    A first glimpse of Maitreya's teachings. This book reveals fragments of the teachings of Maitreya. The source of the information is special. In the period 1988 - 1993 a member of the Asian community in London, England, called Maitreya's associate, attended meetings where Maitreya was present teaching a group of swamis. The associate passed his information on to two independent journalists, who presented it to the editor of Share International Magazine for publication. In this book these teachings are brought together edited by Benjamin Creme. It is simple and deep at the same time. Central is the art of Self-realisation that can be practiced by the three practices honesty of mind, sincerity of spirit and detachment. Furthermore, through comments on the political, economic en social happenings of that time, Maitreya shows the working of the great Law of Cause and Effect. Reading this book gives you a first glimpse of Maitreya's teachings for humanity for the coming centuries.

    A spiritual gift

    I thought that I was well-read on the subject of spirituality. Certainly, knowledge and awareness is ever-expanding and for anyone who is open to spiritual growth this book provides a wealth of thought-provoking information. It is a gift for anyone who is willing to receive it.

    Creme's books quench my thirst

    Creme's titles quench my thirst for truer understanding of spiritual texts. Absent from his writings are the emotional overtones or any inclination to sell you on any idea. He leaves the reader free to decide what makes sense for themselves. For so many it is not possible that their very own thinking process are worth consideration as sources of inspiration, but Creme rarely advises the reader to come to any conclusion. From reading his books, I have come to value my own being so much more through reading Creme's points about the nature of the soul and the teamwork that is possible between the Masters and ourselves, evolution and answering my soul's call in my own way, I am inpsired, yet free all the time. Once you meditate, belief systems shatter and you are free to live.

    Highly thought provoking.

    I experienced one of those incredible moments where something I'd read many times and thought I fully understood, suddenly took on a new and higher meaning. Those age old questions of 'where we come from' and 'where we're going' are answered in this revealing book.This is a MUST READ for those spiritually searching people. It explains how today's corrupt Political and Economical focus, through simple and spiritual means, can be changed to benefit all Humanity.

    Spiritual politics

    This is a book of liberation, verily. It calls upon its readers to see themselves as divine beings wrapped in habits, ideologies and various '¿isms.' The way out, it proposes, is through practicing honesty, sincerity, and detachment. These three qualities will lead one to a state of objectivity, which is necessary to effect positive change in the world. / Far from preaching its ideas, the book explains how they apply to contemporary political discourse. Its two central chapters demonstrate the workings of the law of cause and effect in world events during the period of 1988-1993: the poll tax revolt and the subsequent fall of Margaret Thatcher in the UK Gorbachev¿s hasty reforms and the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Middle East crisis. Particularly incisive is its commentary on the Gulf War, while its description of hitherto unknown incidents regarding President G. H. Bush, Saddam Hussein, the Sheikh of Kuwait, and General Colin Powell, throw additional light on these tragic events. / I would readily title the book ¿spiritual politics.¿ Establishing a correct relation with one¿s own self and committing one¿s talents and resources to the betterment of the world are the instruments of personal development and social transformation. Its author has emphasized, for many years now, the need for spiritualizing politics. The network of correspondences between universal laws and political action offered in the book will hopefully inspire readers to seek spiritual advancement in active citizenship.
