Buddish Eschatology says the Maitreya Buddah wil not surface until Humanity has lost touch with or forgotton the spiritually enlightening texts and Canons of buddhism.
That has not happened yet.
Dear Gerry, (ed. not my real name)
Thank you for contacting us. Maitreya Project has absolutely no connection whatsoever with Benjamin Creme and Share International. Maitreya Project follows the teachings of traditional Buddhism which explain that Maitreya Buddha will appear in our world in a far distant time. You maywish to look at the Maitreya section of the Maitreya Project website, which has more information about this: www.maitreyaproject.org...
Many thanks for your interest and for taking the time to contact us! Kind regards,Linda Gatter Media Manager Maitreya Project International email@example.com www.maitreyaproject.org
"The very name 'maitri' means 'loving-kindness'... in today's world, wereally need maitri, Maitreya, loving-kindness." ~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Comments: What is your official stance in regards to SHARE, the organization who also claims to promote Maitreya from a theosophic point of view? If there is a site or section already addressing this matter, I would appreciate reading it. Thank you.
