INTRODUCTION TO FORTHCOMIG DISCOURSES ON SKANDA,BALAJI ANDUNIVERSAL ONENESS



INTRODUCTION TO FORTHCOMING DISCOURSES ON SKANDA, BALAJI AND UNIVERSAL ONENESS
(Compilation for a Discourse by N.R. Srinivasan, Nashville, TN, USA, November 2016)
I analyzed four of my following appreciations which I do not generally  circulate    because I believe in serving and not running a popularity contest with Gurus, Sadhus,  Swamijis  and Anandas but just a Vitaranananda (distributing  agent) assimilating and dissimilating what I think is logical with my  scientist instinct! These have a great impact on Hindu American life.
“When we do things for their own sake and out of our love and commitment to the cause, without expectation of any return or reaction, we shall be at peace within ourselves and with the rest of the world. You are highly evolved spiritually and my words will be like carrying coal to Newcastle”.
--Voice from India
You are amazing and we're ever so grateful for your leadership and wisdom and contributions.  We'll stay closely connected;    We'll stay closely connected”.
--Interfaith Vice President
"Narration of your own life experience and the three tips ...."Satsang, Satkarya and Swadhyaya" are the three important steps in justifying for our human birth. It has been my good fortune to know you as   you are an inspiration for many of us in the community. We thank you for the service you are rendering to the Indian Community. God bless you”--A local doctor

Your discourse on consolidation of Hindu deities and conclusion to   focus on Sanatana as Skanda suitable to all religions of the world deserves three PhD.
--A religiously inclined Physics Professor

