Perhaps it’s only me and perhaps it’s past-life impressions, but I hang on every word about Sanat Kumara. And it isn’t a voluntary reaction. It seems choiceless, involuntary. Well, Nancy has determined my weekend reading by issuing the second part of her extracts on the “Ancient of Days.”
(Part 1 is here.)
ASCENDED MASTER SANAT KUMARA – WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR PLANET EARTH
Excerpts from LAW OF LIFE & TEACHINGS BY DIVINE BEINGS
Compiled by Nancy B. Detweiler
Ascended Master Morya – 1956
“For millions of years Sanat Kumara has remained as Lord of the World. Through the powers of Divine Love, He began to stir the soul-light among those still belonging to Earth’s evolution. These individuals were magnetized by His Presence and visited Shamballa often, first in their finer bodies at night and between embodiments and later in their physical vehicles.”
Archangel Michael – 1957
“When Sanat Kumara came to Earth the axis had already bent to about 45 degrees. The nature kingdom gave notice that it would no longer produce for mankind so filled with discord and lack of appreciation of its services and harvests. However, disaster was avoided by the tremendous release of Sanat Kumara’s Divine Love, and the three Kumaras Who came with Him, as well as the loving assistance from those 100 lifestreams who preceded Them and prepared Shamballa.”
Ascended Master Morya – 1953
“Sanat Kumara’s coming brought to the Earth a new hope for redemption, with an assurance from the Cosmic Law that, for an indeterminate time, the life and sustenance of the planet would be provided through His sacrifice and in the hope that Sanat Kumara and His Helpers might evolve a way and means of securing the interest of the souls of men in learning to draw and radiate the Light required to keep the planet in the solar system.
Out of His own life energy, Sanat Kumara pledged the Cosmic Law to radiate the amount of Light required to warrant the investment of the energies of both the Sun and the Directors of the Elemental kingdom in providing a sustained planetary home for the recalcitrant evolution.
A way and means had then to be devised whereby the natural children of Earth and their pledged guardian Spirits might be awakened to their own responsibility in creating an Aura of Light for their planet, which would satisfy the demands of the Cosmic Law and allow Sanat Kumara to return to His own Star Venus, where his beloved Twin Ray, Who had promised to sustain His service during his exile, awaits Him.”
Ascended Master Morya – 1954
“Sanat Kumara has to be released. His work is well done. His Love even the Masters Themselves can scarcely comprehend, and His patience! When He has looked upon the sleeping race, all potential Light bearers choosing to slumber on while He gives of His maximum radiation to keep the Earth which is their home in the system, not for a century or two, but for millions of years. This small, revolving orb is not more than a speck of dust in this galaxy, and its Light, if snuffed out, would scarcely make a flicker in the radiance of the solar system. Yet it is the planetary home of ten billion of lifestreams who could only find mastery if the Earth were sustained as their cradle.
When you each one, have attained the Ascension and stand free in blazing Light, you will stand there only because Sanat Kumara believed enough in your Light and life to do for you what you should have done for yourself for millions of years. If He had not given so selflessly of His Light, the evolution would have passed into the second death and as an individual consciousness you would have been no more. Is not that a debt to be paid best by becoming wherever you are, a focus for the expansion of the Light through every soul you contact?
You are paying for your own life in your service to Him. You are paying for your immortality all down through the aeons of time that have not yet been unfurled when you will have being because of His Love. Every sunrise, the perfume of flowers, the warmth of friends and loved ones, you enjoy because you have life which is the gift of His patience and His service in sustaining your obligations to life.
Lemuria was an age of tremendous illumination and perfection. On Atlantis, thousands of lifestreams were able to emit Light, to precipitate, to levitate. Angels and Masters walked visibly by the side of unascended beings. Sanat Kumara, in hope seeing the close of His exile, thinking of Venus. His heart burning with Love for His Home, the Sacred Fire visible upon the Altars, sickness, death and desolation wiped out; and Sanat Kumara folding His garments about Him ready to let the dust of the Earth fall from His presence – and then – back through the centuries fell the race; back into exile went Sanat Kumara.
