VISSER Verhandelingen der Koninklijke Akademie van Wetense to Amsterdam AFDELING LETTERKUNE NIEUWE REEKS DEEL XIII No. 2 Amsterdam Johannes Muller PREFACE. The student of Chinese and Japanese religion and folklore soon discovers the mighty influence of Indian thought upon the Far-Eastern mind. Buddhism introduced a great number of Indian, not, especially Buddhist, conceptions and legends, clad in a Buddhist garb, into the eastern countries, in China. Taoisrn was ready to gratefully take up these foreign elements which in many respects reseualded its own ideas ...

... the Rising Sun. Mr. O'Neill published A Firstjtz ,panese Book, which has been of great use to students. It is a translation of one of the Buddhist discourses of Kiu-d.(Kiza-B-Dow-a) with notes' and the original rendered into Roman characters. This field of Oriental research led naturally in after years to a study of Chinese and some slight acquaintance with the .thousands of.ideagraphs which enable that ingenious people to dispense with an alphabet. In this branch of study Mr. O'Neill was greatly indebted to Professor Gustav Ybtenaoir of the Author. Schlegel, of the Leyden University, for help and instruction. That great authority on the learning of the Far East ...

4. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Macbeth, king of Alba (Scotland): both had the same grandfather, both made pilgrimages to Rome, both ruled overlapping parts of Scotland, and no chronicle or saga mentioning one makes any reference to the other. The single apparently insurmountable obstacle to such a theory is the differing paternal lineage of their respective wives [3 ]. Chinese Voyages An essay in a recent volume considering counterfactual aspects of world history considers the delightful fantasy of a Chinese discovery of America and a pre-Columbian contact with its peoples', but concludes that Certainly it could not have happened until the Chinese had firmly established themselves along the western coast of Africa.

... to the presence of both stone and fire at in or on the sacrificial altar where victims were first burnt to the supreme cosmic Northern ruler and Swayer of the Universe. And we do actually find in archaic China " a precious stone " and the victim ordered to be both placed upon the pyre for the "smoking sacrifice."2The Chinese cyclopedia called the Wu tsa tsu (end of 16th century) mentioned that " if the magnet-stone be heated its fluid evaporates, and it is no longer sensitive."3 And this theory of mine may even point to the manner of the first smelting of an iron ore as an accident in the sacrificial fire.

... From: Horus Vol. 1 No. 2 (Summer 1985) Home | Issue Contents The Ching Hsing by Charles Raspil An ancient Chinese astrological principle in use during the Former Han Dynasty (205 B.C . -23 A.D .) suggests that Chinese astronomers then believed that the planet Venus could deviate from its expected position in the sky and that it had already done so in earlier centuries of their ancient history. The principle says: "When Venus appears, it does not cross the sky. When [it] crosses the sky, the country changes its government. " A commentator on this text, Meng K'ang, explains that Venus can cross ...

... the terrible and uncanny fires that swept across the countryside around Peshtigo, Wisconsin on October 8, 1871 were found in a similar condition.(2 ) Jewish traditions record that coincidently with this event the day was unnaturally lengthened, on the first night of Passover, near the beginning of spring.(3 ) Identifying this account with the Chinese report of a meteor shower, Velikovsky gives us the exact date: March 23rd. A whole chapter is devoted to various ancient traditions in which he finds other descriptions of the same events. On what is this date based and how securely connected are these various other traditions? MARCH 23rd Velikovsky's sources for the meteor shower, the Catalogues ...
