Contele de Saint Germain

Deceniul 4 sec XVIII in Franta apare un personaj misterios cunoscut mai tarziu sub
numele de contele de Saint-Germain .Se spune ca era un barbat de talie medie dar voinic
si ii placeau bijuteriile.Purta cu el o caseta plina cu valori inestimabile.
Nu era un tip avar si oIerea celor din jur bijuterii din aur, diamante, perle rare care au
trezit suspiciuni ca nu sunt adevarate.
Specialistii le-au veriIicat si nu erau Ialse.
Nimeni nu stia sursa averii lui si se banuia ca stie secretul Iabricarii aurului.
Compunea si canta cu usurinta la multe instrumente,picta,iar chimia nu avea taine pentru
Vorbea Ioarte bine engleza, germana, Iranceza, spaniola,latina, greaca,rusa,
chineza,sanscrita, japoneza,si araba.Aparent ducea o existenta destul de Irivola.Iii placeau
Iemeile Irumoase, tinere si bogate si spunea mai tot timpul anecdote.
A Iost conIidentul lui LudovicXV care i-a darut un apartament.
In 1746 a Iost arestat in Anglia sub acuzatia de spionaj pentru Franta.
Inepand cu 1749 accepta rolul de agent secret si este trimis peste tot in Europa.
In 1752 poate Ii intalnit la Bruxelles sub numele de Surmont.
In 1762 se numea contele SoltikoI si se aIla in Petersburg unde purta uniIorma de general
rus si tragea sIorile pentru inlaturarea tarului Petru al 3lea.Tarul a Iost inlaturat si sotia lui
Caterina i-a urmat la tron.
In 1771 Saint Germain este semnalat la Nuremberg.
Se mai stie ca a avut un rol important in miscare Irancmasonica si dezvoltarea altor
societati secrete.
Cu putin timp inainte de disparitia sa a spus unor apropiati ca pleaca in Himalaia.
Saint Germain se pare ca avea o varsta compusa din 3 ciIre si inca mai traieste.
Nimeni nu i-a putut preciza originea si a Iost vazut in timp sub diIerite
O ipoteza Iormulata la inceput de secol sugereaza ca Saint Germain ar Ii Iost unul din Iii
lui Francisc II Racokzi, principe al Transilvaniei.
Zarit in Venetia de muzicianul Rameau si de doamna Gergy, din inalta societate
pariziana, acestia spun ca avea inIatisarea unui barbat aIlat intre 40 si 50 de ani. O
inIatisare pe care si-o va pastra toata viata, oIicial decedand in 1784. Cu toate acestea,
multi oameni sunt de parere ca el nu a trecut niciodata in eternitate. Pentru ei, acest
personaj enigmatic a devenit cunoscut drept "Saint-Germain Nemuritorul". Originea lui
Saint-Germain nu a Iost niciodata dezvaluita, nici macar de cei carora le incredintase
secretul sau. Pe tot parcursul vietii, el a aratat ca un om intre doua virste, cu o constitutie
Iizica solida si o inaltime medie. Era un excelent povestitor si avea abilitati
impresionante. AstIel, putea sa creeze bijuterii superbe, avea cunostinte temeinice in
domeniul muzicii si artei si prepara potiuni despre care sustinea ca erau elixirul tineretii.
Nu a Iost nicicand vazut mancand sau band, insa se bucura de compania Iemeilor si se
invartea in cercurile aristocratiei. Parea sa nu imbatraneasca niciodata. Perioada sa de
celebritate este cuprinsa intre anii 1750 si 1760, pe care i-a petrecut la Paris.
Se crede ca este posibil ca el sa mai hoinareasca pe pamant, asteptand momentul potrivit
pentru a reaparea si a sIatui omenirea aIlata la ananghie. Totusi, pana atunci, personajul
enigmatic cunoscut drept contele de Saint-Germain va ramne un mister.

