Maitreya, Bodhisattva (Tibetan: cham pa. English: the One of Love), currently residing in the Tushita heaven, the next Buddha to appear in the world.
"With the fire of great love burning the fuel of anger, the light of pristine awareness removes the darkness of ignorance; heir to the Conqueror's Dharma, upcoming leader of beings; to the one residing in Tushita, I bow." (Sakya liturgical verse).
