Of Comparing “The Great Initiates” Editions on the First World (Race) War

In the Service of our Ancestors and African Love,
Listen Seeker, I come in peace,

A little more than a century ago a Frenchman by the name of Volney wrote an eloquent book entitled: “Ruins of Empires.” It so delighted the scholars of the day that it was translated into English and a special edition went across the Atlantic, to be known as the American edition. The translator, out of respect to the feelings of Americans respecting the black race, left out the following quotations: “There are a people, now forgotten, discovered, while others were yet barbarians, the elements of the arts and sciences. A race of men ejected from society for their sable skin and frizzled hair founded on the study of the laws of Nature, those civil and religious systems which still govern the universe.” Years after, when Volney mastered the English language and discovered how the truth had been surrendered to prejudice, he requested that all future editions contain the suppressed words or else the entire work be taken out of print.

This incident, which so clearly manifests the attitude of the early Americans toward the truth concerning the black race, has scarcely changed with passing years. Today there is not a single book printed in the English language that tells the wonderful work of the archeologists in Africa, Asia, and Europe, and how this work has vindicated the African race as the real founder of human civilization.

— George Wells Parker, “The Children of the Sun” (1918)

In lieu of purposeful mistranslations, I’ve discovered a curious specimen dealing with the Ancient War between Africans and Europeans. In “Ancient Future,” Wayne B. Chandler quotes “The Great Initiates” by Édouard Schuré but puts the publishing information as 1882 by San Francisco: Harper and Row Publishing. Considering “The Great Initiates” is a translation of “Les Grands Initiés. Esquisse de l’histoire secrète des religions” which was published in 1889, the “1882” date is unlikely, nevermind that “Harper and Row” which is now HarperCollins was not established as “Harper and Row” until 1962, starting out as J. & J. Harper in 1817. Research into when “Harper and Row” published “The Great Initiates” points me to 1961, the same year that Rudolf Steiner Publications printed “The Great Initiates.” The thing is that Rudolf Steiner’s version is freely available on the internet and from what I read of the 1902 and 1905 editions of “The Great Initiates” (which are also freely available) Rudolf Steiner’s is a close translation of the 1902 and 1905 editions. On the other hand, HarperCollins, which was recently purchased by another European, no longer sells its version; what’s more I have not seen the 1889 version online.

Why is this important? In the Harper and Row translation (and I suspect the original), the story of “Ram” is better explained. Ram (or Ramayana) is the First Organizer of Europe against Africa. In the better explanation, Ram first studies among Africans then invades India (by way of Iran); in the 1902, 1905 and Rudolf Steiner’s 1961 Ram’s studies are not mentioned, and it’s supposed that he’s spreading a belief indigenous (not foreign) to Europe. This is meant to confuse Africans and Europeans alike. As such, I will compare and comment on both translations starting with the Rudolf Steiner in Red, the Harper and Row in Black and my comments in Green. I will also bold where the two versions are near identical.

This addresses the real first World War in India around six-thousand-years ago, when Africans suffered our first defeat after over a thousand years of combat and our reign of the world ended. Despite quality, both versions relate our Race as “ancient conquerors of the red and yellow races” and we know from a modern view of India, the caste system enforced after this ancient war has lasted since, where Dravidians, the descendants of Ancient Africans, are forced to “reincarnate” as untouchables until Africans remember the War and regain Power. There’s much to learn in old texts. I will aid our Wisdom.

Of Comparing “The Great Initiates” Editions on the First World (Race) War
By Onitaset Kumat

In this dream, as in a flash of lightning, Ram saw his mission and the great destiny of his race. From that moment he no longer hesitated. Instead of igniting the spark of war among the peoples of Europe, he decided to take the best of his race into Asia. He announced to his people that he would institute the cult of the sacred fire, which would bring about mankind’s happiness; that human sacrifices would be abolished forever; that ancestors would be invoked no longer by bloodthirsty priestesses beside savage rocks dripping with human blood, but in each home, by husband and wife joined in a single prayer, in a hymn of adoration, near the fire which purifies. Yes, the visible fire of the altar, symbol and conductor of the invisible celestial fire, would unite family, clan, tribe and all peoples — a center of the living God on earth. But in order to reap this harvest, it was necessary to separate the good grain from the tares; it was necessary for the bravest to prepare themselves to leave Europe in order to conquer a new land, a virgin country. There he would issue his law; there he would establish the cult of the regenerating fire.

