Overview

“Face to face with the schism caused by rational and scientific thought, Carlos Barrios undertakes an authentic and passionate search, bringing us close to the Cosmovision of one of the most ancient and wise people of our continent.”
— Nobel Laureate Ernesto Sabato

James Redfield’s The Celestine Prophecy and the writings of Nostradamus meet Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements and the work of Carolyn Myss (Anatomy of the Spirit, Sacred Contracts) in The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012. A contemporary Mayan Priest and Shaman reveals the genius of the ancient Mayan calendar and its accompanying horoscope, and examines in depth the ancient 2012 prophecy that many believe will forever change the world as we know it. The Book of Destiny is the most complete and authentic book on the secrets of the ancient Mayan culture and what it means for readers today.

Editorial Reviews

For most of us, December 21, 2012, is just a featureless niche in our futures; however, for an ever-growing number of adherents, this date marks the beginning of an epoch or perhaps even the advent of the apocalypse. According to some New Age authorities, the end of the ancient Mayan calendar cycle on this date will bring with it a cosmic shift in consciousness and changes that will affect everyone on earth. Carlos Barrios's The Book of Destiny describes this emergent paradigm from the perspective of a Mayan priest steeped in traditional teachings.

As someone who has always had an interest in ancient history, anthropology, spirituality, etc., this book has nearly satiated my desire for researching cultural traditions and origins of humanity that coincide with several other cultural beliefs/legends and scientific theories about our current situations and what is expected to occur before, during, and after 2012. As an avid reader and researcher, I still anticipate reading more on this topic from other references that I find as well, but it will be VERY difficult to top this book.

A good view from a Mayan priest. It gives more insight the religious ways of the Mayan people. The book goes into more detail of the Maya calanders that I was not able to find in other articles or books.
