El Morya is chief of the Darjeeling Council of the Great White Brotherhood, chohan of the first ray and hierarch of the etheric Temple of Good Will over Darjeeling, India. He is the founder of The Summit Lighthouse and the guru and teacher of the messengers Mark L. Prophet and Elizabeth Clare Prophet. Prior to The Summmit, he founded Agni Yoga and before that he helped found Theosophy.
He represents the godly attributes of courage, certainty, power, forthrightness, self-reliance, dependability, faith and initiative. These are the qualities of the Father principle—the statesman, the executive, the ruler. Because he has ably outpictured these essential virtues, El Morya has, through many embodiments, worn the crown of authority, ruling many kingdoms wisely and well. His rulership has not been that of a dictator, demanding that his subjects submit to his human will; but rather, his interpretation of government is God-over-men and his concept of true statesmen is God’s overmen. He inspires in his subjects illumined obedience to the holy will of God.
