[[File:0000155 poster-sanat-kumara-2008 600.jpeg|thumb|Sanat Kumara]]
'''Sanat Kumara''' is known as the '''Ancient of Days'''. He is the Great Guru of the seed of Christ throughout cosmos, hierarch of [[Special:MyLanguage/Venus (the planet)|Venus]] and one of the [[Special:MyLanguage/seven holy Kumaras|seven holy Kumaras]] (Lords of Flame who represent the seven rays on Venus). He initiates us on the path of the [[Special:MyLanguage/ruby ray|ruby ray]], which he sets forth in his book ''The Opening of the Seventh Seal''.
He has held the hierarchical position of the [[Special:MyLanguage/Lord of the World|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 [[Special:MyLanguage/I AM Presence|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.
== His coming to the Earth == <!--T:4-->
<blockquote>We wept in joy, Venus and I and all of the hundred and forty and four thousand. And the tears that flowed on that memorable evening burned as the living sacred fire flowing as the water of life from the great white throne and the Cosmic Council, our sponsors.<ref>{{OSS}}, pp. 11–15.</ref></blockquote>  
=== Building Shamballa === <!--T:21-->
On the White Island in the Gobi Sea, they built the City of White, patterned after the city of the Kumaras on Venus. Sanat Kumara established the focus of the threefold flame in the retreat at Shamballa, which remained in the physical for many centuries. Sanat Kumara resided in this physical retreat, but he did not take on a physical body such as the bodies we wear today—it was in the Matter universe, yet highly etheric. Later it became expedient for its protection that Shamballa, this wondrous retreat that was in the physical octave, be withdrawn to the etheric octave. The etheric focus remains as an exact replica of what was once the physical retreat. The beautiful azure sea with the White Island in the center is now the Gobi desert.
== Sanat Kumara’s mission on Earth == <!--T:24-->
Until this change in office, Sanat Kumara released tremendous light to the planet each year at the [[Special:MyLanguage/Wesak Festival|Wesak Festival]] during the full moon in Taurus. His radiation was anchored through his disciples, Lord Gautama Buddha, [[Special:MyLanguage/Lord Maitreya|Lord Maitreya]] and the one who currently holds the office of the [[Special:MyLanguage/Maha Chohan|Maha Chohan]]. These three anchored the focus of the threefold flame from the heart of Sanat Kumara on behalf of the Lord of the World. They were the step-down transformers for his intense radiation.
== Sanat Kumara in the world’s religions == <!--T:29-->
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 [[Special:MyLanguage/Brahma|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.

=== Hinduism === <!--T:32-->
Skanda-Karttikeya, as he is sometimes called, is also acclaimed as the god of wisdom and learning. He is said to bestow spiritual powers upon his devotees, especially the power of knowledge. In the Hindu mystic tradition, Karttikeya is known as Guha, which means “cave” or Secret One, because he lives in the cave of your heart. Hindu scriptures also depict Sanat Kumara is the “foremost of sages” and a knower of Brahman.
=== Zoroastrianism === <!--T:35-->
Sometime between 1700 and 600 <small>B<small>.</small>C</small>. [[Special:MyLanguage/Zarathustra|Zarathustra]] founded Zoroastrianism in ancient Persia. One morning when he went to fetch water in a river, he beheld a luminous being who led him to Ahura Mazda and five other radiant figures. So great was their light that “he did not see his own shadow upon the earth.” From this group of beings he received his first revelation of a new religion. Shortly afterward, Zarathustra became a spokesman for Ahura Mazda.
=== Dipamkara === <!--T:38-->
Buddhists consider Dipamkara, Gautama Buddha and Lord Maitreya to be the “Buddhas of the three times”—past, present and future. We can understand this to mean that Dipamkara is the past Lord of the World, Gautama Buddha is the present Lord of the World and Maitreya will be the future Lord of the World.

=== Buddhism === <!--T:42-->
In Buddhism, there is a great god known as '''Brahma Sanam-kumara'''. His name also means “forever a youth.” Brahma Sanam-kumara is a being so elevated that he must create an apparition body in order to be seen by the gods of the heaven of the Thirty-Three. Sakka, the ruler of the gods, describes his appearance: “He outshines other devas in radiance and glory, just as a figure made of gold outshines the human figure.”<ref>Maurice Walsh, trans., ''Thus Have I Heard: The Long Discourses of the Buddha Digha Nikaya'' (London: Wisdom Publications, 1987), pp. 295–96.</ref>
=== Christianity === <!--T:44-->
<blockquote>And I saw a great white throne and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.<ref>Rev. 20:11. See {{OSS}}, p. 13.</ref></blockquote>
== Lady Master Venus == <!--T:49-->
<!--T:50-->[[File:0000154 poster-lady-master-venus-2007 600.jpeg|<translate>thumb|Lady Master Venus</translate>]]
Sanat Kumara’s twin flame is '''Lady Master Venus'''. During his long exile on planet Earth, she remained on their home planet to keep the flame there. Some years after Sanat Kumara’s return in 1956, Lady Venus herself came to earth to assist her evolutions. In a dictation delivered on May 25, 1975, she announced that as Sanat Kumara had kept the flame for earth, now she had come to “tarry for a time on Terra” to “dedicate anew the fires of the Mother.” She said:
<blockquote>I release a fiery momentum of consciousness to arrest all spirals that would take from humanity the fullness of their divinity.... See how mankind respond to the flame of the Mother as they responded to the light of Sanat Kumara.</blockquote>
== Return to earth == <!--T:53-->
In a dictation given July 4, 1978, Sanat Kumara told us he was manifesting that night in the physical spectrum “and I am anchoring in this very earth plane the full weight and momentum of my office as the Ancient of Days, such as I have not done since our coming to the Place Prepared at Shamballa.”
== Keynote == <!--T:59-->
The strains of Sanat Kumara’s keynote were captured by Jan Sibelius in ''Finlandia''. So powerful is the release of the flame of freedom through this music, that during the Nazi occupation, its playing was forbidden lest it arouse the fervor of the people for freedom.
