LOS ANGELES, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was
released today by Share International:
For over 30 years author, lecturer and artist Benjamin Creme has been
preparing the way for the emergence of Maitreya, the World Teacher.
On December 12, 2008, Share International distributed a news release
announcing that in the very near future a large, bright star will appear in
the sky visible throughout the world, night and day. Around a week later,
Maitreya will give his first interview on a major U.S. television program.
Since early January 2009, sightings of the star have been reported from
Norway, South Africa, the United States, Dubai and Qatar. More and more
sightings are now expected. Reports have already appeared in Norwegian
A new article by Benjamin Creme's Master, who is based in the Himalayas,
reveals how close we are to witnessing this sign and the historic events which
will follow. Maitreya's first interview will lead to further and more frequent
interviews in the USA, Japan and other countries.
Maitreya's first interview
In the very near future, people everywhere will have the opportunity to
witness an extraordinary and significant sign, the like of which has been
manifested only once before, at the birth of Jesus. Then, according to
Christian teaching, a star appeared in the heavens and led three wise men from
the East to the birthplace of Jesus. Soon, once again, a star-like luminary of
brilliant power will be seen around the world. What does this mean? How is it
The answer lies in the fact that this mysterious event is a sign, and
heralds the beginning of Maitreya's open mission. Soon after the sign appears
in our skies, Maitreya will give his first media interview on American
On that open, public occasion, still unannounced as Maitreya, the World
Teacher will present his views on the economic and financial chaos which now
grips the world. He will explain its origins and final outcome, and present,
to some extent, his recipe for amelioration of the present heavy burden on the
poor of the world. Thus he will prepare the way for a more detailed and
specific announcement of his ideas.
How will viewers respond? They will not know his background or status.
Will they listen to and consider his words? It is too soon to know exactly,
but the following may be said: never before will they have seen or heard
Maitreya speak. Nor, while listening, will they have experienced his unique
energy, heart to heart. Also, this is a unique time in history, with whole
nations stunned and apprehensive for the future. Therefore it can be assumed
that many who hear his words will be open and eager to hear more. It is not
for nothing that Maitreya has waited patiently for this moment to enter the
public world; America, for one, would not have responded sooner. Now, for the
first time in many years, a new Administration has to cope with financial
chaos, unemployment and social unrest on a massive scale. The moment of truth
for America and the world has arrived.
Not alone in America but worldwide, people are awakening to the need for
and the possibility of change. The politicians and economists call the present
situation a "downturn" and a "recession." In truth, we are witnessing the last
stumbling steps of the old order. Millions are becoming aware that unbridled
competition and greed are not the safest path for men, that such materialistic
doctrines create a "slippery slope" for the unwary, and, eventually, the
international crisis we have today.
Of course, many people of burgeoning wealth stand clear of the present
loss of confidence in the ways which have made them rich, and think it only "a
matter of time" until we are back on course and thriving again.
Will they heed Maitreya and recognize the sense of his argument? Lost in
their arrogance and self-esteem, possibly not. However, many are less sanguine
about a return to the status quo. Many have suffered painful losses and have
lost faith in the old methods. The peoples of the nations are ripe and ready
for change. They call out for change and a more meaningful life. Maitreya will
remind men of the essentials without which there is no future for man: Justice
and Peace. And the only way to both is through sharing.
