According to the sutras, even though two thousand years have passed, several of the Buddha’s disciples still live amongst us. Mahakyasyapa, one of the Buddha’s top disciples, in deep meditation inside Kukkutapada mountain, guarding the Buddha’s robe. He is waiting for the birth of Maitreya Buddha fifty-six trillion and seven hundred million years from now. He will present the robe, which represents the correct Dharma of the previous Buddha, to Maitreya Buddha for the sake of continuously spreading the teachings.
I would like to know what is the source of this affirmation? And if this is true, why nobody has find him or is in a state invisible to physical eyes?
Thanks! And sorry for my lazy questions
