Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi

Postby Blue Garuda » Mon Apr 02, 2012 8:34 pm

Could I have some insights into this teacher please.

An event invitation has been posted on another forum, but this forum has many more people who may know about him, and I suspect it won't be long before we have the invitation posted here. The event mentions a fee but the website has no fee information I could find.

The invitation reads thus:

''Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi is holding a class for those interested in experiencing the entry level of his Guang Huan Mi Zong Great Perfection Esoteric Dharma.

This three day class is an introduction to Esoteric practice for healing and strengthening the mind and body and an entry point for those interested in pursuing the Dharma and studying under a teacher.

A very rare opportunity to meet a true master and experience Esoteric teaching.

For for more information visit our website at http://mahameditation.org/''

What is meant by "esoteric" practice here? Who is this person's teacher, and where and how did he learn this practice?

Well I don't mind leaving it open for the time being if someone can provide answers into who this teacher is, lineage, etc.

From your first link:


http://res6zeam.wordpress.com/buddhist- ... -shangshi/

''At the age of 17, he gained the Living Buddha’s realization of the wisdom of emptiness, and took the great vow to spend his whole life propagating Buddhadharm and crossing over sentient beings. For over thirty years, for the sake of methods of transformation he has gone West seeking the Dharma, has gone through numerous perils, and has widely visited high monks, old Taoists, famous Masters, anchorites, and has done wall-facing practice, and passed through every kind of obstruction to the point of realization, and obeyed Vairochana Buddha in founding the Radiant Ring Secret Lineage.''

''Ziguang Shangshi is an exemplary example for people, showing by word and deed that compassion is what he cherishes, and he opposes that the students participating in training should be given the revelation of Buddhadharma simply with a dutiful attitude, but empowers them to obtain the healing of the Radiant Ring Secret Lineage esoteric method, and so the healing efficacy is exceptionally fast and outstanding. Because he is like this, every time Ziguang Shangshi comes to a place, he always leaves behind a beneficial influence and many miraculous stories. Ziguang Shangshi has immeasurable merit from crossing over sentient beings, and rescuing sentient beings floundering in the sea of suffering, and bringing each of them on to the great ship of the health of the Radiant Ring Secret Lineage, [pre]liberating them from suffering in this way,[/pre] and putting forth a huge contribution to the work for the health of mankind. ''


The emboldened parts are direct quotes, claims of a Living Buddha etc etc. I'm guessing that by starting a new lineage he doesn't need to establish any prior lineage as any authentication. Ho hum.....

I hope the guy originally posting info on this teacher's work manages to find a true path. _/\_

Missed this from the same quote, which is surely able to be proven true:

''When the time came to the Dharma-Ending Age, Ziguang Shangshi, responding to the Dharma Ream in the world, for the sake of crossing over sentient beings of the six gatis, manifested a form in the world. At the age of five years, he was given abhisheka by Shi Qiming, the Abbot of Dafo Si (Great Buddha Temple), and afterwards attained the true transmission of Lin Chan Ka Er Tu, the transformation body of Guru Rinpoche.
