Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!

Namo Sakyamuni Buddha!

All reputed leaders of Buddhist organizations! Auspicious and wish-fulfilling greetings to you all!

Today is a day filled with the joy of Buddha-dharma. You all came to attend “the H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Grand Dharma Assembly” and “the Assembly Celebrating the First-Publishing of Expounding the Absolute Truth Through the Heart Sutra.” This is a great happy event with magnificent karmic conditions that are difficult to encounter even in millions of eons. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the only Buddha with the supreme, non-differentiating, and perfect enlightenment in today’s world. The enlightenment of a Buddha is certainly not something that is determined by us human beings. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has the enlightenment of a Buddha due to His perfect proficiency in both exoteric and esoteric Buddhism, His wondrous mastery of the Five Vidyas, and His accomplishments based on holy realization, which no ancient saint has matched. These manifest the enlightenment of a Buddha. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III possesses such enlightenment and would be a Buddha even if He were not designated as such. Since the time of Sakyamuni Buddha–the leader of Buddhism in the earthly realm–became a Buddha in this world, there has not been a second Buddha who has descended to this earthly realm other than H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, the Holiest One in our world today.

Since the Buddha cannot be determined by human actions, of course the Buddha cannot be slandered by human actions either, because the Buddha is the manifestation of the enlightenment inherently possessed by the Buddha. However, according to the process of recognition of reincarnated holy ones followed by Tibetan Buddhism in the world, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is also the only Buddha who received the most recognitions and congratulations from the leaders, regent leaders, and great rinpoches of all major sects of Buddhism. There is not another Buddha. The recognitions, corroborate recognitions, and congratulations from them are in accord with the law of cause and effect. If H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III were not a Buddha, where else is a Buddha to speak of? This is because, from ancient time to now in this world, there has never been anyone who has accomplishments that can be comparable to the accomplishments of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III that are all true and real. More importantly, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s Buddha title was also conclusively defined by the legislation and government of the United States of America. In particular, the government of Washington, DC also declared the world’s only day of Buddha — HIS HOLINESS DORJE CHANG BUDDHA III DAY. At the same time, the United States Postal Service and the Sino-American Philatelic Center issued a commemorative first-day cover to congratulate His Holiness the Buddha.

Today, the United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters (UIWBAH) hereby seriously and solemnly declares: Our organization boundlessly respects and revers H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, who truly and in reality possesses the perfect nature of enlightenment of a Buddha, respects and revers the legitimate decision made by the law and government of the United States of America, and respects and revers the recognitions, corroborating recognitions, and congratulations from the dharma kings, regent dharma kings, and great rinpoches who recognized H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. We firmly oppose   evil knowledge and views, oppose the demonic speeches and evil dogmas of slandering the Buddha, and oppose the swindlers who fake being Buddhas and Bodhisattvas but do not possess the realization of a Buddha or a Bodhisattva. Today, at this dharma assembly, the dharma expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, Expounding the Absolute Truth Through the Heart Sutra, will be published for the first time. This book by the Buddha is the supreme and unsurpassable treasure of Buddha-dharma. This is the true dharma of the Tathagata that brings to living beings perfect good fortune and wisdom, accomplishment, and liberation.

To prevent slandering from demonic evildoers, we UIWBAH also agreed to display and worship at today’s dharma assembly, two photos of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III taken on October 18, 2012. The first one has an image of His Holiness the Buddha bearing the suffering on behalf of living beings with an aged appearance of vicissitudes of 70 to 80 years old. The second photo was taken only about 10 minutes later, in which the aged appearance totally disappeared and was replaced with an extremely solemn and majestic image of a young man of about 20 years old. These two contrasting photos are provided for you to pay homage to while witnessing the true facts for the purpose of benefiting living beings.

We once again remind all kind cultivators for your special attention and seriousness, if and when evildoers slander H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and this holy sutra, you all as true Buddhist disciples should stand up to protect the dharma and to help them change for the better. As a Buddhist disciple, if you do not protect the dharma and do not help them, you are already going along the wrong path of false cultivation. The sole purpose of helping them, benefiting them, and even using the form of criticism to teach and transform them is to apply bodhicitta to benefit them. This is to prevent them from committing sins and creating dark karmas that will cause the consequence of descending into the three lower realms or even the hell of uninterrupted suffering. We do not wish to see anyone meet ferocious retributions. We only hope that all living beings are able to learn the true dharma of The Tathagata to attain enlightenment early and through enlightening oneself as well as others benefit sentient beings in the three spheres and the six realms.

Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!

Namo Sakyamuni Buddha!
