The Order of the Green Dragon (or the Green Dragon Society depending on your source) were/are a Japanese secret society dedicated to the mastery of the human body, and of the Time Organism or the Etheric Body. Mastery allowed access to great power apparently.


They also had powers of prophecy.


Other sources suggest that they were able to control the elements within their bodies (I think that these may have been the five oriental elements rather than the four western elements). Higher level initiates had to prove themselves by forcing a seed to germinate by their willpower.


The Japanese order is distinguished from western secret societies by it's exacting demands - especially the price of failure.

Karl Haushofer (General and Professor) of Geo-Politics infamy (Alan LeVey was also a fanboy), was one of only three westerners ever, who have become members of the Green Dragon Society.


Haushofer was a military attaché in Tokyo when he joined before WW1.


Later Haushofer was a Nazi and was influential in forming Nazi racial policy. Haushofer was also a member of the Vril Society or Luminous Lodge. The Vril Society is supposedly one of the sources of the Nazi party with early party members overlapping with the Vril, Thule and other secret societies. [1]

The Vril Society, and later the Nazis, organized expeditions to Tibet starting in 1926, ending in 1942 trying to contact the Cave Oracles of Tibet. These expeditions contacted the Adepts of Agarthi. In 1929 some of the adepts returned to Germany with the Germans and formed lodges in Berlin, Munich and Nuremburg, though some sources say that only a lodge in Berlin was formed.

The Tibetan monks/adepts of Agarthi in Germany were known as the Society of Green Men.


It's foremost adept was known as the Monk of the Green Gloves/Hands [2], who was renowned for his clairvoyant abilities and had mastered prophecy. Hitler had audiences with him.

The Society of the Green Men were apparently in astral contact with the Green Dragon Society, and had been for several centuries. The Green Dragon Society sent seven members to aid the Society of Green Men in Germany. The Green Men were to help further the Nazi cause and the projected mutation that would turn the Aryans into God-Men. The activities of the Green Men were under heavy Nazi security.

The Green Men fell out of favor in 1943/44.


This may have due to the failure of the Tibetans to alter the course of the war, or it may have due to the involvement of Haushofer's son in the 1944 assassination attempt on Hitler. Some sources say that they were put on concentration camp rations. It is reported that when the Russians entered Berlin in 1945 they came across numerous bodies of Tibetans.


They had all committed suicide by a knife stroke to the stomach. Some sources say the monks were in German uniform without insignia, other sources say they were naked. Because of his failure, Haushofer killed his wife and then committed seppuku himself at the end of the war, as would be expected by the Green Dragon Society.

The last remnants of the Society of the Green Men were eliminated in 1959 by the Communists after the Chinese annexation of Tibet in 1950.

I don't know about the current status of the Green Dragon Society in post war Japan, but there might be a link up between the Green Dragon and refugee Green Men.





[1] - Many members of the Vril, Thule, and OTO societies were forced to join the Ahnenerbe. The connection between Green Dragon/Men and the Karotechia should be obvious.
[2] - I'm not sure of the exact title used it's in Pauwel & Bergier though.
