ne can only evoke, here and still, the Great Magus, He Who throughout the ages, by different bodies and names, transmitted
to mankind this Illustrious Science.In the past, he was called
Light of Toth and steles, at present destroyed,
related that on the banks of the Nile, young girls,
whilst washing their linen, sang of his splendour which equalled
to a burst of sunshine through the moiré mists of a spring
It was also said :
O Thou, N..., Thou, so young, who
didst make Thee so Great in the eyes of Pharaoh ?
And to this question the response was always the same :
is the Breath of the Great Serpent of Knowledge who alone
has the Power to rise up .
At that time, he was called Heroomos,
which means Child of Heroo, Hôr, Horus,
the Living God. The Greeks transformed his name which became
Hermes Trismegist, Great Three Times over.
He reconstituted all the sparse Knowledge that Egypt had
inherited from Atlantis, purified it, polished it and cast
the foundations of the whole Science.
Then, he appeared in Greece. Secret companion of the Christ,
like the Saviour, he went to Tibet. He travelled everywhere
in the East and in Europe, came to the banks of the Sequana,
to the country of the Gauls and buried in a little island
of this river a stone of mighty electromagnetism so that might
emerge from this spot, in the coming centuries, Life, Culture
and Civilisation. It was Lutetia, our Paris.
Before his wonders, not only by his acts but also by emanation
of his own nature, the Ancient told of him : At
that time, God was amongst Men. Then, the first Christians,
ignoring the profound reality of this Being and the links
which bound him to their Master, shocked by the veneration
that this Great Magus aroused, slandered Apollonius, the Tyanean….
He was known in China, then again several times in Europe,
particularly in the XVIIIth Century and it was always to perfect the Knowledge of
mankind and to illustrate Magic.
When the world had to know in this XXth
Century a conflict between Forces of Light and the miasma
of darkness and because practices of black magic founded one
ideology and supported the bellicose action of certain Nations,
He came again.
Unknown among humans, He counter-balanced (with the aid of
Beings of Light) these demoniac forces, thrown upon our poor
Humanity. As he had done during the previous centuries, he
taught anew with the simplicity and openness of heart of those
who are truly Great and revealed again the true
foundations of Magic.
As extraordinary as this may appear to the reader, I beg
to render homage to one who departed this world in 1958 and
whose name and apparent life were of a banality inversely
proportionate to His Greatness... Franz BARDON.

a Being who have gone beyond, certainly for a long time, our
human condition. We would be tempted to do that and it would
be understandable as far as our neurosises, our weaknesses
and our wanderings could find in this gesture a relief to

a hope in those who look really for a way out while they are
trapped in this labyrinth witch is the current life on Earth,
plunged into disagreements and violence regarding the sharing
out of material goods, dived, in fact, in the ignorance of
what the Universe is and who the human being is too.
Like all the Adepts or Masters of Wisdom, Franz Bardon can
be considered at the same time as a model to be reached and
as a real and not symbolic Protective Being to whom we can
address our thought and our emotion, in our solitary and individual
practice of Magic, this practice which leads indeed to this
very state witch he expresses.
Hermes Trismegistos is the name given to a very Great
Master who lived in the XIVth century
b. J.C. His wisdom and his knowledge were such exceptional
that he was compared with the God Thoth, Lord of the Magic
in Egypt. After about thirty four centuries, it is understandable
that a confusion was made and that this mythical assimilation
Apollonius was born in Cappadoce at the beginning of the first
century of our era and died at a very advanced age. It was
so contemporary of Jesus. His magnificent life was told by
his Disciple, Damis of Ninive, and this story was resumed
two centuries later by Philostratus. Apollonius
was not a thus an embodiment of Jesus as well
as it is asserted besides. Apollonius of Tyane
removed from the usage of the people the pit – diamond
- energy of the Esoterical Tradition of the West and
ordered his Disicples to forward, in the North of India, during
the following century (the second century of our era), manuscripts
most invaluable relative to this Holy Knowledge, before the
cruel devastation which destroyed officially the Antique Wisdom.
the presence of this Master who was embodied also in the XVIIIth
century and whose name Earl of Saint Germain,
amazed the Great Ones of that time, H.P. Blavatsky clarifies :
The Earl of Saint Germain was certainly
the greatest Master of the East whom Europe saw for long centuries.
But Europe did not know him. May be someone will recognize
him during the next Terror (in italic
in H.P.B's text.) which will affect all
Europe when it will arise, and not only a single country.

although very hoarse, of a period of the life of this Great
Magus during the Nazism... He carried out during the last
world war a very important work of occult order while the
Humanity was confronted with a Karma which it drained since
