Maitreya Retreat

When we receive the blessing empowerment of Buddha Maitreya we receive instructions on training in common and uncommon paths, and we receive special blessings. To make these instructions effective we need to practice the yoga of Buddha Maitreya self-generation sadhana.

Maitreya is the manifestation of all the Buddhas' realization of loving kindness, who helps and guides us along the stages of the path to enlightenment. By relying on Buddha Maitreya with faith we will receive this Buddha's special care, and he will bestow upon us the realizations of Kadam Lamrim, through which we can solve our own and others' wishes, and ultimately accomplish the supreme happiness of enlightenment.
