TEMPLE OF WOTAN
Holy Book of the Aryan Tribes
Out of Chaos came light,
Out of Will came life,
Without form, without time
From iron black space
Through beads of crystal flame.
Cosmic rays of light and sound,
Spinning in seas of universal ether,
Piercing the armatures of spheres.
From the Mysteries—it comes.
From Legend—it comes.
From ancestors of a thousandages—it comes.
TEMPLE OF WOTAN
Holy Book of the Aryan Tribes
A people whose roots are strong cannot be vanquished.
Nature’s Law and the ethnic mythos of a healthy race have an unalterable hereditary bond,
replete in their time-tested ancestral deities. It is the measure of a collective thought and will,
a path to higher being on the heroic foundation of ages; it is a CREED of IRON!
Through millennia Wotanism has navigated the folk-soul of Western man,
Nature and that great mystery of life which manifests from the One.
Nowhere are the essentials of Wotanism better presented in one dynamic volume
than in this Wotansvolk manifesto, CREED of IRON,
the consummate guidebook for all practicing Wotanists.
CREED of IRON
Prophet Wodensson (David Eden Lane) on Odinism at Yule Blot 2006
We have some people here today who are new to Odinism. So please bear with me if some of you have heard some of this before. I want to talk about what religions are, what they have been, and what our religion should be. Secondly I want to point out two ancient struggles that have dominated life in the Western world for thousands of years.
Religions are created to influence minds and thus control people. Period!!! This does not mean that a religion cannot be beneficial and necessary. But historically religions with noble motives have soon been corrupted by Kings, Emperors, Politicians, Priestcrafters, and of course the (((money powers))) who always rule from behind the scenes. Additionally of course, many primitive religions have been formed with no noble motives whatsoever.
But our major religions were originally created by Adepts in the ancient “Mysteries.” In these religions the Adepts used Mythologies to both conceal and preserve their occult wisdom and power. The word occult means hidden. These myths sometimes incorporated historical events and old legends. However, the myths were also deliberately made so outrageous that men of perception would recognize that they were not meant to be taken literally.
The myths also served as a kind of emotional shorthand. For example, explaining concepts like courage, strength, or masculinity to a young boy is well nigh impossible. But planting images of mighty Thor smashing giants and dragons with his hammer, Mjollnir forms a masculine personality.
There are also common themes running through the various religions created by the Adepts. One of them being the one plus twelve scenario. In the religion forced on Europe by torture, murder, deceit and bribery, King Solomon has 12 tribes of Israel and Jesus has 12 apostles. Always it represents the sun and the 12 signs of the Zodiac to insiders. Christianity is of course poorly disguised Sun worship. Long before Christianity the Persian God Mithra was said to be born to a virgin at the winter solstice of the Sun. Born to a virgin, killed and resurrected. Mithra then replaced Sol Invictus, the mighty Sun God as the major deity of the Roman legions. So when the new Universal religion was created to unite the many races, nations and cultures of the degenerate Roman slave empire in 325 AD, the Mithra myth had to be included. Other myths included Odin who hung on a tree and was pierced with a spear, and Zoroaster hose birth was attended by wise men from the East.
So today Christians worship on Sunday to honor the Sun. Christmas is the birth of the Sun at the winter solstice. Easter is the resurrection of the Sun directly East at the spring equinox. Jesus is portrayed with a halo as was Horus, the son of the Egyptian God Osiris, and on and on.
Now about the two ancient struggles. The first is between Imperialism with its offspring called Universalism. The attempt to the rule the world as in “New World Order” is nothing new. Empires of the past include Persia, Greece, Rome, Spain, France, England and more. Today’s dominate empire could best be called Judeo-America as America has occupation troops in over 130 countries and has 800 military bases world wide.
Universalists try to destroy the integrity of all races, nations, and cultures by mixing all people into one mass of obedient slaves and subjects.
