I respectfully honor the Three Bodies and Four Wisdoms of the Dharma King of the Three Spheres, H.H. Yangwo Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu:
We were fortunate to be able to read the book about the Buddha Vajradhara Dharma King, A Treasury of True Buddha-Dharma— A Collection of H.H. Yangwo Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu’s Accomplishments Manifesting Complete Proficiency in Exoteric and Esoteric Buddhism and Perfect Mastery of the Five Vidyas. We cannot describe how deeply astonished and moved we were. Those thirty main categories of accomplishments present a splendid sight that includes the cikitsvidya (healing vidya), silpakarmasthanavidya (craftsmanship vidya), sabdavidya (sound vidya), adhyatmavidya (inner realization vidya), and hetuvidya (causality or Buddhist logic vidya) in their holy sense. Such accomplishments have never been seen before in the history of Buddhism. A Treasury of True Buddha-Dharma is the highest Buddha-dharma treasure and manifests H.H. Great Dharma King’s supreme realization and virtue. H.H. Great Dharma King is the first holy being who used true realization to display fully in the dharma realm the teachings of the Buddha! H.H. Great Dharma King is the true Buddha Vajradhara, the teacher of both humans and celestial beings! In this Dharma-Ending Age, we are deeply happy that living beings in the earthly realm have the guidance of H.H. Great Dharma King.
May H.H. Great Dharma King forever live in the world and forever teach the dharma!
Junmai Baima Dorje
May 10. 2006
Ven. fourth Junmai Baima Dorje Rinpoche (the current one) descended into this world in the year of the dog according to the Tibetan calendar. When the rinpoche was born, a prajna bird (dharma protecting bird) spit from its mouth a green pine stone (one of the seven treasures) onto the balcony of the rinpoche’s home. A Buddhist image of Green Tara with clear facial features appeared on that green pine stone. (It is now kept in the rinpoche’s treasure chest of holy objects.) Various other auspicious signs manifested at the birth of the rinpoche, such as a rainbow in the sky, the beautiful sound of dharma drums resounding in space, and the wonderful sound of whistling and conch shells being blown.
In an oral teaching, the dakini Zere Kazhuo recognized Ven. Junmai Baima Dorje Rinpoche as an incarnation of Vajravarahi. When the rinpoche was five years old, the national master of Bhutan, H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, recognized the rinpoche as the reincarnation of Ven. Junmai Yongdeng Gyatso Rinpoche and personally signed and issued a recognition certificate. H.H. Dharma King Penor and H.E. Dharma King Rabjam also personally wrote recognition certificates.
At the age of about three, the young rinpoche transformed a thick Tibetan knife into a knot. After passing through many hands, that knife is now at Hua Zang Si in San Francisco, U.S.A., where a special place has been established to show it for public worship and veneration. The rinpoche currently resides at the Shechen Monastery. He has received initiations from the esoteric lineage of H.H. Panchen Lama X and other persons of great holiness and virtue. The rinpoche benefits all living beings by applying the wisdom and realization of a great Bodhisattva.
