The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!

According to the prophecy of the monk Mogaliputta Tissa, a bodhisattva was going to
set in motion the Dhamma wheel once again from Jambudīpa 2,500 years after the
mahāparinibbāna of Gotama the Buddha. What was the year and who was that bodhisattva?

Who was that bodhisattva? The truth is that now the dhammacakka has started,
Dhamma has started. That is all. Why worry about who started it? Then you may
start paying respect to this person, and praying and expecting something from him.

Where can this prophecy be found?
