Sananda is the name for a refiguring of the resurrected Jesus Christ, who was claimed to reside on the planet Clarion by Dorothy Martin, and who Martin stated was the origin of messages she had received, predicting, among other things, that the world would be destroyed on 21 December 1954. Although the prophecy of worldly destruction did not come to pass, Martin continued to promote the message of Sananda, first spending time abroad in Peru as a member of the Brotherhood of the Seven Rays, and eventually returning to the United States where she established the Association of Sananda and Sumat Kumara at Mt. Shasta, California.
