Alexandre Moryason's comments on

"Initiation into Hermetics"


Alexandre Moryason is the French occultist who translated Bardon's
three main works into the French language. He added a lot of
footnotes/explanations to his translation which are very interesting
for every student of magic working with Bardon's system.
Alexandre Moryason authoried me to translate his comments
contained in his French translation of Bardon's ! "ooks into #nglish.
Actually the entire work has "een done "y Mr. $rion %schudi& who
organied the translation. ' would like to thank Mr. %schudi here in
the name of all
#nglish speaking Friends of Fran Bardon for this extensive and
excellent work.
My special thanks to the professional translator Jocelyne Demers
(contact) (*+,- ./0 01++ 2 %oronto& 3anada4 email

Translators preface:
"T.N." stands for "Translator's Note", which is inscribed in the French
edition's footnotes as "Ndt". The Translator thus referred to is that
who translated the text into French, providing me with my original,
French language material.
n this document, the footnotes, translated into !nglish from the
actual of the French language edition, are preceded by the "ord
"#age" followed by the number of the page on which they do appear
in the French language, that followed by words or phrases as relevant
for clarity's sa$e, immediately preceding the call for a given footnote,
thusly: the French word or phrase, then its !nglish rendition, then the
call for the footnote, all in %old type but the body of the footnotes
themselves& the latter are in 'oman but for their call number, as in
the French language edition. For example, in the French edition's
main text on page (), the word "*me" is followed by a call for
footnote and further down page (), there appears the phrase
"matrice astrale", followed by the call for footnote +& so, write then
"#age (), "*me", ",oul"'& "matrice astrale","astral matrix"+".
Following such a statement comes, in a distinct paragraph and the
order called, any footnote for that page.
'eminder: There are references to a specific other page of the boo$.
That specific other page is stated as to the pagination of the French
edition used. #lease do effect the ade-uate transposition in the page
numbers. Thus, in Note of page ./, there is a reference to Note of
page (., both those pages ./ and (. being of the same French
edition. 0i$ewise, a footnote on page 121 refers to another on page
13/.
There is another such reference on page +(. of the French edition
used, to a note allegedly on page +41 where there is actually no
note: n fact, the note referred to on page +(. as being on page +41
appears on page +4(. t is about 5idams, as is the page +(. note&
therefore wrote "page +4(" instead of "+41" in the page +(. note of
my !nglish footnote text.
6n page 174, the footnote refers to pages +(2 and +.1 of an earlier
French edition.

)8 TN.: "estern hermetic texts, following the 9ree$ texts, called for a
long time "!ther" :*ither8 what the 6rient calls "*$asha". ;owever,
for more than a century by now, it has been the usage to attribute to
the word "*$asha" the meaning of "<ivine #rimordial ,ubstance",
",ole ,pirit, ,ource of the whole =reation", while the word "!ther"
currently designates subtle and invisible indeed but very dense a
plane in comparison with the other, higher planes& what is involved is
a plane of -uasi>physical a nature, the closest plane to physical
nature. The etheric plane is born, it is true, as all other planes, from
the *$asha :<ivine ,ource8. Nevertheless, aiming at the practice and
therefore the readers'real development, Fran? %ardon did not linger
ma$ing explicit all the subtle planes :with their respective hues, the
sub>planes, etc8 in order not to encase ;ermetic ,cience into
essentially intellectual an understanding. That is why he uses the
word *$asha or !ther while giving it several meanings, according to
the context: "#re>material etheric plane" or "!ntirety of all the subtle
planes" or yet "nfinite <ivine ,ource" :an *spect that is, from the
vibratory standpoint, infinitely, inconceivably higher than the -uasi>
physical etheric plane8.

