In Theosophy and modern New Age beliefs, Serapis- Bei, sometimes spelled Serapis Bey, is one of the Ascended Masters. He is connected to the Temple of Ascension in Luxor, Egypt, and is said to be the Lord of the Fourth Ray. (See also: Lords of the Seven Rays).
Ellie Crystal, as well as other authors, however, refer to him as the Lord of the First or Red Ray, whereas Edmund Harold links him to the Purple and Violet Ray.
Ellie Crystal cites lifetimes as a priest in the Temple of Ascension in Atlantis, as the Egyptian pharaoh Amenhotep III, and as the Spartan King Leonidas.
Tony Stubbs, author of An Ascension Handbook, claims to channel Serapis, and claims Serapis, Toth and Hermes Trismegistos are one and the same. This is contradicted by most authors.
Serapis was also one of Madama Blavatsky's guides. (See Theosophy for more information).
