Healing viday is one part of the Buddhism five vidyas. Healing vidya is not only the ability to heal the diseases of humans, but also the ability to fix or heal anything that goes wrong with any non-sentient things or any sentient beings. Whenever people mention H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu Holiest Tathagata’s accomplishments in the healing vidya, they all praise the incredible healing power of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III .
Venerable Long Zhi Tanpe Nyima Renpochi is one of the great disciples of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. He is at the side of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III all year round, serving as an attendant of His Holiness. He transcribes and organizes the recorded Dharma discourses of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. He has witnessed many holy miracle feats. He ever told two true stories about the greatest healing power of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III that he personally experienced at the spot.
“The first incident was when the Buddha Master wrote a poem on Chinese calligraphy paper for each of the ten faux jade plates. The calligraphy of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is a model for others, and His Holiness has formed his own style of writing. His calligraphy is elegant, exhibits no attachment, and is free from defilements of the mundane world. Every piece is exquisite.
In order to have the calligraphy carved on the giant wooden boxes containing the faux jade plates, I brought the Buddha Master’s original calligraphy to Kinko’s to make copies. I selected Kinko’s because their machine can make copies the size of four feet or larger. Because the calligraphy was on rice paper, which tends to be fragile, no matter how careful I was, when I got to the third piece of calligraphy, the inevitable thing still happened: The printer jammed the whole piece of paper. I asked the Kinko’s technician to turn off the machine. He tried really hard to get the paper out of the machine. It was all torn into pieces with ink smudges. The writing was badly torn and smudged. As a result, I dared not copy the rest. I then brought them back.
At that time, it was night already; yet, the Buddha Master was just having his lunch. The Buddha Master saw the pieces and said to me, “After I finish my meal, I will heal it.” It ended up that the Buddha Master cleaned the exquisite piece of calligraphy. His Holiness restored it to its original perfect condition. One couldn’t see that it was put together from pieces. I don’t know how the ink stains disappeared. The strange thing is that whenever raw rice paper comes into contact with water, the paper will loose its structure or disintegrate. How, then, was it possible for the Buddha Master to clean the ink stains that were already blended with the writing? Nevertheless, this was what happened!”
“The second incident happened in December of 1998. A fellow disciple, Heng Sheng Rinpoche from Taiwan, bought a printer that could print an A4size photo directly from a video camera. He brought it to Shenzhen to offer it to the Buddha Master, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. When it was brand new, we printed some photos and they came out great. At that time I was the only one who operated the machine. Later, all the prints came out with lines through them or with patches of color so that they no longer looked like photos. It was possible that I had accidentally touched a key somehow and reprogrammed the printer.
I followed the manual myself and tried to adjust it. It still didn’t work. The Buddha Master criticized me because of this. No matter how hard I tried, I still couldn’t make the machine get back to normal. With no more options, I called Heng Sheng Rinpoche and asked him to consult the manufacturer. The next day, we paid the manufacturer’s technician to make a special trip from Hong Kong to Shenzhen to fix the machine. In the beginning, the technician seemed very confident of himself. He didn’t seem to care much. Then, he started to get upset because after a long time of trying, the printout still looked the same as it did when I had tried earlier. When it was getting dark, he had to head back. If he stayed any longer, he would not be able to get back to Hong Kong. Before he took off, he said that this machine was the newest product of Mitsubishi and had just come out. This was the only one in the whole of south-east Asia. He couldn’t fix it. The only way was to take it back to the manufacturer’s headquarters in Japan.
Yet, we were in a hurry to print an A4 size photo with it. It was obvious that it would be too late to take it back to Japan for repair. Under such circumstance, the Buddha Master said to me, “Let’s check what’s wrong with it.” (This is roughly what His Holiness meant. I cannot recall exactly what His Holiness said.) The Buddha Master then sat on the sofa that was placed next to the wall. I sat on the floor, and the printer was placed right next to me. The Buddha Master was usually very busy. His Holiness would not normally do things like this. His Holiness first asked me how this machine worked. I reported to the Buddha Master about all the function keys on the machine, how they worked, and what numbers needed to be keyed in to print out a photo. Four sets of numbers were needed for each photo, and every set of numbers could have more than ten variations. The choices could go up into the hundreds. It was several times more complicated than a safety box combination. After the Buddha Master listened to this, His Holiness told me to key in a set of numbers. It still came out only lines.
Next, the Buddha Master told me another set of new numbers. After I keyed in the numbers, the print turned out better. Yet, we could still see colored lines. After the Buddha Master saw it, His Holiness had me again key in another set of new numbers. This time, when it printed half way, it was all black, like black paper. The Buddha Master uttered a roar, and said, “Good. Good. All right. It is successful!” I was puzzled. I thought, “Just this awful sheet of black paper? How can this be successful?” It was very strange because all the colors were gone, and only a mass of black was left. At this time, the Buddha Master said, “Hurry up and key in xx, xx, xx, xx.” After I keyed in these four sets of numbers, I immediately printed out the photo. Just when it came out a little bit, I already could see the true and beautiful colors of the photo. The result was exactly what the Buddha Master had predicted. It was a very good photo. The quality of the photo was the same as the one we printed out on the day the machine arrived. The most bizarre thing was that the Hong Kong technician and I also tried this set of numbers. However, why couldn’t it print out a photo at that time?
I remember very clearly this photo. It was a photo of the Buddha Master’s disciple, Daxila Rinpoche. Daxila Rinpoche is a Dharma King of the Kagyu Xueba sect. He is a solemn, great virtuous one who has reached a very high level of accomplishment. At that time, I wrote down those numbers on the back of the photo as a record.
Karmic conditions change constantly. It is a pity that I couldn’t take this memorable printer with me as I wished when I left Shenzhen. This has also proved the Buddha’s teaching: All conditioned phenomena are like a dream, an illusion, a bubble, and a shadow. I believe that this incident can give us much to ponder. First, this is a machine that had just been invented. Second, even the manufacturer’s technician could not fix it. Third, the Buddha Master only tried three times. In addition, His Holiness concluded that His Holiness would succeed after a piece of paper was printed out all black. This is foreseeing the future! This is the manifestation of the highest Buddha-dharma wisdom, complete proficiency in exoteric and exoteric Buddhism, and wondrous mastery of the Five Vidyas. What else can it be?”
I am truly grateful for Venerable Long Zhi Tanpe Nyima sharing these amazing Buddha Dharma manifestations. In Buddhism sutra said “The wisdom of the Buddha pervades everything”, it is so very true. Hope all sentient beings has the good karmic affinity to encounter the true Buddha Dharma, to cultivate themselves and reach liberation.
