The Ark of the Covenant is the biblical vessel in which the stone tablets baring the ten commandments given to Moses on Mount Sinai were kept. It is claimed that the Ark still exists and is kept under guard in a chapel within the holy city of Aksum (Axum) in Ethiopia.
"Apollonius, a contemporary of Jesus of Nazareth, was, like him, an enthusiastic founder of a new spiritual school. Perhaps less metaphysical and more practical than Jesus, less tender and perfect in his nature, he nevertheless inculcated the same quintessence of spirituality, and the same high moral truths." – Helena Blavatsky 1877.
