四面佛簡介

根據佛經裡面記載,在十方佛、菩薩的世界里,遍佈無量無數億的天上人間。四面佛「大梵天王」統御欲界、初禪天界及我們居身的世界。大梵天王不僅是人類的神,也是欲界、初禪天界的一切天神。阿修羅(妖魔鬼怪)及一切世界中財富的主宰。

大梵天王(四面佛)之出身,說法很多,但根據泰國神史書記載是,當宇宙洪荒時代,安達目蒲神(創造之神) 擬造一切,遂先創造水,使地球上一片汪一洋;然後將植物播於水中,但植物卻長一隻金蛋,其後金蛋破裂,大梵天王就從蛋中出生。因大梵天王生於金蛋中,故又 有「金胎」之稱。

其後,大梵天王自分為兩部分,一為男性、一為女性,然後誕生了大自在天王,韋力王、目努薩哇珍蒲王(人類 始祖),亦即是第一位創造人類之神,於是人遂繁衍不息。可以說人類之在世界上出現,乃是大梵天王所創造者。又傳說大梵天王層創造一女子,名叫莎都芭,以協 助創造動物人類、神仙、魔鬼與各種生靈。

大梵天王(四面佛)
而現今我們所參拜之大梵天王為佛身有四首、四面、八眼、八耳、八臂。一手持令旗、一手持佛經、一手持法螺、一手持唸珠、一手持明輪、一手持權杖、一手持甘 露瓶、另一手打手印。其中,手執之法器與手印皆有其深長意義:令旗-代表萬能法力,佛經-代表智慧,法螺-代表賜福,唸珠-代表輪迴,
明輪-代表消災、降魔、驅除煩惱,權杖-代表至上成就,甘露瓶-代表有求必應,接胸手印-代表庇祐。天王之性情溫柔,充滿慈悲、仁愛、博愛、公正這四種正 直性格。佛教稱之為婆羅門的「四梵行」,也就是佛教之四無量心-慈、悲、喜、捨,所以願降福及濟助一切天神及眾生。

「四梵行」四無量心代表之意義為:

慈無量心:與大梵天王的正面 「密達」(METTA)相應,
願一切眾生皆得樂,四海之內皆兄弟,有福同享。
悲無量心:與大梵天王的右面 「噶如喇」(KARUNA) 相應,
願一切眾生離苦,濟貧恤苦,拔一切眾生苦。
喜無量心:與大梵天王左面 「摩達」(MUTHITA)相應,
見人行善離苦得樂生歡喜心,祝福眾生,有榮一同。願一切眾生離苦皆得樂。
捨無量心:與大梵天王後面 「無別迦」(UBEKKHA)相應,
修慈悲喜三梵行而不執著,恕親平等,不起愛憎,廣披澤恩。
