A time without precedent
Little though it may seem to be the case mankind is moving steadily towards its destiny. Despite the tensions and anxieties of the present situation, We, your Elder Brothers, have full faith that men will awaken to the dangers and take timely action to meet them. That faith stems, in large measure, from knowledge of the fact that men are not alone, but are, indeed, the recipients of care and succour from Us. We see men not as separate but as younger brothers on the path of evolution, facing and resolving, with Our help, the many difficulties and dangers which that path presents to the ignorant and the wise alike.Men should understand that this is no ordinary or usual time; it is, indeed, a time climactic in scope and character, a time without precedent. For this reason alone, the problems and dangers are magnified and entail the most careful handling by men and Us. Our physical presence among men, albeit in relatively limited numbers as yet, ensures that Our help is forthcoming in larger measure than ever before, and will be equal to the task.
Our confidence is bolstered by the fact that Our Great Leader, Maitreya, Himself, is among men. His resources are vast. Behind the scenes as yet, He works ceaselessly to bring peace and progress to the affairs of men, seeking, within the Law, to disentangle the many warring interests, and so create the conditions on which true peace depends. Justice, alone, will bring the peace which men desire, and only when justice reigns will war become a fading memory. In almost every country is Maitreya to be found, creating a network of helpers in every field. Thus does He stitch together the fabric of the new.
These selected workers know well their task. They will soon emerge and bring new thinking to the world, showing how imperative it is to make justice the primary goal for men. They will show that this alone will end for ever the scourge of war, the pestilence of terror; that only a rational reconstruction of our economic structures will make justice possible and bring mankind together on a basis of trust. Thus will it be, and thus will the wisdom and precepts of Maitreya penetrate and influence the thinking of men.
Many now are responding to this teaching. In every country, groups are forming and demonstrating for a better life for men, calling for an end to war; justice and freedom for all; sharing as the natural and only way to guarantee the future of the race. Have no fear, men are awakening to the call, and will assuredly triumph.

    A Master Speaks

    This book is different than any other book I have ever read. It is simple, yet broad in scope. The Master talks about a wide range of issues, from the relevant problems on the world scene such as the war in Iraq to how simple it is for humanity to end hunger. He also talks about things like how everyone without exception can live a joyful and creative life. I like to pick this book up and thumb through it. Everytime I read it I learn something new. It is really a great book for anyone.
