The Reappearance of The Christ
and the Masters of Wisdom


The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of WisdomIn this, his first, book Benjamin Creme made the startling announcement that the Christ, as World Teacher for the coming age, is already among us ― gradually emerging into full public recognition. And, further, that this great Spiritual Presence, known as Maitreya, is the same One expected by many religions, albeit under different names. Along with a group of highly-evolved spiritual men - known as the Masters of Wisdom - who have long inspired humanity from behind the scenes, Maitreya is here to promote cooperation among the many ideological factions, galvanize world goodwill and sharing, and inspire sweeping political, social, economic and environmental reforms. They are among us now as universal Teachers and guides for people of all spiritual traditions and those of none.

Creme puts the most profound event of the last 2,000 years into its correct historical and esoteric context and describes what effect the World Teacher's presence will have on both the world's institutions and the average person. Through his telepathic contact with a Master of Wisdom, Creme answers a myriad of questions well beyond the scope of his personal knowledge. New insights are offered on such subjects as the soul and reincarnation, telepathy, nuclear energy, ancient civilizations, problems of the developing world and a new economic order. And he clarifies misunderstandings about the anti-christ and the 'last judgement'.

Colin Wilson, Books and Bookmen ...Creme seems to belong to the same group as Blake, Russell, Madame Blavatsky and Alice Bailey: a man who sees things that other people do not see, and who tells us about it all with sincerity and even a certain amount of humour, while people like Creme exist I feel there is a great deal of hope for us all.

The Book Reader A thoroughly remarkable book that crafts a penetrating chronicle of the universe and its mind-blowing powers.

Bette Stockbauer The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom offers a rare glimpse of the underlying preparation for an experience that has long been anticipated by people in all walks of life. The author, Benjamin Creme, tells of his own preparation since the 1950s to act as a bridge between humanity and the 'Spiritual Hierarchy' which guides our evolution. His constant contact with a Master of Wisdom has kept him informed of the unfolding of this great spiritual event, from the Christ's decision to return in 1945 until his actual re-entry into our lives in 1977. This is the first phase of a great planetary transition which will see many such great souls working among us and leading the way into the coming Aquarian Age.

Here we read Maitreya's first teachings. "Share with Me, My friends, in a great work - nothing less than the transformation of this world....My teaching is simple: Justice, Sharing and Love are Divine Aspects. To manifest his divinity man must embrace these three." He says that, "there is but little need for the...hunger, disease and anguish which beset mankind...through the process of sharing and just redistribution the needs of all can be met."

Through Creme's eyes, we also have a glimpse into the plan of the Hierarchy for our future civilization - the forms of education, religion and government which will emerge, and the powers of healing and telepathy we can hope to develop. We read answers to such basic discussions as the meaning of God, the purpose of our evolutionary journey, and the constitution of the spiritual evolution which underlies our physical world.

The events and discussions in this book offer direction for a world that many think has lost its way. They give a promise and a hope - that we are destined for a future of beauty, sharing, and peace.
