The above picture depicts a monk performing light offerings, which is a common and daily practice of monks or nuns in the Tibetan Buddhism tradition.
Light Offerings To the Triple Gems (Buddha, Dharma, Sangha) Tenzin DorjeSingapore75‘Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. The following are just a small collection of symbols related to Tibet and the Himalayan Buddhism, but the explanations do not want to be called complete, since only serve to give some information to interested parties without going into too much of the argument is in the range of initiation. The eight auspicious symbols, also called "Eight Precious Symbols" (Sanskrit astamangala, Tibet. 1 Shell (in Sancritus Sankha, in Tibetan dung gyas'khyl) is represented in white, dextrorotatory and with the terminal part to the tip. In Tibetan Buddhism is also used as a water pot with saffron and, primarily, as a musical instrument used to call the monks to meetings and to make offerings of sounds during puje. Represents the glory of the teaching of Dharma, as the sound of the shell, spreading in all directions.
2 Parasol (Sanskrit chattra, gdugs in Tibetan) is the symbol of royal dignity and represents the spiritual power. 3 Banner of Victory (dhvaja in Sanskrit, in Tibetan-rgyal mtshan) refers to different objects of Tibetan culture.
Classically it is a narrow cylinder of tissue with three or more strips of silk adorned with ribbons of five colors (white, red, green, blue, yellow). 4 Goldfish (suvarnamatsya in Sanskrit, Tibetan gser-nya) is a religious symbol used since ancient times.
Represent the overcoming of all obstacles and the attainment of liberation, freedom in having acquired the knowledge of the ultimate nature, as well as the fish swim free in the water, and the preciousness of samsaric beings, which should be freed from ignorance. Tibetan images in the jar (kalasa in Sanskrit, Tibetan chen-po'i gter-bum-pa) is a round container with a short neck and narrow and then widens to form a rim. The lotus (padme insanscrito, but in Tibetan-pad) does not grow in Tibet, for this is drawn so much more simple and stylized representations with respect to Indian art, or Japanese. Blue (utpala Sanskrit and Tibetan) symbolizes the victory of spirit over the senses, the wisdom of knowledge, the 6 virtues. 7 Node Infinity (in Sancritus Srivatsa, in Tibetan dpal be'u) is a closed node consists of intertwined lines at right angles. 8 Dharma wheel (in Sancritus cakra, in Tibetan 'khor-lo) is composed of a central hub, of 8 or more spokes and a rim outside.
According to the three trainings of Buddhist practice, the hub is training in moral discipline which stabilizes the mind; rays represent the understanding of the emptiness of all phenomena that eliminates the root of our ignorance, and the outer rim, finally, identifies the concentration that allows you to keep a steady practice of Buddhist doctrine. It also represents the eightfold noble path that leads to liberation, Dharma and Shakyamuni Buddha himself. It is the symbol of Dhyanibuddha Vairochana and is also represented on the soles of the Buddha. PETS: Some animals are negative symbols, and are derived from a karma which was prevalent in some type of mental defect, others symbolize positive qualities, and still others are ambivalent.
DEER (DEER OR) - his skin on the left shoulder of a deity is the great compassion toward all sentient beings. ELEPHANT (WHITE) - A symbol of Tibet, is the strength of mind, serves as a symbol of calm and tranquility, patience, strength possessed by those who are journeying toward enlightenment. The elephant is also part of the group of "four brothers in harmony) The elephant skin that hangs from the shoulders of a deity symbolizing the overcoming of ignorance. GAZZELLE - usually represented in pairs, symbolizing the first lesson given by the Buddha in the deer park at Sarnath. MARMOT - rebirth as a groundhog comes from practicing "yoga of the mind" only to the desire for greater concentration and without any intention of meditation (as it has a bodhisattva). PEACOCK - is a symbol of positive transformation in any negative situation, it is said can not ingest poisons suffer.
SNAKE - a symbol of hatred and aversion, but also the understanding of existence fivefold (5 buddha, 5 skandhas, 5 elements, 5 colors, etc.). APE - a symbol of greed and untrained mind, the rebirth comes from practicing "physical yoga" just for welfare and health benefits. TIGER - a tiger-skin apron around his waist symbolizes the removal of the erroneous belief in a personal ego and eternal. Some animals are endowed with supernatural powers: they are called "divine animals" or "mythical beasts", because their birth is miraculous like that of a demigod.
