अर्हत बकुला

“अरहत” भनेको ज्ञान र भौतिकवादी बन्धन, चाहनाहरुबाट स्वतन्त्र भएको हो। भिक्षुहरू जो अरहट छन् पुनर्जन्म हुन वाट मुक्त हुन्छन। अरहट बकुला सोह्र जना ठूला जेठो भिक्षुहरूमध्ये नवौ भिक्षु हुन्। यी महान भिक्षुहरूको चित्रण बौद्ध कलामा चित्रण गरिएको पाइन्छ। अरहत बकुला ध्यानको स्थानमा बसेको, उनको दाहिने हातले मोती समातेको र देब्रे हातमा न्याउरे मुसा बोकेको पाइन्छ।
