Dear Editor,
We live on an island in the Indian Ocean. On 26 December 2015, around 00.42hrs, we thought we saw Maitreya’s star. We wanted to film it but, unfortunately, my husband’s portable phone battery was flat. We were able to observe the star carefully as it was moving slowly. It was quite bright, different from the other stars. Its colour was a brilliant yellow. We made a search on Google in hope to find out what it could be, and found the articles about Maitreya. We immediately understood that this was the star we’d seen. We were surprised. We have a strong belief in Jesus Christ and are wondering why the star appeared to us.

Dear Editor,
On 6 April 2014 at about 22.30, watching from my balcony, I once again saw a star that seemed to be pulsating light in an abnormal way. I had previously tried to film it with my video camera but to no avail. On that night I had the sudden impression that I should give it another try. I made some recordings on 10 and 11 April and also took a few snapshots.

The different colours, shapes and moves that can be seen on the video and the photos seem to indicate that it might be something special. I had the strange impression that there was some kind of intervention between the observer and the observed. Each time the sky was clear, that star was still visible. Could it be a UFO or Maitreya's 'star'?

Maitreya’s ‘star’ letter

Dear Editor,
On 27 November 2013, in the evening, after Transmission Meditation, we opened the window and looked at the sky. It was misty and the stars well hidden. Only planet Jupiter could be seen. All of a sudden another large star appeared next to Jupiter and was moving towards it – as if they intended to blend together. It was very impressive to see these two giants so close together. In Indian astrology, planet Jupiter is called Guru (the Master).

A few weeks later, on 17 December at about 5pm, I was just crossing a bridge when the planet Venus drew my attention. The sky was cloudless and in the twilight only Venus could be seen. I always feel a deep joy when I see Venus. So I decided to rest for a while and watch. After some seconds in the distance another star appeared, moving from east to west in direction of Venus. The nearer it came the more brilliant became its light. For a moment planet Venus and the moving star were close together, so I had the opportunity to compare the two different lights. Then the two energies fused together (in my consciousness) before the star continued its way into the sunset. A truly uplifting experience!

Was it Maitreya’s star on both occasions?

‘Maitreya’s ‘star’

California, USA – A bright light that changed colours was seen in the sky over Bakersfield, California, on the nights of 28 and 29 October 2013. According to a local television news report: “17 News received numerous calls from viewers about a mysterious bright light shining in the sky for the second straight night…. It was too bright to be a star, too still to be an aircraft.” Amateur astronomer Daron Nunn, who looked at the UFO through a telescope, said the object “split” and “changed shapes”.

Florida, USA – A pulsating object that changed colours was seen by Gregg Prescott over Sarasota, Florida, on 16 and 17 October 2013. He also filmed it from Siesta Key, Florida, 3 November 2013, from 7.40 to about 8.40 pm. “It would grow larger when I asked it to,” he writes, adding: “the location of this UFO has moved significantly north, which gives everybody the opportunity to see it for an extended period of time. It’s as if the ET’s want to give everyone an opportunity to see that we are not alone in this universe.” One witness said: “That object is so bright sometimes it can be seen though clouds.” Initially sightings began around 9 October; many reports came from all over the United States as well as Brazil, Japan and New Zealand.

Dear Editor,
On 15 August 2013, near Dieppe, I saw a bright orange star in the sky around 11.15pm. The star seemed very low in altitude. At the beginning, it seemed not to be moving, but after a few minutes it began to move slowly to the left and disappeared behind trees. It was so beautiful and I was very excited. I’m almost sure that it was a UFO. Could you please tell me what this object was? If it was a UFO, where did it come from?

West Harrison, Indiana, USA, 'star'

Dear Editor,
On the night of 6 July 2013, in the city of Camanducaia, Minas Gerais, Brazil, looking to the northwest I saw a very brilliant golden star. First, I thought that it could be Jupiter, and then I tried to see it better using a telescope. I didn’t see the moons of Jupiter that normally appear when you are using the telescope, and I realized that the strange object was emitting light of its own, and not reflecting the light of the sun as a planet does. I enlarged the image several times using the telescope, and I realized that the object, although very bright, was rather small. The next day, using the Stellarium computer program, I realized that there was no object showing in the location that I saw last night. It was a very mysterious thing! And also, on that same night, I saw an object passing near that strange star, in a route that I’m sure is not an airplane route.
Could you tell me what was that golden star and the object that passed near it?
T.S.A., Camanducaia, Brazil.

[photo below] Sweden – These comments were posted on YouTube regarding a UFO sighting on 1 March 2013: “This odd looking ‘star’ was recorded last night around 17.30 to 18.30 pm by me and my girlfriend in Göteborg (Sweden). The object moved extremely slowly and it appeared several hours earlier than other stars. It kept pulsating in various colours at an extremely fast pace. I am not convinced that this is either a star or a planet. It might be that off-course but I am not convinced yet. Some people think this might be Sirius, Nibiru or even a UFO-mothership. What do you think?” (Source: YouTube: UFO-Skywatcher Sävedalen) (Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was Maitreya’s ‘star’.)

Dear Editor, On 11 February 2013, I was coming back from Transmission Meditation in Valencia. From my car I saw in the sky, above a hill known as Monte Picayo, a red light, hovering over it without movement. At first I thought it was a plane, but then I realized that it was not moving and as I continued driving, the light remained there. When I got home, the light was still above the hill. I would like to know if that light was Maitreya’s ‘star’ or a spaceship? Name withheld, Valencia, Spain. (Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the light was Maitreya’s ‘star’.)

Q&A from SI April 2012

Q. A number of video “experts”, along with the largest UFO investigation group in the US, have declared the videos of the appearance of Maitreya’s ‘star’ over Jerusalem in January 2011 a hoax, without bothering to locate or interview other eyewitnesses. Would your Master kindly tell us how many people actually saw the ‘star’ over the Temple Mount that night?

A. Several thousand.

Q. You have said the four ‘star’ UFOs are the size of five football fields, but the photo of the ‘star’ over the Temple Mount published in Share International shows it appearing significantly smaller. Do the Space Brothers manipulate the size of the ‘star’ UFOs along with their shape and colour?

A. Yes.

Maitreya’s ‘star’

Dear Editor,
At some stage, on any clear night we get, I usually have a little ‘look’ for the ‘star’. On Wednesday night 12 August 2011 at about midnight I noticed ‘something’ in the sky – it wasn’t Jupiter and I don’t think it was a plane because it took about an hour from when I first saw it until it went out of sight on the horizon (a plane would take about 5 minutes). It was almost overhead when I first noticed it – it wasn’t very high in the sky and moved steadily in an east to west direction. It seemed to be flashing different colours – green, red – there was always some colour visible, but not like a plane where the lights flash on and off intermittently.

I don’t have any photo but would like to know if I have seen the ‘star’.

Dear Editor,
On Monday 16 January 2012, at 5.45pm, I was at Alexandra Palace in north London. Getting out of the car I saw an orange light to the west of the Palace, moving across the sky. There was also an extremely bright star in the sky and the orange object passed just underneath it and then simply vanished. When I looked into the sky 45 minutes later, the bright star had just simply vanished too, even though it was a clear night and all the other stars were still clearly visible.

Can you tell me what the “bright star” and the orange light were?

‘Maitreya’s ‘star’ witnessed across four US states A bright “mystery object” seen across California, Colorado, Nevada and Arizona on the night of 14 September 2011 has been widely reported by local US television news stations. California’s KCAL9 reported that their newsroom had been flooded with emails from people who had watched a mystery object “streaking across the night sky”. The brilliant light lit up the southern California night sky, and was seen by people over a huge area, from San Diego on the coast, right across the mountains, the desert, and as far inland as Las Vegas and Phoenix. The station played a video of the object passing over Glendora, California. According to News At Ten presenter Dave Bryan, people had described it as a bright light, or like a falling star, or like a red comet with a green light around it. A resident of San Clemente, California – who was able to capture the object in High Definition – described the object as “a red comet with a green glow around it”. Kim Curto was filming at her brother’s football game in Phoenix, Arizona, when she saw “a big, like, circular light move across the sky” and managed to capture it on video.

Home Spiral light over Norway – the ‘star’ that heralds Maitreya’s emergence


Photo by Svein-Egil Haugen
The enormous, spiral light with its glowing centre, seen over Norway on 9 December 2009, has excited and baffled thousands of Norwegians including astronomical experts. What does it mean?

On 12 December 2008 Share International Foundation announced that a large, bright ‘star’-like object would soon be seen in the sky. It is a sign heralding the imminent appearance of Maitreya, the World Teacher, on His first television interview, which will take place in the USA.

The ‘star’ is really one of four enormous spacecraft placed around the world. Since December 2008 numerous sightings of the ‘star’ have been reported on YouTube and television news programmes. Share International magazine has received hundreds of photographs showing the ‘star’ in a variety of stunning colours and shapes.

The huge spiral manifestation over Norway is an extension of the work of these spacecraft and is irrefutable evidence of their reality. Our information is that further such manifestations are planned for the near future.

HomeThe ‘Star’ Sign – new Share International video, now on YouTube

Share International has produced a 10 minute film called The ‘Star’ Sign, which is now available on YouTube website, presenting the extraordinary phenomenon of the ‘star’ heralding Maitreya’s emergence. Since Benjamin Creme’s first announcement in December 2008, Share International has received hundreds of photographs of the ‘star’ from all over the world, and witnesses have independently posted on YouTube dozens of videos of the ‘star’ from different countries with much debate as to its meaning and purpose.
The new film contains vivid photographs, video footage and media reports from Brazil, Colombia, Sky News, and a clip from a Benjamin Creme lecture. Viewers can see how the ‘star’ moves, changes shape and emits rays of brilliant colours. It is, of course, according to Benjamin Creme’s Master, not a star per se, but one of four gigantic spacecraft, positioned so that one is visible from any part of the globe, an awesome sign to the world that an extraordinary event is about to happen – the emergence of Maitreya into public view.
Take part in this extraordinary event by looking for the ‘star’. If you photograph or film it, please report it to the media or Share International magazine and help create an open media debate about its meaning and purpose.

