H.H.第三世多杰羌佛绘画作品《向日葵》及其他艺术家作品鉴赏

梵高、齐白石PK H.H.第三世多杰羌佛,看谁的作品厉害

我在画坛度过了六十多个春秋的生涯历程中,有了这几十年的体验和实践,结识了不少名家高手,尤其是担任北京国家博物馆书画鉴定中心的总顾问,和书画评审鉴定专家以来,主要的工作是鉴定和评审东西方的画作,而所鉴定过的名画至少也有几万件了,特别是荷兰的大师梵高和东方一霸的齐白石的存世珍品。

梵高、齐白石都是世界著名的艺术大师,一个是代表西方的顶尖高手,另一个是东方画坛的特级大师;都是从各自的古典文化传统中吸取精髓,而创作新的风格和宇宙观,成为新时代和新潮流承先启后的艺术创派宗师。从他俩的作品中可以反映东、西方传统文化不同的特质。而对于梵高和齐白石的作品,能影响整个世界的艺术文明到什么程度?是怎样的境界能导致他们成为世界美术史上,挺立的丰碑而令人高山仰止呢?

绘画评论家们把梵高、齐白石两人的作品拿来互相比较孰高孰下,而结果两位各有千秋,并且都是艺术上登峰造极不败的战将。但最近又有艺术评论家们又搬出了第三世多杰羌佛的“油画向日葵”和“国画向日葵”,做出了非比寻常的一番不同评价,而将梵高、齐白石再拿来与第三世多杰羌佛的创作比较,孰高孰低谁更厉害而成为高手中之高手。梵高、齐白石和第三世多杰羌佛的作品比较结果,给了人们极大的启示。

西方艺术从文艺复兴以来强调理性分析,追求形似的传真写照。利用光线、质感和细节呈现出一个写实的立体透视空间,而数百年后到了梵高的年代,对于形似以及光线的明暗人物黑扳的反感,而开创了适合他自已的,色彩明亮、瑰丽雄劲、交错的笔触的印象主义,成一代之宗师而铭刻于西方艺术文明的丰碑里。当人们一想起梵高,就会想起他独特的个性和目光如电的眼神,满身是劲,时刻都为追求艺术的灵感而栉风沐雨。他是个天生的艺术家,而且还有点神经质,自信心非常强烈;就因为他有此特性,对他自已喜爱的艺术一往直前,而无后顾之忧,他热爱自已的作品而傲视一切,他宁可遗世独立而不屑与同时代的画家们为伍。他的作品色彩明快,笔触如风起云涌般翻腾于天空中,他所画的田园、人物、花卉、等等生动活泼,每笔都是由内心的情感转化而来,开在他丰富多彩的自画像中,和超尘脱俗的“向日葵”𥚃,灵气迫人而动人心魄。

从梵高的绘画创作精神和立意中,能寻觅到他对中国水墨画有深刻的研究和认识。正因为如此,他在用笔、造形、设色方面,施展出中锋和排笔的手法。他笔下的《圣经》以几笔排成,又如他所绘的自画像,脸上的线条和色彩,已到达超凡脱俗的境界。而这些笔触我们不难发现,他吸取中国画的养分与精髓;故梵高的作品也远胜于其他西方油画家,如塞尚、高更等同时代的画家们,脱颖而出成为绝代高手。这是与东方的中华文明与西方文艺复兴时期的古典艺术,如点彩派、德国表现主义和印象派等有着紧密相连的关系。他到最后,画到人我一体、天人合一境界时,已到了无拘束的“任自然”境界。因此他不知道还有自我的存在,而只有艺术观和宇宙观,而“任自然” 是中华文化老子哲学的精髓。他拿刀子把自己的耳朵割下来,于忘我于画的境界中,对当年社会的不公平与怨恨作出无言的反抗。

齐白石其实对印象派、野兽派、写实主义等西方绘画都有深厚的研究,取西方之精髓,融汇东方艺术的传统精神,自创一派而成为二十世纪国画大师。他落笔沉稳而力透纸背,他用羊毫笔而以书法入画,其线条刚健有力而带有婀娜多姿和力拔山兮气盖世的豪情,像铁线描般钢圆而有弹性。他的笔所到处随心所欲而自然天成,并配以如碑刻般强壮雄健流畅的书法。这种随心所欲的“任自然”的艺术思想,正是中华民族老子哲学和艺术文明的泉源;而又和梵高借鉴老子的哲学思维是一致的。齐白石在绘画中喜欢留白,而留白在黑白的中国水墨画中也定为是一种素彩,所谓墨分九色(中国古书墨分五色),这就说明了白色的纸和黑色的墨都是色彩。齐白石的作品有精密细致的一面,所画的昆虫如蚱蜢、螳螂、蝴蝶等,非常精致和色彩灿烂,而有些作品却是寥寥数笔,意到心不到的忘我境界。无论笔下所画的一切,生动活泼而跃然纸上,而灵气动人经络。 总之,他落笔胸有成竹,童心意趣浑然天成。

最近有人拿梵高和齐白石两人的作品“向日葵”与第三世多杰羌佛创作的“向日葵” 比较,看谁绘得更厉害与超群,或对后世的影响更广和深远。而我对梵高、齐白石、第三世多杰羌佛的绘画作品过目较多,正如我九岁在老师的启蒙下开始研究和鉴赏齐白石的画作,十四岁开始欣赏梵高的作品与研究,都己经数十年矣!同时,我对第三世多杰羌佛的创作神往己久。为了却我的欲望和心愿,还直接乘飞机从纽约到三藩市参观“美国国际艺术馆”和到洛杉矶欣赏“第三世多杰羌佛文化艺术馆”的珍藏。这两间艺术馆雄伟庄严的建筑,给人留下深刻的印象,而艺术馆内珍藏的第三世多杰羌佛的真迹藏品,有不同材质的各种创作,有豪放的、也有细致妩媚而令人震惊的,不一而足;而唯一没有给参观者欣赏的是第三世多杰羌佛笔下的“向日葵”。当我听说有评论家拿梵高、齐白石的“向日葵” 与第三世多杰羌佛的“向日葵”比较时,我自然地觉得,就以我数十年对梵高和齐白石所作的研究和经验,觉得他们三人的艺术境界是旗鼓相当的,而关于比较他们三人的“向日葵” 作品,高低之分还是有的。这包括构图、色彩、用笔、线条、神韵、灵气等等,都是可以比较谁画得更好,或者换句话说,谁的作品让观者更喜欢和给人们更大的喜悦,又或对整个世界文明和艺术观与哲学的影响更大呢?因此,我们会毫不含糊地已经得出了一个结论,三人中论情性与修养,梵高会是三人之末;论功力,齐白石也在梵高之前,而梵高在西方文化中己是顶尖的强者。第三世多杰羌佛是现世纪的佛陀,大慈大悲渡众生而又非凡夫俗子之身。以佛陀的修为,不用说都在梵高和齐白石二人之上;以绘画的创造和功力,佛陀又岂是凡夫俗子们所能及的?就这样,胜负立判。

