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.

Darshan with Beloved El Morya
David C. Lewis

Los Angeles, California

Darshan with El Morya

David: So the question was regarding the Buddhic practice of metta—which is sending loving compassion, kindness out to the world—in relation to decrees. And then also, in this path, what are the masters' recommendations on using both techniques in terms of how much? Is the metta practice as powerful as decrees? That was your first question.
            Well, I'm going to step out of the master's mode and just tell you from my experience in studying Buddhism and understanding Gautama—well, actually, they're telling me I shouldn't make any comments, let them speak about it. Beloved El Morya would like to comment on this one.

El Morya: Beloved ones, you may not become an adept simply by mouthing words. The intent, the focus and the direction of the stream of light flowing through you, whether through the Buddhic practices that were mentioned or through decrees, are the key. What streams through you through a purified consciousness, whether spoken or unspoken, may be effective, and highly effective, based on the amount of fire that you qualify and direct through your practice.
            Therefore one may decree without focus, without intensity and, yes, that practice will not be as effective as one who through deep concentration and a resonance of love projects through his heart or her heart the light in the practice of metta. As you know, the Buddha meditates in silence, sustaining the tie with the threefold flame of every lifewave upon Earth. Is this not an example for you all of the highest spiritual practice? Therefore, many high initiates practice meditation and get the results that are needed to sustain life on Earth.
            Your decrees are an action of the blue ray, as you know, anchoring the light in the physical octave through the power of the Word made flesh. Meditation is more of an action of the golden pink glow-ray, combining the yellow ray of illumination with the pink ray of the compassionate sending of that light. Therefore each is important.
            Our Western chelas should master more of the Eastern techniques, and our Eastern chelas should master more of the Western technique of decreeing for there to be a balanced action throughout the world. Decrees were brought forth in the West because the Western mind typically cannot sustain visualization and meditation due to the lifestyles of those here.
            Many of our chelas have made great progress in using the violet transmuting flame, and many who previously embodied in the East as great meditators were required to embody in the West to clean up the final vestiges of their karma using the technique of the violet flame delivered by Saint Germain through Godfre and Lotus and later through other activities and messengers. Your own Ramakrishna reembodied in the I AM Activity, used the violet flame and did not ascend until after that embodiment. Therefore, one or another is not more important; both should be used appropriately when needed.
           When you see world events that need immediate action, we suggest fiery fiats—short, powerful calls for the masters to intercede in the affairs of men. When you seek greater guidance for your lifestream, this action will not be as effective as deep spiritual meditation, [where you] go within to ascertain with us the answers you need.
        We suggest that our chelas consider combining aspects of metta with the spoken Word such that when you do pray and decree, the primary energy going forth is the action of ruby love as an intense fire, a concentrated light, [which] through a laser action can be more effective; while also, at times, simply sending compassionate love to all of life, especially in times of turmoil and great destruction, as that caused by this recent hurricane, Katrina. For the lifestreams in that area of the Gulf Coast need a great stream of compassionate love, do they not?
           Thank you for this profound question. We honor your own discernment, beloved one.

Question 1: [inaudible]

David: The question was asked, we're seeing greater secularization, fanaticism across the planet. Are the hurricanes, the earthquakes, the fire ring area and the devastation, a result of what's going on in this energy of secularization and fanaticism?

El Morya:  A short answer is yes. Karmic patterns are such that somewhere on the planet there is an intense action of the return of mankind's negative energy through some catastrophic event, whether manmade or outpictured through the elemental forces of nature. This can only be mitigated by enlightenment, right action and a correction in the affairs of men through an understanding of the path, through compassion and through a turning of hearts back to their Source. 
            Through any path of divine reality wherein mankind accept the Godhead, whether it be through a fundamental understanding or through an advanced initiatic science, mankind can mitigate returning karma. In days of old, sackcloth and mourning were the order of the day, although we do not see this as a common practice in your world. Simply by acknowledging the presence of God and the light within the hearts of men and through selfless acts of service, through sacrificial giving, through prayers and personal surrender of the ego, mankind may see a gradual lessening of the intensity of storms, weather patterns of destruction, loss of life. We suggest that mankind become friends with elementals and understand their place in the evolutionary scheme, partnering with them to right what has occurred on this planet through a misunderstanding of the use of energy, resources and mankind's gift of free will.
           Thank you for asking.

