I have been waiting for several years to tell you about the RingingÂ Cedars of Russion series, written by Vladimir Megre about his involvment with an amazing woman, Anastasia, who livesÂ among the ringing cedars in Siberia. Now that most of the series has been translated and is available inÂ English, I want to introduce these important works to you.
The centuries and millennia have passed as is the natural way of things. Great civilizations have arisen, prospered and disappeared leaving after themselves only the basic ruins of ancient settlements. In their wake lay only the merest fragments and splinters of their existence. Ritual burials become the anthropologist’s most important evaluation tool. Everything these civilizations hoped to leave for descendants is really only revealed only in the external forms of what is left behind. The Egyptian and Mayan pyramids, the figures of the Nasca and Stonehenge, are all really only imprecise, visual images. Is this truly everything that remains for us from our far-off ancestors?
There is an undeniable sense of evidence derived from the existence of the remains of civilizations past. The question is whether this matter can have spiritual sense as well. Can it carry not only material traces which have come to us from extreme antiquity, but also the immense spiritual experience accumulated during the lifetime of each whole civilization?
Modern historians put forward a hypothesis that 5 to 10 thousand years ago there was a great Vedic civilization prospering and flourishing all over the Earth. The great spiritual texts of the Vedas make up but one part of its spiritual heritage. There are very, very few material traces of its existence and it is one of the riddles which scientists cannot yet solve. There is a hypothesis that Dolmens, are one of few material traces of this Vedic civilization which have reached into the present time.
Hundreds of thousands Dolmens are scattered all over the world. They exist in Germany, France, Spain, England, Holland, Switzerland, Israel, Netherlands, Indi , and Korea, as well as in the widespread regions of Russia .
From Wikipedia (online Encyclopedia): Dolmens (also known as cromlechs, antas, HÃ¼nengrÃ¤ber, Hunebedden, quoits, and portal Dolmens) are a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb, usually consisting of three or more upright stones (megaliths) supporting a large flat horizontal capstone (table). Most date from the early Neolithic period in Britain (4000 BC to 3000 BC).
Scientists still do not agree on the purpose of these megalithic structures. Until the present, they have not disclosed their secret. The most widespread hypotheses are as follows.
- Ritual facilities – altars of druids
- Prehistoric Tombs
- Astronomical facilities
Dolmens are found in South of Russia and in the Northern Caucasus as well as many along the coast of the Black sea. Here they are found in the most architecturally completed form, consisting of five or six stone plates and look like closed stone boxes. Imagine four plates put vertically to form the four walls of an enclosure. A fifth lays horizontally as a rooftop and a sixth plate makes the base. As a rule there is an aperture in a forward cross-section plate, most often round. They may, however, have a triangular or square opening sometimes with a stone fuse. Plates are connected in a groove, backlashes are practically absent. Lateral walls and a roof can be created as a ledge, forming a portal. They also can be inclined. For many years they were treated as historical megalithic structures, quite often they were destroyed, stones being used for construction purposes. It was this way before the year 1997 when Vladimir Megre’s second book of The Ringing Cedars of Russia series was publishedâ€¦
Here is a brief history of advent of the Ringing Cedars phenomenon.
In the year 1995, Russian businessman Vladimir Megre was on a trading expedition on Siberian rivers where he meets with Anastasia, a young woman living as a hermit. Her home is in the remote Siberian cedar woods or Taiga . This encounter transforms him so deeply that he abandons his commercial plans. Penniless and completely enraptured by his experience he goes to Moscow to fulfill Anastasia’s request that he write a book about the spiritual insights she has shared with him.
Anastasia promised Vladimir the nine books he would write would become the most significant works in Russian literature, would reform the world and would make him globally famous. However improbable that prospect, Vladimir, reduced to bitter poverty, began writing. People were helping him on his way and less than a year later his first book, Anastasia, was ready. No publisher would take it, but director of one of Moscow ‘s printing businesses published 2,000 copies at his own expense and handed them over to Vladimir for distribution. So it was in 1996 that Vladimir Megre found himself standing by a metro station in downtown Moscow with books in his hands, trying to sell them to passers by.
