Buddhism originated in India, but then encountered dharma disasters and was entirely exterminated there. The Buddhism in modern India is the result of many other countries’ monks’ tireless efforts of giving back since 19th century (1).
Buddhism entered China, and was subsequently transmitted into Korea and Japan. After going through persecution in four dynasties under four emperors, even though it wasn’t entirely extinct, most holy sutras and scriptures were greatly damaged. When great traditional Buddhist schools, such as Tien-Tai School, Yien Sho School, and Vijnanavada School weakened and declined, Buddhists from Korea and Japan returned many Buddhist scriptures back to China, to ensure each Buddhist school continued to pass on their teachings. Hence, the Korean’s and Japanese’s kind act of giving back to China contained great benignity. (2)
Buddhism is the rare spiritual treasure of human culture. Hence, Buddhism’s development needs the ability to prophesize the future. When Buddhism can bring purity, happiness, peace, and harmony to sentient beings, and “fully practice “ “Buddhism in Mortal World” (3), then Buddhism will be able to continue to pass on, and dharma will flow endlessly. Today, Chinese Han Transmission Tantrayana Buddhism - Holy Tantra Jin-Gang-Dhyana Buddhism follows the holy ancestral masters’ Holy Tantra shou-ji (4) “to liberate from all misery” as our mission, to practice the ideal of Buddhism in mortal world, in order to greatly disseminate Buddhism.
Giving back, Holy Tantra shou-ji, Buddhism in mortal world
After the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha attained Buddhahood under the bodhi tree, He established and disseminated Buddhism to greatly liberate sentient beings. While transmitting in India during the thousand years of history, Buddhism rolled back and forth between prosperity and extinction up until the beginning of 13th century, once Nalanda Vihara and Vikramasila Vihara were invaded and destroyed, this symbolized that Buddhism was completely extinct in India. However, from the great enlightenment sea of the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha’s ultimate virtuous, compassion, and wisdom, Southern Transmission and Northern Transmission Buddhism travelled to Eastern Asia from Indian subcontinent. Buddhism took root and developed quite magnificently in Eastern Asia for thousand years and became a globally recognized major religion that’s the “most compassionate and most wise”. It is a spiritual cultural rare treasure that mankind cannot live without. However, the lesson of Buddhism being destroyed in its motherland was especially painful and profound, which all Buddhist sangha should contemplate thoroughly.
Some historians and religionists, even some eminent high monks, believed that the extinction of Buddhism in India is the reason for Tantrayana Buddhism to prosper. This article is not to start a controversy, since controversy tends to drift away from the truth. Hence, this article is not going to expound on this issue. Rather, let’s find the answer from the forms of teaching, forms of yoga, forms of discipline, and forms of perfection given from the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha.
After Buddhism entered China from India, it had formed a new cultural force, which was going to clash with Confucianism and Taoism, the leading philosophies in Chinese culture. In history, Buddhism and Taoism each published “scripture”. Taoism’s Laozi Hua Hu Sutra claimed that Laozi went to India, and became Buddha. Buddhism’s Pure Dharma Practice Sutraclaimed that Laozi was Mahakasyapa; Confucius was Learned-Youth Bodhisattva, where Yan Hui was the incarnation of Pure Light Bodhisattva. They both used their own theorem to prove that the other group’s founder was actually their own disciples.
Experts of sutra-pitaka could usually notice that many holy miracles performed by the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha were depicted inside many Buddhist scriptures; whereas Confucianism promoted “the subjects on which, the Master did not talk, were extraordinary things, feats of strength, disorder, and spiritual beings”. Hence, in order to decrease the friction and controversy, when Buddhism was first entered China; Buddhists mastered the profound Chinese culture. Subsequently, they blended in many “harmonious thinking” into the Buddhist sutras while translating them into Chinese. For instance, in Fang-Guang Prajna Paramita Sutra, it stated many “harmonious thoughts” that all sentient beings should have the same purpose, should view each other as their own parents and brothers, should perform ten virtuous deeds equally, should practice noble action, should keep one’s mind pure to achieve happiness; all sentient beings will attain prajna, and obey the law of the universe.”(5)
Many emperors in history had the intention to soothe this type of cultural clash. Emperor Wu of the Liang Dynasty (464 to 549 AD) was a famous Buddhist emperor who was ordained as a Buddhist monk four times during his reign. He wrote Buddhist annotations for Maha-Nirvana Sutra, Mahaprajnaparamita Sutra, Arya-Vimalakirtinirdesa Nama Mahayana Sutra, and Mahavaipulya-mahasamnipata Sutra, but he also wrote Confucian and Taoist articles for The Golden Means Explicate, and Laozi Explicate.
