Innumerable Emanations to Benefit Sentient Beings Compassionately

No. 001, by disciple Shen-Jen Chu, 2008

On June 28, 2007 as I was riding a scooter on the road at past 8:00 p.m., a taxi cab charged into my lane all of a sudden without signaling and it was only about 10 meters from me. At seeing the taxi cab coming against me in my lane, I thought: There is no time to avoid the accident. I should quickly visualize Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. As soon as I did that, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche appeared in the air not far ahead of me. The next thing that I knew was, I was flying over the upper edge of the taxi’s windshield with my left side hitting it. And I was sent flying out. I didn’t know how many rounds I was flying, but no matter how I flew, Rinchen Dorjee was always in the front of me. I remember I was thinking on the second round: Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, I’m very scared! Why haven’t I landed on the ground after flying for so long? Then there was a voice responding to me, very softly, “You should have faith in Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche.” And I replied in my heart, “Of course I have faith in Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche.” Then I lost consciousness.

After I was rushed to the hospital, I woke up. Before I was sent into the operation room on the next afternoon, many Dharma brother were reminding me to remember to visualize Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. They said that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche would protect me. In the operation room, the doctors kept saying that they had not seen someone with such severe fractures in both legs for a long time. I started visualizing Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche before I was administered with anesthesia. During the surgery, I saw that I was shrouded within the space of a globe that was filled with golden white light like that of the sun. When I woke up again, I was already moved into the ICU.

A total of eight hours passed from the beginning of the surgery to the time when I woke up in the ICU. During the surgery, I was dreaming of an old man who came to my side and kept telling me to go with him. I said no and told him that I was waiting for Rinchen Dorjee Rinchen to come so that I could go with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche! Then the old man turned himself into my family members, co-workers, supervisors, and classmates and still kept pressing me to go with him. I continued to say no, and told him that I must wait for Rinchen Dorjee Rinchen to come for me and would only go with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. Finally, the old man told me to go with him first, and then Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche would come and find me among them. I still said no. In the process he had no way of turning himself into Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. Nor was he able to enter the encirclement of light around me set by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to protect me. Only when my elder brother shook and woke me did the old man leave, crossly blaming me for wasting his time.

Both my thighs suffered from comminuted fracture, and even the doctors were unable to determine to what extent I could recover. I went through another surgery on July 5. With constant blessings and protection, I was told by the doctors that I had been recovering very well every time when they made rounds. I was discharged from the hospital on July 13 to continue my recovery at home. Since I left the hospital, I have not taken one single painkiller and completely relied on traditional Chinese medicine. The doctors said that the medicine had significant healing effect on me, whether it was water-based or in powder form. From the perspective of the Western medicine, I was considered to be in a grave condition which would require at least six months of hospitalization or even longer, and I was told to have the psychological preparedness for long bedridden period of at least one year, or even as long as two to three years before recovery.

Toward the end of July, I found the inside of my right knee had caved in about one-third with the right leg not being able to bend and also with some shrinkage. Upon my return visit to the hospital, the doctor told me that the knee depression would require me to be hospitalized for treatment and so I checked in again on August 3. But since I needed to go on a pilgrimage trip to Ladakh on August 17, I insisted on being discharged from the hospital on the morning of August 15 despite the fact that my doctor was very upset and could not understand my insistence.

Upon returning to Taiwan from Ladakh, I went back to the hospital for a check-up. The doctor asked me to take the X-ray to make sure that the bones had not dislocated. Then the doctor said, cheerfully, that the bones were starting to grow, and that he could see that the bone was growing in every fractured location. Even the bone shaft, which had not been expected to grow at all by the doctor who had planned to replace it with artificial joints, now was starting to grow.  The doctor exclaimed that it was really not the same with the help of Buddhism! From then on, the bi-weekly return check-ups became monthly visits back to the hospital. The doctor even asked me, pleasantly: How did you manage to recover so well? Every time I went back to the hospital for a routine check-up, the doctor would continue to be amazed – it was really not the same with the help of Buddhism. Now I’m no different from anyone else, able to move freely without any restrictions.

