Savitri Devi Archive Opens

Posted by alex in Nazis, white nationalism at 4:13 pm | Permanent Link

Saturday, 8 April 2006, was the debut of the Savitri Devi Archive (www.savitridevi.org), an online repository for writings and documents related to the philosopher and religious thinker Savitri Devi, born Maximine Portaz (1905-1982). The Archive will eventually make all of Savitri Devi’s writings available. In addition, the Archive contains information and documents on Savitri Devi’s life, as well as works of secondary and collateral literature that illuminate her life and work. The Archive hopes to collect and preserve for posterity fast-disappearing documentation of Savitri Devi’s life, thought, and influence. Our success depends on those who hold such documentation hearing about the Archive. Please disseminate this announcement as widely as possible.

R.G. Fowler,

Archivist

    1. I don't get it Says:

      Quick question: Can anyone explain to me why if she was so pro-national socialism why she shacked up with a hideous looking East Indian man? I haven’t read her works yet but her life seems to contradict National Socialist teachings.

    2. Iranian for Aryans Says:

      Thank you for your pithy question, and statement, as I thought precisely the same thing when I saw her hubby’s pics. Yikes, there sure are a lot of nitwits out there, aren’t there?! Though I have never read her writings, I would surmise – and I think correctly – that she was a raving woman, par excellence. She looked emaciated, and weak. She never had kids, and shacked up with an Ugly!

      Yikes again!

      Devi is popular because “occultism” is popular and the old error that Aryans came from India or thereabouts is still popular. Bullshit doesn’t die hard — it doesn’t die at all. And this Devi, she says a few mystical things about Hitler and preserving Nature, and that makes her worth studying. I say chuck her in the bin and go back to Nietzsche. Dig up a copy of Rosenberg or Chamberlain. We don’t need a “mystical”-minded miscegenite who used the Aryan name to justify her wanderlust.

    4. White Meanie Says:

      It really is stupid to dismiss Savitri Devi because one does not like the looks of her husband. Her husband, Asit Krishna Mukherji, was no Bollywood star, but he was an educated and intelligent man who performed important open and clandestine services to the National Socialist cause. He and Savitri Devi married because, at the outbreak of WW II, she was in danger of being interned by the British as an enemy national. Their marriage gave her British-Indian citizenship. According to Savitri Devi, they had an entirely Platonic relationship, since a sexual relationship was prohibited by the rules of the caste system.

      Nobody claims that the Aryans came from India, but that they came to India from the North West at the same time as other groups of Aryans were migrating westward into Europe and the Near East.

      And I thought I was a meanie!

      re: the comments of ‘I don`t get it’, ‘Iranian’ & ‘Outis’.
      These are some-what un-fair. No-one is disputing the importance of Nietzsche, Chamberlain or Rosenberg. Their works are vital texts for any committed National Socialist or White Nationalist. Devi, however, provided a slightly different perspective: that’s all. For a social movement to succeed, it needs a religious element to appeal to the masses. This has been noted by such luminaries as Revilo P Oliver. WCOTC, for instance, endeavours to provide such a basis.

      Of course, it is the paramount duty of any white man/woman to have AS MANY WHITE CHILDREN as possible. Nature, in Her wisdom, demands NO LESS. That said, there ARE exceptional cases(perhaps one in a million) where the survival, expansion and advancement of the White Race require one to step forward and forgo this most sacred of Nature’s commandments. Adolf Hitler was such a one. Devi was possibly another.
      Hitler devoted his life to his race through politics and Devi did the same through her writings. As for Devi’s ‘marriage’….this was simply a temporary arrangement of convenience to avoid being arrested by the British authorities. And: as for being married to ‘an ugly’…..there’s plenty of white women married to ugly white men anyway! (‘ugly’ in both personality and appearance)

      Works such as ‘Lightning and the Sun’ and ‘Gold in the Furnace’ could hardly be said to promote an esoteric, populist, New Agey ‘occultism’.
      Above all, they are in praise of National Socialism.

