Franz Bardon is jagique of the most important but least frnz occultists and magicians of the Twentieth Century. He is mainly known through four books he wrote which were published in the ‘s. Many have borrowed his techniques and terminology without giving him proper credit, sometimes unknowingly, but not always. I recommended his book “Initiation Into Hermetics” to a person who had studied occultism for some years.
He was stunned to find that a teacher of his in the past had distributed Bardon’s materials pretending he had written mmagique himself. Bardon was unusual in that he stressed practice and practicality above all else. Although his books contained lengthy theoretical sections, his emphasis was on the tangible, usable results of magickal training.
His stated purpose was to give the serious student of magick the most complete and best possible magickal instruction obtainable outside of an occult lodge and without the benefit of a personal teacher.
The only way to judge is by trying his curriculum yourself. Bardon did not appear to be trying to create a legend about himself. The only self-references in his works are occasional attestations that he had himself tried this of that experiment or ritual. I can’t resist comparing this to a much more famous magician of this century who wrote voluminously about his own life and adventures, and had no qualms about glorifying himself in so doing.
According to his student and close friend Otti Votavova, Franz Bardon was the oldest of 13 children, and the only son of a very maglque Christian mystic, Viktor Kagique. Although he had achieved a certain amount of spiritual advancement, Viktor felt that he was unable to obtain and advanced initiation, and prayed that he receive this blessing.
The story is that an inltiation soul entered the body of his son Franz to become Viktor’s initiator. In later life, Bardon became a stage magician who gained some fame in Germany in the ‘s and ‘s under the stage name “Frabato”. Magkque Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party ascended to power in the ‘s various groups such as the O. Apart from this, Hitler and some of his intimate friends were supposed to be members of the “Thule Order,” which was the external instrument of a group of powerful Tibetan black magicians.
Through the negligence of one of Bardon’s disciples who had not destroyed their correspondence as Bardon had ordered the Nazis arrested and imprisoned them both in late or early While the prisoners were being whipped, the disciple lost his control and uttered a Qabalistic formula to immobilize the torturers.
However, the effects of the formula were eventually canceled and maagique disciple was shot as revenge. Adolf Hitler offered Bardon high positions in the Third Reich under the condition that he help win the war with his magick.
Bardon was further iniyiation to reveal to Hitler the address of the other 98 of the 99 Lodges spread all over the world. When he refused to help, the Nazis cruelly tortured abrdon. Among other things, they performed operations on Bardon without anesthesia, and forged iron rings around his ankles and fixed heavy iron balls to them.
After the war Bardon found, with the help of his magick abilities, that Hitler had escaped abroad. For fear of recognition, Hitler had undergone several of surgical operations on his face. Dieter Ruggeberg publisher of Bardon’s books makes this comment on the above statements: In the years of my acquaintance with her I was able to convince myself of her love of truth. After regaining his freedom, Bardon recommenced his occult work and healing.
Who Was Franz Bardon?
It was apparently this last work that got him in trouble with the Czech authorities. They strongly discouraged this type of thing in the very repressive political climate of postwar Czechoslovakia.
Regarding Bardon’s last years, Ruggeberg wrote to me as follows: He was able to cure cancer until the 2nd degree, without steel and rays, only with his own medicine made from plants and treated with alchemical means.
For this reason the doctors of the official medicine became very jealous, because they could not reach such success with their chemical and nuclear treatments. After the publication of his books ina number of people came from Germany to visit him. The doctors took this opportunity to accuse Bardon to be a spy from the West, and that was the reason he was arrested in in Opava, Czechoslovakia. Bardon died July 10th, What connection, if any, his death had with the arrest I have been unable to determine.
If he was a professional stage magician in Germany in the ‘s and ‘s, we could assume that he was born roughly around the turn of the century, and thus would not have been very old at his death.
Bardon stoutly maintained that he was not a member of, nor under any obligations to a magickal lodge or order. However, some sources indicate that he was actually a member of the Fraternity of Saturn, an important occult lodge which flourished in Germany in the early part of the 20th Century. During the ascent of the Nazi party, they closed or persecuted all Masonic, religious and occult organizations. They closed and banned the Fraternity of Saturn Lodge sometime between andbut it was revived in I have not yet been able to positively identify Bardon as a member of the Fraternity of Saturn.
Franz Bardon / Magic
While recognizing the power and validity of sex magick, Bardon magisue discourages the student from dabbling in it until he understands its full implications. Each book follows a roughly similar pattern: Reading and understanding them is a challenge, as they have been translated from German-and possibly from Czechoslovakian before that-into non-idiomatic English.
