The world has had enough...of hunger, injustice, war.

Imagine a world free of war, poverty and injustice—where sharing and cooperation have replaced greed and competition. What could bring about such a change? Only extraordinary, wise, incorruptible leadership—working with people of goodwill from every corner of the earth. According to British author and esotericist Benjamin Creme, that leadership is now among us. A colossal spiritual Teacher has entered our world and will soon begin his open, public work with humanity.

For many, an understanding is already dawning that we cannot proceed into the future while millions starve and perish for want of food that lies rotting in the storehouses of the world. The current path of greed and competition no longer meets the needs of our world, and a new way forward must be found if we are to prevent certain disaster.

Maitreya, the World Teacher, will demonstrate the path of cooperation and sharing, and guide humanity forward into an age of peace and right relationship among all nations.

Benjamin Creme sums up this powerful message of hope:

“As we enter into a new cosmic cycle, under the influence of energies from the constellation Aquarius, humanity stands on the threshold of a new and brilliant civilization. This unprecedented period in human history will be ushered in by a group of highly advanced men, the Masters of Wisdom, who for countless millennia have, from behind the scenes, guided the course of human evolution. At their head, and now physically present in the world, is Maitreya, the World Teacher.”
Benjamin Creme, author
The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom
Who is Maitreya?

In every age, or in times of exceptional crisis, great spiritual teachers have come forth to show humanity its next evolutionary step. We have known some of them as Hercules, Rama, Krishna, Mohammed, Buddha, and the Christ. Now, at the dawning of the Aquarian age, Maitreya, the head of the Masters of Wisdom and our eldest brother, has returned to the everyday world for the first time in thousands of years to inaugurate the age and to guide us out of the perilous situation we have created for ourselves...

He has been expected for generations by the major religions under different names—as the Christ by Christians, Krishna by Hindus, the Imam Mahdi by Muslims, the Messiah by the Jews, Maitreya Buddha by the Buddhists. His coming fulfills each of their prophecies, but he is not a religious teacher. Rather, he is here as an educator in the broadest sense—as the World Teacher for all humanity, religious or not. He has not come to judge, but to inspire us to make the inner and outer changes necessary for our own survival and further evolutionary growth.

Maitreya descended from his ancient retreat in the Himalayas in July of 1977 to take up residence in the Asian community of London, England, which continues to be his point of focus in the modern world. From there, as an apparently ordinary man, he works behind the scenes, directing his transforming energies to every corner of the earth. His primary concerns are the economic, political and social imbalances in the world today, and the spiritual crisis at their root.

Who are the Masters?

The Masters of Wisdom, together forming our Spiritual Hierarchy, are the custodians of the Divine Plan for this planet. They have inspired all the great human achievements age after age, working from behind the scenes through their disciples in every field of endeavor. The Masters guide and teach, but it is humanity itself, responding of its own free will to their stimulus, which creates each new civilization...

The existence of the Masters of Wisdom became public knowledge after 1875 through the writings of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, who lived among the Masters in the Himalayas for three years and later founded the Theosophical Society. In the 1900s, Alice A. Bailey wrote 24 volumes on the Ageless Wisdom teachings, most under the telepathic impression of a Tibetan Master. These books discuss topics such as the nature of the soul, the Spiritual Hierarchy of Masters, meditation, esoteric psychology, and the reappearance of the Christ. Benjamin Creme continues the Ageless Wisdom tradition in over a dozen books, simplifying and bringing the teachings up to date for a modern public, and announcing the entry of the World Teacher into our everyday lives.

We are at the 11th hour. Soon, Maitreya will present us with two alternative scenarios of the future from which we must choose. We can continue in the selfish, greedy ways of the past and destroy ourselves and all life on earth, or we can accept the Principle of Sharing and create a brilliant new civilization that will guarantee a peaceful and prosperous future for humanity.
Although it is our decision which path to take, Maitreya assures us, “My heart tells me your answer, your choice, and is glad.” He foresees that we will accept his guidance and rebuild our world along more just and compassionate lines—the only basis for lasting peace.
Maitreya’s Priorities

Maitreya will emphasize the utter necessity for peace and a total renunciation of war. This can only be achieved through the creation of justice for all people and trust among the nations.

The immediate priority will be the saving of millions of people now starving to death in the developing world. Maitreya will propose a crash program of international aid to alleviate this suffering.

