A True Story: 100,000 Prostrations by a One-Armed Person who Learns and Practices the True Dharma of the Tathagata from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.

TrueStory- 100000 Prostration

A True Story: 100,000 Prostrations by a One-Armed Person who Learns and Practices the True Dharma of the Tathagata from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.

I was a factory worker in the past. In 1993, a co-worker had to go home to help plant his family’s wheat crop. His leave request was not approved by the shift leader. So, I went to cover him.

When looking at his work in the past, I thought I should be able to do it. In reality, it was not that simple. I was not skillful in operating the machine. The machine pulled my right hand in. When I dragged the arm out, I had no flesh in my hand and arm, only a long, bare bone left.

The doctor at the hospital took a look and told me that I must have amputation. The upper arm bone was fractured; however, he could reconnect it back.

When I slowly woke up from the surgery, I saw that my entire right arm…, my right arm was like, so short , only 5, 6 cm long.

Actually, the doctor had told me very clearly before the surgery that the amputation would only be limited to my hand. This is just not fair at all. I was furious. How could he be a doctor? What medical ethics did he have?

I cried my heart out at that time. I got very upset. I did not even want to go out of my room. I got a room from the company. I didn’t go out at all and felt that it would be embarrassed to go out and see people. Why do I get such bad luck?

一個獨臂者的十萬個大禮拜-1

I was depressed all day long and also could not get along with my wife. I would smash bowls or chopsticks whenever things didn’t go my way. That happened a lot. When I popped open a bottle of white wine, I would have a big, long gulp. In one morning, I could almost finish a bottle with only a few drops left. I buried myself in the alcohol at home. Once I am drunk, I lose my temper. I almost had a mental breakdown and lost confidence in my life.

It started out from doing a favor, to help out my co-worker. How did it make me to become a handicapped person? How could such a thing happen to me? Even the hospital mistreated me in that way. The whole society did not treat me fairly. I also didn’t see justice from the Heavenly God…….

One day, my daughter told me: “Father, I will take you to a Buddhist center. Go learn Buddhism. Buddhism will be good for you, and for our family. Chant “Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!”

一個獨臂者的十萬個大禮拜-2

“What did you tell me to chant?”I said, “I have only heard about Amitabha Buddha. Why didn’t I know about H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III?”

Starting from that day,I would head to the Buddhist center and then listened to the Dharma discourses every day.I started to learn Buddhism at the Buddhist center. I listened to the discourse on the Law of Cause and Effect. I listened to many pre-recorded dharma discourses, such as The Dharma to Cut Off the Twenty Worldly Emotions, etc.

Eventually I understood that everything is a result of the Law of Cause and Effect.

I listened to The Dharma to Cut Off the Twenty Worldly Emotions a few more times. I also listened more times to the discourse on the Law of Cause and Effect.

I gradually realized that the loss of my right arm was not without a cause. Whether in my past lifetimes or in this lifetime, I have harmed so many living beings. This bit of suffering is what I deserve. When I took the lives of other living beings in the past, I caused them sufferings.

Through the learning, I slowly understood the truth about the Law of Cause and Effect. The hatred in my mind also gradually vanished.

Every day I did prostrations and listened to the dharma at the Buddhist center. I then made a resolve.

一個獨臂者的十萬個大禮拜-3

Since I have learned and understood the truth of the Law of Cause and Effect, I will now repent to all the living beings I have killed or harmed. I will repent to them. With the utmost respect, in front of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, I will repent with my most pious heart.

I will do 100,000 prostrations for repentance. In less than four months, I completed 100,000 prostrations. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III told us, only cultivation can transform the Law of Cause and Effect.

一個獨臂者的十萬個大禮拜

The retribution I am receiving right now is caused by what I have done in many lifetimes and eons ago. From now on, I will follow and learn from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and cultivate myself.

As long as I plant good causes. I will definitely get good fruition in the future. I am determined to follow and learn from the Buddha and cultivate myself until I attain accomplishment.