MANGUSTA (mung Nakula), similar to a skunk-is a symbol of material wealth and spiritual, traditional enemy of Nagas and snakes (both treasure guardians).
The NAGA (Sanskrit for "snake") semidivine are creatures that live in hell, but they had a positive attitude towards the Buddha, as the naga-cobra with 7 heads protected from the rain while meditating Sakyamuni. The cymbals are two small plates made of a particular alloy of metals selected to obtain a pure sound, penetrating and long, when they are struck against each other. TIBETAN BELL is a bowl obtained from the merger of seven metals, each of which corresponds symbolically to a planet-Sun Gold, Silver Moon, Mercury-Mercury-Venus copper, iron-Mars, Jupiter-tin, lead-Saturn. Tambourine of the Tibetan tradition, currently consists of two half spheres of wood put together, covered in fabric or leather, and each provided with a small ball on top of a string: the rotation of the wrist that holds the handle sends them a moving sound . VAJRA (Tibetan Dorje) is a Sanskrit word meaning both thunderbolt and diamond that symbolizes the essence and purity of the teachings. They are a group of objects, derived from the art of China, which are tender, often represented at the foot of a deity, along with "offerings of the 5 senses," or as decorative objects for use by both religious and secular.
The kapala a skullcap is used as a cup to offer libations to Tantric deities, mounted on a pedestal and with a lid. The ax, kartr in Sanskrit, symbolizes the victory and the transformation of matter into positive energy of the won, because it was used to chop the corpses in graves outside of Tibet. The hands is constituted by a cylinder made of copper, brass or other metals, sometimes plated silver supported by a handle of wood or bamboo. OFFERS OF THE 5 SENSES (the five qualities of pleasure), pancakamanguna Sanskrit, Tibetan 'dod-yon sna-Inga, are also used as an offering, delivering the quality of the five senses, he meditates on their nature and intention to leave desire.

Phur-ba (in Sanskrit, meaning peg or bolt) or vajra-nail, is a dagger with triangular blade, used in special sacred rituals.
Originally the stupa was a mound above the ashes of eminent personalities, then became a symbol of Buddhist doctrine. The vision of the site is not recommended for children under 18 years because of the topics covered. Buddhism, being the 4th most common after Christianity, Islam and Hinduism has 373 million followers -- these followers today are found across the globe, with steady rises in Western Buddhist followers. The Nazi policy of tolerance for Buddhism does not prove any influence of Buddhist teachings on Hitler or Nazi ideology. Many high-ranking members of the Nazi regime, including Hitler, but especially Himmler and Hess, held convoluted occult beliefs. Tibet had suffered a long history of Chinese attempts to annex it and British failure to prevent the aggression or to protect Tibet. The Tibetan Government was exploring the possibility of also gaining protection from Japan in the face of the unstable situation. Several postwar writers on the Occult have asserted that Buddhism and the legend of Shambhala played a role in the German-Tibetan official contact.
The German Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) also emphasized the concept of the Ubermensch (superman) and began his work, Der Antichrist (The Antichrist) (1888) with the line, “Let us see ourselves for what we are. In The Arctic Home of the Vedas (1903), the early advocate of Indian freedom, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, added a further touch by identifying the southern migration of the Thuleans with the origin of the Aryan race. Felix Niedner, the German translator of the Old Norse Eddas, founded the Thule Society in 1910. Another major influence on Hitler’s Thinking was Karl Haushofer (1869-1946), a German military advisor to the Japanese after the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905. After serving as a general in the First World War, Haushofer founded the Vril Society in Berlin in 1918.
