In “Karmic Visions” Helena Blavatsky Predicts Europe Catastrophe, World War and Adolf Hitler
“At the time the story was written there had been no major wars in Europe for two decades, and this peace would continue for another twenty-five years. European observers were encouraged to predict a millennium of peace, prosperity, and scientific progress. It is in this setting that HPB’s story foretells the onslaught of World War I and the time period subsequent, when armies would have weapons to destroy millions of people instantaneously.”SYLVIA CRANSTON, HPB: THE EXTRAORDINARY LIFE AND INFLUENCE OF HELENA BLAVATSKY
“Karmic Visions” was published in the British Theosophical magazine “Lucifer” in June 1888.
HELENA BLAVATSKY SPEAKING ON FREDERICK III OF PRUSSIA PREDICTS CATASTROPHE FOR EUROPE BEFORE DEATH, FIRST AND SECOND WORLD WAR
“In the prognostication of such future events, at any, all foretold on the authority of cyclic recurrences, there is no psychic phenomenon involved. It is neither prevision, nor prophecy; no more than is the signaling of a comet or star, several years before its appearance. It is simply knowledge and mathematically correct computations which enable the Wise Men of the East to foretell, for instance, that England is on the eve of such another catastrophe; France, nearing such a point of her cycle, and Europe in general threatened with, or rather, on the eve of, a cataclysm, which her own cycle of racial karma has led her to.”
FREDERICK WILHELM III DIED JUNE 7TH, 1840 AND “KARMIC VISIONS” WAS PUBLISHED IN JULY OF 1888. ADOLF HITLER WAS CONCEIVED IN APRIL 1889, A YEAR LATER AFTER KARMIC VISIONS. HELENA BLAVATSKY FORSEES THE RISE OF A POWERFUL RULER
“It is as though a heartless, proud fiend, assuming sudden authority, incarnate ambition and power, had clutched with iron hand the minds of a whole country. By what wicked enchantment has he brought the people back to those primeval days of the nation when their ancestors, the yellow-haired Suevi, and the treacherous Franks roamed about in their warlike spirit, thirsting to kill, to decimate and subject each other? By what infernal powers has this been accomplished? Yet the transformation has been produced and it is as undeniable as the fact that alone the fiend rejoices and boasts of the transformation effected. (…) And then? The world is hushed in breathless expectation. Not a wife or mother, but is haunted in her dreams by the black and ominous storm-cloud that overhangs the whole of Europe. The cloud is approaching. It comes nearer and nearer. Oh woe and horror!”
“If you could foresee what I foresee, you would begin heart and soul to spread the teaching of universal brotherhood.” “It is the only safeguard!” Blavatsky told an interviewer towards the end of her life.
