Explore the most profound of all ancient legends, two deeply intriguing mysteries that have fascinated and inspired millions since the dawn of civilization.
Ancient history is the hazy vestiges of memory; far more of the secrets underlying the mysteries of the past have been lost than preserved. Even the earliest accounts of history were composed long after certain truths had lapsed from human memory, or were considered secrets too powerful—or too sacred—to be revealed. Yet legends inevitably arose in which fragments of those truths were preserved.
Cradling the most isolated area of Earth’s landmass, for thousands of years the inner portion of the Great Himalayan Range has inspired countless legends of a hidden sanctuary of great masters possessed of all-encompassing knowledge. Although arising from sources greatly separated both geographically and chronologically, the legends are remarkably consistent. The 4000 year-old scriptures of the pre-Tibetan Zhang Zhung culture are thought to be the earliest extant references, yet the same hidden realm is represented in many ancient traditions: the pre-Buddhist B’on treaties, texts of the Kalki lore, the Puranas, and in the even more ancient Kalachakra Mulatantra.
The Zhang Zhung scriptures refer to the hidden sanctuary as Shambhala I lam-yig, B’on treaties as Olmolungring, Hindu histories as Aryavarth, Chinese as Hsi Tien, and Russian traditions as Belovoyde. Absent an ember, there can be no smoke; there is a kernel of truth in all such ancient and enduring legends, and they cannot be easily, or wisely, dismissed.
If this mysterious hidden realm still exists, who resides there? Why do they stay so carefully concealed? What knowledge do they possess? If encountered, what would they want us to know?
Over ten-thousand years ago there appeared on the banks of the Nile, as if suddenly descended upon the sands, the first great civilization of known history. No one knows from whence the early Egyptians came, yet no people, ancient or modern, have conceived of building a civilization on a scale so sublime, so great, so grandiose, as the Ancient Egyptians.
Their technology of architecture, agriculture, metallurgy, and engineering; the invention of glass and linen, of paper and ink, of the calendar and the clock, of geometry and the alphabet; the excellence and sublimity of sculpture and the arts; the refinement of society and life; the remarkable development of orderly and peaceful government, of education; the advancement of writing and literature, of science and medicine; the first clear formulation known to us of individual and public conscience, the first cry for social justice, the first widespread monogamy, the first monotheism . . . all elevated to a degree of superiority and power that has seldom, if ever, been reached since.
How were these monumental accomplishments achieved? How did a small stone-age culture suddenly rise to create one of the greatest civilizations of all history? Where did the Ancient Egyptians’ extraordinary knowledge, power and sophistication come from?
