Review

“Fans will delight in how Barrios connects the Mayan dots.” (Library Journal)

From the Back Cover

A Mayan Priest Reveals What the 2012 Prophecy Really Means for Your Life

Written at the request of the Mayan Elders, by a member of the Guatemalan Elders Council and Mayan priest Carlos Barrios, The Book of Destiny is a tool to help people understand their life purpose and to use this profound knowledge to make the best of their time on earth.

According to the Mayan Elders, at the moment of birth every human being is given a destiny. Our life challenge is to develop ourselves and our skills in order to fulfill this destiny, thus fueling our individual contribution to the planet. At the heart of The Book of Destiny is the sacred Mayan Calendar, an extraordinary tool that allows readers to discover this destiny, along with their special Mayan symbol, origin, and protection spirits that accompany them through life.

I wish everyone could have a copy of this book to read. We have lived in ignorance far too long.

The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012 2 Sept. 2009
By NSD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is without question an excellent book that is comprehensively and thoughtfully written. Once I understood that this is the only book that has been approved by the Mayan leadership, I decided to read it first, and I'm very glad that I did. However, even if I had read other books on the subject first, I believe that the contents of this book would still have been very valuable. There seems to be so much confusion and fear associated with 2012. This book provides a very sensible, comprehensive understanding of the subject from a person who has the highly credible background to inform us. It is positive in perspective, while at the same time presenting what are serious issues that confront our present world. The book is very well written with a smooth translation of the original text, and so it is also a delight to read. It contains wisdom that is worthwhile to reflect on for a long time to come. I am left with anticipation of reading more from Mr. Barrios about what the Mayan have to share when this is deemed timely to impart.

Authentic Maya Teachings 28 Nov. 2009
By Peggy A. Kornegger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very good book for anyone interested in an authentic overview of Maya teachings as they have been handed down for thousands of years. Readers should be cautious about relying too heavily on the information in many of the books now available on the Maya because they are often based on archeological studies that use interpretations of Maya history and culture made by the Spanish conquerers hundreds of years ago, which, not surprisingly, is completely inaccurate. Carlos Barrios's book is not one of those. I found it fascinating reading.

So much information in this book that you need to know! 29 Jan. 2010
By J. Palacios - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a descendant of Mayan heritage, I have read many books concerning the Mayan Calendar and the enigmatic date of 2012 and this is without a doubt the best book that I have been able to find. Many passages in this book will make you think deeply about what is going on in the world and in your own individual life. The Mayan Calendar is truly special because if you truly understand it, you know that it can help you discover the person that you were born to be and realize your purpose in life; that we all are part of a cosmic continuum.
Buy this book, you won't regret it!

The Book of Destiny 20 Aug. 2009
By John D. Blanchard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Someone has finally written a book which truly describes the true Mayan Path. Don Carlos Barrios is an excellent writer and clearly conveys the essence of the pure meaning of the Mayan spirit and their roll as the time keepers for our age. Don Carlos is and Aqj'ij or Mayan Shaman and has studied the Mayan calenders and hieroglyphics extensively for over 35 years. The knowledge presented in this book represents the true Mayan sign and its meaning for each of the 20 day signs. Readers will find the information very informative and fascinating.

Excellent Book 29 July 2009
By C. Raedeke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The only book I've found on Mayan calendrics/prophecies from a Mayan shaman and member of the Mayan Elders Council. Has an excellent, detailed section on each of the 20 Cholq'ij day signs. My favorite book on the subject!
