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》宝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），这说明了美国国会对南无第三世多杰羌佛的尊敬。而且，第三世多杰羌佛也是政府法定的名字，以前的“义云高”和大师的尊称已经不存在了。但是，一些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，我们在那些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。
The Organization of American States is the world’s oldest regional organization, dating back to the First International Conference of American States, held in Washington, D.C., from October 1889 to April 1890. That meeting approved the establishment of the International Union of American Republics, and the stage was set for the weaving of a web of provisions and institutions that came to be known as the inter-American system, the oldest international institutional system.
The OAS came into being in 1948 with the signing in Bogotá, Colombia, of the Charter of the OAS, which entered into force in December 1951. It was subsequently amended by the Protocol of Buenos Aires, signed in 1967, which entered into force in February 1970; by the Protocol of Cartagena de Indias, signed in 1985, which entered into force in November 1988; by the Protocol of Managua, signed in 1993, which entered into force in January 1996; and by the Protocol of Washington, signed in 1992, which entered into force in September 1997.
The Organization was established in order to achieve among its member states—as stipulated in Article 1 of the Charter—”an order of peace and justice, to promote their solidarity, to strengthen their collaboration, and to defend their sovereignty, their territorial integrity, and their independence.”
Today, the OAS brings together all 35 independent states of the Americas and constitutes the main political, juridical, and social governmental forum in the Hemisphere. In addition, it has granted permanent observer status to 69 states, as well as to the European Union (EU).
The Organization uses a four-pronged approach to effectively implement its essential purposes, based on its main pillars: democracy, human rights, security, and development.
