In this interview (circa 1991) Remastered and edited 2/2023, Bruce Stephen Holms, host of Timeless Voyager Radio gives Benjamin Creme a platform that he is rarely offered by media in order to explain that the Christ is actually already here. He said that he was first contacted telepathically by his Master in January 1959, when Creme was asked to make tape recordings of his messages.
Creme first began to speak publicly of his mission on 30 May 1975, at the Friends Meeting House on Euston Road in London, England. His central message announced the emergence of a group of Enlightened spiritual teachers who could guide humanity forward into the new Aquarian Age of peace and brotherhood based on the principles of love and sharing.
At the head of this group would be a great Avatar, Maitreya, the World Teacher, expected by all the major religions as their "Awaited One": the Christ to the Christians, the Imam Mahdi to the Muslims, the Messiah for Jews, and the 5th Buddha (Maitreya) for Buddhists.
Benjamin Creme asserted that the second coming, prophesied by many religions, would come in the form of Maitreya, the World Teacher. Maitreya is the name Buddhists use for the future Buddha, but Creme claimed that Maitreya is the teacher that all religions point towards and hope for. Other names for him, according to Creme, are the Christ, the Imam Mahdi, Krishna, and the Messiah. Creme claimed Maitreya is the "Avatar for the Aquarian Age", is omniscient and omnipresent, and has lived in London since 19 July 1977.
