14. Training of the Human Chakkavatti
The Pursuit of
By Pittaya Wong

In our realm, there are two major types of self-cultivation as follows:
(1) The Dhamma Approach by ‘the Dhamma Lord’
(In case of aiming towards the Buddhahood, one is addressed as ‘the Bodhi-Dhamma Individual’ who occasionally becomes the Imperial Monarch)
(2) The Chakra Approach by ‘the Chakra Lord’
(In case of aiming towards the Buddhahood, one is addressed as ‘the Bodhi-Chakra Individual’ who normally becomes the Imperial Monarch more often.)
To begin, both ‘the Bodhi-Dhamma Individual’ and ‘the Bodhi-Chakra Individual’ can be referred to as ‘the Bodhisattva’ or the Buddha-to-be. Generally, the Bodhi-Dhamma Individual is superior to the Bodhi-Chakra Individual in term of Dhamma or virtues. However, if the Bodhi-Chakra Individual can cultivate virtue perfections until attaining Buddhahood, and he will become ‘the Holy Lord Chakkavatti-Buddha’ who is superior to common Buddhas. The Holy Lord Chakkavatti-Buddha can be recognised as ‘the Imperial Buddha’ or ‘the King of Buddha’ in a common Buddha assembly.
Questioning why it is so, we have to firstly refer to the two types of ‘the Chakra Lord’ namely (1) the Chakra Lord who excels in tasks, and (2) the Chakra Lord who excels in meditative superknowledge or vijja.
The Chakra Lord who excels in tasks has to go through eons of trainings as ‘the Lord/Workman of Seven Roles’ namely (i) Lord of Steed (transportation), (ii) Lord of Elephant (hospitality & helpfulness), (iii) Noble Gentleman/Lady (providing joy, happiness, and beautifulness), (iv) Lord of Treasury (allocating, managing, and securing wealth), (v) Lord of Force (supervising subordinates and human resources), (vi) Lord of Crystal/Gem (providing & controlling the sacred items like crystals and gemstones), and (vii) the Lord Chakkavatii (mastering the use of power & management).
Therefore, with such trainings in different roles, the Chakra Lord masters various tasks which enable him or her to gain ‘expertise’ by accumulating more Kaya-Siddhi within oneself whereas the Dhamma Lord who pursues perfections without giving priority to the tasks is usually less competent, but commonly more virtuous. Thus, the Chakra Lord who attains Buddhahood, with equally cultivated Dhamma or virtues when comparing to the Dhamma Lord, is superior with more skills.
At the same time, the Chakra Lord who excels in the meditative superknowledge is the one who ‘exercises the Celestial Seven Precious or Seven Rattana’ within his meditative insight until gaining expertise similar to a soldier (comparing to the Chakra Lord) who practices to use weapons in contrast to the police (comparing to the Dhamma Lord) who practices to use hand guns. Although the Dhamma Lord can also use the Celestial Seven Precious or Seven Rattana, but when we compare between the Chakra Lord and the Dhamma Lord, the Chakra Lord is usually more skillful and convenient in using the Celestial Seven Precious when comparing to the Dhamma Lord of the same level, except some Dhamma Lord who has been training or using the Celestial Seven Precious for a considerable period of time or such Dhamma Lord has trained himself to be the Chakra Lord at the same time similar to an individual who is both a military and a police.
However, the tasks training and meditative superknowledge training of the Chakra Lord who gives priority to both tasks and meditative superknowledge involve the Seven Role/Celestial Precious more than common Bodhisattvas, these make it more difficult for the Chakra Lord to attain Buddhahood when comparing to the Dhamma Lord. It is because the Chakra Lord does not pursue the virtue perfections only and/or directly. As a result, this path of Chakra cultivation allows the Chakra Lord to reborn as the Lord Imperial Monarch (Lord Chakkavatti King) who possesses ‘the Physical Seven Precious’ more often than the Dhamma Lord throughout the equal period of pursuing virtue perfections.
It does not mean that the Dhamma Lord does not go through the Seven Role trainings like the Chakra Lord at all. The Dhamma Lord may have these trainings without taking them as a serious concern. Therefore, the Dhamma Lord, as a Bodhisattva, can become the Lord Imperial Monarch who possesses the ‘Physical Seven Precious’ (other than the Celestial Seven Precious) from time to time, but not as often as the Chakkavatti Lord.
In juxtaposition, the Dhamma Lord has been through the trainings of ‘Dhamma Perfection’ which is, indeed, the 10 virtues perfection in three levels, e.g. the common dedication, the self-dedication, and the life-dedication, respectively. These fulfill the Bodhisattva or Buddha-to-be with ‘Dhamma Perfection’ as the requirement for Buddhahood, which seems to be direct, faster, and easier for the Dhamma-Lord while the Chakra Lord invests so much time to the tasks training, either with or without the Physical Seven Precious, which fulfill him or her with ‘Dhatu Perfection’ or skillfulness as well as the exercising of the Celestial Seven Precious in meditation along the pursuit of three levels of 10 virtue perfections. As a result, the Chakra Lord takes more time and effort to achieve Buddhahood, and this is the case of Lord Metriya Bodhisattva who will become the fifth Buddha of this epoch, as the only Chakkavatti-Buddha among the five.
