He will later call it the Essene Tradition, carried through all ages by the Essene People, also known as the Children of the Light, notably in the Dead Sea scrolls, discovered in Palestine in the middle of the last century.
From the youngest age, Olivier Manitara has mystical experiences and makes discoveries that tightly correspond to those of the great wise men and authentic guides of humanity who gave consistence to the universal Tradition of the Essenes.
From then on, this tradition becomes for him like a loving mother that nourishes his inner life and shows him the way to beauty, to dignity, to audacity and to greatness throughout the lives of the great Masters of the Essene Tradition such as Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Mani…
The young Olivier does not yet realize that he is the only hope for this millennial tradition on the verge of extinction, and rightly so… The last three great representatives of the Essene Tradition: the Masters Rudolf Steiner, Peter Deunov and Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov have been wrongly persecuted and limited to no end in their actions of which the only motivation was their love for humanity and the earth and a determined will to bring back their original dignity. Olivier Manitara would be no exception to the rule and will have to confront some very hard initiations, and will vanquish them all, like all the Fathers and Mothers of the Essene Tradition had to do before him. In this fashion, he climbs all the initiatic steps toward divine mastery and becomes, in time, a Father of the Essene Tradition, a genuine Master, a guide and a benefactor for mankind.
Recognized as such by the keepers of his tradition among many cultures, in 2007 he becomes the founding Father of the Essene Nation and the world representative of the Essene People. In the year 2000, he brings a considerable contribution to the reconciliation of cultures and interreligious dialog by creating the pictorial series of Men-Gods. Throughout this universal work, all the cultural traditions are honoured and reunified to their original source. This is one of the most important humanitarian works, at a time when some intelligence would want to standardize everything and take mankind away from its true roots and profound values.
In 2006, through his alliance with the four Archangels who created the universe and inspired the creation of the greatest human civilizations, Olivier Manitara creates the Circle of the Archangels. This is the birth of a new way of being in the world, a new art of living in harmony with nature, the universe and the divine world through a universal practice, and knowledge, that completely revolutionize contemporary religion and spirituality.
This Circle of the Archangels is giving birth to a new Gospel: "the Essene Gospel of the Archangels". This Gospel marks a decisive and irreversible pivot in the Essene Tradition and the start of a new era for mankind and the world as a whole.
A foreground cultural creative, active messenger of the Proclamation for Peace recognized by UNESCO, Olivier Manitara is also a unique artist. He is the author and writer of hundreds of songs, melodies and sacred dances… Those are true masterpieces that compose links in the chain of works of the great souls who allied themselves to a divine world out of pure love for mankind and the earth; to bring there the harmony of the cosmos and balance the disharmony in which mankind is immerged. Thus, this sublime work represents a large contribution to the world heritage of Wisdom and a precious legacy for the future generations and all the world traditions.
In 2002, he creates the Energy Mandalas. This is the emergence of a new Feng Shui, totally revolutionary and perfectly adapted to our time and the occidental civilization. This new occidental Feng Shui is to be found in full achievement in the Essene Villages, true sanctuaries for Mother Earth where all the kingdoms of nature are respected and honoured for what they are: friends of mankind on the path to the evolution of consciousness and the ennoblement of the soul.
The Essene Villages, a foreground humanitarian and ecological work were also inspired by Olivier Manitara to become havens of peace and harmony in the heart of the growing and invading desert of the modern world. The Essene Villages compose the indispensable and pacific countervailing power, preserving the opportunity, that is getting ever rarer, to be able to live another life in conformation to most profound aspirations of the human being.
Thus, since the creation of the Essene Nation, Olivier Manitara travels the world to bring the good news about the possibility of another life to all those who still have the courage to get up and unite in mutual support to give birth to another future for mankind and the earth. Not only does he talk about it by transmitting the wisdom and the precious know-how of the Essene… Everywhere he goes, he concretely works to build another future by creating Essene Villages.
All around the colossal works of Olivier Manitara (author of 40 books and 150 formative works, and more than 1000 improvised conferences about the most varied subjects, reaching through all the areas around the life of mankind and that of the earth with a totally innovating point of view but still based on millennial wisdom), was created the Essenia Foundation in Canada that works for the diffusion and safekeeping of the Essene Wisdom all around the world. Recognized as a charitable organization by the Canadian government, the Essenia Foundation is a profoundly humanitarian and ecological work by its implementation of the Essene Wisdom and its concretization through the Essene Villages.
