This book, “The Civilisations of Ancient Mexico”, from the writer Ernesto Baron, is a true anthropological and historical study that shows us the authentic feeling and knowledge of the peoples of Mexico. This is not a book like others but rather it transmits the ineffable wisdom of a great culture of wise peoples learned in many branches of knowledge, it is the fruit of a profound work of the author’s investigation, study and experience.
Throughout this book the author analyses and unveils to us the wisdom of great peoples who although today have been discredited and forgotten, were authentic solar pyramid-building civilisations that left a great knowledge and wisdom unsurpassed by our present culture. Its author fills our hearts with the light of knowledge which only the authentic serpentine cultures possesed and still today invites us to follow the path of Quetzalcoatl, the Plumed Serpent.
From the foundation of the great Tenochtitlan recorded in ancient legends and codices and the symbols that it contains, passing through Teotihuacan, the city of the Gods, with its pyramidal temples and the representation of its sacred gods, the author takes us on an extensive journey through the principal Mexican cultures, such as the Aztecs, Toltecs, Olmecs… in order to develop in the third part one of the greatest and enigmatic of these, the Mayans, owners of a powerful culture, their origins, cities, customs, rituals, gods, sacred books… and to conclude in the last section by going profoundly into the most spiritual and internal part, the great gods of ancient Mexico.
In short, it is a great book that makes us relive glorious epochs of ancestral peoples and to value their ancient culture and wisdom… And as the author says, “…while there is a world, the fame and glory of Mexico-Tenochtitlan will never cease.”
