Wangzha Shangzun Truly Transcends the Ordinary

In the afternoon of March 6, 2019, peals of thunder could be heard rumbling above the sky of the Holy Miracles Temple, sounding like giant earthquakes and landslides. The rain came pouring down rapidly. The Grand Hall of Shakyamuni Buddha at the Holy Miracles Temple was crowded with nearly a thousand Buddhists from all over the world. Holding khatas with both hands, they kneeled to respectfully and sincerely welcome the greatly accomplished holy guru, Wangzha Shangzun.

 

Wangzha Shangzun is a great holy guru who has attained the level of Gold Button Grade 3. In this lifetime, He has followed H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III to learn Buddha-Dharma and has attained tremendous accomplishment in holy realization. The Shangzun is considered the one and only Venerable King of Extraordinary Strength within the field of Buddhism throughout the entire world. He once conducted the Vajra Fa-man Holy Selection Grand Dharma Assembly during which He performed the Determination by Holy Selection in accordance with the Dharma and arrived at the determination that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the true incarnation of the primordial Buddha.

 

In 2016, Wangzha Shangzun personally presided over the holy exam held by the World Buddhism Association Headquarters for Dharma kings, rinpoches, Dharma masters, masters, and acaryas around the world. In establishing the Samsara Eight-Wind Array and Vajra Array, and with his holy realization, the Shangzun determined through Holy Selection the grade levels—the levels of accomplishment—of nearly 10,000 Buddhists. That astounded the world!

 

The Shangzun is, however, indifferent towards fame and fortune. In the past few years, He devoted himself to Dharma affairs of saving living beings. He rarely sees regular Buddhists except for seeing a very small number of high-level Buddhists. With the near-completion of the Dipankara Buddha Hall in the Holy Miracles Temple, and upon repeated requests by the monastics of the temple, the Shangzun has finally agreed to go to the Dipankara Buddha Hall periodically to chant sutras and mantras, to perform Dharmas, to pray for and bless faithful Buddhists who light lamps to beseech blessings. It was only under this karmic condition that the Shangzun agreed to publicly meet with Buddhists regardless of their level of accomplishment.

 

In the evening of March 6, Wangzha Shangzun arrived at Holy Miracles Temple. He walked with firm and stately pace as if a Vajra deity was descending to a mandala. A huge Vajra scepter which weighs about 1,000 jin (approximately 1,100 pounds) was placed in front of the entrance of the Grand Hall of Shakyamuni Buddha. According to the ancient Dharma rules in the time of Guru Padmasambhava, any great holy guru who attained the level of Gold Button Grade 3 must lift the temple-barrier Vajra scepter—the weight of which corresponds with the body weight and age of the holy guru—before they can stride over the scepter and enter the Buddha Hall. This Dharma rule is meant to verify if the Shangzun’s physical condition is healthy and if He has attained the standard of having transcended the ordinary. The rule requires Wangzha Shangzun to lift a 1,000 jin temple-barrier Vajra scepter before He can enter the Grand Hall to pay homage to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.

 

Wangzha Shangzun has a Vajra-like physique that is tall and grand, and an appearance that is very dignified. He went up to the temple-barrier Vajra scepter, bent over, and lifted up the 1,000 jin Vajra scepter effortlessly, manifesting the mighty character of a Vajra deity. When He put the Vajra scepter back on the floor, the ground and the hall instantly shook and the congregation was astounded. Subsequently, Shangzun gracefully strode over the Vajra scepter and entered the Grand Hall. He prostrated to His Holiness Dorje Chang Buddha IIIas he spoke these words with utter sincerity, “I, disciple Wangzha, prostrate myself before the great Namo Dorje Chang Buddha III!” With his back bent and head bowed, He slowly came in front of His Holiness the Buddha. His Holiness the Buddha placed His hand on the Shangzun’s head. Afterwards, the Shangzun retreated to the side and ascended to His seat. He addressed the congregation, “Buddhist disciples, I’m very happy to see you here today. I’m happy because you have the karmic affinity in this lifetime to meet Namo Dorje Chang Buddha III. Thus, you’ll be able to learn the authentic Buddha Dharma, the unaltered and pristine Dharma. Because of this, you will be able to attain accomplishment within this lifetime. So of course, I’m very happy.”

 

Wangzha Shangzun blessed everyone in the congregation by placing His hand on each of their heads before He left. This went on until very late at night.

 

After the Shangzun left, Buddhist disciples were unable to hold back their curiosity about the 1,000 jin Vajra scepter. Many came forward to try lifting it. A body-builder and weight-lifter also gave it a try. Certainly, it is obvious that no matter how much strength they exerted, they were unable to lift it, and everyone shook their head when they resume standing. They were not even able to move it, not to say lift it. Two people tried to jointly lift one end, but the Vajra scepter did not move a bit. No wonder Shangzun is called the Venerable King of Extraordinary Strength.

 

