Hollow Earth in the Puranas by Dean Dominic De Lucia

Hollow Earth in the Puranas by Dean Dominic De Lucia
Hollow Earth in the Puranas is the first of two new digital releases from hollow Earth theorist, mystic, and Vedic astrologer Dean Dominic De Lucia.  The digital edition include two additional chapters that are not found in the traditional print format.

One area which has been largely overlooked by the Western researcher in folk, paranormal, and earth mystery matters, is that of the Hindu traditions, specifically, the Vedas and the Puranas. These incredible works speak of an ancient time, a time of "gods" and "demons" interacted with, married, abducted, and went to war with human beings. Hollow Earth in the Puranas seeks to open these traditions to a Western audience.  Is it possible than entire civilizations have developed far underneath our planet's soil?  Could the surface of Earth simply be a shell hiding beings and cultures alien to us? The Vedic and Puranic accounts clearly answer the questions by describing how the "ancient ones" came from inside a hollow Earth.  The author makes striking parallels between the aforementioned ancient Hindu texts and modern eyewitness accounts of those coming in contact with the creatures and mysteries that lay just below our feet. Hollow Earth in the Puranas is a must have for those interested in Hindu traditions as they relate to hollow Earth theory, "Fortean" experiences, and cryptozoology.

Hollow Earth in the Puranas is available through Grave Distractions Publications in eBook editions at the following online retailers: Amazon, Amazon Australia, Amazon CanadaAmazon UK, Barnes and Noble, iBookstore, Kobo eBooks, Scribd, and Smashwords.

About Author Dean Dominic De Lucia

Dean Dominic De Lucia was born in Bethesda, Maryland, in 1956. He studied Business Administration at the University of Baltimore, and later on completed a two-year course in translating at the Catholic University in São Paulo, Brazil, where he currently resides.

He has maintained a life-long interest in Indian/Hindu philosophy and spiritual practices, which ultimately led him to take up Vedic astrology. He began his studies of the same in 1981 under Nalini Kanta Das/Tom Hopke, and has been a rather constant student and practitioner of the art ever since. His articles were published quite a few times in the older The Astrological Magazine, as well as in the newer follow-on magazine, Modern Astrology, published in Banglore.

Dean maintains a unique perspective throughout the book, one of presenting pure Vedic astrology in its original form, as it was before the times of the Muslim invaders, and without hodge-podging it with other systems. This is rare among Hindu writers on Vedic astrology, and practically unheard of from a western writer on the subject. At the present time, Dean organizes classes on Vedic astrology in São Paulo, Brazil, where Astro Vedica was translated and published as the first book on the subject in the Portuguese language.
