On Day 14 of the Lunar year
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III does not have an inner-tantric mandala. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the only Buddha in the history of Buddhism who has received the most and the highest recognition from the leaders, regent leaders, and great rinpoches of all major sects of Buddhism. We have carefully examined the Buddhist history of recognition, and there is no one else that could surpass Him. If you do not believe it, please point out where the precedence is, either in the past or the present, or which holy one has reached the heights set by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III in the Five Vidyas. Indeed, no one can hold the candle.
It is not that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III cannot give inner-tantric initiations because He has no inner-tantric mandala as you thought. Instead, it is because you do not possess the qualification to receive a real Inner-tantric Initiation. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is a Buddha and therefore does not need an inner-tantric mandala. Just as Sakyamuni Buddha, wherever His Holiness the Buddha is, wherever He is transmitting the Dharma, it is an inner-tantric mandala possessing holy siddhi.
Venerable Mozhi said, “I myself, and the Yuzun and Shengzun who are higher than me, all received true State-practice Inner-tantric Initiations of the Holy Cause Seed from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, our beneficent Buddha Master. Also, the holy virtuous Zhao Yusheng, whom people all know also received an Inner-tantric Initiation of Dharma Affinity with the Yidam conferred by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. That was exactly why Amitabha Buddha came in-person to transmit a holy Dharma to him that enabled him to realize the state of liberation from the cycle of death and rebirth and to know the time of his passing in advance. Moreover, Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva appeared in person to receive him in front of everyone.”
“I will say a few more words. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha is not a great Bodhisattva who can only give initiations in an inner-tantric mandala as stipulated by the doctrines. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is a Buddha. To Him, any place is a holy inner-tantric mandala. There have been very, very many great accomplished ones who were saved and liberated by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. They are all real people with real feats. Other than H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, who else in this world could show so many real instances? Isn’t that true?”
