 IT IS TRULY AMAZING! A MAGIC BEAM FALLS FROM THE SKY!


A magic beam that emitted extremely strong red light and reached all the way up to the sky again descended from the sky and stood vertically on the earth. Due to that beam, the sun changed color, emitting blue, green, purple, and red rings of light. When the magic beam descended, the Tibetan seed syllable characters “Ong, Ah, Hong” appeared in the clouds. Those seed syllables characters were in white, red, and blue, respectively. It was truly miraculous. A photograph I took of this true scene accompanies this article. 



On February 28, 2005, I was fortunate enough to worship the Buddhas in the mandala (i.e. holy building containing a Buddhist altar area and the immediate surrounding property) of Great Dharma King Yangwo Yisinubu. The Great Dharma King is the Vajradhara (supreme leader) of both exoteric and esoteric Buddhism. That mandala is located in the Los Angeles area and contains a Dharma King bowl that has been handed down and used in nectar ceremonies. In the middle of the altar hangs a tanka (a Tibetan religious painting on fabric) of the Long Life Buddha that is worshiped. That Buddha’s body is coral red, and a ring of green light hovers over that Buddha’s head. On the left of that tanka is Mahakala, and on the right is Sri-maha-devi. Both of them are dharma-protecting Bodhisattvas of esoteric Buddhism. On another side of the altar is the three-dimensional tanka of the Green Tara mandala. The entire body of Green Tara is green, and she is sitting amid the clouds. The twenty-one Taras that are neatly arranged behind Green Tara look dignified and powerful. The King of the Brahman-heaven (a four-faced Buddha also called Sikhin) and various dharma-protecting deities are in front of and on either side of Green Tara. With austere expressions of their faces, they protect Green Tara. On another side of the mandala of Great Dharma King Yangwo Yisinubu are a few rooms occupied by disciples of the Great Dharma King. 



It was a bright and beautiful afternoon in California. After 3:00 in the afternoon, I went to the outer-mandala area (i.e. an area outside of the building) and saw that the clouds in the sky were changing in a very strange way. I grabbed my camera and took pictures of the holy scene in the sky above the front door to the mandala. Right at this time, an auspicious wind suddenly began blowing. The clouds began to move. A moment later, a magic red beam descended from the heights of the blue sky. The beam had a strong and dazzling brightness to it. This towering beam had the diameter of a bowl. It radiated in all directions a strong and clearly visible silver-white light. This beam of light faced the middle of the entrance to the Buddhist altar area. It descended from the sky straight down to the earth. Its red light slowly spread throughout the entrance to the inner-mandala area (i.e. the area of the building in which the altar is located).



When I had finished worshipping the Buddhas in the afternoon, I stepped outside the front door of the inner-mandala. The green grass looked like a soft carpet. The water in the pool was lovely. Towering trees stood straight. On the right side of the outer-mandala area, a coniferous tree seemed so high that it could almost reach the clouds. It stood perfectly straight, and its top faced the sky. The left side of the outer-mandala area was just as beautiful as the right. 



At this time, the sunshine was clear and enchanting. I saw that the clouds in the blue sky were changing and felt it was quite extraordinary. It was an auspicious scene. Then, that towering beam stood up straight before me. It was like a huge tube of sunlight millions and millions of feet high. It ascended all the way to the heights of the sky. There was strong sunlight that day. Still, the brightness of that beam was several hundred thousand times stronger than the brightness of the sun. It was a living substance that was before my eyes. 
At the time, I was completely shocked. When I regained my composure, I immediately pressed down the shutter of my camera. From my camera lens, I could see that at the closed doorway area of the mandala there were many round objects suspended in the air. In the area around the light beam, there were rays of light radiating. The rays of light were extremely strong. Amid all of that, there was a gigantic green dharma wheel that commanded my attention. It moved upward, downward, to the left, and to the right. It looked just like the Vajra wheel that the Great Dharma King ordinarily uses. 



I presume that this mandala of the Great Dharma King surely is no ordinary holy place. Otherwise, how could such auspicious sights appear? Furthermore, I took pictures of those auspicious sights while I saw them clearly. Unfortunately, Great Dharma King Yangwo Yisinubu was not at that place. Nobody told me that there were any auspicious signs. I simply took a stroll alone in the outer-mandala area so that I could appreciate the scenery. It was at that time when I discovered extraordinary signs descending from the sky. I took pictures of the holy sight of the magic beam that descended from the sky.



After using my connections, I was able to telephone the Great Dharma King and ask him what the karmic meaning of this dharma manifestation is. The Great Dharma King said, “I am a humble person. I do not have the merit to manifest the dharma! The magnificence of the Buddhas is what all of you should sincerely face.”

A MAGIC BEAM AGAIN FALLS FROM THE SKY; A FEMALE REPORTER FAINTS


On March 21, 2005 in Los Angeles, a magic beam that emitted extremely strong red light again fell from the sky and stood vertically on the earth! Its brightness was far stronger than that of the sun. When it appeared, the sun immediately radiated colorful rings of light. What is even more amazing is that unusual Tibetan characters appeared in the clouds. I was there and took photographs of those true scenes.


