Daniel Ruzo

1900 - 1991

Excerpted from "Markawasi: Peru's Inexplicable Stone Forest" by Kathy Doore

Markawasi (Marcahuasi) details the true account of an ancient, lost humanity of mysterious origin, whose hidden legacy carved gigantic, towering, stone monuments, pointing to a message with predictions for the future.

First discovered by Daniel Ruzo in 1952, who excitedly pronounced it the most important sculptured work existing on the earth today, and soaring high above the Pacific coast on the western-most ridge of the Peruvian Andes, directly above Lima, Peru, Markawasi was virtually unknown to the English-speaking world a decade ago. Readers will undertake a journey through the pages of Markawasi, connecting the clues and evidence of a technologically and culturally-advanced civilization that held the keys to all human knowledge.

Daniel Ruzo writes, "Our discoveries were made like this: Observing rocks near where thousands of people lived, but they didn’t see them because they lacked faith in the magic world and in the works of art left by a former humanity which created and respected this world and produced these incomparable works of art, but left no signature. The artistic work was the rhythm of life, like heartbeats, or breathing, or walking on this earth. It was a work of magic. Humanity has forgotten all of this and considers going to the moon much more important. It cannot explain the appearance of these genius men who break all barriers to arrive at surprising results without seeking for himself, and without listening to dogmatic voices - which try to reduce to words that which has no name.

We demonstrate in this book that the carvings and the sculptures made in the natural rock, to be seen from a point of view or a certain direction, and in conditions of special lighting, give credit to a style that could only be expressed by men of profound pantheist faith. The technique of these sculptors has not been repeated in subsequent history. These works are found in different places on earth, very removed from one another, repeating the same symbols, and with one thing in common: they are found around sacred mountains, temples of lost humanity, so they won’t be forgotten and that they may serve one more time to purify and save humanity."

These are the words of Daniel Ruzo, found in the introduction of his book, "Marcahuasi The History of a Fantastic Discovery", first published in the Spanish language in 1974. Ruzo (1900-1991) was certainly one of the grandfathers of the new modern Age.

Markawasi is a unique mountain top, geologically unlike any of the surrounding Andes, located 80KM north east of Lima, Peru. Daniel Ruzo, a genius by his own definition, has dedicated his life to the study of sacred sites around the world.
The works of art referred to in the introduction of his book are the monuments, monolithic sculptures, some megaliths, which are found on top of Markawasi. There are hundreds of these monuments on the small plateau. They are so large, so clear that even someone who isn’t a seeker cannot argue their existence. The "monuments repeating the same symbols" are found in Tepotzlan and Guanajuato, Mexico; Rio de Janeiro and Vila Velha in Brazil; Lake Titicaca, San Cristobal and Los Angeles in Peru; Stonehenge and Avebury in England; The Sacred Valley of the Kings in Egypt; the Carpatos mountains in Rumania; and Kakadu National Park in Australia to name a few. Although Daniel Ruzo also studied the monuments of the Easter Islands, he made no conclusion about their origin. All of the monuments in all of these places, according to Ruzo, were created by a humanity that lived before the time of the flood for which Noah built his arc.

The monuments mark the general area of the caves and caverns that made possible the salvation of our humanity, and those previous, during the time of the great catastrophes. The last catastrophe was a flood and Noah’s arc is merely a metaphor for the caves and caverns, marked by the monuments, all over the world.

According to Ruzo the catastrophe (a fire, previous to the flood) was survived by Adam and Eve by living deep inside caverns. Daniel Ruzo formed his theory of humanity in the 1920’s. It was his life’s work to support his theory. Using the Bible, myths and legends from around the world, the works of Nostradamus, astrology, and other sources, he sights evidence that illuminates his belief. The theory is:

    *Human life on earth has been made up of five humanities, each humanity lasts 8,608 years and is made up of four sun cycles of 2,125 years each.
    *We are in the fifth humanity.
    *Every 8,608 years the earth suffers a catastrophe.
    *Following the zodiac, humanities have survived catastrophes of earth, fire and water.

According to Ruzo the next catastrophe will be by air and will occur between the years 2127 and 2137. The monuments around the world mark the entrances to the caves and caverns that will make possible the salvation of the seeds of humanity. As the monuments are only indicators that these all-important entrances are in the general area, we, the faithful, must make it our mission to locate the entrances, in time to prepare the caves and caverns, before the next catastrophe and save the seeds of humanity as they have been saved by the previous humanities. The universal symbols referred to in the introduction of "Marcahuasi" (Markawasi) are the key to understanding how to locate the entrances on the sacred mountains. As the entrances have yet to be found, we must work to "break the code" of the symbols to find them.

Daniel lived on Markawasi for a period of nine years beginning in 1952. He took thousands of photographs of the monuments during that time. He found that depending on the time of day and the time of year, in the light of the sun, the moon, or the stars, even in shadow, that different sculpted images can be seen, even in the same monument.

There are many important facets of Markawasi, all pieces of an incredible, complex puzzle. For the ancient healers, a rich pharmacopoeia of medicinal plants, the bounty of the mesa, provided remedy of physical and spiritual ailments. Twenty-two energy vortexes, called “cruzes”, or crosses, carved in stone, each having a specific healing power, are easily visible on the plateau and have an undeniable energy that can be felt without any special preparation or sensitivity; spontaneous cases of healings have been reported. From the mountain the landscape diminishes into the distance, calling attention to the abysses and plummeting stairways, shrouded in mist. On clear nights, the stars descend so close that one could nearly touch them. From the West, brilliant rays reflect off the sea. There are other atmospheric phenomena of which there is no explanation. Certainly they present themselves at any moment with elongated, circular or oval form, and sometimes emanate strong lights that blind the eyes.

The enigmatic forms sculpted by the rocks have created a series of conjectures, theories, and hypotheses that possess an esoteric, metaphysical, and para-psychological construct. Ultimately they speak of a psychic conception, and even of an extraterrestrial origin. The esoteric may be found in the sphere of occult and magical knowledge, and therefore in the hands of certain individuals or adepts.

Daniel Ruzo believed the monuments mark the general area of the caves and caverns that made possible the salvation of our humanity, and those previous, during the time of the great catastrophes, and were created by a humanity that lived before the time of the flood for which Noah built his Ark. These cultures arise from an earlier, forgotten culture, originating from proto-historical times, in which the same gods are represented. The earlier culture suffered the convulsions of the flood, and remained witness to an “Atlantean people”, writes Ruzo, “of which we have found the same traces in the Americas.”
