Tushita Heaven

Tushita Heaven (the realm of Maitreya, the Buddha of the future). The Bodhisattva in the Tushita Heaven. Prior to his final birth and enlightenment underneath the Bodhi Tree, the Bodhisattva resided in a great palace in the Tushita heaven that was full of the reverberations of eighty-four thousand musical instruments and perfumed by the scent of flower blossoms. After being consecrated, lauded, praised and glorified by a hundred thousand Devas, the voices of a hundred thousand million kotis of apsaras sang out in unison Now is the time come; let it not pass unused.