      Finally: at least Devi HAD THE COURAGE OF HER CONVICTIONS.
      A small, slightly built woman of (early) middle age was prepared to BUCK the hideous post-Nuremberg ZOG de-Nazification edicts and risk imprisonment and, perhaps even, DEATH for HER BELIEFS…….an epitaph that could not, unfortunately, be reasonably said of many White Nationalists. It is a short list indeed of WNs who are prepared to face the tender mercies of a ZOG Jewdiciary and the even flimsier mercies of a ZOG gulag for THEIR beliefs: the Order, David Duke, Matt Hale, Chester Doles, Zundel, Irving(maybe!), a handful of WNs and ‘skinheads’ arrested and imprisoned over the years in various Israeli ‘colonies’! I, for one, don’t know if I could handle it……so, PLEASE, not so much un-warranted criticism of Savitri Devi……an apostle to the LIGHT!

    6. Outis Says:

      “Nobody claims that the Aryans came from India,”

      As a matter of fact, many still do claim just this, and Devi was one of them, however you want to parse it. You’re clearly in the “ex oriente lux” camp, so I won’t waste time on this. The eastern hypothesis is dead: only non-white Georgians and lib simps here still waste time on it.

      “No-one is disputing the importance of Nietzsche, Chamberlain or Rosenberg.”

      Right. I am disputing the importance of Devi, or sorry, I am denying it categorically, and urging people to read those authors instead of Devi. Simple as.

      “For a social movement to succeed, it needs a religious element to appeal to the masses.”

      VNN isn’t a religious movement, and the masses, as you think of them, are lost to us. Devi belongs on the heap with Asatru, Heathenism, and all such pathetic patchwork paganism. I’m not christer, but it makes more sense to stand by the New Testament than to indulge in silly myth-mongering like this.

      “Of course, it is the paramount duty of any white man/woman to have AS MANY WHITE CHILDREN as possible.”

      So says WN Orthodoxy. I say it’s to kill Jews.

      “Nature, in Her wisdom, demands NO LESS.”

      Sounds to me like you’re demanding something of Nature, here.

      “Adolf Hitler was such a one. Devi was possibly another.”

      That’s hilarious. Subtract Hitler from the equation and what are you left with? Nothing that would stir any interest in anyone today. Devi is entirely dependent on Hitler for her posthumous fame, and even that is just boring religious claptrap. Hitler didn’t want the NSDAP to be a religion, and he didn’t want to be a sun-god or any other damn thing cooked up in the brains of the half-Jew Blavatsky or the mog-marrying poetasteress Devi.

      “Works such as ‘Lightning and the Sun’ and ‘Gold in the Furnace’ could hardly be said to promote an esoteric, populist, New Agey ‘occultism’.
      Above all, they are in praise of National Socialism.”

      So what? Mein Kampf praises NS. That’s all you need. None of that sun-gold-god-nature hippie crap is necessary, it’s just feminine filler. DEVI IS OVERRATED. Bottom line.

      “an epitaph that could not, unfortunately, be reasonably said of many White Nationalists.”

      You’re blaming WNs because they don’t have the chance to “buck” Denazification?

      “so, PLEASE, not so much un-warranted criticism of Savitri Devi……an apostle to the LIGHT!”

      Fag religious talk, that. I’m an apostle to your bullshit and Devi’s.

    7. R.G. Fowler Says:

      Outis is proof that ignorance, arrogance, and narrow-mindedness are not just traits of Christian, Muslim and Jewish fundamentalism, but of NS fundamentalism as well. One characteristic of the fundamentalist mind is the strong urge to reduce the amount of reading necessary to claim enlightenment. In every case, enlightenment depends upon only one book, the fundamentalist’s chosen writ, in this case MEIN KAMPF. Thus, for what it is worth, I totally agree with Outis that Savitri Devi, and the Savitri Devi Archive, are not for people like him.