"North" and ",outh" according to their orientation within the

wor$, we shall stic$ to that phrase in order to remain faithful to the
concept developed by the *uthor.

apprehension of the Cniversal 0aws and of the realities which the
latter entail is totally absent. That blood and sperm had been and be
unfortunately still used to inDurious ends :sorcery8, that is the sad
truth. t is fitting however to wonder "why" blac$ wi?ards or
magicians utili?e those substances... #recisely because they contain,

"=ausal %ody", !goic %ody" , "nner @aster" or ",olar *ngel" and to
which the =hristian religion refers under the phrase "9uardian *ngel"
and which is also called ",oul", in the veritable sense and with the
latter's attributes: #rotection, teaching, immortality, etc. The word
"astral" was designating what we now call etheric and the psychical
plane :immediately superior to the etheric, in the current sense8 was
the #lane of <esire, expressing itself in particular in the human being
by the body of desire. The latter is now called "astral or psychical
body". n conse-uence, must be understood here by astral body:
#sychical body or body of desire, seat of the passions, of the
emotions, etc... and therefore vibratorily superior to the etheric.

)8 TN.: The word "astral" was appearing alone in the first translation.
;owever, on account of the complexity of the subtle planes, it is
fitting to be more precise, given the descriptions, themselves very
precise, which the author ma$es for us of those planes. That is why
the word "etheric" was added, for it is both those planes, astral and
etheric, that are involved here. Therefore, over these pages, we too$
the liberty to put the exact term attributed to each of those planes
today for a better understanding by the reader. @oreover, the phrase
"Fourth <imension" currently designates all the subtle planes
:immaterial and invisible for the human being, *$asha included8, that
are also called in an imprecise manner, "%eyond". The prevailing
hierarchy must therefore be restituted there as to the different planes
from the densest to the highest: /8 The physical body :which is not a
#rincipleE8 )8 The etheric body +8 The astral or psychical body 18 The
mental body :divided into lower or concrete mental and higher mental

the mental body well.
There, it is the -ualities of the mental that are involved, reflecting
those inherent to the ,pirit. That is why, by simplification, the same
term, "mental", has been and is employed throughout this wor$. 6f
all the bodies constituting the human being, the sole "*di" ,par$ is
immortal and imperishable, but man has no awareness of it during
long millennia. The average man has awareness, after un certain
cycle of evolution, of his mental to which he assimilates his !ssence,
his =onsciousness.

designate the durable and luminous :therefore faultless8 aspect of the

)8 T.N.: The difference between the communication recommended by
;ermeticism and the usual spiritualistic practice resides in the fact
that in the course of the latter, the medium yields his etheric hand
:indeed his whole bod ...8 and in that case, it is the spirits living on
that relatively dense although invisible plane that use that hand& the
nature and the degree of evolution of those spirits, account ta$en of
the plane to which they belong, therefore leave to be desired and
contact is in general very harmful. The @agus or student in @agic
yields his mental hand& that means that from that high plane, a spirit
residing there will act or manifest himself "&y t!ning into" the
etheric hand :which stayed in the physical hand8 that then will cause
the physical hand to move according to the instructions come from
that high plane& in conse-uence, under that method, the spirit does
not enter into the hand of the @agus. ;e guides it "by tuning"
according to the 0aw of *nalogy ruling all the planes. The mental
plane being what is involved, those are beings living on that high
sphere that the @agus contacts.

himself, but very high, it is the
"nner @aster" or "<eep ,elf". %esides, deceased relatives, whose
evolution is certain, or other
persons to whom the Farma binds us and whom we do not
remember, may protect us along an
indeterminate duration& in fact, until age seven, or fourteen or even
twenty>one, indeed the whole