What consciousness would stand, at the fall of every Golden Age, before the Karmic Board and say, “I renew My vow, I shall remain, they will yet arise, they will yet emit Light?” The Karmic Board more than once counseled Him to linger no longer, that the mercy of the Law had exhausted itself, that Divine Justice would no longer accept a sacrifice of such tremendous proportions, of Love without parallel. But quietly and firmly He said, “I shall remain.”
Then the Light of Venus dimmed in His eye and the thought of Home receded from His sweet consciousness lest the very pull of that Love would weaken His resolve. I have stood on Venus, by the side of Sanat Kumara’s Beloved, I have seen Her filled with increasing hope as the hour of His exile neared completion. Then, I have seen Her turn and walk back into the City of the Sun, with Her shoulders squared and Her eyes facing the heart of the Presence, another million years doing the work of others. That is Love. That is what fires Me with enthusiasm, with determination to find among the sons and daughters of men some who would love as Venus has. That is the inspiration that brought Me to the side of Saint Germain when He stood among the lack of fulfillment of His last endeavor. That is the fire that took Me into the very Presence of Helios and Vesta Themselves to ask for an opportunity to reach those chelas who had served with Me in many a tight corner through the ages. That is the fire that beat within My heart as I stood before the great Maha Chohan and in the face of His question made Me say, “I believe I can find men and women to hold the bridge, to fan the dying embers of Truth, to stir the souls of men and to set this God Being free.
I am a man of determination and purpose. It is the Will of God that the men and women of Earth give forth the Light to make this star shine.
Sanat Kumara came more than four million years ago, it was said.
The personal sacrifice of beloved Lady Master Venus in releasing Sanat Kumara and assuming the double service, is equally commendable as that of Sanat Kumara, Who came to Earth and remained in hopes of mankind developing to a point of emitting enough Light so that He might return. Thus was Earth enabled to remain in the solar system through the ages.”
Lady Master Venus – 1954
To you who have promised beloved Sanat Kumara the glory and freedom to return to our system and our Star (Venus) I bring the gratitude of One Who has served alone and Who has endeavored to represent to our people the vibratory action of both My Beloved and Myself. It is the request of our people that I bring to you on their behalf, our gratitude for your interest in Earth’s evolution and your service of weaving out of the energies of your own life that Light which pays the ransom for the Earth and allows Him the freedom to ascend upon your Love to His natural estate.”
Ascended Master Saint Germain – 1952
“When the planet Earth reached the point of such density that the Cosmic Law chose to vote it back into nothingness, it was the intercession of Sanat Kumara and the volunteers from Venus who secured the dispensation, allowing more time for the lifestreams belonging to the Earth to fulfill their individual and collective destinies by learning to emit, sustain and expand self-consciously Light, harmony and Love.
To this end, Sanat Kumara formed the nucleus of the Great White Brotherhood, the guardian Band of the human race, and its Members were composed of great Intelligences Who has volunteered to become radiating centers of Light until the Light Presence within each man was awakened and enabled to fulfill its own destiny in this regard.
This Great White Brotherhood held the first Council at Shamballa many hundreds of thousands of years ago. They joined together around a glorious Golden Table, symbolic of the Sun, and each of Them represented a quality of the Godhead. Sanat Kumara, Himself, was the presiding Master, and through Him was formulated the Plan by which mankind of Earth was to be spiritually stimulated, awakened, interested and ultimately enrolled in this Spiritual Order. To each member, He gave certain responsibilities, according to the nature of the individual Being, and these delegated powers became the directing and motivating power of the life Intelligence so blessed. Rhythmically, the Lord of the World called together this Council, and each reported on the expansion of the service in his particular channel. All rejoiced in every development which brought the purpose of the Brotherhood to greater manifestation, but none interfered with the specific services of the other, and all were always under the loving directions of the Lord of the World, Who is the supreme authority for the work of the Brotherhood and all those who choose to abide within its Aura and serve its purpose.”
