About El Morya

An Ascended Master Who Embodies the Will of God

The name “El Morya” may be unfamiliar to some. But it is more than likely that millions have heard about one or more of his past lives. Because of his tenacious love of the will of God lifetime after lifetime, El Morya has come to embody the quality of obedience to holy will. Today he serves from heavenly realms as the Chohan1 of The First Ray2, the blue ray of God's will, faith, protection and power.

Obedience Brings Blessing

Abraham. His story is told in the first book of the Old Testament. Both Jewish and Christian children alike have heard the tale of God’s call to his obedient son. “Get thee out of thy country…and from thy father’s house unto a land I will show thee.”3 God promised Abraham that his obedience would lead to blessing. He would be the progenitor of a great nation. Abraham left the house of his father. And God did bless him. Called the Father of Nations, Abraham, even in his advanced age, was sired a son, Isaac. From this lineage the Twelve Tribes of Israel emerged. El Morya was Abraham.

Camelot—a Vision of a Golden Age

In the fifth century, a ruler of mythical proportion enters life’s stage. Arthur was the creator of the Table Round, a culture of brotherhood whose rallying cry was, “All for one and one for all!” His holy knights were reputed for their bravery in battle and service to their monarch and his kingdom. No myth, this noble soul forged a glorious society where respect, justice, courage and truth prevailed—the mystical Camelot. El Morya was King Arthur.

The Price of a Principled Life—Thomas Becket and Thomas More

Twelfth century England finds the soul of El Morya incarnated as Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, defender of the church and at odds with King Henry II. Conflict regarding the influence of the church in the political affairs of the realm rise to a fever pitch. And Becket pays for his stand with his very life, brutally slain within the environs of his own cathedral by four knights performing the king’s bidding.

Three centuries later, El Morya returns as Thomas More, Chancellor of England, during the reign of Henry VIII. And once again the soul of El Morya finds himself at loggerheads with the king of England. The same conflict of church and state arises, clothed in different circumstances. Separation from his family, years of imprisonment and finally a sentence of death by decapitation bring to a dramatic end in 1535 yet another embodiment of this unflinching soul. Thomas More’s final words to all who witnessed his execution were, “I am the king’s good servant, but God’s first.”

Akbar, Mogul Emperor—An Attempt to Foster Spiritual Brotherhood

A mere seven years later, El Morya returns—this time to embody in the East. He is Akbar, the greatest of the Mogul emperors. A ruler with refined qualities and varied talents, Akbar increased his kingdom through decisive action in battle but also diplomacy. He raised its culture through art, literature and architecture. Interested in all religions and religious practices but not the conflict they aroused, he desired to unify believers into one religion which he called the “Divine Faith.”

Service from the Heavenly Realms

In the nineteenth century, El Morya, while residing in the spirit plane, collaborated with two other unascended masters4Djwal Kul5 and Kuthumi6—to work through Madame Helena Blavatsky7 and others in order to teach occult mysteries to a larger body of mankind. The founding of The Theosophical Society8 by Blavatsky in 1875 would be a major vehicle for this purpose.

Lifetime after lifetime, love for the will of God was the driving force of El Morya’s soul, even to the laying down of his physical life as Becket and More. The striving of this “Man for All Seasons” won him his ascension9 in 1898.

Today, El Morya is the chief of the Darjeeling Council, a heavenly governing body who serves in an etheric retreat over Darjeeling, India. He works with many other ascended masters—Chananda, Kuthumi, Saint Germain, Jesus, Mother Mary, to name some—for the upliftment of mankind and an instilling within their hearts of a similar love for the will of God.