HomeThe star that heralds Maitreya’s emergence


“In the very near future, people everywhere will have the opportunity to witness an extraordinary and significant sign, the like of which has been manifested only once before, at the birth of Jesus. Then, according to Christian teaching, a star appeared in the heavens and led three wise men from the East to the birthplace of Jesus. Soon, once again, a star-like luminary of brilliant power will be seen around the world.” (Benjamin Creme’s Master, ‘Maitreya’s first interview’, SI Jan/Feb 2009)


On 12 December 2008 Share International distributed a news release announcing that in the very near future a large, bright star would appear in the sky visible throughout the world, night and day, heralding the imminent appearance of Maitreya in His first interview on a major US television programme. Since early January 2009 sightings of the star have been reported all over the world and hundreds of sightings have been sent to Share International. We include a selection of the latest reports from the media, Share International readers, and sightings from YouTube. All are genuine sightings confirmed by Benjamin Creme’s Master to be the ‘star’.


How to spot the ‘star’
“It behaves in a way no other celestial object does.” — Benjamin Creme

The ‘star’
• resides in our Earth’s atmosphere
• can move, spin, pulsate and blink
• can change size and shape (eg round, diamond, hexagonal)
• can change position in the sky
• can get closer, and recede, at speed
• is very bright and sometimes the only star visible
• can radiate bright colours, often in quick succession
• has been sighted day and night
• can respond to thought: has been known to appear and move when asked
• several witnesses have even seen all four ‘stars’ together
• is seen all over the world.

Note: Benjamin Creme explains that the ‘star’ regularly recharges its energy from the sun and is not always visible. Also note that in cities high-rise buildings can obscure sightings of the ‘star’, so keep watching.

11 November 2009

Japan on TVA ‘mysterious luminary object in the summer sky’ was recently reported on nationwide Japanese television station.

On 17 July 2009, Japanese Fuji Television during its evening Super News programme reported the story of a bright, moving, star-like object and showed a video taken by a viewer, Mr Tokumitu Yanagisawa.

The witness Mrs Yanagisawa said that she and her husband saw from their window a ‘mysterious luminary object’ in the western sky above the trees. ‘It was emitting light, shining brightly, changing colours, green, yellow, red and so on. It was moving vertically, up and down, while spinning.’
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms the ‘mysterious luminous object’ was the ‘star’.)


Heavenly herald

As we go to press, reports are coming in of a large, very bright “fireball”, a “shining bullet”, or a “glowing heavenly body” as German media described it. The object was seen in the early evening of 13 October in clear skies above Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. Over the Netherlands there are reports that the object broke the sound barrier with the accompanying sonic boom. (Source: Zeit-online,, NDR Online, Germany; de Volkskrant, the Netherlands)
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the “heavenly body” is the ‘star’ heralding Maitreya’s first interview.)

The ‘star’ reported on television

Boca Raton, Florida, USA, 6 July 2009. According to one witness: “ There was a green light in the sky, but it was too close to be a star. It was moving side-to-side and hovering, like nothing I have ever seen before … it was a green glowing diamond shaped object, about 100 feet above us, floating”. WPTV, a local television station, reported the story and showed a video. (YouTube;


RCN Colombia News, Colombia

RCN Colombia News, ColombiaTelevision news channel RCN Colombia reported an incident which took place on 15 April 2009 in Pereira, capital city of the state of Risarald. Announcing that a “journalist films a UFO in Pereira, the spaceship flew over several buildings”, it told how television journalist Liliana López saw a gigantic, bright light in the sky from her eighth-floor balcony at 9.20pm. She captured the diamond-shaped object on her video camera and reported that it emitted a multi-coloured light. It drifted across the sky for several minutes and then mysteriously disappeared. UFO experts are investigating the extraordinary footage. López recalls: “ I saw a very big, resplendent light in the sky, certainly not normal at all. It was easy to see it was not a star or a plane and taking advantage of the fact that I had a video camera with good resolution I tried to get some close-up footage. You can see quite clearly what a strange object it is. There is a moment when it’s already going away – it starts turning around, around, around, around and then finally moves away – it’s perfectly evident that it’s a [space]ship”.

Sky Television, UK

Sky Television, UKOn 22 March 2009 Sky Television News interviewed thirteen-year-old Harriet Rogers who filmed what she thought was a UFO hovering above Shrewsbury, England. On 21 February 2009, after a call from her grandmother about a bright light in the sky, Harriet and her father went upstairs to have a look and saw a brilliant ball of light pulsing and changing colours. Harriet explained: “To the human eye, it just looked like a bright light but, on the video camera we could see it pulsing, then suddenly changing colours. They decided to go out and follow the light to try to get a bit closer and they started to notice it was going down beyond the horizon. She added: “This is when you could see with your own eyes that it was pulsing and changing colours. We stopped in a lay-by and rested the camcorder on a gatepost where we got the best shots. We could see how it was getting much brighter than before.” Asked by a Sky reporter if she thought it was a UFO Harriet said: “Yes. It’s come back, it’s definitely come back, literally every starry night.” There have been many unexplained lights in the sky reported over Shropshire recently. The Shropshire Star newspaper reported: “There have been up to 30 sightings of mysterious light objects logged by UFO experts in the last two months [February and March 2009] with at least eight recorded in the last fortnight.” (Source: Sky News; The Shropshire UK)


The Sun, UK

The Sun, UKOn 16 February 2009 The Sun newspaper included a report from Scott Shepperd of a bright light or “craft” spotted over Colchester, Essex. A video of his sighting was placed on the newspaper’s website. Shepperd had been to the cinema with a friend before he captured the dazzling light in the sky. He said: “As I was about to get in the car to go home, a golden ball of light no higher than 100ft above me caught my attention. I said to my mate to look, he ignored me and said its probably just a plane. I asked him to check anyway and, just as he did, it started moving over the top of us. It was very bright orange and moved very quietly: it had no flashing light which made me question if it was a plane. Quick as I could, I got out my mobile phone to video it but by the time I had got it out and set it up it had moved pretty far away." (Source: The Sun, UK)


Chester Chronicle, UK

“Orange UFO spotted above Chester skies” is the headline in the Chester Chronicle on 30 April 2009. Marty Wilbur was standing on his balcony using his mobile phone when he saw a “pulsating orange light” rising up in front of him at 9.02 pm on 26 April 2009. He filmed the mysterious orange glow as it tracked northwards and disappeared. “I could see this orange ball rising up, at a 90-degree angle, straight up, then it just sat there, sat still for a few seconds. To my amazement it started moving sideways. Right away I recognized it wasn’t something normal that I had ever seen before. There was no sound at all. All you can hear are birds chirping on the video.” (Source:

Gazeta Alerta, BrazilOn 8 February 2009, during the live television programme Gazeta Alerta in Rio Branco City, Brazil, the film crew spotted an object in the sky changing colour from white, to red, to blue. The live coverage continued as they filmed the object for more than two hours, with more than 25 people witnessing the event. The object moved from east to south and then from south to west.

Milliyet Kemer News, Turkey

Milliyet Kemer News, TurkeyOn 25 April 2009 at 3.30am a group of security guards outside a hotel in the coastal town of Kemer, Turkey, saw an unusual object hovering over the ocean and photographed it. Security guard Erman Bulut was at the front of the hotel when he saw the hexagonal object doing impossible manoeuvres above the sea and changing shape and colour. He recalls: “At first I couldn’t understand what I was witnessing. I saw this large object rising from the sea. It definitely wasn’t a plane or balloon. It was leaving a trail and it was glowing. My hands were shaking from the excitement. As it descended towards the sea I ran to the beach but then it began to rapidly rise eventually merging with the stars. It was hexagonal, orange and fluorescent. As far as I am concerned it was definitely a UFO. One does not get the chance to see such things often and I feel lucky to have witnessed this. When one takes into account the size of the universe and the number of stars, UFOs and aliens become a certainty.” Erman's co-workers Mehemet Aydin and Sezgin Cesur also saw the object and described it. “It was hexagonal but at times it's shape changed. It descended and then rose, disappearing into the sky. “I didn't sleep all night from excitement” concluded Mr Cesur. (Source: Milliyet Kemer News, Turkey)


All News Web

According to All News Web, formations of UFOs have been seen above cities throughout the world in the first few months of 2009. In China, reports the website, a UFO was filmed by a Beijing tourist on 18 February 2009 in Kashgar in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous region along the ancient Silk Road. “Me and my father were walking through a park near the Science and Technology Complex returning to our hotel when I noticed a very bright and clear object in the sky that appeared too close and too bright to be a star,” said Lee Kwan Hing. “I used a Panasonic High Definition camcorder to take the film. As I zoomed in on the object I noticed that it had the form of a yo-yo and I could make out geometric patterns on the object. Is it a UFO, a satellite or a star?” he asks. “Perhaps an All News Web reader can help Hing solve this mystery,” suggests Michael Cohen of All News Web. (Source:

The ‘star’ seen over Los Arenales, Cordoba, Spain

Spanish television reports on the ‘star’

On 5 April 2009 the popular programme Cuarto Milenio (Fourth Millennium) on Spanish television channel Cuatro, reported on the ‘star’ sign.
Footage was shown of a film taken in Los Arenales, Cordoba province, by ecologist Bartolome Olivares who had been walking in the mountains when he saw a big, orange light on the horizon. Journalist Iker Jimenez told the viewers: “Important. Please pay attention to this, my friends who are watchful, looking at the skies. In the last days of March we have received many sightings, videos and photos. What is happening? Let’s look at this – a kind of orange object, circular, spherical, that comes close and moves away, that seems to pulsate.” (Source: Cuatro TV, Spain)

Times of Malta, Malta

“What’s that mysterious light in the night sky?” asked the Times of Malta on 23 March 2009. “For more than a month, a bright light in the sky has been astounding those who see it, making them wonder what it is,” says Times reporter, Cynthia Busuttil. “Almost every evening, soon after sunset, the bright light appears over the Floriana church, moving to Lija and then onto Ta’ Qali. An hour later, it just disappears into thin air…. But what is this light? A star, a planet ... or an unidentified flying object? And does this sighting have the potential of turning Malta into the Mediterranean’s Roswell? According to eyewitnesses, the light is brighter than anything else in the sky and appears to hover lower than passing planes.”
The Astronomical Society of Malta, however, blamed atmospheric turbulence when Venus is low in the sky, which can cause it to change colour dramatically. But noted one observant commentator: “At first I thought that it is something about Venus or Saturn … but soon after I realised that at times the light shines even though it’s cloudy.” (Source:

11 November 2009

Dear Editor,
When I was back in Austria during the summer [2009] I always sat on my terrace and regularly saw very bright stars. Sometimes only one, and sometimes two at the same time, and they were moving around quite fast. I was sure that either they were the ‘stars’ Share International reported or spaceships. I was very moved by the sight and started to pray.