Count of St. Germain

Count oI St Germain by unknown artist
The Count of St. Germain (Il. 17101784) has been variously described as a courtier,
adventurer, charlatan, inventor, alchemist, pianist, violinist and amateur composer, but is
best known as a recurring Iigure in the stories oI several strands oI occultism
particularly those connected to Theosophy, where he is also reIerred to as the Master
Rakoc:i or the Master R and credited with near god-like powers and longevity. Some
sources write that his name is not Iamilial, but was invented by him as a French version
oI the Latin Sanctus Germanus, meaning "Holy Brother."

edit] Life
The scarcity oI contemporary biographical detail about St. Germain (alongside his own
apparent selI-mythologising) has supported the construction oI many versions oI his
origins and ancestry, including that he was:
O Francis Bacon, true heir to the Throne oI England, born to Queen Elizabeth I and
Robert Dudley. He was given to the Bacon Iamily who raised him and this secret
was kept (Dr. Raymond Bernard, %e Great Secret St. Germain)
O The son oI Francis II Rakoczi, the Prince oI Transylvania, by Rakoczi's Iirst

O The illegitimate son oI Maria Anna oI PIalz-Neuburg, the widow oI Charles II oI
O The son oI the king oI Portugal (presumably John V)
In a letter oI 1745 Horace Walpole mentions a Count St. Germain as being arrested in
London on suspicion oI espionage (this was during the Jacobite rebellion) but released
without charge:
The other day they seized an odd man, who goes by the name oI Count St. Germain. He
has been here these two years, and will not tell who he is, or whence, but proIesses |two
wonderIul things, the Iirst| that he does not go by his right name; |and the second that he
never had any dealings with any woman - nay, nor with any succedaneum (tis was
censored by Walpoles editors until 1954)| He sings, plays on the violin wonderIully,
composes, is mad, and not very sensible. He is called an Italian, a Spaniard, a Pole; a
somebody that married a great Iortune in Mexico, and ran away with her jewels to
Constantinople; a priest, a Iiddler, a vast nobleman. The Prince oI Wales has had
unsatiated curiosity about him, but in vain. However, nothing has been made out against
him; he is released; and, what convinces me that he is not a gentleman, stays here, and
talks oI his being taken up Ior a spy.

One Pierre-Renault de Saint-Germain was Governor oI Chengalaput, in India, in 1752,

and a Robert-Franois Quesnay de St-Germain was active in several secret societies.
Stories oI the Count in India and at Masonic meetings can be traced to them. A mime and
English comedian known as Milord Gower also impersonated St-Germain in Paris salons.
His stories were wilder than the real Count's - he had advised Jesus, Ior example.
Inevitably, hearsay oI his routine got conIused with the original.
Giacomo Casanova describes in his memoirs several meetings with the "celebrated and
learned impostor". OI his Iirst meeting, in Paris in 1757, he writes:
The most enjoyable dinner I had was with Madame de Gergi, who came with the Iamous
adventurer, known by the name oI the Count de St. Germain. This individual, instead oI
eating, talked Irom the beginning oI the meal to the end, and I Iollowed his example in
one respect as I did not eat, but listened to him with the greatest attention. It may saIely
be said that as a conversationalist he was unequalled.
St. Germain gave himselI out Ior a marvel and always aimed at exciting amazement,
which he oIten succeeded in doing. He was scholar, linguist, musician, and chemist,
good-looking, and a perIect ladies' man. For awhile he gave them paints and cosmetics;
he Ilattered them, not that he would make them young again (which he modestly
conIessed was beyond him) but that their beauty would be preserved by means oI a wash
which, he said, cost him a lot oI money, but which he gave away Ireely.
He had contrived to gain the Iavour oI Madame de Pompadour, who had spoken about
him to the king, Ior whom he had made a laboratory, in which the monarch - a martyr to
boredom - tried to Iind a little pleasure or distraction, at all events, by making dyes. The
king had given him a suite oI rooms at Chambord, and a hundred thousand Irancs Ior the
construction oI a laboratory, and according to St. Germain the dyes discovered by the
king would have a materially beneIicial inIluence on the quality oI French Iabrics.
This extraordinary man, intended by nature to be the king oI impostors and quacks,
would say in an easy, assured manner that he was three hundred years old, that he knew
the secret oI the Universal Medicine, that he possessed a mastery over nature, that he
could melt diamonds, proIessing himselI capable oI Iorming, out oI ten or twelve small
diamonds, one large one oI the Iinest water without any loss oI weight. All this, he said,
was a mere triIle to him. Notwithstanding his boastings, his bare-Iaced lies, and his
maniIold eccentricities, I cannot say I thought him oIIensive. In spite oI my knowledge oI
what he was and in spite oI my own Ieelings, I thought him an astonishing man as he was
always astonishing me.

