I removed my own addition due to lack of notability (as far as I can tell), despite a published reference. I'm including it here, however, for the curious:
Mahasthamaprapta can be translated as "Great Strength", "Strong Limb", "Mighty Branch", or a permutation of these. This has led to a suggestion that Mahasthamaprapta could be synonymous with `Abdu'l-Bahá of the Bahá'í tradition.

Correspondence to the Moon
The moon is only mentioned twice in the Contemplation Sutra, never in reference to Mahasthamaprapta. If such a correspondence does exist it must be iconographic, non-canonical, or in another scripture. If a source verifying the alleged correspondences cannot be found, the assertion should be deleted from the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Asiaj (talk • contribs) 18:46, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
