I have read the book before. Very graphical description of the lower hells. I found the book interesting and in some aspects, the books seems to be in line with Buddhist theories.
The book is never sold, I understand. And the English translation is so poor that I'm sure it is not written for glamour or fame. Unfortunately, although I'm Chinese, I don't know how to read the language so I've only ever read the English one.
I find the book intriguing. Thanks for reminding me about the book, Tan. I'll make an effort to find it online and tell everyone here about it.
: who want to understand what happens to one's soul after death? Try to read the Book (Journeys to the Underworld )originally issued in the Chinese Language and was the result of the Buddhist Deity Jigong bringing the soul of Mr.Yang Sheng a leading planchette handler of Sheng Xian Tang, Taiwan, to visit Hades on instructions of the Jade Emperor (Yu Huang Da Tian Zhun). The Jade Edict was issued on the
: 15th day in 8th moon (8th September, 1976 ) with the express intention of helping and saving human beings.
: The visits were completed in 62 journeys, the first being made on the 16th day of the 8th moon (9th
: September, 1976) and the last on the 26th day of the 8th moon (30th, July, 1978).
: This is not a story book . This is not a religious book in any sense, and in no way belittles any religion - indeed it encourages readers to
: continue practising religious beliefs of their own choice.
: This Book is published for FREE distribution.(You can find it at www.geocities.com )
: I hope all like it.