Myths, legends and speculations about St. Germain began to be widespread in the late
19th and early 20th centuries, and continue today. They include belieIs that he is
immortal, the Wandering Jew, an alchemist with the "Elixir oI LiIe", a Rosicrucian, and
that he prophesied the French Revolution. He is said to have met the Iorger Giuseppe
Balsamo (alias Cagliostro) in London.
Many details reveal themselves as improbable on deeper inspection. One story has the
composer Rameau meeting the Count in Venice in 1710|1|, which proves Ialse on
learning that Rameau had been living in Paris Ior at least 5 years|2|.
edit] Literature about St. Germain
edit] Biographies
There are several "authoritative" biographers who usually do not agree with one another.
Probably the two best-known biographies are Isabel Cooper-Oakley's %e Count of St.
Germain (1912) and Jean Overton-Fuller's %e Comte de Saint-Germain. Last Scion of
te House of Rakoc:y (1988). The Iormer is a compilation oI letters, diaries and private
records written about the Count by members oI the French aristocracy who knew him in
the 18th century. Dr. Raymond Bernard's book %e Great Secret St. Germain is
biographical and covers many aspects oI the Counts' liIe including his conIlation with Sir
Francis Bacon and the author oI the Shakespearean opus. Manly Palmer Hall in his %e
Secret %eacings of All Ages, describes some oI the same attributes as Dr. Bernard,
including the attribution oI the writings oI Shakespeare to a great adept like Francis
Bacon, who could be amalgamated with the Count oI St. Germain.

There have also been numerous French and German biographies, among them Der
Wiedergnger. Das :eitlose Leben des Grafen von Saint-Germain by Peter Krassa, Le
Comte de Saint-Germain by Marie-Raymonde Delorme and Lenigmatique Comte De
Saint-Germain by Pierre Ceria and Franois Ethuin.
edit] Occult biography
A book titled %e Great Secret, Count St. Germain, by Dr. Raymond Bernard purports
that St. Germain was actually Francis Bacon by birth, and later authored the complete
Plays attributed to Shakespeare. He also contends, as does the Saint Germain Foundation
in Chicago, IL., that Francis Bacon was the child oI Queen Elizabeth and Lord Dudley
but that it was kept quiet. According to the theory, Francis was raised by the Bacon
Iamily. Yet, throughout the Shakespearean canon, there are numerous hints that the
author knows oI his true birth, as revealed in the explicit clues in the text oI the plays
themselves, in pictures, as well as the cipher code that he employed.
edit] Book attributed to St. Germain
One book attributed to Saint Germain himselI is "The Most Holy Trinosophia oI the
Comte de St. Germain." There are also two triangular books in the Manly Palmer Hall
Collection oI Alchemical Manuscripts at the Getty Research Library which are attributed
to Saint Germain.|3| There is an additional book at the Getty Research Library entitled
"America Hereldica" attributed to the author "Saint-Germain, C. de.", although it was
published in New York in 1886. |4|
edit] Books dictated by Saint Germain to Guy Ballard
Saint Germain is the central Iigure in the Saint Germain Series oI Books published by the
Saint Germain Press. The Iirst two volumes, &nveiled Mysteries and %e Magic
Presence, written by GodIre Ray King, describe Saint Germain as an Ascended Master,
like Jesus, who is assisting humanity. GodIre Ray King is the pen-name Ior Guy Warren
Ballard. In these Iirst two books, he discusses his personal experiences with Saint
Germain and reveals many teachings that are in harmony with Theosophy and some other
works reIerenced above. The third volume, %e I AM Discourses, contains material that
is Ioundational to the sacred scriptures oI the I AM Activity.
There are 20 Volumes in the Saint Germain Series oI Books, which are also reIerred to as
the "Green Books." Another work oI great importance, the Comte de Gabalis, is said to
be Irom the hand oI Sir Francis Bacon beIore he Ascended and returned as Sanctus
Germanus, the "Holy Brother Herman," or Saint Germain. First printed in 1670, the book
includes a picture oI the Polish Rider, a Iamous painting at the Frick Collection in New
York City, which is said to be oI Sir Francis Bacon, a.k.a the Comte de Gabalis, or the
Count oI the Cabala. Lotus Ray King (Edna Ballard's pen name), wiIe oI Guy Ballard,
talked about this book having been authored by the Ascended Master Saint Germain in
the Round Table Talks oI the I AM Activity.
edit] Claimed encounters with Saint Germain
Several Theosophists and practitioners oI alternate esoteric traditions have claimed to
have met Saint Germain in the late 19th or early 20th centuries:
O Annie Besant said that she met the Count in 1896.
O C. W. Leadbeater claimed to have met him in Rome in 1926 and gave a physical
description oI him as having brown eyes, olive colored skin, and a pointed beard;
according to Leadbeater, "the splendour oI his Presence impels men to make
Leadbeater said that Saint Germain showed him a robe that had
been previously owned by a Roman Emperor and that Saint Germain told him that
one oI his residences was a castle in Transylvania. According to Leadbeater, when
perIorming magical rituals in his castle in Transylvania, Saint Germain wears "a
suit oI golden chain-mail which once belonged to a Roman Emperor; over it is
thrown a magniIicent cloak oI Tyrian purple, with on its clasp a seven-pointed
star in diamond and amethyst, and sometimes he wears a glorious robe oI

