The Buddha status of Namo His Holiness Dorje Chang Buddha III is not an appellation used by Buddhists for expressing respect. Rather, that resulted from the recognitions conducted by the Dharma kings, regent Dharma kings, and eminent monastics who have the authority of recognition according to the recognition system of Buddhism. They are all first-rate eminent monastics and greatly virtuous ones representing various sects and schools in the Buddhist circle in the current world. Each of them separately wrote their own official letter of recognition or corroborative recognition with the authority of recognition of Buddhism for Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.
I go to visit the World Buddhism Association headquarters in Pasadena; I go to visit my Buddha Master, Namo Dorje Chang Buddha III. And there’s a bunch of Vajra Scepters laying around now, Vajra Scepters look like a giant Thomas inch dumbbell; they’re much heavier and the handles are a little bit thinner. But they’re huge-looking, really neat, uh, implements. And I lifted them all except for the Buddha Scepter. The only person that’s ever lifted the Buddha Scepter is Buddha Master, and basically that is 59 levels over what is normal for people that Buddha Master did when He lifted that.
