Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
Lived: 12 August 1831 – 8 May 1891
Major figure of the New Age movement
Founder of Theosophy
A religion established in the United States during the late 19th century drawn predominantly from Blavatsky's writings. Categorized by scholars of religion as both a new religious movement and as part of the occultist stream of Western esotericism, it draws upon both older European philosophies such as Neoplatonism and Asian religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism. Popularized the idea of Eastern Occultism and the “Aryan Race” among other things.
Osiris is the doctrine
Isis is the church
The child Horus is the body of illumined Initiates.
An Emblem of Theosophy
Blavatsky 1 - In Search of Occult Knowledge
Born in 1831 Russia to an rich aristocratic family, Helena Petrovna von Hahn and family survived a cholera epidemic and other shocks of the time in relative luxury. At 17, she reluctantly married a 40-something government official named Blavatsky, attempted multiple escapes from their new home, then made a final escape on what would become a 9-year expedition around the world in search of knowledge.
Virtually all of her travels are unsubstantiated, with no contemporary records known to confirm her whereabouts during this time. She claims to have visited Tibet, India, and other exotic locations, and to have met and gleaned esoteric knowledge from wise learned men of these areas.
Biographer Marion Meade commented on Blavatsky's tales of Tibet and various other adventures by stating that "hardly a word of this appears to be true."
Blavatsky 2 - Henry Steel Olcott
Blavatsky makes her way to America, where she searches for communication with other occult organizations and investigate paranormal phenomena. She finds conflict with a few and is more or less on her own, until in 1874 she meets a former Civil War Colonel named Henry Olcott. They were both personally investigating the séances of the allegedly psychic Eddy Brothers. Olcott would be a lifelong friend and help her co-found Theosophy.
From Bill Cooper’s Mystery Babylon Series, Page 57 - Hour 6: The New World Order and Freemasonry (aired February 18th, 1993)
"Mr. [Manly P.] Hall has written a book, entitled Lectures on Ancient Philosophy, in which he talks a great deal about the Masonic fraternity. This is his comment about the coming changes: 'A new day is dawning for Freemasonry. From the insufficiency of theology and the hopelessness of materialism, men are turning to seek the god of philosophy.'
"Notice that Mr. Hall has said that current 'theology', obviously current 'religion', has proven insufficient. Also, he feels that 'materialism,' meaning the right to private property, is also a failure. But more importantly, he points out that this new 'God' of the Freemasons is somehow different from the God of the Jews and Christians. As will be illustrated later, some of the
Masons believe that the God of the Bible is a God of evil.
"Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, perhaps the founder of the current New Age movement, has also determined that the Masons are somehow supportive of her religious views. She wrote this in her book, entitled The Secret Doctrine: '...at the end of the eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth centuries many Freemasons travelled to Tibet where they were initiated into the esoteric [defined as intended for or understood by only a chosen few, as an inner group of disciples or initiates] by an esoteric order of the Masters of wisdom.'
"It should be expected that she would support the Masonic fraternity. In 1875, she founded an organization called the Theosophical Society, basically dedicated to teaching the world about her new secret religion. One of the earliest members of that organization was Albert Pike, later to become the Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
"Albert Pike, who later became a 33rd degree Mason, the highest degree attainable, also saw that there were some significant changes coming, and that he was supportive of those changes. He wrote the following in his book, entitled Morals and Dogma: 'We can look on all the evils of the world and see that it is only the hour before sunrise, and that the light is coming.'
"[Now,] if Mr. Hall is right, the 'evils' that his fellow Mason Albert Pike saw are connected to current religion, and that which is coming is somehow different from these religious views. Mr. Hall, who as mentioned previously is another 33rd degree Mason, also wrote that a new day was coming, and that it was not too far into the future: 'A new light is breaking in the east [the significance of the location, 'the east', [I have already] pointed out [William Cooper: -- it is the point where the sun rises]] a more glorious day is at hand. The rule of the philosophic elect ~ the dream of the ages -- will yet be realized and is not too far distant.'
"So, Mr. Hall is also expecting that these changes are about to occur in the not too distant future.”
Blavatsky and the Swastika
Two versions of a “swastika” - Hindi origin and German Nazi
From The Occult History of the Third Reich, Part One: The Enigma of the Swastika, narrated by Patrick Allen
Swastika 1 - Progress
“The mission of Aryan man. The mystery of the blood. The soul of the race. These dogmas, fundamental to the Nazi vision, will lead Europe into the realms of nightmare. Their symbol is the swastika.
