Explore the Esoteric Knowledge of the Great Himalayan Masters. For thousands of years, the largely inaccessible inner region of the Himalayan Range has been known in esoteric literature as the Great White Island, and has inspired countless stories and legends of the existence of a concealed sanctuary of wise and powerful masters. On an extended trek into a closed area of the Himalayas, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on a remarkable discovery. In an isolated valley surrounded by vast snowfields and towering ice peaks, he encountered a beautiful small village named “Siddhalaya.” It was explained to Hawking that, in Sanskrit, siddha denotes a high master or adept, and alaya means the abode of—for Siddhalaya was said to be the ‘Village of the Masters.’ In that remarkable community Hawking had the privilege of meeting extraordinary men and women—introduced to him as “masters” and “shamans”—possessed of knowledge and powers virtually unknown to the Western world. The material presented in this book is drawn directly from Hawking's sixty-two months of experiences and conversations with those remarkable individuals. As entertaining as it is richly enlightening, this is an incomparable exploration for anyone on a spiritual path or seeking greatly enlarged knowledge and personal power. An extraordinary book you will not forget. 2017 Edition. A Kindle Unlimited book. For more information, please see the Amazon description and ‘Look Inside’ feature. Thank you.
