In 2006 a manuscript copy of the book A Treasury of True Buddha-Dharma documenting a few of the accomplishments of H.H. Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu (Master Wan Ko Yee) was distributed to the leading Buddhist practitioners of various sects. These were incarnated Buddhas and Bodhisattvas who are greatly accomplished themselves. After reviewing the book, they were shocked. A number of them entered into a deep samadhi state and traveled to the dharma realms to investigate just who H.H. Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu really is while others came to the same conclusion just from reading the book. The final and published edition of this book reveals what they found and includes the certificates of recognition and congratulatory letters from many who responded. Never in the history of Buddhism has anyone received such a large number of recognitions and written congratulations from great dharma kings and rinpoches of the highest order in the world.
What they found was that H.H. Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu is the second incarnation of the famous layman Venerable Vimalakirti who was actually the second incarnation of the great Sambhogakaya Buddha Dorje Chang. H.H. Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu is Dorje Chang the Third–the leader of all Buddhas and the highest and greatest Buddha in the dharma realm. All dharma originated with Dorje Chang! No wonder the Buddha Master was able to accomplish so much in so short a time! No wonder the Buddha’s discourses can be considered sutras! They are sutras because this holy being is a Buddha–in fact, the primordial Buddha. Dorje Chang Buddha has come to this world for the third time to help restore the correct dharma as taught by Shakyamuni Buddha and to give us dharma methods that are suitable for our age and place. Shakyamuni Buddha only taught 30% of the Buddha-dharma that He possessed while He lived in this world. He taught Ananda additional and higher dharma so that Ananda could, in turn, teach Guru Padmasambhava, who brought the highest dharma to Tibet. Generally speaking, this world was simply not ready for the higher dharmas at that time.
This most extraordinary book detailing thirty categories of accomplishments of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and the recognition the Buddha has received from the most highly realized Buddhist Masters and leaders in the world today was published and released in April 2008 as H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and formally presented to members of Congress and their staffs, ambassadors, and other dignitaries at a special event sponsored by the Library of Congress, the Organization of American States, and the International Buddhism Sangha Association. This book is now available for the general public. The book reveals the true identity of this Buddha and how and why the Buddha came to this world.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III also contains the translation of a discourse by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III entitled “What Is Cultivation?” This is such a special transmission of dharma that when this discourse was being given, great holy beings from the dharma realms came to the mandala and blessed those present. This event as well as many other holy occurrences or miracles relating to the Buddha are also documented in the book and on this web site. Examples include turning ordinary water into Bodhi Holy Water that can heal and perform miracles; the bestowal of true holy nectar from the sky by the Buddhas; precious holy pills that chant, dance, fly, and increase; the appearance of magnificent Dharma Protectors; rainbow body states; and other evidence of enlightened activity. Many of this Buddha’s disciples are incarnations of great ancient virtuous ones.
The names of some of the leading Buddhists who provided testimonials about H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III along with brief biographies and pictures of who these living Buddhas and Bodhisattvas are can be found in Sixty Dharma Kings, et al.
The book demonstrates the outstanding, unprecedented, and complete mastery of exoteric Buddhism (the Tripitaka), esoteric Buddhism, and the Five Vidyas attained by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.
Although the Five Vidyas are simplistically defined as the Healing, Craftsmanship (art and technology), Sound, Causality (logic), and Inner-Realization, they really represent all that is good in the universe—the original or true nature of everything. Very briefly, they include fixing that which is broken, incomplete, or inferior; creating beauty or joy; all forms of communication by sentient and non-sentient beings or things; the relationship between cause and effect; and supernormal powers. The Five Vidyas are the manifestation of the powers and wisdoms of holy beings. These vidyas represent the realization of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas — they are the result of what holy beings do. They encompass everything seen and unseen, animate and inanimate in the universe that is beneficial to living beings. Everything in the universe can be classified into five aspects of brightness and darkness. That is the real meaning of the Five Vidyas. To develop everything that is good in the universe and that benefits living beings is classified as “bright,” while that which confuses and is evil is classified as “dark.”
The accomplishments of H.H. Dorje Chang III are not limited to the human realm or even to sentient beings. Animals and beings from other realms have taken refuge in the Buddha and come to listen to the Buddha’s discourses. The Buddha also takes mist from the air with His hand, puts it inside a hole in a sculpted boulder, and makes it stay there. Those who see this incredible holy work are amazed and blessed by it.
The book also explains the role that supernormal powers play in Buddhism and why Shakyamuni Buddha both manifested such powers and spoke against them. The book gives many examples of the use of supernormal powers by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, by His disciples, as well as by the other incarnations of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas who are mentioned in the book. Their brief biographies and the incarnated identities of some of them are also included in the book. This book is a treasure never before seen in the past several thousand years. It proves that the true Buddha-dharma expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha and this ancient Buddha does still exist in this world and that it is possible to obtain by all who want to learn it.
In this Dharma-Ending Age of such gross commercialism within religious institutions, one of the most amazing statements in the book is The Buddha’s personal vow that He will only benefit living beings and not accept any offerings. This Buddha actually supports many philanthropic causes as well as His disciples and temples through His own creative endeavors in art, businesses, innovations, etc. and not the reverse. His state of unselfishness is beyond imagination.