当那些评论家们把梵高和齐白石与第三世多杰羌佛的“向日葵” 进行了一番细心的研究,同时他们进行了临摹三人的“向日葵”作品,在临摹梵高和齐白石的作品后,确实深深感觉在实践中更能认识,如真正要达到他们的境界,虽不太容易而并不难。而对于第三世多杰羌佛的“向日葵”作品,临摹起来比较吃力,虽反复试了多次,不但神韵,就连外形都难摹仿。羌佛的“向日葵” 很明显地有扎实的中西画基础和传统功力,而精华粹汇,自成一派的笔触、情调与色彩。色调与笔痕浑朴厚重,温润与华美,其笔触与神韵生动活泼而融为一体,而有出神入化的磅礡豪迈与灵气,和强大的生命力。对于多杰羌佛的油画插在花瓶中的“向日葵”,画艺高绝而异变多端,构图简单玄妙,花朵大方自然,到了让人无法捉摸而达到天人合一的境地,灵气迫人。关于他的水墨“向日葵”,笔法豪放自然,挥洒自如,笔力沉雄稳健而飘逸如金石般韵味;从上到下,整幅画呈现和谐而有动感的境像,而自然地表现活鲜的生命力、潇洒与灵气的精神。

西方文明的梵高,东方文化的齐白石和第三世多杰羌佛三人的比较,因为文化的差异而各有千秋。而二三百年后,能够影响整个世界的,才是永恒的丰碑。“江山代有人才出,各领风骚五百年!” 而对现世的人们来说,你心中喜欢谁?谁就是最厉害的!

H.H.第三世多杰羌佛西画《苍叶抛红》及其它艺术作品欣赏

H.H.第三世多杰羌佛 西画 《苍叶抛红》

当你第一眼触碰到多杰羌佛第三世云高益西诺布顶圣如来的“超自然抽象色彩”,那鲜明耀眼的红黄蓝白黑,跳跃飞舞,泼辣如千里江涛泻过,收藏於微细毫端之妙趣,洒然超脱於尘俗,柔和而刚毅,各种妙丽色彩相互滋养昇华,可以说是巧夺天工,色达空灵的境界,和雅、舒服之享受真是难以言状。

“超自然抽象色彩”是一个由色彩构造起来的完美世界,它没有十分具体的世间形态,它就是色彩,以色造形,以色写意,色即是其形,色便是其意,色入感人神韵。这些色彩,一经第三世多杰羌佛之手,蓦然汇成无比奇妙惊艳的幻色,气韵生动,景如华滋,泼辣如沧海咆哮,而反之微观如毫端显意,粗中显微,神韵天成。其实现在谈三世多杰羌佛的西画高超之处,实在是低论佛陀。我们可以想到,就连空中的祥雾第三世多杰羌佛都能一手拿之入雕刻,如如而不动,对於书画,那不是小菜一碟吗?所以这些画美得醉人。

H.H.第三世多杰羌佛 西画《释迦摩尼法王子》

这些作品,融入了宇宙自然的精华、地骨山川之心源,毫不夸张地说,用“格调”、“意境”、“韵味”、“技巧”之类的词汇来标贴第三世多杰羌佛的“超自然抽象色彩”艺术,实嫌拘谨世俗,第三世多杰羌佛的艺术早已脱出此尘世樊篱的束缚,其形其意其色均似金龙脱於地壳,翱翔翻飞在碧海蓝天,恣意自在,无拘无束,掸尽尘埃,变化万千而美妙绝伦!在这些激荡心魄的艺术奇珍面前,景仰着顶圣如来云高益西诺布从无尽博大之妙心流泻出来的超人技艺,领受着三世多杰羌佛用变化无穷之色彩,为人类的享受幻化出来的超越一切现实禁锢的美丽,我们除了发自内心的激动欢欣之外,满腔赞叹的语言似乎都显得苍白无力了。三世多杰羌佛从其无上圆满的智慧中流出来的工巧神髓,让我们再次见识到云高益西诺布顶圣如来高超的西画技法和造诣,如他所画的油画“释迦牟尼法王子”,其庄严无以伦比,即可见其修养学识之高深乃是佛陀展显

《苍叶抛红》即是H.H. 第三世多杰羌佛创始的十六个画派之一, 厚堆色块派的代表作:以堆叠泼辣变化的色块笔触,体显浓厚高度立体韵味,取其抽象和超现实的具象而用色,达到神韵变化莫测、乱而不乱的艺境或写真效果。据陈列第三世多杰羌佛作品之艺术馆中导览员,导览说明时提及,《苍叶抛红》历时六年完成,堆叠50层左右,每层颜料等乾透之後,才会续着新的一层,功法巧妙,不可言喻。

H.H.第三世多杰羌佛加持,癌症晚期病人康复纪实

前言:很多不了解佛法的人,会认为佛教是迷信,是怪力乱神!其实是受了所知障的迷惑。以下是真实发生的事情,供大家参考。这个世界的确有很多东西是我们现在暂时不了解的,但不等于它不存在!开放心灵,放下成见,我们会对所处的世界多一分觉知。

H.H.第三世多杰羌佛的加持与遵守佛法教诫,令80岁的姑母癌症晚期奇迹康复

我出生于一个高级知识分子家庭,拥有欧洲著名大学研究生学历,同辈、父辈中也有几位是东京早稻田大学、UCLA加州大学洛杉矶分校、日本北海道大学等著名大学的博士、博士后学历。交代这段背景,目的想说明:我们是一个理智的家庭,没有封建迷信的遗风,以下我所言真实不虚,并无捕风捉影与封建迷信的怪力乱神之说。

我的姑妈,是一位60年前的大学生,毕业于北京地质大学是一位考古学专家,80周岁,于今年(2016.8.3)在省肿瘤医院发现“肺癌恶性肿瘤”,做了切除手术后,住院治疗。