I started to follow Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche and learn Buddhism under him in 2002. But since I was quite self-righteous, I always got into fights with my wife. I have not been acting in accordance with the guru’s teachings even since I took refuge, causing my family and friends to be unable to understand me, and even making them believe that learning Buddhism had resulted in a mess of my life. In 2005, my vest and Dharma text were taken away from me and I could only implore Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to allow me to continue attending the puja. But Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche asked me, “Did your wife agree? I want your wife to tell me personally.” At that time, my wife and I had been estranged from each other. How would it be possible that she and I go and seek an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche together? Every once in a while, I would ask my wife to help me politely. After approximately a year and a half she finally agreed to let me go back to the Buddhist Center. But she still was not willing to seek an audience with the guru. I had an audience with the guru once again, but Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche asked me exactly the same question as he did one and a half years ago. That was enough to put me in misery, and I was at a loss as to what to do. Two days later, however, my wife took the initiative and said to me, “I dreamed of your Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche last night. He looked very kind. He was really amicable and made me feel very close, and even gave me two gifts.” I took advantage of this opportunity to ask for her help. To my surprise, she agreed to seek an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche together with me. She told the guru herself that she agreed to let me attend the puja. At last, I was able to attend the puja again. With the guru’s approval and my wife’s consent, I once again took refuge under Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche in 2007.

Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche went to the hospital to give blessings to my grandmother who was in coma due to uremia and said: Your grandmother caught many fish when she was young, and she even preserved them with salt. Though she has been ordained for a decade, she has not been able to help liberate these karmic creditors. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche instructed me to attend the Chod Puja on behalf of my grandmother. Later, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche performed the Amitayus Dharma twice for my grandmother. Upon completion of the first time, my grandmother woke up from coma. A few days later, my grandmother was able to attend the second Amitayus Puja in person. As soon as the Puja was over, and before Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche descended from the Dharma throne, I hurried to accompany my grandmother home by car. Despite that fact that it was I who went home with her, she insisted that it was Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche who took her hand and led her into the car. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche helped my grandmother have six additional years of life so that she could continue learning Buddhism. Toward the end of 2008, with the blessings of His Eminence Vajra Guru Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, my grandmother left the world peacefully and serenely, and received the auspicious Phowa which allowed her to go to the Pure Land.

In the still of the night, I can’t help recalling that year. Because of my nephew’s pemphigus, I was able to form affinity with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, as a result, my daughter and I could now live so peacefully every day without any fear.

My marriage hit the rocks in 2004, and I suffered from many false accusations from my ex-husband, resulting in a situation in which my eight-year-old daughter had to testify in court. My daughter was very nervous because of that, and I didn’t know how to alleviate her fears. So I went to seek an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, who said to my daughter, kindly, “Don’t be afraid! I will be by your side and protect you.” These few words were like a warm current flowing into the heart of both my daughter and me, and they drove our fears away.

In the court, my daughter was facing the judge calmly. She told me afterwards that she had seen that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was wearing the Dharma robe and walking out of a fog, then sat next to the judge, all so real and clear, smiling at her. This made all her nervousness and fear go away. And in July of that year, my daughter also took refuge with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. We will constantly remember Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s teachings and be responsible for all that we do and be happy to accept all suffering. Then suffering would not be following you like your own shadow anymore.

On December 1, 2006, I had the honor to follow the guru to Tibet. As I was caught in the rain and had a cold one day before the trip, my symptoms of the cold became more serious as soon as we got to Lhasa. With a hoarse voice, I had a running nose and was coughing. In addition, I suffered from alpine symptoms and hypoxia. I felt dizzy and had traces of blood in my throat and nose. When the night fell, I felt numb all over my body, could not move, and had difficulty breathing. All this proved to be extremely painful to me. I tried all my best in visualizing Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche but could not visualize the clear look of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche no matter how hard I tried. Only then did I realize that I didn’t have enough faith in the guru even though I constantly relied on him. This made me feel ashamed of myself in the face of the guru’s compassion and teachings. All of a sudden, I clearly felt that there were two rays rapidly shooting inside me through between the eyebrows. In the blink of an eye, I felt warmth gradually going through my limbs and the pain greatly alleviated, allowing me to complete the whole trip successfully.

