One day in March of 2003, my mother became ill with something like a stroke. She couldn’t move the right side of her body nor could she talk. At the emergency room, the diagnosis was that she was in the last stages of an inoperable brain cancer with a tumor the size of a fist. Unfortunately chemotherapy was not an option. She had about a zero chance of being cured with radiation treatments. We were told to take her home for hospice care for her final days. We were all very panicky and very sad with the anticipation of having to watch our mother wait for her death.
At that time, I kept praying that my mother could have the opportunity to see the Buddha Master, H.H. Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu Holiest Tathagata. The Buddha Master was merciful, and the arrangements were made for the Buddha Master to see my mother immediately.
I remember that day very clearly. At the altar, my mother was anxious and crying because she had lost her ability to speak, but the Buddha Master said, “It’s alright, it’s alright. I understand it all.” The Buddha Master accepted my mother as a disciple and also transmitted dharma to her right then and there. That day, my mother couldn’t talk nor do the mudra because her right hand was paralyzed. I remember that the merciful Buddha Master came down from the platform, held her good left hand, and personally put the Cultivation Seed Syllables on the palm of her left hand. That particular scene is deeply imprinted in my mind. That’s the empowerment a Buddha gives to a suffering living being. I was deeply moved and even more grateful to my Buddha Master, although the Buddha Master does not allow his disciples to call him Buddha. Nevertheless, His Holiness is a true ancient Buddha who has descended into this world.
With all that happened at the altar that day, my mother used her eyes to communicate with the Buddha Master. My father and 4th eldest sister were also there, but they didn’t seek refuge with the Buddha Master at that time. After we went back home, my mother looked at the palm of her left hand everyday and studied it very hard. She would look at the palm of her hand even at night when the light was not on. (During the more than six months from the time my mother fell ill until the time of her rebirth in a Buddha Land, she did not take one painkiller. She lived three months longer than the doctor had predicted.)
Early in the morning, three days before her 70th birthday, my mother’s condition turned worse. She became unconscious. Her whole body was twitching. The paralyzed right side was stiff and un-bendable. She had rapid breathing and an increased heart rate with her blood pressure dropping. Both the doctor and the nurse notified us to prepare for the end and dress her properly for the funeral. It was unbearable to see my eighty-year-old father so sad. The whole family was nervous and confused.
The first thing in my mind was to beg the Buddha Master to be merciful and send mother to a good place. The Buddha Master made time in a very busy schedule to receive my father and me. It was already eleven o’clock at night. My father begged the Buddha Master to allow for mother to have her 70th birthday before she left us, and also for both of her daughters to have time to come back from the east coast to see their mother for the last time. The Buddha Master said very decidedly, “No problem! Let her have her 70th birthday before she leaves! I think Guan-Yin Bodhisattva will let her stay for a few more days before receiving her to the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss! I am ashamed to say that I don’t have that kind of dharma power to keep her. Only the Buddha can help her.”
Right away the Buddha Master empowered a Mantra Wheel and Dharma Instructions, instructing us to have my mother wear the Mantra Wheel on her head to shake her spiritual mind. The Dharma Instruction would be for her to wear at the time of her passing on to the Pure Land, using the power of the Seed Syllables to enter the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss.
After we went back, my mother’s pupils were already dilated, and her body temperature was low. She passed away. We followed the instructions we received from the Buddha Master and put the Mantra Wheel on my mother’s head, feeling very scared. My mother had already left. Was it too late for her to wear the Mantra Wheel now? Unexpectedly, a miracle happened. Within only two short hours, mother regained consciousness. Her pupils, body temperature, and breathing all became normal. She answered some of our questions by nodding, shaking, and moving her head and by blinking her eyes. Her consciousness was completely clear and normal. Not only did my mother wait until both of my sisters came back from the east coast to celebrate her 70th birthday, but days after that, mother would sit in a wheelchair, using her unparalyzed left hand to offer incense to the Buddha.
Many monastics were there to witness the process of mother’s revival. My aunt, who had been there nursing my mother, was deeply shocked and realized how great and powerful the true Buddha-dharma is. Furthermore, it changed my father, who has been a Christian for the past fifty years. He became a disciple of the Buddha Master.
