Master El Moryah – Chohan of Blue Flame 

For western esotericians ascended Master El Morya is the Chohan of God’s Blue Ray of Protection, Power, Faith, and the Will of God. He was embodied or focused as the Patriarch Abraham and as King Arthur of the Camelot Sagas. El Morya, Chohan of the first, blue ray of Divine Will and Power helps individuals to recognise their own Divine Will and to connect with our God (Brahman, Elohim) and God Selves. El Moryah teaches us trust and courage and to move away from fear, which prevents us from thinking clearing and from accessing our intuition. With faith and trust we can connect with our Divine Mission and life purpose and move forward with self-confidence and courage. Alternative Names are: Bapu, Mahatma of the Himavat, Master M, Himavant, Mahatma. 

El Moryah works with leaders and rulers and with people in positions of authority, helping them to lead with discernment . As Master of the Council of Darjeeling, he teachers leaders in the ways of Divine Power, with many of the world’s statesman joining him during sleep time at his etheric retreat in Darjeeling. Many of his past embodiments show life times of total devotion to God, which on several occasions lead to his death. Many life times were also as powerful leaders, but where he attempted to be fair to his people. He is a strict and exacting teacher, expecting hard work, obedience and self-discipline from his students – yet he also has a witty and quick sense of humour.

El Moryah position(s) in the Spiritual Hierarchy: Chohan of the First Ray of Divine Power, Master of the Brothers of the Diamond Heart, Chief of the Darjeeling Council. Divine Ray and Flame are: Flame of God’s Will, First or Blue Ray or Flame of Divine Will and Power. Divine Qualities are: Power, Goodwill, Faith. El Moryah is one of those great hearts that strove to unite and lead nations to spiritual oneness as Himavant, and as Henoch or Metatron, again as Chandragupta Maurya, and focust in King Arthur and again as Akbar the Great. As focusing in Abraham, he was the great father presence to two entire nations – both the Jewish and Muslim faiths claim him as father. 

In any lifetime where we have known him, the spirit of El Morya has inspired us with his nobility, his integrity, his untiring dedication to bring the goodwill and vision to mankind, and his ability to hold us to our higher potential – regardless of how nonsensically we are behaving. Now we can know his heart as the loving father who has a deep concern and love for our spiritual progress. El Moryah represents the Godly attributes of courage, certainty, power, forthrightness, self-reliance, dependability, faith and initiative. These are the qualities of the Father principle—the statesman, the executive, the ruler. Through many embodiments El Moryah has worn the crown of authority, ruling many kingdoms wisely and well because he ably outpictured essential first ray flame virtues. His rulership has not been that of a dictator, demanding that his subjects submit to his human will. Rather, his interpretation of government is “God over men” and his concept of true statesmen is “God’s overmen.” He inspires illumined obedience to the holy will and power of God. 

El Morya Khan – 19th century manifestation 

In the 1800s, this spiritual being embodied as the Rajput prince El Morya Khan. He retired to the mountain fastness of the Himalayas with his spiritual brothers Koot Hoomi Lal Singh (Kuthumi) and Djwal Khul, to pursue spiritual adeptship and not stop short of the spiritual victory. Under the loving and disciplining gaze of his own Master, El Morya, as the Master M, along with Kuthumi, as the Master KH, sponsored the Theosophical Society. Their famous instructions are now on file with the British Museum in London. At the close of the nineteenth century, Master El Morya physically ascended and is known today as the Ascended Master El Moryah. 

Little actual factual detail is known of the life of El Morya Khan. It is understood that he was born as the Rajput prince El Morya Khan during the 19th century, in the Indian class of warriors and rulers esteemed for their courage and honour. For many decades he held an authoritative position in Indian affairs. He was one of the most renowned of the Tibetan mahatmas, known as Master M or “Mahatma of the Himavat” or “Himachala Raja”. 

EL Morya retired to the Himalayan mountains with his spiritual brothers Koot Hoomi Lal Singh (Kuthumi) and Djwal Khul to pursue spiritual adeptship and for the most part, preferred to remain unidentified by the outer world. Together they embarked on the mission to bring eastern mystical understandings and teachings into the western world, mainly through personal letters, rather than actual appearances. Through Madame Helena Blavatsky they try brought occult mysteries to a larger body of mankind and helped establish the Theosophical Society.

