The Lost Civilization of the Sun – A Missing Link in Our Ancient Past

Most are familiar with stories of the lost civilization of Atlantis, but in this video I explain that there is another lost civilization that lies even closer to us in time that most people are unaware of, and gave rise to the building of similar megalithic sites, and the spread of the same symbols, religion, and measurements, throughout distant parts of the world. I call it – the lost civilization of the sun.

    Thank you Lara for this beautiful video and information.Watching and listening to it was incredible and inspired me so deeply. It gives an incredible picture of our history and origins and such a profound meaning and message for our life and the direction towards spirituality, towards a better world.
    Thank you very much for all your research and work in order to uncover and select all this meaningful information and give it in this beautiful way through this video, uplifting, inspiring and helping so much.

    Congratulations to you, Lara et Belsebuub, for the results of your research.

    The inspiration I have always felt in front of the menhirs and mysterious sites connected to the nature of the cycles of life is exalted by your mystical explanations of the living.

    I am so surprised to have found you. You are always better.
    In all the research I can do to more understand the world, you are the ones who best show the meaning of things.

    Such a valuable and insightful view into this lost ancient past, thank you so much for all the work that has gone into putting the pieces together.

    It’s so interesting seeing how much we take for granted, thinking that things like codes of decency, how to grow food etc is an innate part of us but in reality these spiritual qualities and knowledge of existence seems to have come from spiritual places. I was also thinking how much this video highlights the desolate nature of our current world situation, having come from that time of light and creative guidance and now facing a deep darkness shaped by the loss of those spiritual qualities and principles, and the loss of appreciation of our own lives and life itself. Yet amidst this deep darkness, the light is emerging like a star piercing through the darkness of the night.

    Thank you very much for another groundbreaking video. I have watched it a few times now, and each time something else stands out. What stood out to me now was how violently these practitioners of the religion of the Sun have been persecuted in the past, and how even today some minorities continue to be persecuted. I had a brief look at what’s happening with the Yazidi community you mentioned in the video and its indeed horrible. It really makes me think that humanity as such hasn’t changed much over the millennia, and even though things may feel relatively “civilised” for some of us living in the peaceful parts of the world, it is really just an illusion. As Belsebuub says in his articles and videos, as long as we don’t change within, nothing is going to change in the world, and the same patterns and events are bound to repeat again and again.

    That was a great video, Lara! Words and pictures, pictures and music, all woven into an ensemble of information that brings light and evidence about the religion of the sun and its real ”footprints” over humanity. Something that also helped me to put things in an order about these lost traces was to start reading again the second chapter in the book of ”The Path of the Spiritual Sun”. So, thank you and Mark again for all this given knowledge and I hope that the appropriate conditions can be created so that people can learn and get back the lost spirituality of the sun in its entire splendor.

    So many information hidden, lost or destroyed… I whole huge era of great civilizations, and we only learned from mainstream sources how primitive human culture was back then…
    It’s quite encouraging watching the fragments of information put together in this video, giving a picture I never could even imagine.
    But how difficult it is to pass through this concept to others overcoming the established perception about it. Connecting the dots about this era is a huge job and I’m grateful you are doing it. I guess is for those who are interested to hear, but joining voices like those of Graham Hancock, Martin Doutre (thank you for bringing him to my attention btw) other academics, groups which are reviving this culture of the spiritual sun and such, can build up a voice, so the message to be heard further. I hope, wish and pray for it.

    Interesting developments! It surprised me that the focus was on a post deluge lost civilization of the sun, rather than an Atlantis-based Solar religion. Obviously Manu & the 7 Sages were bringing the spiritual and cultural wisdom from before the flood, and whatever cultures Atlantis or otherwise existed then, but the emphasis on a post flood global civilization was a surprise to me. The video also impresses that things were not as ‘clear cut’ as ’emissaries of the solar religion go out to save humanity and give cultural foundation’; but rather their were all sorts of migrations of people between land masses, buildings upon buildings, teaching which were given and then were hijacked and distorted. And so it’s a great big jumble of thousands of years of which we have very very little actual record and the remains of which can only be open to interpretation.

    I thought it was interesting the note on esoteric and exoteric as well, as this is something we usually think of when we talk about Christianity/Gnosticism. And the links with Shambhala and Freemasonry were a surprise treat as well.

    Thank you Lara! And the others who were involved in researching and producing this. You wrapped it up nicely and I’m certainly glad we can still practice the religion of the sun today.

    It would be wonderful if humanity could understand their origins, it could end so much confusion and hopefully change things for the better. Thanks for putting this video together.

    Thank you Mark and Lara. It is helpful to see the extent of the Civilization of the Sun throughout the world, and the connection of this civilization to the peoples before the ice age 11600 years ago as well as to the solstice celebrations of today.

    Although I find the information amazing, I also find it difficult to relate to daily life. The two seem like separate worlds because modern society and normal lives are devoid of the connection to the past, memory of where we come from, and understanding of where we are going.

