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).”