Regarding the Eight Great Men of Letters of the Tang and Sung Dynasties, nowadays, they were considered the great national scholars. Even though they were mostly Buddhists, Han Yu, the eldest of the Eight Great Men promoted that emperor should follows and uses Confucianism, and should not overly worship Buddhism. His writings, Yuan Dao and Jian Ying Fo Gu Biao, were great influences later on (6). The teachings of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism went through the process of clashing and crashing with each other, however, when the li-xue thinking started to prosper in Sung Dynasty, those teachings were relying and assisting each other.
During the history, Buddhism as a foreign religion entering China, Buddhist terminologies and teachings were once explained in Confucianism and Taoism languages; were explained in everyday languages; used drawings and chanting to express its meanings; and used all types of Holy Tantra means and methods to disseminate (7). All these methods were used to widely promote Buddhism to the populace. This proved that Indian Buddhism had accepted the influence of Chinese traditional culture, by using its great accepting, wise and compassionate caring nature. As a result, the distinctive Chinese Buddhism was born and invigorated China.
All religions need the national government’s support, in order to spread and disseminate according to the time wheel. In China, Confucianism and Taoism were no exception; the Buddhist dissemination was especially true. A famous monk of East Jin Dynasty, Shi Dao An, exclaimed that it’s difficult to disseminate dharma when one does not receive the support from the head of state. Due to the differences in foreign culture and local culture, Buddhism needed to follow the local culture closely in order to establish and transmit itself. At the same time, Buddhism could not be homogenized. This would lose its content of transcendence spiritual yoga (8) with the forms of teachings, yoga, discipline, and perfection. Hence, during the process of Buddhism being influenced by the Chinese, even though Buddhism prospered with governmental supports, it also experienced the persecution in four dynasties under four emperors, instigated by social and religious conflicts.
All religions also need to follow the local customs in order for the greater public to offer broad support and faith. Buddhism needs to practice as “Buddhism in mortal world”, in order to make Buddhism long lasting, and make dharma flow endlessly. This is the reason why after going through the persecution of four emperors in four dynasties, Chinese Buddhism was still able to stand strongly. Unfortunately, it’s easy to see how Buddhism was greatly damaged by this dharma disaster. According to historical records, within the six years of persecution of Buddhism by Emperor Wutsung of Tang Dynasty, over four thousand six hundred temples were destroyed; over two hundred sixty thousand of sangha returned to laity; more than forty thousand of caturdisa were disbanded (9). The most brutal part was that lots of sutra-pitaka and sutra imprinted boards were destroyed, which directly ended many Buddhist schools, and subsequently, Chinese Buddhism had started to decline. As a Buddhist sangha, we need to seriously reflect on this history without committing the same mistake again in the future.
Buddhist teachings flowed out from India. At the beginning, it went eastward. The teachings of Theravada Buddhism, Mahayana Buddhism, Vajrayana Buddhism, and Tantrayana Buddhism were greatly spread around countries and areas such Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Thailand, China, Tibet, Korea, and Japan. Those teachings all experienced the process of encompassing the local cultures and becoming part of the rare treasure of each individual culture. Westerners have gradually practiced modern Buddhism. On the surface, this is a holy connection under the trend of globalization. However, the ultimate truth is that this is the spiritual guidance of cosmic transcendence. Many holy ancestral Masters had Holy Tantra shou-ji and prophesized it.
