Know Me by the simplicity of My utterance.
Know Me by the Love of My heart,
by My deeds of succour,
by My Call to all men to share and live in peace....

My Coming brings peace.
Likewise, My presence brings cleavage.
My Sword, that Love which I am,
will separate all men,
will show the true from false,
will clear the way for the New Light
which I bring.

Who is Maitreya?

The Masters of Wisdom

U nknown to most of us, above the human kingdom there exists, and always existed, another kingdom - the Spiritual Kingdom or the Kingdom of Souls, also known as the Spiritual Hierarchy of our planet.  It is made up of the Masters and Initiates of Wisdom, of that group of men and women who have gone ahead of us, evolved before us, and, in the case of the Masters, have come to the end of the evolutionary experience on this planet.  Through the demonstration of the Love of God the Masters have reached the relative perfection, a perfection that one day will be our own destiny to manifest.

The Masters serve the Plan of Evolution of the human and subhuman kingdoms. They are the custodians of all the energies entering the planet.  Powerful cosmic energies impinge upon this planet from everywhere in space. The Masters work with these energies, scientifically balancing them and sending them into the world to help humanity and the lower kingdoms - animal, vegetable and mineral - evolve.

From behind the scenes the Masters have guided and protected humanity, for countless millennia. Working through their disciples in all fields of human endeavour They have inspired great human achievements throughout our history. 

Our Zodiac - The Cosmic Clock of Evolution

The thin white line on 
this diagram shows
the precession of the 
equinoxes or, in layman's
terms, the path on which 
our solar system travels
 around the heavens in
relation to the 12 
constellations of our zodiac.


Concurrently to the better known twelve month zodiac cycle, there exits another - greater - cycle.  This greater cycle which takes almost 26,000 years to complete. During this greater cycle our sun makes a journey in relation to the twelve constellations of the zodiac and, approximately every 2,150 years, comes into an alignment, a particular energetic relationship, with each of the constellations in turn.  When we are in that alignment, we say we are in the age of that particular constellation, and are the recipient of powerful cosmic energies streaming from it. 

For approximately 2,000 years, our sun has stood in that relationship to the constellations Pisces.  We have been in the age of Pieces.  The age of Pisces has ended and we are now entering the age of Aquarius. 

At the beginning or the end of every age, the Hierarchy of Masters send one of Their Great Ones into the world to act as a Teacher for the coming time.  We know some of these great teachers historically as Hercules, Hermes, Rama, Mithra, Confucius, Zoroaster, Vyasa, Krishna, Buddha, the Christ, and Mohammed.  They are all members of the same group, the Spiritual Hierarchy of our planet. 

The Lord Maitreya - the World Teacher

Maitreya holds the office of the World Teacher - the Head of the Spiritual Hierarchy of Masters of Wisdom. He has held this office since 600 BC and will remain in this role for the next 2600 years. At that time Maitreya will move on to higher work and the apostle John, who is now known as the Master Koot Hoomi, will take up this office. 

The Lord Maitreya is the embodiment of the energy of Love, or the Christ Principle. He receives this energy directly from our sun and anchors it on the planet. Through Him this Energy flows through the hearts of all humanity. He is the great Lord of Love and of Compassion (just as His predecessor, the Buddha, was the Lord of Wisdom). He is the Master of the Masters, and the Instructor of the Angels.  To Him is committed the guidance of the spiritual destinies of men, and the development of the realisation within each human being that he is a child of God and a son of the Most High. Maitreya works by means of a meditation centred within the heart.

Maitreya returns to the world at this time in history, the dawn of the new age of Aquarius, to show us the way forward and to help us transform this world.


In His Messages Maitreya outlines the purpose of His Mission and 
the extent of the capacity in which He comes.

Following are a few excerpts from these Messages.


There is much to do, much that needs changing in the world. Many hunger and die, many suffer needlessly. I come to change all that; to show you the way forward - into a simpler, saner, happier life - together. No longer man against man, Nation against nation, but together...
[From Message No.1]

You have only to take the first steps and I may lead.

Allow Me to help you.
Allow Me to show you the way - forward, into a simpler life where no man lacks; where no two days are alike; where the joy of Brotherhood manifests through all men.

Mine is the task to lead and guide, but you, willingly, must follow.
Otherwise, I can do nothing. My hands are tied by Law.

The decision rests with mankind.
[From Message No.3]

I am a simple Man, and simply I make My Appeal to you:
Trust Me, follow Me, let Me take you into the future time,
on the basis of Love,
on the basis of Sharing,
on the basis of Brotherhood.
[From Message No.4]

I am with you in many ways:
I am with you as Maitreya, the Leader of My group of Masters.
I am with you as the Embodiment of that Divine Force which you call the Christ Principle.
I am with you as your Brother of Old, as the Eldest of our family.
I am with you as God's Representative, as the Spokesman for that Divine Being Whose dreams we are....

My friends, I am with you and in you and around you.
I am the Lord of Love.
I am the Hope of Mankind.
I am the Well.
I am your Bliss.
I am returned to you by the One we call God....
[From Message No.20]

I am the Answer to the past.
I am the Hope for the future.
[From Message No.30]

I am the Light.
I am the Law.
I am the Ascended One.
I am the Knower of God's Will.
I am the Beacon.
I am the Support of all men....