80岁的姑妈,生性乐观豁达、知足少欲,非常乐于行善布施。大概1997年,我拜H.H.第三世多杰羌佛师父为师(因缘所致那时圣号为“云高”大师),知晓了“四无量心、五戒、十善”等佛法初入门的道理,当即奉劝姑妈一家戒吃活鲜,她欣然同意,而且20年来始终坚守。平日放生、乐捐如来正法寺庙、或者帮助贫困,姑妈也都欣然乐于布施,这也为她自己种下了菩提功德。

感恩佛菩萨加持,手术很顺利,乐观布施、不执著,不杀生是她最大的特点

发现姑妈肺癌晚期时,我第一时间求H.H.第三世多杰羌佛陀师父慈悲加持、和证达大法师联系也请求她加持,同时我们“空中藏经阁”的师兄姐每天都为她念诵《度母礼赞经》等功课回向,乐观积极的姑妈也非常积极的配合治疗,勤于修行“善语业、布施、放生、乐捐如来正法寺庙“,戒杀活鲜近20年的她恢复的极快,而且整个过程没有受什么罪。毕竟是癌症病房,同病房的病友,有些病情没有她严重的反而痛苦不堪

以下是她同病室病友的照片对比(病友们的年龄比姑妈小5-13岁之间)

以下是姑妈 谈笑风生,用微信报平安的照片:

感恩佛菩萨的加持,姑妈康复的很快,12天就出院了(下图)

姑妈出院后康复的很好,医院主任说她恢复的比年轻人还快。80岁的人,肺癌手术,恢复的如此快速,且健步如飞,每天自己行动自如下楼散步2次。还自己跑到医院办手续。佛法的加持真实不虚,这整个过程几乎就是奇迹,说出来,都令人难以置信,但这就是真实不虚的铁事!

经H.H.第三世多杰羌佛陀师父加持,这80岁的老人癌症手术3个月术后复查,完全康复。而且声如洪钟、行动自如、自己去银行、超市、或者公园散步,每天还主动做一些家务活。她十几年前就听劝:1.不吃活鲜点杀;2.勤于参与放生;3.积极乐捐寺庙;4.善于乐善好施、帮助贫困、救济苦难

佛法伟大真实不虚,但加持只属于真正行持善法、听从佛菩萨教化的人。感恩H.H.第三世多杰羌佛佛陀师父、感恩证达上人加持与护法。

佛教圣僧悟明长老 圆寂坐缸永留全身舍利

曾亲历并见证南无第三世多杰羌佛请佛陀从虚空降下真精甘露的显宗精神领袖,高龄102岁的台湾中国佛教会前理事长悟明长老,2011年7月19日观音成道日在海明寺圆寂。当天海明寺正在举行观音佛七,上午信众欢欣庆祝观音菩萨成道,下午得知悟明长老亦已圆寂,僧信众等集众念佛回向,祈愿长老早返娑婆,广渡有情。悟明长老一生严守戒律,踏实修行,以观音法门为根本,一门深入,化人无数,被赞誉为“观世音菩萨在台湾的应化”。在南无第三世多杰羌佛为其佛降甘露加持灌顶时,显露化身,二面两臂。露出他原本是菩萨应世的圣僧。以下照片为悟明长老跪拜南无第三世多杰羌佛,佛陀为他作甘露加持受法。

上图:悟明大长老在甘露法会上现二脸面的菩萨相(第一排中间)

1960年,悟明长老创建千霞山海明禅寺,1962年创建观音禅院。从大陆来台后,师积极从事弘扬佛法之工作,南北花东各地演讲佛法、主持佛七、举办大悲忏法会等等,1963年,悟明长老应美东佛教总会之请,赴美国纽约弘法开辟华僧赴美弘法之先驱,并于哈佛大学、纽约基督教教会、圣玛丽天主教堂、以及各大学公私机构等演讲佛法三十余次,度众三百余人,并于美国创办中美学佛会以及洛杉矶护国禅寺。

悟明长老自创建海明寺以来,半个世纪间,马不停蹄的为弘扬佛法利益众生为己任,往来世界各地,台湾南北弘法演讲,注重僧伽教育的老和尚,于1965年创办海明佛学院,培育僧青年,对佛教界做出了积极的贡献。

1986年1月,悟老出席泰国曼谷举办的“世界佛教僧伽会第四届大会”,悟明长老则担任首席副会长,并代行会长之职;1986年,荣任台湾“中国佛教会”第十一届、十二届理事长;1989年3月,七十九岁的悟老所主持的“玄奘学术研究院”为纪念玄奘大师一千三百八十八岁诞辰,在台北善导寺举行纪念大会;1989年4月,“世界佛教僧伽会” 在台召开第五届大会,推举悟明长老为“世界佛教僧伽会”会长;1998年7月,悟老应圣严法师之请,担任“两岸佛学教学育交流座谈会暨博览会”之顾问;2000年,世界佛教僧伽会海内外僧伽齐聚台岛,为悟明长老祝九十岁大寿,并推举悟明长老为永久荣誉会长。

此外,悟明长老更以效法观音菩萨慈悲之悲心,在社会福利不健全的年代,兴办社会公益慈善,扶贫济弱事业,1972年创办玄奘慈幼院,收容孤儿数十人,他还在大陆办上海仁恩诊所、上海仁恩施粥所及悟明爱心小学等,大大加强了两岸之间的佛学交流。

悟明长老坐化圆寂后法相

与悟明长老接触过的人,都对悟老的人品有着众口一词的敬佩。方丈和尚果东法师这样回忆悟老:“长老接引众生,一视平等,不会因来者的社会形象有所争议而拒于门外,所有三教九流,长老全都接引,而给予佛法教导,是我们需要学习的典范。”台湾的圣严师父曾在一篇为悟老庆寿的文章中写道:“他从未把我当做徒弟来差遣,却常把我当做徒弟来照顾,对我而言,他是我的戒师,更像是我的观世音菩萨。”

由此可观,悟明长老以其慈祥风范,近七十年的弘化身涯,齿德具尊;悟明长老曾自说:“有我老悟明的地方,就有佛法”,矢志为“佛教搭起一座通往社会的桥梁”,遂其以一颗慈悲之心,身入红尘,随缘渡化,广披苍生;可见其慈心悲愿之深切矣。悟明长老一生行德,以观音之慈心,行普贤之愿海;圆寂赞颂会当日,并获总统明令褒扬,并覆国旗,藉以表彰其终其一生,护国卫教、慈悲济世之功勋。

悟明长老世寿102岁,僧腊八十八载,戒腊八十二夏,30年前就订制上下对口莲花缸,发愿圆寂后坐缸,留下全身舍利,供世人瞻仰礼容。海明寺遵照老和尚遗嘱,将一连举办49天“大悲忏法会”。7月22日,数十位佛教界长老齐聚悟明长老的封缸大典。

H.H.第三世多杰羌佛到底是什么人?为什么如此受国家重视、民众崇敬?

