Benjamin Creme
(Share International Foundation)

Benjamin Creme, founder of Share International, was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1922. At an early age he was recognized as an accomplished artist (modern style). He also became quite studious in the pursuit of spiritual insights through esoteric philosophy, especially the teachings of Helena Blavatsky (co-founder of the Theosophical Society) and more recently, Alice Bailey. Through their influence, Benjamin Creme came to believe in a hierarchy of Ascended Masters who are the spiritual custodians of this planet. He claims that in 1959 one of these Masters of Wisdom contacted him-revealing that about twenty years later, Maitreya, the long awaited World Teacher for this age, would manifest himself in the earth. Benjamin Creme was also informed that he would be instrumental in this planetary event if he accepted the responsibility.

In 1972 he began preparing for this task, and eventually began lecturing all over the world. His primary message has always been the declaration of the arrival of Maitreya. He insists Maitreya is the fulfillment of the messianic hope found in many religions. According to Benjamin Creme's worldview, Maitreya is the fulfillment of the Christian expecta-tion of the coming of Christ, the Jewish longing for Messiah, the Muslim hope for the Imam Madhi, the Hindu's longing for the next Avatar named Kalki and the Buddhist anticipation of Maitreya Buddha. All these religious projections for the future, he claims, will be realized in one individual. On his website (, Benjamin Creme lists numerous incidents worldwide that he claims were supernatural manifestations of Maitreya, usually to large groups of people. He has written a number of books and pamphlets on this subject.
