Mahātmā Morya is one of the "Masters of the Ancient Wisdom" within modern Theosophical beliefs. He is one of the Mahatmas who inspired the founding of the Theosophical Society and was engaged in a correspondence with two English Theosophists living in India, A. Sinnett and A. Hume.
According to the Ascended Masters teachings, some of the later incarnations that Morya is said to have had include:
- Melchior, one of the three wise men—the one who gave myrrh to Jesus.
- Abraham is the founding father of the covenant of the pieces, the special relationship between the Hebrews and God; in Christianity, he is the prototype of all believers, Jewish or Gentile; and in Islam he is seen as a link in the chain of prophets that begins with Adam and culminates in Muhammad.
- Arthur, the legendary king of Camelot developed as a figure of international interest largely through the popularity of Geoffrey of Monmouth's fanciful and imaginative 12th-century Historia Regum Britanniae.
- Thomas Becket (Archbishop of Canterbury)
- Thomas More venerated in the Catholic Church as Saint Thomas More
- Akbar the Great was the third Mughal emperor, who reigned from 1556 to 1605.
- Sergius of Radonezh
Students of Agni Yoga believe that Master Morya ascended in 1898, becoming an Ascended Master and Chohan of the First Ray, and that his spiritual retreat is located at Darjeeling (British India). William Quan Judge, the leader of the American Section of the Theosophical Society, stated privately that he had received letters from Morya and other Adepts. Annie Besant, head of the European Section and co-head of the Esoteric Section with Judge, made public statements supporting the genuineness of those letters; but she later accused Judge of falsifying them, asserting that her suspicions of him were confirmed by the visitation of a Mahatma, presumably Master Morya, to whom she was linked.
