Maitreya Bodhisattva,弥勒菩萨

弥勒菩萨像; 中国江西景德镇陶瓷

弥勒菩萨偈:

眼前都是有缘人、相见相亲、何不满腔欢喜

世上尽多难奈事、自作自受、何妨大肚包容

弥勒菩萨亦称布袋和尚,他满脸欢笑,到处随缘,接受一切难堪苦恼,好像大肚子里完全容纳,所以连小孩子都喜欢跟随着他,往身上爬,向袋中拿取食物,因此,每到一处,成为一班孩童跟随相拥的对象。

佛像众多造型中,有些是身上有五個孩童,亦就是布袋和尚;俗称多仔佛,五個小孩在佛经含義乃表法: 色、受、想、行、識五蘊。阐述内在生命流转之过程; 人的心中有;喜、怒、哀、乐、爱、欲、恶、等,都應該處之泰然,勇敢面對,就像布袋和尚終日笑嘻嘻地,做個開心、快活、樂觀、豁達的人。
