This book explores the compelling reality underlying historical traditions that have endured from the very threshold of history to the present day, the powerful accounts of a ‘Secret World’ concealed deep in the immense wilderness of the Great Himalayan Range.
Years ago, on an extended trek into a closed and largely unexplored inner region of the Himalayas, in an isolated valley surrounded by vast snow fields and towering ice peaks, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on a small village where he encountered remarkable men and women, openly introduced to him as masters, adepts, and sages.
This anthology, The Secret World, 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 extraordinary people he met, revealing the esoteric knowledge that made such extraordinary abilities possible.
Scholars relate that the first extant mention of this now legendary secret world appears in the scriptures of the pre-Tibetan Zhang Zhung culture which arose some 4000 years ago on the remote Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. Comprehensive 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 secret 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 Döndrup, 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 sixty-two months in remote regions of the Himalayas and the highlands of Tibet. 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 rich treasury of material. Yet it was a fascinating if demanding task, one which so often filled us with a deep sense of wonder and inspiration.
A truly incomparable book 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 secret world in the Himalayan wilderness. A Kindle Unlimited Book. 2017 Edition, Kindle e-reader page count 260 (estimated, actual count varies depending on the reading device used). For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.