Kankun Rinpoche, the attendant of Wangzha Shangzun, said, “On this planet earth, among all Dharma kings and rinpoches, you cannot find anyone who can lift the temple-barrier Vajra scepter. There are no temple-barrier Vajra scepters in front of their Grand Buddha Halls because this is a sharp weapon that exposes the nature of ordinary people. If they are not truly great holy people, do they dare to place a temple-barrier Vajra scepter in front of their Buddha Halls? Why? The reason is simple. True Buddha-Dharma has already become extinct. What people have learned are fragmented empty theories. No matter how reputable some of the Dharma kings or rinpoches are, or how high their status may be, their physical bodies are essentially sickly and weak. How can they have any holy qualities in their bodies? How could they have a Vajra body developed from true Buddha-Dharma? The only place to witness true realization power is right here where Namo Dorje Chang Buddha III is. Only Wangzha Shangzun, a close disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, has truly attained realization powers manifested from the authentic Dharma of the Tathagatas. I dare say some of those Tibetan Dharma Kings who brag about their lineages and talk empty theories are very pitiful. They do all sorts of useless things to fool amateurs. Even though they pose to look energetic when ascending to the Dharma dais, their bodies are weak and sickly. They are tormented by their illnesses yet they continue to make up empty lies, and even fabricate false Buddha-Dharma. Since cultivators do not look for facts and only listen to empty talk, it is not surprising that they are being swindled! This is precisely the Dharma-ending age that Shakyamuni Buddha talked about where the demons prevail, Buddha-Dharma declines, and practitioners are often harmed. To cover up the fact that they are by nature ordinary people, some Dharma kings or rinpoches might say, ‘Our lineage places no emphasis on that!’ I am saying you can only deceive idiots. Whether or not you place emphasis on that, if you claim that you are a holy person and you have transcended the ordinary to become holy, why doesn’t your body have the great strength of a holy person? The undeniable facts are that you have no physical strength and your physical body is weak and sickly. Isn’t that true? If you disagree, show everyone that you can pick up the temple-barrier Vajra scepter! Just as with the Five Vidyas. Many people pretend to have Five Vidyas, but ultimately, where are their Five Vidyas? Can they show their Vidyas one by one? What level of accomplishment do they have in their Vidyas? They have nothing! Shakyamuni Buddha stipulated that a Bodhisattva must have Five Vidyas, yet you are deficient in the Five Vidyas, and without any level of accomplishment. You are clearly not a great Bodhisattva. By claiming to be a Bodhisattva, you are going against the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha. You are simply an ordinary person and not a Bodhisattva at all!”

I Finally Witnessed the Holy Fire-Offering Great Dharma That is Talked about in Buddhist History

Buddhist History

After 80 years, the authentic “Holy Fire-Offering Homa Dharma” was performed again to eliminates disasters, staves off hardships, removes hindrances and increases good fortune. The Vajra Maternal Buddha arrived in the sky and personally lit the fire.

(Reported by Nangqiong Nuosang) On September 19, 2018, one of tremendously holy virtue conducted a “Holy Fire-Offering Dharma Assembly” that was officially held at the Holy Miracles Temple in the United States. The dharma assembly took place at the Grand Hall of the Buddhas and the courtyard right outside the hall. It was a complete success.

The attendees of this dharma assembly, which is extremely rare and almost impossible to come by, attended under two types of karmic conditions. Under the first type of condition, there were direct attendees who are persons of holy virtue, eminent monastics, abbots of Buddhist temples, and leaders of Buddhist organizations. Their attendance was determined by a Yu-Zun, Wang Zha Shang-Zun, Mozhi Jiao-Zun, or Dharma King Gar Tongstan. Under the second type of condition, there were attendees whose attendance accorded with karmic conditions. They encountered the occasion by happenstance and hence attended the dharma assembly.

Fire-offering dharma is a great dharma in Buddhism. In Tibetan Buddhism, fire-offering is especially of significant importance. In places such as Tibet and India, even common people are almost all highly familiar with this well-known great dharma that eliminates disasters, staves off hardships, removes hindrances and increases good fortune. This Buddha-dharma is also known as the “Holy Fire-Offering Homa Dharma.” However, the authentic “Holy Fire-Offering Homa Dharma” is hardly performed even once in a hundred years. What people often attended were just regular fire-offering dharma assemblies. The empowerment produced from “Holy Fire-Offering Homa Dharma” and that produced from a regular fire-offering is as different as heaven and earth, as different as one step versus ten thousand miles.

When Wang Zha Shang-Zun and two great holy virtuous ones spoke about what they personally experienced, they said that in the last 100 years, the famous Master Pabongka, also known as the Great Sun Tathagata, and Kangsa Rinpoche, also known as the Great Moon Tathagata, had both performed this dharma. A great holy virtuous person of Gold Button Grade 2 said, “I have learned this dharma but have not succeeded in the practice of it. It appears that I am still lacking in dharma powers and abilities and that I still have to make efforts. In the last several decades, I have yet to see any great holy virtuous person, great dharma king, or great dharma master successfully practice a holy fire-offering dharma. If a holy fire-offering is not successfully performed, it can only have the effect of a regular fire-offering.”

What are the differences between a successful practice and an unsuccessful practice? First, people claim that the regular fire-offering dharma from the Tibetan tradition and the fire-offerings from the lineage of Eastern esoteric Buddhism (woodpile grand dharma assemblies) are so extraordinary. After looking into it, it turns out that the fire in these dharmas are lit by people. How could such empowerment be remotely compared to the empowerment from a fire ignited by Buddhas or holy deities? A holy fire-offering is different. It requires beseeching nine Tathagatas, Vajra Maternal Buddha, Prajna Maternal Buddha, and the holy assembly of dharma-protectors to personally arrive at the fire-mandala. It is an authentic holy fire-offering only when the Vajra Maternal Buddha arrives in the sky and personally lights the fire.

During this holy fire-offering dharma assembly, good and faithful Buddhists sat on both sides of the Grand Hall of the Buddhas. With watchful eyes, they personally witnessed in close proximity the whole process of that dharma assembly. The fire-offering mandala involves the use of numerous different dharma instruments. A cauldron was newly made for the fire-offering mandala just in time for the dharma assembly. It was a clean cauldron made of pure copper, with no electrical or ignition device inside. A flat table and all the dharma instruments, including the fire cauldron, were wiped thoroughly clean from top to bottom by more than ten volunteers on site. The fire cauldron was placed on that flat table. Pieces of sandalwood were put inside the cauldron. The table was then moved closer to the door of the Grand Hall.

