Speaking from My Experience of Attending the Dharma Assembly of Empowerment by Kuan Yin Bodhisattva’s Mind of Great Compassion

–“I laughed loudly and heartedly without stopping. I felt that the laugh

resolved all kinds of worries and threw all my afflictions far, far away..”

 

I am grateful to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, and all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas!

 

At the beginning, I followed the instruction from the master who was practicing the dharma to relax my entire body. Shortly after, I started to tremble from my feet. My heart was filled with happiness, delight, and joy and I laughed. However, I realized that there were no movements or sound from other people and thus tried to be silent, but I could not control myself. So I laughed loudly and heartedly without stopping. I felt that the laugh resolved all kinds of worries and threw all my afflictions far, far away. I was under the light of auspiciousness and harmony that covered everywhere. My laugh caused tear to flow from my eyes. Later, I sat down, but I continued to laugh heartedly and could not stop myself. Then I heard the singing of the Six Character Great Bright Mantra and the holy name of Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva. Some people in the hall joined the singing. At that time, I stood up to make some movements. After that, I sat down and again laughed incessantly. That was simply beyond my control. I also said repeatedly, “Hey, I laughed too much!”

 

Then I felt that I was like traveling within the lights in the empty space. Also, there was a kind of instruction to make me talk. So I kept saying, “Okay, okay, no problem, no problem, all are very well.” I also said, “Hey, Amitabha Buddha came, Amitabha Buddha came!” “I am grateful to the empowerment from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to remove our karmic hindrances. I am grateful to the empowerment from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to remove our karmic hindrances, so that I will have no impediment when my life ends.” “That will keep me far away from distorted dreaming thinking and enable me to attain ultimate nirvana.” “Amitabha Buddha empowers us to remove our karmic hindrances, so we all attain accomplishment and liberation early.” “All unfavorable karmic conditions will be removed, Amitabha Buddha! Dharma brothers will get along in harmony. Everyone will become accomplished.” “I am grateful to Amitabha Buddha. I am grateful to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas for coming to bring away my past adversaries and creditors. I am grateful to the empowerment from Amitabha Buddha that expels my karmic hindrances.” “Buddha light can introduce my past adversaries and creditors to leave suffering and acquire happiness and enable them to be reborn in good realms. Amitabha Buddha!”

 

I could recall that I had never had such a big laugh so openly and freely. It lasted so long to transmit joy and happiness to others and was full of positive energy. I felt both happy and grateful. Even until long after the empowerment dharma assembly had ended, such joyful sense and awareness was still there. My mood was relaxed and delightful. My heart was filled with peace, kindness, and joy whenever I saw anyone or anything.

 

Next in September, Hua Zang Si held another session of the Dharma Assembly of Empowerment by Kuan Yin Bodhisattva’s Mind of Great Compassion. Due to the limitation on the number of attendees, we stayed outside the hall to receive empowerment.

 

The experience of this time was not quite the same as the last time. We sat with our eyes closed. The attendees first chanted the Six Character Great Bright Mantra and then chanted their own mantras. I immediately felt that there was a flow of black air rolling in my chest. So I began to spit it out and also yelled loudly. I kept doing that until completely spitting that black air out. Then there was a flow of warm air rising from my back. At that time, my body felt rather warm, even though I was sitting on the cold floor.

 

A Buddhist nun before me stood up and began to dance and rotating. From time to time, I felt the lap of her clothing waving by my face. She also laid herself down. I felt the movement of her hands and feet. Her feet kicked toward me. I spontaneously stepped backward.

 

At this time, I heard all kinds of sound in the hall. Someone was chanting the Buddha’s name in a tone of soprano. The sound of patting was also heard. I gradually calmed down and felt that my body became lighter and was within auspicious and peaceful light. I felt that I was in the sky viewing the scene from above. I saw mountains, ocean, and buildings. The views in front of my eyes were played like in a movie.

 

The empowerment from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas are truly inconceivable. Even those of us who were outside the hall also received benefits of different types. I am greatly moved! Again, I am grateful to the empowerment from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, and all Buddhias and Bodhisattvas!

The Dharma Water Manifests Buddha Power– The Sincere Prayers to Buddhas Clear Unknown Illness

The Dharma Water Manifests Buddha Power

The Dharma Water Manifests Buddha Power

The Sincere Prayers to Buddhas Clear Unknown Illness

 

In Mid-October 2011, when layperson Ling-Xian Chen from New York came to San Francisco to visit Hua Zang Si (a temple in United States that propagates the dharma of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III), she came to my place to listen to the Dharma. When I saw her, she seemed very gloomy. After a few words with her, I learned that her daughter-in-law, Su-Qing Chen in Taiwan was suffering from an unknown illness. She had  gone through several examinations at various hospitals and still could not find the cause of it. She was in agonizing pain and her body was so weak that her weight had gone down to 39 kilos. Layperson Ling-Xian Chen was very worried about this and was about to rush back to pay her a visit in Taiwan. At that time, I recalled that I had the Dharma water empowered by the Buddha. I made a small bottle for her and asked her to bring it to her daughter-in-law. I also asked her to tell her daughter-in-law to have faith in Buddha Dharma, truly repent her beginning-less karmic hindrances and sincerely beseech empowerment from the Buddhas.

After layperson Ling-Xian Chen arrived in Taiwan, she then learned that her daughter-in-law had suffered from the illness since the beginning of the year. Her symptoms started with skin rashes and itchiness. She had sought cures from everywhere to no avail. Then in October her illness got worse. She was not able to swallow. If she drank, the water would flow out of her nostrils; if she ate, the food would get stuck in her throat. The last resort was nasogastric intubation for feeding. On October 18, they found the name of the illness – dermatomyositis, but there was no cure for it. They could only treat her with corticosteroids or antibiotics. Afterwards, she experienced chest pain as a result of liquid retention in the lungs. They took out the liquid, yet the chest pain did not go away. After another check-up, they found a tear in the esophagus. Feeding through a tube was then stopped.

November 5 was the first time when layperson Ling-Xian Chen fed her daughter-in-law the Dharma water. She poured the pure Dharma water in the tube and asked her daughter-in-law how she felt about it. She said that it felt good and tasted fragrant. Afterwards, layperson Ling-Xian Chen poured the rest of the Dharma water evenly in several mineral water bottles. Every day she gave some of it to her daughter-in-law and comforted her daughter-in-law saying that with the Dharma water, she will receive the empowerment from the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. As long as she has faith, she will have hope.

