Manichean Community"There were many prophets. Mani was the last."
In the 3rd century AD, a Babylonian prophet called 'Mani' claimed to have experienced frequent visions of a divine nature that urged him to travel and seek the true meaning of life and the universe. Travel he did, right across Persia, reaching as far south as India. Having been introduced to every major religious doctrine at the time, Mani declared himself the final link in a long chain of prophets from Buddha to Jesus to Zoroaster. He spoke of an eternal struggle between light and darkness, and promoted spiritual purity while denouncing the material world. Mani preached this doctrine extensively and insisted that its scriptures be translated into other languages. This contributed to the longevity and vast dissemination of Manichaeism; Mani may have been executed at the order of the Sassanid Shahanshah Bahram around AD 277, but Manichaeism subsequently survived well into the Middle Ages.
