The members of the Brotherhood of Mount Shasta hail from an ancient hierarchy of lightbearers, disciplined priests and priestesses who tended the flame of the Mother on the altars of Lemuria, or Mu, before it sank. They are ascended and unascended masters who keep the flame of purity in the mountain and receive chelas who meet the measure of their rod. They are devotees of Buddha and his light. They are Zoroastrians, Confucians, Taoists and Zen monks. They chant the sacred AUM and are well acquainted with the mystery of the Christos in the I AM THAT I AM. The Brotherhood of Mount Shasta sponsored Godfré Ray King and his initiations with Saint Germain.
