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."

Read an Excerpt

>Maitreya Steps Forward
The emergence of Maitreya is all but accomplished. His open, public work will commence really very soon. From then will begin the process of teaching and becoming known, gradually, to the peoples of the world. The time that this will take remains unclear, but it should proceed relatively quickly. At first, of course, there may be much opposition to His views and the nature of His advice. This is only to be expected, so far from the prevailing thinking is His thought. Gradually, however, Maitreya's incisive mind will cut through and expose the flaws in present beliefs about the environment and on matters social, economic and political. The logic and wise understanding of His words will convince many to listen and contemplate further, while His Ray will penetrate the hearts of millions and turn His simple words into revelations of Truth. No one, as yet, knows the loving power of Maitreya, nor can men fathom His inscrutable wisdom.

As millions rally to His cause, demanding peace and justice through sharing and understanding, men will be swept up and galvanized by new hope and a longing for brotherhood and right relationship. They will demand change on a scale hitherto unknown. The governments and men of power will be forced to respond to the demands, and bit by bit, the edifice against change will crumble before the onslaught of a now empowered voice of public opinion. Thus, by logic, revelation and the trust engendered by His love, will Maitreya harness the goodwill which exists, even if unknown, in every heart.

Maitreya will speak to millions of men and women through television and radio. All will have the opportunity to share in His blessing whichwill accompany every appearance. Thus the people worldwide will become familiar with His message and the uplifting of their hearts. Much speculation will surround His identity and many will be the theories presented, but all in their different ways will see Him as the harbinger of the new, a conveyor of wholesome truths and as a way-shower of a lifestyle close to their hearts.

Of course, there will be those who feel threatened by His ideas, and who will attempt to stop His progress but, more and more, the beauty and good sense of His words will inspire the people of all the nations to see Him as their spokesman and leader. Thus will it be. The people will call for Him to speak on their behalf to the world at large, and the Day of Declaration will be announced.

This day, like none other before or after, will give Maitreya the opportunity to reveal His name, title and purpose, as the World Teacher for the New Age, the leader of the Spiritual Hierarchy and the Expected One of all religious groups. As the friend and teacher of all who need His help will He present Himself; as a simple man Who knows the pain and suffering of men and seeks to ease their lot, Who loves all totally, without condition, and Who has come to show us the steps to joy.

Such a one is about to step before the world and give His advice to all. We may have heard the words before. Now, with His blessing, we shall understand their meaning, and act.

from the Master --, through Benjamin Creme (Share International, January/February, 2007)

    a short introduction to a big solution

    The author, Benjamin Creme, is a British painter who in the mid-1970s embarked on an extraordinary mission, announcing to a cynical world the imminent return of the Christ. His first book earned him worldwide attention and a guest appearance in the Merv Griffin show. Since then, Creme has produced a dozen volumes ranging from philosophical discourses to political and social reform agendas. His main topic in over 4000 pages has never changed, however. A teacher for all humanity is slowly but steadily emerging to help us tackle problems that by now have reached lethal magnitude. Bound by law not to infringe human free will, he may openly present himself only after the general public has been exposed to his ideas. Unlike religious saviors and political demagogues, this teacher has clear proposals for the regeneration of the planet. If we accept that humanity is one species, then its survival depends on safeguarding living conditions for all its members. This can reasonably be achieved through a balanced distribution of world resources. By adopting sharing in vital sectors of world economy (basic food, health care, and educational needs) we establish trust and the resulting goodwill makes all things possible, including the elimination of war. Needless to say, these ideas are anathema to oligarchs and fundamentalists around the globe. In fact, the delayed public appearance of the world teacher has much to do with their efforts to discredit Creme and distort his message. The evidence continues to grow in his favor, however. Photographs, accurate predictions of events, independent testimonies, and a global wave of miracles, all suggest there is a kernel of truth in Creme¿s story. Another source of trust in this material is the author¿s independence from vested interests and ideologies. He is thus free from peer pressure, the imperative of convincing readers, and the anxiety of selling fast. His conversational prose exposes the core of our modern problems with disarming honesty and radiant insight. And his description of the world teacher¿s ideas and transformative presence among us is warm and uplifting, to say the least. I recommend this book as a short discourse on the most urgent problem of our times: our collective survival.

    A Call To Change

    One of the remarkable aspects of this book is the fact that so much is contained in so little. The 132 pages gives the reader much to ponder on relating to the many problems facing humanity. In a very simple, direct and objective way, author Benjamin Creme lays bare the urgent need for human beings to change direction and move from a competitive based society and culture to one of co-operation. Competition and the destructive seeds of seperation permeates every aspect of human relationship - politically, socially, economically, religiously, with the familiar effects of war, poverty, ill-health and environmental destruction. What was particularily uplifting about this book was the steadfast view that humanity can change direction and if the initial steps are taken then - as always - providence will act to support and invigorate this descion. In this case providence isn't some vague notion, Mr.Creme speaks of a group of enlightened teachers who have stood behind humanity since its earliest days and have always sought to inspire, aid and assist. Now this group is emerging from their ancient retreats to walk again among men and to once again assist humanity through the point of crisis and danger we now face. I found this book to be a practical blue print for effective spiritual living in a world that is confused and conflicted.
