In The Valley of Supreme Masters, A Chronicle of Power

Journey into a fabled hidden world deep in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal to experience a series of remarkable adventures and discover the powerful esoteric knowledge that existed several thousand years prior to the arrival of Buddhism. Cradling the most isolated area of Earth’s landmass, through the ages the remote inner region of Nepal’s Great Himalayan Range has inspired countless legends of a hidden sanctuary of great masters possessed of all-encompassing knowledge. Although arising from sources greatly separated both geographically and chronologically, the legends are remarkably consistent. The scriptures of the 4000 year-old Zhang Zhung culture are thought to be the earliest extant references, yet the same hidden realm is represented in many ancient traditions; the pre-Buddhist B’on treaties of Nepal, texts of the Kalki lore, the Puranas, and in the even more ancient Kalachakra Mulatantra (c. 900 BC). The B’on treaties refer to the hidden sanctuary as Olmolungring, Hindu histories as Aryavarth, Chinese as Hsi Tien, and Russian traditions as Belovoyde. On an extended trek in a remote area of Nepal’s vast Himalayan wilderness, explorer M.G. Hawking chanced on an unexpected find. In a valley surrounded by towering ice peaks he came upon a small village where he encountered remarkable men and women—introduced to him as “masters” and “adepts”—possessed of knowledge and powers virtually unknown to the Western world. The accounts presented in this book are transcribed from Hawking’s journals and field notes of his experiences and conversations with the masters he encountered, revealing their explanations of the true psycho-physical unity of “reality,” the essential powers and principles of consciousness, and the specific practices that convey extraordinary abilities of perception and power. Although this knowledge is not generally understood in the Western world, we are fortunate in modern times that it has found compelling support as elegant discoveries have emerged from breakthroughs in physics: “As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clear-headed science, to the study of matter, I can tell you as a result of my research this much: There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of the existence of consciousness. The mind is the matrix of all matter.” —Max Planck, Nobel Laureate “Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” —Niels Bohr, Nobel Laureate “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” —Albert Einstein, Nobel Laureate “Consciousness cannot be accounted for in physical terms, for consciousness is absolutely fundamental. Quantum physics reveals a basic oneness of the universe. Multiplicity is only apparent; in truth, there is only one mind.” —Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel Laureate As a physicist at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider told us: “It’s as if we’ve been climbing a mountain for years, only to find, on reaching the summit, a group of mystics who for centuries have been waiting patiently for us to arrive.” While it’s possible to read this book as a collection of adventures and transcendent experiences, a deeper reading reveals it to be a fiercely felt account of a spiritual journey, an exploration of the true nature of reality, and an in-depth account of the vast powers by which masters manipulate reality to produce what seem to be miracles. Magical, enlightening, and richly entertaining, this narrative will stay with you forever. A truly incomparable book for anyone on a spiritual path or seeking greater knowledge and personal power.
