SOUL OF ANCIENT EGYPT: Restoring the Spiritual Engine of the World
Robert Bauval and Ahmed Osman Imagine the paradise of ancient Egypt: a lush, green valley with a gentle river, full of animals and birds of all sizes. Centered on careful observations of the natural rhythms of their environment, particularly the Nile, this enlightened civilization lived in a state of spiritual balance and harmony they called living in Maat. For the past 2,000 years, Egypt has experienced many occupations by hostile forces bent on taking control of this magical land. The authors examine each phase of Egyptian history from its origins and the Pharaonic period, through the Roman conquest and its Christianization, to the Pan-Arabization of Nasser, and the ongoing Islamization that began with the Muslim caliphate in the 7th century. They show how the current Islamic rulers are actively working to eradicate all traces of Egypts spiritual roots, the source of the Western Mystery tradition. They provide a revised portrait of the life of Muhammad, revealing his connections to the Essene tradition, and explain how most Sharia Law is not based on the Koran. The authors sound the call for a return to the original tenets of Egyptian civilization. 6X9 P/B, 288 pp., 50 B&W Illus.
