Maitreya and the Wheel-turning King

Author:

A Anālayo

Abstract

The following offers a translation of the sixth discourse in the Chinese Dīrgha-āgama, parallel to the twenty-sixth discourse in the Dīgha-nikāya, the Cakkavatti-(sīhanāda-)sutta, and the seventieth discourse in the Madhyama-āgama, the Discourse on the Wheelturning King. After translating the Dīrgha-āgama version, I study its prediction of the future advent of the Buddha Maitreya.
