of Franz Bardon on XXth century
s regards the life of a Being such as Franz Bardon, one can
speak only about visible life. This report, which
is ours, applies also to the life of every Adept or
Master of Wisdom.
And actually, what do we know about the real life of the
Masters who were at the origin of the Resurgence of the Hermetic
Knowledge under the name of Theosophy ?
Who really is, for instance, the Being Who let himself know
on XIXth century under the name
of Koot Hoomi ? Same question about
the other Masters : Who really were They ? That is, to what
aim did They dedicate life and time ? To reveal the Ancient
Wisdom? Certainly. But still ? What do They achieve now ?
We touch here on the punctual mission during
an incarnated life on Earth of a Master. This
Work takes part in the responsibilities which Each of Them
has within the Brotherhood of Light and which, if these last
are exposed sometimes briefly, they remain nevertheless covered
with the veil of inevitable and impenetrable discretion which
is necessary to their sublime Work of Helping Humanity.
Then, we should consider with a lot of cautiousness the public
life of a Master of Wisdom, such as it expressed itself before
the eyes of all who approached him his close relations,
his friends and his disciples. He passes discreetly in the
life, spreading good around him, and it is sporadically, here
and there, to the one or to the other who met him, whom appears
afterwards a strange impression to have touching peace and
approaching a being not as the others. And what
could we say more and really about him ? How
could one recognize a practitioner student, Master
or Magus of Hermetism ? Certainly not in
the outside aspect ! He lives, works, eats, sleeps and behaves
as all the human beings but he is conscious hundred percent
First of all, let us answer a question which frequently comes :
How a Being such as Franz Bardon being
considered as a Real Master was able to have a
family life, an intimate relation with a woman, his wife ? In
other words How was he able to assume a sexual
relation having reached this High State of Adept ?.
The usual sexual abstinence of an Adept does not imply that
this One cannot assume a controlled sexual relation because
its aim is procreating when the birth of a human being is
wished. As example, we have Marpa the Great, named the
Translator, who had reached the sublime State of Master
and who was married to another Master, Dakmema. Why do the
readers or the researchers in Hermetism accept the State of
Master of many others and why do they hesitate to attribute
the same State, because of the marriage, to Franz Bardon ?
Let us consider the official life of this Great
Magus. We know that he was a Doctor. He received the diploma
in Münich before Second World War but it had not been recognized
then by Czech Authorities, that explains why he exercised
Medicine only as a Therapist. The Master cured the
poor people generally declared lost by the official Medicine.
From all the places of Europe people came to ask him help.
Then he had the reputation to treat every body with the best
In this order of ideas, we know very well how he elaborated
himself the medicines for the best benefit of his patients.
There were exceptional remedies : The Master
used them [plants] to prepare paints, gouts, alchimical
extractions, quintessences and spagyrical elixirs… After the
fermentation, the mass was filtered and worked again in an
If he officially was a Therapist, Franz Bardon was a graphologist
too (expert with Courts), an astrologer, a clairvoyant by
a simple glance on a person... He did good ; he treated sicknesses ;
he helped ; he finally gave fragments of the Sacred Knowledge
in the three volumes which compose his literary Work.
He had many activities… but no one might really let know
what he exactly and really achieved. Does a Being of this
degree of Spiritual Evolution come to the world to practice
Occultism on the scene of different theatres ? Does he come
to help and to cure the people ? Does he come to teach
Sacred Science? Yes, all this together but there is still
more. We could say that all these visible and known activities
are only the cherry on the cake, only the public
expression of the Kindness. But the more deeper, the totally
hidden and painful expression of this Fundamental Kindness,
which is the Centre of gravity of a Master, is an Occult Work,
bound to his particular competence, for the benefit of the
Humanity and pursued in agreement and with the cooperation
of all the Brothers of Light.
What was his Work which even his close relations did not
suspect ? As Apollonius of Tyana who, by night, operated magically
and reorganized the legions of devils so
as these should not go beyond their rights towards the human
beings, Franz Bardon, in continuation of this old
work made already on the Ist century
of our era, left at night and … Before midnight,
he got up, drank a very strong coffee and got ready then to
go out to make his Magic Evocations … He took the stick into
which was integrated a dagger… He got dressed
warmly … He never said where this place was.
