THE GREAT INVOCATION
From the point of Light
within the Mind of God
point of Love within the Heart of God
centre where the Will of God is known
centre which we call the race of men
Let Light and Love
and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
*In the Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, and Jewish translations of the Great Invocation, the name by which the Coming One is known in these religions is used ---the Lord Maitreya, Krishna, the Imam Mahdi and the Messiah.
The Great Invocation
The Great Invocation belongs to all humanity and not to any one religion or group. It is a world prayer, translated into more than 75 languages and dialects. The Great Invocation is based on truths common to all major religions and is used daily by millions of people all over the world.
To use the Great Invocation is world service for it is an instrument of power in the manifestation of the Plan of God on earth. It speaks directly to world need today. We need light to illumine the way ahead and reveal the vision of a new civilization; we need love to govern the relationships between people and bring to an end the reign of hatred and separatism; we need the power of the will-to-good to direct human choice and decision making.
Many believe in a World Teacher, knowing him under such names as the Lord Maitreya, the Imam Mahdi, the Messiah, & the Kalki Avatar.
By means of invocation, prayer & meditation divine energies can be released and brought into activity. Men and women of goodwill of many faiths and nations can join together in world service, bringing spiritual value & strength to a troubled world. Men & women have the power, through focused, united invocation, to affect world events. Knowledge of this fact, scientifically applied, can be one of the great liberating factors within humanity.
No one can use this Invocation or prayer for illumination and for love without causing powerful changes in attitudes and life intention.
It is sponsored by no group or sect. We urge you to use it and encourage others to do so on behalf of humanity.

"It is a fallacy to believe, as some do, that the main trend of Christ's work will be through the medium of the churches or the world religions...He will use all available channels whereby the consciousness of man may be enlarged and right orientation be brought about...the churches are but one of the teaching avenues He will employ...
"He will not come as the restorer of any of the ancient religions including Christianity, but He will come to restore man's faith in the Father's love, in the fact of the livinginess of the Christ and in the close, subjective and unbreakable relationship of all men everywhere...
"It is light and--above all else--"life more abundantly" which Christ will bring, and until He brings it we know not what it signifies; we cannot realise the revelation which this will entail and the new possibilities which will open up before us. But through Him, light and life are on their way, to be interpreted and applied in terms of goodwill and of right human relations.
"[His] reappearance will knit & bind together all men & women of goodwill throughout the world, irrespective of religion or nationality..." (The Master DK)
