Two thousand years ago, Djwal Kul journeyed with El Morya and Kuthumi as one of the three wise men following the star to the birthplace of Jesus. In that service to the Trinity, he focused the pink plume, Morya the blue and Kuthumi the gold, in the forcefield of the infant Jesus.

Previously, prior to the sinking of Lemuria, he had assisted Lord Himalaya in removing ancient records and tablets to the Himalayan retreats of the masters; later he studied in the lamasaries of Asia. It has been said by Theosophists that he was embodied as Kleineas, a pupil of Pythagoras (Kuthumi), as one of the disciples of Gautama Buddha, and as Aryasanga.[1]

As “D.K.” and as Gai Ben-Jamin, he served with El Morya and Kuthumi in their endeavors with Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society. Through his willingness to serve, he became known as “The Messenger of the Masters.” Djwal Kul was the foremost disciple of Kuthumi, and is said to have lived near his teacher in Tibet.

His service today

In the late nineteenth century, Djwal Kul, El Morya and Kuthumi won their ascension, and in the 1950s, they began working with the messengers Mark L. Prophet and later Elizabeth Clare Prophet to publish their instruction through The Summit Lighthouse.

With Kuthumi, Djwal Kul teaches about the human aura. He gives us the meditation on the secret chamber of the heart, and is one of the masters who initiate us within the inner temple, the secret chamber of the heart, on the path of love. He has released a breathing exercise for the integration of the four lower bodies, which is found in the book Studies of the Human Aura. He also teaches the great astrology of the ascended masters—the twelve lines of the cosmic clock for the twelve paths of initiation under the twelve solar hierarchies. He teaches us how to invoke the flame for the mastery of our daily astrology, which is our daily karma. Day by day, the karma—positive and negative—that comes to our life can be met and mastered by these twelve paths and twelve flames.

Djwal Kul tells a story that illustrates an element of spiritual science:

I am come tonight to bring to you the fresh winds of the Zuider Zee; and I begin with a tale of the land of the dikes.

There lived by the sea a gentle soul who was a miller. He and his wife served together to grind the grain for the people of their town. And it came to pass that in all the land there were no communities where so much happiness reigned as there. Their countrymen marveled and wondered, for they recognized that something unusual must have happened to make the members of this community so singularly wise and happy. And although the townsfolk themselves were born, grew up, matured to adulthood and passed from the screen of life within the community, never in all of their living were they able to understand the mystery.

Tonight I shall draw aside the curtain and tell you what made the people of this community so happy and prosperous, so joyous and wise.

It was the service of the miller and his wife and the love that they put into the flour. For this love was carried home in sacks of flour on the backs of those who patronized their mill and was then baked into their bread. At every meal the regenerative power of love from the miller and his wife was radiated around the table, and it entered their physical bodies as they partook of the bread. Thus, like radioactive power, the energy of this vibrant love from the miller and his wife was spread throughout the community.

The neighbors did not know the reason for their happiness and none of the people were ever able to discover it. For sometimes—although they live side by side—mankind are unable to pry the most simple secrets about one another. And so the mysteries of divine love continue to defy probing by the human consciousness, but we of the ascended masters’ octave occasionally choose to make them known to you by sharing these gems with you.

The instruction which I would bring to you tonight concerns physical properties and their power to retain the radiation of those who handle them. The food you eat, beloved ones, when prepared by hands charged with divine love, enters into your physical body and creates a much greater degree of spiritual happiness than mankind would at first realize. Those who are wise will recognize the truth of what I am saying; and if they must partake of food from unknown sources, they will be certain that they have removed by the violet transmuting flame those undesirable momentums of human creation whose radiation can do no good to the individual who partakes thereof and much harm to him who is unwary and therefore unprotected.[2]


Main article: Djwal Kul's Retreat in Tibet

The focus of Djwal Kul’s golden flame of illumination is in his etheric retreat in Tibet. From that point, he assists in the raising of the consciousness of India through her embodied teachers, the yogic masters of the Himalayas, under the influence of his understanding of yogic principles in preparation for future advancement in the science of invocation and the release of Christ-power through the seven chakras.
