Do - Ring [Annotated By Gregory Pearson] Urga Manuscript : Being the Letter of Do-Ring (scribe of the Panchan Lama of tibet) Written from the Urga Lamasery to Wing-On His Friend
Pearson Foundation, U.K., 1949 First Edition. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket. 55 pages, size 9 inches tall by 7 inches, in paper covers. Illustrations to the front and rear flaps, Potala Lahassa to the frontispiece and Cho-Ten to the rear endpaper. NB THERE SHOULD BE ANOTHER ILLUSTRATION OPPOSITE PAGE 5 BUT THIS HAS BEEN REMOVED. ' The Urga Manuscript has been described as the most important document on the subject of Occultism to come to the Western world in the past two centuries. Its history constitutes one of the great romances of occult legend for, unlike many of the other revelations concerning the occult, it is an authentic document written by human hands and was not revealed, in a mystic manner. The Manuscript was written (c. 1921) at Urga in Outer Mongolia by Do-Ring, scribe of the late Panchan Lama. It is in the form of a letter to Wing-On, Chinese trader and investigator into occult and psychic matters. Wing-On was the friend and business associate of Major Gregory Pearson and quietly played his part in bringing this simple but amazing teaching of the Inner Temples of Tibet to the Occidental world. Major Pearson travelled and traded in Outer Mongolia for nearly two decades, and it was he who, receiving the Manuscript from Wing-On, translated it from its original classical Mandarin into Cantonese and later, for the use of his American and Canadian friends, into English. Presented in this volume is the literal English translation of the original letter as written to Wing-On by Do-Ring; this is accompanied by a paragraph commentary prepared from the notes made by Major Pearson and issued with the approval of the Pearson Foundation and the International Occult Psychic Research Guild. It is my sincere hope that through this simplified teaching, with its emphasis upon the essential necessity of personal purification before receiving the full impact of occult blessing, and its teaching of the evolving progress of man to his ultimate perfection, this Manuscript will prove of lasting value to all those occult students into whose hands it shall come.
