See My Home – A Chinese Painting By H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

See My Home – A Chinese Painting By H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

The first time I saw this Chinese ink painting, I cried from the bottom of my heart. What a wonderland beyond this world, how I wish I could live there! It gave me the deep impression of otherworldliness, leisureliness and tranquility. This place is not for ordinary people, it is the place for the holy hermits living untethered from the world. The painting seems like a clear spring flowing through my body and purifying my soul. People have said: a good painting is like a fine poem, like a beautiful song. Looking at this transcendental art piece, I could hear the elegant Chinese classic music “River flowing down from the tall mountain”, and see the gentle pleasant whisper of the clouds sweeping through the forest. It also reminds me one of the Cold Mountain’s poem:

Clambering up the Cold Mountain path,
The Cold Mountain trail goes on and on:
The long gorge choked with scree and boulders,
The wide creek, the mist blurred grass.
The moss is slippery, though there’s been no rain
The pine sings, but there’s no wind.
Who can leap the world’s ties
And sit with me among the white clouds?

Here you can see the artist combined different kinds of painting skills: center brush-tip technique, side brush-edge technique, large-scale freehand brush work, splash-ink technique and fine brush stroke. The mountain scenery was painted with black ink and heavy hues of green. This artwork not only preserves traditional painting skills but also manifests the realistic effect of modern Western oil paintings.

In Chinese paintings, it is very difficult to apply the perspective technique, with its three-dimensional look, to paintings in which the center brush-tip technique is used to express scholarly charm. However, this painting combines four different elements: the three-dimensional perspective technique together with the scattered perspective technique, the splash-ink technique with lines freehand brushwork, and realism. Attributes from both Chinese and Western paintings form a single stylish charm. It depicts a pristine rural setting, a land accompanied by mountain, river, sun and moon spirits. One regards a place as home when one has cherished feelings toward the local customs and conditions of that place. Wouldn’t you like such a home?

This painting is in permanent collection of The International Art Museum of America.

Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang’s Paintings and Achievements

Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang’s Paintings and Achievements

Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is a world-renowned painter. Throughout Asia, she is the only artist to whom the New York Academy of Art conferred the title of international preeminent artist of first class standing. 

The art world has classified the quality of ink painting into four different levels: Class of Proficiency, Class of Wonderment, Class of Divinity, and Class of Ease. Artwork of the Class of Proficiency has the ability to present a resemblance of objective reality, achieving likeness in form. This is the first stage of artistic creation. The art world calls it the stage of sketching. This is a stage that an artist cannot skip, yet they also cannot remain at this status quo, because this is an elementary stage. The next level is the Class of Wonderment. Artworks of this Class demonstrates highly skilled techniques. The artist is able to paint anything at will without revealing any trace of effort. However, one also cannot remain stagnant at this stage.

The next level after the Class of Wonderment is the Class of Divinity where the art carries likeness of ‘form’ and likeness of ‘spirit.’ In ink painting, the highest state of accomplishment is the Class of Ease where the artist attains natural ease by using simple brushstrokes to fully capture the form. With the most succinct brushwork and the most superb technique, the artist depicts objective reality and attains a state of miraculousness where both form and spirit are fully captured. This is the kind of art that viewers never get tired of appreciating; it leaves a wonderful aftertaste. There are only about a dozen people in the history of art who have attained such a class.

 In 2008, the United States Congress exhibited her sculptures and paintings in the Gold Room in the Rayburn Congressional Building which received rave reviews. Professor Stephen Farthing of the University of the Arts in London, United Kingdom, determined that “Professor Wang’s paintings reach across cultures to celebrate the space that exists intellectually and emotionally between representation and abstraction, between a fact and an idea…Dr. Wang’s paintings may draw heavily on the traditions of Eastern art, but they present themselves as extraordinarily Western ideas and images.”

in 2013, out of the works of all painters, the World Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers and Associations (WFUCA) awarded the title “WFUCA2013” to the artworks of Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang. In 2020, the United States National Commission for UNESCO Clubs, Centers, and Associations conferred on her the “International First-Class Artist” title along with the issuance of a certificate and badge.

