Teachings of a B’on Sorceress, The Ancient Powers – M.G. Hawking

Based on the archived field notes and journals of explorer M.G. Hawking’s five years in Nepal and Tibet, this remarkable book contains detailed narratives of Hawking’s experiences and conversations with Mani Choejor, a true B’on sorceress. To say that Mani is rare and exceptional would be to gravely understate the case. Born in Tibet, she was raised and mentored in an ancient B’on monastery by an Abbot known to be a B’on master of great power, one of perhaps two or three remaining teachers of the primeval esoteric arts of B’on magic, or ‘sorcery.’ This book discloses extensive, first-hand accounts of Mani’s demonstrations of psychokinetic powers and in-depth descriptions of her apprenticeship and the esoteric knowledge that allowed her to attain such extraordinary abilities.

For thousands of years Tibet has been a fabled land of mystery and magic. Isolated from the rest of the world by its topography and remote setting on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau—the highest in the world, with an average elevation of almost 15,000 feet—Tibet is home to the forgotten kingdom of Zhang Zhung, the ancient realm of the original pre-Buddhist B’on religion. According to their own histories, B’on was founded in 16,000 BC by the earliest known Buddha, Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche. Like Siddhārtha Gautama, our most recent historical Buddha, Shenrab renounced his life as a prince to become a monk, achieved enlightenment, and composed teachings that enable attainment of the highest knowledge and power.

This very rare form of esoteric B’on contains huge amounts of arcane and elemental magic, in keeping with its view of the cosmos as a unity, able to be manipulated in heightened states of awareness through clandestine techniques and practices. These profound esoteric teachings begin and end with a clear premise: “The Universe is but a mirage which exists in the mind, springs from it, is controlled by it, and sinks into it.”

For untold millenniums these teachings have been known only to a privileged few, extraordinary knowledge long concealed under the most intense secrecy. An incomparable book for anyone on a spiritual path or seeking greater knowledge and personal power. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page.