Ram saw his mission and the great destiny of his race. From that moment he no longer hesitated. Instead of igniting the spark of war among the peoples of Europe, he decided to take the best of his race into Asia. Ram striving after divine science, had traveled into the southern countries where the priest of the black men had revealed part of their secret knowledge to him. Upon returning to the northern country he began to impart the knowledge of the sacred fire to his race in hopes of putting an end to the cult of human sacrifice, which was increasing among his people, for he saw in this the ruin of his race.

From the former translation (Rudolf Steiner), we gather how Ram had redirected European Tribalism from Europe to Asia (where Africans ruled) where credit for his revelation is given to his spreading “the cult of sacred fire.” The latter translation clarifies that “the cult of sacred fire” is the result of Ram’s studies among African people who “revealed part of their secret knowledge to him” which he returned to European people in order to stop European Human Sacrifices, ironic as it shows human sacrifices were indigenous to Europeans and foreign to Africans, the reverse of what Africans are taught today. What’s more, from the former translation, it’s shown that European “Ancestral Communication” was bloody yet African “Ancestral Communication” inspired Europeans to pray from the home in a hymn of adoration. To wit, this European imitation is not the best means of prayer (as praying in shrines is more in line with our numerous practices) yet it shows the contrast between “Mastery and Imitation” as well as why interracial secrecy is utmost. The European never studies for studying’s sake but to dominate another people, usually Africans the Master-Teachers. When the Europeans warred with Africans in India, they skinned the Africans alive and drank blood from our skulls. As stated earlier, the Africans in India are still oppressed over five thousand years later. It looks light on this page, but in sharing African Wisdom with Europeans, our global undoing was set into motion. Ironically, modern “European Wisdom” (if it can be called that) among Africans is maintaining our global undoing. We must Sankofa, “Maroon and Build For Self!”

This proposal was received enthusiastically by a young people, yearning for adventure. Lighted fires, kept burning for several months on the mountains, were the signal for the mass migration of all who wished to follow the Ram. The tremendous migration, directed by that great shepherd of peoples, slowly started to move, departing in the direction of Central Asia. Among the Caucasus Mountains were several Cyclopean strongholds of the black men which had to be captured. In memory of these victories, the white people later carved huge rams’ heads in the rocks of the Caucasus.

Lighted fires kept burning for several months on the mountains where the signal for the mass migration of all who would follow Ram. The tremendous migration directed by the great shepherd of peoples slowly started to move departing in the direction of Central Asia towards the Caucasus Mountains where there existed several cyclopean stronghold of the black men, which had to be captured.

These two are near identical. They display how easy it is for Europeans to recruit among themselves and invade another land. This is a people whose entire Culture (means of Survival) is based off of Warfare. It’s important for Africans to realize that this hasn’t changed. Today, America spends over 60% of its GDP on Warfare, where its ships cost more than its schools and most every hero ever learned about is a murderer in some fashion or another and War marks every generation. Contrary to public sentiment, Europe is no better–it’s worse, for America is Europe and Europe has an ancient line of savagery unparalleled by any people. The European is quick to War. Never believe any aren’t.  Europeans who preach peace mean War as to Europeans and Asians “All Warfare is based on deception” (Sun Tzu.)  As a rule, if it isn’t deceptive it isn’t White.

Ram proved himself worthy of his great mission. He smoothed out difficulties, read thoughts, predicted the future, healed the sick, calmed the rebels, set courage aflame. Thus the heavenly powers which we call Providence willed the rule of the northern race on earth, and by means of Ram’s wisdom, cast shining light upon its path. Lesser inspired leaders had already rescued this race from its savage state. But Ram, who first conceived of social law as an expression of divine law, was truly a straightforward, inspired man of the highest order.

