Finding Shambhala: In The Valley of Supreme Masters

Finding Shambhala: In The Valley of Supreme Masters
Finding Shambhala: In The Valley of Supreme Masters

Journey into the world of a profound legend through this unprecedented first-hand account to explore a reality that for millenniums has remained concealed under layers of myth and secrecy. Rarely has the world been so enduringly fascinated by an ancient legend as it has with the historically ubiquitous stories of Shambhala, the fabled hidden sanctuary of highly enlightened sages and mystic masters.
Scholars relate that the scriptures of the 4000 year-old Zhang Zhung culture may be the earliest extant references to this mysterious realm, yet it is described in many ancient traditions; the pre-Buddhist B’on treaties, the Kalki lore, the Puranas, the texts of the Kalachakra Laghutantra (c. 500 BC), the even earlier Kalachakra Mulatantra (c. 900 BC), 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 mysterious world as Shambhala I lam-yig, B’on treaties as Olmolungring, Hindu histories as Aryavarth, and Chinese traditions as Hsi Tien.
In an esoteric treatise composed in the 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.
Years ago, on an extended trek into a closed and largely unexplored inner region of the vast Himalayan wilderness, in an isolated valley surrounded by towering ice peaks, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on a beautiful small village where he encountered extraordinary men and women, introduced to him as “masters” and “sages.” Our team at Wisdom Masters Press has worked to compose a series of books based on Hawking’s journals and field notes of his experiences in a remote area of the Himalayas. This was a complex project; during his sixty-two months in those regions, 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 cataloged and organized in a manner conducive to producing a series of books from such a rich treasury of material. It was a fascinating if formidable task, one which so often filled us with a deep sense of wonder and inspiration.
“The more developed the individual consciousness the more persistently it will seek its true source, like a child strayed from its parent, or a wanderer longing for home. If it is capable of patient study and meditation, it may find the ladder down which it came, and will climb back to its heights.” — Himalayan Master R.K. of Siddhalaya
This book, Finding Shambhala , is an anthology containing comprehensive accounts of Hawking’s various experiences and conversations, including first-hand narratives of the extraordinary powers and abilities he witnessed and in-depth descriptions of the esoteric knowledge that make such remarkable capabilities possible. 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 behind the ancient legends of Shambhala. 2017 Edition, Kindle e-reader page count 271 (estimated, actual count varies depending on the reading device used). A Kindle Unlimited book. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.

Enter the Light

Enter the Light
Enter the Light

New Release. “There is no true teacher who in practice does not believe in the existence of the higher self, or soul, or in the magic that acts on it through the pursuit of knowledge. There is no desire more natural than the desire for knowledge. Learning is the movement from darkness to light.” —M.G. Hawking
Composed from the journals of explorer Hawking’s five years in remote areas of the Himalayas, this book transports the reader into a legendary realm of light, a journey that leads to the discovery of the most refined and powerful knowledge possessed by the human race.
Many years ago, while trekking in an inner region of the vast frozen fortress of the Great Himalayan Range, Hawking chanced on an unexpected discovery. In a majestic valley surrounded by towering ice peaks he encountered a beautiful small village. In that community, called Siddhalaya by its residents, he had the privilege of meeting a number of truly extraordinary men and women. This encounter marked the beginning of sixty-two months Hawking spent in the Himalayan regions of Nepal and Tibet, during which time he kept detailed records of his experiences and conversations with these legendary sages and masters.
The team at Wisdom Masters Press, in association with Hawking, has worked diligently to compose a series of books based on his journals and field notes. This was a daunting assignment; he had accumulated over 14,000 pages of journal notes, along with another 4,500 pages of field notes, all of which had to be sorted and cataloged. Yet it was a fascinating if formidable task, one that could not have been accomplished without the assistance and encouragement of some of the extraordinary individuals Hawking met in the Himalayas, all of whom you will meet in the pages of our books.
From the Author: “The wisdom of the masters is powerful and profound, and one hopes it will bring great light into the lives of our readers, will offer them insight and guidance, will greatly expand their knowledge and power, will be validated by their experience, or, at the very least, will stimulate them to search further on their own. The philosophy expressed by the masters reflects as well the broader search of our culture at this particular stage of its development. The evolutionary viewpoints in this book reflect the emerging pattern of a seeking for our true place and direction in the Universe—a reawakening of a search begun by the original pre-Socratic philosophers, one that goes further back than even the roots of religion—the search for a true connection with our origins in the Cosmos that gave rise to us and within which we continue the creation our individual lives and the mass co-creation of the world we all share. There are no words adequate to express my respect for those remarkable sages who gave to me, an amateur, so lavishly of their time and knowledge. They appeared to be grateful to see their efforts aided by one who loves life and wisdom enough to permit him to share their wisdom, insights, dialogues, and highly elevated knowledge.” —M.G. Hawking
About this Book: This volume presents a comprehensive exploration of Hawking’s various experiences and conversations with the legendary sages of the Himalayas, including first-hand accounts of the extraordinary powers and abilities he witnessed, and in-depth descriptions of the esoteric knowledge that make such remarkable capabilities possible.
