Savitri Devi Mukherji (1905-1982), born Maximine Julia Portaz in France, was a national socialist writer and activist who lived in India during WWII and took a deep interest in Hinduism as the only extant example of Aryan polytheism. After the war, she went on a “pilgrimage” through Europe to sites associated with national socialism and published her magnum opus, The Lightning and the Sun (1958). A foundational text of Esoteric Hitlerism, the book presents a syncretic worldview combining national socialism, anti-humanism, vegetarianism, a Nietzschean rejection of Christianity, both religious anti-Judaism and racial anti-Semitism, the notion of cyclical time found in the Dharmic religions, and biographies of Mongol warlord Genghis Khan (Lightning), the Egyptian pharaoh and sun-worshipper Akhnaton (Sun), and Adolf Hitler (Lightning and Sun). Perhaps most famously, The Lightning and the Sun details the prophecy of Kalki the Destroyer—the final incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu—who will succeed Hitler and end the Kali Yuga (Dark Age/Age of Gloom).
A brief note on the Lightning and Sun concepts, and that of Time. Devi describes Men in Time as Lightning. One who embodies Lightning does not move against the direction of Time and the ongoing decline into a world of violence and suffering, but moves in unison with Time in a way approaching perfection. She describes Genghis Khan, for example, not as a man of any grand ideological principles but one who merely acted in the interest of himself and his kinsmen, and did so with the utmost power and application of that power. Men above Time, who embody the Sun, are those who transcend the conditions of the Dark Age and hold to a truth that is independent of Time. Devi considers Akhnaton, the pharaoh of Egypt who attempted to start a new cult of monotheistic sun-worship, to be the most salient example of Sun. She sees his sun worship as something that is scientifically and metaphysically accurate—and therefore Truth—because the sun is the source of all energy on Earth, and therefore life itself. The religious revolution of Akhnaton died within a generation or so after him, as he had not lived long enough to cement it or been forceful enough in doing so. Finally, Devi considers Hitler a Man against Time—both Lightning and Sun—as he had embraced the violent means of the Dark Age and held an ideology of truth that was against the Dark Age. She describes him as the penultimate avatar of Vishnu, who will be succeeded by someone equally Lightning and Sun (Hitler was more Sun according to Devi).
Historian of the occult Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke describes Devi as “Hitler’s priestess,” which is the title of his biography of her and a fairly accurate description of her vocation. She essentially wanted to create a religion out of national socialism that could be followed during the postwar era to keep the truth and memory (as she saw it) of Hitler alive. This is an extreme challenge on a number of levels in that it entails: 1.) conversion to a new religion, 2.) getting members of the postwar population to embrace national socialism, which is reflexively opposed by most, and 3.) Hitler being an avatar of Vishnu.
I have a better idea, and I am only half-joking. While I find Devi’s theological national socialism intriguing, I think at our stage of the Kali Yuga (which according to her has been ongoing through all of recorded history), we need to adopt an approach which is appropriate to the times we live in and the attitudes of our people and culture. That is to say, I think something like Vishnu-Hitler is just too esoteric for any kind of mass consumption and is better left as a hermetic thing. The interest in the Dharmic religions, however, I think is something worth pursuing, for reasons similar to hers: 1.) they are directly descended from ancient Aryan faiths, 2.) they have resisted the encroachment of Abrahamic monotheism, and 3.) they are present in extant nationalist countries such as Japan and India.
Buddhism as an Indo-Aryan Tradition
Westerners, especially SWPLS, really like the idea of Buddhism (certainly more than the intensely alien Hinduism), which in its purest form is more philosophical than religious and teaches a balance between indulgence and asceticism, and that the meaning of life is to escape from the cycle of rebirth by reaching enlightenment. Comparisons of Jesus Christ and the Shakyamuni Buddha are legion, as both were charismatic leaders who founded religions of escapism. Thus for many Westerners, Buddhism does not feel intensely alien, and syncretism is common. Some people have no issue identifying as “Christian Buddhists,” for example. The the popularity of Buddhism or Buddhist teachings in the West is thus a kind of archaeofuturism, a truth from the past asserting itself in the present.
