Synopsis of Answer No. 1:
Venerable Mozhi replies in person to the six questions addressed to him:
He does not have the status of a great holy virtuous one.
He has not realized the accomplishment of Gold Button Level 3 or as a non-retrograde Bodhisattva yet.
He is not able to confer inner-tantric initiations to disciples but can perform a borrowed inner-tantric initiation.
He does not accept disciples.
It is he who demonstrated the power that burnt many high monks and virtuous ones with tummo fire in the video recording titled “Manifestation of Genuine Buddha-Dharma That Is Difficult to See Even in One Thousand Years.”
On that day, there was a person with the title of rinpoche who feared the embarrassment of being injured by the burn and thus dared not enter the field.
Synopsis of Answer No. 2:
To receive an inner-tantric initiation, one must pass two checkpoints, neither of which can be skipped. Getting the agreement from the master conferring the initiation is just passing the first checkpoint. However, if you should have any doubt or speak falsely to the master conferring the inner-tantric initiation, you have committed an offense to the fundamental precepts. The Yidam, who is a Buddha or a Bodhisattva, will not agree to confer the initiation and transmit the Dharma to you at the second checkpoint. Even if the initiation is performed forcefully, there will not be any beneficial effect at all.
Synopsis of Answer No. 3:
The effect of an inner-tantric initiation is to invite a Buddha or a Bodhisattva to come to the mandala to accept the disciple!! The disciple must be a person who is very pious and has made real contributions to the Buddhist undertakings!!! Only such a disciple can meet the requirement to receive the initiation. If one presents offerings to a tremendously holy virtuous one with the utmost piousness, one can receive the First-Class Initiation of Dharma Affinity with the Yidam; one can also receive the Utmost Precious Holy Amrit to exterminate one’s hindrances. Within 12 hours, this disciple will see in person the Buddha or Bodhisattva in space and learn supreme great Dharma to transform from an ordinary being to a holy one immediately. This answer also mentioned an example of actual realization seen by many people. For details, please see the full text of Answer No. 3.
Synopsis of Answer No. 4:
This answer points out that the best cultivation and dharma practice in this world is the cultivation and dharma practice expounded by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, such as the cultivation and dharma practice in the Supreme and Unsurpassable Mahamudra of Liberation. There are very many eminent monastics and greatly virtuous ones that can be concretely named who have attained liberation through learning and practicing the Buddha-dharma of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. No one else can hold the candle. That is the guarantee for your accomplishment and liberation.
Synopsis of Answer No. 5:
This answer expressed clearly that the view of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is that all sects and schools are equal, and each has its own specialty. The key to learning from Buddha is to abstain from doing all that is evil, to do all that is good, and to cultivate and conduct oneself according to Buddha’s teachings. Once the great compassion and good nature are established, one can learn great Buddha Dharma and attain accomplishment quickly and expediently. Why do holy virtuous ones emphasize dharmic stipulations of the inner-tantric initiations? One reason is to prevent cultivators from following evil masters and charlatans. More importantly, only an inner-tantric initiation can enable the disciple to timely reach and communicate with the Yidam, who is a Buddha or a Bodhisattva. If the initiation is a State Practice Initiation of the Seed of Holy Cause, the disciple will see Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in space right then and can enter the world of a holy state at any time later.
Synopsis of Answer No. 6:
In any lineage of the true Dharma of the Tathagata, there are always traitors. Because the mission of true Buddha Dharma is benefiting living beings, leading living beings to attain holiness, and forbidding deceiving people with evil intentions, it does not agree with the evil masters and charlatans whose purpose is to defraud people for money and sex through transmitting false Buddha-dharma. Because true Buddha Dharma thwarts these charlatans from getting money and sex, they will, of course, oppose it. Therefore, to continue their way of fraud, they will definitely take the only choice that is betrayal.
Synopsis of Answer No. 7:
On what is manifest such as the opening of the crown or the initial state of Xianliang Great Perfection, the “initiation of state practice” and the “empowerment of state practice” seem similar, but they are completely different in nature. In the initiation, the Buddha or Bodhisattva accepts the disciple in person, while in the empowerment, the Buddha or Bodhisattva just bestows empowerment but does not accept the disciple. Additionally, some people take the manifest phenomenon of receiving the empowerment from a Tremendously Holy Virtuous One to fake as receiving an initiation to their disciples. They can even be so wicked as to deceive their disciples by saying that it was due to their own realization and dharmic power. There are very many people of this kind. They are all ordinary beings plus charlatans. Please inquire at the Headquarters, and you will know the specifics right away.
