Layman Zhao Yusheng is a disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. He had terminal illness, but he repented his black karma sincerely and completely. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha performed an Inner-tantric Initiation for him, in which he was received by the Yidam of the Dharma-Amitabha Buddha. At his passing in June, 2017, Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva came to take his consciousness to the Western World of Ultimate Bliss. Below are two stories, told by Layman Zhao Yusheng himself, and someone who were very close to him, before and after his passing separately.
Buddhist disciple Zhao Yusheng received a transmission of Buddha Dharma that is true and real
Recounting of the special and wonderful event by Zhao Yusheng
June 28, 2017
My name is Zhao Yusheng, my Dharma name is Yusheng. I am a Buddhist disciple. I am also the executive vice president at the Yibao Artistic Building Materials Ltd. in Foshan. I used to be a disciple under Hengsheng Rinpoche, a master in the Esoteric Sect. Hengsheng Rinpoche was also the chairman of the Yibao Artistic Building Materials Ltd in Foshan. He asked me to do things together with him that caused damages to Yibao Artistic Building Materials Ltd. In Foshan and hurt people’s interest so that his own personal and business interests could be maintained. Moreover, I carried out things according to his evil rules. Consequently, bad retributions have occupied me. When I realized that I had already invoked quite a bit of bad karma and that I got an incurable, nasty disease as a result, I decided to leave Hengsheng Rinpoche and the Esoteric sect. I returned to the pure teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha, and I followed H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III to learn the correct teachings, views, and knowledge in the Tripitaka. But because I am naturally such a dimwit, I found it very difficult to truly understand the meaning of the Tripitaka. That and all the karmic deeds that I had accrued since the beginningless time, I couldn’t go into samadhi when I practiced meditation. My body and mind languished and I became weaker by the day. The doctor told me: “You need to decide whether to have a funeral here in the US or back in China.” At this time, a very kind and compassionate dharma sister consoled me on the phone and said: “You need to let go of everything. Carry no worry about anything in this world. Go and beseech Buddha Master to send you to the Western World of Ultimate Bliss.”
I flew to LA on June 27, 2017. I presented the Buddha Master with my request. Buddha Master asked me: “Can you let go of everything in the world? Can you really do it? Can you really not care at all?” I answered: “I let go of everything in the world. I only wish to go to the Wester World of Ultimate Bliss.” Buddha Master asked me: “Are you sincere? Does that come from the bottom of your heart?” I said: “I have no second thoughts. I beseech Buddha Master to please send me to the Western World of Ultimate Bliss.” Buddha Masters then said to me: “You have already done away with any worldly attachment. You are so sincere, yet so sick. Under these double karmic causes and conditions, your Dharmic affinity has become mature. Alright! I shall transmit to you a great Dharma just based on the mature convergence of these two dharmic conditions.” Buddha Master said: “It doesn’t count if it is just I saying it. I will ask Amitabha Buddha to speak to you directly.” Then Buddha Master started transmitting the great Dharma. It is really something difficult to encounter in millions of kalpas! After going through the things which Buddha Master asked me to pay attention to, I underwent a Determination by Holy Selection, and my Yidam was determined to be Amitabha Buddha! I chose a place that was about five meters away, and I beseeched Buddha Master to stand there to transmit the Dharma to me.
As the Dharma transmission started, Buddha Master began to pray. He told me not to close my eyes and let me chant the holy name of the Buddha. I chanted Namo Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, Namo Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva, Namo Manjushri Bodhisattva, Namo Vajrapani Bodhisattva, and Namo Maitreya Bodhisattva. Then when I chanted Namo Amitabha Buddha, suddenly I was very excited because a loud bell sound came in my ears. Amitabha Buddha suddenly appeared in the air and emitted golden light as He slowly descended into the altar. I quickly prostrated myself to Amitabha Buddha. Amitabha Buddha touched my head and pointed to the west to let me see the gate to the World of Ultimate Bliss. Light rays shone from inside the gate, and golden light enveloped the outside of the gate. Its brightness was a million times more than the sun. Of course, I cannot name this multiple very precisely, but it was several times stronger than the sun at noontime. That is why I say that the light intensity was a million times stronger than the sun. At that time, I heard Buddha Master say to me very happily: “You have succeeded! Your Yidam, Amitabha Buddha, has accepted you!” I was so happy and excited beyond compare. I kowtowed desperately to express my gratitude. I have tremendous gratitude towards the supremely revered Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III who is my benevolent Buddha Master! Additionally, Amitabha Buddha said to me that at the time when my life ends, it will be so arranged that Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva will come to take me to go to the middle-middle level! That is exactly what Buddha Master had foretold me earlier! But, I also know well that the reason why I could have this fortunate outcome is all because the benevolent Buddha Master had removed a lot of my black karma for me. I had chanted Buddha’s name for thirty-some years. All I had hoped is I could go to the Western World of Ultimate Bliss without difficulty at the end of my life. I had never dared to wish for any level in there. Today, I saw Amitabha Buddha promise me in person to arrange for Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva to come and take me to the middle-middle level in the Western World of Ultimate Bliss! It is all because H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III gave His grace to me that I could have such wonderful and special karmic conditions!
