Ancient Egypt comes to London Tuesday 30 October 2007 PDF Print Tutankhamen will be arriving in London in November. An expert on this king and his tradition is Dr. Ramses Seleem, an internationally-acclaimed author and teacher, who has lectured and appeared on many television and radio programmes worldwide to discuss the ancient Egyptian way of life. Dr. Seleem’s teaching is unique because he studied, for over 25 years, with the custodians of the Egyptian body of knowledge, who undertook to protect this sacred tradition when Egypt was invaded by the Arabs in the 6th Century AD, leading to the spread of Islam and the decline of the true Egypt. The mysteries of Egypt have remained a constant source of fascination and speculation over the years, from the so-called ‘Tutmania’ in the 1930s to the myriad of programmes that occupy prime time on television channels today. With the advent of the 02 Tutankhamen exhibition in November, the excitement is beginning again. Modern Egyptologists have sought to explain many aspects of ancient Egypt but have misinterpreted much of what they found, portraying the ancient Egyptians as cat-worshipping pagans, regardless of their remarkable achievements and monuments, which remain unsurpassed to this day. In contrast, Dr. Seleem can shed light on the real meaning behind the hieroglyphic texts, monuments and mythology because he represents the true Egypt, which is as relevant to us today as it was for the Egyptians for many thousands of years. As Dr. Seleem says, “The teachings of ancient Egypt were built upon natural laws and principles, rather than on the life of a particular individual and so they form a tradition which makes us better than we have ever been but which does not require us to give up anything previously gained… “…My tradition is not dead and irrelevant. It is vital and intensely alive to this day and can serve to awaken knowledge of the natural harmony that has always existed between man and nature which, sadly, has almost ceased to be recognised.” Principal of the Sia Academy For Ancient Egyptian Studies in London, Dr. Seleem teaches courses and classes in the ancient Egyptian body of knowledge and conducts annual tours to Egypt. He has written books covering many aspects of the ancient Egyptian culture and is currently finalising an entirely new computer programme for the Medut-Netru (hieroglyphs), the language of ancient Egypt.