In 2019, When Professor Wang’s solo exhibition was held at the Shanghai Exhibition Center that used to be the Sino-Soviet Friendship Building, a record-breaking number of people visited the show. The Museum Director Wu Shufang stated that the museum had never experienced such an overwhelming number of visitors since its official opening, and for this exhibition, they had to post notices to limit admission. Same year, she held a solo exhibition, titled One Flower, Two Worlds at the Louvre in Paris in 2019 and created a sensation in French art circles. This exhibition showcases 27 of Professor Wang’s extraordinary artworks each of which has reached the height of the Class of Ease.

More than 200 distinguished members of society, artists, collectors, entrepreneurs, and art lovers attended the exhibition opening; including representatives from French museums, professors from French art institutes, French nobilities, renowned artists, celebrities, representatives from auction houses, art critics and journalists from major news media. They all marveled at the artworks and expressed their praises. They considered this an unprecedented experience for French people.

Simply put, the artistry of Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang has attained the highest level of artistry in ink painting which is the Class of Ease. One of Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang’s paintings Pomegranates in a Basket realized a top auction price of US$1.27 million at the Gianguan Auction House in New York on March 13 of 2019. It clearly shows that the art of Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is recognized by art collectors and people of foresight alike.

Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is the Lifetime Honorary Chairwoman of the International Art Museum of America. The museum has a dedicated gallery exhibiting her artworks. Her paintings encompass a broad range of styles and subject matters, including landscapes, animals, flowers, birds, and so forth, all of which have reached the summit of world class artistic excellence. Based on her lotus and water lily paintings, artists have acclaimed that Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang is the foremost lotus painter of all times. No artist in the past would have been able to surpass her accomplishment, and her works will continue to inspire generations to come. Among all notable lotus painters, her skills are extremely profound, substantial, and masterful, and she is among the most distinguished artists in history. Her artistic achievement has reached perfection at the summit of the “ten ultimate artistries.”

The well-known saying, “Deeply hidden talent not easily revealed” aptly describes Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang’s morality and inner refinement. The characteristics of an artist’s paintings essentially reflect the character of the painter. From the paintings below you can find humility, inner peace, harmony and noble morality of professor Wang.

Golden Lotuses

The approach of Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang to draw flowers in gold and create leaves with splashed watery ink exhibits high elegance, great beauty, and lovely simplicity. The technique of Professor Yuhua Shouzhi Wang to paint lotus flowers in varying degrees of darkness and lightness enables her to represent fully a striking charm in both tone and form. Every stroke is lively, vigorous, graceful, and without the slightest air of affectation. Applying mature and seasoned artistry, she fully displays on paper her unfettered, natural, unattached state of mind. The brushwork was completed with ease and spontaneity, free of any inhibition. The atmosphere is strong but very elegant and pure. This entire painting provides much comfort to the eyes.

Springtime Snow-White Plum Blossoms as Pure as Jade

Tiles Designed by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

Tiles Designed by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

Extremely beautiful and glittering jewel-like floor tiles covered all the hall ways and open areas at the first floor of the The International Art Museum of America (IAMA). H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, the artist, wielded his brush and applied colors to create those gorgeous and resplendent as gemstones and with rustic, charming tiles. So ordinary people could replace common tiles, marble, and granite slabs in the old style, and enjoy the splendor of earthly mansions and the beauty of heavenly palaces.

Tiles displayed in the Collection of The International Art Museum of America (IAMA)

When you see these four tiles with gemstone patterns, it seems there is nothing more to say other than they give you a feeling of beauty and naturalness. However, as soon as you realize they are actually four paintings, you will marvel at them in a state of perplexity. All of them are indeed paintings in patterns of jade. They are representative of works that belong to the “Chaoshi” (super fine) style of painting. Starting clockwise from the top left, they are Dragon-Scale Jade, Autumn Aqueous, Fortune Vase Jade, and Yellow Loveliness Jade. Their patterns, watery tone, luster, and moist appearance are completely the same as those of natural jade objects. Such accomplishment clearly shows the calligraphic and painting mastery of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III in the style of “Chaoshi.”

