Tribute to Mother Earth in the Amantani Island
Bohic Ruz Team conducted a research and filmming of one of the most important ritual in Lake Titicaca about the Pachamama (Mother Earth offering)
Filming and studying the PACHAMAMA ritual made in one of the islands of Lake Titicaca. The ritual performed on this island is one of the most important in Peru. The central ritual of the Pachamama or Mother Earth is the Challa or payment (tribute). It is made by the first day of August, throughout the month. The ceremonies are run by elderly or greater moral authority within each community people. In the case of the Aymara people this person is called "Yatiri". At the end of the ceremony Yatiri interprets the events of the year, especially regarding the results of the crops.
Previously Unknown Mayan Codex Discovered and Authenticated by Period Experts
A few days before the famous end of the Mayan cycle of 5125 years ending on 12/21/12, a new Maya Codex unknown to date has been presented to the international community. A research team has discovered an invaluable piece missing from the Mayan culture. The lost codex has been safeguarded by a family for almost three centuries. According to experts, this Codex is one of the best preserved of the 4 existing in the world with an antiquity of (+/-) 1540 AD. It is protected by carved wooden front and rear covers. In a first analysis they have intervened: Roderick McNeil, Anselm Pi Rambla, McCrone Associates and Janet G. Smith, ISA.
Problematical of El Niño affecting thousands of migratory and local birds
Anselm Pi Rambla & Bohic Ruz Team in the Paracas Reserve working on the ecological and environmental impacts due to the El Niño current.
In climatology it is called El Niño, a cyclical climate erratically syndrome, which is a change in the patterns of movement of air masses causing therefore a delay in the kinetics of the "normal" currents, triggering warming of South American waters; that causes real Worldwide damage affecting South America, Indonesia and Australia. The name "El Niño" is due to fishermen from the port of Paita in north Peru that found that the waters of the Peruvian Current or Humboldt Current, which flows from south to north off the Peruvian coast, warmed at the time of Christmas holidays of fish or fleeing south, due to a warm current from the Gulf of Guayaquil (Ecuador). This phenomenon was given the name El Niño Current. The scientific name is El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO, for its acronym in English). It is a phenomenon with over eleven thousand years of climate history.

It´s a pleasure to work with the Bohic Ruz exploration team on the most risky expeditions
Research and filming works
We make films and archaeological and archaeoastronomical research in the ruins of Ollantaytambo, one of the most monumental architectural complexes of the Andes, 80 km. From Cusco in the Urubamba Valley. Commonly called "Fortress" because of its huge walls, it was actually a city-bed and a solar temple, strategically located in the famous "Sacred Valley".
The architectural type used, and the quality of each stone, worked individually make Ollantaytambo one of the works of spectacular and remarkable engineering that made the ancient Peruvians, especially in the area of the Temple of the Sun with its gigantic monoliths.
According to Pi Rambla, the sector of the Temple of the sun of Ollantaytambo, which is only a wall was not built by the Incas as announces the official archeology (DC 1440) but by an ancient culture that is still unknown. According to their research, some of the granite stones that make up this wall weighing over forty tons were transported from the mountain which is across the river of a distance of 4 kilometers with a height of over 800 meters.
Many questions arise that even conventional science could not explain: How were they transported these enormous blocks of stone from a quarry located 4 kilometers away, perched on mountain slope to the very top where the sun temple is located? How they were planted and put in place?.
Spectacular rock cut made with a totally unknown and very sophisticated technique as we can see in the photo. How they were cut and polished with such a level of perfection?. This is not achieved with tools of stone or bronze, as these materials do not make a dent in andesite and pink granite that Ollantaytambo was built. How did you managed to gather each other with such improbable perfection, you can not insert a sheet of paper in the joints? and they did it without any mortar or cement or some kind of sealant.Anselm Pi Rambla
Study the Hopi traditions with Dan Evehema Family
Bohic Ruz Team participated in an ethnological research with leaders and relatives of the spiritual Hopi leader Dan Evehema in Hoteville, Arizona
According to his tradition, the history of mankind is divided into periods they call "worlds", which are separated by terrible natural disasters: the first world succumbed by the fire, the second by the ice and the third by Water. We currently live in the fourth world, and in total, mankind must go seven. Not being verifiable historically the first two worlds, the Hopi tribal memory goes back to the time of the Third World, whose name was Kasskara. This was the name, in fact, of a vast continent located at the current site of the Pacific Ocean. But Kasskara was not the only inhabited earth. There was also the "country of the East". And the inhabitants of this country have the same origin as those of Kasskara.
