Recognitions and Congratulations - From H.E. GREEN JEWEL CROWN KARMAPA HARMA KING JIEZHONG
I prostrate to the Buddha Vajradhara, H.H. Yangwo Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu:
A Treasury of True Buddha-Dharma about the Buddha Vajradhara is a concrete expression of the highest Buddha-dharma wisdom and abilities. Out of compassion, H.H. Great Dharma King has given discourses on the dharma that have allowed living beings to understand all ultimate truths of the universe. His Holiness teaches wonderful and suitable dharma methods whereby one can become a holy being of great accomplishment in the dharma in this very lifetime. A Treasury of True Buddha-Dharma contains the traditional Tibetan sciences of the Five Vidyas based mainly upon the Five Great Treatises of exoteric Buddhism and the perfect dharma of the Four Division of Yoga of esoteric Buddhism. This book allows all sentient beings living in this Dharma-Ending Age to personally realize the highest and ultimate fruit of great wisdom attained through Buddhism.
We who practice Buddhism will use H.H. Great Dharma King's teachings on the dharma as our standard, will devoutly and respectfully practice such teachings, and will reach the goals stated in such teachings in order to save sentient beings in the sea of suffering.
We pray that the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, and venerable Dharma Protecting Deities in the Three Spheres will protect and bless H.H. Great Dharma King so that His Holiness may forever abide in peace and health, forever teach the dharma, and forever benefit and bring happiness to the countless living beings!

H.E. the current 6th Karmapa Green Jewel Crown Dharma King Jiezhong was born in 1967 in a region called Laduo in Changdu, Tibet. When he was born, a rainbow in the sky surrounded his house, and beautiful, wondrous, heavenly music could be heard. The 16th Karmapa, H.H. Great Jewel Dharma King Rangjiong Rigpe Dorje, specially sent a recognition certificate from India to recognize that H.E. Dharma King Jiezhong was in his prior lifetime the Green Jewel Crown Dharma King Jiezhong Rinpoche.
Regarding the Karma Kagyu dharma kings, generally speaking, the disciple and master alternate their respective positions lifetime after lifetime, resulting in one person teaching or “returning” dharma to the other person who taught that dharma in the prior lifetime. For example, H.H. the 7th Karmapa Black Jewel Crown Dharma King Chodrag Gyatso was the master of the H.E. 1st Green Jewel Crown Dharma King Gama Chenglie. Additionally, after H.H. the 7th Black Jewel Crown Dharma King reincarnated as H.H. the 8th Karmapa Mikyo Dorje Black Jewel Crown Dharma King, H.E. the 1st Green Jewel Crown Dharma King Gama Chenglie became the master of H.H. the 8th Black Jewel Crown Dharma King. H.E. Gama Chenglie is the Karmapa Green Jewel Crown Dharma King Jiezhong. H.E. the 2nd Jiezhong Rinpoche Huajiong was summoned to the capital of China, Beijing, by Emperor Qianlong, who conferred upon him the title of Hutuketu Dharma King. H.H. the 14th Karmapa Great Jewel Dharma King recognized that the transformation body of his cause or undertaking is H.E. the Green Jewel Crown Dharma King and therefore specially bestowed upon him the green jewel crown. The Ugyen Second Buddha Guru Padmasambhava prophesied the following: Whoever encounters Jiezhong Rinpoche can receive great benefits.
