Tibet and the Nazis

In a strange twist of fate ... this 'Bon Culture' Buddhist statue (which was originally gold gilded,  and that's how I have set it in the picture), was found by the Nazis in Tibet in 1938, by German scientist Ernst Schafer.

The 'Iron Man' - 'Bon culture' pre Buddhist statue.

His expedition was supported by the Nazis, in particular by Heinrich Himmler, the head of the SS, who apparently believed the Aryan race originated in Tibet ..... my how his little heart must have beaten when presented by this proof positive in all his racial theories. How unfortunate and strange a coincidence was the fact that the sign on the statues front, was exactly what Himmler's 'Indiana Jones' Style expeditions were looking for.

Of course most of us know that the 'swastika' on the god Vaisravana's chest means to be good ... but more generally 'divine' ..... but the Nazi's were rather ill educated as a group.

What more interests scientists now, is that after the statue turned up in a private collectors hands in 2007, it was found that it was made from a highly valuable meteorite. Researchers say the 1,000-year-old object with a swastika on its stomach, is made from a rare form of iron with a high content of nickel. They believe it is part of the Chinga meteorite, that fell in the border region of eastern Siberia and Mongolia about 15,000 years ago.

The 'Bon Culture' period, was a dynastic period, which may have existed just before the current form of Buddhism took over in Tibet during the 10th and 11th centuries ....
