9.- Forty Years Later
Bovisio died in the morning of July 3rd, 1962, in Cordoba, Argentina,
forty years ago, and left to the disciples an extraordinary mission as
his heritage: “Mother’s Sons, expand Cafh and proclaim the
Renunciation Message on Earth to all the world!” (“1962 Full
Moon Message”, XIX, 16). These were practically his last written
words, his spiritual will. Now, first year of the third millennium, Teachings
containing the Renunciation Message are read through Internet in forty
countries of the planet with more than half million files downloaded,
and the interest in knowing them go on to persist, at present with 45,000
monthly accesses to the site.
Forty is a mystic number with deep meaning: the pilgrimage of the Hebrew
people following Moses through rocky ground in Sinai, until their arrival
in the promised land, lasted forty years; Jesus’ trial in the wilderness
before he started his redeeming work lasted forty days; one’s blood
needs forty days of abstinence before its renewal; and forty days is the
number of trial and regeneration. Teachings of the Master remained silent
for many years, and became mighty in the shadows, and now, in the beginning
of the Aquarian Age, expand all over the world without obstacles and limits,
such as they were written, in freedom.
The Master addresses his demand to his disciples, and calls them “Mother’s
Sons”, upon which his expectations and future of the work are dependent.
Nobody felt some time that these Teachings could exist out of a personal
meditation field so that they could reach everybody. But Cafh ended up
long time ago, and now this Renunciation Message expands over the whole
Earth, over the whole Universe. And between the Renunciation Way to save
some few and the Renunciation Way for whole Humanity, there are forty
years with trials and suffering, which need to be explained for the sake
of the spiritual peace of those who received the injunction of expanding
and had to walk alone on the wilderness.
If Santiago Bovisio’s mission had been to create a spiritual system
by means of concepts and ideas alone, such as many modern authors did,
it would be sufficient for him to publish his books and to give lectures,
being successful from the beginning. But he tried to transform men, leading
his own soul to similar souls coming to him; he was not a writer; he was
a Master of Wisdom. So he founded the Holy Order of American Knights of
Holy Order of Fire
Bovisio’s main work has been to create the Holy Order of Fire in
America. It was its predecessor in Venice (since remotest times) that
educated him in his early youth and gave him a foundational mission in
America. An European Order –Chef– was smashed by fascists,
and its members were killed or scattered (“History of Esoteric Orders”,
XVI, 6, 7, 8 and 9; “Great Initiates of the Aryan Race”, V,
The Holy Order of Fire is astral, and its terrestrial manifestations in
doctrine, actions, expansion, contraction, power and authority are a reflection
of the Original Order. Any separate, independent or reformist deed, produced
by its terrestrial derivations, brought its immediate failure.
The Order founded in America was a reflection of its astral source, and
its legitimacy is established on a Perpetual Regulation subject to Vow
of Fidelity. After the Founder’s death, Cafh ended up as a result
of personal actions detached from the Doctrine, or adulterations of the
The Work contains two fundamental parts:
1) Renunciation Doctrine –preserved in this Internet site and dictated
by the Astral Master of the Order, the Monitor (Girolamo Savonarola),
and adapted to characteristic American minds of these days– has
been received by the Founder, who wrote it in Spanish language.
2) An esoteric organization, subject to the Traditional hierarchical Order
of Teutonic Knights, transmitted by Chef from Venice; this organization
had to be depository of the Doctrine.
This Doctrine prevailed in spirit and letter, in spite of setbacks in
tumultuous and destructive times of Argentine life in the last half century
up to present days, and perhaps an expansion of the Renunciation Doctrine
is the result of such a seclusion in the wild and permanent silent fidelity
of the disciples. Strictly speaking, this Teaching is permanent and continuous,
and received in the innermost of one’s being; writings here published
are author’s handwritings and notes helping sustain ideas. Such
an extraordinary dissemination of the Teachings –which you can find
in monthly statistics sent by the Internet server– would had been
impossible without a perseverant adhesion in adversity.
Those readers who tell us by e-mail their adhesion to the Master and their
fidelity to the Teachings reveal the efficacy of Renunciation and the
urgent need to find the Way in the dark. Some communications come from
distant countries, in other continents. The Teaching is everywhere, such
as the Founder left them, within the immediate reach of a needy soul;
it is the Renunciation Way for Salvation of all.