)8 TN.: 0et us specify that that mode of communication, even if, a
priori, it ma$es possible to contact living beings on the mental plane,
does not avoid "static" by beings residing on the psychical or etheric
plane. n fact, when a mental organ :here, the hand8 leaves its astral
and physical envelope, the void thus created is immediately
compensated for by a vibratory extension of the concerned organ's
psychical and etheric aura& in conse-uence, that extension
necessarily attracts beings residing on those planes, inferior to the
mentdl sphere, that shall attempt to manifest themselves too and
may perturb the reception of the message receivedfrom the mental
plane. %ecause the @agus is aware of that phenomenon, he does not
let himself be drawn into that noxious current. ;e exercises his
vigilance and does not have an attitude of total submission and
credulity towards what he pic$s up. "at is therefore involved there is
a simple exercise ma$ing it possible to experiment and to convince
oneset:of the existence of beings on invisible planes. 6ther, surer
means, lin$ed to the development of the psychical and above all
mental senses, enable the human being to contact the ;igher
,pheres.

that the form of which is the product of human imagination. t is
fitting to specify that that same form, thus elaborated, can then be
inhabited by a spirit residing on the etheric :therefore, relatively
dense8 plane, that is in no wise the decedent's and that ma$es a
game of the medium and of the audience. *nother category of 9hosts
is that whose shape is the defunct's real etheric body which, on
account o its density lin$ed to the paucity of evolution of the person
in -uestion, desagregates itself very slowly while that person's
=onsciousness is elsewhere already :astral plane, more or less high8.
This etheric body offers therefore a residence allowing the
manifestation of spirits, such as those who were Dust described, that
also amuse themselves at the expense of a credulous audience.

far it was almost always the sorcerers or practitioners of blac$
"magic" who used mummias. 6ne is tempted to thin$ that the latter
are necessary but to those low practices. *ctually, the mere name of
the person to be helped suffices to the @agus but generally the magic
act's beneficiaries feel reassured in giving a personal witness charged
with their magnetism :most often hairs8 for they believe that @agic
will be inoperative without that.

+8 TN.: This, if one see$s, out of curiosity, to $now his past and by
means of "violent" techni-ues. ;owever, if one evolves in
consciousness, purifying onesef and tending continually towards the
<ivine #rovidence, the ac-uired purity provo$es the awareness of
certain past lives, lin$ed directly to that which is now lived& in this
case, the drawbac$s which F. %ardon describes have no reason for
occurring& on the contrary, that $nowledge of the past "unties" the
$armic $nots for the new understanding which we have of the
situations currently lived offers us the means to act in the way wished
by the 0aw, to repair and to change a particular behaviour& than$s to
that process, the burden or the diverse trials of existence are then
lightened.

bodies. n fact, astral travel implies an almost total departure from
the bodies: the mental body, the psychical body and a part of the
etheric body leave the physical body. %ecause that latter body Doins
the travel, an action, initiated during that proDection, can have
material conse-uences.

+8 TN.: The physical body is not adapted to the climate, that is sure,
but it is advisable to specify that the other bodies, psychical and
mental, are not of the same "texture". *sia's environment, ways of
life and mentalities bound to millenary practices and rooted in almost
each of the inhabitants grant a flexibility and a sensitivity to those
subtle bodies which "esterners have much difficulty ac-uiring, failing
their relin-uishing their civili?ation and practicing at length diverse
exercises before obtaining any very concrete result.

)8 TN.: *$asha has here the meaning of "#rimordial and nfinite
,ource" and not speciMically "etheric substance", although the latter,
at a given moment, contains the "$armic decisions", ta$en on much
higher planes& it is so when the event is about to happen. ;owever,
the $armic investigation which Fran? %ardon advocates here is not
done by means of the usual clairvoyance, relatively dense :due to the
activity of the psychical and mental body8, that is often chancy for
submitted to the surrounding influences or to those of the
clairvoyant's own ,ubconscious. That search for $armic :or not8
authori?ation is followed by the "immediate $nowledge", tuned in
without image, and emitted originally by the very subtle bodies,
located beyond the mental plane. That implies therefore that the
@agus has a good development not only of his psychical and mental
body :if truth be told, still dense8, but also and above all of his high
bodies :=ausal, indeed "%uddhic ", body8& that is the result of a high
degree of spirituality and which is the prerogative of the "@agi", in
the actual meaning of the term.