“It was necessary to devise a way and means of teaching and training the people of Earth how to expand their own sparks of Divinity and become Lords of the Flame, so they could illumine the planet without the assistance of Beings of other planets and stars. By establishing the Spiritual Order of Divine Beings, the Great White Brotherhood, Sanat Kumara and His Council prepared for this. The service of these Beings was to protect, guide, interest and teach the people of Earth, and eventually draw them into the Brotherhood so as to assume responsibilities and positions held by volunteer Beings from other planets and stars.”
Lord Maha Chohan
“The Great White Brotherhood, a united inner group, is made up of intelligent, living Beings Who have made the sacrifice of postponing Their own spiritual evolution to remain in the atmosphere of Earth ministering to a mankind that is not even interested in an endeavor whereby they might attain their own eternal Freedom. These events and places are real.”
Ascended Master Morya – 1954
“The Spiritual Hierarchy, which is made up of Ascended Beings Who have consciously offered to renounce the joy of freedom of service at higher levels in order to help mankind to finish its evolutionary journey, are all specialists along some particular line of spiritual service and endeavor. They are Divine Beings, Who under the training, direction, and guidance of Sanat Kumara chose to forswear Nirvana to help set the Earth and its evolutions free.
Without the Hierarchy the Earth would long since have passed into oblivion, the electrons which compose it returned to the universe, and the souls depending upon it for existence snuffed out like candles before the wind.”
Ascended Master Paul the Venetian – 1954
“Of the Great White Brotherhood the Lord of the World (at this time was Sanat Kumara) is the absolute authority for this Earth. It is composed of God free Beings, Devas, Angels, and all the majestic Beings at inner levels, Who in voluntary relinquishment of God freedom on other planets, and individuals when they attained the Ascension stood before the Karmic Board and offered to remain in exile to serve mankind of Earth, until every consciousness was again awakened to Truth and restored to the God estate.”
Ascended Master Morya – 1956
“The Great White Brotherhood’s purpose and service to the evolutionary scheme is to teach mankind how to create and sustain perfection.”
Maha Chohan – 1952
“The Cosmic Law required that, as soon as possible, a Spiritual Order be evolved from the Earth people, who would be the teachers and guardians of their own people, thus enabling the Cosmic exiles to return to the natural Sphere of their own activity and Light. However, no lifestream who had its inception through the Earth planet seemed to pick up this vibration, but completing its round of evolution and gaining the Ascension without contributing in any manner to the succeeding races.
Sanat Kumara and the beloved Beings on Venus interceded on behalf of the Earth and its evolving mankind, and offered to enter into the orbit of the Earth, its atmosphere, and its people’s karma, with the sole purpose and intent of creating from among the human race itself a governing council and directive body composed of voluntary members of the race who would interest and increase its membership by the exertion of their own initiative. Thus, Sanat Kumara’s first service to life, after His entrance into the Earth’s atmosphere, was to set up a skeleton of this Spiritual Order which is known in the world today as the Great White Brotherhood. There were none of the human race among its members; it was composed entirely of these same guardian Beings, the Archangels and Devic Hosts.
The tremendous impetus of Sanat Kumara’s Love, and the magnetic pull of His Heart Flame were all that He had to work with in stirring the souls of men, and drawing, not by force or argument, but by the invisible and yet resistless power of His Love, the sleeping spiritual senses of some members of the race. It was an entirely impersonal activity in which He engaged for many centuries, and neither He nor those who worked with Him allowed Themselves to designate any particular lifestream as a potential, giving the opportunity to respond, equally to each soul.