The one of tremendously holy virtue who conducted the dharma performed the rituals in accordance with the dharma. The dharma seat of the one of tremendously holy virtue was about fifty meters away from the fire cauldron. Bodi Wentu Ru-Zun, a person of holy virtue at the level of Gold Button Grade 1, served as the “Fire-Ignition Guardian.” He soaked the fire stick with butter oil, then walked toward the fire cauldron. With each step he took, he chanted one mantra character. He originally intended to light the fire, but when he was about six meters away from the cauldron, he suddenly changed his mind. He stood still, looked up and said loudly, “This Holy Fire-Mandala Homa Dharma is being performed by the Namo One of Tremendously Holy Virtue. Would Vajra Maternal Buddha please ignite the fire. If Vajra Maternal Buddha does not ignite the fire, I, disciple Bodi Wentu, will ignite the fire.” He then made a deep bow. Standing at a place a distance away, the one of tremendously holy virtue then said loudly, “Would VajraMaternal Buddha please ignite the homa fire to eliminate hindrances for living beings and increase their good fortune!” As soon as those words were spoken, Vajra Maternal Buddha suddenly appeared in the sky. I saw Vajra Maternal Buddha flick her finger sending forth a flash of light. The fire inside the cauldron then ignited. Initially, there was no trace of fire inside the cauldron; then, suddenly, the cauldron was ablaze with raging fire. Bodi Wentu was so taken aback that he quickly moved away. He then immediately turned around and began to prostrate. When everyone there saw from close proximity the sudden ignition of the flames, they instantly knelt on the ground and kowtowed. Everyone was extremely excited. Subsequently, in accordance with the rituals, the attendees began to pray and burn homa-offerings.

A Buddhist disciple took the initiative to place the vajra demon-subduing bowl, which is used in a holy fire-offering, upside down on a small flat table. According to the meaning of the dharma, demons and evil karma from everyone attending the fire-offering are collected and subdued inside the bowl. The demons tried in vain to escape from the bowl, using all of their strength to shake the bowl. At this critical moment, a sound of “Hong” was heard! Vajra Maternal Buddha launched a flash of lightning, turning allthe malicious demons and black karma inside the bowl into pulverized powder. The souls of the demons were brought to a Buddha-land by Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to be edified under rigorous discipline.

All these times, the one of tremendously holy virtue remained at a distance and did not come close to any dharma instruments or dharma tables. Subsequently, the great dharma of “Secretly Sending a Petition to a Bodhisattva” was performed. All attendees on site heard the inverted vajra demon-subduing bowl that they were viewing, with itsopening completely sealed by the flat surface of the table, emit a loud sound of “Hong.” A flame resembling lightning swirled around the edge of bowl, then vanished. Thereafter, attendees of the assembly turned the bowl over and saw that there was nothing either under or inside the bowl. The “petition” secretly sent to the Bodhisattva had already been taken away. Under the watchful eyes of the assembly, the petition simply disappeared without a trace. The dharma of “Secretly Sending a Petition to a Bodhisattva” was successfully performed! Meanwhile, the burned demonic corpses emitted an extremely foul odor, much worse than any kind of stinky odor in the world. All those who sniffed the bowl found the foul odor so unbearable that their facial expressions looked distorted. The true state of the holy fire-offering dharma had been performed to perfection.

According to my understanding, the holy fire-offering dharma had not been successfully performed in more than eighty years. Everyone talked about it in theory, but Buddhas and Bodhisattvas did not appear. Regardless of who performed the dharma, there was not one holy homa dharma assembly that manifested the true state of the dharma like this one. That is to say, within the territory of Tibet, India, and other countries in the world, such a magnificent fire-offering dharma assembly did happen more than eighty years ago. Now is the second time it has happened, enabling us to personally witness and experience right then and there the supreme magnificence of the true dharma of the Tathagatas.

During this holy fire-offering dharma assembly, there were manifestations of unprecedented holy states and boundless mighty power. What is more magnificent is that the smoke from the fire-offering mandala rose up inside the grand hall, densely spreading over all of the top of the hall, yet the smoke detectors on the ceiling did not sound any alarm. That was so miraculous. Normally, when one is halfway through smoking a cigarette inside that grand hall, the alarm would sound, and water would sprinkle down. The power demonstrated by the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in that holy dharma assembly was so marvelous and subtle.

Such were the extremely wonderful holy miracles from the holy homa fire-offering. The good and faithful Buddhists attendees were very moved. Even the well-known Mozhi Jiao-Zun lost his calm. He was so excited that his facial expression looked twisted. Everyone did their utmost to present offerings to the one of tremendously holy virtue, but the one of tremendously holy virtue did not accept even one cent, and simply told everyone to keep their offerings.

In this world, the Holy Miracles Temple has now established an authentic inner-tantric mandala because everyone on site personally witnessed the “Secretly Sending a Petition to a Bodhisattva.” However, the one of tremendously holy virtue said, “It would be best if you yourselves found one of greatly holy virtue to perform ‘Lifting theThree Vajra Phurbas.’ In this way, a real object can be placed there for worship to demonstrate that an inner-tantric mandala has truly been established.”

I personally attended that assembly in which the great dharma of the real holy fire-offering was performed. It made me deeply feel that what a great holy virtuous person said is correct: “A regular fire-offering in comparison to a holy fire-offering is like one hair in comparison to the hairs of nine oxen. It is just like child’s play.” No wonder a Jiao-Zun said, “The merit from a holy fire-offering in which Vajra Maternal Buddha appears in the sky to ignite the fire is several thousand times greater than the merit from a regular fire-offering in which a person ignites the fire.”

The fire cauldron, offering tables, and related dharma instruments used in that holy fire-offering will all be placed for worship at the Holy Miracles Temple.

At this point, I would also like to mention a very important matter. On September 19th after the holy fire-offering dharma assembly was successfully completed, the Namo one of tremendously holy virtue announced right then and there in the Grand Hall of the Buddhas: “Today’s great dharma assembly has already been conducted. Dharma King Gar Tongstan has been waiting for this dharma assembly. This is the last dharma assembly from which he receives empowerment.”

In an announcement issued by the World Buddhism Association Headquarters just a few days ago, Dharma King Gar Tongstan said that once a last dharma assembly is conducted, he would pass away as soon as possible in a state of liberation. Two dharma masters urged him to stay for the sake of propagating dharma to save living beings. The Dharma King said, “With the Buddha Master living in the world, my level of realization would not be of much use! Life is a dream. Sooner or later, one has to leave. When causes and conditions come together, there is illusory existence. With the ending of those conditions, such existence breaks down. That’s it. I won’t stay!” He also said, “I have control over my birth and death. I can leave at whatever time I want to leave. My situation is different from that of Zhao Yusheng, a person of holy virtue, who relied on Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to receive him at a set time.”