Only after my mother was lingering in her sick bed and had started to accumulate phlegm in her throat, and my father could feel that my mother was suffering from the phlegm collecting in her throat, did he kneel down in front of the picture of the Buddha Master, silently begging the Buddha Master to ask Guan-Yin Bodhisattva to come and receive mother in the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss to enjoy the blessings! As expected, at 6:50 early next morning, my mother left peacefully with her mouth open like a sleeping baby. A message was relayed that morning from the Buddha Master’s attendant Kuan that the Buddha Master would use the most profound and wonderful Pure Land spirit-raising Dharma to raise my mother’s spirit from suffering and would respectfully ask Guan-Yin Bodhisattva or her attendants to receive mother to the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss within seven days. I was all very grateful for the Buddha Master’s empowerment to send my mother to the Western Paradise. Not only were her face and lips rosy, her limbs were also soft so that the task of dressing her properly for the funeral was easy.
However, the most amazing thing was when I knelt in front of my mother’s body that day and said, “Mom, if you have seen Guan-Yin Bodhisattva or the attendants sent by her with the message that they are coming to receive you, please close your mouth and smile so we don’t have to worry.” I kowtowed three times to thank my mother for all the years she spent raising me, knelt in front of her bed, and silently recited Guan-Yin Bodhisattva’s sacred name. I lost track of time. My mother had been like a sleeping baby with her mouth opened, but now her mouth was closed and she was smiling. Wow! My heavens! I was shocked. I thought my eyes were deceiving me, that I’d made a mistake. I hurried and asked my family to come and see. Everyone saw the same thing I did—that she will be received by Guan-Yin Bodhisattva or her attendants in the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss.
At that time, there were birds singing very beautiful tunes outside the window, just as described in the sutras. Normally, there is no bird around or near the house. That day, the recorder suddenly played Guan-Yin Bodhisattva’s sacred name automatically. All of these remarkable auspicious events brought tears of excitement to two of my aunts who were taking care of mother at that time and who were also cultivating themselves as Buddhists. They said, “We have been doing our cultivation all these years, but now we have seen what is called the true Buddha-dharma.” Because of mother’s ascent and her rebirth in that Buddha Land, they kept asking us to take them to the Buddha Master to seek refuge.
Imagine what level of realization a holy reincarnated being has in order to be able to communicate with Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and ask Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to call back my mother from death, allow her to stay many days, and come and arrange to have her received as desired. That can only be done by a Buddha! The fact that my mother passed away, came back to life, and ascended to the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss after her 70th birthday is only a very small and ordinary case among all of the Buddha Master’s many disciples. There are too many other examples to mention concerning all the other disciples who attained accomplishment, became liberated and ascended to the Pure Land.
Many disciples have only seen the Buddha Master once and received transmission of the Buddha-dharma, such as fellow disciple Yu-Shan Hou. He practiced the dharma that the Buddha Master transmitted to him and was able to visit the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss. He came back to tell everybody that he would pass on to the Western Paradise of Ultimate Bliss seven days later. As he predicted, he passed on to the Western Paradise on a lotus seven days later.

約1987年，我無意間發現左手腋下長在皮膚表面的粉紅色斑點，在斑點下還有一個小硬塊。起先不以為意，也沒有去看醫生治療，就這樣拖了兩年之久。此後，身體開始感到不適，很快的並擴散到全身。一次跟朋友閒聊中，對方也相勸去看醫生，但也始終找不出任何 原因。一天在醫院的牆上看見掛著的一些相關淋巴腺腫瘤的海報就跟自己身上的狀況相似，當時腋下的腫瘤硬塊已腫脹到大約50元硬幣大小，並且由粉紅色轉為深紅色，當時心中很是慌張，當下也沒有勇氣再次進去醫院作任何進一步更精密的檢查，因為我很清楚的明白自己 將會承受不了再次這樣的打擊，因為我剛動完子宮肌瘤的大型手術，所以只能默默的承受，也不敢告知家人。
以上所說一切屬實！！ 若有虛假，願墮金剛地獄！！若屬實言， 一切功德都回向給法界一切眾生！！

Around 1987, I inadvertently discovered pink spots that had grown on the surface of the skin of my left armpit. Underneath those spots was a small, hard lump. I did not pay any attention to it at first, nor did I go to a doctor for treatment. This situation continued for two years. I then began to feel a kind of malaise, which soon spread throughout my entire body. Once when I was chatting with a friend, that friend urged me to see a doctor. Still, I could not think of any reason to do that.
