|When, as now, man is at the crossroads, awaiting guidance
on which direction to take, he sets up an invocative cry for help. Inevitably, when the cry
has reached a certain pitch, We, your Elder Brothers, respond and answer. Thus is it today as
men flounder wildly in the chaos of their own making, afraid to take the only steps which will
save them from further chaos.
Into this maelstrom Maitreya is about to enter, fully aware of the task
which lies ahead. Only a Being of His immeasurable wisdom could accept such a burden. Only
someone of His incomparable courage could undertake such a task.
Who is there to help Him in His work of salvage?
Maitreya seeks to lift man into his birthright. He seeks to inspire the creation of a new and happier world. The Great Lord seeks to invest each individual life with sanctity and worth. He seeks to rid the world of violence and war.
Where will He find His helpers? Who are ready to respond? Who have the courage to aid the Lord of Love? He knows already those on whom He can depend. Make ready to see Him. Burnish bright your resolve. Be not dismayed by the immensity of the task. Be simple and heartfelt in all you do. Maitreya approaches, fast, on a shining white steed. His mantram is: fear not!
All, in time, will be renewed.
Into your unhappy world now steps Maitreya. He knows your agony and suffering better even than
you do yourselves, for He knows, too, the joy which is your birthright.