The prolong use of antibiotics and corticosteroids lead to anemia and malnutrition. At one point her limbs almost fell paralyzed and she could not even take care of her biological needs. To restore the tube feeding, the tube was inserted all the way to the small intestine which was a very painful process. After the evaluations were done by several departments, they decided on a surgery to suture the tear on the esophagus. On December 16, while in the surgery, the surgeons found that the tear of the esophagus had gotten too big, like the shape of a trumpet, to suture. They also found two additional small holes next to the heart. At the end, they redirected the tube from the top to a lower position and decided on a gastrostomy tube placement surgery which was then scheduled on January 4. After the surgery, her daughter-in-law was placed in ICU.

During this period of time, layperson Ling-Xian Chen insisted on feeding her daughter-in-law the mineral water mixed with the Dharma water. She had drunken seven or eight bottles all together. Gadu Rinpoche had chanted a sutra and beseeched blessings for her. The monastics of Hua Zang Si also have dedicated their merits to her. While she was waiting for the g-tube placement surgery, a miracle happened. On January 3, before the surgery, in an endoscope exam, they found that tissues around the tear had grown and as a result closed the opening. The doctors were stunned by this and said that a surgery was not necessary any more. After two weeks of observation, the feeding tube was then taken out. After taking another X-ray of the esophagus to ensure of no opening, she was then released. One month after, she gradually recovered. She was then able to swallow without problems. Now, she is strong enough to talk and move freely.

The entire family of layperson Ling-Xian Chen was very moved. Her daughter-in-law also truly thanked the empowerment from the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. She took refuge in Buddhism and sincerely took on the Bodhi path of Buddhist practice and cultivation. This true story again proves that Buddha Dharma is magnificent and the highest. It manifests immeasurable power that is true and not false. As long as one is sincere to the Buddhas, truly repents the beginning-less negative karma as a result of ignorance, becomes determined to learn from the Buddha and do only good, and cultivate in accordance with the Dharma, one will definitely receive empowerment from the Buddhas, eradicate all afflictions and sufferings caused by karmic hindrances, and obtain peace and happiness. Amitabha!

I Am Grateful to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

I Am Grateful to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

I Am Grateful to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

I recall that it was 2007. At that time I just changed my job and thus was very busy. Sometimes I had to work overtime for the whole night and still had to work the next day. Doing that for long was more than what my body and mind could bear. I was like a robot working continuously without stop. I felt that human life was just for the three meals and I had to work incessantly.

Also, I had to spend considerable time and mental effort. Therefore, sometimes I would feel sad for no obvious reason. It was until my friend led me to the Bodhi Monastery in LA to listen respectfully to the recorded dharma discourses expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Then, my whole person was like being fully charged and my heart was filled by indescribable joy, as if I had found a treasure that could let my mind feel satisfaction and pleasure. Since then, I always went to Bodhi Monastery on holidays and whenever I had time.

Also at that time, due to being too tired from so much work, I had chronic headache. When the pain came, it was truly horrible. I felt so painful like being hit by a hammer. My nose bled sometimes too. I went to doctors for that and had all kinds of examinations, but no cause could be found. At that time, I thought about reducing my workload, but was afraid of affecting the work progress. Also, that could not alleviate my problem of headache either. I was very much plagued and did not know what I should do.

Once, after listening respectfully to the recorded dharma discourses expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, I chatted with a dharma master of the monastery about my physical situation. The dharma master gave me a red-colored holy pill (nectar pill) and let me take it orally. After returning home, I felt that my body was like being pinched by needles, as if undergoing a session of acupuncture. The feeling traveled like flowing throughout my body. I did not give much thought about that at the time. Then, without knowing how long it was after that, I suddenly realized while at work that I no longer had headache or nose bleeding recently. At that time, I recalled the sense and feeling I had after taking the nectar pill and returning home. I was moved to tears. I had this illness of headache for quite a few years. It could not be cured by treatment. I was very excited and shouted spontaneously:

I am grateful to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III! I am grateful to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III! I am grateful to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III! His Holiness the Buddha let me have this karmic condition to encounter the true dharma of the Tathagata and let me receive empowerment physically and mentally. I am willing to continuously make my effort in my entire life to follow H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III to learn the true dharma of the Tathagata and I will never stop.

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!”

 

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!

when no money, no job, no home, and my dear love gone

 

The Dharma of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has changed my life

– when no money, no job, no home, and my dear love gone

 

It’s a warm sunny Monday in California as I sit in my local cafe and sip my cup of tea. Today, I share my personal journey of pain, suffering and loss and how I have come to experience a joyful and fulfilled life.

 

I, Patricia Ann Farrell, a disciple of His Holiness Dorje Chang Buddha III, today will share out of great compassion for all living beings, a personal story of how I transformed my pain from a loss of the dearest love in my life.

 

In June 2014, I received the news my love, Buddhist brother, musical performing partner, and best friend left this world. I was at my Buddhist temple, Hua Zang Si in San Francisco, CA. As I was speaking to one of the monastics (nun), I received a call that my love had passed away. It was very fortunate to be at my temple when the call came! I could not even speak. I handed the phone to the monastic and went to the Sakyamuni Buddha Hall in the temple. As I cried in shock and pain, I bowed to the visage of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and the solemn 22-foot statue of Sakyamuni Buddha (Disciple of a manifestation of Dorje Chang Buddha) The place I was certain to receive help was from the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in this time of deep pain and suffering! I was overwhelmed with this notion of such a loss. My pain was like a sharp knife in my heart!

 

I have been learning the true Buddha-dharma of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III for fifteen years and have received limitless blessings over the years which has helped me to transform my heart-wrenching pain into joy and happiness today!

 

On this day in June 2014, I was told by the monastic, “Patricia, do not worry about your future!” The faith in my heart deep as all the oceans knew this: my pain could not allow me to see through the thick fog of my mind! I knew my journey as a Buddhist disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was going to assist others to liberation and that working through my pain and turmoil was preparing me to do so. Today, I am very clear and certain of this fact!

