2013 Research Update

Rediscovery of the Naacal Tablets March 2011 Update

I recently spoke with Thomas Ritter concerning the rediscovery of the Naacal Tablets

Here are the images:

Gopuram (Gate Tower) of the Sri Ekambaranatha Temple in Kanchipuram

and here another picture of the Gate Tower of the Shree Ekambaranatha Temple at Kanchipuram

I made a map from the subterranean tunnel system in which the library is stored away

view of the temple

In the subterranean system there are 10 chambers. In 9 chambers they stored the tablets. In the first 3 chambers the tablets are made fom solid black stone. In the next 3 chambers the tablets are made from gold. In tha last 3 chambers the tablets made from solid silver and brass and an mix of metals wat they callad pachalogha – the so called five holy metals. The 10th chamber is like an small temple with an black Shiva lingam and the statues of the seven holy rishis. In the 9 chambers you find some inscriptions at the walls – they describe the rishis puranas, what means, the live and the deeds of the rishis. I made some pictures from these inscriptions.

second inscription

third inscription

fourth inscription

At chamber no. 1 and chamber no. 4 the priest, who guided me down there to to library, allowed me to take some pictures of the tablets. As attachment of this mail you see one tablet from chamber no. 1

At chamber no. 4 the priest only allowed me to take pictures from 2 tablets, not from all this books there. The 2 tablets he showed me, are a ittle bit damaged. But you can see clearly the inscriptions.

The second tablet from chamber no. 4

Athe end of my visit at this subterranean library the priest, who guided me (his name is Pachayappa), presented a small gift to me. This very small tablet is made from brass, in my opinion. I am not very sure, if it was part of the tablets down there at the library of MU or it was made later. But Pachayappa told me, that the inscriptions at these small tablet are some kind of key to the understanding of the inscriptions of the other tablets. This small item is still with me and I am trying to breach its code. But surely I will need a little help.


Update on the Research for October 2009

This past year has been busy with construction of the new James Churchward Research Institute and some new developments.
First, the construction and cleanup up of our expanded facilities is almost complete. The James Churchward Research Institute will not be open to the public, please continue to send your questions, comments and suggestions via email to

Our first research volume has been completed. “Lifting the Veil On the Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Man; Intellectual Foddder for Further Controversy” has the entire 1926 book included with new notes throughout the text, two appendices covering the people and written works referenced in the text, as well as an index. As yet, we have yet to find a publisher, so if anyone is interested, just drop us a line.

I wanted to pass along that I have yet to hear back from anyone concerning the alleged photographs of James Churchward’s daughters nor have I received any substantial new information concerning the ‘Great Uighur Empire’ as described by my great-grandfather.

I was amazed when I recently looked into my collection of James’ papers and discovered another book by Joseph Cserep. The name of the new tome is “UNDE SINT ORTII MEDI PANNONII, PHOENICES, ETRUSCI DE PRIMORDIIS MADYARORUM.” This one has not been translated from the Latin, so when time and funds permit, we’ll see what can be done to bring more of Dr. Cserep’s insights to the world.

There are two letters from Dr. Cserep to James Churchward available the bookstore. The titles are “Ancient Medes as Ancestors of the Magyars of Europe” and “America as the Prehistoric Cradle of the Caucasian Race.” These are scanned from the originals and include James’ notes in the margins.

In the coming year, without all the renovations to oversee, I look forward to a new website and much more additional content to describe the life of James Churchward and his theories of a lost Pacific Ocean continent that he named “Mu”.

Have a great day,
