Various techniques were used in this painting entitled “Majesty” in order to enable viewers to see clearly the fur of this gallant lion and his cubs. Brush touches of various degrees of thickness and thinness were applied. Stone-based coloring material used in Chinese paintings was also applied. Every stroke of the brush became a separate hair. The process required much labor. Such a painting takes one to two years to complete. In short, a long time and painstaking effort are needed. The mighty lion in this painting is in a lying pose with a majestic, awe-inspiring appearance that shakes the skies and land. Large-scale freehand brushwork was used to paint the rock and trees in the surrounding scene. The versatile skills of the artist are fully evidenced. The brushwork was completed in a mature, vigorous, bold, and spontaneous way. Naturally imbued in this surrounding scene are the profound literary and other talents of the artist. Painting mastery was reached in depicting this very appealing surrounding scene in which what appears chaotic is not in disorder and what appears somewhat real is abstract. Experts in calligraphy can see that each brush stroke used to paint the huge rock on which the lion lies was applied with a free and unfettered hand. Calligraphic skills were used with the effect of painting. Painting skills were used to bring out the spirit of the work. Brush techniques were applied to express charm and power. Calligraphy and painting unite in this one work of art. This artistic treasure contains energetic strokes and embodies a grand artistic conception. Its style belongs to the “Kuangxi” style of painting.
The “Kuangxi” Style Such paintings fuse rough and precise artistry. The roughest, most rigid, most vigorous brush strokes of the large-scale freehand style are masterfully combined with the fine, delicate brush strokes of the realistic style, resulting in elegance amid roughness. 獷細派——即是粗獷結合細微兩種不同技法，以最粗獷剛硬蒼勁的大寫結合微細工筆於一體，得之出神入化，曠中顯秀。
On April 3, 2008, a solemn and dignified book-launching ceremony was held at the Library of Congress of the United States; on occasion of the first release of a fact-recording book entitled H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, jointly published by the World Buddhism Publishing LLC and the World Dharma Voice, Inc. At the same time, the book was formally accepted into the collection of the Library of Congress of the United States. From then on, people came to know that the widely respected Master Wan Ko Yee, the one who has been recognized and corroborated through official written documents issued by top leaders, regent dharma kings, and great rinpoches of major Buddhist sects throughout the world; actually, is the third incarnation of Dorje Chang Buddha, the primordial Buddha. Ever since, people address the Buddha by the name Dorje Chang Buddha III. This is similar to the precedent regarding the name of Sakyamuni Buddha—before Sakyamuni Buddha attained Buddhahood, His name was Prince Siddhartha Gotama. Once Prince Siddhartha Gotama attained Buddhahood, He was thereafter addressed as “Namo Sakyamuni Buddha.”
On December 12, 2012, in the Senate Resolution No. 614 of the United States Congress, the title “His Holiness” was officially used with the name Dorje Chang Buddha III; the Buddha was addressed as “H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.” Since then, the title H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III was definitively affirmed.
“Dorje Chang Buddha III” is a statutory name; used in all official documents issued by the United States Government; such as passport, identity card, and social security documents. The previous name “Wan Ko Yee” is no longer valid, with no legal-binding effect, and no longer recognized by governments. “Dorje Chang Buddha III” is the only name in use.