Synopsis of Answer No. 8:
Some masters deceivingly claim to be able to confer an inner-tantric initiation for his disciples, having received an initiation or empowerment from a great holy master themselves. Attention: anyone who has received an inner-tantric initiation must have a Measuring Vajra Rope. Without this object of evidence, it may just be inner-tantric empowerment or only deceit. To find out what qualifications an individual person possesses, please inquire at the World Buddhism Association Headquarters. No false claim can survive since the complete records exist.
Synopsis of Answer No. 9:
What is “Presenting the Three Vajra Pestles”? The three pestles are the “Earth Pestle” that requires a person whose age is around 60 and whose body weight is about 170 pounds to single-handedly present the Earth Pestle weighing 200 pounds; the “Heaven Pestle” that weighs 110 pounds; and the “Dharma Pestle” that is to be presented by one’s internal power. Both the “Heaven Pestle” and the “Earth Pestle” test and verify one’s physical strength and physical health. Suppose someone weighs 170 pounds. If the person’s age is around 50, the weight of the “Earth Pestle” to be presented is 210 pounds. If the person’s age is approximately 40, the weight of the “Earth Pestle” to be presented is 220 pounds. If the person’s age is around 30, the weight of the “Earth Pestle” to be presented is 230 pounds. If the person’s age is about 20, the weight of the “Earth Pestle” to be presented is 240 pounds. If one’s body weight exceeds 170 pounds, for every additional pound of body weight, a pound should be added to the weight requirement of the “Earth Pestle.” Regarding why “Presenting the Three Vajra Pestles” and “Presenting a Petition to a Bodhisattva” are the rigorous stipulations of Dharma required by an inner-tantric mandala, please consult the original text of the answer.
Synopsis of Answer No. 10:
An inner-tantric mandala will become an ordinary mandala and no longer possess any inner-tantric effect after the great holy virtuous one who established the mandala has entered nirvana for three years and three months. However, a Buddha hall of true Buddha-Dharma built in accord with the Dharma has no time limitation.
Synopsis of Answer No. 11:
The person demonstrating “Presenting the Three Vajra Pestles” is a great rinpoche. We are not authorized to tell you his dharma name, as you requested. He is a rinpoche who is a USA citizen.
As to whether H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has ever accepted the person you asked about as a disciple in Thailand, please see the original text.
Synopsis of Answer No. 12:
A master who can confer a borrowed inner-tantric initiation must meet all of the three major requirements!!! A holy virtuous one of Gold Button Level 3 cannot preside over an Initiation of Dharma Affinity with the Yidam but can confer a real inner-tantric initiation. However, an inner-tantric initiation must be done in a real inner-tantric mandala that has completed the practices of Impersonating the Three Vajra Pestles and Presenting a Petition to a Bodhisattva. Otherwise, the disciple will not have any beneficial effect in the dharma practice.
Synopsis of Answer No. 13:
To attain accomplishment and liberation takes three great asankhyeya kalpas (3.84 billion years). One also must broadly practice the six paramitas subsumed in the myriad of deeds. Only inner-tantric initiations enable one to attain accomplishment in seven lifetimes, in three lifetimes, or the current lifetime, or even in the present moment if one could learn the holiest Dharma. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said that as long as one genuinely practices cultivation and Dharma according to what He teaches, one can attain accomplishment in the current lifetime no matter which one is.
As of now, we have not heard of any inner-tantric mandala in the world. Wangzha Shangzun already announced last year that a genuine inner-tantric mandala would be established in the United States this year.
Synopsis of Answer No. 14:
You asked whether H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has an inner-tantric mandala. The answer is He never has one. He is a Buddha, why does He need an inner-tantric mandala? Wherever His Holiness the Buddha is present and transmitting the Dharma is an inner-tantric mandala possessing holy siddhi.
Synopsis of Answer No. 15:
Only with the realization of Gold Button Levels is a person indeed a venerable one. A Shangzun at the level of Gold Button Level 3 does not have the absolute confidence to be able to “Present a Petition to a Bodhisattva.” Only a Shangzun who is above the level of Gold Button Level 3 can definitely accomplish “Present a Petition to a Bodhisattva.” Regarding the fact that different people with entirely different accomplishments of cultivation reached the same level of the blue button(s) from the test, please see the original text of answers in the book titled Brief Synopses and Original Texts of the Answers from Holy Virtuous Ones and Eminent Monastics for details.
