NAZI OCCULTISM AND IT’S CLOSE RELATIONSHIP TO BUDDHIST TANTRISM

Visionary fascism was, and indeed still is, exceptionally deeply fascinated by the Buddhocratic form of state. In the late thirties (as the various fascist systems bloomed in Europe and the whole world) Spencer Chapman, a traveler in Tibet, wrote that even in the days of the dictators one can only be amazed at what uncontested power the Dalai Lama possesses” (Chapman, 1940, p. 192). The idea of kingship of the world, the uniting of spiritual and secular power in a single person, the ideology of war in the Shambhala myth, the uncompromisingly andocentric orientation, the tantric vision of the feminine, the whole occult ambience and much more besides were specifically adopted by several fascist ideologists and welded together into an aggressive myth. As we shall soon see, entire fascist systems are based upon the adoption of Tibetan/tantric doctrines.


The Fourteenth Dalai Lama’s National Socialist Friends

As depressing as it may be for the Nobel peace prize winner’s followers, there has been continuous contact between the Dalai Lama and the far right wing and former national socialists (Nazis). His close friendship with his German mentor, Heinrich Harrer has become the most well-known of these. It caused a small scandal in 1997-1998 when, after years of research, the Austrian journalist, Gerald Lehner, succeeded in making public Harrer’s “brown-shirt” (i.e., German fascist) past, which the latter had been able to keep secret for many years. Harrer is not just anybody. He is one of the best-known international authors and has sold over four million books in 57 languages (mostly about Tibet and the Fourteenth Dalai Lama).

The Austrian mountain climber and competition skier joined the SS on April 1, 1938 and in the same year received instructions to climb Nanga Parbat in the Himalayas after an official meeting with Adolf Hitler. Heinrich Himmler, himself most interested in occult phenomena is said by Harrer to have offered him a Tibet expedition. In 1942, the Reichsführer of the SS (Himmler) ordered the creation of the Sven Hedin Institut für Innerasienforschung [Sven Hedin Institute for Central Asian Research]. This educational establishment had combined esoteric, scientific, and racial studies goals.

It was completely in this vein that Himmler was interested in occult doctrines from “mysterious Tibet”, and assumed — probably under the influence of theosophical ideas — that a “race with Nordic blood” existed there, oppressed by the English and Chinese, and waiting for their liberation by the Germans. Himmler’s “advisor”, reports the German magazine Spiegel, “… and the scientist Ernst Schäfer believed that Tibet was the cradle of humanity, the refuge of an ‘Aryan root race’, where a priestly caste had created a mysterious kingdom of Shambhala — decorated with the Buddhist symbol of the wheel of teaching, a swastika. In 1934 Schäfer set out on the first of two expeditions financed by the SS to track down remnants of the ‘Nordic intellectual’ nobility” (Spiegel, 16/1998, p. 111).

In sanscrit "Buddhist" means the religion of the Aryan, it's highly possible the religion was created by our race after the Aryan invasion of India! This would mean that it would not be the Nazis copying the Buddhists but rather the Buddhists copying one of our creeds after the fall of one of our many civilisations.

I feel that I don't know enough about all this -- I mean the esoterica surrounding National Socialism. I was thinking of getting a book on the NS expedition to Tibet (sponsored by Himmler -- who was into that sort of stuff), so I should perhaps read it.

True, the original Buddhism of Siddharta was only meant for the Ariyas ("the nobles"), and it was a reaction against the degeneration of the Hinduism of the period. It was only later that it became a popular religion, and lost much of its Ariya character.

A good book to learn about this original Ariya Buddhism would be "The Doctrine of Awakening" by Julius Evola. This internetpage sums up much of the books content: http://www.ariyabuddhism.com/pages/1/index.htm

A good starting-book on Esoteric NS would be Black Sun by Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke. He has chapters on most forms of racialist religions/cults, and though I suspect he is an anti, he is both fair in his presentation, and ambivalent towards multiculturalism.

I can also warmly recommend Savitri Devi, the NS Hinduist. She is not for everybody, but if she is for you I can guarantee that the effect of her works on your worldview will be like a revelation ;)

Thank you Oskorei, Savitri Devi appears to be highly interesting!

Speaking of "esoteric Hitlerism", has anyone studied the doctrines of Miguel Serrano?

Any info on the esoteric mystical side of NS, where to get books, booklets and such are appreciated.

I use to buy from the Swedish section, Svensk Hednisk Front. I think I will get a copy of Tyr(myth-culture-tradition) nr 2, the first issue had many interesting articles.

Seems to be an Internal Server Error on sales page right now.

Yeah, we're having some server-trouble at the moment, but I'm sure it will be fixed shortly.
