From the earliest days of Earth’s civilization there has endured an extraordinary legend of a hidden society of “celestial” beings living in an inaccessible region of the vast wilderness of the Himalayas. The ancient pre-Buddhist B’on treaties are thought to be the earliest extant references, yet the same concealed realm is represented in many ancient traditions: The texts of the Kalki mythology, the Puranas, in the earliest texts of the Kalachakra Laghutantra, in the even more ancient Kalachakra Mulatantra, and in ancient wisdom traditions from the world over.
In an esoteric treatise composed by an early Tibetan Buddhist, the Third Panchen Lama, Ensapa Lobsang Döndrup, he revealed that he had been gifted a visit to the hidden realm, and referred to the enlightened beings he met there as ‘Ri-iha-mo.’ A similar experience is found as recently as the 1700s in the Shambhala I lam-yig Sutra, written by the esteemed Sixth Panchen Lama, Lobsang Palden Yeshe.
In this unprecedented account, explorer M.G. Hawking, while deep in the Himalayas, describes three encounters that he and his companions experienced with those fabled ‘Ri-iha-mo,’ revealing far-reaching revelations that for long millenniums have remained concealed under the most intense silence. Thought provoking and richly enlightening, you’ll think about this book long after the last words have been read. Kindle edition page count (estimated) 238.
