The Great Uighur Empire

James Churchward wrote about the Great Uighur Empire in the 1926 book, The Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Man and the 1931 books, The Children of Mu and The Lost Continent of Mu. The purpose of this page is to replicate the text about the Great Uighur Empire as written by James Churchward in The Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Man.

From the The Lost Continent of Mu Motherland of Man(1926)

106 1I think the Uighur records will be all that is necessary
2to convince the most skeptical mind that it is clearly
3proven by symbols alone that Mu was the motherland of
4man; but as an old Hindu saying goes:
5"It is easier to snatch a pearl from the teeth of a croco-
6dile, or to twist an angry, venomous serpent around one's
7head like a garland of flowers, without incurring danger,
8than to make an ignorant or obstinate person change
9his mind."
10The Uighur was the principal colonial empire belong-
11ing to Mu at the time of the Biblical "Flood," which
12destroyed its eastern half.
13Chinese legends tell that the Uighurs were at the height
14of their civilization about 17,000 years ago. This date
15agrees with geological phenomena.
16The Uighur Empire stretched its powerful arms from
17the Pacific Ocean across Central Asia and into Eastern
18Europe from the Caspian Sea on. This was before the Brit-
19ish Isles became separated from the continent of Europe.
20The southern boundary of the Uighur Empire was
21along the northern boundaries of Cochin China, Burma,
22India, and Persia, and this was before the Himalayas and
23the other Asiatic mountains were raised.
24Their northern boundary extended into Siberia, but
25how far there is no record to tell. Remains of their cities
26have been found in the southern parts of Siberia.
27Eventually the Uighurs extended themselves into
28Europe around the western and northern shores of the
29Caspian Sea, as related in a very ancient Hindu record;
30from here they continued in through Central Europe to
31its western boundary, Ireland.

1071They settled in northern Spain, northern France, and
2far down into the Balkan region. The late archaeological
3discoveries in Moravia are Uighur remains, and the evi-
4dences on which ethnologists have based their theories
5that man originated in Asia have been marks left by the
6advancing Uighurs in Europe.
7The history is the Uighurs is the history of the Aryans.
8Ethnologists have classed certain white races as Aryans
9which are not Aryans at all, but belong totally differ-
10ent line of colonization.
11The capital city of the Uighurs was where the ruins of
12Khara Khoto now stand in the Gobi Desert. At the time
13of the Uighur Empire the Gobi Desert was an exceedingly
14fertile area of land.
15The Uighurs had reached a high state of civilization
16and culture; they knew astrology, mining, the textile in-
17dustries, architecture, mathematics, agriculture, writing,
18reading, medicine, etc. They were experts in decorative
19art on silk, metals, and wood, and they made statues of
20gold, silver, bronze, and clay; and this was before the his-
21tory of Egypt commenced.
22About one-half of the Uighur Empire was destroyed
23before Mu went down, the other half subsequent to Mu's
25Professor Kozloff unearthed a tomb 50 feet below the
26surface at Khara Khota and in it found wonderful treas-
27ures, which he photographed, not being allowed to dis-
28turb or take anything away. Through the courtesy
29and kindness of the Sunday American I have obtained the
30Loan of some of these pictures, two of which I here repro-
31duce with their decipherings, as they are symbolical. I

An Uighur Queen and her consort

Vajra Picture
Of later date than that shown in the hand of the Queen. Both show the trident
1think I am safe in believing that these pictures represent
2a time between 16,000 and 18,000 years ago.
3These pictures are symbolical, the various symbols tell-
4ing who they are and what they are. In the orginal they
5are paintings on silk and represent a queen and her consort
6in a sitting posture. I will now pick out the symbols of
7the Queen. On her head is a three-pointed crown with a
8disc in the center with three sets of rays emanating from
9it. Behind her body is a large disc, the sun. At the back of
10her head is a smaller disc, an inferior sun. The large disc
11symbolizes Mu, the small disc the Uighur Colonial Em-
12pire. The crown on her head, a sun with rays on one half
13only, shows the escutcheon of a colonial empire. In her left
14hand she carries a scepter, the ends of which are in the
15form of a trident - three points - the Motherland's nu-
17Her seat is a full-blown sacred lotus, the floral symbol
18of the Motherland, so that she is depicted as sitting in the
19lap of and being upheld by Mu, the Motherland. Her
20consort does not carry a scepter, nor has he a sun with rays,
21but in its place a sphere. His crown also shows the
22Motherland's numeral.
23Kosloff had pictures of various scepters. This illustra-

2hand, and of later date, but symbolically reads the same,
3the ends being divided into three giving the numeral of
4the Motherland.
5Thus we see the symbols of Asia, America, South Sea
6Islands and New Zealand all agreeing in the tale they tell.
7Could anything be more definite or convincing-unless
8we could get our old forefathers to rise from their graves,
9to tell us by word of mouth what happened to them in
10the land of Mu?
