Buddha Maitreya, whose name means immense love, is the next Buddha to appear in this fortunate aeon. He will manifest to teach Dharma, following a sutra path, concentrating on practice of the six paramitas in extensive form.
He is in the sitting position, signifying his readiness to come and teach us and to bring us out of samsara. Propitiating him and making offerings to his image brings increase and great growth to our spiritual practice.
Mantra: OM MAITREYA MAM SOHA