In 1957 Full
Moon (“Renunciation Message”, XIX, 11), the Master exclaimed,
“Look at the valley of the world, with souls claiming for their
salvation and receive, as a response, darkened light-beams, roars of profaned
abysses, prophetic destruction voices or hope voices given by intermediaries!
Sons of the Mother, why don’t you get down among men and teach them
your Renunciation experience? Take to an anguished and expectant world
your Renunciation Message!”.
From 1957 up to his death, always he claimed for expansion. How to do,
what instruments to use, what right way to use for Message to reach good
destination? The Master passed away, and his disciples did not know what
to do. They developed experiences and tries, but with poor results. Expansion
in the world was the work, the Sons’ mission, and justification
of the Holy Order. But it was not the time, there were no proper tools
and clear discrimination about the way to follow; the Teachings had not
been understood, “The Sons’ power is quite great, but Renunciation
is for Humanity!” (“Renunciation Way”, XVIII, 10). In
spite of clear and unequivocal injunctions, the disciples felt the Master’s
Work constituted a private possession, and the one who did not enter the
Order could not get the Teachings.
In our opinion, that quarantine of trials –temptation to power in
society, alluring fleeting success, fascinating money in abundance, vanity
feeling to be single and exquisite as to ceremonial, and inflated ego–
was necessary to separate straw from wheat, so that the wind of modern
life may carry useless things away, remaining the seed alone: authentic
Founder’s Teachings and inner, perseverant, painful and secret fidelity
of Faithful Disciples.
We had to wait for the harvest time, in the beginning of the New Age,
in the Third Millennium, along with Redeemer Maitreya’s actions;
now expansion mechanisms are ready and mature on the whole planet: instantaneous,
accurate and free communications, without intermediaries, from Master
Santiago’s mouth to an immediate, direct and expectant screen, navigating
trough a magical dimensionless space. All Teachings start from an infinitesimal
point at the same time, reaching thousands of homes in most important
nations of the globe. Such a long-awaited repercussion has taken place:
to be everywhere and nowhere in particular. It is the most beautiful and
categorical proof of the Great Current Power in the Renunciation Way.
It is the accomplishment of Aquarian prophecies: spiritualized matter,
friendly nearness to a Master of Wisdom by means of most advanced communication
beings who were with the Founder and his Work, at any time, even after
his death, were predestined, and if not, they would create predestination
by participating in the Order’s Gifts. In Master Santiago’s
view, most important Vow was the First, that is, Vow of Silence, for it
enabled a participant to enter a superhuman dimension for whole life.
So this Vow of Silence cannot be dispensed, and belongs to an endless
supernatural order. Although Cafh is not an Order at present, although
many Sons have quitted many years ago, and although others may have been
set aside or fired by diverse causes, links established remain potentially
up to the time of death.
And many that at present are contacting the living Master’s thought
by means of this page, also are creating predestination for future life.
Teachings are not only text and information; they are a magnetic force
intensely vibrating in touch with souls looking for them; Teachings mean
to be in tune with more and more intense cosmic waves by a planetary expansion
of Maitreya’s redeeming aura, and to participate in rebuilding the
world and experiencing a new way to live.
We exhort all those who knew the Founder and had the privilege to hear
directly his words, or are in touch with his words, to strengthen their
adhesion to this Renunciation Way, such as the teachings expound it in
a marvelous way.
We exhort souls of the world, wherever they are, to study, meditate and
further Teachings here offered; they come from a Master of Wisdom, who
reached the highest realization summits, and devoted his life to save
We exhort those who are responsible for mystic ways and educational organizations
of most varied currents, whatever be the language of the words, not to
hinder or obstruct the dissemination of Master Santiago’s Teachings;
these Teachings have been made with fraternal love at moments of History
in which Humanity is staggering and running the risk of being destroyed.
Nobody can hinder changes announced by Great Initiates; but the bigger
the number of faithful disciples following the Renunciation Way, the lesser
the damage, and many beings will be saved. Forty years after Master Bovisio’s
death, it is the time for the truth of his Teachings, and they are teaching
men all over the world.
