Helena Blavatsky stated that K.H. and Master Morya worked with her to present the theosophical teachings she formulated in her books Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine. A.P. Sinnett, A. O. Hume and others also wrote documents they described as having been dictated by Kuthumi. Some of these letters formed the basis for several books by Sinnett. They are also a main part of The Mahatma Letters, a compiled book of letters to Mr. Sinnett from K.H. and Morya.

Alice Bailey also wrote that she had met Koot Hoomi on June 30, 1895. Bailey stated that he appeared to her as a turbaned man of non-European ethnicity dressed in a European-style suit.[3][4]

According to a December 1919 revelation to Alice A. Bailey, the Master K.H. directs the activities of the blue and rose colored devas, who guard the churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples of the world. She states the Master K.H.'s interests lie with all those who strive after the ideal, and live for the helping of others.[5]

According to later versions of Theosophy as taught by C.W. Leadbeater, Alice A. Bailey, and Benjamin Creme, Koot Hoomi is considered the Master of the "Second Ray of Wisdom" (See Seven Rays). Beginning January 1, 1956, Ascended Master Teachings organizations consider him to be the World Teacher (along with Jesus), having replaced Maitreya in that Office in Earth's Hierarchy.[6]

[edit] Incarnations

It is believed by Theosophists as well as in the Ascended Master Teachings that Koot Hoomi (Kuthumi) was previously incarnated as Pythagoras.[7][8]

Elena Ivanovna Roerich asserted in her letters (dated 13.08.38 and 17.03.38. that "Pericles [c. 495 – 429 BC, statesman of Athens] in his former life was Pythagoras" and that "Pericles, and the Great Master KH are one Individuality". Also according traditional records referred by Immanuel M. Sykes and another author,[who?] Kuthumi lived in Egypt in 14th century B. C. in a community of mystics, which was founded in Lake Moeris by the Master Morya or "Moria-El". Before that, according to Sykes as well as according to Elizabeth Clare Prophet, he was Pharaoh Thutmose III [9][10] and after, in another life, according to Sykes, he was said to have been known by Zoroaster as "Kethumant" or "Kai-et-Hu-Mata".[9]

According to the Ascended Master Teachings of Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Kuthumi was incarnated as Balthasar, one of the Three Wise Men, said to have been a king of Ethiopia, who gave the gift of frankincense to the baby Jesus.[11]

According to Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Kuthumi was also incarnated as the Roman Catholic saint Francis of Assisi and as Shah Jahan, the Mogul Emperor of the Mogul Empire in India, who constructed the Taj Mahal.[12]

According to the Ascended Master teachings of Ann Ree Colton, KH was St. Francis of Assisi, St. Luke, and Hippocrates. According to these same teachings, Jesus was Pythagoras.

[edit] Appearance in literature

Kuthumi is listed as a Sanskrit name for a teacher or author of a law book in the Sanskrit to English Dictionary by Monier Monier-Williams, Ernst Leumann, & Carl Cappeller.[13]

An slight variation of the name Kuthumi appears as Kauthumi. "Kauthumi" is mentioned as the Son of a Brahmin named "Hiranyanabha" in part of the Vedas in the Handbook of Hindu Mythology By George Mason Williams. The name of Kauthumi's father, "Hiranyanabha" means, "he who has a belly like gold" and is synonymous with "Hiranyagarbha."

Koot Hoomi is also the central figure of worship in the Christian-based religious ethic of the Rani in Aldous Huxley's "Island".

Koot Hoomi (Kut Humi Lul Singh) is the guru of archeologist and supernatural investigator Martin Mystère and his archnemesis Sergej Orloff, in the Italian fantastic comic book Martin Mystère. In the series, Kut Humi lives in the lost city of Agarthi and appears sporadically in the series as deus ex machina and/or spiritual advisor. In Xanadu adventure, it is revealed that he was a former Nazi officer called Donitz who achieved enlightenment on his search for Agarthi and there assumed the name of his forerunner.[14]

[edit] Skeptical views

Christian missionaries sought to discredit Blavatsky and disprove the existence of the Mahatmas, Kuthumi and El Morya. The Rev. George Patterson published, The Collapse of Koot Hoomi in The Madras Christian College Magazine (Madras, India), September 1884,[15] after being presented with letters from Madame Coulomb implicating Blavatsky in a ruse. After the British press utilized this story to discredit Blavatsky, Blavatsky filed a lawsuit against the Coulombs for slander and the whole ordeal became known as "The Coulomb Conspiracy"[16] or "The Coulomb Affair."

Elliott Coues, who published the book entitled, Kuthumi: The True and Complete Oeconomy of Human Life, Based on the System of Theosophical Ethics went on to refer to Kuthumi as the "mythical Koot Hoomi" in a published article entitled, Blavatsky Unvieled! in "The Sun" four years later.(Sunday, July 20, 1890).[17]

The article “Talking to the Dead and Other Amusements” by Paul Zweig New York Times October 5, 1980, claims Madame Blavatsky's revelations are fraudulent.

[edit] Other views

The scholar K. Paul Johnson hypothesizes that the "Masters" that Madame Blavatsky wrote about and produced letters from were actually idealizations of people who were her mentors. Johnson asserts that the "Master Kuthumi" was actually Sardar Thakur Singh Sandhānwāliā (1837-1887), a member of the Singh Saba, an Indian independence movement organization and Sikh reform movement.[18]
