Do you have any interest in the Buddha of the future, Meitreya?

Some people that are interested in Buddhism seem to gravitate toward the belief in Maietrya, some do not. Just as there are some, like my Mother-in-law, who are deeply involved with Kwan Yin.

I personally have never heard my Buddhist friend speak of Maitereya, it could be seen as similar to the second coming of Jesus
My Chinese Teacher is a big fan of Kwan Yin.

Maitreya is the Buddha of the future.
I know a Japanese Buddhist woman. I asked her a few days ago if she knew Maitreya. She claimed she never had. So I showed her 2 statues of the Japanese version of Maitreya. We departed and when I saw her the next day, she claimed she does believe in Maitreya.