 

Almost three years later….I now, share with you deep from my heart, my own truth:

 

“How can I not worry about my future,” I asked myself. I was on unemployment at the time of his passing with only two months left till I had no money! I would also have to move from our beautiful home and find a new place to live, but how? No money, no job, no home and my dear love gone, all at once!!! My faith, cultivation level and how I would choose to apply my learning from the true Buddha dharma of my Buddha Master, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, would be put to a test. I knew my greatest work as a Buddhist disciple to benefit living beings was about to begin!

 

I received a call from my brother in Florida, he said: “Sister, come down here and live with us, be here with family!” Sure….I could live in a very big beautiful home, no stress, comfortable and safe. That sounded really sweet. I even considered it for a few days! I asked myself, “how can I possibly go towards safe and comfort when there are so many living beings suffering like myself?” I had the “key” to unlock all of the suffering of the world. It would be selfish for me to throw away this key for even “ONE DAY!” I am so fortunate to be a human in this world and have even greater fortune to encounter the true holy Buddha-dharma of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.

 

“NO!”, I shouted in my head, ”this is my own karma and I need to clean it up so I may help others.” This was my vow and deep motivation to keep moving forward with a heart of compassion for my own suffering, so that I may deepen my compassion for others! My cultivation, learning the Buddha-dharma from my Buddha Master, volunteering at my temple Hua Zang Si and assisting my community together, brought me the good fortune of receiving financial assistance from my Buddhist brothers and sisters at my temple as well as a place to live, food and an abundance of loving support from the sangha at my Temple and my Buddhist family!  Within three months, I had a wonderful job and my own apartment in a beautiful small community in the east bay!

 

Today, almost three years later, my financial fortune has increased, my job is wonderful and fulfilling, my community is growing and abundant, my health is good, and my pain has transformed to brightness and joy in my heart! Life will always have its difficulties and challenges, I do experience them. However, I have great joy in my heart knowing I have that “key” – the key of learning the true holy Buddha-dharma of Sakyamuni Buddha and my Buddha Master, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. This is the very true reason I was able to be with my pain and deep suffering while continuing my Buddhist studies, volunteering at my temple and assisting others while re-building my whole life from scratch!

 

I concluded knowing deep in my heart that others’ suffering is my own suffering.

I am neither different nor better than you,

I am just fortunate to have found the key to unlock the suffering of my own karma!

 

With a humble heart and deep gratitude to my Buddha Master,

H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III,

All Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in the ten directions,

My Buddhist brothers and sisters,

The wonderful sangha of Hua Zang Si,

 

May all the merits from sharing my personal story benefit all living beings whom are my family to have a happy and prosperous life with good health and an abundance of good fortune!

 

Amitabha Buddha!

With a sincere and humble heart,

Patricia Ann Farrell, a Buddhist disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

發表於 Elder Monk Yin Hai Created an Unprecedented Holy Manifestation in the History of Buddhism after His Entering Nirvana

Record of Vajra Sharira Has Now Been Created in the History of Buddhism, from the Holy Manifestation and Anecdotes of Elder Monk Yin Hai

Record of Vajra Sharira Has

It has been several months since the unprecedented and greatest holy feat started to be spread by praises in the Buddhist World! In December last year, Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai informed His disciples ahead of time that He was about to enter nirvana. Based on the Elder Dharma Master’s causes and affinities, the condition for a holy assembly of 100 sessions would mature at the time of His entering nirvana. This holy assembly could not be decided by human actions, nor could it be determined by Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai or a Buddha at a higher level. Such holy assembly is due to the rising of the causes and affinities of a kind of great event. Exactly as forecasted, on January 15, 2017 and in the state of California of the United States, the Elder Dharma Master instantly entered nirvana in a state that was completely free of any symptom of illness and accomplished an incorruptible Vajra body. Ten days later, the Elder Dharma Master’s holy flesh body manifested a miraculous transformation, which created a new chapter in the history of Buddhism. The Elder Dharma Master was the chief teacher of the Tripitaka of sutras, vinayas, and shastras (commentaries) at the United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters (UIWBAH, now the name has been changed to the World Buddhism Association Headquarters (WBAH)). The magnificent situation manifested when He entered the nirvana is compatible to the Elder Dharma Master’s realization and status: a Yu Zun at the level of Golden Button Grade 4. His dharma throne has now returned to His upper-level lotus seat in the Pure Land.

Record of Vajra Sharira Has 1
The two contrasting photos of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai’s flesh body, with one taken at 11 hours after the nirvana showing deep wrinkles on a dry, thin, and very aged face and the other taken on the 24th day after the nirvana that presented a fully-figured, smooth, lustrous, and perfectly majestic visage. A miraculous transformation took place that caused the two pictures to look like two completely different persons. This is the first Vajra-relic flesh-body remains ever known in the history of Buddhism.

 

Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai was a hidden practitioner in great cultivation. Still, many abbots of temples and monasteries possessing rather high realizations were His disciples. Wang Zha Shang Zun, who leads the dharma affairs at UIWBAH and served as the chief proctor in the examination held recently by UIWBAH, is also His disciple. The examination in the holy realm using the Vajra Battle Position was a dharma transmitted from Yin Hai Yu Zun (aka Tai Zun) to Wang Zha Shang Zun. Several decades ago, the Elder Dharma Master traveled west and moved to the United States to cultivate and practice privately. The accomplishment He realized from cultivation and practice manifested publicly before numerous Buddhist disciples. The magnificent manifestation from the scene of His nirvana provided a way to broadly save living beings and point them toward the path of accomplishing Buddha-hood. Moreover, His magnificent accomplishment and holy feats also showed that the dharma He learned from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is utmost high and the holiest.

 

More than 10 years ago, due to the retribution manifested from causes and effects of past lifetimes, Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai’s foot tenderloins were cut and severed. He died of excessive bleeding but revived five days later. After coming back to life, the first sentence He spoke was, “There must not be any action to hurt those who harmed me.” This is exactly the mind and conduct of clearly believing in the law of cause and effect and practicing and carrying out the Most Excellent Enlightenment Emptiness-Practice Oceanic Mind Essence in the Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation with tremendously great compassion and selflessness. However, with a special empowerment by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, the foot tenderloins grew back to normal on the same day. On the spot, the Elder Monk even held up a person weighing close to 150 pounds and walked several steps while carrying the person. After that, He was able to walk a distance while carrying a load. The expedient recovery can truly be described as “miraculously fast.” In January this year, Holy Monk Yin Hai entered nirvana again, with a forecast made one month before then. On December 30 of last year, Wang Zha Shang Zun, the chief abbot and chief proctor of UIWBAH, stated to the public in His remarks concluding the examination in the holy realm, “I first congratulate the Buddhists possessing master’s qualification who passed the examination and received their grade levels. This is a holy event to be heard happily. However, I will also announce a holy event of sorrow. A holy monk whose nine precept-scars once emitted light to break the darkness in a closed room, who is the foremost holy monk in the world, and whom I respect the most will leave us in January next year. He will create an unprecedented holy manifestation in the history of Buddhism. This will be a great happy event and should be joyfully celebrated!”

