Between September 1977 and June 1982, British
author and lecturer Benjamin Creme received a series of 140 messages from Maitreya, the World
Teacher. These were given during Creme's public lectures in London via a process of mental
overshadowing or spiritual telepathy, which is not related to mediumship or channelling.
Through these communications Maitreya suggests the actions that
must be taken for the needed economic and social changes to take place. He encourages humanity
to rebuild the world based upon the principles of brotherhood, sharing, and love. He also
gives hints on how to recognize him and urges people to make known the fact of his presence.
