Maitreya, the World Teacher is here

It is with great pleasure that we share with you information about the Emergence of Maitreya—the World Teacher for all humanity. We believe that, in time, Maitreya will be seen as fulfilling the expectations of the world’s traditions, religious or non-religious, for a “Coming One”—whether as Christ, Messiah, the fifth Buddha, Krishna, or the Imam Mahdi. At this time of great political, economic, and social crisis, Maitreya will inspire humanity to see itself as one family, and create a civilization based on sharing, economic and social justice, peace and global co-operation.

“When men see Me for the first time and know Me for what I am, they will find themselves changing inwardly. Many will for a time return to the joy of childhood and find the world a better home thereby. Many will feel strengthened in their desire to serve and to place themselves in the forefront of change. These are the ones on whom I shall call for the task of replenishment of man’s spirit and joy”

Latest developments

Share International Foundation issued a news release on March 27, 2013 which featured extraordinary images of an angel flying towards the sun. The release was mailed to Canadian media on April 5th. Below is the main message of the release.

In recent months two extraordinary photographs were recorded by NASA cameras of a gigantic angel-like figure hovering near the sun. The photographs have been widely seen on YouTube and UFO websites but NASA scientists have given no explanation for the mysterious phenomenon.

Share International magazine has been reporting on miracles for over 30 years and offers the following explanation. Editor Benjamin Creme says that while many people thought the images were UFOs, “our information is that it is an ‘angel’, or ‘deva’ as they are known in the East. The angelic or deva evolution runs parallel to that of the human and they can vary in size from tiny to colossal. This ‘angel’ was filmed moving near the sun and both photographs are of the same ‘angel’. Our information is that it is gigantic: about half the size of the Earth.”

Miracles have been occurring in increasing numbers in the last three decades. Share International connects these miracles to a bigger story: the emergence of a group of spiritual teachers at this critical time. At their head is Maitreya, the World Teacher. Expected by all religious groups under different names, he comes not as a religious leader, but as an educator in the broadest sense, for people of all faiths and those of none. Maitreya’s emergence is imminent. (Source:

Maitreya the World Teacher steps forward

Maitreya, the World Teacher, has been based in the Asian community of London since July 1977, gradually emerging into full public view.

Artist, author and lecturer Benjamin Creme has for over 35 years been preparing the way for this extraordinary event.

In December 2008 Benjamin Creme announced that in the very near future a large, bright star would appear in the sky visible throughout the world, night and day, heralding the imminent appearance of Maitreya in His first interview on a major US television programme.

Within weeks reports from all over the world of an unusually bright star, often moving and changing colour, began to appear in the media and on YouTube

On 14 January 2010 Benjamin Creme announced that Maitreya had given His first interview, on American television, and that millions had heard Him speak both on television and the internet.

Benjamin Creme explained: “He was introduced not as Maitreya, the World Teacher and Head of our Spiritual Hierarchy, but simply as a man, one of us. In this way He ‘ensures that men follow and support Him for the truth and sanity of His ideas rather than for His status’. He spoke earnestly of the need for peace, achievable only through the creation of justice and the sharing of the world’s resources.”

Spiral Light in Australia
The spiral light seen across eastern Australia in the early morning of 5 June 2010 (over Queensland, Brisbane, Sydney and Canberra) has been confirmed by Benjamin Creme’s Master to be the ‘star’ which heralds the emergence of Maitreya, the World Teacher, into full public recognition.

Spiral UFO in Australia is the 'star'Scientists are attempting to explain away this latest spiral phenomenon as the effects of the launch of a private space rocket at Cape Canaveral, USA, just as the Norwegian spiral ‘star’ was explained away as being a failed Russian rocket.

Witnesses and many other commentators have pointed out that this spiral light is reminiscent of the spiral formation which appeared over Norway in December 2009 and which was confirmed by Benjamin Creme’s Master to have been the ‘star’ heralding Maitreya’s emergence. At the time, Benjamin Creme’s Master also noted that many more such spectacular celestial signs could be expected.
