SAN FRANCISCO: Many auspicious events occurred in conjunction with the ceremonies at Hua Zang Si sponsored by the International Buddhism Sangha Association to formally and respectfully receive the book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. A few days before the ceremony and immediately after the banner informing the public of the ceremony was installed over the entrance to Hua Zang Si, many witnessed a magnificent Buddha light. The light could be seen as far away as Davis, California–85 miles away. Immediately after the ceremony the holy magnolia tree in the courtyard of the temple that had manifested nectar in 2002 while H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III sat beneath it started raining nectar again. The courtyard is fairly small and the crowd was quite large. It would seem that not everyone would be able to experience this holy event. However, a second tree in front of the temple also began manifesting rain so as to allow even more of the thousand or so participants to experience its blessings. The nectar continued to fall for two days and two nights to mark this auspicious occasion. A DVD was made documenting this event.
