Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts by Jeremy Naydler

Book Description

This emphasis on the funerary interpretation has served only to externalise what were actually experiences of the living, not the dead, king. In order to understand the character and significance of the extreme psychological states the pharaoh experienced - states often involving perilous encounters with alternate realities - we need to approach them as spiritual and religious phenomena that reveal the extraordinary possibilities of human consciousness. It is the shamanic spiritual tradition, argues Naydler, that is the undercurrent of the Pyramid Texts and that holds the key to understanding both the true nature of these experiences and the basis of ancient Egyptian mysticism.