Opposed to Universalists are those who remain true to Nature’s highest law which is the preservation of one’s own kind. Since this highest law requires exclusive territory as well as sovereign rule over that territory, conflict is unavoidable. Additionally because an indigenous religion that grows out of the soul of a people will preserve that people, a Universalist religion will tolerate no other.
So now you know why in 789 AD the “Holy Roman Emperor,” Charlemagne called a treaty meeting with 4500 Saxon Chieftains, followers of our indigenous religion of Odinism. He then surrounded them with a Christian army, murdered them all, beheaded them, and threw their bodies in the Alle river.
The other ancient struggle, separate but related, is between Reason and Belief. The enemy of the Christians is sometimes called Lucifer. In an unabridged dictionary you will find that the word Lucifer is Latin in derivation. From Luci we get the word Lucid, meaning clear thinking. The exact Latin meaning of Luci is “The Light of Reason.” While Fer is a Latin suffix meaning bringer. So Lucifer is the Bringer of the Light of Reason.
And now you see why the Christians spent 1500 years torturing, murdering and imprisoning every scientist, philosopher, voice of reason, or Pagan in Europe, thus bringing on the dark ages of disease, ignorance and suffering. In the 30 years war alone at least one third of Central Europe slaughtered each other over whether this alien anti-nature, genocidal suicidal religion should be Catholic or Protestant.
Understand that when the gates of the mind are opened to the first irrational premise then there are no barriers to a flood of insanity. But conversely when people are taught how to think instead of what to think, the rule of tyrants is in jeopardy. So for 1500 years our folk were forced on pain of death or torture to profess literal belief in the Judeo-Roman myths of an alien religion.
(((Who))) do you suppose hi-jacked a Mystery religion so that (((they))) could call themselves God’s Chosen People? And (((who))) might have hired the Roman Empire to murder everyone in Europe who resisted?
Could it be the (((ones))) who claim they were holocausted in Egypt, in Persia, by Romans, by the Inquisition, by the Germans, by the Muslims, etc. etc. adnauseum infinitum?
History is a fable, conceived in self-serving deceit and promulgated by those who benefit. The propaganda of the victor becomes the history of the vanquished. Always ask yourself, “Who benefits?”
So what should a religion teach? First of all the esoteric must serve and play second fiddle to the practical, because if a people cease to exist then all else is irrelevant. Secondly, a religion must teach that Nature and Nature’s laws are the work of the “quote ‘Creator’ unquote,” regardless of what one considers the originating force to be. God, or Gods, or accident, or intelligences grown out of eternity and infinity, it doesn’t matter. Nature’s laws are immutable and again the highest law is preservation of one’s own kind as in the 14 Words. Call them a divine command.
One question that is constantly asked is what about a soul or immortality. I like to quote the words of Odin in the Havamal. “Cattle die, Kinsman die, I too shall die. What does not die is the fame of a great man’s deeds.” I translate that to mean the “effect of anyone’s deeds.”
Admittedly we are inconsequential beyond comprehension in the size of the universe. But on the other hand we can be valuable beyond comprehension as a link in destiny’s chain. Our influence lives on forever in the lives of our children, in the philosophies we pass on to them and to others. Often our influence grows like ripples in a pond after a pebble is thrown into it. And some throw huge rocks into the pond and cause large waves.
As for survival of our personal egos, that is pure speculation. I’ll dream of pleasures with beautiful Valkyrie in Valhalla and hope for the best. But I have little time to speculate when the survival of my folk is threatened now in this reality.
Let us discuss the Bifrost bridge which in Odinist mythology is guarded by the God Heimdall. This myth is an example of concealing yet preserving ancient wisdom. The bridge is the link between our conscious minds and our subconscious minds as well as perhaps a collective consciousness as science has proven with for example the 100 monkey experiment. This experiment proved a collective link between identical species despite total physical separation.