If I am not mistaken, Buddhism first broke into modern mainstream Western society in the 1960s with the hippie movement, though most of those people deeply misunderstood it as much as they did everything else. The enduring popularity of Buddhism among Westerners—best observed through the proliferation of yoga, meditation, and various forms of counter-signaling against consumerist norms—is interesting as it comes at a time when materialism has reached deeply disgusting and alienating levels—and when strict obedience to monotheistic religious texts and customs is waning (though still dominant). Buddhism thus becomes a natural fit for many atomized people in our society, owing to its radical departure from the norm and message of self-enlightenment. Again though, most Westerners have a completely superficial understanding of Buddhism—one so bastardized it might as well be considered an offshoot set of beliefs centered on being vaguely marxist and anti-tradition rather than committed to enlightenment.
I think elements of Buddhism and its heritage—when correctly understood—could be repurposed in ways pertinent to our cause and fashioned into something appealing. Siddhārtha Gautama (563 BC–483 BC, or 480 BC–400 BC), the founder of Buddhism, was a member of the kshatriya caste (warrior aristocracy) born in the northeast of late Vedic India. He lived in the Kingdom of Magadha, which was an ancient Indo-Aryan state located near what is now Nepal. Buddha is described as having blue eyes and a beautiful complexion, which to this day in the East—even before the time of modern European colonialism—means fair and light skin. The physical appearance of the Buddha indicates he must have had Aryan ancestry even centuries after the ancient migration into India.

Thus Buddhism has roots in our distant pan-racial past, albeit a non-European one. Savitri Devi considered the Buddha to be a Man above Time (rather than a Man in Time or a Man against Time) as he had a conception of the world opposed to the Kali Yuga, but was not willing to use the methods of the Dark Age to achieve it.
Overview of Buddhist Philosophy and Cosmology
An extremely basic overview of Buddhist beliefs is necessary at this point. I will not attempt to detail the various sects (Theravāda, Mahāyāna, Vajrayāna, Tibetan, Zen) but provide general concepts shared by them, or most of them. If Buddhists of one sect believe something Buddhists of another sect reject, one can still say Buddhists believe it. From the top, Buddha taught that there are three kinds of suffering in earthly life:
- Suffering caused by pain (especially bodily)
- Suffering caused by change (e.g. the loss of something enjoyed)
- Suffering caused by conditions (e.g. fear, anxiety, dependence, lack of control, loneliness, etc.)
More famous are the Four Noble Truths he taught:
- Reality of Suffering – the three sufferings of pain, change, and conditions
- Cause of Suffering – having a false attitude towards reality, such as desire or ignorance
- End of Suffering – awakening to the truth
- Path of Ending Suffering – the Middle Way (or the more detailed Eightfold Path of right view, intention, speech, action, livelihood, effort, mindfulness, and concentration)
Some elaboration on ending suffering and the path to ending suffering is necessary. Nirvāna is the end of suffering brought about by awakening to the truths of non-duality, emptiness, and non-self, among others too varied or localized to fairly cover from a religion over 2000 years-old and spread across all Asia. Nirvāna means escape from samsara, the cycle of death and rebirth. The Middle Way, or non-duality, is an understanding of cosmic order that relies on balance between extremes, e.g. hedonism and asceticism, self-indulgence and self-deprivation. Emptiness is the understanding that there is nothing intrinsic to existence of anything. Non-self, more accurately a kind of interdependence, is the understanding that you have no permanent self.
In other words, one can strive to end their suffering through changing their thoughts and deeds in a lifetime to align with the Buddha’s teachings. This may lead to nirvāna, the complete escape from suffering, or reincarnation into a new life which is closer to that nirvāna.
One area in which a lot of popular Western conceptions of Buddhism go horribly wrong is understanding the end of suffering as meaning a state of comfort. But this is really just an extension of our false-obsession with comfort and convenience as the greatest things in life. So these Buddhism enthusiasts take the religion as a means of becoming comfortable, by meditating or spending less money on consumer goods, and by using Buddhist teachings as justification. If one had understanding of non-duality and impermanence they would know the opposite of suffering isn’t merely comfort, and moreover they would know comfort is a temporary state, which will be succeeded by the pain of not being comfortable. In fact, being too attached to the idea of comfort would be a disastrous detour from the path to nirvāna and could leave one worse off.
In Buddhist cosmology there are six major realms of life, most of which are located on Jambudvīpa, the great world-continent of humanity and other animals. Achieving nirvāna is most possible for mankind because they already exist in a kind of balance between the heaven and hell realms. A human could become liberated in one lifetime, or move down or up in the cosmic order. Downward, one could be reborn into a lower station or caste (racial or class), or as an animal, an evil spirit, or in hell. Moving upward, one might become higher caste, or a god or a demi-god in the holy mountains, or achieve nirvāna and become totally liberated from death-rebirth cycle.
