Dorje Chang Buddha is, in Buddhism, the first and most ancient sambhogakaya Buddha in the universe. All of the other Buddhas, such as Amitabha Buddha, attained Buddhahood through learning and practicing Buddha-dharma transmitted by Dorje Chang Buddha(多杰羌佛). H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (H.H. 第三世多杰羌佛) is the third true incarnation of Dorje Chang Buddha(多杰羌佛). This identity is not self-conferred but confirmed, in strict adherence to the regulations of the recognition system of Tibetan Buddhism, by leaders of Buddhist sects worldwide.
In this world, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (H.H. 第三世多杰羌佛) has not only been recognized as achieving the highest status, but has received more recognition certifications and demonstrated more accomplishments than anyone else in the past few thousand year：the book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (H.H. 第三世多杰羌佛) alone displays accomplishments in thirty large categories. This museum, similarly, exhibits only a portion of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III's artistic attainments, which in turn constitutes only a portion of His countless accomplishments. The artworks of His Holiness the Buddha are very valuable in the world. Finally, the magnanimity and immaculate moral character of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III(H.H. 第三世多杰羌佛), His exceeding compassion in benefiting others, and His outstanding contributions to humanity have all been recognized by innumerable world-class awards.