Please can you confirm if I saw the ‘star’ or spaceships or both?
R.I., Rankweil, Vorarlberg, Austria.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms the sightings were of two of the four ‘stars’. The ‘star’ is, of course, a spaceship.)

Dear Editor,
On the night of 26/27 September 2009 just after midnight some of the participants of the Transmission Meditation Conference in the Netherlands were outside on the terrace at the back of the main building of Rolduc looking at a star in the sky that behaved in such a way that it could be the ‘star’. Suddenly we saw a flash of light across the sky and we all cried out: “Wow, a shooting star!” Once home I was not so sure it was a shooting star. The flash was spectacular and of an extremely beautiful golden-yellow-reddish colour. The star was east to northeast. (1) Was it the ‘star’ we were watching? (2) Did we see a shooting star or a flash of light connected with the ‘star’ or a UFO?
M.L., The Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that (1) it was the ‘star’, and (2) it was a shooting star.)

Dear Editor,
Every day around 9pm from my living room I see many planes going to and from Amsterdam-Schiphol airport. On the evening of 26 September 2009 I also saw a very special star. It was a beautiful orange colour and was as big as the moon or the sun and had small pointed ends from where sparks emitted.

Full of admiration I followed this impressive, magnificent star and watched it until it became smaller and disappeared to a dot. This ‘star’ went from west to east. It lasted all in all about three minutes. It made a profound impression on me and I felt tinglings and goose bumps all over.

Was this the ‘star’ that heralds the emergence of Maitreya, the World Teacher?
J.B., De Goorn, The Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms it was the ‘star’.)

Dear Editor,
On Tuesday 4 August 2009 the moon had a star alongside its left. Then, two nights later, on the right-hand side. Was this the ‘star’ or was this the satellite I heard had just been launched on 4 and 6 August?
J.J., Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, UK.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms it was the ‘star’.)

Dear Editor,
I have seen beautiful stars several times but sometimes I believe they are not stars but UFOs. One in particular caught my attention on the morning of 1 August 2009 at 5.30 am in Madison, Virginia, in the United States. In reality there were two stars, they say one of them is Venus (I have my doubts about it), the other one on the other side of the sky looked like an identical twin.

I saw another one in front of my window in January 2009, it was different since it had many colours and there were two more on the other side of the sky. I would like to know if I have seen Maitreya’s ‘star’.
A.A., Groveland, Florida, United States.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the sighting on 1 August was the ‘star’ alongside a spacecraft. The January sighting was also the ‘star’.)

Dear Editor,
(1) On the night of 9 August 2009, I saw a strange object in the sky. It looked like a little star, but it was moving slowly, similar to the speed of an airplane. It was strange, because the object emitted little light, but twice it began to brighten with a very strong light.

For some time here in São Paulo we have seen a very bright star in the east. It looks like Venus, but I think this planet should not be appearing in the sky this time of the year. Was it the ‘star’?

(2) On the night of 16 August 2009 I was observing the sky when I saw a red light going upwards in the far distance. It had a particular brightness and for some time it moved up in the sky, and then began to go towards the east, and after that to the north. Was this the ‘star’ of Maitreya or a UFO?

(3) On that same night, I saw another strange object in the sky. It was big and had some lights on it, similar to those of a plane (they were red and blue), but the form was different from a plane, and the strangest thing was that it was moving but didn’t make any noise. It just moved across the sky from east to north, at a low altitude. What was it?

(4)Also on 16 August 2009, late in the night, I saw another strange object in the sky. This time, the oval object was bigger and it changed direction when it moved. Was this another sign of the Space Brothers?
T.S.A., São Paulo, Brazil.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms (1) It was the ‘star’. (2) It was Maitreya’s own Lightship. (3) It was a spacecraft. (4) Yes.)

Dear Editor,
One evening I was reading The Emergence newspaper about the ‘star’ and found it really interesting so I went onto the website to have a look at the photos from all over the world. That evening between 9.30-10pm, I was walking down the stairs to my car when I saw this really bright star shining. It kept changing colours from red to green in the western sky. It made me stop in my path and I sat on the stairs for a while thinking it was a plane but it wasn’t moving. I kept looking out the window for it for a few days but didn’t see anything. Then a week or so later when driving home from work I saw it again but this time, northwest and left of One Tree Hill, flickering red and green, between 5-6.30pm. Another time while driving, I saw a flickering red and green star in the southwest between 5-7pm. Could you tell me whether these were the ‘star’ or a plane or another planet?
J.T., Aukland, New Zealand.

(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that each time it was the ‘star’)

Dear Editor,
On 4 August 2009, during the closing minutes of the evening programme on Radio 10 AM 710, Buenos Aires, Argentina, someone raised the issue about a sighting of a strange light in the sky. Several listeners called confirming that they too had seen it. Was this light the ‘star’ heralding Maitreya’s emergence?
S. M., Buenos Aires, Argentina.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the light was the ‘star’)

Dear Editor,
On Thursday 16 July 2009 at 11.30pm I was looking up at the sky around my house and noticed a very bright twinkly star low in the sky. In my mind I asked the star: “If you move a tiny bit I will be more certain that you are really that star-like luminary body”. To my great surprise the star started to move very quickly from the south-west to the east, from the front to the back yard of my house. To my even greater amazement the star – looking brighter and bigger – turned back to the front at a high speed and disappeared behind the clouds. There was no noise or jetstream as with a plane. This event took a few minutes. Was it a spacecraft?
K. J., Schoten, Belgium.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms it was the ‘star’.)

Dear Editor,
On Sunday 30 August 2009in La Grande Motte sur Mer, south of France, between 9.30pm and 10.30pm we saw what looked like the ‘star’ above the sea to the right of the moon in a south-westerly direction.
Between 11.15pm and 1.15am the star was to be seen left of the moon in a south-easterly direction. It pulsated really clearly, moved and changed colour (all sorts of colours, in fact). Was this the ‘star’?
M.V., The Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms it was the ‘star’.)

Dear Editor,
I have been following your website for 12 years now and I value it tremendously. Sometimes we hear something that speaks from the heart and our souls know it is the truth. That’s how I feel about the coming of Maitreya and the information you put out. So thank you! There is a question I would like to ask. Around 4am on 4 July 2009 in Delaware, USA, I thought I saw the ‘star’. It was the only star up in the sky and it was extremely bright and appeared to be larger than normal. When I looked through binoculars it appeared to be a lot of white circles and the whole thing moved on its side and then on its back and then it kept changing. (But I did not see colours, just white circled lights.) Was this a UFO?
B. O., Wilmington, Delaware, USA.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms it was the ‘star’.)

Dear Editor,
On 24 June 2009 after Transmission Meditation I was cycling home. It was all cloudy. When I went over the Stone Bridge I noticed a big, bright star below the clouds, moving slowly from north to south.
It pulsated and looked like a fireball. The whole thing lasted about five minutes. When I arrived home I telephoned a group member living in Berlin and told him what I had seen. Five minutes later he phoned back and told me that right after our talk he went on his balcony with his wife and son and they all noticed the same thing in the sky: a bright star, moving, and looking like a fireball. Was it the ‘star’?
J.A., Regensburg, Germany.

Dear Editor,
On Saturday 20 June 2009 a friend and I left the Art Cinema in Hilversum, the Netherlands, around 11.30pm and drove along the motorway towards Blaricum when we saw a very strange spectacle in the sky in the direction of Almere: on the left in the sky we saw a very bright star and to its right a kind of ‘cloud’ of at least 15, but maybe even 20, lights. After we left the highway we stopped the car, but then we only saw the bright star that was moving away from us, slowly, and eventually disappeared. We both thought it could be a UFO mothership surrounded by a number of UFOs. We are very interested to know what we saw?
E. B., the Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the “bright star” was indeed the ‘star’. The other objects were spacecraft from the planet Mars.)

Dear Editor,
It was 28 July 2009, at 12.19am, that I saw a star from my home in Maastricht, the Netherlands, that made me wonder; it was south-south-east of Maastricht. And at 4.48am there was another star in the east over Margraten, but this ‘star’ was higher up in the sky.

(1) The star at 12.19am was spherical with a clear diameter and an enormous luminosity. (2) The star of 4.48am looked kind of butterfly-like. It was shaped like a triangle with indentations of light in it, that made me think of a butterfly, and the points sparkled brightly. (3) I saw also a star at 12.19am on the west side. It was smaller in diameter and was sparkling less brightly than the ones I described above, but was still remarkable compared to the other visible luminaries. Did I see the ‘star’?
M. J., the Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that (1) and (2) were sightings of the ‘star’; (3) was a spacecraft from Venus.)

Dear Editor,
On 27 July 2009, my girlfriend and I were again looking at the sky at the three stars which are always there, always shining, always first to appear at the evening sky and shining more than all the other stars – one directly above, one to the south-west, and one to the south, just above the horizon. This last one is constantly changing colour to red, so everyone can see it.

Yesterday, my girlfriend was sitting outside, looking at the star right above and searching to see if the fourth star would appear. This fourth star is a bit tricky, because it is always on the move. As strange as it sounds, this is what happened: she called for me to come outside, and we sat there, looking together. Out of nowhere, this fourth star appeared, travelling across the sky, in a northerly direction. It didn’t travel from the opposite direction (from the south), it just appeared in the centre of the sky, travelling north. We saw the star and wondered if this was the ‘star’, because it was shining the same as all the other stars.

I myself was thinking if that is all, then its nothing special. My girlfriend was thinking: “Get bigger, and brighter.” Then suddenly, the star blinked, just like a lighthouse at the sea at night. We were stunned, we just couldn’t believe it, but the star, as if hearing our thoughts, blinked again, and again, and again, five times in a row.

What is really interesting is this wasn’t a one-off event. We had seen it before. We usually walk the dog every evening around 8pm, and I go running every second day for an hour. I saw this fourth star for the first time when I was running – it was travelling from west to the east, in the northern part of the sky. The next time we saw it together, it was travelling in the same direction, but just above. The third time my girlfriend saw it, again travelling across the sky.

On the fourth time, we went for a walk with the dog, as usual. All the time I somehow knew that we would see it again. We were walking for an hour and we were almost back at home, so I thought to myself, better luck next time. But despite this, I looked again at the star shining just above, thinking to myself: “Light up, Light up! Light up!” And then it appeared out of nowhere, in the vicinity of this star just above. My girlfriend started shouting and then it blinked. As I had wished. It was there for 5 seconds and then it was gone. Are these the four stars?
M. Z., Majsperk, Slovenia.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms, yes they were the four ‘stars’.)