2002年12月,H.H.第三世多杰羌佛获得美国布希总统颁发的金质奖章,以表彰羌佛崇高的伦理道德、艺术成就和对人类的杰出贡献。

2010年H.H.第三世多杰羌佛获颁世界和平奖最高荣誉奖。

2011年,H.H.第三世多杰羌佛获得极为崇高的马丁路德金奖的“国际服务奖”与“领袖奖”。

2018 年再获世界佛教领袖的最高定位!

早在2013年的美国国会参议院614号决议文,就正式通过在第三世多杰羌佛名字前冠H.H.(H.H.Dorje Chang Buddha III) ,意思是登峰造极没有比祂更高更珍贵的了。这一决议将第三世多杰羌佛的地位正式列入了至高顶峰。我有幸问到H.H.第三世多杰羌佛:”我听说佛陀已是世界佛教教皇的地位,获得教皇权杖。”羌佛说:”这有意思吗?自觉觉他才是佛教的真正权杖。”

H.H.第三世多杰羌佛的成立,是根据宗教认证制度定论的,类似于班禅、噶玛巴等,不是自封,而是制度认证的。佛教认证制度,只要两个活佛喇嘛认可,做出认证就成立了,H.H.第三世多杰羌佛是整个佛教认证史上得到认证最多的一个,没有一个前人超过羌佛五分之一的认证附议文。H.H.第三世多杰羌佛的成立所具的确定性证据,自不是哪个说了算,也不是哪个说不算就不算的,而是制度性的铁定的定论。

H.H.第三世多杰羌佛从中国到美国已经二十年了,由于祂的行愿不收供养,故多以画画或雕塑等艺术创作的收入维生。祂自奉甚简,对正义的、善事好事、需要帮助的,利益他人,大力资助,甚至卖画专门供给寺庙的开销与出家人的生活。早年祂还在中国成都时,在生活物资缺乏的配给制时代,只要祂在家,前来祂家求诊的各种病患络绎不绝,每天挂号三百号,祂都无条件为病人诊治不收分文,碰到穷苦人家买不起药材的,羌佛还将自家配给到的有限生活物资赠与穷苦病人,甚至当祂没有东西吃都快饿昏了,病患给祂食物,祂还是拒绝不收。羌佛在十几岁时以“念奴娇”词牌作的词“顿入乾坤”中写道:“三千疾患访俺门,昼夜岐黄施绝”,就是描述这场景。

近日台湾重要高层政治人物的妹妹关珠,在美国圣迹寺大雄宝殿上,由法师主持,击鼓撞钟,在释迦牟尼佛像前,众目睽睽中发下重誓以保真实,说出了一件有关H.H.第三世多杰羌佛隐深多年不宣的秘密,震惊四座。她说道羌佛的弟子拆船大王潘孝锐老先生曾多次要对羌佛作供养,都是她作为联系人。潘孝锐先生说,当年他和星云法师一起到台湾,星云法师当时所有生活与僧众的生活费都是由孝锐先生供给,他也是国际佛光会世界总会发起人,监事长。包括美国的西来寺也是他作主体捐建的。1999年羌佛刚到美国不久,孝锐先生请羌佛到旧金山看土地打算作供养,旧金山的土地房屋可是寸土寸金啊!孝锐先生先是邀请羌佛看了一片两千多公顷,位于旧金山郊区的土地,被羌佛以地太大为由拒绝。他又找了旧金山市区的37英亩土地(合中国201市亩),羌佛又找理由拒绝了。他又找奥克兰的一栋七层楼西班牙建筑,六万五千平方尺,还是被羌佛拒绝。孝锐先生无策上供,只好每年供养现金,一供养就是巨额上百万美元,羌佛没有接受过一次,每次都让关珠把佛教机构和寺庙的帐号拿给孝锐先生,然而,大家想不到的是:羌佛竟然不是这些寺庙或机构的成员。2013年,孝锐老先生最后一次到美国拜见羌佛,他说自己年纪大了,淮备圆寂,他来的目的是准备供养大量黄金。原来孝锐先生曾是国民党高官戴笠的副参谋长,经管涉及戴笠的一些商务与财务,当年他买了大量的黄金,存在香港金库,有两公斤重一块的,有五公斤重一块的,非常之多,全部要供养给羌佛,还和关珠讨论到要用飞机运还是用轮船运?可见数量之庞大!羌佛当下就全部拒绝了,而且不准他再提“黄金”两个字。羌佛为了阻止潘老先生,告诉他不可再提供养,否则会破坏法缘。在其他人那里,是千方百计动员信徒作供养,而羌佛却是将巨额供养推开,挡在门外!这是常人做得到的吗?谁能有如此无私无贪的圣洁净品啊!!

试想,这么巨额的土地、建物、现金、黄金要白给你,这些白花花的钱与财,平白要送给你,谁能不心动?但羌佛不但不动心,还全部婉言拒绝! 羌佛是1999年到的美国,其实祂在美国的生活一直很艰苦,但祂从不当回事,处处想的是大众的利益,以身作则,言传身教于行人。二十年至今,一直过着艰苦朴素的生活。我经常去羌佛家中的办公室,这个办公室,说来见笑,是在一个走道的洗手间门口,由于堆了各种书籍杂件,剩余的空间最多只有四平方米,遇上人通过走道时,还要请坐着的人起身让道才过得去。大家根本想不到的是,羌佛到美国20年来,没有一张餐桌吃饭,一直是在厨房的灶台上用餐,很多佛教的高僧大德们与羌佛一起用过餐,也都是在灶台边站着,包括羌佛本人。羌佛家里的全部空间,都用来存放佛门所用和五明成果。我还曾亲自看到羌佛在缝补祂的衣服,祂笑着说:“唉,不小心划破了!”羌佛的圣洁伟大哪里是普通人能得知其内涵的?人在很富有时,别人的捐赠,或许可以无动于衷,但拮据需要钱的时候,面对白送的巨款,还能无动于衷,那只有羌佛才能做到!这个社会上,人人都在求发财,梦发财,面对别人心甘情愿平白送来的大量金钱财产,这可是人人渴求的发财梦啊,第三世多杰羌佛竟然连看都不想看, 轻轻就拒绝了,世上哪有这种能享受不享受,把富贵放弃,把艰难留给自己的人?这样的德品,谁做得到?也许只有释迦牟尼佛与羌佛做得到!!

