    • Francis Bacon feigned his physical death on Easter Sunday, April 9, 1626 in a "Philosopher's Death". This refers to the tradition of some philosophers who simulated their death in one place only to transplant themselves into another area to begin a new life - with a new name and appearance. (20)
    • Francis actually had his physical, mental, emotional and memory bodies charged with the Light, Life, and Love of his "I AM" Presence. Vitalized with the Pranic Forces of Nature, he left England and traveled through various areas of Europe continuing the Great Work of the Brotherhood of Light.
    • Staying with John Valentine Andrea in Berlin, Francis helped him further develop Rosicrucian philosophy on the Sacred Mysteries. Andrea had published a fictional book called Chemical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz in which he described “Christian Rosenkreuz” as the founder of the Rosicrucians. The character of Rosenkreuz was patterned after Francis Bacon. (15) (16)
    • Francis continued to write under pseudonyms, as he had done before 1626, continuing to write as late as 1670 using the pseudonym "Comte De Gabalis" to write a treatise about the Pranic Life Forces of Nature. (17)
    • Francis Bacon Illumined and Raised his body on May 1, 1684 at the Rákóczi Mansion in the Carpathian Mountain region of Transylvania. Undergoing the Initiation of the Resurrection, he became an Adept with full Christ Mastery of the Forces of Nature. Francis became the "Wonderman of Europe" in the 1700s, working in his Resurrected Body with embodied individuals in Europe, England, and America to further the Cause of Freedom and the Advancement of Learning. He used various pseudonyms such as Count Saint Germain, Marquis de Montferrat, Comte Bellamarre of Aymar at Venice, Chevalier Schoening at Pisa, Chevaller Weldon at Milan and Leipzig, Comte Soltikoff at Genoa and Leghor, Graf Tzarogy at Dresden, and Comte de St. Germain at Paris, the Hague, London, and St. Petersburg. (11) (13) (14) (18) (19)
    • In 1790 Francis confided to his Austrian friend, Franz Graeffer, that after traveling to Constantinople and then on to England, he would be going to "rest" in "the region of the Himalayas". By 1875, he completed his Ascension, and was now known as the Ascended Master Saint Germain. (13) (22)

  • First Public Dictation / Discourse:
    • June 13, 1932   Chicago, Illinois U.S.A. (2)

  • Twin Flame / Divine Complement / Twin Ray:

