Jizo Bodhisattva is one of the most beloved and revered Bodhisattvas in Mahayana Buddhism. Jizo is the embodiment of the Bodhisattva Vow, the aspiration to save all beings from suffering. He is the protector of women, children, and travellers in the six realms of existence.

The function of this great Bodhisattva is to guide travelers in both the physical and spiritual realms. In Japan, it is customary to place statues of Jizo at the intersections of roads and paths so the correct way will be chosen.

Jizo is special to pregnant women and to those whose children have died. Offerings are made by parents to thank Jizo for saving their children from serious illness.

Many Buddhist practitioners find Jizo practice helpful for remembering the Bodhisattva vow, as well as for healing our minds and hearts in times of grief and loss.
