WBAH Announcement No. 20170107: Pictures of the passing of Holy Monk Yinhai

CLICK HERE for the source posting of this announcement.

We now publish the Dharma image of the Elder Monk Yinhai, as well as some other pictures. The body of Holy Monk Yinhai underwent a divine transformation ten days after His passing, setting up the first instance of divine transformation after passing in the entire Buddhist history. Buddhist cultivators can worship these pictures and thus receive great blessings. There are seven pictures:

  1. A picture of Elder Monk Yinhai taken a few years ago;
  2. The group picture of the assembly and Elder Monk Yinhai eleven hours after His passing on the same day;
  3. The group picture of the Dharma masters, rinpoches, and the Elder Monk’s Vajra Dharma body that is as hard as iron and stone, thirty-one days after the passing of Elder Monk Yinhai;
  4. A comparison picture between what was taken eleven hours after Elder Monk Yinhai’s passing, in which He looked very old, skinny, and deeply wrinkled, and what was taken twenty-four days after his passing, in which He looked full and fleshed. His Dharma body underwent a divine transformation and became a completely different look. It is the first real Vajra flesh sarira that happened in Buddhist history;
  5. A couplet for Elder Monk Yinhai;
  6. A second couplet for Elder Monk Yinhai; and
  7. The praise verse Wangzha Shangzun wrote for Elder Monk Yinhai.

We would also like to inform you all at this time that the United International World Buddhism Association Headquarters has now become the World Buddhism Association Headquarters. All activities and announcements are continuous.

Translation of the right side: For six years while He was alive, His Dharma body powerfully manifested a divine and different form; The high monk thus smashed the old tomes in the calendars of the religion;

7. The praise verse Wangzha Shangzun wrote for Elder Monk Yinhai

Translation
The verse of praise
Monk Yinhai’s merit shines throughout heaven and earth
The nine precept scars emitted light that broke the darkness in the sanctuary room
With great compassion and Bodhi the unknown one now leaves His name known
On His vows He returned to the upper level lotus in the World of Ultimate Bliss
The holy venerable one’s flesh underwent a great divine transformation
Thus establishing a new holy chapter of passing in Buddhist history
Earlier we practiced together in a cave in the deep mountains
Later we both followed the true teachings and got near the Buddha
-With palms together, Buddhist disciple and a humbled bikku, Wangzha Gongbo. February 15, 2017
