H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu Holiest Tathagata are among the most wondrous works ever created in the history of the earthly realm. The reason why His Holiness created such works in this world is as follows. When people describe the accomplishments of certain dharma kings or rinpoches, they frequently say that so-and-so great rinpoche left a footprint on a stone. In so doing, these people speak of the highest Buddha-dharma skills as being nothing more than the skills of a stonemason. They leave the impression that rinpoches of great holiness are only able to leave handprints or footprints on stones. There are even some people with deep karmic hindrances who go so far as to say that dharma kings and rinpoches are simply those who work miracles on stones. They say that dharma kings and rinpoches have no skills other than leaving imprints on stones. There are even those who think that such imprints were made from steel drills.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III created these miraculous sculptures containing mysterious mist in order to make people around the world understand the magnificence of the Buddha-dharma and the omnipotence of a Buddha, in order that the Buddha-dharma not be further insulted, and in order to fulfill a formal prediction made by H.H. Mahavairocana Tathagata. These miraculous works can be seen and touched. However, they cannot be created by anyone who is not a being of the highest holiness.
The mysterious mist in these sculptures can be found floating among wondrously carved, seemingly changing, and intriguingly interconnected hanging rock formations. Why is such art called sculptures containing mysterious mist? It is because in those sculptures there is the mysterious and beautiful scene of auspicious mist swirling in between hanging rock formations. This is a manifestation of the realization of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III in the craftsmanship vidya and the inner realization vidya.
For example, there is the sculpture entitled “Mysterious Boulder With Mist.” After carving the material into the form of an oval boulder, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III created two grottoes inside the boulder, each of which contains its own scenery. When you look inside the right grotto, you will see thick mist enveloping everything. The structure of the carved scenery inside this hole is vague, since it cannot be clearly seen through the mist. You are left with the impression that the mist is a few dozen yards deep inside the hole when it is actually only three or four feet deep. When you look inside the left grotto, you will see that there is no mist at all. You will clearly see the structure of the carved scenery inside this hole. The material used to carve those two grottoes was the same, the colors applied to both of them were the same, and their depth is the same. The carving skills and inner-realization of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III caused this mysterious phenomenon of one side containing thick, enveloping mist and the other side containing no mist at all. What is even more amazing is that this sculpture containing mysterious mist can even cure people of their illnesses. After many people viewed this holy sculpture created by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III for only one or two minutes, their stubborn illnesses that had plagued them for dozens of years were cured.
It is no wonder that people praise these sculptures containing mysterious mist as the only form of art in human history that contains natural mist. People also praise them as unique and precious masterpieces that cannot be found in nature. These works of art are one type of sculpture created by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.