What followed was as miraculous as his experiences in the taiga with Anastasia: the first 2,000 copies were sold out in a matter of days. Amazingly, one copy of this first printing even made it to the U.S. Library of Congress permanent archives. Subsequent printings of 2,000, 10,000 and 10,000 more copies were made. Again, all were sold out in a matter of months. Then, as if the book had a life of its own, millions more were printed and sold. By 1999 Vladimir Megre was Russia ‘s most read author. His eight books published to date (December 2006) have sold over 10 million copies in Russian alone! This impressive figure does not include electronic copies of the books. Translations in 20 languages followed and are a tremendous success in Germany and several East European countries.
Publication of Vladimir Megre’s books is bringing about massive changes of Russia ‘s ideological, social, political, and economic landscapes. The Ringing Cedars’ effect is pronounced both in thought, word and action throughout the country. Anastasia predicted in the very first volume that millions of people would be moved by her words. Many thousands would write poetry, songs and make paintings, inspired solely by the book. One would be hardly pressed to find another book in all human history that could inspire so many people in so little time! Readers’ clubs proliferate throughout Russia and abroad. Numerous readers’ conferences have taken place in Russia and throughout Europe. People are inspired to ask questions they never would have posed before. Hundreds of people left their well-paid jobs in large cities and despite all difficulties moved to eco-villages that have sprouted all over the country. Russian emigrants to Germany , U.S.A. and Canada charged back to Russia and established their family estates on their ancestors’ land. Readers’ web-site (http://www.anastasia.ru) popularity rivals that of the book in popularity. Search engine results show it has became one of the top-20 most visited web-sites in Russia . It is rapidly becoming the most significant clearing house of information on environmentally and spiritually responsible living. Dr.Viktor Medikov, member of Russian Parliament, published a book â€œPutin, Megre, and Russia ‘s future,â€ stating that Ringing Cedars become the new national idea that will shape the country’s future.
The Dolmens Speak:
“Incredible and marvelous seem Dolmens to you . There was a necessity for thatâ€¦ There was a deep meaning to it. For our minds were free in many waysâ€¦ and had determined with ease, the solution to our plea on how for a soul to remain here on the Earth. And furthermore, not just float in the air, but to have a home , a place where people could come toâ€¦ may it be even after millennia, our darling loved ones , children of the Kin â€¦ The idea appeared to prove itself true our Dolmens stand till nowadaysâ€¦ and waiting for you, dear ones â€¦ for YOU!!!
We bow to you to the ground! We are united! We have always been and awakening comes by united Kinâ€¦ Words of one person uttered with feeling, will awaken others â€¦”
How to work with photographs of Dolmens:
Photos accessible here – http://www.spaceoflove.com/dolm_gal.htm
Take some time during the course of day when you can spend 20 – 30 minutes for yourself. It is better in the morning, right after awakening to prepare your spirit for the day, or evening, when you have time to think, to comprehend what’s happening, to dream about the future. So take your time and look carefully through he photos of the Dolmens. Choose one of them that appeals to you. Define precisely your problem, your purpose, the question most important for you at the moment that you wish to know, what you want to ask Dolmen about. State what you wish to change in yourself, in your life.
Greet the Spirit of the Dolmen. Close your eyes, visualize the image of chosen Dolmen in your mind. While keeping silence inside, not being distracted by extraneous thoughts, ask the question, ask the Dolmen to help you with the decision. (15-20 minutes). Having asked your question, listen inside yourself for the answer. It may seem absurd, but it will sure to come. It is better to write the answer down on a piece of paper for later understanding, to realize, to comprehend it. Having finished your work, give thanks to the Dolmen, say goodbye to it.
There is one indispensable condition when working with Dolmens â€“ pureness of thoughts, aspirations. I wish all the best to you on your path. I am wishing Light and Love.
