Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov

The music of the spheres


In the 16th century Nostradamus wrote the following in one of his prophecies:

In a poor family a child with blonde hair will be born
From a Balkan country this eagle will fly
And settle in the land of the Rooster
His name is the same as mine and
the world will remember him for a long time
His voice will be heard by people on earth
And it will be followed by departure and disaster
And a new time will come

Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, is born at the dawn of the twentieth century, 31th January 1900 in Serbzy, in a poor family of a small village of the Macedonian at the feet of the Babouna Planina. his real name is Michael Ivanoff.

As a teenager Mikhaël had a very strong spiritual nature and was a voracious reader of Bulgarian translations of spiritual books. He began to practice meditation, fasting and breathing exercises, among other things, and at sixteen experienced his first spiritual awakening, during which he heard the music of the spheres(Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov - A Master of Our Time- Christian Paaske).

In 1916, verification an extraordinary event, during a meditation, Mikhaël means music of the spheres (Harmony and Health ;The life of a Master in the west of Frenette; The Mystery of Light, Morson Publishing of G.Feuerstein, Luminous living: God's heaven on Earth, our golden age of Richard Shargel ).

The meeting with the teacher Deunov


The young Aivanhov needed a teacher, and 17 years old he met the famous Peter Deunov. Deunov had founded in 1900 the Universal brotherhood White and had a nourished number of disciples but, because of his religious thought had been sent in exile.

Deunov that had the spiritual name of Beinça Douno ( had composed the songs, the paneuritmia, and had elaborated the methods and the exercises of base of the brotherhood , from he directed then until its dead women happened in 1944.

Same Deunov, will say relatively "to the Instruction that I transmit, does not say that it has been invented by Deunov, but says that it is the instruction of the brotherhood of the Light". The Universal brotherhood White woman is the union of all the spirits who live in goodness, wisdom, in love, in the truth at the service of God. his center is not in some place of the earth near sure people but everywhere where spirits feel to belong to this immense divine and human family (Frenette).

Also Aïvanhov later will say: "How many are those they worked for the creation of favorable conditions for the sons of God? When they are in sufficient amount, the tenebrous forces that for the moment act freely because of the human ambitions, will be imprisoned and absorbed from the center of earth. This concept is represented in the Apocalypse from Michele Archangel that submits I dredge. The Archangel Michael is a real entity and will be the head of the egregorous formed by the disciples of the brotherhood Universal White woman and when I say "disciples of the Universal brotherhood White woman" I mean all those who work for the light, for any religion or spiritual movement they belong "(The Fruits of the Tree of Life - The Kabbalistic Tradition ).

Mikhael is happy of the encounter with Peter Deunov, his spiritual distance can take one precise road with the guide of a Master! (Hommage a Peter Deunov).

In 1919, Master Peter Deunov, finished the exile, returned to Sofia and Mikhaël followed him, and I’s therefore that Peter Deunov very soon found love, the devotion, the spirit of sacrifice, the admiration and the veneration that the young disciple manifested to him. The Master watched by and protected his spiritual experiences (Lejbowicz ).

Mikhaël is enrolled in the University of Sofia (course of pedagogy, philosophy and psychology ) obtained the certificate that then allowed him to become university professor and director of a Pedagogical Institute to Sofia.

In 1937, faced to the rising threat of communism, Peter Deunov sent Mikhaël to France to spread his spiritual teaching. Mikhaël quickly learned French and began giving lectures at Sèvres, near Paris. In common with other spiritual initiates, he underwent periods of profound suffering but through the power of his spirit he was able to transform these experiences into what he called ‘precious stones’.


The Age of Aquarius- The Universal White Brotherhood and the mission of Michael - Kali Yuga

Deunov sustained, in 1914, in the beginning of the age of Aquarius (The Age of Aquarius - Society and Politics in the Light of Initiatic Science I) the epoch symbolically represented by an old Wise man that pours the water and that is a new wisdom, a new life blood for the humanity; during this epoch the Third Will (Feuerstein) he would have been revealed to the humanity («You are gods»).

The mission of Deunov had to be that to help the birth of a new spiritual cycle in the circle of which the usual truths, those of the Gospel and of all the great Sacred Texts would finally have been inclusive and you concretely realize thanks to the diffused knowledge and the constant application of the methods imparted by the science initiatic. It owed, instead, to be performed of Aivanhov, to deepen and to accomplishedly express the new spiritual direction and to embody such finality, extremely concrete and at the same time elevated: its Teaching will be characterized, in fact, both on the plan of the language, particularly simple and accessible also in to treat the most elevated truths, both on the plan of the methods begun us innumerable and deduced for meeting the different subjective characteristics of the single individuals (A New Earth - Methods, Exercises, Formulas, Prayers).

