Dharma Teacher Yongding was a disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III who His Holiness personally taught. His meritorious actions were outstanding, and his realization was extraordinary. He conducted himself as the ancient virtuous monks did. Dharma Teacher Yongding was a man of true cultivation and true realization. His good deeds and holy feats were countless, and his dharma powers were amazing. He was a widely praised individual who could communicate with the heavenly realm and the hell realm. In his youth before he became a monk, his native town experienced a great drought not seen in one hundred years. Buddhist dharma masters and Daoist adepts tried for several months to solve the drought but could not. Not a drop of water could be found in that town. Dharma Teacher Yong Ding wrote his name on a piece of paper and invoked rain to fall. The sun was blazing in the sky. About five minutes later, there was pouring rain. When the Dayi County government was building the Master Wan Ko Yee (H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III) Museum in 1994, the dharma teacher consulted with the Emperor of Heaven about the weather for the upcoming three-month period. Each day, his weather forecasts were written for all to see in the mess hall at the work site. Those forecasts were not off by one bit for that entire three-month period. One time the dharma teacher lifted his hand and thereby split a tree trunk a kilometer away from him. The tree was so wide that only two people together could embrace it.
