The Secret Of The Sculpted Tibetan Skulls

The Secret Of The Sculpted Tibetan Skulls And The Secret Alphabet Written On Human Bones

Our planet is the home to more strange things than we can imagine … The sculpted Tibetan skull is part of these fascinating and mysterious things, emblems of ancient civilizations, of which we have too many legends and too few truths today.

In addition to symbols believed to represent ancient deities, an unknown alphabet was inscribed on the skull. The mysterious Tibetan skull was accidentally discovered in an antique shop in Vienna, Austria.

After being analyzed by several researchers, the skull gave birth to a heated debate, because it seems that no one had heard of the existence of this object.

Tibetan, Nepalese and Indian practices of sculpting skull bones are well known (the resulting objects are called Kapala, but most of the time they are just skull caps).

Whole skull encrustation was, therefore, a very rare practice.

The only ones who know more about the mysterious habit of carving the skulls are Khenpo Tibetans (monks-teachers), who say that in ancient times the skulls were carved and used as amulets against curses thrown at families or to guide the souls of others in the world of dead.

But additional information about the Tibetan skulls and this form of sculpture is very difficult to find. The fascinating Tibetan sculpted skull was sold at an auction house in Austria by an owner who claimed that he was left with an inheritance from a relative who was a doctor in Vienna.

The doctor also practiced medicine in Asia, at a Buddhist monastery, where he received the skull as a reward for his services.

Among the figures carved on the skull, two skeletons dancing are clearly distinguished on the forehead. Of these, they are believed to represent the protectors of the Dharma, the guardians of the Buddha’s teachings.

In addition to the dancing skeletons, on the side of the skull there was also identified a flying creature, believed to represent the Garuda-protector, “He who defeats Nagas (demons) who dare to provoke him.”

On the left side of the skull is represented Vajrapani (Power), one of the oldest Bodhisattva of Mahayana Buddhism, the “guardian of all Buddhas”.

The vajra double cross, representing the family of Buddha, was carved on the crest. Four heads of goats were carved on the skull, on a platform with three steps.

But what is most enigmatic about this Tibetan skull is that it also includes characters written in an ancient language, probably “chain’sa”. According to other interpretations, however, the inlaid characters are: Man, Ma, Sa, Ma, Ta, Sa, Man, Yes, Ma, Ta.

These are a mantra (yogic formula with magical value) uttered during the monks’ meditations, which may lead us to the conclusion that this skull was used as a tool during prayers to activate the kundalini energy.