After Buddhism entered China, it had formed into ten major Buddhist schools, such as Satyasiddhi School, Abhidharma School, Madhyamika School, Dharmalaksana School, Tien-Tai School, Avatamsaka School, Dhyana School, Pure Land School, Vinaya School, and Esoteric Buddhism, where these different schools spread into faraway places. Buddhism in Korea, Japan, Mongolia, Vietnam, and other places had greatly maintained traces from Chinese Buddhism. Hence, their Buddhism was also based on Chinese Buddhism; and was the product of Chinese Buddhism blended with the local cultures.
India is a sacred place for all the Buddhist sangha. For more than a thousand years, sangha all over the world, with the simple inclination of wanting to explore the truth of Buddhism, would travel to the holy place wanting to experience in person all the sacred sites where the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha had disseminated dharma. When the sangha started the sacred journey, the sangha hoped that the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha would provide them with spiritual guidance. Due to this reason and background, the seeds of Buddhism gradually took root in India again. Buddhism got to sprout and grow due to this giving back. Buddhism, which was completely extinct in India around the 13th century, finally experienced the glory of emitting sparkling lights again at the beginning of the 19th century.
China was the starting place for the prospering of both Southern Transmission Buddhism and Northern Transmission Buddhism. Around the beginning of AD 1, Buddhism entered China (10), and subsequently experienced persecution of four emperors in four dynasties. In the history of Chinese Buddhism, the most glorious era was in the Great Tang Dynasty. With the support from the imperial royalties, different schools and sects were established, and Buddhist teachings were greatly spread. However, in the late Tang Dynasty, due to the influence of the Hui Cang dharma disaster, the great tripitaka of Chinese Buddhism was mostly lost; this led to the decline for schools that relied heavily on Buddhist theories. Avatamsaka School was buried until the Sung Dynasty when it was transmitted weakly. During the epoch of five dynasties, Emperor Qian of the Wu Yue Kingdom requested Korea for the Tien-Tai School’s sutras and sastras. Due to Korea’s giving back, Tien-Tai School got to prosper again from having its own sutras and sastras.
According to history, the establishment of Japanese Buddhism was the result of the great caring from Chinese Buddhism. Later on, when Japanese Buddhism gave back to Chinese Buddhism, it was a great achievement and boundless merit.
Prior to the persecution of Buddhism by Emperor Wutsung of Tang Dynasty, the Great Vajra Acarya, Hui Guo Tripitaka (11) quickly passed the two mandalas of Tang Esoteric Buddhism, Garbhadhatu and Vajradhatu, to Japanese monk, Kukai (12), within one year. The Great Vajra Acarya, Hui Guo Tripitaka said to Kukai, “My connection with this place is coming to an end; I cannot stay for long. The two great mandalas, more than a hundred types of Vajrayana teaching, along with some offering vessels given to me by Bhagavan the Great Holy Jewel Amoghavajra Tripitaka, will need to be brought back to your country, and transmitted everywhere.” Hence, the Tang Esoteric Buddhism was spread to Japan, and once it was merged with Japanese culture, it had become Tomitsu, the Shingon School. Another Japanese monk, Saicho, learned Buddhist teachings from the Acarya Shun Xiao, student of Bhagavan the Great Holy Jewel Subhakarasimha Tripitaka, and received the Garbhadhatu mandala. After returning to Japan, he combined the teachings of Tien-Tai School, Dhyana School, and Vinaya School, and became the Japanese Tien-Tai School, known as the Daimitsu.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, Tomitsu and Daimitsu started the holy act of giving back to China, by teaching Chinese monks who travelled to Japan to seek dharma. The Great Holy Jewel Chi Song Acarya (1894 - 1972) was a shining example who promoted the importance of both theory and practice, and was also perfect in both theory and practice. The Great Holy Jewel Chi Song Acarya made several trips to Japan to seek dharma, and attained the position of Acarya for transmission from Shingon Schhol and Daimitsu. Once he returned to China, he set up altar to perform abhisecana to tens of thousands of sentient beings. It was an immortal achievement for bringing Tang Esoteric Buddhism back to China.