I have had the good fortune of living and spending considerable time amongst various cultures   and followers of major religions of the World, for some years as UNIDO Expert,   in my latter years of 20 years of service and earlier   in India itself.  I spent   45 years in service working with labor force drawn from many religions, beliefs and faiths. I had always a close relationship with people I came in contact. Coming from a very conservative Sri Vaishnava Philosophy I started believing   that there is no place on earth without Vishnu’s influence.  To me Brahma was  my  past responsible for my appearance on Earth and Rudra   was my future to judge my performance on Earth in a place unknown to me to take a decision either to  hand over   me  to Brahma again to find a suitable home or push me higher up never to return.  So religion of mine today may not be the religion of my future life. Many of you may not agree with me nor I would like to change your mind for I do not believe in proselytization nor I believe God is a dictator. I do not say I was an Angel but lived comfortably studying their culture, blending with their culture and observing their faiths and beliefs sometimes joining too!  This influences me to take a  balanced views and look for areas of co-ordination and fusion. Such a view takes you out of religion and approaches human values which we call simply Dharma or specifically Manava Dharma.
I lived in India amongst multi religions, practicing my own religion at home and forgot religion   when I stepped out of house until the religion was dragged to the streets by what is known as Periyar Movement which turned into moderate Anna movement later. I succeeded in getting out of the web and safely landed in a country where there is complete separation of state from religion if not God to be on your own!   Even in India which is a secular state there is indirect control by Hindu Religious Endowment Boards.  Living amidst multi-religious groups peacefully enjoying life and progress in life is a cake walk in USA.
One comment above is from India from traditional orthodox Hindu Vaishanvite with open mind. The second one is a Malaysian Hindu migrant, born to   religious family in Kerala, settled in Malaysia, born in Malaysia, married to Christian American, brought up by Saivite parents, now trying to build a   Vishnu temple for Venkateshwara in  of the shores of USA.  Both husband and wife are devoted to interfaith and serve for the cause.     The third is a Jain that sprang from Sanatana Dharma who has no animosity towards Hinduism who attends every festival and ritual held in a Hindu temple   and seriously goes through every E-mail of mine.  The fourth one is a staunch Saivite American Hindu scientist who is averse to the    diversification of Hindu American Tradition that wants to  pack as many deities as possible including religions grown out of it  in a temple losing focus on  worship and the reforms that are taking place in India towards consolidation  and worship on false deities with wrong interpretation of Puranas.
Interracial marriages attracted to each other by the universal binding force of love is steadily increasing.  In majority of these marriages one partner is from Hinduism and other from Christianity and occasionally Islam and Hindu.   Marriages where one partner is Hindu and other is a Jain, Sikh, Buddhist bound by common Indian culture does not bring complications into the life of children.  Even in India it is quite common among Punjabis to have a two-way flow and interaction between Hinduism and Sikhism enjoying religious freedom without disturbing the faith they come from. In such interracial marriages if one of the partner is religiously brought up as a Hindu he or she is able to bring up the child with Hindu faith and culture. This seems to be more common than the other-way round. There are other complications each partner keeping to their faiths that confuses children.  Some finding no right solution say they are spiritual and not religious not knowing what that spirituality is. Some openly declare they are atheists with total indifference to religion which number is alarmingly increasing.
I  have come across a  versatile  scholarly  American Hindu  priest and astrologer    who built a temple     and  runs it as a  personal  venture  and owns a private plane  too  which may not be wrong to call  religious business  that could be  an example  of  an American  idol     that  there is nothing like success.  
There is a mistaken comparison of equating Hindu priests with Pastor or Father or Nun of Christianity. Hindu temple Priests are   salaried persons. They are not to be confused with Swamis (all renouncing Sanyasins) who do not work for money but do not refuse any small “yatkinchit dakshina” (gratis) to   run their bare minimum of life and not the entire family. But people pay respect due to an elderly and learned Pundit however young he may be.  They are family men adepts in ritualistic worship.  I have not come across a female priest in Hinduism and there may not be one. Pope in Rome also is against Woman-priests.   The priests as we have to-day in Hindu American Temples can’t be our guides to run festivals and rituals who are trained in the process for the Sectarian classified deity or Devata. All our festivals and rituals in One temple for Many traditions should be broad based and meaningful ably supported by scriptural   and purnaic support. The inspiration and guidance should come from Sanyasi or religious head prescribing   the mode of worship appropriate taking care of the society it lives and come to One Temple for Many Traditions on any Special Event   Hindu Americans are confused and go by the advice of imported sectarian priests who are career oriented, who are not focused  to raise their kids religiously and try hard to   bring them up focused on more lucrative jobs   of technology and medicine. When one is   focused on the family he can’t be focused on religion and spirituality!  My father was a village school master and priest too where I attended primary school living in the temple house within the temple and I know how hard it is to focus on religion all the time and guide the community too. He temple in the village where  lived may be described as a worship room in a house that took care of the entire religious needs of the village community.  Hindu priests are expert scholarly religious guides but not Gurus who can lead us religiously or spiritually.  They believe in “please repeat after me” and religious disciplinarians like our fathers who disciplines us!" I know a  very scholarly   Hindu American expert priest and astrologer who solemnized wedding of my   son  now   owns a temple, travels in his own plane  and I  may  not be wrong  if I say that he has his own religious promotion business,  ideal “American Idol” Hindu priest.   
I wonder whether  these complex Hindu-Christian-Islam American families  are living in perfect harmony and peace  with focus on spirituality with some religion or not. If there is a need for religion Hinduism with its base Sanatana dharma with its principle Eko viprah bahuda vadanti- the one scholars call many ;  tadekam,  That  One and sarve janah sukhino bhavant—May all be  happy, has a nice and sound start.  I am amazed how the American couple with Hindu Siva Tradition childhood influence whose father still influences her religious views has picked up Venkateswara as her mentor to build a temple off shores! Only recently she knew that Venateswara is Skanda(Murukan) who is Sanatana in all ancient Esoteric Traditions of the  World. May be this is another recent magic spell of Enigmatic Jagannatha-Balaji the ruler of the World! But what happens if harmony is lost in such families?  We have seen how the   Weiner–Huma Abedin marriage break and disharmony has shook the Nation! These couples life of    struggle to succeed will have lot of impact on the society.  You can thus see a kind of –ism which may be called Hindu   Confusion-ism  emerging  in America but not the Hinduism we practice that we say comes from Vedic Religion which Vivekanada prophesied as The Religion of the Future In Chicago more than 100 years back! In this background we will be wiser to revert back where we started.  That is why I am planning to focus on   Hinduism of Sanatana Dharma appealing to all as One God in my three draft discourses to your particular attention that will lead us to Universal Oneness and one family.  Here Hindu Americans can largely influence the majority based on East, Middle-East, West and Far East Traditions of Esoteric Sanatana Tradition that was once a Universal binding Force of all Traditions.  Sankara started this cohesion by his Shanmata and Panchayatana Puja which is   Smarta Samprardaya minimizing the complexity.   This first stage fusion has started in my own life and my siblings. I am sure every one of us will have their own personal experience to add to.  I am sure this Hindu American life study would help our philanthropists who render selfless service to community to avoid unimaginable deities in Hindu Temples under the philosophy all donations are accepted and needs to be rewarded. Without an eye on the future to sustain what is established with so much effort will leave behind a sad history like   the fate of European Tradition though they carry all European surnames   and Conquistador in Latin America that destroyed completely Native Traditions though USA itself was established with Natives co-operation or submission   by the Pilgrim fathers who came in search of   land for   free religious practice fed up by State controlled Christianity of England. We happily say God Bless America not knowing who that God is?
I sent the following E-mail to the author of a recent publication on World Religions   drawing his attention that the contents would contribute  a little bit to his Unique book on  World Religions. He thanked me for the Input thus acknowledging my view point. 
SANATANA THE SON OF BRAHMA OR HOLY FATHER WHO IS SKANDA MURUKA , JEHOVAH, AL KADHIR--THAT IS BALAJI OF TIRUPATI
Wisdom comes when we learn to see secular culture for what it is and then rise above it.  Wisdom comes when we confront our egos and wisdom comes when we can surround ourselves with people who have spiritual depth and compassion and not money minded priests and astrologers. If we are unable to do this, the secular culture will eat us alive, keep restless and lonely and leave us devoid of spiritual meaning and fulfillment. For this we have to look back how we were once strong in our spiritual culture and spread the message round the globe that had impact on all faiths and beliefs.  We need to focus on Universal Oneness, fusion not fission, and understand that Truth is One and common for all.  The world is One family—Vasudeka Kutumbakam.  Esoteric Sanat Kumara Tradition that came out of Hinduism had a very strong influence on people but people went out of it for convenience to work as small esoteric groups but always had a focus on Sanat Kumara  tradition but in the process got lost!
During the 15th century the first English version of the Bible was written by William Tyndale Unfortunately he was accused of blasphemy and later burned at the stake! After Tyndale, seven subsequent versions of the Bible were written, the last of which was the most popular King James version, compiled a by a large number of theologians under the leadership of King James of England in 1611.  Under British Rule Church and State were together. Unluckily even the first version had more than three hundred errors in it. The Islamic fundamentalists of those days could not fully grasp those great masters and all of them were put to death.  Origen tried to incorporate much of the beliefs of Greeks and Hindus in the sixth century but they were officially condemned in the Second Council of Constantinople as anathema.   The teachings of Origen on reincarnation were expunged from Church doctrine,   never to return. Gnostics, like Hindus believed   in an impersonal God—a nameless, unknowable being called The “Abyss” or Brahman. Gnosticts also taught that redemption from sin does not involve the death of Jesus Christ. Redemption is simply each person’s effort   to secure   emancipation from the physical body. Gnostics believed in spiritual discovery discussed at length in various Upanishads. Christians by their claim to possess “gnosis” or knowledge (Veda also means) knowledge coming from the Sanskrit word root vid to know) secretly revealed to them by an unknown God. Like us they believed that man is part and parcel of God, a divine spark (mamaivamso jeevabhootah sanatanah) and that achieving true knowledge is the ultimate goal of a human being. So early Christianity could not tolerate all those ideas of the Roman, Greek belief systems, backed by god–inspired scriptures of Hinduism (Puranas) and Christianity respectively. Now with the new IT marvels such authentic materials are lifting up their head. Let us examine some of these in the present context.
Compared to  many religious scriptures  Vedas and Upanishads are kept intact with no major   or  repeated house cleaning  with the original  content in the well-developed  Sanskrit language   unlike the Western Scriptures of ancient scripts and therefore  it is logical  to  take   the  Vedic dictum Vedokhilam Dharmamoolam that Vedas are final authority as  sound   basis. Let me start therefore   start this discourse with a quote from Chhandogya Upanishad.
Sanat Kumara in Islam
Sanat Kumara is referenced in the Koran, in Rumi’s poetry and in other Islamic work as El Khidr. Speaking of El Khdir, the Prophet Mohammed says, “I have seen my Lord in the most beautiful of forms.”
Sanat Kumara in Judaism and Christianity
 Sanat Kumara is the presence of the Flying Eagle, recorded by John and by the Prophet Ezekiel. He is the Presence of the Lamb in the book of Revelation who stands with the 144,000 for the descent of the New Jerusalem.
Since the late 1800s, a number of spiritual movements have mentioned Sanat Kumara in their writings. These include books by HP Blavatsky, the I AM (Jehovah--Aham Bramhasmi--Upanishad Mahavakya) Movement, the Bridge to Freedom, Werner Shroeder,   Lead  Beater and Annie Besant.  
Sanat Kumara is invoked throughout the Old Testament as “The Lord Thy God,” who delivers the Ten Commandments and the Pentateuch (five first books of the Old Testament) to Moses.
And ultimately, when he gives us the first commandment:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
Hindu Scriptures Say:
Venkataadri samam sthaanam  brahmaande  naasti kanchana |
Venkatesa sama devo na bhooto na bhavishyati ||
There is no place equal to Tirupati on Earth (like Vatican to Roman Catholics where the Son of God can be  identified  with Sanat Kumara) and there is no God equal to Venkateswara who was in the past nor will be in the future.
If there be any Paradise on Earth it is Venkatadri Hills. If there be any God on Earth today it is Sanat Kumara or Skanda or Murukan or Kumara known to all religions in the ancient past. This brings forth the prediction of Swami Vivekananda that Vedanta is the Religion of the Future presented to the World Forum in Chicago century back and declared there is but One God.
 “Ekam Avyaktm Anantaroopam”One without a second imperceptible limitless in form (MNU)
Dyaavaaprithivyau Deva Ekah”—The Self-luminous Reality is one without a second and is the creator of Heaven and Earth (MNU)”
 My forthcoming 3 discourses are long and elaborate with lot of references to   various religious scriptures including Upanishads which may perplex you and I am sure this preliminary background will help you to get a grip on the subject and understanding.  My talks are focused on   well- established religious practices of the world by learned religious Pundits for whom I am no match.   My statements can’t be casual coming from an ordinary man who may be questioned “What does he know about Religion and God?” I have not created any phantasy of my own. World Outreach is beyond my capability but I am sure it will open the eyes of Hindu Americans to examine their own current practices and see how we can strive for   One Hindu Temple Tradition for all and show the path to other religions to progress towards One God and One Family based on Ancient Wisdom!
I would like to end this discourse bringing to your kind attention the speech of Jagadguru  Sankaracharya,  HH Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi :

