Universal Love: The Yoga Method of Buddha Maitreya - Lama Thubten Yeshe
Lama Yeshe gives a commentary on the practice of Maitreya Buddha. "Maitreya is the manifestation of the love of all the Buddhas - all the supreme beings who have achieved limitless, universal love. When we practice the yoga method of Buddha Maitreya we unify with the universal love energy that is Maitreya by developing to their ultimate extent the limited qualities of love, compassion and purity that presently lie within us…Tantra is the right practice for Westerners and of the utmost need in the twentieth century. After all, the Buddha wanted us to have as much perfect pleasure as possible; he certainly didn't want us to be miserable, confused or dissatisfied. Therefore we should understand that we meditate in order to gain profound pleasure, not to beat ourselves up or to experience pain. If entering the Buddhist path brings you nothing but fear and guilt then it's certainly not worth the effort." Lama Thubten Yeshe.