which are called "the Tradition" or "Foundations of ;ermeticism "
:such as those which Fran? %ardon now reveals8 were and are still
$ept :for those that are not divulged8 on higher "lanes than the
mental sphere the contact of which demands a corresponding
spiritual and therefore ethical development& those secrets are the

clairvoyant.

only for a while& the human being, going out of that $ind of hypnosis,
recovers the awareness of his state of 'Four>pole being" and escapes

)8 TN.: "Theurgy": !tymologically "<ivine "or$". That explains that
any lower spirit obeys, without causing preDudice and to the @agus
and to anybody whomever, but if it is called up by a veritable
Theurgist, that is to say by a being who has in himself :a certain
degree of spiritual development liable to channel, if it be but for the
time of the 'itual, the <ivine !nergy,> in this type of =eremony,
essentially "white" :beneficial8, the spirit is not called to execute an
unhealthy order :harming someone, ...8 but generally to effect a wor$
of "transmutation" proper to the lower spheres& a very rare category
of Theurgists are entrusted with that particular purification& such was
one of the numerous tas$s assumed by the 9reat *pollonius of
Tyana. Failing that interior "state" :Heritable @agus, 9od's
representative8, the lower spirit sees who is really the operator :his
faults, his imperfections, etc..8 and then, instead of being
"respectfully submitted" to him, it scoffs at him and can cause him
great damage: mental, psychical, even physical.
+8 TN.: 6ne should be mindful of the fact that all the powers which a
human being may possess and manifest are not necessarily the sign
of an immense spiritual evolution and thus the guarantor of his Cnion
with 9od. ndeed, all hinges on the plane used, at the start, to act:
the dense planes :considered in relation to the spiritual planes,
beyond the mental plane8 being involved, that is to say the etheric,
psychical or astral and mental planes, even an "ill>directed" :wor$ing
with the dar$ forces8 person can develop those powers. The ,iddhis
to which refers Fran? %ardon are the powers ac-uired by the
development of the bodies superior to the mental plane, a truly
spiritual development, and therefore "divinely directed"& those
powers can or not manifest themselves on lower planes, that hinges
on the <ivine #rovidence's "ill at a given moment and "the nitiate"
or the *dept then performs true "miracles, according to the <ivine
0aw, but they are the only ones that deserve the exhaustive meaning
attributed to the word "power".

that sense, one can spea$ of a recollection's obliteration or
destruction. This phenomenon is temporary however, when one
considers a series of lives: one can indeed lose memory during a
whole incarnation but, actually, in the pure etheric substance :a given
,ystem's *$ashic *rchives that are obliterated > or rather absorbed
by a 9reat 0ogos > only at the 9reat #ralaya's time8, nothing is
obliterated nor destroyed& it is only the etheric lin$, enabling the
reading of what was recorded there, which is altered. This can
happen either by a magical action or following an intense fear or an
immense sorrow& nevertheless, those are the same #owers that
provo$e the phenomena: Fire :by a horrible sight8 or electro>
magnetism :prompted by the shoc$'s intensity8.

Farma8 that permits or forbids, at a given time, the spreading of a
$nowledge, of a science, of a techni-ue, liable to ease its life,
alleviate its sufferings, etc... for those trials are deserved and lead to
the evolution of the =ollective =onsciousness. The wars, the
epidemics, the struggles for Freedom, of these last two centuries,
balanced a retributive Farma and thus made possible the acceleration
of the scientific "discoveries", of the -uality and of the generali?ation
of the analgesics, of the technological progresses& those are factors
that completely transformed life in a physical body and the material
environment of the individuals. f therefore a @agus divulges a
$nowledge while "the $armic hour" has not come for @an$ind yet, he
incurs a ris$..., but generally the @agus remains silent and uses his
$nowledgefor himself and in the event for his own& that is not egoism
but mere $nowledge of the 0aw.

to budge.
