NEW YORK, N.Y. — At the end of March 2008 from the Himalayas in Nepal will start a special expedition to the summit of Mount Everest. The participants of the Himalayan Message Project expedition will be carrying the most precious cargo in the History of Mankind – the Book of human dreams, hopes and joys, the words of commitments, prayers and messages sent by people from all over the world.

Imagine your prayer, your list of commitments, your message to the world resting forever in the highest part of our planet.

For the first time in the history of Mankind we will participate in the most incredible project where messages from people from all over the world will be written in one single Book and carried to the highest point of our planet, to Mount Everest to rest there forever.

The mission of the project is to unite all the people regardless of their origin, nationality, religious or philosophical beliefs in the name of the simplest but at the same time the most beautiful values such as Truth, Love and Peace, Social Equality and Respect, Understanding and Kindness, in the name of human dreams and hopes and thus to give them all an opportunity of leaving those few words especially precious and important to them in that incredible place.

When you are standing on the top of Mount Everest of the Himalayan Mountains you know that nobody else is standing higher. The magic of that incredible experience has made many undertake the hardships of two-three year training to become a participant of an over 60-day expedition to the summit. The majestic beauty of the place compensates all the hardships. Everybody who reaches the summit speaks of a wonderful feeling incomparable to anything else.

Most of us may never be able to reach the summit of the Earth by ourselves. However, now you do not have to climb Mount Everest to experience the adventure of your life. Thanks to the Himalayan Message Project for the first time in the History of Mankind you will be able to have a tiny part of yourself placed in that special place forever. Everyone can write either a prayer or a message to the future generations or that something what is especially precious and important to him and we will place it in the Himalayan Message Book that will be hermetically sealed in a metal trunk and transported to Nepal to start its long journey to the summit.

At the end of May 2008 the Book will finally rest in the snow white tranquility of Mount Everest as a symbol of hopes, joys and dreams of those who lived on the Planet Earth at the beginning of the twenty first century.

Everyone who would like to send his message to the Himalayan Message Book can find all the necessary information and instructions at
