The Following Are Questions Raised by the Son of Palden Lodoe Hsi Jao Ken Teng, Sangyixi Songjie VIII Rinpoche, on Behalf of Palden Lodoe’s Disciples in Taiwan
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Expounded the Dharma Individually to These Questions:
Question presented: Is selling spaces in the Great Fortune Golden Seat Buddhist work?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: To those Buddhist disciples who did business in the ossuary of the Great Fortune Golden Seat, previously, you followed Hsi Jao Ken Teng and spoke falsely. This is very terrible. These earlier phenomena absolutely cannot occur in the future. You cannot make false statements and cannot fabricate stories. If you can invite dharma kings and/or dharma masters in temples to save the deceased spirits housed in the ossuary to higher realms, this is very great Buddhist work. If you fabricate lies such as “Kuan Yin Bodhisattva expounds the dharma in the Great Fortune Golden Seat” like your father Hsi Jao Ken Teng made up, that is purely nonsense for deceiving the great masses. Not only doing so is not Buddhist work, rather it is a defrauding act by devils and villains. Those who followed him and spoke falsely committed the same dark karmas and severe sins. You can only use the dharma of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva to elevate the deceased spiritual consciousness. This is Buddhist work and can also have the effect of increasing the resources of good fortune for you all, without the slightest factor of erring on cause and effect. Removing disasters and extending longevity are also meritorious work.
Question presented: Can we all repent together?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Repenting does not mean letting you say a few sentences while kneeling on the ground. Doing so is totally useless. True repentance is correcting the fault thoroughly. For example, Palden Lodoe committed extremely great and malicious sins and deserved the punishment of death and extermination anywhere from heaven to earth. Right before entering the hell realm, he heard the recorded dharma I expounded and immediately generated true repentance. Then he told you, his son Songjie Rinpoche, his criminal conduct and wanted you not to learn his sins and malicious conduct and to cultivate in accord with the teaching of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. That was why he was rescued and brought to the Pure Land by Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. Your repentance should be treating people honestly and sincerely, treating people with loving compassion, not speaking lies, not deceiving people, and taking solid steps to do Buddhist work to benefit living beings.
Question presented: Is it true that a deceased one that has entered the Great Fortune Golden Seat will not descend into the three lower realms?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: This is a very guilty statement and an evil fraud committed to deceive living beings! You cannot lie. The consequence of the three lower realms is the causality due to one’s own speech and conduct. However, at least you can recite sutras and chant mantras for the deceased ones in the Great Fortune Golden Seat as added efforts to save them to higher realms. Doing so is meritorious.
Question presented: Is the Great Fortune Golden Seat Kuan Yin Bodhisattva’s Bodhimanda (site of enlightenment)?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: This statement truly insults Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. The Great Fortune Golden Seat is an ossuary. Where Kuan Yin Bodhisattva resides is a holy Bodhimanda. Hsi Jao Ken Teng was bold in the extreme to insult an extremely great holy and virtuous one. The crime is unforgivable! Those of you who were clearly aware of this through the many years but did not report committed collective karmas and should share the burden of sins.
Question presented: Was the Great Fortune Golden Seat empowered to raise deceased souls to higher realms?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Form 2001 to 2002, I received some lists of names that Hsi Jao Ken Teng sent. After raising these deceased spirits, because I was too busy with works of Buddha-dharma, I did not do any raising of deceased spirits for that ossuary. However, I heard from Hsi Jao Ken Teng that the works of raising deceased spirits were sent to many temples to be done there.
Question presented: I bought 105 offerings to my adversaries, related ones, and debtors. Does that err on cause and effect? Can that extend my lifespan for 10 years?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Today I heard for the first time that you also do business in signs and positions to make offerings to one’s adversaries, related ones, and debtors. This is truly an odd and peculiar news. Perhaps this is a custom in your Taiwan. Of course, if the activities of chanting the sutras, raising the deceased spirits, and dedicating the merit of mantras have really been carried out for every position, you did not err on cause and effect. If such Buddhist works have not been done, the hosting firm and the individual(s) doing the promotion will err on cause and effect. Doing these Buddhist works to truly chant the sutras, raise the deceased spirits, and dedicate the merit of mantras to the adversaries, related ones, and debtors, the people who did these Buddhist works would accumulate merit. However, what does this have to do with extending one’s lifespan? This is simply a strange and absurd argument in terms of Buddhism. To extend the lifespan, one has to practice the longevity dharma plus not to err on cause and effect.
