      Hi,

      Question 1

      Contemplation Sutra
      Part 1, No.7

      Then the World-Honored One said: 'Now do you not know, Vaidehi, that Buddha
      Amitayus is not very far from here?

      Amitabha Sutra
      "Passing from here through hundreds of thousands of millions of Buddha-lands
      to the West, there is a land called Ultimate Bliss. In this land, at this
      moment, a Buddha named Amitabha teaches the Dharma.

      How come? Amitabha Sutra says that the land is very far, but Contemplation
      Sutra says it is not very far.
      Is sukhavati another planes of existence or is it on the same universe as
      us?

      ======

      Question 2

      A friend asked:
      Amitabha is not Maitreya.Where does the Buddhist Scriptures?

      =====

      Question 3

      Maitreya does not mean kindness, it means friend or loving friend.
      Is this right?

      Thank you,
      Wynn
