2.0 out of 5 stars Bad rendition as a Kindle doc, September 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Secret of the Andes And The Golden Sun Disc of MU (Kindle Edition)
Whatever process Amazon used to put this text into Kindle format should be avoided. It looks like an OCR (character recognition) translation. There are many jumbled characters in the text that you run into. There also appear to be page number appears just as numbers floating in the middle of the text. These flaws, which appear to not have undergone sufficient editing, really make Amazon look bad. I cannot recommend this translation in it's current form. Speaking of Kindle misfires, Amazon also needs to get color into this book too Sound: Native Teachings and Visionary Art of Joseph Rael)

Now for the actual content of the book, I cannot remotely believe this is an attempt at fact. The Sacred or Great White Brotherhood is not going to run monastic lifestyles. There is much of a Christian slant to this GWB that it's just not logical. If you accept the higher focus of the Christ teachings, and give possibility that Issa was a real person, AND that Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute (as the church later twisted) but really his mate, lover, wife, co-teacher (see the work of Tom Kenyon for these teachings), the it makes absolutely NO sense that the Christ teachings would require monastic lifestyle whatever. If there is any advanced spiritual teaching it deals directly with integration of polarities. It does not lead to what we clearly know as some of the blatant flaws in the monastic twisting of spiritual teachings. Suppressed sexual expression will come out in forms that often prey on those who can do least about it.

There are many, many other reasons to not believe what is in this book. The author clearly was in or around Peru based on many of the things he says. Secret sacred brotherhoods and the like, may sell books, but in reality such things do not last the test of time. Just for the fact that they would be largely unknown once the founding generation ages and dies any such 'brother'hood (that is a gender-prejudicial phrase) becomes extinct.

Apart from the previous points (and there are many more), the book ends up just being boring. I do not hear the voice of an expert in this matter. You can quote Lord such and such as much as you want. The test of any authentic wisdom is put into words like this 'Does it grow corn'? In this book I hear alot of I know this and such. But I do not hear real wisdom from telling tales of Earth's supposed history on how some brotherhood is going to help us out.

If you want real wisdom of the Andes there are two sources that are worth your time:
Gate of Paradise: Secrets of Andean Shamanism
Andean Awakening: An Inca Guide to Mystical Peru
