Master of the Seventh (Violet) Ray

Seat of the Soul Chakra

Connected to the Temple of Freedom

It is believed that Saint Germaine was born in 1561. As he grew into adulthood he mastered all of the European languages. He was one of the best swordsmen of his day. He was a master violinist.

He was a personal friend of Voltaire, Rousseau, and a great many other distinguished philosophers. He knew many European heads of state. He was known as "the man who never dies and knows everything".

He was very wealthy, but no one knew how he had accumulated his great wealth. He was a great painter and musical conductor. He had an extensive knowledge of herbalism. Some feel that this attributed to his long life. He was a master alchemist. It is said that he could turn base metals into gold.

He founded Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry in England. He did this under the name Francis Bacon. It was his dream to create in America a new country free of corruption, greed, and dictatorial monarchies. He was instrumental in formulating the Declaration of Independence and the constitution of the United States as they were being written by his Masonic followers who founded this nation. Their Masonic symbols can be seen on the dollar bill.

He spent eighty five years with the Trans-Hilalayan Brotherhood which was made up of El Moyra, Kuthumi, Djwhal Khul, and others.

He lived for over 350 years, staging his death between lifetimes. As a writer he used the names Christopher Marlowe, Edmund Spenser, Montaigne, Robert Burton, Cervantes, Valentine Andraes, and Comte de Gabalis.

It is from his ascended state that he brings the ultimate gift of freedom--The Violet Flame.

From The Ascended Masters

Ruler of an Ancient Civilization

More than fifty thousand years ago, a golden civilization thrived in a fertile country with a semitropical climate where the Sahara Desert now is.  It was filled with great peace, happiness and prosperity and ruled with supreme justice and wisdom by this very Saint Germain.

The majority of his subjects retained full, conscious use of the wisdom and power of God. They possessed abilities that today would seem superhuman or miraculous. They knew they were extensions of the Central Sun--Life-streams issuing from the Great Hub of the Spirit/Matter cosmos. For their wise ruler had charted for them on a great mural in the center of the capital city, "the City of the Sun," their cosmic history--that they should not forget the Source whence they had come nor their reason for being: To become sun centers in this distant galaxy they now called home, extensions of the Law of the One. For they were part of an expanding universe. And their sense of co-measurement with the One sustained an ever-present cognition of the I AM THAT I AM.

Saint Germain was a master of the ancient wisdom and of the knowledge of the Matter spheres. He ruled by Light every area of life; his empire reached a height of beauty, symmetry and perfection unexceeded in the physical octave. Truly the heavenly patterns were outpictured in the crystal chalice of the earth. And elemental life served to maintain the purity of the Matter quadrants.

The people regarded their hierarch as the highest expression of God whom they desired to emulate, and great was their love for his presence. He was the embodiment of the archetype of universal Christhood for that dispensation--to whom they could look as the standard for their own emerging Godhood.

Guy W. Ballard, under the pen name of Godfre Ray King, recounted in Unveiled Mysteries a soul journey in which Saint Germain conducted him through the akashic record of this civilization and its decline.

Saint Germain explained to him that "as in all ages past, there was a portion of the people who became more interested in the temporary pleasures of the senses than in the larger creative plan of the Great God Self. This caused them to lose consciousness of the God-Power throughout the land until it remained active in little more than the [capital] city itself. Those governing realized they must withdraw and let the people learn through hard experience that all their happiness and good came from the adoration to the God within, and they must come back into the Light if they were to be happy."

Thus, the ruler (the embodied representative of the spiritual hierarchy of the earth under Sanat Kumara) was instructed by a cosmic council that he must withdraw from his empire and his beloved people; henceforth their karma would be their Guru and Lawgiver, and free will would determine what, if any, of his legacy of Light they would retain.

According to plan, the king held a great banquet in the Jeweled Room of his palace, with his councillors and public servants in attendance. Following the dinner, which had been entirely precipitated, a crystal goblet filled with "pure electronic essence" appeared to the right of each of the 576 guests. It was the communion cup of Saint Germain, who, with the mantle and scepter of the ancient priest/kings, gave of his own Light essence to those who had faithfully served the realm to the glory of God.

As they drank to the "Flame of the most High Living One," they knew they could never completely forget the divine spark of the inner God Self. This soul-protection, afforded them through the ever-grateful heart of Saint Germain, would be sustained throughout the centuries until once again they should find themselves in a civilization where the cosmic cycles had turned and they would be given the full knowledge to pursue the Divine Union--this time never more to go out from the Golden City of the Sun.

Now a Cosmic Master from out the Great Silence spoke. His message was broadcast from the banquet hall  throughout the realm.  The resplendent being, who identified himself solely by the word Victory written upon his brow, brought warning of crisis to come, rebuked the people for their ingratitude to and neglect of their Great God Source, and reminded them of the ancient command to obey the Law of the One--Love. Then he gave them the following prophecy of their karma:

"A visiting prince approaches your borders. He will enter this city seeking the daughter of your king. You will come under the rule of this prince but the recognition of your mistake will be futile. Nothing can avail, for the royal family will be drawn into the protection and care of those whose power and authority are of God, and against whom no human desire can ever prevail. These are the great Ascended Masters of Light from the golden etheric city over this land. Here your ruler and his beloved children will abide for a cycle of time." The king and his children withdrew seven days later. The prince arrived the next day and took over without opposition.

