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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›

A very special book. For the Tibetan Rites, get this book and no other.

Fantastic book! Short and to the point. I can't say I'm 20 years younger but it has definitely helped with some chronic back pain and subtle improvements in other areas.Published 10 months ago by Ian Beggs
