A mandala is a circular design composed of symbols that convey a universal meaning. It is my discovery that the constellations in the night sky form a giant mandala, the work of unknown people in ancient times.
The original designers left us a key using astrology to unlock the hidden meaning of 36 constellations known to the ancient world. This key then places the 36 and their Greek star myths into a sequence. Read in this way, the symbolic language of the myths tells the story of a process of spiritual growth and development called the Path of Initiation.
As shown in the stars, the Path is about spiritual transformation and a developing creativity used for the betterment of humanity. Along the way, the book introduces you to some of the newer concepts and techniques used today in the teaching of the Path.
It is illustrated with many beautiful pictures from hand-painted, antique star maps showing the constellations as figures from Greek mythology.
For those unfamiliar with the Path of Initiation, the constellations or astrology, all that is needed is an enjoyment of Greek myth and symbolism and an interest in spiritual things. Those with an understanding of the Path will want to see how the star myths tell the story of the Path from beginning to end??"a panoramic picture not yet found in the literature of today.
