Beasts, Men and Gods
by Dr. Ferdinand Ossendowski
An exciting real adventure into the dark heart of Asia in search of mysteries, the subterranean Kingdom of Agharti and the mystical King of the World., by the well-known Polish explorer Dr. F. Ossendowski.
“On my journey into Central Asia I came to know for the first time about ‘the Mystery of Mysteries,’ which I can call by no other name… The old people on the shore of the River Amyl related to me an ancient legend to the effect that a certain Mongolian tribe in their escape from the demands of Jenghiz Khan hid themselves in a subterranean country. Afterwards a Soyot from near the Lake of Nogan Kul showed me the smoking gate that serves as the entrance to the ‘Kingdom of Agharti.’ Through this gate a hunter formerly entered into the Kingdom and, after his return, began to relate what he had seen there. The Lamas cut out his tongue in order to prevent him from telling about the Mystery of Mysteries. When he arrived at old age, he came back to the entrance of this cave and disap¬peared into the subterranean kingdom, the memory of which had ornamented and lightened his nomad heart…”
