From the most exotic ideas that never had drawn the West in the Tibet, that of expedition of Nazi, and the searches for the pure residues of Aryan race, it constitutes most eccentric.
On 19 January 1939, five members of Waffen-SS, the troops Nazi of Heinrich Himmler, passed via the ancient, arched gate that led to the holy city of Lhasa. As a lot of Europeans, they had extraordinary and fantastic aspects for the Tibet, in order that does report Orville Schell in the bookVirtual Tibet,"a clew this full imagination round removed and unknown land".
The drawings of expedition of Nazi, nevertheless, did not contain, in us acquaintance, search for Shangri-La, the lost ground which had a unique perfect and peaceful social system in order to it defends oneself in the infringements where cursed the remainder humanity.
On the contrary, the perfection that sought the Nazi was a idea of racial perfection that would justify their opinions in the world history and the German superiority.
But what affected this strange placement of Tibetan nuns next to officers of SS in the end of Second World War is a strange history of secret services, mysticism, racial pseudo-science, and political intrigue.
It was, in the substance, in a diplomatic and semi-scientific mission in order to they develop relations between Nazi Germany and the Tibet and they seek lost remnants one of fantastic Aryan race lost somewhere in Tibetan plateau.
Thus, they constituted expression the more widely widespread paranoid and eccentric ideas of Hitler in the love for nation and the property. And while Tibetians ignored completely the racist action of Hitler, the mission at 1939 in the Tibet remain a warning fable for how the foreigner ideas, the symbols, and the terminology can be used erroneously.
Certain militarists Nazi imagined the Tibet as a possible base in order to they attack in British India, and hoped that this mission would lead in a type of alliance with their Tibetians. About this they were at a part successful.
The mission received Reting Regent (that it had it led the Tibet from the death of 13th Dalai Lama in 1933), and indeed achieved in it convinces the Regent to agree with Adolf Hitler. But the Germans they was interested for the Tibet and for other reason. The officers of Nazi as Heinrich Himmler they believed that the Tibet provided shelter in the last ones from the Aryan races, their legend ancestors of German race, which the heads of possessed supernatural forces that the Nazi could use in order to they conquer the world.
This was the season of European extension, and many theories ensured ideological excuse for the imperialism. In Germany the idea of one Aryan or "superior" race they were strengthened by the extreme nationalism, the idea of German superman made from the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche, and opera celebration of Wagner of Scandinavian heroic narrations and Teytonic of mythologies.
Very before the mission 1939 in the Tibet, the Nazi had been lented Asiatic symbols and language and used him for their own aims. A important number of articles of oratory and symbolism of Nazi they emanate from the language and the religions of Asia. Term "aryan",as an example, it emanates from Sanskritik word arya, that means superior.
In Bedes, the most ancient Indian holy texts, the term describes a race with persons of open colour from Central Asia that fought and subjugated the persons with the closed colour (or Dravidian) the Indian continent. Linguistic proofs support the massive immigration of persons of Central Asia, that is now reported as Indoeuropeans, in India and Europe roughly between 2000 and 1500 B.C.E., even if he is not evident if these Indoeuropeans were the himself with their Arioys of Bedon.
