Feedback from the Nature's Heart Concert

posted by Buddha Maitreya   [ updated ]

Pureland, Sunday 30th July 2017

"You sing with your heart. It comes from your heart and touches my heart. "

"At the concert I realised how far I was away from myself."

"Your concert made me think about Dualism (illusion) and Oneness (the truth)".

"I bought several of Maitreya's albums, I sent some to my friends in California and Korea, I listen to it all the time when I'm driving."

Maitreya performs the Tea Ceremony at the Lincoln Japan Festival

From the Lincolnshire Echo:
    The British love of tea proved to be a uniting link with a country on the other side of the world at the start of Lincoln's week-long Japan Festival.
    The Japanese tea ceremony, held at The Collection, proved to be so popular that it sold out straight away and an extra session was added.
    Although tea drinking is an integral part of both British and Japanese cultures, the way it is done is poles apart. Native of Japan, Buddha Maitreya, who conducted the ceremony for visitors, explained its significance, saying: "The tea ceremony symbolises the essence and spirituality of Japanese art and it is very much like Japanese people.
    "Simplicity is the essence of Japanese culture and to appreciate something as simple as tea, and the bowl it is in, shows how we appreciate small things."