He made friends with the Turanians, old Scythian tribes who inhabited upper Asia, and led them in the conquest of Iran, where he completely repelled the black men, for he intended that a people of unmixed white race would inhabit Central Asia and become a center of light for all others. He founded the city of Ver, which Zoroaster called an admirable city. He taught men how to till and sow seed in the soil; he was the father of cultivated wheat and of the vine. He created classes according to occupations and divided the people into priests, warriors, laborers and artisans. In the beginning, the classes were not at all rivals. The hereditary privilege, source of hatred and jealousy, was introduced only later. He forbade slavery as well as murder, stating that slavery was the cause of all evils. As for the tribe, that primitive grouping of the white race, he preserved it as it was, allowing it to elect its leaders and judges.

Ram’s crowning work, the pre-eminently civilizing instrument created by him, was the new role he gave to woman. Until that time, man had considered woman either as a wretched slave whom he overburdened and brutally mistreated, or as the turbulent priestess of the oak tree and rock, from whom he sought protection and who ruled him in spite of himself — a fascinating, dreadful sorceress whose oracles he feared and before whom his superstitious heart trembled. Human sacrifice was woman’s revenge against man, when she sank the knife into the fierce male tyrant’s heart. Outlawing this horrible cult and reestablishing woman in man’s estimation in her divine function as wife and mother, Ram made her the priestess of the hearth, the guardian of the sacred fire, the equal of her husband, the one who joined with him in calling upon the souls of the ancestors.

Like all great legislators, Ram did nothing more than develop and organize the great instincts of his race. In order to enhance and beautify life, Ram ordained four great yearly festivals. The first was that of the spring or of generations. It was dedicated to the love of husband and wife. The festival of summer or of harvest belonged to the sons and daughters, who offered the fruit of their labor to the parents. The festival of autumn feted fathers and mothers; they then gave fruit to their children as a sign of rejoicing. The holiest and most mysterious of festivals was Noel, or the great sowing-time. Ram dedicated it both to new-born children, the fruits of love conceived in spring, and to the souls of the dead, to the ancestors. A point of connection between the visible and the invisible, this religious observance was both a farewell to souls in flight, and a mystical greeting to those who returned to be reincarnated in the mothers, to be reborn in children. On this holy night, the ancient Aryans assembled in the sanctuaries of Airyana-Vaeia as they had formerly in their forests. With fires and chants they celebrated the renewal of the earthly and solar year, the germination of nature in the heart of winter, the trembling of life before the abyss of death. They sang of the universal kiss of heaven given to earth, and the triumphant birth of the new sun from the great Night-Mother.

Thus Ram linked human life with the cycle of the seasons and with the movements of the stars. At the same time he emphasized its divine significance. Because he founded such productive institutions, Zoroaster called him “the leader of peoples, the most blessed monarch.” This is why the Hindu poet Valmiki, who places the ancient hero in a much more recent period, surrounded by the luxury of a more advanced civilization, nevertheless preserves in him the characteristics of such a high ideal. “Rama with lotus blue eyes,” said Valmiki, “was lord of the world, master of his soul, and the object of men’s love. He was the father and mother of his subjects. He knew how to bestow upon all beings the bond of love.”

Once settled in Iran, at the gates of the Himalaya Mountains, the white race was not yet ruler of the world. It was necessary that its vanguard push onward into India, the main center of the black men, ancient conquerors of the red and yellow races. The Zend-Avesta speaks of this march of Rama on India. The Hindu epic makes it one of its favorite themes. Rama was the conqueror of the land which the Himavat encircles, the land of elephants, tigers and gazelles. He ordered the first attack, and led the first thrust of this colossal battle in which two races unconsciously contended for the scepter of the world.