“The swastika was adopted by the Nazi party in 1920, but it was neither the party's invention nor its discovery. Since the end of the 19th century, the swastika had been spreading amongst the peoples of Europe, and everywhere it was a sign of a new and powerful force -- a deepening fascination with the arcane, the esoteric and the occult.
“The revival of the occult in Europe has its roots deep in the trauma of the Industrial Revolution. By the dawn of the 20th century, the lives of millions had been changed out of all recognition. Cities, the traditional centers of commerce and fashionable life, have been transformed into sprawling industrial slums. Yet, everywhere, the catchphrase is "progress." There is a widespread belief that a new world is coming, a world in which the ills of the past will be cured by science, by technology and by democracy.
“Many, far from welcoming the dawn of a new age, are deeply disturbed. With the Industrial Revolution had come a decline in the power of traditional authority. The political power of the landowner is waning in favor of a new class of industrialists and financiers. Hierarchy is being threatened by democracy. It appears to many as if the world of beauty and order is disintegrating before their very eyes. Worst of all, religion itself seems in mortal danger. Cherished beliefs, accepted as true for all time, are being questioned by science.
Swastika 2 - Deeper Knowledge
“The ancient Himalayan kingdom of Tibet. From the late 19th century Tibet is the mysterious and forbidding destination of a steady stream of travelers from the industrialized world. Many, disillusioned with the certainties of science, come in search of another deeper knowledge. One such traveler is a Russian adventuress and self-proclaimed telepath, Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.
“In 1888, Madame Blavatsky publishes a book, The Secret Doctrine, in which she claims that, deep in an underground Himalayan monastery, she has been shown an ancient occult text. In it will reveal the mystical secrets of the universe and the future course of human history. In The Secret Doctrine, Madame Blavatsky describes the universe as having fallen from pure spirit into base matter, darkness and chaos, but soon it will rise once more to reach the pinnacle of spirituality. Madame Blavatsky claims that this knowledge, and more, she has learned through initiation into the Mysteries of seven esoteric symbols. Of these seven symbols, one she believed to be more potent than any other: the symbol is the swastika.
“In Tibetan mythology, the swastika is the sign of Agni, the god of the sun, of fire and of creation. And always, with a clockwise or anti-clockwise, with a curved or straight arm, it is the symbol of good fortune.
“For Madame Blavatsky, each cycle of creation has associated with it seven stages of human evolution. Stages she calls "root races." The race which will begin once more, the ascent from darkness to the light of the spirit, she names, "Aryan." In the occult teachings of Madame Blavatsky, the sign of the Aryan is the swastika.
Swastika 3 - Romantic Revival
“The Nuremberg rally of 1934 has as its theme a mystical concept: the triumph of the will, homages paid to a fundamental dogma in the Nazi creed of the swastika. Pure will, the expression of the soul of the race, will overcome the forces of darkness and of chaos. 376 In the world of National Socialism, the race of light, of order and of the spirit, is the Aryan race. Decades before the swastika was adopted by the Nazi party, a periodical published in Germany by an American occult society [the Theosophical Society] became the first German publication to carry the swastika on its cover. The society's founder was Madame Helena Blavatsky. It would be the followers of Madame Blavatsky who would introduce to the peoples of Germany and Austria the occult doctrine of the Aryan.
“The Prussian-Austrian war of 1866 had left German-speaking Austrians an isolated minority and a predominantly Slavic Austria Hungary. By the early 20th century an intense longing has grown for unification with Germany. Hundreds of German-Austrian societies are founded, committed to the romantic revival of ancient Germanic mythology. A [folk] federation, with a membership of over 100,000 calling themselves the Germanen Bund, holds festivals bound to Germanic calendar, revives ancient rituals and appeals for unity in a new, spiritual German nationhood. The Germanen Bund was inspired by the writings of an Austrian mystic.
Swastika 4 - Runes
“Guido Von List, born in Vienna in 1848, claimed to have psychic visions of the past in which he was initiated into the secrets of the ancient Teutonic tribes. List's visions told him of a Germanic religion, the worship of the god, Wotan. His dream is to rediscover the occult heritage of its long banished priesthood. According to Norse legend the god-magician Wotan, leader of the dead heroes of Valhalla, had won by suffering a priceless store of esoteric knowledge. He had discovered the secret of the runes. List knew that the runes were the alphabet of a primitive system of writing, but to Germanic peoples from the 2nd century to the middle ages they were also magical symbols. Symbols which List believed possessed a deep esoteric meaning.
Feoh, the rune of wealth, wandering in destruction.
Ur, the rune of wild oxen, regeneration and sacrifice.
North [Nied?], the compulsion of fate.
Sieg [Sigil or Sowilo?], the rune of the sun and of victory.
