The book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, published early in 2008, revealed that a great buddha had incarnated in this world with the purpose of correcting the erroneous and evil views held by many in the world today and to introduce new dharma and reintroduce lost dharma that is suitable for this age and time. Leading Buddhists in the world today recognized this being as Buddha Vajradhara, the source of all true dharma and who manifested as Buddha Dipankara, the teacher of the buddha of our era, Shakyamuni Buddha. The dharma that Shakyamuni Buddha brought to this world over 2,500 years ago was suitable for various types and levels of practitioners but many incorrect translations and interpretations as well as the loss of many of these teachings has caused that dharma to lack its former power. In addition, we are living in what the Buddha predicted would be the “Dharma-Ending Age” whereby it is difficult for people to understand and practice the incomplete and often erroneous dharma that we do still have. Most people no longer believe that it is possible to obtain enlightenment in one lifetime or that individuals are able to manifest the miracles that were common in Shakyamuni’s time in India and later in places where advanced forms of Buddhism flourished like Tibet. 

[The class is open to anyone wishing to learn more about Buddhism. There is no charge for the lecture.]

Tibetan Healing Center

Palden Gyatso was born in 1933 and raised in a small Tibetan village. At the age of eighteen he became an ordained Buddhist Monk at one of Tibet's most famous monasteries, Drepung Monastery. In 1959, Palden was jailed along with thousands of other religious.

The Chinese under its leader Mao then undertook the 'Cultural Revolution' which was aimed at destroying Tibetan culture and producing 'thought reform' amongst the Tibetan people.

Palden endured his suffering and remained in prisons and labor camps for the next 33 years, where he was a victim of severe religious and class oppression. He was exposed to various forms of indoctrination and torture aimed at trying to make him change his ways and accept the Chinese communist/socialist ideology. Throughout his imprisonment, Palden resisted the Chinese repression and served as an inspiration to his fellow inmates.

Released on August 25, 1992, from Drapchi prison in Lhasa, Palden Gyatso had served more years behind bars than any other surviving Tibetan that has reached the West.