El Morya Teaches Us the Way to Know Life’s Purpose

In a HeartStream10 from June 13th, 2008, El Morya said, “Many desire to know their life's purpose. Few desire to know that purpose within the context of the will of God. And fewer still are able to let go of the human will fully to be absorbed into the heart of God's will through the sacred science and art of surrender. Those who meditate on God's love, wisdom and will within, day and night. create a sacred portal for their life's purpose to be fully outpictured."
Read now the words of this beloved master as he expounds on such topics as the nature of God, the Buddha, heartstreaming, the purpose of the rosary and the meaning of darshan.
1. “Chohan” is a Sanskrit word for “chief” or “lord.” A chohan is the spiritual leader of great attainment who works with mankind from the ascended state. There are seven chohans for the earth—El Morya, Lanto, Paul the Venetian, Serapis Bey, Nada and Saint Germain.
2. The first ray is the ray of God’s will. The ascended masters teach that the seven rainbow rays are the seven qualities of God that compose the color rings or spheres which surround the Solar Presence. The attribute of each color, or ray, is vital to our wholeness. The seven rays are God-qualities that appear as color vibrations. Each person in embodiment is meant to master these qualities:
    Blue—the first ray: the will of God, faith and power
    Yellow—the second ray: wisdom and understanding
    Pink—the third ray: divine love and compassion
    White—the fourth ray: purity and holiness
    Green—the fifth ray: wholeness and abundance
    Purple/gold—the sixth ray: service to life
    Violet—the seventh ray: forgiveness, mercy and soul-freedom
3. Genesis 12:1-2
4. An unascended master is one who could ascend but has chosen to remain close to the earth in order to assist more directly its evolutions. In the East such a being is termed a bodhisattva.
5. Djwal Kul, also called “Master D.K.” or “The Tibetan,” is known in esoteric circles for his embodiment as a Tibetan master and also as an ascended being who assists planetary evolution. He was introduced to a wider audience through the writings of Madame Helena Blavatsky, co-founder of the Theosophical Society. Messenger of the Great White Brotherhood, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, revealed that Djwal Kul had been embodied as one of the three wisemen, Caspar. Through The Summit Lighthouse and The Hearts Center, Djwal Kul has taught the importance of the holy breath and forms of breathing that promote spiritual and physical well-being and progress.  To hear the entirety of Djwal Kul’s message on union with the God within, click Djwal Kul, February 18, 2008.
6. Kuthumi, an ascended master serving on the yellow ray of illumination was embodied as Saint Francis of Assissi. Master psychologist, his assistance may be invoked as we work on subconscious as well as conscious patterns of behavior that limit our ability to outpicture our true nature of compassion for all life.  He serves now as World Teacher with Jesus.
7.  Madame Helena Petrova Blavatsky (1831-1891), born into Russian aristocracy, was an occultist possessing from early childhood psychic abililties. During one of her sojourns in Tibet, she was commissioned by certain masters to share occult knowledge with a larger body of students East and West. 
8. The Theosophical Society was established in 1875 in New York City by Madame Blavatsky with the assistance of Col. Henry Steel Olcott (1832-1907) and William Q. Judge (1851-1896) for the purpose of compiling and teaching the occult sciences. The name of the society is derived from “theosophy,” a Neoplatonic term meaning "Divine Wisdom." The Theosophical Society currently has its international headquarters at Adyar, Madras, India. The Theosophical Society of America has its headquarters in Wheaton, Illinois and its British affiliate in London.
9. The ascension is complete liberation from the rounds of karma and rebirth. In the ascension process the soul becomes merged with her Solar Presence, experiencing freedom from the gravitational, or karmic, pull of the earth and entering the bliss of beingness within God’s eternal presence of divine love.
10. HeartStreams are up-to-the-minute messages from the ascended masters through their anointed messengers in The Hearts Center movement. These messages vibrate with the masters’ love and wisdom and anchor light in the earth as they are being delivered and when they are replayed in audio or video format. They teach, exhort, bless, uplift and direct us in specific actions needed to assist not only ourselves but our planet.

Beloved El Morya Darshan
David Christopher Lewis

Light Is the Alchemical Key

Embrace and Assimilate the Teachings

El Morya: Would you be masters of the will of God, I ask. [Yes!] Why? [Various responses.] What does it take to move from being a disciple to a master?

David repeats audience responses: Commitment. Focus. Self-mastery. Perseverance. Alignment. Constant attunement. Acceptance. Surrender. Determination.

El Morya: Blessed ones, the teaching on compassionate communication has given you a key to self-observe your thought processes so that before you speak you may mindfully enter into an awareness of how all that you say through your throat chakra affects life. Speech is a gift of God. Your voice is a gift from God. And yet many of you glibly release energy without mindfulness, speaking before you think, releasing what is in your human mind before you have had time to fully embrace and understand how the words that you speak affect all life upon Earth.
            To be a master you must understand the causative nature of light-energy and the field that surrounds you and its impact on the world scene. Many of you who are very glib and who almost mindlessly speak have not the mastery of the emotional body, which is in polarity to your throat. And thus, look within yourself to understand how, when you master your emotions through this polarity, you can begin to master your speech.
            Those who mindfully wait and observe, analyzing from the perspective of their Christ consciousness the effects of what their words will be upon others, are more guarded in their speech patterns. Thus, they create less karma and they may move more swiftly into the masterful relationship with us as solar beings that is required for those who desire greater impact for this Earth and for other solar worlds.
            I challenge you to go for a day without speaking—soon. During this time, observe your mind and your thoughts. Reflect on how the mental mind wanders and is very busy in its meandering and yet does not have the God-mastery that a master would have through the steely radiance of a mind set on principles of light and of being the instrument for that will of God to manifest. It is easy to proclaim your knowledge of what the will of God is and of how to be a master. It is another thing to enter into the stillness of presence and then, from that point of cosmic reference, fully master your mind, your emotions, your being.
            Many of you have a great understanding of the teachings of the ascended masters as given through various dispensations. And yet, have you fully embraced, taken to heart, assimilated, and through gnosis realized what these teachings truly are within you? This is the point of divergence between those who simply follow as students and disciples and those who would move into a new stream of God-masterfulness and presence.
            You say the will of God is good. Yet have you meditated on the supernal goodness of God's radiance pouring through you, moment by moment, and on how that is outpictured in your life as the will to be a God-free being?
            You say you know that another aspect of the blue ray is protection and perfection. Yet have you truly realized, through your own Buddha nature, what this truly is and the relationship between you and your Source and all life? The masterful ones are those who meditate upon God day and night and through mindfulness move into the stream of pure being; and thus every emanation from them comes from the point of purity and Self-realization.
            If you could observe, in our classes in the retreats of the disciples of the Spirit, that those who would be masters move in and embrace their studies and disciplines, then you would begin to have a greater understanding of what it takes to be the master. Our great God-desire in heaven is for many of you to move into the stream of being the master while yet upon Earth—not delaying the process to a future life as an ascended one, but truly bringing to bear in the Earth all that is already available to you within your causal body and within your Solar Presence as light, only light.
            Therefore, before you answer my further questions, meditate for a moment in silence to penetrate to the depths of the understanding of what is the answer from within you, and not simply a reflection of what others have said or taught before that you simply cast about as if it really did not have true meaning within you.

