How to Meet the next Buddha Metteyya:

"You can come as you like, but you pay as you go..."

The Buddha Metteyya, the Friendly One, will be the last & 5th Buddha in this Aeon!

1: One should give gifts (dāna),
2: One should observe morality (sīla),
3: One should practice meditation (bhāvanā),
4: One should be firm and determined (dalha),
5: One should wish sincerely to meet him with agitated mind (ubbigga-manasa),
6: One should be stirred by an acute sense of urgency (samvega),
7: The Observance days (uposatha) should be rigorously kept.
8: Friendliness (mettā) should be quite carefully cultivated.
9: Deep Concentration (samādhi) should be regularly trained.
10: Real Understanding should be sought and achieved (pañña).
Right behaviour (action) can be compared to having sound limbs...
Right understanding can be compared to being able to see...
If one or the other is missing, a person will be unsuccessful.
If both is fully present, the person will be fully successful.
Meeting the Metteyya Buddha opens the Doors to the Deathless Nibbāna...
