Kuthumi comes to those who seek world
knowledge in this time of change - and to use that accumulated knowledge for
the good of all and to overcome the tendency towards intellectual arrogance.
He was allegedly born in the early
nineteenth century, Mahatma Kuthumi was a Punjabi whose family had settled
in Kashmir. He led an secluded life.
He attended Oxford University in 1850 and
is believed to have contributed "The Dream of Ravan" to The Dublin
University Magazine around 1854, prior to returning to his homeland.
The Kashmiri Brahman spent considerable
time in Dresden, Wurzberg, Nurnberg, and at the university in Leipzig, where
in 1875 he visited with Dr. Gustav Theodor Fechner, the founder of modern
His remaining years were spent at his
lamasery in Shigatse, Tibet, where his contact with the outside world
included didactic writings sent by mail to some of his devoted students.
Those letters are now on file with the British Museum.
Pharaoh, prophet, and high priest in
the period of the New Kingdom c. 1460 B.C., who expanded the Egyptian
kingdom to include most of the Middle East. His most decisive victory was on
a battlefield near Mt. Carmel where he led the entire army single file
through narrow Megiddo Pass to surprise and defeat an alliance of 330
rebellious Asian princes--a daring maneuver protested by the pharaoh's
terrified officers. Thutmose alone was assured of his plan and rode ahead

Greek philosopher of the sixth century
B.C., the "fair-haired Samian" who was regarded as the son of Apollo. As a
youth, Pythagoras conferred freely with priests and scholars, eagerly
seeking scientific proof of the inner law revealed to him in meditation upon
Demeter, the Mother of the Earth. His quest for the great synthesis of truth
led him to Palestine, Arabia, India, and finally to the temples of Egypt
where he won the confidence of the priests of Memphis and was gradually
accepted into the mysteries of Isis at Thebes.
When Asian conqueror Cambyses launched a
savage invasion of Egypt c. 529 B.C., Pythagoras was exiled to Babylon where
the prophet Daniel still served as king's minister. Here rabbis revealed to
him the inner teachings of the I AM THAT I AM given to Moses, and here
Zoroastrian magi tutored him in music, astronomy, and the sacred science
After twelve years, Pythagoras left
Babylon and founded a brotherhood of initiates at Crotona, a busy Dorian
seaport in southern Italy. His "city of the elect" was a mystery school of
the Great White Brotherhood where carefully selected men and women pursued a
philosophy based upon the mathematical expression of universal law,
illustrated in music and in the rhythm and harmony of a highly disciplined
way of life. After a five-year probation of strict silence, Pythagorean
"mathematicians" progressed through a series of initiations, developing the
intuitive faculties of the heart whereby the son or daughter of God may
become, as Pythagoras' Golden Verses state, "a deathless God divine, mortal
At Crotona, Pythagoras delivered his
lectures from behind a screen in a veiled language which could be fully
comprehended only by the most advanced initiates. The most significant phase
of his instruction concerned the fundamental concept that number is both the
form and the essence of creation. He formulated the essential parts of
Euclid's geometry and advanced astronomical ideas which led to Copernicus'
hypotheses. It is recorded that two thousand citizens of Crotona gave up
their customary lifestyle and assembled together in the Pythagorean
community under the wise administration of the Council of Three Hundred; a
governmental, scientific, and religious order who later exercised great
political influence throughout Magna Grecia.
Pythagoras, the "indefatigable adept," was
ninety when Cylon, a rejected candidate of the mystery school, incited a
violent persecution. Standing in the courtyard of Crotona, he read aloud
from a secret book of Pythagoras, Hieros Logos (Holy Word), distorting and
ridiculing the teaching. When Pythagoras and forty of the leading members of
the Order were assembled, Cylon set fire to the building and all but two of
the council members were killed. As a result, the community was destroyed
and much of the original teaching was lost. Nevertheless, "The Master" has
influenced many great philosophers, including Plato, Aristotle, Augustine,
Thomas Aquinas, and Francis Bacon.

The divine poverello, who renounced family
and wealth and embraced "Lady Poverty," living among the poor and the
lepers, finding unspeakable joy in imitating the compassion of Christ. While
kneeling at Mass on the feast of Se. Matthias in 1209, he heard the gospel
of Jesus read by the priest and the Lord's command to his apostles, "Go,
preach." Francis left the little church and immediately began evangelizing,
preaching the doctrine of reincarnation as Jesus had taught and converting
many disciples, including the noble Lady Clare who later left her home
dressed as the bride of Christ and presented herself to Francis for
admittance to the mendicant order.
One of the many legends surrounding the
lives of Francis and Clare describes their meal at Santa Maria degli Angeli
where Francis spoke so lovingly of God that all were enraptured in Him.
Suddenly the people of the village saw the convent and the woods ablaze and
running hastily to quench the flames, they beheld the little company
enfolded in brilliant light with arms uplifted to heaven. God revealed to
St. Francis the divine presence in "brother sun" and "sister moon" and
rewarded his devotion with the stigmata of Christ crucified. The prayer of
St. Francis is yet spoken by people of all faiths throughout the world:
"Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace!..."
Mogul emperor of India in the sixteenth
century who overthrew the corrupt government of his father Jahangir and
restored, in part, the noble ethics of his grandfather Akbar the Great.
During his enlightened reign, the splendor of the Mogul court reached its
zenith and India entered her golden age of art and architecture. Shah Jahan
lavished the imperial treasury not only on music and paintings, but
especially on the construction of awesome monuments, mosques, temples, and
thrones throughout India, some of which may still be seen today.
The famous Taj Mahal, "the miracle of
miracles, the final wonder of the world," was built as a tomb for his
beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died in 1631 giving birth to their
fourteenth child. Shah Jahan spared no effort in making the temple "as
beautiful as she was beautiful.' It is the symbol of the Mother principle
and the shrine of his eternal love for his twin flame.
Ascended Master Kuthumi
Formerly Chohan of the Second Ray of
Divine Illumination, now serves with Jesus as World Teacher. He is the
hierarch of the Cathedral of Nature, in Kashmir, India, and head of the
Brothers of the Golden Robe. Kuthumi also maintains a focus at Shigatse,
Tibet, where he plays sacred classical music of East and West and
compositions of the heavenly hosts as well as of earth's early root races on
an organ keyed to the music of the spheres, drawing souls by the sacred
sound that is God out of the astral plane into the etheric retreats of the

Madame Blavatsky and the Ascended Masters.
"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." - Joshua David Stone
