H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Does Not Accept Offerings!!

No One Has the Authority to Accept Offerings on Behalf of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!!!

Recently, incidents of some people accepting offerings on behalf of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III occurred again. Therefore, the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III issues the following public announcement on this matter to remind you all once again.

H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said, “You all should pay particular attention to know that I have made the vow of always benefiting the great masses for free and forever not accepting offerings. I once again remind you all that I do not accept donations or offerings from anyone.”

“Through the many years, I have clearly and seriously announced over and over again in the recorded dharma discourses and the public announcements that I do not accept offerings. I made such announcement publicly in the book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III published in 2008. Today I again state my vow, speech, and conduct clearly. That is: I do not accept offerings; and no one is authorized to accept offerings or donations on my behalf. As a matter of fact, I have never accepted any offering from you or any offering presented through a third party. Why so? This is because I made the vow of always benefiting the great masses for free and forever not accepting offerings.”

“You should think seriously about a fact. From the recordings of the dharma discourses I gave during the many years from the time I began to expound the dharma to now and from the publication of my photos showing the contrasting appearances I could have received the income that I am properly and legitimately entitled to from the copyrights of the recorded dharma discourses and the photos, but I did not accept a penny from that. Then, why would I accept your offerings? Would I be so silly to the extent of not accepting the money that I am properly and legitimately entitled to and instead accepting offerings from you to contaminate myself and damage my vow?”

“Therefore, if you still believe the words of some people stating that they have transferred your offerings to me, there can only be one fact: you have been deceived and defrauded. Your offerings must have been privately intercepted by the persons who claimed to do the transfer. I have never received any! Perhaps the persons who claimed doing the transfer may swear to you or make their vow of truth, but you should understand a fact. If one dares err on the law of cause and effect by privately embezzling the offerings, would this person be afraid of making a false vow of truth?”

“I hope that you keep this public announcement close and handy to you and read and become familiar with the contents at any time. Do not forget! If you are still unable to understand this announcement from reading, still do not listen to what I said, and do not know clearly what my attitude is, that would have shown that you have no affinity with me. Then, you should not come in the future. I will not see you.”

We understand that your intention of presenting offerings to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is due to your concern about H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s living. Actually, with His art, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III can rely on His labor to make a living without a problem. You can learn this fact if you have the opportunity to visit the Hall of Fish Paintings by Famous Artists. The artworks exhibited there are all from famous painting artists at the highest national level.

The Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III,
