Maitreya is an internationally anticipated World Teacher/World Leader. C. W. Leadbeater and Annie Besant groomed and promoted Jiddu Krishnamurti to be the earthly vessel or embodiment of this entity in the early 20th century. Benjamin Kreme is another who some believe to be the incarnation of this being. The Order of the Rising Sun was founded by George Arundale in 1911 to prepare the way, to prepare the minds of the public for this advent; Ms. Besant and Mr. Leadbeater changed the name to The Order of the Star in the East when she announced J. Krishnamurti as that vessel in early 1912. Krishnamurti actively headed the Order from 1922, making speeches and writing articles for a quarterly journal, until he announced its dissolution.