OURS—A UNIVERSAL RELIGION
“We said that the Vedic religion was the earliest religion of mankind. All other religions arose only after it. There are evidences to conclude that it was prevalent all mover the Globe. We shall mention a few of them:
All inscriptions unearthed in Egypt and dated 1280 BC contain terms of treaty between Rameses II and the K Hittites. In this treaty, Maitra-varuna, a Vedic dual deity has been cited as a witness.  (H.R. Hall’s Ancient History of the Near East).  Ancient Egyptians kings bore names like Rames I, Rames II, Rames III etc., resembling the name of Rama who was the Avatar of Vishnu.
In the island of Madagascar off the eastern coast of South Africa, most of the place names have affinities with that of Rama
 In regard to the Sahara desert in North Africa, geologists advance the theory that it is dried-up beds of ocean. Ocean in Sanskrit is Saagara. May it not be that modern name Sahara is corruption of the Sanskrit Sagara. It is also said that when Sahara was under water, there were people all round its shore whose names were mostly Sanskrit. Some of them were said to be related to the Lord Krishna. Some of them were said to be related to the Lords of Kosala. (Encyclopaedia Brittanica).
 In far off Mexico, they celebrate a festival called Rama-Sita, the  time of the festival corresponds to our Dussehra or Navaratri period (The Maya Indians of Southern Yucatan, North and British Honduras—T.W.F Gunn). Excavations made in that country have brought to light a number of Ganesha idols.   The ancient inhabitants of   those parts were Aastikas (Those who believe in Vedas, a term which still lingers in its corruption as Aztecs, as the people there are now called.
In Peru, in Wert South America, the inhabitants were Sun worshippers. Their principal festivals of the year fell on the solstice (Asiatic Researchers). They were known as the Incas from Ina meaning the Sun.
We know the Puranic story of the King Sagara and the sixty-thousand sons who were burnt to ashes by the King Kapila.  The princes dug the earth to go to Paataala Loka in their search for sacrificial horse   which   they found near the sage Kapila who was engaged in penance. As they offended him, he looked at them with angry eyes and they were reduced to ashes. Paataala Loka corresponds to the Antipodes of India, namely America.  Could California there be Kapila Aranya? The probability is strengthened by the fact that there is an Ash Mountain Park in California and   Horse Island in Alaska in North America.
Figures   in the book The Native Tribes of Central Australia by Spencer and Gillen depicted a kind of dance said to be current among the wild native tribes of Australia. The dance is described in the book as “Siva’s Dance”. On the loser examination, the dance appear to have painted on their forehead a third eye, a few suggestive of the possibility that the people of even such distant lands as Australia were acquainted with our Vedic gods.
In Eastern Archipilago, evidences of our religion are to be found.  In Java, there are numerous relics of Hindu cult and worship. In Borneo there is a forest which used to be spoken of as Virgin Forest (The Malay Archipelago). A party of explorers discovered a stone which contained an inscription commemorating   in detail the performances of some Yagas and Yajnas by certain king (Yupa inscriptions of Mula Varman of Koeti, Borneo).
All these evidences serve to show that our religion was once prevalent throughout the globe.  It may have been that for causes which we are not able to ascertain, the tenets and practices of our religion began to decline in other parts and their prevalence came to be confined to the land of their origin originally known as Bhaaraa Varsha., India. When it lapsed into oblivion in other countries and when due to lack of any religious consciousness, the people became godless and unethical, there arose in those lands great prophets, who brought to light one aspect or another of the forgotten religion. They declared themselves to be founders of new religions and came to be revere as such. But it must be noted that the fundamental moral principles underlying these new religions only emphasized some feature or the other of the Universal Vedic religion with certain theological variations”
I would like to add the following to the above:
The migration of Hindus and Buddhists from India to the Americas from Alaska to the Andes, their establishing colonies there and spreading their religion and culture millennia before Columbus is now a well-recognized fact. The Americanist Congress held in the Mexico City in 1962, where a number of learned papers supporting this theory were presented, is the proof of this.  The City of Hastinupara on the outskirts of Buenos Aires on which I gave a discourse in the past is acknowledgement of that history! The Incas and Peru were none other than the Hindus who had migrated by land and sea from India.
It is worth going through Traditions of Sanat Kumara, East and West   focused on religions and traditions by   Light-bearers Worldwide in the Appendix.