El Morya asks: What is virya? Raise your hand when you are ready to answer, and our representative will give you the microphone—if you dare answer. Those who dare receive extra points in this test.

Response: Virya, to me, is the divine drive.

El Morya: Excellent answer! Next.

Response: Virya, to me, is a cosmic thrust.

El Morya: Well said.

Response: Virya, to me, is the sacred fire that has been held onto and garnered and then released whenever it is needed.

El Morya: Almost there.

Response: Virya, to me, is the pure stream.

El Morya: Of what?

Response: The pure stream of the great I AM.

El Morya: Thank you.

Response: Virya, to me, is verve.

El Morya: Notice the similarity in the words and how the English carries the energy of that word. Even as it was said, could you feel the release of the energy, blessed ones?

Response: Durable, charging spirit.

El Morya: Thank you, my son.

Response: Divine enthusiasm.

El Morya: Excellent. Yet if it is only enthusiasm, is it fully outpictured in its manifestation?

Response: Strength of purpose.

El Morya: Well said.

Response: Spiritual fire coursing through your being.

El Morya: Excellent.

Response: It's that lightning bolt from the mind of God through me.

El Morya: I could feel your understanding as you said those words.
            For each of you, this term has a different angle and understanding of meaning. And for each, your words are valid so long as they are backed by the principle of light and the sure knowledge that what you say is real.

El Morya asks: What is holy purpose?

Response: The desire in God to fully manifest himself within our being.

El Morya: I feel the truth of your reply.

Response: Holy purpose is the pure positioning of us in time and space in order to be whole.

El Morya: I see what you say as a thoughtform energized by your heart.

Response: The plan for what I was to accomplish, envisioned by my Father-Mother God when they created me, and which I embraced and which I am endeavoring to manifest.

El Morya: The crystal of your being clearly says it, my son.

Response: The goals for my ascension.

El Morya: May it be so fulfilled day by day within you.

Response: Action aligned with the Divine.

El Morya: I love this definition!

Response: An idea in the mind of God, conceived in the mind of God, that we manifest by free will.

El Morya: Let that mind be your mind today.

Response: Perpetual transcendence.

El Morya: I see the spiral of what you have envisioned manifesting even in your world as you speak, O transcendent one.

Response: Allowing God's will to flow through me 24/7.

El Morya: As you have proclaimed it, so it is.

Response: To be attuned to Higher Presence and bring down this divine manifestation.

El Morya: “To be attuned to” is not quite the answer I was looking for. That is an aspect of what needs to happen if you are to manifest holy purpose, but the purpose itself is the seed of God-realized being that, when attended to, sprouts and grows.
            Blessed ones, even in this short time together, in your meditation upon the meaning of key words that at times you may have taken for granted in their import within your life, I have worked with your mind to bring it into a greater steely awareness. Retain this sense of presence throughout the day, sustaining it for as long as you can, mindfully, each day of this year. You will see a great increase in your ability to hold light, to be Keepers of the Lightning, to manifest new miracles within your world, to be the instrument for the release of greater sacred fire.
            Yes, I could have dictated to you today more of what we have mused upon. Yet in this exercise, by God's grace you have raised your own consciousness by attuning to that which and who you are as an arbiter of your own destiny within the holy will and thrust of God's light. I AM El Morya. Seek me early. Know me daily. I thank you.
