Over $3.5 Million Has Been Donated since 1994 from the Sales of Buddha Maitreya Shambhala Healing & Meditation Tools
In 1996 His Holiness Buddha Maitreya established the Church of Shambhala Vajradhara Maitreya Sangha, a 501c(3) non-profit American Buddhist Church, offering the opportunity for western students to lead more spiritual and service orientated lives. The Church represents both East and West and the tenets of Christianity and Buddhism, with charitable activity and harmlessness as the fundamental teachings. Around this time, Buddha Maitreya also started up the registered charity "The New Group of World Servers Trust" and a Dharma Center in Glastonbury, UK.
Charitable activities began earlier. Buddha Maitreya started helping exiled Tibetan Refugees and Tibetan Monasteries from 1994, when he set up the Sanatan Dharma Center in Kathmandu, Nepal, near the famous Boudha Stupa. Over the years this center was home to many exiled Tibetans and the base for extensive charitable work throughout Nepal, India, and Tibet.
From 2000 onwards Buddha Maitreya was financially supporting over 25 monastic projects and providing regular donations to hundreds of individuals in these countries for food, shelter, healthcare and education.
At the present day, Buddha Maitreya directs a small, established group of "Sangha" (around 12 western Buddhist monks and nuns) and gives regular "Dharshan" teachings to Dharma Students from around the world at His new Maitreya Monastery in Lake County, California. Dharshans are usually two days of being in the healing presence of His Holiness while listening to His practical teachings of attaining greater discernment and living a more Soulful life.
We are working hard to complete the Monastery as soon as possible - it is a Tool for healing the planet, integrating a design of Sacred Geometry with the Living Buddha‟s Dharma Teachings of Harmlessness.
The Church welcomes donations, and also raises funds each day by handcrafting and selling the Buddha Maitreya Shambhala Healing & Meditation Tools.TM Designed by His Holiness, these tools of sacred geometry and crystal are for "Soul Therapy": transmitting His healing and transformative Buddhaic force of Light, creating a telepathic bridge that heals and brings spiritual blessings.
The Sangha, now based at the Maitreya Monastery, dedicate their daily meditation and service to making, distributing, and helping people learn about the tools. Outreach to the global community is done through phone calls and attending shows and events, and of course the websites (listed on front cover). When ready, the monastery will be available for private retreats and appointments for Soul Therapy, which is a one hour meditation inside a Buddha Maitreya Pyramid system.
Also, there is a center open to the public called "Buddha Maitreya Meditation Soul Therapy Center" in Glastonbury UK, which offers Buddha Maitreya‟s Soul Therapy, and stocks all the different Buddha Maitreya Shambhala meditation and healing tools.
Your donation will also help to support our ongoing projects in Asia. Since 1994, Buddha Maitreya has supported the renewal and restoration of sacred sites across Nepal as well as India and Tibet: rebuilding Tibetan monasteries in Dema and Litang, Tibet; constructing new Prayer halls at several Khamtsen colleges within Drepung Loseling Buddhist University, India and establishing The Great Namgyal Stupa for all Tibetan refugees and ex-political prisoners within H.H. Dalai Lama's Residence in Dharamsala.
In addition, Buddha Maitreya is renowned for his ongoing regular support of the practical daily needs of Tibetan Buddhist Monasteries with a focus on improving the basics: diet, clothing and shelter. Since 1996, over $3.7 million has been given to Tibetan Buddhist projects.
"My main teaching and my main work is Charity and the focus of Tibetan Buddhism... All of those teachings are based on Charity. Wisdom comes from Giving. It is the hardest thing in the world to do. So it's our Bodhicitta, Buddha nature that allows us to do this.Money can make you greedy; it can make people greedy, money itself. But money is a source of all wealth all prana. It is not inherently negative; it is a vehicle for Giving. If you give it, you receive it. Its magic is so powerful – yet, if you hold onto it, it will take away Buddha nature and it will destroy you. It is made to be given away, to be shared." ; Please read the teaching on Charity.
Most recently, Buddha Maitreya has helped to establish a network of free medical clinics within Nepal - located in the cities of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and at Chaimale village serving the rural outlying areas, the clinics provide both allopathic and homeopathic medicine including the Buddha Maitreya Shambhala Healing Tools to the poor and those most in need.