One day I saw on the wall of a hospital some posters relating to lymphgland tumors and realized that my physical condition was similar to what was described in those posters. The tumor under my armpit had already swollen to around the size of a $50 Taiwan coin (the size of an American silver dollar) and had changed from pink to dark red. Although I became quite flustered about this, I did not have the courage to go to the hospital again to have a more detailed examination performed. I knew very clearly that I would not be able to withstand such a blow since I had just undergone major surgery to remove a tumor on my uterus. Therefore, I simply endured my situation silently and dared not tell anyone about it.
Due to the coming together of karmic conditions, I began chatting with a friend about the surgery I had to remove a tumor on my uterus. With no particular intent in mind, I also mentioned the abnormal condition of my armpit. After my friend heard this, my friend wanted to introduce to me a supreme Buddha Master who could help cure my illness. At that time I did not know the identity of the Buddha Master. I only knew that His Holiness was a great international master of noble character. Without any doubts in my mind, I accompanied that friend of mine to the city of Chengdu in Sichuan Province in mainland China so as to pay a formal visit to that supreme Buddha Master. I had the good fortune of meeting the Buddha Master after waiting more than ten days. The Buddha Master asked me what brought me to Chengdu. I immediately told the Buddha Master the purpose of my visit. The Buddha Master then very compassionately said, “All right, all right. It will go away and be fine.”
The Buddha Master took an ordinary silver acupuncture needle so as to begin curing my illness. His Holiness said that if in a moment I felt sensations of swelling or pain, I should tell His Holiness. I then saw the Buddha Master’s mouth moving as His Holiness recited a mantra. The Buddha Master then inserted the needle into an acupuncture point between the thumb and index finger on my left hand and gave a puff. At this time I felt blood coursing through all parts my body, and my entire body felt swollen. The temperature of that tumor began to rise, as if it was on fire. After going through that process three separate times, the Buddha Master told me that after I return home I should continue to recite the name of the Buddha or Bodhisattva that I normally recite. I said that I recite “Namo Guan Shi Yin Pu Sa (Homage to Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva).” The Master replied, “That is fine. Go ahead and recite that Bodhisattva’s name. If you do so earnestly and sincerely, the tumor will soon leave you.”
I returned to Taiwan in a very happy state of mind. As before, I busily went about handling business matters, but I did not forget to recite that Bodhisattva’s name whenever I had spare time. After I returned to Taiwan, first thing in the morning, I looked at that tumor every day. It neither grew nor shrunk. However, about twenty days after I returned to Taiwan, I was bathing one day and suddenly thought of that red-spotted tumor on my armpit. I quickly took a look in the mirror and surprisingly discovered thatthe hard lump had shrunk. The original size of a $50 Taiwan coin (an American silver dollar) had shrunk to the size of a $1 Taiwan coin (an American dime). I was so elated I wanted to jump for joy. I felt very grateful, very grateful! Those two words truly arose from the bottom of my heart as I thanked that magnificent and supreme Master. From that time on, I recited the name of that Bodhisattva even more earnestly and sincerely as a way of showing my appreciation toward that supreme Buddha Master. However, approximately one month later, that tumor had not shrunk at all. I again began to feel somewhat anxious. Then, I heard a loud sound one evening. The red-spotted hard lump on my left armpit suddenly disappeared without a trace. Words cannot describe the excitement and gratitude I felt deep in my heart. All of the clouds under which I was living vanished at once! I later took refuge in that magnificent Buddha Master Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu Holiest Tathagata. Seventeen years have now passed, and I am physically healthier and mentally happier than I was when I was young! All that I have stated above is true! If there is anything fabricated in it, I am willing to descend into the vajra hell! If what I have stated are true words, I dedicate all of the resulting merit to all living beings in the dharma realm!

