Himalayan Tantric Shamanism is a testimony we want here to share , as a
research, with you.
The roots of myths and rituals go down to the subsoil of
grave-cult and fear of death. E. Durkheim and K. Jung often
argued that the collective excitation (surexcitation) of clans, tribal
and Shamans rituals were experienced by participating members as
trans-personal (impersonal), overwhelming power (Mana) , though
to emanate from the clan archetypes (or collective
uncousciousness) represented (embodied) in the Totem. The
Totem would then induce with Mana all associated symbols, uniting
the tribe in a single system of beliefs, practices and
The word Sidhe (also spelled Sidi, Sidh, Sid, Sith ...) may be regarded as the standard
term for "fairy" in the Gaelic tongue of Scotland , Wales and
Ireland. While some reliable authorities further stress that Sithide
or Sithde is the genitive of Sithd, a female fairy, Gaelic
records Sidhe as also implying "hill" or
"mound". Mounds and hills often are both graves and
abodes of the elves.

Whom Does the Grail Serve ?
Taliesin said :

"" the Cauldron of the Head of Hades (The Grail) had a
rim set with pearls adorning it, the fire beneath it came from the breath
of nine maidens, it would not boil for a coward. The poem mentions the
Cauldon being at CAER SIDI , the Grail Chapel of King Peleur in Camelot .
In the Arthurian Quest, the Cauldron is found by Arthur and his knights
on their descent to Annwn, the Astral Plane. The prize of the Grail is
that it heals the sick and wounded, feed those at the Round Table with
whatever they wish, and protects them from plague and old age. Above all,
it is the Cauldron of Prophecy, which renews the soul. When Arthur is
slain at the battle of Camelon by Modred, he is carried of to the Isles
