Buddha Maitreya - Providing Services to the Omaha Homeless and Needy
In May 2020, Buddha Maitreya, the reincarnation of Jesus Christ, and his wife, Mandarava Tara, began a daily food program for the homeless/needy in the Omaha area. Three full-time volunteers initially prepared 30 sandwiches and purchased bottled water daily. They began driving through Omaha to distribute to the homeless and those in need. Coffee and snacks (nuts, fresh and dried fruit, bars etc.) were added, and in September 2020 the number of food sacks being made and delivered daily increased to 60.
In September 2020 we also increased the level of support being offered to include needed living supplies such as clothing, blankets, hygiene products, boots, shoes, hats, gloves, warm coats, tents, sleeping bags, etc. In addition Shambhala Healing Tools for Personal and Planetary Healing are given for free along with MP3 players with Soul Therapy music. These tools calm, comfort, and heal and are all individual components of a vibrational healing process called “Soul Therapy.” We ask people what they need, purchase the items, and deliver them. As we have developed relationships within the community, we have also been able to help connect vulnerable individuals with housing, mental health services, medical care, and other areas of community support.
The groups we serve include the homeless, poorly sheltered, low income, those with addiction and mental health problems, and families and others with a food gap (some directly as a result of the Coronavirus and associated lockdowns).
Each day we drive across Omaha where the homeless and vulnerable gather to support their body, mind, and spirit. The three full-time volunteers each spend an average of 6 hours per day to shop, prepare, pack, and distribute. This is done 7 days a week with community member volunteers covering every Sunday.
The local police have shared how much of a difference the service has made in the community. The street team takes video and photos daily to document the reality of their efforts, in both the administration of food and supplies as well as the growing need.
