Miroku Bosatsu is the bosatsu promised to be set to Buddha to the next of Gotama Siddhattha in Buddhism.
Miroku is foretold as a future Buddha of this world in Buddhist eschatology.
In some Buddhist literature, such as the Amitabha Sutra and the Lotus Sutra, he or she is referred to as Ajita Bodhisattva.
Miroku is a bodhisattva who in the Buddhist tradition is to appear on Earth, achieve complete enlightenment, and teach the pure dharma. According to scriptures, Miroku will be a successor of Buddha. It is found in the canonical literature of all Buddhist sects and is accepted by most Buddhists that Miroku Bosatsu will come when the Dharma will be forgotten on Earth.