Rudolf Hess was one of Haushofer’s closest students and introduced him to Hitler in 1923, while Hitler was in prison for his failed Putsch. The Swastika is also a traditional Symbol of the Old Norse God of Thunder and Might (Scandinavian Thor, German Donner, Baltic Perkunas). In the late nineteenth century, Guido von List adopted the Swastika as an emblem for the Neo-Pagan movement in Germany. Sharing the anti-Christian sentiment of the Neo-Pagan movement, the Thule Society also adopted the Hakenkreuz as part of its emblem, placing it in a circle with a vertical German dagger superimposed on it. The French researchers Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier, in Le Matin des Magiciens (The Morning of the Magicians) (1962), wrote that Haushofer convinced Hitler to use the Hakenkreuz as the Symbol for the Nazi Party. During the first half of the 1920s, a violent rivalry took place among the Occult Societies and Secret Lodges in Germany. Influenced by Nietszche’s writings and Thule Society creeds, Hitler believed that Christianity was a defective Religion, infected by its roots in Jewish Thinking. In 1924, Paul Dahlke founded the Buddhistisches Haus (House for Buddhists) in Frohnau, Berlin. Although the Nazi regime closed the Buddhistische Gemeinde (Buddhist Society) in Berlin, which had been active from 1936, and briefly arrested its founder Martin Steinke in 1941, they generally did not persecute Buddhists. Under the influence of Haushofer, Hitler authorized Frederick Hielscher, in 1935, to establish the Ahnenerbe (Bureau for the Study of Ancestral Heritage), with Colonel Wolfram von Sievers as its head. Alexander Csoma de Koros (Korosi Csoma Sandor) (1784-1842) was a Hungarian scholar obsessed with the quest to find the origins of the Hungarian people. Hungarian, Finnish, the Turkic languages, Mongolian, and Manchu belong to the Ural-Altaic family of languages, also known as the Turanian family, after the Persian word Turan for Turkistan. Ernst Schafer, a German hunter and biologist, participated in two expeditions to Tibet, in 1931–1932 and 1934–1936, for sport and zoological research. According to Richard Greve, “Tibetforschung in SS-Ahnenerbe (Tibetan Research in the SS- Ahnenerbe)” published in T.
Several postwar studies on Nazism and the Occult, such as Trevor Ravenscroft in The Spear of Destiny (1973), have asserted that under the influence of Haushofer and the Thule Society, Germany sent annual expeditions to Tibet from 1926 to 1943. Aside from the fact that Himmler did not establish the Ahnenerbe, but rather incorporated it into the SS in 1937, Ravenscroft’s account contains other dubious assertions. KirilIsrael5Please note that it IS possible for the candles to all point towards the centre because they could simply have two doors open at each end of the room, therefore the wind would come from two different directions forcing the candles to point in different directions (towards the centre). These prayer wheels are filled with rolls of thin paper imprinted with many copies of the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum.

Bkra-shis-rtags brgyad), constitute one of the oldest and best known groups of symbols (including objects, animals and plants) of Tibetan culture, already present from the canonical texts of Indian Buddhism written in Pali and Sanskrit. Used since ancient times, in pre Buddhist, as a symbol of female deities, such as container and as a musical instrument. Serves as decoration and usually is found in temples and monasteries, suspended from the ceiling, as ornaments of the roofs of buildings or private, or religious ends of long poles of prayer.
The fact that it is occurring in Tibet indicate that its use is strictly symbolic and iconographic indicating purity and beauty in that, although rooted in the mud of ponds, produces white flowers above the water. More generally, among the eight auspicious symbols, the Wheel of Dharma symbolizes the Buddhist teaching in its entirety and reminds us that the Dharma embraces all things, has neither beginning nor end, is moving and still. They are very powerful when compared to men, often monstrous and deformed, and can bestow good or bad depending on their character. The mongoose is often depicted as spitting jewels and pearls, and belongs to the god of wealth Kubera.
The sound of the bell varies depending on the proportion of the components of the alloy, the shape and thickness of the metal.
Tantra believes that it is necessary that these two principles are well balanced to achieve true spiritual growth.
Almost a scepter, vajra is often drawn in the hands of the Buddha and is a liturgical instrument, used in conjunction with the bell gantha.
They are: the horn of the rhinoceros, elephant tusks, eight coral branches and, less frequently depicted, the earrings of the King (round), the earrings of the queen (squares), jewelry (or units) cross and the triple gem. Inside the cylinder is placed a long strip of paper rolled up on itself, carrying a sentence of a mantra repeated over and over again, even outside is carved or painted a mantra. Shabda music (represented by a shell), symbol of wisdom and the realization of the quality of speech. It is said that before parinirvana Buddha Sakyamuni, left, as a reminder of his presence on earth, the imprint of his foot on a stone near Kusinara. Its symbolism is very powerful to "defeat", even the most terrible symbol demons and a direct means to break the bonds and impediments (negative emotions) that are encountered on the path to inner freedom.

