Buddha Maitreya and his wife Mandarava Tara in front of the Church of Shambhala Vajradhara Maitreya Sangha Monastery
It’s an absolutely amazing place, and the monastery is built there to amplify something that has been going on for so long. Imagine that on that land, for millions of years no one has touched that land, no one has lived there, hung out there. There was never a purpose to be there - no lakes, no animals running around, no streams - even Native American Indians didn’t hang out there, we find a lot of arrowheads down at the bot- tom, so they could find what they needed down at the bot- tom of the hill, and didn’t have to go up to the top.

So to go up there, be located at that particular spot, is quite something - and we know that the lake that is Clearlake is the second oldest on the planet … which means Mt. Konocti has to be one of the oldest mountains on the planet. That carries a planetary recapitulative process, one that’s not been affected by imperil from the past, by people running the place, or living there or carrying out ceremonies and so on. Its clear from that completely.

So putting a pyramid there and domes and making it into six-pointed star and adding all the things I make, it’s the same thing as one of my big Shambhala Solar Forms, but incredibly more powerful.

This part of the area is set up with leylines, geysers right next to it. We get all the electricity for Lake County from geothermal; we don’t use fossil fuel for electricity, it’s one of the few places in the United States like that, so our entire center runs off geysers not fossil fuel. That really changes an energy around this place. Plus it has an enormous vortex of electromagnetic field going on where there used to be a lot of eruption. The mountain is right over a major area of volcanic activity - not active but active enough so they have geysers all around - and ‘Old Faithful’ down the road.

The Land - 2006

“Shambhala offers us the material world for us to live and experience Heaven on Earth”

The Maitreya Monastery is located in Lake County, Northern California. The land, a 165 acre lot purchased in December 2006, overlooks Clear Lake, the largest lake in California, the oldest natural lake in North America and the 2nd oldest lake in the world.

The area is truly pristine. Set beside an ancient volcanic mountain (Mt. Konocti) the area has the cleanest air in all of California as well as protected flora and fauna. Buddha Maitreya soon brought in yaks, goats and llamas that help increase the natural beauty and nature of the surroundings.