The guru said, “The light of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas sheds on us every day.” I know that it was the protection and blessings from the guru, the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas that allowed me to make it through. I truly thank my guru!

On February 9, 2004 at past 10:00 a.m., I got an unexpected call from my daughter telling me that she had chest pain. It was so unbearable that she went on her own to the hospital, where the doctor wanted her to be hospitalized at once, telling her that she had severe pneumothorax. I rushed to the hospital’s emergency room. The physician on duty and the pulmonologist were examining her X-rays, and asked me, shaking their heads, “Where is the patient?” I told them, “She is in the bathroom!” They were rather shocked, “She has a very grave condition and should be lying on the bed without moving. How could it be that she is using the bathroom on her own?” As soon as my daughter came back, she was sent to the operation room immediately for intubation. The surgery was scheduled in two days to set the diaphragm right in the thoracic cavity to prevent pneumothorax from recurring. While my daughter was in the surgery, my mother, my daughter’s classmates and I were waiting outside the operating room, chanting the Great Six-Syllable Mantra together and visualizing Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche giving blessings to my daughter. During the visualization, I saw Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche in all black went into the operating room with two Dharma brothers on his sides.

The long wait was finally over. That day three young people had received their surgeries for the same condition. But only my daughter had the most successful operation. The other two had to undergo further treatment. Had it not been for the blessings of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, my daughter’s life might have been in danger. According to the doctor, had my daughter arrived at the hospital one hour later, she would have lost her life.

In September 2005 I followed Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to India to have an audience with His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang. Two to three months before the trip, I found that I had the lymph nodes on the neck again. I had them when I was in high school and it took quite a few months of treatment before they were gone. I once heard my father say that both my grandmother and my aunt passed away due to such tumors growing all over their necks, with my aunt dying at a fairly young age. I was a bit scared at the thought that my karmic retribution was right around the corner! When we arrived in Jaipur, I dreamed in the night of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche giving me blessings with his palm facing my neck for a long time. After that I saw Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche ascending in the air. When Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was leaving, without thinking I held his feet and cried, “Don’t leave me, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. If you are gone, what would I do?” Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was consoling me while patting gently on my back. Then he disappeared in my dream. The next day, I was trying to feel the seven lymph nodes in my neck but they were not there anymore, no matter how I hard I tried to find them. They have been gone without a trace since then. This has really astounded me, and I’ve been full of gratitude for Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche!

At the airport in India as we were waiting for our flight back to Taiwan, I saw the long trousers and the shoes that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was wearing were exactly the same as those in my dream. It must be that all this had been presented through my dream so that I could see the auspiciousness of Buddhism, as Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche had known that I was the kind of person who did not easily believe others and was hard to convince.

In May 2007, as Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was leaving for the Snow Mountain of Lapchi in Nepal for a three-month retreat, I was part of the team accompanying Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche on his trip to Nepal. Just a few days before departure, I broke my foot resulting in fractures. But I still went with the team on April 26, 2007, with heavy plaster on my foot. When we arrived at the airport in Nepal, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was already in the hall giving us blessings. We were really moved!

The next evening, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche told me to put my foot on a chair, and picked up the vajra pestle and giving blessings to the part of my foot where I experienced the most pain. After the blessings, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche also blew a few breaths onto my foot. When I woke up the next morning and removed the quilt to check on my foot, the very swollen condition, which resembled a large piece of leavened dough, was all gone, and it did not feel so painful anymore either! Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche even explained to me that I got this karmic retribution from eating so many chicken feet.

