There is a holy and amazing “Vajra Pill.” This wonderful “pill,” is used in very high initiations. If the disciple has sufficient merit, he or she will then be able to take the pill and obtain supernormal powers that can be used to help other living beings. These powers can manifest within twenty-four hours of taking the pill. These powers cannot be used openly, in a frivolous manner, or for personal gain. The disciple’s merit must be very high to receive this empowerment. This empowerment can greatly assist disciples in their quest for enlightenment. There is a report by Zhaxi Zhuoma Rinpoche on such a pill in H. H. Dorje Chang Buddha III: This book also contains a report on these magical pills multiplying during a Dharma Assembly. The Rinpoche reports that she has seen this pill move freely in her hand, then turn into light and fly away. She also reports that she has heard the pill chant mantras and dance. Other disciples have experienced other amazing things with these pills.
In 2007, at a Dharma Assembly at the Master Wan Ko Yee Cultural Institute in Alhambra, CA, the rinpoche distributed Vajra pills to the hundreds of disciples who had gathered there. Many of the disciples who took the pills reported life-changing events that happened afterwards.
In 2003 Zhaxi Zhuoma received two true red holy vajra pills. Unexpectedly the Vajra Pills in her hand started to jump. At that time the Vajra Pills jumped in her hand just as if they were alive. They not only jumped but one of them started to circle around and left her hand. It transformed into a dazzling bright colored light and soared into the sky. The rinpoche understood that her merit was not sufficient at that time for her to keep that pill and that it had gone to a Buddha Land or holy place for safe keeping and, when conditions were right, it would reappear, but at the time no one knew where that was or when that would happen. This is reported in the treasure book H. H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.
In the fall of 2010, certain metal poles began shaking violently at the Xuanfa Institute. This was a sign of the true nature of this site. The Xuanfa Institute is the Holy Site where the vajra pill flew. The pill was to merge with these Vajra Poles to become one and empower the site as the first Vajra Throne in the West and the fourth one in the world.
That pill has manifested at the Xuanfa Institute near Sanger, California. There is a DVD of Zhaxi Zhuoma Rinpoche activating the holy pill and inviting the Holy Dharma Protector to empower the pill, which happened. The pill danced first in the rinpoche’s hand and then in the crystal pagoda held by the rinpoche. It pulsated inside the pagoda as if it was alive. It looked as though it was actually breathing. During this empowerment ceremony and a subsequent ceremony to empower certain objects, a green light flashed. Green Tara had entered the mandala to bless the pill and the event.
A video was also made of the temporary installation of this holy vajra pill in the Protector Chapel at the Xuanfa Institute. At that time a very mysterious and shimmering light filled the area behind the Institute. It was filled with brightly colored diamond shaped light forms that hovered and moved around the area. These same diamond shaped forms had appeared on photos taken in Santa Fe, New Mexico while Zhaxi Zhuoma was touring the USA to introduce her Buddha Master to the American people. The first time was in front of the state capitol on a Hopi sculpture entitled “Window to the Spirit World” and the second was around a small stupa that had been erected by H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, the Supreme Leader of the Nyingma Sect, and consecrated by H.H. Dodrupchen Rinpoche to mark the coming to America of Tibetan Buddhism. This was a very special site that matched the description given by Guru Padmasambhava in his prophecy that “when iron birds fly and horses run on wheels the Tibetans would be scattered like ants all over the world and the dharma would go to the land of the redman.”
The ability to make the vajra pill move about is one of the ways that rinpoches are tested to determine their level of realization and accomplishment.