Regarding the question about whether the Dharma of Empowerment by Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva’s Great Compassion practiced by a so-and-so person has the lineage of true Buddha-Dharma or is it from a lineage of the descendants of the Mara King, please inquire at World Buddhism Association Headquarters. Otherwise, receiving wrong empowerment will bring one bad luck and suffering.
Synopsis of Answer No. 16:
Why would some people oppose the stipulations of the Dharma regarding an inner-tantric mandala? This is because those who resist are definitely all false holy ones and real swindlers. They have no realization of accomplishment to establish an inner-tantric mandala and can only perform fake inner-tantric initiations. They hate the stipulations of true Buddha-Dharma to their bones. If they did not immediately oppose the requirements as soon as they are presented, these people would, before their disciples, expose the fact that they always perform fake inner-tantric initiations and would be unable to cover up their nature of being swindlers. For details, please see the original text of the answer.
Synopsis of Answer No. 17:
Using various kinds of lighting and chemistry, magicians can create an earth-quake or something. They can make an airplane or automobile vanish or appear. However, no great magician can ever transform a sheet of paper with the disciple’s writings into rainbow light. “Presenting a Petition to a Bodhisattva” can only be accomplished by a master who is a Bodhisattva with the status of a tremendously holy virtuous one. “Sending a petition” is to put the document of the petition before the crowd. Without using fire, the Bodhisattva will come from space to the site to take the petition, which will transform into a rainbow and fly away. On the other hand, “burning a petition” is to burn the petition by flame. Any person can do that.
Synopsis of Answer No. 18:
One who has the realization of accomplishment of Gold Button Level 1 or Gold Button Level 2 is still at risk of receding from the attained accomplishment. The original text of Answer No. 18 has real examples to explain this fact.
Synopsis of Answer No. 19:
To perform a borrowed inner-tantric initiation entails at least three disciples receiving the initiation. The “Measuring Vajra Rope” used in the initiation will be cut into sections according to the number of people and distributed among them. The Vajra pill will also be ground into powders to be divided among them. A real inner-tantric initiation received by a single person will have a “Measuring Vajra Rope” with a length between 16.5 feet and 33 feet. If the disciple receiving the initiation does not possess a “Measuring Vajra Rope,” the initiation is not a real inner-tantric initiation. The distance between the master and the disciple is measured using the length of this rope, which must not be less than 16.5 feet. If you want to find out whether the rope possessed by a particular person is real or forged, please inquire at the World Buddhism Association Headquarters.
Synopsis of Answer No. 20:
Although a Vajra pill is hard and very small, the pill’s interior is a Vajra mandala. After the Inner-tantric Yidam enters this mandala, the pill will change its size and height, can perform an acrobatic skating dance, and will manifest miraculous transformations.
Synopsis of Answer No. 21:
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has never accepted offerings. The key to whether one can learn Buddha-dharma or not is in whether one truly has a pious mind. One who makes a false vow will not be approved by the yidam Bodhisattva and cannot attain accomplishment even if the Dharma is taught to such a person. There is a person who usurped the capital and resources of the Buddhist undertaking “Fa-bi-Sheng” for 30 years, but H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III never asked for anything in return from her. Such a significant matter never seems to have occurred to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, physically or mentally.
Separately, a holy virtuous one who can only confer a borrowed inner-tantric initiation is not a non-receding Bodhisattva. It is possible such a person recedes from his achievement.
Synopsis of Answer No. 22:
The thin, white facial light between the eyebrows that represents one of the thirty-two major elegant marks of a Buddha cannot be seen by those who do not possess the karmic condition or speak falsely to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, who are insincere and have told lies to a Buddha, who are extremely selfish, who have violated solemn precepts; who are not kind in mind, who are demonic persons or evil ghosts and monsters, and who do not sincerely learn from Buddha to cultivate themselves. In December last year (2017), H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III manifested His real facial appearance of a Buddha. The scene was seen by more than 70% of the people present with their own eyes. The observation by each of them was different. What some saw was the utmost and penetratingly transparent red complexion with embodied beauty resembling a red coral, while to some others, it was like a brilliant sun, emitting radiance that kept their eyes from opening. As to the thin white light between the eyebrows of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, they saw different types of miraculous transformations. Some people saw H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III manifesting two completely different appearances within a few minutes. Others did not see anything. The definitions of the thirty-two major elegant marks of a Buddha are not fixed. This is because Buddhas respond to karmic conditions and manifest according to the species of living beings to save them. The views seen by people can be different.
