      传说奉化是布袋和尚成长、出家、圆寂之地。自古以来,这里都被认为是弥勒信仰的中心,全国弥勒道场。我有幸前去著名的雪窦山风景区,参观了为全球最高的铜制坐姿露天弥勒大佛。 
It is said that Fenghua was the home where Putai Hoshang (Cloth-bag Monk) grew up, became a monk and achieved Parinirvana. Since ancient times, Fenghua has been regarded as the center of worshipping and performing the rites relating to the Buddha Maitreya. I was lucky to have been to the famous Xuedou Mountain scenic spot and visited the world’s tallest seated bronze Buddha Maitreya in the open.

      雪窦山风景区位于浙江省奉化市溪口镇西北,为四明山支脉的最高峰,海拔800米,有“四明第一山”之誉。
The Xuedou Mountain scenic spot is located in the northwest of Xikou town, Fenghua City, Zhejiang Province. With an altitude of 800 meters, it is the highest peak of the branch range of Siming Mountains, and is reputed as “the first hill of Siming Mountains”.

      露天弥勒大佛坐落在雪窦寺东侧后山海拔369米山坡上,大佛身高33米,端坐于9米莲花宝座上。莲座莲之下是三层天坛造型形的建筑,总高度达56.74米。整个景区分大佛核心区、礼佛朝拜区、弥勒群雕区、文物展示区、休闲修身区、旅游购物区等6大功能区。
The Buddha Maitreya in the open air sits at the eastern back of the Xuedou Temple, which is 369 meters above the sea level. The statue is 33 meters tall, sitting on a nine-meter-high lotus throne, under which is a three-story building shaped like the Temple of Heaven with a total height of 56.74 meters. The entire scenic region has six areas according to their functions, namely, the core area of the statue, the worshipping area, the group sculptures area, the cultural relic exhibition area, the recreational area, and the shopping area.

      据介绍,整座大佛用500多吨锡青铜铸成,内部用400多吨钢骨架支撑。大佛居高临下,慈眉善目,笑容可掬,与整个山体连成一体。远远望去,弥勒大佛金光耀眼弥勒大佛金光闪耀、气势恢宏。
Introduction says that the whole statue was made of over 500 tons of tin bronze and supported by 400 tons steel bars from the inside. The kind smiling Buddha looks down from a height and incorporates with the mountain as a whole harmoniously. Seen from afar, the Buddha is magnificently glittering with light.
