Abstract現存北朝至唐初佛教造像中,在佛座兩側有五十多組執雀外道和持骷髏外道,持骷髏外道已經確定為鹿頭梵志,而執雀外道一般比定為"婆藪仙",但存在許多疑點。本文從《俱舍論記》等佛教文獻中查得執雀外道是裸形外道尼乾子,而非"婆藪仙"。尼乾子執雀問佛生死,佛以無言對待挑戰;鹿頭梵志持羅漢骷髏難定因果輪回,佛為解答,顯示佛的智慧與佛法的精深,因而在佛教造像中廣泛存在。

Among the existent images in Buddhist arts from period of the Northern Dynasties to Early Tang,there are more than 50 pairs of images flanking Buddha s throne whose hand holding a bird and a skull respectively.The one holding a skull has been identified as Mrgasirsa,while the other has a bird in his hand is commonly known as Vasistha,but there are some doubts about the figure.This paper suggests that the figure probable is the one naked and heretics Nirgrantha-putra rather than Vasistha.The conclusion was made based on Buddhist textual research, as No tice on Abhidharmakosasastra. Nirgranthaputra, according to the text, the o ne held a bird was asking Buddha quest ion about life and death, Buddha responded with silence while Mrgasirsa held the skull was wondering how to determine the Karma and transmigration of the arhats, Buddha answered his quest ion. This description answering to the profundity of Buddha's wisdom and law, thus was adopted and represented in Buddhist arts extensively.
