Miguel Joaquín Diego del Carmen Serrano Fernández (10 September 1917 – 28 February 2009) was a Chilean diplomat, explorer, and an author of poetry, books on spiritual questing and Esoteric Hitlerism. Serrano's anti-modernist and neo-Gnostic philosophy elucidates the otherworldly origin of the Hyperborean-descended Aryans, image-bearers of the godhead, and a global conspiracy against them by an evil inferior godlet, the Demiurge Yahweh-Jehovah, worshipped by the Jews, lord of planet Earth, spawner of the primitive hominid stocks and all base materiality. He foremostly synthesizes the Hindu-Vedic and Nordic-Germanic religious traditions -- both of which he regards as of ancient Aryan-Hyperborean provenance -- in addition to particularly esoteric and racialist interpretations of Buddhism, Christianity, Luciferianism, and Gnosticism. Serrano is especially indebted to the Jungian theory of collective racial archetypes and follows Savitri Devi in recognizing Adolf Hitler as an avatar (divine incarnation) who battled against the demonic materialistic hosts of the Kali Yuga.

Kerry R. Bolton in 2015 wrote that "there have been post-war attempts to portray National Socialism and the Third Reich as manifestations of some type of occult force. Included in this is the more sober attempt by the Chilean diplomat Miguel Serrano, whose “esoteric Hitlerism” included the worship of Lucifer, as a god of light, and of Shiva as the equivalent of Wotan, and of the “esoteric Hitlerism” of the Greek convert to Hinduism, Savitri Devi. [...] Among the colleagues of Wiligut was Otto Rahn, around whom there has been much mythologizing due to his esoteric expeditions ranging from southern France to Iceland. In particular it is because Rahn was a “Luciferian,” insofar as he believed that Lucifer, the “Light-Bringer” was a good spirit in opposition to the Jewish God Jehovah. His main book was entitled Lucifer’s Retinue: A Journey to the Good Spirits of Europe. Not surprisingly, such a topic provides plenty of scope for writers of pop-history in attempting to portray the Third Reich as a “satanic” conspiracy or as evoking “satanic” forces. However it is a Gnostic heresy rather than Satanism, such heresies regarding Jehovah as “Satan” and Lucifer not as Satan but as an enlightened antagonist. [...] These heresies provided a fanciful basis for post-war Hitlerites such as the Chilean diplomat Miguel Serrano to develop a cosmological view of National Socialism that is “Luciferian” and Gnostic."[1]


Early years

Born Miguel Joaquín Diego del Carmen Serrano Fernández in Santiago de Chile. Educated at the Internado Nacional Barros Arana from 1929 to 1934. Originally embracing Marxism and writing for left-wing journals, he became quickly disillusioned with Communism and was drawn to the Movimiento Nacional Socialista de Chile (M.N.S.), a Chilean Nationalist Party (headed by Jorge González von Mareés). In July of 1939 he publicly associated himself with the M.N.S. (then renamed Vanguardia Popular Socialista-Popular Socialist Front), writing for its journal Trabajo ("Work").

After the German invasion of the Soviet Union, in July of 1941, Serrano began his own biweekly political and literary review called La Nueva Edad ("The New Age"). Originally ambivalent about criticizing Jewish criminal behaviour (possibly to avoid being labeled as an "Anti-Semite"), Serrano discovered and began to publish material from The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in early November 1941. Later Serrano would transmute the Jewish world conspiracy into a metaphysical one by identifying Yahweh, in the tradition of the Gnostic Cathars, as the evil principle in itself, the Demiurge, lord of shadows and ruler over our fallen planet.

In late 1941, Serrano was introduced to a Chilean esoteric order owing allegiance to a mysterious and far-flung Brahmin elite centered in the Himalayas. This mystico-martial order practiced ritual magic, tantric and kundalini yoga linked to Nietzschean concepts of the will to power and fascist activism. He was initiated into the order in February 1942. Cult members regarded Adolf Hitler as a savior of the Indo-European or Aryan race. The order considered astral travel and higher states of awareness as the natural ancestral heritage of all pure-blooded ("twice-born") Aryans. The order's master, "F.K." (a German immigrant to Chile), described Hitler as an initiate, a being of boundless and unprecendented will power (shudibudishvabhaba), a boddhisatva who had voluntarily incarnated on earth in order to overcome the Kali Yuga; he claimed to have been in astral contact with Hitler.

