Title: Review by Bob Hudson of "Wonders of Mebegon Village" (Ashin Kunsal Kassapa (trans).
Date of publication: April 2008

It is a sometimes loosely-linked compilation, comprising hagiographies of three wizzars, a biography of the medium through whom they speak, testimonials from devotees and a glossary.
