2. Sunset in the East

According to the Eastern traditions, we are in the Kali Yuga, the Dark Age, the time of conflicts. We meet author Alain DaniƩlou (Gods and Myths of India; Shiva and Dionysus), who helped the West discover ancient texts and prophesies through his expert translations of Sanskrit. We learn in the East death is not seen as an end, but an alchemical process from which light is distilled. Cremation, called "Swargardhar" is known as the doorway to heaven. The dark goddess of Calcutta is Kali, who in creation is the creative force, while in dissolution, the destructive force. In Tibet we learn of Buddhism, and how each of us is responsible for his or her own destiny, how the king of mythical Shambala will one day fight against all negative forces; that monks practice the art of debating, which prepares them for the Shambala war, and how the present Dalai Lama has held the Kalachakra ceremony, which prepare people for the end of time, in western countries. Finally, we learn of Padmasambhava, who introduced Buddhism into Tibet, and of Lama Khamtul Rinpoche, who lives on the slopes of the Himalayas. 07/10DE SCA 60 min.
