Hello all,

The subjectline of this posting may be a bit strange, I know.

Anyway, I don't know if you have heard about the Maitreya Project going on in Bodhgaya, India?
A 500-ft / 152.4-metre bronze statue of Maitreya Buddha is being designed to last for at least 1,000 years through our new millennium and into the next. The statue is scheduled for completion in January, 2005.
I will surely be attending when the grand opening is and I don't know if anyone of you are planning to be there just like me. I know that it is a long time until 2005 but you can rest asure that it will be quite crowded and hotels are likely to be booked a long while before the actual opening. Also it is quite costly, at least for me so I have to save a lot of money to go there. Well, if anyone would like meet me in India 2005 (Wow, that really is a long time from now) I would love the company. Maybe we could travel to other places in India and also to Nepal, going from one monastery to the other...

Hmm, I won't keep going on anymore about this, unless I am asked to do that...

BTW, if you haven't visited the website of the project, you should do this right away.

With Metta,
