples of Sakyamuni Buddha had betrayed? Why didn’t I think about the fact that these masters who betrayed have no knowledge in sutras, vinayas, andshastras and always speak baselessly fabricated lies? We are simply pitiful! I now understand today! I will repent over and over again!!

Humble Buddhist Disciple,

Zonghan repents

The Magnificent Process That I Witnessed in Person When Layperson Zhao Yusheng Passed Away Perfectly

The Magnificent Process That I Witnessed in Person When


The Magnificent Process That I Witnessed in Person When

Layperson Zhao Yusheng Passed Away Perfectly


Amitabha! Dharma masters, rinpoches, and kind virtuous ones, my name is Bee Bee Moh. I will now talk about the magnificent process occurred when Layperson Zhao Yusheng passed away perfectly. To avoid missing something when I talk, I wrote my speech down earlier.


Zhao Yusheng was a disciple of Chen Baosheng and had learned the evil teaching from Chen Baosheng before. Every day, he chanted “supreme vajra master” and that one’s accomplishment all depends on the master and relies on the joy and pleasure of the master. Zhao Yusheng said that he helped Chen Baosheng hide the truth and create false information while working at the tile company. That caused the company to lose more than 800,000 yuan just last year. He said, “I also helped him make false propaganda to deceive people. My situation became worse and worse as I was learning from Chen Baosheng. I am bounded by sin and bad karmas. My body now has cancer and is in great pain and suffering.” Zhao Yusheng realized that he had been harmed by Chen Baosheng’s demonic dharma. He was able to meet H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III after his cancer had reached the terminal stage. When Zhao Yusheng saw His Holiness, the Buddha, he piously repented before the Buddha Master. The Buddha Master said that repenting or not is not important and it is important that one should cultivate oneself well and truly correct the evil and pursue goodness to benefit society and living beings. Zhao Yusheng repented wholeheartedly. He no longer wanted to be a rinpoche and completely stopped learning the evil teaching. He did not fear death and only wished to be reborn in the Buddha-land. He made the greatest vow. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha IIIsaw his sincerity and the maturing of his karmic condition and transmitted the dharma to him. Amitabha Buddha was invited to manifest in person to touch his head and transmit the dharma to him. Brother Zhao Yusheng was also able to see the main gate of the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss at that time. Amitabha Buddha told the Brother that Namo Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva would come to receive him to go to a place in the 5th lotus stage in the Pure Land. After receiving the dharma transmission from Amitabha Buddha and returning to San Francisco, the Brother practiced the dharma all the time every day and did not want to talk much. Sister Zhao Chen, who is the Brother’s daughter and I waited day by day. We did not know which day Namo Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva would come to receive the Brother. I have a company at Washington DC to run, but I also wanted to see the Brother attaining accomplishment. That created a contradiction in my mind. Well, a day spent was like a year to me! Eventually I had to call to beseech instructions from the Buddha Master. The Buddha Master said, “He will not be reborn there for the time being. For Zhao Yusheng’s physical condition, the decisions from the doctors and nurses should always be followed.”


On the day before Brother Zhao’s perfect passing away, he and I sat on a bench outside. He told me, “Chen Baosheng is a demonic devil, demonic evildoer, person of sin, criminal of fraud, and swindler. Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva wanted me to expose his sinful acts and said that He will come tomorrow to receive me. I was told to manifest the dharma to let people know when I am received to leave. However, I am worried that I may be drowsy and forget to expose him when Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva comes to receive me tomorrow.” I told the Brother, “Don’t worry. You don’t worry. Namo Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva will definitely come to receive you, and you will not be drowsy.”


At about 2:30pm in the afternoon on August 24 in American time, I was taking a nap at the time. After going outside to the restroom by himself, Brother Zhao came in to wake me up. He told us that he was about to leave and we should sincerely learn the dharma from the Buddha Master so we will meet again in the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss. He was going to take a bath. At that time, we felt quite sad. Is this person who is alive now truly going to leave? We help him take out the clothing prepared for him earlier. After putting on his clothing, we smelled a kind of special fragrant scent from Brother Zhao’s body. Then, the Brother said, “I will now use my freedom from birth and death to prove that the Buddha-dharma of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the holiest. Chen Baosheng is a demonic devil and demonic evildoer! He is an evil master, big swindler, and a person of sin!” He also said, “The true dharma of the Tathagata is at where our great Buddha Master, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, is. Okay, okay, I will stop now. Namo Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva has come to receive me!” After finishing speaking, Brother Zhao emitted light from his entire body. I saw the extremely tall and great Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, radiating strong and intense white light everywhere from His body. Surrounded by five-colored light, Namo Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva was extremely solemn and majestic, standing above the top of Brother Zhao’s head. At that time, I saw that Brother Zhao’s spiritual consciousness rushed out from the top of his head toward Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva and left in the sky! While watching, I suddenly was unable to see Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva and Brother Zhao. I hurriedly ran into the courtyard. At this time, my phone rang. I raised my head and saw that Brother Zhao left in the sky while stepping on white clouds and following Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva. I also saw that fragrant nectar was coming down from the trees in the yard! Dharma masters from Hua Zang Sicame right at that time. When they arrived, they also saw that nectar was descending from the trees. The dharma masters also recorded the scene by video. This nectar was strange. It disappeared before touching the ground. I was not the only one seeing the event. An elder lady who is 92 years old and from Malaysia also saw that Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva received Brother Zhao Yusheng and brought him away! This holy manifestation is difficult to hear even in millions of kalpas.


