YIDAM-DHARMA INITIATION MASTER OF THE 17TH KARMAPA: H.H. DHARMA KING GONGBAO DUMU QUJI
H.H. Dharma King Dumu Quji was conferred the title of “Buddha-Dharma National Master” by an emperor in the Ming Dynasty. The meaning of “Quji” is Dharma King. H.H. Dharma King Gongbao Dumu Quji XVIII is the Vajra Master of H.H. the 17 th Karmapa Great Jewel Dharma King. He performed the yidam dharma initiation for H.H. the 17 th Karmapa Great Jewel Dharma King. He is the only one of great holiness and virtue who cleansed through a ritual bathing H.H. the 17 th Karmapa and formally put the Great Jewel Dharma King robes onto H.H. the 17 th Karmapa. He did so at the respectful request of H.E. Tai Situ Rinpoche, who is one of the four great Dharma Princes. During the time H.H. Dharma King Gongbao Dumu Quji XVIII performed initiations for the Karmapa, he saw in a supernatural state the ancient, primordial Buddha—Dorje Chang Buddha—bless the Karmapa. That ancient Buddha manifested as H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. H.H. Dharma King Gongbao Dumu Quji XVIII wrote the following about this real experience: “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the highest refuge countless living beings can rely upon to attain liberation. I prostrate to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.”
我在这一世为第十七世噶玛巴·邬金赤烈多杰，大宝法王，首次穿袍，给他灌顶传本尊法的前几日，我在境界中看到噶玛巴的头顶上出现金刚总持放光加持噶玛巴，很快金刚总持变成了一尊身穿黄袍、长髪齐肩、庄严威武的坐相，背后有石山、水池、房屋、红花、绿松，下有木地板，当时我知道多杰羌佛降世了，但是没有看到具体行踪。这么多年我随时注意，观察这件事，最近得到《多杰羌佛第三世》一书，应该是二十一度母的加持，当翻到 21 页看到圣像时，让我十分震惊，这就是我曾经在境界中看到的多杰羌佛，一模一样，毫无差别，包括所在地的环境完全相同。我今严肃确认并敬贺，众生法缘成熟，获得佛陀光明智慧的如意，正法宝书《多杰羌佛第三世》总摄八万四千法门之宝库，展现佛教史无前例之五明，是无边众生解脱依怙最高处。南无多杰羌佛第三世！

AFFIRMATION AND CONGRATULATIONS
With boundless gratitude, I prostrate to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!
In this lifetime, I formally put the Great Jewel Dharma King robes on to the 17th Karmapa, H.H. Urgyen Trinley Dorje, and performed the yidam dharma initiation for him, which included transmitting dharma to him. A few days before I did that, I saw in a supernatural state the Buddha Vajradhara appear over the head of the Karmapa. The Buddha Vajradhara was radiating light that empowered the Karmapa. Very soon after that, the Buddha Vajradhara metamorphosed into one who was sitting down. He was wearing a yellow robe. His long hair was at shoulder level, and He looked dignified and imposing. Behind Him were high stones, a pool, rooms, red flowers, and green pines. Below Him was a wooden deck. At that time, I knew Dorje Chang Buddha had come to this world, but I did not see His exact whereabouts. During all these many years, I have constantly kept that scene in mind and have reviewed it.
I recently received the book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. This was probably the result of being blessed by the twenty-one Taras. When I turned to page twenty-one and saw that holy image of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, I was totally shocked. It was the exact image of Dorje Chang Buddha that I saw in that supernatural state. There was not the slightest difference between the two, including the setting that surrounded H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.
I now solemnly affirm and offer congratulations for the following: The karmic conditions of living beings to encounter dharma have matured, for they can now benefit from the brilliant wisdom of the Buddha as they had wished. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is a precious book of true Buddha-dharma, a treasury that incorporates 84,000 dharma methods. It demonstrates accomplishments in the Five Vidyas unprecedented in the history of Buddhism. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the highest refuge countless living beings can rely upon to attain liberation.
I prostrate to H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III!
