Strickmann claims that the Puxian pusa shuo zhengming jing 普賢菩薩說證明經 T2879 is a Chinese apocalyptic composition which dates from the late sixth century. The sūtra refers to the “white-robed religious and laymen” which relates to the whitening of religious robes characteristic of later Maitreyan movements. For more on this text, Strickmann refers to Forte, Political Propaganda, pp. 271-280.