Question presented: His Holiness the Buddha’s recorded dharma lessons mentioned what Hsi Jao Ken Teng did was not Buddhist work. Then what his disciples did was not Buddhist work either. We would like to ask what part(s) (of what he did) this refers to.
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: That refers to very many parts. If you committed offense in just the above-mentioned several issues, can you be regarded as doing Buddhist work? Moreover, there will be more answers to you in the following. Whether doing Buddhist work or not, you can assess for yourself. They helped your father by waving flags, cheering with loud voices, and lying. All these are not Buddhist work and, rather, are sinful and malicious acts. For instance, setting the signs and positions to make offerings to one’s adversaries, related ones, and debtors was not known to me at all. I just heard about it for the first time. The key is whether the effort of raising to higher realms was really made. If yes, you did Buddhist work. If you only generated the sales but did not really do the activities of raising to higher realms, that is not doing Buddhist work.
Question presented: Has the Great Fortune Golden Seat registered a case in the Western World of Ultimate Bliss or is it a spring board for going to the World of Ultimate Bliss?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: This is a very absurd statement. It is a completely evil one! How can the World of Ultimate Bliss have this name of the Great Fortune Golden Seat? The World of Ultimate Bliss is a holy land. You can only say that, if an extremely great holy and virtuous one performed the dharma to raise a deceased soul, the deceased soul will ascend to the World of Ultimate Bliss. However, it must be said that among various kinds of Buddhist work, the work of saving the deceased has the biggest merit. If you helped these deceased souls enter the World of Ultimate Bliss and then did the Buddhist work in accord with the dharma, this merit is truly great.
Question presented: One should have correspondence of the three karmas with the master, but now the master has passed away. What should one do?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: The master refers to masters who meet the standards of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, not people who receded from accomplishment to become ordinary ones again due to sins and evils. Those of you thinking this way did not read the public announcements (from the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, the Office) and can only be described as being in a mess. How could you have asked this as a question? Only June 19, I stated Hsi Jao Ken Teng’s sinful conduct publicly and told you to support your dharma brother Songjie Rinpoche. I could not have imagined that you are still adhering to delusion and do not have awareness until today and that you still have such a question. At that time I told you to wash away the sins and evils you and Hsi Jao Ken Teng committed. If you do not listen to what I said, even if all Buddhas in the ten directions came, you would not be rescued. The reason is that you partnered with Hsi Jao Ken Teng to deceive people, damaged the Macang sect, and then ran away without doing anything responsible. New sins are committed after the old.
Question presented: Some students went to the Great Fortune Golden Seat to listen to dharma lessons because the recorded dharma lessons expounded by our Buddha Grandmaster are available there. To the deceased ones, what benefits does going to the Great Fortune Golden Seat have?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: The availability of my recorded dharma lessons there does not have any benefit to the deceased ones, unless my recorded dharma lessons are broadcast in the hall of the deceased ones. Even doing so can only provide benefits to some deceased ones but not to others. This is because some deceased ones have already been raised to higher realms and their spiritual consciousnesses are no longer at the Great Fortune Golden Seat; some have already transmigrated to the six realms to be reborn there and cannot hear the recorded dharma lessons and therefore will not receive benefits; some others are wandering around in the ghost realm, cannot hear the recorded dharma lessons either, and therefore will not receive benefits for the same reason. Let’s not talk about deceased spirits, even people who listened to the recorded dharma lessons but do not act accordingly will not have benefits either. Those who act against the teaching are certain to meet karmic retributions. For instance, I told you already on June 19, but you still raise questions from the opposite direction today. This is a same situation. Palden Lodoe is an example.
