The Great and Holy Master Morya
Today the Master Morya stands as one of the five Masters of the Great Brotherhood of Light working with Sanctus Germanus to lead earth into the New Age. The Master Morya is one of the best known of the Eastern adepts whose origins can be traced back to Tibet. He now holds the office of Manu of the Sixth-Root Race, or the incarnating race of the past few decades.
He dwells, as does his Brother, the Master Kuthumi, at Shigatse in the Himalayas, and is a well-known figure to the inhabitants of that far-away village. The houses in which they both dwell are close together, and much of their time is spent in the closest association. He is a man of tall and commanding presence, dark hair and beard and dark eyes, and might be considered stern were it not for the expression that lies in his eyes. He is pictured in the photo on the left behind Mme. Blavatsky.
He and his Brother, the Master Kuthumi, work almost as a unit, for the Master Kuthumi now holds the office of World Teacher formerly held by the Lord Maitreya, as the sixth root-race comes into being. As the Master Morya is upon the first Ray, that of Will or Power, his work largely concerns itself with the implementation of the plans through means of least resistance. He acts as the Inspirer of the statesmen of the world; he manipulates forces that will bring about the conditions desired for the furthering of racial evolution. On the physical plane, he influences those great national executives and international statesmen who have far vision. Certain of the great devas of the mental plane and groups of angels work with him on mental levels, to stimulate the lesser devas who vitalize thought-forms on earth, and thus keeping alive the guiding thought-forms that benefit the whole of humanity.
The Master Morya has a large body of European and American pupils under his instruction who work with many organizations of an esoteric and occult bent and with the politicians and statesmen of the world.
The Master Morya, like the other four Masters, is an ancient soul who elected many millennia ago to stay upon earth and dedicate themselves to furthering the evolution of mankind. Below we trace the enormous tasks he has accomplished for mankind over countless past lives, which culminated in the formation of the Theosophical Society before he took his ascension.
Pre-Piscean Age (Christian Era) Incarnations
The Master Morya, like his brethren in the Great Brotherhood of Light, is an ancient soul that has transited through countless incarnations. It is said his first appearance on earth dates back to around 600,000 BC and from that time to the most recent Piscean Dispensation (the past 2000 years) the great Master has ruled as king, warrior, and general over the establishment of the Atlantean civilization, its spread over the earth, and toward the end as Emperor of South Poseidonis, the last remnant of Atlantis.
During the thousands of years preceding the present Christian age, he has been Emperor of China, tribal king of the Inca civilization, Pharaoh of Egypt many times, various rulers in India. During one of his last Indian incarnations, he even had the privilege of hearing the Lord Gautama preach.
Of more meaning to us today are his incarnations during the last two thousand years, with the last one being the teacher and guide of both Mme. Blavatsky and Henry Steel Olcott, founders of the Theosophy Movement toward the end of the Nineteenth Century. Today he holds the Office of Chohan of the First Ray, the ray of Divine Power and Will. It is not surprising that after countless incarnations as ruler and king, he should be vested with this office, yet as the wielder of such power, his students remark about the softness in his eyes and the gentleness of his manner.
Let us explore his most recent incarnations as a means of understanding this great and ancient soul who lives among us even today.
The Master Morya as One of the Magi Priests
According to the Aquarian Gospel, the three Magi who followed the star of Bethlehem from Persia to Bethlehem were called Hor, Lun, and Mer. The fact that they traveled such a far distance from Persia to see the newborn king, frightened King Herod. Knowing Herod's thought, they warned the father Joseph (Sanctus Germanus) of King Herod's treachery.
These three were part of the Magi order, a Zoroastrian sect led by three chief Magi priests called Balthasar, Melchior, and Caspar. In those incarnations, Balthasar was said to be the Master Kuthumi; Melchior, the Master Morya; and Caspar, the Master Djwal Khul. According to the Aquarian Gospel, the chief Magis did not meet Jesus until He was an adult of twenty-four years old. Jesus had journeyed to India and spent several years there learning the ancient mysteries of the Brotherhood, and on his return to Nazareth, he stopped by Persia. The three Magis, Hor, Lun, and Mer, being clairvoyant, knew of his arrival and gave him a joyous welcome in the street and brought him to their home where they introduced him to Balthasar, Melchior, and Caspar.
When the seven came together, they sat in silence for seven days, for they knew that Jesus was also part of the Silent Brotherhood. When they heard Jesus' answers to their questions concerning contradictions in the Zoroastrian religion, they knew He was the great teacher.
The Magis bid Jesus farewell as He left them to continue his journey back to Nazareth. A few days later, while the six Magis were together, Jesus suddenly reappeared before them and declared that they were the first to witness his transmutation in the flesh, something that had been prophesied for later when he would appear before the twelve disciples after his crucifixion. So, as brothers of the Silent Brotherhood, the six Magis had a sneak preview of Jesus' transmutation.
It is said that during this incarnation, the three Chief Magis were given the option to ascend but they instead elected to stay on earth until they had finished bringing in the Theosophy movement in the late 1800's.
