About every 2,150 years, the Earth and humanity enter a new cosmic cycle. The time of transition from one cycle, or age, to the next is often chaotic, as it is today.
New structures and concepts are called for, and to meet these changing needs, the spiritual custodians of human evolution send one of their great sages into the world to bring the new teachings for the time.
According to British author and esotericist Benjamin Creme, the Teacher for the incoming cycle has already arrived, and is gradually making his presence known. His name is Maitreya, and he has come with other members of his group, known as the Masters of Wisdom, to help us solve our most critical global problems.
The World Teacher is not a religious leader, but an educator in the broadest sense. He has not come to create followers, but is here to inspire us to create a new era based on sharing and justice. He will advise us, therefore, to provide decent housing, nutritious food, health care, and education for every person - and guarantee these basic necessities as birthrights. These are his first priorities.
With his first appearance on a major American television program in December 2009, Maitreya's open mission in the world has begun.