Prompted by those beliefs, the Germans sent an official expedition to Tibet between 1938 and 1939 at the invitation of the Tibetan Government to attend the Losar (New Year) celebrations. Under Stalin, the Soviet Union was severely persecuting Buddhism, specifically the Tibetan Form as practiced among the Mongols within its borders and in its satellite, the People’s Republic of Mongolia (Outer Mongolia). Japan and Germany had signed an Anti-Commintern Pact in 1936, declaring their mutual hostility toward the spread of international Communism.
Just as Plato had cited the Egyptian legend of the sunken island of Atlantis, Herodotus mentioned the Egyptian legend of the continent of Hyperborea in the far north. At the end of the seventeenth century, the British astronomer Sir Edmund Halley first suggested that the Earth was hollow, consisting of four concentric spheres. In 1871, British novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton, in The Coming Race, described a superior race, the Vril-ya, who lived beneath the Earth and planned to conquer the World with vril, a psychokinetic energy. Thus, many Germans in the early twentieth century believed that they were the descendants of the Aryans who had migrated south from Hyperborea-Thule and who were destined to become the master race of supermen through the Power of vril. Starting later that year, Dietrich Eckart, a member of the inner circle of the Thule Society, initiated Hitler into the Society and began to train him in its methods for harnessing vril to create a race of Aryan supermen. Because he was extremely impressed with Japanese culture, many believe that he was responsible for the later German-Japanese alliance. It shared the same basic beliefs as the Thule Society and some say that it was its inner circle. Subsequently, Haushofer often visited the future Fuhrer, teaching him Geopolitics in association with the ideas of the Thule and Vril Societies. For example, the counterclockwise variant of it, adopted by the Nazis, is also the letter “G” in the medieval Northern European Runic Script.
Because of this association with the God of Thunder, the Latvians and Finnish both took the Swastika as the insignia for their air forces when they gained independence after the First World War. The Germans did not use the Sanskrit word Swastika, however, but called it instead “Hakenkreutz,” meaning “hooked cross.” It would defeat and replace the cross, just as Neo-Paganism would defeat and replace Christianity.
In 1925, for example, Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the Anthroposophical movement, was found murdered. He viewed its teachings of Forgiveness, the triumph of the weak, and self-abnegation as anti-evolutionary and saw himself as a messiah replacing God and Christ. It was open to members of all Buddhist traditions, but primarily catered to the Theravada and Japanese forms, since they were the most widely known in the West at that time. A more probable explanation is Germany’s wish not to damage relations with its Buddhist ally, Japan. Among other functions, Hitler charged it with researching Germanic runes and the origins of the Swastika, and locating the source of the Aryan race. Based on the linguistic affinities between Hungarian and the Turkic languages, he felt that the origins of the Hungarian people were in “the land of the Yugurs (Uighurs)” in East Turkistan (Xinjiang, Sinkiang). From 1909, the Turks had a pan-Turanian movement spearheaded by a society known as the Young Turks. Hielscher was a friend of Sven Hedin, the Swedish explorer who had led expeditions to Tibet in 1893, 1899-1902, and 1905-1908, and an expedition to Mongolia in 1927-1930. Schutzstaffel, protection Squad) and appointed Professor Walther Wust, chairman of the Sanskrit Department at Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, as its new director. The Ahnenerbe sponsored him to lead a third expedition (1938-1939) at the official invitation of the Tibetan Government.
During the festivities, he reported, the Nechung Oracle warned that although the Germans brought sweet presents and words, Tibet must be careful: Germany’s leader is like a dragon. Hauschild (ed.) “Lebenslust und Fremdenfurcht” – Ethnologie im Dritten Reich (“Passion for Life and Xenophobia” – Ethnology in the Third Reich) (1995), Beger recommended that the Tibetans could play an important role after the final victory of the Third Reich.
Their mission was first to find and then to maintain contact with the Aryan forefathers in Shambhala and Agharti, hidden subterranean cities beneath the Himalayas. Also, the tibetan traditon practitioner do not meditate with fire as all outer phenomenon are all but an illusion as taught by the Lord Buddha, thus, practioner there will never rely on it.