We used to run a family business offering food and beverage service such as breakfast and buffet. We had been hoping to end it as soon as possible for it was a business that created a lot of killing karma. One night after having an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche in which I reported to him my family’s financial condition, I dreamed of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche sitting in the center of our breakfast shop giving us the blessings. Surely enough, soon after that, someone made an offer for it with the interest of turning it into another type of business, and the price offered was very desirable. This allowed us to end the business quickly and smoothly, and along with it the killing karma for over 10 years. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s great compassion and power are really amazing.

In 2005, I followed Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to Tibet. As the bus climbed to an altitude above 5,000 meters, I suffered from both the altitude syndrome and motion sickness to such an extent that my whole body started to have convulsions as if death was imminent. For a long time, there was no alleviating of such symptoms and I was very scared until when I saw a rainbow struck across the sky. A thought popped up in my mind – I knew that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was coming to save me. I went all out, believing that as long as I gave myself up completely to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, I wouldn’t even care about death. Right at that moment, a ray of warm light shot into my forehead, and I felt all of a sudden that the symptoms were alleviated, and then gone. There were no more convulsions or hypoxia. Warmth started spread throughout my cold body from my forehead, and in the end my hands felt warm as well. I was so moved that I burst into a loud cry, in total disregard of the look from the people around me. This was the first time that I had a near death experience. It made me realize clearly that without the blessings from the guru Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, I would not be able to pull through it by myself.

On Friday, May 8, 2009, my 9-year-old daughter and I were riding bicycles together. Due to a wrong turn we came to a place facing a 45o – 60o down slope. As my daughter did not react fast enough, she went dashing down the slope and immediately after that she fell from the bike looking terrified. I thought “Oh my goodness!” and rushed down too. As I was holding her, I saw her cheek and forehead bleeding, and she was shouting in my arms, “Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, help me! Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, help me!” I knew in my heart that my daughter would just be fine and so I told her, “Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche will hear you and Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche will certainly come!”

After she was rushed to the hospital, I asked her why she shouted “Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, help me!” She said that as her bike was dashing down, she saw a white dragon following her. At the time she was falling, the dragon bound her body, but Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was standing right by her side.

Later a Dharma brother conveyed what Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was saying, “The generation of the child’s grandfather used to do killings and chopped down a tree, harming the dragon which was nestled in them. What happened to the child was an attempt of revenge on the part of the dragon. Since the child had a pure and undistracted mind, she could remember Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche when encountering danger.”

Upon returning home, I immediately asked my mother-in-law and my own mother living in the south. My mother remembered that about two to three months ago my father removed a natively-grown longan tree near the house with its roots. I didn’t know anything about this. And even my mother almost forgot it all. But Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche knew about it very clearly without seeing either of us.

This morning (April 22, 2010), the clothes that I washed were not dry yet, so I closed the door without locking it when I went outside, for fear that my 2-year-old daughter would follow me outside. As my daughter saw that I went outside, she also wanted to but accidentally locked herself inside. She was too young to have enough strength to unlock the door. So I told her to go downstairs and get my cell phone so that I could call for help. But she tripped as she was going downstairs, with her head first hitting the steps and her body rolling over from the fifth floor to the fourth. Soon I heard her crying but I could only shout at her from the window: Are you hurt? As she was crying and crawling, she kept shouting, “Mommy, hold me!” But I was actually completely helpless at that moment.

Soon my daughter went downstairs. There was no response from her no matter how hard I called her. After one hour, she came up. As I saw that she could still talk, I thought that she should be fine. So I asked her, “Just now did Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche come to help you?” She immediately said, “Thank Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche!” I asked again, “Did Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche hold you?” She replied, “Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was holding me. Thank Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche!” After that she went to the Buddhist altar to make prostrations and went to the second floor to bring my cell phone to me. Without Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s blessings, my daughter would surely have been rushed to the hospital for emergency care. I thank Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche!

