The Ancient Path of the Sun by Mark Atwood, which I helped collaborate on, has just been re-released with a few updates made to it. These have added about 8 new pages to the book. The updates include new information and some corrections. You can find where to purchase the updated edition here.
New information includes:
- the meaning of the layout of the mounds of Europe, and their relationship to a symbol of the ancient world in a unique discovery
- further information on the alignments of the descending passage of the Great Pyramid, their meaning, and relationship to ancient Egyptians texts and rituals, as well as to European initiation rituals and mythology
- this has led to further identification of the pattern of initiation than existed in the ancient world, particularly in Egypt and Europe, and its connection to the equinoxes and constellations
- the renaming of Mark’s Sun Path Correlation Theory to the Sacred Sun Path Theory
- the alignments of the descending passage of the Great Pyramid (which are a bit complicated to explain here)
- the alignments of the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan (again, a bit complicated to explain, though it does not face the equinox sunset, but sunset on another important date in the Mayan calendar, while also incorporating another equinox alignment in conjunction with a nearby mountain peak)
- the alignment of the Khafre causeway at Giza (it doesn’t align to a cross quarter day as identified by Hancock and Bauval, but to another important nearby date in the ancient Egyptian calendar, as more recently stated by Bauval)
- the alignments of Nabta Playa in Egypt (again complicated to explain!)
So most of the corrections are to do with the alignments of some complex ancient sites; it took quite a bit of digging to find accurate information, since their alignments are not generally discussed.
Thank you again to all of you who have supported us while we have worked on this. A small shout out to Karim also, who submitted some helpful research on the mounds of Europe, particularly Newgrange, and their possible meaning.
Up to and during the time of the Autumn Equinox here in Australia my wife and I read the opening chapters of this latest edition. The new content is particularly inspiring and I feel like you are both only just getting started with such an enormous task of uncovering these mysteries. Aside from the amazing depth of anthropological research that has gone into this work, I find that the spiritual guidance imbued within it’s pages is something very special. Thank you so much for your continual dedication to this noble cause.
Thank you for your continued work on uncovering rich ancient knowledge of such profound nature. I have read the 4th edition prior the the update, and it is a truly worthwhile lecture.
Can’t wait to read about all the new details and discoveries made. More pieces to the puzzle coming together at a crucial time in our human history Thank you Lara and Mark and the Sakro Sawel team…
I hope that within the religion of the sun many will come to live its inner path described in this book.
In relation to the pyramid internal alignments. I happened to be following up on one of the references listed to an old 1883 book on this subject a few months back. I also found the alignment data there different to some other sources. Beyond not knowing which ones are correct it also made attempts to interpret their meaning more difficult.
Was the passage in the bedrock directed to the north celestial pole firstly to correctly align the structure as it was being constructed or for religious reasons? And (going by data in a diagram from Krupp ’84 in this case) is the northern shaft directed to Thuban? which might conveniently give clues to dating, or in fact towards the NCP in general?
There were other things I was also considering, but trying to follow it up proved quite confusing. So I think it’s great you made the effort to get to the most accurate readings and appreciate you adding clarity to some of these most fundamental questions of some of the greatest spiritual structures we have on our planet.
My package with The Ancient Path of the Sun has just arrived btw. : )
It’s wonderful to hear this, thank you for the update Lara.
This book has been an incredible inspiration for me and for many people that are interesting in these topics. It has put me in a beautiful journey, selecting information that has given me the boost and purpose to search more in my culture, and this focus has supported me internally.
I’m very interesting to read the new information and corrections you have added, ordering it ofcource, and hoping not to have any difficulties with it.
Thank you deeply Mark and Lara for all your work on this book, foe making it availiable, and thank you to everyone who supported you in these efforts.
More good news. Congratulations to you and Mark on this update.
It’s refreshing that you both keep looking into the facts and you don’t settle for “good enough” – you’re always looking for more information and to make what you do have more accurate. Like Bogdan, the new information on the Pyramids sounds especially interesting to me. I can’t wait to learn more about the Egyptian/European initiation rituals.
It is so wonderful to see that the true meanings of the Egyptian pyramids get revealed bit by bit and I am particularly thankful that more information has been added about them, in this new update. I consider ‘The Ancient Path of the Sun’ book to be the most profound and in-depth source of Spiritual knowledge about the Giza Pyramids that is available. So, reading that more knowledge about it is revealed is really fantastic.
I sense the Pyramids of Egypt hold and incredible source of knowledge and wisdom of very ancient times that can be uncovered not only through reading, but also through personal mystical experiences. The Giza Pyramids also hold so many secret keys in so many ways and it is really worth putting in the effort to try to uncover them. ‘The Ancient Path of the Sun’ book does such a great job in explaining some of these secrets.
This book is a must read for every spiritual seeker!
Wonderful to hear that this important book got some updates too, and what a beautiful adjustment of the cover colours, the druid really came alive! :-)
Great to hear the new edition is now available Lara. Although an additional 8 pages isn’t a big update in comparison to The Ancient Religion of the Sun, the topics you mentioned sound highiy informative and well worth reading.
I’m particularly keen on reading the part about the new discoveries on European mounds and their alignment and symbolism. I’ve been looking into British earth mounds and other sites, so it’s great to have further puzzle pieces falling into place.
I look forward to reading the updated edition and thank you and all involved again for your efforts.
Thank you, congratulations with your new books! The videos were also very interesting and well done, great to see you uncovering more and more pieces of the puzzle.
I will definitely look into these books, and look how to merge it with my understanding of ancient history and spirituality.
