Avatar: The term “Avatar” is a Sanskrit term meaning “descent.” It is used in Hinduism to describe the incarnation of a Hindu deity, usually the god Vishnu, who visits earth to help humanity at a crisis point. Vishnu has allegedly appeared nine times in various guises (including as the Buddha) throughout history, and will come again. However, the term “avatar” has migrated into popular alternative spiritualities and usually describes a spiritually advanced being that comes to earth to guide people, sometimes without the need for birth; the Avatar merely incarnates at will as an adult. (“Avatar” is also used to designate a computerized personal image used for online identification, no doubt deriving from the original meaning of incarnation). The “Avatar” cartoon features a child Avatar named Aang.
Benjamin Creme is an artist, author, self proclaimed esotericist, and owner of Share International magazine (his regular newsletter and website).
He asserts that the second coming prophesied by many religions will come in the form of “Maitreya”. Maitreya is the name Buddhists use for the future Buddha, but Creme claims 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 says Maitreya is the “Avatar for the Aquarian Age” and is currently living in London.
According to Benjamin Creme, The Ascended Masters live in a dimension that hovers over the Gobi Desert (Shamballa), are led by Sanat Kumara, which Theosophist Dane Rudyar referred to as “King Satan.” The world has been continually infiltrated by Theosophists, with what they believe to be consciousness-altering “light” in order to prepare us for the unity necessary to receive Sanat Kumara as our world leader and true spiritual identity. The next expected avatar who will bridge the gap between western and eastern mysticism will supposedly be Maitreya, who is one of the higher Kumaras, who will usher in the wide reception of Sanat Kumara.
Creme says that the aspect of God that we aspire to is the Logos of our planet, who is embodied for us as Sanat Kumara, on Shamballa. He is our “Father ….In the coming age many, many people will see God as Sanat Kumara and take the third initiation ….When you take the third initiation you see God, as Sanat Kumara, the Lord of the world, who is a real physical being in etheric matter on Shamballa.” (Reappearance of Christ and The Masters of Wisdom, p. 135)
Creme talks about Maitreya being the 1st and 2nd initiations who “prepares the way” for this “Lord of the World” – “Sanat Kumara”, the third initiation. David Spangler another Blavatsky/Bailey disciple makes no bones about the identity of this initiator. He calls this the “Luciferic Initiation.”
The true light of Lucifer cannot be seen through sorrow, through darkness, through reflection. The true light of this great being can only be recognized when one’s own eyes can see with the light of the Christ, the light of the inner sun. Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into the New Age, which is the age of man’s wholeness, each of us is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation, the particular doorway through which the individual must pass if he is to come fully into the presence of his light and his wholeness.
Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it, then he is free and we are free, that is the Luciferic Initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.

Freemasons believe that using the number 666 will hasten Lucifer’s coming and the new age. Lucis Trust, the UN’s publishing company, was created in 1920 by Alice Bailey, a Luciferian, and her husband, Foster Bailey, author of The Spirit of Masonry. The organization was originally called the “Lucifer Publishing Company”, because Bailey worshiped Lucifer, the Devil, Diablos, The Slanderer. Lucis Trust has “consultative status” at the UN. Its goal is to initiate “The Externalization of the Heirarchy“.
In her book, The Externalization of the Heirarchy, Bailey announced that 1934 marked the beginning of ”the organizing of the men and women… group work of a New Order [with] progress defined by service … the work of the Brotherhood … the Forces of Light. … Out of the spoliation of all existing culture and civilization, the New World Order must be built.”
The Lucis Trust is the Publishing House which prints and disseminates United Nations material. It is a devastating indictment of the New Age and Pagan nature of the UN. Lucis Trust was established in 1922 as Lucifer Trust by Alice Bailey as the publishing company to disseminate the books of Bailey and Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society. The title page of Alice Bailey’s book, ‘Initiation, Human and Solar’ was originally printed in 1922, and clearly shows the publishing house as ‘Lucifer Publishing CoIn 1923. Bailey changed the name to Lucis Trust, because Lucifer Trust revealed the true nature of the New Age Movement too clearly. (Constance Cumbey, The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow, p. 49). A quick trip to any New Age bookstore will reveal that many of the hard-core New Age books are published by Lucis Trust.
At one time, the Lucis Trust office in New York was located at 666 United Nations Plaza and is a member of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations under a slick program called “World Goodwill”. In an Alice Bailey book called “Education for a New Age”; she suggests that in the new age “World Citizenship should be the goal of the enlightened, with a world federation and a world brain.” In other words – a One World Government New World Order.
