→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: SEVENTH BUDDHIST COUNCIL IN 2014. WAS THIS REAL?
vertical line Posted on Oct.29.2018 @ 05:10AM EDT by tanj91
Hey Guys I was surfing on the net and came across this page on Seventh Buddhist Council https://maitriyana.com/2016/09/03/seventh-buddhist-council/, got interested in it. Seemed like a spot where all the intellectuals will be coming together.

Started googling on it and found wikipedia only mentions 6 councils, just wondering till now the news must have spread about such a grand thing, still its not mentioned anywhere on the net. It seems to be organized by World Association of Buddhism (WBA) and was preside over by Master Maitreya Buddha and Master Yan Maitri-Shi. These names are quite unknown among the Buddhist scholars, just wanted to know if it was a real thing.

Google results show that they are running an organization by the name United Buddhists Nations Organization https://buddhistnations-gov.net/ and one International Buddhist Ethics Committtee
and is based out in multiple countries Argentina, Hong Kong, Japan etc.

Just wanted to know how real it is

vertical line Wow! I'm seeing this multiple times on the interwebs. It's scary how many people are being affected by this UBNO/UBNU united buddhist nations organisation. Sorry to hear that you're another victim of these individuals or organisations; International Buddhist Ethics Committtee, Master Maitreya Buddha or Master Yan Maitri-Shi. Please be safe. The journey of true wisdom is fraught with danger in these times. Please do your diligent research and look for bonafide organisations to trust. This is not the only forum where there are complaints against these people. International Buddhist Ethics Committtee is not real and you will be better off studying at genuine sites like Journal of Buddhist Ethics

This is heights. 7th Buddhist Council hahahha. Can't believe it, this is one big yarn.
1st Buddhist Council - 483BC
2nd Buddhist Council - 383BCE
3rd Buddhist Council - 250BC
4rth Buddhist Council - 72AD
5th Buddhist Council - 1871
6th Buddhist Council - 1954

All these Buddhist councils were held under the patronage of a king or under a kingdom. You can see how rare a Buddhist council is, so if something like this happens in these times of Internet how big a coverage it will get.
This is a yarn, in these days anyone can post anything on the internet and claim to reach on Mars. But the information needs to be properly cross checked before acceptance.
If you just look at their link for the council its just full of jargon and useless text.
Even their organization UBNO(United Buddhist Nations Organization) seems like a diploma mill. Even their main leader Maitreya Samyaksambuddha seems like a fake. If you look at the degrees and the qualifications he claims in his bio at https://maitriyana.in/master-maitreya-samyaksambuddha/ one would just laugh i

RECTOR and FOUNDER of Maitriyana Buddhist University seems more like a self proclaimed institution without any afflicaton anywhere.

So just beware of just fakes everywhere and properly look at the entire information.
