Many years ago the Dalia Lama visited Navajo medicine people. He told the Navajo elders that their jouney and that of the Tibetians were karmically linked.. The links between Hopi and Navajo are very close and the sand paintings that they do incorporated the same symbols and system of directions.
Now this revelation is making its way again into the minds of people, first discovered at the turn of the century.. could th Dalia Lama be right?
My name is Kymberlee Ruff, MFT. I am part Cherokee by Ethnicity and also adopted into the Hopi tribe by Grandfather Martin Gashweseoma. Grandfather Martin asked me years ago to tell him when I found the "City of Tunnels in the Grand Canyon."
I recently found out that there IS a secret cave under the Grand Canyon! It is believed to be where the cave where the Anasazi disappeared to. The Hopi are the descendants of the Anasazi (The Hopi name is Hisatsinom.)
In 1909 a man named G.E. Kinkaid went on an expedition funded by the Smithsonian Institute and discovered the "Lost City of the Dead in the Grand Canyon". After he passed, a man named Jack Andrews took up the cause of investigating the Lost City. He writes about it extensively at this web site.
I had never heard of it until recently. I was asked to come to Hopi and the Grand Canyon and visit this place with my son as part of the realization of the Hopi/Tibetan Prophecies.
Jack Andrews had created maps and images from the information that he has been given about this sacred site. Here is a map of the ground floor. It is indeed a "City of Tunnels".
Here is a digital image of the mummies that he was told about. I heard that the Anasazi also mummified their dead.
This "Indiana Jones" type adventure began on April 5, 1909 when an article was printed in the Arizona Gazette:
"In his narrative Kinkaid described a series of tunnels and passages with a cross chamber near the entrance in which stood a statue: "The idol almost resembles Buddha, though the scientists are not certain as to what religious worship it represents. Taking into consideration everything found thus far, it is possible that this worship most resembles the ancient people of Tibet."
The article says that they found a statue of a Buddha in a cave under the Grand Canyon!
Here is a computer rendition of the Buddha statue that Jack Andrews created from reports of how it looked.
I was told that :"When the time comes, a woman of mixed-blood heritage would not only help the missing portion of the sacred Hopi tablets, but play an instrumental role in "finding" the 1909 "cave" and the meaning of artifacts inside that relate to the Hopi"
The people who contacted me said that they believe this might be me.
The thing is: I have been dreaming about this cave all my life.
In my humble opinion, I think that I might know why they found a statue of a Buddha in the cave and why it is SO important that this discovery be explained now. I think that I might even know which one of the Buddhas the statue represented.
Through an unusual set of circumstances, I was asked to bring my son to this site in the Grand Canyon and bring a sacred Tibetan artifact to the Buddha statue. Then I was supposed to write about it.
I would like to share this fascinating story and how it unfolded.
I had been planning a visit to see Grandfather Martin in Hopi during August to bring him a copy of the 2012 book that had a chapter about us. In July I had a dream that he wanted me to stop by the Grand Canyon.
I was mentioning this to my friend Gary David who wrote "The Orion Zone". Gary decided to come with us to meet Grandfather Martin in person.
He told me that he was friends with a man named Jack Andrews who had spent his life researching this "Lost City of the Dead" under the Grand Canyon that was made of tunnels.Jack was given information from the family of G.E Kinkaid.
I spoke with Jack Andrews and he gave us the maps and photos to know where the cave was. He stated that these maps and photos would bring someone closer to the cave than anyone has been since 1909.
He was also emphatic that the site be protected from anyone who might disrespect the sacredness of the site and asked me to only share the information with the Hopi since it is their own sacred site.
A couple of days later I got an e-mail from this man named John Nakagawa that I had met briefly in Hotevilla. He said that he had just been to see Grandfather Martin and he asked him to find the City of Tunnels and get back to him. I invited John to travel with us also.
The Hopi/Tibetan Prophecy says that there will come a time when the Hopi are in chaos and a message will come from the brother from the East that will help to unify and heal. I have been told that this Buddha statue represents this message of compassion and that it is time for it to be revealed.
I was told that the statue appeared in the cave a long time ago and was discovered in 1909 as part of the Hopi/Tibetan Prophecy.This coicides with the formation of Hotevilla in 1906 and the activation of the Hopi/tibetan Prophecy. The purpose of it being revealed now is that the time has come to bring the message of COMPASSION to the Hopi and also to the world.
I was asked to bring my son to the Grand Canyon so he could bring a sacred "Double Dorje" to "consecrate" the statue.
On the same day,at the same time, on the other side of the world, some friends from the U.S traveled to Lhasa,Tibet and synchronized creating a matching ceremony.
"The Double Dorje" was brought to Tibet by the great Buddha Padmasambhava. Itis an epiphany, a sudden realization. The double Dorje represents the indestructibility of all phenomenonal essence. It serves as a symbol of harmony, immutability, and all -knowingness. It symbolizes enlightenment, the true nature of reality, the union of relative and absolute truths, and the indestructibility of wisdom.The double dorje is often used as a stamp or seal and placed at the bottom of statues."
It is my belief that the statue is of the Buddha "Vairocana". Vairocana Buddha is sometimes called the primordial Buddha or supreme Buddha. He represents the wisdom of shunyata, "emptiness." He is considered a personification of the dharmakaya
-- everything, unmanifested, free of characteristics and distinctions."
The Axis Twins in the Hopi/Tibetan Prophecy are Grandfather Martin Gasheweseoma and Ven. Bhakha Tulku Rinpoche. Bhakha Tulku IS the reincarnation of Vairocana.
The time for COMPASSION is now. I believe that with 2012 in just two years, the time for the meaning of the Buddha statue in the "Lost City of the Dead" is now.
OM MANI PADME HUM.
