In search of Lemuria
The lost continent of Lemuria, the land of Mu, is a place that history has nearly forgotten. Yet it lives on in the mythology of Hindus and Australian Aborigines, Polynesians and American Indians. Its place is likewise secure beside Atlantis in the metaphysical speculations of Occult pioneers Madame Blavatsky and Edgar Cayce, as well as New Age channelers and soothsayers. While Atlantis is well known, Lemuria has remained a subject only discussed in elite esoteric circles. But did Lemuria really exist? And if so when, and where was it located? Was it home to a gentle race of mystics and dreamers or an advanced society whose technology helped bring it down? And what happened to Lemuria in the end? Can an entire continent sink or vanish? The author's challenge is clear: to find if Lemuria and its lost civilization really existed. Yet during his search he embarks on a metaphysical journey as well, whose outcome is uncertain.
