About the Great Brotherhood of Light
Welcome and Introduction
Welcome to this section on the Great Brotherhood of Light! Here, we would like to share with you our yet limited knowledge of a wonderful body of highly advanced souls who are the inspiration of this website and willingly guide us through the troubled situations of the world today.
For over a century, the Great Brotherhood of Light has attempted to convey the Ageless Wisdom, long accepted in the East, to the western world.
In the 1830's the Lords Kuthumi and Hilarion launched the Spiritualist movement designed to enlighten the western world, gripped in the fear and pall of death, that there is indeed no death. People in the Far East and India already accepted this fact for centuries while those of indigenous societies possessed a natural gift to communicate with the dead.
The only way to convince the concrete western mind that there is no death was to have them speak directly to the dead. Mediums such as the Fox sisters and later Estelle Roberts (and Red Cloud) and Arthur Ford (and Fletcher) taught a skeptical population that there is indeed no death and allowed them to communicate with their loved ones on the other side. Even a very skeptical Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle became an advocate of Spiritualism after he was able to communicate through a medium with his beloved son who died in World War I. He traveled throughout the world during his post Sherlock Holmes days lecturing on spiritualism.
While Spiritualism was taking form and working its way into the mainstream of western thinking, Helena P. Blavatsky appeared on the scene first seemingly as another Spiritualist medium. After Henry Steel Olcott met her in New York, he observed that there was something much deeper to her "cover" as another Spiritualist medium. As the two collaborated and received direct instruction from the Masters Kuthumi, El Morya, Djwal Khul, and Sanctus Germanus, they published Isis Unveiled , a work that shook the foundations of religious thinking of that time and revealed that the basis of all religions on earth, no matter where or in what form they existed, found their origin in the ancient wisdom of the Great Brotherhood of Light. Thus, a modern embodiment of the Great Brotherhood of Light's teachings was initiated in the form of Theosophy during the last quarter of the 1800's until the present.
While Theosophy was taking root, the Great Brotherhood of Light opened yet another window of instruction through the writings of Alice A. Bailey, who received these incredible instructions clairaudiently from the Master Djwal Khul. These writings probed ever deeper into the teachings of the ancient wisdom of the Brotherhood and remain relevant until this day. The Arcane School continues to answer to the needs of those hungering for the truth.
Concurrently with the revelations of Theosophy and the Alice A. Bailey writings the Great Brotherhood of Light opened yet another window of light in the form of the "I AM" movement of Guy Ballard who received his revelations directly from the Great and Holy Master Sanctus Germanus during the tumultuous years of the two world wars. This was a short movement fraught with many earthbound problems yet it established in western thinking the position of the soul, the "I AM", the God within each and everyone. Mankind had so twisted this truth since the original teachings of the Masters Jesus and Gautama Buddha, that the "I AM" movement was able to re-seed this great, fundamental truth of the ancient wisdom in the western mind.
Following this movement came the Bridge to Freedom movement led by Geraldine Innocenti. Much of their work consisted of further revelations to mankind about the workings of the Great Brotherhood of Light and the teachings of specific Masters.
Then came the Summit Lighthouse movement of Mark and Elizabeth Prophet which did much in the 1960's and 70's to continue revealing the teachings of the Great Brotherhood of Light. The movement even established a University that focused on the teachings of the ancient wisdom.
Most recently, the Great Brotherhood of Light has sent forth what they call the "A-Team" comprised of mediums Sylvia Browne, George Anderson, James Van Praagh, and John Edward. These four were trained and launched to open the public's eyes to the world beyond and to remind the world-thought that there is no death. They receive wide media coverage and touch the hearts of many souls on earth.
In addition, the Great Brotherhood of Light has been behind the inspiration of many films recently, all with the touch of the other dimensions. This special genre of spiritual films are again designed to open the human mind to the great possibilities that are connected to us all in the other dimensions of the universe.
It is hoped that this website will provide yet another window of light through which further revelations and teachings of the Great Brotherhood of Light can reach the public, especially as we transit through a most difficult period in the earth's evolution.
In this section we'll cover in some detail the nature of the Great Brotherhood of Light, how this body communicates with their adepts, initiates and disciples on the earth plane, how their ideas infiltrate the thinking of the general public, and lastly, their constant conflict with their dark brethren.
What is the Great Brotherhood of Light?
The Great Brotherhood of Light is a body of very highly evolved beings who have attained to much higher levels than the ordinary human being and penetrated more deeply behind the veil of nature. They have realized, through initiation into the Mysteries of the Ageless Wisdom, higher states of existence. Such beings are called Masters, and those of the highest grade are believed to have attained the most sublime wisdom and knowledge that is possible for humanity in its present stage of evolution. As the spiritual Executives of God's plan, they oversee human and planetary affairs.
These Masters must not be confused with minor adepts, lamas, yogis, or hermits in India or Tibet, such as are described by ancient and modern travelers who have met them on rare occasions. The Masters of the Great Brotherhood of Light stand far higher in spiritual and intellectual knowledge. These Masters of the highest grade no longer need physical embodiment and retain a superior spiritual and intellectual wisdom devoted to the welfare of mankind.