On March 5th, a Chinese newspaper called Chinese American Times reported on a magic beam that descended from the sky. That article was about my experiences on February 28th, when I suddenly saw a dazzling and wide beam that emitted red light. That beam was so high it reached the sky. That event took place at the mandala (i.e. holy building containing a Buddhist altar area and the immediate surrounding property) of Great Dharma King Yangwo Yisinubu. The Great Dharma King is the Vajradhara (supreme leader) of both exoteric and esoteric Buddhism. That mandala is located in the Los Angeles area and contains a Dharma King bowl that has been handed down and used in nectar ceremonies. The beam radiated bright red light in all directions. From the blue sky, it descended straight down to the earth, where it faced the middle of the doorway to the mandala building in which the altar is located. It seemed millions and millions of feet high. There is no way to measure its height. I took pictures of that occurrence and reported on it. Over the phone, I asked the Great Dharma King what the underlying karmic conditions of such an event were. I asked what type of merit the Great Dharma King possesses to have caused such a manifestation of dharma. The Great Dharma King did not give a detailed explanation. He simply said, “I am a humble person. I do not have the merit to manifest the dharma. The magnificence of the Buddhas is what all of you should sincerely face.” 



After this happened, I always felt that there was something extremely marvelous about it. I thought that the mandala of the Great Dharma King, which contains the nectar bowl, is surely no ordinary holy place. I also heard from a Buddhist monastic that the beam of light was definitely not of this world. I then felt very bad that I did not try to embrace that magic beam. Had I done that, perhaps I would have experienced some unusually good luck. Thus, so that I might see more sights of this nature, I stayed in a meditation room within the mandala. I held my camera every day in the hope that another wondrous scene would appear in the sky. Unfortunately, I met with disappointment every day.



On March 21st, the southern California sky was clear. At about noon, I took a stroll in the backyard area of the mandala to get some sunshine. The grass looked like a soft carpet. The water in the pool was a clear blue. I sat at the edge of the pool and looked up to the sky. I saw that the clouds were arranged in an orderly way. It was extremely auspicious. This auspicious sign was similar to that of February 28th before I took a picture of the magic beam. Therefore, I immediately got my camera and began taking pictures of the auspicious clouds in the sky. At this time, Wu Hsiu-Ying, who is from Taiwan, walked out into the backyard.



I do not know how much time passed before I started to see sparks emitting various colors flow before my eyes. The clouds in the sky were continuously changing. Suddenly, a towering beam containing red light slowly descended from the blue sky. It landed vertically at the middle of the doorway to the mandala altar area containing the nectar bowl. It was about a dozen meters from me. It was extremely bright and dazzling. Most of the light from the sun was eclipsed by this beam. Moreover, the sun began to change colors. Colorful rings of light appeared around the sun. The clouds in the sky suddenly became colorful auspicious clouds with hues of red, yellow, blue, green, and purple. Instantly, the mandala building became red. I was so moved I could not repress my emotions. I pressed down the shutter of my camera. At this time, my only thoughts were, “Your opportunity has come. Quickly rush forward and embrace the beam!” Right when I gave rise to such thoughts, the magic beam that reached the sky emitted a stronger light. I simply felt that there was an expanse of white before me. I then fell unconscious. When I regained consciousness, people were energetically yelling my name and giving me warm water to drink. According to what all of them told me, I fainted, fell on the ground, and lost consciousness.



When I completely regained my consciousness, the first thing we did was print out my photographs. Kuan Chu, who was at the mandala during that time, discovered that in clouds that were photographed there was the image of a head of a dharma-protecting Vajra deity of esoteric Buddhism. Peng Yu-Wen discovered something on the top of that photograph. To the right of the magic beam and on the top of the clouds were extremely clear shapes of three unusual characters in white, red, and blue, respectively. After investigation, it was confirmed that those were the Tibetan characters for “Ong, Ah, Hong.” They represent the three mystic things: the body, voice, and mind of a Buddha. They are the essential nature of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Other people who were there observing the photographs included Wu Hsiu-Ying, Yeh Gui-Lan, Peng Yi-Jun, Peng Yi-Bo, Chen Pei-Jun, Wang Ya-Ling, and Liu Hui-Ting. They saw each of the photographs and could not understand such extraordinary phenomena.



The occurrence of such remarkable phenomena caused many people to congregate at the mandala. Many people discussed those events. Some of them expressed their admiration over what happened. Some of them expressed intense and vehement viewpoints. Some were suspicious and asked why I was the one who photographed the magic beam on both occasions rather than somebody else. I could not help but feel bad about such suspicions. I felt how pitiful people are. I have been engaged in news reporting for a few decades. My standard is to respect the facts. This is part of my professional ethics and is also the criterion by which I live. 



I have something to say to those who would distort my image. With a clear conscience, I will simply use the following method that is most believed by people in general. I hereby openly swear to the following: “I truly saw that at the middle of the entrance door area of the mandala containing the nectar bowl a beam of red light descended from the sky. I personally used my camera to photograph that scene. If any bit of what I have sworn to is false, then may I struggle my entire life in the hardships of wandering from place to place. If what I have sworn to is true, then I hope the readers of this sworn statement and I will enjoy peace and happiness. I hope even more that the words I have written will cause more people to have correct and profound insight as well as good luck and good fortune in their lives.”



Actually, I myself find it very difficult to understand such phenomena. I also feel puzzled. I thought that perhaps extraterrestrials were measuring something or maybe it was some sort of a test involving high-technology. If not, then perhaps the beam of light was formed by a refraction of sunlight. However, if any of those possibilities actually caused the beam, then why did Buddhist seed characters also appear? What high-tech method could emit a beam of light about two feet in diameter that is brighter than even the sun? Thus, I again telephoned the Great Dharma King. I asked him whether he had ever seen such a sacred sight before. The Great Dharma King said, “I am ashamed. I have not seen holy sights. All that I see are illusory sights.” I feel that I am a lucky person. I have seen such a holy scene twice. Although the Great Dharma King is an extremely holy being, he unfortunately missed the opportunities to see both holy sights.