Question presented: How should the master’s visage be placed in the Buddha hall?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Remove it. He is already a person who committed serious offense against the precepts and did evil deeds. If he is your current master, he is just a demonic and evil master!!! If you still want to follow him, you are demonic and evil disciples!!! Although he has ascended to the Pure Land, he does not teach the dharma to you now. You should support Songjie Rinpoche to propagate true Buddha-dharma. The situation is like this, a person has become a demon but you continue to follow and learn respectfully from him as usual. What will the outcome be?
Question presented: Should the book Pious Devotion continue to be in circulation?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Stop completely. That book was done when his speech and conduct were correct and upright. Later, his nature changed long ago. You should clearly know that Buddha-dharma from all Buddhas in the ten directions is charitably given to all equally, just as the Sun in the space illuminates and disseminates warmth equally. However, if your conduct makes you hide in a dark cave or hole, the Sun has no way to illuminate on you. When the illumination is on you, you have received good empowerment. When you are hidden, you have received darkness. To a cultivator, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas must say that he is good when he is good; must say he is not good when he is not; and will say he is good again when he becomes good again. This is the verification and validation from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas called for by his causes and effects.
Question presented: How should the news reports, pictures, and so on about the master be handled?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: All should be collected and put away and must not be displayed for worshipping. You can only display and worship the visages of Sakyamuni Buddha, Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, and the lineage refuge tree.
Question presented: When questions arise at dharma-listening centers and temples or from rinpoches and students, who should reply?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Submit all important questions to Songjie Rinpoche. Songjie Rinpoche will present them to me or holy and virtuous ones to beseech answers. If you do not listen to what I say, go and listen to what Palden Lodoe says to share the dark karmas, continue committing sins, and follow him to get karmic retributions. Otherwise, how could you ask such a question? When I received you on June 19, I already told you that you should support your dharma brother Songjie Rinpoche to wash clean the sins and dark karmas committed when you help to do bad things and tell lies to deceive people in the past.
Question presented: Can the dharma expounded by the Buddha Grandmaster on June 19 be published on the website of Macang Monastery?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Without exact audio recording, there will be errors from your memory. On the other hand, these contents of today can be put on the internet after verification. Don’t do that without verification, in case there are errors in Songjie’s written records!
Question presented: Should the videotape of the Saving-Deceased Dharma of the Great Fortune Golden Seat be called back?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Call back and put away.
Question presented: Does the Great Fortune Golden Seat have the effect of saving the deceased and benefiting living beings?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: This has been expounded very clearly in the above.
Question presented: Can the merit from working on the Great Fortune Golden Seat transform and convert dark karmas?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Merit from saving the deceased is the biggest. Whether the merit is big or small and whether there is merit or not depends on whether the signs and positions you provide for the deceased ones or for the longevity of living ones are blessed with chanting sutras, raising to higher realms, dedicating the merit from mantras, and empowerment. If these are done by an extremely great holy and virtuous one, the more work you do for the Great Fortune Golden Seat, the bigger your merit. If no Buddhist work is done at the Great Fortune Golden Seat, you have no merit at all and have sins and evil instead.
Question presented: Our master Palden Lodoe said that working for the Great Fortune Golden Seat is merit. Then why is it collective karmas? If it is collective karmas, we beseech His Holiness the Buddha to expound the dharma on what collective karmas are.
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: You should clearly understand the law of cause and effect. If you did not speak lies when working for the Great Fortune Golden Seat and treated living beings sincerely with loving compassion, you do not have sin and, rather, do have merit. If you take part in Palden Lodoe Hsi Jao Ken Teng’s gang to wave flags, cheer with loud voices, fabricate lies, and create false events and false appearances to deceive the great masses, then you naturally share the same sins as Palden Lodoe and are extremely sinful and malicious. This is the collective karmas from working together with Hsi Jao Ken Teng to commit sins as his accomplices.
Question presented: Does the act of beseeching the signs and offering spaces for one’s adversaries, related ones, and debtors benefit both these deceased ones and the living one (self)?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: The dharma has been expounded already earlier on this.
Question presented: Will the master continue to raise and empower living beings in the Great Fortune Golden Seat after his entering nirvana? If he no longer does this, would he invite other people to do this?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Speaking of your master, being one who has receded from attained accomplishment to a mundane being due to evil karmas committed and often deceived living beings and violated Buddha-dharma, can he have a slice of the power to raise deceased to higher realms? You do not read the public announcements (issued by the Office) and truly silly and ignorant to the extreme. Even now you are still using your master to raise the deceased. He could not even take care of himself. Such mentality of yours show that you belong to the same category of villains as Hsi Jao Ken Teng.
