Synopsis of the Book
Mayan Mysteries is one of the few books about Mayan esoterism written by a qualified Adept of Initiatory Mysteries: Samael Aun Weor.
Mayan Mysteries takes us to the core of Mayan esoterism.
The central subject of the book deals with the esoteric explanation of a number of extraordinary stelas and artefacts found in the Mayan city of Copan, in modern Honduras (Central America).
Copan was one of the most important temple-cities established in the Mayan territory, and as with any other temple-city, its main purpose was esoteric instruction for those aspirants who wanted to pass from the sphere of ordinary human beings into the sphere of the ‘gods’ or Real Men.
What differentiates Copan from other Mayan cities is the sheer number of stelas (large monoliths) packed with figures and symbolic elements demonstrating the great artistry reached by Mayan sculptors — these stelas being true exponents of this marvellous Solar Culture that has graced our planet since time immemorial.
Throughout the book the author explains for the first time the mystic and esoteric content of each stela at Copan.
Mayan Mysteries is an essentially practical book in that many of its chapters contain esoteric practices geared towards those who are not merely contented with theories, but want to go to the core of the Mayan Mysteries, through the development of the inner faculties, the awakening of Consciousness and the direct contact with the Mayan Adepts of the Higher Worlds.
In this book, Samael Aun Weor combines the profound Mayan teachings with the science of the Inner Self-Realization of the Being, this being the true ultimate purpose of Gnosis.