Synopsis of Answer No. 23:
The “Buddha-bestowed holy Amrit” can only be given by an Equal Enlightenment Bodhisattva, a Marvelous Enlightenment Bodhisattva, or a Buddha. A Great Bodhisattva can, at most, give Amrit through trees or flowers. The difference between Amrit through trees or flowers and the “Buddha-bestowed holy Amrit” is like heaven and earth. Amrit has different types and different holy empowerment, such as:
Initiation by the Utmost Precious Holy Amrit can enable one to attain the accomplishment to become a great holy person on the spot, realizing the state of nirvana with complete awareness.
If one can abide by the precepts in one’s cultivation and practice without violating the precepts in the Amrit Protection Longevity Mantra, the Initiation of the Great Precious Amrit can expand one’s lifespan to 125 years. It can enable one to attain accomplishment and liberation in 12 years and realize the state of nirvana with complete awareness.
Initiation by the Bodhi Amrit will enable one to attain accomplishment and liberation in 20 years, with a lifespan of 125 years. However, one must abide by the precepts in the Amrit Protection Longevity Mantra. If any violation is committed, one must sincerely repent and correct within 15 days. Otherwise, the Amrit and its effect will be lost without a trace.
Initiation with the sprinkling of the Bodhi Amrit has only 5% of the effect.
Amrit pills have only 2% of the effect.
Synopsis of Answer No. 24:
One who can “Establish a Mandala through a Separation by a Slab of Stone” or “Forecast the Future” is a true non-receding tremendously holy virtuous one and has already possessed the cultivated accomplishment of “Presenting a Petition to a Bodhisattva.”
Synopsis of Answer No. 25:
The “Fine Horse Walking Dharma” is initial-stage holy Dharma. One who practices this Dharma is unable to establish an inner-tantric mandala. One must reach Gold Button Level 3 or above to be able to do that. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III expounded the Dharma to tell us that only cultivation is fundamentally essential. If you want to beseech this Dharma, find other great holy virtuous ones somewhere else.
Synopsis of Answer No. 26:
Venerable Mozhi, who is at the level of Gold Lotus Button, is still unable to establish an Inner-tantric Mandala and can only confer a Borrowed Inner-tantric Initiation. Those famous figures you mentioned are only at the levels of the blue button(s) and possess no accomplishment of realization to establish an Inner-tantric Mandala at all. They cannot perform Inner-tantric Initiations either.
Synopsis of Answer No. 27:
Those masters who teach people must submerge themselves deeply in the sutras and understand the principles of the teachings and the essence of the Dharma. Otherwise, they will inevitably lead people to enter evil gates and descend in the lower realms. This is because they are false masters and complete outsiders to Buddhism.
Synopsis of Answer No. 28:
A venerable title doesn’t imply the person is a venerable one. One must be at the Gold Button level to be a venerable one. A venerable one wearing a lotus button is a truly venerable one. One at Gold Button Level 3 is a Shangzun. The title refers to a great Bodhisattva who is above venerable ones. Regardless of how high one’s status may be, any master at the levels of Blue Button has not attained the realization of an Arhat and is not a holy virtuous one. Such a master can at most confer a transmitted inner-tantric initiation and cannot confer a borrowed inner-tantric initiation. Holy virtuous ones at Gold Button Level 1 or above but have not reached Gold Button Level 3 can only confer a borrowed inner-tantric initiation and cannot confer a direct inner-tantric initiation. There are also an extremely few holy persons who do not want to disclose their names or come forward to take the test for the level but are truly holy ones. Still, this type of person must have a holy realization and absolutely possess great kindness and great compassion. Additionally, with a one-hundred-percent certainty, they possess a few of the Five Vidyas. Moreover, they do not fall into the 128 Evil and Erroneous Views. Otherwise, they cannot be holy ones.
Synopsis of Answer No. 29:
A Worldly dharma-cultivation refers to the Dharma and cultivation that have not undergone a holy selection or that have undergone a holy selection, but the Yidam did not arrive to give approval. A holy dharma-cultivation, on the other hand, has been approved by Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Buddhas and Bodhisattvas only bear responsibility for the holy dharma-cultivation. If it is a holy dharma-cultivation, not one sentence can be changed, or it will immediately become a worldly dharma-cultivation and may even become evil Dharma.
Synopsis of Answer No. 30:
Why must inner-tantric initiations be performed in an inner-tantric mandala that meets the two major stipulations of the Dharma? The reason is to protect and serve cultivators who learn from Buddha and to prevent evil masters and charlatans from defrauding them. Evil masters and charlatans definitely will not be able to present the Three Vajra Pestles or accomplish Presenting a Petition to a Bodhisattva no matter how cunning they may be. Therefore, they have no realization powers to establish an inner-tantric mandala. Only a true great holy virtuous one or a Great Bodhisattva can establish an inner-tantric mandala. Moreover, only an inner-tantric initiation performed in an inner-tantric mandala can allow the disciple to receive the initiation and have beneficial effects in the dharma practice.
