While reading myths, Vedic sources, studying signs and symbols, and based on the Primordial Knowledge given in the books by Anastasia Novykh, I have noticed that some images frequently used in all these sources (despite the fact they are depicted and called differently) symbolize one and the same concept – the one that may be figuratively referred to as the Bridge. I wrote on this subject in my earlier article Chinvat. The Bridge over the Abyss, but for those who haven’t read it I should briefly explain: what is meant here is the symbolic Bridge-Passageway signifying the spiritual Knowledge that helps human personality pass from the material world into the spiritual world – the world of God. It may otherwise be said that “the Bridge is what helps human personality merge with the Soul”.

“Verily, the old prophecies are being fulfilled. The time of Shambhala has come. For centuries and centuries, it has been predicted that before the time of Shambhala, many wonderful events would occur, many terrible wars would take place, and Panchen Rinpoche would leave his abode in Tashi-Lhunpo in Tibet. Verily, the time of Shambhala has come. The Great War has devastated countries, many thrones have perished, earthquakes have destroyed the old temples of Japan and now our revered Ruler has left his country.
