MILOFO/ MAITREYA
Milefo (chin.)/ Hotei (jap.)/ or Budai (chin.) (literally canvas bag), Kalki in Hindi, Miruk in Korean, Maidari in Mongolian, Byams-pa or Chem-pa in Tibetan. also nicknamed Luohan (罗汉, luóhàn, "Arhat"), because he would have reached this stage.
He is one of the best-known historical figures in Europe. This is the monk Qici, monk Ch'an, born in Fenghua in Zhejiang province during the Liang dynasty after the tenth century.
Considered in Mahayana as an incarnation of the Buddha of the future Maitreya.
He is often represented bald, ears with very long lobes (sign of high spirituality) smiling, with a huge belly, the stomach being the seat of the spirit, this protuberant belly being an allegory of his big heart. He holds a mala in his right hand while leaning on a large bag.
His full belly and his smile are guarantees of happiness and prosperity, as well as his bag that is claimed to be inexhaustible.
The story goes that he took the broken toys of the children to fix them, that's why he can be represented with little ones all around him.
Milefo is said to have died in meditation at Yuelin Temple in his home province in 916, uttering these words: "This Maitreya is the true Maitreya, He is present in billions of forms; He shows himself constantly, but no one recognizes him. ». It was claimed to have seen him after his death, pious images of him began to circulate.
He is taken up in Taoism as the god of contentment and abundance. Integrated into the Japanese Shinto pantheon as one of the 7 deities of happiness
