For a few years Amen-hetep IV led a life of great happiness and enjoyment in his new capital, and his whole time seems to have been passed in adorning it with handsome buildings, fine sculptures, and large gardens filled with trees and plants of every kind.

He appears to have bestowed gifts with a lavish hand upon his favorites who, it must be admitted, were the officials who seconded his wishes and gave effect to them.

Life at Khut-Aten was joyous, and there is no evidence that men troubled themselves with the thoughts about death or the kingdom of Osiris. If they did, they made no mention of them in their hymns and inscriptions.

Your mind understands what you have been taught; your heart what is true.
