    Sakwala Chakraya -Stargate of Sri Lanka

    There seems to be a hypothasis that there might be a star gate in Sri Lanka.. This image is from a carving on one of the rock temples.

    Sakwala Chakraya

    Sakwala Chakraya
    (iii) Tisavewa Ruins.
    Upon the completion of the three groups of ruined buildings situated immediately east of Ruwanveli Dagaba excavations were transferred to a fresh locality, about a mile to the south-west of the Udamaluwa (Sacred Bo Tree enclosure), containing ruins of an entirely different character from any yet exploited.
    A ridge of granitic formation can easily be traced running on from the Vessagiri Rocks northwards, past Isuruminiya, below the bund of Tisavewa. Thence it crosses the Anuradhapura-Puttalam Road, and bisects the Mirisavetiya area and Basawakkulam tank; and trends ever north through the western portion ("Galge" and other rocks)+ of the Lankarama and Jetawanarama areas.
    The portion of the ridge just beyond the northern confines of Isurumuniya Rock Temple lies at the very foot of the embankment of the tank (Tisavewa), and is marked by a line of rocks of less magnitude than the Isurumuniya boulders.
    The rocks are mostly crowded together into two clusters (Y, Z), both resting upon the narrow ...leba.... ridge.
    The ..... ...... separate entity consist of caves, structural buildings, and three exceptionally fine pokunu formed of dressed stone, the whole belonging either to the Isurumuniya sangharamaya or to a sister monastery adjoining it. The ruins at this ancient site, though comparatively isolated did not escape considerable modification by later time additions, into which brick and mortar freely entered.
    Rocks Z.

    Behind the pansala, south-west, is the second line of boulders (Z), separated from the bathing-house and northern cluster of rocks (Y) by 10 yards of open space. These southerly boulders, four or five in all, are both more massive and taller than those of the other group. The most southerly exhibits rectangular grooves of some building which once crowned its summit; both faces of two boulders, overhanging west and east, were adapted as cave shelters.

    Text on this page extracted from an original copy of Annual Report.

    The photographs were taken when I visited the site in 1991, and again in November 1995.

    The site is unmarked and unknown to most tourist guides. Maybe it should remain that way until properly protected.

    Page 9

    Cave No 2 lies beneath the west face of the penultimate rock forming its back and roof and floor. It was entered by a few steps leading down from the rock ridge.
    A worn, and hardly recognizable asanaya of bricks rests against the rock at back. To the left (north) of this seat, or alter, is cut shallowly on the steeply projecting rock face a great chakra, or circle 6 ft in diameter, scored by rectangular divisions containing figures (mostly small circles), the whole girt, as a tyred wheel, by a band on which is displayed variant piscine and crustacean life swimming round from right to left.
    The centre of the chakra is filled by a large circle comprising seven concentric rings, within a square 1 ft 2 in., to which cross lines are drawn vertically and horizontally from the encircling hand, cutting the chakra into quadrants. Further, parallel lines divide the circles vertically into ten strips, or slices, varying in width from 3 in. to 9 in., but matching to left and right of the central vertical line.
    All strips but the outer two are bisected by the horizontal base line and subdivided into dual or quadripartite partitions The outermost strips, unbisected, contain a single small circle, quadrisected by cross lines, and a figure of phallic suggestion. In each of the penultimate divisions right and left is a tiny circle in line with the horizontal bisection of the chakra, but nothing else. In the third pair are shown four more quadrisected circles, two and two, one in each of the upper and lower partitions left and right. The fourth strip to right contains four more such circles, bigger, and each in a separate partition. But that to left has compressed its circles into a quadripartite panel below the horizontal base line; leaving the upper panel free for four distinct diagrams - second seven.ringed circle (differing only in size from its larger counterpart in the centre of the chakra), beneath which are two umbrella~like emblems, and a pinnated three.forked figure -the whole interwined by a fret. Each of the eight divisions of the fifth strips, which meet as one broad band, above and below the concentric ringed circle on either side of the central vertical line of the chakra holds one of the small circles with cross lines ; the two left upper partitions containing also a square and a wavy diagonal line. Outside all these divisions is the 4 in tyre or band bounding the chakra.

    This weird circular diagram, incised on the bare rock -even more unique in a way than the elephant bas-reliefs of Pokuna A-may with every show of reason claim to be an old-time cosmographical chart illustrating in naivest simplicity the Buddhistic notions of the universe.
    The concentric circles with their interspaces at the centre of the chakra can assuredly mean only the Sakvala, in the centre of which rises Maha Meru, surrounded by the seven seas (Sidanta) and walls of rock (Yugandhara, &c.) which shut in that fabulous mountain, l,680,000 miles in height, half below, half above, the ocean's surface. Sun and moon (in the second strips) lie on either side of the Sakvala : round about in space are scattered innumerable other worlds represented by quadrisected circles.* Below and around is the "world of waters" (i.e., the circular band) in which swarm gigantic uncouth denizens-fish, turtle, crab, chank, and other marine fauna. !
    This ancient "map of the world"-perhaps the oldest in existence is of quite extraordinary interest. Its presence here, within an eremite's cave at an out-of-the way nook of ancient Anuradhapura, testifies to the antiquity of that astronomical lore still pursued in some of the Buddhist monasteries of Ceylon.

    No inscriptions occur at any of the caves; nor have any been discovered anywhere among these ruins.


    *Still used as an astrological emblem for the earth.

  • How the Nag Hammadi scriptures were found

    The Gnostic Gospels

    The 52 texts discovered in Nag Hammadi, Egypt include 'secret' gospels poems and myths attributing to Jesus sayings and beliefs which are very different from the New Testament. Scholar Elaine Pagels explores these documents and their implications.

