How I Became the Guardian of a Tibetan
Yogi Shyamasundara relays his story,
"Hari Om Tat Sat eternal embodiments of
Divine Consciousness. In September 2009, I was relaxing at home when out
of the blue I turned to my spouse and said, 'I need to find a crystal
skull.' Surprised by the statement I had just made, I was intrigued that
these unexpected words had come from my mouth. Though I have great respect
for all traditions, I had never had a personal interest in crystal skulls nor
had I done any research in this matter. However, soon after relating
this message, I was enveloped by a powerful sacred energy that drove me to
search for a crystal skull.
I kept searching for weeks on end, not knowing
what I was looking for and certainly not knowing where to find it, but something
powerful kept driving me to keep searching. If someone had told me a week
earlier that I would be looking for a crystal skull, I wouldn't believe that
person. And yet here I
was searching for one! I hadn't chosen crystal skulls, but for reasons I didn't understand
at the time, they had chosen me.
I continued, like a madman, looking for a specific
crystal skull, but I had no idea where to find it. I just couldn't stop.
It was a fascinating phenomenon. I was looking everywhere and every place
I could possibly think of. I felt like superman, with supernatural energy
that allowed me to search for 14+ hours a day. There were times when I
thought to myself, 'I think I've gone crazy! My spouse is probably thinking
that I've gone mad!' And there were times when he did
seem concerned about me. Then again, can you blame him?! Everyday my life was consumed with this urgent quest.
Along this journey, so much interesting crystal
skull information began flowing through my consciousness. As if memories
from a time long ago were awakened and downloaded into my mind. I was
shown in meditation various ways to use crystal skulls to heal, serve, and
bless others. This information was new to me, and I wasn't sure what I
would do with it. Already an established spiritual guru and master
healer, I certainly knew I didn't need a crystal skull to help others and I
wasn't sure how my spiritual community would receive such news. Yet my search went on
. Day in and day out this search was as intense as the day it had
started and I
began to wonder if it would ever stop.
Then in January 2010, I discovered an amazing crystal skull in the care of a Tibetan artifacts dealer,
who specialized in very old sacred relics from Tibetan monasteries.
At that moment, the intensity that had dominated my life shattered and I was finally at peace.
I was excited! After all that time, all those
endless hours, we were finally standing face to face with each other. I
was mystified by his looks and deeply touched by his vibration...so beautiful
As the euphoria from this reunion subsided, I
thought, 'What am I doing? I don't need this crystal skull!' However, I could feel his
sacred presence calling me throughout each day and his image kept appearing in my
mind. So time and again I returned to look at this captivating and
mysterious crystal skull.
I finally decided the least I could do, after all
that, was to conduct impartial esoteric tests. As an avid collector of sacred relics, I only
acquire those special relics that I have fully verified can awaken profound
spiritual mystic states in others. So I put Heruka through these vigorous tests. To my delight, time and again my
consciousness was elevated to experiences of
profound love and light that dissolved me into peaceful emptiness. It was
On one occasion, while meditating deeply with this skull, I had
a vivid encounter with a Buddha that manifested before me sitting on a
throne. He smiled at me with great kindness and a tremendous love exuded from his eyes. He felt so familiar to me, like a dear friend from a
time long ago. He uttered the name, "Heruka", and dissolved into the
crystal skull. I was deeply touched by this experience. It is for this reason that this skull is named Heruka.
Since Heruka is the Buddha of ultimate reality in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition; the true nature of all
phenomena as infinite light, love and bliss, and the very enlightened
consciousness within us, I instantly understood that a divine consciousness
wanted us to look deeper into this crystal skull, for something
special was awaiting. But what I asked myself?
A couple of weeks later, I called a dear friend of mine, Diana
Navarro, a healer and clairvoyant herself. I didn't want to affect the
results so I didn't share my experiences with her. I simply asked if she
could meditate with "this crystal skull" and tell me if she had any impressions.
She called me later that day and told me the first thing she heard was the name,
"Heruka". My heart was excited to hear this news. She went on to tell me
of profound mystical states she experienced as she meditated with Heruka.
We were both truly touched by these first initial experiences.
I also consulted my father who has dedicated most
of his life to studying esoteric wisdom. Once again, I did not relay my experiences, but simply asked
him to offer any impressions he got, if any. After meditating with Heruka,
my father said,
'You must get this crystal skull! He's been looking for you. It is
thousands of years old. The decorations came later, but the skull itself
is ancient. If you can't do it, you can't do it. But if you can find a
way, don't let him go. He's something very special. I wouldn't be
surprised if the eyes and colored stones turn out to be something that humanity
hasn't seen in a long time. When I meditated with him, his eyes began to
float by themselves. There is something really special about his eyes.
He's an amazing
Given my clairvoyant experiences and the sacred vibration that Heruka emanates, I knew without any doubt that he was an authentic sacred relic.
It reminded me of the vibration of the sacred relics I had experienced in the ancient
temples of India. Heruka certainly emanates such divine vibrations.