APPENDIX
Light-bearers Worldwide
Traditions of Sanat Kumara, East and West       
The Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof)
An Esoteric History of Our Solar System
According to esoteric tradition, life exists throughout this solar system. Though invisible to the untrained eye, millions of souls on other planets contribute to the overall spiritual ecosystem of our solar system and galaxy. Our choices on earth also greatly impact their destiny.
 What appears to be science fiction is actually spiritual non-fiction. The reason why our scientists cannot detect these life forms is because there are several dimensions within the physical plane that vibrate at different frequencies.  Life on the Sun, Venus, and Mercury vibrates at a higher frequency that corresponds to the etheric plane. Life on Mars vibrates at the water (astral) level of the physical plane. Some people who have clairvoyance would be able to perceive these life forms, just as they are able to perceive ghosts and demons within the astral plane of earth; fairies, gnomes, and leprechauns within elemental life; and angels and celestial cities in the etheric plane.

The harmony between planets, solar systems and galaxies was greatly shaken up by the fall of the Nephilim, Nophilim, Watchers, Lucifer, Satan, Serpent and many other angels who served under them. The Book of Revelation explains that the fall took one third of the stars (angelic causal bodies) in heaven.
 And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and the dragon fought and prevailed not. Neither was their place found anymore in heaven. And he was cast out onto the earth, that old serpent called the devil and Satan, and his angels were cast out with him.
As evil's energy veil clouded over the grand cosmic design, life streams on each planet were faced with Eve's temptation and choice in the Garden of Eden—to remain faithful to their God identity and Christ consciousness or to enter duality, lured by pride, false doctrine, material indulgence and worldly recompense.
The asteroid belt in our solar system between Mars and Jupiter is actually the remains of the planet Maldek that blew up as souls partook in the ultimate warring of the fallen ones. Clairvoyants have also seen the remains of a planet between Mercury and the Sun named Hedron, which disintegrated. (The word hedonism and corresponding pleasure cult comes from this root.) Many of the life-streams on these planets went through the second death described in Revelation. Those who still had God potential were allowed to ream-body on earth. Known as the laggards, they brought with them previous spiritual attainment as well as intense momentums of rebellion, materialism and war.

Known as the laggards, they brought with them previous spiritual attainment as well as intense momentums of rebellion, materialism and war.

Understanding the Fall

    The fall was justified in Lucifer's mind by his sense of injustice concerning mankind, created a little lower than the angels, nevertheless given free will and ultimately crowned, through Christ, with greater honor and glory.

     What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor. (Psalm 8 and Hebrews 2)
    Filled with jealousy and resentment, seeking revenge and retaliation, the fallen angels —following Lucifer's example—refused to serve mankind. Like the sibling rivalry of a spoiled "enfant terrible," who seeks sympathy from those around him and will stop at nothing to get his way, their childish impetuosity blinded them to God-reality. They could no longer identify with the divine consciousness of the Law of the One or receive the protection of the circle of oneness that vibrates at love's higher frequency. In their rebellion, they were cast out of heaven (the etheric plane) through their own doing. Defying the name of God I AM THAT I AM, they heralded egoic independence as "I am who I am," cloaked in worldly prestige and non-challenge.
 Whether in embodiment or working through those in embodiment, the fallen ones still channel their former wisdom into deceiving and enslaving the children of God. They cunningly exploit mankind's free will by leading him into idolatrous relationships, binding associations and karmic ties that, lifetime after lifetime, become most difficult to disengage from. 
Cut off from their divine source, they syphon the light of the children of God in a vampiristic way until all of their former attainment has been spent and they receive the final judgment and second death. Fashionable parasites, they prolong their time by karma dodging, and by cunningly tempting the children of God to relinquish their light through a culture of “sex, drugs and rock and roll,” backed by abortion. They orchestrate wars, nuclear, chemical and biological warfare, genetic engineering and population control for the shedding of blood, for the manipulation of the light essence and to reduce the percentage of light bearers. They also manipulate the economy and money systems to hoard the abundant life. Revelation warns:
Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
Roaming the physical and the astral planes (the earth and the sea), these rebellious ones wedge themselves into positions of power to attack the Christ potential in all of God's children, be it latent, developing of fully manifest. Generation after generation, they work to sabotage the advent of universal Christ consciousness and tarnish the vision of the Prophet Micah, "each man under his own vine and fig tree."
They surround and move in on the true Lights of God to control the Word through codification, modification and "letter of the law" interpretation. Warping the teachings delivered through avatars, prophets and even our founding fathers, they downplay and ultimately condemn the innate divinity, rightful inheritance and ordained mission of each Son and Daughter of God. Insulating themselves from their karma through mutual reinforcement, they boast of social, political and spiritual superiority, and disseminate self-serving interpretations of the law to further enshrine their ego-control, social eminence, political power, and legalistic claims. Sadly, their agenda has also infected many light-bearers.
Advocates of hierarchy and inherited power, they promulgate false hierarchies and totalitarian regimes based on control and idolatry, where their authority is revered over that of the Christ. In this context, "dissidents" are met with intimidation, humiliation, and elimination; and allegiance is rewarded with an illusory sense of superiority, security, belonging and self-righteousness—all at a cost.
Conditioning to this system for thousands of years has created a psychological rift within mankind that taints the concept of true hierarchy on which heaven is built— fraternal bonds where the greatest is humblest servant of all, where the good shepherd gives his life for his sheep, and where those with more attainment lovingly and respectfully help those with less attainment by lending their momentum and example.

 The false hierarchy's double standards, haughtiness, cupidity, hatred of Christ, hoarding of the Word (key of knowledge) and clique building is what Jesus rebuked during much of his Palestinian ministry when he challenged the fallen consciousness of the high priests and their lawyers. His dialogue below is recorded in the Books of Matthew, Luke and John.
The scribes and the pharisees sit in Moses seat:...and love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, "Rabbi, Rabbi." But be ye not called Rabbi: for one is your master, even Christ, and all ye are brethren....But ye that is greatest among you shall be your servant....
Woe unto you lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered....
    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in....for ye devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long prayer... for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy and faith...Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat and swallow a camel....O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets and stonest them which are sent unto thee....
Murmur not among yourselves. It is written in the prophets, "and they shall all be taught of God."... How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?..
 Is it not written in your law, I said, "Ye are gods?" If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken, say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, "thou blasphemest; because I said I am the son of God?"..
Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me....
 (Responding to their accusation) I have not a devil, but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me....Why do you not understand my speech? Even because ye cannot hear my word. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him....
Why go ye about to kill me? Speaking to his disciples, Jesus prophesied how their stand for Christ would be received in life's unfolding drama :
 Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil....
Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,, bless them that curse you and pray them that despitefully use you...For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye?...
 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own....Remember the word that I said unto you, "the servant is not greater than his lord." If they have persecuted me, they will persecute you....And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning....
they you will think that he doeth God service.