Synopsis of Answer No. 31:
Presenting a Petition to a Bodhisattva is, based on the content defined in the petition, to invoke at least a non-receding Bodhisattva to arrive at the site to accept the petition. The great holy master performing the Dharma will cause the petition, which is placed far away, to transform into a rainbow and fly away before the disciples. The fact the petition is taken away means the content has been accepted and thus is correct. If the petition is not taken away by the Great Bodhisattva, then it means the Bodhisattva does not approve it, and the petition is incorrect or evil.
Synopsis of Answer No. 32:
An ordinary Buddha hall is not a Buddha hall of true Buddha-dharma! A Buddha hall of true Buddha-dharma is not an inner-tantric mandala! A Buddha hall of true Buddha-dharma can only be established by a master who has received the Inner-tantric Initiation of Establishing a Buddha Hall. A professional master in building Buddha halls cannot violate the precepts. Otherwise, this master who breaks the tenets will lose the realization power of establishing Buddha halls. However, the Buddha hall(s) previously built by this master will not be affected. A master who can build a Buddha hall of true Buddha-dharma must hold and possess a three-colored Vajra rope received at the time of receiving the inner-tantric initiation on building Buddha halls of true Buddha-dharma. An inner-tantric mandala can only be established by a tremendously holy virtuous one or great holy virtuous one. Since there exists no inner-tantric mandala now, there is no way to transmit the Dharma of establishing Buddha halls.
Synopsis of Answer No. 33:
The purpose of World Buddhism Association Headquarters carrying out the tests is to help everyone tell the true from the false and the good from the evil, lest they are defrauded or deceived. False masters have the following behaviors:
They hold up the signs of great holy ones and great Bodhisattvas to commit fraud.
They demand their disciples to take oaths or curses to pledge their loyalty and do not allow them to follow other masters.
They commit severe violations against Sakyamuni Buddha’s teachings and precepts, forge false Buddha-dharma, fabricate incorrect textbooks, and harm their followers. They are as vicious as vultures or beasts.
They fake to be holy even though they are ordinary. They have neither accomplishment nor virtue; they violate ethical human relationships and snatch offerings by deceit.
They are exposed as amateurs when tested on the sutras and teachings for their answers are full of mistakes; They falsely boast having holy realization and inner-power, but in fact, there is nothing but depleted physical strength wrapped in a shell that is full of sickness. They are purely outsiders to the sutras, cultivation, or the meanings of Buddha-dharma.
Baselessly piece together and give discourses with the heretic view of nihilism to deceive and harm living beings with poisonously malicious effects.
Synopsis of Answer No. 34:
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the only Buddha recognized by dharma kings and rinpoches of all major Buddhist sects of the world in the history of Buddhism. The teachings and the dharmas imparted by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III are not the teachings and the dharmas of sect or school linked to a patriarch or a particular vehicle such as Vajrayana, Mahayana, or Hinayana. They treat all Buddhist vehicles, sects, and schools equally; They are in the same system as the teachings and dharmas of Sakyamuni Buddha and are pure and true Buddha-dharma.
Synopsis of Answer No. 35:
Cultivators must use the 128 views to check and verify all masters below but not including Gold Button Level 3.
One’s merit can genuinely be different in terms of magnitude and level. The merit from presenting an offering to or supporting a rinpoche, dharma master, or temple cannot compare to that from submitting an offering to Sakyamuni Buddha. The difference is like that between the sky and the ground. The toddler in Budapest had an extremely excellent karmic condition to present a handful of sand as an offering to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. The merit of his pure mentality and action was limitless.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is of selflessness, humility, and holy purity. He has not said one word of complaint, even the product Fabisheng, which He invented, was usurped by someone for her own gain for 30 years. His Holiness the Buddha does not pursue fame or profit and is entirely selfless and free of greed. Besides, the height of His achievements in the Five Vidyas, His bestowing the holy Amrit as a Buddha, and the 32 major elegant marks of a Buddha possessed by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III are all patent evidence that proves H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is a Buddha! His good deeds and holy feats, which are more than what many books can contain, are being compiled.
If you truly intend to read and clearly understand the specific contents, please combine with the original text of every answer in the book titled Brief Synopses and Original Texts of the Answers from Holy Virtuous Ones and Eminent Monastics.