Sigla dell'Insegnamento di P.Deunov e d'O.M. Aïvanhov

It constituted presupposed fundamental and indispensable of these elevated aspirations, living one Saint and exemplary life. It is necessary to observe that while the culture accademic concerns and is involved, exclusively, the intellect of the person, the culture initiatic it concerns and it is involved all the members of the man (spirit, intellect, heart and will) and implies one deep coherence between lived life, the thoughts, the feelings and the pronounced words.

The concrete guideline of the initiatic knowledge of Mikhaël turned to the realization in the matter and to the ascetic withdrawal, which we have before pointed out, will not find definitive consecrated in the name "Omraam" assignated in 1959 in India: "Omraam is the symbol of all a process of concreteness: the invisible, impalpable idea that must incarnate on the earth so that the entire world can see it and touch it ". In this name they are found re-united the two processes: Om that the solve represents and Raam that it represents coagulate (Feurstein; Albums photo - p. 64).

Therefore, easy to understand the great admiration of Aïvanhov for Hermes Trismegistus. Constantly, the Master in fact stops himself on the words that enclose the secrets of the realization that Hermes has written in Emerald Tablet: "that that low is like that is up and that that is up is like that it is low "(The Splendours of Tipharet - Surya-yoga or yoga of the sun, Harmony - chap.VI "How thought is materialised on the physical plane").

It is Deunov that Aivanhov lead back their Instruction to the Master of all Masters, Melchizedec King of peace and justice. The Order of Melchizedec represents the true Tradition of Love, of Wisdom, and of the Truth already manifested also in Gospels in how much Jesus, as it turns out from the sacred witnesses, it belonged to the Order of Melkisedec.

In all the course of his activity, Aïvanhov has never stopped to exhort his disciples to participate with the heart and the thought to this great cosmic job of realization to which the beings of light and the men of good will participate to all.

Aïvanhov will still say: "Only Archangel Michael is in a position to win... with the aid of his army, will realize that he gives to centuries the multitude questions from the Creator. Here while we must be connected to the Archangel Michael, ask his protection and the possibility to operate with him in order to increase his Victoria. The light will prevail on the darkness: it has been foretold and therefore will be. Why not to participate to that event? The sons of God who will be enrolled in the name of those who would have participated to the combat of the Archangel Michele, the Genius of the Sun, this power of God between the most luminous, will receive the kiss of the Angel of the fire. Such kiss will not burn them but it will illuminate them!".

Also Rudolf Steiner in numerous conferences (The Archangel Michael: His Mission and Ours : Selected Lectures and Writing by Rudolf Steiner) is stopped on the new spiritual cycle (of the Michael Age) " Michael cannot fulfill his mission without humanity's cosmic vocation of freedom, individuality, and love. Human beings, too, depend on Michael for the fulfillment of their task . . . His great joy is helping those who of their own free deed enter the ranks of those collaborating in the great work of the invisible".

"Michael did not fight the present dragon in ages past, for then the dragon now meant was not yet a dragon. . . . Michael overcoming the Dragon is an important imagination. To receive the inflow of spiritual life into the sense world: this is the service of Michael from now on. We serve Michael by overcoming the Dragon that is trying to grow to its full height and strength in ideas, which during the past epoch produced materialism and which now threatens to live on into the future. To defeat this dragon means to stand in the service of Mi-cha-el. That is the victory of Michael over the Dragon."

Also the ' last conference held from R.Steiner in the 28/9/1924, is dedicated to the Michael Archangel. We must eradicate from the soul all fear and terror of what comes towards Man, out of the future. We must acquire serenity in all feelings and sensations about the future. We must look forward with absolute equanimity to everything that may come. And we must think only that whatever comes is given to us by a world-directive full of wisdom. It is part of what we must learn in this age, namely, to live out of pure trust, without any security in existence - trust in the ever-present help of the spiritual world. Truly, nothing else will do if our courage is not to fail us. And let us seek the awakening from within ourselves, every morning and every evening." (R.Steiner)

Also the sacred witnesses of India contain meaningful indications on the age in which we live called "Kali yuga" that is age of the iron, in order to evidence that in this age the humanity has caught up a dangerous point of removal from the Sky, the spirituality, just advanced Himself. According to these sacred witnesses after the age of the iron new age of the gold would have been come true one thanks to the participation of a great being that will have to come down on the earth helped from other disciples (Kalki-avatar).

