Comportments such as anger, arrogance, jealousy and hatred are at the origins of suffering. These comportments and the suffering that comes out of them are caused by the lack of consciousness of the people. People are imprisoned in this suffering and search for a way to make it through. This is primarily caused by the person themselves.
It is by looking at ourselves, by observing our ego’s mask and by awakening our consciousness that we can eradicate these false conceptions, which is the true root of suffering. These false conceptions come from the attachment to material goods, to relationships and to the value we give to our own identity. These attachments are the true roots of suffering. It is by finding their source, their roots, that we can grasp, understand its nature, and finally free ourselves from it.
This is the thought and attitude that constitute the foundation of Mahajrya Buddhism. And the goal is to train its members so that they can become useful to help humanity as a whole.
We seek members who will collaborate, either a little or a lot, to our projects, most of the time for their own spiritual evolution. The Mahajrya welcomes those who wish to join and help in our mission. Here are the advantages of being a member of the Mahajrya:
Throughout Mankind’s history, all Masters who have observed the Truth have discovered the same reality, which each one named according to the corresponding Age, culture etc. This fundamental truth is the existence of a Creator, of the Creation and Interaction. Thus, for the Hindus, these three concepts correspond to Brahma (Creator), Vishnu (Creation) and Shiva (Interaction); for Kabbalists, as Eheieh (Father), Iah (Son), Yahveh (Holy Spirit); for Buddhists, it’s Amitabha (White Light), Mahastamprapta (Great Wise Power), Avalokiteshwara (Lord Beholder); for Christians, God (Father), Christ (Son), and the Holy Spirit. When perceived from Oneness, any difference or discussion between religions or traditions, it is dissolved, since all talk about the Truth, the only difference being the names and terms that each one uses.
This is what allows the Mahajrya, in spite of being a Buddhist tradition, eventually to pay attention to 4 other Spiritual Masters, whose teachings ,alongside those of Shakyamuni Buddha, serve as inspiration on the path towards the liberation of suffering and the attainment of Samadhi. These five Masters are:
Shakyamuni Buddha. His life occured around 550 BC. He was the creator of Buddhism. He was born as a prince, however, he abandoned the palace and a life of luxury in search of the Truth. After studying the Vedas and the Bramha’s ascetism of the time, he came to realize that those paths where not leading him towards the ultimate liberation of suffering, so he decided to search for a new way of his own accord. That was how he achieved a state of Buddha (to be Awake). From that point on, he began to share his awakening by teaching and showing the The Middle Way, which is: 1) There is suffering 2) There is an understanding of suffering 3) There is a path towards the liberation of suffering 4) There is no suffering. Above all, Shakyamuni developed Compassion as a Virtue so that everyone by his side would stop suffering.
In Mahajrya, we study Shakyamuni to inspire us and to learn about his compassion. For that, we focus on some specific Sutras, such as the Sutra of the Heart, the Sutra of the Lotus, the Sutra of the Diamond, and the Sutra of MahaParinirvana.
We meditate on him through the folowing mantra:
Om Muni Muni MahaMunaye Swaha
Jesus. From him, Christianity was born. He lived at a time when suffering’s principal cause was materialism and greed, in the face of this, he predicated charity and forgiveness as virtues, the charity of sharing with your fellow man so that all could enjoy life’s experiences, forgiveness because it is what liberates us form suffering, it heals the heart and leads us to a desire to share again.
So in the Mahajrya we study Jesus, not centered on Christianity’s dogmatism, but rather contemplating the actual words spoken directly by him in the Bible, for example when he said, “many more, as I, will come and do better things than I”- John 14:12, or “ I tell you that amongst those born of woman there is no prophet grater that Saint John the Baptist”- Lucas 7:28. Jesus thereby teaches us about charity and forgiveness towards our fellow man.
To connect with Jesus we pray the Our Father:
Who is in heaven,
Holy is Your Name;
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
And to you are the reign,
power and glory for eternity.
Krishna. His life took place around 3500 BC. It was with him that Hinduism was founded. He was a prince who never renounced his position. Instead, he used his condition to teach us how to become an Avatar (an incarnation of Brahma in a human form), through the celebration of life as free and responsible spiritual beings. This included the enjoyment of experiences such as alcohol, meat or sexuality ( in a responsible manner) as well as the practice of spirituality and prayers. That is how the Hare Krishna is born, a prayer to the celebration of the existence.
