“Why do Indian gurus not recognize each other, mention the Ascended Masters, or talk about the Violet Consuming Flame? As you have lived in the Himalayas, I know you will have some insight into this.”
In the old days the enlightened gurus that Paramahansa Yogananda wrote about in “Autobiography of a Yogi,” did recognize and honor each other. However, the new line of “gurus” are not enlightened and are motivated more by the desire for wealth, fame, and power, so are in competition with each other and thus do not mention competitors. Most have not done any serious tapas (austere spiritual practice) and have simply put on special hats and white robes, and called themselves gurus to attract gullible Westerners.
The real yogis of old went into seclusion for many years before they were recognized for their spiritual attainment. For example, Ramana Maharshi lived in a cave and the Tibetan lama, Dilgo Khentse Rinpoche, spent twelve years in a cave in the Himalayas, generating heat through inner tuomo practice to keep from freezing (It can take up to three years of daily practice to develop this inner heat, and must be started early in life). Also, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, with whom I meditated, spent twenty years in a mountain cave. Both these men honored and respected each other. I lived for a brief time in the Himalayas with yogis who were students of Babaji, and they were like a brotherhood who all honored and kept in touch with each other. When you are in the consciousness of the One, there is no “other” anyway.
In India, they do not use the term “Ascended Master,” as that term began with Baird Spalding in his books, “The Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East,” written in the early 20th century and popularized by Godfre Ray King in the 1930s. In India the term “Mahasiddha” (meaning great, fully realized being), is used instead. Babaji is a Mahasiddha. He no longer maintains a physical body, yet can appear in physical or etheric form as his work requires, so is what we would call in the West an Ascended Master.
Another reason why Indian teachers do not mention Western spiritual concepts such as the Violet Consuming Flame or the Sword of Blue Flame, is because these teachings are not in their tradition, having been given in the West by the Ascended Master Saint Germain to Godfre Ray King in the 1930s. Also, Saint Germain first became known in Europe in the 18th century, and later in America, as his work was to bring in the New Age teachings of self-knowledge and self-mastery in a simplified form. Thus, he was unknown in India until recently. Again, the modern gurus who are popular today do not mention these teachings, as their training (if any) has not introduced them to these powerful teachings.
I hope this answers your question.

I would like to answer from my knowledge about that theme. A Kriya yogi master described Ascended Masters in his book as the Great White Lodge. He also mentioned Saint Germain. In Sri M's autobiography there is mentioned the Violet Flame and blue light. Sri M mentioned that while meditating with his Master a violet light filled his mind and had great healing properties. Yet how to invoke it is not described. Sathya Sai Baba told a lady that He can go anywhere in the World. He said "I just go up into my Light body," the same as going into the I Am Presence. Om.
The complete, updated texts of I AM the Violet Tara, Goddess of Forgiveness and Freedom combined with I AM Violet Tara in Action, Lessons in Mastery.
This is an essential text to learn how to invoke the Violet Consuming Flame employing the advanced tantric methods of Tibetan Buddhism. It may sound complicated but is actually quite simple, as well as spiritually rewarding.
Using the simple methods in this book you become an instrument of healing and peace for humanity.

The Tibetan Lama known as the XVI Karmapa, meditating on and invoking the Buddha of Compassion prior to performing the Black Crown Ceremony. The photo was taken in San Francisco in the 1970s by an elderly woman who did not know that cameras were not permitted in the shrine room during this sacred event. It was sent to me by someone who was present at the time. In this photo the tapestry behind him can be clearly seen through his head. He was not moving, but in deep meditation. This increase in his vibration was not visible to the audience and only showed up when the film was developed (not taken with a digital camera).
As we meditate we can all invoke that same Rainbow Body, the I AM Presence, to come down, enter into us, and radiate out to bless humanity. This is the beauty and simplicity of the I AM Teachings. Try it!
You can say and feel: I AM the Presence of the Living Buddha (or Christ) blessings humanity!
