The Explanation of the Buddha’s Title – “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III”
On April 3, 2008, a solemn and dignified first-publishing ceremony of a fact-recording book entitled H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, which published jointly by the World Buddhism Publishing LLC and the World Dharma Voice, Inc., was held at the Library of the Congress of the United States. The book was also formally accepted into the collection of the Library of the Congress of the United States. Only since that time, did people in the world know that Master Wan Ko Yee, who had been broadly respected by the great masses and who had also been known as Great Dharma King Yangwo Yeshe Norbu, had been recognized by the world’s leaders, regent dharma kings, and great rinpoches of Buddhism through official documents as the third incarnation of Dorje Chang Buddha, who is the primordial Sambhogakaya Buddha of the universe. The Buddha’s name is H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Since then, people began to address His Holiness the Buddha by “Namo Dorje Chang Buddha III.” This is similar to the situation that Sakyamuni Buddha’s name was Prince Siddhartha Gotama before attaining Buddhahood. However, after Sakyamuni Buddha had attained Buddhahood, His title changed to “Namo Sakyamuni Buddha.” That is why we now address His Holiness the Buddha as “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III”
In particular, on December 12, 2012, the Senate Resolution No. 614 of the United States Congress officially used “His Holiness” in the name addressing Dorje Chang Buddha III (That is to say, “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III”) Since then, the title and status of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has been definitive by nature. And, as a matter of fact, “Dorje Chang Buddha III” is a name used legally in governmental and official legislative documents. Therefore, the previously used respected name and titles such as “Wan Ko Yee,” Great Master, and Great Dharma King no longer exist.
Several decades ago, Elder Dharma King Dorje Losang approached the Great Dharma King seeking clarification on certain Buddhist questions that troubled living beings. Provided below are the English translations of these questions.
The elder Dharma king asked: Living beings have certain questions, which I would like to ask on their behalf. Great Dharma King and respected Master who is supreme, would you instruct us?
The Great Dharma King answers: If you have any questions, then raise them.
Q: What types of practitioners of Buddhism have the ability to successfully invoke nectar?
A: Those Holy Ones and Great Dharma Kings who have reached the level of a Buddha or Mahasattva.
Q: According to what the Great Dharma King just said, do all Dharma Kings within Vajrayana Buddhism have the ability to successfully invoke the Buddhas to bestow nectar?
A: Not all of them are able.
Q: Why are not all of them able?
A: It is not necessarily true that all Dharma Kings are able to successfully invoke nectar.
Q: What is the reason for this?
A: Since there are those who are Dharma Kings in name but who have not attained the realization of a Dharma King, they are, therefore, not true Dharma Kings. Naturally, they are unable to commune with the Buddhas. How, then, could nectar be bestowed?
Q: Can the present Dalai Lama successfully invoke the Buddhas to bestow nectar?
A: I have not heard it said that he has such ability.
Q: What is nectar?
A: Holy food that corresponds with the miraculous powers and great wisdom of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
Q: What is the function of nectar?
A: To plant the holy seeds of Vajra in order to realize enlightenment.
It can eliminate all karma one produced in this world. Ending the cycle of birth and death becomes as easy as turning one’s hand.
Q: How big is the difference in power between true nectar and the five types of nectar in this earthly world?
A: As big as the difference between the great ocean and a drop of water, between 10,000 miles and a small step. There is no comparison.
Q: What is the reason for this?
A: Those five types of nectar are called nectar. In fact, they are ordinary things of this world that are empowered by mantras. True nectar bestowed by the Buddhas is something sacred that has come from the realm of the Holy Ones and Buddhas. There is a world of difference. It is the difference between the ordinary and the sacred. How could they be mentioned in the same breath?
Q: Have there been any ordinary Rinpoches who have successfully practiced the nectar Dharma?
A: Throughout Buddhist history until the present, there has not been one.
Q: You are the Great Dharma King and Holy Master in our world. Could you invoke some nectar to empower everybody?
A. When certain causes and conditions of living beings mature, nectar will fall naturally. If the Buddhist practitioner does not possess enough merit, there will be no nectar. I am an ordinary practitioner of Buddhism. I do not have the ability to successfully invoke nectar.
Q: Then why did I personally see you successfully invoke the Buddhas to bestow nectar?
A: That was due to the fullness of merit of those who were able to partake of the nectar. I alone do not have the depth of realization to successfully invoke the Buddhas to bestow nectar.