      I would be most interested to see the names of people who claim that the Aryans originated in India–a claim, by the way, that has nothing to do with the EX ORIENTE LUX notion. The only people I know of who could be construed to claim this are certain Hindu Nationalists who assert that all of Indian culture is indigenous, and therefore deny the existence of an Aryan invasion. But to my knowledge none of them claim that the Aryans who brought their language and culture to Europe and the Near East came from India, although logically, they would have to argue that.

    8. Merovius Says:

      I have a lot of respect for Devi and I enjoyed her work she combined National Socialism and Radical Traditionalism.

    9. R.G. Fowler Says:

      One small note: Savitri Devi should not be called “Devi” for short, as if it were her surname. Devi is actually a title. It is Sanskrit for “goddess,” which is a title that all Aryan women in India are entitled to adopt, Aryans being “gods on Earth” amid the non-Aryan populations of India. The title is analogous to “saint.” And just as we refer to St. Augustine as Augustine for short, not as Saint, we should refer to Savitri Devi as Savitri for short, not as Devi. On its own, Devi or Saint, like mister or doctor, do not refer to anyone in particular.

    10. Outis Says:

      Thanks for the tip, Fowler. You do know your stuff. Unfortunately, I couldn’t care less about what to call her.

      “One characteristic of the fundamentalist mind is the strong urge to reduce the amount of reading necessary to claim enlightenment.”

      There’s that, and the strong urge to cut down on the bullshit. Luxuriance in literature doesn’t make strong, wilful men. And of course I didn’t say MK is the only book to read; I clearly mentioned a whole two (2) other authors. I’m getting all extra-canonical on you, ha ha. Next I’ll be setting up an apocryphal canon with Yockey and so on.

      “I would be most interested to see the names of people who claim that the Aryans originated in India–a claim, by the way, that has nothing to do with the EX ORIENTE LUX notion.”

      Nonsense, it has everything to do with that. A wonder that you can be ignorant of this basic idea and knowledgeable elsewhere. Max Müller was firmly “ex oriente lux” — meaning Sanskrit mislead him to believe Aryans originated in India. Simple as.

      re: Outis

      *I’m not christer, but it makes more sense to stand by the New Testament than to indulge in silly myth-mongering like this*

      what’s the NT ever done for the White Race except con it into thinking niggas and Jews are ‘equal’ to White Men? We need a ‘white religion’ PERIOD….don’t try and deny that Hitler wasn’t working on something along those lines because it’s true and YOU KNOW IT!

      *That’s hilarious. Subtract Hitler from the equation and what are you left with*

      subtract Hitler from the equation and all those other works you cited also don’t amount to much……i never said Devi was more important than Hitler.
      *Of course, it is the paramount duty of any white man/woman to have AS MANY WHITE CHILDREN as possible.�
      So says WN Orthodoxy. I say it’s to kill Jews*

      how’s that gunna happen w/out the necessary troops. Taking on ZOG requires much more than just ‘killers’ just as any army does….it’s 5% killers and 95% support/logistics/infrastructure….THAT rqrs a bigger white population than we NOW have

      *You’re blaming WNs because they don’t have the chance to “buck� Denazification? *

      no i’m saying that Devi was obviously a committed NS. the only way to gauge this is whether or not someone is prepared to endure imprisonment and perhaps death for their beliefs

      *Fag religious talk, that. I’m an apostle to your bullshit and Devi’s*

      hunh? hv a look at yr NT if you want ‘fag religious talk’
      so: anyone trying to understand Hitler from a non-political perspective is spouting ‘bullshit’ according to you?

    12. Outis Says:

      “subtract Hitler from the equation and all those other works you cited also don’t amount to much……”

      Ha. You’ve just shown yourself up here, but I trust savvy onlookers will need no explanation.

      “how’s that gunna happen w/out the necessary troops.”

      Guns. Guts. Glory.

      “don’t try and deny that Hitler wasn’t working on something along those lines because it’s true and YOU KNOW IT!”

      Think what you like, man. I’ve said my piece.
