A Dharshan is a traditional Hindi / Indian term. It is a spiritual teaching given by someone who spends a lot of time meditating, someone who is recognized as a person who emanates a lot of healing energy. That healing energy becomes part of the teaching and a blessing is involved with the teaching. The Focus of a Dharshan is to change our nature from a more lower nature / personality oriented way of life to more Buddha Nature / spiritual way of life - one that is less self-centered and more selfless, a path of lifetimes....While we are in this body, it is our job to evolve this body in this life for our future life, not just for this life. So we work out the karma that we've done in the past. We live out the karma that we live out in everyday life. It is nothing more than a coming back around. So if we deal with our daily situation, our normal relationships in life, deal with them in a more evolved way, every day, every year, till the very day we die, we will come back with those abilities, and we will be able to relate to people even better. And we will be more Christ-like, we will have more 'Buddha Nature'. That is our only evolution in life - to become better, more evolved, more compassionate.
The Dharshan Experience
Being in the Presence of His Holiness will connect you to the merit of your past lives, facilitate personal and planetary healing and further your ability to achieve your Soul's purpose in this and future lives.
Buddha Maitreya will often focus on the tools and the use of the tools and any questions people have focused around that. They focus on the use of the Soul Therapy Music® and meditation as an alignment, attuning to different geometric forms during meditation, and the healing benefits that come from that. Buddha Maitreya also teaches that the tools and geometric forms are based on the esoteric principles of the 7 Rays of God and the vibrational healing that comes from the Soul, like coming into contact with Christ.
Attending a dharshan with Buddha Maitreya is not about learning scientific techniques. In fact, Buddha Maitreya teaches the opposite of that in the sense that these dharshans are not trainings on how to use the tools, but are to do with how they work and the difference between healing and treating a person for illness. Its a matter of how you choose to treat a person vibrationally and soulfully. Understanding the Science of God, which is how to come in contact with God's blessings.
Attending a Dharshan changes you through transmission from the living saints; Masters that radiate, bless and uplift your world to a more orderly, sacred, loving one through their prayers. Through His Holiness Buddha Maitreya's gift of the Sacred Science of Metatronics, those prayers are amplified to reach the world through the Buddha Maitreya Shambhala Healing Tools. Buddha Maitreya explains, how each life is a gift and we need to evolve as much virtue and good health as we can, so that in our future lives, we will be born with healthier bodies free from Bad Karma and free to radiate and serve others without limitations. The future is based on what seeds we plant now and our future lives will be the quality of the harvest. Each Human being has the great ability to be a radiating force of goodwill that helps all sentient being to change and heal past karma.
Attending an International Pilgrimage Dharshan, involves pilgrimage to some of the most sacred sites on the planet and elevates the spiritual energy of the participant in many ways.
- Meditate and work with the Buddha Maitreya Shambhala Healing Tools® and Soul Therapy Music® as much as you can. His Holiness has developed these tools, the Meditation Pyramids and Soul Therapy® to restore our physical and subtle bodies, our Etheric field. Videos of previous Dharshans are also available to purchase to help with the process of preparing to attend a Dharshan. This website contains the latest audio and video teachings that will also enhance your receptivity and facilitate a process of self-healing in and of themselves.
- Familiarize yourself with "Tapestry of the Gods" Volume I and II. These volumes are important preparatory reading in order to better understand the Seven Rays of God, the Science of the Soul which His Holiness teaches about during Dharshans.
- Experience Soul Therapy on at least 2 occasions. Soul Therapy connects that person's personality to their Monastic Soul Expression that is initiated energetically and the therapy of the Soul begins. Soul Therapy prepares humanity for the future reality of complete planetary redemption and transformation, based on the awakening of the Soul. Attending a Dharshan is a further stage in the awakening process.
- Use of Bach Flower Remedies as well as California Flower Essences is recommended.
Feel free to email us with any questions you may have at:
The main thing is that attending a Dharshan is not about following a "master" or joining a religion or group. As Buddha Maitreya teaches he sheds understanding on how historically humanity as a whole has been influenced by psychic illusion and glamour; how the expression of hate and separation creates wars, planetary pollution through waste and greed, autism in children and a long list of social imbalances. He talks about the Seven Rays and the Monad (the Mind of God) - helping to awaken that light within ourselves; the ability to see things more like God sees them and make choices that are in greater alignment with that understanding. If you would like to apply to attend, there is an informal & friendly application process where you have the opportunity to talk with experienced Sangha members. We answer any questions so as to make sure you know what to expect. In addition to using the Shambhala Healing Tools, Buddha Maitreya asks that you experience Buddha Maitreya Soul Therapy before attending a Dharshan which is a one-hour private meditation inside the Buddha Maitreya Soul Therapy Pyramid - a great way to prepare!

USA Dharshans are held at the Maitreya Monastery in Lake County, California. They are a two-day event held over a weekend. There are also a limited number of Dharshan spaces to attend 'virtually' via video conference. Dharshans are not workshops or about learning techniques or specific practices, it is the opportunity to listen to the incarnated Buddha Maitreya and attune and awaken the buddha nature within yourself. You are not expected to do anything but relax, enjoy and receive; simply being in the presence of His Holiness during the Dharshan changes you and evolves you, bringing greater understanding of life and how to be more Soulful.
Yes, there is a donation required, which for US Dharshans is usually a $1,000 offering plus an amount to cover meals and the expenses of the Dharshan itself (unless attending via virtual video conference). We are a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization which means that Dharshan offerings are a donation and 100% tax deductible where applicable. Each student also covers their own travel & lodging expense. Issues with the financial cost of a Dharshan usually come up when people have not yet gotten to know the nature of Buddha Maitreya's charitable work and focus, which has spanned the world since 1994 and continues to the present day. The focus of most fund-raising efforts during 2012 will be on furthering the completion of the Maitreya Monastery which of course Dharshan students get to experience first-hand!
The Dharshan Offering
If you are interested in attending, or have any questions, please call or email. Also if you haven't had a chance to see it yet, we highly recommend viewing Buddha Maitreya's latest teaching video "The Influence of Shambhala". Here is a list of the upcoming scheduled Dharshans and their respective dates:
