If some people doubted Agarttha’s reality, that happened only because they didn’t know how to surpass the limits of their individuality and of the profane world. Agarttha doesn’t belong to the profane geography and cannot be found by a tourist or paparazzi. Like the Heavenly Kingdom, Agarttha has to be found first within our heart, and only then it will appear as an award of our spiritual realization. Only by completing an initiatory journey and a spiritual realization, the deepest center of the heart will unveil itself as identical with the subterranean center, and only then we can enter the invisible palace of the Lord of the World. Indeed, that is what René Guénon transmitted to us. The same as a human being (considered as an individual) can symbolize the Universal Man, so the various centers can symbolize the supreme Center. Yet the supreme Center, the veritable Agarttha, cannot be reached but at the very moment when the individual passes beyond its limited condition and realizes the state of Universal Man.
It is neither the place nor our task to emit judgments regarding the individuality order, but we have to mention that, after Guénon’s death, some of his “collaborators” were very active to reduce Guénon’s work at the profane level. Marco Pallis, for example, who was encouraged and helped by Guénon in his traditional studies, wrote a curious article against Guénon’s Le Roi du Monde; Pallis tried to prove that Agarttha and the Lord of the World were just results of Guénon’s imagination, that nobody heard in India or Tibet about Agarttha and the Lord of the World. Our present study, Agarttha, the Invisible Center, regards this topic. There is an extraordinary incomprehension about the symbolism of the Lord of the World, about what really Guénon transmitted in his fundamental book Le Roi du Monde. Marco Pallis is one of the examples of this incomprehension, and our work tries to decipher the profound symbolism of Agarttha and of his Lord, based on the traditional lore René Guénon transmitted through his writings.
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