 

You can all ponder the significance of this. How can severed foot tenderloins grew back to normal! A revival occurred five days after death. Yin Hai Yu Zun revived after His death and lived more than ten years since then. From that time to the time of His entering nirvana at the beginning of this year, the Elder Monk never had any illness or misfortune. The most mysterious and miraculous fact is that the Elder Dharma Master’s health was always as healthy as a young person from every physical examination He took. What happened this time was that the Elder Monk suddenly left the world in an instant of one second in a state that was totally free of any symptom of illness or calamity. Being able to live or die according to one’s own wish means one has truly realized the freedom from birth and death! In the earlier years, Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai manifested many holy feats of miraculous transformation. After a miraculous transformation, His muscles and skins were as fine, tender, and smooth at that of a new-born baby. Furthermore, such holy state was maintained for as long as six years. This is the result of practicing the dharma of reversing old age back to youth in the Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation. The miraculous transformation that the Holy Venerable manifested this time after entering nirvana once again prominently showed the high and profound stage and state of His realization and is an unprecedented holy event in the history of Buddhism. The Elder Dharma Master is the one and only holy venerable who manifested miraculous transformations after entering nirvana from ancient time to the present. He wrote a new holy chapter about nirvana in the history of Buddhism. Please ponder deeply again on who caused a dead person to revive. The cause is the Holy Venerable’s accomplishment and practice.

旺扎上尊為因海長老題寫的讚頌偈-8

 

One of the two inscribing couplets written by a tremendously holy virtuous one for Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai (The text says, “Elder Dharma Master created a new chapter in the history of Buddhism, with a great transformation taking place 10 days after nirvana that changed His flesh body into a majestic face; The Eminent Monk broke old records on the religious calendar, 6 years ago while He was alive when His holy body powerfully manifested a miraculously different appearance.”)

WBAH is densely populated by outstanding persons and holy ones. From what I know, there are at least two Yu Zuns at the level of Golden Button Grade 4, two Shang Zuns at the level of Golden Button Grade 3, two Jiao Zuns at the level of Golden Button Grade 2, and four Ru Zuns at the level of Golden Button Grade 1. The Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions was presided in person by Yin Hai Yu Zun and Wang Zha Shang Zun, as well as Gekan Deqian Shile Yu Zun and Diou Ke Shang Zun. This sentence truly sounds miraculous, “The Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions was presided in person by Yin Hai Yu Zun,” a person who has already entered nirvana and is laying in His coffin. How could He preside over the holy assembly? Actually, “this death is really not a death.” The death of a flesh body is really a false death. Though Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai had died, various signs of life continued to appear, including the continual growth of His beard, gradual changing of His facial type from a thin and bony face to a fully figured one, having finer and tender skin day by day, and even the growing longer of His fingers. These phenomena went against the process of formation, abiding, decaying, and vanishing and manifested an appearance of reversing old age back to youth after death. Such change in one’s appearance can only appear as a result of practicing Buddha-dharma. This fact shows that the Elder Dharma Master’s spiritual existence is unlike that of an ordinary being which has to reply on a stinky body packed inside the skin and, rather, is the manifestation of the treasure from Buddha-dharma. A public announcement issued by UIWBAH pointed out the nature of this “Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions,” which means it is a grand dharma assembly of tremendous holiness. Specifically, it is a grand dharma assembly led by tremendously holy ones. For instance, the “Vulture Peak Dharma Assembly” held by Sakyamuni Buddha was over once it ended. There is no such a thing that any dharma master or holy virtuous one can hold his/her own “Vulture Peak Dharma Assembly” at any place. This is because the “Vulture Peak Dharma Assembly” was a specific and unique dharma assembly. As another example, the “Sutra-Gathering Assembly” held at Saptaparna-guha no longer exists after the meeting ended. Even if another 200 holy ones and Arhats gather there again to talk about and discuss the teachings from the sutras, there can never be a “Sutra-Gathering Assembly” again. The “Sutra-Gathering Assembly” is defined by its specific time, location, dharma matters, and presiding holy ones and is a unique dharma assembly with definitive characteristics.

 

Now let’s see how the curtain of this holy assembly of 100 sessions was lifted:

 

Due the limitation of the funeral home located in the Los Angeles area in the United States, there was no way to keep Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai’s flesh body there for too long. With the responsibility to make arrangement for the holy assembly of 100 sessions, Wang Zha Shang Zun decided on the eighth day to move the holy flesh body to the Kuan Yin Hall at a temple in the greater Los Angeles area that was not open to the public yet. At the moment when H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III consecrated the Kuan Yin Hall where the holy flesh body of Yin Hai Yu Zun was to be worshipped, a heavy rainstorm immediately stopped and the sky became completely blue without any cloud in sight. At that time, about 1000 vajra parrots (Note: the number is about 1000, not several dozens.) flew over from afar and encircled above the Kuan Yin Hall for several dozens of rounds. The roaring sound of the parrots was ear-trembling, as if the buildings and the ground were shaken. The parrots’ praising applause even caused swirling waves in a tea cup on the table. Please imagine how rare and magnificent the scene was! Their performance lifted the curtain for the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions. The arrival of such a crowd of about 1000 vajra parrots was extremely auspicious and magnificent.