I am grateful to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.

I am grateful to Namo Amitabha Buddha.

I am grateful to Namo Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva.


Thank you all.

The International Buddhism Sangha Association:

I was most fortunate to have a chance to pay my respects to the noble Wang Zha Shang Zun and receive a most wonderful teaching from him. Because of his great compassion and mercy in giving me his wisdom concerning an important dharma matter, I now have a deeper understanding and appreciation for the dharma that I practice and my cultivation. I would like to share this truth with others. I have already distributed the attached article that I wrote about this event to the readers of the Holy Vajrasana Temple’s Newsletter and to my students whom I could reach by email or WeChat.  I would like to request that IBSA further distribute the attached to their extensive mailing list so that even more people can share the good news and benefit and let more people know the greatness and inconceivable virtue of Wang Zha Shang Zun. Of course, I am not capable of using words to express the supremacy of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, who is both Wang Zha Shang Zun’s and my master.

The most holy Wang Zha Shang Zun is truly great. His profound wisdom, humility, and kindness serve as an example for us all!  Amitabha!

Many blessings to all for the coming New Year, Zhaxi Zhuoma.









This February Newsletter of the Holy Vajrasana Temple & Retreat Center is devoted entirely to Abbot Zhaxi Zhuoma Rinpoche’s personal opportunity to pay respect to Wang Zha Shang Zun after she participated in the Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue Dharma Assembly and the precious dharma that she received as a result of that meeting. Because of its importance to both Chinese and English-speaking disciples, this Newsletter will be provided in both English and Chinese.


To my disciples and other friends of the Xuanfa Institute:


Since the United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters (UIWBAH) article recently appeared concerning the September Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue Dharma Assembly, many of you have asked me what the most excellent and greatholy Wang Zha Shang Zun is like. In addition to successfully conducting this amazing and very high level ceremony to determine who was and who was not an authentic incarnation of a Buddha, he is a most impressive and powerful elder man who is worthy of our respect. I have met many dharma kings of different sects, but no one is like Wang Zha Shang Zun. His power and virtue surpass all of them.


After the ceremony, I had the extreme good fortune to meet an attendant of his who speaks English and requested to prostrate to the Shang Zun, which to my surprise, was granted. It is very difficult to meet him. The Assistant told me that, to date, probably less than 100 persons in the U.S. have had the good fortune to meet him privately. The attendant took me to the place where this great mahasattva was staying. I was very excited to be able to see him again. Wang Zha Shang Zun mostly speaks Tibetan, but I am told he can also speak Mandarin Chinese. His voice was as I had remembered from the ceremony. Seeing him up close, I realize that he is probably over six feet tall and in excellent health. I had guessed that he must be at least sixty as I knew he had spent 45 years in seclusion in Tibet, but from his appearance guessed he could be even younger.  His attendant told me that Shang Zun had already turned 93. He is very spirited and looked like and had the energy and bearing of a much younger man. As for his appearance, he has a most remarkable full beard, large kind eyes, bushy eyebrows, a rectangular face, and is bald. I was reminded of images of Bodhidharma, the “barbarian” with such a beard and eyebrows who went to China from India, only Wang Zha Shang Zun is considerably more handsome than the great patriarch of Zen is usually portrayed to be. However, what is most impressive is his incredible modesty and humility. This is what it is like to be in the presence of a great holy being!


