People of earth are very fortunate and blessed to have two Christs living among them. The two are Sri Satya Sai Baba and Lord Maitreya. Both Satya Sai Baba and Maitreya are leaders in the Spiritual Kingdom (Kingdom of God), the kingdom above human kingdom. They both embody Christ Consciousness, Sai Baba at cosmic level and Maitreya at planetary level. They both are 'Kalki Avatar's according to Hindu religious tradition. They have different roles. Sai Baba is a visitor from another far advanced solar system. He has come to earth at the invitation of the Lord of the World, Sanath Kumara. He has had two incarnations on earth. His first incarnation was as Sai Baba of Shridi and his last incarnation was as Satya Sai Baba. We will see him again in 10 to 15 years from now as Prema Sai Baba.
Maitreya is from earth and he has had all his incarnations on earth. He has lived on earth for millions of years. He will be living on earth and teaching people as Christ and World Teacher and Head of the Spiritual Kingdom for another 2500 years, the whole of the Age of Aquarius. We are now at the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. Buddha as Embodiment of Wisdom previously held this position of World Teacher and Head of the Spiritual Kingdom for 2500 years, which ended over 2000 years ago. Then he went to Shamballa to join the Council of Ministers of Lord of the World. Buddha acts as the divine intermediary between the Highest Spiritual Centre on earth, the Shamballa and the Spiritual Hierarchy (The Kingdom of God). Buddha visits earth in a valley in the Himalayas every year on the May full moon day (Vesak) and is met by the three Leaders of the Spiritual Kingdom, The Christ, Manu and the Lord of Civilisation and their disciples.
Both Sai Baba and Maitreya are divine and have all the powers of 'God'. But the God at the moment is Sanath Kumara, Lord of the World. Jesus referred him to as ‘My Father in Heaven’. He lives in Shamballa in the sky of the Gobi Desert in China. Jesus referred to Shamballa as ‘My Fathers House’. Maitreya, the Christ may also go there after completing his term of another 2500 years. Maitreya manifested himself for the first time through Lord Krishna 5000 years ago and again he manifested through his disciple Jesus 2000 years ago in Palestine. This is normal way how the World Teacher has been manifesting up to now. Buddha manifested himself through his disciple Prince Siddhartha Gautama 2500 years ago and he was known as Gautama Buddha. Maitreya this time has come himself instead of manifesting through a disciple. This is the first time the Head of the Spiritual Kingdom, the World Teacher is walking openly among men. This is because Humanity is now advanced enough to be taught directly by Christ himself instead of one of his disciples. This is called the Externalisation (the physical appearnce on earth) of the Hierarchy or the members of spiritual kingdom (the Kingdom of Souls or God), the Masters of Wisdom living openly on earth and teaching and advising humanity.
Maitreya has acted as the World Teacher for the Age of Pisces, which has just ended and he will continue as the World Teacher the Age of Aquarius, which is just beginning. This is the first time one person is acting as the World Teacher for two successive Ages. Buddha was the World Teacher for the Age of Aries. These Ages are created by the movement of our sun around the centre of our Universe, which takes about 25,000 years. During these 25,000 years our solar system comes into alignment with the 12 constellations of the Zodiac and is receiving the energies of these constellations, which gives the each successive civilisation certain qualities depending on the constellation. This movement of our Sun in relation to the constellations of the Zodiac is backward where as the movement of our sun through the year when viewed from earth caused by the rotation of our earth round the sun is forward, which gives the people born on a particular month their Sun Sign.
Sai Baba and Maitreya's roles are to teach people how to achieve self-realisation or spiritual growth. Sai Baba is not the Creator of the Universe. A being that is at the centre of our galaxy ‘Milky Way’ and controls 200 billion solar systems of the Milky Way created our galaxy. We have no idea as to who he is and he is referred to as 'about whom naught may be said' because we don't know anything about him. We will soon see Maitreya publicly. He has been giving TV interviews in US, Mexico, Brazil, Russia, China and many other countries. In these interviews he is not introduced as Maitreya or as Christ so people may not always recognise him. This is to help people to listen to what he has to say without any preconceived ideas as to who he is so that they can judge him by what he says or the ideas he presents or his teachings and not by the titles he holds. If people recognise him they are advised not to tell others as to who he is so that people are not influenced by his titles.
