Hitler devoted much effort in pursuit of the legendary Holy Grail. The Holy Grail is supposedly the cup or dish used by Jesus at the Last Supper, preserved by Joseph of Arimathea, who brought it to Europe. In occult terms, The Holy Grail represented a path to Transcendental consciousness. "Transcendental consciousness is said to be a fourth major state of consciousness after waking, dreaming and sleeping states. Its properties are described as empty, devoid of objects, yet wakeful, alert and conscious of self."
For centuries, knights, poets, and mystics have searched for a magical vessel called The Holy Grail, the cup Jesus drank from at the last supper. Is it possible this sacred relic has survived as a hidden treasure or could it be one of the ancient vessels displayed in museums throughout the world?
Some believe that The Grail is a pathway to higher consciousness and unearthly power. Other proponents insist that The Grail is a symbol of a direct line of descent from Jesus... that to this day his descendants walk among us.
Search for the Holy Grail
According to Author Monserrat Rico Gongora Author of The Desecrated Abbey [No English language available] Heinrich Himmler, Hitler's second in charge after Hesse defected, and the head of the SS, went to Monserrat Abbey near Barcelona in Spain in search of the 'Aryan' Holy Grail, which Jesus Christ was said to have used at the Last Supper.
According to Gongora, Himmler as well as Hitler believed that if they could get hold of this 'Aryan' Holy Grail, it would help Germany win the war and bestow supernatural powers upon its possessor.
Himmler as well as Hitler are said to have believed that Jesus Christ was actually descended from Aryan stock.
His reason for selecting this particular Abbey was based on Richard Wagner's opera 'Parsifal', which states that the Holy Grail would be kept in "the marvelous castle of Montsalvat in the Pyrenees". The Nazis thought this castle was in fact Montserrat . As per Gongora in The Desecrated Abbey, Himmler came away from Montserrat empty-handed
The Nazi Occult Bureau under Himmler's command also searched and excavated the Cathar fortress of Montsegur in southern Frances Pyrenees in 1943. The Cathars had been declared heretics in 1208, and went to war with the Vatican and French King. The War lasted nearly 4 decades and the Cathars were beaten back to their last stronghold of Montsegur.
According to the legends, on the night before the final Cathar stronghold fell, four Cathar priests escaped with the treasure. The treasure has never been found, nor does anyone know with any certainty what it was. Perhaps the Holy Grail? Some Legends state that the Cathars were the original guardians of the Holy Grail.
Like Montserrat Abbey in Spain, Montsegur in southern France could also be described by Wagner's "marvelous castle of Montsalvat in the Pyrenees" What if anything the Nazi's found is a mystery.
Other Relics of Nazi Fixation
The Ark of the Covenant, which is famous today as the central object of "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark." which tells of a hero's attempt to prevent the Ark from falling into the hands of the Nazis, who would harness its power to further their evil agenda. In actuality there is no direct evidence of Hitler, or any of the Nazis having had any interest in the Ark. It is believed by some that the Ark of the covenant is actually in Ethiopia. The son of the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon is said to have stolen it. Ethiopian Christians claim that the Ark of the covenant is still in their cathedral in the Church of Saint Mary of Zion in Aksum. See Moses Magic Ark
The Spear of Destiny also known as the Holy Lance. As per legend, he who possessed of the Spear possessed incredible occult power and the spear would bring its owner the power to conquer the world, but losing it would bring immediate death. Occultists subscribe great power to this Spear of Destiny, also referred to as the Holy Lance and the Spear of Longinus. Hitler died shortly after the spear fell into Allied hands.
Vimana aircraft, described in ancient Hindu and Vedic texts are another item the Nazis displayed an interest in. The Nazi's believed India was the ancestral homeland of the Aryan Race, and attributed much credibility to any ancient knowledge or 'magic' coming from there. There is strong evidence that they actually built modern day Vimana - flying saucers. See The Nazi Bell Project.
