This publication is one of the results of a collaborative project researching vernacular Dunhuang manuscripts, conducted by Ghent University, Belgium, (in the framework of the "Ghent Database of Medieval Chinese Manuscripts") and the Dharma Drum Institute of Liberal Arts (DILA, Taiwan). In the project, which has been ongoing for the last three years, digital high-quality marked-up editions of important vernacular Dunhuang manuscripts are produced (mostly Bianwen 變文 and Jiangjingwen 講經文). Until now, ca. 20 texts have been digitized and critically edited. A selected number of texts will be newly edited in book form and bilingually translated.

This publication includes editions of two Dunhuang manuscripts of the Pomobian 破魔變 ("Transformation Text of the Destruction of Māra"), as well as a critical edition with annotated translations into modern Chinese and English. In addition, textual features such as Dunhuang character variants and phonetic loan characters are analyzed (including more than 100 pages of tables listing all the variants appearing in the text). The book also includes introductions in Chinese and English.