As regards to us, it would be presumptuous to assert that
we are able to present clearly the whole Mission of
a Master while this Work is covered with the veil of the greatest
discretion. However, from what we know about this subject,
we can say that his Mission was to work strongly and
mainly, by means of his Brothers, the other Masters, to
seal the Door of the Evil at a crucial moment that
crossed our Planet during Second World war.
We cannot indeed, without resorting to the occult knowledge,
understand in which terrible stake our Planet and its Humanity
were diked in the middle of the last century.
Many books appeared afterwards, which were very intuitive,
relevant and very well informed about what happened and from
what we escaped … But do we know really that the sole support
of the willingness of the peoples gathered in front of the
totalitarian octopus - whose epicentre was the Nazi party
- was not sufficient to stop the Evil ? Do we know that
this last one took food from the Space
and that its submission required the use of a Transcendental
Force, of a strongest power than we, poor human beings, are
able to show on the most heroic times ? It was a terrible
fight, not only for us, the human beings, but for the Brothers
of Light. On this war, these Forces of Darkness unleashed
their violence on Humanity even more concretely than as usual
: the very old Karma of the Humanity, the “Atlantean Karma
had to be paid, indeed.
Faithful to this Initiatory Line of the West (connected,
of course, to the Transhimalayan Brotherhood), quite as Saint
on the XVIIIth century, Franz Bardon
was the Master Rosae+Crucis.
Indeed, “in various letters, when he was under arrest,
he signed as Member of the Brotherhood Rosae Crucis. Moreover, we have a document he
signed : F. Bardon, Initiator Rosae Crucis
; it means : This One Who transmits Initiation
to Masters Rosae Crucis Themeselves. Those who know
what represents the “Rosy + Cross in the Hermetic
Tradition of the West will understand easily how august reference
is closed in this simple signature…
He so suffered, by taking a body which did not correspond
to his spiritual Evolution. But he did not show nobody
anything of his sufferings
and when I asked him what was the reason of these
sad thoughts, he answered that the Karma of true Franz
Bardon of whom he had taken the physical body, weighed him
However, if he would not have taken this body by
he would not have been able to carry off his Mission. Indeed,
the physical body corresponding to his Evolution would not
have been provided with the necessary physical and etherical
stains (because of Universal Laws) to success : these
stains had to attract the painful Karma under shape of tortures
and diseases… By undergoing these sufferings that
another body, pure, appropriate, would not have attracted
Franz Bardon attracted and overloaded himself with pervading
harmful energies for transmuting them before they strike down
harder people… There was a Christic Work he did.
Let all this return under the Veil. Nothing can be added
because the obligation of silence on numerous subjects
was not raised.
He gave us an exceptional Teaching, a precious present which
enables the human being not only to raise towards the Spirit
but also to know and to apply means which open eyes
and ears on subtle Worlds so as he
might detect what crosses it and protect himself
from forces which manipulate those who lead for a long time
Humanity to its ruin … From this point of view, the educative
Mission of Franz Bardon takes part in the Work of Light which
Masters of Wisdom pursued on every last quarter of century;
in fact, if he gave his books on first half of XXth
century, these last knew a real development only on the last
quarter of this same century.
In this very brief outline of the life and mission of Franz
Bardon, we shall conclude with Lumir Bardon, his son :
When my father lived still among us, I did not feel
that he was different from the other people; moreover,
his entourage had the same impression as me. The manner of
being and getting dressed did not distinguish him from a simple
farmer. He perfectly knew how to adapt himself to the part
he had to play on Earth. It was only later, in the Light of
his Work, that I recognized that he was a Giant who came to
bring to the Humanity the Light which would enable it to cross
the darkness of the ignorance and to go towards God.

part of the Humanity, which physically suffered on this terrible
time, evacuated a personal karma and overloaded itself, without
knowing it - but the Soul of each human being knew it – with
these horrible energies which were striking the world.