Question presented: The master had a discourse saying that he would bring his disciples to Buddha-land. However, before this promise becomes true, he has entered nirvana already.
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Who gave your master the qualification to give discourses? Is he a holy and virtuous one at the level of three Sun-Moon wheels? Your master simply did not possess the qualification to give discourses. When his life was about to end, he was almost detained and brought into the hell realm. How do you dare to mention the word of nirvana for him? The person who raised this kind of question does not read the public announcements. It was pointed out repeatedly in the public announcements that one who is not up to the level of three Sun-Moon wheels does not possess the qualification to give discourses. You do not read the public announcements and are just like a piece of rotten wood that cannot be saved with any medicine. You should learn from Pladen Lodoe in his generating true repentance and thoroughly correcting the evil and turning toward doing goodness when his life was about to end. He was unable to liberate himself at the time. (Songjie Rinpoche chipped in: He sincerely repented due to listening to the recorded dharma lesson expounded by the Buddha Grandmaster.) Kuan Yin Bodhisattva rescued him.
I must say that your master was a very good cultivators more than ten years ago. After that his nature gradually changed. Then I stopped teaching him. In the middle there was a period of time during which he was awaken with awareness and repented. He made the vow to practice Vajra Body Substitution Meditation and became successful. After the examination he deteriorated again and again became an arrogant person and violated precepts. He again fell into many of the 128 views and eventually receded his accomplishment and became an ordinary person again. At that time he did not even possess the qualification of a common master. That was why retributions of his dark karmas manifested to cause his lifetime shortened with a miserable ending. Eventually he heard the recorded dharma lesson and repented. He was then rescued by Kuan Yin Bodhisattva to reincarnate in the Pure Land.
Question presented: It was mentioned in the recorded dharma lessons expounded by His Holiness the Buddha that he violated the precepts right after taking the examination to become a holy and virtuous one. Does that mean that what he did before violating the precepts is Buddhist work and what he did after violating the precepts belongs to dark karmas?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: You say that he violated the precepts right after taking the examination to become a holy and virtuous one. Why can’t you understand from listening? Violating the precepts has nothing to do with whether he became a holy and virtuous one or did not become holy and virtuous one after taking the examination. I was only telling you this:
He made the vow to practice Vajra Body Substitution Meditation. If he was not successful, he would sever one arm from his body. In the end, he practiced by himself and became successful. To prove this fact, he had to undergo verification and validation. That was why he took the examination and passed to become a holy and virtuous one. After passing the examination to become a holy and virtuous one and returning to Taiwan, he began to arrogantly boast about himself. He even had speech and behaviors that insulted the Buddha and holy ones and committed malicious sins of the five turbidities. Due to the occurrence of this fact, he violated the precepts.
Can you let me tell you that his violating precepts was not after passing the examination to become a holy and virtuous one? Let’s not say wisdom, you do not even have cleverness to speak of, since you did not even understand the speech you heard. This is similar to the situation that I just gave a teaching to some of you to tell you to support Songjie Rinpoche but you violated the precepts only two days after the dharma was expounded to you. Since violating the precepts is a fact that occurred at a certain time, the time has to be stated. Furthermore, when did I tell about when he violated the precepts?
With this karmic condition, I now tell you. In 2001, I heard some hearsays related to Ken Teng. Then I found out that he had many problems involving violating the precepts and educated him seriously. However, he corrected a bit and then committed offense again, repeating this process back and forth. Thus I no longer transmitted the dharma to him. However, while he committed errors, he was also doing Buddhist work. The situation was like this until when his life was ending. For example, he developed dharma-listening centers so people could listen to my recorded dharma lessons. This is Buddhist work. As another example, his inviting eminent monks and temples to do the work of raising deceased spirits to higher realm and empowering living ones’ longevity is also Buddhist work. Also, his resistance and attack to demons’ and evildoers’ slandering is doing Buddhist work.