Serrano accompanied the Chilean Army and Navy on their expedition to Antarctica in 1947-48 as a journalist, obscurely prompted by popular speculations as to Hitler's survival in Antarctica. The stark and lonely sublimity of the polar region exercised a permanent influence on Serrano's mind. He made his first visit to Europe in 1951, still obsessed by the enigmatic figure of Hitler. Serrano visited and brooded over the ruins of the Berlin bunker, Spandau Prison and the ruins of Hitler's Berghof in Bavaria. In Switzerland, he met and befriended Herman Hesse, the well-known, Nobel Prize-winning German Romantic writer, and C.G. Jung (Goodrick-Clarke, p. 177). Jung's pre-war psychoanalysis of Hitler being a "spiritual vessel, a demi-divinity, a myth" and an embodiment of the "collective unconscious of his race" (C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters, edited by W. McGuire and R.F.C. Hull) greatly influenced Serrano's worldview. He and Jung passionately exchanged thoughts on the meaning of mythology and archetypes in the modern age of dehumanizing mass technocracy. These encounters with Hesse and Jung culminated in his book, C.G. Jung and Hermann Hesse: A Record of Two Friendships.

Diplomatic Work and Later Activities

In 1953, following a family tradition, Serrano entered the diplomatic corps and held various ambassadorial posts for Chile during the Ibáñez, Alessandri and Frei administrations from 1953 to 1970, in the countries of India (1953-62), Yugoslavia (1962-64), Romania, Bulgaria, and Austria (1964-70).

To Serrano, India seemed a source of secret, forgotten truth. Serrano immersed himself in its spiritual heritage. He sought out the secret Siddha order of his Chilean master in the Himalayas, the journey of which he describes in his poetic book: The Serpent of Paradise. According to the book although Mount Kailas (where it had its seat) was inaccessible in China|Chinese-administered Tibet, Serrano claims he had discovered the "inner" aspect of Mount Kailas. He met many leading Indian personalities through his official position and personal charm, becoming close friends with Nehru, Indira Gandhi, and the Dalai Lama of Tibet (Goodrick-Clarke, p. 177).

Serrano was Chile's representative to the International Atomic Energy Commission and United Nations Organisation for Industrial Development (UNUDI). He was dismissed from the Chilean diplomatic service, in late 1970, by Marxist president Salvador Allende. Remaining in exile, he rented an apartment (previously inhabited by Hermann Hesse) at Montagnola in the Swiss Ticino (Goodrick-Clarke, p. 178).

While ambassador in Vienna and subsequently in Switzerland, Serrano contacted and cultivated ties of friendship with Léon Degrelle, Otto Skorzeny, Hans-Ulrich Rudel, Saint-Loup, and Hanna Reitsch. He paid visits to Julius Evola, Hermann Wirth, Wilhelm Landig and Ezra Pound (Goodrick-Clarke, p. 190). In 1973, the same year in which Pinochet led a successful coup-d'état against Allende's Marxist regime, Serrano returned to Chile.

Serrano was present at the Santiago funeral of SS Colonel Walter Rauff, in May 1984. He convened a rally in Santiago on 5 September 1993, in honor of Rudolf Hess and in memory of the Chilean national martyrs of 1938. He had correspondence with National-Socialist leaders, such as Matt Koehl.

Esoteric Hitlerist

Hitler's birthday, 20 April 1989

Serrano defines himself as an Esoteric Hitlerist, which he has defined as a new religious faith, "able to change the materialistic man of today into a new idealistic hero" and "much more than a religion: it is a way to transmute a hero into God."

