Book of Júk[edit]

The Book of Júk (or Jük/Juk) redirects here. Is that correct? The phrase is used by Bahá’u’lláh in his Lawh-i-Abdu'r-Razzáq (excerpt in Gleanings, section LXXXVII):

"Mention hath been made in certain books of a deluge which caused all that existed on earth, historical records as well as other things, to be destroyed. Moreover, many cataclysms have occurred which have effaced the traces of many events. Furthermore, among existing historical records differences are to be found, and each of the various peoples of the world hath its own account of the age of the earth and of its history. Some trace their history as far back as eight thousand years, others as far as twelve thousand years. To any one that hath read the book of Jük it is clear and evident how much the accounts given by the various books have differed."

No it is not that book. --Internet Scholar (talk) 18:01, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
I found this article of Juan Cole called "Baha'u'llah on Hinduism and Zoroastrianism: The Tablet to Mirza Abu'l-Fadl Concerning the Questions of Manakji Limji Hataria" which links the two titles. Is there evidence to the contrary? Wiki-uk (talk) 15:08, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

History, Authorship and Time Period of Yoga Vashishtha[edit]

Can somebody provide more scholarly opinions about the author and time period of Yogavashishta? What do the Western scholar say about this book's author and time period? Any clues would be very helpful for this article. Thanks.--Internet Scholar (talk) 18:04, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
