Product Description

Decodes the message inscribed on the Great Cross of Hendaye in France

• Uses the work of 20th-century alchemist Fulcanelli to predict the date of the fatal season of the apocalypse

• Shows how periodic galactic alignments may cause catastrophes on Earth

• Examines how the secret of the center of the galaxy reveals the true location of the lost civilization of Atlantis

• Reveals the alchemical secret of the imperishable Light Body of ancient Egypt deep within our DNA

The Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye reveals one of Western occultism's deepest secrets: The alchemical transformation of base metal into gold is also the transformation of the current Iron Age into the Golden Age. Based on the work of the enigmatic 20th-century alchemist Fulcanelli, authors Weidner and Bridges show how the greatest alchemical secret is that of time itself and that coded into an obscure monument in southwestern France--the cross in the town square of Hendaye--is the imminent date of the apocalypse. The authors' explorations of this symbolism lead them from the cross of Hendaye to the western facade of the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, the Pyrenees, ancient Egypt, and the secret origins of Atlantis in Peru, to reveal that we are indeed living in a "fatal season" and that this season is intimately connected to our solar system's alignment with the galactic center. The authors' in-depth examination of alchemy's connection with the coming end days also reveals that this astro-alchemical knowledge was part of the sacred science of the Egyptians and the Atlanteans, whose coded messages are, at last, deciphered to guide humanity to its future destiny.

5.0 out of 5 stars DiaGnosis: Fascinating! 19 Feb 2007
Format:Paperback
Un updated, much expanded edition of A Monument to the End of Time

In 1926, an enigmatic alchemist called Fulcanelli published a book called "Le Mystere des Cathedrales", or Mystery of the Cathedrals, which explains how Gothic cathedrals have hermetic and alchemical secrets encoded into their architecture and sculptures. In 1957, a second edition appeared, and included an extra chapter on the significance of a monument in the town of Hendaye in the Pyrenees. The monument - an engraved pedestal with a pillar and engraved cross - was built around 1680. The Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye is a thorough exposition of the hidden meaning encoded into this Hendaye Cross.

The authors have traced the alchemical thread back to Egypt; to the first Gnostic groups, and re-exposed the fact that behind alchemy lies a triple transmutation - inner, outer and time. The inner transmutation is the refining of the psycho-sexual energies and fluids; the outer is using the inner change to transmute physical states; the third is the same transmutation applied to the whole Earth, changing the Age of Iron to the Age of Gold. The 4 ages - Gold, Silver, Bronze and Iron relate to the 26,000-year cycle of precession, with the Fall occurring when the Tree (the celestial axis, or earth's rotational axis), points away from the centre of the galaxy. "Resurrection"or "redemption", occurs when the Tree points towards the centre of the galaxy. This is the point when the "sparks of light" - our souls as fragments of God - return to the source.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done!! 4 April 2009
By A. M. Tawadros - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very nice view into esoteric occult mysteries. The strength of this book is the way Mr. Weidner & Mr. Bridges explain history, mythology, alchemy, qabalah, astronomy, astrology & tarot cards into the meaning of symbols on the Cross of Hendaye. If you have no background for the above subjects, the authors provide adequate explanations for you to understand their way of thinking. If you are closed minded, unwilling to stretch boundries in accepted history & science, you will have an under-appreciation for this book. If you have an open mind to a different view, especiality with history, you will appreciate the author's thought processes. Even someone with a substantial formal education will understand a need to look into these esoteric studies that are not formally taught. I thank the authors for this very informative book.

By G. Stray - Published on Amazon.com

Un updated, much expanded edition of A Monument to the End of Time

In 1926, an enigmatic alchemist called Fulcanelli published a book called "Le Mystere des Cathedrales", or Mystery of the Cathedrals, which explains how Gothic cathedrals have hermetic and alchemical secrets encoded into their architecture and sculptures. In 1957, a second edition appeared, and included an extra chapter on the significance of a monument in the town of Hendaye in the Pyrenees. The monument - an engraved pedestal with a pillar and engraved cross - was built around 1680. The Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye is a thorough exposition of the hidden meaning encoded into this Hendaye Cross.