The people of that country began to expand itself and conquer new lands, attacking Kasskara face of opposition from the latter to be dominated. They did it with very powerful weapons (and one immediately thinks of the devastating weapons described in ancient Hindu epics and the atomic explosion of Sodom and Gomorrah), impossible to describe. Only the elect, those selected to be saved and survive in the next world were gathered under the "shield". The enemy shells burst in the air, so that elected placed under the "shield" remained unscathed. Suddenly, the "country of the East" for some unknown reason disappeared under the waters of the ocean, and gradually began to sink Kasskara. At this time, the katchinas helped the elect to move to new land. This marked the end of the third world and the beginning of the fourth. We must clarify that, from the first world, humans were in contact with the katchinas, word that can be translated as "venerable sages." It was visible beings, of human appearance, they were never taken by gods but only as beings of knowledge and potential higher than the human being. They were able to move through the air at enormous speeds, and land anywhere. Since it was corporeal beings, They needed to travel to this displacements a flying machines, a "flying shields" -as in the Roman chronicles, like in the chronicles of Charlemagne who received different names. Today katchinas no longer exist on Earth. The katchinas dances, as well known in America today are represented by men and women as a substitute for existing beings on the old times. The katchinas could sometimes look strange, whereas they originally katchina used to make dolls for children to get used to his appearance. Today, these dolls are preferably made for tourists and collectors.
The population, according to the traditional memory of the Hopi came to the new land in three different ways. Selected to tour, inspect and prepare, they were brought there by air, on board katchinas shields. The great rest of the population had to save the enormous distance aboard boats. And it was made this journey along a string of islands in the northeast, extending to the lands of South America today.
The new land called Tautoma, which would mean "the touched by lightning." Tautoma was also the name of the first city erected on the banks of a large lake. According to current knowledge, Tautoma it identifies with Tiahuanaco while corresponds to the Titicaca Lake, in the current border between Peru and Bolivia. Subsequently, a cataclysm rocked the city, destroying it, that is the reason the population was scattering across the continent. For a long time these men from the Pacific were dealing in groups and clans on both sub-continents. Some of these clans were in the company of katchinas, who often intervened to help. The Hopi were part of the group of tribes who migrated northward, and legends recall a period when they crossed a warm jungle, and a period in which they encountered an "ice wall" that prevented them from advancing towards the north, and forced them to turn back.
TLong after these migrations there were clans that still retained the ancient doctrines. These clans came together and built a city "of a trascendental importance, which was called the red city "", which is identified with Palenque in Mexico's Yucatan. In this city it was established school of learning, whose influence can still be detected in some Hopi. The teachers of the school were the katchinas, and teaching material consisted essentially of four sections: 1. History of the clans 2. The nature, plants and animals 3. Humans, their structure and their physical and mental functions 4. The cosmos and its relationship with the maker After a period of numerous clashes between the cities established in the Yucatan, the inhabitants left the area and resumed their northward migration. During this turbulent time the katchinas left Earth. The few clans that have continued to keep alive the ancient knowledge gathered later in Oreibi, being this the reason for the special significance of this place.
After collecting all the information in these traditions on katchinas, we can say the following conclusions about these beings who, without being considered as divinities at any time and this is important, they are at the cosmic level of a direct interference in the Works with humans: they had physical body, had the appearance of men in many aspects behave like men, but they had very superior knowledge than humans. They possessed flying machines, and a mysterious shield rejecting the enemies projectiles at high altitude. They were also able to make children for women without any sexual contact. To this must be added the skills that humans learned of katchinas, the most important of which was perhaps cutting and transport of huge stone blocks and, and related to that, the construction of tunnels and underground facilities.
Some of these traditions and findings can corroborate observing the customs of its immediate neighbors, the Zuni and Pueblo Indians, who along with the Hopi are the group of people in the current Arizona. For example, the Zuni, whose temples are underground ceremonial chambers, preserved the cult of the plumed serpent as celestial deity, indicating the Mexican origin of certain elements of their religion to link directly to the image and cult of Quetzalcoatl (identified with Kukulcan and Gucumatz) that it was also feathered and flying serpent, somewhat corroborating the narrations of the Hopi who claim to have established for some time in the area of Yucatan. Zuni They also worship the Katchinas for them messengers and intermediaries between the gods of heaven and humans. Thereby practically identified with -messengers of divinity, that in biblical texts operate under the concept of angels. Another curious fact is that this group of Indians practice the art of painting in dry sand or pollen, in front of their altars for religious ceremonies. The origin of this art is unknown, and it is also practiced in Tibet and among some tribes of Australia.
