ABOUT MAHAJRYA

The Mahajrya is a modern Buddhist tradition that includes wisdom from other traditions, for a global understanding of happiness and suffering. It is about training ourself to behave with virtue, mainly Freedom, Forgiveness and Kindness, which are all part Compassion.

Behaviors such as anger, jealousy and hatred are at the origins of suffering. These behaviors, and the suffering that results, are caused by a lack of consciousness. People are imprisoned in this suffering and are simply searching for a way to make it through.

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 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 them.

This is the thought and attitude that constitutes the foundation of Mahajrya Buddhism. Our goal is to train our members so that they can become responsible happy people, to help humanity as a whole.

A member of the Mahajrya does not "belong" to the Mahajrya. All our members are completely free beings, who respond to no authority. For us, Freedom is absolute, while we are also fully responsible for all our actions. The only laws you should obey are the laws of your country. Spirituality is meant to discover, not to enslave.

The Mahajrya welcomes those who wish to join and help in our mission. Here are the advantages of being a member of the Mahajrya:

Advantages:

  • Training in meditation and spiritual practices
  • Be a part of a community that share spiritual views
  • Receive spiritual guidance when needed



5 MASTERS

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:
“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.
Amen”


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. Maha considers himself to be just another human being, and does not pretend to be equal to the four masters mentionned above. He is the fifth master of the Mahajrya simply for founding it, and for bringing all this wisdom together. While he founded the Mahajrya philosophy, he does not own or operate the Mahajrya Buddhist Tradition.

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 (Grand Master) of the Buddhism tradition known as Mahajrya (the “Great Field” of consciousness).  

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.
