Definitions for "Ascended Masters"
Twelve high vibrational, spiritual Beings sourced by the Maitreya energy, collectively operating through all of their aspects as the 9th density band of energies. They offer their wisdom and guidance, as they participate at this very high level of God consciousness. Traditionally, for convenience in communication, names have been assigned by humans to the Ascended Master energies, often reflecting their incarnational lifetimes. These powerful Beings are much greater than the Earth incarnations associated with them, which reflect only a tiny fraction of their energies. Each Ascended Master has chosen a dominant energetic quality to infuse into his or her particular range of experience. We call this the particular "Divine Virtue" of each of the Ascended Masters. They each have their own focus, expertise, and range of experience to offer. Based on our communications to date, our most appropriate "naming" of the Ascended Masters has resulted in the following listing: Ascended Masters Babaji, Buddha, El Morya, Hilarion, Krishna, Kuthumi, Lady Mary, Lady Nada, Lanto, Sananda, Serapis Bey and St. Germain. See each Ascended Master’s name for his/her dominant Divine Virtue description.
Realized souls not on the earth-plane in esoteric traditions.
Our elder brothers and sisters on the path of personal Christhood, the saints and adepts of East and West who have graduated from earth's schoolroom and reunited with God as Jesus demonstrated through the ritual of the ascension. They are referred to in Rev. 7 as the great multitude of saints "clothed with white robes" who stand before the throne of God.
