Ascended Master Sanat Kumara

Lord Sanat Kumara is known as both The "Ancient of Days" (because he is millions of years old) and "The Youth of Sixteen Summers" (because despite his advanced age, he looks like he is 16 years old). Another of his titles is "The One Initiator" because as C. W. Leadbeater writes in the Masters and the Path, he performs the initiation ceremony for anyone who has reached the third level of spiritual initiation. He is thought to be the head of the Spiritual Hierarchy of Earth who dwells in Shamballah (also known as 'The City of Enoch'). According to the adherents to the Ascended Master Teachings, Shamballah is a floating city manifested on the etheric plane somewhere above the Gobi Desert in the borderlands of Mongolia. Many believe that Lord Sanat Kumara is the founder of the Great White Brotherhood, composed of Masters of the Ancient Wisdom and volunteers from other realms who have joined together to advance spiritual evolution on Earth.

Sanat Kumara was mentioned by Helena Blavatsky. She claimed he belonged to a group of beings, the "Lords of the Flame", whom Christian tradition has presented as Lucifer and the fallen angels. Sanat Kumara gained greater prominence when Blavatsky's close-friend and colleague Charles W. Leadbeater wrote that Sanat Kumara was the "King" or Lord of the World, and the head of the Great White Brotherhood of Mahatmas who had revealed the principles of theosophy. Later authors who draw from Theosophical teachings such as Alice Bailey and Elizabeth Clare Prophet have added further details. He is usually depicted as having the appearance of a 16-year-old boy, said to be the incarnation of the Will of the Logos, and purportedly possesses an unaging body not born of mortal woman.


According to the Alice A. Bailey material, Sanat Kumara has many assistants who help him in his arduous task of spiritually governing Earth as its presiding Regent. These include:

  • The Watcher (also called the Silent Watcher or the Great Silent Watcher), whose function it is to continually watch the Akashic records and download daily all the information on them relevant to the life waves of Earth and forward it to the Custodian of the Hall of Records (the Watcher is part of a special race of beings who fulfill this function that are posted on planets throughout the Cosmos)
  • The Lords of Karma - Alice A. Bailey mentioned three Lords of Karma but did not name them.
  • The Karmic Board, stated to have seven members: The Great Divine Director (1st ray), The Goddess of Liberty (2nd ray), Lady Master Nada (3rd ray), Cyclopea (4th ray), Pallas Athena (5th ray), Lady Master Portia (6th ray), and Kwan Yin (7th ray). The Karmic Board decides when souls that are between lives are to reincarnate again (if a disembodied soul desires to reincarnate somewhere or somewhen else than where they have been assigned, they must file an appeal with the Karmic Board - each person has to file an appeal to the member of the board that handles the appeals for their soul ray)
  • The Custodian of the Hall of Records (called the Keeper of the Scrolls in the Ascended Master Teachings), the being who is in charge of the Hall of Records, which is said to be an enormous administrative complex in Shamballa. This is where the records of everything that happens in everyone’s lives on Earth are kept. These records can be consulted by the Karmic Board if that soul makes an appeal before it.

Along with Maitreya and Gautama Buddha, Master Sanat Kumara participates in an annual ritual during the week of Wesak (the full moon coinciding with the birthday of the Buddha) during which Spiritual energy is focused with the intention of balancing humanity's energy.


In the Hindu religious text the Chandogya Upanishad, Sanat Kumara appears as a rishi. A shrine to Sanat Kumara which attracts and unites people of all religions and faiths is situated in the town of Kataragama, Sri Lanka. In Sanskrit, "Sanat Kumara" is "Eternal Youth." Sanat Kumara is said to reside in the most sublime center of our planet, Shamballa, the sahasrara of the world. The Kumara has several names, relating to the sahasrara centers of different Systemic Existences: At the Supra-Cosmic plane, he is called Sanatana; at the Cosmic plane, it is Subrahmanya; at the Solar plane, the Kumara is Sanaka; at the Planetary plane, it is Sanandana; and on this planet, it is Sanath Kumara. So Sanath Kumara is an aspect of Kumara that resides in Shamballa.

Scriptures, especially the Mahabharata, say that it is Sanat Kumara who comes down to help the Divine Plan of Creation, when Lord Krishna came to be. He was born to Lord Krishna as his son, and he was named Pradyumna. Sanat Kumara incarnates himself through the Divine Mother Rukmini as Pradyumna. On completion of his work, He again gets back to his original position and takes to the seat in Shambala as Sanath Kumara. These details are given in the last chapters of Mahabharata.