 

After that, Wang Zha Shang Zun made the arrangement to have the seven types of Buddhist disciples chant sutras in front of the holy body every day. On each day, three dharma assemblies were held. During the entire period of 24 hours, there were always 6 to 8 people chanting the holy name of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva without a pause. Since Holy Venerable Yin Hai had practiced The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation in combination with the dharma of Red Kuan Yin of Magnificent Ocean of Great Compassion, His holy body worshipped in the Kuan Yin Hall emitted special fragrant scent or light from time to time. Watched by all people’s eyes, the holy body underwent a miraculous transformation day by day. According to what I, a humble cultivator, saw with my own eyes from attending the three dharma assemblies every day for several consecutive days, the Yu Zun’s holy body gradually turned whiter and more delicate each day, His beard was growing day by day, and His facial complexion became more lively red every day. His appearance became more and more perfect and majestic as time went by. On the tenth day after His entering nirvana, with a permission from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, Great Dharma Masters Ruo Hui and Miao Kong who are the abbot and deputy abbot respectively of Hua Zang Si, Great Dharma Master Long Hui who is the head of Hua Zang Buddhist Institute, Abbot of the Pagoda Temple Xiongge Qiongwa and Long Zhou Rinpoche who are the co-founders of True Buddha-Dharma Center, Great Dharma Master Jue Hui of International Buddhism Sangha Association (IBSA) and others used their hands to touch the Yu Zun’s holy body and found that the holy body was as hard as a Vajra stone. Great Dharma Master Long Hui, who once performed the dharma of Five Thunder True Dharma Palm to break an orange tree at a distance of more than 10 feet, stated publicly that she purposely applied a large force to press the Yu Zun’s cheek which is typically the softest spot and her hand was reflected back. The Yu Zun’s muscle was as hard as a rock and exerted an unimaginably large force of reaction. This fact made the attending crowd realize in astonishment that the Yu Zun’s holy body leaped through the common procedure of waiting for three years while the holy body is covered by a large vase before checking whether the holy body of one who has attained very good accomplishment is incorruptible and turned into a whole-body relic after only ten days. Additionally, the holy body showed a miraculous transformation to manifest a perfectly majestic appearance!

Before transforming into a rainbow body, the remains of one who has attained a great accomplishment in Buddha-dharma cannot be touched by people. In particular, if contacted by one who has violated precepts of esoteric Buddhism, the invasion and disturbance of karmic force would prevent the body from transforming into a rainbow body. That was why Wang Zha Shang Zun was very angry about the more than 10 people who even touched the Yu Zun’s holy body. The Shang Zun said that, although the holy body had been touched by more than 10 people, it was fortunate that the Yu Zun was not affected due to the rather high stage and state He had attained. After that incident, no one was allowed to touch or contact the Elder Dharma Master’s holy body that had already turned into a Vajra body. Still, this incident did not affect the miraculous transformation incurred in the Yu Zun’s holy body.

 

The Yu Zun’s holy body rested in open space through the entire process without being stored in a freezer at all and was in the same chamber as the attending crowd was in. The coffin was only covered by a transparent acrylic encasement, to prevent dust brought up by the many people from contacting the holy body. According to common knowledge, after undergoing such a process for so many days, a person’s remains should have corrupted and should have been generating stinky smells long ago. However, the Yu Zun’s holy body only became more and more majestic as time went by. Cultivators who entered the hall where the coffin was rested felt an atmosphere of auspiciousness and peace, as if being in a different space that is filled with bliss. I drove there by myself. When I left during the day after a session of the dharma assembly had ended, the sky was always embellished by auspicious clouds. On a sunny day, the view was truly splendid and beautiful while hearing blissful bird singing along the way. When driving toward the temple in the evening, I saw the bright illumination of a clear moon surrounded by auspicious clouds. Sometimes, the Moon and the stars emitted competing light rays. The penetrating sound of clear and loud singing of birds crossed through the otherwise silent and tranquil sky embedded with stars.

 

According to the law of the United States of America, staff of a funeral home must move the body to the burying ground no later than the 32-th day. On the eve of the burial, the professionals working at the funeral home who came to examine the body found: After 31 days, the original physical characteristics of the Elder Monk lying in the coffin had totally disappeared; An elderly thin person with a protruding bony face full of wrinkles turned into a totally different person with a perfectly majestic appearance; His purely white beard not only grew longer and denser but also had three black strains added. Moreover, two of the fingers also grew longer. Facing such unprecedented magnificent scene, the professionals at the funeral home who had processed countless dead bodies were stunned and offered praises and respect repeatedly.

因海長老圓寂當天十一個小時以後,大家與長老拍照-4A photo taken at 11 hours after Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai entered nirvana

On the 32-th day, the Holy Monk’s revered body was moved to the holy site for burial and worshipping. Rituals and orders of Buddhism were followed. With four rinpoches including Gongga Rinp[oche, Chuanggu Tulku and others carrying the coffin, the holy body arrived at the holy site. When the dharma assembly of chanting sutras started, we saw several dozens of eagles circling above the holy site at a low vertical height of several stories from the attending crowd! In esoteric dharmas, eagles represent the Golden-Wing Garuda while crows represent the Mahakala Dharma Protector. The presence of a crowd of eagles encircling at the site symbolizes the arrival of the Golden-Wing Garuda to manifest the dharma and that Sakyamuni Buddha came! Also present were herds of crows representing the Mahakala Dharma Protector. They were lingering in the sky above the holy site, while singing praises in the language of birds. What did this fact show? It showed that the accomplishment of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai was praised by Sakyamuni Buddha!

 

After the site was moved from the Kuan Yin Hall to the holy place at the Rose Hills Memorial Park, the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions continued to be held every day. At the start of each session of the dharma assembly, the staff members of the memorial park at the site saw that eagles and crows would fly over, with unusual body movements while flying and somewhat different tones of singing. They would immediately fly away at the end of the dharma assembly. Such holy manifestations and expressions of the dharma were certainly a part of leading the holy assembly by Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai. By definition, the “Holy Assembly of 100 sessions” must comprise 100 dharma assemblies held and completed at the site that is where the Elder Dharma Master is.

 

Then, how did the holy assembly of 100 sessions conclude? On the day when the holy assembly of 100 sessions had the perfect ending, the great Los Angeles area was raining on the west side but the sky was clear on the east side. An extremely obvious double rainbow appeared in the sky. As the rainbow gradually faded away, two golden dragons emerged from the orange-colored afterglow, expressing the praises from both human and heaven realms. I specifically took a picture of this magnificent scene to share with all. Also, the trees of red flowers planted above the holy place had branches that had grown densely and fully bloomed with flowers all over the trees, showing a sign of prosperity. In contrast, the trees near other graves planted with the same spacing between them had only dried branches and almost completely withered flowers. I also took pictures to provide a proof of the magnificence of this holy place.

