On The Rise and Fall Of The
Third Reich
[Index of 15 parts]

One of the more obvious examples of a nation "dazzled by the desire for domination, enslaved through those vain ambitions which are conceived by pride" is Germany. And as the National Deva wrote through H.K. Challoner years ago, "Men rise within its heart, inspired by the Dark Forces. . ."

We have in hand a clip from Life Magazine for April 24, 1970, sent to us by an Associate. He marked one quote as an interesting example of the Dark Forces guiding Adolf Hitler, the beast in the Germans responding to the Beast overshadowing their Fuhrer:

"At his height, (Hitler's) power was almost diabolic. Jaeger has never forgotten one rally. 'We were in a hall,' he recalls, 'thousands and thousands of people, and something monstrous happened. There was a mass suggestion at work, a fluid in the air, and everybody, men as well as women, abruptly began to tremble and weep and howl, and all the while Hitler sat up there without saying a word, without stirring, just staring at them.'"

Adolf (Schickelgruber) Hitler was in trance, of course. He was the medium by which the Satanic forces of the Earth-Moon System expected to usher in their inverted image of the Aquarian Age. How did Adolf get this diabolical power? You won't find the answers in the popular exposes of Nazism, nor in the memoirs of Hitler's survivors at the Nuremberg trials, including the excellent ones of the latest to publish, Albert Speer, reviewed in that same Life Magazine. It was Black Magick that really brought Hitler to the top and only a magician could make an intelligent appraisal of what was going on behind the Three-D curtain.

A valiant attempt along this line was made several years ago by two Frenchmen, Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier. Their book, "The Dawn of Magic", has scattered through it the significant items we seek, published at five shillings in London in 1964 by Panther Books, Ltd., 108 Brompton Road, SW3.

"In the autumn of 1923 the death took place in Munich of a singular personage -- poet, playwright, journalist and Bohemian -- named Dietrich Eckhardt. With his lungs injured by mustard-gas, he addressed a prayer of a very personal nature, before he died, to a black meteorite which he used to call his Mecca Stone, and had left it in his will to Professor Oberth, one of the pioneers of astronautics. 'He had just sent a lengthy manuscript to his friend Haushofer. After his death the Thule Society (such was his prayer) [5] would continue to exist and would soon change the world and all life upon it.

"In 1920 Dietrich Eckardt and another member of the Thule Society, the architect Alfred Rosenberg, had made the acquaintance of Hitler. Their first meeting took place in Wagner's house at Bayreuth, and for the next three years they are to be the constant companions of the little Reichswehr corporal, dominating all his thought and acts. Konrad Heiden (in his 'Adolph Hitler') wrote that 'Eckardt undertook the spiritual formation of Adolph Hitler'. He also taught him to write and speak. His instruction was given on two levels: one being concerned with the 'secret doctrine', and the other with the doctrine of propaganda. . . In July 1923 Eckardt became one of the seven founder-members of the National-Socialist Party. Seven: a sacred figure. In the autumn, before he died, he told his colleagues: Follow Hitler. He will dance, but it is I who called the tune. We have given him the means of communicating with Them. Do not mourn for me; I shall have influenced history more than any other German. . . "

Members of our own Inner Circle, through Mark Probert, have told us that Hitler was a practicing magician. Now we have it confirmed from one of the Fuhrer's biographers!

"The legend of Thule is as old as the Germanic race. It was supposed to be an island that had disappeared somewhere in the extreme North. Off Greenland? or Labrador? Like Atlantis, Thule was thought to have been the magic centre of a vanished civilization. Eckardt and his friends believed that not all the secrets of Thule had perished. Beings intermediate between Man and other intelligent beings from Beyond, would place at the disposal of the Initiates a reservoir of forces which could be drawn upon to enable Germany to dominate the world again and be the cradle of the coming race of Superman which would result from mutations of the human species. . . It would seem that it was under influence of Karl Haushofer that the group took on its true character of a society of Initiates in communion with the Invisible, and became the magic centre of the Nazi movement.