Always been used in traditional ceremonies and on special occasions, have assumed increasing importance over the centuries.
Single or triple, yellow silk, white or colored, is represented open and wide enough to accommodate four or five people.
It represents the victory of the Buddhist teachings, knowledge over ignorance and fear, the Dharma of all obstacles and achieve the ultimate happiness. The use of vessels of this type dates back to early Buddhism and other religions and symbolizes the idea of achievement and satisfaction of material desires. It represents spiritual purity, and that is why often the images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and seed syllables are represented on a pillow shaped like a lotus flower. There are no clear indications as to its origin: it is often compared to the symbol nandyavarta, a variant of the swastika that has many similarities with this node. Already in pre Buddhist was widespread in the double sense of the weapon or the Sun rotates in Buddhist culture, is closely associated with the concept of the Wheel of Dharma by the Buddha set in motion at the first public exposition of his teaching at Sarnath near Benares (now Varanasi) in the deer park. The symbol has probably originated in Central Asia in the habit of using the skin of mongoose as a pouch for coins. It is used in rituals and it is believed that vibration is useful to encourage the concentration during meditation. Can be fixed, to turn as a wheel, or of smaller size, to hold in hand and for the handle to swing, always in a clockwise direction. The mirror is a symbol forms the subject of VISTA (in some traditions it is also pure thoughts). On the sole of the foot of a Buddha is the wheel of Dharma, one of the 32 major signs of an Enlightened Being. In contrast, Japan was upholding Tibetan Buddhism in Inner Mongolia, which it had annexed as part of Manchukuo, its puppet state in Manchuria. The invitation for the visit of an official delegation from Nazi Germany was extended in this context.
The hollow Earth theory fired many people’s imaginations, especially with the publication in 1864 of French novelist Jules Verne’s Voyage to the Center of the Earth. The French author Louis Jacolliot furthered the myth in Les Fils de Dieu (The Sons of God) (1873) and Les Traditions indo-europeeenes (The Indo-European Traditions) (1876).
We know well enough how we are living off that track.” Although Nietzsche never mentioned vril, yet in his posthumously published collection of aphorisms, Der Wille zur Macht (The Will to Power), he emphasized the role of an internal force for superhuman development. Sebottendorf had previously lived for several years in Istanbul where, in 1910, he had formed a secret society that combined Esoteric Sufism and Freemasonry.
Hitler had been mystic-minded from his youth, when he had studied the Occult and Theosophy in Vienna.
He was also highly interested in Indian and Tibetan culture, learned Sanskrit, and claimed that he had visited Tibet.
The Society sought contact with supernatural beings beneath the Earth to gain from them the powers of vril. Thus, when Hitler became chancellor in 1933, he adopted Geopolitics as his policy for the Aryan race to conquer Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia.
Used by Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains for thousands of years, it became widespread in Tibet as well. The Freemasons took the letter as an important Symbol, since “G” could stand for God, the Great Architect of The Universe, or Geometry.
Friedrich Krohn of the Thule Society, Hitler adopted the Hakenkreuz in a white circle for the central design of the Nazi Party flag.
This conclusion is highly unlikely, since Haushofer did not meet Hitler until 1923, whereas the Nazi flag first appeared in 1920. Steiner had used the image of the Antichrist and Lucifer as future Spiritual leaders who would regenerate Christianity in a new pure Form. There is no evidence, however, that teachers of Tibetan Buddhism were ever present in the Third Reich. He believed that if he could reach Lhasa, he would find there the keys for locating his homeland. The Hungarian Turanian Society soon followed in 1910 and the Turanian Alliance of Hungary in 1920.

A favorite of the Nazis, Hitler invited him to give the opening address at the Berlin Olympics in 1936.
The Ahnenerbe had a Tibet Institut (Tibet Institute), which was renamed the Sven Hedin Institut fur Innerasien und Expeditionen (Sven Hedin Institute for Inner Asia and Expeditions) in 1943.
Tsarong, the pro-Japanese former head of the Tibetan military, tried to soften the prediction. One of the members of the Schafer expedition was the anthropologist Bruno Beger, who was responsible for racial research.