Mikhael and the arrival in France

"To Paris, to leave from January 1938, Mikhaël Aïvanhov it holds public conferences that leave all astonished and that they make to flow a numerous but and too much changing one heterogenous auditorio much in order to assure continuity and stability to the work that it wants to realize.They form to Sèvres a small center (Izgrev). After, ( In the 1952 the first encounter fraternal to the Bonfin near Frejus and in the 1959 found the Videlinata center ( near Vevey in Switzerland.

The trip to India and the revelations Name Omraam

"In 1959, brother Mikhael (as he was called at the time), went traveling to India. There he met Neem Karoli Baba who gave him the name Omraam. “This name, says Georg Feuerstein, is made up of two famous Sanskrit mantras or words of power, om and ram. Om is the most sacred mantra of the Hindus. It stands for the Absolute, or Divine, itself. The syllable ram, which was rendered as “Raam” in French to assist with the correct pronunciation, is the mantra denoting the fire element.
The Master explained his initiatic name as follows: “Thus the name I was given in India, OMRAAM, corresponds to the two processes of “Solve” and “Coagula”: OM dissolves all things, rendering them suble and fine, and Raam materializes them. The name OMRAAM is the symbol of the process of concretization, the invisible, intangible idea that must incarnate on earth so that it can be seen and touched by the whole world.”

All this time, brother Michael had refused to be addressed as master by his disciples. He had always regarded himself as their fellow-disciple of his own teacher, Peter Deunov. Now everything was changed. His disciples, who had been following him for 22 years, insisted on paying him due respect, and he finally accepted being called “Master”. A true master, he explained, is one who knows the truth, is thoroughly familiar with and upholds the laws and principles of existence. He also has the will and ability to control his inner environment and to use this ability only in order to “manifest all the qualities and virtues of unselfish love.” Disinterestedness is unselfish love, which, for Aivanhov, finds its highest expression in the known universe in the sun. He also said: “The ideal of a disciple is to free himself from all restrictions, to throw off everything that hampers him, and become like light”. The restrictions Aïvanhov had in mind are the boundaries erected by the ego-personality, which make it virtually impossible for the ordinary person to see things as they really are and to think, feel, and act in consonance with Reality” (Georg Feuerstein - “The Mystery of Light” Passage Press).

When Aïvanhov returned to Europe he was a changed man. He was no longer Brother Michael, but Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov. His appearance had changed to an archetypical prophet, strikingly resembling his own teacher (Peter Deunov) nearly to seal the deep continuity of the Teaching.

But the fraternal aptitude of Michael did never change. It asserted, in fact:" nobody sacred text says:" Be ye perfect like Guatama Buddha or Moses or Jesus Christ, or Zarathustra or Mohammad ... Not, all says :"Be ye perfect, even as your Father Who is in Heaven is perfect"... the Master elevate the conscience of the disciples, not them firm to its person but it raises until God... "(What is a spiritual Master?).

In fact Aïvanhov invites every disciple to find again just the inner Master or one larger: Melchizedec, the Master of all the Masters and the Sun not evidently like physical body but like symbol, spiritual door of the Solar Christ (The Splendours of Tipharet - Surya-yoga or yoga of the sun )

AAïvanhov back in India in 1982 and specifically in New Delhi for a stay of two months. Meet a famous master in this circumstance madrassas Baba (Album de photos - p.123) who calls him "Rishi solar. He is then recognized the symbol of Brahma Rishi, to confirm the revelations of Nityananda (1959) and is read to the prophetic words of the Puranas about the coming era of the Kali Yuga (the present age) of a Rishi, the solar whose name would begin with the letter M and the second with the letter A and during a stay in the country would receive the name of the Devas of Omraam.

In the course of his life, the Master has lived in the fraternal centers from which he was constituted and has untiringly travelled in several places of the earth with the precise scope to continue his job and the widen of the field of application (Lejbowicz)

With his exemplary life to the service of a high ideal, it has always encouraged milliard of persons to undertake and to continue the way of spiritual improvement.