H.H.第三世多杰羌佛的真实身份还不为世人知道之前,祂就以五明成就登峰造极闻名于世,光是书画,祂一人就创立了16种画派,包含中画、西画,包括人、鸟、虫、鱼、自然、静物、山、水、风景、工笔、写意,包括抽象、现实、印象,且件件都是无可比拟的成就。 祂的书画与雕塑作品被美国国际艺术馆收藏,第三世多杰羌佛文化艺术馆专门永久陈列祂的作品。今年,白宫高层来到羌佛家里做客,向祂提问说:“看到您的艺术成就,我们所有人都无法开解这个谜,您整天24小时都在艺术创作吗?就算你24小时都在做,也做不了这麽多艺术作品啊!” H.H.第三世杰羌佛回答:“我很惭愧,我每天都浸泡在佛教事务中,少之又少的时间创作艺术。”白宫高层又问:“我们看过你的作品,其中一件,每天做,几十年也完不成,这是我们无法理解的,它是怎麽诞生出来的?” H.H.第三世多杰羌佛办公室的负责人回答:“你看到的这一件只是佛陀创作的百分之一!”大家一听,更是惊迷。 这真是一件无法用人类思维能解释的事实。 其实不论琴、棋、书、画、雕塑、庭园设计、写文章、写诗、词、歌、赋、哲言、歌唱等,羌佛无一不精。随便一个乐器,羌佛信手拿来,就能吹弹,甚至科研、厨艺亦是精道无比。羌佛的力气也特别超凡,在今年祂一只手就把两百斤重的地杵轻易拿上了供台,有两千多人都来试过这把地杵,还有健身房的教练-二十多岁体重两百多磅的大力士,至今为止都没有一个人能单手把地杵提离地面。

羌佛到美国20年了,一直义务服务大众,虽有专人在另一处工作室为祂做餐,但每回厨师们问羌佛想吃什么菜,点一点吧,羌佛总说:“你们安排什么吃什么,少而简单就好。”20 年来羌佛没有点过一次菜。要知道那是祂自己的厨房厨师啊,竟然几十年不贪一喜之食!羌佛的内涵本质非常人所能测度,羌佛的佛陀真相,从不显露于世人。当邪恶之师诽谤否定祂不是佛陀时,他毫不在意,从不拿圣量出来证明自己是佛陀。去年,有邪灵之人伤害大量佛弟子慧命的魔力降临了,羌佛为了救渡众生,无奈之下,在众人提问的当场,展显了佛陀真容,两眉间顿出白毫,在场有人看到一根白毫,有人看到一大撮白毫,有人看到螺旋状白毫,盘如珍珠,有人看到是呈放射状,如钢针直立,白毫放出白光,同时各人所见不同,有一个白人高官说他没有看到白毫,但他看到ㄧ分钟内羌佛变成了两个完全不同的形象!羌佛展现佛陀相时,整个脸变成亮丽的红珊瑚色,而两边脸部放出强光如太阳,照得人眼睛睁不开,并现平齿相等佛陀具备的三十二大丈夫相!原来羌佛果真是古佛如来,难怪是五明高峰无双,经教论学贯通无缺,难行能行,难忍能忍,无贪无瞋,毫无执念,大智无量,大悲无尽,原来是佛陀本质之使然由是。

自从被佛教各大教派的领袖认证为第三世多杰羌佛后,羌佛更是忙于法务,祂现在已经不再画画,祂一直以来都是义务为大众服务传法说法,每天平均8到12小时是常事,常常接待佛弟子到深夜两三点,这么长期的辛劳义务服务,却从来不收任何供养,如此忘我无私,处处把利益他人放在第一位,祇利益他人从来不关心自己,这世界似乎还没有出现过这样的人,实在是太不可思议了!

这世上,有才的人,不一定有德,且所具之才颇为单项;有德的人,不一定有才,且所有之德多为平凡之境。但羌佛不仅德才圆满无缺,高峰入顶,更为世人所景仰钦敬的是,羌佛慈悲渡生,乃至对那些害祂的人,矇谤祂的人,祂也全无瞋恨,还随时为他们祈祷,祝他们幸福。例如,羌佛早年曾被人矇害,以致被国际刑警专案调查,经过三年铸铁般的锤炼,真金不怕火烧,国际刑警组织通过72届大会撤了案,且发文给各成员国不可置留第三世多杰羌佛,中国也打报告说第三世多杰佛没有任何罪,请求国际刑警组织撤案, 国际刑警组织还特地为此发了一份文件给第三世多杰羌佛。对收到的这份可以洗清祂被泼葬水的撤案文件,祂却不同意把文件发到网上。问到为何?羌佛说:“清白了我,那害我的人就不清白了!”对害祂的人,不但不瞋恨,宁可自己受世人误解,也不愿谤害祂的人受到痛苦或尝恶果,这是何等无私、何等慈悲、何等伟大的佛品!

H.H.第三世多杰羌佛就是这样,用他的佛德来现身育化大众,感化他人做诸恶莫作、众善奉行的好人、修行人、利益大众的人,这才是至高的无为佛德。

佛格,乃佛智、佛量、佛德融汇圆成之佛觉。羌佛的智慧,惊世五明,成果累累,登巅峰而造极,世所共见;羌佛的圣量,显报身相,说如来法,请弥陀现,让甘露临,渡无量生;羌佛之佛德,大悲慈忍,无贪无嗔无执,全无私,尽利他,其纯淨高洁,日月之明净所不能及!面对羌佛这样的佛陀本质,身为凡夫的我们,还说什麽呢?

我唯一能说的,就是请大家稍微回思几个问题:

面对巨额黄金、土地、财产供养,不贪、不沾,谁做得到?

国际刑警组织发给祂的文件,足以洗清祂被构陷的嫌疑,祂却把文件放在保险柜中,动都不动,这谁做得到?

