I know what you’re searching for.

If you’re like us – a seeker of truth and a person who is hungry for ancient wisdom, you’re probably willing to ‘climb the mountain’ so you can see a masters and glean words of wisdom like, “Why are we here or what’s the meaning of life…”

The problem is, most of us don’t have the time to climb the mountain – assuming you can find the right mountain in the first place.

So what’s the alternative?

Well, we’ve decided to bring the mountain and all the masters’ wisdom all in one place.

But first…

Who Are Ascended Masters And Why They Matter?

Ascended masters go by many names like Sadgurus, perfect masters, enlightened masters… they are all the same.

The term ascended master is referred to a being, who through his spiritual work, raised his consciousness and vibration to such level where he was able to complete his or her karma and attain ‘God realization’.

In other words, the ascended master is ‘God’ in the flesh – the highest source of energy and wisdom on the planet.

They make up the spiritual hierarchy of the earth, and their presence can be traced through human spiritual thought and religion from the modern era all the way back into prehistory.

(Think of it like a spiritual multi-level marketing. An ascended master sits right at the top of the cosmic pyramid.)

While Ascended Masters and their wisdom come in many forms, they all originate from the one true source and what they teach transcends the dogmas of all religions, all races, all nations, both genders, and share only the common thread of the universality of the spiritual quest of humanity.

This is the most transcended form of equality.

The wisdom of ascended masters also stand the test of time. Thousands of years even after they have transited, their wisdom is cemented in the minds of men and women and perpetuated by their billions of followers throughout the centuries.

You will recognize an ascended master is recognizable by their energy and people are drawn to their wisdom.

2 Honorable Mentions…

Before getting into the no.1 on the list, there are two more honorable mentions:

Ramana Maharshi

Ramana Maharshi, who was born in 1879 and died in 1950, was a Hindu Sage.

But more than that, he was recognized as an Ascended Master.

According to this body of thought, whose origins lie in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, certain people throughout history—often, but not always, religious figures— are human beings who have ascended to a higher plane because they were so enlightened throughout their lifetime.

Much of Ramana’s teachings focused on the concept of the self, which is possessed with life force.

He taught that happiness should be sought via knowing oneself. One could not achieve this happiness—this form of self-realization—unless they knew themselves properly. The self is permanent, and endures beyond physical death.

According to him, our true nature is that of being, free from all thought, and that all states of beings—sleeping, dreaming and waking—are all phenomena of the self.


Melchizedek is an important figure in the Old Testament, notable because he is the first figure to be both king and priest.

He was revered by Abraham – another Ascended Master and the patriarch of the Judeo-Christian as well as Muslim religions, who honored Melchizedek as a ‘type’ of Christ.

Melchizidek is widely recognized as an earlier incarnation of Jesus Christ – a high priest of the highest order.

He also teaches the universality of Christ – even though Melchizedek is only mentioned in three books of the Bible, and while not many details of who he is are offered, all of them are symbolically linked with the savior.

No.1 – Meher Baba

At the top of our list is Meher Baba.

He was considered to be the last avatar of our time.

Merwan Sheriar Irani was born in 25 February 1894 in Pune, India.

He believed that He was the Christ, back again not to teach something new but to awaken others to their true spiritual nature.