Both my husband and I took refuge with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche on January 28, 2007. We had been married for many years but I could not become pregnant. Later I was found during a chocolate cyst surgery that I was a severe case of infertility- the doctor told me that I had right ovarian atrophy, and my uterine leaned backward with adenomyoma. I would have a very low probability of becoming pregnant even with the test-tube method. But after I took refuge, my right ovary grew back and the chocolate cyst became smaller. All these impossible things happened after I took refuge. I could actually conceive naturally without any medication or surgery. I thank Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for his great mercy and compassion.

In July 2008, I went to seek an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche while I was pregnant. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was giving me blessings for a long time. In the following October, as I was giving natural birth in the hospital, my daughter came to the world safely despite the fact that she had two laps of the umbilical cord around her neck. In the course of pregnancy, the doctor had found nothing unusual but Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche had foreseen it before that.

On the early morning of March 16, 2010, I dreamed of myself listening to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s Dharma teachings with my palms together. When the night fell, my son and daughter were fighting over a ball pen. Before I could stop them, I saw my daughter striking forcefully toward my son’s left eye with the pen. The wound was deep and very close to the eye. I realized then that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s blessings in my dream that morning allowed my son to avoid losing his left eye.

On the 23rd of that month, my younger brother said that he not only lost appetite but also felt difficult to breathe. The doctor told him that he had panic disorder. I hoped that he would come and implore Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for help. That night he was still feeling difficult to breathe. After he fell asleep, he dreamed of himself in a wooden house, with a practitioner in red and yellow clothes sitting facing him. The practitioner had no hair but was wearing glasses. He saw that the practitioner took off the glasses and wiped them before putting them back on. Then, smiling, the practitioner gave him blessings. He felt there was an energy flow going in all directions within his body, and immediately he felt his breathing was no longer difficult. Rather, it became easy and smooth. Wherever the energy flow reached he felt extremely comfortable sensation. Immediately he made prostrations to the practitioner and said, “Thank you, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche!” He felt it was unfathomable the next day when he woke up. Later, after my brother had an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, he told me with absolute certainty that the practitioner he had dreamed of was indeed His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. Now my brother has almost completely recovered.

As my mother was having an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche on July 31 because of her cellulitis, the guru asked me, “Did you help your mom apply the Bao Yuan Gao Ointment?” But I had completely forgotten that there was this great medicine! Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche then said, quite anxiously, “Hey! Please do me a favor!” Bao Yuan Gao Ointment was the key to my mother’s cure. Only two days after the application of Bao Yuan Gao Ointment, the purple marks that had spread to the ankle retreated to the sole around the wound and there was no more need for her to take painkillers!

On August 7, my mother went to seek an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for the Phowa. That night, all of a sudden she woke up from her sound sleep and wanted me to hurry up in raising her bed. Then she sat in the 90o posture with her palms together for a long time before went back to sleep again. Later I asked her and she said: Yes, it was Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche who came to see her. He had done that twice or three times! She continued to say that “how could she be lying in bed while the guru came to see her?” For over 20 days she had been doing the same thing over and over again, whether it was night or day, repeatedly reaching into her pocket for something. She kept demanding a red envelope, shouting anxiously: Hurry up! There is no time! If we don’t get it ready now, that would really be disrespectful! She even grew alert in her sleep that she should sit up straight – it showed that she had aroused reverence for Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche!

My husband had had high blood pressure for a long time, with the systolic pressure often as high as 180. One early morning in early October 2011, while sleeping, my husband had a stroke due to hypertension. He got up and started vomiting, feeling extremely uncomfortable. He kept vomiting while sitting near the toilet as if paralyzed, scared by the imminent death. As he continued to throw up, he held the toilet and said, “Disciple is repenting to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche!” He was very weak after vomiting and went into coma after I helped him to rest on the couch. Upon arriving at the hospital, he showed a GCS of 3, which is medically defined as a vegetative state. But he appeared to be sound asleep. I thought of His Eminence Vajra Guru Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche as the only one who could help us.