A Rescue Mission
         Long before Jesus' Gallilean mission, Earth had already become so polluted by fallen influences that the planet could no longer be spiritually and physically sustained. This is where the story of Sanat Kumara and 144,000 volunteers from Venus comes in. To save Earth, these high souls chose to follow their guru in exile from a planet of beauty and love, described by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in his poem, The Evening Star
Lo! in the painted oriel of the West,
Whose panes the sunken sun incarnadines,
Like a fair lady at her casement, shines
The evening star, the star of love and rest!
Ad then anon she doth herself divest
Of all her radiant garments, and reclines
Behind the sombre screen of yonder pines,
With slumber and soft dreams of love oppressed.
O my beloved, my sweet Hesperus!
My morning and my evening star of love!
My best and gentlest lady! even thus,
As that fair planet in the sky above,
Dost thou retire unto thy rest at night,
And from thy darkened window fades the light.
 (The book, Dweller on Two Planets, by Phylos the Tibetan, gives a poignant description of life on Venus at the etheric vibrational frequency.)
The mission of the 144,000 was to embody, like Jesus, in earth's densest conditions again and again to challenge darkness, to bring forth light, to expose the fallen ones and to ensoul divine awareness. Wayshowers of Christ, these ones came to reignite the spiritual flame in the hearts of mankind, rekindling the connection to innate divinity, so that through free will mankind might once again, in the words of Moses, "choose life, not death."
The sacrifice of the 144,000 was immense. Their story is recorded in books by the I AM Movement, Agni Yoga, Werner Schroeder, Charles Leadbeater and Mark and Elizabeth Clare Prophet. The forerunners of this group built the retreat of Shamballa on an island in the Gobi Sea (now the Gobi desert between Mongolia and China.)
   

Sanat Kumara

Sanat Kumara is a manifestation of God, a spiritual being of great light. He is known as the Ancient of Days, the Eternal Youth, the Regent Lord of the World and ruler of Shamballa. He is also one of seven holy kumaras referenced in sacred scriptures.

Sanat Kumara is the bearer of fire. Leading the armies of heaven, he takes up serpents in order to bring peace. He represents the Rose Cross and the Ruby Cross. His emblems are the Flying Eagle (the elevated glyph of Scorpio) and the Yule Log, which symbolizes the rekindling of the threefold flame in the heart of man. In some cultures, he is associated with the symbol of the fish, with the water of life and with the Pleiades.

 Sanat Kumara teaches a path of sacrifice, service, selflessness and surrender that leads to permanent reunion with God. His presence can be felt while playing the music Finlandia by Sibelius (now playing with the Ode to Joy, Christus Resurrected, the Battle Hymn of the Republic and Wien, Wien nur du allein, keynote of Lady Master Venus), which anchors such a flame of freedom that it was banned. During the time Finland was an autonomic Grand Duchy of Russia, Tsar Nikolai II started a period of oppression 1899, trying to make the Finnish people Russians, with very little success. He forbid Finlandia, because it was lifting the spirit of nationhood in Finland and was a symbol of independence movement. The period lasted until the independence at 1917, and was called "sortovuodet", the years of repression.
References to Sanat Kumara are found throughout the world. References to Shamballa are found in Eastern texts and traditions in geographical proximity to the Gobi Desert. References to the 144,000 are found in the Bible as well as in Native American tradition.

Sanat Kumara in the Scandinavian Tradition


Wainamoinen
    The word Kumara in Finnish means one who is bowing or stooped, and this is often associated with being aged. The story of the quest for fire is reflected in the Finnish national epic, The Kalevala, which may be thousands of years old and charts the story of Wainamoinen, whose name signifies ancient wisdom.

Sanat Kumara in the Native American Tradition

Sanat Kumara’s presence has been recognized in the Native American tradition as Wakan Tanka, the Great Spirit. In the Song of Hiawatha, Longfellow also refers to Gitche Manito (manitou) the mighty, the creator of the nations, a paternal figure who looks upon his children with pity and compassion, urging them to stop their feudin
I am weary of your quarrels,
Weary of your wars and bloodshed,
Weary of your prayers for vengeance,
Of your wranglings and dissensions;
All your strength is in your union,
All your danger is in discord;
Therefore be at peace henceforward,
And as brothers live together.
Another Native American tradition is The Legend of the White Buffalo Woman. The story speaks of a giant eagle who swooped out of the sky to save a young woman during the great deluge at the end of the Old World. Through the marriage of the Woman of the Earth and the Eagle of the Sky, a nation is born again. This is akin to the reference made in chapter twelve of the book of Revelation, “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.”
 The Hopi tradition describes the gathering of 144,000 "rainbow warriors" or “sundancers” who will unite the earth. At that time, people will have their choice to accept or reject the Creator's plan for peace on earth. This is prophetically seen as the return of Quetzacoatl who in the ancient Mayan tradition is also the God of the planet Venus.

