Description

Samantabhadra, is one of the four major Bodhisattvas in Buddhism. Samantabhadra is the patron saint of those born with the Zodiac of the Dragon or Snake.

Samantabhadra Bodhisattva symbolizes the virtue of attaining wisdom. The word Samanta means, “universally extending.” Bhadra means “great virtue.” This Bodhisattva is portrayed riding on a six-tusked white elephant. The six tusks represent overcoming attachment to the six senses. They also represent the Six Perfection’s (paramitas)- charity, morality, patience, diligence, contemplation, and wisdom – or the six ways in which the bodhisattvas pursue their spiritual cultivation so that they may attain enlightenment and save other living creatures. Those who follow Bodhisattva Samantabadhra would gradually receive his blessing and would become energetic and persistent in their practice of the six paramitas.

Like the Manjusri Bodhisattva, Samantabhadra Bodhisattva is the assistant of Shakyamuni Buddha, and it is suitable to place all three of them together. It is recommended to place Shakyamuni Buddha in the center, and the two bodhisattvas to the left and right of Shakyamuni Buddha.

普贤菩萨, 汉传佛教四大菩萨之一,是属龙和属蛇的守护神,也是农历三、四月出生者的守护佛。祂象征理德、行德,与文殊菩萨的智德、正德相对应,是娑婆世界释迦牟尼佛的右、左胁侍,被称为「华严三圣」。普贤菩萨的法像一般为戴五佛冠金色身,右手持莲花或玉如意,左手结施愿印,半跏趺坐于六牙白象之上。六根象牙代表六度:布施、持戒、忍辱、精进、禅定、智慧。

“东亚有四个著名的菩萨。每一个都像征着佛陀对佛法修行的不同层面。分别是观世音菩萨的同情心,文殊菩萨的智慧,普贤菩萨的修行和地藏菩萨的誓言。通过普贤菩萨著名的十大行愿反映了祂的修行。

普贤十大行愿是:(一)礼敬诸佛,(二)称赞如来,(三)广修供养,(四)忏悔业障,(五)随喜功德,(六)请转法轮,(七)请佛住世,(八)常随佛学,(九)恒顺众生,(十)普皆回向。如果想成就如来的功德门,就应该修习十种广大行愿。

像文殊菩萨一样,普贤菩萨是释迦牟尼佛的助手,所以很适合将3尊摆放在一起。建议将释迦牟尼佛置于中央位置,两位菩萨则摆放于佛的左右手边即可。