One’s conditions of rebirth are contingent upon their karma, which means “action” in Sanskrit but in actually refers to a broader cause-and-effect system. Based on one’s actions of body, speech, and mind (or intention), he accumulates good or bad karma (in addition to karma carried over from unknowable past lives). Karma is generated constantly throughout one’s life, and determines lifespan, quality of life and events in life. This doesn’t mean that generating good karma is the ticket to a better life across the board, as karma from past lives can still have an impact. Dying with bad karma leads to a regressive reincarnation while good karma leads to a progressive reincarnation—or it should unless bad deeds of past lives were bad enough to cancel out any good of the current life.
The implications of a karmic world as opposed to the world of anthropomorphic gods are massive, and too much to deal with here, but suffice to say a world in which our stations are given to us by the choices of our pasts (in the broadest sense) rather than from a top-down source of authority seems to me an archaeo-Darwinian conception of cosmic order. And karmic reincarnation, while at first a strange notion to Western man, is not actually that unthinkable either given how the Semitic religions followed by most of mankind, such as Christianity, believe in bodily resurrection of the faithful to live in communion with the creator god and among some sects damnation in a hell realm as punishment for earthly sins. That certainly bears a strong similarity to Buddhism. And thinking Darwinianly, are we not reincarnated in our descendants, who will carry expressions of at least some of our genetic material for all their lives, just as we carry that of our ancestors? Reincarnation is thus more real than resurrection from this perspective.
Lastly there are some practical issues concerned with achieving nirvāna. It is the teachings of the Buddha, or dharma, which lead to awakening from samsara, the death-rebirth cycle. Dharma is another Sanskrit word, but there is no single rendering into English. “Cosmic law and order” is one possible interpretation, and sometimes the expression buddha-dharma is used for clarity. Now of course, the Buddha no longer exists in a way we can learn from him personally, which means the buddha-dharma must be conveyed some other way. This is where the concept of the bodhisattva comes in, often understood to be a Buddhist analogy to the the Christian saint. This is partially true if one limits their category of Christian saints to the evangelists, such as St. John or St. Patrick. A bodhisattva is a great teacher who is yet to reach enlightenment, and teaches other the dharma necessary to liberate themselves. Upāya, or “skillful means,” refers to the liberative technique used by the bodhisattva so that his student(s) can understand the dharma.
Because of karmic differences between all living beings as a result of their accumulated karma over all lifetimes, there is no single way to perfectly teach the dharma so that it is comprehended and leads to awakening. A bodhisattva needs a deep understanding of karma in order to teach others the dharma so that they may understand it, based on their own circumstances. Recalling the Christian evangelist-saints, some are believed to have used miracles to teach the Gospel, the Good News. Others, such as St. Patrick, had what a Buddhist would call upāya—consider the shamrock used to explain the triune god to illiterate peasants so that they might “be saved” in Jesus Christ. Was that not a skillful means of conversion? To this day the shamrock remains a symbol of Christianity in Ireland almost 2000 years later…
Much of Buddhism (and other Dharmic religions) is very fanciful and miraculous sounding to the postmodern ear, and so we cannot in good faith take most of it as anything more than allegorical of some eternal truth being expressed in a particular way shaped by the space, time, and society it flows from. But my intentions above in providing this survey of Buddhism were not to convince you of the truth of all of Buddhism or that you should adopt it—rather I sought to explain the basic concepts as I understand them so that you might understand them (or my understanding of them).
Skillful Means as Skillful Memes
I think the concepts of skillful means and teaching others so that they might achieve enlightenment are very important, and that Buddhism frames them in a way that can deeply resonate with people. For those of us involved in White nationalism and the Alt-Right, the value and importance of the war of ideas, metapolitical warfare, is tantamount. It is necessary to teach people our truths—truths about race, sex, society, culture, and the fate of the West—and to skillfully do so with finesse and impact. We embrace whatever methods that we’ve been furnished with or seek out innovative ways of using them, with the goal of converting people to our cause—the global liberation of our race from suffering under hostile occupation. From Twitter, to comments sections, to naive reporters, to printers and fax machines, we turn no vehicle of communication away.