The Great Brotherhood of Light is called by many names by many people. It is spoken of as the Spiritual Hierarchy, as the Abode of Light, as the Center where the Masters of the Wisdom are to be found, and as the Great White Lodge. Whatever name they are called, they act as Messengers of the Wisdom of God, Custodians of the truth as it is in Christ, and Those Whose task is to save the world, to impart the next revelation, and to demonstrate divinity. All of the world Scriptures bear witness to the existence of this center of spiritual energy.
(See "The Great Ones and the Way to Them" by Charles W. Leadbeater )
There are three levels of the Brotherhood as explained below:
Level I: The Hierarchy of Illumined Minds
The Hierarchy of Illumined Minds is a group whose telepathic powers enable them to be sensitive to the mind currents and to register the thoughts of those who personify the Mind of God, the Universal Mind. They have the power to work in and with all thought substance beyond our planetary body. These illumined ones carry out the ideas of the Divine Mind and are in telepathic rapport with the planetary Brotherhood responsible for the planetary conditions in the solar system, and comprise the Great Council Shamballa, a spiritual center beyond earth. They are in immediate telepathic rapport with each other.
Level 2: Hierarchy of the Masters
The Hierarchy of the Masters is an inner group of Masters, such as Sanctus Germanus, that works telepathically with their disciples in spirit and those in incarnation. Their main objective is to guide their incarnate disciples and initiates into the light of their own souls.
This Great Brotherhood of Light is thus a community of advanced souls who are swept by the desire to serve, urged by a spontaneous impulse to love, illumined by one pure Light, devotedly fused and blended into groups of serving Minds, and energized by one Life. Its Members are organized to carry out the Divine Plan for earth.
Level 3: Adepts, Initiates, Disciples in Incarnation who comprise New Group of World Server s
In every corner of the earth plane have been planted adepts, initiates, and disciples on various levels of advancement to carry out the good works of the Great Brotherhood of Light. When these individuals come to the realization of their mission on the earth plane, they devote themselves to unselfish service work with the Hierarchy of Masters in three ways:
1. In telepathic rapport with their Master and with other Masters with whom He is associated.
2. In power to communicate with each other at any time.
3. In sensitivity to the thoughts of humanity as a whole.
They comprise in a sense a miniature replica of the Brotherhood on earth. They are the working disciples of the world, the isolated initiates in the many world organizations and corporations. They are sometimes known as the New Group of World Servers.
These workers automatically respond to the telepathic sensitivity to the many Ashrams of the Masters and as this phenomenon gains a foothold on earth, it will lead to the recognition of a universal power and the state of mind of disciples of all degrees. This is being established quietly and without controversy at the present time. The revelation of unity through the power of thought is the glorious consummation of the work of the Brotherhood as all earthly adepts, initiates, and disciples, respond with the thought of oneness, of service and above all else of love.

How the Brotherhood Communicates with Their Disciples on the Earth Plane?
The Brotherhood must work through human instruments and thus the plan and the vision are subject to failure. But they never give up. If their message is received in a distorted or twisted manner, the enterprise is doomed. The Masters will just pick up from where they left off and try again with different instruments. In general, they contact humanity in the following manner:
First, the Great Brotherhood of Light, in accordance with laws of the Cosmic Cycles will cast into the minds of the so-called idealists who will form a movement or aggregation of thoughts. They choose a man or a group of men and sound forth into their minds some idea. The idea germinates and they soon embody it in other thoughts. As the idea gets transmitted to the dense material plane it loses a bit of its purity or wisdom as it becomes necessarily colored by the individuality of the thinker.
The concrete thinkers of the world pick up these thought-forms-- grasping the main outline of the idea - crystallize it and build it into more definite shape, into one that the general public can more easily apprehend. The thought-form has now reached the lower levels of the mental plane, and a further development becomes possible.
Those focused upon the astral plane seize upon it as desirable, transform it into an emotional appeal that becomes public opinion. The thought-form is now practically ready to take shape upon the physical plane, and we have the practical adaptation of an ideal to the needs of the physical life. It has been stepped down; it has lost much of its original beauty; it is not as pure and as lovely as when first conceived, and it is distorted from its original shape but it is, nevertheless, more adapted to public use and can be employed as a stepping-stone to higher things.
Second, human organizations then take hold of the ideal and implement it as they see fit. The Masters do not go any further with the ideas but leave the details of implementation to those on earth. To the disciple who is an organizer and transmitter of the Plan falls the work of filling in the details and of taking the necessary action. At this point, the disciple is subject to the same cosmic laws as his Masters in Their large endeavors. When he has to deal with people and manipulate the human equation, difficulties arise.
Disciples must know that humans working on his project fall into three groups:
a. Those who can sense the plan and are commissioned to work it out.
b. Those who can be used but who are blind to the greater issues.
c. Those who can sense nothing except those things that concern their own selfish interests.
The Masters can contact the first group and expect average success as they hear the sound and perceive parts of the Plan. As for the second group, the disciples of the world have to utilize them as best they can, always, of course guided by principle. The final group can only be used when necessary.
In order to sense the plan and the Master's guidance, the disciple must cultivate solitude. In solitude the rose of the soul flourishes; in solitude the divine self can speak; in solitude the faculties and the graces of one's higher self can take root and blossom in the physical personality. In solitude the Master can approach and impress upon the quiescent soul the knowledge that He seeks to impart, the lesson that must be learnt, the method and plan for work that the disciple must grasp. In solitude the sound is heard.
