[IAMAmerica.com] In the late nineteenth century, Ascended Master Kuthumi—also known as Koot Hoomi or K.H.—collaborated with Helena Blavatsky and El Morya to introduce humanity to the spiritual teachings of theosophy. And like Master M., K.H. is dedicated to advancing the spiritual fitness of mankind to a higher consciousness. Thus, Kuthumi approached his interaction with humans in the same manner as his mahatma contemporary: he veiled his identity behind the Indian dignitaries of the time, in this case, Thakar Singh Sandhawalia, leader of the Singh Sabha movement. Founded in the early 1870s, this Indian independence campaign emerged as a grassroots effort to maintain the purity of Sikhism, otherwise eroded by Christian Missionaries. Sandhanwalia, Ranbir Singh—one of El Morya’s aliases—and H.P.B joined forces to spread theosophy throughout India.
Kuthumi and El Morya shared a close relationship through the ages. Both trained by the Ascended Master Maha Chohan, the spiritual duo, as two of the wise men, paid homage to the baby Jesus: K.H. as Balthazar and Master M. as Melchior. Kuthumi also shows up as Sir Percival at the round table of King Arthur (aka El Morya). But his incarnation history isn’t limited to associations with his spiritual Brother. Kuthumi’s past lifetimes include the Greek philosopher Pythagoras; Thutmose III, the warrior pharaoh of the eighteenth dynasty; Shah Jahan, the emperor of India and builder of the Taj Mahal; and founder of the Franciscans, Saint Francis of Assisi.
Highly educated and extremely private, Kuthumi, a Cambridge University alumni, spent 200 years in seclusion in the Himalayan Mountains before ascending in 1889. He is a gentle Master affiliated with the Golden City Malton, and the Gold and Ruby Rays of ministration and service to humanity. In one of his earliest letters to A.P. Sinnett, Kuthumi calls the holy Golden Temple of the Sikhs his home, although he’s seldom there, preferring the solitude of Tibet.
Author Alice Bailey, who continued to work with the Masters after Blavatsky’s death in 1891, writes about a visit from K.H.: “Master Koot Hoomi, [is] a Master who is very close to the Christ.” In 1895, Kuthumi told the fifteen-year-old Bailey that she would travel the world “doing your Master’s work all the time” and that “I would have to give up being such an unpleasant little girl and must try and get some measure of self-control. My future usefulness to him and to the world was dependent upon how I handled myself and the changes I could manage to make.”
A.D.K. Luk writes of Kuthumi: “He was such a lover of nature that he would watch a certain phase for hours, or would stay a whole day with a flower to see it open into full bloom, and perhaps watch it close again at night. He was one of the few who represented the heart of the Nature Kingdom. He was able to read through the Elemental Kingdom and accelerate his consciousness to a point where he was of assistance in that realm. Birds and animals were drawn to him to be in his radiance which was about him; drawn by his constant attention and adoration to his Source.” From Points of Perception, by Lori Toye
