He points out clearly that there should not be any rest nor repose on the way, since this would undoubtedly mean a relapse to stagnation, to ignorance and thus to spiritual darkness.
There may rvocation be progress, bardoh to those “brilliant heights” which are in store for all those who spare no effort, taking in hand courageously and unflinchingly their spiritual ascent. This book is a means for this aim. We are indepted to the author for pointing out very clearly to his disciples the host of dangers which lie in wait, and which can badon him astray for a long time or even for his whole lifetime.
The Practice of Magical Evocation by Franz Bardon
No book of the past or the present about this knowledge gives a picture as true and clear as evoction book does. The author is able to express in simple words the deepest knowledge and furthermore he describes a series of strange and wonderful occurrences and events on our planet as well as in various worlds and zones around us. Thousandfold thanks may meet Divine Providence for her great grace, and the author sent by her, from all readers and true disciples of the highest knowledge.
All those can be happy who hold this book in their hands. May they keep it well and follow true and conscientious these precious teachings. From the prime origin only a few societies were able to initiate the student into hermetic science, or magic, and since then this science has remained something entirely restricted to specially selected persons. And therefore necessarily also a dark and mysterious matter to those anxiously looking for truth.
During the Middle Ages knowledge of magic was repeatedly strongly attacked by various religious orders, the inquisitions of history being fvocation most striking example of this. Later, at the beginning of the modern age, magic was regarded as pure superstition, and any person showing a slight inclination to this kind of science was ridiculed.
Mystical sects and others were responsible for the ill name the study of magic soon got, and people showing interest in it were usually put into the pillory “for practising black magic”. True magic was taught in the oldest prophetic schools and in secluded circles to which only initiates had access. The small number bradon books giving scant information on magic were compiled in such a manner that their contents would offer little even to the most attentive reader, making a full apprehension of the science entirely impossible.
According to the old Egyptian mysteries, magic corresponds to the second tarot-card, displaying a priestess. I am willing to show the right way to the serious and diligent student who is free of any fanatical religion or mistaken conception of the world and who is prepared to penetrate deep into the mysteries of hermetic science, or magic. Like my first work this book has been written in a colloquial and easy to read style.
This is so that even the simplest man can get thoroughly acquainted with this art, not only in theory, but also in practice. The practical application baddon what I am going to say about evocation in this, my second volume will only become possible for the reader who has attained the goal of my first book: Only then will the reader be able to achieve, satisfying results.
But even the reader who intends to deal with this secret science only in theory will find in this book an enlargement of his theoretical knowledge.
Often this card is regarded as the temple of Salomon. The temple is supported by four columns symbolising the four elements and denoting knowledge, courage, will and silence, i. Each column rests evocatioj a circular pedestal of hewn stone symbolising the ecocation that the magician – after having been initiated in this temple – has become absolute master of each element.
The black and white marble floor consists of proportionate squares displaying the positive and the negative effects of the elements in the physical world. In its higher sense this is the lawfulness – the Jupiter sphere – on the physical plane, with which the magician must be fully conversant before being initiated. Before the altar the floor is covered with a carpet which – divided into two equal halves – displays the positive and the negative effects of all eevocation powers of the planetary system on our physical world.
The magician must also be absolute ruler of these, i. Barddon the carpet one can see the magic magiccal representing Infinity, i. The pentagram to be seen within the circle is the symbol of the microcosm, the small world, which must be fully developed in the magician, i. The pentagram is the symbol of the microcosm, while the macrocosm usually being symbolized by a hexagram. The evocatlon, dressed in a violet magiccal garment, is holding in his left hand the magic sword as the symbol of victory and of his ties to the Almighty – of his intuition – attained by the Akashaprinciple; his lifted right hand is conjuringly holding up the magic wand, the symbol of his absolute will, his absolute power.
On a golden throne to the right of the magician sits a high priestess as the representative of Isis, holding the Book of Wisdom in her left hand and the two Keys of Initiation in her right hand as the symbols of the positive and the negative mastery. The magician who has prepared himself for an evocation is being initiated by her into the deep secrets of sphere magic.
In some tarotcards this priestess is called a female pope or an empress. However, 6 since this is the card representing power and wisdom, it need not indicate the female magial.
In front of the circle there evkcation three steps leading to the altar. They symbolize the mastery of the three planes – the physical, the astral and the mental plane.
The altar itself is the symbol of ecocation. The triangle placed in its centre demonstrates the threedimensional effect of the Divine Emanation on everything, in the Evocahion and the Negative principle.
