The Hierarchy of Light

Throughout time, the idea of a group of wise and enlightened beings working behind the scenes to guide our planet has been conveyed in spiritual teachings, in literature and myth. This group, known by various names such as the spiritual Hierarchy, the Masters of the Wisdom, and the Elder Brothers has ever come forth in times of crisis and today will be no different. Great teachers such as Socrates, Shri Krishna, Mohammed, the Buddha and the Christ have all been members of the Hierarchy.

As we move through this difficult transition period our future stands in the balance. It is up to humanity to accept responsibility for instituting the necessary changes so that we will begin to realise our higher spiritual possibilities. The way will then be cleared for these great teachers to return to outer physical plane activity. It is important, therefore, that more people know about the fact of the Hierarchy and about what sort of individuals the Masters of the Wisdom really are.

In ageless wisdom teachings we’re told that the Masters have been described as the “rare efflorescence of a generation of enquirers." They work primarily behind the scenes, protected in the remote areas of Earth, and it is futile, therefore, to seek them out upon the physical plane. They are individuals of extraordinary capacities. Through the repeated experience of life in form, under the Law of Rebirth, they eventually achieved self-mastery and freed themselves from the confines of normal human existence and entered into a higher state of consciousness. Because of their relative freedom they possess a tremendous ability to wield spiritual energy -- thus their power to serve, to love and to heal.

The Hierarchy works ceaselessly and could be compared to a great army working for world upliftment. They are the inspiration for the major changes being implemented in the world yet they take no credit for the work that they do. Through the process of spiritual impression they influence those leaders and progressive thinkers whose minds and hearts are receptive to the new and forward looking, incoming ideas. Their work extends to all aspects of our planetary life -- politics, education, religion, art, science, psychology and economics.

The Masters work with deliberation, free from any sense of speed, toward their objectives but they do have a time limit based on the law of cycles. There are periods of major opportunity of which the Hierarchy takes advantage and this present period is one of major opportunity. In the coming decades members of the Hierarchy will begin the process of externalisation, moving outward onto the physical plane. They will again walk among humanity to help usher in the new age and prepare human consciousness for the reappearance of the World Teacher.

This externalisation process will cause tremendous changes. Because of the Hierarchy’s enlightened leadership, the course of human affairs will be irrevocably turned towards the light and towards the realisation of the divine Plan. This will work out most noticeably through the establishment of right human relations and goodwill among the peoples of the world.

In preparation for the externalisation, humanity has an important part to play. One way that we can help is through the daily use and distribution of the Great Invocation, one of the oldest and most powerful prayers ever given to humanity. and all who use it produce powerful changes both within themselves and within their environment. Since 1945 this prayer has been used by millions and is now translated into almost 70 languages. It is the most potent tool available to us for planetary transformation during this time of expectancy.

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men*.
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.

From the center where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the center which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

*The word "men" refers all people, both genders.

The Christ himself used this great mantram for the first time in June 1945, when he announced to his Brothers, the Masters of Wisdom, that he was ready to return to the world at the earliest possible moment, as soon as humanity took the first steps towards sharing and cooperation for the general good.

If the Purpose of God, invoked through this universal prayer, guides “the little wills of men,” then the little separate wills of men and women will come at last into correct alignment with the Divine Will, and the Plan of Love and Light will work out. All that we do as a race is in response (adequate or inadequate) to the Divine energies of Will (or Purpose), Love and Light released into the world by the Spiritual Hierarchy of Masters. 

The Great Invocation was given to humanity by Maitreya the Christ as a potent technique of invoking the energies which would transform the world and prepare for his coming. We urge you to use it daily and encourage others to do so on behalf of humanity.

The Promise of the Future
An outline of what to expect from the future



Maitreya & the Master Jesus  work together & often appear together.  Soon Those Two and some other Masters will be speaking to the masses regularly via television & radio. Rather than seeing/hearing a constant stream of  horror news & horror fiction,  the world will soon get some unfathomable relief.
The Masters are unlike any people the modern world has ever seen. They do not want to be worshipped. Worshipping Them is in fact, a barrier to understanding, because we are all on the same evolutionary path.  Elementary school students do not worship college grads.  They are our elder brothers. Their consciousness is pure love and wisdom & is beyond our ability to fully grasp. They are fully divine, beyond the level of geniuses. While most of us work to be aware of what is going on in one place at time, some of them are aware of all the details in thousands to billions of situations simultaneously. Thru self-initiated discipline & service to humanity, they have manifested Their divinity. It's everyone's destiny to eventually get to where they are now & go beyond.  

People have been working in preparation  for the Reappearance of Maitreya & the Masters of Wisdom for over a century...

"The return to the everyday world of Maitreya, the World Teacher for the New Age, and the Masters of Wisdom – the Elder Brothers of humanity – is an ongoing process for which humanity has been prepared since 1875 by the Ageless Wisdom teachings. In various stages, these teachings have been released in many publications, notably those of H.P. Blavatsky, Alice A. Bailey, the Agni Yoga series, and most recently the books by Benjamin Creme

"Despite all appearances, no one is really evil. They are led astray by ignorance. If you ponder this truth always you will offer more light, rather then blame and condemnation.

