Flower Glow
華光如来 (1) (Skt Padmaprabha; Jpn Keko-nyorai)

    Flower Glow Thus Come One or Flower Glow Buddha.

The name that Shariputra will bear when he attains enlightenment, according to Shakyamuni's prediction in the "Simile and Parable" (third) chapter of the Lotus Sutra. The chapter reads: "Shariputra, in ages to come, after a countless, boundless, inconceivable number of kalpas have passed, you will make offerings to some thousands, ten thousands, millions of Buddhas, and will honor and uphold the correct Law.

You will fulfill every aspect of the way of the bodhisattva and will be able to become a Buddha with the name Flower Glow Thus Come One... Your realm will be called Free from Stain, the land will be level and smooth, pure and beautifully adorned, peaceful, bountiful, and happy.... And this Flower Glow Thus Come One will employ the three vehicles to teach and convert living beings.

Shariputra, when this Buddha appears, although it will not be an evil age, because of his original vow he will preach the Law through the three vehicles. His kalpa will be called Great Treasure Adornment."

(2) (Skt unknown; Jpn Keko-nyorai): The name of a Buddha who appeared in the Glorious Kalpa, which immediately preceded the present Wise Kalpa. A thousand Buddhas are said to have appeared in succession during the Glorious Kalpa; Flower Glow Buddha is known as the first in that succession.