O Guy Ballard, Iounder oI the "I AM" Activity, claimed that he met Saint Germain
on Mount Shasta in CaliIornia in August 1930, and that this initiated his
"training" and experiences with other Ascended Masters in various parts oI the

O Edgar Cayce, the "Sleeping Prophet", was asked while in trance iI Saint Germain
was present. Cayce's reply was: "When needed." (From reading # 254-83 on
O Dorothy Leon, living author, has claimed to have had several encounters with
Saint Germain and is an avowed disciple oI his.
Paul Foster Case, Iounder oI Builders oI the Adytum also claims to have met Saint
Germain, who was known as "Master R", at a hotel in New York in 1921.
edit] Esoteric activities
Many groups honor Saint Germain as an Ascended Master. He is reIerred to in
Theosophy as the Master Rakoc:y or the Master R.. In the Ascended Master Teachings he
is reIerred to simply as Saint Germain, or as the Ascended Master Saint Germain. |5|

As an Ascended Master, Saint Germain is believed to have many magical powers such as
the ability to teleport, levitate, walk through walls, and to inspire people telepathically,
among others.
Theosophists consider him to be a Mahatma, Master or Adept. Helena Blavatsky said that
he was one oI her Masters oI Wisdom and hinted that he had given her secret documents.
Some esoteric groups credit him with inspiring the Founding Fathers to draIt the United
States Declaration oI Independence and the Constitution, as well as providing the design
oI the Great Seal oI the United States. (See Manly Palmer Hall's Secret %eacings of All
In New Age belieIs, Saint Germain is always associated with the color violet,
the jewel amethyst, and the Maltese cross rendered in violet (usually the iron cross style
cross patee version). He is also regarded as the "Chohan oI the Seventh Ray"

According to Theosophy, the Seven Rays are seven metaphysical principles that govern
both individual souls and the unIolding oI each 2,158 year long Astrological Age. Since
according to Theosophy the next Astrological Age, the Age oI Aquarius, will be
governed by the Seventh (Violet) Ray (the Ray oI Ceremonial Order), Saint Germain is
sometimes called "The Hierarch oI the Age oI Aquarius." According to the Ascended
Master Teachings, Saint Germain is "The God oI Freedom Ior the Earth."
In Theosophist Alice A. Bailey's books, Saint Germain is reIerred to as the Master
Rakoc:i or the Master R.
Alice A. Bailey's book %e Externalisation of te Hierarcy
(a compilation oI earlier revelations published posthumously in 1957) gives the most
inIormation about his reputed role as a spiritual Master. His title is said to be the Lord of
Civili:ation and his task is the establishment oI the new civilization oI the Age oI
He is said to telepathically inIluence people who are seen by him as being
instrumental in bringing about the new civilization oI the Age oI Aquarius. Alice A.
Bailey stated that "sometime aIter AD 2025," the Master Jesus, the Master Rakoczi (Saint
Germain), Kuthumi, and others in the Spiritual Hierarchy would "externalise", i.e.,
descend Irom the spiritual worlds, and interact in visible tangible bodies on the Earth in
ashrams, surrounded by their disciples.
