The Secret Doctrine THE SYNTHESIS OF SCIENCE, RELIGION, AND PHILOSOPHY. By H. P. Blavatsky. Blavatskys masterwork on theosophy, covering cosmic, planetary, and human evolution, as well as science, religion, and mythology. Based on the Stanzas of Dzyan, with corroborating testimony from over 1,200 sources.Originally published 1888. The existence of great spiritual teachers, known as the Masters of Wisdom, became public knowledge in 1875 through the writings of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society. Blavatsky, who worked directly with the Masters, revealed that these perfected beings have guided humanity from behind the scenes of everyday life for countless millennia. Periodically, at times of great human crisis, they send one of their own into the world to show humanity the way forward. We know some of these teachers as Krishna, Confucius, Zoroaster, the Buddha, the Christ, and Mohammed. Anticipation of the imminent appearance of the Master of all the Masters, the World Teacher, Maitreya, grew and waned in the early part of the 20th century.
Maitreya is me, Maitreya is you and all others. He is beyond and the near. He is the Formless, Nameless, Invisible and Eternal (FINE). He is all there is (Om Nam Kevalam). He is the One and the Only. He is many in One. He is the force behind the peace. He is and He is not. There is none beside Him (La Elaho Ela Hoo).
He is the One, the Incredible, the Powerful. He is the Merciful, the Compassionate One, He is the Destroyer, the Creator, the Preserver, the Sustainer. There is none beside Him.
He is Y'shua; He is Mehdi; He is the Savior; He is the Messiah. He is the Knower of the Scriptures, He is the Revealer of the Scripture, He is its Writer. He is the Savior and the saved. There is none beside Him.
Maitreya is Christ (Christos: Christ-us); He is Krishna; He is the Vishnu, He is Brahma. He is Shiva. Maitreya is the first Adam and the second, and the third,... He is Mohammed and Bab and the Babas. He is the Teacher and He is the Student. There is none beside Him.
Maitreya is the Buddha and the Bodhisattva. He is none but the Nirvana itself. He is the Light seen in the moment of death. He is the Enlightened One, the Truth and the Way. There is none beside Him.
He is Brahmacharya and the Family Man. He is the Brahmin and the Rabbi. He is the Priest and the Molah. He is Hindu and Buddhist. He is Jewish and Christian. He is Moslem and Baha'i. He is all religions and is none of them. He is bound and is Free. There is none beside Him.
He is a Brahmin; He is a Shudra (worker). He is a Ksattriya (warrior); He is a Vipra (intellectual) and He is a Vaeshya (businessman). He is an Avatar, a Prophet. He is an Artist, a Guru and a Paravipra. He is economy and the Force behind earthly powers. There is none beside Him.
Maitreya is the Father and the Mother. He is the Son and The Holy Ghost. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He is the first and the last. There is none beside Him.

L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Dianetics and§ Scientology, suggested he was "Metteya" (Maitreya) in the 1955 poem Hymn of Asia.
Adi Da was suggested by his devotees to be Maitreya: "an§ All-Surpassing God-Man yet to come -- a final Avatar, the ultimate Messiah, a consumate Prophet or Enlightened Sage, a Spiritual Deliverer who will appear in the 'late-time', the 'dark' epoch when humanity is lost, apparently cut off from Wisdom, Truth and God. Buddhists call that Expected One 'Maitreya'." 
§ Raël's Maitreya claims center on the content of the Agama Sutra (Japanese: Agon Sutra), supposedly a very ancient text written by Buddha himself
