Serapis Bey is the Chohan or Lord of the Fourth Ray and a member of the Great White Brotherhood. He reputedly trained Henry Steel Olcott (1832–1907), who along with Helena Blavatsky founded the mystical-spiritual system of Theosophy. Olcott was the first president of the Theosophical Society.
As far as is known, Serapis Bey’s first incarnation was as a high priest in Atlantis. Following the violent destruction of the lost continent, he travelled to Egypt where he incarnated as Pharaoh Amenhotep III, responsible for Ammon’s temple complex at Luxor. Other incarnations included Leonidas, King of Sparta, and the Greek master sculptor Phidias. He is identified with the Alexandrian deity Serapis. Serapis Bey is associated with Muladhara the root chakra, also known as the base-of-the-spine chakra.
Serapis Bey is usually depicted as a man wearing a white turban or headdress.