What happened in 2011 was that he committed icchantika of the five cardinal sins. Actually as early as in 2001, targeting at the dark karmas created mainly by Hsi Jao Ken Teng as well as some other masters, I specifically expounded a dharma lesson titled “True Vajra Masters and True Inner-Tantric Initiations,” which was recorded into three CDs. These three CDs were distributed at that time. Why didn’t you listen to the lesson? Until now, you people even perceive that he started to make dark karmas only until 2011. You normally do not read the public announcements to distinguish what’s upright and what’s evil. You are filled up with evil knowledge and views. Your disobedience is even to the extent of treating what I said as falling on deaf ears. I am very disappointed at you. Some of you violated the precepts to change what I told you clearly and publicly on June 19 to something else immediately after turning around. You truly belong to the category of people who cannot be educated!
Question presented: When seeing the master for the last time, we saw a copy of Expounding the Absolute Truth through the Heart Sutra was laid on his chest. Can we also put a copy with us at the time of passing away? Separately, can the dharma manual that we use for our daily practice be brought with us at that time?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: Regarding this copy of Expounding the Absolute Truth through the Heart Sutra, upon seeing Ken Teng’s pitiful and miserable situation, I wrote an inscription and signed my name on the book to beseech Kuan Yin Bodhisattva to receive him to the World of Ultimate Bliss and then explain the dharma to him. I bestowed a copy of the Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation to him to let him cultivate in accord with the dharma after arriving at the World of Ultimate Bliss. The books of these two dharmas will be cremated along with his body and of course will bring him magnificent merit. If you want to do the same, it will be an insult to Buddha-dharma because the book is not given personally by me, this humble one. However, the dharma manual used in your daily practice can be brought with you when you pass away.
Question presented: A few days ago after listening to the recorded dharma lesson expounded by the Buddha Grandmaster, the Sun was shining broadly outside. We saw raindrops falling from trees but not to the ground. We beseech a discourse.
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: If this had not happened before, perhaps it was nectar in the form of raindrops through a tree. However, I was expounding the dharma in a very common way. How could my recorded dharma lessons have such merit? Maybe this was a kind of phenomenon manifesting that Buddhas and Bodhisattvas pity me and bestow nectar from the sky. You must listen to the dharma lesson expounded in 2001.
Question presented: How should matters such as taking refuge, requesting dharma, and so on in Taiwan and Thailand be handled?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: The person raising this question has the speech, conduct, and mentality corresponding to descending into one of the three lower realms. I told you openly on June 19 already about the people who had created the sins and dark karmas of helping contaminate the Macang sect and now abandoned and did not care about Macang to follow other masters and who did not wash clean the sins and evil they committed and did not correct their sins and faults of helping to tell lies, making false events, untrue and inflated flattery and boasting, and deceiving living beings. These people not only will not be able to learn true Buddha-dharma but also will encounter karmic retributions. I already pointed out that you should support Songjie Rinpoche. I will teach you the Buddha-dharma that you do not know. However, you even treat what I said just like it was falling on deaf ears. I can only say that the people who have this kind of evil impediment are truly rotten wood pieces that cannot be carved!
If you can think of a person who is capable, apply to the United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters (UIWBAH) for holding an examination to test and verify. Without a verification, I don’t know whom to send, since I am a humble one and do not have the realization and power of cultivation to recognize. I only saw that Songjie Rinpoche is sincere and honest. He is impartial to his father’s sins and faults, can state the facts not favorable to himself without being concerned about his own development and interests, and is not afraid of hurting or harming himself. What kind of brightness and unselfishness is this? So far, among all dharma kings, rinpoches, and dharma masters of your Macang sect, there is no second person who has such virtue and conduct. A person with such bright mind and conduct is also extremely rare in history. Isn’t this true? If you think there is a second such person, please point out. You can recommend the person go and take the examination. As long as the person can pass the examination, I will approve.
Question presented: Why did the master’s body turn into black color?
