All cultivators and all honored guests,

The auspicious and magnificent moment that involves your perfect good fortune and wisdom, liberation, and accomplishment has now arrived!

More than twenty years has passed since H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III expounded the dharma Expounding the Absolute Truth Through the Heart Sutra. The karmic conditions have finally matured. At this time and this moment of this year, this dharma has now met with the seven types of cultivators. This supreme treasure scripture of Buddha-dharma will absolutely bring you all perfect good fortune and wisdom, liberation, and accomplishment, will bring auspiciousness and prosperity to humanity, and will make holy realms more splendid and brilliant, continuously accomplish holy ones day and night, and generally benefit living beings in the six realms. The dharma’s beneficial effects to sentient beings in the three spheres will shock the entire dharma realm.

Many eminent monks and great rinpoches at our United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters (UIWBAH) have read a great many volumes of sutras and commentaries. Though still deeply feeling ashamed, we already gained the knowledge and learning from the Buddha’s teaching. Many of us entered deeply into the Tripitaka, have vast wisdom, and are perfectly proficient in both exoteric and esoteric Buddhism. I myself have been studying sutras and commentaries in the Tripitaka all the time during the last several decades. We all have this same view: This truly supreme treasure book of Buddha-dharma presented the true such-ness of dharma nature and the principles and characteristics of prajna in their entirety and in amazingly perfect refinement, conciseness, and simplicity. This book is unprecedented by any scripture or commentary written by ancient holy ones.

I can announce to the public here today. This is the supremely unsurpassable and sole dharma treasure that perfectly and coherently harmonized the aspects of cultivation and dharma practice, principles of precepts, true emptiness and wonderful existence, pursuing perfect good fortune and wisdom, and attaining liberation and accomplishment into one entity. I do not have enough words to praise, and can only prostrate to express my total admiration. I wish that you all can learn and cultivate in accord with Expounding the Absolute Truth Through the Heart Sutra earnestly, to attain the holy fruit of perfect enlightenment early.

Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!

Namo Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva!
