The ancient Religion of the Sun has been one of the most powerful influencers on human history. It was practiced by a lost civilization tens of thousands of years ago, which influenced the major civilizations of the ancient world that venerated the sun. It gave rise to many of the world's most famous ancient sites and some of its most revered wisdom traditions.
This book is for anyone wishing to learn about the history of the ancient Religion of the Sun. It traces its origins by exploring some of the most ancient sacred texts and indigenous histories on Earth. It examines its reestablishment following the global flood at the end of the last ice age, as well as its founders, many of whom are remembered as the greatest spiritual figures and teachers in history. It also explores the lost civilization they helped initiate, from which the major civilizations of the ancient world arose, and our own civilization grew.
Throughout much of the ancient world the sun was used as the supreme symbol of divinity, megaliths and temples were aligned to the sun, and sun gods who traveled the oceans were seen as the founders of religions and civilization. In this book, ancient accounts from across the world are brought together to tell the story of our sacred past, not as a mythology, but based on real people and real events. It explains why common symbols, megaliths, religions, and mythologies can be found in so many disparate parts of the world, and why the sun was revered as the most prolific sacred symbol in history.
