The Operative Illuminated Rite of Bavaria thirteen degrees of initiation our
Illuminati Order has a Masonic base, but it incorporates fundamental bases (will,
order, coherence, etc.) And traditional ways of initiation: yoga, tantra, cabala,
At first, yoga permits to initiate discovers his interior god and
unites to One and it gives a very solid structure of work that serves him to evolve to
other initiation ways like tantrism or cabala, which complete initiation. In this degree

HISTORY OF YOGA
The beginning of different yoga is unknowing, although this start could find in III
millennium before our era. There are numerous types of yoga, which are structured throughout last
centuries and millenniums. There is Karma-Yoga, which is disinterested action yoga.
Action is the way to interior god, the evolution and development of Knowledge.
Another historic yoga is Bhakti-Yoga, which is devotional yoga, yoga based in intense
sense to divinity. Other yoga with a lot of history centuries are Gnama-Yoga (gnama
means knowledge, discernment...): Radja-Yoga, yoga of mind: Mantra-Yoga, this yoga
consists in recite words or phonemes which quiet mind, leads to interior god and serves
for evoke-invoke-convoke; Tantra-Yoga or sexual yoga; Kundalini-Yoga, which alludes
to Kundalini, and we will comment deeper when we work with Tantra-Yoga or
Since XIX century, yoga has been divulged on accident like a gym method for being
better, when its function is transmit an initiation really. It’s interesting to add that word
yoga derives of Sanskrit stem ‘yui’ that means ‘to hook with a yoke’, to connect, to
unite... In Latin is ‘jungere’, in French ‘jong’ (yoke), ‘joindre’ (unite)...
Although Patanjali was who exposed a system of yoga steps and these steps are part of
Radja-Yoga or mind yoga, these yoga steps are considered valid by total ways of yoga.
Eight steps of Patanjali yoga are yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana,
dyana y samadhi. These are steps that Illuminati Order works, with the step of
mantrayoga after pranayama and before of pratyahara, because capacity of mantra to
quiets the mind and leads to interior god and evoke-invoke-convoke.
Another question is Illuminati Order doesn’t assume value of yama and niyama,
‘morals qualities’ and ‘good works’, so these steps aren’t in its yoga. Likewise the I.O. does not subscribe to objective morality an meaning along the lines of Power Nihilism an Nietzche's Overman when you create your own values.The Liber Ozand
Book of The Law accomplish the section of yama and niyama perfectly. So we have yoga
of seven steps in Illuminati Order, almost identical to Patanjali.
Before beginning, it’s interesting to meditate about a couple of ideas. In spite of
religions impairing denominated slave cults (Christianity, Islam, Judaism…), on XXI
century Humanity not being liberated from the chains of slavery cults and creeds. These
cults maintain their eternal dynamic, their dogmatic laws, influencing negative form in
millions of people.
The new generations don’t find their place in slave cults with dogmas and
limitations, and they doubt of other slavery: capitalism, oppressor States, pop culture,
consumerism and fashions… Consequently they go to esoteric teachings and initiation, a
way that must be free, and interior divinities discover and progress. ‘All man and all
women are stars and Gods’, says one of the Liber Oz.
Last objective of initiatory work is initiate transformation, and he will be able to project
his evolution for a world more just and free. Light is the symbol of this evolution. Light,
in fact, is identified with spirit, because it lights darkness and matter. Light is
complementary of Dark. The symbolism of exit of Darkness to the Light is present in all
of rituals of initiation. Light and Darkness are reality which alternate in evolution. This
is symbolized in checkered floor of the lodge of in Masonic emblem ‘Post Tenebras
Lux’, that it means ‘farther darkness, Light’.
The Illuminati always have talked of importance of Light. In fact, The Illuminated, The
Illuminati, are thosewho render cult and love to Light. We cannot forget that Baphomet
Lucifer, Prometheus, Iblis…), God of Light. The Light is the symbol
of the awakening of the conscience, the transformation of the initiated, the Primordial
Initiation re-established by Illuminati Order.
This idea has a nexus with Superior Paleolithic 40.000 B.O.E. – 12.000 B.O.E.), when
men were in caverns in long winters and they needed light, not only for subsist, but
express their art on rupestrian pictures. In the Trois Fraires cavern in Arige (France),
dated on Superior Paleolithic, there is one of most ancient representation of Primordial
Initiation developed in Primordial Era or Gold Age (man origin-2.000 B.O.E.). The
figure represents a man covered with deer leather and with its horns on his head.
Evidently, this representation shows an ancient initiated one transformed in the god of
It’s interesting to add that Light proceeds of flame, of fire, that god of Light (Baphomet,
Lucifer, Prometheus, Iblis…) takes; that name Lucifer proceeds of classic world and of
words ‘Eosphorus’ or ‘Phosphurus’, that mean ‘Bearer of Light’; and that Light
illuminates darkness, awakes conscience and interior god and helps to complete
initiation in our Rite of The Illuminated of Bavaria of 13 degrees of initiation.
Once we have clarified symbolism of Light, we go to know yoga of degree Novice Iº
in three first steps: asana, pranayama and mantrayoga/galdor.
