Maitreya (Sanskrit), Metteyya (Pali), is regarded as a future Buddha of this world in Buddhist eschatology. According to the Buddhist tradition, Maitreya is a bodhisattva who will appear on Earth in the future, achieve complete enlightenment and teach the pure dharma. According to scriptures, Maitreya will be a successor to the present Buddha, Gautam Buddha (also known as Śākyamuni Buddha). The prophecy of the arrival of Maitreya refers to a time in the future when the dharma will have been forgotten by most on the terrestrial world.
Maitreya is typically pictured seated on a throne, with either both feet on the ground or crossed at ankles waiting for his time. He is dressed in the clothes of either a bhikṣuor Indian royalty. As a bodhisattva, he would usually be standing and dressed in jewels. Usually he wears a small stupa in his headdress that represents the stupa with relics of Gautama Buddha to help him identify it when his turn comes to lay claim to his succession and can be holding a dharam chakra resting on a lotus. A khata is always tied around his waist as a girdle.Maitreya has also been adopted for his millenarian role by non-Buddhist religions in the past, such as the White Lotus as well as by modern new religious movements such as Yiguandao. In some Buddhist literature, such as the Amitabha Sutra and the Lotus Sutra, he is referred to as Ajita. Maitreya currently resides in the Tuṣita Heaven and said to be reachable through deep meditation. Gautama Buddha also lived here before he was born into the world as all bodhisattvas live in the Tuṣita Heaven before they descend to the human realm to become Buddhas. The coming of Maitreya will be characterized by a number of physical events. The oceans are predicted to decrease in size allowing Maitreya to traverse them freely. #landscapephotography#neverstopexploring#traveldiaries#natgeotravel#travelgram#landscape#portrait#lonelyplanet#indiaclicks#nakedplanet#discoverearth#nomad#mountainlife#travel#ladakh#natgeo#naturephotography#winter#backpacker#theoutbound#explore#himalayas#traveller#nature#adventure#winter#buddhism#travelling#mountains#wanderer#storiesofindia
