在我們這個世界上，如果按修行的發心和成就的大小、快慢來分的話，佛教可以分成小乘、大乘和密乘，而如果按照佛教的派別來分，藏密分為寧瑪、噶舉、薩迦、格魯、覺囊等十二大派，另有很多支派。佛教還有唐密、東密、顯宗、禪宗、淨土、律宗等很多派別，但是，無論是小乘、大乘或密乘，還是這些派別，他們全部都是接受的傳承， 是法界中所有佛教的真正的有形體的第一位始祖。沒有 ，就沒有佛教、沒有 、沒有佛學、沒有任何 和菩薩、沒有法王、沒有仁波且、沒有法師、沒有佛教徒，而只有宇宙的不生不滅之真諦概念，這概念即是普賢王如來阿達爾瑪佛無相法身佛。法身無相，言語道斷，心性寂滅，無以說法主，稱為佛性，並非佛教，故而普賢王如來以法身圓滿多杰羌佛總持具相報身佛體，始創佛教於法界中，傳教於三界中。多杰羌佛曾兩次降此世界，第一次降世即多杰羌佛第二世維摩詰聖尊，第二次降世為 雲高益西諾布。在整個佛教，無論是密宗還是顯宗，所有佛教教派的原始主都是多杰羌佛，無論任何 都是由多杰羌佛始傳，因為多杰羌佛是佛教唯一始祖。多杰羌佛曾化身燃燈 、化身金剛薩埵等，由燃燈 傳授 給釋迦牟尼佛，再由釋迦 開娑婆法教，但佛法之來源皆由多杰羌佛為始祖，參見文字號碼對照傳承皈依境便可粗略了解。因此法界之原始佛三尊稱為法身佛普賢王如來（阿達爾瑪佛）、報身佛多杰羌佛（金剛總持）、化身金剛薩埵。
BRIEF BUDDHIST LINEAGE REFUGE TREE
In our world, Buddhism can be divided into Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana based upon the differing aspirations behind cultivation as well as the magnitude and speed of accomplishment in the dharma. Further divisions can be made based upon sects or schools. Tibetan esoteric Buddhism can be divided into twelve sects, such as Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya, Geluk, and Jonang sects. There are also many branch sects. Within Buddhism there is also esoteric Buddhism taught by Sakyamuni Buddha contained in the Tripitaka, the Shingon sect, and exoteric Buddhism, which includes Zen Buddhism, the Pure Land school, and the Vinaya school, and many other schools.
However, whether it is Hinayana, Mahayana, Vajrayana, or any of the aforementioned sects or schools, they have all received their lineage from Dorje Chang Buddha. With respect to all of Buddhism in the dharma realm, Dorje Chang Buddha is the true primordial ancestor with form. Without Dorje Chang Buddha, there would be no Buddhism, no Buddha-dharma, no Buddhist studies, no Buddhas, no Bodhisattvas, no dharma kings, no rinpoches, no dharma teachers, and no Buddhists. There would only be the concept of the absolute truth of the universe that is not born and does not perish. This is the formless dharmakaya Buddha known as Samantabhadra Tathagata or Adharma Buddha. The dharmakaya has no form. It has no sound and does not speak. This dhamakaya is called Buddha-nature, which is not Buddhism. It abides in perfect stillness. With the dharmakaya, there is no subject who can expound the dharma.
The dharmakaya of Samantabhadra Tathagata generated the sambhogakaya Dorje Chang Buddha with form. Dorje Chang Buddha originated Buddhism in the dharmadhatu and began to spread the teachings of Buddhism in the three spheres of existence. Dorje Chang Buddha has come to this world twice. The first time was in the form of the holy and venerable Vimalakirti, who was Dorje Chang Buddha II. The second time was in the form of H.H. Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu, who is. The original leader of all of the sects within all of Buddhism, whether esoteric or exoteric, is Dorje Chang Buddha. No matter what Buddha dharma it may be, it was originally transmitted by Dorje Chang Buddha because Dorje Chang Buddha is the only primordial ancestor of Buddhism. Dorje Chang Buddha transformed into the ancient Buddha Dipankara, Vajrasattva, and others. The ancient Buddha Dipankara taught dharma to Sakyamuni Buddha. Sakyamuni Buddha was the first to teach the dharma in the earthly realm. However, the source of all Buddha-dharma is the original ancestor of Buddhism, Dorje Chang Buddha. If you cross-reference the names and numbers on the list with the numbers on the lineage refuge tree, you will have a rough understanding of this. Thus, the three primordial Buddhas in the dharmadhatu are called dharmakaya-Buddha Samantabhadra Tathagata ( Adi Buddha aka Adharma Buddha), sambhogakaya-Buddha Dorje Chang Buddha (Buddha Vajradhara), and the nirmanakaya Vajrasattva.
For more than two thousand years, different Buddhist sects have mixed together and have originated from one another. Patriarchs have taught dharma to one another and have learned from one another during these more than two thousand years. This has caused the network of lineages within all of Buddhism to become extremely large and complex. Such a lineage refuge tree surely cannot be clearly depicted in just a few pages. Because of space limitations, it was not possible to include in this lineage refuge tree all of the Buddhist sects, all of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and all of the great patriarchs. Thus, this lineage refuge tree only includes a few percent of them in a representative capacity. Nonetheless, everything stated above regarding lineages is accurate and unbiased.