Through the Theosophy Society, these Masters not only brought the ancient teaching of Hinduism and Buddhism to the west but they also brought about the rebirth in India of its ancient history, language and national spirit. This later inspired the “Home Rule” movement that brought Gandhi back to India and the non-violent social movement that eventually led to India’s independence. This in turn inspired the home rule movement in Ireland. In 1898 El Morya ascended in this life and left his physical incarnation. He continued his work from spirit as the Ascended Master El Morya althought in the East is better known as Mahatma Himawant, Metathron or Hermes Trismegistos. 

In the first half of the twentieth century, El Morya as Master M worked little with Helena and Nicholas Roerich to found under His inspirations the Agni Yoga Society. He dictated several books in English and Russian, in order to bridge the tyranny spreading across Europe in the first half of the twentieth century. Nicholas and Helena Roerich began the movement of Pax Cultura to protect world culture, art, architecture and music from the ravages of war. The mystical paintings of Nicholas Roerich open our eyes to a world of beauty, meaning and mystery as they depict our Teachers, our spiritual heritage, our history and our future. 

El Moryah as Henoch and Metatron 

Metatron (Hebrew מטטרון) or Mattatron (a differentiation of Metatron) is an archangel in Judaism. According to Jewish medieval apocrypha, he is Enoch, ancestor of Noah, transformed into an angel. There are no references to Metatron as an angel in the Jewish Tanakh or Christian scriptures (New and Old Testament); however, Genesis 5:24 is often cited as evidence of Enoch’s ascension into an angel – “Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.” Although he is mentioned in a few brief passages in the Talmud, Metatron appears primarily in medieval Jewish mystical texts and other post-scriptural esoteric and occult sources, such as the Books of Enoch – 1 Enoch, 2 Enoch, and 3 Enoch. In Rabbinic tradition, he is the highest of the angels and serves as the celestial scribe. 

Metatron is identified with the term “lesser YHVH”, which is the Lesser Tetragrammaton, in a Talmudic version as cited by the Karaite scholar Kirkisani. The word Metatron is numerically equivalent to El Shaddai (God) in Hebrew gematria; therefore, he is said to have a “Name like his Master.”  Metatron is also mentioned in the Pseudepigrapha, most prominently in the Hebrew Merkabah Book of Enoch, also called 3 Enoch or Sefer Hekhalot (Book of [the Heavenly] Palaces). The book describes the link between Enoch, son of Jared (great grandfather of Noah) and his transformation into the angel Metatron. His grand title “the lesser YHVH” resurfaces here. Metatron says, “He [the Holy One]… called me, ‘The lesser YHVH’ in the presence of his whole household in the height, as it is written, ‘my name is in him.’” (12:5, Alexander’s translation). The narrator of this book, supposedly Rabbi Ishmael, tells how Metatron guided him through Heaven and explained its wonders. Here Metatron is described in two ways: as a primordial angel (9:2–13:2) and as the transformation of Enoch after he was assumed into Heaven. 

While this identification of Metatron with Enoch is not to be found in the Talmud itself, the connection is assumed by some of the earliest kabbalists. There also seem to be two Metatrons, one spelled with six letters (מטטרון), and one spelled with seven (מיטטרון). The former may be the transformed Enoch, Prince of the Countenance within the divine palace; the latter, the Primordial Metatron, an emanation of the “Cause of Causes,” specifically the tenth and last emanation, identified with the earthly Divine Presence. Mahatma Himavant or Himachala Raja is very easy identified as Prophet Enoch ( Arabic: إدريس‎ ʼIdrīs) and Metatron. Enoch is described as the greatx4 grandson of Adam (through Seth) (Genesis 5:3-18), the son of Jared, the father of Methuselah, and the great-grandfather of Noah. The text reads—uniquely in the Generations—that Enoch “walked with God: and he was not; for God took him”, (Genesis 5:22-29) suggesting he did not experience the mortal death ascribed to Adam’s other descendants. 

These recount of three Books of Enoch how Enoch is taken up to Heaven and is appointed guardian of all the celestial treasures, chief of the archangels, and the immediate attendant on God’s throne. He is subsequently taught all secrets and mysteries and, with all the angels at his back, fulfils of his own accord whatever comes out of the mouth of God, executing His decrees. Much esoteric literature like the 3rd Book of Enoch identifies Enoch as the Metatron, the angel which communicates God’s word. In consequence, Enoch was seen, by this literature, and the Rabbinic kabbala of Jewish mysticism, as having been the one which communicated God’s revelation to Moses, in particular, the dictator of the Book of Jubilees. This is true story of Hermes Trismegistos or Mahatma Himavat, the Himachala Raja, the Parvati Devi father.  

