Grass Mandala Naturally Grows Where Ultimate Bathing the Buddha Ceremony Was Held

Shortly after the Ultimate (Highest) Bathing the Buddha Dharma Assembly was held in May, a particular type of flower called “Auspicious Grass of the Four Jewels ” started growing directly in front of where the actual 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. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu explained that this was an offering from the Dharma Protecting Deities. The flowers had finished blooming when the picture on the right was taken, but you can still see the mound and how there is a different type of vegetation where the mandala formed. The lawn at this site had not been mowed since the ceremony in May. This is just another example of the holy states that manifested in conjunction with that great ceremony and around the activities of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu.
