The Buddha no longer retains a physical vehicle, but dwells on the highest centre of our planet, Shamballa, which is in matter of the two highest ethers in the Gobi desert. He acts as the ‘Divine Intermediary’ between Shamballa and Hierarchy, bringing the Plan from Shamballa to the three Great Lords of Hierarchy (the Christ, Manu, and Lord of Civilization) Who approximate it to the possible and work it out through humanity. He is the brother of Maitreya. They were among the first group of Earth humanity to ‘achieve,’ that is, take initiation, way back in early Atlantean times. They have been at the forefront of humanity ever since. The Buddha is deeply engaged in the process of Maitreya’s mission as World Teacher.
