The Seven Rays and the Lords or Chohans of the Rays
The Seven Color Rays are the natural division of the pure white light emanating from the Heart of God as it descends through the prism of the Christ consciousness.
The Seven Rays and their Lords or Chohans are as follows:
1st Ray of Power and Faith (Blue) –
El Morya, embodied as Abraham, One of the three magi, King Authur, Sir Thomas More, etc.
2nd Ray of Wisdom and Illumination (Yellow) –Lanto, was embodied as a sage in ancient China;
3rd Ray of Love and Beauty (Pink) –
Paul the Venetian, was embodied as the artist, Paolo Veronese;
4th Ray of Purity and Ascendancy (White) –Serapis Bey, was embodied as Phidias, the famous fifth century B.C. Greek sculptor;
5th Ray of Healing and Supply (Green) –Hilarion, was embodied as the apostle Paul;
6th Ray of Ministration and Service (Purple and Gold) –
Nada, was embodied as a priestess in the Temple of Love on Atlantis;
7th Ray of Freedom, Transmutation and Ritual (Violet) –
Saint Germain, was embodied as Sir Francis Bacon and Saint Joseph.
The teachings above are from the Summit Lighthouse, Pearls of Wisdom, Vol. 14, No. 9, El Morya, February 28, 1971
Another Teaching by El Morya
on the Chohans or Lords of the Rays
“In him (the living Christ, the Word, the Logos) we live and move and have our being, for we are also his offspring.” <6> We are the Ascended Masters. We are the Chohans (Lords) of the Rays. Each of the seven rays that is the fulfillment of an aspect of the Christ consciousness is ensouled by an Ascended Master who has graduated from the schoolrooms of earth, ascended into the Presence of the I AM THAT I AM, and stands as the Teacher of the way of self-mastery on a particular ray, or radiance, of the Christ mind.
And so as Chohan of the First Ray, I teach the law of the will of God and the mastery of energy through the throat chakra in the science of the spoken Word. <7> Lord Lanto, the Master of Wisdom who taught wisdom's way in ancient China, teaches the path of attainment through enlightenment, definition, and dominion in the crown chakra. Paul the Venetian, who was embodied as the Italian artist Paolo Veronese, is the Lord of the Third Ray of divine love. His chelas learn the art of keeping the flame through the discipline of love and the mastery of the flow of creative forces through the heart chakra.
The Chohan of the Fourth Ray is the Master Serapis Bey – a Spartan if I ever saw one–whose fiery determination has saved many a soul from the mush of self-indulgence. His chelas reflect the fierceness of their Master as they are immovable in their dedication to purity focused as the Mother light in the base-of-the-spine chakra. Hilarion, devotee of truth and scientist of the new age, was embodied as Saint Paul. As Chohan of the Fifth Ray, he reveals the path of mastery through science, truth, healing, and the immaculate vision of God through the third-eye chakra.
Beloved Nada, our Lady Chohan, who was embodied as a lawyer in defense of cosmic justice, serves as the Lord of the Sixth Ray, showing the way of Jesus, the way of humble service and ministration that adorns the talents of others with the rose of selflessness and unlocks their creative potential through the mastery of energy in motion in the solar-plexus chakra. Her motto is the golden rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” <8>
Nada's chelas (students or disciples) pave the way for the golden age of Aquarius under Saint Germain. The Lord of the Seventh Ray, who is the Master of Alchemy, teaches not only the uses of the energies of freedom and the spirit of liberty, but also the way of the alchemical ritual as a necessary component of soul liberation. His ritual is alive with meaning. In his retreat in Transylvania he unveils the symbology of the ritual of the atom and the formulae of the cycles for the release of God's energy in manifestation in man.
All mankind are born to serve and to master the self on one of the seven rays. Their first Guru, then, after the Christ Self, who is the true Teacher of each man and woman, is the Chohan of the Ray on which they serve.
Therefore, those who would be chelas, those who would pursue the path of soul liberation, will be happy to know that there are seven distinct paths of Christhood, that one of these paths is best fitted to your soul personality and inner calling, and that a second will complement the first. And so you might say that on the seven rays you have a major and a minor concentration of study and application in the law of becoming the Christ.
Pearls of Wisdom, Vol. 18 No. 7, El Morya, February 16, 1975
Note: a chela is a student or disciple.
on the Summit Lighthouse website
"The calls to the Chohans are made in anticipation of the ray of the day which is released to the planet from the heart of God through the spiritual sun of this solar system at midnight (your time).
The rays of the days are as follows:
Sunday, second ray, yellow;
Monday, third ray, pink;
Tuesday, first ray, blue;
Wednesday, fifth ray, green;
Thursday, sixth ray, purple and gold;
Friday, fourth ray, white;
and Saturday, seventh ray, violet.
Thus when you make the call before retiring Sunday night, it is to be taken the the retreat of Paul the Venetian, Chohan of the Third Ray that is focused in the planet and her evolutions beginning midnight Sunday ...
Chelas are asked to retire by 11:00 p.m. so that they may be in the retreats by midnight to begin the cycle of the new day with the Chohan of the ray of the day."

Each of us has a major ray and a minor ray. To discern what is our major and minor rays, we can study the rays and then discern what we believe is our major and minor rays. We can also ask our Higher Self.
