Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Legend has it that hidden in the remote reaches of the Himalayan mountains lies a secret that would have saved Ponce de Leon from years of fruitless searching. There, generations of Tibetan monks have passed down a series of exercises with mystical, age-reversing properties. Known as the Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation or the Five Rites, these once-secret exercises are now available to Westerners in "Ancient Secret of the Fountain Of Youth. Peter Kelder's book begins with an account of his own introduction to the rites by way of Colonel Bradford, a mysterious retired British army officer who learned of the rites while journeying high up in the Himalayas. "Fountain of Youth then offers practical instructions for each of the five rites, which resemble yoga postures. Taking just minutes a day to perform, the benefits for practitioners have included increased energy, weight loss, better memory, new hair growth, pain relief, better digestion, and just feeling younger.

From the Back Cover

It's the late 1920s in colonial India. Driven by a seemingly irrational wish, an aging British Army officer embarks upon an adventure of discovery that leads to forbidden Tibet - an ancient land obscured by centuries of isolation; a land of wonder, where miraculous feats are a part of everyday life. There, in the shadows of the earth's tallest mountains, he stumbles on the hidden Shangri-La, a mysterious place without time where people age but somehow never grow old. So begins Peter Kelder's chronicle of Colonel Bradford, whose extraordinary adventure brings him back to the West years later at age 73, looking and acting like a man of 45! How did he accomplish this remarkable feat of rejuvenation? The secret, says Bradford, is a series of five ancient Tibetan exercises, which anyone can perform in a matter of minutes. These simple exercises - which he calls the Five Rites - restore youthful health and vitality by balancing and harmonizing invisible energy vortexes within the body. Originally written in the 1930s, Kelder's book was revived in 1985. Helped only by word-of-mouth, it soared in popularity, quickly becoming a number one international bestseller. This expanded and updated edition restores the book's final chapter, unseen in more than half a century.