This kind of unparalleled wonderful and special great Dharma is only possessed by my benevolent Buddha Master, Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III! It would have been futile had I been chanting Buddha’s name by myself, even if I ended up losing my voice doing it. There would be no guarantee that I could reach even the lower-lower level should that be the case! My benevolent Buddha Master could just raise my soul to the Western World of Ultimate Bliss at the end of my life, but Buddha Master looked at my karmic conditions and transmitted to me an unparalleled wonderful and special great Dharma where my Yidam, Amitabha Buddha, came to touch my head in person and told me about the arrangement for me to go to the middle-middle level, allowing me to rest my worries completely. As a result, I was able to put down all the baggage in my mind! I am worry-free! I will cultivate myself well, following my Buddha Master, for the rest of my life, so that I can remove the impure karma in me to correspond to the Western World of Ultimate Bliss!
I hold tremendous gratitude for my benevolent Buddha Master, Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, to allow me to personally see Namo Amitabha Buddha, to have my head touched by the Buddha, and to be given a promise. Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, however, said to me in public at that time: “Don’t thank me! What ability or merit could I have! This is the karmic connection between Amitabha Buddha and you from the beginningless time. How would I have such Dharma ability! I am a common Buddhist cultivator just like you all.” Upon hearing Him saying it, people got into a clamor to oppose it, saying: “Namo Amitabha Buddha was invited to come by none other than Buddha Master!” Buddha Master kept shaking His head and said: “People’s talk can surely be thunderous! Even I said no, you still say yes!”
My dear family and friends! I am a stage-four terminal lung cancer patient. Going through a major illness like this, I have personally experienced the misery of feeling like dying rather than living. I have no pomposity. All I have are pains in my body. I dare not say anything false to add a single shred of evil karma to me. Today, I feel blissful and happy beyond compare! I feel as if I was in a dream! All my blessings are given to me by my compassionate, benevolent Buddha Master! I didn’t dare to wish for anything at the beginning. I had never thought my benevolent Buddha Master immediately transmitted a great Dharma to me! This Buddhist disciple Yusheng holds tremendous gratitude for the compassion of the benevolent Buddha Master!
I vow to say that this recounting record is true and real, or I shall descend to the Hall of Uninterrupted Suffering! At the same time, I am willing to return the merits of this recounting to my family and friends who are still lost in the way. I am extremely fortunate that I could have paid a respectful visit to my benevolent Buddha Master, Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III! I hold extreme gratitude for my benevolent Buddha Master, Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III! I hold gratitude towards Namo Amitabha Buddha! And I hold gratitude towards all Buddhist disciples who are present here!
Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III! Namo Amitabha Buddha!

I personally witnessed the special and wonderful passing of layman Zhao Yusheng
told by Ms Mao Meimei, September 2, 2017
Amitabha Buddha! Dharma masters, rinpoches, kind and virtuous people, my name is Mao Meimei. I would like to tell you the special and wonderful passing of layman Zhao Yusheng, which I witnessed personally myself here. I was afraid that I might miss something, so I wrote it down.
Zhao Yusheng used to be a disciple under Chen Baosheng who told him to chant: “homage to the supreme vajra master! My achievement completely relies on my master, it is completely based on my master being happy” every day. Zhao Yusheng said that he was helping Chen Baosheng to create forgeries at the building material company which resulted in a loss of over eight hundred thousand just last year alone. He also said he helped him make false promotions to swindle people. He said: “The more I learn from Chen Baosheng, the worse I have become. Now I have got sinful karma all over myself, my body has got cancer, and I feel a lot of pain!” Zhao Yusheng knew he was hurt by the evil teachings of Chen Baosheng. He only saw Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III at the late stage of his cancer. When he saw Buddha Master, he repented piously to Buddha Master. Buddha Master said to him: “It is not important to say repenting words. What is important for you is to cultivate yourself well, truly correct your bad deeds to good deeds, so that you can benefit the society and living beings.” Zhao Yusheng then repented sincerely from the bottom of the heart, vowing that he would not be a rinpoche any longer, he would not want to learn a single bit of the evil teaching anymore and he would just die without any care. All he wanted was to go to the Buddha-land. He made as a large vow as he could.
Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III held a ceremony of taking refuge for Zhao Yusheng. Buddha Master saw that dharma brother Zhao Yusheng was very sincere and his karmic conditions had matured, so He transmitted a Dharma to him. The Yidam, Amitabha Buddha, was invited by Buddha Master to arrive in person. The Buddha touched his head, transmitted Dharma to him, and let him see the gate to the Western World of Ultimate Bliss. Amitabha Buddha told dharma brother Zhao Yusheng that He would send Namo Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva to take him to the middle-middle level. Ever since dharma brother Yusheng received the Dharma transmission from Amitabha Buddha and returned to San Francisco, he had kept the practice every day and would not talk much. His daughter, dharma sister Zhao Chen, and I waited day after day, not knowing when Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva would come to take dharma brother Yusheng away. I was torn because I had a business to manage in Washington D.C., but at the same time, I also wanted to witness dharma brother Yusheng attaining his achievement. It was such a long wait! Finally, we had to respectfully request a direction from Buddha Master on the phone. Buddha Master told us: “He will not go just yet. You should leave his health condition to the doctors and the nurses.”
The day before dharma brother Yusheng’s passing, he and I sat on the bench outside together. He said to me: “Chen Baosheng is a devil, a demon, a sinner, a cheating criminal, and a swindler. Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva wants me to uncover his crimes. The Bodhisattva told me She will come to take me away tomorrow. She wants me to show people the greatness of the Dharma at the time when She takes me away. But I am worried that I will become dull-minded and forget to uncover his crimes when Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva comes to take my away tomorrow. I told dharma brother Yusheng: “Don’t be afraid! Don’t be afraid! You are not gonna be dull-minded! Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva will definitely come to take you away tomorrow!”
It was about 2:30 PM on August 24, at which time I was taking a nap when dharma brother Yusheng came in to wake me after going to the restroom outside by himself. He told us that he was ready to go, and we must sincerely learn Buddha Dharma from Buddha Master. He said let’s meet again in the Western World of Ultimate Bliss. He wanted to clean himself. We felt very sad at that time. Is such a real and live person really going to be gone? We took out the clothes which we had prepared for him earlier. After he put on the clothes, Zhao Chen and I smelled a special fragrance. Dharma Brother Yusheng then said: “Now I am going to show the greatness of the Dharma and to prove H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has the most supreme Buddha Dharma by my liberation from birth and death. Cheng Baosheng is an evil, a demon! He is an evil master, a huge cheat, and a sinner!” He said: “The real true Dharma of Tathagata resides with our greatest Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, my Buddha Master! Alright! I said enough. Namo Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva is here to take me!”
After dharma brother Yusheng finished his word, his whole body was glowing. Then I saw the huge and tall beyond compare Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, emitting a strong white light all over, having colorful light rays surrounding the Bodhisattva, looking extremely majestic, standing above dharma brother Yusheng’s head. At that time, I saw the dharma brother Yusheng’s soul or mind consciousness dashing out of the top of his head towards Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva and rose away in the air. Staring at the scene, suddenly I could no longer see Avalokiteshvara and dharma brother Yusheng. I ran out to the yard as fast as I could. Then my phone rang at that time. I looked up and saw dharma brother Yusheng leaving on a white cloud following Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva.
I also saw the tree in the yard dropping fragrant nectar. The Dharma masters from Huazangsi Temple arrived first. They also saw the raining of fragrant nectar when they came. A Dharma master even videotaped the nectar coming down. The nectar was very special because it disappeared as soon as it reached the ground.
I was not the only person who witnessed the special and wonderful process. A 92-year old lady from Malaysia who lives across the street also saw that Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva came to take away dharma brother Yusheng! That was really a holy feat so difficult to see in millions of kalpas. I hold gratitude for Namo H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. I hold gratitude for Namo Amitabha Buddha! I hold gratitude for Namo Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva!
