Mark L. Prophet, now the ascended master Lanello, was called by El Morya in 1958 to found The Summit Lighthouse and to set forth the teachings of the ascended masters for the Aquarian age. Mark was also a messenger in prior embodiments. As the prophet Noah, he received the prophecy of the Flood and exhorted the people for over a hundred years. As the Egyptian pharaoh Ikhnaton, messenger of Aton (the God of the Sun), he introduced monotheism. Mark also served as a Messenger for the Brotherhood in the capacity of poet laureate when he was the American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