Dear Editor,
Cotati, CaliforniaA few nights ago I noticed an incredibly bright object hovering in the sky, not far from the moon. It didn’t dawn on me until later that I might be witnessing the ‘star’. For the past three nights, I have seen the same object in the sky, and I have taken pictures and filmed it. After reviewing my photos, I realize now that the object has moved a fair amount since the first time I saw it.
Interestingly, about a week ago, I heard that a friend had ‘called the star’ and had then seen it. So, with my mind I politely invited the ‘star’ to visit. Is it the ‘star’ that I’m seeing?
E.G., Cotati, California, USA.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was the ‘star’.)


Dear Editor,
As we left the cinema in Breda at 0.30 on Sunday morning 9 August 2009, we walked in a north-westerly direction. At that moment we saw a bright shining star in the far distance. That night it was perfectly clear. The other stars were very bright, but they were not flickering. This pulsating star changed colours rapidly. We saw it turning from red to green, purple, blue and white. The rhythm of pulsation also changed. Sometimes it pulsated, the next minute not that much and then suddenly again it flashed. It also moved slowly away from us. At first it was quite a big star but at around 1.10 it was nothing more than a pulsating point in the far distance.

Was this just an ordinary star flickering due to atmospheric pollution or was it the star heralding the public emergence of Maitreya the World Teacher?
M.V., Breda, The Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was ‘the star’ heralding Maitreya’s emergence)


Dear Editor,
During a recent trip to Italy, at the Pedra e Cupa campsite in Budoni, Sardinia, at 5am on Saturday 4 July a bright star was clearly seen in the western region of the sky and was the only star visible in the sky at this time. Was it the ‘star’?
A.S. and C.P., Edinburgh, Scotland.

Dear Editor,
I live in Wemb, a German village near the Dutch border. In the early morning hours of 7 August 2009 at about 5 am I opened a skylight in my bedroom and saw a single big, bright yellow star in an easterly direction, and wondered if it could be the ‘star’. After a while, it began to move up and down and sideways. I was completely stunned and overwhelmed. Inwardly I repeatedly asked the star to move again, which it did, but not immediately. I have no camera but with my binoculars I saw a fuzzy round shape with glittering points. There is an airport close by, but it definitively was no plane or ordinary star. I observed the star for about an hour, then it became smaller, but was still moving. Did I really see ‘the star’ or was it just my imagination?
H.H., Wemb, Germany.

Dear Editor,
On the morning of 10 July 2009, between 3.30 and 4am, I happened to look out of my bedroom window, and saw a huge star shining brilliantly in the dawn light. The star must have been about six times as large as an ‘average’ star. I was so amazed that I called a friend to witness the phenomenon. Was this the ‘star’ or was it actually Venus?
A.L., Goudhurst, Kent, UK.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was the ‘star’)


Dear Editor,
On 2 May 2009, in the small hours, I saw a shining object very high in the sky. It was the only object shining in the sky, all the stars having disappeared. It was white coloured and round like a ball. At a certain point, its luminosity decreased as if to disappear and then it regained its size and brilliance. Then clouds obscured my view, but once the clouds had dissipated, I saw the object had disappeared, but after a while, I saw it again in another place, lower in the sky, and then it disappeared again in the clouds.
Was this a UFO or the ‘star’ announcing the arrival of Maitreya?

(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was the ‘star’.)


Dear Editor,
Myself and a workmate were travelling to Mackay in Queensland, Australia, and as the sun was coming up on a long road miles from nowhere we saw what looked exactly like the ‘star’ in Share International so we pulled over and viewed it with a cheap telescope we had in the vehicle. That star thing can move from one end of the sky to the other in a blink of an eye, it’s amazing. Also, in my mind it has no real or definite size; it’s all very abstract to the usual way we think of things. It challenged me; in fact it sent me a little nutty for a while. It looks as if it cools off or something and it turns an earthy-red clay-type colour and the fiery-looking interior of it settles. As the sunlight moved in, it disappeared. It’s crazy – absolutely mind blowing to see it as we did.
A.S., Brisbane, Australia.

Dear Editor,
Last week I was awakened at 4am and needed to go out to my car to retrieve a bite of candy for a low blood sugar episode. Over my shoulder I thought there was a really bright light, then I did not see it. After the low blood sugar was dealt with, I walked back out to have another look and lo and behold a tremendous, beautiful, sparkling, twinkling – let’s just call it a luminary because star does not quite fit – way too huge and colorful – up in the east, very high. I have been up now most nights and have begun a dawn vigil with the beautiful ‘star’. I awaken most mornings at 4.30 to go and have a look and meditate with this star – it feels like family! I often stay with it until it is high in the sky, well into the new day and still very visible!
I started seeing the ‘star’ back in late December 2008 and then it suddenly was gone by the spring solstice. I sure hope this is its return?

11 November 2009

Q. Some people who have seen the ‘star’ report that they seem to experience an energy emanating from it. Does this really happen?

A. Yes. The ‘star’ (all four of them) does indeed radiate energy, the quality which we would usually associate with love, which is why some people say that they actually love the ‘star’ and hold it in awe as something sacred.

Q. I don’t think I have seen the ‘star’ but would like to very much. If someone strongly desires to see it, is it possible that it would show itself in response?

A. Yes. Several people have reported this phenomenon. What we have to remember is that the ‘star’ is a Spaceship with people inside it and it is They who pick up the desire and respond.

Q. I saw the ‘star’ on 2 March 2009, which was confirmed in Share International magazine. (1) Do sightings of the ‘star’ happen according to a person’s karma, responsibility to inform or other reason? (2) What would be the most effective way to inform people, and therefore accelerate the first interview of Maitreya and eventually the Day of Declaration?

A. (1) No. Anyone can see the ‘star’. (2) Contact media with what you have seen and ask them to ask questions about this unusual phenomenon.

Q. A short while ago I sent an e-mail to Share International to ask if the ‘star’ had appeared over Glasgow yet and received an e-mail from I assume Mr Creme himself whereby he stated he would try and arrange for the ‘star’ to make an appearance over my area and commented ‘jovially’ that he had very fond memories of Glasgow since of course this is his birthplace. I was absolutely delighted that he had returned my e-mail, it wasn’t expected.

I was wondering if the ‘star’ has already appeared over Glasgow recently because I fear I may have missed it, as I was on holiday recently. It’s not that I am that desperate to see it, it’s just that I told my children that it would be appearing soon and I would hate to disappoint them. I wish to put no pressure on anybody, least of all those who are flying the ‘crafts’.

I thank you for your patience and understanding and wish all who work for Share International well. Keep up the good work.

A. Keep your eyes on the skies.

Q. (1) Apart from the Observatory of Malta, are there other scientific institutions aware of the presence of the ‘star’? (2) Which is the best way of accelerating the public awareness of the ‘star’ and its significance? (3) Are any countries more aware of the ‘star’ than others? Many UFO groups detect large spaceships but are not aware of their meaning.

A. (1) I cannot believe that serious workers in the world’s observatories have not seen the ‘star’ — they must have taken note of it, but not understanding its significance, they probably dismissed it. Whenever someone unacquainted with astronomy contacts such a professional body they are fobbed off with remarks like, it was probably Jupiter or Venus, or some other planet in our system. They dismiss, a priori, the possibility of finding something new, like Maitreya’s ‘star’. Ordinary people are upstaged by this response and believe the astronomers. This of course is true of media as well, who need some professional person in astronomy to admit the existence of the ‘star’. However, there was good footage of the ‘star’ on Japanese Fuji Television [17 July 2009] for 1 minute 47 seconds of the ‘star’ doing its ‘tricks’ twirling round, moving, changing colour and size. (2) a: Talk about it. b: Photograph it if possible and send the photographs to local media and/or Share International. (3) No.

Q. I am confused about the connection between Maitreya and beings from other planets, e.g. the large spaceships that are appearing as the ‘star’. What is the connection between Maitreya and these Beings? Why would they be involved in His coming?

A. We are all part of one unitary solar system. The public may not generally know about, or believe in, the reality of life on other planets of our system but the Hierarchies of all the planets are in contact. There is indeed a kind of Interplanetary Parliament representing all the planets. The Space Brothers are here to help the people of Earth to overcome the difficulties which our own ignorance has brought about and to work with Maitreya, and our Spiritual Hierarchy as a whole, in the work of salvage. It is a spiritual mission.


23 September 2009

Q. When will Maitreya first appear on television? Is it related to more people seeing the ‘star’ and/or to the further collapse of our financial systems?
A. It does not entail a further collapse of our systems and it is not really related to more people seeing the ‘star’.
My information is that Maitreya’s first interview is taking place very, very soon – sooner than you think possible. But obviously, if more people saw the ‘star’ and reported the sightings we could start a worldwide media debate about what the ‘stars’ are.

People needn’t necessarily agree with what I believe them to be – gigantic spaceships: one from Mars, one from Jupiter, one from Venus and one from a planet whose name has not been given. They are spacecraft (not ordinary UFOs doing their ordinary work, which is extraordinary) which do this special work vis-à-vis the ‘star’.

I have been told the four ‘stars’ will be in place until the Day of Declaration, in the North, South, East and West, so that wherever you are in the world your area will be covered by a ‘star’. All you have to do is keep looking for them; they don’t appear all the time. People imagine you just look up and suddenly see them. It is not that simple. They are gigantic but they do not fill the sky. They are larger than planets and stars and they move.

Each ‘star’ is about the size of five football fields put together. They don’t appear all the time because they have to recharge their batteries. So they move as close to the sun as possible to recharge their batteries that way. That takes time and then they return to position and move around. That is the thing about the ‘star’ – it moves around. Sometimes, they move about if asked: when you see one you can ask it to move; they have been known to respond to human thought. In fact, we recently published a letter in Share International in which the writer saw the star and asked: “If you are the star can I see another one?” And almost immediately another appeared next to the first, and then another and the fourth. They lined up next to one another.


Q. How can Maitreya emerge if the mainstream media continues to suppress reports about the ‘star’?
A. If the media were to continue indefinitely to suppress reports about the ‘star’ Maitreya would just come forward.

