Here is a video relevant to this topic, I find it interesting:
As the year 2000 approaches, declarations that a vast metaphysical change will coincide with the turn of the chronological odometer have not lacked an audience. Twice in the past decade, for example, books that set dates for Christ's Second Coming sold well enough to generate numerous news stories. One promised the event in September 1988, the other suggested late summer 1994. But needless to say. . . . Still, history-stopping expectations have by no means been unique to Christians. For the better part of two decades, a British painter, Benjamin Creme, has been lecturing to audiences that a Messianic figure expected by all major faiths will soon reveal himself and make the planet a much better place to live. In itself, this idea of a universal savior is not unique to Mr. Creme (pronounced crim); others have proclaimed similar dawnings at various times recent and past. But Mr. Creme, a soft-spoken, snowy-haired man of 73, has for years drawn crowds in the United States and overseas by offering a detailed and decidedly upbeat description of changes he says are already under way. As he tells it, the planet will soon hear from a figure called the World Teacher, whose personal name is Maitreya, chief among the Masters of Wisdom, themselves a handful of "perfected men" who serve as guardians of a divine plan for Earth. Maitreya, Mr. Creme says, left his abode in the Himalayas in a "self-created" human body to travel to London on July 19, 1977, where he has since lived among South Asian immigrants, preparing for a Day of Declaration in which he will reveal himself by means of global television and teach the building of a new civilization for the mutual benefit of all. "I'm told that it's any time," Mr. Creme said in an interview last week, referring to the public revelation.
