Free on Amazon May 23rd and 24th. Discover the Unknown Kingdom. You are invited to take an unprecedented journey into a fabled world to explore ancient knowledge virtually unknown to the modern world. Sweeping in an immense arc across South Asia is the Great Himalayan Range, an uninterrupted 1,500 mile crescent of mountains with over 110 peaks rising to elevations of 25,000 feet or more. Extending from Kashmir’s 26,600 foot Naga Parbat through Tibet’s 25,445 foot Namcha Barwa, the vast frozen fortress of the Himalaya cradles the most isolated areas of Earth’s landmass. Yawning gorges as deep as 16,000 feet and ice peaks towering over five miles high shelter remote, lushly forested valleys.
For thousands of years, the largely inaccessible inner portion of this wilderness has been known in esoteric literature as the Great White Island, and has inspired countless stories and legends that it conceals a kingdom of great masters possessed of transcendent wisdom and power.
Years ago, on an extended trek into the remote inner range of the Himalaya, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on a small valley deep in the wilderness. Surrounded by towering ice peaks, he encountered a beautiful village, a mysterious realm referred to by its residents as Siddhalaya. Siddha, in Sanskrit, denotes a high adept or master; alaya means the abode of—for Siddhalaya is said to be the ‘Kingdom of the Masters.’
Hawking’s discovery marked the beginning of a series of extraordinary encounters and experiences. In that isolated community he had the privilege of meeting a number of remarkable men and women—introduced to him as ‘masters’ and ‘sages’—possessed of wisdom, knowledge and power virtually unknown in the Western world.
Transcribed directly from the journals and field notes Hawking recorded of his encounters with these sages, this book contains detailed narratives of his experiences and conversations, providing detailed, first-hand accounts of their esoteric knowledge and power. As entertaining as it is enlightening, this is an incomparable read for anyone on a spiritual path or seeking expanded knowledge and personal power. A Kindle Unlimited Book, e-reader page count 320.
