Validation of Facts in Response to Letter of Inquiry by the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III:
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did have a phone conversation with a disciple in China on October 14, 2013.
This event started at 9:48pm in the evening of that day, which was 12:48pm in the afternoon of October 15, 2013 in China. Our Office made a phone call to a disciple in China to inquire about some matters. After the phone was hung up, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III let the personnel of the Office call this disciple again. After the line was connected, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III spoke to this disciple in person over the phone.
During the phone conversation, this disciple repented himself to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. He said that he had been wrong in the past and from now on he would once again start to listen to the dharma with fellow disciples. The number of his dharma-listening centers would only increase, not decrease.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III told him over the phone, “Since you have such intention, I am happy for you. Being able to correct one’s error upon knowing it is true cultivation. Human life is impermanent. One shall cultivate in accordance to Buddha-dharma and precepts and rules and benefit living beings. You should clearly know that there is not even one person whose conduct does not conform to that of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in the world of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. I will teach you Buddha-dharma.”
This was the only phone conversation and its contents between H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and this disciple in the year of 2013. This was also the only phone call that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III made to China in the year of 2013.

Can the Office Let Us All Know Whether H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Called This Master over the Phone Or Not?

Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!
Respected Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III,
I am a Buddhist disciple in Chengdu. In October of this year, several Buddhist disciples here said that the several of them heard in person a phone call from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said over the phone, “Even I trust your master. How can you not trust your master?”
These Buddhist disciples also took their oaths to say that they heard it in person. We would like to seek verification from the Office, because some people suspected that the phone call did not seem to be right. The voice of the Buddha Grand Master, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, and the speech of this master did not sound right and was not like a phone conversation. Rather, it sounded like playing an audio recording over the phone.
Our Grand Master is a Buddha. How could He speak over the phone to say, “Even I trust your master. How can you not trust your master?” If our Buddha Grand Master gave a decree of dharma, everyone would obey. How would He make such low-level statements of trusting or not trusting? In the recorded dharma lessons, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III often requested us to use the 128 evil views and erroneous views to check any person. How could such a statement that is different from checking with the 128 evil views and erroneous views be given? We cannot keep us from having great doubt.
Most importantly, this news caused many people to not know what is true and what is false. It was transmitted from one person to ten, from ten to one hundred, and from one hundred to one thousand. We are all confused and cannot tell whether it was true or false. Therefore, can the Office let us all know whether H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III called this master over the phone or not?
