In this guide to the cosmology of ancient Egypt, Jeremy Naydler recreates the experience of living in another time and place. Temple of the Cosmos explores Egypt's sacred geography and mythology; but more importantly, it reveals with unprecedented clarity an ancient consciousness in tune with the rhythms of the earth. The ancient Egyptians experienced their gods not as remote beings but rather as psychic and natural forces, transpersonal energies that played a part in everyday life. This direct experience of the gods shaped the Egyptian concepts of human development, healing, magic, and the soul's journey through the Underworld as described in the Books of the Dead. While building on the pioneering efforts of R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz and others, Temple of the Cosmos is much more than a recapitulation of previous theories of Egyptian spirituality. Rather, this book breaks new ground by placing the work of other Egyptologists in an original, magical context. The result is a brilliant reimagining of the Egyptian worldview and its sacred path of spiritual unfolding.

From the Back Cover:

ANCIENT EGYPT / SPIRITUALITY

A valuable and original work and a major contribution to the understanding of ancient Egypt. Naydler is one of the few to shed new light on the old myths.
--John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky

An ambitious and lucid interpretation of ancient Egyptian consciousness, especially with respect to the experience of the sacred. As such the book illuminates the wild and mysterious psychospiritual currents of our present time, including the Goddess reemergence.
--Robert Masters, Ph.D., author of The Goddess Sekhmet

For the ancient Egyptian, the fabric of everyday life was sacred: the presence of the gods was keenly felt, time was interpenetrated by the transtemporal world of myth, and causation was essentially magical. In this groundbreaking new guide to the esoteric qualities hidden in the surfaces of ancient Egyptian life, Jeremy Naydler recreates the spiritual life of another time and place. Temple of the Cosmos is a profound exploration of an ancient consciousness more in tune with the rhythms of the earth, more open to the internal dimensions of time and space, less cut off from the sources of life. The author argues that the true source of Western civilization lies just beyond the horizon of Greek rationality and Judeo-Christian monotheism in the blazing light of Egyptian culture, and that we still have a good deal to learn from this ancient civilization. Building on the insights of scholars, and looking anew at the Books of the Dead, Naydler reinterprets the compelling imagery of the soul’s journey through the Underworld as a description of spiritual initiation and awakening.

JEREMY NAYDLER is a philosopher and cultural historian. He is a freelance lecturer at a variety of colleges and educational institutions, including the universities of Oxford, Reading, and Southampton, England.