Royal Academy Of Arts- Has-The First Fellow Awarded in Past More Than Two Hundred Years

The Explanation of the Buddha’s Title – “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

On April 3, 2008, a solemn and dignified first-publishing ceremony of a fact-recording book entitled H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, which published jointly by the World Buddhism Publishing LLC and the World Dharma Voice, Inc., was held at the Library of the Congress of the United States. The book was also formally accepted into the collection of the Library of the Congress of the United States. Only since that time, did people in the world know that Master Wan Ko Yee, who had been broadly respected by the great masses and who had also been known as Great Dharma King Yangwo Yeshe Norbu, had been recognized by the world’s leaders, regent dharma kings, and great rinpoches of Buddhism through official documents as the third incarnation of Dorje Chang Buddha, who is the primordial Sambhogakaya Buddha of the universe. The Buddha’s name is H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Since then, people began to address His Holiness the Buddha by “Namo[1] Dorje Chang Buddha III.” This is similar to the situation that Sakyamuni Buddha’s name was Prince Siddhartha Gotama before attaining Buddhahood. However, after Sakyamuni Buddha had attained Buddhahood, His title changed to “Namo Sakyamuni Buddha.” That is why we now address His Holiness the Buddha as “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.”

In particular, on December 12, 2012, the Senate Resolution No. 614 of the United States Congress officially used “His Holiness” in the name addressing Dorje Chang Buddha III (That is to say, “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.”) Since then, the title and status of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has been definitive by nature. And, as a matter of fact, “Dorje Chang Buddha III” is a name used legally in governmental and official legislative documents. Therefore, the previously used respected name and titles such as “Wan Ko Yee,” Great Master, and Great Dharma King no longer exist.

The Explanation of the Buddha’s Title – “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

 

On April 3, 2008, a solemn and dignified first-publishing ceremony of a fact-recording book entitled H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, which published jointly by the World Buddhism Publishing LLC and the World Dharma Voice, Inc., was held at the Library of the Congress of the United States. The book was also formally accepted into the collection of the Library of the Congress of the United States. Only since that time, did people in the world know that Master Wan Ko Yee, who had been broadly respected by the great masses and who had also been known as Great Dharma King Yangwo Yeshe Norbu, had been recognized by the world’s leaders, regent dharma kings, and great rinpoches of Buddhism through official documents as the third incarnation of Dorje Chang Buddha, who is the primordial Sambhogakaya Buddha of the universe. The Buddha’s name is H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Since then, people began to address His Holiness the Buddha by “Namo[1] Dorje Chang Buddha III.” This is similar to the situation that Sakyamuni Buddha’s name was Prince Siddhartha Gotama before attaining Buddhahood. However, after Sakyamuni Buddha had attained Buddhahood, His title changed to “Namo Sakyamuni Buddha.” That is why we now address His Holiness the Buddha as “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.”

In particular, on December 12, 2012, the Senate Resolution No. 614 of the United States Congress officially used “His Holiness” in the name addressing Dorje Chang Buddha III (That is to say, “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.”) Since then, the title and status of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has been definitive by nature. And, as a matter of fact, “Dorje Chang Buddha III” is a name used legally in governmental and official legislative documents. Therefore, the previously used respected name and titles such as “Wan Ko Yee,” Great Master, and Great Dharma King no longer exist.

 

 

However, the news below was published before the Buddha’s title of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was publicly announced. At that time, people did not know about the true status of His Holiness the Buddha. Therefore, to respect the true history, we still kept the names used before the title of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was legitimately determined in republishing this news. However, all must clearly know that the only legitimate name of His Holiness the Buddha is H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and all other names used before the legitimate determination no longer exist.

 

 

Being slandered for fraud in the past, now the truth of this falsely created case has been brought to the public, providing more evidence on the fact that all H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III does is to benefit living beings.

