Ok, I will post these here in case people dont take the time to view your link.
According to AAB, the Hierarchy of Ascended Masters who are responsible for humanity's evolution are led by a trinity of Supreme Beings. This trinity
is explained in the following chart, taken from AAB's The Destiny of Nations, p.23
I. SHAMBALLA Will or Power Planetary head centre,
The Holy City Purpose . . Plan spiritual pineal gland.
Ruler:- Sanat Kumara, the Lord of the World.
The Ancient of Days.
II. THE HIERARCHY Love-Wisdom Planetary heart centre.
The new Jerusalem Consciousness.
Ruler:- The Christ.
The World Saviour.
III. HUMANITY Active Intelligence Planetary throat centre.
The city, standing foursquare Self-Consciousness.
Son of the Morning.
The Prodigal Son.
"AAB's trinity includes Sanat Kumara, The Christ (Maitreya), and Lucifer. And, although they are represented in the chart as distinct individuals,
their characteristics, as given by AAB, overlap to the point where they are almost indistinguishable from one another.
AAB refers to Sanat Kumara as the head of the Hierarchy, the Creator (although not the ultimate creator), the Eternal Youth, the Heavenly Man, and
most often as The Lord of the World. Supposedly he "descended" to the earth about 18 million years ago, and "sacrificed" himself to humanity, to
help guide us to divinity.
The Bible describes how Satan was thrown out of heaven and came down to earth. In Genesis the serpent convinced Eve to eat from the fruit of the Tree
of Knowledge of Good and Evil, promising that she would become as God. Through this successful corrupting of humanity Lucifer thereby became the
possessor of man and earth. When Jesus began His earthly ministry He spent forty days in the wilderness, and Satan came and offered Him the kingdoms
of the world: "All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for this is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou
therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine," (Luke 4:6-7). Satan was not making a bogus proposal, for all the kingdoms of the world had indeed
been "delivered unto him," and mankind with it. Jesus later referred to Satan as "the prince of this world" in John 12:31 and 14:30, and Paul
referred to him as "the god of this world" in 2 Corinthians 4, also describing the hierarchy of fallen angels as "the rulers," "the authorities"
and "the powers of this dark world" (Ephesians 6:12)."
"When AAB describes Sanat Kumara as The Lord of the World, she is merely referring to a cleverly repackaged Satan, the evil being in control of the
earth, the Adversary of God and man, who is constantly scheming and manipulating to keep us from the saving knowledge of the one true God and of our
Messiah, our way out of this mess."
"HPB describes Lucifer, or Satan the Adversary, as the Saviour, the ever-loving Messenger, but Jesus described him in totally opposite terms saying,
"He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies he speaks his native language, for he is
a liar and the father of lies," (Luke 8:44).
Blavatsky and Bailey view Jesus Christ with thinly veiled contempt. To them, the "Master Jesus" is an individual who is separate from Maitreya the
Christ. He is simply another Ascended Master just like Krishna, Buddha, Mohamed, etc. However, the story of this Master, as told by AAB is rather
peculiar. She writes that He was indeed the man who was crucified and then resurrected, but that He was able to do this only because He was
overshadowed by Maitreya the Christ. New Age theology is predicated on a regimented series of degrees, or levels, of spiritual evolution. According to
Bailey Jesus achieved the 5th degree at His resurrection, but He was then demoted back down to the 4th degree! In His next incarnation as Appollonius
of Tyana He finally re-established His 5th degree status. "