In The H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Cultural and Art Museum, has more many different color-painted tiles on display. They all completely resemble natural stones in terms of color, luster, grain, and aesthetic impression. These tiles can be classified into six main categories: the Rustic Elegance Collection, the Lyrical Charm Collection, the Luxurious Gem Collection, the Serene Nobility Collection, the Contemporary Distinction Collection, and the Heavenly Stone Collection.

In many world-class building and decoration material exhibitions held in the United States, China, and elsewhere, the tiles created by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III have each time attracted the greatest stream of people. They have been appraised as being the best tiles in the world. Those who view them, including experts in the same trade, marvel at and highly praise the beauty before their eyes, smiling as they bask in the pleasure of the moment. The tiles created by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III are judged by everyone to be the highest-class, most beautiful, and most elegant decorative material in the world today.

Art Frames that Truly Complement Paintings

Art Frames that Truly Complement Paintings

From ancient times to the present, the art of making frames has existed in the East, the West, regions of different nationalities, among the general population and within imperial palaces. There have been many kinds of frames for pictures, paintings, and other forms of art. There are truly unique, beautiful, and elegant art frames displayed in International Art Museum of America, located in San Francisco downtown, that I never seen at anywhere else before.

H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, the artist created sculpted art frames in the style of various natural elements. Examples of this include frames made in the style of ganoderma lucidum (a type of hard dark brown fungus supposed to possess supernatural powers), tropical plants that wind around trees, coral, ancient-looking unearthed cultural relics, white and green jade, and winding vines, faux withered vines, faux tree roots, faux white jade, faux old wood, faux spotted jade, faux ganoderma lucidum, faux red coral, etc. All frames there are artistic fascinating.

The ganoderma lucidum art frames are formed by putting together many of those hard mushroom-type fungi. Of course, such frames are not composed of real ganoderma lucidum. Rather, the ganoderma lucidum in such frames are created from carving and application of colors. The shapes of the Ganoderma lucidum are connected together on the wooden frame to form an exquisite, integrated shape. Those ganoderma lucidum have the same color, air, and shape of real ganoderma lucidum. Furthermore, rare thousand-year-old ganoderma lucidum, old hundred-year-old ganoderma lucidum, and new tender Ganoderma lucidum are interconnected to form an elegant and charming appearance. Many ganoderma lucidum mushroom caps and mushroom stems are interconnected in a beautifully rhythmic manner. The interchange between substance and emptiness, highness and lowness, largeness and smallness, and thickness and thinness creates a highly elegant appearance. 

Reishi Mushroom art frame was sculpted and painted with oil colors. It captures the form and texture of reishi mushrooms and has the gracefulness of an aged cultural relic.

The faux green jade art frames have an ancient-looking green jade color to them that is steady and elegant. This color is not stale or old-fashioned in the least. Rather, it is a natural combination of refined blackish green and sprightly verdant, although there is not much verdant hue. This color expresses the essence of old jade that has slowly matured over thousands of years, with a vigorous and spirited quality that is clearly seen. This refined green jade color will every now and again reveal a lustrous white, like the color of the feathers of immortal cranes. Such a mixture of hues truly transcends all traces of the mundane. The color green alone could be further divided into many different types based upon its various hues. There is aged green, light green, blackish green, glossy dark green, pastel green, verdant, fresh green, deep green, translucent green, etc. There actually are countless gradations of green in these art frames, all of which are natural looking. All of these various shades of green interconnect and interact so naturally there is not the slightest sign they were created by man. Therefore, it is difficult to fathom how the creator of these frames could harmonize these colors so masterfully, fittingly, flawlessly, and beautifully.

Faux emerald-jade art frame has the pattern, color watery tone, and texture of real jade

This is a faux natural tree-root art frame, has the pattern, color, and texture of real tree roots

Each and every detail of the frames in the museum, expresses an extremely natural quality in both form and spirit. Some frames are devoid of the dark spots or broken parts that natural objects have after being exposed to wind, frost, rain, and snow. His Holiness has developed to a perfect degree the depiction of the fleeting beauty that natural treasures display during their growth process. Simply put, the worth and prestige of any painting mounted to those frames will increase tremendously.