So I asked the Tibetan dealer for more information. I wanted to know
everything there was to know about this sacred crystal skull.
me that he had acquired Heruka from a family in the Ali
province of Tibet. It had been a family ancestral Buddhist ritual item
for more than 100 years and had been gifted to them by a Buddhist monk, as this
family was known to host high dignitary Lamas in their home. Generations later, the family decided to sell Heruka, along with other sacred relics they
had been gifted by these Lamas, to this Tibetan relics dealer.
I was intrigued with this new information and
became concerned that Heruka would end in a private collection where the general
public would have no access or knowledge of him. 'A sacred relic of this
magnitude needs to be shared with the world', I thought. So I was deeply
moved to acquire him. I immediately assembled a private team of senior
disciples and clairvoyants to independently
work with Heruka and share
with me their results.
To my great delight, all of the volunteers reported amazing
experiences. A couple of them started as skeptics, and a couple were even
a little afraid of his looks, but were quickly
transformed. Over and over again, they reported powerful experiences of
love, deep meditative consciousness, vivid psychic visions,
emotional and physical healings, and a deep feeling of dissolving into a
peaceful emptiness. After much testing and deliberation, I came to the definitive conclusion
that Heruka was not just very special, but was here to serve humanity on a
The Tibetan dealer was a very kind and honest man who gained my
trust through his incredible patience as he answered my never-ending questions.
He was so confident in Heruka that he even offered me 45 days so that I could
get Heruka tested and validate his authenticity. With that being said, my esoteric authentication of Heruka and those of my volunteer team, I
knew there was no going back, so I acquired Heruka.
I immediately used my time wisely and had Heruka
analyzed by professionals to learn everything I could about him. I
contacted William Novotny, an appraiser in the city of San Gabriel with 30 years
of experience, but he said Heruka was beyond his expertise and did not think any
appraiser would be able to help me. Instead he advised me to contact a
curator at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. I contacted this curator,
but he couldn't tell me much either and suggested that I send Heruka to their laboratory
in Santa Fe. However, tests were extremely expensive and time consuming so
it just wasn't feasible. I then took Heruka to Arnold's Fine Jewelry,
a high-end jewelry
store in Pasadena that's been in business since 1890. The gemologist, Bruce Arnold, was
a kind man who analyzed the jewels on his crown and the eyes with his scientific
equipment for free. However, the results were filled with mystery. The eyes
appear to be rainbow obsidian, however, the spectrometer reading and the
specific gravity did not match that of obsidian. He said, 'This is really
a mystery to me. It is definitely natural, but I just don't know what it
is. I thought it was obsidian at first, but it is too light. As if something else
is in it. I thought it was feldspar, but that isn't right
either. I just don't know. This is strange. I've never seen anything
like this before.' The colored stones on the
crown were also tested several times, but the results were inconclusive. I asked the gemologist about the tiny holes on the colored stones
and whether this indicated that they were modern. He said to me, 'Well our
ability to do this on a gemstone has been around for a few
I also met with an old colleague of mine, Donna Ballard, a gemologist
in North Hollywood with over 20 years of experience, who kindly agreed to
analyze the whole skull. She couldn't determine what the stones were
without equipment, but she said she was
very intrigued with the crystal skull itself, as this single piece of quartz exhibits
characteristics of quartz found in completely different parts of the world!
Other things to note are that the colored stones on the crown are
held in place with pitch (tar), which both gemologists said was very unusual. The symbol on Heruka's crown (the double vajra) is used to consecrate sacred relics in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition,
which confirms that he was used as a sacred relic in Buddhist ceremonies.
We know Heruka was hand carved, since the eyes, nostrils and eyebrows are
So after meeting with professionals, Heruka is as much of a
mystery as before. Instead of answers, I was left with more questions.
Who made Heruka and for what purpose? Where did he come from originally? What
was he doing in a Buddhist monastery and why did they use him in sacred
ceremonies? Why did Buddhist monks gift this sacred relic to this family?
How could a professional with modern scientific equipment not be able to
determine what the eyes are made of? How is it possible
that a single piece of quartz exhibits characteristic of quartz from different
parts of the world? How old is Heruka? Why is his energy so
powerfully sacred and beautiful? Why does he feels like a child whom you can't help
but love in his presence? Who was that being who appeared to me and uttered the name "Heruka"?
Right before the end of 45 days, the Tibetan dealer asked if I
planned to keep Heruka. I knew there was no way I could return him.
The universe had made me the caretaker of this precious crystal skull
and we had both worked very hard to find each other. So with great
delight, I decided Heruka was here to stay. He had
become very dear to us like a family member.
The dealer was happy to hear this and relayed a fascinating
story. He said that a couple of days before I acquired Heruka, a private collector
came to his store and offered to buy him. The dealer didn't sell Heruka only because he had already committed him to me.
So the collector requested the dealer to notify him if I returned this crystal
skull. Without knowing it, I was literally days away from losing Heruka
and just as I feared, he would have ended up in a private collection. It
was at that moment that I realized the urgency of the sacred energy that kept
pushing me. I was running out of time and I didn't even know it. The
universe was making sure that I didn't lose a single moment. A difference
of just days would have meant a
People ask if I personally believe Heruka is an ancient crystal skull.
