Second Coming

The prophecies of a Second Coming are various and span across many religions and cultures.

Most notable is the Christian and Muslim belief in the return of Jesus Christ. Another is Maitreya (Pali: Metteyya), a bodhisattva, prophesied by Gautama Buddha to be the next Buddha who will return to restore Buddhism when it becomes lost or corrupt.