Krishna’s main virtue studied in the Mahajrya is the Non-Action, in which there is no lack of action, rather, a lack of attachment to the result of the action. For that, we study and employ the Siddhi Meditation and the study of the Bhagavad-Gita.
We meditate in the Hare Krishna:
“Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama
Rama Rama, Hare Hare”
Melkitzedeq. He lived around 2000 BC. In the bible, he appears in Genesis 14:18 as the King of Salem. He is known as the King of Justice. He was a severe master with himself, meaning that in him, justice always prevailed before all else, this justice not being human justice as dictated by law. His justice was the Divine Justice, which is the right of all humans to live their own experience without ever preventing others living their own experiences or harming them as they do so. He is considered one of the fathers of Kabbalah, the science of the creation of the universe which enables us to discover ourselves from Eheieh to Adonai Melek, from Kether to Malkuth.
We meditate in Melkitzedeq by chanting his name: Melkitzedeq. Also you can contemplate his name in Hebrew:
Maha Vajra. He is an enlightened spiritual Master with great understanding of different spiritual paths and traditions from oriental to occidental wisdom. He is the founder and MahaAcharya of the Buddhism tradition known as Mahajrya (the “Great Field” of consciousness), also known as Quantum Buddhism Association.
At the age of 4, Melkitzedek himself appeared to Maha. And through consciousness and meditation, Maha was taught all the wisdom related to Kabbalah. Then in his teens, he studied the Hindu path until he was ordained as a Hindu Swami on the Siddha Yoga path in 1998. But he wanted to have a global perspective of spiritual arts. So he went into the Christian and the Buddhist path at the same time. In 2007, he was ordained as a Christian Priest in the LCAC: Liberal Catholic Apostolic Church. And since 2010, he has been a member of the EADM esoteric church: Ecclesia Apostolica Divinorum Mysteriorum. In the Buddhist path he was ordained, in 2007, as an Acharya in the Japanese Hongaku Jodo, a Pure Land tradition. At this moment he went on his own founding the Mahajrya tradition to include the Vajrayana in his teachings. All of this allows him to adapt the wisdom to every crowd he addresses.
He experienced enlightenment at the age of 24, when coming back from meditation during a personal growth seminar he was attending. He sat on the grass outside and he knew that he was the creator of all that he was observing. And he was also all that was created that reached his perception. He was one with everything, as the creator and as what was created at the same time. He looked at people dancing further in the field, close to a cow, and he was the people dancing, as well as the joy that they felt, as well as the cow wondering what it was all about.
Since then, and despite all the judgments about enlightenment, Maha Vajra has never denied or hid his state of enlightenment. Instead, he says it is a way to inspire others, that it is possible and everyone can reach it in this life. This is what has been said so many times by other Masters such as Buddha or even by Jesus when he openly said he was not the only one. And Jesus mentioned that there were many other great Masters such as Saint John Baptist.
Maha Vajra explains that a Spiritual Master is someone that masters himself but never others. So a Spiritual Master never has any kind of authority over others and should be free of the need of admiration and validation. A real Spiritual Master should acknowledge others so they will discover that they are God.
He teaches that there is no way to enlighten if you still consider yourself a “special being” or feel you are better than the others. The experience of enlightenment is about everyone being One and everyone being God, not just “me” as an individual being. He likes to say to his students and disciples: “there`s no way to attain enlightenment, what you have to do is to stop attaining non-enlightenment.” Meaning that we are all already enlightened as that is our natural state of being as Souls. Most of us don`t remember it, so the work to do is to stop fighting against it.
One of the episodes of his life where he showed his great compassion, being only 17 years old, was when his brother was shot and killed at a party by a drunk friend. A few days later, during the funeral, the killer wanted to see for himself what he had done, before going to jail. At that moment, Maha jumped on him, held him in his arms hugging him and said several times, “you have to live your life knowing that I forgive you,” loud enough for everyone in the room to hear. Then he explained how in a difficult and dramatic situation like this, someone should remain in forgiveness and compassion. So he did it.
His main teaching is "there is no darkness." The Sanskrit word for this is aKrshn, which is his actual perception of another great Master Isaiah, from the Bible, to whom he feels very close and linked. He is fond of this passage specifically: Isaiah 9:2“Those who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the valley of the shadow of the death, on them has light shined.“
Nowadays Maha Vajra lives his life teaching and training Masters in any part of the world where he is invited.
