This book takes a close look at what lies behind the many Egyptian gods and figures, with their fantastic crowns or strange animal-heads. The author sees them as archetypes, as expressive symbols for psychological principles in and around us, functions and structures of our own complex being.
Medhananda: "[…] Let us not take them [the Egyptian images] for what they appear to be. What seem to be objects, animals, gods, or kings, are all symbols for those yet unknown parts of ourselves we must meet and become acquainted with on the way to total self-awareness… …all these symbols and images are always ourselves or parts of ourselves."
Volume 2 of 5 on Ancient Egypt.