Question 2: [inaudible]

David:  A question was talking about in the Bridge to Freedom, when it's talked about how mankind has kind of lagged behind and the violet flame was brought forth in order to accelerate things and kind of move us forward. How do the masters see our progress, and are they happy with the state of affairs now? Is that the basic gist of what you're saying? OK.

El Morya:  No, we are not pleased with the current progress of mankind. We will not be sufficiently pleased until the goal is accomplished and Earth becomes Freedom's Star. There is a gradual raising of the consciousness of mankind at many levels, and yet simultaneously there is an increase in fanaticism, terrorism, the fractionalization of communities, the splitting of families and the family culture, the exploitation of America, of a culture that is not wed to our hearts.
            We see great progress at certain levels and an intensity working through certain movements to raise the level of consciousness of the planet. Your own crisis now of the increase in gas prices in the United States and elsewhere is, as we would say, forcing the issue for mankind to realize that new paradigms must be not only accepted but brought to bear in the affairs of mankind through the change and changes that are needed in the structure of the delivery of energy, in the governing of men through your culture, through your legal systems, and especially through the culture of your business. Human pride in progress is a great block to the ongoing work of the Brotherhood, and therefore key individuals at high places are blocking the ongoing march of a divine civilization that we seek to be outpictured in this world.
            Study what we have previously brought forth through our teachings, including the Encyclical on World Good Will [and] Saint Germain's plans, even as Francis Bacon, and discern how through a concerted effort of many lightbearers in a number of movements you can create the culture that we desire.
            When the violet flame is known and used by one million individuals, the entire Earth may be changed, almost in the twinkling of an eye. Therefore, make every effort to share the knowledge and use of the violet transmuting flame with friends, relatives [and] co-workers who may be receptive, beloved ones. This is key to the delivery of this planet into a golden age during the reign of beloved Saint Germain. Every chela and servitor of light worth his salt should consider ramping up the amount of time and energy that he or she could give in invoking this sacred fire and in assisting the Knight Commander in educating not only individuals but groups and communities on its use.
            Call for the Violet Planet to be superimposed over the Earth. For if you could imagine the attendant causal-body momentum of the light released through the evolutions of the Violet Planet working through and around Earth, this could, in and of itself, if visualized and used on a daily basis, cause a tremendous upsurge in the knowledge and use of the violet flame among Earth's evolutions.
           Thank you, beloved one, for asking this important question.

Question 3:  What is suggested for those of us who are desiring to follow The Summit Lighthouse activities and perhaps, as I am becoming more and more thinking that this is real, to also follow your messengership [inaudible]. What do Morya and the masters say about how do we do that?