Dharma King Gar Tongstan truly fulfilled his words regarding his control over his own birth and death. On September 20th, the day after the dharma assembly, he took a bath, put on his dharma robe, and laid out stationary before his dharma seat. He wrote a farewell letter to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III in which he stated that he will “pass away in a state of liberation before the ink dries.” Having stated that in writing, once he put down his brush, he indeed instantly passed away in a state of liberation. Only someone who has attained freedom from birth and death can have such a state of accomplishment!

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

Recording my real experience of attending the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions for celebrating the nirvana of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai

Recording my real experience of attending the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions for celebrating the nirvana of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai

A Great Miraculous Transformation Manifested by Holy Monk’s Flesh Body Created a New Chapter on Nirvana in the History of Buddhism

——Recording my real experience of attending the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions for celebrating the nirvana of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai

 

I am so fortunate in my current lifetime. The karmic affinity formed through many lifetimes and eons enabled me to attend the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions held after the nirvana of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai who was the world’s top-level holy monk. After the Elder Dharma Master’s nirvana, Buddhist disciples not only took shifts to guard in front of the Elder Dharma Master’s flesh body and chant the holy name of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva without interruption but also held three grand dharma assemblies every day until the perfect conclusion of the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions. I attended my shift of chanting and the three dharma assemblies every day without missing even one session. To benefit living beings, I now tell people in the world about the unprecedented and world-astounding holy feats manifested by Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai that I witnessed in person.

I am a rinpoche and I know that I must follow the Buddha’s teaching and cannot speak falsely to deceive living beings. Before all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in the ten directions, I give my truthful accounts in the following:

On December 30, 2016, when concluding the examination in the holy realm held by the World Buddhism Association Headquarters (WBAH), the great holy virtuous one leading the dharma Wang Zha Shang Zun made this prediction publicly, “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.”

What I could never imagine is that the tremendously great accomplishment of this top-level foremost holy monk in the world is so astonishing to the heaven and human realms and ground-shaking to this earthly world!

To celebrate the H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Day, we held a ceremony to release living beings in captivity and then respectively listened to a recorded magnificent dharma discourse on January 15, 2017. Right after the celebration had ended, we received a notice and immediately went to where Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai was stationed. We saw that the Elder Dharma Master entered nirvana in a sitting state of concentration. After chanting sutras, mantras, and the holy name of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, we respectfully viewed His holy appearance. The Elder Dharma Master’s holy face looked thin and aged, with sunken cheeks, a sparse beard, and wrinkles all over the face (Please see the Elder Dharma Master’s photo taken at 11 hours after entering nirvana that can be respectfully requested from WBAH.) Could it be that this holy monk of the current era has left the world in this way? No, this was just the beginning of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai’s manifestation of His tremendously great and world-unparalleled accomplishment!

Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai is a disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and the Chief Teacher of the Tripitaka of sutras, vinayas, and shastras (commentaries) at WBAH. The Elder Dharma Master lived a private life in profound cultivation and practice. His conduct demonstrated noble and pure great compassion and bodhicitta, had nothing to do with fame and gain, and was not tainted by worldly dusts. His virtue and realization were immeasurably high and profound. Many abbots of famous temples and eminent monks of the current time are His disciples. However, because revered Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai did not touch worldly dusts and lived a great hidden life in the world, it was difficult for people in the world to have the affinity to hear His holy name.

In the evening of the same day, Buddhist disciples of the seven types as well as the professionals working at the Universal Chung Wah Funeral Home respectfully escorted the holy body of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai to the funeral home. At night, several dharma brothers and I who are rinpoches guarded the holy body while chanting the holy name of “Namo Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva” throughout the night. At 6 o’clock in the morning of the next day, the Elder Dharma Master’s holy body was handed over to the funeral home to carry out the process required by law. After completing the legal procedures, WBAH made the arrangement to hold grand dharma assemblies in the morning, at noon and in the evening every day. Additionally, Buddhist disciples guarded in front of the Elder Dharma Master’s holy body at any time day and night. Each shift was staffed by quite a few disciples, who chanted the holy name of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva without a pause.

On the third day after the Elder Dharma Master’s entering nirvana, when I was in the shift of chanting, I was able to view closely and saw that the Elder Dharma Master looked pale.

On the fifth night, other dharma brothers and I on the same shift noticed that, although the Elder Dharma Master still looked thin, His facial complexion was no longer so pale. The two cheeks of the Elder Dharma Master revealed a somewhat ruddy air. That was quite different from the common phenomena seen after one’s death when the facial color turns worse and the muscles become loosen or dropsy.

The next day, we received a notice from the funeral home. Due to the limited number of ceremonial halls they have, they could no longer provide a space for us to continue the Buddhist ceremony there for an extended period. Therefore, they agreed that we could receive the Elder Dharma Master’s flesh body back to the temple to continue the unfinished Buddhist ceremony. Thus, On the ninth day after the Elder Dharma Master’s nirvana and after the funeral home had provided the legal documentation, we received the holy body of the revered Elder Monk Yin Hai back to the temple to rest for worshipping in the Kuan Yin Hall that had been consecrated earlier by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III in person. Also, a transparent encasement was placed on top of the open coffin, to prevent the stinky and filthy air dispersed by ordinary persons from contaminating the holy body.

During the dharma assembly held on that night, many dharma brothers and sisters and I smelled special fragrant scent. Some saw that light was emitted in the hall. That was very auspicious and magnificent, as if being in a holy state of manifested land! There was also something that I must mention. On that night when I was viewing the holy body respectfully, I unintentionally found that revered Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai’s two hands appeared like a sculpture of white jade, dispersing the sense of texture and lust that only jade stones possess! I thought, how could the hands of a person have the sense of texture of stone? At that time, I really could not understand the cause of such peculiar and rare phenomena. I was only dawned afterwards that it was because the flesh body of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai was undergoing a total transformation inside and out.