As we study the history of Saint Germain's lifestream we shall see that time and time again the Master and his way of God-mastery have been rejected by the very ones he sought to help; notwithstanding the fact that his gifts of Light, Life and Love--fruits of his adeptship freely given--his alchemical feats, elixir of youth, inventions and prognostications have been readily received.

The goal of his embodiments extending from the golden-age civilization of the Sahara to the final hour of his life as Francis Bacon was always to liberate the children of the Light, especially those who in their carelessness in handling fiery principles of the Law had been left to their own karmic devices--in whose vices they were often bound. His aim was to see the fulfillment of his prayer offered at the final banquet of his reign:

If they must have the experience that consumes and burns away the dress and clouds of the outer self, then do Thou sustain and at last bring them forth in Thy Eternal Perfection. I call unto Thee, Thou Creator of the Universe--Thou Supreme Omnipotent God.

High Priest on Atlantis

As the High Priest of the Violet Flame Temple on the mainland of Atlantis thirteen thousand years ago, Saint Germain sustained by his invocations and his causal body a pillar of fire, a fountain of violet singing flame, which magnetized people from near and far to be set free from every binding condition of body, mind and soul. This they achieved by self-effort through the offering of invocations and the practice of Seventh Ray rituals to the sacred fire.

An intricately carved marble circular railing enclosed the shrine where supplicants knelt in adoration of the God flame--visible to some as a physical violet flame, to others as an 'ultraviolet' light and to others not at all, though the powerful healing vibrations were undeniable.

The temple was built of magnificent marble ranging in hue from brilliant white, shot through with violet and purple veins, to deeper shades of the Seventh Ray spectrum. The central core of the temple was a large circular hall lined in ice-violet marble set upon a rich purpled marble floor. Three stories in height, it was situated midst a complex of adjacent areas for worship and the various functions of priests and priestesses who ministered unto the Flame and mediated its voice of Light and Prophecy unto the people. Those who officiated at this altar were schooled in the universal priesthood of the Order of Melchizedek at Lord Zadkiel's retreat, the Temple of Purification, in the locale of the West Indies.

Through the heights and depths of the ages that have ensued, Saint Germain has ingeniously used the Seventh Ray momentum of his causal body to secure freedom for keepers of the flame who have kept alive 'coals' from the violet flame altar of his Atlantean temple. He has extolled and exemplified freedom of the mind and spirit. Endowing the four sacred freedoms with an identity of their own, he has championed our freedom from state interference, kangaroo courts, or popular ridicule in matters ranging from scientific investigation to the healing arts to the spiritual quest.

Standing on a platform of basic human rights for a responsible, reasoning public educated in the principles of liberty and equal opportunity for all, he has ever taught us to espouse our inalienable divine right to live life according to our highest conception of God. For the Master has said that no right, however simple or basic, can long be secure without the underpinning of the spiritual graces and the Divine Law that instills a compassionate righteousness in the exercise thereof.

Samuel the Prophet

Returning to the scene of the karma of his people as Samuel, prophet of the LORD and judge of the twelve tribes of Israel (c. 1050 B.C.), Saint Germain was the messenger of God's liberation of the seed of Abraham from bondage to the corrupt priests, and from the Philistines by whom they had been defeated. Bearing in his heart the special sign of the blue rose of Sirius, Samuel delivered to the recalcitrant Israelites a prophecy parallel to his twentieth-century discourses both inextricably linked with God's covenants concerning karma, free will and grace:

"If ye do return unto the LORD with all your hearts, then put away the strange gods and Ashtaroth from among you, and prepare your hearts unto the LORD and serve him only: and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines." Later, when King Saul disobeyed God, Samuel freed the people from his tyranny by anointing David king.

True to the thread of prophecy that runs throughout his lifetimes, Saint Germain was Saint Joseph of the lineage of King David, son of Jesse, chosen vessel of the Holy Ghost, father of Jesus in fulfillment of the word of the LORD to Isaiah--"There shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots...."

We see, then, in each of Saint Germain's embodiments that there is present the quality of Alchemy -a conveyance of Godly power. So ordained the instrument of the LORD, Samuel transferred His sacred fire in the anointing of David and just as scientifically withdrew it from King Saul when the LORD rejected him from being king over Israel. This unmistakable sign of the Seventh Ray adept, often in humble garb, was also present as the Holy Spirit's power of the conversion of souls and the control of natural forces in his life as the third-century Saint Alban, first martyr of the British Isles.

Alban, Roman Soldier

A Roman soldier, Alban hid a fugitive priest, was converted by him, then sentenced to death for disguising himself as the priest and allowing him to escape. A great multitude gathered to witness his execution--too many to pass over the narrow bridge that must be crossed. Alban prayed and the river parted--whereupon his executioner, being converted, begged to die in Alban's place. His request was denied and he was beheaded that day alongside the saint.

"Kuthumi is on the far left - then El Morya - and Saint Germain

This is a rare photo (circa 1800's) - of Madame Blavatsky - the woman who worked with and channeled many Ascended Masters.

From a book by Joshua David Stone:

"Djwhal Khul, Kuthumi and El Morya were Tibetan Buddhists, although very universalistic in their approach. These 3 great Masters were all physically incarnated in the Himalayas and lived close to each other. They could materialize right before your eyes. Kuthumi did so often for Madam Blavatsky. Written letters from them often materialized for her."
