World Buddhism Association Headquarters received an inquiry. It says: “, in the article titled Let’s question Chen Baosheng by Jianping, it mentioned that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s Dharma protectors are Ekajati Vajra, Rahula the Dharma Protector, and Mahakala the Chief Dharma Protector.” For that, we specially beseeched the answer from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said: “This Buddhist does not know it. Dharma Protector Mahakala, Dharma Protector Rahula, and Dharma Protector Ekajati are the three most potent Dharma protectors in Tibetan Buddhism. I am no in Tibetan Buddhism, nor am I in any sect. I am in Buddhism, the Buddhism of Shakyamuni Buddha, and the Buddhas in the ten directions.
My Dharma protector is not to fall in the 128 evil and erroneous views. The practice I keep is the two main mind essences of the Supreme and Unsurpassed Mahamudra of Liberation as well as What is Cultivation. My truth is Expounding the Absolute Truth Through Heart Sutra. My vows are not to receive any offerings throughout my life and to impart the true Dharma of Tathagata that is common to all Buddhas in the ten directions for living beings’ happiness and liberation voluntarily.
I will not hurt any single living being, including Chen Baosheng and Chen Rao Zhenzhen. I made a vow yesterday, which was not something I wanted to do. It was Jiangjia Rinpoche who wished to make the vow. I tried to stop him, but he wouldn’t listen. He had already set out making the vow before I felt I had no other choice but to make this vow to guarantee to the Buddhas in the ten directions and causality so that Jiangjia Rinpoche would not have any fear.
The words I am saying are the same as always. The happiness, liberation, and achievement of all living beings, including those who attack, slander, and destroy me, are the biggest happiness of mine.
A Buddhist, however, cannot at any rate slander the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in the ten directions or Shakyamuni Buddha’s sutras. A Buddhist absolutely cannot practice evil ways to mislead or hurt people.
Regarding the test on guru’s qualifications, I have always only agreed with the Written Test on Tripitaka, i.e., the Sutra, Vinaya, and Abhidharma. I always go against the so-called holy exam from the beginning. That is why I have never administered any holy exam at all.”
