Were the Theosophical Masters justified in their distrust of the Jesuits and the Vatican?
Q. WERE THE THEOSOPHICAL MAHATMAS JUSTIFIED IN THEIR DISTRUST OF THE JESUITS AND THE VATICAN?
This is not a simple question to answer. The persons, or secret brotherhood I have written about did in-fact believe in a grand conspiracy about the Jesuit Order, and Helena Blavatsky stated, that Catholics and Jesuits were kept out of the Theosophical Society ranks. They are even called “the great enemy of humanity.” No one good would think such a thing, you may say. Was this justified! You ask? There was a time during the inner conflicts of the Theosophical Society, many Theosophists had exclaimed, that Jesuits and the Dugpas were responsible for everything going on. There was confusion and paranoia. I always argue, that the Theosophists destroyed themselves, despite all outside attempts to dismantle them, and tie them to a vast revolutionary conspiracy. People today appear too vulnerable to Far Right and Anti/Post-Liberal arguments of Conservatives and so forth, and do not quite understand what is truly at stake here. I see attempts even by Catholic Conservative intellectuals in this country to realign people’s views about the Enlightenment era. This issue is more darker than you think.
In this specific case, we are focused on the IHS: Society of Jesus (Jesuits) and Holy See versus Theosophists and Freemasonry in the nineteenth-century, because right into the twentieth-century, the conflict is taken up a notch. The German Rosicrucian movement is out of commission. Weishaupt is exiled. Republican Revolutions breaking out all over, and the Theosophists come about in the nineteenth-century. However, Theosophy basically is unable to maintain its grasp on human imagination and its influence dwindles in the early twentieth-century, due to charges of fraud, internal schisms and conflicts, but essentially, the Jesuits win without having to make it known. The Society of Jesus and Catholicism during H.P. Blavatsky’s time had just formed an alliance. In that next century, the twentieth, the Jesuit Order and Vatican allies with another new enemy of Freemasonry, of the Rationalists, the revolutionaries and the declined Theosophists — Fascism, along with General Franco under Spain and Ante Pavelić of the Ustaše in Croatia. Ignorant people have tried to tie Theosophy, Fascism and Antisemitism, but they are not right. The alliance between the Jesuits, Catholicism and Fascism — all adversaries of the Theosophists is something, that is avoided in this equation.
Sure, we all will learn that conspiracy and paranoia is not only integral to America’s Birth, but it is also integral to the history of the Theosophical Movement. If you simply look at the contents of Edith Starr Miller’s Index content in “Occult Theocrasy” on Theosophy and the Illuminati on this subject, she argued, that all Occultism and every group were involved in a grand conspiracy to bring about Luciferianism, or Satanism. It is ironic though, that she was a Fascist and strongly anti-Mormon Christian. According to her, the Adepts, Brahmans, Jesuits, Gnostics, Buddhists, Zionists, Theosophists, Hindus, Italian Carbonari, Freemasons, Irish nationalists, etc., were supposedly all in cahoots. The Russian Orthodox Church and Catholics instigated these exact accusations about Theosophists. It is also a highly widespread belief among the masses, because of this old, outdated false information. The Age of Post-Truth came long before Donald Trump. The popular conspiracy does not discriminate. Everything is said to be under the strings of one political clique, or a singular cult of Saturn-worshipers, devil-worshipers, or Reptilians. Ridiculous notions based off of misunderstandings.
The masters in The Mahatma Letters argue, that the world misunderstands them and the real nature and purpose of True Theosophy. They did not merely believe, but claimed to know or often come across what they considered to be their foes or adversaries, referred to as the “Brothers of the Shadow.” It was claimed, that this brotherhood controls a vast network. According to them, these Dark Adepts want to bring humanity under their reign of Universal Despotism, and long spiritual and mental passivity, of which the world has no idea of. These “brothers of the shadow” were said to have rank in the Jesuit Order, and Bhutanese lamas among the Bon and Dukpa (Red-cap) sect. As the Jesuit order in this time had just been reformed and allied to the Roman Catholic Church, H.P. Blavatsky expressed great dismay.
H.P. Blavatsky believed that Western Masonry had been infiltrated by other secret societies, and the same forces wanted to infiltrate the Theosophical Society. However, the way she speaks about this subject differs from the Illuminati conspiracy, which is a false super-conspiracy that only creates confusion. The stories of surveillance, infiltration, even imprisonment, death of Masons and Rosicrucians under the Church or by Jesuit assassins became the later work of the Fascists. The cases about police, Fascists, the German SS, the Bavarian Illuminati, Masonic Lodges, Theosophical Society in Germany and Italy, and Rosicrucian Lodges presents a very complex picture. On the other hand, many people’s views on these subjects are so skewed by false information, exaggerations, fear, and religious conditioning, and it is because of this, that I am against indulging in conspiracy theory. Though, it can be shown, that the issue with the Jesuits, the Vatican, the Fascists and National Socialists contain many real, historical, documented facts of information, which ought to be explained very carefully.
We are dealing sometimes with fiction versus reality situation in these cases, but I consider some legitimacy to the issue of Blavatsky’s sponsors and teachers with the Jesuits and the Vatican. You have to permit, that there must be those on the side of humanity, that have been unjustly persecuted and misunderstood. Quite every cause we deal with have been mischaracterized as enemies of humanity secretly plotting against them at every step to take away from them their Christian faith and so forth to replace it with Satanism, Secularism or a tyrannical political order. Yet, conspiracies have been wielded well and remains the weapon of the totalitarian and the tyrant. You must understand, that it is people like me, you and others who will be in their hands at the end of the pike, whenever the mass-people are directed to a scapegoat. The Church (quite all the major denominations) have instigated many lies they each have gone unaccounted for, while documentation of their desperation and wrong doings are public and on record! How can we always trust the people, when they can be easily turned on anyone. Even the literary character Jesus in the New Testament whom billions claim to worship, adore, and respect met his fate also before an ignorant rabble and leaders with their gossip, slander and manipulated opinion. You wouldn’t believe, that America: Jesuit Review published a title, How Jesuits and Jedi are More Alike than You Think (2017). You would find this claim outrageous, if the entire record of this order was put before you. They think they are the Jedi! And Theosophists, the heretics, are what then? The Sith inspired by Evil Spirits! . . . you see the absurdity in this.
Hitler pacing through the hall into the ballroom to meet with allied leaders and emissaries from the Vatican. This is what we are shown in this cult film, The Fall of Berlin, created in the traditions of Stalin’s myth-making during the second world war, about the key events of the Great Patriotic War (22 June 1941 to 9 May 1945) between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.
DIALOGUE (MINUTES 33:51-36-35)
Spanish Diplomat: Greetings from Spain, my Fuhrer.
Japanese Diplomat: Japan is celebrating your victory, my Fuhrer.
Vatican Diplomat (Cesare Orsenigo): The Holy See sends their blessing to German heroes of Moscow. The Holy See has long ago connected their fate with your fate, my dear Fuhrer.
Hitler: Dear Orsenigo! I can’t wait to read an encyclical denouncing Bolshevism. It is with greater pleasure that I would see you on St. Peter’s Throne! You are a true Nazi, Orsenigo.
Sure, this is Soviet war-time propaganda, but I think we should explore Leo. H.’s Lehmann’s book, “Behind the Dictators: A Factual Analysis of the Relationship of Nazi-Fascism and Roman Catholicism” and Karlheinz Deschner’s “God and the Fascists: The Vatican Alliance with Mussolini, Franco, Hitler, and Pavelić” to demonstrate this was no mere propaganda.