Na Mo Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva

Na Mo Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva

A Chinese Painting of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva

GuanShiYin (Avalokitasvara) Bodhisattva is a well-known Buddhism figure in China and southeastern Asian. Actually the influence of Buddhism has reached to western countries as well. In my yoga class at San Francisco, the teacher often play music that chanting the name of Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva in English version.

Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva is a Bodhisattva at the level of marvelous enlightenment, which means possessing the marvelous enlightenment of a Buddha. That is, the Bodhisattva is one of the great holiness and virtue who is no difference from a Buddha. As recorded in sutras, Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva is the incarnation of an ancient Buddha called True Dharma Brightness Tthagata and is the king of great compassion. The Bodhisattva is incessantly busy day and night helping all humans and other living beings in Three Spheres and has accumulated boundlessly vast merit.

There are many different kinds of status and portraits of Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva in the world. In China, Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva is generally portrayed as a young woman wearing a flowing white robe, and usually also necklaces symbolic of Chinese royalty. In her left hand is a jar containing pure water, and the right holds a willow branch. The crown usually depicts the image of Amitabha Buddha.

At International Art Museum of America, there is a chinese painting of Na Mo Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, the artist is H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. It gave me a really deep impression – Amazingly beautiful portrait. It is a fine brush stroke traditional Chinese painting. The painter used very fine and complicated strokes, all the details were vivid and perfectly presented. I can clear see the hair, the crown, all the small part of the jewelry, even the delicate pattern of the flowing strings. Through those details I can feel the painter’s expression of Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva’s meticulous compassion and love for all living beings. The whole portrait looks lifelike with infinite grace. The artist’s superb artistic skills is beyond perfection.

The great art work not only gives people artistic enjoyment, but also an experience of spiritual encounter. I stood in front of the painting for a long time, and I felt like forgetting about all worldly affairs and emerging into the Bodhisattva’s boundless compassion for ever and ever…

Da Mo Zu Shi, A Chinese Painting Appreciation

Da Mo Zu Shi, A Chinese Painting Appreciation

Patriarch Bodhidharma (Da Mo Zu Shi) was the most legendary master in Chinese Zen Buddhism history, and he’s been well known in China. When I was young, my grandmother used to tell me the folk tales of Patriarch Bodhidharma. I’ve always wondered what Patriarch Bodhidharma looked like.

One day in International Art Museum of America, I saw a painting of Da Mo Zu Shi, the artist is H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. It gave me a really deep impression — A majestic black-faced holy monk, seemingly quiet but reflecting unparalleled spiritual power, seems to have traveled through thousands of years of time and space, and suddenly appeared in front of me.

This painting, drawn in the freehand style, was created from only a small number of brush strokes. The point of view of the picture, the thick and imposing character modeling, and the simple and rich color application endow the picture with an ancient and muddy artistic style. 

Through the artist’s seasoned brushwork, this painting captures the natural essence of all things. Let’s look at some specific parts of the picture. Bright eyes shine under the dark eyebrows like full autumn moons. The mouth seems to breathe with the grandeur of eternity.

Hair, eyebrows, and beard are painted with brush strokes like scraping iron; the facial contours of the characters are drawn with iron lines, and the brushwork is refined and powerful. At the bottom of the picture is the robe of the patriarch, made by heavy and strong brushwork.

This artistry, devoid of the slightest affectation, shows the natural ease with which the artist wields the brush when creating calligraphy and paintings. It is the essence of Zen, the truth of the universe, naturalness that is free of attachment.

Patriarch Bodhidharma was the twenty-eighth generation descendant of Zen Buddhism. About a thousand years ago, he came to China. He crossed the mountains and deserts on foot, and crossed the rivers with a reed raft. 

Upon reaching China, the Patriarch met a monk named Huike. At that time, Master Huike was quite famous but still an ordinary monk, not having reached enlightenment. Due to a series of misunderstandings, Master Huike believed that the Patriarch Bodhidharma was insulting the scriptures of Buddhism, and thus he assumed he must be a devil. So Huike was ready to denounce Patriarch Bodhidharma.

Master Huike had a chain of iron beads hanging around his neck. He took it off and threw it at Patriarch Bodhidharma with all his strength. This act of violence caught his target by surprise, knocking out his two front teeth.

