Regular readers of this blog will want to check out this piece that I wrote for Return of Kings about Julius Evola on the Occult War.
Evola was a twentieth century Italian philosopher who wrote on Tradition. He was raised in a very strict Catholic home, but he abandoned the faith of his childhood. He was attracted to Buddhism and paganism, but he had the good sense to realize that paganism is a completely dead tradition in the West. Therefore, he rejected the concept of “neopaganism” out of hand.
Sadly, I think that his bias against Christianity limited his thinking. He acknowledged the need for spirituality, but he didn’t offer anything tangible apart from a single-minded focus on the reactionary ideal. I regard this as a great loss to Christianity and Western civilization. I can’t help but wonder what his contribution would have been if he had remained in the fold.
Be that as it may, his assessment of the techniques that have been used, and continue to be used, to push left wing ideas is accurate. By understanding the strategies, we’ll be better able to spot and resist them.

You can’t convert to Hinduism. You have to be born into it. The best you can do is live its principles, but a tradition that you can’t actually be an initiate of, is not much of a help.
Any way, I do not believe Evola embraced Hinduism. He seemed to be more interested in Buddhism.

I don’t know who told you you can’t take take diksha into a Hindu sampradaya but whoever it was, they lied to you, either purposely or out of ignorance. I am an initiate in an authentic Shaiva Siddhanta lineage myself.
