"Our Beloved Ascended Master Saint Germain" by Charles Sindelar, 1930s

Saint Germain is one of the most popular and well-known of the Ascended Masters in the New Age tradition that has lineal descent from Theosophy and the I AM Activity. Madame Blavatsky (1831-1891), the founder of Theosophy, and her pupil, Annie Besant (1847-1933), both claimed to have met the Count Saint Germain, although at the time he was traveling under another name. Guy Warren Ballard (1878-1931) claimed to have met Saint Germain on Mount Shasta in California in August 1930. On the strength of Saint Germain's teachings, Ballard and his wife Edna Anne Wheeler Ballard (1886-1971) founded the I AM Activity and the Saint Germain Press to disseminate the communications of Saint Germain and other Ascended Masters. The Summit Lighthouse also venerates Saint Germain as an Ascended Master.

Saint Germain is an ancient spiritual guide and wisdom-teacher who is associated with the seventh or violet ray of mystical knowledge. Among members of the New Age tradition, it is believed that he took physical incarnation in Atlantis, circa 11000 BCE, where he was a high priest in the Temple of Purification, a healing shrine under the direction of the Order of Zadkiel. After the sinking of Atlantis, it is said that he incarnated as the Jewish prophet and spiritual figure Samuel, although most Jews do not think this to be true. He is also said to have incarnated as Saint Joseph and Saint Alban, although Christians would dispute such claims. Another of his incarnations is said to have been Merlin, the magical mentor to King Arthur of the ancient Britons. His final human lifetime is said to have been as the English philosopher, scientist, and statesman Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626), who, according to this system of belief, is said to have been the actual composer of the plays and poems of the English author William Shakespeare (1564-1616). It was only after this final incarnation that he took on the appearance of the historical Count Saint Germain (1710-1784), a European adventurer, scientist, philosopher, and alchemist. While some believe that through the use of alchemy, the Count Saint Germain achieved immortality, hence his death date is spurious, members of the I AM movement believe that both the birth and death dates given for the Count Saint Germain are mere notational conveniences used by the actual Master Saint Germain, the helper of humanity. As the Chohan of the Seventh Ray, Saint Germain, along with the Ascended Master Lady Portia, will usher in the coming Aquarian Age.

Master Saint Germain is identified by the colour violet. His hair and eyes are shades of violet and he wears violet and golden clothing, often with with golden braid and Maltese cross insignias. The amethyst is his gem, so his symbolic jewelry can take the form of amethyst beads alternating with small gold beads, an amethyst set into a golden bezel, or an amethyst set in the center of a golden Maltese Cross pendant or pin. His identification is so entwined with the I AM Movement that the Saint Germain Press has printed hundreds of pamphlets and books in purple ink to honour his influence. A saying attributed to Saint Germain and repeated as an affirmative prayer is:

"In the Fulness of the Presence is the Love that you require!
In the Fulness of the Presence are the things that you desire!'
