MIKAERI AMIDA / Tana Cocoro / Buddhist Statues figure, by Isumu

Heian period (late 12th century)
Mikaeri Amida appears before those who call upon him at the moment of death and bring them to Sukhavati.
According to legend, one day a monk called Yokan was chanting the nianfo around an Mikaeri Amida, he witnessed the statue move down from its pedestal. It then looked back over his shoulder and told Yokan standing paralized in surprize: “Y?kan ososhi (You are slow, Yokan).”

阿弥陀如来は臨終の際に極楽浄土へのお迎えに現れます。
あるとき、永観というお坊さんが念仏行道をしていると、阿弥陀像が台座から降りてきました。永観が驚きのあまり立ち尽くしていると、阿弥陀様は肩越しに「永観おそし」と言って振り返りました。それがありがたくてその姿を仏像にしたのです。
