A brief introduction to the Vajra Master Jinke Xuanlei
In December 1958, in Yizhou, Guangxi Autonomous Region of China, the Vajra Master Jinke Xuanlei was born. During his early childhood, he had the great fortune to be ferried over by the hermit, his Greatness Master Jinyin, a great Dharmaraja of Esoteric Buddhism. In the Lianyin Mountains, he was given the Dharma name “Jinke Xuanlei” in his initiation into Esoteric Buddhism, his master bestowing him with Vajrayana Abhisheka. For more than ten years, with immense concentration and rigid austerity the Vajra Master Jinke Xuanlei practicedEsoteric Buddhism and achieved Wholly Complete Enlightenment. During this time with guidance from his master he studied and practiced: the Mahavairocana Sutra, the VajrasekharaSutra, the Sussiddhikara Sutra, the Fundamentals of Tripitaka, the Sutra ofPerfect Enlightenment, the Esoteric Abhisheka by Master, the Yogayogi Sutra, the Ghanavyuha Sutra, theAvatamsaka Sutra, the Surangama Sutra,the Dharma to Reach the Holy World by Dharani, the Humane King Sutra, the Bodhicitta Sutra, the Commentary on the Mahayana Treatise, the Sun and Moon,the Jinke Mandala Vajradhatu and Garbhadhatu Esoteric Tripitaka, the Esoteric Inner Dharma Sequential Meditation, the Ridhisaksatkriya Shila and Vinaya and many other classics of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism. Upon reaching enlightenment he was fully awakened to the esoteric essences of the Tathagata, mastered the five ancient sciences and attained the complete truth of all Dharma. His Spirit ascended into the divine realm of the Buddhas and there he was predicted by the Mahavairocana to reach Buddhahood and attain divine wisdom from enlightenment and inherit the lineage of theDharmakaya essences from Tathagata within Jinke Saddharma. The Samhogakaya of Bodhisattva Manjusrimanifested in front of him while in a deep state of meditation bestowing on himAbhisheka and taught him the most complete doctrines of Anuttarayoga. Many might know that The Vajra master JinkeXuanlei was born and raised in Guangxi, was introduced to and practicedEsoteric Buddhism, but few know the rigorous hardships he had to overcome.
Into the depths of the freezing, windswept forest he went. There within the desolate wilderness, the sky was his tent and the earth his bed, in the domain of snakes and ferocious beasts. Battling with the extremes of the natural world all year round and deprived of all necessities, fruits, and dew was all there was. In the mists of mountain peaks he meditated and in the flow of mountain streams he exercised day in and day out. He suffered hardships none had suffered before and endured pains none have suffered since! There is a saying in Chinese: He who is enjoying the taste of fruits often forget the hardships of those who cultivate.” Even with his endurance stretched beyond the bounds he eventually conquered all in his path to become aMa ha sidd ha of perfect enlightenment. The brutal forces of Nature have made his will as strong as steel and the infinite information of the cosmos has given him the strength to overcome all worldly thoughts and enter Prajna Sainthood. After all his achievements he did not forget about the people. With an all-merciful heart, he left the mountains to be amongst them, for the benefit of all.
Sino esoteric Buddhism is also known as Vajrayana Buddhism. It originally came to prominence during the Kaiyuan period of the Tang Dynasty when IndianMahasiddhas of the Madhyamaka School and Yogacara School of Mahayana Buddhism brought Vajrayana Buddhism to the royal court of China. Subhakarasimha came via the inland Silk roadVajrabohdi and his disciple Amoghavajra traveled by the maritime SilkRoad. As such, the practitioners now revere Vajrabohdi as the founder of Sino Esoteric Buddhism and his discipleAmoghavajra as his successor. TheseMahasiddhas translated enormous volumes of Buddhist Sutras from Sanskrit to Chinese that continued to benefit the generations thereafter. Huilang was appointed successor byAmoghavajra, the provenance of this lineage to be found in many historical documents.
As the end of the Middle Day of Law approached towards the end of the latter periods of theTang Dynasty, Skhanda-maras entered the Human Realm to be reborn as humans. Filled with the obsession of Imperialism the Emperor Wuzong began the Great Anti-Buddhist Persecution which caused the decline of Buddhism in China. Many assumed that Sino esoteric Buddhism started to diminish during this period even though later during the Song Dynasty there were many virtuousDharmacharyas such as Shichuan, Shihu and Faxian. They continued to translate sutras andpropagate Buddha Dharma but there was no enlightened master to carry on thelineage of esoteric Abhisheka thus leading to the belief that Esoteric Buddhism had disappeared after the Yuan Dynasty. It is thought by popular belief that between Exoteric and Esoteric Buddhism that Esoteric Buddhism was the first to perish, and between the Dharmata sect and the Wei-shi school, Wei-shi was the first to fade away. Unknown to the general public, neitherEsoteric Buddhism nor the Wei-shi school disappeared but took refuge in the mountains to continue passing down their lineages in secret. The lineage of the Dharmakaya embodiment has been passed down since the latter period of the Tang Dynasty. This has been passed down to many great masters such as Master Qizhenxinghai, Master Rilunjiemo, Master Bayinduda,Master Jinyin and Master Jinke Xuanlei. Within the deep mountain forests of Dian, Gui, and Qian regions ofChina, these Mahasiddhas live in seclusion to practice esoteric Buddhism. Years of hardships and deep meditations give them access to pure and untainted wisdoms of Vajrayana Samadhi. On attaining such wisdoms, they would be covered with radiances from the truth of Vajrayana Buddhism and theirDharmakayas would shine on the entire Buddhists’ worlds in the ten directions. Their divine spirits would reached the realm of the Buddhas to embody the Tathagata’s Photon like Dharmakaya; neither whence nor whither, both real and unreal, no death nor birth, and be always enlightened in all of eternity. Because of the Depended Originations and the wills of sentient beings had not reached its full potential during the Mappo era, these great masters remained in the deep mountains to ferry over willing sentient beings in the Dharma worlds and those in our world who possess enough deeds of blessed virtues, Buddha-nature,wisdom, and temperament.
