Various types of nectar have descended at holy events as reported in the articles listed below. Sometimes the nectar appears as needle like forms, sometime like fluffy snowflakes. Sometimes it is fragrant and tastes sweet, sometime it does not. Different people see, taste, feel, and smell different things according to their level of realization. Some experience nothing. It is very magical. It was first reported in China when it appeared at the opening of the Master Wan Ko Yee (H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III) Museum. It was first seen in America in southern California where His Holiness Dorje Chang Buddha was sitting. The tree that the nectar descended through was carefully crated and shipped to San Francisco and installed in the courtyard at Hua Zang Si. Nectar has continued to manifest through and around that tree on special holy events.
