Stupa Image from the Doog Diaries
The Black Ngagspa lost all evil intent after witnessing Schäfer’s Vajrasattvic Empowerment—indeed, it was as if the Sacred Action had suctioned-off any and all residuals of malice—and his role in the scheme of the evil Lord of Agarthi was apparently over, but for one thing…in a twisted maneuver his former Dark Lord had been witnessing these events unfold nearby—such was his astral prowess. He may have lost his novice to the Buddhaic-Light, but he found the prize! At first he was astonished how the long lost substance of the Vril had metastasized into the form of a meteorite statue—but there it was! Lying there in its aquiline prison at the apex of the Iron Stupa was the figure of a hooded monk grasping a strange weapon at his side…
The Lord of Agarthi also intuitively knew that the shape of a sauvastika, embedded in the statue’s chest, was placed there by some ancient Bonpos in order to assimilate its powers for their own benefit—also as a protective measure of sealing it away from prying evil eyes. Taking advantage of the moment, he seized the statue as his astral form spiraled-away, leaving both Schäfer and the now “White” Ngagspa in a hypnotic-stupor, powerless to prevent his escape…
The manomakaya bodies of both Schäfer and his new-found ally, the White Ngagspa, resumed their regular form and size and eventually were reunited with the other members of the expedition.
Long after leaving Tibet Schäfer’s transformed-spirit was now “embedded” in Nazi Germany, his actions invisible to the Nazi hierarchy as he plotted Hitler’s demise along with other anti-Nazi cells and was instrumental in the failed assassination plot in July of 1944. He wasn’t privy to the Occult Powers that continually protected Adolf Hitler, powers that safeguarded his person even during the failed plot against his life. The nefarious Lord of Agarthi, along with a few of his disciples, were also secretly embedded in Nazi Germany, fully utilizing the powers of the Iron Man Statue that assured Nazi success during the early years of the war. The statues’ strange weapon was in actuality a Vajra-Dhunga— a prehistoric weapon that, in thunder-bolt like fashion, harbored the energies of a million phurpas. Unlike the Bonpo and Tibetan monks who employed their own phurpas in its original purpose of deactivating the evil powers of demons, the dark Agarthians inverted its power for pure evil…that is until late November 1941, when the statue was stolen—the precise moment in which the Nazi armies stalled in front of the gates at Moscow. It was the White Ngagspa who had covertly infiltrated the ranks of the Agarthians and stole the statue right under their very noses as they helplessly watched the decline and fall of Nazi Germany—right up till that moment in late April of 1945 when the advancing Russians found their bodies in an abandoned cellar of a war-torn building. They had committed suicide in a ritual circle as each one reached over and touched the lethal Green Gloves of their Master, who sat motionless like a spider in the center of its web. In like fashion, the Lord of Agarthi—having failed in his unholy mission—touched his face with those self-same gloves thus sealing his ignominious fate.
What was the eventual fate of the Iron-Man Statue? The White Ngagspa had it safely hidden-away in the home of an anonymous collector of strange artifacts, until 2007 when its new present owner, a grandchild of the collector, offered to have a team of scientists investigate its value and intrinsic nature. The following is an official report:
After Schäfer’s team returned to Munich, the iron statue dropped out of sight. It wasn’t until 2007 that its anonymous new owner reached out to a team of scientists led by Dr. Elmar Buchner from the Institute of Planetology at the University of Stuttgart to see if they could find out more about it. He only let them test the figure in a very limited way, however. They weren’t allowed to take any significant samples; they could only literally scrape the surface in an attempt to determine what the statue was made of. In 2009, the Iron Man, as he became known, was sold at auction. Since then, it has been in the hands of one of Buchner’s team and they have had full access to do whatever tests they wish on it.
The statue weighs about 23 pounds and is about 10 inches tall and 5 inches wide. It’s hard to determine exactly who it depicts, but Buchner thinks it’s a Bön culture artifact from the 11th century portraying a version of the Buddhist deity Vaisravana, known in Tibet as Jambhala. He is the god of fortune and wealth (which would be in keeping with the swastika), or sometimes a god of war (which would be in keeping with the armor he’s wearing). There are things missing, though; iconography and attributes you see in later depictions of Vaisravana are not present here. Some, like a flaming trident he holds in the crook of his left arm, could have been lost over the centuries. Buchner’s working theory is that the statue is a transitional figure that incorporates both pre-Buddhist and Buddhist elements, which is why it’s non-standard in some ways.
