The name Maitreya (Metteyya in Pāli) is derived from the Sanskrit word maitrī (Pāli: mettā) meaning "loving-kindness", which is in turn derived from the noun mitra (Pāli: mitta) in the sense of "friend".

    Stunning composition, Lynn .. selections in tone and B&W hold the eye to the 'emotion' as much as the detail!
