8 Amenti literally means "Occident", that is, "the Land of the Dead". The word also alludes to the region where the sun mythically "dies" every day. But this is only a rather transparent image. The sun or, rather, Ra, the Sun-god, was a personification of the dead Atlantis. The Egyptians were so centered on death and its cult, because they in contrast to us still clearly remembered the Atlantean cataclysm. Likewise, Atlantis the true name of Punt or Amenti or Hades, etc. also lay towards the southeast of Egypt and of Greece, rather than towards the West and the Atlantic Ocean, as so many authorities formerly thought.

The fact that the Egyptians formally called the southeastern gate by the name of Eastern (or Oriental) Gate is also full of esoteric symbolisms. Lanka and its counterparts (Amenti, Punt, Ophir, Dilmun, Hades, Abzu, Yamakoti, etc.) were indeed located towards the Orient in relation to the Mediterranean Basin. There, the Old World civilizations arose and died. Lanka is old even in regards to India, and it was there that its great epic, the Ramayana, was composed. In fact, Lanka was the site of Paradise, the one we know under the name of Eden. Originally, Lanka and its Holy Mountain (Trikuta, Meru, Atlas, Zion, Alborj, etc.) were equated with the Mountain of the Orient, a term identical in meaning with "Mountain of Origin", the birthplace of Mankind.

When it exploded, razing Atlantis-Eden, the name of the Holy Mountain was naturally changed into that of "Mountain of the Occident" (occidere = "to die"). Rather than to directions which vary with the position of the observer such names indeed refer to actual places. So, "Orient" designates the place where the sun is born, and the new day starts by convention. And this was Indonesia, the site of Lanka, the meridian of origin in antiquity. Likewise, "Occident", the place where the sun died daily, referred to the western lands of Eurasia, the Old World. The Egyptians, like the Greeks and other peoples, attempted to transfer the myth to their new place of residence. But this never worked, and only led to riddles and paradoxes that even today torment all sorts of experts, unable to solve the puzzle created by this change of point of reference.

9 As such, these pylons represented the Gate of the Sun, another name of the Mountain of the Orient (or of Sunrise), that is no other than Mt. Meru. Such name indeed derives from Hindu epithets of Mt. Trikuta (or Meru). For instance the name of Ophir the mysterious region visited by Solomon's men indeed derives from the Dravida o-piru (or o-phiru) meaning "Gate (o) of the Sun (piru)". Mt. Meru, the Mountain of the Orient, is also called by epithets such as Hemadri ("Golden Mountain"); Karnikachala ("Lotus Mountain"); Devaparvata ("Mountain of God"); Trikuta ("Three Peaked"); Sunyodaya-giri ("Mountain of Sunrise"); Ushas ("Dawn" = the Malaya Range), Aruna-chala ("Mountain of Sunrise"), etc..

10 We treat this fundamental matter in detail elsewhere. Despite its importance, it cannot be treated here for reasons of space, and we recommend that the interested reader seek our works on this subject. The "blooming lotus" is, yet, an allegory of the explosion of Mt. Atlas. The symbolism of the lotus (in both Egypt and India) is treated in other works of ours,which should be consulted by the more sanguine reader. One of our works on the subject is entitled "The Secret of the Golden Lotus", which also figures in our Homepage.

11 The giant wielding the mace and striking down the Primordial Serpent is an unequivocal reference to Atlantis and to the fact that it lay in Indonesia. When one looks at a map of the region, the reason for the allegory becomes evident. The figure represents quite accurately the local geography. The raised arm and the mace correspond to the Malay Peninsula, locally called Kra (or Kara = "Hand", "Arm", in Sanskrit).

The "head" of the giant is the Southeast Asian promontory and the sacrificial victim he strikes and cleaves in two formed by is the islands of Java and Sumatra, cleft apart by the giant explosion of the Krakatoa volcano that opened the Strait of Sunda (the "Door"). Far from being an illusion, this allegory is a sad reality which is obsessively mentioned in the Bible (the raised, irate "arm of Jahveh" smiting the impious) and in other mythologies.