In their reserve of Arizona, the Hopi Indians still maintain the custom of elaborate masks and puppets called katchina or kachina and strictly follow the way of processing and the same "designs" for many centuries.
Only peace with the earth and the human being can survive only if the human race we are ready to change this possible. The Hopi play an important role in the survival of human beings in their vital communication with the unseen forces of nature to maintain balance, as an example of practical alternative to suicide system created by modern man. The message is simple if a change towards peace does not occur: "The whole world will shake and turn red and will go against those who interfere Mother Earth".

Contact with natives Piros and Machiguengas
In this expedition to the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest, the Bohic Ruz Team collaborated with the anthropology department of the Complutense University (Madrid, Spain) on an ethnological research of the tribes Piros and Machiguengas of the zone of the Alto Madre de Dios.
These studies were complemented with ecological research in collaboration with the North American biologist Dra. Jane Stern of the department of zoology of the University of California (Davis) and professor of Biology in Berkeley (USA).
With a total of 8679 registered individuals, the Machiguengas constitute 3.62% of the registered indigenous population. This total does not include the isolated population whose volume cannot be determined. Nor does it include the kugapakori already sedentary and established relatively a few years ago in Montetoni and Malanquiato, in Alto Camisea, with a population of approximately 240 individuals. Population estimates considered a minimum of 7000 people (Wise and Ribeiro, 1978) to a maximum of 12000 people for this group (Varese, 1972; Uriarte, 1976).
In 1924, the missionary Navarro estimated its population at only 3000 or 4000 individuals. In the Machiguengas settlements there are an average of 271 people, although those established in the Manu area are smaller with an average of 100 people.
The masculinity index is 104.2, which is below the average registered for the entire census indigenous population. The distribution of the population according to age indicates a large group of children under 15 years of age (49.6%) and only 1.2% over 64 years of age, which characterizes a young and growing population. The crude death rate is 11.29.Bohic Ruz Explorer
Secret transmissions about Chang Shambhalla
Studies and research of Tibetan Buddhism and its secret symbolism in the monastery of Sonada (Darjeeling, India) with the spiritual leader, Kalou Kempo Rimpoche, master of the “Kagyupa” and one of the few who know the teachings of the Kalachakra "Wisdom of fire"
In 1980 I was in the monastery of Sonada (Darjeeling, India), researching and studying Tibetan Buddhism and its secret symbolism with the spiritual leader Kalou Kempo Rimpoche, master of the Kagyupa and one of the few who know the teachings of Kalachakra called "the wisdom of fire". The Kagyupa lineage is one of the four main lineages of Tibetan Buddhism who has the complete knowledge of the ancient teachings (Nyingma) that reached Tibet in the past. These teachings were given by the historical Buddha Sakyamuni, and the lamas have been preserved to this day in pure and authentic form by direct transmission from master to disciple. One of the things that impressed me most and marked for all studies of the Tibetan tradition, was the information that the master Rimpoche gave to me about the existence of a sacred place, a kind of underground paradise inhabited by highly evolved beings and possessors of great knowledge called “Chang Shambhalla”, a Hidden Kingdom inacesible to our humanity located on the borders of Central Asia and ruled by a King of the world. In Tibet Chang Shamballa is considered the original source of the Kalachakra, the largest and most esoteric branch of Tibetan mysticism. For over 900 years, Tibetan lamas have been studying and practicing this science with occult meditation techniques. Rimpoche was initially very unwilling to inform me of this secret but at last he gave me their knowledge about what they knew of this sacred place. He said that there were two "Shambhalla´s” one was terrestrial and and other one was celestial, being the terrestrial a copy of the celestial in a remote and vague place in Asia. In India this terrestrial center is called "Kalapa" and in the old Russia "Bielovodye", the Land of the wihte waters. In all these studies I discovered that the most secret and sacred texts described by the great lamas, was also mentioned another place that was confused with the Asian terrestrial center called Chang Shambhalla, a place they said located beyond the Great Ocean (sic), far from Tibet, in a mythical Ancestral land, a land inhabited by highly evolved beings that possess great knowledge.
Study of Moais
For a long time, researchers have wondered about the meaning of these gigantic statues and the way in which the locals transported them from the quarry where they were carved to the different ahus (ceremonial platforms where the moais were located) scattered throughout the island. There are about 1,000 moai on Easter Island.
