The Rakoczy Mansion is a focus of freedom in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania, now a part of Romania. Resembling a medieval castle surrounded by woods, this physical focus remains hidden from the eyes of the world.
Saint Germain came here before the sinking of Atlantis, carrying the freedom flame under the direct guidance of the Great Divine Director. Saint Germain reembodied here in later centuries, and under the guidance of his guru, rediscovered the flame that he had planted, and then built the Rakoczy Mansion. Here he entertained the heads of state of the European nations, taught the science of alchemy, attempted to unite Europe and expand the freedom flame in the hearts of the people.
The flame room in the center of the mansion seats approximately one hundred persons. It is a rectangular room having entrances at either end, the altar being on the long side of the room with a platform and podium for the officiating hierarch, and the freedom flame in shades of violet blazing on the altar behind the speaker. The physical focus is today for the most part inactive, yet the flame continues to blaze there upon the altar.
Temple of the Maltese Cross
Saint Germain has transported archives, paintings and collections from this retreat to his focus in the Cave of Symbols. However, just over the House of Rakoczy in the etheric realms, he has recently built an etheric temple in the shape of a Maltese cross. This is a permanent focus of the flame of freedom on behalf of the millions of lifestreams who yearn to drink deeply of the draught of freedom and to taste the elixir of immortal life that has become a legend as the famed fountain of eternal youth, which was sought after by Ponce de Leon and the explorers who came to the New World.
Activities of the retreat
The Great Divine Director has described some of the activities of this retreat:
I am the founder of the House of Rakoczy. And in our mansion in Transylvania, where there has been established on the etheric plane a sacred Temple of the Maltese Cross, there are enshrined records of past civilizations of glory and blueprints for a golden age to come. Some of you have journeyed to that retreat in past embodiments when Saint Germain acted as host, and you came in physical bodies to be entertained there by the Wonderman of Europe, my disciple and your Knight Commander.
The keynote of the retreat is “Tales from the Vienna Woods.”
