The Ascended Master Serapis Bey—

Purity and Discipline

Ascended Master of the Ray of Purity

The ascended master Serapis Bey is the Chohan of the Fourth Ray, the white ray of purity. Serapis Bey emphasizes harmony and discipline. Disciples in his retreat are assigned to work on projects with others, teaching them the importance of serving together harmoniously, supporting one another. His many lifetimes exemplify his devotion to purity of motive. Serapis Bey served on Atlantis as a high priest. Before the sinking of Atlantis, he moved the ascension flame to Luxor, Egypt. Serapis Bey and his disciples are fierce and immovable in their dedication to purity and to the disciplines required for the ascension.


The King Leonidas of Sparta—a Lifetime of Unflinching Discipline

King Leonidas is believed to have been born around 540 BC. Although little is known of his early life, the battle of Thermopylae that he waged against the Persians is one of the most famous battles of all time. In August of 480 BC, Leonidas, received a request from the Greeks to stand with them against an invasion by the Persians. Leonidas set out to meet the army of Xerxes, the Persian commander, with three hundred of his personal body guards. An army of 4,000 to 7,000 Greeks joined Leonidas. Together they battled a massive army of Persians estimated to be between 80,000 and 290,000 strong.

On the third day, the Spartans and Greeks were trapped from behind when a traitor led the Persians to a mountain track at the rear of the forces under Leonidas’ command. At that point, Leonidas sent away the Greeks and remained in the pass with only his 300 body guards and 1,600 other Spartans (Helots and Thesbians) who had joined them. The Spartans fought until every man, including Leonidas, had been slain but not until they had killed nearly 20,000 Persian soldiers. The Spartans’ sacrifice gave the Greek naval fleet time to retreat and later defeat the Persians in a battle at sea.

Amenhotep III—Serapis Bey as the Divine Architect

Amenhotep III is believed to have begun his rule at about the age of nine. It is likely that a relative acted as regent for him until he came of age. As an Egyptian Pharaoh, Amenhotep III, and his wife Tiye are known as the founders of monotheism in Egypt, a practice continued and expanded by one of Amenhotep’s sons, Akhenaten, an incarnation of the ascended master Lanello.1

One of Amenhotep III's first decisions upon taking the throne was to open two new limestone quarries. His extensive building projects included the construction of the temples at Luxor on the Nile and a large number of other projects in Nubia. He also initiated comprehensive building projects at the Temple of Karnak.

When Amenhotep III died, Egypt was a strong and powerful country with a great deal of influence in the international world. His son Akhenaten extended Amenhotep’s reformation of the many-faceted Egyptian religion, emphasizing the worship of one God, represented by the sun. Akhenaton reigned from 1417 to 1379 BC.

The Alchemy of Purity—Teachings from Serapis Bey

Serapis Bey’s teachings are often related to self-discipline, purity and the ascension flame. Current teachings released by Serapis Bey through The Hearts Center include the following:

  • On the importance of offering Astreas: Serapis Bey asks his chelas to give 36 rounds of the call to Astrea2 each day to clear North America and the Earth from destructive movies, music and other darkness in culture. These calls will increase the flame of purity and stop potential cataclysm on the planet.  —November 15, 2004


  • On the the ascension: Each student is given a rod of fire to take in their right hand. They are to see the crystal at the top as a diadem of fire through which the seven rays may be focused at any time.

  • On anchoring light in the heart of America: Serapis asks his chelas to accept his currents in the heart of America in order to move into higher realms of consciousness in God’s Presence.  —January 1, 2008



  1. Lanello is the ascended name of Mark L. Prophet, messenger of the Great White Brotherhood from 1958 to 1973, having founded The Summit Lighthouse organization in Washington, D.C. in 1958 as a vehicle for disseminating the teachings of the ascended masters. Mark and his twin flame, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, worked together for the Brotherhood from 1961 to his transition and ascension in 1973, delivering messages from the ascended masters and publishing them as Pearls of Wisdom. They traveled the world introducing tens of thousands to their I AM Presence and the application of the violet flame. They held quarterly conferences and published over seventy books of ascended master teachings.

  2. Astrea is the Elohim of the fourth ray of purity. We call to her daily to encircle and exorcise our beings using her circle of flame and her sword of flame—both blue in color. When we invoke the energy of the circle and sword, we envision the circle moving up and down our forms, cutting away, much like an electric saw, all that hinders us from being free, joyful, loving and productive. We can envision her sword as tall as our forms and standing parallel to our spines. The sword magnetizes all forms of negativity from the body, the emotions, the mind and the memory. This circle and sword action may encompass the smallest electron or encircle our entire planet and beyond. See Prayers and Songs for prayer 10.009, “Circle and Sword of Astrea.”
