from the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III:
In response to the letters from Buddhists inquiring about whether H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has ever recognized people who were reincarnations of Vajra Bodhisattva, Dakini, or holy dharma-protectors. The Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (the Office) hereby gives the following replies:
In this world, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has never recognized a specific person as Vajra Bodhisattva, Dakini, or a holy dharma-protector. If anyone wants to be recognized, it can only be possible if this person possesses master’s qualifications at the middle level of holy realization with the proof of passing the exam proctored by seven masters and ten witnesses and having a certificate signed by them. Moreover, this person must be deeply proficient in prajna. Of course, there already exist such great holy virtuous ones who possess master’s qualifications at the middle level of holy realization. However, so far in this world, there isn’t anyone who received a certificate of recognition signed by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said, “I only feel that I am a humble one. Living beings and I are equal. What qualification do I have to give recognitions to others? In addition, I cannot be careless with living beings’ vital interest to recognize an amateur as an expert or recognize an ordinary person as a holy one.”
No one has the qualification of distributing his or her own writings or written notes as teaching materials for others, unless he or she possesses master’s qualifications at the middle level of holy realization (Note: if the teaching of a master who has master’s qualifications at the middle level of holy realization was taken out of context, it is still possible to find a few errors.). Without master’s qualifications at the middle level of holy realization, regardless of what great Bodhisattva the author claims to be, the writing is certain to contain large number of erroneous and evil views. Anyone who listened to or received to read such teaching must stop on the first such occasion and repent deeply. On second offense, the consequence is that this person will not receive an initiation of state practice within this entire lifetime. Remember, a cultivator should only listen to dharma lessons expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III that are complete without any content being deleted.
Because there are too many people of various kinds who hold the signs of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III in the outside world, please write to the Office directly when inquiring about important matters. The e-mail addresses are:
Please note that the number of words in the message is limited to be 60, otherwise the message will not be accepted for processing. This is because our office is the poorest non-profit organization in the world. Within the last four years, the total funds raised are a little more than 1300 US dollars. We cannot afford to hire office staff to make correspondences to so many inquirers. Please understand and forgive us.
