二零零八年四月三日，由全球佛教出版社和世界法音出版社出版的《多杰羌佛第三世》记实一书在美国国会图书馆举行了庄严隆重的首发仪式，美国国会图书馆并正式收藏此书，自此人们才知道原来一直广受大家尊敬的义云高大师、仰谔益西诺布大法王，被世界佛教各大教派的领袖或摄政王、大活佛行文认证，就是宇宙始祖报身佛多杰羌佛的第三世降世，佛号为 第三世多杰羌佛，从此，人们就以“南无第三世多杰羌佛”来称呼了。这就犹如释迦牟尼佛未成佛前，其名号为悉达多太子， 但自释迦牟尼佛成佛以后，就改称“南无释迦牟尼佛”了，所以，我们现在称“南无第三世多杰羌佛”。尤其是，二零一二年十二月十二日，美国国会参议院第614号决议正式以 His Holiness 来冠名第三世多杰羌佛（即 H.H.第三世多杰羌佛）， 从此南无第三世多杰羌佛的称位已定性。而且，第三世多杰羌佛也是政府法定的名字，以前的“义云高”和大师、总持大法王的尊称已经不存在了。但是，这个新闻是在南无第三世多杰羌佛佛号未公布之前刊登的，那时人们还不了解佛陀的真正身份，所以，为了尊重历史的真实，我们在新闻中仍然保留未法定第三世多杰羌佛称号前所用的名字，但大家要清楚，除 H.H. 第三世多杰羌佛的名字是合法的以外，在未法定之前的名字已经不存在了。