To read the "Message to the materialists. This message of Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, has been recorded in french on august 1953 ( prosveta)

"Nothing is more difficult than to put the spirit where it rightfully belongs in our lives: in first place. In fact, except in the case of a few great saints or mystics, the attempt to do so has usually ended in failure, discouragement and even mental breakdown. In his role as a spiritual teacher, Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov takes care not to provoke any such rupture with the realities of life by showing us how everyday actions and events can be the foundation of a genuine spirituality. « Get accustomed to consider your daily life with the acts which you are obliged to carry out, the events which happen, the beings with which you have to live or which you meet, as a material on which you have to work to transform it. Do not content with accepting what you receive, to undergo what arrives at you, do not remain passive, but always think of adding an element susceptible to stimulate, to animate, to spiritualize this material. Because it is really this, which it true spiritual life: to be capable of introducing into each of your activities a ferment susceptible to throw this activity on a superior plan. You will say: "And meditation... and prayer...? " Well, exactly, prayer and meditation serve you for getting this more subtle, purer element, which allows you to give to your acts a new dimension. » (Golden Rules for Everyday Life)

In the day of Been born them of 1986 it leaves its body serenely, therefore as it had lived and in the last message invites its disciples to living in the divine ideals and to diffuse the Instruction of initiatic science (Feurstein). For the disciples of Aïvanhov, year 1986 extraordinary experience is not the end of one but the result and the beginning of new an extraordinary job.

Frenette Louise-Marie, Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov -

(info www.

This book describes the deeply moving itinerary of an exceptional human being, Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov. A man who offered simple but infinitely effective methods to deal with most difficulties of everyday life. His methods respond to our own deep-felt need to love better, to know more, to live healthy lives as members of that great human family which he wanted truly fraternal.

It is this, no doubt, that explains the recognition he has gained throughout the world. Every year, hundreds of thousands of readers from every cultural background – agnostic, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish, oriental – discover his published talks.

Seven years of research among friends of Mikhaël’s youth in Bulgaria and his mature years in France, as well as the study of several thousand documents in the archives of his talks, enables Louise-Marie Frenette to reveal to us this man’s extraordinary power to endow the word ‘life’ with a transcendent sense of immediacy and radiant joy.

The author, a novelist and essayist, has given us an exceptional biography, the most accomplished and most fully documented work about Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov.

When we reached the last page of this book we were so sad! We didn't want it to end! We so much enjoyed reading about this 100% loving, wise man, who devoted his whole life to the divine, and was so full of courage and determination to share his light with as many human beings as possible, whatever the obstacles. The Cygnus Review

This book is the bearer of great hope, and great power. It inspires in readers a desire to surpass themselves and shows them that all is possible. Pierre Lassalle, Terra Lucida

The Master Aïvanhov, endowed as he was with exceptional charisma and remarkable gifts as an educator, is certainly the most distinguished representative of Solar spirituality of the 20th century. Revue Solaria

Attentive to the events around him, he explains to young people how to transform themselves before attempting to transform a society that deceives them. He did not forget his own youth filled with overflowing energies and passionate research. As Peter Deunov told him one day, he is the greatest demolisher of old ideas but at the same time, he recognizes the importance of orienting the youth energy toward life and not toward violence and death. One day, he made a comment regarding some liberation movements organised in the United States such as the Hippies - who had chosen for symbol a gesture of peace and love – he stated that they had intuitively sought universal brotherhood and that they were manifestations of the Aquarian Age.

However, if he understands youth, he does not make life any easier for them. Rather, he gives them the means to channel their energies and to manifest their aspirations. Aware of their profound dissatisfaction, he brings them to recognize that the true strength is within themselves, in their capacity to control themselves, to show how noble and great they can be. He encourages them to adapt to the rules of society so they become capable of transforming it from within; he always tells them about the immutable laws that exist between cause and effect.

With images, he explains the moral cosmic laws: first, the law of recording which enables nature to keep in memory everything that happens in the world; second, the law of agriculture which defines the results of the work of human beings as they can only reap what they sow; and finally the law of echo which sends them back the words they speak: ‘I hate you’ or ‘I love you”. The same correspondences repeat themselves on a higher level; the negative thoughts that people hold bring unto them toxic things that end up poisoning them. Just as everything is being recorded in nature, their actions are impregnated on their own memory and keep influencing them, torturing them or giving them joy. This is why it is so important for human beings to adopt behaviour capable of creating in them new recordings, new imprints.”
