The Future Buddha, Maitreya Buddha Statue for Meditation and Yoga
We, Vajrayana artists from Kathmandu Valley, have masterfully hand-carved the Maitreya Buddha statue in the traditional Himalayan style. This exquisite piece of artwork is made up of oxidized copper and then partially plated with silver, which gives it an antique and classic final look. The Maitreya Buddha is depicted sitting on an elaborately decorated throne that incorporates many fine details and intricate designs. He rests his feet upon a moon disc lotus seat and performs the 'Dharmachakra mudra' with his two hands that represent the teaching of the Dharma or the Wheel of Dharma. Every detail has been crafted with care and precision, resulting in a truly magnificent work of art.
Add this Maitreya Buddha statue to your shrine, or gift it to a devotee yourself for daily Buddhist rituals and activities.

Maitreya, in the Buddhist tradition, the future Buddha, presently a bodhisattva residing in the Tushita heaven, who will descend to earth to preach the dharma (“law”) anew when the teachings of Gautama Buddha have completely decayed. Maitreya is the earliest Bodhisattva around whom a cult developed and is mentioned in scriptures from the 3rd century CE. All schools of Buddhism accepted him, and he is still the only bodhisattva generally honored by the Theravada tradition.
