“Lifting the Pestle onto the Platform” Reported by Numerous News Media

Note: The journalist who wrote this report did so right after the Dharma assembly and before she was able to read the certification issued by the lawyers that documented the weight of the Vajra Pestle. As such, the weight was not reported correctly. According to the on-site weighing that was certified by the lawyers, the Vajra Pestle which H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III lifted with one hand in public weights 434.8 lb and H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha surpassed the standard by 59 levels.


According to the teachings imparted by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, to learn from Buddha to cultivate oneself, one must practice in accordance with the Xiaman Most Excellent Oceanic Mind Essence and the Most Excellent Enlightenment State of Emptiness Oceanic Mind Essence; abstain from doing any bad deeds, do all kinds of good deeds, and benefit living beings. Only this is the proper undertaking. That is why His Holiness the Buddha did not agree that the Exam of Lifting the Pestle onto the Platform should be conducted. In order to obtain the support of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III for conducting the Exam, the Holy Gurus deliberately set up a ruse and then requested that His Holiness the Buddha be present to observe the proceedings. Consequently, when H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did come, the situation was set up in such a way that His Holiness the Buddha could not decline to help and took action to resolve the conundrum.
