Raj Patel hailed as messiah

A British economist of Indian origin has been left perplexed after being hailed by a cult as its “chosen one” who it believes was hiding in the Himalayas for 2,000 years.

“I’m not the messiah… I’m just an economics expert,” an exasperated Raj Patel has been saying after being bombarded with email messages from followers of cult Share International across the world.

The cult, founded by Scotsman Creme in the 1950s, believes that the 18-million-year-old Maitreya — the “chosen one” — combines elements of Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism and Islam.

It all began when Patel, 37, gave a television interview in the US in January to discuss his book, The Value of Nothing, on the global financial crisis.


  1. I beleive that the coming Maitreya is not only the anti Christ, he is also the Lord Lucifer, the bright and shining star which fell from Heaven and was cast out.

    This is extemely worrying and i intend to make it my goal to let all know of this.

  2. Regardless of his supposed spiritual status, Raj Patel’s comment_content_IDeas are truly insightful. He is crystallizing an environmental/food justice/economic movement whose time has come and I believe the world is listening, not only to Raj Patel, but to many, many voices that are rising up in the Christ Light. Christ is returning in the hearts of man/woman, bringing peace and love to this world.