Inspiring humanity to see itself as one interdependent family, he will help us understand that the world’s food, raw materials, energy and technological resources belong to everyone and must be shared equitably. These resources, he says, are given by divine right for the sustenance of all humanity—not for the use and misuse by a relative few. He will recommend a re-ordering of economic priorities so that adequate food, housing, education and medical care become universal rights.

the world’s resources
and save the world

As we begin to accept the Principle of Sharing and call on governments to implement this principle, each country will make an inventory of its assets and needs. These statistics will provide a United Nations agency set up for this purpose with the information required for a rational redistribution of the world’s resources. That which each country has in excess of its needs will be put aside, in trust for the world.

The plans for such a redistribution program—drawn up by economists, financiers and industrialists of great achievement—are already in existence, awaiting only our demand for their implementation. A sophisticated form of barter on a global scale will eventually replace the present economic system.

Another top priority will be saving, protecting, and healing the environment. This will require the creation of economic systems based on the principles of sustainability and sufficiency, rather than the present system of overproduction and waste. The goal is to supply the needs of all while maintaining the planet’s health.

Evidence of Maitreya’s Presence
Three kinds of evidence point to Maitreya’s presence in the world today: astonishing and unlikely political changes, appearances by Maitreya to groups and individuals, and an increasing incidence of miraculous events throughout the world.

Political changes – In the political arena, dramatic, unexpected changes stimulated by Maitreya’s influence started over three decades ago when East and West Germany reunited after the destruction of the Berlin Wall, the Soviet Union dissolved into independent states, the Cold War ended, and the election of Nelson Mandela to the South African Presidency ended apartheid there. Since then, rampant corruption worldwide in government and business has been exposed, and the ever-growing “voice of the people” continues to demand economic and social justice for all people, as well as restoration and protection of the environment. These voices challenge repressive regimes everywhere.

Appearances – These political breakthroughs allowed more open signs of Maitreya’s presence to be manifested. World leaders and ordinary citizens alike began to experience him in person and in dreams.

In one instance he appeared miraculously at a Nairobi, Kenya religious gathering, where 6,000 worshippers recognized him as the Christ, and many were healed. Photographs of Maitreya were taken and a Kenya Times account was reported by international news organizations.

Since then, he and several other Masters have increased this activity by appearing to people in all walks of life. They appear in many guises, offering needed insights or protection from harm, and always strengthening a person’s faith and hope for the future.

Unexplained phenomena – Signs of Maitreya’s presence in the world—which many call miracles—are also manifesting on a regular basis. They include weeping and bleeding statues; ‘crosses of light’ and springs of healing water; divine messages in the seed patterns of fruits and vegetables; bronze and stone sacred statues that appear to drink milk; and intricate ‘crop circles’ impressed in grain fields. The most recent of these events is a large, brilliant ‘star’, visible both night and day around the world, heralding Maitreya’s first public interview, which took place in December 2009 on a major American television network.

In many countries, statues and icons of Jesus and the Virgin Mary are seen to weep tears, blood and oil. In another manifestation, this 35 ft image of the Madonna suddenly appeared on the windows of a bank building in Clearwater, Florida in 1996. Many viewing it claim to have been healed. After the image was damaged by vandals, it miraculously reappeared.

This cross of light appeared in a window in Krasnodar, Russia, in August 2012. First reported in El Monte, California in 1988, these even-armed crosses have since been reported from around the world. Healings of physical and emotional conditions are often associated with their presence.

On September 21, 1995, news swept around the world of miraculous ‘milk-drinking’ Hindu statues. At the Vishwa Temple in Southhall London, 10,000 people witnessed the phenomenon within 24 hours. In recent years this unexplained event has occurred in other parts of the world.

Crop circles of extraordinary variety and complexity have been appearing in agricultural fields every year for decades, particularly in southern England. This one was discovered in Waylands Smithy, Oxfordshire. According to Benjamin Creme, the circles are made in seconds by UFOs through a combination of technology and thought.

In December 2008, Share International announced that a brilliant ‘star’ would appear as a sign that Maitreya’s open mission was about to begin. Since then, thousands of ‘star’ sightings have been reported through media outlets, postings on YouTube, and photos and letters sent to Share International. The ‘star’ refers to one of four gigantic spacecraft positioned so that one can be seen from anywhere in the world.

Brilliant and intriguing patterns of light, varying in shape and size, have been manifesting on houses and buildings around the world since the late 1990s. Persons familiar with sacred geometry have identified the vesica pisces, or Flower of Life, within some of the patterns. No scientific explanation has been found for them.
The Day of Declaration

Maitreya’s first American interview, where he appeared as a seemingly ordinary man, has been followed by others worldwide, which will lead to an open invitation to address all humanity. On his ‘Day of Declaration’, television networks worldwide will be linked together, and Maitreya will be invited to speak to the world. We will see his face on television, but we will hear his appeal telepathically—each person in his or her native language. Even those who are not watching television will hear his words inwardly. This will re-enact the true happenings of Pentecost on a global scale.

