I Did a Big Performance of Vajra Form during the Kuan Yin Great Compassion Empowerment Dharma Assembly.
On January 8, 2017, I attended a magnificent Kuan Yin Great Compassion Empowerment Dharma Assembly at Clovis, California, USA.
At the time of chanting the Six Character Great Bright Mantra and before the dharma assembly formally started, I already felt a magnetic field near me that caused my body to spontaneously waver left and right. Since I had attended other Kuan Yin Great Compassion Empowerment Dharma Assemblies before, my instinct was that Kuan Yin Bodhisattva and dharma protectors had already arrived at the mandala before the dharma assembly formally began.
After the dharma assembly formally begun, just as when I was attending other dharma assemblies in the past, my body naturally and spontaneously started to swing with big movements. Perhaps due to the amplitude of my movement, a few minutes later my body naturally fell to the ground. In the process of falling, I suffered no injury and did not have any pain. Furthermore, I immediately sat up firmly with my legs crossed. Next, I started to form all kinds of different mudras. With my hands spontaneously making various gestures, I did not understand what meanings these mudras stood for.
Shortly after, or about three to five minutes later, I got up and stood up for reasons I did not know, and the mudras I had been doing were made with even bigger and more out-reaching movements. Only at this time did I began to realize that I seemed to be practicing forms and postures of martial art. I never learned martial art before, but I knew that I was showing the stances and gestures of martial art. Not only my hands were gesturing, but also my feet were moving. My foot technique was very fine and delicate, with all kinds of bow steps, sliding steps, and dash steps to go forward, backward, and to the left and to the right. All were accomplished without hesitation! My hand and foot techniques were not quite like doing the Tai-Chi form. Rather, I felt that I was doing a Vajra form. Throughout the process, my eyes were closed. I was very surprised that, with such big movements of doing a martial-art form, I did not even collide with other people in my vicinity. Whenever my hands reached out and touched someone, the effect was like doing them a favor to press a puncture spot for the person and my hand would retreat right after pressing! During the entire period of between 20 to 30 minutes, I was continuously performing the form this way. When the master leading the dharma called out the end, I was already 7 to 8 meters (25 feet) away from the spot I originally stood at. My entire body was also completely wet, but both my body and mind were especially relaxed and pleasant!
When sharing my experience on the podium, I jokingly said that I was like the Kung Fu Panda in the movie, who had no knowledge about Kung Fu at all but was able to do powerful fighting forms. All my movements were not executed by my mind consciousness but, rather, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas guided and led me through my sub-consciousness step by step to do all these. On my part, I did not think or resist at all and just did what I was instructed without asking why! In this way, I felt and received very great empowerment. The power of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas are really so great.
A few days later, while at the H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Cultural and Art Museum, I saw with my own eyes that Zhaxi Zhuoma Rinpoche, who led this dharma assembly, bought many Buddhist books with the donations received from the dharma assembly. The purpose is to benefit people who are currently serving their jail sentences in prisons, so that they can also learn the great and absolutely true Buddha-dharma! This act of truly benefiting living beings was the ending practice concluding the dharma assembly!
Abstain from everything that is evil and do everything that is good. Do not kill living beings. Rather, we shall save and release living beings in danger and captivity!
I am grateful to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!
I am grateful to the greatly compassionate Kuan Yin Bodhisattva!
I am grateful to all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in the ten directions!
