Vladimir returns to Novosibirsk and goes to the gritty streets of Moscow, struggling to understand and communicate his experience with Anastasia in the forest. Pulling his life back from the brink of collapse, Megre gets help at just the right time, ensuring that Anastasia’s message is accurately recorded.
Recounting more of his three days with Anastasia, Megre introduces an all-Earth holiday on 23 July (now celebrated in parts of Russia), recounts the Christian invasion of Celtic Europe, and reveals the ancient method of preparing medicinal cedar oil.
Anastasia’s grandfather explains how she healed Vladimir with cedar oil, when he had been sick the previous year. Grandfather explains the appearance of a ball of light energy next to Anastasia when she was a young girl—the ball of energy she calls “Good”. He cites a poet whose songs seem to confirm what others had suspected: the energy is an appearance of the intellect of nature, or God.
The book ends with an appeal to Russians to respect and honour their own local sacred sites rather than travelling to see foreign ones, an idea which could apply equally in every country of the world.
