'''Sanat Kumara''' is known as the Ancient of Days. He is the Great Guru of the seed of Christ throughout cosmos, hierarch of [[Venus (the planet)|Venus]] and one of the [[seven holy Kumaras]] (Lords of Flame who represent the seven rays on Venus). He initiates us on the path of the ruby ray, which he sets forth in his book ''The Opening of the Seventh Seal''.
He has held the hierarchical position of the [[Lord of the World]] since the darkest hours of earth’s history when her evolutions fell to the level of cavemen and lost contact with the God flame and the mighty [[I AM Presence]]. When the earth was at the point of being dissolved because there was no one who was keeping the flame of the Christ consciousness alive, Sanat Kumara came to earth, a voluntary exile from his planet Venus, to keep the flame until sufficient numbers among mankind would respond and begin once again to maintain the focus on behalf of their brothers and sisters. One hundred and forty-four thousand souls volunteered to assist Sanat Kumara in his mission and accompany him with legions of angels.
== Sanat Kumara in the world’s religions ==
Sanat Kumara also figures in several roles in the religious traditions of the East. Each one reveals another facet of his Divine Self. He is revered in Hinduism as one of the four or seven sons of Brahma. They are portrayed as youths who have remained pure. The Sanskrit name Sanat Kumara means “always a youth.” He is the most prominent of the Kumaras.
