Recognitions and Congratulations - From JUNMAI BAIMA DORJE RINPOCHE
I respectfully honor the Three Bodies and Four Wisdoms of the Dharma King of the Three Spheres, H.H. Yangwo Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu:
Ven. Junmai Baima Dorje Rinpoche is a nirmanakaya of Vajravarahi. Ven. first Junmai Baima Dorje Rinpoche was the famous terton Renzhen Daoxiang Dorje Rinpoche. Ven. the second Junmai Baima Dorje Rinpoche was Jiaweng Songjie Zhaxi Rinpoche. He turned his body into a rainbow and passed away in a state of liberation. He left behind his fingernails and the hair on his head. Ven. third Junmai Baima Dorje Rinpoche was Jimei Yongdeng Gyatso Rinpoche. He, too, was a very famous and great teacher and terton. During his life, he easily unearthed many hidden treasures, which mainly included a gold statue of Green Tara, The Precious Book Handed Down From Tibet on the Heart Mantra of the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, and Dakini Dharma Protectors, and an eight Buddhas stupa. These precious things are now being kept at the Dege Larong Temple. The rinpoche exhibited innumerable supernatural feats. The rinpoche left behind many imprints of his hands and feet inside the Larong Temple and on cliffs, thereby manifesting his supreme wisdom, boundless dharma powers, and the wonderful nature of the Buddha-dharma. He could make the sun stop revolving and ride a boulder as one rides a horse.
Ven. fourth Junmai Baima Dorje Rinpoche (the current one) descended into this world in the year of the dog according to the Tibetan calendar. When the rinpoche was born, a prajna bird (dharma protecting bird) spit from its mouth a green pine stone (one of the seven treasures) onto the balcony of the rinpoche’s home. A Buddhist image of Green Tara with clear facial features appeared on that green pine stone. (It is now kept in the rinpoche’s treasure chest of holy objects.) Various other auspicious signs manifested at the birth of the rinpoche, such as a rainbow in the sky, the beautiful sound of dharma drums resounding in space, and the wonderful sound of whistling and conch shells being blown.
In an oral teaching, the dakini Zere Kazhuo recognized Ven. Junmai Baima Dorje Rinpoche as an incarnation of Vajravarahi. When the rinpoche was five years old, the national master of Bhutan, H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, recognized the rinpoche as the reincarnation of Ven. Junmai Yongdeng Gyatso Rinpoche and personally signed and issued a recognition certificate. H.H. Dharma King Penor and H.E. Dharma King Rabjam also personally wrote recognition certificates.
At the age of about three, the young rinpoche transformed a thick Tibetan knife into a knot. After passing through many hands, that knife is now at Hua Zang Si in San Francisco, U.S.A., where a special place has been established to show it for public worship and veneration. The rinpoche currently resides at the Shechen Monastery. He has received initiations from the esoteric lineage of H.H. Panchen Lama X and other persons of great holiness and virtue. The rinpoche benefits all living beings by applying the wisdom and realization of a great Bodhisattva.