I can say that he
certainly feels very old to me, but I never got him for that reason. I
acquired him because he's a very special sacred relic that has the ability to
affect the lives of others, and awaken consciousness in a way that is beautiful and
deep. For me that's more important than age. So I'm not concerned with how old Heruka may be,
but instead more interested in what he can do for humanity, both on a universal and individual level.
On the other hand, several reputable clairvoyants have independently stated that Heruka
is ancient. Internationally renowned
medium, Wendy Kennedy, channeled information about Heruka. She stated that
Heruka is 12,000 years old. However, the quartz stone that Heruka was
carved out of was used for a long time prior to it being carved into a skull.
She related that there are four guardians protecting libraries of
secret information within Heruka on healing, divine secret knowledge, recordings of
Earth's history, and inter-dimensional
travel. These four guardians had brought me
to Heruka because of my sincere spiritual service to humanity. That Heruka
had come to me so that I could extract the information and share Heruka with others.
Two psychics, Jill Jackson and Joan Darlene,
independently reported seeing Heruka used in a Rama temple in Indonesia, in
My spouse, Ed Bishop, who's also clairvoyant, channeled
this wonderful information. He said, "This is a very special and sacred
crystal skull with a very important purpose for humanity. The skull is
thousands of years old. However, the copper work is only 100-300 years
old. There used to be something else where the eyes are now, but it
was accidentally lost and destroyed a long time ago. The stones on the
top and the eyes belong to two other sacred relics that were used with this skull.
In an effort to keep these items from getting lost too, the copper
work was added by Tibetan Buddhist monks to keep the essential parts
together and to identify this skull as a special sacred relic.
However, the lost parts do not take away from the skull itself. I'm
getting that the colored stones are actually manmade crystals. These crystals were
made with a particular purpose a long time ago. Both the eyes
and the stones are very special. The family was given this
crystal skull by Buddhist monks over 100 years ago. One of their
family members was a monk himself and so they entrusted this family with
this sacred relic. These monks foresaw what was to happen in Tibet in the
near future and they wanted to keep this crystal skull safe. The
family was compelled to sell this skull when the time was right so that it
could find its way to you. There is a special
between you and Heruka. You both have been working together for many
lifetimes. You had originally commissioned this crystal skull thousands of
years ago to serve your mission. This is your crystal skull and he calls you whenever you take
rebirth in this world to assist you in your spiritual missions."
And though the
idea that Heruka and I have been working together for many lifetimes may sound
a bit strange and unusual. I have heard this time and again from
random clairvoyant strangers, with no prior knowledge of me or Heruka,
and without me asking them anything, that I had to ask myself, "Why does this message keep coming
I look back on my sacred journey and see that day
by day, I was catapulted towards a new understanding on
how Heruka could help serve humanity. At first I
contacted several crystal skull experts in this field to ask their advice, but I
didn't find the answers I was looking for. So I decided to use my wealth
of spiritual knowledge to discover it on my own. As a spiritual guru, mystic yogi, and master healer with extensive experience in
yogic sciences, discovering
how to work with Heruka was very natural to me. Using mystic processes,
I consecrated Heruka as a universal enlightened servant of
humanity. Test after test revealed new information that led me to compose
and modify dynamic sacred yogic processes that awaken the Kundalini of the
participants and connect them with their enlightened consciousness, so that they can
connect with divine wisdom, sacred blessings, mystic states, and divine states of
oneness with God.
These mystic yogic processes are what I call
"The Portal to Cosmic Consciousness". Once the participants are
spiritually aligned with Heruka, the rest becomes an automatic powerful process that is unique
and deeply personal. The rest can only be experienced!
heart is delighted that so many have reported such profound experiences in
Heruka events. There are those who have received miraculous healings
and prosperity blessings.
Others have reported clairvoyant visions of hallways in ancient Egypt,
ancient temples in Indonesia, prehistoric eras including jungles with dinosaurs, alien planets
with their inhabitants, and beautiful spiritual realms. Some have
reported astral projection and others have spoken directly with
Buddhas. In several events, more than 95% of the participants reported feeling
the presence of holy beings walking around, offering blessings to everyone. Amongst
the most common experiences, are the experiences of love, peace, bliss, and
deep meditative consciousness. The stories go on and on, and each
experience is deeply personal for each participant. That is why I
recommend that you honor your experiences and not compare yourselves with
others. You'll receive exactly what you're meant to receive and that can change drastically from one event to the other.
All we can do is enjoy the journey. So come as you are and
experience Truth in your own Sacred Nature. You don't need to believe,
you just need to be open to sacred possibilities. The rest will
take care of itself as you awaken to Cosmic Consciousness and the Divine Presence
of God within you.
This magnificent journey has been an auspicious adventure and I'm
honored to have Heruka be a part of my sacred mission, as we travel this path
of love, peace, healing, and enlightenment together in oneness for all beings. Thank you for listening to my
story. I pray it has touched your heart. I love you, honor you,
and bow down to your Divinity and to God within you. Om Namo Narayanaya. Om Shanti (Peace)."
