Bamiyan, the area in which the statues have stood for countless centuries, resisting the cataclysms that took place around them, is a small, wretched, dilapidated town in Central Asia halfway between Kabul and Bal, at the foot of Koh-i-Bab, a huge mountain of the chain Paropamiza or Hindu Kush, about £ 8500 above sea level.
The claim that there are no larger statues around the globe is easily supported by the testimonies of all the travelers who examined and measured them.
So, the largest at 173 p. height or seventy feet taller than the "Statue of Liberty" in New York, since the latter is measured only 105 pounds. or 34 meters in height. The famous Colossus of Rhodes itself, between whose legs the largest ships of that time passed with ease, was only from 120 to 130 pounds. heights.
The second large statue, carved like the first in the rock, has only 120 lbs. or 15 lb. above the said statue of "Liberty". The third statue measures only £ 60, the other two are even smaller, and the last of them is only slightly larger than the average tall man of ours of the real Race.
Who carved the huge statues of Bamiyan, the tallest and most gigantic in the whole world? These five statues belong to the handiwork of the Initiates of the Fourth Race, who sought refuge, after the submersion of their continent, in the fastnesses and on the summits of the Central Asian mountain chains. Moreover, the five statues are an imperishable record of the esoteric teaching about the gradual evolution of the races.
The largest is made to represent the First Race of mankind, its ethereal body being commemorated in hard, everlasting stone, for the instruction of future generations, as its remembrance would otherwise never have survived the Atlantean Deluge. The second — 120 feet high — represents the sweat-born; and the third — measuring 60 feet — immortalizes the race that fell, and thereby inaugurated the first physical race, born of father and mother, the last descendants of which are represented in the Statues found on Easter Isle; but they were only from 20 to 25 feet in stature at the epoch when Lemuria was submerged, after it had been nearly destroyed by volcanic fires.
The Fourth Race was still smaller, though gigantic in comparison with our present Fifth Race, and the series culminated finally in the latter.