I am your loving heart.
I am your highest thought.
I am your pity....
[From Message No.40]

- Maitreya, the World Teacher -

The Laws and Rules of Life

by the Master –, through Benjamin Creme

Since time immemorial, men have known of, and expected the coming of, a great teacher, an outstanding man of wisdom and revealed truth. Cyclically, age after age, have these Great Ones come forth. Today is no exception to this cosmic law. As the new era dawns, men stand expectant as never before for a sight of the Great Teacher Who, though they know it not, is already in men's midst.

Throughout the planet, old and young, poor and rich, make ready for His Announcement, His Declaration of Mission and Purpose, His tryst with mankind. As the old century and era wind to their close, men's minds are quickening to the new energies which will fashion the forms of the new civilization and impose their qualities on the consciousness of men. These qualities - of synthesis and fusion, tolerance and goodwill, harmlessness and brotherly love - will, in time, bring the race of men to the manifestation of its destined glory. Thus shall it be, and thus shall men enter again into their age-old Covenant with the Divine.

Little though they may know it, men are on the threshold of a re-awakening to the very meaning and purpose of their existence.

Trial and test

It is, in part, to see men safely through this period of trial and test that their Elder Brothers, the Masters of Wisdom, are returning openly to the world. With Their great leader - Maitreya, the World Teacher - at Their head, They will inspire the creation of the new, more appropriate structures which will allow men to live and work together in peace. From that peace will manifest a creativity and resource unlike aught seen before.

Men will learn and understand the subtle laws which govern their lives: the basic law of life, the Law of Karma, of Cause and Effect, which controls the destiny of all; the related Law of Rebirth, which makes possible the journey of the Soul in matter; the Law of Harmlessness, which governs right relationship, and the great Law of Sacrifice by which all evolution proceeds.

Through an understanding of these laws, men will come to resemble their Mentors, their Elder Brothers, and to demonstrate the Divinity shared by all. They will hearken to the teaching of the Wise Ones and, step by step, inherit their Birthright. Men are born to become Gods and nought can change that destiny; the timing, only, lies in men's hands.

Soon the world will know that the One for Whom men wait is now among us. Soon, indeed, will He show His face and beckon men to His side. Calling for justice for all will the Great Lord stake His claim to the right to teach the Laws and Rules of Life, the Sacred Path by which men become Gods.

[This article from Share International magazine, November 1999, is by a senior member of the Hierarchy of Masters of Wisdom. His name, well-known in esoteric circles, is not yet being revealed. Benjamin Creme, a principal spokesman about the emergence of Maitreya, is in constant telepathic contact with this Master Who dictated His article to him.]

Miracles - the signs of His Presence

"The signs of Maitreya's presence in the world will continue to increase... 
He is going to flood the world with such happenings that the mind
can never comprehend it."

This prediction was made on June 1, 1988 by one of Maitreya's close associates. Since then, millions of people, from every religious and cultural background, have now experienced some 'miraculous' phenomenon: from visions of the Virgin Mary to apparitions of Christ or the Buddha; from healing waters to crop circles and 'crosses of light'; from
angels to vanishing hitchhikers.


Maitreya's public appearances

Maitreya's appearance in Nairobi, Kenya

Nairobi, Kenya - "About 6,000 worshippers in Nairobi, Kenya, believe they saw Christ on 11 June 1988. The tall figure of a bare-footed, white-robed and bearded man appeared from nowhere and stood in the middle of the crowd, whom he addressed in clear unaccented Swahili.  Many healings took place - twenty cripples walked again. He departed in as mysterious a manner as he appeared."

(KENYA TIMES, Kenya, 22 June 1988)


Since 1988, Maitreya has appeared miraculously throughout the world, mainly to orthodox religious groups, presenting in the simplest terms the great spiritual laws governing our lives.

He appears in different forms to different groups and individuals - but always in a form that inspires recognition.

According to Benjamin Creme the purpose of such appearances and other miracles is to uphold the faith of the faithful, to renew their belief in God's love and blessing, and to prepare their hearts and minds for the imminent appearance of their awaited Teacher.


Knowingly or not, the world stands ready to recognise the Christ.  His long-awaited and hoped-for reappearance is now an accomplished fact.

Benjamin Creme

Benjamin Creme, the principle source of information about the reappearance of Maitreya, the Christ, was born in Scotland in 1922. An artist by profession, he lives with his wife and family in London, England. Since his early youth, he has been interested in esoteric philosophy. In 1959, he received his first telepathic message from his Master, a member of the Spiritual Hierarchy, an event which came as a complete surprise to him. Not long after, he was informed that Maitreya would return within twenty years and that he would be given the opportunity to play an active role in this event if he chose to do so. 

In 1972, under his Master's direction, he began a period of arduous and intensive training as a result of which Mr Creme's telepathic contact with his Master became, and remains, continuous and immediate. This relationship has given 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 sceptical world.

Beginning in 1974 Mr Creme lectured by invitation throughout Europe. His first US tour took place in 1980. His tours now include Western and Eastern Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico and the US. He has been interviewed on more than 300 radio and television programs in the US alone.

Mr Creme receives no remuneration for this work and makes no claims about his own spiritual status.

Benjamin Creme's books have been translated and published in numerous languages - including French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Japanese, Swedish, Greek, Romanian and Russian - by groups worldwide who have responded to his message. He is also co-editor of Share International, a monthly magazine read in 70 countries.

"My task," Mr Creme says, "has been to make the initial approach to the public, to help create a climate of hope and expectancy into which the Christ, Maitreya, can emerge without infringing our freewill."