The subconscious mind is perhaps millions of times more powerful than the conscious mind. Even the example of so-called Idiot Savants demonstrates the incredible unknown possibilities within our minds. An idiot savant may be unable to even tie his own shoes, but might be able to perform huge multi-digit mathematical computations almost instantly with the accuracy of a computer.
He who crosses the Bifrost bridge becomes a superman. But Heimdall guards that bridge carefully so that only the altruistic, the worthy and the self disciplined can cross. Fasting, mantras and meditation are among the steps across the bridge. This is nothing supernatural. All that exists is composed of electromagnetism at various wavelengths, vibrations, patterns and coagulations. Mantras align the patterns which comprise thoughts and ideas. Meanwhile fasting cleanses all cells of the body, including brain cells of toxins.
In the ancient Egyptian mysteries a prospective initiate spent three days in a coffin inside the Great Pyramid, devoid of all sensory stimulation. In the first or gnostic Christian mysteries the three days spent by Christ in a tomb are coding telling of the Initiation process. Again, recognize that religious myths have concealed meanings and only primitive minds take them literally.
But let me close by repeating, when the life of the folk is threatened, the esoteric must either serve the practical or take second place to the practical.
Hail the Gods, meaning the wisdom of our ancestors.
Wotanism (Odinism) by Prophet Wodensson
History is replete with innumerable examples of the power and importance of religious creeds. The purpose of this dissertation is not to demand, or even expect absolute conformity between various individuals who call themselves Wotanists or Odinists. Indeed, there are “Wotanists” whose beliefs would conform to the popular definition of Atheist.
However, when I decided some twenty years ago that a religion was a necessary and vital weapon in our struggle against genocide, it was with the knowledge that the vast majority of our folk possess what I call a “Godsense.” That then is a power that must not be ignored.
But before a subject so vital to the survival of the white race can be covered accurately it is necessary that terms be defined with precision.
The proponents and perpetrators of a religion may design its creed for any number of purposes, some constructive, some destructive. Unfortunately, the base, power hungry, and unprincipled men who have dominated the Western world for 2500 years were not about to permit the growth or continuation of any religion which might interfere with their control, wealth or authority. And of course any religion restricted to a particular race or nation was a hindrance to imperialism, which we now call one world government.
On the other hand, a universalistic religion would serve to unite the races, nations and cultures of an empire. And so, under the orders of Constantine, Emperor of Rome, in 325 AD, as Christians reckon time, a new “Catholic” religion was created. The word Catholic means universal in Latin. (See Websters 3rd International Unabridged Dictionary for example)
The diligent and honest researcher will discover that Constantine’s new religion was an almost exact parody of Mithraism, which was the major religion of the Roman legions. The events which formed the dogma of the new religion were then ascribed to Palestine, an area over one thousand miles away, and back dated over three hundred years so that denial was difficult.
And additionally the money powers behind Rome had themselves inserted as “God’s Chosen People” in the new religion, along with a fraudulent history.
Now at this point the defenders of Christianity are undoubtedly going to protest, saying that the Catholic church persecuted the Jews. But by their own dogma one of “God’s Chosen” named St. Peter was the first bishop (Pope) of Rome. And the most infamous torturer of the inquisition named Torquemada was one of “God’s Chosen.” There were internal power struggles which were then exploited and mislabeled by the internally persecuted “Chosen Pets of God.”
Now at this point it is necessary to clarify another word, to wit: “Semitic.” There exists on this earth three root races and mixtures. The root races of man are Caucasoid (white), Mongoloid (oriental) and Negroid (black).
For many centuries the Eastern end of the Mediterranean sea was the crossroads for trade between Asia, Africa and Europe. To form alliances the sons and daughters of the merchants and bankers were married off to each other, often of other races. And so a mixed race of people called Semites was formed carrying the genes of all three root races. Today they are called Arabs and Jews.
Both are Semites.