 

The accomplishment and holy realization of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai achieved the status of “Yu Zun,” which represents the level of Golden Button Grade 4 in the system of grade levels published by UIWBAH. This level is only next to the level of Golden Button Grade 5, which is for Bodhisattvas with universal enlightenment or wonderful enlightenment. That is why Wang Zha Shang Zun called Him as the first-place holy monk in the current world. His accomplishment means He is not a common holy monk and, rather, He is a top-level holy monk. That is why he absolutely cannot be described with titles such as elder monk, great virtuous one, or elder dharma master.

A picture was taken on the day when the holy assembly of 100 sessions concluded perfectly. The holy site where Yin Hai Yu Zun’s holy body rests for worshipping is at the east side of the greater Los Angeles area and had a heavy rain. In the west direction, the sky was completely clear. Two arc-shaped rainbows appeared in the rainy side of east. The first one, the inner ring, was extremely bright. The dark colored areas between two rainbows resembled an arc-shaped heavenly path with seven-colored borders. The lower-left picture shows the gradual fading of the two rainbows. Within the orange-colored afterglow, two hazy golden dragons could be seen.

 

 

With the perfect conclusion of such magnificent holy assemblies of 100 sessions, what kind of merit was produced? The merit is greater than that accumulated from holding several thousand or even several ten thousand sessions of dharma assemblies. The opportunity of attending such a holy assembly is truly hard to encounter even in millions of kalpas. Wang Zha Shang Zun who is at the level of Golden Button Grade 3 will hold the Initiation of Dharma Affinity with the Yidam for cultivators who have a perfect attendance of the 100 sessions of the holy assembly. The merit required for receiving this Initiation of Dharma Affinity with the Yidam cannot be achieved by a common cultivator even after cultivating for several thousand or more than ten thousand lifetimes. However, a cultivator who had perfect attendance of the 100 sessions of the holy assembly can gain such merit. During the initiation, your yidam will come to the mandala in person to have a conversation with you and transmit the dharma to you. This is because the merit from the Holy Assembly will give rise to special karmic conditions. It was said that another such holy event took place in this world about 2000 years ago. The attendees dedicated the merit to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to gather tremendous merit in return to increase their benefits and resources for cultivation. The fact is that the Yu Zun does not need them to assist with the chanting. Rather, the purpose of their chanting Buddhas’ names and reciting sutras is to take advantage of the Elder Dharma Master’s empowerment to create and perfect their resources for cultivation. How could Buddhas and Bodhisattvas need people with stinky bodies of five turbidities to assist with their chanting? Even if you chanted for 1000 years, the merit accumulated would still be less than the Elder Dharma Master’s merit from practicing the dharma for just one day.

 

Yin Hai Yu Zun was a hidden practitioner with great cultivation. Not much about the Elder Monk was known to the outside world. The Yu Zun once wrote this verse, “Since ancient times holy and kind ones mostly live in loneliness. Actually only ones hiding from the world leave their names in history. One should never do anything evil and should do all acts of kindness, have a heart of great compassion and be free of any evil or fraud. Your origin does not belong to any sect or school. You should accumulate merit from doing goodness to enter the door to the dharma. To quest true Buddha-dharma at the summit level, follow me to become a student of the School of Buddha.”

 

The School of Buddha represents authentic Buddhism and is not a sect of any patriarch. The fact is that the School of Buddha affiliates directly with the teaching and dharma transmission by the Buddha in person and has no classification in terms of various sects and schools of later generations. Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai also told the Shang Zun that the best and the highest Buddha-dharma of cultivation is The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation. The Vajra dharma transmitted by Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai to the Shang Zun is not just solely in exoteric Buddhism or esoteric Buddhism and, rather, is directly in the Buddha’s Buddhism. For example, the Diamond Sutra mentioned the Eight Great Vajras, including Ucchusma Vajra (the Filthy Vajra) of Tang (Tang is a dynasty in the history of mandarin China.) Esoteric Buddhism and Kalachakra Vajra and Yamantaka Vajra of Tibetan Esoteric Buddhism. In which sect or school should these Vajras be categorized? The truth is that They simply are not in the lineage or dharma tradition of any sect or school and directly belong to authentic Buddhism. Therefore, They are in the School of Buddha rather than the dharma lineages of patriarch masters and belong to pure Buddhism.

 

People wish to know the feats and events in Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai’s life. I once interviewed a Buddhist disciple with the last name of Tang. From what he remembered, it was around the year of 1980 or 37 years ago when he was assigned to go to the airport to receive Elder Monk Yin Hai who was returning to Sichuan after visiting France. At that time, there were eight people who were abbots and khenpos in the Elder Monk’s entourage. This Buddhist disciple, Mr. Tang, said that he felt that Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai was very kind and polite. From the two walking distances of from getting off the airplane to the receiving vehicle and from getting out of the vehicle to the lodging room at the hotel, he noticed that the Elder Dharma Master’s feet were always floating in the air, at a distance of 4 to 5 centimeters above the ground! This observation left a very deep impression in him. Later, Master Wan Ko Yee Museum was built in the Dayi County of Sichuan Province. One day before the Museum’s grand opening, Elder Dharma Master Pu Guan who was the 13-th patriarch of Mt. Emei and also the abbot of Kaihua Temple at Mt. Wuzhong which was the first stop in the spread of Buddhism southward, Elder Dharma Master Tong Hui who was the abbot of Long Ju Temple, and Elder Dharma Master Guo Zhang who was the abbot of Jie Wang Temple accompanied Holy Monk Yin Hai to the Master’s Museum. They were disciples of Holy Monk Yin Hai. At that time, the Museum was still under construction with dust and mud all over the site. Also, it had been raining for several days. The road was covered with thin mud and cement paste just mixed for construction. As they walked from the gate of the Jinghuishan Park to the site of the Museum, the path was completely wet and covered with puddles and mud. People had to step on pieces of bricks to go in. With the previous experience, he paid special attention to Holy Monk Yin Hai’s feet. He said that, after walking through the muddy road surface to enter the Kuan Yin Hall, everyone’s shoes were very dirty with lots of mud. The only exception was Holy Monk Yin Hai, whose shoes of white bottoms were completely clean without any mud stain. As He walked inside the Kuan Yin Hall, the path behind Him was completely clean, without any footprints. Simply speaking, Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai did not walk on the ground to get to the Kuan Yin Hall. Rather, He traveled forward while floating above the road surface! This scene was seen by many of the people who were present.