The authors have traced the alchemical thread back to Egypt; to the first Gnostic groups, and re-exposed the fact that behind alchemy lies a triple transmutation - inner, outer and time. The inner transmutation is the refining of the psycho-sexual energies and fluids; the outer is using the inner change to transmute physical states; the third is the same transmutation applied to the whole Earth, changing the Age of Iron to the Age of Gold. The 4 ages - Gold, Silver, Bronze and Iron relate to the 26,000-year cycle of precession, with the Fall occurring when the Tree (the celestial axis, or earth's rotational axis), points away from the centre of the galaxy. "Resurrection"or "redemption", occurs when the Tree points towards the centre of the galaxy. This is the point when the "sparks of light" - our souls as fragments of God - return to the source.

The thread is traced from ancient Egypt to the Coptic Church, the Gnostics, the Hebrews, Islaam (the Sufis), the Order of Sion, and the Knights Templar, the grail romances, the tarot, and, with increasing persecution of heretics, the engraving of cathedrals, and finally, the Rosicrucian movement.

The 4 engravings on the pedestal are found to refer to the 4 tarot trumps; The Star; The Moon; The Sun, and Judgement. The pillar is the Djed, or Earth's rotational axis ( Moira Timms has already pointed this out see Raising the Djed). The two "x" engravings refer to the winding of the ecliptic and the equinoctial points, plus trump 20, judgement. The "ocruxaves pesunica" engraving means "the secret concerns a cross and a snake which somehow measures the 12th part". When combined, these clues (along with clues from the kabbalistic Tree of Life, whose 22 paths correlate to the 22 tarot trumps), the authors conclude that half a precessional cycle ago, the spring equinox fell on the cusp of Leo/Virgo; 12,960 years later, in 2002, the autumn (fall) equinox will be in the same position. The planetary attributions of the tarot trumps, combined with the orientation of the faces of the monument confirms that 22 September 2002 is the date in question. Trump 14, temperance (Alchemy), correlates to the direction of Galactic centre, while trump 21, the World, correlates to the opposing Galactic edge.

Fulcanelli implies that the cross at Hendaye signifies a "fatal period" of a "double catastrophe". If autumn equinox 2002 is the mid-point of a 20-year period (the XX engraving implies this), this may imply the last katun of the Mayan "Great Cycle"(13-Baktun cycle), since this is the nearest autumn equinox to the katun mid-point (12 Feb 2003, Long Count date 12.19.10.0.0). The authors were stunned to discover that Paul LaViolette has been warning the world of just such a double catastrophe, in the form of a galactic core explosion, which he already tentatively linked to the 2012 end-point. The first effects would be "electromagnetic shifts...crustal torque, pole shifts, tidal waves and high winds", the second catastrophe would be "an explosion of the sun's corona caused by the influx of cosmic dust pushed by the galactic superwave".

Fulcanelli also said that the inscription "ocruxaves pesunica" revealed a place of refuge. By clues from Fulcanelli, the authors arrived at 2 anagrams: Inca cave, Cusco, Peru, and Hail to the Cross at Urcos. The authors were again amazed to find not only caves at Cusco, but a nearby town called Urcos with a cross. Sadly, the original cross had been destroyed, but they concluded that the place of refuge may be either the caves at Cusco, or the legendary tunnels under the Andes, if someone finds an entrance.

