Questions

Are there any upcoming Maitri events?

Since May 2011, the Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha Organisation has held a series of World Peace Maitri Puja events in Nepal which have allowed people from all over the world to visit Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha Guru and receive His divine blessings.

Upcoming Puja events are usually announced on the maitriya.info website and you may wish to subscribe to notifications in order to receive news updates as things evolve.

Currently however, the focus for the international community is centred around helping to plan and prepare for Guru’s World Travels in order to help the Maitri Dharma spread throughout the world. For example, there are already some small groups established for North America, Europe, China, India, Russia, Ukraine, Denmark, Thailand, South America and New Zealand (amongst others) who are currently discussing ideas, proposals and plans for helping these world travels to manifest.

There is still much work to be done and many kinds of assistance required so if you feel like helping out, you are most welcome to join one of these openly communicative groups and get involved.

Simply email us at contact@bsds.maitriya.info and let us know which country you live in and we will do our best to help you join the most appropriate group.

How can I see Guru?

The best way to see Guru is to attend a Puja event where you will most likely be able to sit in front of Guru in the Puja tent and also receive darshan. Puja events are usually announced on the maitriya.info website and if you wish to, you can subscribe to notifications here in order to receive news updates.

Alternatively, as Guru plans to travel internationally in a few years, you may wish to wait for His World Travels to begin. For those who would like to help out with the informal discussions and planning for Guru’s travels, please see the FAQ under Guru’s World Travels – Can I help with organising Guru’s World Travels?

For those who are still feeling drawn to visiting a Maitri Centre in Nepal, there is a possibility of visiting however please know that there is never any guarantee that you will meet Guru or even see Him during your stay. If you would like to visit a Maitri Centre in Nepal, we kindly ask that you contact office@maitriya.info prior to your arrival for the most updated information.

The general facilities at the Maitri Centres in Nepal are still quite basic so for those visiting, it will be important that you bring your own tent, sleeping bag, torch and any other necessary items that you feel are appropriate for your stay.

Can I help with organising Guru’s World Tour?

During the World Peace Maitri Puja in March 2017, it was wonderful to see the very early stages of ideas and proposals being shared about Guru’s World Tour. During this time, international sangha members from all over the world were brought together into small regional and country based groups to talk about this wonderfully exciting new Dharma project.

Sangha groups were emerging from North America, Europe, China, India, Russia, Ukraine, Denmark, Thailand, South America and New Zealand (amongst others) as they came together to discuss various proposals and ideas for the Guru’s travels in their particular country or region.

Over time, these Sangha groups have continued to evolve, meet & discuss and for anyone wishing to join these country or regional based groups, we lovingly invite you here to get involved as you wish. Simply email us at contact@bsds.maitriya.info and let us know which country you live in and we will do our best to help you join the most appropriate group.

Each country and region has been asked to work together in their own way and through their own methods and processes. For those who wish to join or participate in these groups, we simply ask that you please bring a feeling of loving kindness and respect so that this important work can continue to be done harmoniously and with a feeling of Maitri.

What is the schedule for Guru’s World Tour?

At this early stage, there are still many ideas, proposals and preparations being discussed and as such, there is no fixed schedule available yet for Guru’s travels.

The process for discussing these ideas and proposals was only officially opened during the World Peace Maitri Puja in March 2017 so it is likely that this will now take some time before any formal and structured schedule can be completed.

For now, we lovingly invite all truth seekers, Dharma lovers, Guru devotees and citizens of the world who wish to be involved with these open communications to join these country and regional based Sangha groups. May we all share in this wonderfully benevolent and highly meritorious Dharma project for the benefit of all!

If you would like to get involved, simply email us at contact@bsds.maitriya.info and let us know which country you live in and we will do our best to help you join the most appropriate group.