    I find solstice celebrations and your works to be the only link and source of hope amidst everything else that seems to only lead to forgetfulness.

    Excellent video and documentary style Lara, its really uplifting to see the religion of the sun coming together with a human face 🙂

    It really is puzzling how the history of this solar religion is not common knowledge, and how so many people travel, take pictures at, and purchase trinkets from exotic places without knowing how some of the worlds’ greatest tourist attractions are rich with the mystery and existence of the lost civilization of the sun. So much is unknown to the world, yet I also sense that sadly many people are happy that way. I think it would be amazing for those that are interested to stick together, so that more could be uncovered and brought out, because it all really is so amazing to learn about and become more and more conscious of such an incredible past.

    These videos keep getting better and better. In addition to clear and compelling way that this story was told – with so much powerful evidence woven together in a way that is easy for anyone to understand – I really appreciated the care and detail in the production, from the well-chosen visuals that really illustrate each point to the sensitive way that the music changed to enhance or emphasize different statements.

    It really helps bring the whole story together and adds something beyond what the written word can convey.

    I’m short on words after watching this video! Not only is the editing done nicely, the video and images are high quality and accompanied by a soothing background music that draws me in, wishing the video never ends.

    Such great research must have gone into this project as so many ancient sites, texts and legends were brought up, weaving a thread through history that was lost and hard to see when looking at each site individually.

    I’m so glad to hear that the religion of the sun is alive again today and hope that anyone who has the longing within them to keep searching until they find that connection with it within and with those in time who left such rich culture behind.

    An exceptional video, bringing to the forefront that which has been hidden in plain sight but across continents and vast distances, because of the disconnection that exists despite ‘globalisation’. Once the parallels are made clear, it is hard to ignore the commonalities.This ancient and lost civilization, who venerated the Sun (in a spiritual sense) was truly amazing. It has indeed left behind such a legacy that is still being discovered and uncovered today.Perhaps history needs to be reviewed, to reflect these truths. Perhaps, it is possible to revive this profound religion once again.

    Thank you Lara!

    This is one (very well done :-D) 15 minute video where things are presented. But I know the persevering drive behind all the work of research must be a great effort. Great work on that.

    Thanks as well to all those often ‘alternative’ researchers which dared to show the truth in their particular fields of research (such as I guess Graham Hancock, Martin Doutre, Thor Heyerdahl etc.) so that pieces are able to be put together.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this video 🙂

    What a great video – so beautifully and professionally presented.

    The information provided in this is really groundbreaking for me and I am sure for many others too. It really makes you rethink all that we have
    been taught and also gives hope for humanity in these very confusing and dark times.

    Thanks very much to Belsebuub and Lara, and everyone else involved behind the scenes. It is most appreciated.

    Very illuminating yet also very sad. So many civilisations based upon higher ordeals and cosmic spiritual philosophies to be wiped out again and again just to be replaced by societies of greed, decadence and suffering. Humanity desperately needs this message and I hope they can hear it and follow it to a better tomorrow.

    A great video, which manages to fill a huge gaping hole in human history in just 15 minutes. Its incredible to think that the civilized world we take for granted today would not exist were it not for the basics of civilization being taught to humanity over ten thousand years ago. What an amazing global civilization it must have been in its heyday. We owe a debt to those ancient wisdom bringers. Although we have retained the knowledge of the material practicalities of civilization, what a shame that humanity as a whole has lost the spiritual knowledge that was originally central to life in the ancient world. Bringing to light our lost spiritual heritage, as this video does, will hopefully help re-spark the Religion of the Sun in the world again, at least for those who still yearn for true spiritual knowledge and want something more than materialistic life.

    Wow very well done in starting to really put it all together!

    It is not easy to access the knowledge about those lost ancient civilisations, but then, as there were and there are so many hostile influences, it becomes even harder to understand this knowledge…

    For example, with all my respect to Graham Hancock, he appears to be mistaken to concentrate on the link between megalithic sites and psychedelic drugs, some other researchers appear to be biased in their devotion to particular cultures, some are limited within constraints of their scientific disciplines, doctrines of mystical schools, structures of organisations, etc.

    I appreciate how you attempt to carefully and objectively connect many different things.

    This is an amazing video which deserves world wide attention. I really hope that the Spiritual Sun wisdom will be revived to all parts of our planet, and bring true peace to our world of chaos.

    I couldn’t get enough of this information and didn’t want the video to end. It really brings hope to my life.

    Well done and thank you Belsebuub, Lara and the team behind the scene.

    What an insight into what past generations that practiced the religion of the sun must have been
    Opens your eyes to see how we as humans in this day and age have lost so many important values that once were general practice.
    I do pray and hope that the religion of the sun will
    return and one day be the dominant force it once
    was among humanity.
    Thank you Lara.
