I ordered this book from Amazon awhile back and was a used copy. The book had been dedicated to a Scott Singer, it read: “Con respeto, este sagrada informacion para Scott Singer. Hunbatz Men, 19/7/92. IN LAK’ECH”. I didn’t recognize the signature at first and just thought nothing of it. Then I had the feeling that it was Hunbatz Men who signed it and checked it again and yes it was his signature. I don’t know why this Scott guy would give up a book like this or maybe he’d lost it. But I like to think that this book came to me with good intentions and is imbued with sacred energy from the actual author who I have deep respect for and for what he is doing for my Mexican/Maya people as a Mayan leader and elder. Hunbatz Men lives in Merida, Yucatan Mexico and is a Shaman and teacher of traditional Mayan Wisdom and teachings handed down from generations of Mayan elders. He has committed his life to transmitting the sacred teachings that he holds to others who have an interest in these teachings. He truly believes that he can benefit modern man by helping him understand the wisdom that the teachings of the Mayans have to share with him. He offers a path of sacred wisdom teachings for the Mystery School student to follow to help draw them back into the higher consciousness of the universe, back into Cosmic Consciousness. IN LAK’ECH which Hunbatz Men wrote under his name is Nahuatl/Mayan for “I am you”. Also, it will show that the word Kundalini in Sanskrit, is Kulthanlilni in Mayan and it means the same thing! Mayan and Sanskrit have the same roots. There are many words in Mayan that are straight Sanskrit, no doubt! This subject is also a big part of my book that is still in the works. This book is awesome and I really recommend it because books like this you can’t find at Borders and Barnes. It was originally in Spanish but was translated later to English. There are enough pages to get a good preview of this book as well as a good amount of knowledge and info.