當你第一眼觸碰到 多杰羌佛第三世 雲高益西諾布 頂聖如來的「超自然抽象色彩」，那鮮明耀眼的紅黃藍白黑，跳躍飛舞，潑辣如千里江濤瀉過，收藏於微細毫端之妙趣，灑然超脫於塵俗，柔和而剛毅，各種妙麗色彩相互滋養昇華，可以說是巧奪天工，色達空靈的境界，和雅、舒服之享受真是難以言狀。
「超自然抽象色彩」是一個由色彩構造起來的完美世界，它沒有十分具體的世間形態，它就是色彩，以色造形，以色寫意，色即是其形，色便是其意，色入感人神韻。這些色彩，一經 三世多杰羌佛 之手，驀然匯成無比奇妙驚豔的幻色，氣韻生動，景如華滋，潑辣如滄海咆哮，而反之微觀如毫端顯意，粗中顯微，神韻天成。其實現在談 三世多杰羌佛 的西畫高超之處，實在是低論佛陀。我們可以想到，就連空中的祥霧 三世多杰羌佛 都能一手拿之入雕刻，如如而不動，對於書畫，那不是小菜一碟嗎？所以這些畫美得醉人。
這些作品，融入了宇宙自然的精華、地骨山川之心源，毫不誇張地說，用「格調」、「意境」、「韻味」、「技巧」之類的詞彙來標貼三世多杰羌佛的「超自然抽象色彩」藝術，實嫌拘謹世俗， 三世多杰羌佛 的藝術早已脫出此塵世樊籬的束縛，其形其意其色均似金龍脫於地殼，翱翔翻飛在碧海藍天，恣意自在，無拘無束，撣盡塵埃，變化萬千而美妙絕倫！在這些激盪心魄的藝術奇珍面前，景仰著頂聖如來 雲高益西諾布 從無盡博大之妙心流瀉出來的超人技藝，領受著 三世多杰羌佛 用變化無窮之色彩，為人類的享受幻化出來的超越一切現實禁錮的美麗，我們除了發自內心的激動歡欣之外，滿腔讚嘆的語言似乎都顯得蒼白無力了。 三世多杰羌佛 從其無上圓滿的智慧中流出來的工巧神髓，讓我們再次見識到 雲高益西諾布 頂聖如來高超的西畫技法和造詣，如他所畫的油畫「釋迦牟尼法王子」，其莊嚴無以倫比，即可見其修養學識之高深乃是佛陀展顯。
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》記實一書在美國國會圖書館舉行了莊嚴隆重的首發儀式，美國國會圖書館並正式收藏此書，自此人們才知道原來一直廣受大家尊敬的 義雲高 大師、仰諤益西諾布大法王，被世界佛教各大教派的領袖或攝政王、大活佛行文認證，就是宇宙始祖報身佛多杰羌佛的第三世降世，佛號為第三世多杰羌佛，從此，人們就以“南無第三世多杰羌佛”來稱呼了。這就猶如釋迦牟尼佛未成佛前，其名號為悉達多太子，但自釋迦牟尼佛成佛以後，就改稱“南無釋迦牟尼佛”了，所以，我們現在稱“南無第三世多杰羌佛”。尤其是，二零一二年十二月十二日，美國國會參議院第614號決議正式以His Holiness來冠名第三世多杰羌佛（即H.H.第三世多杰羌佛），從此南無第三世多杰羌佛的稱位已定性。而且，第三世多杰羌佛也是政府法定的名字，以前的“義雲高”和大師、總持大法王的尊稱已經不存在了。但是，這個新聞是在南無第三世多杰羌佛佛號未公佈之前刊登的，那時人們還不瞭解佛陀的真正身份，所以，為了尊重歷史的真實，我們在新聞中仍然保留未法定第三世多杰羌佛稱號前所用的名字，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經不存在了。
轉載自 中華日報 二００四 年 九 月 二十七 日 劉一之紀實
