Chapter Thirteen – 1
The Maitreya and Messiah Scam
Slavemasters love to covertly manipulate people. Public Relations is one method used.
In the term public relations, the word public has a specific meaning. It means specific types of people. Teenage boys and their reality is one type of public. Mothers and their reality is another type of public. As you can imagine, there are many kinds of publics.
If you wanted to sell bicycles to teenage boys, you would have to design advertisements that appealed to the reality of teenage boys. If you wanted mothers to buy bicycles, you would have to design advertisements that appealed to the reality of mothers.

Gautama Sakyamuni was leader of the Buddhists about 500 BC. A Buddhist legend says that a follower of Gautama, named Maitreya, would reincarnate at a future time when the teachings of Gautama have been completely forgotten.
The Jewish community also has a legend – that a Messiah will appear to establish the Kingdom of God on Earth. Some Jews believe that Jesus Christ was their Messiah, while many other Jews reject Jesus Christ and they are still waiting for their Messiah to appear.
The Buddhists and their reality is a public. The Jews and their reality is another public.
Ron Hubbard wanted to be perceived as the returning Buddha and as the Jewish Messiah.
If Jewish people could be covertly manipulated into believing that Ron Hubbard was their Jewish Messiah,
then Jewish people would be inclined to buy Scientology services.
If the Buddhists thought that Ron Hubbard was Maitreya, they would buy Scientology.
A public relations campaign was orchestrated to present Ron Hubbard as being Maitreya.
Ron Hubbard claimed he was Maitreya and a book was written by him – Hymn of Asia An Eastern Poem.
The targeted public was the Buddhists.
Ron Hubbard is portrayed as Maitreya in Advance! Issue 27, December 1974.
The statement that Ron Hubbard was Maitreya was only the first part of a scheme called the Messiah Project.
The person in charge of the Messiah Project was Laurel Sullivan.
In the 1970’s Ron Hubbard had Scientologists conduct a massive set of surveys to find out what were the qualities people recognized in messiahs. The survey results included honesty, humanitarianism, justice, etc. The messiahs’ gift to mankind was “happiness”.
Nancy Many (left) with Silvia Kusada
Nancy Jean Many has been a long term undercover agent for the Church of Scientology Intelligence unit. She has authored a book under different titles and has testified in court about her experiences with Laurel Sullivan and the Messianic project. In the book she calls Laurel Sullivan “Abigail” but in the court testimony she calls her Laurel Sullivan.
In the late 70’s Nancy Many worked on a series of surveys for Ron Hubbard entitled the Messianic Surveys.
Sue was a member of Sullivan’s staff who worked in Clearwater.
Sue gave Nancy Many a briefing on the overall picture of these surveys. Sue told Nancy the intention of this project was to create the image of L. Ron Hubbard as a Messiah, and Scientology is executing a multi-year plan for world domination and for the adulation of L. Ron Hubbard as the next Messiah. Sue said that Ron Hubbard really did envision himself as the next Messiah and that the organization had many plans and was geared to bring about that reality. 1
Utilizing the survey data, Hubbard wrote The Way To Happiness.
He sent the manuscript and orders for its publication to Laurel Sullivan.
In December 1980 David Mayo wrote The Happiness Rundown.
This was delivered in conjunction with the book, The Way To Happiness.
The Messiah Program…
Some excerpts from the program are as follows:
Flag ED 2119
4 Feb 1981
The Way To Happiness Property, Production Design & Exploitation Program
The property, otherwise known as “the morals booklet” is written and designed as a non religious moral code based on common sense.
It will not be published by the Church or a Church related publisher. It will however be used by the Church in connection with Div 6 programs, the delivery of the Happiness Rundown, and will be made available through Church bookstores to the Scientology public. All this is in addition to, and is incidental to the broad public hand to hand’ campaign and uses of it in secular fields.
Its purpose is to improve morals over the world and create a hand to hand subversion of an immoral society. It is a new game, and it is intended to start a chain reaction through society in the improvement of morals.
Incidently, those on promotion lines will be very interested to know that this property very clearly fills all 9 of the Messianic buttons. The demand for such a code by the public is long term, and “happiness” is a button to be found again and again on surveys.
This program is a 1981 TOP PRIORITY CAMPAIGN, and is a coordinated effort on all fronts. Instructions for exploitation of the property have been written by LRH…
IV) Operates on the basis that the number of mentions of the product will act as a bridge to further acceptances of other products. Credit will come back to us eventually.
f. The booklet is NOT to be used as a street handout dissemination piece, but copies can be given out selectively with the Org’s name stamped on the front and back.

