What Maitreya shares is not a system, a set of beliefs, but simply invites you to become an inner scientist, a passionate seeker of truth. Maitreya’s presence and teaching supports everyone to grow in awareness, to become a conscious lover of reality and to verify all beliefs with your own inner experience.

Put aside your ideas about the ultimate truth and experience reality directly. Unverified beliefs will not help you to be free - even if they happen to be true. ~Maitreya

Helping friends to grow in consciousness and love is my greatest satisfaction. ~Maitreya

Satsang with Maitreya is a transformative blend of meditation, advaita-based teaching and high energy. Questions are answered with wisdom, humour and love.
