The Question of Maitreya

What qualities does a bodhisattva need in order to attain enlightenment quickly?

In "The Question of Maitreya," recently translated by 84000 into English, the Buddha highlights several sets of qualities needed for swift liberation, the most important of which is the genuine wish for the enlightenment of all beings. The aspirations Maitreya makes as a result of his interchange with the Buddha are set out in the famous “Prayer of Maitreya” for which this sūtra is perhaps best known.