You, no less than all beings have Buddha [Christ/Krishna/God potential] Nature within. Your essential Mind is pure. Therefore, when defilements cause you to stumble and fall, let not remorse nor dark foreboding cast you down. Be of good cheer and with this understanding, summon strength and walk on.

Faith is like a lamp and wisdom makes the flame burn bright. Carry this lamp always and in good time the darkness will yield and you will abide in the Light."

The Buddha in Dhammavadaka



There are three rules which are important to disciples at this time...

1. Relinquish or sacrifice the age-old tendency to criticise and adjust another's work, and thus preserve the inner group integrity. More plans for service have been hindered by criticism, than by any other major factor.

2. Relinquish or sacrifice the sense of responsibility for the actions of others, and particularly of disciples. See that your own activity measures up to theirs, and in the joy of struggle, and on the way of service, the differences will disappear, and the general good will be achieved.

3.Relinquish the pride of mind which sees its way and it's interpretations to be correct and true, and other' false and wrong. This is the way of separation. Adhere to the way of integration, which is of the soul and not of the mind.

Kalki Avatar with the sword of cleavage

"In Hinduism, Kalki (Devanagari: कल्कि; meaning 'Eternity,' 'White Horse,' or 'Destroyer of Filth') is the final incarnation of Vishnu [Maitreya, the World Teacher] in the current Mahayuga, foretold to appear at the end of Kali Yuga [now!]...the Puranas foretell that Kalki will be atop a white horse with a drawn blazing sword. He is the harbinger of the end time in Hindu eschatology, after which he will usher in Satya Yuga [New Age]." Source: Wikipedia

"When Maitreya comes before the world there will begin for men a period of intense heart-searching and reflection. It is only to be expected that for many it will be a painful, even traumatic, one. So steeped in the ways and ideas of the past, so fearful of a future unknown and strange, are millions today, that men will want to take stock of the new situation which will then pertain…. When Maitreya first announces His plans and hopes for the rehabilitation of the world, His energy of Love – the Sword of Cleavage – will further delineate the divisions which now exist. Men will take sides – for or against the new principles that He will present for the betterment of all. Thus will it be. Thus will a period of discord and discontent precede the acceptance of the new. Gradually, however, even the least sanguine will acknowledge the need for a reconstructed world and add their weight to the task.

"There will begin a time unlike aught seen before on Earth. On every hand and at every level the changes will pursue their logical course, cementing in law and principle and form the aspirations of all. Thus will men regain a hold on their destiny and turn away for ever from the abyss. (The Master -- from ‘Coping with change’) 
The Sword of Cleavage is the energy of Love. As people respond to this energy the world will be divided – those who are clamouring for change along the lines Maitreya is advocating, and those who are fearful and looking to the past, who see Him as the Antichrist, are fearful and do not know what to do. They will stand aside and watch the events, and so lose the opportunity presented, for the first time in history, to take part in the transformation of the world. It is up to each individual, from where he or she stands, to assert their divinity. (Benjamin Creme, The Awakening of Humanity)

"Much that is loved must go. Cling not to the old forms. Much will depend on man’s ability to renounce these outworn structures, and to create a new and simpler world. Remember this. Forget not that I come to change all things. My Coming brings peace. Likewise, My Presence brings cleavage. My Sword, that Love which I am, will separate all men, will show the True from the false, will clear the way for the New Light which I bring. May it be that you can withstand this change and accept My Light. (Maitreya, from Message No.74)

 In an interview with the German author Peter Andreas, the scientist Prof. G. Quispel expresses his amazement that the demonstrably wrong ideas on this subject have not been abandoned:

"I am constantly astonished to see that people still do not appear to know what has been recognized for one and a half centuries: that the beast from the Apocalypse refers to none other than the Caesar, Nero. Only the later Christian church, in the time of Constantine (325 AD), put the Apocalypse into a future, historical time-frame." (From: Was Morgenwahr sein kann, Econ Verlag)

  • One of the easiest ways to know me, Maitreya says, is to be honest in your mind, be sincere in your spirit, and practice detachment. Any action performed with dishonesty of mind, an insincere spirit and attachment is destructive. For example, when you think one thing, say another, and do something which is different again, you are lost. Honesty of mind leads to honest speech and honest action. This harmony leads to peace and happiness. Without detachment there is no salvation.

  • Be what you are. Do not surrender your self-respect, your dignity, to others. Do not allow anyone to cast his shadow over you. A Master gives experiences, but does not cast his shadow.

  • Do not follow one another. If you practice honesty of mind, sincerity of spirit and detachment, you will know me, you will know the Lord.

"The problems confronting us should be faced with courage, with truth, and understanding, as well as with the willingness to speak factually, with simplicity and with love,  in the effort to expose the truth and clarify the problems which must be solved. The opposing forces...must be routed..."    The Tibetan

"Without sharing there can be no justice;
without justice there can be no peace;
without peace there can be no future...
Man must change or die.
There is no other course."
The World Teacher

   There is no salvation surer than that through devotion. One can forgive much where there is unswerving devotion. The man who is devoted in heart can be relied upon. It is cause for rejoicing when Hierarchy is upheld by devotion. At present it is especially needed. If yesterday's confusion seemed enormous, what can one say of tomorrow's? I have already prepared you for the growth of Armageddon, and you know that the black wings of darkness will not withstand the Fiery Sword. Be not astonished�the Battle increases!
