The Keepers of the Flame Fraternity was founded in 1961 by Saint Germain as an organization of ascended masters and their chelas who vow to keep the flame of Life on earth and support the activities of the Great White Brotherhood in the establishment of their Community and Mystery School and in the dissemination of their teachings. Keepers of the Flame receive graded lessons in cosmic law dictated by the ascended masters to their messengers Mark and Elizabeth Prophet.

Purposes

El Morya speaks of the purposes of the fraternity:

In January 1961 I authorized the formation of the Keepers of the Flame Fraternity to be formed of a circle of devotees within The Summit Lighthouse who would give supreme allegiance to the flame of Life and to the Knight Commander, Saint Germain. I invited all who would pledge their support to this hierarch of the Aquarian age to participate in a worldwide endeavor to draw into the flame of the Holy Spirit sons and daughters of God who would come forward to claim their inheritance as joint heirs of the Christ consciousness....
To those who would give their support shoulder to shoulder to the Ascended Masters and to our Messengers Mark and Elizabeth Prophet for the promulgation of authentic teaching delivered unto them by the hierarchy, a special invitation was extended by the Knight Commander and me to affirm their sponsorship and their commitment by joining this outer fraternity of the Great White Brotherhood....
Those who responded are those who understood from deep within the soul the need to reconsecrate that flame through daily invocations and decrees made in the name of the I AM Presence and the Christed Self of all mankind—those who were eager to pursue the alchemy of the Spirit and to work directly with Saint Germain to precipitate the foundations of the golden age.
Those who have remained constant to their pledge have also understood the need to sponsor the teachings through regular financial support of our organization, The Summit Lighthouse. And over the years they have affirmed their loyalty and their oneness, their willingness to sacrifice, if necessary, lesser causes and concerns for the greater cause of the Brotherhood on earth, the cause to which their souls were already dedicated in heaven....
By the law of alchemy, as you give regular support—heart, head, and hand—to our cause through the Keepers of the Flame Fraternity, we are authorized to deliver into your hands instruction in cosmic law that has already laid the foundation for the ascension of not one but a number of Keepers of the Flame. These have both received and applied the monthly lessons written by the hierarchy, presenting step by step the certain knowledge of the law that leads each Keeper of the Flame on the path of initiation to the door of the I AM Presence who declares, “Behold, I AM the open door which no man can shut!”...
Keepers of the Flame are responsible to the spiritual board of the fraternity, which is headed by the Maha Chohan, the Keeper of the Flame, and the Knight Commander, Saint Germain. The board of directors is composed of the seven chohans, who direct various aspects of the unfoldment of the law both through the printed instruction and through the individual training which Keepers of the Flame are given in the etheric retreats of the Great White Brotherhood. A special Committee for Child Guidance formed for the preparation of parents of incoming souls and for the proper education of children is headed by the World Teachers, Jesus and Kuthumi, together with Mother Mary.
All who uphold the honor of the Keepers of the Flame and live according to the principles and precepts of the law find an acceleration of both inner and outer discipline which comes to them out of the living fount of joy and gratitude which the hierarchies of heaven hold for all upon earth who are willing to give a more than ordinary support to the cause that is paramount to the salvation (self-elevation) of humanity....
Those who have faithfully served the cause of the Brotherhood through their support of the Keepers of the Flame Fraternity have been amply rewarded with countless blessings. One and all, though sometimes unbeknownst to their outer consciousness, have had the opportunity to attend closed classes in the retreats of the masters, as well as at our quarterly conferences, and to balance an extraordinary amount of karma through their application to the violet flame multiplied by the sponsors of the fraternity (the members of the spiritual board), who enter into a direct and intimate relationship with each chela who is willing to make the commitment that is required.[1]