发愿终身不收供养,而从早到晚甚至忙到凌晨两三点,为众说法,为大众服务不收分文,谁做得到?

事实上,大概只有释迦牟尼佛、十方诸佛与南无第三世多杰羌佛做得到!

President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and several senior congressional members congratulated H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha IIIfor His birthday in honor of His status as the supreme leader of all Buddhism and selfless contributions.

LOS ANGELES, CA, August 04, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — On June 24, 2018, the flag of the United States was raised over Holy Heavenly Lake in California. That flag was not bought from the street. Rather, it was the very flag that on May 15th was fluttering in the sky above the United States Congress in Washington, D.C.. The same flag was later delivered to the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. The raising of that national flag at the Capitol was inspired by the Buddha-character of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.

May 15th is the birthday of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. That national flag was raised at Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. specifically for the birthday of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. The flag-raising document stated, “This flag was flown in honor of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, supreme leader of all Buddhism, on the occasion of his birthday.”

In their message congratulating H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III on His birthday, United States President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump stated, “His Holiness Dorje Chang Buddha III, Pasadena, California. Your Holiness, we are pleased to join your family and friends in wishing you a happy birthday! As you celebrate this special occasion, we pray your year ahead is filled with good health, happiness, and the many blessings of our great Nation. With very best wishes.” A number of senior congressional members from both the House and the Senate also sent letters to congratulate H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III on His birthday, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Ed Royce, former Chairperson of the Senate Intelligence Committee Dianne Feinstein, the Ranking member of the Senate Committee on Appropriations Patrick Leahy, and others.

Additionally, the United States Postal Service authorized the issuance of a first-day cover to commemorate this significant day of raising the national flag in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the birthday of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.

On June 24, 2018 when that flag of the United States was flying above Holy Heavenly Lake in California, several thousand Buddhist figures from all over the world voluntarily congregated at Holy Heavenly Lake. Most of them are dharma masters and religious teachers within Buddhism. The “Celebrating the Birthday of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III” Grand Dharma Assembly was held there. Buddhists knelt on the ground with khatas in their hands, waiting for the holy presence of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. At around 5:00 in the afternoon, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III arrived. Guarded and protected by multiple-layers of police officers and S.W.A.T. crews, His Holiness the Buddha walked onto the red carpet. All Buddhists kept chanting loudly, “Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!”

Venerable Mozhi, the person in charge of World Buddhism Association Headquarters in the United States, announced at the dharma assembly that a Buddhist city will be built at Holy Heavenly Lake in California. This Buddhist city will be similar to the Vatican, where the Pope of Catholicism resides. The “True Dharma Temple,” where H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III will reside, will also be built there. Holy Heavenly Lake is a Buddhist treasure-land. Beneath it is a huge underground crystal lake. Below the lakeside of Holy Heavenly Lake, there is also an underground river which is one of the two great underground rivers in the world that flows from south to north. That place is truly auspicious! The Buddhist city will accommodate temple clusters, businesses, tourism, hotels, rivers and ferry boats, all threaded together into an aquatic city by nautical waterways. Most important of all, the Ancient Buddha True Dharma Temple—the holy site for spreading true Buddha-dharma—will become the most authentic holy site in the world for propagating true Buddha-dharma!

Who is H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III? Why is His Holiness given such importance by our nation and respected so broadly by the public?

In December of 2002, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was awarded the Gold Medal issued by President George W. Bush to honor His Holiness’ noble ethics and morality, accomplishments in artistry, and outstanding contributions to humanity. In 2010, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was awarded the World Peace Prize – Top Honor Prize. In 2011, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was awarded the distinguished Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Award for International Service and Leadership. In 2018, the status of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III as the supreme leader of the entirety of Buddhism was once again confirmed!

As early as in 2012, the United States Senate passed Resolution No. 614, formally designating H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III with the honorific title “His Holiness” (abbreviated as H.H.). Such a title indicated recognition of the highest level, unexcelled and most treasured status. This resolution officially placed the status of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III at the highest level. I had the good fortune to ask H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, “I heard that Your Holiness has the status of the Pope of Buddhism and that Your Holiness has received the Buddhist Papal Scepter.” H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said, “Is there any meaning in that? The true Buddhist scepter is to be enlightened and then enlighten others.”

The status of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was conclusively established according to the system of Buddhist recognition in a manner similar to how the Penchen Lama, Karmapa, and others were recognized. Such status is not self-conferred but determined by the system. According to the Buddhist system of recognition, it only takes two rinpoches or lamas to issue a recognition. The recognition is then considered formally established. In the entire history of formal recognitions within Buddhism, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the one who has received the largest number of recognitions. No one has ever gotten even one-fifth of the recognitions that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has received. This establishment of the position of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III based on conclusive evidence cannot be affected in any way by anybody’s endorsement or veto. Rather, it is a systemic and ironclad conclusion.

It has been twenty years since H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III came to the United States from China. Since it is His vow of conduct not to accept any offerings, His Holiness makes his living mainly from income generated from His paintings and sculptures. His Holiness lives a very simple life yet vigorously supports matters of justice, deeds of benevolence, charity to the needy, and the benefiting of others. His Holiness even sold paintings specifically to cover the expenses of temples and the livelihoods of monastics.

In the early years when H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was in Chengdu, China, living supplies were scarce and people lived on rations. Whenever His Holiness was home, patients with all kinds of illnesses came in an endless stream to seek treatment. Three hundred people registered to seek treatment from Him each day. His Holiness the Buddha always treated patients with no conditions attached and without accepting even one cent. When encountering poor patients who could not afford their medicine, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III even gave His own limited rationed living supplies to those poor and sick patients. Even when His Holiness had nothing to eat and was about to faint, He still refused to accept the food offered by His patients. In His teenage years, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III used the iambic format of “Nian Nu Jiao” to compose the verse “Immediate Entry into the Universe,” in which He wrote, “Three thousand patients come to my door. Day and night, I apply herbal medicine to do wonders.” That was a depiction of the situation then.

Recently, in the Grand Hall of the Buddha at the Holy Miracles Temple in the United States, Ms. Judy Kuan, who is the younger sister of an important high-level political figure in Taiwan, revealed a deeply hidden secret that people did not know for many years about H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Her reading of the factual account was hosted by dharma masters. Following the beating of the drum and the striking of the bell, in front of the statue of Sakyamuni Buddha and the congregation, she made a grave vow to tell the truth. Such truth astounded everyone in the audience.

