When all is said and done, there is but one way to describe the present
international situation: chaotic. Power-hungry warmongers, reluctant ‘agnostics’ and
self-appointed heroes, eager to save the world, struggle to win the support of the people for
their various points of view. The voice of the people struggles to be heard amid the tumult
but, more and more, is a factor to be reckoned with.
In many countries, vast throngs demonstrate their opposition to a forced
and unfair confrontation, and express their fears of a terrible aftermath.
Throughout history, similar situations have arisen again and again, but only very seldom has
the will of the people, even when directly involved, been an important factor in the
deliberations and decisions made. In recent centuries, only in the great transforming actions
of revolution has the people’s voice been central to the action, and made its mark on the

thoughts and needs are being heard and given voice by a mind more thoughtful and persuasive
than their own. In this way they will feel emboldened and join together the better to be
Maitreya will address their most urgent needs, their deepest hopes and fears. He will speak
for all men, for people everywhere, and will thus make known the quality of the new society
which inwardly satisfies the dreams and expectations of all.
Soon, indeed, will Maitreya enter, openly, the lives of men. He is well
prepared and eager for the challenge which lies before Him, and His courage will strengthen
those who can respond. From His great heart will flow the love which it is His nature to
bestow, and when men are ready He will declare His name and office. Thus will the Great Lord
manifest His close relation to men and women everywhere, and thus, too, will He fulfil the
trust which men, for ever, have placed in Him.
