The Appearing of White Tara


In the past, when I was at my teacher, Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye’s place, he told me a true story.

Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye said that one day White Tara appeared to him and told him:

“You must quickly go to Taiwan, to find someone with the family name of Luo. In this present age, this Mr. Luo will be a rare and precious acharya, and in the future he will attain accomplishment. This acharya’s bliss-body is none other than Amitabha Buddha.”

At the beginning, Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye did not take this seriously.

However, White Tara appeared to him repeatedly.

Hence my teacher brought his attendant Thubten Qi-gong with him to Taiwan to disseminate Buddha dharma, while looking for someone with the last name of “Luo”at the same time.

He searched day after day.

But he could not find someone with the last name of “Luo.”

Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye was very upset that he could not find someone with the last name of  “Luo.”

Not long after, I took refuge under Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye of my own accord. My teacher gave me the dharma name, “Thubten Qi-mo.”

One day, White Tara showed up again.

My teacher told White Tara:

“While in Taiwan, I could not find someone with the family name of ‘Luo.’”

White Tara replied:

“He is already by your side, and is none other than Sheng-Yen Lu. Go on and teach him the profound esoteric keys of the three inner secret dharma practices.”

My teacher said:

“His family name is Lu, not Luo?”

White Tara replied:

“In Taiwanese, the pronunciation of the family name Lu is Luo.”

“Lu”is pronounced as “Luo” in Taiwanese.

Suddenly, light dawned upon Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye.

As a result, I became his main disciple at his place, and received the pivotal keys of theinner secret practices all through his teachings, incomparable empowerments and continuous blessings.

At Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye’s place, I received:

Kurukulle Buddha Mother empowerment

The Highest Yoga Tantra empowerment

Yamantaka empowerment

The great Kalachakra empowerment

Even after the parinirvana of Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye, he still appeared to teach me uncommon dharma teachings.

I carry him above my crown in gratitude.

One day, White Tara appeared and spoke to me:

“Grand Master Lu, you have to write a book. You have the obligation to write such a book.”

“What book?”

From the emptiness above, White Tara tossed a book down to me.

The moment I flipped open the book, I was greatly appalled!

White Tara said:

“Write it! This is a warning to your holy disciples, who are in dangerous situations or have gone astray. This is a way to call them back onto the right path!”

I said:

“This! This is too awkward!”

White Tara said:

“Doing this awkward task is also an act of kindness! This book is one that people need to read.”