Sanat Kumara in Zoroastrianism


Zoroaster
In ancient Persia, Sanat Kumara was revered as Ahura Mazda who appeared to Zarathustra in the presence of six other beings of light (kumaras). It is said that in their presence, Zarathustra did not see his own shadow upon the earth, owing to their great light.
 Ahura Mazda means “Wise Lord.” Zarathustra recognized Ahura Mazda as the one true God, the creator of the universe, and went on to create a spiritual tradition based on keeping the flame. Even today, devotees of zoroastrianism use fire upon their altar in remembrance.
The encounters and teachings of Ahura Mazda with Zarathustra and with Yima, the good shepherd and first mortal with whom Ahura Mazda did converse, are recorded in the Zend Avesta. Here, Ahura Mazda is described as having seven emanations, the Amesha Spentas who are "bounteous immortals." The one that Yima and Zarathustra invoke most is Spenta Armaiti, described through the qualities of divine wisdom, devotion, piety, benevolence, loving- kindness, right-mindedness, peace, love, and service. Zoroastrian scholars consider Spenta Armaiti as embodying the virtues of service, loving-kindness and the serenity that comes with enlightenment. He embodies “universal bountiful tranquility,” not only personal peace and love but peace among communities and nations. He implies love without expectation of reciprocity, dutifulness without contemplation of reward, and the universal brotherhood of man.
 Ahura Mazda teaches mankind the laws of sacrifice and service, how to honor the four elements and how to cast out the evil one (Angra Mainyu) through the power of the spoken word. Thus, one can achieve prosperity and peace.
 Ahura Mazda speaks: Say aloud those words in the Gathas that are to be said twice: ‘I drive away Angra Mainyu from this house, from this borough, from this town, from this land; from the very body of man defiled by the dead, from the very body of woman defiled by the dead; from the master of this house, from the lord of the borough, from the lord of the town, from the lord of the land; from the lord of the whole world of Righteousness.’
In the Prayer for Helpers, the supplicant calls:
And now in these Thy dispensations, O Ahura Mazda! Do Thou wisely act for us, and with abundance with Thy bounty and Thy tenderness as touching us; and grant that reward which Thou hast appointed to our souls, O Ahura Mazda! Of this do Thou Thyself bestow upon us for this world and the spiritual; and now as part thereof do Thou grant that we may attain fellowship with Thee, and Thy Righteousness for all duration.

Sanat Kumara in Hinduism



Skanda
 In Sanskrit, the language of the Vedas, Sanat Kumara means "eternal, beautiful youth." The seed syllable “Ra” also means flame or sacred fire. Other references to Sanat Kumara are Jagan-Natha, for Lord of the World, Kartikeya and Murukan. Sanat Kumara is a son of Brahma, the one supreme God, and brother of Ganesha. He is Skanda, son of Shiva and Parvati, God of War and commander in chief of the divine army of the gods. Son of the Pleiades, he is born to slay Taraka, the demon of ignorance. He is also known as Guha, which means cave, because he lives in the cave of the heart.The Ramayan of Valkimi is an Indian epic based on oral traditions passed down centuries before Christ. Canto VIII, entitled Sumantra's speech, mentions Sanat Kumara by that name. We read:

Hear, Sire, a tale of days gone by.
To many a sage in time of old,
Sanatkumár, the saint, foretold
How from thine ancient line, O King,
A son, when years came round, should spring….
To him no mortal shall be known
Except his holy sire alone.
Still by those laws shall he abide
Which lives of youthful Bráhmans guide,
Obedient to the strictest rule
That forms the young ascetic's school:
And all the wondering world shall hear
Of his stern life and penance drear;
His care to nurse the holy fire
And do the bidding of his sire….
He, at the Offering of the Steed,
The flames with holy oil shall feed…
I have repeated, Sire, thus far,
The words of old Sanatkumár,
In order as he spoke them then
Amid the crowd of holy men.

Sanat Kumara in Buddhism  

Adibuddha
Sanat Kumara is Dipankara, the lamp lighting buddha said to predate the historical buddha in a world cycle long past. He is sometimes equated with Adibuddha, the original Buddha and is the being Gautama Buddha pledged himself to.
    

The kingdom of Shamballa plays a central role in Tibetan Buddhism. Sacred Tibetan texts speak of Shamballa as “a mystical kingdom hidden behind snow peaks somewhere north of Tibet. There a line of enlightened kings is supposed to be guarding the most secret teachings of Buddhism for a time when all truth in the world outside is lost in war and the lust for power and wealth. Then, according to prophecy, a future King of Shambhala will come out with a great army to destroy the forces of evil and bring in a golden age. Under his enlightened rule, the world will become, at last, a place of peace and plenty, filled with the riches of wisdom and compassion.”
    Shamballa is better known in the West as Shangri-la, made famous through the 1930s book and movie, Lost Horizon. This theme of Shamballa was taken up in many of the beautiful paintings of Russian painter Nicholas Roerich, who also wrote a book by that name.

Sanat Kumara in Islam

El Khdir, Dhulqarnein and the water of life
 
     Sanat Kumara is referenced in the Koran, in Rumi’s poetry and in other Islamic work as El Khidr. Speaking of El Khdir, the Prophet Mohammed says, “I have seen my Lord in the most beautiful of forms.”
     El Khdir preserves and maintains the Reality of the Golden Chain by training prophets and mystics to come to understand that, "Above every knower there is a greater knower." He is the benign presence of divine wisdom as imparted by the Divine himself through direct revelation. He makes sudden appearances to succor people in times of need and is hidden initiator to those who walk the mystical path. As spiritual head of the divinely instituted hierarchy of saints, he rules over ‘the Men of the Unseen” (rijalu’l-ghayb)—exalted saints and angels who transfer divine science, Theosophia, down through the ages.
     It is believed that the Muslim veneration of El Khdir (Al Khizr) was initially adopted from Indian Sufis as a manifestation of the Hindu God Skanda, son of Shiva. At a shrine on the Indus near Bakhar, El Khdir is worshipped by both Hindus and Muslims who set afloat in a pond or river a little boat which bears a lighted lamp.  In both Moslem and Hindu art, El Khdir is depicted as the figure of an aged man in a green coat carried on top of the water by a fish which conveys him over the river of life. This may also relate back to to the vesica pisces, a form resembling an Egyptan hieroglyph depicted as the "place between" where Christ steps out, with a mathematical ratio described by the Pythagorians as the "measure of the fish."


Moslem or Hindu depiction

The name El Khdir means “the green one,” and "eternal youth” who found immortality by drinking the Water of Life. According to the Book of Prophets, Mohammed said that El Khdir became known as such because he once sat on a barren white land which then turned luxuriantly green with vegetation.   
El Khdir is referenced as the companion and teacher of Moses, Joshua and many other mystics and saints. He is associated with Hermes and Enoch, and with the ancient schools of the prophets attended by Elijah, Elisha and Samuel. These are described in the Apocalypse of Elias, a most sacred Essene apocryphal text that Jesus, Mary, John the Baptist and Joseph are said to have studied. He is also associated with the Jewish legend of the “Wandering Jew.”
Moses finds El Khdir where the two seas, or oceans, meet, which has been interpreted as perfect knowledge joining the exoteric and esoteric. The fish of wisdom, which was dead, comes alive in the presence of El Khdir and disappears in a ‘parting of the sea.’
A similar event takes place with Dhulqarnein (also known as Iskandar—related to Skanda), historically interpreted as Alexander the Great. Here, Dhulqarnein and El Khdir journey through the land of darkness to the ends of the earth to find the water of life. When they find this water, El Khdir partakes of it and both marvel at how the water of life revives the fish.
To seal mankind from the forces of Gog and Magog ravaging the land, El Khadir asks Dhulqarnein to build a rampart that will stay up until the trumpet sounds for the final judgment, when the great harvest of souls takes place.
El Khdir can also be found in Kahf, the cave of revelation, where Moses meets him. Interestingly, Mount Qaf, where the water of life flows, is home of the Huma Bird, the Persian equivalent to the Phoenix who rises from the ashes.   

