A1 – After
Maitreya received the name Maitreya, he started receiving his
revelations from 1977 to 1982. He wrote them down and
published them in 1982.
A2 – Maitreya
started the Mission in 1977. He has been teaching this Message
since 1982. We have
in all the continents of the earth and many people are aware of our
presence on earth.
A3 – The goal of
the life, according to our teachings, is "To Be(come) Divine."
The fastest way to accomplish this is to follow the Eternal Divine
Path (EDP). The EDP is the five steps in The Greatest Sign.
Greatest Sign (GS) is the visual manifestation
of our teachings. It is through the GS and EDP that one
can create COLs. COLs are the base of the Kingdom Of Heaven on
Earth. It is the path to salvation of humanity, physically,
mentally, spiritually, individually and collectively.
A4 – In reality
there is no one who is not in the Mission. Therefore it is
open to everyone who is sincere and realizes the beauty of our
A5 - The only
requirement to join the Mission of Maitreya is to acknowledge that
The Goal of the Life is to Be(come) Divine (Haree Om Shrii Hung),
that Divinity (God) is Everything (Om Nam Kevalam). This
mantra is our universal mantra that is called the HOSH mantra.
Anyone can give it to anyone else to meditate on.
After this preliminary acknowledgement, it
depends on how far you want to go in this process. You can
stop there, or join the Mission formally. If you join
the Mission further, you will be more involved in the Mission and
what it is trying to accomplish. For more detail go to the
A6 – Yes, there
are seven levels of initiation in the Mission. The first level
is the use of our universal mantra (Haree Om Shrii Hung – Om Nam
Kevalam, or HOSH mantra). The second is the introductory
initiation. The next four levels are the initiation to the
four parts of The Holy Name. And the Seventh level is the
Highest initiation to the Mission!
A7 – If you just
use our universal mantra, it is absolutely up to you how far you
want to go in understanding and helping the Mission. If you
formally join the Mission and are initiated, then you will be more
obligated toward the Mission.
A8 – When you
join the Mission formally, the minimum requirement is the financial
help of 10% of your gross income (tithe). This is the
least commitment you pledge to the Mission. Anything more than
that is your own decision to pledge or offer. Since we are
looking for the most dedicated and those who have been born to help
the Mission, we hope to attract very dedicated people to the
If you are only interested to know the Mission
and meditate on the HOSH mantra, there are no obligations.
Whatever efforts you would put into the Mission, in this level, is
A9 – Maitreya
takes no money whatsoever from anything that comes to the Mission.
A10 – The
finances are handled with the collective decisions made by the board
of directors. The expenses are handled by the secretary.
A11 – Yes, our
Scripture is called the
The Holiest Of The Holies
(THOTH), The Last Testament. It consists of eighteen books
plus a glossary. It explains many things, including the
Eternal Divine Path, in detail.
A12 – Yes.
A13 – COLs are
the communities based on the Eternal Divine Path (EDP) and The
Greatest Sign (GS). The GS reveals the EDP. The
EDP is a path. In order to reap the benefits of it, you have
to walk it. The Mission does not have any dogma.
It is a path.
A14 – You join
the Mission and become a contact person, wherever you are. By
reaching out and attracting others to these teachings, you
eventually can start a COL where you live. The more COLs we
create, the sooner His Kingdom will come on earth!
A15 – From the
that we receive from our members and/or the COLs, 7% will be sent to
the Mission (Center) and 3% will be used for the community.
After that, each community decides how they want to set their
A16 – That is
the mode we recommend mostly for the Communities Of Light.
Families consist of married couples. Married couples and the COLs
are the base of the Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth.
Destroy the family, and you will destroy a society!
A17 – Yes. We,
however, recommend abstinence until marriage. We also recommend
young people to make a life-long decision about their sexuality
early in life. If they decided to live a life of celibacy,
they should become a renunciate (sannyasins, like nuns but more
active in the world!). If they decide to marry, they
should do it as early in their life as possible. Married
couples become the stabilizing force in the community. The
renunciates should become the spiritual force behind the community.
Both should follow the Eternal Divine Path and help the communities
in their own capacity. Both are an essential part of a good
(God) community. For more detail about the COLs, read
