The World Peace Prize Awarding Council Together With Religious Leaders Title Awarding Council: The Conferment of the Pope of Buddhism to His Holiness Dorje Chang Buddha III is Unchangeable

As early as January 2018, the World Peace Prize Awarding Council and the World Peace Prize Religious Leaders Title Awarding Council came to the resolution to canonize H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III as the Pope Of World Buddhism. Still, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III refused to accept it. The World Buddhism Association Headquarters received the canonization decree and the scepter to broadcast true Buddha Dharma and benefit all living beings. When the World Buddhism Association Headquarters respectfully presented the canonization decree for the Pope Of World Buddhism and the scepter to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III said: “Shakyamuni Buddha sits majestically at the top of the scepter. We should respect Nomo Shakyamuni Buddha.” Then He held the scepter high above the Head, holding palms with a single hand to signify respect. However, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha said that He is only a humbled practitioner of cultivation. He sternly refused the canonization and returned the decree and the scepter to the two councils.
