The Light in the Himalayas, Chronicles of Discovery

Discover the truth of a profound legend that has endured from the very dawn of civilization, a captivating revelation of the existence of a mysterious world hidden deep in the wilderness of the Great Himalayan Range.Years ago, on an extended trek into a closed and largely unexplored inner region of the majestic frozen fortress of the Himalayas, in an isolated valley surrounded by vast snow fields and towering ice peaks, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on a beautiful small village where he encountered remarkable men and women, introduced to him as "masters" and "adepts."This chronicle, The Light in the Himalayas, contains detailed narratives of Hawking's experiences, including first-hand accounts of the psychokinetic abilities he witnessed and in-depth descriptions of his discussions with the masters and sages he met, revealing the esoteric knowledge that made such extraordinary abilities possible.Scholars relate that the first mention of this fabled realm appears in the scriptures of the pre-Tibetan Zhang Zhung culture which arose some 4000 years ago on the remote Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Compelling references continue through the millennia in numerous esoteric texts: the sacred B'on treaties, manuscripts of the Kalki lore, the Puranas, the earliest texts of the Kalachakra Laghutantra (c. 500 B.C.), in the even older Kalachakra Mulatantra (c. 900 B.C.), and in the ancient wisdom traditions of civilizations throughout the Himalayan regions of Asia and beyond.The Zhang Zhung and Tibetan scriptures refer to the mysterious world as Shambhala I lam-yig, B'on treaties as Olmolungring, Hindu histories as Aryavarth, Chinese as Hsi Tien, and Russian traditions as Belovoyde.In an esoteric treatise composed in the early 1500s by Ensapa Lobsang Dondrup, the Third Panchen Lama describes his remarkable visit to a land of wise masters hidden deep in the Himalayas. A rare manuscript written in 1592 by Antonio Monserrate, a Spanish missionary to the court of the Mughal emperor Akbar, speaks of his experiences in a remote valley in the high mountains where great sages reside. A remarkably similar account is found as recently as the late 1700s, written by the esteemed Sixth Panchen Lama, Lobsang Palden Yeshe.From the Publisher: Our team at Wisdom Masters Press has worked diligently to compose a series of books based on the records explorer M.G. Hawking kept during his five years in remote regions of the Himalayas. This was a complex assignment; Hawking accumulated over 14,000 pages of hand-written journal notes, along with another 4,500 pages of field notes, all of which had to be sorted, cataloged, and organized in a manner conducive to producing books from such a treasury of material. Yet it was a fascinating if formidable task, one which so often filled us with a deep sense of wonder and inspiration.As entertaining as it is enlightening, this is a truly incomparable anthology for anyone interested in greatly expanding their knowledge and personal power, and notably fascinating for anyone interested in exploring the realities underlying the ancient accounts of a legendary world of light in the Himalayan wilderness.For more information, please see the 'Look Inside' feature on this page.
