THE REAL MEANING OF THE FIVE VIDYAS
Traditionally, the vidyas are divided into the five major vidyas and the five minor vidyas. The five major vidyas are the silpakarmasthanavidya (craftsmanship vidya), the cikitsvidya (healing vidya), the sabdavidya (sound vidya), the hetuvidya (causality or Buddhist logic vidya), and the adhyatmavidya (inner realization vidya). The five minor vidyas are rhetoric, ornate diction, prosody, dramaturgy, and astronomy. Actually, the Five Vidyas are not that narrow. Everything in the universe can be classified into five aspects of brightness and darkness. To develop everything that is good in the universe and that benefits living beings is classified as "bright". That which confuses and is bad is classified as "dark". This is the real meaning of the Five Vidyas (Five Bright) of which the Buddha spoke. (See 5 Vidyas in 30 Categories)
WHAT IS CULTIVATION?
Today you, who are a rinpoche, respectfully requested a discourse on the dharma relating to the question "What is cultivation?" This is a very fundamental lesson; indeed, the first lesson. Nonetheless, this is an important matter that many cultivators, including those who have practiced cultivation over many years, do not understand and are confused about. It is difficult to incarnate as a human being. It is even more difficult to incarnate as a human being with the opportunity to encounter the true Buddha-dharma. Thus, today I will enlighten everyone on dharma relating to the question "What is cultivation?" (Read the Full Discourse)
No Other Great Holy Being Can Compare with My Root Master
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III
I am Xirao Jiebu II. In a prior life, I was a disciple of Guru Padmasambhava and was also a disciple of the great historical master Shantaraksita. I am embarrassed to face the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. However, due to causes and conditions planted since beginning-less time, I feel obliged to divulge certain karmic fruits of mine. When I was a child, I became the first disciple of His Holiness Dorje Chang Buddha III. Dorje Rinzin, who is the incarnation of Rigzin Terdak Lingpa Unchanging Vajra, conducted an initiation for the Dzogchen Monastery''s seventh Dzogchen Dharma King and other great rinpoches last month. At that time, they asked me whether I had seen many holy feats performed by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. (Read Full Article)
Building Materials created by H.H. Tathagata Dorje Chang Buddha
III Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu bless living beings with Enchanted Splendor.
From the time H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu Holiest Tathagata descended into this world, His Holiness has always wanted to renew the world of building material thoroughly so that ordinary families could enjoy the splendor of earthly mansions and the beauty of heavenly palaces. His Holiness has always wanted to replace common tiles, marble, and granite slabs in the old style with halls as gorgeous and resplendent as gemstones and with rustic, charming dècor that people with refined tastes can appreciate. Based on this desire, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III wielded his brush and applied colors. As a result, extremely beautiful and glittering jewel-like floor and wall tiles were born! There are also excellent tiles with an ancient, simple, unadorned look, such as tiles in a more rustic style and tiles that look like unearthed cultural relics.