In Jung and the 18th Sura
, Carl Jung writes, “El Khadir may well be the symbol of the self. His qualities symbolize him as such; he is said to have been born in a cave, i.e. in darkness. He is the long lived one who continually renews himself, like Elijah. He is analogous to the second Adam. He is a counselor, a Paraclete, Brother Khdir. […]Khdir symbolizes not only a higher wisdom but also a way of acting.”
The intercession of El Kadhir is considered a great honor by many Sufis. The prayer below to be given before sleep 15 times invokes his presence so he can appear in a dream and advise the supplicator.
Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem; Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem Bismillahi al Amaan al Amaan; Ya Hanaan al Amaan al Amaan; Ya Manaan al Amaan al Amaan; Ya da Yaan al Amaan al Amaan; Ya subhan al Amaan al Amaan; Ya burhaan al Amaan al Amaan; Min fitna tiz zAmaani wa jafaa; Il ikhwani wa shar rish shaitan; Wa zulmis sultan be fadhlika; Ya Raheem Ya Rahman; Ya zul Jalaali wal ikraam; Wa sall Allahu ala khairi khaliqi; hi Muhammadin wa alihi wa as haabi hi ajmaeen bi Rahmatika; Ya Arham ar Rahimeen; Wa sall Allahu ala Khairi; Khaliqi Hi Muhammadin; wa alihi wa as Haabi; hi Ajmaeen bi Rahmatika; Ya Arham Ar Rahimeen

   
    
Sanat Kumara in European Traditions


The Miracle of the Grail by Wilhelm Hauschild
Some chivalry references in Europe trace their way back to Sanat Kumara. Medieval knights who formed the Order of the Garter adapted much of their underground mystical ritual from their sojourn to Persian and Arabic lands, and from their reverence for El Khdir. Saint George, patron saint of Great Britain, has also been associated with El Khdir as dragon slayer who may ultimately slay the dragon in the book of Revelation.
There may be a connection between Sanat Kumara and the Hermetic green lion, whose seven chakras are stars like the Pleiades and whose blood brings transmutation. And there is undoubtedly a connection between Sanat Kumara and the grail legends.

Sanat Kumara in Judaism and Christianity

ALBEREGNO, Jacobello Vision of St. John the Evangelist
 Sanat Kumara is the presence of the Flying Eagle, recorded by John and by the Prophet Ezekiel. He is the Presence of the Lamb in the book of Revelation who stands with the 144,000 for the descent of the New Jerusalem.
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them
which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
The 144,000 people stood before the throne, the four living creatures and the elders; they were singing a new song, which only they could learn.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
 Sanat Kumara is the Ancient of Days in the Book of Daniel.

I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of Days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.
    He is invoked throughout the Old Testament as “The Lord Thy God,” who delivers the ten commandments and the Pentateuch (five first books of the Old Testament) to Moses. He watches over the exodus and diaspora of the twelve tribes of Israel until they reunite again, as prophesied in Revelation. When you search through the Old Testament for “the Lord thy God,” you begin to see a clear picture of the divine edicts brought forth through Sanat Kumara, referenced by the prophets Jeremiah, Isaiah, Hosea, Amos and Zephaniah. Below are some excerpts:

Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged. For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God is he which goeth over before thee; as a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee.
Understand therefore, that the LORD thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou art a stiffnecked people. Remember, and forget not, how thou provokedst the LORD thy God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the LORD.
And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name. He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen. Thy fathers went down into Egypt with threescore and ten persons; and now the LORD thy God hath made thee as the stars of heaven for multitude. Therefore thou shalt love and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.
For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.


In the New Testament, Jesus quotes "The Lord thy God" when he is tempted by Satan in the wilderness:
Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and showeth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
And ultimately, when he gives us the first commandment:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Sanat Kumara in Theosophy, the Bridge to the Freedom and The I AM Movement

I AM Movement    
Since the late 1800s, a number of spiritual movements have mentionned Sanat Kumara in their writings. These include books by HP Blavatsky, the I AM Movement, the Bridge to Freedom, Werner Shroeder, Leadbeater and Annie Besant.
 Below is a beautiful description of Sanat Kumara, taken from the book, The Masters and the Path, by C.W. Leadbeater, written in 1925.
 Our world is governed by a Spiritual King—one of the Lords of the Flame Who came long ago from Venus. He is called by the Hindus, Sanat Kumara, the last word being a title meaning Prince or Ruler. He is often spoken of as the One Initiator, the One without a Second, the Eternal Youth of Sixteen Summers; and sometimes he is called the Lord of the World. He is the Supreme Ruler; in His hand and within His actual aura lies the whole of His planet. He represents the Logos, as far as this world is concerned, and directs the whole of its evolution—not that of humanity alone, but also the evolution of the Devas, the nature-spirits, and all other creatures connected with the earth. He is, of course, entirely distinct form the great Entity called the Spirit of the Earth, who uses our world as a physical body.
In his mind He holds the whole plan of evolution at some high level of which we know nothing; He is the force which drives the whole world-machine, the embodiment of the Divine Will on this planet, and strength, courage, decision, perseverance and all similar characteristics, when they show themselves down here in the lives of men, are reflections of him. His consciousness is of so extended a nature that it comprehends at once all the life on our globe in His hands are the powers of cyclic destruction for He wields Fohat in its highest forms and can deal directly with cosmic forces outside our chain. His work is probably usually connected with humanity en masse rather than with individuals, but when He does influence any single person we are told that is is through Atma and not through Ego that His influence is brought to bear.
At a certain point in the progress of an aspirant on the Path he is formerly presented to the Lord of the World, and those who have thus met Him face to face speak of Him as in appearance a handsome youth, dignified, benignant beyond all description, yet with such a mien of omniscient, inscrutable majesty conveying such a sense of restless power that some have found themselves unable to bear His gaze, and have veiled their faces in awe. Thus, for example, did our great Founder, Madame Blavatsky. One who has had this experience can never forget it, not can he ever thereafter doubt that, however terrible the sin and sorrow on earth may be, all things are somehow working together for the eventual good of all, and humanity is being steadily guided towards its final goal.


