03 Nov Mythic Treasures and the Holy Grail
There’s always more than meets the eye … Especially in Maier files.
Leni Riefenstahl’s 1932 film titled “Das blaue Licht” (The Blue Light) tells the mythic story of a girl, a witch to the local townsfolk, who guards mysterious blue crystals in a mountain cave. Those drawn to the area suffer an awkward death. This resembles to what happens to the treasure-seekers pulled to the Schleigeiss Glacier in Austria –> read this post: https://the.maier-files.com/a-heavy-guarded-treasure-buried-at-zillertal/
This loner girl, meets a painter who betrays her and together with greedy villagers he steals all her crystals and destroys the cave. She is totally devastated at this violation of the sacred grotto and of her trust in the outsider and falls to her death.
Like the heroic Dietrich, the Knight of Berne, or even Don Quixote only one with love in his heart can retrieve the mountain goddess’ treasures. In the loftier parts of Eschenbach’s Montsalvat Temple, hidden behind a shroud, the seeker may find the celestial Grail the place where the Absolute reveals its secrets as on the blue peak of the mountain of Kaila – Tantric Buddhists believe that Mount Kaila is the home of the Buddha Demchok who represents supreme bliss. It is said that Milarepa (c. 1052 – c. 1135 AD), champion of Tantric Buddhism, arrived in Tibet to challenge Naro Bön-chung, champion of the Bön religion of Tibet. The two magicians engaged in a terrifying sorcerers’ battle, but neither was able to gain a decisive advantage.
In his book “Kreuzzug gegen den Gral” Otto Rahn recounts an old legend of an ancient lake between what later in history would become Montsegur and the peak of Thabor in the Pyrenees mountains. Montsegur was the site of a razed stronghold of the Cathars.
The pond is called the Lake of Sins. At this place, the tale tells us that the druids threw gold, silver and precious stones into the waters. It was claimed to be the mythical treasure of the Temple of Delphi. In 279 Brennus, the Celtic leader, led his troops into Greece to raid. The Oracle told the townsfolk of Delphi that Apollo would not allow them to suffer. Mysterious storms and lights protected Delphi. But there are accounts that say that the Celts were indeed victorious and plundered the Temple treasures bringing them back to the city Tolosa (nowadays Toulouse) – and to their mountain strongholds in the Pyrenees. But because the Temple spoils were stolen, they were cursed. Then suddenly and inexplicable the Celts began dying in numbers. Never before such sudden illness struck the Celts. One healthy in the morning could turn up dead at night. The druids divined that the people would never get well unless the treasure was disposed of. They adviced the Celt mountain folk to throw away the Delphian spoils as a gift to the subterranean goddess of Life and Death. The people brought everything to the lake and plunged it in its depths. The Druids then traced a magical circle around the loch. Promptly, all the fish disappeared and the waters became pitch black and the illness disappeared.
In medieval times the Philosophers Stone was also called “La Toison d’Or”, the Golden Fleece. There’s always been a connection between the Golden Fleece and the Holy Grail. Wolfram von Eschenbach wrote that Parsifal was looking for a stone, the Lapsit exillis. For those on the path the joys of paradise are to be found in the stars … “The possession of the Golden Fleece uplifted the Argonauts towards the stars”.
Rahn wrote in “Kreuzzug gegen den Gral” that a part of the treasure of Solomon, was brought to Carcassonne by the Visigoths after Alaric sacked Rome on august 24 – 410 A.D. Spanish romances tell that the “Table of Solomon” was hidden in the magical cave of Hercules (one of the Argonauts) in the Pyrenees. The gold of Tolosa has some echoes of the Golden Fleece and the legends of Hercules. Rahn as Eschenbach, believed that Hercules found the crown-piece of “Lucifer” or the Philosophers Stone.
Hercules during his famous Labors seduced and slept with Pyrene, the virginal daughter of king Bebryx and then he abandoned her. Pyrene, fearing the wrath of her father, fled to the woods and gave birth to a snake. Alone, she pours out her story to the trees, attracting the attention of wild beasts. In desperation Pyrene called out to Hercules but he arrived too late, the beasts already teared her to pieces. His lamentations reverberated to the echo of the name Pyrene! Struck by Herculean voice, the mountaintops shudder at the ridges; he kept crying out with a sorrowful noise ‘Pyrene!’ … and all the rock-cliffs and animal haunts echo back ‘Pyrene!’ … The mountains hold on to the wept-over name through the ages. The Pyrenees mountains …
About the Solomon link, there exist a document called the Ancient Charges, which appeared soon after Freemasonry had brought to England by James I and his Scottish Court. This document is all about the pre-Flood races and how these peoples foresaw the disaster and preserved the knowledge of their sciences on two pillars, one resistant to water and one resistant to fire. The manuscript by J. Whytestones of 1610 one can read that one of those two pillars was found by Hermes Trismegistus which led to the development of the Egyptian civilisation. The other pillar was re-discovered by the Judean people during the construction of the Temple of Solomon.
There’s much more to this, to be continued …
