The following was released by the International Buddhism Sangha Association:
At a special ceremony held April 3 at the Library of Congress of The United States, the International Buddhism Sangha Association (IBSA) presented to the American people the newly-published precious Buddhist book called H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III.
Dr. Judy S. Lu, Director of the Asian Branch of the Library of Congress accepted the book from the Venerable Dharma Teacher Long Hui, president of the IBSA. According to the Venerable Long Hui, the publication of this precious book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III announces to the entire world the news that a true Buddha has descended into the world. This incarnated Buddha is Dorje Chang Buddha (aka Buddha Vajradhara), who is the primordial and highest Buddha according to the lineage charts of all Buddhist sects. The entire name of this Buddha is H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Holiest Tathagata Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu. More than fifty of the world’s highest great dharma kings, rinpoches, and other persons of holy virtue have recognized or congratulated His Holiness as being the true incarnation of Dorje Chang Buddha. Those recognitions were made in accordance with the standard rituals of Buddhism by which such an identity is recognized. No other person in history has received so many recognitions from people of such high status.
The publication of this book reveals that H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Holiest Tathagata Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu is H.H. Master Wan Ko Yee, who now resides in the United States. People around the world know H.H. Master Wan Ko Yee as a Buddhist Master who is completely proficient in exoteric and esoteric Buddhism and who has perfect mastery of the Five Vidyas. Before His Holiness was recognized as the incarnation of Dorje Chang Buddha according to the rituals of Buddhism, Buddhists called him a great Dharma King because of his vast talents. They never imagined at that time that His Holiness is the true incarnation of a Buddha in this world. Actually, the status of His Holiness was already entered into the Congressional Record earlier.
H.H. Master Wan Ko Yee has been teaching and edifying people for several decades. In the past, His Holiness used the names “Anonymous Practitioner,” “Ordinary Cultivator,” and “Servant of Living Beings” to refer to himself. His Holiness has never called himself a Buddha. His Holiness has severely dealt with those so-called “eminent monastics and greatly virtuous ones” who claimed to have attained realization when in fact they had not. His Holiness has even more severely berated those disciples who are ordinary people yet claimed to be holy ones. Great karmic conditions have now matured in Buddhism that are of benefit to living beings. In accordance with these karmic conditions, holy and virtuous dharma kings, regent dharma kings, and great rinpoches of various Buddhist sects have announced the true identity of His Holiness.
The book presentation ceremony took place in the Member’s Room of the Library of Congress, which is reserved for the use of congresspersons, at the request of the late chairman of the House Foreign Relations Committee, Hon. Tom Lantos. The ceremony was hosted by the Library of Congress and the International Buddhism Sangha Association. Among the honored guests who attended were congressional representatives, including Republican Congresswoman Hon. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, ranking member of Foreign Affairs Committee, ambassadors from the United Nations, ambassadors from the Americas diplomatic corps, and the Chief of Protocol of the Organization of American States. Also in attendance were dharma kings, rinpoches, and dharma teachers from around the world who belong to a wide variety of Buddhist sects, such as the Sakya, Nyingma, Geluk, Kagyu, Kadampa, Jonang, Chod, exoteric, Zen, and Pure Land sects.
H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III did not attend that grand ceremony. H.E. Denma Tsemang Great Dedengba II Longzhi Tanpe Nyima Rinoche, who is the person responsible for arranging audiences with H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, said that His Holiness was in retreat praying for world peace and for the safety and well-being of all living beings. That is why His Holiness was unable to attend that grand ceremony.
Famous incarnations of extremely holy Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, all of whom are of the highest order in Buddhism today, have recognized or congratulated H.H. Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu Holiest Tathagata as being the true incarnation of Dorje Chang Buddha, the primordial sambhogakaya Buddha. Those who issued recognitions or congratulations include H.H. Dharma King Sakya Trizin, the supreme leader of the Sakya sect; H.H. Dharma King Dodrupchen IV, the sole holder of the complete Longchen Nying-thik dharma; H.H.

Tangtong Gyalpo Rinpoche, a famous figure of great holiness and virtue in Tibetan esoteric Buddhism; the Qinghai Kumbum Monastery, which was the monastery of Master Tsongkhapa; the Mindrolling Monastery of the Nyingma sect; and many others. All of these highest-level dharma kings, rinpoches, and monasteries of various Buddhist sects have recognized or congratulated H.H. Master Wan Ko Yee for being the true incarnation of Dorje Chang Buddha, for being H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, and for having a level of realization and accomplishment unmatched by anyone else in history.
During his speech, H.E. Denma Tsemang II Longzhi Tanpe Nyima Rinpoche offered silk scarves to the precious book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. He in essence said the following in part of his speech: The founder of Buddhism in our earthly world is Sakyamuni Buddha. Dorje Chang Buddha is the first sambhogakaya Buddha in the universe with form and is the highest leader of Buddhism in the universe. Amitabha Buddha, who people know of, was a disciple of Dorje Chang Buddha. Dorje Chang Buddha also transformed into Dipamkara Buddha, who taught Buddha-dharma to Sakyamuni Buddha. Thus, Dorje Chang Buddha is called the primordial sambhogakaya Buddha in the universe. If Dorje Chang Buddha did not exist in the universe, there would be no Buddha-dharma, there would be no Buddhas, and of course there would be no Buddhism or Buddhist disciples. Thus, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is naturally the highest leader of Buddhism. The book H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is the most complete and magnificent Buddhist book in the recorded history of earth.
Master Long Hui of the International Buddhism Sangha Association said during her speech: Because H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu is the true incarnation of the primordial Buddha, the wisdom of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is higher than that of any other Buddha. His Holiness has the same status in Buddhism as the Pope has in Catholicism. The accomplishment of His Holiness in the dharma is higher than that of all others in the universe. That is why the accomplishments that His Holiness manifests in this world are unique. The book uses pictures and text to record numerous magnificent accomplishments of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III. These accomplishments are backed up by irrefutable facts. The contents of the book will benefit countless living beings. Because the level of enlightenment of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III is higher than that of any other Buddha, His Holiness can transmit a Buddha-dharma that causes the disciple who receives it to attain enlightenment and liberation within two hours. It is the fastest Buddha-dharma practice whereby a disciple can enter and leave a Buddha-land at will.
Those Buddhists of holy virtue who were fortunate to have attended the book presentation ceremony were very astounded and moved at what they heard about this Buddha who has descended into the world.
