法華經變〈藥草喻品〉 莫高窟第23窟 北壁 盛唐 畫的上方是〈藥草喻品〉,繪畫了雨中耕作的景象,一個農夫正在田裡揮鞭趕牛;另一個農夫則冒雨擔肩挑物,其間穿插了農婦送飯,親切地看著父子二人捧飯而食的片段。畫上方的大片烏雲和雨滴,正呼應〈藥草喻品〉中「密雲彌布遍覆三千大千世界……一雨所潤,而諸草木各有差別」的經文,意謂天降雨水,是一視同仁地滋養萬物,但草木卻因各自大小而接收不同份量的滋養。畫中的雲雨比喻佛陀對眾生平等地說法,而眾生會像草木一樣,所得會因應其本質的差異而有別。 下方是〈方便品〉的畫面,田間禾木茂盛,左下方有一塔,塔前有一人在跪地禮拜,一人則在跳舞。六個樂伎席地而坐,手持各種樂器作音樂供養,表達了〈方便品〉經文所述,若有人禮拜佛塔,或在塔前以音樂來供養佛和歌頌佛的德行,都是功德,可以成佛。畫中四個胖娃娃在堆沙,亦喻意經文「聚沙成塔」的佛理,意指即使微小的行為都能具成佛的因緣。