In conclusion, we can say that the ‘Dhamma’ is regarded as the most important because it gives rise to purity of mind, speech, and action, leading to the path and fruition of the Nirvana. Normally, the Chakra Lord is inferior to the Dhamma Lord in term of Dhamma. But the Chakra Lord usually has more skills and competency in exercising both tasks and meditation power when comparing to the Dhamma Lord of the same level. However, if the Chakra Lord can achieve the cultivation of Dhamma or virtue perfections, the Chakra Lord will become superior to the Dhamma Lord of the comparable Dhamma level. Consequently to the Buddhahood, this explains why the Lord Chakkavatti-Buddha (from Chakra Lord Bodhisattva) is superior to the common Lord Buddha (from Dhamma Lord Bodhisattva) of the comparable Dhamma level.
Notwithstanding, there are some Chakra Lord who also cultivates Dhamma or virtues perfection as the Dhamma Lord, at the same time, or the Dhamma Lord who also cultivates Chakrahood at the same time. These Dhamma Lords and Chakra Lords are so special and superior to the Dhamma Lords and Chakra Lords of the same level who pursue only a single path instead of paralleling.
Note: The term ‘Chakkavatti’ or ‘Lord Chakkavatti-Buddha’ can be used two different aspects as follows: (A) The Chakkavatti who is a living being (The Lord of Imperial Dhamma) and able to reborn as a human or celestial being. (B) The Chakkavatti who is a ‘Kaya-Siddhi’ or Transcendroid (Transcendental Droid) who has ‘no life’ but ‘living’ with the mind of his own. The Transcendroid is created to be in the celestial form without having to reborn as a human or celestial being and go through the cycle of birth with an exception to some special case. The reason why both (A) and (B) are referred to as ‘Chakkavatti’ is because they involve the Seven Precious namely the Precious Chakra (Bladed Disc) and other, either the material ones or the celestial ones.

the Human Chakkavatti
(The One Whose Innermost Body is the Imperial Dhamma Body)
Authored by Meditation Master as of August 2017
Most human Chakkavatti(s) train themselves to become the Imperial Dhamma Lord or transcendental Chakkavatti. If a human Chakkavatti attains Buddhahood, he will become an Imperial Buddha which rarely occurs. This is the case of Lord Metriya Buddha who will become the fifth Buddha of the present epoch. However, from now on, the attainment of Imperial Buddhahood will become easier. If a human Chakkavatti becomes a Lord Chakkavatti or Imperial Monarch, this is common for them. Most human Chakkavatti(s) are skillful in performing tasks; otherwise, they are good at exercising the superknowledge or vijja in meditation. Previously, the human Chakkavatii could rarely become Buddhas because the process is much more complicated. However, if the human Chakkavatti could successfully become Buddhas, they will be more superlative than common Buddhas. The Human Chakkavatti who chooses to train himself or herself in the tasks and/or meditative superknowledge in the lineage of Chakkavatti or Imperial Dhamma in order to become another Lord Buddha is called the 'Bodhi-Chakkavatti.'
1. Mastering the exercise and control of power to benefit or disbenefit oneself and others appropriately and righteously.
2. Mastering the clarification on accurate knowledge and understanding for oneself and others as per the truth.
3. Mastering the leadership in managing subordinate people to work together for mutual success and achievement.
4. Mastering the acquiring, allocating, and spending properties adequately per necessity without unnecessary wasting.
5. Mastering the beautification of surrounding belongings and one’s own mind in order to bring happiness and satisfaction to oneself and others.
6. Mastering the hospitality, gentleness, and generosity towards people from all walks of life in order to benefit oneself and others.
7. Mastering the quickness, promptness, and powerfulness in performing many tasks either externally or internally (meditation).
Generally speaking, common Buddhists
think, speak, and act meritoriously to pursue the 10 virtuous perfections
namely (i) generosity (ii) moral discipline (iii) renunciation (iv) wisdom (v)
perseverance (vi) patience (vii) truthfulness (viii) resolution (ix) compassion
and (x) equanimity, at three levels which are (A) persistence (B) self sacrificing and (C) life sacrificing; however, one who pursues the path of
Chakkavatti or Imperial Dhamma Body / Imperial Buddhahood has to train oneself
additionally to earn skills or accumulation of Kaya-Siddhi or enhancing the
existing Seven Precious Kaya-Siddhi in the aforesaid seven fields from (1) to
(7). The Seven Precious Kaya-Siddhi are (i) the precious bladed discus
(ii) the precious crystall ball (iii) the Noble Lord of Force (iv) the Noble
Lord of Treasure (v) the Noble Lady (vi) the Noble Elephant and (vii) the Noble
