All this dharma-miracle stuff Fa Zang is peddling appears to be in 
direct conflict with his master's teachings. The lama claims spiritual 
authority from his position in relation to a man called 
"H.H.DC-Buddha.III". Note in particular #27 on DC's list of 128 
erroneous/evil beliefs as found here: 
*In this world, there are many kinds of mystical and strange paranormal 
phenomena. Heretical sects use such phenomena to deceive and confuse 
living beings. In so doing, they create all kinds of negative karma. All 
such strange phenomena are not manifestations of supernatural power that 
flow from the Buddha-dharma and are just evil doings. *

> knowledge so mind-blowing that its revelation to the earthly realms
