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.
Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