In 1984, Ediciones la Nueva Edad in Santiago, Chile published his 643 page tome, Adolf Hitler, el último avatãra (Adolf Hitler: The Last Avatar), which is dedicated "To the glory of the Fuehrer, Adolf Hitler." In this immense, deeply arcane work, Serrano unfolds his ultimate philosophical testament through elaborate esoteric and mythological symbolism. He explains there has been a vast historical conspiracy to conceal the origins of evolved humankind. There were extragalactic beings who founded the First Hyperborea, Serrano states, and the last documents relating to them were destroyed along with the Alexandrian Library. These beings have been misunderstood as extraterrestrials coming in spaceships or UFOs. The First Hyperborea was more spiritual than material and outside of the jurisdiction of the demiurgical realm. The demiurge created pathetic proto-human creatures like Neanderthal Man and intended for his creatures to endlessly reincarnate on the earthly plane to no higher purpose. But the Hyperboreans refused this slavish entrapment within the Demiurge's circles and at death would take the devayana, the Way of the Gods, returning to the earth as Bodhisattvas only if they thus willed. The primordial Hyperboreans were super-sexual and reproduced through spiritual plasmic projections; the Vril power was theirs to command, the light of the Black Sun coursed through their veins and they saw with the Third Eye.

Later, a second Hyperborea was made around the North Pole as the Hyperboreans began their war against the mechanical universe of the demiurge. During this Golden Age or Satya Yuga, the Hyperboreans magnanimously instructed the lower Black, Yellow and Red races native to the planet. Then disaster struck: some of the rebellious Hyperboreans intermingled their blood with the bestial creatures of the demiurge, and thereby Paradise was lost through this transgression. Serrano refers to Genesis 6.4: "the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them." As the outward counterpart of the primordial miscegenation, the North and South Poles reversed positions as a result of the fall of a comet or moon. Serrano regards the mysterious appearance of the fine and artistic Cro-Magnon Man in Europe as evidence of Hyperboreans driven southward by the Ice Age. In the then-fertile Gobi Desert another group of exiled Hyperboreans established a fantastic civilization.

The world thus becomes the dualistic combat zone between the dwindling Hyperboreans and the demiurge and his forces of entropy. As Serrano states, There is nothing more mysterious than blood. Paracelsus considered it a condensation of light. I believe that the Aryan, Hyperborean blood is that--but not the light of the Golden Sun, not of a galactic sun, but of the light of the Black Sun, of the Green Ray. Serrano states the Golden Age can be reattained if the Hyperborean Aryans consciously repurify their blood to restore the divine blood-memory. In the book, Serrano fuses Nordic runes and Hindu chakras, and explains how, by means of certain practices of yoga, one can re-enter the Black Sun through mystical death, in which a new light is perceived: the Green Ray. (According to Sufi Abdul Karim al-Jili, the primal prophet Al-Khidr rules the "Men of the Invisible" who have remained untouched by Adam's fall in the Far North, the "Earth of Souls"; this region is the location of the mysterious cosmic mountain Qaf, at the summit of which is the "emerald rock" and where the midnight sun shines; see Henry Corbin, Spiritual Body and Celestial Earth, pp. 71-2). But this type of astral self-transcendence is limited to those whose blood retains the memory of the ancient White, Hyperborean race (cf. [1]). Serrano praises the Indo-Aryan Brahmins for preserving their occult blood heritage through the caste system, and refers to Bal Gangadhar Tilak's thesis of the Arctic-Hyperborean home of the Aryan peoples. The principle of preservation of the higher blood-memory is similarly attributed to Hitler and National Socialism.

From the dawn of time the demiurge has warred against the Hyperborean legacy. According to Serrano, the main historical instrument of the demiurge in this metaphysical warfare has been the Jewish people. Serrano's identification reaches far back into philosophical history, as the adversarial role of the Jews was a fundamental point in the ancient Gnostic worldview ([2]). As religious scholars Frederick C. Grant and Hyam Maccoby emphasize, in the view of the dualist Gnostics, "The Jews were regarded as the special people of the Demiurge and as having the special historical role of obstructing the redemptive work of the High God's emissaries" (Collier's Encyclopedia, Vol. 11, 1997, p. 166). Serrano thus considered Hitler as one of the greatest emissaries of this High God, rejected and crucified by the tyranny of the Judaicized rabble like previous revolutionary light-bringers. In Serrano's eyes, the Jews are technological black magicians, merciless manipulators of all earthly institutions and have created this-worldly, rationalistic, mechanistic modernity as a dissolutive principle to disinherit the Aryans from their birthright in a higher cosmos. But the Thule Society and its successor, the Hitlerian SS, intended to reverse this trend of decay. Serrano describes Hitler not only as an avatar but a Buddhist tulku, a divine being worthy of nirvana who has chosen to come back to the human level to aid in salvation. He analyzes the SS as an esoteric-initiatic order intent on reviving the Holy Grail of Hyperborean blood and performing theognostic rituals in its symbolic, neo-feudal center of Wewelsburg. Serrano reflects on defilement of blood as the implicit cause underlying all the great wars, from the strife between the Kauravas and the Pandavas in the Mahabharata, the Vanir and Aesir in Norse myth, and the great war of 1939-1945. As bastions of Jewish power and promiscuity in modernity, Hitler opposed the communist Soviet empire and the corrupt Western liberal democracies in his attempt to defeat the demiurge and redeem the White race.