The next word we must clarify is “God.” In the teachings of Hermetic philosophers, both ancient and modern, there exists a force and intelligence in the universe. Today we would call it a “Cosmic Mind.” Because of the shapes into which nature forms, among many reasons, God was called the Grand Geometrician/Mathematician of the Universe. As modern man understands that all things, from the tiny solar systems of atoms to the massive solar systems of the universe, to human thought, consists of electromagnetic forces and patterns, we discover that the Hermetic philosophers were perhaps wise beyond their times.
Of course when defining words used in religion we should also be aware of the Cabalistic coding which is so often included. For example, when Sir Francis Bacon and the British Royal Society created the coding system of the King James Bible, they also added letters to the alphabet, set them in order, and formed many new words.
Let A = 1 B =2 C = 3 D = 4 etc., and you discover the following. This is the word God:
G O D
7 / 4
74 – The Sun, not the son.
Again, lettering A = 1 B =2 C = 3 etc., here are some words from the King James Bible and their occult (i.e. hidden) meaning.
The G 7 of the M 13 is 74
O 15 J 10 E 5
S 16 E 15 S 19
P 16 S 19 S 19
E 5 U 21 I 9
+L 12 + S 12 A 1
74 74 74
74 is the first function of an ancient mathematical device called the Magic Square of the Sun.
This coding was inserted so that an appointed time the permanent disclosures, i.e. (opening and shutting) of Isaiah 22 verse 22, and Revelation 3 verse 7 would take place. The King James Bible was then shepherded down through the centuries with the coding clarified as it became safer to do so. The “Shepherds” were adepts in secret societies which have also been the powers behind the scenes in the creation and destruction of nations, religions and philosophies.
Unfortunately, priestcrafters, in service to greedy and power hungry tyrants discovered that if they anthropomorphized the God force into a kind of glorified man, they could control people with the words “God said.” On this deception has rested the power of priests, usually for evil purposes, for thousands of years. “Holy books” filled with “God said,” have served the interests of kings, emperors and presidents for dozens of centuries.
Nearly thirty years ago, with all of this in mind, I began to search for religious concepts which would preserve our people. Things to consider were the history of various religions adopted by or forced on the Aryan race (1), (2), (3), (4), (5), genetic memory and the collective subconscious as explained by Carl Gustav Jung, the nature of Gods, Goddesses and myths, appeal to the racial soul, an entrenched priesthood, alleged holy books, modern science, and on and on.
At the time, I began to search for an appropriate religious approach to aid in the struggle against genocide, the only existing creed was that known as Identity Christianity. And to be just as honest as possible the doctrine did inspire some good men such as Gordon Kahl and several members of the Order Brueder Schweigen. But, its adherents did not total one in ten thousand of those who call themselves Christian. Additionally, Identity teachers demanded literal belief in bible stories which conflicted with science and natural law.
Even worse I discovered that Identity believers spent more time denying that their holy book said what it said, than teaching something useful. Love your enemies, turn the other cheek, sex is sin, only virgin men are preferred by God, give unto Ceasar, God is love, or alternately God is vengeance, and on and on, pollutes their holy book. And then of course history shows that Christianity is the most powerful weapon ever used against the freedom and existence of the white race.
Well, my purpose here is not to attack others whose goals are noble, even if I don’t see any chance of success in their creed.
I looked for a religious creed that might appeal to the genetic memory of the largest body of our folk. Also a creed that would stir the warrior soul. The logical answer was Wotanism, although at the time I found only one small organization headed by an elderly lady named Else Christensen which embraced a form of the doctrine. And they called it Odinism. However, in the nineteen eighties some other small publishers showed up, also calling themselves either Odinist or Asatru. Asatru meaning true to the old Gods called the Aesir.
Unfortunately, or perhaps in some cases by malicious design most of these publishers denied the natural law of racial self-preservation and separation in an attempt to be politically correct and respectable.
So, I first chose the name Wotanism over Odinism. First because W.O.T.A.N. makes a perfect acronym for Will Of The Aryan Nation. Secondly because he was called Wotan on the European continent and only called Odin in Scandinavia.
