Chananda is the chief of the Indian Council of the Great White Brotherhood. His sister is the ascended lady master Najah.
Chananda was a scholar on Mu and lived in the city of the seven hills where San Francisco now is.
He was also embodied at the time of Jesus and knew the Master in Judea. He saw his radiant magnetism and “perceived the Presence of immortality shining through his outer garment.”
His service today
To certain unascended chelas, Chananda has demonstrated the extraordinary powers available unto all of the ascended hosts. On one occasion, he levitated himself, Godfre, Rex and Nada, Bob and Pearl (then unascended) on a “magic carpet” (a sheet of metal covered with a Persian rug) eleven thousand feet into the atmosphere to enjoy the view of a valley.
Chananda came forth in 1937 to assist Saint Germain to implement his plan for the freedom of the earth, as did his sister, the ascended lady master Najah, in 1938. He assists the governments of the world, while she works with the youth, often appearing as a young girl in parts of India and China, teaching and helping the people.
Chananda is currently working on a top-priority project with the Darjeeling Council and unascended initiates of the Brotherhood. Part of this project involves the precipitation of a golden-age government based on the principles behind the Constitution of the United States. This God-inspired document was released to America by its founder, the ascended master Saint Germain; and when properly used and followed, it will provide the key to a golden-age civilization that is just beyond the horizon.
Chananda is particularly concerned with the problems of racial and religious divisions between people and with the future of India. He outlines the path of peace as the way of overcoming:
India was won through nonviolence. We shun violence and exude the peace of the Buddha, which is the all-power of God. But we would have our chelas understand that when you depend upon the peace of the Buddha as the ultimate power, then it would be well for you to study assiduously the terms of that peace. For you must make peace with your God if you expect your God to provide that power in the hour when peace is challenged by absolute war....
I know whereof I speak. I remember in a previous incarnation as the battle raged all around me and I stood holding the balance in the midst of thousands and ten thousand. Blessed hearts, I stood in their midst holding the focus of the sacred fire. And do you know—they saw me not! I was not visible in the physical spectrum, though I was in physical embodiment. And thereby … by my unswerving allegiance to the light, which I owe to the Almighty and to him alone—I was that pillar! I was that fire! And thus they could not continue the battle. And they retreated on both sides, leaving me standing alone in the midst of the plain of the battle itself.
Call to beloved Chananda, the Great Divine Director, El Morya and Saint Germain for the proper implementation of the plans for God-government throughout the world.
