6 Amazing Works of Calligraphy by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III

The meaning of this couplet is as follows:
No matter what our circumstances may be, we must always remember to be tolerant and patient under insult and adversity and cultivate our conduct at all times. Additionally, we should broadly plant seeds of goodness and develop ourselves to be selﬂess people of noble moral character. This type of morality is as bright as the sun and moon. Those who personify it will receive the respect and love of others.
“To last as long as the mountains and rivers, be a benevolent one of virtue” refers to people who have a noble moral character; who exemplify benevolence, justice, proper manners, wisdom, and faithfulness; who show loving care for others; and who selﬂessly contribute to others. Their state of realization and virtue will last as long as the mountains and rivers, never fading away.
2. “Noble Manner” by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (格高) :
The two Chinese characters in this work of calligraphy mean “Noble Manner.”
The meaning of the two Chinese characters is as follows:
- The term “Noble Manner” means that one should have an elevated and broad manner, an all-inclusive magnanimity. We should let others, rather than ourselves, have that which is beneficial so that we may attain a noble moral character, and we should cultivate a mentality of non-attachment in order to develop our virtue.
3. “Tiny” by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (小不點)
Note: The artist maintains a childlike, innocent mind yet wields the brush with an experienced, mature hand.
The meaning of the two Chinese characters is as follows:
- Regardless of how great one‘s abilities are even if one’s talents are unsurpassed in the entire world or one is the leading authority in a certain field, as a human being, one should develop one’s virtue. build one‘s true abilities, and benefit others. To do this, one must first be modest and open-minded and regard oneself as an ordinary person, a servant to others, a tiny, insignificant being. One should not think that one is superior to others in any respect. Only by considering the interests of others in such a Way can one become selﬂess and be naturally magnanimous.
4. “Great Accomplishment Is Attained Only Through Selﬂessness” by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (無我乃大成)
Note: This work of calligraphy is in the steel brush-tip technique.
There is profound meaning to the sentence “Great accomplishment is attained only through selflessness.”
- As human beings living in this world, we must first let go of “self.” Day and night we should stay far away from selfishness and should derive our happiness from benefiting others. When attachment to the concept of self is absent in our thoughts, we become free of selfishness and greed. Our minds become bright, clear, and free of impediments. We then consider the interests of others and are naturally respected by others.
5. “When Images of Three Buddhas Appear, the Genuine Nature of Jade Will Come Forth” by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (佛上三圖真玉性 古蘭點下老松心)
This Work of calligraphy was written by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III in Chengdu, China in the year 1990. Its meaning is that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III would appear in this world in the future when images of three Buddhas appear in the world; that is, when the lineage chart of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha I, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha II, and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III appears with their images.
The lineage chart of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is worshiped in many Buddhist temples and other Buddhist sites all over the world. When those three images appeared, the true Buddha-dharma was like the nature of jade — unchanging — and it emanated the highest and purest fragrance and charm, like those of an ancient orchid. The true primordial, ancient Buddha stands upright like a lone pine tree and expounds the ultimate truth of tathagata-garbha to benefit all living beings. This work of calligraphy translates as. “When images of three Buddhas appear, the genuine nature of jade will come forth. An ancient orchid points to the mind of an old pine tree.”
As predicted, the person formerly known as Master Wan Ko is the present day H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. This was affirmed by dharma kings, regent dharma kings, and great rinpoches of all major sects of Buddhism around the world, who wrote recognition certificates and corroborating congratulatory letters. This recognition of identity was indeed a grand event in Buddhism. The above-mentioned prediction made years ago in 1990 is truly wonderful beyond words.
