What are Holy Master's missions in the saha world?

The "saha world" refers to our planet earth, which has forged countless bonds with the higher dimensions in the universe. Ziguang Shang Shi has very deep affinity with this Saha world and has returned to it with different appearance and identities in past lives. This time Holy Master comes back under the Buddha's will for two reasons: one, to help those with Affinity to be freed from afflictions and regain happiness; two, to find his former disciples from previous lives and to guide them towards the Achievement in Buddhism.

The earth is in the transition of "Dharma Vanishing Era" that was mentioned in many Buddhist sutras. Sakyamuni Buddha has a prophecy describing the epoch that is plagued with disasters, catastrophes, epidemics, and diseases, which cause great suffering to many. This is also the times in severe moral decline, due to a lack of understanding of karmic cause and effect. Many people go astray from the true path and bring about bad karma and bad luck as they have not found the proper cultivation method.

This is also an age of hope. Compassionate Ziguang Shang Shi brings the Dharma to the world because many people are calling for help. They are waiting in confusion, loss, and pain. They need the guidance of true light. The Dharma from Guang Huan Mi Zong is the way that they can reach liberation through cultivation.

Why did Holy Master go to the West to spread the Dharma?

After Holy Master had been teaching Dharma in the East for over 20 years, there emerged a good time to spread Buddhism in the West. In order to benefit more people with Affinity through the Dharma practice, under the instruction of Mahavairocana Buddha, Ziguang Shang Shi travelled westward to the USA and found a sacred land described as "a virtuous and graceful place" in the Buddha's prophecy. He led his disciples with tremendous hard work in more than ten years to develop this paradise on the earth.

From Holy Master's perspective, the earth is supposed to be a world in union, but not divided by country borders; humans are supposed to be a group in harmony, but not divided by race, color, religion, belief, national origin, or political view. No matter where Holy Master is, he helps all those who sincerely seek the Dharma.

To accommodate the "upgrade" need for everyone in body, mind, and soul, Holy Master uses current methodology to simplify the sophisticated teachings and re-unveil the ancient secret essence of Buddhism to the modern world. He designed the special programs for those who have acquired the cultivation foundation in previous lives and set up the altar to teach the advanced Dharmas, such as Inner Fire Practice, White Light Body, Rainbow Body, and Citta-Heart Practice. Esoteric gurus in the past transmitted these Dharmas one-to-one only to their selected disciples.

Holy Master was invited to hold several Guang Huan Mi Zong Health Dharma Conventions for government officials and military leaders, who highly praised him for "the immeasurable merits of saving people."

When millennium began, Holy Master launched his tours around the world to hold Dharma conventions, teaching people the practice and providing free diagnosis. He helped a lot of people from different countries, races, and religions to improve their holistic wellbeing and to guide them to find the meaning of life. Those benefited ones have expressed a lot of gratitude.

Ziguang Shang Shi's Dharma theories contain important rules of the universe and serve as the foundation to the actual practice of Esoteric Dharma. The secret of human body and mystery of cosmos are both hidden within Holy Master's timeless esoteric practice. The practitioners are convinced by the effects and results of Guang Huan Mi Zong Dharma and learn it by experience before entering the advanced level of practice, so that they can understand more about life truths.

Developed the Pure Land on the earth, building temples

To spread the Dharma and deliver people, Ziguang Shang Shi built temples and set up chapels in many places of the East and the West. They are like large ferries and small boats carrying people into the Dharma practice, to uplift their body, mind, and soul. Holy Master also established large Dharma centers in New York and California, including "Holy Mountain Buddha Land" that has become a landmark for pilgrims to beseech the Dharma.
Year after year, Ziguang Shang Shi has conducted hundreds of temple construction projects. Whenever it is windy, rainy, or snowing, he is everywhere to monitor the project progress and safeguard all volunteers at the sites.