I did not know that my husband was vomiting and entered a coma as a result of the stroke, and was still waiting for the test results. At this point, a Dharma brother had already received instruction from Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, telling me that my husband went into coma because of cerebrovascular rupture on the left side, causing pressure onto the blood vessels of the brain on the right side. Later, when the test results came out, they confirmed that my husband had exactly the same condition as described by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. Soon, the doctor-Dharma brother arranged a place for my husband to have cerebral draining procedure.

On the night after the surgery, my husband’s GCS rose to 6. Though he was unable to talk, when I mentioned to him that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was blessing him and wanted him to visualize the guru, my husband shed tears. The Dharma brother forwarded the message, saying that my husband’s consciousness went to repent to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche that day, imploring the guru to give him blessings many times.

My husband woke up from the coma on the third day. Not only was he able to recognize people, but he also could talk with Dharma brothers. All this was the result of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s compassionate blessings. When he woke up, he said that something was missing in his head causing him to have a bad brain, and Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche gave him blessings. On the fourth day, he said he made prostrations to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche who gave him blessings and mended the big hole on the top of his head. During these days when he had the most critical condition, he had no one to rely on except Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. With the guru’s blessings, my husband was able to be discharged from the hospital in less than one month, and even the experienced medical staff was all amazed and felt this was incredible.

After leaving the hospital, we went to the Buddhist Center to express our gratitude to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for his blessings that allowed my husband to retain his life. That day, my husband grew a bit greedy and implored Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to bless his eyes that could not see well. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche said, “You’re really greedy!” Immediately my husband shed tears of repentance. To our surprise, as soon as he wiped dry his tears, both his eyes regained vision at once. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s blessings are really phenomenal.

My husband reported to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche that during his coma, he felt as if he was like a bullet cartridge in an all-enclosed bore of a gun, and his consciousness was at the position of the bullet. He saw that the transparent liquid that filled the propellant chamber suddenly changed into something dark and cloudy, as if it were about to be detonated. Just at that critical moment, he heard Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche shouting at him, Tengyi Huang, come on down!” At hearing Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s voice, he came down. After Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s explanation, they realized that his experience in the coma was one in which he was in fact wandering to the gate of hell! Thanks to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for never abandoning us and always helping us with his greatest power.

With His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s blessings, my husband went back to his job and has been able to attend the pujas on a regular basis. I thank Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for teaching us that saving his life was for him to be able to prostrate to the Buddha, chant Buddha’s name and learn Buddhism so that our wisdom-life could be saved.

In November 2011, as I was heading home from work I had an accident and was hit and sent flying in the air. At that time I could hear in my ears the voice of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche chanting the mantra of Dharma Protector Achi. After I was rushed to the hospital, the doctors told me that I had only some contusion. I thank Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche and the Dharma protector for their help, and I knew that it was Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche who had saved my life. In the same year, my young son had herpes zoster and the infection spread to his eyes. After he saw Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s Dharma photo on the book “Happiness and Suffering,” the conditions that he could not swallow food, that his tongue was festered, and that he was unable to talk had improved. When he was attending the puja, his infected eyes suddenly shed yellow-greenish liquid, and after that he did not feel any discomfort there anymore.

A few years ago, my father-in-law received blessings from Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche after he passed away. He did not have any sufferings. Instead, he appeared to be sleeping peacefully. After cremation, his skull showed obvious purple marks resembling a halo. All the family members expressed their gratitude to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for his compassionate liberation which allowed my father-in-law to be reborn in the Virtuous Realm.

In October 2006, my diabetic father developed acute enlargement of the prostate and his cold turned into pneumonia. When he was having an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, the guru told him that he had a kind of nameless poisoning from the crabs that he ate, and gave him blessings. Quite a few times, my father was about to fall, but very miraculously, he didn’t. He said that it was all because of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s blessings which headed off the dangers at the last moment. With Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s blessings, my father’s wound healed rapidly after his knee surgery, and even the doctors all thought that it was incredible.

