H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (Master Wan Ko Yee)
Conferred the Certificate of
“Distinguished International Master”

  In 1986, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (Master Wan Ko Yee) scored the highest on a rigorous exam given by the American Chinese Culture and Art Academy and was accepted as a guest professor in the United States. Based only upon literature and art, which are just two of the many fields it considers, the World Poets and Culture Congress, represented by experts and scholars from forty-three countries and regions, conferred upon His Holiness the title of "Master of Oriental Art" in 1991. This Congress confers this title only once every ten years. In 1994, after three years of appraising and examining H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III’s achievements in art, academic writings, and ethics, the World Poets and Culture Congress, represented by 5,612 experts and scholars from 48 countries and regions, decided at its fourth congress in Hungary to confer upon His Holiness the title of “Distinguished International Master.” No other person on earth has been selected to receive such an honor, which is the highest title in the entire world. On September 28, that same congress dispatched a special envoy to Sichuan, China to conduct a grand presentation ceremony for His Holiness to formally receive this title. Read More>>

Such Is the Innate Character of
His Holiness the Buddha

President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and several senior congressional members congratulated H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III for His birthday in honor of His status as the supreme leader of all Buddhism and selfless contributions.

LOS ANGELES, CA, August 04, 2018 /   On June 24, 2018, the flag of the United States was raised over Holy Heavenly Lake in California. That flag was not bought from the street. Rather, it was the very flag that on May 15th was fluttering in the sky above the United States Congress in Washington, D.C.. The same flag was later delivered to the Office of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. The raising of that national flag at the Capitol was inspired by the Buddha-character of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.

May 15th is the birthday of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. That national flag was raised at Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. specifically for the birthday of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. The flag-raising document stated, “This flag was flown in honor of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, supreme leader of all Buddhism, on the occasion of his birthday.” Read More>>

I have spent more than 60 years of my professional life in the field of painting. During the many decades of practice and experiences, I have come to know many famous painters. That is especially the case since I became the Head Consultant for authenticating paintings and calligraphy at the National Museum of China in Beijing. As an appraiser and authentication officer of paintings and calligraphy, the bulk of my work is to verify the authenticity of Eastern and Western paintings. I have reviewed tens of thousands of famous paintings, especially the rare and precious works of the maestro Vincent van Gogh of the Netherlands, and those of the champion of Eastern paintings, Qi Baishi of China.

Both Van Gogh and Qi Baishi were great world-renowned masters in art. One represented the apex of Western art and the other was a master of an extreme class in the field of Eastern paintings. Both artists had drawn from the essence of the classical traditions of their respective cultures. Read more>>