"Hitler was born in Braunau-am-Inn, on 20th April, 1889, at 5:30 p.m. at No. 219 Salzburger Vorstadt. As an Austro-Bavarian frontier town, where two great German states met, it became for Hitler in later life a symbolic city. . . "

So Hitler was an Aries, on the cusp between Aries and Taurus, Fire and Earth. No wonder he oscillated so wildly between the two extremes, and embraced the Fire-and-Ice philosophy of that anthropology fanatic, Hoerbiger, who was a source of inspiration to members of the Thule group. To see what Astrology has to say about people born on the 20th of April, we turn to Zolar's "It's All In The Stars": "You possess a profound mind alternately swayed by principle and ambition. You show a great deal of adaptability and unusual aptitude for imitation. One aspect of this Horoscope indicates a tendency [6] to become extremely temperamental and excitable when anyone interferes with your plans and ambitions. You are a born leader and want to have your own way in all matters. Develop tact and diplomacy."

That reads like a description of the ideal medium for the black robed, black-hearted, white-skinned (or yellow-skinned?) monsters who were planning on using German might to make the world over in their own evil image. How evil that image was could only be described by their initiate, Hitler, in conversations with close associates. The governor of Danzig, Rauschning, heard some of this at first hand and second hand. From "The Dawn of Magic":

"A person close to Hitler told me that he wakes up in the night screaming and in convulsions. He calls for help and appears to be half paralyzed. He is seized with panic that makes him tremble until the bed shakes. He utters confused and unintelligible sounds, gasping, as if on the point of suffocation. The same person described to me one of those fits, with details that I would refuse to believe had I not complete confidence in my informant.

"Hitler was standing up in his room, swaying and looking all round him as if he were lost. 'It's he, it's he,' he moaned. 'He's come for me!' His lips were white; he was sweating profusely. Suddenly he uttered a string or meaningless figures, then words and scraps of sentences (his obsessive teachers, practicing for the spell-binding oratory that was to come? RHC.) It was terrifying. He used strange expressions strung together in bizarre disorder. Then he relapsed again into silence, but his lips still continued to move. He was then given a friction and something to drink. Then suddenly he screamed: 'There! There! Over in the corner! He is there!' All the time stamping with his feet and shouting. To quieten him he was assured that nothing extraordinary had happened, and finally he gradually calmed down. . . "

In talking to Hitler himself, Rauschning discovered that he was much concerned about the development of a German Superman, by mutation. But as Pauwels and Bergier observe, "Rauschning, not possessing the key to such strange preoccupations, interpreted Hitler's remarks in terms of a stock-breeder interested in the amelioration of German blood.

"'All you can do,' Rauschning replied, 'is to assist Nature and shorten the road to be followed! It is Nature herself who must create for you a new species. Up til now the breeder has only rarely succeeded in developing mutations in animals -- that is to say, creating himself new characteristics.'

"'The new man is living amongst us now! He is here!' exclaimed Hitler triumphantly. 'Isn't that enough for you? I will tell you a secret. I have seen the new man. He is intrepid and cruel. I was afraid of him.'

"'In uttering these words,' added Rauschning, 'Hitler was [7] trembling in a kind of ecstasy.'

To the Governor of Danzig there was no doubt about it. Hitler was a medium in touch with demoniacal powers; and Pauwels and Bergier observed: "Occultism teaches that, after concluding a pact with hidden forces, the members of the Group cannot evoke these forces save through the intermediary of a magician who, in turn, can do nothing without a medium. It would seem, therefore, that Hitler must have been the medium and Haushofer the magician."

Then they quote another of Hitler's close associates, Strasser: "Listening to Hitler one suddenly has a vision of one who will mankind to glory. . . A light appears in a dark window. A gentleman with a comic little moustache turns into an archangel. . . Then the archangel flies away. . . and there is Hitler sitting down, bathed in sweat with glassy eyes. . ."


Karl Haushofer was a German general of World War I, with some very interesting Oriental connections. Though a devout Roman Catholic he was tied in with Northern Buddhism and that underground priesthood centered in Agharta. Of Hitler's genius Pauwels and Bergier had this to say: "Haushofer was born in 1869. He paid several visits to India and the Far East, and was sent (by whom? The German General Staff? the Church?) to Japan, where he learned the language. He believed that the German people originated in Central Asia, and that it was the Indo-Germanic race which guaranteed the permanence, nobility and greatness of the world. While in Japan, Haushofer is said to have been initiated into one of the most important secret Buddhist societies and to have sworn, if he failed in his 'mission', to commit suicide in accordance with the time-honoured ceremonial (and to shut his mouth forever before any of his occult secrets could be wrested from him!)

