“Only the Examination in the Holy Realm Can Get to the Truth”
There are many people in the Buddhist world who are fond of making and telling stories. For instance, they love to boast that a so-and-so master is a holy virtuous one. On the other hand, they may also give examples to say that another master is not a good person. From ancient time to now, matters of rights and wrongs never ceased for a second in the world of living beings. Anyone will encounter two kinds of comments regardless of whether this person is a good one or a bad one. Some will say he is good and some others will say he is bad. Holy ones and charlatans will all be commented and talked about in the same manner. A charlatan has people making good propaganda for him regardless of how bad he is. A holy person can be slandered by some people as very bad no matter how good he actually is. Of course, a holy person will be praised by some people as a holy one. Each type of comments and opinions will always say that they have the correct reason and evidence. As a result, it is difficult for the public to tell what is true and what is false. Such matters of rights and wrongs are mainly due to people’s sectarian views.
Ordinary people absolutely have no way to see correctly who is good and who is bad. That is why there is a saying that winners are decorated as kings and losers are regarded as bandits. The same was true in perceiving who is holy and who is mundane. Because of this situation, our United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters (UIWBAH) implemented the written test and the examination in the holy realm that has the accuracy of one-hundred-percent.
In accord with the dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, “A master must go through an examination based on sutras, vinayas, and shastras,” UIWBAH set up the written test with one hundred problems from sutras, vinayas, and shastras.
The determination regarding the magnitude of accomplishment and whether he or she is upright or evil for a master can only be made definitively by Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in space. The examination in the holy realm is presided by Wang Zha Shang Zun, with Mo Zhi Jiao Zun, Dharma King Gar Tongstan, and Kai Chu Ru Zun serving as deputy holy proctors. After the seven masters and ten witnesses practiced the dharma, the divining pieces are given to the candidate taking the examination to drop privately to receive the divine forecast by Manjushri Bodhisattva. Then, the candidate enters the Eight Winds Battle Position to demonstrate his/her cultivated abilities and accomplishment from practice. One has to break through the destination zone to walk into the land of safety to pass a certain grade level which will be indicated by the corresponding buttons on one’s dharma attire. The grade level each examination taker earned from breaking through the battle position agrees with the forecasted grade level by dropping divine pieces with a one-hundred-percent accuracy. Until now, more than 200 people have entered the examination in the holy realm, and there has not been even one disagreement in a candidate’s grade level between that determined from breaking the battle position and the prediction by the divination. Everyone has the perfect agreement between the grade level passed in the examination in the holy realm and the grade level forecasted by divination. All examination takers are wholeheartedly convinced by the results. That is why we at UIWBAH say that only Buddhas and Bodhisattvas can determine with a one-hundred-percent certainty and by definitive nature whether one is holy or mundane, is upright or evil, and is a good person or a bad person.
On the other hand, speeches and comments from ordinary people regarding whether one is good or bad or whether something is right or wrong cannot be used as a standard, because ordinary people are unable to distinguish what is true and what is false. We can mention some examples in history to help you understand this fact. For instance, people in Taiwan 30 years ago said that Chiang Kai-Shek was good and he gave people there a happy and satisfying life. They also said that the mainland was not good and people there were extremely poor and lived in a total misery. On the other hand, statements made by the mainland said that people in Taiwan did not have food and clothing and that they had to send airplanes to drop food to the Kinmen Island for hunger relief. How can you tell who was telling the truth from listening? Also, the conduct and deeds of Dharma Master Kui Ji (also known as Kueiji), Master Marpa, and Master Milerapa once met with unfavorable comments and opinions. What happened later? They were all great holy virtuous one!!
Therefore, to observe and know the magnitude of accomplishment of a master and whether he or she is upright or evil and is good or bad, we must see the dharma attire that he or she wears that indicates the grade level received from the examination in the holy realm. We should also use the 128 views from the dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III to verify and validate this master. On the other hand, we should not believe words spread by people in the world because ordinary people have no ability to observe and see one’s inner fundamental nature.