The movement has grown tremendously over the last year, owing in no small part to the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, and the effective use of him as a springboard for our message. His abrasive style, nationalistic fervor, and paternal-authoritarian ethos approach the kind of sovereign power that would be necessary to achieve victory over our enemies, which terrifies them. His entrancement of the media through 4D chess has brought us ancillary spotlight, as highly-trafficked media outlets broadcast our unfiltered propaganda into the ether. They assume they are merely drawing attention to “evil racist Trump supporters” in an attempt to discredit him, but in practice they are broadcasting our memes. They cannot bring themselves to suppress the Truth, for it shocks them so much after years of dormancy.
What has enabled the substantial growth of the Alt-Right and nationalism are skillful memes, our skillful means in the form of crafting quality propaganda ideas and images which can be consumed and forwarded across the screens and minds of the people. I was quoted in the New York Times earlier this year about the glorious liberative technique of our skillful memes:
Take it from the alt-right bloggers themselves. The movement is “winning the meme war,” an alt-right blogger calling himself Lawrence Murray wrote last month.
I, a humble effortposter, having worked for our cause scarcely a year, had his name and prose ascended to the heights of American journalism, through no more efforts than I would have expended any other day on any other content I write.
And I was not alone. We have had a number of successes reported in the mainline press, which seem to transcend ordinary explanations for a movement that largely does not exist outside of social media and bars. From outlets covering the term “Alt-Right” (which has 15,000 results on Google News up from virtually none last year and its own Wikipedia page), to getting (((establishment climbers))) to identify themselves on social media using the triple parentheses from the taken-down Coincidence Detector plugin for Google Chrome, to the Tay AI controversy, to the spread of the #cuckservative meme, to Donald Trump retweeting a stylized portrait of himself as Pepe the Frog, the memes have prevailed.
Pepe depicted in the form of Donald Trump, retweeted by the man himself.
And that is when things get interesting. When we know that the memes have taken on a superhuman will of their own that simply cannot be controlled. When we have entered the realm of meme magick, the occult world of metapolitical subversion. That is when we know we have born witness to an incarnation of the ancient Egyptian frog god of chaos, Kek, who expresses himself in our time to the youth of nation through meme magick, in the avatar of Pepe the Frog.
Pepe as an Avatar of Kek, the Source of Meme Magick
An early depiction of Pepe in black-and-white.
The story of Pepe the Frog begins in 2005, when he was merely a anthropomorphic frog created by American cartoonist Matt Furie. Pepe appeared in a comic book called Boy’s Club, which depicted the life of four NEET roommates. He became a popular meme on a certain imageboard and was later taken up by normies on blogging platform associated with intersectional feminist basketweaving.
Because Pepe was humorous, people would reply “kek” to images they enjoyed, with “kek” itself being a meme-ish way of saying “lol” that derives from the orcish race of World of Warcraft. Pepe, of whom there are endless variations and meme mutations both common and rare, received tremendous keks from the people across the world wide web. But many of those who had taken up Pepe as their meme were idolators and vile normies.
An Atlantic Centurion original Pepe.
Thankfully, the trve right launched a campaign to retake Pepe from the heretical normies and restore him to his chanological birthplace as a chaotic and politically incorrect meme. The big moment came during the Republican primaries, when Trump retweeted a Pepe version of himself, which only made our enemies even more flustered. At this time, Pepe had already become known as a “nazi frog meme” that #frogtwitter users and members of the Alt-Right were using to spread propaganda and troll leftists and Jews.
Olivia Nuzzi from the Daily Beast, who our goys have trolled on Twitter, wrote an article about a single fucking Trump tweet in May called “How Pepe the Frog Became a Nazi Trump Supporter and Alt-Right Symbol.” She quotes @JaredTSwift at length:
“In a sense, we’ve managed to push white nationalism into a very mainstream position,” he said. “Trump’s online support has been crucial to his success, I believe, and the fact is that his biggest and most devoted online supporters are white nationalists. Now, we’ve pushed the Overton window. People have adopted our rhetoric, sometimes without even realizing it. We’re setting up for a massive cultural shift.”
Many keks were had by the Alt-Right when this article was published. And it was not the only of its kind. Now millions of normies knew that Pepe did not belong to them, that he was a property of the nationalist right and untouchable as it would destroy their status-siganling ability if they associated with him. Pepe had trascended the normies.
Kek in human form, right.