Therefore Wotan appeals to the genetic memory of more of our ancestors. And finally because a split had to be made with the game players, deceivers and universalists who had usurped the name Odin.
My next step was to form a doctrine or creed for modern Wotanism. Of course the whole reason for the project was to stop the forced mixing and murder of the white race. So it had to be true to natural law, the highest law of nature being the preservation of one’s own kind. It had to accommodate not only my own ‘Godsense‘ but that of others. And it had to totally destroy the New Age kind of suicidal deception being spread by the ‘‘respectable” Odinists.
Perhaps the greatest and most dangerous or suicidal deception of the New Agers is that the force and intelligence we call God is made up of, or infused with an emotion called “love.” The fact is, the Creator made lions to eat lambs, wolves to eat fawns, hawks to eat sparrows, and the races of men to fight for life, women, food, territory and power. There is no love love love!! There is just law law law!! Harsh, sometimes cruel, but still divine law!!
It is not my purpose in this dissertation to discuss the meanings of the Gods, Goddesses, myths or runes of Wotanism. By studying the philosophical concepts attached to each rune a person can develop a complete and natural personality. We have more Gothi learning and teaching natural law through the myths every month.
So let me leave you for now with one of my own proverbs, perhaps my favorite, to wit:
“Nature and nature’s laws are the work of the Creator. Therefore nature’s laws are God’s laws. And the first and highest law of nature is the preservation of one’s own kind.” – David Lane
The power of a religion was demonstrated in the suicide bombings of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Service to the perceived commands of “God” can even override the instinct for self-preservation. Giving credit where it is due, the proponents of a religion called Identity Christianity realized the power of a religion when they formulated its theology as a tool to resist the Judeo-American/Judeo-Christian murder of the White race. However, for reasons detailed here, the strategy has been a complete and utter failure. It has not stopped forced bussing, open borders, Anti-White propaganda, miscegenation or the ever-accelerating plunge to extinction. Why? First, it clings to the absurd idea that America is “God’s chosen land,” for the preservation of the White race.
Since America is the murderer of our race, such nonsense brings ridicule instead of capable recruits. Second, Identity clings to the New Testament. Most Wotanists like Christians* also believe in an* intelligence and force within the Universe, which we call God or All-Father. And polls show that the majority of our Folk share that belief. Wise men know that our limited senses cannot perceive the near infinite vibrations, wave lengths, dimensions etc., that may exist. However, modern White folk do not accept that God is so insecure that he will torture mortals eternally if they don’t spend every 7th day telling him how great he is. The motive force of the entire Universe did not turn itself into a mortal man in order to have itself killed by mortal men, in order to keep itself from eternally torturing mortal men. The God of Nature is not irrational. Neither is God composed of some emotion called love as New agers and Judeo-Christians teach.
The Creator made lions to eat lambs, hawks to eat sparrows, and the races of man to compete for life, territory and power. There is no love, just harsh, ruthless, pitiless, Natural Law. The New Testament is a religion of “afterlife” and the selfishness of personal “salvation.” The Old Testament is about the reality of this life on this earth. The philosophy of the Old Testament helped Jews conquer the world and get the power to sentence the White race to death. It teaches taking power, wealth and women, with cunning and force. Its philosophy will benefit any race or people. Aryans followed the New Testament and may soon be an extinct specie. No more needs be said!!! Nonetheless, a religion for White Folk is a vital necessity.
To that end I began teaching an updated form of our most common indigenous religion about 20 years ago. Its major deity is called Wotan, or Odin or Woden. Updated to be racial rather than tribal, and to remove any conflict with modern science. The Gods, Goddesses and myths of Wotanism represent the forces of Nature. They are used to mold the character of children, they are the power of symbolism, and they both preserve and conceal the ancient “Mysteries.” History shows that a religion must have a founder, often called a “prophet.” Since no one else assumed that role, I have done so. Recognizing full well the fate of “prophets” is usually scorn, ridicule, imprisonment or even death. About 1830, a man named Joseph Smith, along with Masonic Adepts in the “Mysteries”, formed a religion for the preservation of the White race. It was called Mormonism. It was restricted to the White race and it condoned Polygamy. Joseph Smith was slandered, called crazy, and thrown in prison, where he died. Now at age 63, with a life sentence in prison, I expect the same fate. So realize that I seek no glory from the Pyramid Prophecy or as a prophet of Wotanism.