I had wanted to meet him to express my gratitude for the empowerment I received at the Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue Dharma Assembly, but also just to show my respect because I knew that only someone of very high attainment could have performed that dharma. When I offered him prostrations, he would always tell me to prostrate instead to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. His attendant told me that this holder of three gold buttons at a Shang Zun level always carried an image of the Buddha Master with him and did this. When he went back to his living space, the first thing he would do was to put H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s image and Shakyamuni Buddha’s image in a high place and make offerings to them. I again prostrated, but it was just as before. Wang Zha said, “The Buddha Master is here. You should prostrate to the Buddha Master. How can I accept your prostrations?” The other dharma kings I have met always accepted and even arrogantly awaited my prostrations while silently seating on their throne. Wang Zha Shang Zun is certainly the top chief great dharma king among all dharma kings, but he is still so humble. I was very touched. Again I realized how very, very fortunate I am.


Wang Zha Shang Zun is very easy to communicate with and very amiable. Every sentence he says with a smile.  He also provided me with hot tea having his assistant serve me using traditional China teacups. I accepted the teacup and put it aside on the table. Wang Zha then told me that “the quality of this tea is not very good. It comes from Tibet and is called Old Eagle Tea”. However, the fragrance of the tea, was so wonderful that it betrayed his humble portrayal.  I requested from Wang Zha Shang Zun how to practice the Green Tara Mirror Altar Dharma (Jing Tan Fa). The Shang Zun said, “First you have to have a good mirror. Then you get the dharma transmitted through holy inner tantric initiation. The most important thing is that you should practice according to the Buddha Master’s teachings, and let all people know that they should do good and cease evil. It is then very easy to succeed with this dharma. But you should decide by yourself if you want to practice this dharma. The Buddha Master proposed that we should cultivate ourselves and opposed the miraculous. I am not telling you to practice this Green Tara Altar Dharma.”


The time flew by so quickly. My mouth was dry and I realized I needed to drink the tea, but when I lifted the cup, the cup is so heavy it is as if it were glued to the table.  I couldn’t move it even when I exerted a lot of force. I was so surprised. I put that cup on the table. How can I now not lift it? This time Wang Zha Shang Zun saw what was happening and told me, “It is no use to use force. Force cannot lift it. You have to use your mind to lift it. When your mind is not attached to anything, everything will follow your mind.” Then Wang Zha Shang Zun asked me to lift it again. Very strange. It was as if it was weightless. I easily lifted it and also when I opened the cover of the cup, there is a moving image like a video in the cover. I clearly saw a picture of one of my fellow brothers from the past and a moment when I was in Japan. It was very clear, but it quickly started to disappear. I was really surprised. I used my eyes to follow the cover. After a while it completely disappeared. Then Shang Zun said. “Any object can be used as a mirror.” So I suddenly understood why my mind and my cultivation are so important and cannot be replaced by anything else.


I pray that each of you take advantage of this most fortunate fact that the H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha is living in this world now and practice the Dharma that you learn. I also pray that you all quickly become accomplished.


Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III! Namo Shakyamuni Buddha!


A very ashamed and fortunate disciple, Zhaxi Zhuoma prostrates and offers special thanks to Wang Zha Shang Zun for teaching her this important lesson.





從最近聯合國際世界佛教總部關於九月份舉行的金剛法曼擇決法會的文章問世以來,你們中的許多人向我問到最優秀的大聖者旺扎上尊的情況,除了成功地舉行這場了不起和非常高級的決定誰是和誰不是佛陀的真身轉世的儀式外,他是一位值得我們尊敬的非常有威儀和威力的長者。 我遇見過許多不同宗派的法王,但沒有一個是像旺扎上尊那樣的,他的功夫和品德超過他們的所有人。


在儀式後,我極其幸運地遇見他的一位講英語的侍者而要求向上尊請示並出乎我意料地得到准許。要見到他是非常難的,侍者告訴我至當時為止在美國有如此幸運而個別見到他的人可能不到100位。這位侍者把我帶到這位大摩訶薩所在的地方,能再次見到他使我非常激動。旺扎上尊大部份講藏語,但我被告知他也會講漢語的普通話,他的嗓音是我記得在儀式上所聽到的。在近距離見到他,我發現他身高超過6英尺,非常健康。因為我知道他曾在西藏閉關45年,我曾經猜想他至少有60歲,但從他的相貌猜想的話,他可能更年輕。他的侍者告訴我上尊已經93歲了,他非常精神而且看上去像一位年輕得多的人和具有與那相符的年齡的能量和氣宇。至於他的相貌,他有一部非常引人注目的鬍鬚、充滿善意的大眼睛、濃密的眉毛、長方臉型和禿頂,使我聯想到那位從印度到中國的具有這樣的鬍鬚和眉毛的“野蠻人”菩提達摩的形象,唯一的分別是旺扎上尊比通常描述中的那位禪宗的大祖師英俊得多。然而, 令人印象最深刻的是他的令人難以置信的虛心和謙遜,這是一位大聖者所在的情形!
