from the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III:

Regarding the learning and practice of The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation that everybody is looking forward to and inquired about, the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III hereby issues the following announcement to the public.

1. Up to now, there have been only five people who received the highest inner tantric initiation of the state practice dharma of The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation. They are the two great holy virtuous ones who were recognized by letters from H.H. Dodrupchen Dharma King, Thupten Trinle Palzang (see the fact recorded in Pages 554 to 557 in the treasure book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III) and the three great virtuous ones of daoguo (daoguo means accomplishment of practice), Venerable Gar Tongstan IV Ciren Gyatso Dharma KingKaichu Rinpoche, and Dharma Master Miaokong. No other people have ever received nor learned The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation. The dharma book of The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation was only seen by the personnel at the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and has never been distributed or published anywhere else. At the Second Examination of Masters of Dharma-Listening Sessions held in Hong Kong in early August of 2009, the “Forward Guiding Article” (also referred to as the “Introductory Guide That Must Be Understood”) to The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation was distributed by the International Buddhism Shanga Association to those who received the title of acarya or masters of dharma-listening sessions. However, that is not the dharma book The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation.

2. The book The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation will be formally published by a publishing house. The Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III will confirm and issue a formal announcement at the time of publication.

H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III will not receive or charge any fees from the publication of this book. The publishing house already announced that the price of the book will be set at the publication cost and the book will be sold in public. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III also did not receive or charge any fee from the already published “Forward Guiding Article to The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation (Introductory Guide to The Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation That Must Be Understood)” and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s “Brief Explanation of Evil Views and Mistaken Views.” Both were provided free to the public for benefiting living beings.

3. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has accepted the beseeching request from the United International World Buddhism Headquarters and the International Buddhism Shanga Association and will teach dharma to the qualified acarya and masters of dharma-listening sessions as well as those truly kind cultivators. However, regarding any temples, Buddha halls, associations and dharma-listening organizations as well as all rinpoches, dharma masters, acaryas, and masters of dharma-listening sessions, except those that have been mentioned in the formal written announcements from the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III do not know about their situations and do not know their people. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III do not participate in any of their business and activities. The Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III only cares about their listening to the recorded dharma discourses by H. H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, to benefit their development of body and mind, joy and happiness, and early accomplishment of becoming kind people with wisdom.

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