Meet the Author

A lifelong student of the Ageless Wisdom teachings -- first made available to the public in the late 1800s by H.P. Blavatsky and later by Alice A. Bailey -- Benjamin Creme has traveled the world for more than 30 years informing people that the greatest event in history is now unfolding. Humanity's Elder Brothers -- the Masters of Wisdom -- are once again among us. Soon these ancient guardians of the human race will be working openly at our side, showing us how to live together in peace -- with sharing, justice and Earth stewardship as the keynotes of a new civilization.

In the 14 inspiring and provocative books which have emerged from his lectures, Creme paints an ever more detailed picture of humanity's destiny, both worldly and spiritually. "We are talking about nothing less than the total transformation of every aspect of our lives", he says. Creme's message is both profound and immensely practical. Each book covers a vast range of topics: from meditation and the growth of consciousness to political and economic change, from initiation and group work to ecology and world service. Compelling explanations are offered for the ever-increasing 'miraculous' or unexplained phenomena such as weeping Madonnas, crosses of light, healing waters, crop circles and UFOs. Creme also clarifies misunderstandings about the antichrist and the 'last judgment' .

Benjamin Creme is chief editor of Share International, a monthly magazine read in over 70 countries that addresses the changes that are both needed and actually occurring in every field of endeavor to bring about a more just and compassionate global society. He accepts no remuneration or royalties for his work.

Read an Excerpt

Day of Declaration

When the world stock markets collapse - as soon as it is obvious that they are on their final plunge - Maitreya will emerge. He will take up an invitation to appear on a major television network in the United States. The invitation has already been issued, but Maitreya will determine the timing of the interview. After the initial interview, all the networks will want to interview Him. However, He will not be introduced as Maitreya or the Christ, but simply as a man of extraordinary wisdom and love.

Maitreya does not come as a religious teacher, but as a spiritual teacher. We have to broaden our idea of what 'spiritual' is. We have to spiritualize every aspect of our lives.

The problem is the commercialization of all aspects of life. We say it in two words - market forces. Market forces are the excuse for everything that we do. Maitreya says commercialization is more dangerous to the world than an atomic bomb.

When we share the produce of the world more equitably, we at a stroke make war and terrorism a thing of the past. We create the conditions of trust. When we have trust, we can sit down and work out the answer to every problem.

Thus will Maitreya speak. Look for such a man speaking in those terms, much more eloquently and simply than I have done. If you believe that He is speaking truly, make it your work to be the first to change, the first to sacrifice.

When enough people are following, not Maitreya, but the thoughts, the ideas, the advice of Maitreya, He will be invited to speak to the entire world on what we will call the Day of Declaration. On that day Maitreya will appear on the television sets of everyone at the same time throughoutthe world. He will address the world, but will not actually speak.

Maitreya is omniscient and omnipresent, and will create during this time a telepathic rapport with every adult in the world. Everyone will hear Maitreya's thoughts, His ideas, His hopes, His plans for the future, telepathically, inwardly in their own language. The Japanese will hear Him in Japanese, the French in French, the Germans in German, the Chinese in Chinese, and so on. He will tell humanity about itself, about how old we are, how long we have been evolving to this relative point (not so high as we think). He will show what lies ahead, the science of the future.

Maitreya will show the high level from which we have fallen, into the mediocrity of materialism today. And He will show the way forward, through the acceptance of the principle of sharing, declaring our sense of the one brotherhood and sisterhood of humanity, enabling us to set out again on the spiritual path, the path that leads not to competition but to oneness.

That is what the New Age is about, the Age of Synthesis. Synthesis means the drawing together and creation of oneness, a unity out of disparate parts. You will find that is the aim of the evolutionary process: unity in diversity, the greatest diversity in the fullness of unity.

While He is speaking, Maitreya's energy will flow out in tremendous potency through the hearts of all humanity. This will evoke an intuitive, heartfelt response to the message. On the physical plane there will be hundreds of thousands of spontaneous miracle healings throughout the world. In these three ways you will know that that One and, of course, only that One, is Maitreya Buddha, the Christ, the Imam Mahdi, Kalki Avatar, Krishna, Messiah, by whatever name He is looked for and awaited. That day will define the entire future for humanity.
