Recognitions and Congratulations - From VEN. ZANGXIA RINPOCHE


   GRATEFULNESS

  I prostrate to the ancient Buddha, the greatest leader of Buddhism, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu!

  First, I would like to thank the greatest leader of Buddhism for your compassion in that you have again descended to the human realm and have manifested the highest wisdom of Buddhism through the Five Vidyas!

  Second, I would like to sincerely thank H.H. Dharma King Omniscience Jamyang Lungdok Gyaltsen, H.H. Mighty Lion Dharma King Renzeng Nima, and the other ancient Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Those few holy people led us to find Dorje Chang Buddha, our supreme ancient Buddha, and thereby enabled all living beings to have the ultimate refuge in this Dharma Enging Age!

  I worship the Buddha of the three times in the ten directions.

  The boundless living beings now have good fortune, 

  for they are able to encounter Buddha Vajradhara, the greatest leader of Buddhism, 

  who has come to this world to save sentient beings.
