Great Aryans-Savitri Devi
Savitri Devi, born Maximine Julia Portas on 30/9/05 is the first of the great pre-war National Socialists to conceive the concept of Esoteric National Socialism although this term was not used by her as such but nevertheless she was one of the first to realise that Adolf Hitler was more than just a politician, statesman or war leader but an Aryan Avatar. Within His person He combined the elements of the Hindu Vishnu[Preserver] and Shiva[Destroyer] Avatars, the presager of the final Kalki Avatar who will bring the Kali Yuga to a close. Miguel Serrano developed this concept further in later years.
This theory was explored in her 1958 published work The Lightning and the Sun in which she wrote about the impact of Ahknaton[a Man Above Time], Genghis Khan[a Man in Time] and Adolf Hitler[a Man Against Time]. The work was dedicated to Adolf Hitler: "To the god-like Individual of our times; the Man against Time; the greatest European of all times; both Sun and Lightning: Adolf Hitler".
Genghis Khan she typified as the Lightning, Ahknaton as the Sun but Adolf Hitler encapsulated both the Lightning and the Sun in his life and work. Genghis Khan was a conqueror who sought power merely for power`s sake and for self-aggrandisement. Akhnaton was an idealist, a philosopher who sought to introduce a new religion into Egypt, the Religion of the Sun Disc but he lacked the necessary `Lightning` to ensure that his work ultimately succeeded. By contrast Adolf Hitler was an idealist who sought to usher in a new Aryan Golden Age, to reverse the effects of the Kali Yuga and was not afraid to use force to ensure that His ideals were enforced. Ultimately He failed as the anti-Aryan forces of zionism and international capitalism were too powerful. He had insufficient `Lightning` to defeat the dark forces. However He should be viewed as the prototype of Der Starker von Oben[Guido von List`s concept] who is yet to appear who will in the words of the Bhagavad Gita: "Age after age, when justice is cushed, when evil reigns supreme, I come; again am I born on Earth to save the world." Many consider The Lightning and the Sun to be her most significant work and I share this view.
Savitri was an intelligent and well educated woman whith Masters degrees in Philosophy and Chemistry and a Ph.D in Philosophy. She was half English, part Greek and part Italian by extraction and defined her nationality as `Indo-European`.
In 1949 she suffered imprisonment for printing and distributing National Socialist propaganda in post war western Germany. In the 1950s along with The Lightening and the Sun she published Defiance, Gold in the Furance, Impeachment of Man and Pilgramage. Earlier works include A Warning to the Hindus, A Son of God: The Life and Philosophy of Akhnaton, King of Egypt. Later works include Long Whiskers and the Two-Legged Goddess and Memories and Reflections of an Aryan Woman.
In 2005 her taped 1978 interview transcripts were published as And Time Rolls On:The Savitri Devi Interviews.
She died on 22/10/82 in Essex at her friend`s house after having spent most of the latter part of her life living in India.
It would be fair to say that her greatest influence has been in recent years when there has been a renewed interest in her work and the republication of her books.
After the war she developed many important relationships with other international National Socialists.
I hope to be able to write further articles about this important woman`s work in the future on this blog. This article is intended to be merely an introduction to her life and work.