The Master Morya as King Arthur 6th Century AD
Centuries later, the Master Morya reincarnated as King Arthur under the tutelage of the mystic or magician Merlin (Sanctus Germanus). According to tradition, Merlin arranged for the conception of Arthur when King Uther Pendragon of Britain fell in love with Ygraine, a married woman. Merlin transformed King Uther into the likeness of Ygraine's husband, so that she would lie with him. Arthur was then conceived.
After Arthur was born, Merlin took him to a man named Hector to be raised as a commoner. After King Uther Pendragon died, Merlin notified the barons of Britain that God had established a test to determine the successor to the throne. In front of a cathedral, Merlin made appear a large stone topped with an anvil, in which a sword was embedded. Only the rightful future king of England would be able to withdraw the sword, and of course Arthur did so.
Because of his humble origins, Arthur overcame strong opposition from the British nobles to his royal claim, but eventually he was crowned. To help him in his task of leading Britain, he received a great sword, Excalibur, offered by a hand that rose mysteriously from a lake.
Under Merlin's guidance, Arthur expelled foreigners from Britain by undertaking a series of wars, conquests, and invasions. Britain then entered a long period of peace and security during which King Arthur established a kingdom based on justice, law, and morality. He held court at his castle at Camelot and instituted an order known as the Knights of the Round Table. The shape of the table ensures that all who sit around it are equal in status.
Eventually his realm crumbled, wrought by his own moral decay and external invasions. Arthur even ended up killing his illegitimate son Mordred, who tried to usurp his throne. Before dying, Mordred however inflicted mortal wounds on his father Arthur. Many versions of Arthurian legend say that Arthur will someday return, when he is again needed by Britain.
We see in this incarnation the attempt of the Brotherhood to set up the beginnings of a just society and system of fair governance but like all such enlightened ideas, they are subject to attack and denigration before the forces of evil, the Dark Forces.
The Master Morya as Sir Thomas More (1478-1535)
As the English statesman and writer, Thomas More, the Master Morya took a firm religious stance against King Henry VIII that cost him his life.
More was born in London on February 7, 1478, and educated at Canterbury Hall (now Christ Church), University of Oxford. He studied law after leaving Oxford, but his primary interests were in science, theology, and literature. During his early manhood, he wrote comedies and spent much time in the study of Greek and Latin literature. In 1499 he decided to become a monk and subjected himself to the discipline of the Carthusians. Four years later More gave up this plan, and in 1504 he entered Parliament.
One of his first acts was to urge a decrease in a proposed appropriation for King Henry VII. In revenge, the king imprisoned More's father and did not release him until a fine was paid and More himself had withdrawn from public life. After the death of the king in 1509, More became active once more. In 1510, he was appointed undersheriff of London.
During the next decade, More attracted the attention of King Henry VIII, and frequently served on diplomatic missions to the Low Countries. In 1518 he became a member of the Privy Council; he was knighted in 1521. Two years later, More was made Speaker of the House of Commons. During this period,Henry VIII made More one of his favorites and often sought his company for philosophical conversations.
More became Lord Chancellor in 1529, and as such he became the first layman to hold the post. His fortunes changed, however, when he refused to support Henry's request for a divorce from Catherine of Aragón. More's religious scruples made him unwilling to sanction any defiance of papal authority. He resigned from the chancellorship in 1532 and withdrew from public notice.
The king resented the attitude of his former friend and had him imprisoned in 1534. More was tried the following year; even then he refused to take an oath of supremacy, asserting that Parliament did not have the right to usurp papal authority in favor of the king. Condemned for his stand, More was decapitated on July 7, 1535. In 1935 the Roman Catholic Church canonized him.
More is best known for Utopia (1516), a satirical account of life on the fictitious island of Utopia. On this island, the interests of the individual are subordinate to those of society at large, all people must do some work, universal education and religious toleration are practiced, and all land is owned in common. These conditions are contrasted with those of English society, to the substantial disadvantage of the latter. Utopia was the forerunner of a series of similar books. Among the best-known of these are Candide by the French author and philosopher Voltaire, Erewhon by the English novelist Samuel Butler, and A Dream of John Ball by the English poet and artist William Morris.
The Master Morya as the Mughal Emperor Akbar (1542-1605)
El Morya as the third Mughal Emperor of India (1556-1605), Akbar, was generally considered the true founder of the Mughal Empire which was to unite and rule the Indian subcontinent up to 1858. The son of Emperor Humayun, he was born in Umarkot, Sind (now in Pakistan), and succeeded to the throne at the age of 13. He first ruled under a regent, Bairam Khan, who recaptured for the young emperor much of the territory usurped at the death of his father. In 1560, however, Akbar took the government into his own hands, for he realized that he had to gain Hindu acceptance and cooperation to be the successful ruler of any Indian empire. He won the allegiance of the Rajputs, the most belligerent Hindus, by a shrewd blend of tolerance, generosity, and force; he himself married two Rajput princesses.