Q: In this world, how many Rinpoches are able to successfully practice the Dharma of invoking the Buddhas to bestow true nectar?
A: All of those who have attained the realization of a true Dharma King can successfully practice it. Furthermore, they must practice it.
O: Is it unacceptable not to practice it?
A: It is unacceptable.
Q: Why is that?
A: With respect to the highest Dharma within Vajrayana Buddhism, the initiation of Ati Yoga, Great Perfection of the Vajra division, nectar is an indispensable holy element for cleansing one’s negative karma and is the resource for planting the seeds of Vajra. If the truc nectar Dharma is not practiced, then it is an ordinary initiation.
Q: The level of realization of Amang Nopu Pamu is extremely high. She is also able to successfully invoke nectar. Is she a Dharma King?
A: In order to successfully invoke the Buddhas to bestow true nectar, one must recite the holy mantras of a Dharma King, must put one’s hands in the mudra of a Dharma King, and must ascend to the throne of a Dharma King.
Q: I would like to ask if the Great Dharma King’s Buddha Dharma is any different from her Buddha Dharma?
A: The Buddha Dharma is the same. It is all passed down from the ancient Buddhas.
Q: Does the Great Dharma King study the Buddha Dharma with Pamu?
A: I have not seen her yet in this lifetime. Until now, I have not yet spoken to her. The Buddha Dharma is not the study of Buddhism. It does not contain the element of study. Only ordinary people of the world study it.
Q: Generally speaking, what is the Buddha Dharma?
A: It is cultivating yourself to live in accord with the law of cause and effect or karma. It is that simple. It is the same with nectar.
Q: What is the reason for that?
A: No reason. For example, you, Dorje Losang, have attained the position of an Elder Dharma King. However, your realization deepened and your beard grew only after you received empowerment from Pamu.
This is cause and effect.
Q: Can the Eight Great Rinpoches of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism successfully invoke the Buddhas to bestow nectar?
A: Even the Four Great Dharma Princes do not have such power.
Q: Why does each and every Rinpoche in today’s world have nectar pills?
A: This is correct, but such pills are ordinary things of this world, such as medicine or other things, that are empowered by adding shar-ira and chanting mantras. After such empowerment, they are called nectar or the five great pills.
Q: Thus, can 100 out of 10,000 Rinpoches successfully invoke nectar?
A: It would not be a disappointing result if there were only 1 out of 10,000 Rinpoches who can successfully invoke nectar.
O: If there are so few, how can they save living beings?
A: All 84,000 Dharma methods can be used to save living beings. As long as any method is the Buddha Dharma, it can be used to save living beings.
O: Which Dharma is the best and easiest method for attaining liberation?
A: It is best to learn the Dharma spoken by Sakyamuni Buddha and the Dharma of true Great Dharma Kings. In today’s world, the Buddha Dharma that can liberate living beings most easily can be found in Buddhist books which are composed of commentary and instruction by Amang Nopu Pamu!
O: Is there any usefulness in being initiated without real nectar?
A: There is usefulness in being initiated by ordinary Rinpoches. As long as it is the correct Buddha Dharma, accomplishment can be achieved.
Q: If accomplishment can be achieved through both real nectar and ordinary nectar, then why distinguish between real nectar bestowed by the Buddhas and nectar made from ordinary objects that have been empowered?
A: The difference lies in whether the accomplishment is great or small and the time it takes for such accomplishment. If one cultivates oneself according to the Dharma after having been initiated with real nectar, then one day of such cultivation would be better than 10 years, or even 20 or 30 years, of cultivation after having been initiated with ordinary nectar of this world. After having been initiated with real nectar, one can achieve in this lifetime the Three Bodies.
Q: Why are the initiations performed by many Rinpoches not called nectar initiations?
A: Nectar is the basic ingredient used in any initiation. This basic ingredient of nectar is then mixed with other things according to different tantra. Therefore, there are different names for various initiations.
Q: Are those who were able to receive an ordinary initiation also able to receive a true nectar initiation or a true nectar empowerment?
A: If one devotedly practices the Buddha Dharma and lives in accordance with Buddhism, then this will be clearly known by the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. When one has accumulated enough merit, a Great Dharma King will initiate such person with nectar bestowed by the Buddhas! I already told you. Everything is cause and effect.