They could serve as an allied race in a pan-Mongol confederation under the aegis of Germany and Japan. Adepts there were the guardians of secret occult powers, especially vril, and the missions sought their aid in harnessing those powers for creating an Aryan master race. In 1922, the Polish scientist Ferdinand Ossendowski published Beasts, Men and Gods describing his travels through Mongolia.
The mantra is particularly associated with the four-armed Shadakshari form of Avalokiteshvara. The eight auspicious symbols are often depicted on kata (a scarf Tibetan auspicious and blessing), banners, tapestries, thangkas, flags and engraved on bracelets, necklaces etc.. Eight strips of silk of one color or multicolored, decorated with fringe, hanging down from the top edge. In Tibet, the two golden fishes are represented only in conjunction with eight other symbols. In Tibetan Buddhism using vessels of different shape depending on the ritual practices, in particular for that tantric. The symmetry of the petals of the lotus flower, represents the order of the cosmos and this is used as a template for the creation of a mandala. In Tibetan Buddhism is a classic symbol of the way in which all phenomena are interdependent with each other and depend on the causes and conditions (tendrel) that are represented by the geometric lines that intersect each other. Represents the method and the masculine energy and is the symbol of the family of Dhyanibuddha Akshobhya. With the rotation, the beneficial effects of the mantra, expand, like circles in the water, in space, pervading all beings, in every direction. The handle is formed by three angry faces of Dharmapala and ends with half dorje or other symbols. Claiming that Japan was Shambhala, the Imperial Government was trying to win the support of the Mongols under its rule for an invasion of Outer Mongolia and Siberia to create a pan-Mongol confederation under Japanese protection.
In August 1939, shortly after the German expedition to Tibet, Hitler broke his pact with Japan and signed the Nazi-Soviet Pact. Writing in 1679, the Swedish author Olaf Rudbeck identified the Atlanteans with the Hyperboreans and located the latter at the North Pole. He wrote that “the herd,” meaning common persons, strives for security within itself through creating Morality and rules, whereas the supermen have an internal vital force that drives them to go beyond the herd. It believed in the Creed of the assassins, deriving from the Nazari sect of Ismaili Islam, which had flourished during the Crusades. Around 900 AD we find it in Venice, where the cornerstone of Freemasonry was laid when the Science assimilated the Syrian legend of Hiram Abif and linked the individual grades to the construction of the Temple of Solomon -- and thus the Science became a monopoly of the lodge.
The key to success would be finding the forefathers of the Aryan race in Central Asia, the guardians of the secrets of vril. Hitler chose red for the background color to compete against the red flag of the rival Communist Party. It is more likely that Haushofer used the widespread presence of the Swastika in India and Tibet as evidence to convince Hitler of this region as the location of the forefathers of the Aryan race. In later years, Hitler continued the persecution of Anthroposophists, Theosophists, Freemasons, and Rosicrucians.
The Nazis allowed the House for Buddhists to remain open throughout the War, but tightly controlled it. Some scholars believe that the Japanese and Korean languages also belong to the Turanian family. Hedin engaged in pro-Nazi publishing activities in Sweden and made numerous diplomatic missions to Germany between 1939 and 1943.
A possible explanation for the invitation is that the Tibetan Government wished to maintain cordial relations with the Japanese and their German allies as a Balance against the British and Chinese. He said that the Regent had heard much more from the Oracle, but he himself was unauthorized to divulge the details.
Although Beger also recommended further studies to measure all the Tibetans, no further expeditions to Tibet were undertaken.
They can also decorate the walls and beams, the sides of the thrones and many other articles used in religious or secular, are also plotted on the ground with white powder when it is expected to pass some important personalities religious or civil.
The symbolic significance of the sun comes from its function of protection from inclement weather or excessive sun, a possibility which has always been identified as a sign of wealth. The vase symbolizes wealth of spiritual fulfillment, the perfection of the dharma, longevity and prosperity.
The image of the lotus is used in the practice of self-healing Ngal-know to identify and redress the 5 I 7 Chakra. Having neither beginning nor end it also symbolizes the infinite knowledge and wisdom and eternity of his teachings.