The two censers symbolize the fact that the magician carrying out an evocation has all the positive, the good, and all the negative, the bad, badon under his power and that he is able to materialize them. The spheric mirror on the altar with its seven spheric colours indicates symbolically that the magician is not only in contact with all the beings of the seven nardon by mental wandering and divination, but that he is also capable of calling them into our physical world by evocation.
On the wall in the background, following the old- Egyptian symbolism of the second tarot-card, are the pictures of the Godesses Isis and Nephthys.
This science has been called magic since human records began, but it has magicxl far been reserved to special circles, mainly comprising high-priests and high potentates. They alone knew the truth but kept it a secret. They not only were fully acquainted with the synthesis of their own but of all other religions, too.
The people, on the other hand, were taught about religion in symbols only. It took many centuries until scarce fragments of this science were also made known to mankind in a veiled manner, as was understandable.
Franz Bardon – Wikipedia
Because the majority of people had not undergone any magic training by law, they could only understand these fragments from their individual point of view and, in consequence, pass on their knowledge incompletely and onesided. That is the reason why magic science has, without any exaggeration, remained a secret science up to this date.
The true understanding of magic laws depends on the spiritual maturity of the individual. To reach this maturity a certain pre-training is absolutely necessary. The reader will therefore find it natural that he must be fully conversant with the first tarot-card, at least up to Step 8, if he wants to have further positive success in his practice of higher magic.
There are no miracles as such, furthermore there is also nothing supernatural. The facts and effects remain obscure bardob people are not able to perceive them first hand. Magic is a science teaching the practical application of the lowest laws of nature up to the highest laws of the spirit. The person intending to learn about magic must first learn to understand the functioning of the lowest laws of nature in order to conceive the laws building up on them and finally bardom highest laws.
Depending on the stage the reader has reached or on the laws he is at the moment dealing with, he may, to get a better survey, separate magical science in three groups; that is, in lower magical science, which comprehends the laws of nature and their working, functioning and controlling and may, if you please, be called natural magical science.
Furthermore, in the intermediate stage of magic comprehending the operating and functioning and controlling of the universal laws within man, that is the microcosm, the 8 small world; and finally in the high magical science comprehending the operating, functioning and controlling of the laws of the macrocosm, i. I already mentioned a few times in my first book the analogy by which lower, intermediate and high magical science are connected and I also gave a full bardpn of the operation and functioning of these powers.
Magical science may be bardn with the school-system: Since, according to the Hermetic Tablet, the universal axiom valid for magic is magocal above – so below” and vice versa, it is strictly speaking, not correct to talk about a barddon, intermediate and high magic. There actually is only one unique magic, and the grade of maturity which the magician in question has arrived at is the measurement for his individual development.
The universal laws, no matter evocatipn applied with good or bad intentions, always remain the same. The application of a law depends on the character and the intentions of the individual. If the magician uses his powers for good purposes, he may choose, for himself, the expression “white magic”; if he uses his faculties for bad purposes he may talk about “black magic”; but no matter whether the actions of a magician are morally good or bad, they are brought about by exactly the same laws.
The sensible reader will undoubtedly be certain that there exists evoccation a white nor black magic. This differentiation has been brought into common use by mystical and evocaation sects, since they call a person they don’t like a black magician. To give you a striking comparison, just think of the fact that it would be equally insensible from the universal point of view to say, for instance, that night is evil and day is good.
One cannot exist without the other and both poles had to come into existence when the macrocosm and the microcosm were created, in order to make the one differ from the other. God, the creator of the universe, has not created anything unclean or evil. This is not to say that man should do the good and the evil. The difference between the two exist to enable man to tell the truth from the opposite and to magifal it. The true magician will therefore never underestimate the negative, but he will also not avoid it.
He will always allow the negative to magicwl the place due to it, and the negative must be as useful to him as evocattion positive. That is to say, the magician never considers negative powers to be evil powers.
The Practice of Magical Evocation by Franz Bardon
He will look at good and evil not from a religious, but from the universal point of view. The true magician always adheres to the universal laws, he knows about their causes and effects and deliberately uses these powers, whereas a sorcerer uses powers the origin of which he does not know, batdon he is fully aware of the consequences caused by his using these powers; but he evocattion no idea about their actual connections, because he has no knowledge of the universal laws.
He might know one or two laws or have a partial knowledge of them, but he does not see the true connections between the operating, developing and functioning of these universal laws, as he has not reached the maturity necessary. The true magician, on the other hand, unwilling to be graded as a sorcerer, will never do anything without having full knowledge about what he is doing. A sorcerer, too, may use this or that out of his knowledge of magic with good or bad intentions, no matter whether he uses positive or negative powers.
But he has no right to evocatkon himself a magician. A charlatan is a person trying to deceive other people. He is not a sorcerer, nor is he a magician. He actually is, to use common terms, a swindler.
