Subject: Theos-World H.P. Blavatsky on the true Maitreya 

Murthy posted the following helpful quotes from H.P. Blavatsky on Theos-Talk back in August 2008. 

.....As for Leadeater's proclamation that Maitreya would appear as the 
"World Teacher" in the last century (20th) - this conflicts with all 
those references to the Maitreya's "coming" as found in "The Collected 
Writings of Blavatsky" and "The Secret Doctrine". In Blavatsky's and 
the Mahatma's statements Maitreya is regularly linked with the Kalki 
Avatar (eg., see Collected Writings: vol six, p116 and vol fourteen, p 
354 and p436) - hence references to Maitreya Buddha's "coming" are 
always at the end of a great cycle of a round or race - not just past 
mid cycle as we are now. [Introductory note by Murthy.] 

[Now the quotes from H.P. Blavatsky:] 

"MAITREYA is the secret name of the Fifth Buddha, and the Kalki Avatar 
of the Brahminsâthe last MESSIAH who will come at the culmination of 
the Great Cycle." (Secret Doctrine, vol one, p 384) 


"The simple secret is this: There are cycles within greater cycles, 
which are all contained in the one Kalpa of 4,320,000 years. It is at 
the end of this cycle that the Kalki-AvatÃra is expected." (Collected 
Writing, vol 14, p 354) 


And now for the Lamaic hierarchy. Of the living or incarnate Buddhas 
there are five also, the chief of whom is Taley-Lamaâfrom Tale, 
"Ocean" or Sea; he being called the "Ocean of Wisdom." Above him, as 
above H'amza, there is but the "SUPREME WISDOM"âthe abstract principle 
from which emanated the five BuddhasâMaÃtreya Buddha (the last 
Bodhisattva, or Vishnu in the Kalki avatara), the tenth "messenger" 
expected on earthâincluded. But this will be the One Wisdom and will 
incarnate itself into the whole humanity collectively, not in a single 
individual. But of this mysteryâno more at present. 
(Collected Writings, vol 3, p185) 

[note: "not in a single individual", Murthy] 


"LIKE Avalokiteshwara, Kwan-shi-yin has passed through several 
transformations, but it is an error to say of him that he is a modern 
invention of the Northern Buddhists, for under another appellation he 
has been known from the earliest times. The Secret Doctrine teaches 
that "He who is the first to appear at Renovation will be the last to 
come before Re-absorption (pralaya)." Thus the logoi of all nations, 
from the Vedic Visvakarma of the Mysteries down to the Saviour of the 
present civilised nations, are the "Word" who was "in the beginning" 
(or the reawakening of the energising powers of Nature) with the One 
ABSOLUTE. Born of Fire and Water, before these became distinct 
elements . . . the two are one [Avalokateshwara and Maitreya]. He 
will appear as Maitreya Buddha, the last of the Avatars and Buddhas, 
in the seventh Race. This belief and expectation are universal 
throughout the East. Only it is not in the Kali yug, our present 
terrifically materialistic age of Darkness, the "Black Age," that a 
new Saviour of Humanity can ever appear." 
(Secret Doctrine, vol one, page 471) 

[note: "not in the Kali yug", the last sentence above, as we are 
currently in the Kali Yuga cycle of 432,000 years of duration, and 
have been for the last few thousand years. Murthy] 


"Esoteric philosophy teaches that the next Buddha will appear during 
the seventh (sub) race of this Round." (Theosophical Glossary, under 
"Maitreya" ) 


Kalki Avatar (Sk.). The "White Horse Avatar", which will be the last 
manvantaric incarnation of Vishnu, according to the Brahmins; of 
Maitreya Buddha, agreeably to Northern Buddhists; of Sosiosh, the last 
Hero and Saviour of the Zoroastrians, as claimed by Parsis; and of the 
"Faithful and True" on the white Horse (Rev. xix., 2). In his future 
epiphany or tenth avatar, the heavens will open and Vishnu will appear 
"seated on a milk-white steed, with a drawn sword blazing like a 
comet, for the final destruction of the wicked, the renovation of 
'creation' anal the 'restoration of purity'". (Compare Revelation.) 
This will take place at the end of the Kaliyuga 427,000 years hence. 
The latter end of every Yuga is called "the destruction of the world", 
as then the earth changes each time its outward form, submerging one 
set of continents and upheaving another set.
