Hitler (1889 – 1945) was only 2 years old when Madam Blavatsky died (1891).
It is said that Hitler got the idea of the swastika as a powerful symbol from her books:
QUOTE WIKIPEDIA I:
…The name Swastika comes from Sanskrit (Devanagari: स्वस्तिक), and denotes a “conducive to well being or auspicious”. The clockwise swastika is a sacred and auspicious symbol in Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. In Hinduism, the clockwise symbol is called swastika symbolizing surya (sun) and prosperity, while the counter clockwise symbol is called sauvastika symbolizing night or tantric aspects of Kali. In Jainism, a swastika is the symbol for Suparshvanatha – the 7th of 24 Tirthankaras (spiritual teachers and saviours), while in Buddhism it symbolizes the auspicious footprints of the Buddha…
I like to say that the swastika has a solely archaic Hindu origin, because its also said that Hinduism is the oldest of the world religions.
QUOTE WIKIPEDIA II:
…The Theosophical Society was officially formed in New York City, United States, on 17 November 1875 by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, Colonel Henry Steel Olcott, William Quan Judge, and others. It was self-described as “… an unsecterian body of seekers after Truth, who endeavour to promote Brotherhood and strive to serve humanity.” Olcott was its first president, and remained president until his demise in 1907. In the early months of 1875, Olcott and Judge had come to realize that, if Blavatsky was a spiritualist, she was no ordinary one. The society’s initial objective was the “study and elucidation of Occultism, the Cabala etc.”…
The swastika is indeed in the emblem of the Theosophical Society, or perhaps was, like they (this society) don’t want to be associated with the Nazis in our present days (sometimes you see a fantasy pseudo swastika in the Theosophical emblem on the internet , which only very far reminds of the real swastika) anyways the real swastika in the emblem was perhaps used before World War 2, so give and take it was 60 years in the emblem. Or perhaps nowadays only used by Theosophical branches in countries that not immediately associate it with the Nazis.
Its also said that from the 5th root race concept by Blavatsky (she called “the Aryans”) which she described as descendants from Atlantis, OK the name and word Aryan originally came from Blavatsky in her books, Hitler concocted the “der Übermensch ist ein Arier” from it. Anyways according to Blavatsky present day humans (OK her present days 1831 – 1891) are an intermediate sub race between the 4th and 5th root race. So I think its reasonable to say, and this in her line of thinking, the 5th root race Aryans are yet to come. To my knowledge Blavatsky was not promoting eugenics in her books or in her daily life, but Hitler misusing her ideas did that all the time. OK Blavatsky was somewhat human race focused, but that was not unfamiliar in those days, scientists were for instance very oriented on and interested in the genetic differences between the tribes of continental Africa. Hitler gave the eugenic twist on the hypotheses of Blavatsky, about 40 years after her books were published, and remember she was already long time deceased, she could not defend her ideas against the evil interpretations and the malicious expanding of them by the Nazis.
Moreover I got to stress that none of Blavatsky’s harmless original Aryan concept, or Hitler’s evil “Arier” concoct, has any historical basis, or Blavatsky must have had some esoteric knowledge, or by her own clairvoyance knew, that all humans are descending from aliens or something, oh well what the heck, could even be God made, Adam and Eve story could be true, or something like that. However I say God here, but fair is fair Blavatsky believed in Lucifer, but than again more in a Hinduism kind of way.
When ordinary people give Blavatsky credit, its for her promoting, together with her friend Henry Steel Olcott, of Hinduism, Yoga and Buddhism in the West. She and Olcott are now seen as the pioneers of The New Age movement.
I cherish Madam Blavatsky for her “Sleep of Siloam” concept, she said one should do the sleep deprivation with psychotropic drugs, and then come in a narcoleptic divination lucid dream state, however the only psychotropic I need is strong coffee with lots of milk, sleep deprivation I do with libido rituals and aphrodisiacs (which are not intoxicating substances, like for instance alcohol that gets you drunk). I come finally in a narcoleptic state that way, but I have flash dreams, not lucid dreams. Anyways the flash dreams give me dream themes and I can do anagrams with them, thats one way to open seals from “The 7 Seals”.
Blavatsky was a very fanatic opponent of Darwinism, of evolution, of the origin of the species, by the way. She did not believe humans came from the apes.