Metatron is one of the most important angels in the heavenly hierarchy. He is a member of a special group that is permitted to look at God’s countenance, an honor most angels do not share. In the literature, Metatron is often referred to as “the Prince of the Countenance.” The myths of Metatron are extremely complicated, and at least two separate versions exist. The first version states he came into being when God created the world, and immediately assumed his many responsibilities. The second claims that he was first a human named Enoch, a pious, good man who had ascended to Heaven a few times, and eventually was transformed into a fiery angel.  

The great Angels (Devas) Gabriel and Michael lead Enoch straight to God’s Throne. Sitting next to God (Yahvah), Enoch was instructed in wisdom, and using his skills as a scribe, prepared three hundred and sixty-six books. When he learned everything, a most significant thing happened. God revealed to him great secrets – some of which are even kept secret from the angels! These included the secrets of Creation, the duration of time the world will survive, and what will happen after its demise. At the end of these discussions, Enoch returned to earth for a limited time, to instruct everyone, including his sons, in all he learned. After thirty days, the angels returned him to Heaven. 

And then, in the Heavens, the divine transformation took place. Additional wisdom and spiritual qualities caused Enoch’s height and breadth to become equal to the height and breadth of the earth. God attached thirty-six wings to his body, and gave him three hundred and sixty-five eyes, each as bright as the sun. His body turned into celestial fire – flesh, veins, bones, hair, all metamorphosed to glorious flame. Sparks emanated from him, and storms, whirlwind, and thunder encircled his form. The angels dressed him in magnificent garments, including a crown, and arranged his throne. A heavenly herald proclaimed that from then on his name would no longer be Enoch, but Metatron, and that all angels must obey him, as second only to God. 

In art, Metatron is often depicted guarding the Tree of Life, so El Moryah, Mahatma Himavant is very Life Master. Metatron is known as the angel of life. He guards the Tree of Life and writes down the good deeds people do on Earth, as well as what happens in heaven, in the Book of Life (which is also known as the akashic record). Metatron is traditionally considered to be the spiritual brother of archangel Sandalphon, and both were humans on Earth before ascending to heaven as angels (Metatron is said to have lived as the prophet Enoch, and Sandalphon as the prophet Elijah. People sometimes ask for Metatron’s help to discover their personal spiritual power and learn how to use it to bring glory to God and make the world a better place. In the Torah and the Bible, the prophet Enoch lives an extraordinarily long life, and then is taken up into heaven without dying, as most humans do: “All of Enoch’s days were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, and was no more, because God had taken him” (Genesis 5:23-24). Metatron energy colors: green and pink stripes or blue. Metatron or El Moryah is really immortal King of Angels from the prophethood. 

Darjeeling Council Mandala

El Morya is the hierarch of the Temple of Good Will in the etheric plane over the city of Darjeeling, India, in the foothills of the Himalayas. This retreat is a mandala and a forcefield that is used by the solar hierarchies to release increments of cosmic energy to the planet. Together with the members of the Darjeeling Council, the Brothers of the Diamond Heart who serve at this retreat under El Morya assist mankind by organizing, developing, directing, and implementing the will of God as the foundation for all successful organized movements. The diamond shining mind of God is the very heart of any endeavor. Public servants, world and community leaders, and holders of public office are schooled between embodiments and in their finer bodies during sleep to renew the charge of Morya’s thrust for a purpose and to refresh their understanding of the intricacies of the will of God in politics, in religion, in business, and in education. Ascended and unascended masters and their chelas meet at Chohan Morya’s retreat frequently to discuss national and international problems and the means to their solution. 

El Moryah (Master Morya) better known as Mahatma Himavant or Guru Himavan, it has been asserted, was incarnated as the first emperor of India, historically known as Chandragupta Maurya. He reigned over the Mauryan Empire from 322-298 B.C., during the time of Alexander the Great. Chandragupta Maurya defeated the armies of Alexander which tried to invade India under the Greek General Seleucus. He fortified India’s defense system and made the country strong and prosperous. Due to his successful military exploits, the title of Vikramaditya was bestowed upon him. 

