Benjamin Creme: a messenger of hope

Benjamin Creme, a British artist and long-time student of esoteric philosophy, has become the principal source of information about the emergence of Maitreya, the World Teacher.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1922, Benjamin Creme began studying art at an early age, developing into an accomplished painter in the modernist style.

He befriended and collaborated with many of the leading figures of the time in British art, music and literature. His paintings have been exhibited in a number of prestigious galleries.


Throughout his early years Creme also studied various aspects of esoteric philosophy, in particular the teachings released in the late 1800s through Helena Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society, and more recently through Alice A. Bailey. Although these teachings led him to believe in the existence of the Masters of Wisdom ― a group of perfected individuals who are the custodians of the Divine Plan for this planet ― it nevertheless came as a complete surprise to him when, in 1959, he was contacted by one of the Masters. He was told, among other things, that Maitreya, the World Teacher ― the Master of all the Masters ― would return in about 20 years and that he (Creme) would have a role to play in the event if he chose to accept it.

More than a decade later, in 1972, Creme began a period of arduous training under his Master's direction to prepare him for his coming task: announcing to a skeptical world the emergence of the World Teacher, awaited by people of every religion under his various names ― the Christ, Messiah, Imam Mahdi, Krishna, Maitreya Buddha. Creme's constant contact with a Master of Wisdom gives him access to up-to-date information on Maitreya's emergence, plus the total conviction needed to present this story.


From 1975 to 1979, Creme lectured, by invitation, throughout Europe. During his first US tour in 1980, he spoke to large audiences in many major cities. Since the early 1980s, his tours have included Western and Eastern Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico and two trips a year through the US. He has been interviewed on more than 300 radio and television programs in the US alone.

Creme's books on the reappearance of the Christ have been translated into seven languages and are published throughout the world by groups responding to his message. He is also co-editor of Share International, a monthly magazine that focuses on the political, economic, social and spiritual changes now occurring globally. The magazine is read in more than 70 countries.

Benjamin Creme receives no payment for this work and makes no claims about his own spiritual status. These facts, along with his authenticity, intelligence and humor, lend credibility to an otherwise incredible story, and prompt dozens of well-known broadcast personalities to agree with Canadian Broadcasting host/producer, Max Allen, who said: "The Maitreya story is important and Creme is an admirable spokesman."

Since his first public talk in 1974, millions of people have heard Creme's message of hope, and many have been inspired to help make it known on a worldwide scale. "My job," Creme says, "has been to make the initial approach to the public, to help create a climate of hope and expectancy. If I can do that, I'll be well pleased."

    The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom I first

    The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom
    I first read this book over 25 years ago. What struck me about the book is how Benjamin Crème was able to portrait The Christ and The Masters of Wisdom in a completely new light for me. Having been brought up as a Christian and being taught about the story as Jesus Christ as one and that he would come at the end of the world, it was very refreshing to read that Maitreya, The Christ – and the World Teacher – and The Masters of Wisdom would come to bring in a new age. I have found through reading the book and having some understanding of Theosophy that Benjamin Crème’s story has many different layers with a wealth of positive, exciting information to share. The book is written in a way that is easy to follow – and I think will therefore reach many people – with a lot of depth and much food for thought. What also comes across is the author’s sincerity to the message that he is trying to put across.

    Thank goodness, someone who finally talks about the Christ as the being he really is...not in the usual simple interpretation. energy....not a energy of supreme love......the process of evolution and how others have gone before us to evolve into amazing beings we call masters, they have mastered energy and have learnt to use their understanding for the betterment of the planet and to help us all achieve the same. If you want to know the truth about the Christ read this.....
