Dragons are mythological creatures, both good and evil. Colossal beasts, they are symbols of immense power.
Western symbolism emphasizes the negative side of their power and energy; the dragon-foe became synonymous with Satan and has come to symbolize evil. In western literature dragons symbolize intense passion and represent the battle knights must fight against immorality.
Oriental mythology represents the dragon as a positive force, representing power, strength, and good luck. Dragons are revered beings in China and, although fierce, are rarely mean-spirited. Usually long and serpentine, with four legs, Chinese dragons have attributes of other animals: some have horse-like heads, some stags horns, some soles of tigers. Four-toed dragons are associated with the four elements of antiquity (earth, fire, air, water); five-toed dragons are symbols of Chinese emperors.
But there are also plentiful of secret cabals that have claimed the dragon affiliation;
The Chinese triads are also commonly referred to as the dragon syndicates and their leader is called The Dragon Master or Dragon Head.
The Dragon Society or Society of Dragons is a secret society of senior men at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, United States. The group’s membership and organizational structure are unknown, with notable exceptions. Dragon has been in continuous operation since its founding in 1898.
Last but not least, the Green Dragon is rumored to be a mystical Tibetan or Japanese occult Order, mentioned since the beginning of 20th century and popularized through the book The Morning of the Magicians. It is claimed that the Order collaborated with Theosophical Society and Thule Society. Influenced the well-known secular figures in Europe, traveled to the East – to Tibet and Japan. It is claimed that during the capture of Berlin in World War II, some Nazis were discovered in a Tibetan (or Kalmyk) appearance.
In the Maharajagar, a portmanteau by combing the Hindu words Mahaan (Great), Hara (Green) and Ajagar (Dragon), it is both. It is a secret protagonist who’s manipulative strings run through the whole tale, while it is at the same time an avatar of the combined knowledge and power of some of the other main protagonists. It’s an embodiment of the exercise of power through the possession of knowledge not available to others.
A preview of the the first part The Beginning (The Maharajagar Book: 1) is available as a standalone while the second installment of the Maharajagar, called The Assembly Hall was released on October 26, 2018. The third part, called The Forest has recently been released (March 31, 2020).

A great post, and sad how cabals, criminals and corrupt shadowy groups have stolen the image and meaning of the great legendary beast that should resemble far more positive orders and cultures. I feel the power of the beast is the power of positivity and kindness, the fire it breathes is that of passion and its flight represents the ability to fly free and soar high when understanding and existentialist belief has been discovered in oneself. The corruption of the dragon figure is a sad and painful sight.