On the eleventh night after the Elder Dharma Master‘s nirvana, before the dharma assembly started, chairperson of the International Buddhism Sangha Association (IBSA) Dharma Master Long Hui and the abbot of the True Buddha-Dharma Center and the Pagoda Temple Venerable Xiangge Qiongwa together announced an astonishingly great news. Earlier, with the permission from His Holiness the Buddha, Dharma Master Jue Hui, Dharma Master Long Hui, Venerable Xiangge Qiongwa, Venerable Long Zhou, Dharma Master Ruo Hui, and Dharma Master Miao Kong used their hands to touch and press the Holy Venerable One’s flesh body. They found that the Elder Dharma Master‘s flesh body was as firm and hard as a stone. Even the typically softest spots on the cheek was extremely firm and hard. The crowd immediately prostrated to pay respect. They were full of praises for witnessing the indisputable feat of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai’s accomplishment of an incorruptible Vajra body after entering nirvana.

More than 20 days after the Elder Dharma Master‘s entering nirvana, all monastics, rinpoches, laypersons, and I at the site formed a line to respectfully view the holy body one by one. When I got closer to view at an intimate distance, I could not even believe what I saw before my eyes. The holy monk in my eyesight truly stunned me greatly!

The Elder Dharma Master’s appearance underwent a vivid and complete miraculous transformation: the wrinkles that were all over the face at the time of entering nirvana disappeared; the originally thin bone frame and concave muscles became moisty, lustrous, and full and filled; the spiritual expression between eyebrows seemed to emit light; His nose ridge became straightly higher and wider; the originally sparse beard grew thick and dense; and even the fingers and fingernails had grown longer!

Before my eyes, the holy appearance of the Elder Dharma Master became very perfect and majestic and extremely magnificent. That was completely another person (See the two contrasting visages taken after Holy Monk Yin Hai had entered nirvana. The two photos can be respectfully requested from WBAH.) This fact validated the forecast by Wang Zha Shang Zun!

This holy feat that was never manifested by any holy one in history broke the record about nirvana in the history of Buddhism and is so inconceivable. But, it was right before my eyes! Still, this is the fact. After the Elder Dharma Master had entered nirvana, His flesh body was guarded by Buddhist disciples of the seven types day and night. They staffed in shifts to chant holy names and stayed at the scene all times. Altogether, there were more than 100 monastics, rinpoches, and laypersons who witnessed the process of this holy state.

Wang Zha Shang Zun who is at the level of Golden Button Grade 3 said that Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai is the foremost holy monk in the world and is respected by Him the most. The Elder Dharma Master’s holy realization and cultivated power are very great and strong. In His early years, the Shang Zun practiced the dharma together with Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai in a cave in a deep mountain. Wang Zha 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. This was a holy feat that occurred in the early years. In later years, He followed the Elder Dharma Master to become a disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and was taught by His Holiness the Buddha in person and was conferred the highest supreme initiations. That was why, after the revered Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai had entered nirvana, Wang Zha Shang Zun specifically wrote a Verse of Praise:

“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”

The karmic condition arising from Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai’s nirvana caused the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions. The merit generated from attending the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions is tremendously great and far exceeds the merit from attending ordinary dharma assemblies. Wang Zha Shang Zun announced that those who attended the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions perfectly have the qualification to be promoted on one’s grade and to receive the Initiation of Dharma Affinity with the Yidam. This is the reward of kindness, virtue, and good fortune that the Holy Venerable One’s nirvana brought to them.

Since the Elder Dharma Master is a top-level holy monk of last several thousand years, presenting the offerings of performing Buddha-dharma with respect to the holy days following the Elder Dharma Master’s nirvana including chanting sutras, chanting Buddhas’ names, practicing mantras, dharma practice, dedicating merit and so on will invoke tremendously great merit to return. Such merit is bestowed from the blessing given by the Elder Dharma Master who is a tremendously holy one on the spot!

I am boundlessly grateful to Elder Dharma Master’s blessing on the spot that bestowed living beings good fortune and beneficial gains in their resources for cultivation. The holy feat of miraculous great transformation manifested by Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai after entering nirvana created a new chapter in the history of Buddhism of this earthly world and demonstrated unprecedented accomplishment of holy state. Why is it called creating a new chapter in the history of Buddhism on nirvana?

First, the flesh body underwent a miraculous great transformation starting from the tenth day after Elder Dharma Master had entered nirvana. After that, His visage was magnificently majestic as if having become a completely different person.

Anyone who knows only a little about the medical science of human body would know that the blood will dry up after one’s death and the muscles will lose elasticity and become loose. Additionally, the skin will turn withered and lifeless, the internal organs will corrupt, and the body will emit stinky smell of spoiling. The appearance and state of a dead person can only become more and more miserable and more and more ugly. It has never been seen that a person looks more adorned and has better looking after death. Ten days after entering nirvana, Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai’s facial appearance showed a miraculous great transformation. A bony and aged face with concave cheeks and covered with wrinkles totally changed into magnificent appearance that was moisty and lustrous with full cheeks. The contrasting photos taken before and after the change look like two different persons!

Secondly, 11 days after entering nirvana, the flesh body of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai became as hard as a rock, demonstrating the accomplishment of an incorruptible Vajra body.

Patriarchs of past generations who accomplished an incorruptible flesh body generally had to go through a process of sealing the body inside an upside-down large vase for three years to rid of the fluid within the body. Then the vase is lifted. Only if the body did not spoil and the bone frame did not break, can the accomplishment of an incorruptible flesh body be determined. On the other hand, the situation of accomplishing an incorruptible Vajra body 11 days after entering nirvana is never heard about and absolutely unprecedented! Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai demonstrated His freedom from birth and death as He entered nirvana in an instant. Then, 11 days after, His entire body was as hard as a stone, manifesting the tremendously great accomplishment of realizing an incorruptible whole-body Vajra relic and creating a holy feat unprecedented in the entire history of Buddhism.

Thirdly, Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai‘s fingers, fingernails, and beard continued to grow after His nirvana. And there were three new black strains grown from His beard.

