In late 2003 I joined a friend at a packed hall in Amsterdam to see a tiny man with white hair in his 80s speak about world affairs and the coming of a new world teacher, Maitreya.


Benjamin Crème, a British artist, has been travelling the world since 1974, spreading this message. He has been interviewed hundreds of times and authored many books. He is a successor to Alice Bailey who collaborated with Master of Wisdom Djwhal Khul in creating a vast amount of information for the world between 1919 and 1949. This Ageless Wisdom Teaching was first made public around 1875 by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky in her visionary books: The Secret Doctrine and Isis Unveiled. Madame Blavatsky was the founder of the Theosophical Society.


The following Invocation is one I use almost daily, often when walking before dawn. I then sing a tune similar to the one written by that same friend whom I accompanied to the packed hall in Amsterdam in 2003. I also use it in a triangle with two distant friends, one in Qatar and the other in Michigan. These triangles, participated in by compassionate people all over the world, increase the ability of we humans to act as suitable conductors of healing energy for this planet.


For what it’s worth, here’s my slant on the coming of Maitreya:

 I believe the Christ energy that every Manifestation, every Prophet, has embodied is available to each and every one of us. The only thing keeping it away is a feeling of unworthiness, of inferiority. We’ve created separation between teachers and students for too long. We’re all masters and weavers of this world. Accept that and we’re free.









From the point of Light within the Mind of God


Let light stream forth into the minds of men.


Let Light descend on Earth.



From the point of Love within the Heart of God


Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.


May Christ return to Earth.



From the center where the Will of God is known


Let purpose guide the little wills of men –


The purpose which the Masters know and serve.



From the center which we call the race of men


Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.


And may it seal the door where evil dwells.



Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.



The Christ himself used this great mantram for the first time in June 1945, when he announced to his Brothers, the Masters of Wisdom, that he was ready to return to the world at the earliest possible moment, as soon as humanity took the first steps towards sharing and cooperation for the general good.


If the Purpose of God, invoked through this universal prayer, guides “the little wills of men,” then the little separate wills of men and women will come at last into correct alignment with the Divine Will, and the Plan of Love and Light will work out. All that we do as a race is in response (adequate or inadequate) to the Divine energies of Will (or Purpose), Love and Light released into the world by the Spiritual Hierarchy of Masters. 


The Great Invocation was given to humanity by Maitreya the Christ as a potent technique of invoking the energies which would transform the world and prepare for his coming. We urge you to use it daily and encourage others to do so on behalf of humanity.
