Description About the author Contents
 
The Maitreya Bodhisattva Sutra is a late 7th century CE text, and is especially significant because it addresses the problems of our time: the first 500 years of the Dharma-declining period which will last 10,000 years, according to the Buddha. In response to questions of the Bodhisattva Maitreya, the Buddha specifically offers the proper steps to be taken and the pitfalls to be avoided in order to obtain peace on earth, and ultimate liberation/Enlightenment. The Buddha also addresses the basic issues of desire, ego, greed, jealousy and ignorance, as well as pitfalls such as indulging in marketplace activities, worldly benefits, improper speech, etc. Buddha particularly emphasizes that cultivators (seeker) must not find and expose otherís faults and shortcomings. They should focus on their own cultivation. This sutra is an extraordinary guide for those who are on the Bodhi path, instructing them how to conduct themselves properly in order to obtain Enlightenment. It is vitally important, because as far as we know, there is no known other English translation of this text. It was translated from Pali into Chinese by Bodhiruci (A.D. 693-713), a monk from Southern India. The current English version was translated from the Chinese version published by the Amida Society in June, 2000.