While the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions was in session, the professionals from the Universal Chung Wah Funeral Home came to our worshipping hall to perform service on Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai‘s body. They were greatly astounded upon seeing the Elder Monk’s holy body! They said that they had never seen or even heard such a thing. More than 20 days after entering nirvana, not only the wrinkles on the face disappeared, but also the bone frame and muscles became full and filled. The fingers and fingernails also grew longer. One of the professionals was very surprised and said after viewing Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai‘s holy appearance carefully and closely, “I know very clearly that the beard was sparse and completely white before. Now, not only the beard had grown longer, but also three black strains have grown from it!” They praised that the Elder Monk’s cultivation and practice were so great and amazing. They also repeatedly stated that this event was the most mysterious, the most miraculous, and the most inconceivable fact that they had experienced since the founding of the funeral home. The fact created a new record in their professional experience of many years and also proved that Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai created the first such holy manifestation in the history of Buddhism.

Wang Zha Shang Zun said that Holy Monk Yin Hai is 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 is a great holy one who came again from the World of Ultimate Bliss to fulfill His vow and has now returned to His upper-level lotus seat in the Pure Land. Though the Holy Monk has left, He established tremendously great merit and record for Buddhism with His flesh body after entering nirvana. This is a holy event that has never occurred before in history.

The miraculous great transformation manifested by the flesh body of Elder Dharma Master Yin Hai after He had entered nirvana proved that He is a top-level holy monk in the history of Buddhism. Furthermore, the source of the dharma that enabled the Elder Dharma Master to attain great accomplishment from His cultivation and practice is from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Through His state of accomplishment realized from learning the Buddha-dharma from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, the Elder Dharma Master proved the utmost supreme status of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and let people in the world know that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the source of the true dharma of the Tathagata leading to liberation and accomplishment in the current world.

In this dharma-ending era that is full of chaos and confusion, the Elder Dharma Master ignited the hope for living beings’ accomplishment and liberation in this earthly world. This will cause countless living beings to make their clear and pure vow to pursue liberation. Demonstrating the source of true Buddha-dharma and bestowing good fortune to living beings, the merit of the Elder Dharma Master is so great!

My above-stated personal experience is a true account of real events without anything untrue. Elder Monk Yin Hai’s accomplishment and holy feats that shine splendidly through history are indisputable facts. However, there are still vicious persons and swindlers of demonic nature who make slandering attacks that are completely baseless. They have the ulterior motive of cutting off living beings good roots and opportunities to acquire wisdom. What they do is truly despicable. Cultivators must not be deceived by them, otherwise they will lose their affinity with the supreme dharma that is difficult to encounter even in many eons.

I now take this oath before all Buddhas in the ten directions, “If I spoke falsely about Elder Monk Yin Hai’s holy feat of miraculous great transformation that took place in His flesh body after He had entered nirvana, I will encounter malicious retribution and will not become accomplished. If what I said is true, may living beings and I acquire perfect good fortune and wisdom and attain great accomplishment and great liberation!”

I now make this vow: I dedicate all my merit from perfectly attending the Holy Assembly of 100 Sessions to all living beings who see and hear about this article. May they give rise to clear and pure confidence and learn and practice the true dharma of the Tathagata from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, to increase their good fortune and wisdom, become liberated from transmigration, and forever leave all sufferings!

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

I am grateful to the greatly compassionate Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva with wonderful enlightenment!

I am grateful to Holy Venerable Master Yin Hai!

I am grateful to Wang Zha Shang Zun!

Wang Zha Shang Zun Held the Dharma Assembly of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue And Determined the Genuine Incarnation of the Buddha

Wang Zha Shang Zun-1

Wang Zha Shang Zun Held the Dharma Assembly of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue And Determined the Genuine Incarnation of the Buddha

(Reported by the Taiwan Times) On September 5, 2015, an unprecedented dharma assembly of “Determining the Status of a Buddha by the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue (Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue is a dharma in Tibetan Esoteric Buddhism for determining the result sought through selection)” was held in the United States of America with the attendance of several dozens of venerable ones, dharma kings and rinpoches, who are from Tibetan Esoteric Buddhism, and dharma masters. The dharma practice was led by Great Rinpoche Wang Zha from Tibet, who once practiced in solitary retreat for 46 years in Tibet and has the realization of Golden Button Grade 3 (having three Sun-Moon wheels) in Buddha-dharma. The decisions by the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue determined that Sakyamuni Buddha is a true Buddha, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is a true Buddha, and Master Hui Neng, the sixth patriarch of the Ch’an (Zen) School, was not a Buddha but was the incarnation of a great Bodhisattva.

At what level is a dharma assembly of determination by the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue? According to the explanation provided by the United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters (UIWBAH) who sponsored the two sessions of the dharma assembly to determine the status of a Buddha, the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue is one of the holy supreme great dharmas and can be used to determine the true or false status of any holy being. In this world, this dharma and the Dharma of Forecasting the Future (announcing events that will happen in the future ahead of time) are the co-champions among the dharmas of decision by selection. The dharma ranked next is the holy inner-tantric dharma of “Bai Fa Ming Men Hei Guan Ze Jue (a dharma specifically used to determine the correct or wrong result).” The next lower dharma is the dharma of dropping divine pieces to receive divine instruction, which is at the inner-tantric level. Then, there are lower, outer-tantric dharmas of lot-drawing from a golden vase, rotating a tsampa ball, watching a sacred lake to see the result, and others. This Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue and the Dharma of Forecasting the Future are the highest dharmas among dharmas of decision by selection to determine the status of either “another person” or “self.” This dharma can only be possessed and commanded by holy ones at the level of great Mahasattvas or higher. Therefore, no great dharma king or venerable one who is not an extremely great holy one can hold and practice this dharma. Even great dharma kings and great venerable ones at the level of Jiao Zun who have the ability of performing inner-tantric initiations do not have the qualification to hold and practice this dharma. Mo Zhi Jiao Zun said, “Although I have just entered the door of holding and performing inner-tantric initiations, I have not touched even the edge of the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue. Only a holy one who has the realization of performing holy inner-tantric initiations that are close to the level of state practice can perform the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue. Otherwise, one is merely dreaming and far away from doing it.”

