Lord Lanto, Chohan of the Second Ray of Illumnation
Having studied under Lord Himalaya and gained his mastery in the Retreat of the Blue Lotus, Lord Lanto elected to use the yellow plume to enfold the hearts of all mankind. He is dedicated to the perfectionment of the evolutions of this planet through Cosmic Christ illumination. The golden flame that he bears is charged with the momentum of God-victory for the youth of the world.
Lanto volunteered with Sanat Kumara, the Ancient of Days, to come to earth long ago for the rescue of the planet and her evolutions. He was a High Priest in the temple of the Divine Mother on the continent that sank beneath the Pacific, known as Lemuria. He had other incarnations on Atlantis, as did all of the chohans of the rays.
In the last days of Lemuria, those who tended the flames upon the altars of the temples were warned of the coming cataclysm. They removed their flames, carried them to places of safety, and deposited those flames in other physical retreats or removed them to the etheric octave. Lord Lanto carried the flame of precipitation and deposited it in the area of the Grand Teton mountains in North America.
The flame of precipitation is a Chinese green tinged with yellow of the second ray. This flame burning in the Royal Teton Retreat is the quality in consciousness that makes Americans extremely practical, developing an applied science in technology that takes us back to the time of Mu when that technology even exceeded what we have today. It is a flame of abundance that enables the precipitation of wealth as well as happiness and joy and the Universal Christ consciousness.
Lord Lanto's Lifetimes in China
Lord Lanto embodied in ancient China as the Duke of Chou, also known as the Yellow Emperor (twelfth century BC). The Duke of Chou is regarded as one of the greatest statesmen in Chinese history and is considered to be the architect of the Chou dynasty and the true founder of the Confucian tradition. Confucius looked to the Duke as his model and believed it was his mission to reestablish the principles and culture of the early Chou era, which was thought to have been a golden age.
Lanto was later embodied as a ruler of China at the time of Confucius (551 to 479 B.C.) and has held the golden flame of illumination on behalf of the Chinese people for many, many centuries. This flame is anchored in China in the retreat of the archangels Jophiel and Christine, which is located in central China.
Before his ascension Lord Lanto determined that the light from his own heart flame should shine forth physically as living proof to his disciples that the threefold flame, as in past and coming golden ages, is the Word that is made flesh and that it can be thus expanded and intensified by the priority of the adept.
Affirming with (or aeons before) the proverbial Job, "Yet in my flesh shall I see God!" Lanto, by the dynamism of his decrees from the heart, his devoutness to the living Word as the Universal Christ ever with him, and his consecration of the chakras to the sacred fire of the Mother did achieve what none other in earth’s recorded history since the Fall had done: Lanto so adored the Trinity in the tripartite light of his innermost being that the intense glow of that divine spark could actually be seen through his flesh form emanating a soft golden glow through his chest.
Lord Lanto maintained the manifestation of the threefold flame in honor of Sanat Kumara until his ascension around 500 BC—"a memorial to all generations" who are the issue of the I AM THAT I AM—in order that the original lightbearers might recall their mission to illumine the dark star.
Throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries Lanto has stood faithfully behind the efforts of Saint Germain to liberate mankind through his release of the ascended masters' teachings on the I AM Presence and the violet fire.
Chohan of the Second Ray at the Royal Teton Retreat
On July 3, 1958, the ascended master Confucius succeeded Lord Lanto as hierarch of the Royal Teton Retreat. On that date also, Lord Lanto, with attainment far beyond that required either of retreat hierarch or chohan, accepted the office of lord of the second ray from Kuthumi. This blessed brother, who had worshiped the God of Peace as Saint Francis, had already joined Jesus in the office of World Teacher in 1956.
On October 30, 1966, in cooperation with the God and Goddess Meru, Lanto was granted the dispensation by the Karmic Board for a "mighty transcendent golden flame of illumination" to pulsate three hundred feet into the atmosphere over the colleges, universities, divinity and theological schools of America and the world whose students and faculty were and would be receptive to knowledge from higher spheres.
The ascended master Lanto conducts classes at the Royal Teton Retreat, the initial retreat of the Great White Brotherhood to where we may ask to be taken in our etheric body at night. Here we learn the fundamentals of the path of initiation. Because of the dispensation of opening the seven retreats of the seven chohans, many tens of thousands of souls are receiving training at inner levels to accelerate their consciousness for the New Age.
Lanto's Teaching on Our Real Nature
Lord Lanto also tries to give us a sense of our worth instead of the feeling of self-deprecation so common among men today:
Man is a God in the becoming, but he can never know this while he thinks earthly thoughts. He can never know this by worldly knowledge, for the things of this world are foolishness with God.1 And in the eyes of God, the only real values are those that free man from the eclipse of being that has concealed the sun of God’s Presence from his eyes. And it is this sun that will awaken his spiritual senses that enable him to see with Saint Paul the face of the Master and to hear his cry 'It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.'2
Meditation on Lord Lanto
Meditation on Lord Lanto and his golden lotus flame may be accompanied by the music of Song to the Evening Star from Tannhäuser, by Wagner (keynote of the Royal Teton Retreat). The wisdom of Lanto is excelled by few ascended beings serving this earth. His flame should be invoked daily on behalf of the youth of the world.
Call to Lord Lanto and the Yellow Flame of Wisdom
A yellow flame invocation that Lanto requested that we "...say it often each day, that you might have the momentum and the mantle of my ray. Light a candle in the night and consecrate the fire to the fires of the sun, to the holy aura unfolding in each one..
In the name of Almighty God
I stand forth to challenge the night,
To raise up the Light,
To focus the consciousness of Gautama Buddha!
And I AM the thousand-petaled Lotus Flame!
And I come to bear it in his name!
I stand in Life this hour
And I stand with the scepter of Christ-power
To challenge the darkness,
To bring forth the Light,
To ensoul from starry heights,
The consciousness of angels,
Masters, Elohim, sun-centers
And of all of Life
That is the I AM Presence of each on!
I claim the victory in God's name.
I claim the Light of Solar Flame.
I claim the Light! I AM the Light!.
I AM victory! I AM victory! I AM victory!
For the Divine Mother and the Diving Manchild
And for the raising-up of the crown of Life
And the twelve starry focal points
That rejoice to see the salvation of our God
Right within my crown,
Right within the center of the Sun
Of Alpha - It is done.
