First English translation of the book that introduced the realm of Hollow Earth
• Explores the underground world of Agarttha, sometimes known as Shambhala, a realm that is spiritually and technologically advanced beyond our modern culture
• One of the most influential works of 19th-century occultism
• Written by the philosopher who influenced Papus, Rene Guénon, and Rudolf Steiner
The underground realm of Agarttha was first introduced to the Western world in 1886 by the French esoteric philosopher Alexandre Saint-Yves d’Alveydre with his book Mission de l’Inde, translated here for the first time into English. Saint-Yves’s book maintained that deep below the Himalayas were enormous underground cities, which were under the rule of a sovereign pontiff known as the Brahâtma. Throughout history, the “unknown superiors” cited by secret societies were believed to be emissaries from this realm who had moved underground at the onset of the Kali-Yuga, the Iron Age.
Ruled in accordance with the highest principles, the kingdom of Agarttha, sometimes known as Shambhala, represents a world that is far advanced beyond our modern culture, both technologically and spiritually. The inhabitants possess amazing skills their above ground counterparts have long since forgotten. In addition, Agarttha is home to huge libraries of books engraved in stone, enshrining the collective knowledge of humanity from its remotest origins. Saint-Yves explained that the secret world of Agarttha, and all its wisdom and wealth, would be made available for humanity when Christianity and all other known religions of the world began truly honoring their own sacred teachings.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I feel obliged to contribute a review here because some poor reviews have come in from people ignorant of the book's subject. This is an able translation of the lost, rare esoteric classic _Mission de l'Inde_, famously cited by Rene Guenon in The King of the World. The introduction by Joscelyn Godwin is an erudite and sober study, and the rest of the secret book is an unbelievable thrill ride. This is a good edition for your bookshelf and deserves better reviews here on Amazon.
IF you are interested in the subject of "Hollow Earth"...the Admiral Richard E. Byrd Diary, and other such materials and subject matter, this book will add to that subject matter, and you will find it of interest.
There are other volumes that I personally liked better, but this book is okay, if you want another volume and another point of view on this subject.
Interesting political scenario. Not what I expected. A fun read. Not an easy read.
