Ascended Masters are beings who have passed through the higher initiations, hold positions of great responsibility, overseeing the Earth and its growth or work on a cosmic level. And, like organisations upon the earth, change their positions from time to time, gaining ‘promotions’ and new opportunities for their own growth and service to humanity.
Some of the greater evolved masters, serving on a cosmic level include Maitreya, Gautama Buddha, Melchizedek, Sananda, Sanat Kumara, Metatron, the Maha Chohan and Vywamus (Sanat Kumara).
Overseeing the Earth are such masters as Sananda (inner planes name for Jesus), Lord Kuthumi, Djwal Khul, Serapis Bey, El Morya, Quan Yin, Mother Mary, Saint Germain, Lady Nada and many, many others.
New ascended Masters are taking their positions all the time. Many ‘ordinary’ people, who are not famous in an earthly sense, pass through their 6th initiations, ascending. Of the more famous people who have ascended in recent times the following are included: Walt Disney, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, HRH Princess Diana and Pope John Paul II. They continue their learning and it may be many hundreds or thousands of years before they take on the same level of responsibility as masters such as Saint Germain (Count Ragorsky).
There are numerous levels of offices and responsibilities in the Cosmic Hierarchy that governs Earth, each contributing in some way to the fulfillment of God’s plan on Earth. Some of the common titles of these Ascended Beings are: Saints, Buddha(s), Bodhisattvas, Elohim, Angels, Archangels, Gods, Goddesses, and Lords. In addition to these names which appear more frequently than others, there are titles such as: Cosmic Beings, Chohans, Devas, Seraphim, Cherubim, Logos, Planetary and Cosmic Silent Watchers, Kachinas, and Beings of the Elements.