Naturally, the Patriarch’s first reflex was to spit out his broken teeth. But he was an Arhat at the time, which meant that should his teeth touch the ground, there would be a three year drought. To spare the common people from this disaster, he swallowed his broken teeth and left without saying a word. His actions showed great compassion and forbearance. 

Humbled by the Bodhidharma’s strength of character, Master Huike followed the patriarch, becoming his disciple, and, eventually, the second generation of Zen master in China.

The portrait of the Patriarch seems to exhale a holy breath, which lightens the lives of all those around it. It expresses the original nature of Zen, eternal and immutable. Those who view it have experienced a great spiritual encounter, which brings about a subtle but powerful change in their lives.

Random Thoughts From Watching Van Gogh immerse

Random Thoughts From watching Van Gogh Immerse

This Christmas break, I went to see the Van Gogh Immersive exhibit in downtown San Francisco. It was a unique, moving, delightful and expansive experience It was my first time to see the artworks of Van Gogh, and the show was a great window on the artists work, creatively put together and nicely presented.

The show inspired me to find out more information and artworks by him. I found that Van Gogh was generally considered one of the greatest of the Post-Impressionists. The striking color, emphatic brushwork, and contoured forms of his work powerfully influenced the current style of Expressionism in modern art. Van Gogh was a pioneer in the movement of impressionism by applying a mix of brilliantly colorful, vigorous brushstrokes. I like his sunflower paintings. Van Gogh’s paintings of Sunflowers are among his most famous. Those sunflower paintings felt so bright and warm, and they had a special significance for Van Gogh: they communicated ‘gratitude’. 

From the internet, I also found a very interesting article that compared Van Gogh’s sunflowers with other artists, titled Vincent van Gogh, Qi Baishi, and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Compared. Whose Artwork is the Best? Written by Jiguang Lin.

I was really impressed by the comparison conclusion :

“When those art critics carried out the detailed research of the Sunflowers by Van Gogh and Qi Baishi as well as H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, the critics tried to copy the artworks by all three artists. After copying the works by Van Gogh and Qi Baishi, they felt deeply that through hands-on practice, they indeed gained more understanding of their works. It would not be easy but not so difficult either for one to really reach their artistic level. As for the Sunflowers by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, they found it rather difficult to copy.  Even though they tried many times, they had a hard time just copying the form, let alone the spirit.

The author concluded, “The Sunflowers by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III clearly showed the artist’s solid foundation and prolific skills in the Eastern and Western painting traditions. They comprise the essences in both traditions and display a brushwork, sentiment and colors that are one of a kind. The color tones and brushstrokes are rich, dense, soothing and elegant. Lively brushwork paints an animated charm that is whole, evincing a miraculous and expansive spirit and aura as well as a strong vitality. As for the Sunflowers oil painting in which H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III depicted some flowers inside a vase, the artistry is extraordinary and full of variations; the composition is simple yet abstruse. The flowers are natural and gracious, such that they give an impression of unpredictability, reaching a state of oneness with the universe and emanating a sharp animated spirit.

The ink-wash painting Sunflowers by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has an uninhibited, natural, and spontaneous brushwork that is dense, bold, and robust, but also elegant and agile. It exhibits a charm that is like stone and bronze inscriptions. Overall, the whole painting manifests a harmonious and moving imagery, naturally emanating a lively vivaciousness and a carefree, spirited aura”.

By Van Gogh
By H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

The author of the article Mr. Lin mentioned he purposely visit the International Art Museum of American in San Francisco, which has a great deal of collection of the art works by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. The very next day I visited the museum, which was also free admission. I was profoundly impressed by the grand and beautiful art works in the museum. There are various artworks that are created with different kinds of material. Some are bold and forthright, some are charmingly meticulous and astounding. The oeuvre is not made up of just one single style. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has independently originated sixteen unique schools of painting. Many famous painters spent their entire lives focusing on one kind of artistic subject or theme in order to establish their own school of that one style. Besides the different kinds of paintings, there are some other art works in the museum such as carvings, Chinese calligraphy, painted tiles, splendid jade, and unique art frame has the color and texture of tree root, they are all created by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III as well. These truly are the manifestation of Buddha’s supreme wisdom.

