The holy and virtuous ones of the same level, who hold certificates of the same holiness level, can have totally different actual content levels of accomplishment! The difference primary lies between the holy and virtuous ones who passed the test on only a single item and the holy and virtuous ones who passed the test on their overall quality. The ones who passed the test on a single item have accomplished in an item of virtue, and the ones who passed the test on the overall quality have accomplished in the overall quality of virtue…
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III also very harshly criticized us and said: “Many of the holy and virtuous ones who have passed your selection are not even as good as a good person who does not practice cultivation but they are actually elated. It is clear that they are nothing but feathery chicks, but they thought themselves to be rocs in the clouds. It is all because you guys have not done strict enough checking and have lowered the standard by a great amount. The holiness levels you have listed were vague and there are not titles for positioning them. You only addressed the issue halfway. It is easy to mislead people that way.
Regarding the article titled “factually recording a dream” written by Songjie Rinpoche on June 19, some people thought it was a lie. They asked the United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters to verify the truth.
For people who have obtained the same level from the test, are their levels of merit and Dharma capabilities all equal? Many people came to ask the United International World Buddhism Association this question. They think Level 2 is higher than Level 1, and Level 3 is higher than Level 2. In fact, there is a gray area in there.
You may think one who has the ability to apply power externally must be a great holy being, but actually that person may be totally clueless about Buddhism.
the Buddhist test on holiness levels held by our United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters does not only test the candidate on Tripitaka and correct vs. evil views and understanding, but also requires the candidate to pass the holy test, which is a test performed according to the Rituals of Beseeched Vinaya Articles to be Applied in the Holy Test that is used specifically for selecting holy and virtuous ones.
