The Buddha and the Taoism

Master 0sifu Folktale The Buddha and the Taoism

Master 0sifu Folktale: The Buddha and the Taoism

In the past, there were two clay idols in a temple. On the left was the idol of Tai Shang Lao Jun, the founder of Taoism, and on the right the idol of Sakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism.

从前,有一座寺庙,里面供奉着两座泥像,左边是道祖太上老君像,右边是佛祖释迎牟尼像。

 

One day, a monk saw the two idols in the temple. He was displeased and said: “The power of Buddha is infinite. How can we condescend to allow the idol of Sakyamuni to be placed on the right of that of Tai Shang Lao Jun?”

一天,有个和尚看见庙中的这两座像,心里很不高兴,说:“我们佛法广大无边,怎么能让佛祖屈居在老君的右边呢?”

 

So the monk moved the Buddhist idol to the left of the Taoist idol.

于是,和尚动手把佛像搬到了老君像的左边。

 

Shortly afterwards, there came a Taoist priest. When he saw the situation, he felt offended and said: “Our Taoist doctrine is the highest and unsurpassed. How can we condescend to allow the Taoist idol to be placed on the right of the Buddhist idol?”

不久,来了个道士,看见这种情形很是气恼,说:“我们道教至高无上,怎么能让老君像屈居在佛像的右边呢?”

 

So the Taoist priest moved the Taoist idol to the left of the Buddhist idol at once.

于是,道士立刻动手把老君像搬到了佛像的左边。

 

Thus, the monk and the Taoist priest kept on moving the two idols right and left until the idols were broken into pieces in the end.

就这样,和尚跟道士不停地搬来搬去,最后竟将这两座泥像都搬碎了。
