Mount Everest, Himalayan Range

Himalaya is the manu of the fourth root race. He is also the hierarch of the Retreat of the Blue Lotus in the Himalayan mountains, guardian of the ray of the masculine aspect of the Godhead focused directly from the heart of Alpha. The gentle radiance of Himalaya can be felt throughout the East as a tangible presence drawing the pilgrims of all nations into a divine awareness of the flame of the blue lotus.

The fourth root race

A root race is a group of souls, or a lifewave, who embody together and have a unique archetypal pattern, divine plan and mission to fulfill. The manus (Sanskrit for “progenitors” or “lawgivers”) ensoul the Christic image for the lifewave they sponsor. According to esoteric tradition, there are seven primary groups of souls, i.e., the first to seventh root races.

The first three root races lived in purity and innocence upon earth in three golden ages before the Fall of man. Through obedience to cosmic law and total identification with the Real Self, these three root races won their immortal freedom and ascended from earth. It was during the time of the fourth root race, on the continent of Lemuria, that the allegorical Fall took place under the influence of the fallen angels known as Serpents (because they used the serpentine spinal energies to beguile the soul, or female principle in mankind, as a means of lowering the masculine potential).

The fourth, fifth and sixth root races remain in embodiment on earth today. The seventh root race is destined to incarnate on the continent of South America in the Aquarian age under their manu, the Great Divine Director.

Himalaya’s service

Himalaya is a Master of masters. His pupils have been Lord Gautama, Lord Maitreya, El Morya, Kuthumi and thousands of others. He teaches meditation while in the lotus posture. Those who are privileged to sit at his feet must learn to blend their consciousness with his, and as their pulse becomes one with the rhythm of his threefold flame, they receive the ideations of his mind, although never a word is spoken. Those who master the art of telepathy always leave the Blue Lotus Temple with hearts full and with a mantra that is the key to the unfoldment of their divine plan.

The tangible radiance of Lord Himalaya appears as golden snow; his great devotion to the flame of the Christ in the masses of Asia has kept the Ganges purified as a healing focus for centuries. Likewise, in the mountains bearing his name, he has anchored magnetic poles of the Christ consciousness.

Lord Himalaya has spent much time in the Great Silence (in Nirvana) where he retreats to gather the energies of the great creative consciousness, stepping forth from time to time to release the light he has drawn to the four corners of the earth. At the present time, he is active in his retreat on behalf of the illumination of the world and the uniting of East and West. His divine complement remains in embodiment to anchor their twin flames in form.

Himalaya says:

The quietness of the Buddha, the listening of the Christ, this is the power of God. The Great Silence is the power, the tenderness of the flowers, the new babe and those making the transition to all light. Learn of power, beloved, and learn of me. Learn of the wonder of God and the miracle of grace. Learn of the entering in to the Temple of the Blue Lotus. Learn, then, of the assimilation of that cobalt blue in all of the chakras. Learn the stillness of the eye of the hurricane and the eye of God. Learn the majesty of the peace that establishes the light of the heart.[1]

Calling the fourth root race Home

In 1977, Lord Himalaya sent forth a call to the members of the fourth root race:

I AM Himalaya. I call forth the members of the fourth root race! I call you into the purity of your own God flame! I call you to the purity of Serapis Bey! I call you to the purity of your origin in God! I call you Home! I call the electrons and molecules, cells, and atoms of being into the sacred fires of the AUM!

I send forth the light that now arcs with the God and Goddess Meru, with Lord Vaivasvata Manu, and with the Great Divine Director. And we do renew this day the intensification of the forcefield of the archetypical pattern of the true identity of the members of the root races evolving on earth, of the angelic hosts incarnate, and of all who have become a part of this lifewave.

We send forth, then, the energy of the will of God for the restoration of individual identity.[2]

His twin flame

In 1983 Himalaya revealed that his twin flame is not yet ascended:

I have tarried with earth’s evolutions long, and I wait for my own beloved to ascend from your midst. Therefore, understand how cosmic beings have yet in embodiment their own twin flames, and strive with oneness for your own. For we have known the pain of the battle and the pain of separation. With you we strive onward to attain the mark of Godhood.[3]
