A canvas printed thangka of Maitreya, the next Buddha to appear in this fortunate aeon.

Maitreya was the heart disciple of Shakyamuni Buddha and as Shakyamuni left Tushita heaven, he passed his crown to Maitreya, inviting him to his seat as an indication that Maitreya would be the next Buddha. And so, Maitreya resides as the current monarch in Tushita Heaven, awaiting the time when he will descend to teach the Dharma again and bring us out of suffering in samsara.

Maitreya's skin is golden for he brings increase and great growth to our spiritual practice. His hands, held in the mudra of teaching, represent the defining act in which he will manifest - to teach and turn the wheel of Dharma. He has promised that when he appears, his teachings shall follow a sutra path, concentrating on practice of the six paramitas in extensive form. He sits upright, forward in full readiance to arrive and teach us, and his form resembles ours to represent that he will manifest in that way to help us out of our suffering.

Making a connection to Maitreya now and doing his practice gives us the assurance that we can be one of his foremost disciples when he teaches in the future. More importantly, it also has the immediate effect of achieving the six paramitas, letting go and embracing all others. His practice helps us to attain pure views, great, immense love and the same virtuous qualities as our guru.
