According to a report from Sing Dao Daily published in Hong Kong, on August 6-7, 2011, the International Buddhism Sangha Association held the third Conference of Buddhism in Hong Kong. Over 8,000 delegates representing more than 6,000 Buddhist temples and dharma-listening centers from the continents of Asia, Europe, America and Australia attended the conference.
During the conference, all delegates listened to speeches given by Holy Virtuous One with Master’s Qualifications at the Beginning Level of Holy Realization Kaichu Rinpoche and Holy Virtuous One with Master’s Qualifications at the Beginning Level of Holy Realization Dharma King Gar Tongstan as well as other rinpoches. They also viewed the video recordings of the accomplishments of Buddhist disciples realized from their self-cultivation and saw what one should rely on and follow in order to pursue true cultivation and true Buddha-dharma brought to us by the revelation of a true Buddha to this world. The thoughts and Buddha-dharma of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III with the principles of “upholding the fundamental practice of loving kindness and compassion, benefiting others selflessly, enduring insults and abiding by the precepts, and attaining liberation and accomplishment” must be carried out by Buddhist disciples in real cultivation.
However, there still exist relatively few people who, due to the lack of comprehension of the essence of Buddha-dharma, not having a clear understanding from listening to the recorded dharma lessons expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, and not to mention the lack of understanding from reading The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation, raised some questions to the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III to seek verification. Because the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did not participate in the activities of the International Buddhism Sangha Association, in order to benefit living beings with correct knowledge and views, we will consult with the International Buddhism Sangha Association as well as the related rinpoches comprehensively to know about the overall situation of the whole conference and then issue a public announcement to inform everyone.
From the Office of H. H. Dorje Chang Buddha III,
