Statement #11

Published on May 11, 2012

In the Twenty-Seventh Public Announcement from the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (the Office) published today (May 11, 2012), because a member of the Office did not verify with caution and only made a casual telephone call to inquire the fact, a serious error was created in one of the paragraphs. Upon discovering the error, the director of the Office as well as the involved personnel sincerely offered their repentance to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and all living beings.

It has been almost four years since the establishment of the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. There were altogether two fund-raising activities. On average, the amount raised each time is a little more than US$1300. The total amount from the two fund-raising activities is US$2750. However, because that member of the Office did not check carefully, the number of a little more than US$1300 was put into the public announcement. This is an erroneous act that seriously violated the law of cause and effect. The Office hereby takes this opportunity to openly explain and apologize to the whole society. At the same time, we once again accept the responsibility and deeply repent ourselves to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

From the Office of H. H. Dorje Chang Buddha III,
