The Lantos Foundation for Human Rights and Justice understands the vital role played by revered spiritual leaders in advancing the cause of peace and benevolence in every part of the world. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is such a revered leader. His Holiness is an individual of extraordinary talents and accomplishments who is honored worldwide both for his spiritual leadership, as well as for his remarkable artistic and humanitarian achievements. He is a teacher for peace, equality, and spiritual liberation.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is recognized by leaders of many different divisions of Buddhism in the world as the third incarnation of the primordial Buddha, Dorje Chang Buddha, also known as Buddha Vajradhara, and has established beautiful temples of worship in California, Washington D.C., New York, and abroad that guide people toward goodness.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III has made his home in California for over 10 years and has tremendous respect for the American society as he once paid eloquent tribute to this country by saying, “The American people are kind and noble. People can freely believe in the United States, a country that is spiritually wealthy, powerful, and blessed.” He has spared no effort in contributing to the United States. His talents and accomplishments have become spiritual and cultural assets of the United States.
Through his teachings and his art, His Holiness has worked tirelessly to spread the universal principles of morality and civilization, which include compassion towards others, selflessness, and continual striving for enlightenment and liberation.
We endorse the spiritual and humanitarian objectives of His Holiness and his continual effort to promote peace, benevolence, the dignity of mankind, and the prosperity and strength of the United States.