The DOUBLE Vaira or Visva Vajra (Tibetan dorje natso) is a double dorje symbol of family and Dhyanibuddha Amoghasiddhi emblem of the spiritual power of Buddha and the ability to perform perfectly every action. Can also be depicted in a schematic form or hump on the open surface that represent the content.
According to several accounts, Hyperborea split into the islands of Thule and Ultima Thule, which some people identified with Iceland and Greenland. While in Istanbul, Sebottendorf was also undoubtedly familiar with the pan-Turanian movement of the Young Turks, started in 1908, which was largely behind the Armenian genocide of 1915-1916. In 1920, Hitler became the head of the German Workers Party, now renamed the National Socialist German Worker (Nazi) Party. Haushofer developed the Doctrine of Geopolitics and, in the early 1920s, became the director of the Institute for Geopolitics at Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich. Various scholars ascribe this policy to Hitler’s wish to eliminate any occult rivals to his rule. He saw himself as ridding the World of a degenerate system and bringing about a new step in Evolution with the Aryan master race. As some members knew Chinese and Japanese, they acted as translators for the government in return for tolerance of Buddhism. Thus, the Turanian National Alliance was founded in Japan in 1921 and the Japanese Turanian Society in the early 1930s. Thus, the Tibetan Government welcomed the German expedition at the 1939 New Year (Losar) celebration in Lhasa. The Regent prays daily for no War between the British and the Germans, since this would have terrible consequences for Tibet as well. Subsequently, from 1929, groups of Tibetans purportedly came to Germany and started lodges known as the Society of Green Men.
In the future, its powerful inhabitants would come to the surface to save the World from disaster. Subsequently, nothing ever materialized from the Japanese and German contacts with the Tibetan Government. Haushofer was undoubtedly aware of these movements, which sought the origins of the Turanian race in Central Asia. In connection with the Green Dragon Society in Japan, through the intermediary of Haushofer, they supposedly helped the Nazi cause with their occult powers. The German translation of Ossendowski’s book, Tiere, Menschen und Gotter, appeared in 1923 and became quite popular. The parasol symbolizes compassion and protection of all sentient beings from suffering, disease, ignorance and mental poisons. Back in Germany, Sebottendorf had also been a member of the Germanen Order (Order of Teutons), founded in 1912 as a right-wing society with a secret anti-Semitic Lodge. It fit in well with the Thule Society’s search for the origins of the Aryan race there as well.
During the rest of his stay in Lhasa, Schafer met often with the Regent and had a good rapport. Gunther on Die nordische Rasse bei den Indogermanen Asiens (The Northern Race among the Indo-Germans of Asia), Beger subscribed to Gunther’s theory of a “northern race” in Central Asia and Tibet. Himmler was attracted to these groups of Tibetan-Agharti adepts and, purportedly from their influence, established the Ahnenerbe in 1935.
Sven Hedin, however, published in 1925 Ossendowski und die Wahrheit (Ossendowski and the Truth), in which he debunked the Polish scientist’s claims.
Through these channels, assassination, genocide, and anti-Semitism became parts of the Thule Society’s Creed. His Interest in Tibetan culture added weight to the candidacy of Tibet as the key to finding a common origin for the Aryan and Turanian races and for gaining the Power of vril that its Spiritual leaders possessed.
In 1937, he had proposed a research project for Eastern Tibet and, with the Schafer expedition, planned to investigate scientifically the racial characteristics of the Tibetan people. He pointed out that Ossendowski had lifted the idea of Agharti from Saint-Yves d’Alveidre’s 1886 novel Mission de l’Inde en Europe (Mission of India in Europe) to make his story more appealing to the German public.
Anti-Communism was added after the Bavarian Communist Revolution later in 1918, when the Munich Thule Society became the center of the counterrevolutionary movement.
While in Tibet and Sikkim on the way, Beger measured the skulls of three hundred Tibetans and Sikkimese and examined some of their other physical features and bodily marks.
Since Hedin had a strong influence on the Ahnenerbe, it is unlikely that this bureau would have sent an expedition specifically to find Shambhala and Agharti and, subsequently, would have received assistance from the latter.
He concluded that the Tibetans occupied an intermediary position between the Mongol and European races, with the European racial element showing itself most pronouncedly among the aristocracy.