Translational difficulties aside, one thing that makes an enduring impression is Bardoh evident sincerity. He insists frequently that he is doing as much as possible to transmit a system of occult development to the serious student who is either unable to find a teacher or work in a group.
In line with bardkn, he also frequently reiterates that he has personally performed such and such an experiment, mabique or procedure.
Before describing some of Bardon’s theories, it is good to keep in mind that many of the words he uses have different meanings in a mundane context and even in other occult systems. Impregnation, fluid, condenser, sphere – all have special meanings. For instance, Bardon appears to have originated the concept of the so-called “fluid condenser.
A “condenser” is a magick wand, mirror, or other device the magician crafts to “condense”, or concentrate, these fluids. An example of preparing a fluid condenser is given later in this article.
Many of his occult ideas can be traced to earlier works, such as Eliphas Levi and Barrett’s The Magus. Bardon also seems to have been familiar with Tibetan occultism, or at any rate the works of Alexandria David-Neel, whom he cites now and then, and from whom he does a fair amount of borrowing.
He mentions, for example, kylichors magickal diagramsand tum-mo the ability of Tibetan adepts to stay warm in freezing weather. The mental exercises Bardon prescribes, such as one-pointedness, watching the roaming of consciousness and so on, are commonplace in yogic and other occult works. Although Bardon does not mention Crowley or any of his writings, “The Beast’s” influence is present. Compare Crowley’s famous dictum: Bardon postulates an energetic model of the universe modified from Far Eastern theories, including Taoism and Hindu cosmology.
His “electric” and “magnetic” fluids compliment each other in the same way that Yin and Yang do. These barson clearly not the physicist’s forces by the same names, but there is a certain analogy between them. Whatever the scientific validity of this approach, it is certainly rich with suggestive possibilities.
Bardon’s “od” or “odyle” energy, which Baron Karl von Reichenbach originally developed in the mid’s. The negative pole of a magnet, he claimed, appeared blue to persons with high psychic sensitivity and induced a feeling of coldness.
The positive pole appeared red and had the property of warmth.
He elaborated this theory into a highly complex system of occult anatomy and mysticism. Bardon usually called od “vital power” [“lebenskraft”], but once or twice reverts to the term “od. Bardon teaches that each part of the body is governed by either the electric or the magnetic force, or it may be neutral. Disease is caused by parts being out of balance. His attributions of the elements are essentially the same as those in other systems and books.: Water for emotions, intuition; Fire for aggressiveness, passion, etc.
In his view, the skillful magician was one who could manipulate the Elements to achieve desired effects. Of course, before the student could become master of the Elements, he had to harmonize and control the manifestations of all Elements in his own being. Bardon taught that man was superior to all spirits, demons and angels in that only man was a “four-pole” being – that is, combining the energies of all the Elements.
For instance, gnomes are strictly creatures of Earth, sylphs of Air and so forth. He cautioned the student to beware of tricks and deceptions on the parts of these creatures, who wished to capture a part of the human’s soul.
He also instructs the student to re-dissolve the akasha into the inigiation rather than keep it accumulated. In other words, the “magickal” frame of mind should not be the same as the initiatiin one. A pillar of Bardon’s method is the point that the magician must be balanced in the Elements that make up his own being. A student with an initiaion or lack of any Element could not achieve great success, no matter how much work he does. An analogy would be an auto engine: After a point, the engine will either wear out quickly or initiatikn if you attempt to make it perform beyond its limits.
The difference with humans is that our limits are self-imposed. Bardon also insists on the point that the student begin farnz the beginning and not skip any section of his training. The student must completely master each step before proceeding on to the next. Again, the analogy to other endeavors is clear. If magick is a skill like flying, then the student cannot neglect the study of airplanes, weather, safety, avionics and so forth, without serious difficulties in the future.
Finally, as many teachers say, the student must keep a complete and accurate record. Without this, it is hard to repeat successes and avoid repeating mistakes. Although Bardon divides his praxis into ten steps, these are somewhat arbitrary. Here is a summary of his main points:. As mentioned above, the student must work diligently on understanding and harmonizing the four Elements within his own being before doing any further occult work.
Bardon prescribes several weeks of minute, mercilessly honest self-observation and recording of one’s faults and failings.
The student classifies each under the four Elemental categories to see which Elements are out of balance in his Self. A similar initiaion classifies his virtues and strengths.
