Which Books and Versions to Use in Mission Projects?

Below is a list of the books and scriptures we used in the Mission to create our teachings and literature. By using these resources, your projects will be closer to the original base the Mission used. So your projects will reflect the Mission closely.

This does not mean that other versions or works are disapproved, or do not have some truth! However, in our experience, it is better to use these recommended resources than to use other resources. Maitreya himself used these, and many who used other resources have admitted that these are superior to what they used! In fact, they have had to revert to these after the project was done, after realizing that using these sources made their project even better than it was before.
