Keith, do you know about David Reigle's work with the Books of Kiu-Te and
his project of trying to reassemble the Book of Dzyan? He was on theos-l
early in February 1995 (yes, that far back) telling us a bit about his
research. He has spent many years on this work and accumulated thousands of
original texts, I believe.

For a glimpse of his work, see his little booklet "The Books of Kiu-Te"
published by The Wizards Bookshelf, San Diego, in 1983. He published a
leaflet called "Book of Dzyan Research Report" in May 1996, from his Easter
School Press at 3185 Boyd Road, Cotopaxi, CO 81223, USA. His phone number is
(719) 942-4602 (from the 1995 theos-l message). There's a whole school there
for the study of Sanskrit and Tibetan, to prepare students for research on
the originals.

By the way, I like the way you have tried to initiate discussion on The
Voice of the Silence. Would join in but for pressures and priorities.
