Between September 1977 and June 1982, British author and lecturer Benjamin Creme received a series of 140 Messages from Maitreya, the World Teacher. These Messages were given during Creme’s public lectures in London via a process of mental overshadowing or spiritual telepathy, which is not related to mediumship or channelling.
Through these communications, Maitreya suggests the lines that social change must take, and evokes the desire to share and serve humanity. He also gives hints on how to recognize him and urges people to make known the fact of his presence.
It is almost impossible to read these Messages aloud, with attention, without invoking Maitreya’s energy, his heart response. They are apparently simple, sent from heart to heart, but work on various levels and should be meditated upon for their full meaning to come through.
We present here a selection of these Messages. All 140 are also available in printed form.
