The Summit Lighthouse®
Teachings of the Ascended Masters of East and West
For more than 50 years, The Summit Lighthouse® has been publishing the Teachings of the Ascended Masters—the mystics and sages of East and West who graduated from earth’s schoolroom and attained union with God.
The Summit Lighthouse®, a non-profit organization, is the official source for Teachings of the Ascended Masters from Mark L. Prophet and Elizabeth Clare Prophet and their students. We are dedicated to making these teachings available to all those looking for answers to life’s difficult questions.
The fundamental principle of the Teachings of the Ascended Masters is that all sons and daughters of God have a divine spark that is their potential to realize the universal Christ within and ascend to God as Jesus did. This concept is at the heart of all the major religions, East and West.
The ascended masters are all a part of the Great White Brotherhood*, spoken of in Revelation 7 as the great multitude of saints “clothed with white robes” who stand before the throne of God. The Brotherhood works with earnest seekers and public servants of every race, religion and walk of life to assist humanity in their forward evolution.
* The term “white” refers not to race but to the aura of white light that surrounds these immortals.
Among these saints are Gautama Buddha, Maitreya, Jesus Christ, Saint Michael the Archangel, Zarathustra, Moses, Melchizedek, Mother Mary, Saint Francis, Saint Germain, El Morya, Thérèse of Lisieux and unnumbered and unnamed loving hearts, servants of humanity.
FEATURE PRESENTATION: Mark L. Prophet - The MOVIE
People remember him as deeply spiritual and at the same time fun loving, spontaneous and practical, a down-to-earth person who loved to talk to people from every walk of life. The Ascended Master El Morya first appeared to Mark when he was a young man, but unable to reconcile the turbaned Eastern adept with his lifelong devotion to Jesus, Mark dismissed him. Years later, having realized that the path of the Ascended Master was also the path of Jesus, Mark accepted Morya as his teacher and took on the rigors of discipleship in the tradition of the East. Mark also studied the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and was for a time associated with Self-Realization Fellowship as well as the Rosicrucian Order. After serving in the Air Force in World War II, Mark lectured on Christian and Eastern mysticism and the Masters of Wisdom from 1945 until 1952, when he began publishing a series of letters for his students called Ashram Notes, dictated by El Morya.
In 1957 El Morya called Mark to Washington, D.C., to found The Summit Lighthouse and publish the teachings of the Ascended Masters. On August 8, 1958, El Morya dictated the first of the Pearls of Wisdom to Mark, launching a worldwide movement. In February 1973, Mark delivered his final dictation which was given at the Santa Barbara Motherhouse in California. Not long after that, Mark ascended to reunite with God. He is known today as the Ascended Master Lanello.
