Master Paul the Venetian, the Chohan of third ray
Paul the Venetian is chohan of the third ray of divine love. He is hierarch of the etheric retreat, the Château de Liberté, located on the etheric plane over southern France on the Rhône River. Paul the Venetian or the Venetian Chohan is one of the "Masters of the Ancient Wisdom" in the teachings of Theosophy.
Paul the Venetian is a majestic being of some six feet, five inches in height. He is fair of countenance with deep blue eyes and golden, wavy hair. He is usually garbed in raiment of emerald-green velvet. Since he is a native of the planet Venus, where the inhabitants are masters of the Flame and therefore radiate harmony and divine love, Paul's natural heritage is beauty and grace, diplomacy and tact. His voice is melodious and kind, bringing comfort and peace to all who come in contact with his Presence.
The ascended master Paul the Venetian is a great teacher of the path of love. His devotion is to beauty, the perfection of the soul through compassion, patience, understanding, self-discipline and the development of the intuitive and creative faculties of the heart by the alchemy of self-sacrifice, selflessness and surrender.
He initiates the heart chakra, and he trains us in the gift of the discerning of spirits—discerning good and evil, light and shadow and the delicate nuances of all of our creations of beauty. Discernment is a real inner sensitivity to one another.
Paul sponsors the ascended master culture of Beauty and Truth for this age and works with all—artists, musicians, architects, designers and craftsmen—who desire to bring that culture forth on behalf of mankind. The culture of the ascended masters, of Light and Beauty, is the keystone in the pyramid of the golden age. The ascended masters have pointed out that it is through culture—music, drama,architecture and art—that mankind will respond to spiritual truths and the teachings of the Great White Brotherhood.