The first two souls to so respond were the Beings known as Lord Guatama Buddha and Lord Maitreya. So from this small beginning, The Great White Brotherhood has grown in strength and numbers through the centuries until almost all of the Cosmic guardians and spiritual protectors have had their places taken by the dedicated men and women of the human race.
The Great White Brotherhood works on the same premise and with the same powers of magnetic Love and impersonal benediction, and the response of the spirit and the soul from within itself is the only passport into active membership.
Those who represent the Brotherhood in the world of men may take example from its Cosmic Founder and its Members, and becoming such a magnetic power of Love Divine, they will find drawn to them those whom the Father has called and who will remain, not because of personal allegiance, but because of the affinity of the soul Light with the spiritual essence which is the Brotherhood’s nature in the universe.”
Sanat Kumara’s Release From His Exile
Ascended Master Morya – 1955
“How shall I put into the words the Joyful News that is My pleasure, privilege and honor to impart to you? Sanat Kumara has been released from His exile of the ages!
This decision by the Cosmic Law came as a complete surprise to all but a very few of the Celestial Hierarchy, and it was My sweet privilege and honor to be invited to present the Scroll announcing His Cosmic Freedom to Him as He stood rapt in deep meditation within the Flame upon the Altar. After its reception, He remained for a long while gazing in profound contemplation at the gift of Freedom within His hands, while the expression of joy and gratitude on the faces of the entire multitude, as they were made aware of its contents through My words or presentation, was beautiful to behold.
The Lord (Buddha) Gautama, Who has been preparing Himself through long ages for this hour, now advanced slowly toward the Flame, and Sanat Kumara, from His position within It, removed the Crown from His head and placed it gently upon the head of Lord Gautama, Who knelt to receive it with hands reverently crossed upon His breast in an attitude of humility and grace.
Sanat Kumara then stepped forth from the Flame, and standing by the side of Lord Gautama blessed and thanked the multitude present and all life for His release, and expressed the desire to remain in Shamballa as Regent until the expiration of the time set by the Cosmic Law for His stay on Earth a few years ago. The Lord Gautama will rule as Lord of the World from this night forth.
It was a tremendous and surprising climax to a most eventful evening, and I Am sure that every lifestream in that vast assembly was grateful to God for the privilege of witnessing a Cosmic Event unparalleled in all evolutional history.”
Sanat Kumara’s Return to Venus
Lord Michael – 1956
“After many ages, it is My honor and privilege to re-open My Retreat for the great purpose of forming the platform, forming the impetus and actual momentum of energy upon which the Lord of the World (Sanat Kumara) shall ascend to His Home – Venus. However, Sanat Kumara will remain in the atmosphere of Earth as Regent until the time allotted Him by Cosmic Law expires, with the exceptions of visits to Venus.
At Shamballa are the beautiful Temples representing the seven Rays, the central pool in which play the magnificent Flame fountains, and the beautiful Temple of Sanat Kumara overlooking the whole.
From within this Temple, Sanat Kumara reigned since coming to Earth millions of years ago. Over this Temple has always flown the Banner or Standard of Sanat Kumara, which is the planet Venus surrounded with the laurel wreath on a deep purple field. Tonight, when the Standard is lowered for the first time since His coming, the Standard of Lord Gautama will be raised (it is the planet Earth surrounded with the colors of the Causal Body, on a gold field).
Every Hierarch and every Ascended Being, as well as every Retreat, has a Standard or Flag.
The Beings present at Shamballa are lined up on either side of the central pool almost a hundred deep, each with His flag. Also the walk from the Temple to the end of the Bridge across the sapphire sea is massed with Beings. As Sanat Kumara’s Standard is slowly lowered, all of the Standards are dipped in recognition, love and gratitude for the service it represents. Then, almost with the same action, the gold Standard of Lord Gautama ascends.
Lord Sanat Kumara was in a pure, unadorned white robe with no vestments. Lord Gautama wore the royal purple robe and the Crown and Scepter. Lord Maitreya was at His side also in a royal purple robe of authority, with Miter and Staff.
