Wonderful Adornment ［妙荘厳王］ ( Shubhavyūha; Myōshōgon-nō): A king who appears in the “King Wonderful Adornment” (twenty-seventh) chapter of the Lotus Sutra. According to that chapter, Wonderful Adornment lived in the age of a Buddha named Cloud Thunder Sound Constellation King Flower Wisdom. Though a believer in Brahmanism, he went to see the Buddha at the urging of his wife Pure Virtue and his two sons Pure Storehouse and Pure Eye, and made various offerings to him. The Buddha prophesied that the king would become a monk, attain enlightenment, and become a Buddha named Sal Tree King. Wonderful Adornment then abdicated the throne in favor of his brother, joined the Buddhist Order with his wife, two sons, and his former subjects, and devoted himself to the practice of the Lotus Sutra. In the final part of the chapter, Shakyamuni identifies King Wonderful Adornment with Bodhisattva Flower Virtue who is present in the assembly on Eagle Peak listening to the preaching of the Lotus Sutra.
