TITLE: SEARCHING FOR MAITREYA – AN INQUIRY INTO A SPIRITUAL TEACHER OF OUR TIME
A presentation by Patricia Pitchon
DATE: THURSDAY 12 MAY 2011
TIME: 7.30pm - 9pm
INFO: Who is Maitreya and who are the ‘Masters of the Wisdom’? Are they among us now? What do they teach, what is their purpose and how do these relate to our modern concerns? Maitreya has been given many descriptive titles, such as ‘The Lord of Love’, the ‘Christ of the Aquarian Age’, an incarnation of Krishna, the forthcoming Buddha, a Bodhisattva or ‘perfected man’ as her appears in early prophecies, later Buddhist works and esoteric nineteenth and twentieth century writings. The speaker describes her search for this mysterious spiritual teacher, through practical and theoretical research, observation and participant observation.
(As of May 2011, Maitreya has now given 36 televised interviews; 29 in the USA, and 7 in Mexico. Further interviews are expected to take place in Japan, Europe and the rest of the world.)