In early 2012, on the day when my maternal grandfather passed away he told me, “Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was by my side protecting me last night.” My aunt and I both whispered to his ear that he must visualize that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was on top of his head and chant the Great Six-Syllable Mantra in his mind. My father, who did not believe in Buddhism, held Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s Dharma photo to show it to my grandfather. We all firmly believed that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche would not let grandfather suffer. My grandfather passed away in the afternoon, initially with the mouth wide open, as if he was quite angry. And his facial complexion turned yellow rather quickly. When Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche put my grandfather’s consciousness under protection, his mouth became shut completely and his face along with the lips turned rosy, which made him look even better than when he was alive. Grandfather’s body was not frozen for eight days but it showed no livor mortis, with the face looking very serene and rosy. Even his age spots became lighter, wrinkles disappeared and skin looked bright.

On the seventh day after my grandfather passed away, we finished chanting the Great Six-Syllable Mantra and were visualizing Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. As we went outdoors, we could clearly see clouds resembling a huge dragon hovering in the sky, as well as two identical images of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. In front of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas was a light-emitting skull with very deep eye sockets. We strongly believed that all this was the result of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s blessings and enlightenment through cultivation.

My younger brother had sequelae such as shock resulting from the side effects of panic disorder medication that he had been taking. The doctors were at a loss as to what to do. After three days after he had an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, my brother said that he had not felt so comfortable for many years. Since receiving Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s blessings, it has been five or six years and my brother has not had another panic attack. I truly thank Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche.

In November 2011, as I was driving through the Second Northern Freeway, my car suddenly had a flat tire and lost control. It kept slipping until hitting the central barrier and then stopped with its head facing the on-coming traffic. I was so scared and kept shouting, “Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, help me!” All of a sudden a police car appeared in the front and soon a towing truck also came, which quickly cleared up the accident scene. The tow-truck operator kept saying that I was really lucky as I didn’t hit another car. Even though all the four wheels were broken and the airbags were fully deployed, fortunately I was all fine. That was really incredible! Later I hurried to the babysitter’s house to pick up my child and the babysitter told me that the child was making prostrations to the Dharma photo of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche particularly frequently that day and kept saying, “Thank you, grandfather! Thank you, grandfather!” At hearing this, I felt ashamed of myself, as I realized that I didn’t have as much reverence for the guru as my two-year-old child.

Years ago, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche went to the hospital to give blessings to my mother at the terminal stage of cancer, and performed the auspicious Phowa for her after she had passed away. Before he performed the Dharma, my mother’s mouth was open, her body stiff. After the Dharma, her body became soft, and her aperture of Brahma warm. Her face was rosy as if she was fast asleep. After the cremation, there were sarira clusters in her skull. I was very pleased that my mother was able to go to the Pure Land at the end of this life, leaving all suffering behind to be happy. All this was the result of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s blessings and protection. I truly thank His Eminence Vajra Guru Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche!

My mother has attended the Great Indiscriminate Amitabha Puja for Transferring Consciousness presided over by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche seven times now. After the first time, the cystitis, which had been troubling her for years and recurred repeatedly, never bothered her again. Mother believed that it was the blessed rewards from attending the Great Puja, allowing her to be free from this agony. In addition, one of her friends told her after attending the Great Puja, “My husband dreamed of his mother, who had been bedridden for a long time and unable to walk, coming to see him with radiating vigor and perfect mobility. He asked her in his dream, ‘Mother! You can walk now?’ And his mother replied, happily, ‘Didn’t you attend the Great Puja to help me? I am doing very well now.'” The auspicious power of the Great Puja is truly miraculous.

Dharma master Huei-Yang and we are all ordained Exoteric Buddhist disciples who took refuge under Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. He told us, “You are all my disciples. If you don’t have a place to live in, clothes or food, I will take care of you.” So Dharma master Huei-Yang and her old mother moved in with us over four years ago. It was the dorm provided by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for disciples free of charge. In addition, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche also provides us ordained disciples with all other life’s needs, including costs of medical care.