Maitreya has had these craft from our own solar system placed in position around the Earth as a sign heralding His emergence. It replicates what happened in the Middle East when Jesus was born. The Star of Bethlehem guiding the wise men was a spacecraft. This is a repetition of that event. But now there are four and they can be seen sometimes during the day and, of course, at night. They can be seen if you are assiduous and you look often. If you go out star-hunting take a camera with a good zoom. We have photographs of the star which look more like spacecraft than stars.

Look at YouTube [website] and you will see dozens of videos or photographs of the ‘star’.


Q. Are the ‘stars’ life forms?
A. The ‘stars’ are not life forms, they are craft made on Mars, Venus, Jupiter and the other unnamed planet. Two were made on Mars which is the spacecraft ‘factory’ for our solar system; it makes about 90 per cent of all the spacecraft. They are made by thought and are not of dense physical matter. If you went to Mars you would see nothing, but there are more Martians on Mars than there are people on Earth.


 Q. Are the ‘star’ visitors guided by Maitreya?
A. No. I am sure that this has all been well thought out between Maitreya and the Space Brothers. I am sure He would leave it up to them to carry out the required mission.


Q. The ‘star’, which you announced in December 2008, is not constantly visible throughout the whole world, but now and then in some places. If the ‘star’ were to be visible constantly, the acceptance by the public would be much easier. Is the appearance of the ‘star’ bound by certain laws?
A. Yes. They can only show their light for a given number of hours per day before needing to be recharged from the sun.


Q. Is there any reason to hope that the Emergence will take place anytime soon? At Christmas you gave many people who trusted you reason to set their hopes very high, but it all seems to have ‘petered’ out. What was billed as a “very bright star visible to everyone both day and night” seems to have panned out to be a tiny fraction of what we were led to hope for. That has caused some people to back away from Share International. (1) Is it possible that Maitreya’s emergence may take place a number of years from now, or (2) that He may have changed His mind about working openly on the world stage?

A. (1) No. (2) No. Of course, everyone hopes to see Maitreya soon but they are so impatient, unaware as they are of the tremendous opposition that exists, cosmic and planetary, to Maitreya’s emergence. The question to ask oneself is, I think, what have I done to speed His emergence? Is it enough or am I just waiting on the sidelines for Maitreya to act?

Q. (1) Is the new ‘star’ the return of the star of Bethlehem or the “sign of the Son of Man” as prophesized by Jesus? (2) Are all the things that have been happening in the recent past, signs of Him appearing soon? (3) How do you explain the Bible’s prophecy in Matthew 24:29-31, where Jesus says He will come “on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory”? And the scripture that says: “And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming”, says the Lord of Hosts.” (Malachi 3:1) This is plainly talking about a real temple in Israel (to me, at least). The problem is that the Jewish people have not rebuilt the ancient temple of Solomon. This prophecy is yet to be fulfilled. (4) How do you see this happening?
A. (1) The ‘star’ is, symbolically, the sign of the Son of Man and heralds the first appearance of Maitreya, the World Teacher, on US television, interviewed not as Maitreya, but as an ordinary man. (2) Yes. (3) Maitreya descended from His retreat in the high Himalaya on 8 July 1977, stayed some days in Pakistan, then came from Karachi to London, UK, on 19 July 1977, thus “coming in the clouds” which today all can do by aeroplane. (4) The ‘temple’ referred to in this symbolic text is not a building but means humanity, to which the Son of Man returns as the oldest and highest of men.

Q. Fear still sells better than hope. This is one reason for media inhibition of the ‘star’. Fear also governs their editors. I had an experience with a nationwide paper whose editor in chief refused to publish an advert for the ‘star’. He didn’t state any reason for declining, but I guess it had been fear of something strange, peculiar and controversial. Most people would rather go on in old self-destructive ways and media as a whole are the last ones who would
A. I totally agree.

Q. I was at your London lecture on 23 April 2009 and you spoke very urgently about the need to get the existence of the ‘star’ into media outlets (radio, television, the internet, etc), so that there is an open public discussion/debate about its meaning.

A. As Maitreya says: “Nothing happens by itself. Man must act and implement his will.” Maitreya desires as much public discussion as possible otherwise the function of the ‘star’ in heralding His approach,


Q. I have been following the news about the ‘star’. I am very much hoping that what people are seeing is the miracle star. But I am wondering whether any unusual sightings have been reported by people who spend their days looking at the stars through giant telescopes, etc. Were the scientific community to observe something new I would be reassured that it is not simply Venus being mistaken for something more unusual. Has this happened yet?

A. The response from professional stargazers has been a deafening silence. Why the silence? Are they following governmental orders to keep quiet about any unusual sightings (like UFOs)? On the other hand, reports of sightings have been flooding in from all over the world – from Norway to New Zealand and the USA to Japan. YouTube is full of reports, many of the ‘star’ although the reporter usually has no idea what, in fact, he is seeing. Some earlier reports were indeed about Venus, but since 28 March Venus has gone beyond our sight. So now there is no confusion. The ‘star’ is brighter even than Venus, changes colour frequently and moves position. So obviously it is not a real star. There are, in fact, four such “star-like luminaries” covering the world. They are gigantic spacecraft (each one about the size of five football grounds put together). They all come from planets of our own solar system. They are a sign, heralds of the first public appearance on American television of Maitreya, the World Teacher.


Q. Thanks for all of the great work that you have done so gracefully for so many years. I have one question that has been gnawing at my mind for several weeks: why have you been calling the light in the sky ‘the star’, while some of your regular readers know it is one or more UFOs?
It seems that many people would quickly become very confused by your references to ‘the star’, especially after they look at the photographs (and accompanying text) on the Share International website that clearly indicates that it appears and disappears in a wide variety of different locations, colours, and forms, and that it moves around randomly (unlike any other star) like a spacecraft might.
To my mind calling it a‘star’, makes it all too tempting for the public (including all those who are open to UFOs), to dismiss the story as baloney. So, why not cut out the pretence and call it a UFO?

A. There is no pretence. Knowing the nature of the ‘star’, as four gigantic spaceships from several planets of our System, I had great difficulty in deciding just how to present it to the general public and media. I decided to follow my Master’s example. He had called it a “star-like luminary of brilliant power”, and related it to the ‘star’ which led the ‘three wise men’ to the birthplace of Jesus. Some of us know that that ‘star’ was a spacecraft too, but is accepted by millions as a miracle star.

It was just before Christmas so I called it a ‘Christmas star’, sure that that would be more interesting and magnetic than a prediction about a UFO. In Britain at least, people are much more sceptical of UFOs than in the USA, for example. Of course, at each lecture I make it clear that what looks like a star is, in fact, one of four huge spacecraft. In a lecture, one has time and opportunity to enlarge on the subject and the meaning and purpose of the phenomenon. In a press release or advertisement one is limited by space and the need to be succinct. The result from the public has been encouraging – eager and excited and amazed by the sheer beauty of the spectacle. The response of the media has been almost nil, as if there was an embargo on mentioning something so important as the herald of the Christ. However, it could be that media interest is starting now. Thank you for your kind words.

Q. Many people in foreign countries have had the pleasure of seeing the ‘star’, but I don’t think it has been over England very much. I live in the south-east, and I haven’t heard of anyone seeing it here in my area. So often the skies are cloudy, but I look every day and night for it. Is it likely to come here again? I have downloaded the photograph of it over Oslo, and given it out to many people in the hope of spreading the news of Maitreya. God bless you all at Share International. I love the magazine.

A. We have some excellent photographs sent in to Share International by people in these islands, but our cloudy skies are certainly a hindrance. However, keep looking and, if possible, take pictures. Thank you for your comments on Share International magazine.


Q. I have noticed that Benjamin Creme’s lectures are running throughout 2009. Why would we need more lectures? After we all see the ‘star’ won’t Maitreya be the main speaker or is the star going to run its show for another year before the appearance of Maitreya? I have been an amateur astronomer for 25 years. Stars are suns, they don’t move in orbital cycles. Would you care to enlighten me on a star that moves? Maybe it’s another object that has a projected orbit?

A. Lectures are given to inform new people of our information. That means about 6 billion people who still have not heard what is happening in our world. The ‘star’ has a limited period as a sign of Maitreya’s presence and first public interview. Stars, as you say, do not move. Nor, I think, do they change colour constantly and disappear at high speed. There are four “star-like luminaries” which are now seen by many people around the world. They are huge spacecraft from different planets of our solar system. Their presence among us is further proof of the reality of UFOs and intelligent and harmless life in our own solar system.


Q. (1) In what way can you recognise the ‘star’ sign and not get it mixed up with celestial bodies? (2) I know it is seen in the west. Does it move in any way? I’m looking for it in my vicinity but don’t think I have spotted it yet. Is there a chance it would make a wee cheeky appearance over Scotland anytime in the future?

A. (1) For a start, it is very bright, brighter than Venus, changes colour and moves. (2) I don’t think we have had reports from Scotland but we have from Canada and New Zealand where many ex-Scots live, as you know. I will see if I can do anything for a magnificent sighting over Glasgow, my dear old birthplace!


Q. When I was staying in a house in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, in March 2009, I noticed a handprint mark on my bedroom window. Back at my home in São Paulo, I realized that there were also some fingerprints on my own bathroom mirror. (1) Were these handprints manifested by Maitreya? (If yes, it’s becoming a frequent phenomenon in my house!) (2) Is this a sign that Maitreya’s appearance is near? (3) On 14 April, at 21.30, I was coming home in São Paulo, when I saw a strange star that was changing colours very quickly, and then disappeared. (3) Was it the ‘star’ and did anyone else realize it was there? (4) Also, on 6 April 2009, outside my home, I noticed an object in the distant sky outside my home. It was emitting a light at times and I remembered that some people who had seen the ‘star’ had asked it to become brighter. I decided to do the same: when I did it really became brighter even when the object was behind the clouds, and was brighter only at the times that I asked. It was a great moment and was like a confirmation. Was it the star?

A. (1) Yes, it is a Sign of His Presence. They are appearing in many parts of the world. (2) YES, very near. (3) Yes, the ‘star’ and many others saw it. (4) It was the ‘star’.


Q. I saw the photograph of the ‘star’ on your website, taken from New Zealand. If something unusual is spotted in our skies, it is normally all over radio talkback programmes and the media, immediately. Not a squeak so far!
If this ‘star’ has been seen from so many countries, it amazes me that astronomers haven’t been speaking out and discussing it, by now! The fact that they are not, seems illogical.
I have been searching in vain for comment from the local astronomy community. The deafening silence does not inspire confidence! I hope with all my heart that there is such a ‘star’ but for now I’m finding it hard to accept!