In the historical references of the dynasty of the Moryas and also the Bhavisha Purana from which source the Theosophical Society also drew their knowledge it is clearly mentioned that El Morya (Maurya) was the son of the emperor Samudragupta (also known as Shigra), and in turn Morya’s son Bindusar, who gave birth to the emperor Ashoka whose symbol of the “Ashoka Chakra” adorns the flag of India even today. This line of kings were of high family and spiritual lineage and were the receiver of the holy ashes of the Buddha at Pipalivahan.

Morya, one of the “Masters of the Ancient Wisdom” spoken of in modern Theosophy and in the Ascended Master Teachings is considered one of the “Ascended Masters.” He is also known as the “Chohan of the First Ray” – The Ray of Divine Will and Power (Iccha Shakti). Morya first became known to the modern world when H. P. Blavatsky declared that He and Master Koot Hoomi were her guides in establishing the Theosophical Society. Blavatsky wrote that Masters Morya and Koot Hoomi belonged to a group of highly developed humans known as the Great White Brotherhood. Although Master Morya’s personality has been depicted in some detail by various theosophical authors, critics point out that there is little evidence that Blavatsky’s Masters, including Morya, ever existed. There being a dearth of material evidence to prove anything with certainty, this article focuses on presenting the narratives about Morya given by various believers in his existence, beginning from the time of his alleged contacts with 19th-century theosophists.

Some of the best known incarnations that Morya is said to have had include: Mauryagupta (1400 B.C.) and Akbar The Great – Mogul Emperor. Ancient Master Morya as Himavant at the Wedding ‘Muhurat’ of His daughter, Himavan declared: ‘I, Himavan of the Gotra and clan of Mountains have the greatest privilege of offering the hand of my daughter Devi Parvati (Umadevi) to Parama Siva in the august presence of Brahma and Vishnu. 

Another Morya incarnation is recognized as Shams-i-Tabrīzī or Shams al-Din Mohammad (born 1185, died ca. 1248) was a Persian Muslim, who is credited as the spiritual instructor of Mewlānā Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhi, also known as Rumi and is referenced with great reverence in Rumi’s poetic collection, in particular Diwan-i Shams-i Tabrīzī (The Works of Shams of Tabriz). Tradition holds that Shams taught Rumi in seclusion in Konya for a period of forty days, before fleeing for Damascus. The tomb of Shams-i Tabrīzī has recently nominated to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Morya Gosavi or Moraya Gosavi (Marathi: मोरया गोसावी, Morayā Gosāvi) alias Moroba Gosavi is a prominent saint of the Hindu Ganapatya lineage, which considers the elephant-faced god Ganesha as the Supreme Being. The tomb of Morya Gosavi at Chinchwad attracts many Ganesha devotees. Morya Gosavi is considered the chief spiritual progenitor of the Ganapatyas and described as the “most famous devotee” of Ganesha. While Yuvraj Krishan places Morya Gosavi in the 13th-14th century, RC Dhere places him in the 16th century.  Paul B. Courtright and Anne Feldhaus date him to 1610-59. The Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation dates him to c. 1330 to 1556. His marriage year is given as 1470 and his son’s birth corresponds to 1481. Encyclopedia of Religion dates his death to 1651. Various legends associate Morya Gosavi with Humayun (1508–1556), Shahaji (1594–1665) and his son Shivaji (1627–1680). His memorial temple has an inscription records that it was started in 1658-9. Morya Gosavi lived during three ages… 

Akbar also known as Shahanshah Akbar-e-Azam or Akbar the Great (14 October 1542  – 27 October 1605), was the third Mughal Emperor. He was of Timurid descent; the son of Emperor Humayun, and the grandson of the Mughal Emperor Zaheeruddin Muhammad Babur, the ruler who founded the Mughal dynasty in India. At the end of his reign in 1605 the Mughal empire covered most of the northern and central India. He is most appreciated for having a liberal outlook on all faiths and beliefs and during his era, culture and art reached to zenith as compared to his predecessors. Akbar was thirteen years old when he ascended the Mughal throne in Delhi (February 1556), following the death of his father Humayun. Akbar’s reign significantly influenced art and culture in the country. He was a great patron of art and architecture. 

Emperor Akbar began a series of religious debates where Muslim scholars would debate religious matters with Hindus, Jains, Zoroastrians and Portuguese Roman Catholic Jesuits. He treated these religious leaders with great consideration, irrespective of their faith, and revered them. King Akbar Morya not only granted lands and money for the mosques but the list of the recipients included a huge number Hindu temples in north and central India, Christian churches in Goa and a land grant to the newly born Sikh faith for the construction of a place of worship. The famous Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab is constructed on the same site. 