Even earlier on, another famous eminent Buddhist Yang Ren-Shan (1837 - 1911) founded the Jin Ling Ke Jing Chu, a place where they engraved sutras on wooden boards and printed them. At the end of 19th century, Yang Ren-Shan invited and brought back more than three hundred sutras and sastras from Japan lost during the period of Tang/Sung Dynasties. This included the Explicate of Vidya-Mantra Siddhi Sastra.
This series of historical facts prove that Japanese Buddhism’s giving back to Chinese Buddhism was a distinctive holy arrangement set by transcendence cosmic spiritual nature. It helped Chinese Buddhism to cross over the long, declining and dark historical period after the brilliance and glory period at the Great Tang Dynasty.
Under the guidance of the cosmic transcendence, the eight series of holy sangha of Chinese Han Transmission Tantrayana Buddhism - Holy Tantra Jin-Gang-Dhyana Buddhism (subsequently shortened to “Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism”) retreated orderly from the inner bodhimandala in 841 AD, prior to the dharma disaster at Hui Cang. They concealed and not revealed any trace, abandoned the sangha jewel form, retreated from temples and mingled with ordinary people, did not descend to sound and form, hid the path and submerge the reality. They practiced the ideal of Buddhism in mortal world for more than thousand years, and transmitted through ordeal until modern days. With the great application arising from primordial dharma nature, ashreya (13), of “Ahdharma Buddha Tathagata, Samantabhadra Buddha Tathagata, and Vairocana Buddha Tathagata (14),” and under the spiritual blessings from the Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism’s holy ancestral Masters, the dharma essence of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism has been preserved until modern day, by using Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism’s “survival prajna”.
On June 6, 1963, the 27th Patriarch of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism’s Holy Patriarch Bhagavan the Great Holy Jewel Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Elder Dharma Lord Jing-Wu started the Holy Tantra shou-ji procedure to bring to perfection the succession and empowerment of Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti as the 28th Patriarch of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism (16). In 1966, Holy Patriarch Bhagavan the Great Holy Jewel Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Elder Dharma Lord Jing-Wu performed the rainbow transformation. Since then, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master carried on the mission of continuation of Buddhist teachings on the holy path.
(Regarding the dissemination journey of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism by Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master from 1966 to 1989 in mainland China under the special political environment will not be discussed now.)
By following the distinctive holy arrangement set by transcendence cosmic spiritual nature, and by obeying the Holy Tantra shou-ji by all holy ancestral Masters, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master left motherland in the spring of 1989; and started the great global dissemination of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism (17).
Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master teaches:
“Since the 20th century, Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism had ended the form of teachings of concealing and not revealing any trace and hiding the path and submerging the reality by relinquishing the temple to mingle with the public and giving up the sangha gem form for the past thousand years. Now, we can open up to the society and disseminate globally. We can hold traditional Akasagarbha dharma meetings to pass on Holy Tantra teachings. We can recommend the Holy Tantra teachings to the entire society on how to communicate between the universe and mankind, to get rid of miseries, to dissolve temporary and permanent pains. (18)”
According to the Holy Tantra shou-ji, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master not only founded the headquarters of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism at Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, Australia; branches were also set up and registered legally at regions and countries such as Hong Kong, United States, Canada, and New Zealand. This established Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism a real worldwide Buddhist organization, has greatly enhanced the enterprise of disseminating dharma and helping sentient beings.
The disseminating enterprise of the headquarters of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism is established on the Australian soil. Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism provided many different levels of Holy Tantra meditation classes, to teach Buddhist theorem and meditation methods. In addition, Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism followed its Rules and Regulations to make many donations through Jin-Gang-Dhyana Wang Xin De Foundation to different charitable organizations in the society, and received many high regards from the great residents of Hobart.
Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism has always been striving on promoting harmony among religions and establishing transcendence global ethic standards (19). Hence, starting in 2000, Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism accepted the invitation from Hobart City Council every year to be a part of the city’s annual Christmas Pageant. As a Buddhist organization being able to attend a Christian festival in a Christian country, and being accepted by the Christian followers has proven that it is extremely important to be able to start the transcendence peaceful dialogue among religions (20). Following this, as all religions are able to coexist harmoniously, it will not be long for us to see the establishment of transcendence global ethic standards.
In order for sentient beings to be liberated by seeing (21), Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism has used all types of convenient methods to disseminate the holy teachings, to show the mighty vitality of the Buddhism in mortal world, revealed by the modern hermeneutic of the Avatamsaka Arya Pratyaya (hua yan holy condition/connection) (22). At the same time, the footsteps of the great global dissemination of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism are moving forward steadily.
In 1999, Holy Tantra elder gurus and Holy Tantra gurus attended the Parliament of the World’s Religions for the very first time. In the speech, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master mentioned an ideal with spiritual meaning of “All Religions are the same” and “Peace and Harmony of the World” for the very first time also. These ideals had become the main stream idea for the next Parliament of the World’s Religions (23).
In 22nd - 23rd June, 2002, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master, in response to invitation, led a delegation of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism to participate in the Australasian Buddhist Convention held in Melbourne, Australia.
Another Parliament of the World’s Religions was held in 2004. It became the big stage upon which Holy Tantra elder gurus and Holy Tantra gurus to help sentient beings. Embraced with the wish full of ultimate kindness, compassion, and wisdom of the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha to greatly spread to sentient beings; for seven days, they coexisted peacefully with religions representatives from all over the world, and planted countless bodhi seeds.
On August 27, 2005, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master received the 25th anniversary award for “Contribution to Multiculturalism”, a medal engraved: for your dedication and meritorious service to Australia, from the Federation of Ethnic Communities Council of Australia (FECCA), an organization of the highest level in Australia promoting multiculturalism, ethnic harmony, and social justice.
In April, 2006, China’s First World Buddhist Forum had invited Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master to attend. Since Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master was disseminating dharma overseas, two Holy Tantra delegates attended the forum instead. In the closing ceremony of the First World Buddhist Forum, which was held at Mount Puto, a Holy Tantra elder guru was appointed as one of the 108 high sangha of the world.
During 6th - 13th May, 2006, Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism attended the dual celebration of the International Conference on the United Nations Day of Vesak and the 60th coronation anniversary of the King of Thailand at Bangkok, the capital of Thailand.
Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master personally led a delegation of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism to attend this international Buddhist conference. Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master and the delegation also visited many important Buddhist temples, such as the inner bodhi-mandala of the palace, Wat Phra Si Rattanasatsadaram, the Royal temple, Wat Arun, Wat Sanghathan, and Wat Pho. Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master was also invited to give Holy Tantra teachings inside their temples.
At the closing ceremony of the International Conference on the United Nations Day of Vesak, an unprecedented scene took place. Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master was invited to conduct the first holy ritual. When “Light of the Universe” was started, the Sanskrit sound resonated through the entire conference hall, filling the Buddhist regions and realms. It was extraordinary holy and pure. The main organizer of this international Buddhist conference, who was also the rector of Maha Chulalongkornrajavidyalaya University, Most Ven. Professor Dr. Phra Dharmakosajarn said that this was the first time that a Mahayana Buddhist ritual is being used to celebrate Vesak. This unprecedented holy event created a new chapter for the four main philosophical traditions of Theravada Buddhism, Mahayana Buddhism, Vajrayana Buddhism, and Tantrayana Buddhism to hold hands and walk forward together harmoniously.
Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism gives back to Thailand, Sri Lanka, and other countries; Holy Tantra Buddhist light brightens up the hearts of sentient beings. Multiple deva revealed auspicious phenomena. Practitioners who yoga with the cosmic transcendence spiritual, obtained great freedom, praising that it had never happened before. This is the ultimate great application arising from “Bodhi mind as cause, great pity as base, and upaya as the supreme truth”, as stated in the Maha-Vairocana Sutra. In 5th - 15th November, 2006, when the Avatamsaka Arya Pratyaya (hua yan condition/connection) was mature, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master finally was able to return to his motherland, where He waved goodbye tearfully eighteen years ago. Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism, this essence of human civilization was once again returned to His birthplace. It opened the historical curtain of Holy Tantra teachings giving back to China.