The ultimate goals of practicing Sino Esoteric Buddhism are to attain Buddhahoodand also to teach the doctrines of the Buddha to all sentient beings. Sino Esoteric Buddhism therefore also paysgreat attentions to the exoteric methods of practicing the dharma. When facing the practitioners of the Dharmatasect and the Wei-shi School, Sino Esoteric Buddhism chooses different methodsto teach the true meanings of “Sunyata” (Void) and “Bhava” (State of being) baseon the temperament of each individual. These methods are also combined with esoteric practices to attaindifferent levels of enlightenment. Theessences of Sino Esoteric Buddhism lie in the lineage of Dharmakaya embodimentthrough esoteric practice of Mahasamaya dharma. Because of its method of transmission, non-esoteric practitioners wouldnot have access to know of its existence. The Chinese imperial families had always believed in Sino EsotericBuddhism, but they were bound by the vows of samaya to keep a tight seal on theRituals of Dharani from the esoteric essences; unsanctioned transmission toothers were strictly prohibited. It wasvery hard for the general populace to know the true natures of Sino EsotericBuddhism, this resulting in the assumption that it had disappeared from the Hanregion. The real truth was that it hadonly disappeared from the main streams of Buddhism, but disappearing does notmean it had perished. The lineage ofembodying Tathagata’s Dharmakaya will never perish, and it is the same for allthe esoteric essences of Tathagata. Whenthe dependent origination for its existence has perished it will be concealed;and when the dependent origination for its existence has been met it willreappear again. This is the truth of alldharma and forever will be so. TheShingon sect, the Tendai sect, the Tibetan sect and the miscellaneous sect ofesoteric Buddhism all originated from the doctrines of Mahavairocana. The true Dharani from the esoteric essencesof Tathagata’s Dharmakaya had always remained in the Han region of China, notin Japan. It had continued passing downits lineage of Dharmakaya embodiment in the deep mountains.
Theessences of Sino Esoteric Buddhism were never lost; its lineage does not passdown by simple teachings of doctrines, by the general spreading of sutras, byperforming rituals, by the symbolic inheritance of robes, alms bowls and relicsand nor does it by academic research of Buddhism theories and cultures. Its essences lie in following the teachingsof enlightened masters when Saddharma appears in response to setting in motionthe wheel of the dharma. When such aMaster is present, Saddharma will propagate in the world; when such a Master isnot present, Saddharma remains hidden. The esoteric teachings of the Buddha’s Saddharma lies in theconfirmation of the universal truth through practicing. An Awakened One is virtuous with WhollyComplete Enlightenment; his Dharmakaya will remain in this world whileconnecting directly with the divine realm of Tathagata. Hence the meaning in the lineage ofDharmakaya embodiment will never cease. Those who do not understand the power of this wisdom could only use therighteous to do the deed of the evil. The esoteric essences of Tathagata within Jinke Saddharma are theAnuttarayoga taught through speech and mind by a Vajra master who had embodiedthe Dharmakaya of Tathagata. It is theultimate Vajrayana Buddhism of secret within a secret that is both exoteric andesoteric. It had accumulated thefundamental practicing principles of all Buddhas before and include all therituals of Dharani from the esoteric essences in Mandalas. These masters are fully awakened ones withboundless wisdoms and the insights to all truth. They are the truth of the universe, thewisdom in all dharmas, and the guide to reach enlightenment.
In 1983, the Vajra Master Jinke Xuanlei had emerged from his practice in the mountains to visit numerous remote and poverty-stricken regions in Guangxi, China, such as Hechi, Yishan, Nandan, Huanjiang, Luocheng, Tian’e, Bama, Shanglin, Du’an, Baise, Longzhou, Fengshan…… where he helped and healed thousands of afflicted for free, propagated the Buddha-Dharma; gave salvationto those in torment.

Since then tens of thousands of people havebeen treated by the Master, most of them improved greatly; many were with fataland obstinate diseases.
He is pouring out his heart and soul to grant health and happiness to all sentientbeings! In the past three decades hisfootsteps have been all over the world. From the remote villages of the south to the bustling metropolises ofthe north, whether walking or driving, to poor village hut or a glamorouspalace, as long as there are people who have the will to be enlightened he willsave them all from torment with sincerity; for the rich or the poor, thepowerful or the powerless. Hiscompassion and arduousness have made an indelible impression deep in the heartsof all who had ever met him. Endlesstimes he has healed those with fatal diseases and saved them right from thejaws of death with a miraculous cure; endless other times he has givensalvation to those under torment and misfortunes by bearing all their deeds,thus reinforced people’s devotion to the Buddha-dharma. His illustrious Divine powers shocked thosewho have witnessed and experienced them personally; the encounter has left animprint on their souls for all of eternity.
