Announcement No. 20130101

Published on April 14, 2013

 from the International Buddhism Sangha Association:

Some people even committed such act of seriously slighting Buddha-dharma. They put the sacred and solemn dharma video of an elder dharma king practicing the dharma of receiving nectars on the internet for circulation and distribution. This type of acts of despising the dharma, disparaging the dharma, and insulting the dharma are acts of sin and karmic impediment. This kind of people will not receive empowerment from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. They will not be able to learn high-class Buddha-dharma. This is because such a person simply does not know the preciousness of Buddha-dharma. Any dharma or mantra must be beseeched for transmission after respectfully paying homage in a Buddha hall. The sacred and solemn dharma video of beseeching nectars must be treated even more so.

As early as several years ago, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III expounded this dharma to some individual dharma masters of the International Buddhism Sangha Association, “You have been showing the nectar video all the time. Doing so disparagingly publicizes nectars as a kind of miraculously effective pills for liberating living beings. That is wrong. In order to let living beings grow their good fortune and wisdom, relying on nectars will not work. To truly attain liberation and accomplishment, living beings must carefully listen and understand the dharma of What Is Cultivation and carry out the teaching into practice. In addition, when the Supreme and Unsurpassed Mahamudra of Liberation is published later on, there will be two great mind essences in the dharma. As long as one can carry out the teaching in one’s practice of body, speech, and mind, this person will truly have the dharma treasure for attaining liberation and accomplishment. Of course, I did not say that nectars are not dharma treasure.”

Now, the International Buddhism Sangha Association saw such act of slighting Buddha-dharma of publishing this sacred and solemn dharma treasure on the internet in a disrespectful manner. This is an extremely big insult to Buddha-dharma. You should know that nectars are treasures of Buddha-dharma that is difficult to encounter in billions of eons. Nectars absolutely cannot be acquired by the practice of your so-called holy and virtuous ones. The dharma can only be practiced by extremely great holy and virtuous ones (Buddhas or Bodhisattvas at the level of universal enlightenment or wonderful enlightenment). That is why nectars are very precious and hard to get even in billions of eons. However, your act of slighting Buddha-dharma would lead cultivators to misunderstand cultivation. We really feel sorry for this person. Doing so would lead cultivators to a wrong direction. They would think about beseeching nectars all the time without success. In the end, they would have wasted the time of cultivation, seriously violated the teachings by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and Sakyamuni Buddha, and be divorced from cultivation as a result.

Buddhist disciples shall follow the dharmas expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, What Is Cultivation, the two published great mind essences of “Contemplating the Magnificence of Perfect Prerequisite Oceanic Mind Essence” and “the Most Magnificent Bodhi Dakini Oceanic Mind Essence” of the Supreme and Unsurpassed Mahamudra of Liberation, and Expounding the Absolute Truth through the Heart Sutra, to cultivate and learn Buddha-dharma. This is the thing that we shall do.

This announcement is hereby made publicly to all.