On this day, Maitreya will speak heart-to-heart, simply. He will talk about the history of humanity, the high source from which we came, the evolutionary process, the Law of Cause and Effect, the Law of Rebirth, and the need for harmlessness. He will address the needs of the world, outlining our major problems and their solution through sharing—and the creation, therefore, of justice and peace.

At the same time, Maitreya’s energy of Love will enter the hearts of all, galvanizing us to make the choice to save the world. And hundreds of thousands of spontaneous healings will occur. In these ways we will know that this man is the World Teacher for all humanity.

“For these precious minutes, men will know afresh the joy of full participation in the realities of Life, will feel connected one to another, like the memory of a distant past.”
– “To serve anew”, Share International magazine (August/September 1994)
This handprint of Maitreya, manifested on a bathroom mirror in Barcelona, Spain is similar to the print on the Turin Shroud and three-dimensional in appearance. When you place your hand over it, or simply look at it (or a photocopy of it), you are in effect calling forth Maitreya’s healing, blessing or help—whatever is possible within karmic law. Until he emerges fully and we see his face, this is the closest that Maitreya can come to us.

The Ageless Wisdom teachings in brief

From ancient times, a body of spiritual teaching known as the Ageless Wisdom has been handed down from generation to generation. A systematic and comprehensive account of the evolution of consciousness in man and nature, it describes how the universe came to exist, how it operates, and humanity’s place within it...

Esotericism, as the Ageless Wisdom is sometimes called, is also the art of working with those energies which emanate from the highest spiritual sources. It has been the wellspring for the arts and sciences throughout the ages and is also the common foundation of all the world’s religions.

Esotericism defines God as the sum total of all the Laws, and all the energies governed by these Laws, which make up everything in the manifest and unmanifest universe—all that we see and cannot see. God is also the great Cosmic Being who ensouls this planet.

Man and woman, in turn, are ‘Sparks of God’, spiritual beings expressing themselves through physical bodies. Each one of us is essentially divine, but compared to the saints and sages of all religions, most individuals recognize and demonstrate this divinity only to a limited degree.

The process by which we gradually manifest more of this divinity is rebirth (reincarnation). Like children entering the school system at kindergarten, we begin at a very basic level of human expression, not realizing our true spiritual heritage.

Through the experiences of countless lifetimes lived in many countries, with different cultural and religious upbringings, in both male and female bodies, we learn many lessons through successes and failures, and proceed on our evolutionary journey back to our Source. The gains in each lifetime are carried over to the next.

The ‘method’ used in this educational system is the Law of Cause and Effect (or, in Eastern terms, karma) which the Bible would describe: “As you sow, so shall you reap”. In terms of modern physics, the Law of Cause and Effect could be summarized as: “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. Every thought and deed sets up a cause that inevitably leads to certain effects for better or worse. By understanding and working within this impersonal Law, we learn to make better choices and gradually take control of our own destiny. Through experiencing all that life in this world has to offer, we ultimately acquire total mastery over ourselves and become perfected beings—Masters of Wisdom—fully manifesting the divinity that dwells in each of us.

Transmission Meditation – a service to humanity

For those who want to help the world and build a stronger connection with their own soul, Transmission Meditation is the simplest way to do both—at the same time...

The Masters of Wisdom have been engaged for millions of years in transmitting energies through groups in the world. By ‘group’ is meant humanity itself and/or smaller groups—Jews, Hindus, Christians, etc. All acts of worship, in temple, church, or wherever, have always been, at the same time, transmissions of energy from Hierarchy at some level of potency, whether the celebrants were aware of this or not.

However, in 1974, the Master with whom Benjamin Creme had been associated for more than 40 years asked him (Creme) to form the first group knowingly dedicated to providing a conduit for these energies and, further, to encourage this activity and give instruction wherever he went.

The Great Invocation
From the point of light within the Mind of God
Let Light stream forth into the minds of men
Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of love within the Heart of God
Let Love stream forth into the hearts of men
May Christ return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men —
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

The Great Invocation, used by the Christ for the first time in June 1945, was released by him to humanity to enable man himself to invoke the energies which would change our world and make possible the return of the Christ and Hierarchy. It has been translated into many languages and is used today in every country in the world.

The Great Invocation is used at the beginning of every Transmission Meditation to call forth the energies from our Spiritual Hierarchy.

