If a master has not passed the test to get the level but call themselves a holy being, no matter how great a dharma king, venerable, great rinpoche, or great dharma master they may be, they are an impostor who pretends to be a Buddhist. They are just a piece of scrap metal and not gold!
Some people asked: Would the master presiding over the test intentionally give some people who only pass the test for lower levels the robe and certification of a higher level? Can the robe really ascertain someone’s level for 100%? This kind of inquiry is due to not understanding the rules and the test and the live situation at the test site. You should understand that the holy and virtuous gurus’ Buddha Dharma at the headquarters is not like what those who have not obtained true transmissions and could only talk in empty theories and unrealizable dharma have. It is the Buddha Dharma truly transmitted from Shakyamuni Buddha and can manifest itself in a holy state in which its form is true and tangible.