El Morya: As I delivered through this messenger privately many months ago, those within the Summit who still feel a pull and a tie to remain there due to their friendships and the work that they do at all levels are free to remain where their hearts reside. Although [the masters are] not actively dictating through The Summit Lighthouse activity at this time through a current messenger, many prayers and decrees and services are going forth that are valuable and essential for the sustaining of life as you know it on planet Earth.
            We simply needed a mouthpiece through whom we could convey our current needs and our current instruction to our valuable chelas, beloved ones. Can you imagine being an ascended master and no longer being able to speak heart to heart to your chelas, who love you so much? Can you imagine how we, as your dearest friends, or so we would hope to be, could no longer through an embodied messenger give you up-to-date instruction on how to counteract an incoming hurricane, such as Lanello gave through this messenger recently—visualizing how to call forth the action of the secret rays to wrap themselves around the core of that hurricane, the spiral and the winds, and using the visualization of a fire enfolding itself to consume the winds from without, back to and within the eye? A group of chelas used this visualization in their intense decrees the morning after the message was given, and you saw the diminishing of that storm, which could have caused a much greater loss of life had it entered the shores of the Gulf Coast even fifteen or twenty miles further to the west.
            People will go where they will go based on feeling valued, but also based on habit. When you develop new habits, you may be freed from certain limitations that have occurred in your world. We never demand. We never force. Free will is paramount. We gently coax, although at times I have been considered to be a master who does push the limit somewhat. Have I not been accused of such, beloved? [laughter]
            You know my love for you. I send the ray now into your hearts so you will know the totality of the presence of my diamond heart here and now! My presence, my message, is real, and whether I use this messenger or another, I will continue to speak to my chelas throughout the Earth in one way or another. For no one on Earth should muzzle the mouth of Morya, should he?  [Audience responds: “No.”]
            Beloved David and others who are seeking to understand what is occurring here, we honor you for all you have given throughout this and previous lives through sacrificial giving of your time, your energy, your prayers, your decrees, your meditations; but we need a body of those who will move forward as one holy antahkarana to accelerate the work.
            I suggest you speak to one or another of this group who has been working through this activity for a number of months and receive their personal testimony of how this path has allowed them to accelerate in their own spiritual development beyond where they could be had they stayed where they were before.
            The Buddhic path, as you know, is the path of the mastery of the five secret rays. How many of you have become Christs by mastering the seven rays and are now ready for the initiations that Mother and Lanello have taken of the five secret rays and the path of Buddha? Why, you know that your Lanello is a Buddha, is he not? Well, you also may know that your Mother is also walking the Earth as a Buddha in the Earth.
            Many of our chelas, having attained to the 51 percent mark and having attained their Christhood, needed our guidance to understand and progress through the same initiations of this path of Buddhahood. It was not happening through the current delivery of the messages through The Summit Lighthouse. And yet many were following the messengers outside of the activity through studying Buddhism, through studying this path and inculcating into their spiritual practices this understanding. Why, even our beloved Emily here could offer the fruit of her personal experience, her initiations, her cosmic understanding at deep levels of this path to many of you, even teaching many of you well beyond your current understanding of the initiations, the dharma such that if you applied even the rudimentary basics of this path, you could also become a Buddha.
            Many of our chelas [had] become rote in their spiritual practices and needed, as it were, a kick in the pants to go beyond where they [had] gone. This is what you will find in this activity—not the demand for decrees and attendance at services but simply an understanding of how, through true community of hearts, we may move onward and upward in compassionate communication and love and in building the golden age culture that is truly at the nexus and the heart of the plan of the Knight Commander.
            Be where you will be, and we will honor all that you give from your hearts, beloved ones, no matter where you decide to go. This is our way. And as you may recall, even your own Mark Prophet, when I first contacted him asking him to be a messenger, told me in no uncertain terms he was not ready, and yet later he called to me and I returned.
            Many are not yet accepting of this dispensation because of previous mindsets. But in due time, when they see the fruits and feel the radiation through our hearts, one with yours, they will come around, not by arm twisting but simply by the acceptance of love.
           I thank you, beloved one, for your honesty, your integrity and your willingness to be here to check me out. [laughter]

Questioner 3: Thank you.

Question 4:  Where are the Knights and Ladies of the Flame cosmically and what are they doing?

David: The outer order of the Knights and Ladies of the Flame is simply that, an outer order of those who have made a commitment to Morya, Mother and Mark and Saint Germain. Many serve valiantly at inner levels in this order already. Cosmically, this order is a true order of the Great White Brotherhood upon Earth under the auspices of and the sponsorship of Saint Germain and El Morya.
            The only requirements are allegiance to the three dots and their teacher and the giving of the violet transmuting flame in songs and decrees and prayers for sixty minutes daily. This group has met and will continue to work on developing guidelines in an understanding of this holy order. And you, if you desire, can contribute toward that evolution, beloved heart, as your Mother has done. Does that answer the question?

Questioner 4: Yes.
