Shakyamuni Buddha and Maitreya Bodhisattva

Things happen for a reason, and so is your arrival in this page amidst the numerous loads of virtual pages.

You must have learned from the Teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha that now is the dark age of Dharma in which the Buddhist values will be kept eroding. At least 250 million years from now, Maitreya Bodhisattva will descend to teach the Buddha's Dharma again, reviving the lost spirits of sentient beings.

As stated in the "terma" of Guru Padmasambhava, now is also the right time to build the Buddha Dordenma in order to benefit all sentient beings in Buddha's Dharma by slowing the process of the dark age. As Bhutan is the only Shangri-La left on earth, our continuous efforts to preserve the Buddhist tradition will embark initially on the Buddha Dordenma Project.