Swastika 5 - The Fire Whisk
“To Guido Von List, runes were the key to the occult knowledge of the ancient Germanic peoples. Within a decade of his death in 1919, the runes would had become elements in a new language: the language of national socialism. The Sieg victory rune, emblem of the Hitler youth. The double Sieg, emblem of the Schutzstaffel, the SS. The Epel rune, symbol of Richard Walther Darré's ministry of agriculture, the rune of inheritance, the rune of German soil. The man [eolh?] rune, the rune of death which, in time, will replace the cross in the graveyards of the SS. Study of the runes is required of all SS officers. Of the many strange and mystical symbols which have found a place in the new order of National Socialism, one dominates all others.
“Guido Von List called the swastika, "The twice high holy secret of constant generation." He recounts a Nordic tale in which the god Mundelfori whisks the cosmos into being. The swastika is the fire-whisk, the very act of creation.”
Swastika 6 - The Aryan Man
“1914: The Great War. For the first time in history, the might of industry is unleashed on the battlefield. Nothing could have prepared the peoples of Europe for slaughter on such an unimaginable scale. As the war grinds on and casualties mount, front line soldiers on both sides of no-man's land take to the wearing of charms and amulets. In the ranks of Germans and Austrians, the most popular of all magic talismans is the swastika. The swastika medallions and amulets worn in the trenches of the Great War are based on the researches of Guido Von List. By now an influential and wealthy society devoted to the teachings of the master has already been formed in Vienna. It is the List Society, which supplies designs to the manufacturers of swastika talismans. The swastika, now spreading amongst the German armies, is fast becoming the emblem of militant German nationalism. But since 1908 it has acquired another even more ominous meaning. Shortly before the outbreak of the Great War, List had incorporated the occult teachings of Madame Helena Blavatsky into this own German mythology. Now he no longer refers to ancient Germans or Teutons. Instead the tribes who populate his visions he names, "Aryans." In Madame Blavatsky's writings, the Aryans are the race of upward spiritual evolution, the race whose sign is the swastika. In Hitler's Mein Kampf the meaning of the swastika to the Nazi party is made clear. "In the swastika," he writes, "we see the mission for the struggle of the victory of Aryan man."
Loose relations to Z, a prominent military symbol in the Ukraine-Russia conflict going on at present (2022).
Rajneesh’s Osho on Blavatsky
“I now bring in a woman. I have been thinking again and again to bring in a woman but the men were crowding at the door – very ungentlemanly! – and they won’t allow a woman in. And the woman who has somehow managed to enter… my God, what a woman! Madame Blah-Blah Blavatsky. That’s how I always call Blavatsky: Blah-Blah. She was great at writing blah-blah – writing everything about nothing, making mountains out of molehills. And I knew she would be the first woman to enter. She was a strong woman. She somehow managed to push aside all the Patanjalis, Kabirs, Badrayanas, and enter with her seven volumes of The Secret Doctrine. That is my fifth book. It is almost an encyclopedia, Encyclopedia Esoterica. Nobody, I think, can compete with Blavatsky as far as esotericism is concerned – except me of course; I can write seven hundred volumes. That’s why I have avoided speaking on The Secret Doctrine: because if I speak on the seven volumes of The Secret Doctrine then, Inshallah, God willing, I will produce seven hundred volumes, not less than that.
“It has been reported to me that I have already spoken three hundred and thirty-six books. My God! God is merciful – merciful because I don’t have to read them. I have not read any of them. But Blavatsky would have immediately made something out of it. That’s what I call esotericism. Three hundred and thirty-six: three-three-six, that means three plus three is six… sixty-six; six plus six is twelve… one plus two… again three! The moment you come to three then you cannot stop the esoteric; he has got the key. The esoteric will open doors you have never imagined. ‘Three’ is enough to open all doors, locked or unlocked.
“Blavatsky, poor woman – I pity her and love her too, in spite of her face, which is not lovable, not even likable, what to say of love! Her face could only be used to frighten children when they are doing something nasty. Blavatsky had a very ugly face – but I pity the woman: in the world of men, made by men, dominated by men, she is the only woman who asserted, dominated, and started the first religion ever by any woman… Theosophy. She competed with Buddha, Zarathustra, Mohammed, and I thank her for that. Somebody needed to do it. The man has to be put in his place. I thank her for that.
“The Secret Doctrine, although so full of esoteric bullshit, has many beautiful diamonds too and many lotuses. There is much rubbish in it because she was a collector. She went on collecting all kinds of rubbish from everywhere possible, without bothering whether it was useful or not. She was great at putting all that useless nonsense in a systematic way. A very systematic woman. But there are a few – sad to say only a few – diamonds here and there.”