A. I agree. It is quite extraordinary, this media and professional silence. The ‘star’ is seen all over the world, sometimes even in broad daylight, yet the media and astronomers alike refuse to speak about it. It begins to look as though they are following instructions from somewhere.


Q. I have been reading about the ‘star’ sign on your website. I asked my uncle about the new star but he was unable to find anything more about it, even though he has some fairly advanced telescopes and photography equipment. He cannot find the star in the sky (he lives in Toronto, Canada). Is there any way you can release some astronomical information on this ‘star’ so we can get a better look at it? I know you already have some photographs on your website though they do not seem to contain enough context to determine where the ‘star’ is.

A. Look for a star-like brilliant light which changes colour, moves and sometimes just disappears. It is not a real astronomical ‘star’ but a spaceship.


Q. I saw what I thought was the ‘star’ about 8.45pm on 14 April 2009 when coming out of a Transmission Meditation session in Ladbroke Grove, London. It was in the western sky quite low down, very bright like Venus has been recently. I travelled by underground to my home, which took about an hour, and could still see it. Was it the ‘star’?

A. It was indeed the ‘star’.


'Star' sightings from around the globe

Added 11.9.2009

Dear Editor,
While I was on vacation at the beach in Pawleys Island, South Carolina, I felt inspired to go outside and check the night sky. It was 27 May 2009 around 9.45pm EST [Eastern Standard Time], a beautiful clear night, and the stars were too numerous to count. As I walked toward the ocean, I asked the Space Brothers if they were in the vicinity to please make visible the ‘star’ heralding Maitreya’s first interview on television. Within seconds of making my request, two stars of brilliant yellow/orange appeared like spotlights in the eastern sky directly in front of me. The stars, one larger than the other, were not perfectly round, and brilliant rays of light extended from each star in all directions. They were visible for about 30-60 seconds.
When they disappeared, I called my wife Ann to come outside. When she arrived, the stars reappeared with the same brilliance. After they disappeared once again, she called to her sisters to come outside. This time I looked to the southern sky, and the stars appeared again side-by-side but higher up. We watched the luminaries with joy and excitement. After the stars disappeared, we waited with great anticipation. The stars appeared again in the eastern sky for about 30 seconds. This time when they disappeared, we witnessed the most spectacular display of smaller white blinking stars for perhaps 10 minutes. It seemed as if there were a hundred blinking stars all around the constellation Orion. After the amazing display of blinking lights, one of the original yellow/orange stars appeared again in the eastern sky, then a second one, and a third, and finally a fourth, all side by side. Brilliant rays of golden light extended from each star and appeared for another 30-60 seconds. The four stars then disappeared. Were these stars heralding Maitreya’s first interview?
D. D., Marietta, Georgia, USA.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms these to be the four “luminaries”, giant spacecraft, heralding Maitreya’s emergence. See Share International May 2009.)

Dear Editor,
I awoke as if it was the morning (in very good shape) at 3am on Monday 30 March 2009. I felt drawn to the kitchen window and looked out at the sky. It was splendid! I saw a star which looked like a coloured sun, dancing. I felt merry and happy. I went to lie down but I couldn’t sleep again, although I usually sleep very well. Was that the ‘star’?
N. D., Marmoutier, France.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was the ‘star’.)

Dear Editor,
I often look at the stars over my village of Santiago de Mora. Some weeks ago, there was a very bright star in the north, not normally there. My friends also saw it over Valladolid, Murcia, Valencia and Alicante and confirmed to me they also saw it move.
Another night, at 10.30pm, talking with a neighbour, we saw passing above us a very bright light, at an altitude of about 300 meters, from west to east. It became sharper as it was above us and focused on us with a very potent light beam, not flickering. It moved very differently from a plane and there was no noise coming from it. I have seen it for five nights, almost at the same time, always passing in the same direction, but at different altitudes. Could you comment on these please?
B. G. R., Santiago de Mora, Spain.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that the “bright star” was indeed the ‘star’. The passing light was a spacecraft.)

Dear Editor,
On the evening of Saturday 9 May 2009 I was reading Share International magazine and thought: “I would like to see that star at last.” I went to my kitchen window (facing west) and saw the radiant sun. After two seconds I suddenly saw on the right side and in a horizontal line from the sun a round white ball with some pastel colours in it. And to my amazement I saw at the same distance another white ball that was dancing up and down. All in all, this whole phenomenon lasted about one hour (18.30 to 19.30pm).
I would very much like to know: (1) Those balls, what were they? (2) Were there indeed two or did this appear so because of the double-glazing window?
T. K., the Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that there was in fact one ball and it was the ‘star’.)

Dear Editor,
On 24 April 2009 in the west-southwest sky 25 miles east of NYC, sometime around 11pm, I noticed a star of unusual brightness. It seemed to be flickering from red, to blue to green to white. Is this the ‘star’ we have been expecting?
M. T., New York, USA.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was the ‘star’.)

Dear Editor,
On Thursday 18 June from 11.30pm until 1am we watched a star that was easily the brightest star in the western region of the sky. It became steadily brighter as we viewed it and it appeared to change colour (mainly red, orange) and even shape. It was seen at an angle of around 50 degrees in the sky.
We are wondering if this is ‘the’ star? Or have we just seen an ‘ordinary’ star?
C. P., Edinburgh, Scotland.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was the ‘star’.)

Dear Editor,
On Friday 19 June 2009 I woke suddenly at 3.30am and felt compelled to look out of my bedroom window. The sky, which was totally clear, was beginning to turn lighter. High up, and straight ahead, was a very bright twinkling star. All the other stars were no longer visible in the clear sky. Was it the ‘star’?
G. F., London, UK.

Dear Editor,
On 4 March 2009 my children called me excitedly to the front window of our Amsterdam home because they saw strange orange lights in the sky. I joined them and there were still a few serenely floating northwards. At the other side of the house we saw them again, now in formation: one in front, followed by two sets of two, and again one. Then they suddenly disappeared out of sight, one after the other.
Then another three lights went over and rushing to the back of the house we saw them again. It made us so happy and we wondered if they were UFOs?

(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that they were spacecraft from Mars.)

Dear Editor,
On the evening on Thursday 8 April 2009, around 11.30pm, my husband saw, from the bathroom window, a red ‘ball’ moving past in the sky: going very fast heading east.
The next evening, around 10.30 pm, two of us saw the red ball, this time low on the western horizon and stationary. Without our really noticing, it suddenly vanished. The object was too far away to take a picture with an ordinary camera. Was it a UFO?

Dear Editor,
On the 29 April 2009, at 4.45am, in the city of Bucaramanga, Colombia, I and some relatives of mine saw in the sky an extremely beautiful, big and bright star in the cloudless sky. It seemed not to be so far away as a normal star but inside the Earth’s atmosphere. Was it the ‘star’? Thank you very much.
M. R., Bogotá, Colombia.

Dear Editor,
At the beginning of May 2009, we were travelling north on the Alicante-Valencia highway, close to Denia. It was after sunset and we were surprised to see a very bright star (the brightest star one can see in the sky) that pulsated with different colours. It was to our left, in a westerly direction, above the mountains. It was strange because it was at the horizon line and one could see it very clearly although normally at that position one could not see regular stars clearly enough. Was it the ‘star’? Thank you.
J. R. M., Valencia, Spain.

Dear Editor,
I live in Barquisimeto, the capital city of Lara state, in Venezuela. In early January 2009 I saw a bright star (similar to Venus) in a deep blue-green sky for a few days, in the west. I would like you to confirm if it was the star, because  I believe it was.
S.F.C., Venezuela.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that yes, it was the ‘star’.)


Dear Editor,
On 26 December 2008 between 8.15 and 8.30pm I was walking the dog with my daughter. The sky was beautiful and there were many stars. My attention was drawn by a large red/orange light object that moved slowly forward in the direction where we were going. The object had the shape of a Christmas star and was coloured red and orange. Then it seemed to be above us and to move ahead of us and upwards in an oblique line at a somewhat higher speed. I was very impressed by this star.
(1) Was it related to Maitreya? (2) On 30 December about 7pm I saw an enormous star in the sky, bright and very overwhelming and moving very slowly. Was this star also related to Maitreya?
M.G., Mijdrecht, Holland.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that yes, both were the ‘star’ that heralds Maitreya’s first interview on television.)


Dear Editor,Star in Holland
At our group’s fair stand on 4 April 2009 a lady, Mihana Rose Rodin, told us she thinks she has seen the star on two or three occasions. The first time was about two weeks ago in the early evening. She felt strongly drawn to a star in the west that was about halfway up the sky. She initially thought it was a reflection of the sun. The colour seemed to change – at one stage it had a bluish tinge with rays beaming outward from it. On another occasion she came back five minutes later and it appeared to have moved. A friend of hers also commented that she had seen an unusual star in the sky around the same time. Could your Master please confirm whether this was the star?
M.S., New Zealand.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that yes, it was the ‘star’.)


Dear Editor,
As I was walking home on 9 April 2009, I thought I heard someone say “take a picture”, so I looked through my mobile camera to find the ‘star’ moving around the moon. I rushed home and all three of us, my son, daughter and I stood outside in our veranda, and watched the sky in awe through our mobile cameras. Attached is a photograph taken by my daughter. Was it the ‘star’?

Dear Editor,
On 1 January 2009 around 6.50pm, I left my sister’s house in Goirle to catch the bus home. As I was walking to the bus stop, I discovered a bright luminous spot in the dark sky.

When I took a good look at it, I noticed a rectangular kind of frame with a bright red light which seemed to be brighter towards the centre, as in a fireplace, with flames extending out ever more fiery from white to red. In its centre I saw a bright star with four rays, which shone as bright as a mountain crystal. Out of its centre a very bright, white light extended from the star in all directions. It seemed to me as if the light spread from a circular core with which the centre of the star was connected.

The rays of the star looked like elongated pyramids, but instead of being pointed at the top they were rounded as ellipses. It was a marvellous sight and I was looking at it thinking “Wow, how is this possible? This isn’t real.” But deep inside I knew it was real.
The star remained visible in the sky above me for at least 30 seconds, fairly high, but as if it was telling me to take a good look at every detail. It was beautiful beyond words and extremely intricate. It felt as if telepathically I was being told: “Know that we are here, that you are always completely protected and safe, and that nothing can happen. You are safe.”

