The World Buddhism Association Headquarters is a non-profit religious organization lawfully established in the United States of America.
Since Sakyamuni Buddha, the Lord of Buddhism in the Saha World, established Buddhism in our world over 2500 years ago, much of the Buddha’s teachings and Dharma were recorded and kept in various forms till now, which are the Buddhist sutras as people know them. The doctrines and meanings in the Buddhist sutras are followed by Buddhists in the whole world. However, due to the differences in the lineage of teaching by the patriarchs from different sects, as well as the errors created when Buddhist sutras were translated to other languages, some of the doctrines and meanings of Buddhism passed down today have deviated from the teachings of Namo Sakyamuni Buddha and all Buddhas in the ten directions in terms of the understanding and views as well as the ways to practice and learn them.
Fortunately, Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is now abiding in the Saha world, the world of ours. Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is of great loving-kindness and great compassion. He is benevolent, kind, and moral. He is the only one in the world who is recognized as a Buddha by the leaders and great rinpoches of all the major Buddhist sects, and the only one who has received the most and the highest recognition as a Buddha. Moreover, the achievements in the Five Vidyas by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III are the highest and the most perfect in the entire Buddhist history.
Therefore, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the highest Buddhist leader in our world. The dharma discourses imparted by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III have spread over the whole world and are being learned in the whole world. The dharma discourses by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III do not only reveal the absolute truth of the universe and explain the correct meanings and principles at the various stages of Buddhist practice, from the elementary and fundamental to the profound and accomplished but also correct the doctrines of the dharma that are distorted by generations of patriarchs and translations. Furthermore, they point out and uncover the chaos in the dharma-ending era of Buddhism. Those listening to the dharma discourses can therefore develop their wisdom and grow their good fortune; they can help and love each other and be compassionate to all the people.
The World Buddhism Association Headquarters spreads the teachings and dharma discourses by Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and by Sakyamuni Buddha to all Buddhist believers and bring the deviating and erroneous views back to their original correct positions of Buddhism. Abiding by the Buddha’s teachings and based on great compassion, the World Buddhism Association Headquarters mainly hopes to benefit people and to dedicate itself altruistically to people. It hopes that all people in America and the world receive the benefit from Buddha Dharma; that they love their countries, their people, and the world; that they help each other, be full of peace, kindness, and auspice, and that the country is strong, people are prosperous, and everyone is full of joy and happiness.
The World Buddhism Association Headquarters now has over twenty thousand branches developed in the entire world, each having its respective special religious leader. In the H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Grand Dharma Assembly held in Hong Kong in 2014, there were twenty-eight thousand organizations that attended it. In order to promote and spread Buddha’s true Dharma, the World Buddhism Association Headquarters organizes the Buddhist temples, associations, and organizations in different places all over the world to lead people to learn the teachings of Namo Sakyamuni Buddha as well as to respectfully listen to the dharma discourses imparted by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, and to teach and guide people to do good deeds and be compassionate towards living beings.
Certain days during a year are considered holy days in Buddhism, such as the holy birthdays of Sakyamuni Buddha and other Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. On such holy birthdays of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, the World Buddhism Association Headquarters holds religious and worshiping dharma assemblies, participated mainly by high monks and people of great benevolence and virtue. During the dharma assemblies, the participants worship Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, respectfully listen to the dharma discourses imparted by Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, and recite the Buddhist sutras of Namo Sakyamuni Buddha to celebrate the holy birthdays of Buddha and Bodhisattvas, to pray to Buddha and Bodhisattvas for bestowing Their blessings and protections onto the people in the United States and the world, so that their adversities are removed, the society is stable, the country of the United States is prosperous and strong, and the world is peaceful.
The World Buddhism Association Headquarters also publishes printed materials about Buddhism. These printed materials correct the chaotic phenomena in the Buddhist world; they guide those who practice Buddhism to hold correct understanding and views and lead people onto the correct path in practicing and learning Buddha Dharma.
The World Buddhism Association Headquarters holds Buddhist seminars in which the religious leaders of the various Buddhist organizations all over the world, leading their people who practice Buddhism, exchange their knowledge gained and their understanding of Buddha Dharma. Doing so helps those who practice Buddhism to tangibly put the teachings by Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and Namo Sakyamuni Buddha in their daily lives, to be able to more practically analyze the erroneous understanding and views of those who cultivate themselves, and to correct their own words and deeds according to the teachings of the Buddha.
By way of these various events, the World Buddhism Association Headquarters hopes that all who practice Buddhism can grow their wisdom and good fortune and then obtain bliss and happiness. Our common goal is to promote and spread Buddha Dharma that is of the correct understanding and views based on Buddha’s teachings, to help the people in the United States and the world, to cause the societies to be peaceful and harmonious and the country of the United States prosperous and strong, and then to benefit the whole humankind and bring peace to the entire world!
