Savitri Devi

Savitri Devi (1905–1982) is one of the most original and influential National Socialist thinkers of the post-World War II era. Born Maximine Julia Portaz in Lyons, France, she was of English, Greek, and Italian ancestry and described her nationality as “Indo-European.” She earned Master’s degrees in philosophy and chemistry and a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Lyons. Her books include A Warning to the Hindus (1939), L’Etang aux lotus (The Lotus Pond) (1940), A Son of God: The Life and Philosophy of Akhnaton, King of Egypt (1946), later republished as Son of the Sun (1956), Akhnaton: A Play (1948), Gold in the Furnace (1952), The Lightning and the Sun (1958), Pilgrimage (1958), Impeachment of Man (1959), Long-Whiskers and the Two-Legged Goddess (1965), Souvenirs et réflexions d’une Aryenne (Memories and Reflections of an Aryan Woman) (1976), and And Time Rolls On: The Savitri Devi Interviews (2005).

Paganismo indio:
la última expresión viva de la belleza aria

Dev Diwali 3872,591 words

Otra palabra para el Hinduismo, tal vez incluso más expresiva, podría ser la de “paganismo hindú”.

Los misioneros cristianos llaman “paganos” a todos aquellos que no son ni cristianos, ni musulmanes, ni judíos; es decir, todos aquellos cuya tradición religiosa nada tiene que ver con la Biblia ni la tradición judía. Aceptamos el término porque es apropiado; remarca algún tipo de similitud entre todas las religiones de credo del pasado y las del presente.  Read more …

341 words / 61:27

What follows is a gift, an act of conservatorship, and a crowd-sourcing appeal.

Many readers of And Time Rolls On: The Savitri Devi Interviews have asked me what Savitri Devi’s voice sounded like. Although I cannot make the original ATRO interview tapes available, I have many hours of other Savitri Devi recordings. I have been carrying these recordings around for more than a decade, and it occurred to me that I should make them publicly available, in case the originals are damaged or destroyed.

Χιτλερισμός και Ινδουϊσμός

Hindudom11,910 words

Κάποτε κάποιος ρώτησε τον Ramana Maharshi – μια εκ των σπουδαιοτέρων προσωπικοτήτων του πνεύματος της σύγχρονης Ινδίας (πέθανε μόλις πριν λίγα χρόνια) – ποια ήταν η άποψή του για τον Αδόλφο Χίτλερ. Η απάντηση ήταν σύντομη και απλή: Είναι ένας «gnani», ήτοι ένας άγιος• ένας μύστης, ο οποίος μέσω της προσωπικής του εμπειρίας έχει απολύτως συνειδητοποιήσει τις αιώνιες αλήθειες που εκφράζουν την Ουσία του Σύμπαντος• έχει επίγνωση της ιεραρχικής φύσεως των αισθητών (αλλά και των πνευματικών) εκδηλώσεών του στον χρόνο και πέρα από αυτόν• Read more …

[A]lthough nothing even hints at the existence of a code of ethics attached to the Religion of the Disk, in the amount of evidence yet unearthed, there are, in his Longer Hymn to the Sun, three remarkable lines which express, more eloquently perhaps than any others, the young king’s idea of man—three lines which have not attracted, as far as I know, the special attention of any archaeologists: Read more …