Why was this dharma assembly held to determine the status of a Buddha by the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue? According to a writing describing the fact by the UIWBAH, the karmic condition rose from the fact that many Buddhists in the world wished to respectfully beseech the contrasting photos of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III showing His returning from an aged appearance to a youthful person three years ago. However, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did not agree to that. He thought that these were just ordinary photos and were meaningless for people to have. The discussion lasted three years to 2015. The UIWBAH finally got the agreement from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. His Holiness the Buddha donated the two photos of His to the UIWBAH free of charge with a requirement that the UIWBAH can only sell the photo at a low price to those who wish to get it and must not profit from selling the photo. At the end of October of 2015, the UIWBAH published the contrasting photos of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III showing His returning from an aged appearance to a youthful person to the world. This provided people with auspicious and magnificent feelings and abundant joy of Buddha-dharma.

Unfortunately, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III wrote a note for the photos and demanded it to be printed at the lower part of the photo sheet. The note mainly stated that He is an ordinary person like everyone else, He is not a holy person, He has no advantage over other people, He does not know the dharma of returning from an aged appearance to a youthful person, and what people saw was a temporary phenomenon due to a medicine given by an elder virtuous one. On the other hand, UIWBAH stated that many people witnessed the real fact that Wang Zha Shang Zun, who is an outstanding one among great dharma kings, publicly practiced a dharma of empowerment. After a short period of a little over 10 minutes, an elder person whose age was over 60 changed into an appearance of a person who was about 30 years old. Wang Zha Shang Zun used this demonstration to show the fact that the dharma of returning from an aged appearance to a youthful person does exist within the realm of Buddha-dharma. Wang Zha Shang Zun said, “My Buddha Master is the universe. I am only a small piece of stone. Even I can empower a cultivator to return from an aged appearance to a youthful person temporarily. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s realization is millions of times higher than mine. Can you believe that the Buddha Master is an ordinary person?”

Although Wang Zha Shang Zun made the above proof, the speech by His Holiness the Buddha saying that He is an ordinary person just like everyone else made many Buddhist disciples in the world, whose good roots and intelligence are not strong enough, hesitate and be at a loss. They are unsure, with pressure on their mind. All can tell that, in terms of science and causality, how can there exists any miraculous medicine that can completely change a person’s facial features in a short period of a little over 10 minutes? Furthermore, three years have already passed and there is still not even one winkle in H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s face. The skin and flesh on His face are clean and tender with a light ruddy complexion. His appearance is extremely beautiful, handsome, and majestic. Other than a Buddha, how can a Bodhisattva have such extremely beautiful magnificence and how can any medicine create such an effect? Additionally, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s accomplishments of perfect mastery in both exoteric Buddhism and esoteric Buddhism and at the acme of the Five Vidyas are unmatched and incomparable by any holy one throughout the history of Buddhism. Not even one can be found from looking through history, searching the internet, and exhaustive investigations! How could H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III not have advantage over others? Ordinary people do not bear any remote resemblance to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Then, how could H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III be an ordinary person? On the other hand, should we not listen to His Holiness the Buddha’s speech? Therefore, unintelligent and deluded people feel muddle-headed and do not know what is right.

Considering this situation of cultivators being pressured, the UIWBAH had discussions and decided to provide Buddhists a correct conclusion. For the sake of benefiting living beings, an action that may not respect His Holiness the Buddha has to be taken. Wang Zha Shang Zun, an extremely great holy one at the level of Golden Button Grade 3 or higher, took the lead to practice the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue to determine fundamentally whether the Buddha’s status is true or false. Many cultivators wish to know the situation of the dharma assembly that determined the Buddha’s status by the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue. The following is a report on that dharma assembly:

On September 5, 2015, the historic grand dharma assembly to determine the status of the Buddha using the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue began in a solemn and majestic scene. Wang Zha Shang Zun’s holy arrival was welcomed by Great Holy and Virtuous One Mo Zhi Jiao Zun, Chairman of the UIWBAH Dharma King Gar Tongstan, UIWBAH’s Secretary General Kai Chu Ru Zun, Chief Abbot of the International Buddhism Sangha Association Dharma Master Zhengda, Great Rinpoche Akou Lamo, and several dozens of eminent monks, rinpoches, and dharma masters who were to serve as observing witnesses. They held palms together to greet each other and were seated on the dharma rostrum.

To be fair, the decision by selection was first conducted to verify the status of Sakyamuni Buddha. The beseeching dharma document wrote, “We respectfully beseech a verification from the decision by selection. If Sakyamuni Buddha is truly a Buddha, a crown made by strands of hair will be put on the head. If not, there will be no crown.” First, a portrait of Sakyamuni Buddha was laid on an ordinary four-legged flat table of dark-brown color. Then, a pinch of sand from the Ganges River with the color of light camel wool was picked up and put on the portrait at a spot of hair at the top of the Buddha’s head. Wang Zha Shang Zun began to practice the dharma at a dharma rostrum which was about 13 feet away from the table. After the ritual of knocking the wood fish, ringing the bell, waving the Vajra, performing mudras, and chanting mantras, twelve documents written on yellow papers were burnt. All observing witnesses saw with their own eyes that the sand placed at the spot of hair at the top of the Buddha’s head began to disperse with inconceivable changes. Every grain of sand seemed to be alive. All sand grains moved individually with miraculous transformations to form a crown made of strands of hair, which very naturally and wonderfully stood up above the top of Sakyamuni Buddha’s head. A scene of adding a crown of strands of hair to the Buddha’s top-knot was manifested, proving that Sakyamuni Buddha is a true Buddha.

