"The study of apocryphal texts is probably the single most important task facing Chinese Buddhist studies today. This volume has done much to get it off on the right foot." --Journal of Asian Studies 50 (1991) "Few books of scholarly essays are this ambitious. The editor ... intends to introduce not just new studies, but a new field of study.... However, rather than marking the birth of Buddhist apocrypha studies, the book ... successfully demonstrates its early maturity." --Monumenta Serica 40 (1992) "The essays are without exception meticulous in scholarship and path-finding in significance." --Journal of Chinese Religions 20 (1992)

“Those who are not eligible to read this book will not get to see it; Those who are casual readers will not understand this book; Those who were awaiting this message will take cue and the next step” - Mohanji Mohanji united the apparent contrast of highest spiritual mastery and successfully worldly life. In The Power Of Purity Mohanji, in his authentic and unassuming way, moves the minds and hearts of people of all confessions and backgrounds to lead them back to their own souls. Mohanji has been conducting meditations and giving Shaktipat (energy transfer from the higher realms of consciousness aiding participants’ spiritual elevation) for many years. The mission, based on the timeless tradition of unconditional love, with faith and purity as its pillars, aims at creating a movement of unconditionality - going beyond all man-made barriers, such as caste, creed, color, culture, community, country and religion. Mohanji believes in raising people’s consciousness and inspiring them to surrender to existence and operate from the level of unconditional love. Complete liberation is the ultimate aim.
