The Hidden Manna by Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet


the hidden manna the revelation called apocalypseSummary: The Hidden Manna being the Revelation called Apocalypse of John the Divine with complete text and commentaries is a complete interpretation of St. John’s Apocalyptic prophecy based on the author’s understanding of its cosmological underpinnings. Verses of the prophecy are followed by a discussion of the symbolic images and processes described by John and the mysteries of the Revelation are deciphered in terms of events unfolding in our modern world as well as in terms of the ancient Rig Veda. The author proposes that the prophecy cannot be properly understood without the hidden key of the zodiac, and that the theme of both the zodiac and St. John’s Revelation is the evolutionary process by which the ‘non-unified consciousness’ is conquered and replaced by ‘a consciousness of Unity’. This book, printed at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Press in Pondicherry, India in 1976, directly addresses the advent of a new consciousness – a new race, and the destiny of ‘the concealed One’ who returns to conquer the darkness and to forge the true center of a ‘new heaven and new earth’.

Quotes from The Hidden Manna: ‘Most of the great ancient civilisations have . . . made use of the same key . . . [a] universal language which enables one initiated into its mysteries to understand the words of another initiate, even when separated by continents and mountains and seas, – or else by great aeons of time. Yet both are looking to the same heavens for the formulation of the Language, whereby through the immutability of the celestial harmony the barriers of Time are broken, as well as into the same identical soul-fount within for the key to the evolution on this Earth of the Spirit. Combining these two – the vision above and that within – a universal language is formed which belongs to all men, for all are possessors of a soul and all have the eye of consciousness which sees the flow of Time mirrored in the eternal, harmonious movements of the cosmic bodies.’ p.11

Chapter XIV: 'The way to a new world and a new consciousness is laborious. In verse 12 – as in verse 10 of the previous chapter – the pioneers of the new race are encouraged to have patience, or endurance, as translated elsewhere. Time and again they will see the way blocked and the deep abyss into which they must descend, in order to release the sacred fire therein, will seem to be indeed a bottomless pit whose floor ever recedes into the blackness, enveloping them in its murky filth.’ p.192

Kalki the last in the line of avatarsChapter XIX:
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

'The Conqueror comes on a white horse, the same as Kalki of the Indian Puranic tradition, for indeed he is Kalki, the last in the line of avatars . . . .'
pp. 261-262

Chapter XXI : '. . . the student can see that all these ancient prophetic texts have many, many levels and they can only begin to become comprehensible when one approaches the study from the standpoint of a unified consciousnes, with an eye for synthesis. The keys are usually clearly given in the texts themselves, yet often their very simplicity hides their meaning.' p. 335
