Maitreya Bodhisattva (Tibetan language Jampa) is the future Buddha of this world, who will eventually appear on this earth, achieve complete enlightenment, and teach the pure Dharma. Maitreya Bodhisattva will be the successor of the historic “Uakyamuni Buddha. He is predicted to be a “world-ruler”, uniting those over whom he rules. The prophecy of the arrival of Maitreya is found in the canonical literature of all Buddhist sects (Treavada, Mahayana and Vijrayana) and is accrpted by most Buddhists as a statement about an actual event that will take place in the distant future.
Maitreya resides in the Tucita Heaven said to be reachable through meditation.Uakyamuni Buddha also lived here before he was born onto the world. Some Bodhisatva live in the Tucita Heaven before they descend to the human realm to become Buddhas. In Mahayana schools, Maitreya is traditionally said to have revealed the Five Treatises of treatises of Maitreya thought Asanga. These important texts are the basis of the Yogachara traditional and constitute the majority of the Third Turning of the wheel of Dharma.
Maitreya’s coming will occur Turning of the teachings of the current Buddha Gautama, the Dharma, are no longer taught and are completely forgotten. Maitreya is predicted to attain Bodhi in seven days (which is the minimum period) by virtue of his many lives of preparation for Buddha-hood (Similar to those reported in the Jataka stories of shakyamuni Buddha). Maitreya’s coming is characterized by a number of physical events. The oceans are predicted to decrease in size, allowing Maitreaya to traverse them freely. The event will also allow the unveiling of the “true” dharma to the people, in turn allowing the construction of a new world. The coming also signifies the end of the middle time in which human currently reside (characterize as a low point of human existence between the Gautama Buddha and Maitreya).
