Here’s an excerpt from the introduction:
The Religion of the Sun is the world’s oldest religion, once practiced by a global civilization that arose at the end of the last ice age but was lost to history, and by other lost civilizations stretching even further back in time that were pre-ice age. It views the sun as the outward manifestation of the spiritual sun—an embodiment of the divine source of creation and symbol of higher consciousness—and understands its annual cycle through the solstices and equinoxes to allegorically show the path to enlightenment. This is why the ancient practitioners of this religion aligned their sacred sites and ceremonies to the sun’s path with such precision.
Over time the global civilization of the sun fragmented, but many of its principles lived on in ancient religions and cultures that either descended from it, or revived the spiritual knowledge that underpinned it. These principles are timeless and part of life – that’s why they’re imbued in creation in the movements of the cosmos – and have been revived and re-given in many ways and forms over time according to local conditions.