BUDDHA-DHARMA FOR ATTAINING ACCOMPLISHMENT AT THE FASTEST SPEED MUST BE OBTAINED USING ONE’S PURE AND UPRIGHT MIND AND CONDUCT

buddha-dharma-for-attaining-accomplishment-at-the-fastest-speed-must-be-obtained-using-one_s-pure-and-upright-mind-and-conduct

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!

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

The emotions I felt were powerful and brought tears to my eyes…”

 

Sunday, May 6, 2018

 

I, Sangjie Tieba Rinpoche, attest to the following sequence of events that occurred on April 15th, 2018 during the Guan Yin Bodhisattva Great Compassion Empowerment Dharma Assembly, held in Potomac, Maryland.

 

After the Guan Yin Bodhisattva Great Compassion Empowerment Dharma Assembly began, the participants in attendance were told to raise their arms in front of them, allow their hands to hang down and to close their eyes. We were also told not to open our eyes until instructed. Shortly after closing my eyes, my mind began to reflect on the suffering of the world. The emotions I felt were powerful and brought tears to my eyes. I am not sure how much time passed, but all of a sudden I was struck rather hard in the area of my heart, pushing me backward. While I was startled and confused, a female voice said to me “Do not be afraid” in a firm, but compassionate tone, which immediately calmed me down.

 

This woman continually struck the same area of my chest only more gently. After each strike, she told me to “Breath,” which I did. After 8 to 10 strikes in this manner, she stopped. Then as suddenly as she had appeared, she was gone. Feeling drained, I lowered my arms to my side. My mind returned to reflecting on the suffering of the world. Only now I was calmer and more engaged in the emotions that accompanied this reflection.

 

After the ceremony concluded, we were asked to share our experiences. A sister spoke and described a remarkable journey she experienced. She was guided by Guan Yin Bodhisattva. Ultimately, she was told to return to the Dharma Assembly, for she had work to do. It was her, through the guidance of Guan Yin Bodhisattva, who struck me and moved throughout the assembly engaging others as she was told to do.

 

Since the Guan Yin Bodhisattva Great Compassion Empowerment Dharma Assembly, I continually hear the voice instructing me “Do not be afraid” and to “Breath.” I lack the accomplishment to understand the meaning of this message and why I was chosen to hear it. However, the law of cause and effect never errors. If what I have just reported is false, I will descend into the Vajra Hell.

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

——Note Written Afterwards to Describe the Most Magnificent Scene at the Site

 (Report No. 8)

 

 

In September this year, I had the good fortune to attend the Dharma Assembly of Empowerment by Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva’s Great Compassion and received great empowerment from Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva. The effect was very magnificent. I take this opportunity to share my experience and feelings at that time with my fellow cultivators.

 

 

At the beginning of the dharma assembly, I was a little nervous. I closed my eyes and raised my arms to the horizontal position. I bent my legs slightly. A short while later, I heard the hearty laughter from some people. I wanted very much to know who received the empowerment from Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva so quickly, but I dared not open my eyes.

 

 

I firmly remembered what the presiding master told us and did my best to keep my mind calm and focused. Suddenly, a strong heat flow went from my right shoulder to the left shoulder. My hands then began waving spontaneously to the left and right. I felt heat emitting from my body. Next, I opened my voice to cry and shout. My hand-waving and crying lasted for a while and then gradually came to a stop. At this time, my body felt hot and sweated. I felt rather tired and so sat down on the ground.

 

 

After resting for a while, I stood up with my eyes still closed. I raised my arms again. At this time, I heard someone singing. The voice of singing came closer from far away and in a short while was behind me. Ah, I heard clearly that the song was the Six Character Great Bright Mantra. The ear-pleasing singing changed from the solo singing at the beginning to a chorus with many people. Eventually I heard that the wonderfully pleasant singing also came from the space. I felt that the Bodhisattva was empowering us from the space. I naturally joined the singing. Tears unintentionally flew down from my eyes. That was my gratitude to the kindness received! Meanwhile, my legs started to tremble and my hands were waving again. However, the movement this time was somewhat different from what I did earlier and was like dancing along with the pleasant singing. At that time, my mood was joyful and delighted and my body was very relaxed. In this manner, my hands were waving continuously until the dharma master announced, “Stop.”