She mentioned that the elderly Mr. Pan Shiao Rui, the ship-dismantling king who was a disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, wanted to present offerings to H.H. the Buddha many times. Ms. Kuan was always the contact person for him. Mr. Pan Shiao Rui told her that he and Dharma Master Hsing Yun went to Taiwan together in the early years. At that time, Mr. Pan sponsored all the expenses of Dharma Master Hsing Yun as well as the living expenses of his monastic followers. He was also the sponsor and supervisor of the International Buddha’s Light Association. The affiliated Hsi Lai Temple in the United States was also built mainly from his donations.

In 1999, shortly after H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III came to the United States, Mr. Pan invited H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III to San Francisco to look at a piece of land that he wanted to present as an offering. Real estate in San Francisco was priced like gold! Mr. Pan first invited H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III to look at a piece of land in the suburbs of San Francisco that was more than 2,000 acres. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III declined his offering, using the pretext that the land was too big. Mr. Pan then found another thirty-seven-acre (approximately 201 Chinese mu) piece of land in the city of San Francisco. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III again declined, using a different reason. Then Mr. Pan found and offered a seven-story Spanish-style building of 65,000 square feet in Oakland, which was again declined by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Having no way to make his offerings, Mr. Pan resorted to presenting monetary offerings each year in huge sums of over US$1,000,000. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did not accept even one of them. His Holiness always told Judy Kuan to give Mr. Pan the bank account number of either a Buddhist organization or a temple. However, what you cannot imagine is that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was not even a member of those temples or organizations.

In 2013, the elderly Mr. Pan came for the last time to America to pay respect to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. He said that he had reached an advanced age and was preparing to leave this world. He had come that time to present a large amount of gold as an offering. Mr. Pan was once the deputy chief of staff to Dai Li, who was a senior official in the Kuomintang (Nationalist Party). Mr. Pan was responsible for managing some business and financial affairs for Dai Li. At that time, Mr. Pan bought a large amount of gold, which was put away in a Hong Kong treasury. The gold bars weighed two kilograms to five kilograms apiece, and there was a huge quantity. He wanted to present all the gold to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III as an offering. He even discussed with Judy Kuan whether to transport the gold by plane or ship. You can imagine the vast quantity! H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III immediately refused the entire offering and did not even allow him to mention the word “gold” again. To stop the elderly Mr. Pan, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III told him not to mention making an offering again; otherwise, his karmic connection with the dharma would be damaged.

Other people would use all possible methods to arouse their followers to make offerings, yet H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III rejected such enormous offerings! Is this something an ordinary person could do? Who can have such selfless, greedless character of holy purity! Think about this: If one were given free of charge such an enormous amount of land, buildings, cash, or gold, if one were given such glittering money and wealth with no strings attached, who could remain unmoved? H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was not only unmoved, He graciously declined all of those offerings!

H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III came to the United States in 1999. Actually, His life in the United States has always been very arduous, but He has never minded that. All that His Holiness thinks about are the interests of the public. His Holiness serves as a model for others, teaching cultivators with His own words and conduct. For the past twenty years until now, His Holiness has always lived a hard and simple life. I often go to the home office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Mentioning that office may elicit laughter. It is in a corridor right outside a bathroom. With all kinds of books and other things piled up there, the remaining space is at most only four square meters. When someone is coming through the corridor, those sitting there have to get up to let that person through.

You cannot even imagine that in the twenty years during which H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has lived in the United States, His Holiness has not even had a dining table. He always eats His meals at the kitchen counter. Many Buddhist eminent monastics and greatly virtuous ones have eaten meals with H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. They, too, stood beside the kitchen counter just like H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did. Almost all of the space inside the home of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is taken up by the storage of Buddhist objects and His Holiness’ accomplishments in the Five Vidyas. I once personally saw H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III sewing and mending His own clothes. His Holiness said with a smile, “Too bad, I accidentally slit it!” How could an ordinary person fathom the holy purity and greatness of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III?

When one is rich, perhaps one can be indifferent toward donations from others. However, what about when one is poor, in need of money, and is presented with a huge sum of money with no strings attached? Only H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III can remain unmoved in such circumstances! In this society, everybody wants to become rich. They dream of becoming rich. When someone else is perfectly willing to give away a huge amount of money and assets with no strings attached, this is everyone’s get-rich dream coming true. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did not even take a look at those offerings and simply refused them with ease. Where else in the world is there a person who does not enjoy what he is able to enjoy, who gives up wealth, and who keeps hardships for himself? Who can attain such virtuous conduct? Perhaps only Sakyamuni Buddha and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III can do so.

Before the true identity of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was known to the world, His Holiness the Buddha was already world-famous for having attained the pinnacle of accomplishment in the Five Vidyas. Just in painting alone, His Holiness single-handedly founded sixteen painting styles used in both Chinese and Western painting. The subject matter of those paintings include people, birds, insects, fishes, nature, still life, mountains, water, and landscape. The brushwork includes realistic fine brushstrokes and freehand brushstrokes, and the techniques include abstract, realist, and impressionist techniques. Each work of art is an accomplishment that is unparalleled. His Holiness’ paintings, calligraphy, and sculptures are collected by the International Art Museum of America. The H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Cultural and Art Museum is dedicated to permanently exhibiting artworks created by His Holiness.

This year, senior officials from the White House were guests at the home of His Holiness. One of them asked His Holiness, “Seeing your artistic accomplishments, there is a puzzle that none of us can figure out. Do you spend twenty-four hours every day to create art? Even if you spent twenty-four hours a day, you still could not possibly have created so many artworks!” H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III replied, “I am very ashamed. I am immersed in Buddhist matters every day. I spend so very little time creating art.” That senior official from the White House then asked, “We have seen your artworks. There is one piece that you could not have possibly finished even if you worked on it every day for several decades. That is what we are unable to understand. How did it come into being?” The person in charge of the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III replied, “The piece you saw is only one percent of the artworks created by His Holiness the Buddha.” Upon hearing that, everyone was even more astounded and puzzled. This truly is a fact that cannot be explained through ordinary human thinking.