  • Embodied as:
    • Ruler of a Golden Age civilization in the area of the Sahara Desert 70,000 years ago
    • High priest on Atlantis approximately 13,000 years ago, serving in the Order of Lord Zadkiel in the Temple of Purification, located where the island of Cuba now is
    • Hesiod, circa 700 B.C., Greece. Poet whose writings serve as a major source for knowledge of Greek mythology and cosmology
    • Prophet Samuel, 11th century B.C. Religious leader in Israel who served as prophet, priest, and last of the Hebrew judges
    • Plato, 427 - 347 B.C., Greece. He studied with students of Pythagoras in Crotona and scholars in Egypt. He established his own school of philosophy at the Academy in Athens.
    • Saint Joseph, 1st century A.D., Nazareth. Husband of Mary and Guardian of Jesus
    • Saint Alban, 2rd to early 3rd century A.D., town of Verulamium, renamed St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England. He was the first martyr in England, and has been associated with Masonry by some authors. He had sheltered a fugitive priest, became a devout convert to Christianity, and was put to death for disguising himself as the priest so he could die in his place. St. Alban was previously thought to have been martyred in the year AD 303. Modern scholarship, however, has indicated that St. Alban was actually martyred on June 22, 209 by Geta, eldest son of the Emperor Severus. (A)
    • Merlin, England. Seventy years after his embodiment as Alban, he returned as Merlin. He assisted King Arthur at Camelot and inspired the establishment of the Order of the Knights of the Round Table.
    • Proclus, circa 410 - 485 A.D., Greece. The last major Greek Neoplatonic philosopher, who headed the Platonic Academy in Athens and wrote extensively on philosophy, astronomy, mathematics, and grammar
    • Roger Bacon, circa 1220 - 1292 A.D., England. Philosopher, educational reformer, and experimental scientist; forerunner of modern science renowned for his exhaustive investigations into alchemy, optics, mathematics, and languages
    • Organizer behind the scenes for the Secret Societies in Europe in the late 14th and early 15th centuries A.D. The creation of a fictional character named "Christian Rosenkreuz" was apparently inspired by his efforts.
    • Christopher Columbus, 1451 - 1506 A.D. Believed to have been born in Genoa, Italy and settled in Portugal. Discovered America in 1492 during first of four voyages to the New World sponsored by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain
    • Francis Bacon, 1561 - 1626 A.D., England. Philosopher, statesman, essayist and literary master, author of the Shakespearean plays, (23) father of inductive science and herald of the scientific revolution. Francis Bacon made it appear that he died on Easter Sunday, April 9, 1626, and he even attended his own "funeral" in disguise. Francis crossed the English Channel, and secretly traveled in disguise after 1626 through various areas of Europe with the assistance of the Brotherhood of Light. He continued to write under pseudonyms, as he had done before 1626, continuing to write as late as 1670 using the pseudonym "Comte De Gabalis" to write a treatise about the Pranic Life Forces of Nature. He traveled secretly to Transylvania (now part of Romania) to the Rakoczy (Rákóczi) Mansion, where he continued preparations for his physical Resurrection and Ascension under the direct training of the Master R (Great Divine Director). He had incarnated in that area a number of times in previous lifetimes and felt particularly at home there. Since Francis Bacon was sighted in the area at various times over the following decades, some local people speculated that he might be a member of the Rakoczy family (possibly related to Prince Ferenc Rakoczy II of Transylvania). Not wanting to leave humanity in the physical octave without His direct visible assistance, Francis asked the Karmic Board for a special Dispensation to allow Him to function publicly in a physical tangible Resurrection Body among embodied mankind. He was granted this request, and on May 1, 1684 Francis Illumined and Raised his lower bodies, with full Christ Mastery of the Forces of Nature - thereafter functioning in his Resurrected Body.
      • Francis became the "Wonderman of Europe" in the 1700s A.D., working with embodied individuals in Europe, England, and America to further the Cause of Freedom and the Advancement of Learning. He used various pseudonyms such as Count Saint Germain, Marquis de Montferrat, Comte Bellamarre of Aymar at Venice, Chevalier Schoening at Pisa, Chevaller Weldon at Milan and Leipzig, Comte Soltikoff at Genoa and Leghor, Graf Tzarogy at Dresden, and Comte de St. Germain at Paris, the Hague, London, and St. Petersburg. He developed a reputation of being an outstanding alchemist, scholar, linguist, musician, artist and diplomat. He worked behind the scenes to try to establish a United States of Europe and to prevent the bloodshed of violent revolution. His powers included bilocation, appearing at court and then dissolving his form at will, removing flaws from diamonds and other precious stones, and precipitating an elixir that prevented aging. He was also ambidextrous and could compose simultaneously a letter with one hand and poetry with the other, or two identical pieces of writing with each hand. He visited Marie Antoinette and her intimate friend, Madame d'Adhémar, who later wrote the story of his abilities as an Adept, and that he had warned of the coming debacle and death of the king and queen. He also worked behind the scenes with George Washington and Benjamin Franklin to establish the United States of America.
      • Between 1790 and 1875 Francis completed his Ascension, becoming the Ascended Master Saint Germain. Soon after, the Office of Chohan of the Seventh Ray was transfered to him from Kwan Yin. Saint Germain is now known as "The God of Freedom" for the Earth and, since May 1, 1954, the Hierarch for the "Dawning Golden Age" in this current Aquarian Age cycle. The name "Saint Germain" is the name that Francis Bacon chose as his Ascended Master name upon his physical Ascension. It comes from the Latin Sanctus Germanus, meaning "Holy Brother".

"I have stood in the Great Hall in the Great Central Sun. I have petitioned the Lords of Karma to release Dispensation after Dispensation for the Sons and Daughters of God and, yes, for the Torch Bearers of The Temple. Countless times I have come to your assistance with a release of Violet Flame sufficient to clear all debris from your consciousness. Numberless times I have engaged the Love of my Heart to embrace you, to comfort you, to assist you when you have not known which way to turn.