Then I saw the star move across the sky from my left to my right before accelerating to a tremendous speed and vanishing from my sight. This all happened extremely rapidly while I saw it get ever smaller, as if it was being pulled back up by the universe. Finally, a dot of light was all there was left of it.
L.v.G., the Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that yes, it was Maitreya’s ‘star’.)


Dear Editor,
On 30 December 2008 at 10pm I was looking at the stars in Scherpenzeel (the Province of Gelderland), when a luminous, bright orange object drew my attention. It was like a star, but much stronger in intensity, and it continued to grow. The object flew slowly southwards, then suddenly turned slowly back and vanished. Within a few minutes it was visible again, coming back at enormous speed, much faster than an airplane, as if it was a fireball flashing through the air. I had my binoculars at hand and saw that it was a craft not known here on earth.
The same object was also visible on 1 January 2009 at midnight, but this time it came from another direction. Was it the star?
R.T., the Netherlands.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that yes, it was the ‘star’ of Maitreya’s emergence.)


Dear Editor,
On 31 March 2009 around 8.15pm a friend called me to my 5th floor balcony in London to see a huge, vivid, luminous, orange ball moving slowly towards us from the northwest horizon, and lit from within. My friend had just remarked that she wished the ‘star’ would approach closer. At first I thought it must be a helicopter but it was too quiet for that. It gradually approached a nearby tall building and then disappeared. We waited for it to reappear on the other side of the building but it did not.
Then the same thing happened again – once more it was on the skyline moving slowly towards us. We were both spellbound, it was so beautiful. Then we saw a flame burning a golden orange colour inside, reaching up to the top. Then once more it receded and disappeared.
Was it the ‘star’ we saw?

Dear Editor,
On 25 March 2009 at around 11.30am, at an estimated height of between 700 to 1,000 feet, I saw a large, very bright star-like object in the sky above Wellington harbour. The star appeared to be quite stationary, neither moving towards Wellington nor receding away from it, but appearing to bob gently up and down and side to side, as though riding on air currents. At the same time it was twinkling and sending out gentle beams of light. Although this region of airspace is near Wellington airport, even at night the landing lights of aircraft approaching have never appeared so large and lustrous as did the star at 11.30 in the morning on a bright, sunny day. I wonder if you could tell me whether this was the ‘star’ sign mentioned on your website?
L.V., Wellington, New Zealand.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms yes, indeed, it was the ‘star’ sign.)


Star reacts to thought of Japanese spectator

Dear Editor,
On 15 February 2009 I was thinking about the “bright star” and intuitively I aimed my cell phone camera toward the sun and took several photos one minute apart. Later, looking at the photos I saw a round object near the sun – either to the right, left, or above the sun. I was puzzled as to how the object could

Also, I took a photo of the sun as I stood in front of the Boston Museum in Nagoya. I could see a tiny point in the photo, near the window of a building a few meters away from me.  I said in my mind, “If you are a UFO, will you show yourself bigger?” In the next photos the object could be seen more clearly, showing itself in a different position in each shot.  (The object was confirmed to be a UFO but not the Star.) (Editor’s note: The UFOs are beginning to respond to thought requests from those unafraid and welcoming their presence.)

Next, I decided to take a photo of a sunset scene over the Kiso River in Gifu, believing the bright star would definitely appear near a beautiful sunset. I aimed my cell phone camera towards it. On the display screen I could see a tiny object moving. I made various requests in my mind: “You are too small to see. Will you make yourself more visible? Please come closer to me. Please go closer to Inuyama Castle”, etc. Each time, the object responded to my thought. I didn’t see it with my naked eye, but it showed on the camera. I am convinced that the bright star exists and our thoughts really do materialize.  [See photo in the March issue of Share International]

I told this story to another member of the group, Miyako Hirai. She also talked to the object when she took a photo of the sun, saying: “Please make yourself bigger” and the object showed itself much bigger.
M.S., Inuyama-shi, Gifu, Japan.

Since the first sightings of the ‘star’,  Paul Chandler from Slough, Berkshire, UK, has posted many videos of the ‘star’ on YouTube (paulchi69). He shares Share International.

Q. You have posted many videos on YouTube. Do you look for the ‘star’ every night?
A. Not every night, no. During February/March the ‘star’ was very bright. I was looking at it each night and filming it, and then it disappeared towards the end of March. I did not look at the sky very much after that, and did not see it in April. But I noticed it briefly on 16 and again on 24 May. Instead of being in the south it was more northerly. It changed position and I just started looking at it out of the window.

Q. Have you been filming it from your house?
A. Yes, out of the front bedroom window or back bedroom window of my house in Langley, Berkshire.

Q. Do you have a special video camera?
A. The camera I use is a Sony Handycam, with a 60x optical zoom. I also have a 2.6x teleconversion lens, which attaches onto the front of the zoom and magnifies it even more.

Q. Do you have it on a windowsill or a tripod?
A. I have it on a tripod. Even with a tripod, when you zoom in, sometimes it is hard to keep it still. You know, you think it would be quite easy, but it is not.

Q. When you see it, what is it that makes you think it is not just an ordinary star?
A. It is the changing of the colours: red, green, white, yellow, blue, orange and violet. It also seems to get closer and further away without my touching the zoom. The shape of it changes, along with the intensity and brightness as it gets bigger or smaller. It is basically a change in its position, shape, and colour.

Q. How long do you watch it for?
A. Between 3 and 10 minutes.

Q. We noticed from your YouTube videos that on 16 May you saw it at 10pm, when it went from south to north?
A. Yes, it was in the south-west position and then came straight overhead – it kept going quite fast, like an orb going through the sky. There was no noise or jetstream as with a plane. I got my video camera and ran downstairs to go outside. By the time I got there it had already gone over the house. It went from south to north in three minutes. It climbed high in the sky. If I had not seen it go over the house, I would not have known to look in the north-east for future sightings, so it was like I was guided to see it happen, because up until then I had always seen it in the south-west.

Q. Then you saw it again on 24 May?
A. The film from 24 May was done with a slightly different camera, a Canon Video Camera, quite an old camera. It was early morning. That was when I first noticed it on 24 May. I had fallen asleep in my chair and then something told me to look out of the window.

Q. Have you seen it more recently?
A. I kept looking out for it after 24 May but I think it was on 2 June in the early morning I saw it again. It was not very clear, it was hard to see, and also trying to get up at 4 o’clock in the morning to look at it is not easy, if you are a bit lazy like me! It was the only bright star in the sky at that time.

Q. What kind of reaction have you been having from other viewers?
A. Some have been positive, some have been negative, about 50-50 really.

Q. Have you been in touch with the media about it?
A. Yes, The Guardian, Daily Mail, The Mirror and The Sun by email, early in June. In my email I put the URL number for the YouTube links to my video footage and also to the Share International video of the ‘Star’, so that they could look at them easily. I did not get a reply except from The Guardian who said they may use it, but they required more detail, my name and address, contact number, etc. which I have sent them.
Since these sightings I have been looking out every morning in the north-east from about 4.15am, but it has been too cloudy.


More letters from around the globe

Dear Editor,
I often look up at the sky with happy expectation since seeing the bright star, the herald of the emergence of Maitreya.

It was around 6.40pm on 5 March 2009, when my mother and I first saw a dim white round light in the cloudy western sky; there were no other stars to be seen. Incredibly, the dim white round light was in the sky near the moon, impossible if it was really a normal star. Its shape was elliptical, and it was moving slowly at a snail’s pace in one direction then at the next moment in another direction. It repeated such movements two or three times. I phoned my sister and her daughter, who live nearby, and they looked at the sky from their first floor terrace. According to my sister, the bright orange-and-yellow star was moving from the southwest low in the sky to the northwest faster than the speed of an airplane, flashing on and off, changing its colour into blue-and-white with irregular sharp flashes before it was obstructed by buildings. After that, I could barely find the dim white round ball near the moon before it faded away.

At 11pm on 6 March I again found the star in the clear sky. On first sight it looked like a blue normal star, but it began blinking in regular rhythm like the lamps of an airplane. It was still in the same place and so it could not have been an airplane. And then it stopped blinking.

At 10pm on 7 March, there were no stars to be seen because of cloud. I was outside my friend’s house, where we watched a very tiny white flash in the northwest low in the sky. Then again, we saw a very tiny flash a little way from the first place.

We felt the Space Brothers knew we were watching them. They made us feel happy. We think they must have warm hearts and much sense of humour.

Dear Editor,
On the 11 and 12 February 2009, between 9.30 and 10.15pm, my daugher and I saw a very big, bright light in the sky, looking West. Afterwards the light disappeared.

On the 11th at a certain moment, the light shrank and became very small. Afterwards it went back to its initial size and emitted red and blue flashes. The light didn’t move from its original place.

Was this the star that heralds Maitreya’s public emergence?

Dear Editor,
I have been seeing in the sky at night a single light that shines more than any other and it has been alone in the sky for the last few days. The light is seen in the West.

Last night, Saturday 7 March 2009, we went to a birthday party and we were heading to Albalat del Torongers town. When we were driving there, we saw the light on our left, in a northwest direction, always alone in the sky, which kept our attention due to its brightness – it was more intense than any other star and seemed to be vibrating. We watched it till we arrived and then it disappeared. Was it the star heralding Maitreya’s public emergence?
A.B., Puzol, Valencia, Spain.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was the Star.)

Dear Editor,
On the 23 February 2009, around 8.30pm, looking at the sky in a westerly direction, I saw a very bright light. I have been seeing it since Christmas and it appears each day at a different time. Is this bright light the star you have spoken about?
B.G., Santiago de Mora, Albacete, Spain.
(Benjamin Creme’s Master confirms that it was the Star.)

Dear Editor,
On Monday 2 March 2009 I saw an unusual star in Buenos Aires. It looked as if had a purple nucleus, surrounded by a very bright halo. It emitted radial flashes, through multiple filaments. The star moved away quickly, perhaps two degrees, and then suddenly lost its brightness and disappeared. This happened after I looked up into the sky for quite a long time. It appeared suddenly and stayed visible for about 10 to 12 seconds. It was much brighter than Venus and could be seen in daylight. It was a marvellous sight! Was it the star that heralds Maitreya’s first appearance?
J.O.G., Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Star in South Africa

Dear Editor,
On the evening of Saturday 3 January 2009 we had a bad electrical storm and then the rain came in buckets. We turned off the TV and decided to read in bed. My daughter Pat went upstairs to her room and was looking out of her landing window when things started to happen. She called for me to go up the stairs quickly, which I did, and there I saw the clouds had parted and a large area of jet black sky showing, and getting bigger every second. To the south west of our house there was an enormous star all by itself, no others near, and streams of light rays shooting out from it in all directions. I could hardly believe my eyes.