"In 1914 Haushofer, then a youthful General, has known for his extraordinary gift of being able to predict events before they occurred: the hour when the enemy would attack, the places where shells would fall, storms and political changes in the countries about which he knew nothing. Did Hitler also possess this gift of clairvoyance or was it Haushofer who communicated to him his own visions?"

For those who could see far into the future, Haushofer's visits to Japan, and his initiation into the Black Lodge of Agharta, foreshadowed the Rome-Berlin-Tokyo Axis of World War II!

"After the first World War, Haushofer returned to his studies and seems to have specialized exclusively in political geography. He founded the 'Geo-Political Review' and published a number of books. . . Behind the Geo-politician there was another personality -- a disciple of Schopenhauer who had taken up Buddhism, an admirer of Ignatius of Loyola (founder of the Jesuits) who wanted to govern men, a mystic in search of hidden realities, a man of great culture and intense psychic sensitivity. It seems that it was Haushofer who [8] actually chose the swastika as an emblem."

And the two Frenchmen should have noted that Haushofer chose a Swastika rotating in a counter-clockwise direction, denoting devolution, or evil. They link up the hooked cross with the Russian Court and with Thibet, pointing out that "In Berlin there was a Thibetan monk, nicknamed the 'man with the green glovesā€˜, who had correctly foretold in the press, on three occasions, the number of Hitlerian deputies elected to the Reichstag, and who was regularly visited by Hitler. He was said by the Initiates to 'possess the keys' to the Kingdom of Agharthi'.

"This brings us back again to Thule. At the same time as 'Mein Kampf', the Russian, Ossendowski, published a book entitled 'Men, Beasts and Gods', in which appeared, for the first time in public, the names of Shamballah and Agharthi -- names which will be heard again from the lips of those for the 'Ahnenerbe' (pre-Nazi group) at the Nuremberg Trial. The year is 1925."


Pauwels and Bergier are not quite as familiar with Theosophy as they appear to be, from the glib references to it in "The Dawn of Magic". H.P. Blavatsky makes reference to it in "The Secret Doctrine", written in 1887! On page 319, Vol. II, 1947 edition, she writes: "Lemuria's elect, had taken shelter on the sacred Island, (now the 'fabled' Shamballah, in the Gobi Desert) while some of their accursed races, separating from the main stock, now lived in the jungles and underground. . ."

Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater make many references to Shamballa in "Man, Whence, How and Whither", first published in 1913. They write that the building of this great White City on an island in the sea which is now the Gobi Desert began about 60,000 B.C., by Atlantean Toltecs who were really the progenitors of the Aryan Root-Race.

"The whole building was a matter of many hundreds of years, but the White Island, when complete, was a marvel. The Island itself sloped up to a central point, and the builders took advantage of this. They built stupendous Temples on it, all of white marble with inlaid work of gold, and these covered the whole island, making it a single sacred city. These rose towards the huge Temple in the centre, which was crowned with the minarets and arches mentioned above, with the lotus-bud dome in the middle. The dome was over the great Hall, wherein the Four Kumaras appeared on special occasions, great religious festivals and ceremonies of national importance.

"From a distance -- say at the end of one of the City streets, (on the mainland) ten miles away -- the effect of the white and golden city, like a white dome set in the midst of the blue Gobi Sea, all the buildings seeming to spring upwards into the clear air towards the centre, and to be crowned with the fairy dome, almost floating in the atmosphere, was extraordinarily beautiful and [9] impressive. Rising above it in the air, as in a balloon, and looking down, you could see the White City like a circle, divided by a cross, for the streets were arranged as four radii, meeting at the central Temple. Looked at from the north-west, from the promontory of the earlier settlement, an extraordinary effect was produced, which could hardly have been accidental. The whole looked like the Great Eye of Masonic symbolism, being foreshortened so that the curves became cylindrical, and the darker lines of the city on the mainland made the iris."