So how does this become esoteric? Well, Kek is also an Ancient Egyptian pagan god. He is one of the eight primordial deities of the Old Kingdom, a god of darkness representing the unknown and chaos that come before the light. Moreover, in his male form he is depicted as a frog or a man with the head of a frog. Now, no one deliberately made the kek-yielding Pepe into Kek; it just kind of arouse out of the ether, which is what makes it so interesting. If one acknowledges the notion of cyclical time believed by the non-Semitic religions of the world, one can understand that the nationalist Pepe meme is a return of Kek the chaos-bringer, who may well represent Kalki the Destroyer, bringer of the end of the Dark Age.
Kek is the deity of chaotic meme magick, which is a form of metapolitical prayer and will-to-power. Metapolitics is the process of trying to change the culture and values of a society as opposed to pure political activism. And Pepe is a modern-day icon of Kek, who shitlords project their wishes unto and send icons of into the digital ether.
Memes are in their original definition things or phrases people believe in. So meme magick, essentially, is the repetition of memes enough to change the memes that other people believe in, or memeing something into reality. The meme becomes a mantra, something chanted to generate karma.
The explosive growth of Pepe, his association with the nationalist right, and his estrangement from the normies solidified his place in the esoteric tradition. The normies had tried to seize upon this avatar of Kek as a source of mindless and indifferent entertainment, but Kek reasserted himself as on the side of Truth and liberation through the chaos of meme magick. Thus, Pepe became inaccessible to the normies, for in rejecting the Truth they had rejected Kek, and could no longer try to lay claim to a “nazi frog meme.”
Kek as the Bodhisattva of Aryan Nirvāna
What Kek does for us, should we offer our voices and our keystrokes to him, is bless us with the tempered chaos of meme-upāya—skillful memes—to spread our ideas among our people. These ideas we spread are the kek-dharma—the redpill if you will— and the teachings necessary to understanding the world and achieving our rightful independence in it. Kek manifests himself to us in the avatar Pepe, a bodhisattva, a great spirtual teacher of the truth and wisdom of national liberation through the application of meme magick. With his meme-upāya, Kek teaches us how karma generated by memes as a mantra will help us to achieve liberation. Liberation means an end to mosaic samsara—the cycle of death and rebirth which destroyed the Roman Empire, collapsed the Holy Roman Empire into a spiral of sectarian violence from which it never recovered, and devoured the Third Reich. And this cycle continues through the ongoing invasion of Europe by the third Semitic monotheism, Islam.
Only by understanding the kek-dharma can the goyim realize complete and total Aryan Nirvāna, Aryan liberation, which is brought about by the creation of the karmic nation.
Free of mosaic samsara, the karmic nation will reject the psychological terrorism of third-worldism (ethno-masochism and xenophilia), and be a place where the glorious deeds and memories of our ancestors can be restored and their will-to-power reincarnated into our descendants. No more will racial suicide be spoken of as a noble ideal in a state governed by those with meme-upāya, where the kek-dharma has achieved its rightful place as the acknowledged truth and cosmic order, in a karmic nation.
The karmic nation, by continuing the archaeo-Darwinian work of rebirth into higher forms approaching total perfection and liberation from suffering, will allow us to forge our people into Übermenschmaterial. Such will be the path to complete liberation, Aryan Nirvāna.
It is the Kek the Bodhisattva who can teach our people these truths, if we are willing to listen and to commit ourselves to the generation of meme magick through karmic morality and through the mantra of memes. By refusing to cuck and by rejecting the foul mindsets of our invaders and terrorizers, we will move the nation away from its suffering under the pains of hostile occupation, and closer and closer to its final rebirth. If instead, our people cuck and adopt the foul mindsets, they will generate not Aryan karma but further mosaic samsara.
The trve power of skillful memes is to meme the karmic nation into reality, the process of meme magick. By spreading and repeating the meme mantra, it is possible to generate the karma needed for the rebirth of the nation.
The manifestion of the karmic nation will be possible only through the birth of Men against Time, of whom there will be more and more as the kek-dharma spreads, through the relentless application of skillful memes and of righteous adherence to the kek-dharma, which as I have said will generate karma. When our people are filled with the Lightning and the Sun, when they possess both meme-upāya and the kek-dharma, the coming of the Aryan Nirvāna will be at hand and the karmic nation shall be unstoppable.
Praise Kek, the bringer of chaos and skillful memes. Bless us with the meme-upāya to make the karmic nation a reality.
Hail Victory and Aryan Nirvāna.
