"Ramtha" (the name is claimed to be derived from Ram and to mean "the God" in Ramtha's language) is a reputed entity whom Knight says she channels. According to her, Ramtha was a Lemurian warrior who fought the Atlanteans over 35,000 years ago. Ramtha is the central figure (the "master teacher") of Ramtha's School of Enlightenment, started by Knight in 1987 near the town Yelm, Washington. Classes (or "dialogues") had been held around the world for the previous 10 years. There are currently over 6,000 students of her teachings.

When Knight says she is channeling Ramtha she speaks mostly in English in what sounds like an accent from the British Raj.

In her teachings "Ramtha" has made several controversial statements.

She brought a suit against Julie Ravell for disturbing her psychic state and leaving her "hanging in spiritual limbo" during the five years Ravell claimed she was also channeling Ramtha. The case lasted over five years, at the end of which Austria's supreme court awarded her copyright as the sole channeler of Ramtha, and Ravell was made to pay $800 in psychic damages.

Knight also refused to attend court as a witness in a case involving a 15-year-old who claimed rape against two students of Ramtha's School of Enlightenment. [cited Wikipedia]

The four cornerstones of Knight's philosophy are:

  1. The statement 'You are god'

  2. The directive to make known the unknown

  3. The concept that consciousness and energy create the nature of reality

  4. The challenge to conquer yourself
