LORD SANAT KUMARA, the BIBLICAL “ANCIENT OF DAYS” – HIS STORY & MUSICAL KEYNOTE
Learning about Lord Sanat Kumara gives us a background for thinking about our planet Earth. I am using Excerpts from A.D.K. Luk’s LAW OF LIFE & TEACHINGS BY DIVINE BEINGS to tell the story of Lord Sanat Kumara’s service to Earth.
Knowing the story makes his musical keynote more meaningful
Maha Chohan speaks, channeled by A.D.K. Luk in 1957:
“A Sun Council was called when the Earth had reached its lowest ebb, when there seemed no possibility for it to contribute to the Light of the solar system. At this Conference among the Suns of this galaxy, it was decided that the planet Earth would be returned to primal essence because it was contributing no Light, no music, no constructive radiation to the universe of which it was a part. It was thought best to dissolve this planet, conserving life and returning the substance of the planet itself for re-polarization into the heart of Helios and Vesta. As conservation of life is an essential part of the Cosmic Law.
Lord Sanat Kumara was One among other great and Divine Beings from other stars, Suns and universes Who attended the Council. He went home to His planet determined in His heart to help the Earth. He did not sit in His courtyard surrounded by the magnificent Beings, the Kumaras, the Angels, Devas and His own people, in proximity to His beloved Divine Complement, Venus and just think it was too bad to see the Earth and all that belonged to it being discarded. Sanat Kumara, even One of the greatest of the mystics, had learned the Law of balance as well as Love and He pondered within Himself what He might do to sustain the Earth’s place in this system. He asked for the opportunity to give to the Earth His radiation and Light and to act through His developed capacities of thought, feeling and action, as Lord of the World for the Earth. This request was granted.
When He returned Home to His Star, Venus, He made the announcement of His offer and many of those who loved Him well offered to precede Him to Earth and prepare a suitable dwelling for Him. Beloved Lady Venus made the great sacrifice when She felt the great affinity to His feeling world, His desire to come to Earth. She made the sacrifice of representing Father and Mother for the planet Venus, to give Him freedom. Also an activity that took life, energy and work is magnetizing the feminine and masculine aspects to keep an entire planetary evolution progressing for millions of years.
Then those who loved Sanat Kumara so well asked that they might come and create a city fitting for Him on this planet Earth. They were accepted and were escorted into the upper atmosphere of Earth. They abided within the realms of Light under the loving care and hospitality of the Lords of the Second Ray until such time as conditions could be prepared for their first embodiment. They entered the actual gates of birth and were born on Earth a full 900 years before their Lord should come.”
Ascended Master Morya — 1952
“The greatest always being the servant of the lesser, their Cosmic Lord Himself, Sanat Kumara, and three of the Kumaras offered to lead the missionary Band. The Kumaras, with thirty loyal volunteers, prepared for their descent into the atmosphere of the planet Earth knowing full well that They must remain until enough of the children of Earth had awakened to the need of the hour and of the Cosmic Fiat that the Earth must emit more Light. These Earth children, then, must enter into the centuries of training, self control and discipline required to become Lords of their own heart Flame and through that Flame release the Kumaras from their service of Love and Light.
Those pupils of the Kumaras who volunteered to come and build a fitting place for Them, bade goodbye to their families, their homes, their planet and stood in the solemn Court of the Lords of Karma of Earth. This great Council accepted in gratitude the entrance of these souls into the wheel of the Earth’s evolution. Each was bound to the wheel of embodiment, Earth experience, and death for so long as the Earth should need their borrowed Light, and none might be released until the hour came when the Earth’s own Light was sufficient to pass the Cosmic Law’s demand. Only then could these volunteer Beings be cut from this wheel and assume their rightful evolution upon their sweet planet of Love. Has there ever been such a supreme sacrifice? Not for one lifetime, one embodiment of suffering, one death, one birth, but for millions of rounds.
The first duties of these volunteers was to prepare a place for the coming of their Lord. When each soul was bound round by the forgetful bands of Earth’s magnetism and entered into birth, only his burning love remained to light his way. Yet each was enabled in those early days, before the wearisome journey had dulled the glow of the spiritual fire, to remember his purpose sufficiently to find his brother pilgrims and unite in the preparation of the Home for Sanat Kumara, as He was to remain in the atmosphere of Earth. This great preparation, taking hundreds of years, is known as the Building of Shamballa.”
Lord Maha Chohan — 1957 & Ascended Master Morya — 1956
“The founding of Shamballa is the most marvelous activity of practical work, well done. Day in and day out, life in and life out they held the vision of the beautiful city on Venus and they with their hands and workmanship coupled vision with action and created the beautiful White Island, so called because most of its Temples are white, particularly the great one of Sanat Kumara. They used the most beautiful materials that the Earth could offer to duplicate the Shamballa on Venus. This they did, although more than once their entire numbers were wiped out by the savage hordes (who were the laggards) that swept over them while engrossed at their work. They built that beautiful carved bridge over the Gobi Sea of blue waters. It was not still and sanded as it is today, but swiftly moving waters. The bridge over which the pilgrims seeking more Light might pass into the sacred Precincts of the Temples. (Remnants of this bridge may still be seen beneath the shifting sands of the Gobi Desert which, through cataclysmic action, was temporarily changed from blue water to desert land.)
They built among an Earth people who had sunk very low in consciousness and they had to breathe in the breath of all those in embodiment and take care that they did not also breathe in the contamination, because if they did it would have clouded over the vision of their City. All over the world they wrought by the sweat of the brow and not in mystic chariot, the tremendous pieces of marble and the various other heavy stones that formed the mighty edifaces. Some among them who were powerful in the use of magnetization helped them in the erecting of some of these great stones, tons in weight. All along the way the vision was coupled by active work, until that day when the Lemurian Pole Star told, who were able to be cognizant of the event, that the Kumaras were coming. Those who had come before were grateful indeed that they had completed through all those centuries a fitting Home for Sanat Kumara.”
Sanat Kumara — 1953
“I have left Venus before. This is not the first planet which has worn the mantle of My Love. I stood on other orbs, with other evolutions, and I was returned Home victorious in every case. Sometimes one lifestream developing enough Light in his or her heart to pay My ransom. Sometimes an entire evolution developing that radiation required to meet the Cosmic Law’s demand. It is not numbers but quality that determines the radiation of Light required to sustain the place of an individual in its evolution, to sustain the place of a planet in a planetary scheme.
The Light of the world is but a quality of feeling that can be generated individually and sustained to a point where the aura, the inner bodies and the atmosphere radiate the pure Light from the Three-fold Flame which is within the heart.”
Those of us now incarnated on Earth have come to help create a new stage in Earth’s evolution–the NEW AQUARIAN GOLDEN AGE. In the words of Lord Sanat Kumara: “We live but to love life free.”
