This is by far the best of the 7 or 8 books I have read on the subject.

If you already use the rites, you want this book so you can check your practice against the original teachings.

Rejuvenation is a huge topic. The problem is not that there aren't ways to rejuvenate
our bodyminds, but that one can get lost in the maze of the multifarious approaches.
This little book (107 pages including the Appendix) details the original, powerfully rejuvenative Tibetan Rites as described by Peter Kelder in the 1946 edition of Eye of Revelation. The book was significantly altered, and not necessarily for the better, in subsequent editions by Harbor Press and others. We owe a debt of gratitude to the editor Jerry Watts for making the original edition widely available, for his
editorial notes, including those detailing those differences between Eye of Revelation and later editions, and
for his pointers on making them even more user-friendly, such as his innovation of using
a "pushup stand" for the fourth Rite, which many find difficult in the beginning.

I would take issue with his caution against eating raw eggs (raw egg
yolks are advised in Kelder's book). I think there is more than enough evidence of the safety
of raw eggs; in fact I prefer raw eggs whole. If one eats
raw organic eggs from free-range chickens, the risk is infinitesimal and the nutritional benefits are great. Hopefully those comments will be modified in a later edition.

But overall, this is a fantastic contribution to the literature of the ancient, magical Rites, which apparently
do indeed act to synchronize the chakras and thus the glands. The chapters on Mantram Mind Magic, diet,
and voice exercises (including the simple yet powerfully effective chanting of "Aum") round out the book
to make it practically a total guide to rejuvenation.

If you are uncertain just what the Five Tibetan Rites are all about, this book is the place to begin. If you already use the rites, you want this book so you can check your practice against the original teachings. It may be that you will find details in this original work that are missing from the materials you've already studied, which take your practice up a notch.

Here is the long and short of it. Peter Kelder is the author (at least in name) of two versions of the rites. The earliest was produced in 1939, and that second came out in 1946. The later version expanded somewhat on the material in the 1939 release, which I'll elaborate on in a moment.

The latter version, from 1946, was apparently a very, very limited release. Jerry Watt, an antiquarian book dealer, has (perhaps) the only surviving original copy of that book, and it is the text of the 1946 edition he republishes here. The format has been updated and cleaned up, but he has left the text exactly in the original, typos, mistakes, and all, so that we get the unadulterated content of the original work.

He has also included sections with his own research and speculations on the identity of both Kelder and the enigmatic Col. Bradford, which may or may not turn out to be correct. However, these are merely to flesh out the book's background, and do not in any way add or detract from the effectiveness of the rites themselves. Since the release of The Eye, Mr. Watt has continued his historical research into Kelder and Bradford, and has reached some intriguing, if speculative new conclusions. I strongly encourage you to visit his site at (www jr-books com) to have a look at his research, both the new content as well as material that was not included in this present book.

Having read 'Ancient Secrets,' as well as the 1939 text of 'Eye of Revelation' this book comes as a welcome addition to my library. The original illustrations are present, and there is additional text describing the rites. There is also an additional chapter not in the 1939 text or in the 'Ancient Secrets' reprint. I am thrilled, and have already modified my performance of the second rite to conform to the description covered in this book. The conjectures by the author on Kelder and Colonel Bradford are thought provoking.

I have been doing these tibetan rites on and off for the last 17 years- as we journey through this life there are many things we seek. If you seek the path of rejuvenation-- this book will give you the vessel that you seek in so many different ways. Your mind and your spirit will grow as you cultivate these rites and pass them on to others. We will be doing our brothers and sister a favour in creating a meaningful life one that has little dis-ease but a very, very full life.
With these rites you will be able to do more than you can ask or imagine.
I always say try it - you have nothing to loose- give it a few months.
You may not see big improvements initially but will definitely see subtle improvements. Take the time you will be surely glad you did.

Jerry Watt is an antiquarian bookseller and collector who owns an original 1939 and 1946 edition of Peter Kelder's book "The Eye of Revelation." For the first time, we are able to read the unadulterated words of the author Peter Kelder. For those of us who are students and practitioners of the Five Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation, this is invaluable. Nothing beats the real thing and Jerry's book, is the real thing. Jerry has also scanned both books and made them available on a CD which you can obtain from his website - so there is no doubt of the authenticity of his book. All other books, including "The Five Tibetans" by Christopher Kilham and "the Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth" contain the same story, except the author/editor has added material and made modifications to the original.

I too have published a book (manual) and produced a DVD The Five Tibetans: An Expert Teacher's Insider Secrets Revealedon the Rites, but my perspective is from TEACHING people how to do the Rites. As a teacher of many thousands of students I discovered that some people do need modifications or adaptations to suit their individual needs or to protect themselves from strain or injury. Even Colonel Bradford the hero of the story, found it necessary to do the same thing - since there is no `one-size-fits-all body'.

As competitors Jerry and I have become trusted friends, as we attempt to lead people away from the spin doctors and their wild claims of miracles designed to entice you to buy their `copy' product - towards our two sources of honest and scholarly information and resources. Together, we provide Kelder's (Jerry's Book) original story, and my knowledge of teaching the Rites.