Having thus secured the Hindus, he further enlarged his realm by conquest until it extended from Afghanistan to the Bay of Bengal and from the Himalayas to the Godâvari River. The Mughal Empire was to endure until 1858.
Akbar's supreme achievement was to establish an efficient administrative system that held the empire together and stimulated trade and economic development. He also promulgated a new religion, the Dini-Ilahi (Divine Faith), a blend of Islam, Brahmanism, Christianity, and Zoroastrianism. Although this attempt failed, Akbar surrounded himself with learned men of all faiths and, although illiterate himself, made his court a center of arts and letters.
His eldest son, Janhangir, succeeded him in 1605 and in turn sired Shah Jahan, the incarnation of the Master Kuthumi, who constructed the famous Taj Mahal. So El Morya as the Emperor Akbar was the grandfather of his close colleague, the Master Kuthumi, in this particular lineage.
The Master Morya as Thomas Moore (1779-1852)
The Master Morya then incarnated as an Irish poet of the romantic movement. As Thomas Moore, he was born in Dublin and educated at Trinity College, Dublin. He lived chiefly in London, except for travels to North America in 1803 and a sojourn in Paris after 1817.
Moore was also often quite provocative in political matters: for instance, his beautiful "Irish Melodies" are seeped in Irish nationalist lore, and his numerous tweaking satires on all sorts of traditional British mores and institutions, even when characteristically good-humored, still carry a sting. He pointedly delved into the political and economic issues of his day as a poet. He constantly needled politicians with his poems, that dealt with such issues as the Bullionist Controversy (gold standard), Public Debt, the Corn Laws (government subsidies that favored a certain class) and other economic issues of the day. These issues still plague us in the 21st Century where controversy on the public debt and the return to the gold standard still continue.
For example, at issue was the proposed resumption of payment in specie (i.e. to legally force banks to pay note bearers with gold bullion on demand). During the Napoleonic Wars, the threat of a French invasion around 1800 led to a run on the Bank of England and other banks. This had led the government to suspend the law requiring banks to honor their notes on demand with payment in gold. During the wars, this suspension continued - largely because it helped government borrowing to pay for the war effort. In the aftermath of the wars (approx. 1815-1825), as Britain entered into a slump, the issue of payment in specie arose again. Writers like Thornton and Ricardo vociferously opposed the continuation of the suspension and argued for resumption of payment in specie -- claiming that, if suspension continued, banks would wildly issue notes far above their store of gold bullion, which, they argued, would be highly inflationary (this was in the early days of the Quantity Theory).
Most of Moore's more romantic verse is characterized by a nostalgic songlike quality and deals with themes of patriotism and love. His first significant work, a translation of Odes of Anacreon (1800), catapulted him to fame. Lalla Rookh (1817), a four-part narrative poem set in exotic India, was also very popular. Irish Melodies (1807-34), a collection of 130 poems that included such famous titles as "The Last Rose of Summer," "The Harp That Once Through Tara's Halls," and "The Minstrel Boy," is considered his major work. Moore also wrote a satire, The Fudge Family in Paris (1818), a History of Ireland (1827), and a fine biography (1830) of his friend Lord Byron, whose memoirs he burned to protect the poet's reputation.
It is interesting to note here how, both as Thomas More and Thomas Moore, we find the Master Morya cast outside his usual First Ray role as king or governor. Instead, he lived as a critic of those in power, and in one case, lost his life for that. Again, as we have seen with our other Masters' lives, this is another example of karmic balance.
The Master Morya as Teacher to the Founders of The Theosophical Society
During the late 1800's the Master Morya took the form as a Rajput Prince, and for many decades held an authoritative position in Indian affairs. As an adept on the physical plane along with his close colleagues, the Masters Kuthumi and Djwal Khul, he took under his wing the two founders of the Theosophical Society, Mme. H.P. Blavatsky and Colonel Henry Steele Olcott, to train and guide them into the founding of what was to be the first of several embodiments of the Ancient Wisdom for Western Civilization.
In their New York apartment, the Master Morya, along with his helper devas, poured information through Mme. Blavatsky, information she herself did not and could not have known, to come out with Isis Unveiled, a work that challenged the world's religious establishments by revealing that ALL religions had their origin in the Ancient Wisdom of the Brotherhood. This of course caused great furor among Christians and much satisfaction among the Brethren of the Great Brotherhood of Light.
After the founders moved to India to establish the world headquarters of the Theosophical Society in Adyar, the Master Morya continued to guide them, appearing periodically in person or precipitating letters of advice. He was in constant telepathic contact with Mme. Blavatsky until her passing in 1891. From then he felt his service to that movement had finished and he took his ascension along with his close colleague the Master Kuthumi.
Today, the initiates and the disciples on the physical plane working in the Ashram of the Master Morya primarily promote synthesis in the world of politics and of government, while trying to preserve freedom in unity. They are working for a subjective synthesis of divergent ideas that will serve as the unifying energy that will bring about eventual peace and understanding on earth - a peace which will preserve individual and national cultures, but which will subordinate them to the good of the whole of humanity.