The most unusual part of it is not the iconography, but rather its composition. Buchner knew from the moment their eyes met across a crowded lab that Iron Man’s iron came from a meteorite. He could tell from thumb-like impressions left on the surface when the meteorite melted during its crash landing. Geochemical analyses confirmed that the Iron Man’s iron wasn’t just from a meteorite, but from the rarest of them all: an ataxite. The high levels of nickel and cobalt in the iron marked it as an ataxite class meteorite. Less than 1% of iron meteorites and less than .1% of all meteorites are ataxites.
Even more exceptionally, the researchers were able to pin down exactly which meteorite it had been carved out of. The geochemical data match those of the Chinga meteorite which fell to earth between Mongolia and Siberia about 15,000 years ago. The first reports of its discovery were made in 1913, but someone found a piece a lot earlier than that, almost a thousand years earlier than that, in fact.
The carver had to have known it was special because chiseling this kind of iron is a tough, tough job. Perhaps he had an inkling it came from the sky — there’s a long history of meteorites being treated with religious reverence in many cultures — or perhaps he just thought it was so unique it was perfect for depicting a god. After the carving, the figure was forged around the edges and base, and then gilded. Only traces of the gilding remain today.
Other meteorites that have been held to be holy were worshipped in rock form. Objects like knives and jewelry have been found carved from meteorites, as have animal figures like eagles. There are references in the historical record to the Tibetan craft of carving “sky iron,” but that craft has long since died out and none of the references mention the carving of humans or anthropomorphic deities. As far as we know, this statue is the only depiction of a human figure carved into a meteorite that’s ever been found. (http://www.thehistoryblog.com/archives/20067)
The decision to write this series in storyboard-format was arrived at during the summer months. The protagonist represents the three receptacles of Body, Speech, and Mind that together with the various Buddha-Deity-Goddesses relays the exercises in Anuyoga fashion—i.e., the Mind adept becoming as One with the Deity and thus experiencing firsthand the Tathatic Empowerments and Initiations. The Iron Stupa was the vehicle in which the protagonist became linked with the Five Dhyani Buddha energies—all leading to the climatic ACTION of the Stupa itself representing fully the Dharmakaya as the ultimate nature of the enlightened Mind and Spirit. Throughout the ascent the Mind-adept/Yogin experiences each of the five agencies, thus becoming more attuned with all of their particular energy-signatures. The end result being a Total and Unequivocal Transformation in consciousness: breaking free from the skandhic-cocoon and flying freely in the Mystical Heights of the Unborn, sans the body-consciousness. One now breathes with the Essential breath of the Amala Consciousness itself.
One could say that this concludes a Tantric-Trilogy of sorts, beginning with the Lankavatarian Book of the Dead, a work in Atiyoga with its path of physical-mental, and spiritual disciplines incorporating the Ten Advanced Stages of Mind Development; the Tathagatagarbhatara Tantra, a work in Mahayoga with its classic-tantric scripture rounded out with Skillful Liturgical Actions; and this present Anuyogic work, Notes from the Iron Stupa, highlighting techniques in esoteric physiology—all of these pointing in one direction and that is the development and attunement with the Diamond-Mind Body—the path of the Vajrasattva. This present series also added another salient dimension, shamanistic-magic, whose principles state that if one follows a certain course of ACTION with dedication and persistence, one will be led back to one’s True Buddhaic Nature in the Unborn; in such fashion one has a “hands on approach” to fulfilling their spiritual destiny. Of course, there are certain dangers in this, highlighted by the actions of the antagonists in the narrative. One needs to always be attuned with the Tathatic Mind and Spirit—when one does so, these spiritual techniques will enhance one’s quest for the Unborn.
As an added footnote, I also find it fascinating in a way that certain world events—like the evil rise of ISIS—parallels (to a certain extent ) the Nazi references throughout the allegory. It just may take some extra form of “Mystical-Magic” to effectively counteract the lethal affairs of this malignant organization.