ISHTAR - STAR QUEEN
Ishtar 1 - Intro
The Gods of Babylon exist in various forms and power structures. Many of the main attributes of the Gods are how they interact with humans on Earth.
Ishtar or Inanna - Goddess of Love, Sensuality, Fertility, and War - A broad array of powers and influences
Ishtar 2 - Queen of the Night
Perception of the ancient city of Babylon is heavily crafted by the Jewish Bible and the event of the ancient Tribes of Judah being captured and brought there as slaves. When Nebuchadnezzar II besieged Jerusalem around 600 BC, he destroyed the First Temple and dragged the peoples back to the Babylon.
As such, the customs and rituals that would eventually become what we know as Judaism today was heavily influenced by this period and by the cultures of the Babylonian Empire.
Babylon enjoyed such importance for such a long time, it was still the dominant city of the world when Alexander the Great died there (at age 33) in 323 BC. It has been around since at lease 3000 BC.
Ishtar 3 - Where Gods Dwell
The best and most expensive art from ancient times, particularly those made of Gold or other precious metals, are the most likely to not survive the eons intact. Through numerous generations, these are discovered and melted down. Clay tablets, while frail, have the advantage of being made of virtually worthless material, useless to plunderers.
The most important art of Gods were crafted with gold, but there were cheaper totems made of clay or wood as charms for common people and businesses.
Some, such as the Louvre stele (pictured below), are carved from Basalt, which had to be purchased and transported at great expense. The stele below is Hammurabi’s Code, and above that is a relief of the King (left) being given the tools of Justice from Shamash or Utu, the Sun God.
Hammurabi stele on display in France at the Louvre.
Meli-Shipak II on a kudurru-Land presenting his daughter Ḫunnubat-Nanaya to the goddess Nanaya. Here the Star of Ishtar is shown alongside the solar disk of her brother Shamash (Sumerian Utu) and the crescent moon of her father Sin (Sumerian Nanna) on a boundary stone of Meli-Shipak II, dating to the twelfth century BC. [You’ll notice the Star and the Sun have an identical core.]
The star of Inanna usually had eight points, though the exact number of points sometimes varies. Six-pointed stars also occur frequently, but their symbolic meaning is unknown. The eight-pointed star was Inanna's most common symbol, and in later times became the most common symbol of the goddess Ishtar, Inanna's East Semitic counterpart. It seems to have originally borne a general association with the heavens, but, by the Old Babylonian Period, it had come to be specifically associated with the planet Venus, with which Ishtar was identified. Starting during this same period, the star of Ishtar was normally enclosed within a circular disc.
During later times, slaves who worked in Ishtar's temples were sometimes branded with the seal of the eight-pointed star. On boundary stones and cylinder seals, the eight-pointed star is sometimes shown alongside the crescent moon, which was the symbol of Sin, god of the Moon, and the rayed solar disk, which was a symbol of Shamash, the god of the Sun.
The rosette was another important symbol of Ishtar which had originally belonged to Inanna. During the Neo-Assyrian Period, the rosette may have actually eclipsed the eight-pointed star and become Ishtar's primary symbol. The temple of Ishtar in the city of Aššur was adorned with numerous rosettes.
So we see Ishtar is associated with…
“Morning Star” or the “Star in the East” or the Star of Bethlehem
The Sun (or a False Sun)
In Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut (a movie about elitist secret societies) the Star of Ishtar was shown prominently, as were many star-inspired Christmas lights and decorations. The Christmas Star aka the Star of Bethlehem also shares form with that of Ishtar.
In the deep recesses of 4chan, there exists a General Thread (an ongoing internet forum) where men and women discuss how to summon Succubae for their material and sexual desires.
There is an accepted pantheon of well-known Succubus personalities, such as…
Lilith - the first wife of Adam who left the Garden of Eden and became the mother of demons and the supreme empress of Hell. She is also credited as the creator of the Turok-Han, an ancient species of vampire, and is thus regarded as the Mother of Vampires.
Agrat bat Mahlat - is a demon and succubus in Jewish mythology and although female, is ranked as the king of the demons who takes the form of a beautiful woman that comes to men in their dreams to seduce them into sexual intercourse.
These are considered the Four Angels of Whoredom.
There are other generals, such as the Aphrodite General, and yes, an Ishtar General, dedicated to the Reverence of some Goddess-type figure, a mythological divinity of feminine nature that drive men to a higher plane of existence.
These are the prevalent icons of our day, and one must wonder if the memes and pornographic energy were in effect to Goddesses of past times. It begs the question: What is Worship?
