“Fans will delight in how Barrios connects the Mayan dots.” (Library Journal)
From the Back Cover
Discover What the Prophecy of 2012 Means for Your Life
According to the Mayan Elders, at the moment of birth every human being is given a destiny. Our life challenge is to develop ourselves and our skills in order to fulfill this destiny, thus fueling our individual contribution to the planet. At the heart of The Book of Destiny is the sacred Mayan calendar, an extraordinary tool that allows the reader to discover this destiny, along with one’s special Mayan symbol, origin, as well as the protection spirits that accompany them through life. Poetically narrated, the book describes how the calendar contains the scientific legacy of the Mayan people, preserved and transmitted over the centuries through oral tradition and written texts.
Written at the request of the Mayan Elders, by member of the Guatemalan Elders Council and Mayan Priest Carlos Barrios, The Book of Destiny is a tool to help people understand their life purpose and to use this profound knowledge to make the best of their time on earth.See all Product Description

For anyone looking for a really down to earth book with some depth, this is the best one out there. Barrios, a Mayan priest as well as an anthropologist, finds a lovely balance-weaving historical and cultural context with specific information. There are many insights that provide a deeper understanding of the many personal, societal and environmental changes we are and will most likely to continue experiencing for a few years.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that he takes on at least one prominent author, who, in the opinion of many, exploits the 2012 phenomenon for personal gain. Barrios explains why this person's work is off base and misleading.
Essentially, while there be some continued disruption as we transition to the next era over the next few years, Barrios provides an important pubic service by shifting the focus off of the idea of there being a day (December, 2012) of abrupt change towards the realization that we are in a sustained period of fundamental transition. His insights and concrete suggestions for surviving and thriving during the next few years, when the tranitions and changes may well be somewhat dramatic, are invaluable. I am very grateful that he took the time to produce this book, which by the way is elegantly presented-nice size, cover material,the many illustrations are graceful, and the book is very well written.