H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and Van Gogh have different perspective of the Creation of Art, the motivation of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s creation comes from the desire to make the most perfect artistic treasure to the world. Van Gogh’s quote: “Art is to console those who are broken by life”.

ARTISTIC ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF H.H. DORJE CHANG BUDDHA III


ARTISTIC ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF H.H. DORJE CHANG BUDDHA III

H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

The accomplishments and contributions of H.H.  Dorje Chang Buddha IIIare extremely comprehensive. The book entitled H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III published in 2008 shows some of the accomplishments of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III in thirty different main categories. Within the one category of painting and calligraphic artistry alone, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III  has created Chinese paintings, oil paintings, different styles of calligraphy, etc. In addition to being able to paint in the styles of the currently existing schools of painting, such as the Realism School, the Abstract School, the Line School, the Impressionist School, and other schools, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has independently originated sixteen unique schools of painting. They are called: 1) the Chaoshi School; 2) the Chouxiang Yunwei School; 3) the Wenfeng School; 4) the Fangfa School; 5) the Menglong School; 6) the Xiangtong School; 7) the Fanjuan School; 8) the Puomo Xiantiao Xiezhen School; 9) the Weiyin School; 10) the Fanpu School; 11) the Miaoxie School; 12) the Puomo Weiyun School; 13) the Kuangxi School; 14) the Yousi School; 15) the Banqi School; and 16) the Houdui Sekuai School (Thickly Piled Patches of Color School).

Many famous painters spent their entire lives focusing on one kind of artistic subject or theme in order to establish their own school of that one style. However, not only did H.H.  Dorje Chang Buddha III found sixteen schools of painting, He also developed the style of each school to a state of perfect artistry. This has naturally resulted in the distinct school of painting called “The H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III School of Multiple Styles,” which no painter in history can match!

At the fourth session of the World Poets and Culture Conference held in Hungary in 1994, more than 5,600 experts and scholars representing 48 countries and regions unanimously approved conferring upon H.H.  Dorje Chang Buddha III the title “Distinguished International Master,” which has an honorific status comparable to a head of state. The certificate was signed by Sir Juan Antonio Samaranch, the then President of the International Olympic Committee.

On February 10, 2004 the Royal Academy of Arts of the United Kingdom conferred upon H.H.  Dorje Chang Buddha III the title of “Fellow,” a title never before conferred in the history of that academy. The Royal Academy of Arts in the United Kingdom was founded in 1768 by the then King of Britain, George III. That academy has received the patronage and support of the royal family up to this day. Professor Phillip King, President of the Royal Academy, awarded the Certificate of Fellow to H.H.  Dorje Chang Buddha III at the British Embassy in Washington, DC. The cultural counselor of the embassy attended the award ceremony in person. Professor Phillip King said, “This is the first artist to receive this title in the more than 200-year history of the Royal Academy of Arts in the United Kingdom.”

Since the year 2000, paintings by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III  have repeatedly broken price records in art markets, selling for the highest prices for paintings by any living artist. The market price has now reached more than US$1,000,000 per square foot. Moreover, market prices recorded at international art auctions and evidence of sales prove that limited release copies of paintings by H.H.  Dorje Chang Buddha III are sold at the world’s highest prices, reaching over US$380,000 each, thus surpassing copies of paintings by Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, and other extremely famous painters in the world.

Many works of art by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III are exhibited at the International Art Museum of America, which is a non-profit public-benefit art museum located in downtown San Francisco in the United States. Furthermore, the International Art Museum of America is offering to buy paintings by H.H.  Dorje Chang Buddha III in the style of the Thickly Piled Patches of Color School at a price of over US$1,000,000 per square foot.

Master Wan Ko YeeH.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III)Has Made A Great Contribution To Art

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[1] 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.

However, the news below was published before the Buddha’s title of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was publicly announced. At that time, people did not know about the true status of His Holiness the Buddha. Therefore, to respect the true history, we still kept the names used before the title of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was legitimately determined in republishing this news. However, all must clearly know that the only legitimate name of His Holiness the Buddha is H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and all other names used before the legitimate determination no longer exist.

material into the form of an oval boulder, which is then carved hollow.