In Serrano's view, the military defeat of the Third Reich is only an external loss. In actuality, Hitler dedicated his energy during the war to experiments in "magical realism", such as secret contact with Tibet, dematerialization, designing of flying saucers, submarine exploration in the Arctic and advanced scientific research in the Polar regions. Serrano believed that Hitler survived the fall of Berlin through an underground passage to enter another world:

Had the German submarines discovered at the North Pole or in John Dee's Greenland the exact point through which one penetrates, as through a black funnel, going to connect with the Other Pole, emerging in that paradisal land and sea that are no longer here, yet exist? An impregnable paradise, from which one can continue the war and win it--for when this war is lost, the other is won. The Golden Age, Ultimate Thule, Hyperborea, the other side of things; so easy and so difficult to attain. The inner earth, the Other Earth, the counter-earth, the astral earth, to which one passes as it were with a "click"; a bilocation, or trilocation of time.

Translator's Foreword

We enter here into a great mystery of mysteries, on the threshold of eternity. Don Miguel Serrano was no ordinary man. A truly factual biography of him is never likely to be written, because the stakes for those who rule this world are simply too high. But let it be known that his mysterious Brahmanic Order was in the forefront and at the heart of the greatest developments of the latter half of the 20th Century. Literally millions fought and millions lived and died in the great struggles for which Miguel Serrano served as the gray eminence and directing hand from one end of our planet to the other. We can safely say that the over-all destinies of the previous two generations of humanity were very largely in his masterful hands, at least for those with some awareness of the role that has been played in those great struggles by the many secret services and special forces of which he was the true Grand Master.

We may say that for over a quarter century Miguel Serrano guided the fortunes of the so-called Cold War and, more than any other man then alive, determined the hidden forces that led to the inexorable decline and fall of the late Soviet Union. The growing contemporary isolation of the Zionist entity is also, in no small measure, his magnificent achievement. That these and numerous other great events are unlikely ever to be traced to Serrano is in fact the greatest tribute to his most singular ability. If the greatest triumph for the warrior is to win without his enemy so much as noticing who and what has led to their downfall, then the author of this Most Holy Book is in humble truth among the great warriors of Chile and of all time.

When we reflect that Miguel Serrano was the friend and chosen successor to the great SS-Obersturmbannfuhrer Otto Skorzeny and that he received his personal command from He who was the only One greater still than Skorzeny himself, then we can begin to appreciate that we are here most literally in the presence of the Divine.

In this rarest of books we may find the true, pure and fearless words and thoughts of Wotan. No one will read this book and emerge from it the man he was when he began the reading. Don Miguel spares none and, exactly like a God, like Wagner and Nietzsche, speaks to us on a level far above the quarrels and passions of mere sects and parties. Rather than debate whether Miguel Serrano were Pagan or Christian, we would be wise to understand that this book is a New Revelation that has destroyed such now meaningless distinctions. Henceforth we are all Pagans and none Pagans, all Christians and none Christians, because from this time, of the Black Sun of 2012, we are in truth henceforth and forever now Esoteric Hitlerists or we are nothing at all.

A Fifth Gospel now dawns over our White Race and this Sacred Book is that Holy Scripture. Here the Gods Return to speak to us, here the Christ Returns among us to tell us our past and our future.

Beware all ye who enter here, for the great words of power contained within shall haunt you forever.

In these pages the Lord commands His People.

Brother Francis, Franciscan Solitary in the Brahmanic Order of Kristos-Lucifer-Wotan.

Soli Deo Gloria.

Heil Hitler!
