We are the Shakyamuni Buddha sect of Vajrayana Buddhism, following the teachings of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, who has come to this world for the third time to help restore the correct dharma as taught by Shakyamuni Buddha and to give us dharma methods that are suitable for our age and place. Shakyamuni Buddha only taught 30% of the Buddha-dharma that he possessed while he lived in this world. He taught Ananda additional dharma so that Ananda could, in turn, teach Guru Padmadambhava, who brought the highest dharma to Tibet. Buddhist practitioners should make every effort to hear the teachings of His Holiness, for he will not return for another 5,000 years.
Hua Zang Si located in San Francisco, California, is a temple of authentic Buddhism based upon all exoteric Buddha-dharma and the esoteric Buddha-dharma of Tibet. Hua Zang Si practices and teaches the dharma expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha. Buddhist disciples at Hua Zang Si cultivate themselves in strict accordance with the orthodox Buddha-dharma as contained in the Tripitaka (the sutras or discourses, the monastic discipline, and the commentaries or treatises) as well as the esoteric scriptures (tantras). The temple respectfully upholds the rules laid down by Shakyamuni Buddha and teaches living beings in accordance with the 84,000 dharma methods handed down by Shakyamuni Buddha. link
The Xuanfa Institute headquartered in Sanger, California, is a nonprofit, international organization founded by Zhaxi Zhuoma Rinpoche to propagate the correct Buddha-dharma as taught by Shakyamuni Buddha and His teacher, Dorje Chang Buddha. This Buddha-dharma can liberate living beings from the sufferings of this world and enable those who practice this Buddha-dharma and cultivate themselves in accord with the dharma to realize the good fortune and wisdom needed to become a Buddha. H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III came to this world to correct the errors and omissions that have resulted from incorrect translations and transmissions made by patriarch translators that have happened since the time of Shakyamuni Buddha and to transmit dharma that is appropriate for our age and time. Zhaxi Zhuoma Rinpoche is a close disciple of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III and personally transmits these great dharmas that are suitable for our times.
“Xuanfa” means to propagate the dharma. The Xuanfa Institute has developed an international network of affiliated dharma centers, institutes, temples, and retreat centers where people can learn and practice the correct dharma. Rinpoche serves as spiritual advisor to these facilities. link