 

 

After the dharma assembly concluded perfectly, the relaxed and pleasant feeling remained in my mind. I am extremely grateful!

 

 

After the dharma assembly, I have two beneficial effects from the empowerment. The first is that my shoulder pain has completely disappeared! Shoulder pain was an old illness that plagued me for many years. The second is that I am now much more energetic than before! In the past, when I was practicing the dharma or reading respectfully Buddhist books, I would feel sleepy after half an hour. I am now much more energetic and will not dose off even after two hours.

 

 

I am extremely grateful to the good fortune of attending such a magnificent dharma assembly this time!

 

 

I prostrate to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!

I prostrate to the greatly loving and greatly compassionate Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva!

Homage to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III – Giving Rise to Correct Thoughts and Do Buddhist Work Seriously

Homage to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Giving Rise to Correct Thoughts and Do Buddhist Work Seriously

 I am not sure whether you have had such experience in your daily life or not, “Well, this is clearly what he should do, but he does not do it and always let me clean up the mess. I am not going to do that either. This is his thing from the beginning.” Or, when people are working together, one may be “in hiding” and cannot be found. One may also use reasons such as having health issues as excuses.
 

 

        Also, when doing Buddhist work, one may only do the things that one regards as having great merit. When releasing living beings from captivity, those who have such mentality want to select the pregnant fish or shrimps to release or pick big ones or scoop more. They think that only doing so will have great merit. When doing things, they measure what they do using the magnitude of merit as the standard.
 

 

        Here, I would like to share a real experience of mine to you all. Because a fellow-sister had to go to another dharma center, her original work assignment was given to me to do for a while. Since her original work assignment was cleaning and sweeping the dining room when I first took it over, I complained while moping the floor, “This floor is so dirty. Hey, it is so disgusting!” Having such thought made things miserable. I became more and more afflicted and upset as I was sweeping. I did not even move the chairs in the right manner. Rather, I just moped across carelessly, making loud noises as the chairs were hit.
 

 

        About a year ago, I began to feel a small swollen lump near my armpit. At first, there was not much feeling from it, with only a little bulging pain near the monthly period. However, six months later, the bulging pain could be felt at normal times and my entire left arm felt the swelling. Therefore, additional afflictions were generated when sweeping the floor.
 

 

        Later, I spoke to a fellow-sister about this small swollen lump near my armpit. She said, “Why don’t you practice the Buddha Speaks of the Sutra on Healing Hemorrhoids and Illnesses?” Hearing what she said, I felt like a “bang” in my mind. “Right, why didn’t I think about that?”
 

 

      Alas, my karmic forces were so severe, and I was completely obstructed. Since then, I continuously practiced according to the Buddha Speaks of the Sutra on Healing Hemorrhoids and Illnesses and at the same time gave rise to correct thoughts. I no longer held the attitude of regarding Buddhist work as having nothing to do with me. Think about that, how great good fortune it is to work at the temple. Isn’t doing the things for myself? Isn’t doing this to remove my negative karma? Hey, I didn’t even have such opportunity before. I am really a big fool. No wonder I am plagued by karmic hindrances!
 

 

        From then on, I was always doing things happily regardless of what I was doing. If something could be done right away, I would just go ahead and do it, without thinking about whether it belonged to me or someone else. Suddenly, one day I found that the swollen lump near my armpit no longer painful. My arm had no swollen feeling either. Wow, that was amazing! I gratefully thank the empowerment from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas!
 

 

        This incident also strengthens my determination of giving rise to correct thoughts and doing Buddhist work seriously!

 

Amitabha!
