“The purpose of life is to serve,” according to Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha. I’ve dedicated my life to this goal. “My life’s mission is to serve” (Zhi Gang Sha, Soul Mind Body Science System, Preface xiii, 2014). Sha’s detractors accuse him of brainwashing and scamming people with paid services like expensive karma cleansing and brainwashing camps. What is the real story of Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha?
Doctor of Medicine- Master Zhi Gang Sha
Dr. & Master Zhi Gang Sha claims to be “an M.D. in conventional modern medicine…” on his website. Nevertheless, there is no mention of what school he attended, where he graduated, or where he earned his medical degree on the website. This is in stark contrast to three well-known medical experts who use a combination of conventional contemporary medicine and alternative healing practices.
Dr. Andrew Weil, a proponent of holistic medicine, graduated from Harvard with an A.B. in biology, and an M.D. from Harvard Medical School, and completed his medical internship at Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco before working for the National Institute of Mental Health.
Dr. Mehmet Cengiz Oz, a prominent TV host and health guru, is a board-certified Thoracic Cardiovascular surgeon.
Dr. Deepak Chopra, a cardiologist with an interest in alternative medicine graduated from All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi and went on to become chief of medicine at New England Memorial Hospital. He was once closely associated with a purported “cult leader” Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (now called the Boston Regional Medical Center).
All three of these doctors have easily verifiable medical degrees, except “Dr. Sha.”

The Originator– Master Zhi Gang Sha
Master Sha goes into considerable depth in his book “Soul Mind Body Scientific System” about his beliefs, philosophies, and practices. He claims to be able to “produce “The Source Field,” which he believes can heal individuals. “I am the servant, vehicle, and channel of The Source,” Sha asserts (see Preface xviii). The Source has granted me the honor and authority to communicate with The Source in order to construct The Source Field.”
Such exclusive, seemingly self-aggrandizing pronouncements are frequently connected with “cult leaders.” Cult leader David Koresh, for example, claimed that an angel from heaven conveyed the meaning of the Seven Seals in the Book of Revelation to him. And that he was the only one who knew how to break the seals that would bring in the Day of Judgment. Koresh died in a fire, along with many of his followers, at the end of a 51-day confrontation with federal law enforcement. In the end, no one faced a day of judgment except Koresh, who was eventually found to be guilty of sexually abusing children.
The authoritarian and personality-driven nature of many disastrous cults is the most noticeable feature. That is, a single person often rules over a group of followers and makes unique claims about his or her authority. If the leader says something, it must be true, and if the leader says anything, it must be false.
The Magnificent Quintet– Master Zhi Gang Sha
“All eleven of [his] works provide profound soul secrets, wisdom, knowledge, and practical strategies to transform all life,” says Master Sha (see page 67). Nevertheless, unlike other authors, Master Sha does not merely write a book; he flows a book. “As I flow a book,” Sha continues, ” Heaven’s Team is also above me to guide and aid me.” “Gautama Buddha,” “Maitreya (the buddha of the future’),” “Yuan Shi Tian Zun (one of the three top saints in the traditional Taoist pantheon),” “Jesus,” “Mother Mary,” “St. Germaine,” “Albert Einstein,” “Sir Isaac Newton,” and “eight other renowned scientists in history are also above [his] head,” according to legend (see page 68).
To question Sha is to question Buddha, Jesus, or Albert Einstein, not to mention the numerous unknown scientists who instruct him. Similarly, Rev. Sun Myung Moon, founder of the Unification Church and reputed “cult” leader, invoked celestial authority. According to Moon, 36 former presidents endorsed him as “the Messiah” “from the vantage point of heaven.” Moon, on the other hand, was convicted of tax evasion, did time in prison, and was clearly a wicked messiah.
Sha says that every sentence in his work has been divinely inspired. “We [Sha and his followers] may hear Heaven’s writing staff, as well as instruction from the saints, the Divine, and Tao,” he says (page 69).
Sha has also received “deep inspiration” from The Source to establish particular “I Ching practices for healing, rejuvenation, longevity, and immortality.” Another exclusive claim made by Sha (see page 100) is that “this is the first time in history that I Ching power has been brought for these uses.” Sha claims to be in conversation with “the Divine” (see pages 108, 112). He asks, and the Almighty responds “quickly,” seemingly regardless of how cosmically convoluted the inquiry is. Sha, like the leaders of so-called “cults,” asserts that his teachings are the finest.
The Immortal Secret
Sha also claims to be aware of “one phrase secrets.” “How do I know one-sentence secrets?” he asks (see page 75). Remember, Heaven’s Team is above my head. I’ve also got a Jin Dan download… They then take my mouth and utter a new one-sentence secret.” As a result, Sha acts as Heaven’s mouthpiece.
How vital are Sha’s secrets? He claims to have a “one-sentence secret regarding the source of every ailment and the method for healing all sicknesses…” (see page 126). “If you are striving for rejuvenation, longevity, and, most importantly, immortality, you must remove wants for fame, money, power, control, and much more, because these desires will severely damage your rejuvenation and longevity journey,” Sha says (see page 156).
Likewise, this is reminiscent of Charles Brown, the originator of the Eternal Flame, subsequently known as “People Forever” and “People Unlimited.” Brown claimed to have discovered the secret to eternal life and to be able to stop aging through a process he dubbed “cellular awakening.”
According to Sha, the key to immortality is to stop aiming for prestige and wealth. “If one is striving for rejuvenation, longevity, and, most importantly, immortality, one must remove wants for fame, money, power, control, and much more, because these goals will severely damage your rejuvenation and longevity journey,” he says (see page 156). If you have these kinds of aspirations, dreams, and attachments, you can never achieve immortality.”
In his paper “Cult Formation,” published at Harvard University, Lifton also discussed the three most basic primary features of a destructive cult. He explains that “a charismatic leader who increasingly becomes an object of adulation” is possibly the most important feature of a cult.
Master Sha’s primary importance and significance are stressed in his work and reaffirmed by a follower after disciple. “The first thing I observed was that Master Sha was establishing a Jin Dan for the readers of this book,” one retreat participant said (see page 191). He began by summoning Mother Earth’s light. Then Master Sha summoned the light of Heaven. Heaven appeared to be opening. I saw the brilliant light of Heaven approaching… Master Sha then summoned the Tao light. Tao light appeared and surrounded the [Jing Qi Shen] of Mother Earth’s golden light and Heaven’s golden light.”
Sha appears to be not just heaven’s mouth, but also The Source’s chosen vessel and conveyance. He appears to be the driving force behind everything.
“What I personally witnessed was the change of fine individuals into competitive, deceitful, and nasty obsessive members who would do whatever to be exceptional and obtain Sha’s favor…even if that meant lying or slandering another student to obstruct or hinder their spiritual journey,” one critic observed.