Immediately after and on the same table, the decision by selection was conducted for H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. The beseeching dharma document wrote, “We respectfully beseech a verification from the decision by selection. If H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the incarnation of the primordial Sambhogakaya-Buddha Dorje Chang Buddha, a crown made by strands of hair will be put on the head. If not, there will be no crown.” Wang Zha Shang Zun practiced the dharma following exactly the same ritual as before. After the twelve documents were burnt, the sand of the Ganges River with the color of light camel wool that had been flatly put on the spot of hair at the top of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s head suddenly had the miraculous transformation of being elevated upward. Sand grains connected with each other to form strands of hair standing in the air. The strands of hair then automatically formed a crown of hair. A 3-dimensional crown was put on the head of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III in the portrait, proving that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is a true Buddha coming to the world!

The last decision by selection was to verify whether the Sixth Patriarch Master Hui Neng was a Buddha’s nirmanakaya (meaning emanated body). The beseeching dharma document wrote, “We respectfully beseech a verification from the decision by selection. If the Sixth Patriarch Master Hui Neng is a Buddha’s nirmanakaya, a crown made by strands of hair will be put on the head. If not, there will be no crown.” As before, Wang Zha Shang Zun practiced the dharma following the same ritual and the twelve documents were burnt. Everyone saw that the sand of the Ganges River with the color of light camel wool placed at the top of Patriarch Master Hui Neng’s head had no movement or change at all. Therefore, the conclusion was that Patriarch Master Hui Neng was not a Buddha’s nirmanakaya. So a lower-level status had to be verified by the decision by selection, i.e. to determine whether Patriarch Master Hui Neng was an incarnation of a great Bodhisattva or not. The beseeching dharma document wrote, “We respectfully beseech a verification from the decision by selection. If the Sixth Patriarch Master Hui Neng is an incarnation of a great Bodhisattva, a crown made by strands of hair will be put on the head. If he was not at the level of a Bodhisattva, there will be no crown.” After Wang Zha Shang Zun practiced the dharma, a dharma crown was put on Master Hui Neng’s head. Sand grains formed a crown of hair. However, because Patriarch Master Hui Neng was not a Buddha or a Bodhisattva with universal or wonderful enlightenment, as stipulated by the dharma, the crown of hair did not stand up into the air and become a 3-dimensional crown, but was formed on a flat plane. However, it was very naturally structured and absolutely not something that can be made by humans.

The two sessions of the dharma assembly lasted more than five hours. To show the magnificence and extremely truthful nature of the crowning process through determination by the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue, each of the venerable ones, dharma kings, rinpoches, great dharma masters, dharma masters, great laypersons, and others attending the dharma assembly took a test to crown the visage using the sand from the Ganges River. As it turned out, none of the holy and virtuous ones present who are at the levels of Golden Button Grade 2, Golden Button Grade 1, and Blue Button Grade 3 were able to crown the Buddha’s portrait with sand from the Ganges River. There was no manifestation of power of Buddha-dharma to cause miraculous changes. This proved that the great dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue can only be practiced by extremely great holy and virtuous ones at the level of Golden Button Grade 3 or higher. No one else possesses the realization to practice the dharma successfully.

Wang Zha Shang Zun was very dissatisfied with himself for the first session. He said that his cultivation was shallow and lacked merit and virtue and that his own karmic forces caused him not to practice this dharma of decision by selection perfectly. The reality was that a few people in the observing crowd had their karmic forces become visible during the dharma assembly. They caused disturbance in the Buddha hall when they could not control their excitement upon seeing holy states. They shouted loudly and pushed others. Such disrespect toward the holy dharma kept the outcome from being completely perfect. For this reason, Wang Zha Shang Zun decided to hold a second session of the dharma assembly. Before the second dharma assembly started, Dharma King Gar Tongstan made the rules on behalf of Wang Zha Shang Zun. He announced that onlookers could get closer to watch but no one was allowed to speak loudly or push others. All must have the mind focusing on being respectful before moving closer. Then Wang Zha Shang Zun practiced the dharma. The second dharma assembly had a perfect success with extremely magnificent manifestations, proving again that Sakyamuni Buddha is a true Buddha and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the incarnation of the primordial Sambhogakaya-Buddha Dorje Chang Buddha. In the process, the sand of the Ganges River of the light camel wool color placed at the top of the head exhibited unimaginably miraculous transformation. A lose-hair crown changed into a head-covering crown and a thick-hair crown changed into a thin-hair crown. The strands of hair gathered or separated as required at different places to knit into a naturally perfect crown. Every sand grain had its own independent life. Some walked extremely fast; some wandered around casually; some followed twisted paths; some traveled past the boundary and then came back; and some climbed from the bottom to the top. The sand grains followed each other one by one to form strands of hair that stood into the air without falling. Eventually, a knot was formed to create a perfect crown for the Sambhogakaya-Buddha. Then, Wang Zha Shang Zun snapped a finger to perform a mudra and the strands of hair fell into a pile of sand with no trace left of the crown. Wang Zha Shang Zun issued a dharma decree to distribute the sand of the Ganges River (which became Vajra Sand after the dharma was performed) to all who were present. Every attendee received a share of the Vajra Sand that manifested the holy crown worn by the genuine incarnation of the Buddha.

The situation at the time was that the dharma was practiced with the same table, at the same position, following the same ritual, and using the same sand of the Ganges River. However, the three hair crowns created were completely different. There was one Bodhisattva two-dimensional crown and there were two Buddha hair crowns that were three-dimensional and stood into the air. The latter two were also different from each other in terms of shape and structure.

All attendees on the dharma assembly on that day took an oath to testify for the above reported true facts, “We all attended the dharma assembly for determining the status of the Buddha by the Dharma of Jin Gang Fa Man Ze Jue as practiced by Wang Zha Shang Zun. We clearly understand and believe in the law of cause and effect. What was stated above is true and without any false statement. If we lied to deceive people, we not only will not become accomplished but also will descend into the three lower realms to undergo extremely miserable suffering. If what was stated above is all true, we wish and pray that all living beings be able to learn the true dharma of the Tathagata from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and Sakyamuni Buddha, attain perfect good fortune and wisdom, and become accomplished and liberated to benefit countless living beings.”