The only reason for a true natural man to fight for wealth, fame or power is to acquire women, as sexy and young as he can. This is declared by Nature and extrapolation as we see bulls battle bulls, stallions battle stallions, and roosters battle roosters, for possession of females. And then Nature declares only the best shall breed, this for the strength and preservation of the race or specie. Since sexy young women are not a possibility for me, I receive no benefit from the prophecy. As for the adulation of the masses, I despise them. Today they call me a hater and a bigot because those with power and control of the press programmed them to believe such propaganda. If the day came that I had power and control of the media, they would love me. They are vacuous biological computers and their adulation is utterly meaningless. I have fought “Because the beauty of the White Aryan woman must not perish from the earth.” I did not fight to save biological computers (minds), which are no more than machines without a soul.
The fundamental theology of Wotanism is the 2nd of the 88 Precepts as follows: “Whatever people’s perception of God, or the Gods, or the motive force of the Universe might be, they can hardly deny that Nature and Nature’s Laws are the work of, and therefore the intent of, that force.” Since the first and highest Law of Nature is the preservation of one’s own kind, then the 14 Words, i.e. “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children” is a divine command of God, All-Father Wotan. This philosophy and theology stands on its own, simple and irrefutable, yet just as Joseph Smith relied on alleged hieroglyphs inscribed on golden tablets, so also Wotanism has its further validation. That is the function of the Pyramid Prophecy. However, that is not the only similarity, which is to be expected since Nature declares the same truths to all who observe her lessons with integrity.
The original Mormon religion, as said, taught Polygamy and racial separation. The race murdering U.S. government first forced them to abandon Polygamy. Later, the government passed the 19th amendment to the Constitution. Then the government forced the Mormons to accept racial integration with its inevitable miscegenation and genocide. The sequence was no accident. A race whose males are mentally castrated is easy to subdue. But a race whose males have unrestrained sexual libido, and who fight to keep the harem they dominate, cannot be defeated while yet they breathe. That’s why our organic indigenous religions were fertility cults. No disrespect to the word cult.
This is why Wotanism allows or promotes Polygamy, as did early Mormonism. Not demanding Polygamy of course since Wotanists believe in personal freedom and choice as much as is possible. The sex drive of the males of a race that wishes to survive must not be hindered, slandered, diminished, misdirected, and in revolutionary times even its excesses must be excused. A race whose males will not fight to the death to keep and mate with its females will perish. The symbols, geometry, mathematics and codes within the Pyramid Prophecy are accurate and appear to be beyond coincidence. How they came to be, and the strange inexplicable way in which they were revealed are not the subject or point. The purpose of the Pyramid Prophecy is promulgation of the 14 Words and 88 Precepts as foundations of a religion that will save the race of Galileo, Shakespeare, Kipling, Edison, Plato etc., from eternal extinction. Hopefully there are those of vision who will use it wisely in furtherance of Nature’s highest Law.

These are sure signs of a sick or dying Nation. If you see any of them, your guardians are committing treason:
• Mixing and destruction of the founding race;
• Destruction of the family units;
• Oppressive taxation;
• Corruption of the Law;
• Terror and suppression against those who warn of the Nation’s error;
• Immorality: drugs, drunkenness, etc.;
• Infanticide (now called abortion);
• Destruction of the currency (inflation or usury);
• Aliens in the land, alien culture;
• Foreign wars;
• Guardians (leaders) who pursue wealth or glory;
• Religion not based on Natural Law.
