This Office has received some opinions. The most representative ones include, “Some well-known rinpoche master who had such a great fame and did so well in his learning now has had his own problems. This fact can hurt living beings’ ability to acquire wisdom. Can we still follow the discourses he gave earlier in our practice? We are very skeptical and doubtful. How could a great rinpoche who had such a high status and once gave his speech at the Hong Kong conference not act in accord with the dharma?”
Just considering the mentality of people with such skepticism, it shows that this type of person is irrational and incomprehensibly ignorant! We can conclude that you and people who belong to the same category are not cultivating in accord with the teaching of Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. In order to protect the interests of the great masses, not to let them be deceived by evildoers, and to prevent them from falling under the guidance and leadership of evil masters, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III repeatedly and over and over again stated, in many public announcements and validations of facts in response to letters received, that no master has the qualification of giving discourses regardless of how high his status may be, and that even discourses given by great holy virtuous ones at the level of three Sun-Moon wheels or higher are not perfect. Additionally, masters of whatever high status can only lead people to listen to the recorded dharma lessons expounded by Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Moreover, it has been specifically explained that even holy virtuous ones at the level of two Sun-Moon wheels have the risk of receding from attained accomplishment and returning to a mundane being. You should check how many Sun-Moon wheel(s) the holy virtuous masters you are skeptical about have. Perhaps they are not even at the level of having one Sun-Moon wheel.
For many times, the public announcements emphasized that you should not be deluded by one’s external status, identity, and lineage. When meeting whatever masters, eminent monks, dharma kings, and holy virtuous ones, you must use the 128 views for validation. Upon seeing one who falls into three erroneous views and/or one evil view, you should advise this person to repent and thoroughly correct. If not accepting the advice, this person must be an evil master whom you should leave immediately. Otherwise you will share and bear this person’s dark karmas. Do not cling to the fact that one gave a speech at a big dharma assembly or was praised in a recorded dharma lesson. Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III personally stated that, among the many dharma kings, venerable ones, great rinpoches, and great dharma masters in the world who have high-class statuses and/or have written many books and treatises, many are evil masters and swindlers. For those who have the titles of holy virtuous ones, it would be lucky that two or three percent of them can truly meet the standards. His Holiness the Buddha also said that, even among His disciples who had their photos published in the book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, at least half are problematic. This statement already revealed that this is not an issue involving only one or two evil masters and swindlers. Therefore, the only method is to use the 128 views to validate all masters and cultivators to distinguish who is good and who is evil before making a decision of following or abandoning!!!
His Holiness the Buddha reminded you over and over again with emphasis not to make judgments based on status and identity. However, you who are skeptics even let H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s teaching fall on deaf ears. Can’t you tell that you are too much shameless? You do not listen to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s teaching and do not follow the Office’s public announcements in your conduct. Worse, you did not read the public announcements and were causing trouble by effectively acting as accomplices of evil masters and swindlers. Now you even shamelessly stated that the problem(s) of a certain master would break many people’s roots of goodness. In reality, the people involved in the matters and had their roots of goodness “broken” simply did not have roots of goodness to speak of. Where are the roots of goodness to be broken? They only have the roots of karmic hindrance, and the roots of following evil masters and swindlers and then being deceived! Whatever problems caused by evil masters and swindlers do not break roots of goodness, rather, some people’s roots of taking part in the scam and being evildoers’ accomplices are broken. This is actually proving that the teaching by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is flawlessly correct and helps cultivators’ roots of goodness grow!!!
As of now, these extremely stupid people with skepticism are still continuing their ways of not listening to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s teaching and not reading the public announcements, validations of facts in response to letters received, and other documents published by this Office, and being skeptical regarding issues of principles that have already been explained very clearly. They are really false Buddhists who cannot be saved by any means. These people’s mentality, speech, and conduct are very similar to that of demonic persons and swindlers who regard evil as their own master. If you continue to judge based on superficial lineage and status, not read announcements and documents from this Office, and not use the 128 views to distinguish what is correct and what is evil, you are definitely false cultivators and false Buddhists waiting to devolve into the three lower realms, because many evil masters are waiting for you! On the contrary, if you can read and understand the announcements and documents from this Office, you will naturally give rise to correct views, be able to distinguish and recognize evil masters and correct masters, start to cultivate correctly, be able to learn true Buddha-dharma, act and abide along the path of enlightenment, and successfully accomplish the true liberation!!!!
Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said, “We should pray for any people who have created problems and hope that they correct their faults and make a fresh start, so that they will be spared from suffering and encountering disasters, become good people again, truly learn Buddhism and cultivate, and benefit the great masses.”
