The Comte de Saint Germain was a Europeancourtier, with an interest in science and the arts. He achieved prominence in European high society of the mid-1700s. In order to deflect inquiries as to his origins, he would invent fantasies, such as that he was 500 years old, leading Voltaire to ironically dub him "The Wonderman".
His birth and background are obscure, but towards the end of his life he claimed that he was a son of Prince Francis II Rákóczi of Transylvania.
Saint Germain Foundation, a spiritual organization in Northern California ,Frivolous as their life may seem, members of nobility needed mystical truth to be imparted to their souls and unfolding Inner selves. And so St. Germain set himself to give guidance and instruction of high spiritual level to some of these leaders or leaders-to-be who were tired of the fictitious and hypocritical manners and etiquette of social life and whose education was rigid and shallow and, in that sense, deprived of natural spontaneity. He also contacted -and contacts- Rosicrucians and mystics of the highest degrees to help them with their social manners and ethical development. In conjunction with other ascended masters associated with the sacred violet flame, he trains and activates this energy in their bodies.
His teachings, being known also as the I AM Presence, are today presented worldwide by various mystical and metaphysical organizations not associated with each other. No one can claim ownership of these teachings as no one can claim ownership of the air you breath or the law of gravity, since the violet flame is a universal solvent and agent, a spiritual law available to anyone.
As sponsor of the Aquarian Age, Saint-Germain brings the Violet Flame teachings for peace, freedom and enlightenment to humankind. The Violet Flame is the ideal tool to heal emotional and physical problems, improve relationships and help grow spiritually. This flame is invoked using decrees or mantras said rhythmically while utilizing meditation and visualization techniques.
In a three dimensional world of the present paradigm the law of polarity and duality manifests implacable as Karma in human affairs. The Violet Flame being a higher spiritual law of the fourth dimensional world and beyond is able to overcome this lower law of cause and effect by transmuting the negative energy and even erasing memories of past mistakes. This flame changes negative into positive and darkness into light.
For pleasure in life drags a man down only when it is carried to excess. It may be that there exists a way by which a man may attain the highest spirituality and yet keep this pleasure.
Yet the part he played in the spiritual sphere was considerable. He was the architect who drew the plans for a work that is as yet only on the stocks. But he was an architect betrayed by the workmen. He had dreamed of a high tower that should enable man to communicate with heaven, and the workmen preferred to build houses for eating and sleeping.
It was this immortality of the spirit that Saint-Germain tried to bring to a small group of chosen initiates. He believed that this minority, once it was developed itself, would, in its turn, help to develop another small number, and that a vast spiritual radiation would gradually descend, in beneficent waves, towards the more ignorant masses. It was a sage's dream, which was never to be realized.
