This announcement that is being disseminated contains the great dharma of zen (dhyana in Sanskrit but generally known as zen) practice that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III taught a group of cultivators in March of 2013 in the Hall of the Three Holy Ones at Bodhi Monastery in the United States. Today is December 4, 2013. We now for the first time formally publish this great dharma on the internet.
In this Saha World of ours, through the thousands of years since Namo Sakyamuni Buddha entered parinirvana, Buddha Dharma has become fragmented and broken in the current dharma-ending age. At the same time, swindlers and evil masters abound in the human world. They are impostors who pretend to be holy and expound the dharma carelessly. They mislead and even cruelly hurt the disciples. In the meantime, living beings keep going through samsara, dwelling in the sea of suffering from the six realms. They need true and correct Buddha Dharma to be their guide which they can rely on. Without true and correct Buddha Dharma, it is extremely difficult for them to be liberated from the sufferings of death and rebirth.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the true incarnation of the primordial Buddha who descends to our world. With an immeasurable mind of great kindness and compassion, He comes to the Saha world and turns the Dharma Wheel at all times to save all living beings. His impartation of Buddha Dharma is one and the same as the impartation of Dharma by all the Buddhas in the ten directions, which is the true Dharma of Tathagata. It is the crown jewel of Dharma that is so extremely precious and difficult to encounter in millions of eons. Using contemporary language, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III imparts Buddha Dharma in the most easily understood way while expounding its profound meanings. He thoroughly and clearly explains the pith of Buddha Dharma and points out a bright path to liberation for living beings.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the first Tremendously Holy One in history who does not accept any offering. He imparts Dharma only because of His great compassion towards living beings. He does not want anything in return.
The World Buddhism Association Headquarters has organized several Dharma impartation discourses by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III into text and published them on this web page to benefit all the pious Buddhist disciples for them to practice and learn. As the karmic conditions ripen in the future, more and more Dharma discourses by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III will be placed here.
We wish all Buddhist disciples to respectfully and piously come to learn and practice the true Dharma of Tathagata from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and receive great benefits!