We can see that this has several uses. Ron Hubbard has his name as author of the book, thus it is a covert effort to get people to associate their idea of the Messiah with Hubbard.
Ron Hubbard is not the Maitreya or the Messiah – but he wanted to be perceived as them.

Edward Bernays is considered to be the father of spin. He authored the book Propaganda.
He taught how to create illusions that deceive and misrepresent, for marketing purposes.
He also taught that the people should not be aware of the manipulation taking place.
Hubbard created manipulative spin to deceive people into buying Scientology services.
Some who did OT VIII viewed Ron Hubbard as being the Jewish Messiah…
Ron Hubbard is not the Maitreya or the Messiah, the following data shows why not…
According to Jewish scripture the Messiah will make changes in the world, such as –
The Messiah brings an eternal peace between all nations, between all peoples, and between all people
(Isaiah 2:2-4; Micah 4:1-4; Ezekiel 39:9)
nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more
The Messiah rebuilds the Temple in Jerusalem.
(Isaiah 2:2; Ezekiel 37:26-28)
The Messiah rules the entire world from Jerusalem
The whole world will worship the One God of Israel
All Israelites will be returned to their homeland
There will be no more famine
The Messiah unifies the family
Ron Hubbard did not bring about any of the above, so he can’t be the Jewish Messiah.
Furthermore, Church of Scientology enforced disconnection policy breaks up families.

What Is to Be Done in Course, an LRH lecture 1 December 1952 –
I just got a wonderful wire… and it just came just now. They pick a pc off the street, you see, and they start running them, and this pc gets the idea that he is practically the Prince of Darkness or something of the sort and that it’s all a big plot and they just start asking this person this. And they’re the Prince of Darkness from Venus or someplace, you see… And so I’m going to send him back a letter, “So you say you have some connection with the Prince of Darkness out there and you’re very worried about this. Who do you think I am?“
Hubbard can’t be the Messiah to the Christians because they believe Jesus Christ was the Messiah.
And they say the Prince of Darkness is the Devil.

Some who did the original OT 8 say that it contained a religious briefing from Hubbard wherein he said he represents the anti-Christ. So he can’t be the Messiah to the Muslims because their scripture says that Jesus Christ will return and battle the anti-Christ.

Here are some core beliefs of Buddhism…
If a person releases their attachment to desire they can attain Nirvana.
This is a state of liberation from suffering.
Elimination of desire, thus attaining cessation of all suffering = the state of nirvana.
The Four Noble Truths:
1. Suffering exists.
2. There is a cause for suffering. (It is the desire to have and control things. It can take many forms: craving sensual pleasures; desire for fame; desire to avoid unpleasant sensations.)
3. There is an end to suffering. (Suffering ceases when you let go of any desire or craving, you then experience complete liberation from suffering which is the state of Nirvana.)
4. In order to end suffering, you must follow the Eightfold Path.
The Five Precepts:
These are rules to live by.
Do not kill. This is also translated as “not harming” or an absence of violence.
Do not steal. This includes the avoidance of fraud and economic exploitation.
Do not lie.
Do not misuse sex.
Do not consume alcohol or other drugs.
Maitreya or Metteyya:
Maitreya is regarded by Buddhists as a future Buddha. According to their scriptures, Maitreya will be a successor of the historic Gautama Sakyamuni Buddha.
A number of persons have proclaimed themselves to be the Maitreya incarnation.
A particular difficulty faced by any would-be claimant to Maitreya’s title is the fact that the Buddha is considered to have made a number of fairly specific predictions regarding the circumstances that would occur prior to Maitreya’s coming; such as –
the teachings of the Buddha would be completely forgotten
all of the remaining relics of Sakyamuni Buddha would be gathered and cremated
His coming is characterized by a number of physical events –
the oceans are predicted to decrease in size
Maitreya Buddha will be born in a time when humans live to an age of 80,000 years

Ron Hubbard cannot be the Maitreya because he told numerous lies, took drugs, advocated violence and killing with his Fair Game policies, and deceived people.
Most importantly, he was an agent for the New World Order and advocated support for rule by the most evil men in history – the British nobility. Nazi Germany was one of their operations; they have a long history of causing death and needless suffering to hundreds of millions of people.
In light of Ron Hubbard advocating support for these evil men, he couldn’t possibly have been more evil, and thus he cannot be the Maitreya.
Hubbard deceiving people into thinking he is the Messiah or Maitreya is a scam.
Scam – a fraudulent scheme, especially for making money quickly
