" When you study the writings, stories and remains of the civilization of a land called Kangleipak, you sense ‘the existence of Lai’ of the ancient Meetei civilization. That’s when you experience yourself at a gateway, from where you communicate to an existence beyond the existence of Humankind "
Meetei Civilization flourishes in the ancient land of Kangleipak, which now belongs to the north-eastern region of India bordering Burma. It is a civilization still unknown to the world.
Its ancient script epitomizes the advanced nature of its civilization. The form, structure and phonology reveal the understanding of structure of human physiology. Its ancient writing, Puya, records their ancient knowledge on a widely varying subject like astrology, astronomy, genetics, medicine, human physiology, predictions, origin of life and the universe, and secrets of life and death. But most importantly, it writes about the mingling and relation between Lai (God) and Human.
Even today, the mingling between the two can be witnessed during Lai Haraoba (Festivity of God), also occasionally during the phenomenal encountering and communication between Lai and their descendants.
Withstanding the burning of Puya in 17th century, many mentions of this ancient writing still continue to exist in this land. The medicine of this ancient civilization is one such inheritance from the Lai (read ancestor God). The descendant still continues to treat various modern diseases with the healing power of this medicine.
