Esoteric Nazism is an umbrella term used to describe various mystical interpretations and adaptations of Nazism in the post–World War II period. After 1945, esoteric elements of the Third Reich were adapted into new völkisch (i.e., neo-pagan) ersatz-religions of white nationalism and Neo-Nazism.
Just about each of these quasi-religions is in fact a form of escapism. In other words, founders of these religions create fantasy worlds into which they and their followers are escaping from the hostile, depressing and otherwise emotionally and spiritually empty modern materialist and relativist secular world.
One example of esoteric Nazism is “Esoteric Hitlerism” developed and preached by French born Greek-English writer Savitri Devi (born Maximiani Portas). She integrated Nazism into a broader cyclical framework of Hinduism and considered Hitler to be the ninth Avatar of Vishnu. In her writings and lectures, she called him “the god-like Individual of our times; the Man against Time; the greatest European of all times.
Another major figure in Esoteric Hitlerism was Miguel Serrano, a former Chilean diploma twho wrote numerous books on the subject including “The Golden Ribbon: Esoteric Hitlerism” and “Adolf Hitler, the Last Avatar”.
In these books, he claims (among other things) that Adolf Hitler did not commit suicide in Berlin on April 30th, 1945 but instead escaped to Shambhala, an underground center in Antarctica, where he resides with the Hyperborean gods and from whence he would someday emerge with a fleet of UFOs to lead the forces of light (the Hyperboreans, sometimes associated with Vril) into the last existential battle with the forces of darkness (inevitably including the Jews) in a last battle. After the decisive victory in this existential battle he will inaugurate a Fourth Reich which will last for millennia.
Obviously, this is a modern variation of a well-known medieval German legend. According to this legend, the Holy Roman Emperor (and the King of Germany) Frederick I Barbarossa, did not die in June of 1190, but is asleep with his knights in a cave in the Kyffhäuser mountains in Thuringia.
His eyes are half closed in sleep, but now and then he raises his hand and sends a boy out to see what’s going on in his beloved Germany. And when he sees that Germany and the whole Holy Roman Empire (i.e. the whole Christian European civilization) faces an existential threat, he will wake up, lead the mighty army of his German knights into the existential battle, win this battle, save Europe and restore Germany to its ancient greatness.
There were unconfirmed rumors that Adolf Hitler considered himself a reincarnation of Frederick I Barbarossa. But given the fact that he named his most important military endeavor (invasion of the Soviet Union on June 22nd, 1941) Operation Barbarossa and previously named one of his houses after Frederick I, there might have been some truth to the rumors.
In other words, it is quite possible that Adolf Hitler, indeed, viewed himself a reincarnation of Frederick I Barbarossa, chosen by the Almighty Providence (and possibly by the German gods) to save Germany from the existential threat of Bolshevism, to fight and win the existential battle with the Bolshevist Soviet and to restore Germany to its magnificent glory.
And although he lost World War II, he did save Germany and the whole Europe from being destroyed by Bolsheviks and – albeit very temporarily – did restore Germany to its former glory.
A slightly less outlandish (than Miguel Serrano’s) modern version of that legend sounds something like that. The Western civilization does, indeed, has a very powerful (almost omnipotent) Guardian Angel (whom Adolf Hitler perceived as Providence).
Some Christians believe that this angel is actually Saint Michael the Archangel – the commander-in-chief of the Army of God in its existential battle with the forces of Satan.
This Guardian Angel did choose Adolf Hitler as the commander-in-chief of the Forces of Light (i.e. Wehrmacht, Waffen SS and the armed forces of the European Axis powers) in their existential battle with the Forces of Darkness (i.e. the Bolshevist Soviet Union). Whether Hitler was or wasn’t the reincarnation of Emperor Barbarossa was totally and completely irrelevant.
Although the Axis powers lost World War II, they won this existential war and thus saved Germany, Europe, the Christian Church and the whole Western civilization from being invaded, conquered, destroyed and transformed into the alternative [demonic] civilization – the global Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
Now (according to this legend) the Western civilization once again faces the existential threat. This time the external threat from Islamic radicals (“Islamists”, “Islamic supremacists”, “jihadists”, “Islamo-fascists”) and the internal threat from “useful idiots” (useful to Islamic radicals that is) – liberals, globalists, multiculturalists, preachers of “tolerance”, supporters of “open borders” and unlimited immigration, etc.
Like Joseph Stalin eight decades ago, Islamic radicals intend to invade, conquer, occupy and destroy the global human civilization (with assistance from the “useful idiots”) and replace it with the global totalitarian Islamic State.
But instead of the mighty Red Army, Red Navy and Red Air Force they will use very different weapons. Massive immigration by Islamists (disguised as “refugees”), fast and massive procreation (“the womb of a Muslim woman”) and ISIS-style jihad.
According to the legend, the Guardian Angel is well aware of this existential threat. So he will send (or have already sent) into our world the commander-in-chief of the Forces of Light who will fight and win their existential battle with the Forces of Darkness (i.e. Islamic radicals and their “useful idiots”).
Whether this individual will be a reincarnation of Adolf Hitler or simply his emissary in our world “in flesh and blood” is totally and completely irrelevant. It is also irrelevant what kind of uniform he will wear (feldgrau of SS-Oberst-Gruppenführer or Wehrmacht general, other uniform or civilian clothes), what would be his nationality, etc. The function will be important, not the packaging.
The Nazis (and especially Heinrich Himmler) actually created not one, but two Third Reich entities – tangible (physical) and intangible (spiritual).
Tangible Third Reich was destroyed by the victorious Allies in May 1945. The intangible Third Reich is alive and well and – when it becomes necessary – will help the Forces of Light defeat the Forces of Evil (i.e. Islamists and their “useful idiots”).
Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler and other Nazis did not go to Hell – or Heaven, for that matter. Neither did they go to Purgatory. Instead, they went to Valhalla – a special place in a spiritual (intangible) world reserved for the warriors that were fighting to protect the Western civilization from the existential threat.
From their residence in Valhalla, they can communicate with the individuals in our world (directly) and with our world as a whole (via portals such as Wewelsburg).
