The Christ is not formless but, of course, the energy he embodies, the Love energy, the energy which we call the Christ Principle, is formless. His consciousness is centered in the mayavirupa (self-created body). He meditates and lives and works as a normal man, in the mayavirupa, which is a completely real body.
Maitreya has lived in his retreat high in the Himalayas (at about l7,500 feet) for the last 2,000 years in a ‘body of light,’ that is, the resurrected and ascended body of a perfected Master of high degree. That body is now ‘at rest,’ as he has termed it ― a state of suspended animation. The body in which he now lives and works in London is self-created especially for this mission and will remain as it is today for the next 2,500 years.
(1) Maitreya is totally perfected in a planetary sense. Even in a systemic sense he is without that sense of separation which we call sin. (2) No. He is a resurrected and ascended Master. In his present manifestation in the modern world (London), he is in a self-created body ― a mayavirupa.
