Our lineage is directly from Dorje Chang Buddha as brought to this world by Shakyamuni Buddha and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. See the Lineage Refuge Tree of the Buddha School as followed by the Holy Vajrasana Temple & Retreat Center. Find a summary of a discourse given by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha on the Buddha School at the website of the Xuanfa Institute.
All Buddhist lineages go back to Dorje Chang Buddha. The founders of several Tibetan sects reached a level of realization whereby they were taught directly by Dorje Chang Buddha. For example, both of the Matriarchs of the Tibetan Shangpa Kagyu, Lady Niguma and Lady Sukhasiddhi, rather quickly became enlightened in the tenth century and received the dharma followed by that sect. Learn how the various sects came into being and how the four major lineage traditions evolved over the milleniums.
In 2008, Zhaxi Zhuoma Rinpoche and other disciples met with H.H. Penor Rinpoche at his American retreat center in upstate New York and heard the former head of the oldest Buddhist lineage in Tibet praise H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III as being much higher than he was and that it was good that such a holy being would incarnate in these dharma-ending days. The Great Dharma King Rinpoche also told Zhaxi Zhuoma that her Buddha Master should manifest many miracles so that people would once again believe in the power of the Buddha-dharma. She has listed below some of the miracles that she personally experienced. Penor Rinpoche was one of the many great Buddhist leaders who recognized H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III as the third incarnation of the original samboghakaya Dorje Chang Buddha. A listing of several of the others and their letters of recognition and congratulation may be found below with more on the Xuanfa Institute website and in the treasure book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Click for more photos of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and events honoring His Holiness.
