Lords of the Flame (or Children of the Fire
Adepts, or manasaputras (sons of mind), sent from the planet
Venus to aid terrestrial evolution. According to Theosophy,
Venus was considered in advance of the Earth in the evolution
of the Solar System. The efforts of these adepts directed towards
intellectual development enable the inhabitants of the
Earth to become further advanced than could be expected in
the ordinary course of events. These adepts are not permanent
inhabitants of the Earth, and, while a few remain, most of them
have already returned to Venus, the time of crisis during which
they assisted having now passed.