He made friends with the Turanians, old Scythian tribes who inhabited upper Asia, and led them in the conquest of Sumer where he completely repelled the black men, for he intended that a people of unmixed white race would become a center of light for all others. Ram then pushed onward into India, the main center of the black men, ancient conquerors of the red and yellow races. He ordered the first attack and led the first thrust of this colossal battle, in which two races contended for the scepter of the world.

The former translation is clearly much more robust. Within it are many insights into European people, including the true meaning of “Christmas” as an Organizing tool for Europeans against Africans. However all of it merely affirms Cheikh Ante Diop’s “Two Cradle Theory” wherein he differentiates Europeans as Patriarchal and Enslaving of Women whereas we are Matriarchal and our Women are Emancipated. Furthermore, as I explain in my summary of Europeans in “Occidentals” they are a people “rooted in mythology.” The former translation raises Ram above men and claims he evinces how Divine Providence willed that Europeans ought rule the World. Recall however that these Europeans invaded African Kingdoms and skinned survivors alive and flung that skin over the destroyed buildings. It’s noteworthy how Ram “befriends” the Scythians, one of the most barbaric people in History. He then goes on to divide Europeans into the same four classes in African Kingdoms (priests, warriors, laborers and artisans) though true to European Nature this returned to Tribalism (as I predict in “Occidentals.”) Further his “crowning work” is the emancipation of women a common feature of African Culture; this is interesting only because the description shows how Human Sacrifice was an instrument of European gender warfare. It is said he forbade slavery and murder, yet considering Ram led the invasion against India where our enslavement is ongoing it’s clear this ‘forbading’ didn’t apply to Africans. True to its intent on confusing readers, the former translation credits Ram as “organizing the great instincts” of Europeans which is true in the sense of he’s rallying for War but false in the sense of he’s infusing African Culture into Europe. Later the translator gives insight into the Festivals Ram introduced wherein Noel, the Winter Festival, is the most notable. Those who were attentive a month ago observed that “Noel” is a name still associated with “Christmas.” Not ironically it deals with rebirth too, showing how this tradition brought about to wrestle “the scepter of the world” from Africans is still celebrated thousands of years later-by us no less.

Little more needs to be said.  Wayne B. Chandler adds that Shure is accurate in the portrayal of events and the period, yet “the legendary warrior Manu, the lawgiver and Aryan savior” could be substituted for Ram.  For us, most important isn’t the name but how Ram gained the divine sciences from Africans and with this brought about the end of our World Reign.  This was World War One.  We lost the scepter of the World then.  We can accept this genocide or return to glory.  Who is with me on the latter?

  1. A very interesting Article King Onitaset. I would like to add my thoughts as to why the white race feels the need to invade the lands of other races to claim ownership of these lands.

    Europe is NOT a continent. The so-called ‘Continent of Europe’ exists in the Continent of Asia. Great Britain and Ireland are in fact islands off the coast of Asia. The white race is the only race without a continent and not only does that explain why the white race is the only race to have forged ahead in violent conquest to take over the continents of Asians, Indians, Africans and Aborigines, but it also begs the following Questions: Where do white people belong? Do they belong on earth? Could they be from outer space?

    The white race is without question the most violent of all races… and it doesn’t have a Continent of its own. There must be a reason as to why.

    1. Peace Queen-Mother,

      Your commentary is very insightful. Although, I can not say why the crocodile spends its days in a water or why the wolf prefers the snowy climates. I can speculate, but I can only say what I observe.

      It is true. Europe is the same land mass as Asia; the very particular will say “all of the ‘Old World’ is one land mass.” But I can not say it’s because Europe is a part of Asia that this White Race is as evil as it is. Some things are beyond my Knowledge and for that I am glad.

      Another interesting fact however is that the “East Asian” isn’t indigenous to Asia as we think they are. The earliest dynasties of China, for instance, were African dynasties. The European is one invader. So too is the Asian.

      It may be these people are just immoral.

    2. Gwiz. I am certainly not an expert on “europe” or “whiteness.” I only wonder, like yourself, at what exact point or location, the one becomes the other

Please ask any questions that come to mind