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: After creating such dark karmas of violating the teaching and deceiving living beings, could his body not turn black and become a bright one instead? Can the body not manifest the appearance of the dark karmas and instead manifest an appearance of brightness? This is possible only if one practices the dharma of Mahakala, Mahakala Luga, Black Lion Vajra, or Yamantaka Vajra. However, Palden Lodoe Hsi Jao Ken Teng had not practiced any of these dharmas. Although now he has been rescued by Yuan Yin Bodhisattva to be reborn there, the sins and dark karmas as well as the relations of cause and effect must manifest. Do you understand? This is the law of cause and effect. Based on the series of questions you raised, I am very concerned that your body will also turn into black color in the future. I conclude definitively that you are still in the midst of ignorance, delusion, unawareness, and evil knowledge and views.
Question presented: The dharma assembly in Thailand had a surplus of 11 million bahts. It was said at that time to wire the money to the United States to build the Buddha Grandmaster’s temple. In the end, the foundation of Macang Monastery borrowed this amount to buy land and build a temple. So the money was not wired to the United States. We beseech instruction as to how we should act in accord with the dharma.
Dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: I do not know what you are talking about at all. Also, I never thought about building my temple. I only help monastics to build their temples. Only the United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters said that they wanted to build the world’s biggest temple in the United States and planned to invite me to go into the temple to be in charge of the headquarter temple of Buddhism in the world. However, currently the site to build this biggest temple has not yet been finalized. Moreover, there is no such money to build it. You people are only able to say what is nice to hear. Or you will just say that you don’t have money and your money has been spent completely. When did I want a cent from you? When did I ask for offerings from you? Let me tell you clearly that my vow is not accepting offerings and benefiting living beings without being paid. Stop using such a method to contaminate me and all Buddhas in the ten direction!
Your money is no longer there and has been spent completely. Where was the money spent? It was spent on creating sins and building the shelter for committing fraud. Isn’t this true? Speaking of things that create sins, you love to spend money on and will spend all the money. When telling you to wash away your sins and dark karmas, to reestablish your sect of Buddhism upright, and to do the justified work of Buddhism, your money has been all spent. Have you thought about this? You have money to do evil and have no money to do things that benefit living beings. What are you?! Are you still Buddhists? Are you Buddhists or followers of demons and evildoers?
You did not give money to the United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters to build the temple. Nor did you present a cent to me as an offering. You spent the money to invest in your shelter to defraud people in Thailand and places to create sins. How do you have the shame to say these words that are so nice to hear? You joined Palden Lodoe’s gang to wave flags and cheer with loud voices for him and committed such unforgivable sins and evil. And you still even do not listen to the dharma I expounded on June 19. That is why you raised these questions, causing people to be sad for you from seeing the shadows of your descending into the lower destinations. Now I tell you once again:
You ganged with Palden Lodoe to make false deceptions, beat the drum for his propaganda, and disturbed Macang sect’s teaching of Buddha-dharma. Now Songjie Rinpoche will be in charge of the Macang sect as its fourth dharma king. You should wash clean your sins and dark kamras, support the rinpoche, and sustain and build the authentic dharma lineage of Macang. To those who do not care the consequence after contaminating Buddha-dharma and run away without taking up responsibility, I will not recognize them. You should wake up immediately, diligently listen to the recorded dharma lessons, read the public announcements issued by the Office, cultivate by making concrete steps, stop lying, stop doing bad things, and benefit others. Only by doing so, can you attain accomplishment and liberation! With a mind of sincere cultivation, you will attain accomplishment and liberation. Even though Palden Lodoe made various kinds of sins and dark karmas, at last he sincerely repented and Kuan Yin Bodhisattva also rescued him to the Pure Land.
You should listen to the three recorded dharma lessons of “Expounding the Dharma to Dedicate Merit to Fur Fur’s Passing Away; the Prediction Will Be Verified,” “Why Holy and Virtuous Ones, Venerable Ones, Dharma Kings, and Great Dharma Masters Can Also End Their Lifetimes without Becoming Accomplished?” and “Having Problems due to Not Cultivating Well Does Not Mean You Will Not Be Able to Correct; You Can Still Correct and Be a Good Person.” Even though you have committed sins and faults, as long as you truly and thoroughly repent and correct the faults, upright conduct will give rise to decent fruit. I will still transmit holy dharma of the Tathagata to you based on your karmic conditions. Then, attaining accomplishment will not be a problem.