In fact, be it the zither, chess, calligraphy, painting, sculpture, landscape design, literature, poetry, iambic verses, odes, songs, maxims of philosophy, singing, and other disciplines, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has distinguished expertise in all of them. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III can indiscriminately take into his hands any musical instrument and play it. His Holiness is exceptionally accomplished even in scientific research and culinary skills. The physical strength of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is also quite extraordinary. This year, His Holiness effortlessly picked up with one hand an Earth Vajra weighing 220 pounds and put it on the offering table. More than 2,000 people have tried to pick up the same Earth Vajra, including a gym-trainer of extraordinary strength who is in his twenties and weighs over 200 pounds. However, until now, nobody has been able to lift that Earth Vajra off the ground with one hand.

It has been twenty years since H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III came to America. Throughout all these years, His Holiness has been voluntarily serving the public. Although there are designated people who prepare the meals for His Holiness from another work area, whenever the cooks ask H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III what He would like to eat, He always relies, “I eat whatever you prepare. Something simple and in a small amount is fine.” For twenty years, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has never specified the food that He wanted to eat. Those people are cooks in His Holiness’ own kitchen, yet His Holiness has never had any craving for the joy of food throughout these decades!

The innate character of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III cannot be fathomed by common people. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III never reveals His true state of Buddhahood to the world. When evil masters slandered His Holiness by saying He is not a Buddha, He did not mind in the least and never manifested His holy realization to prove that He is a Buddha. Last year, some people of evil spirit brought on demonic forces to damage the wisdom-lifeblood of numerous Buddhist disciples. When someone openly raised questions about that, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III reluctantly manifested the true appearance of Buddha in order to save living beings. White thin hairs instantly emerged between His Holiness’ eyebrows. At the time, some people saw one white hair, while others saw a large tuft of white hairs. Some saw white spiraling hairs intertwined like pearls. Some saw the hairs radiating and standing like steel needles, emitting white light. During the same time, what each person saw was different. A Caucasian who was a high government official said that he did not see the white hairs but did see two completely different visages of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III within one minute! When H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III manifested His sambhogakaya appearance as a Buddha, His entire face became the bright and beautiful color of red coral. Moreover, the two sides of His face emitted strong light, like that of the sun, causing some people to be unable to open their eyes. His Holiness also manifested the even-teeth appearance, which is one of the thirty-two marks of a Buddha!

H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III truly is an ancient-Buddha Tathagata. No wonder His Holiness has reached the unmatched pinnacle of accomplishment in the Five Vidyas. No wonder His Holiness is perfectly proficient in the sutras and treatises, can do that which is difficult to do, and can endure that which is difficult to endure. No wonder His Holiness has no greed, has no anger, and has not even the slightest mental attachment. His great wisdom is limitless, and His compassion is boundless. All of these qualities are due to the innate character of a Buddha.

Since being recognized as H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III by the leaders of each of the major Buddhist sects and schools, His Holiness has been even more fully occupied with dharma matters. His Holiness no longer creates any paintings. As always, His Holiness voluntarily serves the public, transmitting dharma and expounding dharma for an average of eight to twelve hours a day. His Holiness often grants audiences to disciples until 2:00 or 3:00 in the wee hours of the night. Even though His Holiness has arduously served others on a voluntary basis over such a long period of time, He nonetheless has never accepted any offerings. It seems that there has never been another person in this world who is so selfless, who always puts benefiting others above all else, and who always serves the interests of others without a care for himself. This is truly quite inconceivable!

In this world, people of talent are not necessarily virtuous. Moreover, they are usually talented in one particular discipline. People of virtue may not necessarily be talented. Moreover, the virtue they possess is often ordinary. However, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III possess perfect and flawless virtue along with talent that has reached the apex of accomplishment. Furthermore, what the world respects and admires most is that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III saves living beings out of loving compassion. His Holiness has no anger or hatred at all, even toward those who harmed, deceived, or slandered Him. His Holiness even often prays for those people, wishing them happiness.

For example, many years ago H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was falsely persecuted, which led to the launch of a special investigation by INTERPOL. That was three full years of tribulation. Yet, just as real gold fears no fire, a man of integrity can stand severe tests. The case against His Holiness was dismissed during the 72nd session of the Commission for the Control of Interpol’s Files. Official written notification was subsequently issued to all member countries of INTERPOL, informing them that they cannot detain H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. China also submitted a report stating that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did not commit any crime, and China requested that INTERPOL withdrawal the case against Him. INTERPOL even specially issued a document to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III regarding the conclusion of the case. After His Holiness received that document dismissing His case and clearing Him of all the smearing targeted against Him, His Holiness did not agree to show it on the internet. When asked why not, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said, “If my name is cleared, then the names of those who harmed me will not be cleared.” His Holiness the Buddha does not bear any anger or hatred toward those who harmed Him. His Holiness would rather be misunderstood by the world than have those who slandered and harmed Him experience suffering or dreadful consequences. What selfless, compassionate, and magnificent Buddha-character this is!

This is the way H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is, personally applying His Buddha-virtue to teach and transform people, inspiring others to be good people, to abstain from all evil, to do all deeds of goodness, to be cultivators, and to be people who benefit others. This is the supreme and unconditioned Buddha-virtue.

Buddha-character comes from the state of Buddha-enlightenment that perfectly integrates Buddha-wisdom, Buddha-merit, and Buddha-virtue. The wisdom of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, His world-astounding accomplishments in the Five Vidyas, and His numerous achievements that are at the highest level are openly witnessed by the world. The holy realization of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III can be seen when His Holiness manifests His sambhogakaya appearance, when His Holiness teaches the dharma of the Tathagata, successfully invokes the presence of Amitabha Buddha, causes holy holy nectar (amrita) to descend to earth, and saves countless living beings. The Buddha-virtue of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III entails great compassion and forbearance. It is free of greed, anger, and attachment. It is completely devoid of selfishness, and is totally dedicated to benefiting others. Such purity and nobility exceeds even the brightness and purity of the sun and moon! When we see such inner character of a Buddha in H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, what can we who are ordinary beings say?

All I can say is that I ask everyone to reflect a bit on the following few questions:

Presented with offerings of a huge amount of gold, land, and wealth, His Holiness was completely without greed and remained unaffected. Who can do that?

Holding a document from INTERPOL that cleared Him of all the accusations fabricated against Him, His Holiness simply locked the document into a safe without making any use of it. Who can do that?

Having made the lifetime vow of not accepting any offerings, His Holiness is continuously busy expounding dharma to people and serving the public from early morning till late at night, even up to 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning, without receiving even one cent in return. Who can do that?

The truth is, probably only Sakyamuni Buddha, all Buddhas in the ten directions, and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III can do so!