Transmission Meditation is a group service activity which ‘steps down’ the great spiritual energies that continually stream into our planet. This transmission process, which makes the energies more useful to humanity, is similar to that of electrical transformers, which step down the power between generators and household outlets. These transformed spiritual energies are gradually uplifting all life forms, changing our world for the better.

During transmission, the Masters of Wisdom direct energies from the spiritual planes through the energy centers (chakras) of the group members in a scientific manner. The group literally serves as a ‘point of entry’ for these energies to reach humanity and stimulate human progress. With an increase in the energy of equilibrium, for example, nations that have been enemies for centuries may now find they can talk together around a table and peacefully work out a solution.

Transmission Meditation is simple, safe, scientific, non-denominational, and extremely potent. It will not interfere with any other religious or spiritual practice. In fact it is a powerful means of personal growth and will enhance personal meditations and any other service activities in which a person may be engaged. Many people find they can experience and demonstrate love more easily. Others report that their minds are more stimulated and creative. Some people receive spontaneous healings during the transmissions.

Hundreds of transmission groups around the world meet on a regular basis. There is never any fee to participate, and anyone may start a group with as few as three people. Once a routine is established, it becomes a special and important point of focus in each individual’s life.

The promise of the future

The following is a sample of forecasts for the coming times compiled from the writings of Benjamin Creme, including information from his Master...

We will enter an era of tranquility and peace—in exact proportion to the present discord. The violence and hatred of today will be transmuted into goodwill.
Gradually, the worst areas of slums and decayed buildings in the major cities will go. They will be replaced by recreational parkland and by ordinary housing, on a human scale, interspersed with parks and shopping areas.
Transportation systems will be devised which will be so silent, so apparently motionless, that travel fatigue will completely disappear.
The growing concern for nature and environment will be embodied in legislation, universally accepted, and will lead to a wise husbandry of nature’s gifts.
Increased leisure will evoke undreamed-of skills and talents, allow men and women to reach their full potential, and permit close involvement with community and national life.
As a result of the changed conditions on earth—the reduction of tension and fear, greater leisure, the eradication of disease, new meaning and impetus to life—the health of mankind will improve enormously and the physical body will take longer to ‘wear out.’
As part of a new Technology of Light, the fusion process of nuclear power—a cold, safe, wasteless process using a simple isotope of water, universally available—will solve all humanity’s future power needs.
We will understand that there is no such thing as death, but simply a shift of consciousness from this to another plane.

A messenger of hope

Benjamin Creme, a British artist and long-time student of the Ageless Wisdom, was the principal source of contemporary information about the emergence of Maitreya. In 1959 Creme received his first telepathic message from a Master of Wisdom... Not long after, he was informed that Maitreya would return within 20 years, and that he (Creme) would be given the opportunity to play an active role in this event if he chose to do so.

In 1972, under this Master’s direction, Creme began a period of intensive training, as a result of which their telepathic contact became continuous and immediate. This relationship gave him access to constant up-to-date information on the progress of Maitreya’s emergence and the total conviction necessary to present that information to a skeptical world.

Until his 90s, Creme lectured by invitation throughout Europe, North America and the Pacific Rim, and was regularly interviewed on radio and television. He received no fees for this work and made no claims about his own spiritual status. Creme was the editor of Share International, a monthly magazine which is read in over 70 countries. “My task,” Creme said, “has been to make the initial approach to the public, to help create a climate of hope and expectancy into which Maitreya can emerge without infringing our freewill.”

As a result of Creme’s lectures, books and Share International magazine, groups of volunteers in countries worldwide have come together for the purpose of helping to disseminate information about Maitreya and the global transformations that are taking place. Through their efforts, Creme’s books have been translated and published in more than a dozen languages. An extensive web site is also maintained by a group of dedicated volunteers. Benjamin Creme made his transition on October 24, 2016, but his work continues through these groups.

Books by Benjamin Creme
Benjamin Creme has written over a dozen books on the emergence of Maitreya and the Masters of Wisdom into the everyday world. These two short companion books provide an overview of this momentous event and how it is expected to affect our lives.
The World Teacher for All Humanity summarizes the process of the emergence and discusses Maitreya’s nature and spiritual qualities as well as his plans, priorities and recommendations for the immediate future.

The Awakening of Humanity describes the steps leading to the Day of Declaration, when Maitreya will declare himself openly as World Teacher for the age of Aquarius, and humanity’s anticipated response to this revelation.

How you can help

Many who hear about Maitreya’s presence in the world ask, “How can I help him?” The most important thing you can do is to share this information widely, for instance by sending a link to this brochure to as many people as possible. Joining or starting a transmission group is another way to help.