The authors suggest that we should learn to "weave" our "Bardo or transitional body into nicely fractal flows of self-awareness" simply by meditating on compassion, as suggested by the work of Itzhak Bentov (Bentov explains in Stalking the wild Pendulum p.33-36 & 54-56 that in meditative states, the breathing is so gentle that it no longer interferes with the feedback of the aorta, allowing the system to become resonant, allowing the whole body to resonate at the same frequency as the earth - 7.8 Hz. How this is affected by the increasing rate of Schumann resonance remains to be researched). We shall thus be ready to be "harvested", to become a soul inhabiting a star, like the pharaohs of Egypt (see Star Birth Bardo in the Body of Orion). The Paris Papyrus gives some clues that the transformational process may be triggered by the light from the glow of the exploding galactic centre, triggering a cerebro-chemical outpouring which fuels an internal light that externalizes as "the shining light or star body of imperishable quality". The authors suggest that we need to prepare by performing a ceremony every equinox, in which the kabbalistic tree of life is "projected onto the Celestial sphere", a technique developed by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time 20 May 2007
By J.S.M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had high hopes for this book. The author was featured on a radio program I listen to and gave a good interview, but on actually getting and reading the book I went from excited to mad in just a few chapters. Quite frankly, the author knows nothing about esotericism, to say nothing of a basic conceptualization of history. He starts out with talking about the book, then veers off into a discussion of Abraham, i.e. the mythical Patriarch, asserting that Abraham was given knowledge by god that the secret to the universe had to do with an alignment of the earth with the galactic center. Are you a little sceptical yet? You should be. After this revelation the author makes the assertion that the Tree of Life glyph in the Kabbalah actually refers to a constellation and that, moreover, when you fold it one way you get a mystical cube, which somehow has something to do with the galactic center. Absolutely no evidence is given for either one of these things.

It only gets better from there on. He goes on to talk about, for no obvious reason whatsoever, new age theories about how DNA generates photons.

The research, if there was any beyond an afternoon's worth, is terrible, the book makes no cogent arguments or presents any evidence to support the muddled assertions and in the end basically asks the reader to take it all on faith.

And because one permutation of the inscription on this cross at Hendaye yields the word "Urcos" and because the authors googled it, or looked it up in an Atlas I think they said, and found that there was a town named "Urcos" in Peru......suddenly Peru is the heart of an Atlantean civilization whose descendants are the Basque people of Spain and France, because Hendaye is close to the French Basque country.

The mind reels. It also reels at how exactly the authors can reconcile a literal belief in the existence of Abraham with a belief in some pre-cataclysmic civilization in South America.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, but so many topics without logical organization 23 Oct 2012
By David Montaigne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Before I even get into this book I want to point out how impressed I am with the thinking of Jay Weidner. He really understands how the secret wisdom of ancient mystery schools could be conveyed across the ages. Anyone considering this book will probably also appreciate his analysis of Stanley Kubrick's movies, especially 2001 and the Shining. Kubrick was a genius, possibly the greatest producer/director ever - and I would never have appreciated the unthinkable scope of what he achieved - especially the alchemical nature of 2001: A Space Odyssey - without Weidner's interpretation. Look it up and prepare to be amazed.

That being said, "The Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye" is not an easy read, nor is it meant for a mass audience. Unlike Weidner's interpretation of Kubrick's movies, you have to be well educated in certain topics to fully appreciate this book. Readers who are already familiar with the concepts of alchemy, golden ages, eschatology, the precession of the earth's axis, the astronomical nature of the dragon, the cube of space, the sun behind the sun, the Knights Templar, the philosopher's stone, the tree of life, galactic superwaves, Atlantis, and the Bible (especially the New Testament, especially the Book of Revelations) will understand a great deal more of this book than those readers being introduced to those topics through this book.

Despite the chaotic whirlwind of topics through which the authors seek support for their overall conclusions, the heart of this book is simple enough - there are two main themes - an analysis of a 17th century monument which encodes a great deal of hermetic wisdom, and a study of "Fulcanelli," the pseudonym of one or more modern initiates in a hidden mystery school who explain(s) the esoteric messages hidden in the art and architecture of France's greatest cathedrals. Fulcanelli's explanations are found in the 1926 book "Le Mystere des cathedrales," a book which brought many secret traditions and hidden wisdom into the light of day for the first time in centuries. Fulcanelli's book also had a new edition three decades later with a new chapter about an intriguing little stone monument in Hendaye, just across from the French border on the Atlantic coast of Spain.

