Wangzha Shangzun“Grandfather" of Strongman, Replies to Attorney’s Questions
Dear Ms. Melissa, Esq.,
-You asked me what kind of strongman I am and how I became a strongman.
I participated in many strongman competitions all over the world and no one has matched my feats of strength. My records for my weight and age brackets in strength events have remains unbroken to this day.
I am a strongman. But I am also a reincarnated Rinpoche. When I was little, I was recognized by Kalu Lama, who bestowed upon me my Rinpoche name of Kanqian Wangzha Gongbo.
I really learned the authentic Buddha Dharma in 2002 under Buddha Master, Namo Dorje Chang Buddha III. My Buddha Master had come to the United States from China and was then known as Vajradhara Great Dharma King Yeshe Norbu. I humbly beseeched Buddha Master to take me as a disciple and Buddha Master held a refuge ceremony for me. I continued to go by the name of Nicholas Kanqian Wangzha Gongbo.
From that time on I have cultivated and studied the real Buddha Dharma under Namo Dorje Chang Buddha III. The Buddha Dharma greatly altered the composition of my body, as well as my mind and spiritual state. My strength utterly changed.
Namo Dorje Chang Buddha III is my Buddha Master to whom I owe the utmost gratitude.
-You asked me how I trained to become the strongman that I am.
I am able to teach the physical training involved in becoming a strongman. However, that alone will not enable you to reach my level. My strength also derives from the blessings of Buddha Dharma. I can only tell you this much, because the Buddha Dharma cannot be transmitted lightly.
Thank you for understanding.
Nicholas Kanqian Wangzha Gongbo.