 

If you have a good memory, can you recall the historic incident when Master Bodhidharma, the first patriarch of the Zen School, crossed a large river using a stick of reed? Some people saw that Patriarch Bodhidharma picked up a stick of reed and then stepped onto it to cross the river, without taking a ferry boat. The state of accomplishment that Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai manifested demonstrated exactly the ability to offset gravity and walk in the air. Then, are walking without touching the ground and walking on a surface of water the same thing? What do you think? As I write here, this is the right place to mention the karmic affinity between Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai and Wang Zha Shang Zun who is at the level of Golden Button Grade 3.

 

Wang Zha Shang Zun spoke about the rising of the affinity that caused He and Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai to know each other. The affinity was related to a surface of water. Several decades ago and at the Jinsha River (a big river separating Tibet and Sichuan Province), Wang Zha Shang Zun saw Elder Monk Yin Hai walking on the surface of water to cross the river. From the river bank, He prostrated to the Elder Monk. The Elder Monk turned His face back and asked loudly, “Why do you prostrate to me?” Holding His palms together, Wang Zha asked, “Holy monk, what is this dharma?” The Elder Monk replied, “Dharma has no fixed name. Form is emptiness. Floating on the surface of water is a skin-shallow manifestation.” Wang Zha Shang Zun asked, “Can you keep teaching me the profound esoteric dharma?” The Elder Monk said, “The Vajra Battle Position can recognize and distinguish what is upright and what is evil, and can destroy demons into ashes.” From then on, Wang Zha Shang Zun followed the Elder Monk to enter a cave in a deep mountain to practice the profound dharma in retreat.

 

Wang Zha Shang Zun said that the Elder Dharma Master’s holy realization and cultivated power are very great and strong. The Shang Zun said that, in His early years, He practiced the dharma together with Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai in a cave in a deep mountain. At that time, the Shang Zun once accidentally saw that the nine precept-scars on top of the Elder Dharma Master’s head emitted light rays that illuminated the completely dark retreat chamber as if it was under open daylight to instantly save living beings of non-human realms to higher realms. The Shang Zun also said that Elder Monk Yin Hai transmitted the dharma of Vajra Battle Position to Him. Additionally He became a disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III through the introduction by the Elder Monk. To express His gratitude to the unlimited kindness and virtue from the Elder Monk, the Shang Zun wrote a verse using the official-script style of Chinese calligraphy, which says, “The merit of Monk Yin Hai shines splendidly the sky and the ground. The nine holes of His precept-scars once emitted light to illuminate a dark retreat room. This greatly compassionate and accomplished one cultivating in seclusion has left His name to the world. Following His wish, He has returned to His upper-level lotus seat in the World of Ultimate Bliss. After entering nirvana, the flesh body of this holy venerable one will undergo a miraculous transformation. A new holy chapter of nirvana will be written in the history of Buddhism. In the past He and I practiced together in retreat in a cave in a deep mountain. Later we both went to the teaching of true Buddha-dharma and became close to the Buddha. Written by Buddhist Disciple and Humble Bhiksu Wang Zha Gong Bo, February 15, 2017”

 

Figure caption: The Verse of Praise written by Wang Zha Shang Zun for Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai.

 

In February 2017, WBAH published two contrasting visages of Holy Monk Yin Hai, one taken at 11 hours after His entering nirvana and the other showing the miraculous transformation occurred 10 days later, another visage of Holy Monk Yin Hai taken some years ago, and the Verse of Praise written by Wang Zha Shang Zun, for the seven types of Buddhist disciples to request respectively. Wang Zha Shang Zun said that He and Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai had received initiations of state practice and the initiation of Buddha-bestowed nectar from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai is a great holy one who came again from the World of Ultimate Bliss to fulfill His vow and a greatly accomplished one in the dharma of Red Kuan Yin of Magnificent Ocean of Great Compassion Practiced with The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation. He has now returned to His upper-level lotus seat in the Pure Land.

 

As I write to this point, I would like to remind all readers. Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai has left this world, since He attained great accomplishment and returned to His upper-level lotus seat in the World of Ultimate Bliss. As cultivators, we should ask: Where is the source of His accomplishment? Can we also attain the accomplishment like Him to go to the lotus seats in the World of Ultimate Bliss? Would H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III meet me? How should we look for H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III to take refuge in, become His disciple, and learn the dharma? Only that is the greatest voice of good fortune that Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai brought to cultivators. Think about this: As soon as Wang Zha Shang Zun saw Elder Monk Yin Hai walking on the surface of water, He immediately became His disciple and followed Him to practice in retreat in a mountain cave to pursue accomplishment wholeheartedly. This is similar to the situation with Hui Ke, the second patriarch of the Zen School. After knocking off Master Bodhidharma’s teeth, he tried to follow him and chased him to the river side. There, he was told by the mariner that Master Bodhidharma had already crossed the river by stepping on a stick of reed without taking a ferry. He immediately realized that what he did was wrong and went to Master Bodhidharma to beseech the dharma. With a firm determination, he severed an arm to color the snow with his blood, to meet Master Bodhidharma’s requirement that he could only be transmitted the dharma if red snow came down from the sky. Now H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is staying in this world due to the karmic affinities and holds such supreme Buddha-dharma that can truly liberate living beings to ascend to the World of Ultimate Bliss where beings can rely on mental contemplation to enjoy food, clothing, eternal bliss, and the absence of impermanence. Aren’t we fools if we do not look for His Holiness the Buddha to be received and be transmitted with the dharma? Do we still want to be pulled by karmic forces in the six realms of transmigration or to be deluded by the hollow teachings given by those so-called great holy ones who cannot even guarantee themselves when their life is about to end? One who mistakenly follows a false holy one will transmigrate between birth and death in the six realms of samsara without a date to exit and will have endless suffering without the possibility of being liberated!

 

Let’s not talk about the fortunate affinity we have to pay respect to and meet H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III for now. Wang Zha Shang Zun who is a disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is already a truly great holy one. I once had the opportunity to take part in a session of the large form of the Eight-Wind Battle Position and saw in person the real manifestation of Buddha-dharma. Wang Zha Shang Zun used a rope to circle a zone on the ground to establish the levels of golden button(s). Then, absolutely no one could step into the ring encircled by the rope. Anyone getting close was bounced up and then fell to the ground and knocked unconscious. Let me ask, which great dharma king or great dharma master in today’s world has such true and real Buddha-dharma? I can say that there is simply not even one! Regardless of how high the statue or how big the fame, dharma kings or holy ones simply do not have true Buddha-dharma that can let people see the effect. They only have hollow speeches. Isn’t this true?

