A Bodhisattva is one who devotes his or her life to
freeing others from suffering.
Bodhisattvas are not
worshipped, but are an inspiration to awaken to the qualities of an
enlightened being that are inherent in everyone.
Jizo is the
bodhisattva who plunges fearlessly into any place or situation to help
those in need.
Jizo specializes in helping women, children, and those who travel,
on both physical and spiritual paths. Jizo embodies the qualities of
benevolence, determination, and unflagging optimism.
as an excerpt from Chozen's new book.
The Zen Community of
Oregon handmakes garden and altar size statues of Jizo Bodhisattva. The
garden size Jizo is pictured above, with a view from the window of
our workshop in the forests of northern Oregon.