    From The Gnostic Gospels
    by Elaine Pagels
    Vintage Books, New York: 1979
    pp. xiii-xxiii

     In December 1945 an Arab peasant made an astonishing archeological discovery in Upper Egypt. Rumors obscured the circumstances of this find--perhaps because the discovery was accidental, and its sale on the black market illegal. For years even the identity of the discoverer remained unknown. One rumor held that he was a blood avenger; another, that he had made the find near the town of Naj 'Hammádì at the Jabal al-Tárif, a mountain honeycombed with more than 150 caves. Originally natural, some of these caves were cut and painted and used as grave sites as early as the sixth dynasty, some 4,300 years ago.

    Thirty years later the discoverer himself, Muhammad 'Alí al-Sammán; told what happened. Shortly before he and his brothers avenged their father's murder in a blood feud, they had saddled their camels and gone out to the Jabal to dig for sabakh, a soft soil they used to fertilize their crops. Digging around a massive boulder, they hit a red earthenware jar, almost a meter high. Muhammad 'Alí hesitated to break the jar, considering that a jinn, or spirit, might live inside. But realizing that it might also contain gold, he raised his mattock, smashed the jar, and discovered inside thirteen papyrus books, bound in leather. Returning to his home in al-Qasr, Muhammad 'All dumped the books and loose papyrus leaves on the straw piled on the ground next to the oven. Muhammad's mother, 'Umm-Ahmad, admits that she burned much of the papyrus in the oven along with the straw she used to kindle the fire.

  • Different levels of spiritual evolution
    Sometimes we tend to look at a person and ask ourselves, why can't they move beyond the level they are.? Why are they just keep on staying in that same spot for years? Can't they can work on their spiritual evolution more, it seems they have stopped somehow....? hmmmm

    There might be a reason for this. Of cause we might see them trapped in another ego illusion but they can get free if they wanted to, so why? It might be that they are done with their spiritual agreement for this life time. They might be just learning or acquiring merits so they can complete their evolution on another life time. This might be a strange thing to say at a time like this as there seems to be so many people and so many opportunities and also much energies coming to assist us with our evolution faster as the earth itself it moving up.

    In some cases with certain people it might not be the case. There are people who have agreements and abilities, this means mostly DNA capabilities in this life time. It seems some are here only to complete their soul level, this seems to consist majority of people. There are others who can go up to over soul level of their spiritual evolution in this life time. Then there are some who can go up to Avatar level, the amount of people that are on this stage seems to be lesser than over soul level. Also there are few who have come to complete their journey as Ascended masters.

    All levels of beings are around us working to complete what they came here to do and finish the work or to continue their evolution next life time. Recent events with someone close to me caused me to really look at a situation and realize why some people seems to be giving up on their work. The reason seems to be that they are done for this life and it's a matter of finishing whatever they have to finish and move on. This was sad thing to realize but we all have our own paths and destinations.

  • Be careful for what you ask, you might get it
    Be careful for what you ask, you might get it


    Some of us are still driven by ego and its demands. Every day, it has a list of things that it wants. Unfortunately for us, we think ego is who we are and its demands are what our desires and needs are. If we are not aware of this situation, every moment our mind manipulates our emotions and we crave for these desires. Our emotions and our minds are trapped in this false fantasy reality every second of the day and are never free till we get what we think we wants. Ego self if so cunning with its trickery, we become obsessed. We are so convinced that we cannot live without them, so we do anything and everything to achieve these needs, desires.

    This is the true for most of us, we live the life being tricked by ego and are working to fulfill its nefarious desires. When we believe these needs to be ours without really listening to our heart, our spirit, we give in to them. We go head over heels to convince ourselves and others around us that what we are after is the real thing and without them we cannot live. We have good excuses and reasons for why we need them and why we cannot live without them. And to us those reasons are true. So we pray to our guides, teams and God, asking to receive these needs.

    Surprisingly, sometimes we get what we asked for and then after sometimes, we realize what we so happily received was not what we really want. It might give us temporary pleasure, gratification and the ego seems to be happy that it got it but all that does not last for long. Ego probably is asking for more or something else meanwhile our heart is telling us what we got was not really aligned to our highest good and in fact what we got is hurting us and effecting our spiritual evolution.

    At this stage we slowly begin to realize why we got this when we asked for. It is because we needed to learn this lesson. We have been tricked by our mind, ego and its multitude of personalities. It has gotten us to crave for something that is hurting us and our spiritual journey. We might have given up things that we truly needed in order to get this superficial blahhh. Furthermore when we got this only we might have realized that this is not the real thing we needed, in fact if we listen carefully, we will know the reason why ego was using us to go after this.

    Now, what we need is to change our thinking and not let ego and its desires take over us which buffers true desires of the spirit. Now is the time we see through the veil of lies and become self realized of who we are. This is not an easy task, as there are so many desires of the flesh, desires to cover up the emptiness it feels and other ego fears that are covered up as things that needed achieving etc. All this is what ego throws at us convincing that without them we cannot live. It's a well fabricated fantasy that is being woven over our minds convincing us this is what we need. But these are ego desires, fears and they are the reason we are continually trapped in this cycle. If we can see through ego desires and embrace the spiritual path and listen to our spirit then we are free of these ego traps.

    Most times ego is so convincing, so we get trapped in its false fantasy of how the life should be and live our whole life trapped in a fantasy reality, trapped without knowing who we really are.

    So when we ask for something, we have to be really sure of what we ask, or we might get what we have asked for and then regret for asking it. Spirit has a sense of fun so it might give us what we have asked for and let us have the pleasure of learning the lesson we needed to learn in the first place.