Sanat Kumara On The Path of the Ruby Ray:
The Opening of the Seventh Seal

 Mark and Elizabeth Clare Prophet gave many teachings and dictations on and by Sanat Kumara.  The book Sanat Kumara on the Path of the Ruby Ray: The Opening of the Seventh Seal published in 1979 is a treasury of teachings dictated by Sanat Kumara for his disciples.

Sanat Kumara and the Music of the Spheres

Composer Dorothy Lee Fulton, Messenger of Music, has received hundreds of songs from Mother Mary dedicated to ascended masters, angels and cosmic beings. Several of these songs relate to Sanat Kumara, Lady Master Venus and the Ruby Ray path. They are featured in our store and also available from Cosmic Portals. The words, excerpted below, paint a beautiful description of the mission of the Ancient of Days. The music is a tool for deep soul healing and for contact with the etheric octaves.

The song, Lovely Lady Venus and Sanat Kumara, describes these hierarchs of Light:

"Twin flames emerging in love's golden glow, sacred fire converging in heavenly flow.
"O Holy Rose Cross, blest Ancient of Days, thy holy radiance our consciousness raise. O come, holy green fires of Venus we pray, anchor the Light rays of Emerald fire"
    "Great Cosmic Beings of the Pleaides, beings of love's healing flame, bring upon Terra love's sweet melody
"Leading us back to Shamballa, harp strings of Hesper now ring."
The song, Sanat Kumara Calls Become the Christ, charts the initiations of the Ruby Ray.

"Worthy is the Lamb, Lord God Almighty....Thou art worthy to take the book, open the seals thereof. For thou wast slain and hast redeemed us unto God, by thy blood out of each kindred, tongue and nation, and hast made us unto our God—Kings and Priests."
   "Lo! I, the Ancient of Days, do stand before you in the person of Lord Gautama Buddha, in the person of Lord Maitreya, Lord Jesus Christ, the two witneses, the Flying Eagle."
"Lo! I AM here in the fulness of the Word made flesh. Behold, a door is open into Heaven. Behold, the Lion, the Calf, behold the Man, the two witnesses, the Flying Eagle Sanat Kumara, blessed Kumaras."
"Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was and is and is to come. Our spirits rise with the magnet of the Great Central Sun into shafts of Light to the center of the One. Behold! A door in heaven is open, and in the midst and round about the throne, four beasts full of eyes before, behind, around each one, full of eyes within. And they rest not by day or by night saying, 'Holy, holy, holy Lord God Almighty,' filled with the Christ and infused with the Light of the Ruby Ray.
 "I initiate you, my beloved, into the spiritual body of God, one with my heart. Soon, you shall start to embody four faces of Christ. Show forth, my beloved, the face of the Lion Lord Maitreya, great baptiser of water and fire. Sacrifice self, slay the beast of selflessness [false humility, sense of unworthiness], enter into the baptism of the Lord.
 "Show forth, my Beloved, the face of the Calf, beloved Lord Gautama Buddha, archetype of the Christ crucified. Through service your soul shall slay the beast of self love. Enter into the crucifixion of the Lord."
 "Show forth, my beloved, the face of a man, Beloved Lord Jesus Christ, Living Savior, I AM THAT I AM. Surrender the Self, slay the beast of selfishness, enter into the resurrection of the son of man."
 "Show forth, my beloved, the face of the Flying Eagle, beloved Sanat Kumara, great regenerator of water and earth through selflessness, slay the beast of selfish idolatry. Enter into the ascension of the Flying Eagle."
he song, Decree Ruby Ray, pronounces Sanat Kumara's judgment on the fallen ones and their consciousness, to be spoken and sung out loud by lightbearers worldwide:
"The decree goes forth: Thus far and no farther! Either the earth is to be destroyed by the infamy of the fallen ones, else they must have the instantaneous return by the Ruby Ray of that which they have sent forth."
"Sanat Kumara has stretched forth his hand, the Lord God Almighty shall reveal himself.
 "Pow'r of the Judgment of the Lord God Almighty has gone forth from the Great White Throne and Him that sat upon it. The Lord of the vineyard has spoken: The Light of the Ruby Ray is come into the very core of hate and hate creation. By the pow'r of Elohim, the pow'r of El Shaddai, the pow'r of El Elyon, the pow'r of the I AM THAT I AM! They are bound and turned back! Lo! It is done! The Ruby Ray is driven into the very core of darkness that has used them. By the power of YOD HE VAU HE, it is done! There is descending that quickening laser beam Ruby Ray judgment of the fallen ones who would destroy the earth, destroy the holy ones. They shall not stand! They shall be turned back!"
"Everywhere in the heart of the earth the Ruby Ray is come everywhere. Lo! Elohim! Lo! Elohim! Lo! Elohim! I claim the mantle, the opportunity, the day of sacrifice, the day of surrender to the Ruby Ray. Therefore the Word is gone forth: they are bound in the name I AM THAT I AM, the pow'r of YOD HE VAU HE, the pow'r of Elohim, El Elyon, Shaddai. They are bound and turned back by the light of the Ruby Ray."
And the song, Lord Maitreya, calls home the 144,000.
"From Sanat Kumara the call goes forth.... Gautama Buddha, Lord Maitreya Jesus Christ and the angelic band. Sound the sound of the seven trumpets to the hundred and forty four thousand who are with the Lamb."
"Come up higher, thus saith the Lord."
 "Blessing and honor and glory and pow'r be unto him that sitteth on the Throne and unto the Lamb forever more. Great initiator! Great Loving One!"
"To Christ magnificence, Christ resurrection, Christ healing pow'r, Christ ascension: holiness of sacred fire awaken the sleeping flame!"
"We bow before the Light of a world to come, of a Sun to be, of a City Foursquare appearing on the horizon of being."
"Seal us in blue lightning protection, white fire gossamer veil, God awareness. Hail Maitreya! Hail Vict'ry! Hail, Flame of God!"
