Zhaxi Zhuoma Rinpoche recalls several holy manifestations and unusual supernormal events that she personally witnessed after following her Buddha Master, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. Many other students have other similar experiences and are included in books and various articles reported elsewhere on this website. It must be noted that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III does not encourage or advocate practicing any form of supernatural power and is very modest about His own abilities. He is constantly warning us not to be attached to these states and experiences, but to instead practice our cultivation and develop our morality, concentration, and wisdom.

  • When I could not understand why I was asked to do something (although, of course, I did what was asked), several unrelated events occurred that explained why this was so.
  • After receiving a small blue “Return-to-Youth Pill”, my hair changed from white to the original light brown of my youth. I even let my hair grow, just to see for sure.
  • I saw three-colored nectar suddenly manifested in a freshly washed bowl after a group of us disciples chanted mantras. Click for news article.
  • My students have also seen and even received advice from certain holy beings. Several of my students have had the Buddha Master appear and bless them.
  • I have never seen the Buddha not be able to answer any question asked of him.
  • On a special occasion, the Buddha Master blessed me and after that a diamond formed on my head that would turn bright red and pulsate from time to time. This also happened when I read the Buddha Master’s discourses, but other times as well.
  • “Once, when in Washington, D.C., preparing to introduce the book H. H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, to various congressional staff, I saw a very large bright neon pink light jump from tree to tree across a field from where I was staying. Earlier that morning and at other times, I would see bright yellow lights flash when I was doing dharma work for the Buddha Master. They were like the lights that flashed when the discourse What Is Cultivation? was first transmitted.” Click for article on this event.
  • I saw rainbow “jewels” appear on a holy site where many inner-tantric initiations had been held and where “Auspicious Grass of the Four Jewels” had grown. Click for news article.
  • After having a minor stroke, I was again healed so as to be able to go on a strenuous trip to visit all fifty states in the U.S.
  • On several occasions, I have seen pillars of light descend from the heavens, sometimes being able to capture them on digital cameras.
  • I have seen nectar fall several times and places, the first being in southern California under a certain magnolia tree and the last under that same tree after it had been moved to Hua Zang Si, a temple in San Francisco. It also rained under a flowering jacaranda tree on the veranda where students performed skits and other shows in honor of the Buddha Master’s birthday. Click for news  article.
  • I have seen students practice the tummo (inner heat or fire) dharma and raise their body temperature to very high levels–even high enough to burn the fingers of those who touched a metal bowl lying on the student’s stomach. Click for article.
  • I have seen sacred seed syllables form on the bodies of students and holy ones.
  • I have had my crown opened as documented by a MRI devise. Read article on this miraculous event.
  • Several very large koi fish came and did a dance for the Buddha Master in the pond at the Holy Vajrasana Temple & Retreat Center in Sanger. Schools of fish also followed the Buddha Master around as He toured a Japanese garden south of San Francisco and Dragon Fish came to pay respect to the Buddha when he gave a discourse in Thailand.
  • A vajra pill sang and danced while I held it.
  • I saw a particular type of flower called “Auspicious Grass of the Four Jewels” grow directly in front of where the Ultimate Bathing the Buddha ceremony took place. The flowers had four distinct very thin parts. They grew in a particular pattern and formed a perfect circle. Prior to the Dharma Assembly the area was perfectly flat. After the ceremony, the ground became slightly elevated, forming a mound upon which these special flowers grew. These flowers grew no other place in the yard. Click for news article.
  • Another red vajra pill flew from my hand to a holy place and was recovered and empowered by the Kalachakra Vajra, a manifestation of Shakyamuni Buddha. The pill danced in my hand and also in a clear stupa where it remains. It continues to dance in the stupa from time to time. Click for article.
  • An old metal pole started shaking quite violently at the temple and over time was joined by four more poles. Sometimes the shaking is constant, sometime it seems to pulsate as if sending coded messages. Others report seeing various lights or feel energy emanating from these poles. Pilgrims travel from all over the world to see these poles. Click for article. Also see many news articles of pilgrims visiting the poles.
  • Many light beings from other realms appear and can sometimes be seen by the naked eye and sometimes only on video or digital recordings at the temple in Sanger. Visitors to the temple have also seen and recorded them. Click for photos.
  • The Buddha Master was able to transfer His energy to me and enable me to raise my temperature after it continued to decline to dangerous levels.
  • I saw the beautiful and amazing relics or sharira from a special close disciple of the Buddha Master. Click for article.
  • A colored mandala was written on top of a large flat stone. After dharma was done, the stone was removed and the same mandala had been transferred through the stone and appeared on a bed of sand beneath the stone. This I saw done twice. The second time a pile of mixed various colored sands was placed below the stone, but were sorted out into seed characters after the dharma was performed on the stone. Click for photo.
  • I experienced the elimination of dark karma by having the Buddha Master’s magical Dharma Wheel placed on my chest. I could not bear the heat of the small metal object, but the Buddha Master picked it up with no problem. Click for news article.
  • I saw the Buddha Master change very quickly from an old beaten and bruised person to His usual self. This happened after the Buddha Master had predicted what would happen the previous day. An even more amazing transformation from an old man to a handsome youth happened and was was documented more recently. Click for more.
  • I saw the Buddha Master turn blue during an empowerment ceremony. I did not know at the time that He was an incarnation of Dorje Chang Buddha who is blue. Click for article.

  • I saw my roommate and another rinpoche lift a pool of water weighing over two tons with only the power of their mantras at the Ultimate Bathing of the Buddha Dharma Assembly. Click for more.
  • I have seen the consciousness of my relatives and those of my students raised to a higher level. One western student’s mother (who was not a Buddhist) had the Buddha Master come to help her go to the Pure Land. Click for news article.
  • I was there when a very young rinpoche took a vow that she would become accomplished in a very short period of time after she had received a Prajna Empowerment and she did.
  • I saw the Buddha Master create incredible works of art in very short periods of time. Some even contained a permanent fog or mist. Click for photo.
  • I have seen many, many Buddha Lights appear around both the sun and the moon prior or after or during special dharma assemblies or events.
  • I saw an antique wooden statue of Kuan Yin emit golden light after another dharma of selection ceremony. This time I shook a large container of long bamboo sticks. Each stick had a certain number that corresponded to a given outcome. I did this three or four times for each event and each time the results for each time I shook the sticks was the same AND exactly what the Buddha Master had predicted. I witnessed variations on this dharma many times.
  • I received a dharma of selection whereby I printed a number of outcomes on small pieces of paper for a major life decision that I was about to make; rolled these pieces of paper into tight rolls; placed these rolls in a round vase, and then asked to shake the vase and remove one. I rerolled it and replaced it doing this at least three times. Each time, I drew the same answer, which was the answer the Buddha Master gave me in the beginning.
  • I was present when various colored sharira appeared in a cloud of nectar.
  • I experienced a “freak” rain of hail one summer in Los Angeles that only rained where the Buddha Master was staying and right after a speech given by the Buddha Master that had forecasted such an event.
  • I saw sand from the Ganges River in India assemble to form strands of hair that created a three-dimensional crown on certain images of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha and Shakyamuni Buddha to prove that they were both incarnations of Buddhas.