Mahatma Himavant – The Oldest El Moryah Life 

Himavat (Himavant-) in reality is the ancient Hindu God of snow and mountains, a personification of the Himalayan mountains. Himavat fathered the more prominent Parvati and Ganga, wife of Shiva and river goddess respectively. His wife and queen consort is vedic Mena or Menaka, the god Brahma daughter. Sanskrit himavant- translates to “having much snow”. Sanskrit himá “frost, snow” is cognate to Latin hiems “winter” from PIE ghyem-. Mount Kailas: since time immemorial, most of the people of the East have believed that somewhere in the Himalayan massif, between China and India, stood a sacred mountain: the navel of the earth, the axis of the universe. From its summit flowed a mighty river which fell into a lake, from which stemmed the great rivers of Asia. This was the holiest of mountains, revered by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains as the home of their gods and angels. In metaphysical terms it was Meru or Tise; in its earthly manifestation it was Kailas, the crystal, or Kang Rinpoche, jewel of the snows. The swastika mountain.

The Himavanta or Himmavanta (Himapan, Himmapan, or Himaphan in Thai) is a legendary forest which surrounds the base of Mount Meru in Hindu mythology. It is said to be the home of an assortment of mythical creatures, such as the naga, the kinnara and the garuda. “As the dew is dried up by the morning sun so are the sins of men dried up by the sight of the Himalaya, where Shiva lived and where the Ganga falls from the foot of Vishnu like the slender thread of a lotus flower. There are no mountains like the Himalaya, for in them are Kailas and Manasarovar.” — From the Skanda Purana.

The Aryans, migrating into India, called the Himalayas the ‘abode of snow’: Himavant, Himachala or Himalaya; in their cosmography, the core of the universe was mount Meru, that of the ‘blazing appearance’ – situated beyond and to the north of the Himalaya ranges – according to the Hindu epic Mahabharata ‘kissing the heavens by its height, shining like the morning sun and like a fire without smoke, immeasurable and unapproachable by men of manifold sins’. On the summit of Meru stood Swarga, heavenly city of Indra (the Vedic god of rain and storm) – a paradise ‘furnished with heavenly flowers and fruit and covered everywhere with bright gold dwellings’. The greatest gods dwelt in this city; lesser gods and saints had to be content with palaces further down the mountainside. Leading up to Meru itself was the pathway of the stars, a never-never land of fragrant trees and flowers where the souls of the dead awaited rebirth. Now, the Mahabharata and its stodgier cousin, the Ramayana, are dated to about 500 BC; in them appears also mention of mount Kailas (then a lesser holy mountain not associated with Meru) and also a lake called Manasarovar appears in a line of the Ramayana ie ‘the lake Manasa swollen with water on the arrival of the rains’.

As the Aryans pushed into India, they began to settle around the vital river Ganga (whose shores, in the present day, shelter a third of India’s population). They celebrated the divinity of this vital river in the form of a mother goddess, Ganga Mai, daughter of the Himalayas; to die by her banks and be cast into her muddy waters was to be delivered direct to Heaven; even to dip oneself three times under her surface was to be cleansed of all sins, emerging reborn. Thus the believer, even now, comes down to the Ganga soon after dawn, and immersing himself fully three times, cups his hands and three times offers water to the rising sun. 

Many things and strange theories and false interpretations about Master El Moryah (El Morya, Maurya) we may hear. But the most important facts that Master El Moryah is better known as ancient Mahatma Himavant (King Himavant, Himavat) and very well described in Shiva Purana as Mountain King, Himachala Raja is never said. Master Himavant called El Morya on the West is Himalayan Ancient King, the Lord Shiva‘s low-father. Important thing that this Mahatma is known as Vajrasattva is very hard to find too. Such is Western spirituality, New Age. What is very important is loosed, but fantasmagories are ‘proved’. 

Menaka (Mena Devi) and Himavat (Master Morya) had produced three daughters, all of whom were called to brahmaloka to determine which one might be able to carry Shiva’s seed and bear the child who would slay a terrible demon then menacing the three worlds. The eldest two were both deemed incapable of this, even after extended tapas, and were cursed for their presumption.