Flying Saucers were unthought of and unheard of in Leadbeater's time, yet here is an early hint of huge, man-made symbols on the surface of the earth, deliberately created to have significance to visitors from Venus and other planets approaching earth from outer space.

"Both inside and outside the Temples on the White Island were adorned with many carvings," Leadbeater continues. "A large number of these contained Masonic symbols, for Masonry inherits its symbols from the Mysteries, and all Aryan Mysteries were derived from this ancient centre of Initiation. In one room attached to the central Temple, apparently used for teaching, there was a series of carvings, beginning with the physical atom and going on to the chemical atoms, arranged in order, and with explanatory lines marking the various combinations. Verily, there is nothing new under the sun."

Eventually the great Central Asian civilization came to an end, as every civilization must under the Great Law, its physical structures and outmoded institutions destroyed by great cataclysms.

But the supra-physical White Island, Shamballa, remains intact on the physical-etheric plane, the mecca of thousands of initiates on the right-hand Path and "over it brood the mighty Presences who had, and still have, Their earthly dwelling-place on the sacred White Island. . ."


Ossendowski makes only passing reference to the mysterious underground city of Agharta in Thibet, headquarters of the Tashi Lama; but the Mahatmas of the Himalayas saw to it that more detailed information of this focus of evil, idol and ideal of the leaders of the Nazi party, was released to the world. Their agent in the flesh was an Englishman, Ted Illion. Eight years after the publication of the Russian's book, Illion was training himself to make a personal exploration of the remote land in the Himalayas, disguised as a Thibetan. His spectacular forced marches and prolonged exposures to the elements, during trips to Iceland and Sweden, were well publicized in the English press in 1933.

Of the underground city in the Valley of Mystery he knew nothing at the time. The existence of this super-secret headquarters for Northern Buddhism was revealed to him only after he was in the hermit kingdom of the Lamas. As he describes it in his book, [10] "Darkness Over Tibet", it was only after he had won the confidence of a Tibetan girl that he heard of the Valley of Mystery. This was while they were spectators at an interminable public religious festival at a monastery.

Illion and the girl, Dolma, got into a discussion of metaphysics, during which she mentioned her spiritual teacher, Narbu, member of the occult order at Agharta and a Tibetan aristocrat. When the girl gave Illion a letter of introduction to Narbu and urged him to visit the occultist, the Englishman realized this was no accident. His visit to Narbu in his home was favorably received. They became friends. Narbu felt this stranger should join the occult order to which he belonged, drew a map of the exact location of the Valley of Mystery, and gave Illion that along with a proper letter of introduction to the Tashi Lama, Mani Rimpochte.


Agharta would have been overlooked by the casual observer of the Valley of Mystery. The only indication of its presence was low railings surrounding the glass-covered openings which let light in to the many underground buildings. He was finally let in, given quarters and informed of the daily routines of the place.

Mani Rimpochte, the Exalted Jewel, King of the World, was not there but expected the next day. Since this was 1934 the Prince of Evil was probably consolidating his hold on Germany and the Nazi leaders, inspiring them telepathically with dreams and visions of world conquest.

"I will tell you a secret," said Hitler to Rauschning of the intrepid and cruel monster guiding him (quoted in "Dawn of Magic"), "I am founding an Order." He spoke of the Burgs where the first initiation was to take place. "It is from there that the second stage will emerge -- the stage of Man-God, when Man will be the measure and centre of the world. The Man-God, that Splendid being, will be an object of worship. But there are other stages about which I am not permitted to speak. . ."

Then Pauwels and Bergier quote the comments of one of their fellow countrymen on Hitler, Denis de Rougemont: "Some people think from having experienced in his presence a feeling of horror and an impression of some supernatural power that he is the seat of 'Thrones, Dominations and Powers', by which St. Paul meant those secondary spirits which can descend into any ordinary man and occupy him like a garrison. I have heard him pronounce one of his great speeches. Where do the superhuman powers he shows on these occasions come from? . . "

Not from the Norse Gods of old pagan Germany but from an underground city in Tibet. And the June purge of 1934 among the Nazis eliminated these, like Strasser, who saw Nazism as a rather narrow nationalistic and socialistic movement into something much larger. (Continued in the next Journal.)
