Puji Temple,Four Heavenly Kings(A) 普济寺-四大天王A (210)
Zhejiang Province

四大天王:

      又称“护世天王”,俗称“四大金刚”。据古印度佛教传说,在古代人类所住世界中心有座须弥山,其山腰有一腱陀罗山,山有四峰,各护一天,掌管四大洲部、即东胜神州、南部洲、西牛贺洲、北俱卢洲的山河、森林、土地。这即四大天王的由来。

      四大天王各部下有一从者91子八大将军,辅佐四大天王守护十方。四大天王各持一法器,分别象征风调雨顺、五谷丰登、国泰民安。

      东方持国天王:白身,持有碧玉琵琶,是帝释天的主乐神,职“”;

      南方增长天王:青身,持有青光宝剑,相传他能令人“善根”增长,职“

      (“雨、顺”见:四大金刚B)

      韦驮菩萨---南方增长天王部下的八将军之一,是四大天王部下32位将军之首,常巡游东南西三洲,保护诸位出家人,有“三洲感应”之说。由于他曾为释迦牟尼从魔鬼掌中夺回佛牙有功,因而担当起保护佛塔的重任,为了方便履行职责,一般将他的像塑建在山门背后,传统的格局是与弥勒佛像背靠而塑。由此民间形成“进门拜弥勒,出门拜韦驮”的习俗。

      韦驮菩萨手中所持的法器叫金刚杵,过去,云游僧侣得先看韦驮王手中的金刚杵,然后决定去留,若杵横在胸前或举起,表示该寺为接待寺;若杵点地,则表示该寺为非接待寺。
