A Story Waiting to Pierce You. Mongolia, Tibet and the Destiny of the Western World

Peter Kingsley

A Story Waiting To Pierce You offers a breathtaking insight into our past and our future as human beings.
A Story Waiting To Pierce You offers a breathtaking insight into our past and our future as human beings. For the first time in centuries it traces the ancient threads that connect Mongolia, Tibet and Native Americans to the very origins of western civilization — showing how these sacred ties have shaped our lives today.

This remarkable book tells, with haunting simplicity and precision, the true story of where our western culture really came from and where it is taking us now.

”A true encanto, an incantation, this book is pure music. It sings to the reader. This is the real thing. In each paragraph of the book, the Spirit is there. This is what the native people of the Americas have been trying to say, but were never permitted to. This song is the song of wisdom that we native people have not been allowed to sing.”

”A wondrous love of wisdom is building inside us. Let this book wake you up into new sunlight: into feeling again the ecstatic wholeness of being alive on this planet, the soul-joy of walking, of reading books (see the astonishing Notes to this text: a great, Nabokovian exuberance), of giving attention to whatever wants to come next, the beauty and the mystery. It is not just a book, and so to be read with the mind. Peter Kingsley’s voice is a friend, and also a way of seeing, of remembering essence, of walking in a great circle around an island you have always loved, but only rarely visited.”

”The rich and dense scholarship in this book is admirable, nay incredible, with worldwide scope. Scholarly discussion depends on evidence — of which A Story Waiting to Pierce You offers the most surprising riches, combined with overwhelming expertise.”

“In this profoundly erudite and eloquent book is a startling ancient secret that will forever alter the way we think about the origins of western civilization.”

“A Story Waiting to Pierce You is, simply, piercing. Peter Kingsley is a master of adamantine prose and peerless scholarship. His work is truly worthy of that overworked term wisdom. And he is a master stylist: he turns you upside down and inside out without your knowing it is happening. This book will inspire, delight and enlighten many but will also challenge others because it is a mirror that reflects our most stubborn prejudices about the origins of our most sacrosanct cultural beliefs. And for that, Peter Kingsley deserves the highest praise.”

“A blazingly alive work of scholarship and spiritual insight.”

ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾  Prof. Jacob Needleman

“By challenging some of our most fundamental perceptions of early European history, Peter Kingsley pushes out the horizon of the modern world and opens a new chapter in our appreciation of European-Asian relations. His innovative research into the spiritual and intellectual debt of ancient Greece to Inner Asia not only broadens our understanding of the past, but also helps us to understand better who we are today.”

“I have read A Story Waiting to Pierce You with tremendous fascination. It is a unique work — a captivating and enlightening book which I heartily recommend to anyone with an interest in Eurasian history.”

ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾  Prof. Victor Mair

“Peter Kingsley is more than a master storyteller. He is a magician who reveals the golden thread of truth which makes its way through time and space, secretly holding the fabric of our world together. A Story Waiting to Pierce You reveals the surprisingly mystical origins, and purpose, of western culture as well as what it means to participate in its eternal unfolding right now.”

“This is a book of miracles — deceptively simple, actively profound. It is a core story of human becoming, the secret history that holds the codes to what we are and what we yet may be.”

ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾ ï¾  Jean Houston

“This is a small book. I suggest that you read it several times and really get the golden idea at its core. Then bring that idea to everything you do — every decision, every choice, every plan, every interpretation. Live by an entirely different guidance. Walk like you’ve never walked before.”
