At 5PM yesterday (December 29. 2017) afternoon, in the Amitabha Buddha Hall in the United States of America, there were four types of Buddhists of monastics and laypersons. They are cultivators with sharp intelligence and deep good roots. Their ages range from elders in the 80s and toddlers as young as 2. All found their place to sit on the floor, waiting for listening to the dharma. There were also a few demonic persons (living beings) mixed in the crowd.
After prostrating to pay homage, all presented their offerings. As always, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did not accept any of the offerings and began to expound the dharma for free. At this time, Baizhe Rinpoche held her palms together and respectfully beseeched His Holiness the Buddha, “All along, we see that the face of you Buddha Master is always ruddy and glowing, revealing abundant energy and spirit. Why is a Buddha’s face so ruddy and moisturized?”
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III told a layperson nearby to read to the crowd a paragraph in the Ritual of Practicing the Dharma of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, The text says, “Visualize that in the high, empty sky above one’s head there are eight lions stepping on auspicious clouds. A widely broad treasure throne is carried on their backs. There are lotus flowers of different colors on the throne. Above the flowers there is a moon laid flat on the wheel. At the center of the flowers, there is a five-colored character Hong, emitting five-colored light. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III instantly appear. His face is like red coral and His body is like ivory-jade. The Buddha radiates red light and turns into the Great Vajradhara Buddha, with one head and two arms.”
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said, “Now you should know why a Buddha’s face is ruddy and moisturized!”
Baizhe said, “It is so infuriating that some demonic persons made deformation to say that the Buddha Master’s face had a filthy dark color and was ugly and filled with bad qi! They said that the Buddha Master used makeup to fake a holy one’s complexion and color. I feel very bad for their slandering words.”
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said, “It is correct that my facial color is not such a red color and is truly covered. Since some people are so pitiful to the extent of make such karma and today there are also such people among you here, I will let you all see the real face behind the veil, to see how filthy and dark it is. The purpose is that, after seeing that, some of you can avoid retribution of karmic sins causing one to devolve into one of the three lower realms.”
At that time, I imagined that it might be like the face-changing skill used in Sichuan Operas, occurring momentarily right after a word. So I was especially attentive to watch and notice, but the actual outcome was totally different. Rather, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III told dharma masters to fetch water in a big pail. Then, the towel used was rinsed clean in a basin. Then, His Holiness the Buddha repeatedly washed His face more than ten times. While washing the face, changes was already appearing gradually. After the face was washed clean, the crowd present were astounded with a round of wows. Some were stunned by the surprise, some were joyful beyond control, some were so excited with tears all over their faces, and the voices of praise continued without an end. Good heavens! There could even be such ruddy and beautiful facial complexion! That was more beautiful than a red coral!
Perhaps some people who were not present there may think that it was like the facial complexion in the photo taken after restoring youth. Then you will be greatly wrong. Instead, it was ruddier than peach flowers. Speaking in terms of the visage after restoring youth for comparison, the degree of the ruddy and moisturized complexion was eight to nine times stronger than the visage after restoring youth. Some people thought that completely surpassed the color of an extremely bright and beautiful red treasure coral and rendered such a feeling of tenderness, brightness, ruddiness, and beauty that appeared breakable by blowing air or a light touch.
Furthermore, people also saw thin, white facial light that represents one of the thirty-two major elegant marks of a Buddha. The light rays were a little over three inches long, waving, dancing, and trembling while emitting light, became shorter quickly, and disappeared in an instant. More than half of the people saw that the light rays turned longer and shorter, bended and then straightened, and appeared and disappeared all of a sudden. The phenomena seen by each person were different, but all were blessed by the emitted light. People at the scene were either uttering exclamation out of astonishment or intoxicated in the enchanting view of wonder.
At this time, the holy state of His Holiness the Buddha suddenly dawned on everyone. No wonder H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was able to invite Amitabha Buddha to transmit the dharma to Layperson Zhao Yusheng in person, revealing unprecedented accomplishment in such holy manifestation. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III truly possesses the inner nature of a Buddha that is immeasurably deep but was never shown to people who are always with Him. Not only there is not any filthiness, darkness, ugliness, or bad qi, rather, His Holiness the Buddha covered up the beautiful and gorgeous red color that transcends the entire world. Suppose that such beautiful and gorgeous red color unfounded anywhere in the world were not covered up, such miracle would definitely attract people to surround and watch. Then, how could His Holiness the Buddha live among the great masses!
If not due to the Buddha Master’s great loving compassion with the intention of causing demonic persons to create less sinful karma, we would not have had the opportunity to see the Buddha Master’s real facial appearance and complexion. As a result, supreme empowerment was bestowed on us. We are unable to express the excitement in our heart. We can only gratefully thank all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in the ten directions for the compassion and pity on us that enabled us to have the karmic affinity to see the Tathagata and listen to the true dharma!
What I wrote above are completely true facts without anything untrue. If I fabricated any false words, I would meet all kinds of malicious retribution, suffering, and misery and moreover would fall into the hell realm without any chance to get out. If what I said now is true, I will be free of disaster or hardship, live happily forever, and end the cycle of birth and death.
A Humble Buddhist Disciple: Guo Yuliang
December 30, 2017
We all experienced in person on the spot seeing the real Buddha face of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III that was in a red-coral color. The record written by Buddhist Disciple Guo Yuliang completely agrees with the facts, without a bit of exaggeration. More than three quarters of the people present had the karmic condition to see with their own eyes the thin, white facial light that represents one of the thirty-two major elegant marks of a Buddha come out from H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Our signatures follow. Because some people who did not sign their names at the time had already left the temple and returned to other countries, we will continue to obtain their signatures.
