The Great Invocation
From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men,
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men,
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men -
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan

The New World Prayer
The new world prayer was given by Maitreya in July 1988 is
really an affirmation with an invocative effect, and will be a
powerful tool in the recognition by us that man and God are one,
that there is no separation. By affirming that I am the creator
of the universe I can come into consciousness (eventually) that I
am God, the true reality.
I am the creator of the
I am the father and mother of
Everything came from me.
Everything shall return to me.
Mind, spirit and body are my
For the Self to realize in them
My supreme Being and Becoming
The Lord Maitreya
Take your brother's need as the measure for your action, and solve the problems of the world. There is no other course.
Share and save the world.
All in time will be renewed.
All in time will be returned to light.
No glamour, no illusion can long hold the man who has set himself the task of treading the razor-edged Path which leads, through the wilderness, through the thick-set forest, through the deep waters of sorrow and distress, through the valley of sacrifice and over the mountains of vision to the gate of Deliverance.
He may travel sometimes in the dark (and illusion of darkness is very real ); he may travel sometimes in a light so dazzling and bewildering that he can scarcely see the way ahead; he may know what it is to falter on the Path, and to drop under the fatigue of service and of strife; he may be temporarily side-tracked and wander down the by-paths of ambition, of self-interest and material enchantment, but the lapse will be but brief.
Nothing in heaven or hell, on earth or elsewhere can prevent the progress of the man who has awakened to the illusion, who has glimpsed the reality beyond the glamour of the astral plane, and who has heard, even if only once, the clarion call of his own soul.

A potent method of service
by Benjamin Creme
An in-depth discussion of this potent means of world service and personal spiritual growth
for experienced and new meditators. (1314 words)
The following article was transcribed
from Benjamin Creme's talks on Transmission Meditation given in Nagoya and Osaka, Japan,
during his lecture tour in March 1989. For further detailed information read the book
TRANSMISSION - A MEDITATION FOR THE NEW AGE
by Benjamin Creme.
Meditation is, depending on the meditation, a more or less scientific means of contacting
the soul, and of eventually becoming at- one with the soul. That is the basic purpose of
meditation of any kind.
Transmission Meditation is a way of serving the world. Unlike many other forms of
meditation, it attracts to it only those people who have a desire to serve. This desire to
serve manifests itself in an individual only when that person has made some degree of
contact with his or her own soul. This is because it is the soul which desires to serve.
The nature of the soul is to serve.
The first response to soul contact (whether it is followed up or not) is a desire to serve
the world in some way. Transmission Meditation provides a simple, easy form of very potent
service to the world which at the same time is an extremely potent, fast method of
personal growth. This personal, evolutionary result is a side effect of the Transmission
The Masters have at their disposal tremendous spiritual energies. A major part of the
Masters' work is to distribute these energies in the world to produce the effects, the
fulfilment of the Plan of Evolution which They know to be envisaged for this planet. The
Masters are the custodians of the Plan and the custodians of the energies which bring
about the fulfilment of the Plan. Many of these energies are cosmic in source and if they
were released directly into the world they would be too high, and would simply bounce off
the mass of humanity.
Transmission Meditation groups act as sub-stations. The Masters send these spiritual
energies through the chakras of the individuals in the groups. This automatically
transforms the energies, making them more accessible, more usable by humanity. The Masters
then direct the energies into the world wherever they are needed.
There are several hundreds of transmission groups, all over the world, and they meet
regularly at a particular time and day, whatever is suitable for the individual group.
This can be once, twice or three times a week. The groups can be anything from three
people upwards. Three people form a triangle; that is the basic group.
The group meets and sounds together, aloud, the Great Invocation, which has been given to
humanity for this purpose. This Invocation was released to the world in 1945 by Maitreya
to give us a technique for invoking the energies which would transform the world and
prepare for His coming. By the sounding of this great mantram with the attention focused
on the ajna centre (between the eyebrows), a conduit is formed between the group and the
Hierarchy of Masters. Through that conduit the Masters send their energies.
These spiritual forces are precisely the energies which are transforming the world right
now. Maitreya fills the world with the energy of equilibrium, for example, and national
leaders find that they can work together, can compromise, can reach some kind of
consensus, almost overnight. Suddenly, nations who have been enemies for centuries,
perhaps, find that they can talk together round a table, and peacefully work out a
solution. They are simply responding correctly to the energies which the Hierarchy of
Masters are sending out into the world.
That is the service which the transmission groups perform for the world. It allows you to
move away from simple contact with your own soul to a working relationship with the
Kingdom of Souls, the Spiritual Hierarchy of Masters.
It is not possible to work in this way, to have the energies sent through the chakras,
without the chakras themselves being stimulated, galvanized and transformed. The Masters
measure the point in evolution of any individual disciple by the quality of light
emanating from the chakras. People talk about auras: brilliant auras and rather dull
auras, wide auras and narrow auras. The auras are really the synthesis of all the energies
emanating through into -- and out of -- the chakras up the spine. The more active, the
more stimulated these chakras are, the greater the radiation, the wider and more brilliant
the aura. This designates the degree of the disciple.
In Transmission Meditation, your chakras are stimulated in a way that would be altogether
impossible otherwise. In one year of consistent, intensive Transmission Meditation, you
can make the same kind of advance as in 10 or 15 years of personal meditation. It is a
hothouse, a forcing process. For this reason, it is not for everyone. Only those who wish
to serve the world in some way would be bothered to do Transmission Meditation, because
nothing seems to be happening during the meditation. You may or may not be aware of the
energies; some feel the energies very clearly and powerfully, some do not feel them at
all. This has little to do with your point of advancement, but, in the main, with your
particular type of physical body.
This work, however, leads to very profound changes in the individual. Most people, within
six months or a year of starting Transmission Meditation, realize the changes in
themselves, recognize that they are becoming a different, a better person. People find
that they can experience, and demonstrate, love more easily. They find that their minds
are more stimulated and creative. They may find that they have more discipline, more
determination, more consistency in their approach to work. People see their group members
become more radiant, softer, more loving -- in a word, more spiritual.
A large number of people receive healing, spontaneously, during the transmissions. The
technique involved is very simple and is applicable to anyone above the age of 12.
Transmission Meditation does not interfere with any other form of meditation which you
might do. On the contrary, it can only potentize, make more valuable, any other
It is absolutely safe because it is in the hands of the Masters, the Master scientists of
the planet. It is potent, safe and scientific because the real work, the major work, is
done for you by the Masters themselves. All that you are asked to do in a Transmission
Meditation is to hold your attention at the ajna centre between the eyebrows. That is all.
You will find, however, that your attention will wander from this centre. When you realize
that this has happened, you sound, inwardly, the mantram OM, or think OM, and your
attention will come back automatically to the ajna centre. Holding the attention at the
ajna centre produces an alignment between the physical brain and the soul. The energies
are sent from the level at which the Masters habitually work: the soul level (the buddhic
level, to be precise). While that alignment is held, the transmission will take place.
I can assure you that there is no more potent service that you can give so easily, with
such little expenditure of effort, to the world. Nor will you find a technique of personal
growth so potent, so far- reaching, for such little effort. All the Masters, perfect as
they are, spend 24 hours a day in transmitting their energies. There is no being in cosmos
not involved in transmitting energy from levels above to levels below Them. We live in an
energetic universe. That energy, from however high a level, is being transmitted, stepped
down, received; transmitted, stepped down, and received, throughout cosmos.
If you find that Transmission Meditation is for you, then you have a mode of service which
will last until the end of your life and through all future lives.