"I merely ask you to keep the watch, to hold fast to the Heart Flame of your own God Presence, to understand that your first allegiance is to the Mighty I AM. That you have no other Gods before the I AM THAT I AM. That you understand that to enter into a relationship with the Heart of Saint Germain requires that you likewise enter into a correct relationship with my Anointed Messengers. That you not speak ill of your brothers and sisters on the Path. That you hold them in the high esteem of the Office of their Christhood. That you cultivate the ability to see beyond the momentary travails of their own maya and illusions. That you keep the watch with your brothers and sisters whenever there is a need to hold the balance for returning karma. That by the Violet Flame you clear away the human debris, which might otherwise create such burden as to drown a lifestream beneath the karmic wave. That you follow my example and cultivate an understanding and compassionate Heart.

"Is this too much to ask? Throughout the ages, every Fellowship of the Brotherhood operating in the physical octave has been called to perform those selfsame acts of kindness, consideration, honor, and respect that transcend human ability. You are beginning to understand more and more of the Profound Nature of the Office of your Christhood. You know what is required to engage the Heart — the Sacrifice, the Wisdom and, yes, the surrender to the Will of God. Likewise, will you afford your brothers and sisters their own similar opportunity to rise God Victorious in all things presented to them by their Presence, by their Ascended Master Sponsors, and by the covering cherubim who attend to the altar of their Heart? Will you not afford them the grace and opportunity to attain their Victory? All the while holding the balance with your calls, your prayers, even your silent assistance, knowing that at some point you yourself either have been or will be assisted by that very one whom you help.

Beloved Saint Germain
Copyright © Marius Michael-George / Contact:

" . . . We love to have you call Us by Name, for that assures Us of your faith in Our Reality and Our willing Ability to accomplish that which you know needs to be done for the greater Freedom of Life. Be assured that We instantly answer every such Call made in earnest sincerity to Us in the Name and Authority of the Source of all Life, the beloved I AM Presence. Such calls give Us greater Freedom to act in your human world of affairs, for We must have your calls as Our Authority to act here. You see, We have victoriously passed through every human experience, finally obeying the Divine Command to 'Come up higher! Here abide always and go out no more!'

"However, such calling into action of Our Power in supplication or decree is not nearly so efficacious in the drawing of Our Personal Radiation of Love into your worlds and those of others whom you wish to help as is the practicing in daily living of the supreme God Qualities of Courtliness, Gentleness, Purity, and Forgiving Love. This Way of Life I endeavored to establish among the crowned heads of Europe and their courts some time ago, particularly in the court of France in the days when even after My Ascension I worked from My Home in Transylvania.

"O gracious reader, learn sincerely to reverence the very Presence of Life right within your own beating heart, for it is really the Living Presence of Almighty God within you! This constancy of 'practicing the Presence of God,' as that habit gathers momentum in your world and experience, will soon completely surround and actually seal you within an Aura of Grace, Beauty, Protection, Wisdom, and the Victorious Power of Divine Love in all you undertake.

"These Qualities will saturate all your activities, making your service acceptable to your own God Presence. Such a qualification of your own life, which you may make, will be lovingly stored by that Great God Presence within your Causal Body, which is the Storehouse of the good works of your service of all ages. This abides around your beloved I AM Presence in Its Octave of expression. And into that Octave you shall one day rise when you shall have purified, loved, and served enough. And that Presence will say to you: 'It is finished! Come up higher!' Thus is the Ascension individually attained.

"I AM Grateful indeed for your gratitude and reverence for My Words to you today. They are given to you so lovingly and freely for your Comfort, Illumination, and Peace.

"I AM the Flame of Freedom Itself in Action now in My Ascended Master Estate, and I now offer to you the Full Gathered Momentum of My Lifestream's Victorious Use of that Flame all through the ages. Call that Freedom Flame, that Violet Transmuting Flame, into action every day without fail and accept thereby all it can do for you. Add to Its Power all My feeling of Its Instantaneous Action and Full Adequacy to fill every human need.

