Buddha Mandala Monastery is planning to set up a holy statue of Maitreya Bodhisattva (4.5-metre-tall) to be offered in its Sugandha Hall; and it hopes to complete the project within five years.
The merits and virtues of making the holy statue of Maitreya Bodhisattva is immeasurable, for the future – one can wish to be reborn on the pureland of Tusita Heaven’s inner court, in the near term – one can receive blessings for wishes to be fulfilled, completeness and auspiciousness as well as peace for the country and stability for its people.
With the relevant seed sowed with Maitreya Bodhisattva now, one will surely receive the respective fruit with the Bodhisattva in future. We welcome all to join us in this creation of immeasurable merits and virtues, and the practice of the pureland of Maitreya Bodhisattva.
Maitreya Bodhisattva’s pureland is in Tusita Heaven. It is also appropriate for Vajrayana practitioner to make a wish to be reborn there. Making donations to set up the holy statue of Maitreya Bodhisattva for offering enable the building of a good relationship with the Bodhisattva, they form the main cause and condition for becoming his chief disciples. In time to come, practitioners can go to Tusita Heaven to receive Maitreya Bodhisattva’s teachings first. They can then follow him down to the material world to become his chief disciples.
Maitreya Bodhisattva will become Buddha in his next rebirth under a Longhua tree, the three turns of the dharma wheel is known as the three meetings in Longhua. As such, practitioners should make vows now to be reborn in the inner court of Tusita Heaven, create a relationship with Maitreya Bodhisattva, be born together on the pureland of Tusita Heaven’s inner court so as to join the first Long hua meeting. And with the merits and virtues created from this, wish for global peace, wars to end eternally, disease not to arise and weather conditions to be good; citizens can live in peace and work happily, their minds are always working towards the good, and they can soon attain enlightenment in their practice of Buddha’s teachings.
