Regarding the inquiries about the question of secret recognition of Shi Jiexue in Taiwan by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III hereby issues a few brief statements as follows.
1. As early as in the year of 1998, because of Shi Jiexue’s serious violation of the precepts he received as a monastic and the violations he committed according to a number of the articles of evil views and erroneous views, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III expelled him and decided not to receive him again until he thoroughly repented and corrected himself. Several years later, based on supporting recommendations from one rinpoche and several cultivators and for teaching and changing him due to love and compassion, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III received him one more time. He was reprimanded and given a discourse in the presence of others. He was told to carry out good deeds only, to do well in self-cultivation, not to falsely claim to be a virtuous one, and not to do un-true acts to living beings. Since that time, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has not seen Shi Jiexue again.
2. Not only did H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III never give Shi Jiexue any recognition, there was not any recognition of Shi Jiexue from any of the disciples of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III who are rinpoches. Furthermore, throughout history, recognitions are always given and known to the public. There is no such thing as a secret recognition.
3. The Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III would like to emphasize once more that you should listen to the dharma discourses by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and should study the sutras of Sakyamuni Buddha. Only those are correct and error-free dharma treasures that can lead living beings to accomplishment and liberation. Shi Jiexue simply does not possess the basis for giving discourses on the true Buddha-dharma.
4. Before the formal publication of the book The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation in the world, the “128 Evil Views and Erroneous Views” can be used to judge and prove the correctness or not of anyone. The conclusion will be clear at a glance. This is an iron-clad law.
The statement is hereby given.