"Opportunity is now knocking at the door of your consciousness as I offer to you My Victorious Momentum of the Ages in the use of the Freedom Flame. I offer It now so freely, so lovingly and hopefully, and remain your Eternal Friend of changeless Love, Light, and Truth - The Ascended Master Saint Germain

Beloved Saint Germain
through the Messenger, Mark Lyle Prophet,   1958,   U.S.A. (7)


"The Activities of the Great White Brotherhood are so diversified in their scope that it takes hundreds of Free God Beings to direct the various Lines of Force by which the progress of the race is ensured. At Shamballa you will see a steady stream of visitors passing to and from the Throne of the King, all of whom are engaged in widening the borders of God's Kingdom.

"It would be an utter impossibility for one Ascended Master to completely govern and execute the diversified activities of the Mind and Heart of God, then how much less could one unascended being attempt to so concentrate the Good that is planned for the progress of our Star (the earth) through the limited confines of a human consciousness. A moment's clear, unprejudiced thought will show the sanity of such a statement and the impossibility of such a service on the part of any one individual.

"If one unascended being could possibly provide the way and means of raising a planet and some ten billion souls to the Christ Estate, do you not think that the Avatars who have lived and who have embodied all the Christ Power of the Godhead would have performed this service? Yet, Buddha has come and gone - and even Jesus, leaving room for other lifestreams to offer the energies and talents of their individual worlds to this evolutionary scheme.

"In Our Octave, the Great White Brotherhood was formed by Sanat Kumara in order to raise the consciousness of some of the children of this planet to a point where they might become Lords of the Flame and then engage their Life Energies in teaching other members of the race how to so emit their own Self-generated Light. It is the Nature of God to allow His children the Opportunity of becoming co-creators with Him. In fact, it is the very reason for which the worlds were formed and men and women sent forth to experiment with energy that they might have the Joy of Creation through their own self-conscious endeavors.

"When an individual, or group of individuals, refuses to allow other lifestreams an opportunity to unfold, develop and assist in the Divine Plan, such channels are not expressing the generosity of the Godhead or the Great White Brotherhood, which is constantly endeavoring to secure the enrollment and cooperation of the Sons of Men."

" . . . All of you know quite well - I presume you have experienced it - that whenever you have followed the true promptings, of your Heart, you have not made mistakes; but when you have followed the impulses of the feeling world through the intellect, you have made many mistakes. That is why mankind have drawn themselves into these limitations today, because they have believed they could depend upon the intellect, which is accretion or information that they have gathered from without. Now that is human opinion. The difference between gathering human opinions through accretion and going directly to your God Presence, the Mighty I AM, from which all Intelligence comes, is a vastly different thing, is it not?

"When you come to understand and feel you can turn your attention to this God Presence above you and, through that Ray of Light and Energy, receive Its Mighty, Directing Intelligence, Its Limitless Supply of Exhaustless Energy, then you will know you can charge your body with Its Limitless Energy, with Its Mighty, Directing Intelligence until soon no mistakes will occur in your experience of the human octave. Then will you find harmony in your feelings maintained, and the Call to the Presence will suddenly charge a momentum of Perfection into activity through your body, then into your world. You will first find a great Peace and Harmony within your feeling world; then as that grows greater you will find that reaching out into your world of action wherever you move, and everyone you contact will feel that great Peace and Harmony. Therefore, you will have no difficulty in the achievement of whatever your Heart desires, provided it is constructive, provided the motive is right. If the motive is just and good, then there is no limit to that Power that will flood forth to make you a success in whatever your Heart desires. . . . "

In 1790, Saint Germain confided his future plans to his Austrian friend, Franz Graeffer, saying, " Tomorrow night I am off. I am much needed in Constantinople, then in England, there to prepare two new inventions which you will have in the next century -- trains and steamboats. Toward the end of this century I shall disappear out of Europe, and betake myself to the region of the Himalayas . I will rest; I must rest. Exactly in 85 years will people again set eyes on me. Farewell." (Kleine Wiener Memorien) Eighty-five years from that date brings us to 1875. Saint Germain played an important part in the early work of Theosophical Society.