Dharma Assembly of Empowerment by Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva’s Mind of Great Compassion

DHARMA ASSEMBLY OF EMPOWERMENT BY KUAN SHI YIN BODHISATTVA_S MIND OF GREAT COMPASSION

 

——A NOTE WRITTEN AFTERWARDS TO DESCRIBE THE MOST MAGNIFICENT SCENE AT THE SITE

At 3 o’clock in the afternoon on September 1, 2016, the crowd gathered at the Sakyamuni Buddha Hall at Hua Zang Si in San Francisco, USA, finally welcomed the beginning of the Dharma Assembly of Empowerment by Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattvas Mind of Great Compassion, which they have eagerly waited for more than 10 years. The dharma assembly was led by the current abbess Great Dharma Master Ruo Hui to practice the dharma.

The dharma assembly was attended by monastics of the temple and laypersons of good faith. Some of them also served as dharma protectors during the dharma assembly. At that time, the wide, brightly illuminated, and clean great hall was in an atmosphere of plain and pure peace. All attendees were standing inside a wide and spacious area defined by blue-colored labels. After following the leading dharma master to prostrate three times to pay homage to the Buddha and practice the mantras, a brief introduction was given by Dharma Master Ruo Hui that stated the requirements for practicing the dharma to the attending crowd. Next, all followed her verbal signal to close eyes, stand with shoulders relaxed, and raise arms to the horizontal position to enter into the state of the dharma.

We are boundlessly grateful to the empowerment from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and the greatly loving and compassionate Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva! We are grateful to Dharma Master Ruo Hui for leading the dharma practice to let all monastics and laypersons who came to the empowerment dharma assembly to receive the magnificent empowerment from the Buddha power and generate responses at various degrees!

In less than one minute after the empowerment dharma assembly had started, Monastic Shi Zhengding was the first to begin swinging the upper body spontaneously to enter the state of getting empowerment. Immediately after, elder Monastic Shi Zhengjian standing in the first row also entered the state. Then, the sound of open and unconstrained laughing filled with dharma joy loudly reached every corner of the grand hall. A few minutes after the start, two elder laypersons standing in the last row began to bend their waists forward and either shake their body or knock their knees at the tune of a rhyming frequency. Did they do so by their own intention? We learned from the experience-sharing session held after the dharma assembly that they all individually received the magnificent empowerment from Kuan Yin Bodhisattva and the Buddha force. One can now lift both arms that could not be lifted by force for a long time. Also, the two kneels that were heavy, stiff, and painful due to fatigue and wearing have now been cured by the empowerment from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Also, another layperson described that she received nectar dropped down from Kuan Yin Bodhisattva’s willow branch and the pain in her shoulder and arm immediately disappeared.

My dharma name is Shi Zhengxin. I am also one of the attendees of this empowerment dharma assembly. I was standing at a position in the third row between two round pillars. The space around me was very wide and open, but I just stood there without any movement from beginning to end. The description from a monastic who is more senior than me is “Kept staying there like a wooden pole!” As seen from the recorded video, it truly appears that I did not move away from the position I stood at, did not change my body posture, did not open my eyes, and was not interfered by the external state. I now share some of the sensation and correspondence that occurred within me and my experience from the magnificent empowerment by the Buddha force:

With the instruction of “Begin!” from the master in charge, I immediately felt a cleansing and cool flow spread all over my body and percolating inside me.

During the first several minutes I still knew that I was standing inside the Sakyamuni Buddha Hall. The laughter from the senior monastics before me entered my ears and was echoing continuously. Then a monastic next to me fell to the ground and cried loudly, while stepping her feet on the floor. None of these incidents interfered with my clean and pure inner mind. A caption in motion with the writing of “Realizing there is no state outside the mind, no idea will be generated.” began to appear repeatedly inside my brain. Without knowing how long had passed thereafter, the caption disappeared without a trace. My body only felt cleanness, purity, and becoming empty. Next, the left hand vanished; the left arm vanished; the right hand vanished; and the right arm vanished. After that, my left foot, left leg, right foot, right leg, eyes, nose, and ears all successively disappeared, in this order. All of a sudden, my body transformed into a lump of white light and leaped upward into the space.

While ascending, I felt that the back-lower piece of my monastic robe flew up. Next, I was in the sky and passing through white clouds. I first saw the Sun. Then, while I continued to fly forward horizontally, the Moon came to me. At the moment of passing the Moon from below, a total and full illumination was before my eyes. Right after that, a huge round of rotating purple light that was expanding through the space pushed toward me from far away. My eyes were covered by white color. I raised my head to look upward and saw that the wavy white color was an extremely huge skirt. Looking further up, I saw the waist-long black long hair. Then I saw the left hand and the face. The skin was lustrously white like cream…… Ah, Kuan Yin Bodhisattva came! Yes, He is Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. His body brought breezy and refreshing wind. He passed from right to left lightly and swiftly before my eyes. He lightly and gently touched my raising hands with His tremendously big warm and soft but power-carrying hand. My face opened up a beautiful smile. At this time, without knowing why, I saw below that the crowd attending the dharma assembly were no longer in the Sakyamuni Buddha Hall and, rather, were in a magnificently majestic palace, where beautifully pleasing heavenly music was playing and echoing. I tried to identify and recognize everyone, but they were not whom I knew in the crowd. Then they and the sound from them went further and further away from me.

Next, my both hands slowly descended down to my waist. Then, I put my palms together in front of my chest and formed a mudra that I had never made before. When the dharma assembly ended, the time was exactly 52 minutes and 53 seconds after 3 o’clock. My body and mind felt a kind of lightness, pleasure, and fulfilment that I had never experienced before.

I most sincerely prostrate to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III,

I most sincerely prostrate to the greatly loving, greatly compassionate, and calamity-relieving Namo Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva,

For Their empowerment that bestowed corresponding benefits to all attendees of the dharma assembly. I am also grateful to Dharma Master Ruo Hui for benefiting the messes with a compassionate heart.