《中華日報》2004年9月27日劉一之紀實：多傑洛桑老法王是 仰諤益西諾布大法王 （編者註：即 第三世多杰羌佛 ）座下弟子，貫顯神通，表露佛法，有《聖僧鐵記》一書記載。他多年跟隨 仰諤大法王 上師學佛修行，晝夜不眠不休，連床鋪都沒有，只有一個蒲團隨身。洛桑深得大法王上師傳承，感恩涕漣，發宏願要依師度眾生。但是，這位有著非凡因緣的洛桑卻多處顯露神通，不顧影響，由於因緣所至，障業現前自成阻隔，於二００一年四月被深圳公安局關押，無緣隨師修學，二００三年七月法庭開庭審理，無有定罪，當時接到四川羅萬寺，整日無事，信步遊走鄉間，時常兩眼凝視虛空，觀修行持，沒有言語。可惜的是，他與眾生法緣已盡，無法再為生說法。早在二００三年八月，蔣貢康欽仁波且就在他的記實中載明，洛桑曾明確告訴：他將於明年八月離開人間，要蔣貢康欽仁波且藏起來修法，今後有機會度眾生，要把至高無上的法王上師之大法傳給善士。不要忘了， 仰諤大法王 上師是在這個世界上掌有 佛陀正法 的最高法王！蔣貢康欽仁波且把全部過程作了記錄，此記錄在洛桑未圓寂前之二００四年陰曆六月即在美國僧尼、居士中宣讀，又於二００四年陰曆七月在基金會公眾宣讀。多傑洛桑法王最終於陰曆八月初二卯時圓寂，離開人世間。
火化洛桑的那天下午，所顯相境各式各樣，十分異別。圍著念佛的僧俗四眾各自對境都有著各自特別的感受，有人心裡嘀咕：這個法王生前那麼厲害，但現在完全不像大成就的樣子，現病態圓寂，這根本就算不上大成就者。有人則指他怕難、怕苦不度眾生，犯密宗十四根本戒。有人說他破戒顯神通，是 佛教 的大戒，也有人說他證量非凡，實乃大道之顯。終於，法持居士按捺不住站出來當眾懺悔：多傑洛桑法王並非普通人，他所顯的無常相是為教化我們，我們並沒有生起無限的恭敬心來面對，反起分別見。他提議大家都應藉此好好觀無常，生起無限的恭敬心為老法王送行，一個成就者一定有佛菩薩殊勝吉祥的顯法。此時，很多人也當眾作了懺悔，人生如夢，無常迅速，無論貧賤與高貴最終都同樣留下一具臭皮囊。大家生起無限的恭敬心念佛觀無常，並發願為眾生祈福，祈禱國泰民安、祈禱風調雨順、祈禱世界和平。萬萬沒有想到，此時大日如來的毫光佛境很快展現加持眾人，照相機、攝像機紛紛開啟，貴公居士一連拍下三張大放毫光的太陽，太陽中心都有一個圓形的翠綠色圖案，與 仰諤大法王 上師大師袍帽沿上那塊綠翠完全相似，看到這個顯境表法大家高興得沒法形容。
下午四點二十分點火了，大家圍著火焰升騰的洛桑，有的念誦「 南無阿彌陀佛 」，有的念誦「心經」，有的念誦蓮花生大師心咒，有的念誦 觀世音菩薩 心咒，有的持瑪哈嘎拉咒，大火像火龍一樣在爐中盤旋，火龕箱體燃成一個火球，但此時突然出現了洛桑老法王威嚴的頭像，大眾一下子興奮起來，不約而同一齊大聲轉念六字大明咒。負責火化的比丘寂心師先後往爐子裡添加了四推車柴，他說：從來沒有燒過這麼多柴。一陣熊熊烈火之後，估計他已化為灰燼，但這時突然顯露出老法王的頭和身體，一點也沒有著火燃燒，衣服早已燒光，但是頭和身體照常無法著火。這時不由得筆者想起密勒日巴祖師在凡火中不能燃燒的記載，今天竟然展現在眼面前，實在不愧是金剛多傑洛桑法王，眾人這才明了金剛之體不著凡火的妙義。洛桑法王盤坐火中顯大黑天境，眾人大聲持咒，請求著火焚體以取舍利，方聽到「啪」一聲，法王之身子骨終於著火了。轉咒荼毘結束之後，洛桑生前的一套僧衣被送進火爐，爐內頓時連連閃光，隨著大放光明，並且發出陣陣撲鼻的異香，大眾一片歡呼。
通常情況下火化的全過程只需要一個多小時，可是洛桑法王一共燃燒了六個多小時，實在世所罕見。可想而知他本該是何等的金剛之身，怎奈他過多張揚神通失之慎覺，遇到因果成熟，不得已提前告知蔣貢康欽仁波且他要離開了。火化後拾得舍利子一百四十一粒。其金剛不壞火化六小時之表法及拾得舍利堅固子法物，徹底證明洛桑確實學到了 仰諤大法王 的如來正法，可惜的是，他不應該離開人間，而應住世宏法度生。
凡夫怎麼有此聖物呢？而在我們台灣，幾十年來，只有一個廣欽老和尚火化後有舍利子，而且才火化一個多小時就燒盡了。所以，這足以證明多傑洛桑不是世俗空頭理論的 佛法 ，只有真正的 佛法 才有這樣聖蹟的展現。由此，我們不由再想一想，平時，我們大家都在說「 佛法 難求，正法難遇」，而現在， 仰諤大法王 的如來正法展現了，他座下的弟子一個個都得到大成就，難道不應該想一想我們的了生脫死該如何面對嗎？