From August or September 2011, we saw Dharma master Huei-Yang’s health deteriorate rather quickly due to recurrence of lupus erythematosus. In as short as a few months, she became bedridden, lost mobility and had to use a wheelchair. With her skin cracked and turned dark, she had severe swollen conditions and ascites. She had difficulty eating, sleeping and breathing. On March 23, on the way to the hospital, her blood oxygen reading dropped to 17, as compared to the normal level of 98-100. When we whispered into her ear: Visualize that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche is blessing you at the top of your head, Dharma master Huei-Yang clearly nodded her head to acknowledge that she had heard us. Then, the blood oxygen reading on the life detector kept rising, and at one time it even reached 95. This was really incredible!

That night in the ICU, Dharma master Huei-Yang wanted us to show her the refuge certificate and then put it on the top of her head so that she could visualize Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche shedding light at the top of her head and blessing her. Next morning, Darma master Huei-Yang passed away, and then she was liberated through the auspicious Phowa performed by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. She looked very serene as if she was fast asleep and her aperture of Brahma was warm and caved in. The limbs were soft, with all swollen conditions in her body gone. Even the ascites had disappeared miraculously. She looked completely different from when she was alive. Moreover, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche paid for all of Dharma master Huei-Yang’s funeral expenses and promised to continue to take care of her mother, including living, dorm and medical costs. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche has been taking care of us whether we are living or after we pass away.

January 10, 2009 was the day scheduled for the obstetric check-up for my 36 full weeks of pregnancy. When I got up that early morning I felt muffled and dull pain in my abdomen. It became more severe on the way to the clinic and I started to bleed with continued uterine contractions. So I hurried to the hospital and soon found that my baby was coming. Though it had 36 full weeks, it was underweight and was estimated to be about 2,300 g by ultrasound. The doctor proposed that tocolytic measures be taken, which normally would allow the baby to grow an additional 300 g per week and so it may require that I stay in the hospital for one to two weeks.

When I was waiting for an available ward, I was visualizing Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s kind look, and soon I stopped bleeding. As soon as I checked into the ward, the doctor decided to give a high dose of tocolytics, and told me that it would have such side effects as dizziness, fever, nausea, vomiting, etc. But my mind remained clear and I experienced none of the side effects. On the fourth day, I had another ultrasound, and was told that the fetus had grown to over 2,900 grams, thus removing my worry that it would have underweight and malnutrition problems. Had it not been for Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, how would I have been able to suffer no side effect while going through the tocolytic process? And how would the fetus have been able to gain more than 600 grams in as short as four days? Moreover, I was able to be discharged from the hospital on the fifth day. I truly thank Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for his compassionate blessings and care.

A few years ago, one of my co-workers asked me for a nectar pill. She cried and told me that her sister’s son was only four years old and had meningitis, and that the hospital even issued a notification of critical condition, informing them to have psychological preparedness. I told them that with a situation like that, they should go and implore Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for help as soon as possible.

She quickly told her sister and brother-in-law to go immediately, as I called my elder sister and asked her to take them all to seek an audience with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. As they saw Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche come, they immediately knelt down and implored Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to save their child. With great compassion, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche gave them a nectar pill, telling them to let the child who was in the hospital take the pill, and that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche would go there to give the child blessings the next day.

As soon as the boy woke up the next day, he said: He saw a very pretty aunt in white coming to see him. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche explained that it was Dharma Protector Achi, because as soon as the child’s father left the jewelry shop the day before, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche went back to the Buddhist Center to perform the Dharma for the boy. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche instructed the boy’s father to attend the Chod Puja on behalf of his son and told him the cause and effect about the boy’s illness – it was the chicken that the child ate as they were sightseeing in Singapore. The chicken was infected with virus, which ended up in the boy’s brain. Everything is fine now!