You may organize your personal libraries using this system, as I, William Star, have done. I believe that this system will be gradually developed into the main organization system used to organize public libraries, and will gradually replace the Dewey Decimal System and other systems.
If you would like to talk about this system, or help me, William Star, develop this system, you may "Contact Us" for my email address, post office address, phone number, and more.
One day there will hopefully be Rainbow Rays Libraries using The Rainbow Rays Organization System. These libraries will have a greater divine order, and help us to realize better what is our major and minor rays, and help us to fulfill better our divine plans or master plans.
Also, bookstores can be organized using this system, which I have done in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, near the Tetons, that is, the Teton Mountains.
Also, businesses, schools, universities, organizations, and governments may be organized using this system. Hopefully, this will gradually happen as we go into the Golden Age of Rainbow Light.
This system is correlated with, and complemented with, the teaching of Saint Germain from the Book Unveiled Mysteries. The teaching is about the Golden Age Civilization in the Sahara. The teaching is given below:
"At the time of this former civilization, the whole empire was filled with great peace, happiness and prosperity. The King-emperor was a "Master of the Ancient Wisdom", and a "Real Cupbearer of the Light." He ruled by that "Light" -- and his empire was the living example of Perfection.
"For hundreds of years," Saint Germain continued, "this Perfection was maintained without army or navy of any kind. The control of the people was vested in the care of fourteen Ascended Masters of Light, two working on each of the Seven Rays. They thus formed points of focus for the Mighty God Activity to be made visible. Under these fourteen Luminous Beings were fourteen lesser Masters, who formed the heads of seven departments, controlling the activities of science, industry and art. Each of the department heads guided the work under his care by conscious and direct contact with the God in himself. Hence, direct from their Source did all direction and instruction come for those under them. Thus, Divine Perfection was constantly flowing through without any interference from the human.
"This form of government was most remarkable, successful, and satisfactory in every way. There has never been anything on earth since that time which has even approached such heights. In the ancient records, that have come down to the present day, this former civilization is always referred to as the Golden Age, and so it was in every activity of Life.
"In your beloved America in the not so far distant future will come forth a similar recognition of the Real Inner Self, and this her people will express in high attainment. She is a Land of Light, and Her Light shall blaze forth brilliant as the sun at noonday among the nations of the earth. She was a Land of Great Light ages ago and will again come into her spiritual heritage for nothing can prevent it. She is strong within her own mind and body, stronger than you think, and that strength she will exert to rise out of and throw off from border to border all that weighs heavily upon her at the present time.
"America has a destiny of great import to the other nations of the earth and Those who have watched over her for centuries, still watch. Through Their protection and love, she shall fulfill that destiny. America! We, the Ascended Host of Light -- love and guard you. America! We love you.
"A similar form of perfect government will come at a later period, when you have cast off certain activities... Beloved ones in America, be not discouraged when the seeming dark clouds hang low. Everyone of them shall show you its golden lining. Back of the cloud that seems to threaten, is the 'Crystal Pure Light of God and His Messengers, the Ascended Masters of Love and Perfection' watching over America, the government, and her people. Again I say, 'America, we love you.'
"One by one, great awakened souls are coming forth who will become clearly conscious of their own mighty, inherent God-Power, and such as these will be placed in all official positions of the government. They will be more interested in the welfare of America than in their own personal ambitions and private fortunes. Thus, will another Golden Age reign upon earth, and will be maintained for an aeon."

The Seven Steps to Precipitation
(Based on the Seven Rays)
1. We need to develop unwavering WILL AND FAITH (1st Ray) in our ability to use the Threefold Flame in our hearts.
First Ray activity – Colour Blue, Chohan: El Morya, Archangel Michael and Elohim Hercules.
2. We need to still ourselves and ask for the Illumination Flame - the WISDOM & PERCEPTION (2nd Ray) - what it is that needs to be done (not my will, but Thine)
Colour: golden yellow, Chohan Lord Lanto, Archangel Jophiel and Elohim Cassiopea or Apollo
3. We need to LOVE (3rd Ray) it enough to bring it into physical manifestation.
Colour pink - Chohan: Paul the Venetian, Archangel Chamuel, Elohim Orion or Heros.
4. We need to hold the PURITY (4th Ray) of the original idea that came from our Mighty I Am Presence – God in us.
Colour white - Chohan: Serapis Bey, Archangel Gabriel, and Elohim Purity (Clair)
5. We need to CONCENTRATE AND CONSECRATE (5th Ray) our lives to this end.
Colour emerald green - Chohan: Lord Hilarion, Archangel Raphael and Elohim Vista or Cyclopea.
6. We need to RHYTHMICALLY INVOKE (7th Ray) the power of God and transmute any imperfections by the Violet Fire, the God idea we are bringing into form.
Colour violet – Chohan: Saint Germain, Archangel Zadkiel, Elohim Lord Arcturus
Interesting Note: In this teaching on precipitation, the 7th ray came before the 6th ray.
7. PEACE AND GRACE (6th Ray) are essential, if our endeavours are not ‘wrapped’ in Cosmic Christ PEACE we have only ashes at the end!
Colour Purple and gold, Chohan: Lady Nada, Archangel Uriel and Elohim Peace or Tranquility
