It shows how there existed a Trans-Pacific connection between two glorious civilizations of the world – the Indians and the Mayans of ancient Americas. It brings out the similarities in thought, knowledge and practices between the two and uses the same to analyze the doomsday fears of 2012.

The year 2012 is the time to pause and reflect on time as understood by our ancients.The year 2012 is the backdrop for going back in time and bringing back a sense of balance to go forward with knowledge, peace and harmony.
