WHAT IS THE KEEPERS OF THE FLAME FRATERNITY?
The Keepers of the Flame Fraternity comes forth in the tradition of ancient spiritual orders. Saint Germain founded the fraternity in Washington, D.C., in 1961 through his Messenger, Mark L. Prophet. As Knight Commander of the fraternity, Saint Germain has pledged to see this earth through to a golden age of freedom, peace and enlightenment.
Along with Saint Germain come other ascended masters to help the earth. They are referred to in the Book of Revelation as the “saints robed in white.” They and their unascended disciples form The Great White Brotherhood. (“White” does not refer to race but to the aura of white light that surrounds these masters.) The Keepers of the Flame Fraternity is an outer branch of The Great White Brotherhood.
Mark L. Prophet and Elizabeth Clare Prophet are the Messengers of the Great White Brotherhood. Mark founded The Summit Lighthouse in 1958 to publish and distribute the Brotherhood’s teachings. In 1973 his soul reunited with God and he became the Ascended Master Lanello.
Elizabeth Clare Prophet, world-renowned author, lecturer and spiritual teacher, continued the legacy, pioneering techniques in practical spirituality, including the creative power of sound for character development, personal growth and world transformation. She is the author of such popular titles as Odyssey of Your Soul, Fallen Angels Among Us, Fallen Angels and the Origins of Evil, The Lost Years of Jesus, The Lost Teachings of Jesus series, Saint Germain On Alchemy and the Pocket Guides to Practical Spirituality series. The unpublished works of Mark L. Prophet and Elizabeth Clare Prophet continue to be published by Summit University Press. A wide selection of their books have been translated into a total of 31 languages and are sold worldwide.
In The Keepers of the Flame Fraternity, Elizabeth Clare Prophet holds the office of Mother of the Flame, and thus her students have addressed her lovingly as “Mother.” The Brotherhood has appointed successive women to this position to nourish, or mother, the flame of life on earth.
Today, The Keepers of the Flame Fraternity is a world-wide community of spiritual seekers who are dedicated to keeping the flame of life. The Keepers of the Flame Fraternity lessons are now available online, supplemented with dynamic materials designed to accommodate many different learning styles.

WHAT IS THE FLAME?
The flame is a spiritual fire within your heart. It’s the divine spark that was never born and never dies. It’s the flame of life—your own portion of the Spirit that was given to you when your soul was born out of the Infinite.
WHY DOES IT NEED TO BE KEPT?
Just as you tend the fire in your fireplace, you need to tend the flame. Long ago on earth, before recorded history, fewer and fewer people tended the flame until there was not one person with a flame burning on the altar of the heart. It was a dark age when all had forgotten their divine source. Then Sanat Kumara, mentioned in the Book of Daniel as the Ancient of Days, came to earth to reignite the flame and teach others to tend it. In each age since, there have been great Lights on earth who kept the flame going and then returned to the Spirit. These great Lights of the East and West include Gautama Buddha, Moses, Jesus Christ, Kuan Yin, Krishna, Confucius—and in this age, Saint Germain.