The monument at Hendaye is covered in alchemical symbols on the four sides of its base. Summarized very briefly and incompletely, Fulcanelli interprets these as derived from the Tarot deck of cards and also says the overall meaning is that every half-precession cycle (every 12,900 years) there are world-destroying disasters on Earth caused by something at the center of the galaxy. Weidner and Bridges believe the "double catastrophe" Fulcanelli says will hit the northern hemisphere will occur sometime between 1992 and 2012, but that it can be avoided in a place of refuge - a cave near Cusco, Peru. The authors reach these conclusions based on an analysis of the Latin inscription on the cross on Hendaye's monument, which contains a glaring error they think was intentional.

The authors' focus on alchemical transformation is best understood after realizing that alchemy is not so much the attempt to transmute lead into gold, but rather to (re)create a golden age. They argue that this can be accomplished only during a brief window of time (around 2012) determined by the center of our galaxy. This seems to indicate that the Mayan focus on the alignment with the galactic center and the winter solstice sun around 2012 may be very meaningful, or at least share a source of inspiration with the Hermetic traditions of Egypt. We will be lucky if the coming destruction results in a golden age.

Despite the great number of topics discussed and the meandering route taken through many secretive topics, readers seeking a greater understanding of esoteric wisdom should reach the end of the book a little wiser. As an author myself, I found hundreds of useful explanations, references, and quotes in this book - and it remains one of my favorite books on deciphering an ancient understanding of eschatology.

5.0 out of 5 stars MAGNIFICENT: A very terse and succinct composite of the Esoteric Science is in this stone monument 27 May 2013
By William J. Meegan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Esotericism is a very deep school of thought that few can wrap their minds around. Throughout the ages initiates have been identified by the works they leave behind. From the four images on the base (foundation) of the monument to the tip of the cross at the top the esoteric knowledge carved into it is as profound as the esotericism scribed into the first chapter of Genesis.

Esotericism is not a spoon-fed philosophy. The initiate has to know much about symbolism and has to have done an enormous amount of work spanning the length of his or her life. Redundancy is the hallmark of science and this monument is full of redundant ideas, which reinforces its message.

The four images at the base (shape in the form of a cube) of the monument actually represents GOD: the TRINITY and the gift of the Keys of the Kingdom, which is knowledge of the opposites in the material world: symbolized by the Sun and the Moon.

The Star has several meanings. One, it represents the third aspect of the Trinity: CHRIST or the mediator between heaven and earth or SUN AND MOON. Second the STAR represents the neutral swastika, which infers again the opposites: Male and Female swastikas, which can only be formed by the KAMEA OF SATURN: 3 x 3 magic square. The Neutral Swastika is that which is between the Male and Female swastikas. This brings to the fore a host of research projects to wade through, which must be done.

The fourth image at the base of the monument with an 'A' in each of their quadrants points to the spiritual vision that is given to the deserving soul/psyche. This cross represents the Northern Cross or symbolically Cygnus the Swan. This cross or spiritual vision can only come about when there is a consensus of the TRINITY. Without that consensus no one can be BORN AGAIN. The base of the monument is actually a commentary on the first word of Genesis: BERESHITH; however, there is a fount of knowledge behind that.

The column is interesting because it has seventeen flutes in its construct, which is 8 + 9. Seventeen is a spiritual number representing the merging of the spiritual and the material, which is the cube of the base transforming into the shoot of the column. The column is a succinct commentary on the cube of the base. The 8 & 9 = 17 point to Scorpio and Sagittarius, which between these two signs of the Zodiac the galactic core can be seen: pointing to Cygnus the Swan: Northern Cross, which is the concept of being BORN AGAIN.

I will leave the top of the monument for the reader to contemplate for him or herself.

This book is a magnificent read and I recommend it to all that have an interest in the science of ESOTERICISM.