The late Mr. Zhao Pu Chu (Elder Zhao), the then Chairman of Chinese Buddhist Association was a Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master’s personal guru (24). In other words, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master is Elder Zhao’s dharma son. After parting in 1981, they both could not meet again in this world. Hence, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master obeyed the spiritual promise (25) that He and Elder Zhao made together and returned to Tai Hu of An Hui Province, China, Elder Zhao’s birthplace, to participate in the commemoration activities of the 99th anniversary of the holy birthday of Elder Zhao.
Afterward, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master visited and paid respect to many temples in China, such as the Kuo-Ching Temple at Tien-Tai, and other famous Buddhist temples at Mount Puto in Zhejiang Province. On November 11, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master returned to Hangzhou and visited the Lingyin Monastery on Lingyin Mountain. During this trip, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master shared Holy Tantra teachings with countless sentient beings.
In order to express gratitude to his motherland for its nurturing and educating, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master teaches:
“Chinese Han Transmission Tantrayana Buddhism - Holy Tantra Jin-Gang-Dhyana Buddhism must make respective contributions to sublime the quality of the mental life and spiritual life of all Chinese people. Hence, each and every Holy Tantra practitioner should carry this glorious historical mission and should strive to thank the dear motherland, to bring prosperity to the Chinese people, and to bring peace to the world.”
Afterward, Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master and the Holy Tantra delegation travelled tirelessly to Sri Lanka to attend the 3rd General Conference of World Buddhist Sangha Youth (WBSY) on 2nd - 5th December, 2006. In accordance with the cosmic transcendence spiritual guidance, they followed the footsteps of Bhagavan the Great Holy Jewel Vajrabodhi Tripitaka and Bhagavan the Great Holy Jewel Amoghavajra Tripitaka and paid respect to many Buddhist holy sites.
Being able to participate in the time wheel of global dissemination of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism, and having the spiritual nature yoga with transcendence, these experiences were very profound. Due to this author’s abstrusity in writing, this article has the feeling of listing one item while missing ten thousand others.
This author failed to list every single global dissemination trip led by Bhagavan Zhi-Ji Vimalakirti Ahdharma Buddha Patriarch Master.
During the course of each dissemination trip, the ten prophecies (27), which were recorded in Arya-Vimalakirti-nirdesa Sutra, manifested vividly one by one in front of my eyes. This holy picture scroll of cosmic transcendence exhibits marvellously. People who were there to experience it personally felt like they were brought back to the past era when the Great Holy Sakyamuni Buddha was still alive and was personally constructing the Bhagavan Gu Fan Mi Fo-Fan-Chi-Ming Tantrayana Buddhism (28). Nowadays, Holy Tantra dissemination is practicing the spirit of giving back, anticipating the return of Bhagavan Gu Fan Mi Fo-Fan-Chi-Ming Tantrayana Buddhism to its birthplace, hoping that He will stay in the world for a long time, and will rebuild His past glory.
During the course of the global dissemination of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism, this author experienced profoundly the ideal of actual practice of Buddhism in mortal world; in order to liberate sentient beings from current and eternal miseries, we need to gain the great application arising from the transcendence spiritual guidance. This is what inheriting the “Holy Tantra enterprise” means.
Currently, the pace of Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism’s dissemination is moving forward steadily. No matter where, Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism will always obey and follow all the local rules and regulations to disseminate the holy teachings. “It’s difficult to disseminate dharma when one does not receive the support from the head of state” still applies in modern society. It means that in order to completely liberate sentient beings from all miseries, one needs to contribute wholly to this selfless career, but needs to do so within the guidelines of governmental policies and approvals.
From 1989 to nowadays, Holy Tantra Esoteric Buddhism, featuring His “20 year old” young style, His extensive global dissemination, still growing, and as brilliant and magnificent as a rainbow, is like the sun at high noon.
