have said that these beings of the vital world are attracted
by the spiritual life. Why?
are attracted, but this does not mean that they have decided
sincerely to follow the spiritual life. The chief characteristic
of these beings is falsehood: their nature is made of deceit.
They have a power for illusion; they can take the appearance
of divine beings or higher beings, they can appear in a dazzling
light, but truly sincere people are not deceived, they immediately
feel something that warns them. But if one likes the marvellous,
the unexpected, if one loves fantastic things, if one likes
to live a romance, one is likely to be easily deceived.
long ago there was a historical instance, that of Hitler,
who was in contact with a being whom he considered to be the
Supreme: this being came and gave him advice, told him all
that he had to do. Hitler used to retire into solitude and
remain there as long as it was necessary to come into contact
with his "guide" and receive from him inspirations
which he carried out later very faithfully. This being which
Hitler took for the Supreme was quite plainly as Asura, one
who is called the "Lord of Falsehood" in occultism,
but who proclaimed himself the "Lord of the Nations".
He had a shining appearance, he could mislead anybody except
one who really had occult knowledge and could see what was
there behind the appearance. He would have deceived anybody,
he was truly splendid. Generally he used to appear to Hitler
wearing a silver cuirass and helmet; a kind of flame came
out of his head and there was an atmosphere of dazzling light
around him, so dazzling that Hitler could hardly look at him.
He used to tell Hitler everything that had to be donehe
played with him as with a monkey or a mouse. He had decided
clearly to make Hitler commit all possible extravagance till
the day he would break his neck, which did happen. But cases
like this are frequent, though on a smaller scale, of course.
was a very good medium, he had great mediumistic capacities,
but he lacked intelligence and discrimination. This being
could tell him anything whatever and he swallowed it all.
It was he who pushed Hitler little by little. And he was doing
this as a distraction, he did not take life seriously. For
these being men are very tiny things with whom they play,
as a cat plays with a mouse, till finally they eat them up.
Hitler died, did the Lord of Falsehood pass into Stalin?
is not altogether like that that things happen, but it is
something similar. This being did not wait for Hitler's death,
it is there you make a mistake. These beings are not at all
tied to a single physical presence. The being in question
could very well possess Hitler and at the same time influence
many others. Hitler was got rid of because he had behind him
a whole nation and a physical power, and if he had succeeded
it would have been a disaster for humanity, but there was
no deluding oneself about it; it was not sufficient to get
rid of him in order to get rid of the force that was behind
himthat is not so easy. I must tell you that the origin
of these beings is prior to that of gods; they are the first
emanations, the first individual beings of the universe; so
they cannot be got rid of so easily, by winning one war.
long as they are necessary for the universal evolution they
will exist. The day they lose their utility, they will be
converted or will disappear.
they know that they are nearing their last hour and that is
why they are doing so much damage as they can.
were four of them. The first one has been converted, another
is dissolved into its origin. Two are still living and these
two are more ferocious than the others. One is known in occultism
as the "Lord of Falsehood", I have told you this,
the other is the "Lord of Death". And as long as
these two beings exist, there will be difficulties.

knew that being very well ..., and once, I knew he was going
to visit HitlerI went before he did: I took his appearance,
it was very easy. Then I said to Hitler, "Go and attack Russia."
I don't exactly remember the words or the details, but the
fact was that I told him, "Go ... In order to have the supreme
victory, go and attack Russia." That was the end of Hitler.
He believed it and did ittwo days later, we got the
news of the attack. And then, the next day, that is, when
I came back from Hitler, I met that being and told him, "I've
done your job!" Naturally enough, he was furious!
all the same, in that consciousness, there is with that being
(the Lord of Falsehood, one of the first four Emanations),
there is despite everything a very deep relationship, of course.
He said to me, "I know, I know I will be defeated eventually,
but before my end comes I will wreak as much destruction on
earth as I can."
as I told you, the next day, the news of the attack came,
and that was really the end of Hitler.
for Sri Aurobindo ... (you know that there is a place in Russia
where they were defeated), Sri Aurobindo had foreseen the
defeat and had worked the night before, and that's how it
happenedwe knew ALL THE DETAILS.
never told this, of course, but it was perfectly precise.
I knew that being, I had already seen him in Japanhe
called himself "the Lord of Nations." And he really was a
form of the Asura of Falsehood, that is, of Truth which became
Falsehood: the first Emanation of Truth, who became Falsehood.
he hasn't been destroyed yet.
