John, thanks for the interesting links.

Although not an expert on it, me thought that the Shambhala religion of the 
Silver Palace antedates the Bon, does it?

Would be interesting to know, whether there are tunnels under the palace.

>Gematria is fun.

Are you amused with it?

Lindtner found out that all terms in the New Testament have the same 
numerical value as its original terms in the Lotus sutra (and some other 
Sanskrit sources).
BTW, some may find it strange to note that Sans krit in Old High German 
means Holy Scripture.

One of the byname of the Buddha is Sakyamuni.
Gottfried de Purucker writes in his Fumdamentals (a commentary to The Secret 
Doctrine), p. 236:

"Take the case of the Lord Buddha. Please notice that we here speak of the 
Lord Buddha, although we speak of the great man as Siddhartha, his personal 
name, and of the sage Gautama, or Gautama-Sakyamuni. Gautama was his family 
name; Sakya, his clan name; Sakyamuni, the Sakya sage, was the title given 
to him in later life and after."

Now, sakya and muni are also Old High German terms and mean saxony monk, 
monk from Saxony. Lord Buddha, the Saxon, the Saxony sage, is his clan 
But this was only a little digression to Lindtner. Hope, his book is soon 
translated into English. Theosophists should support it as it is the most 
heavy scientific proof that HPB is right and that such a strange thing as a 
wisdom tradition exists I have been aware so far.