Lords Sanat Kumara, Gautama, and Maitreya then walked over the Bridge and disappeared in a blaze of Light. The next moment They were standing at the great doors of My Retreat at Banff in the Canadian Rockies.
The final ceremony of the transition of power from Sanat Kumara to Gautama, as well as Sanat Kumara’s departure for Venus takes place at My Retreat. Sanat Kumara addressed the Spiritual Hierarchy and expressed His gratitude for answering His heart call and forming the Great White Brotherhood, in order to forward the Cause of God upon the planet Earth; also for the privilege of serving Earth and being permitted to share in its redemption and victory.
The two great Hierarchs approach each other from either side of the Altar, Their Causal Bodies blazing out like great fans (identical in size) in all the glorious colors of the Rays. Then They approach each other until They meet within the Flame on the Altar where They become One, at which moment there is a tremendous flash of Light, followed by an expansion of the Flame which passes through the entire atmosphere of Earth. At that precise moment, the Causal Body of Sanat Kumara is withdrawn from the body of Earth, while that of Lord Gautama enfolds it in Its embrace. The Causal Body of Sanat Kumara becomes the aureole encompassing Him and His entourage on the journey to Venus. So that it might be said that His return to Venus was accomplished on the energies of the Earth people, the students sang the song to Sanat Kumara.
The transition to His own beloved Star and Those who accompanied Him was accomplished by Sanat Kumara in a beautiful chariot fashioned out of etheric substance by the visualizing process of chelas on the earth plane who were aware that this transition would take place within a specified period of time. The actual journey was accomplished with the speed of light and almost immediately They had arrived within the orbit of Venus. In the meantime, the Lady Venus, with Her retinue, had come out to meet Her Lord. As the two companies approached each other, Sanat Kumara descended from His chariot and, in the simple white robe He had donned when He transferred the robes of State to Lord Gautama, He went forward alone to meet His Queen. The Lady Venus also came forward unaccompanied and as those two Great Beings greeted each other with outstretched hands, the Light of Their Causal Bodies encompassed Them and They were lost to the sight of the watching multitude for a moment.
Then the atmosphere was filled with the music and song of the Angelic Choir and the voices of the people of Venus were heard as they sang the Song of Welcome to their beloved King, the same song they sang as He departed from them so many aeons ago, but now rendered in the joyous tones of happiness.
Sanat Kumara and His beloved Venus now repair to the great Temple where, with all Their people, They give praise and thanks for His joyful and victorious return, and for the successful accomplishment of His mission of Love.
For the present, it has been arranged that the activity of Lord Gautama and Lord Maitreya will be combined, because the service of the Lord of the World is to generate enough Light to keep the planet in the solar system, and Lord Maitreya’s gift is to take the activity of the ceremony wherever possible because Lord Gautama is not inclined that way. It will be a three-fold activity which will be magnificent , Gautama holding the Light, the Peace and the Illumination; Sanat Kumara as Counselor and Regent; and Lord Maitreya as the Head and Heart of the Brotherhood in practically all ceremonial service. Tonight, Gautama has, for the occasion, adorned Himself with the Crown, Cape and Scepter.
Maha Chohan – 1956
“There has been tremendous increase in the vibratory action of the planet Venus since the return of Its Lord within Its Aura. There is also a noticeable advance in the vibration of this planet also since the Lord Gautama’s assumption of the office of Lord of the World. This may be explained by the fact that Lord Gautama’s evolutionary victory was accomplished entirely on this planet, whereas Sanat Kumara was a Lord of the Flame in Its entirety at the time He came to Shamballa to take up His residence there as Lord of the World.
It has not yet been revealed how long the Cosmic Law will accept the sacrifice of Lord Gautama’s willingness to carry the responsibility of holding the Light single-handedly, as it were, for a recalcitrant race of people, the majority of whom are not even award of His existence.”