About 10 minutes later, the rolling clouds coming towards us were ablaze with light, as if the sun was shining again, but no, the first quarter of the new moon appeared to the far right of the heavens from where the star was. Then the moon disappeared as the clouds thickened close to us and going overhead. The star remained and I was obliged to go downstairs again after another 20 minutes as I was feeling very dizzy and did not want to fall.

My daughter continued watching this wonderful scene until the clouds covered the heavens again. All I could think was, is this the sign of Lord Maitreya to greet us for the New Year and His imminent emergence? I hope so. We have waited for him for such a long time.
B.I., Howick, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa.

12 January 2009: "Is it a satellite or just bright Venus? "Is there an expert out there who can please clarify something! Is it a satellite that is shining so brightly every evening above us or is it Venus as someone is suggesting. There is a big debate going on amongst me and my friends and clarification is needed...."

27 January 2009: "I hope I'm not the only one who has witnessed the two strange lights over Doha yesterday [26 January]. It was around 9.30 pm when I was standing in front of my house at Matar Kadeem (Old Airport). I looked up randomly and saw a bright flame in the sky. It was appearing to be the size of a tennis ball with very bright flames like light flickering almost about 2 miles high. It was moving at a very slow pace and had it not been for the height at which it was, I would have ignored it as a balloon. "All of us were amazed and were joined by a lot of other onlookers. All of us were guessing as to what it could be. The light kept moving from South to North for about 10 mins. It was moving in a straight line and then started wobbling at its place. After about 3-4 more mins, it vanished into the clouds. This was not it. After about another 5 mins a similar light appeared in the South horizon and followed a similar pattern. Did anyone on Qatar Living notice it? What could it be?" (Source: Blogger "LifeIsBeautiful",

HomeShare International News Release no. 89, 3 April 2009

For over 30 years author,lecturer and artist Benjamin Creme has been preparing the way for the emergence of Maitreya the World Teacher.

On 12 December 2008 Share International distributed a news release announcing that in the very near future a large, bright Star would appear in the sky visible throughout the world, night and day. The Star heralds the imminent emergence of Maitreya, who will be giving His first interview on a major US television programme very soon. Since January 2009 hundreds of sightings of the Star have been reported worldwide. Videos of the Star posted on YouTube are creating much debate and Share International is receiving more and more photographs showing the Star in a variety of stunning colours and shapes.

In his latest article
, Benjamin Creme’s Master reiterates the significance of the Star and seeks to stimulate public discussion about its meaning and purpose.

The restoration of the world

From almost every point of view the situation facing men everywhere grows daily more painful. The economic chaos resulting from years of unlicensed greed and heartless competition lays waste the honest toil and aspiration of countless millions. On the whole, the men of money go blithely on, their treasure intact, while men and women in every country face joblessness, poverty and fear. More accurate readings of climatic changes show men how close this planet is to irreversible calamity, and alarm bells sound loudly on many political fronts, raising to new levels the factor of stress.

How much more of this tension can humanity bear? For how long will men accept, mildly, their fate? Desperate men do desperate deeds and already in their minds, if not yet in their actions, many contemplate revolution.


Behind the scenes, Maitreya watches carefully these happenings, and gives succour wherever the Law allows. He waits, patiently, for the build-up of response to the sign of His Emergence, the “star-like luminary of brilliant power” on which many now gaze in wonder and even love.

What is desired is some measure of public debate about the significance or meaning of the Star, thus signifying the emergence of Maitreya, the World Teacher. The greater and more public the discussion, the greater does it prepare the way for Maitreya’s entry. Soon there will be no gainsaying. Very soon, Venus will move beyond the sight of men and so leave the platform of the heavens open to the Star. Then there will be no doubt that the Star is there for all to see.

If sufficient discussion can be fostered on the various media and internet it will not be long until men see and hear Maitreya speak. He will not be so called, that men can judge His ideas rather than His status.


As the economic crisis deepens, a singular reaction is appearing in many countries: alongside the fear, bravado and growing despair is a new understanding of the reasons for the crash -- the greed and competitive spirit at the centre of our systems and, therefore, the need for sharing. Of themselves, many are awakening to this basic truth and see sharing as the answer to injustice and war. Thus are many ready for Maitreya’s Call. This realization will grow as the crisis bites deeper and deeper into the shaky fabric of the outworn forms and structures that no longer work, can never be made to work for long.

When Maitreya speaks, He will show that this is so, that the world is ready for the adoption of new and better forms, based on the true needs of the peoples everywhere. His is the task to focus and strengthen this growing realization of the oneness and unity of men, of their mutual dependence and awakening divinity. Thus will Maitreya and humanity work together for the restoration of this world.

For over 30 years author,lecturer and artist Benjamin Creme has been preparing the way for the emergence of Maitreya the World Teacher.

On 12 December 2008 Share International distributed a news release announcing that in the very near future a large, bright star will appear Photograph of the star taken in Oslo, Norway, on 27 January 2009 at 8 pm. Oslo in the sky visible throughout the world, night and day. Around a week later Maitreya will give his first interview on major US television.

Since early January 2009 sightings of the star have been reported from Norway, South Africa, the United States, Dubai and Qatar. More and more sightings are now expected. Reports have already appeared in Norwegian newspapers.

A new article by Benjamin Creme’s Master, who is based in the Himalayas, reveals how close we are to witnessing this sign and the historic events which will follow. Maitreya’s first interview will lead to further and more frequent interviews in the USA, Japan and other countries.

Maitreya’s first interview

In the very near future, people everywhere will have the opportunity to witness an extraordinary and significant sign, the like of which has been manifested only once before, at the birth of Jesus. Then, according to Christian teaching, a star appeared in the heavens and led three wise men from the East to the birthplace of Jesus. Soon, once again, a star-like luminary of brilliant power will be seen around the world. What does this mean? How is it possible?

The answer lies in the fact that this mysterious event is a sign, and heralds the beginning of Maitreya’s open mission. Soon after the sign appears in our skies, Maitreya will give His first media interview on American television.

On that open, public occasion, still unannounced as Maitreya, the World Teacher will present His views on the economic and financial chaos which now grips the world. He will explain its origins and final outcome, and present, to some extent, His recipe for amelioration of the present heavy burden on the poor of the world. Thus He will prepare the way for a more detailed and specific announcement of His ideas.

How will viewers respond? They will not know His background or status.Will they listen to and consider His words? It is too soon to know exactly but the following may be said: never before will they have seen or heard Maitreya speak. Nor, while listening, will they have experienced His unique energy, heart to heart. Also, this is a unique time in history with whole nations stunned and apprehensive for the future. Therefore it can be assumed that many who hear His words will be open and eager to hear more. It is not for nothing that Maitreya has waited patiently for this moment to enter the public world; America, for one, would not have responded sooner. Now, for the first time in many years, a new Administration has to cope with financial chaos, unemployment and social unrest on a massive scale. The moment of truth for America and the world has arrived.

Not alone in America but worldwide, people are awakening to the need for and the possibility of change. The politicians and economists call the present situation a ‘downturn’ and a ‘recession’. In truth,we are witnessing the last stumbling steps of the old order. Millions are becoming aware that unbridled competition and greed are not the safest path for men, that such materialistic doctrines create a ‘slippery slope’ for the unwary, and, eventually, the international crisis we have today.

Of course, many people of burgeoning wealth stand clear of the present loss of confidence in the ways which have made them rich, and think it only ‘a matter of time’ until we are back on course and thriving again.

Will they heed Maitreya and recognize the sense of His argument? Lost in their arrogance and self-esteem, possibly not. However, many are less sanguine about a return to the status quo. Many have suffered painful losses and have lost faith in the old methods. The peoples of the nations are ripe and ready for change. They call out for change and a more meaningful life. Maitreya will remind men of the essentials without which there is no future for man: Justice and Peace. And the only way to both is through sharing.

HomeShare International News Release no. 87, 11 December 2008 -Christmas Miracle

For years the world has been filled with miracles of all kinds. In April 1995 Time magazine devoted an eight-page spread to its cover story on miracles, and concluded:"People are hungry for signs."

Look now for the biggest miracle of all. In the very near future a large, bright star will appear in the sky visible to all throughout the world – night and day.

Unbelievable? Fantasy? No, a simple fact. Around a week later Maitreya, the World Teacher for all humanity, will begin His open emergence and – though not yet using the name Maitreya – will be interviewed on major US television.

In 1988 CNN and other media reported on Maitreya’s miraculous
appearance to 6,000 people in Nairobi, Kenya, on Saturday 11 June. A
week before the event a remarkable sign occurred: “On Saturday 4 June a big, bright star was sighted, unusually brighter than ordinary stars,” reported Kenya Times editor Job Mutungi.

Maitreya’s miraculous appearance to 6,000 people in Nairobi, Kenya, on 11 June 1988

For over 30 years artist, author and lecturer Benjamin Creme has been preparing the way for the biggest event in history – the emergence of Maitreya and His group, the Masters of Wisdom. In May 1982 Creme revealed at a packed press conference in Los Angeles that Maitreya had been living in the Asian community of London since 19 July 1977.

Awaited by all faiths under different names, Maitreya is the Christ to
Christians, the Imam Mahdi to Muslims, Krishna to Hindus, the Messiah to Jews, and Maitreya Buddha to Buddhists. He is the World Teacher for all, religious or not, an educator in the broadest sense.

As a modern man concerned with today’s problems, Maitreya works behind the scenes of our changing world. The outpouring of His extraordinary energy has been the stimulus for dramatic developments on many fronts: the ending of the cold war; the break-up of the Soviet Union; the reunification of Germany; the ending of apartheid in South Africa; the growing power of the people’s voice, leading to demands for freedom and justice; and the worldwide focus on preserving the environment.

Maitreya’s message can be summarized as “share and save the world”. He will seek to inspire humanity to see itself as one family, and to create world peace through sharing, economic justice and global co-operation.

With Maitreya and His group working openly in the world, humanity is assured not only of survival but of the creation of a brilliant new civilization.
