  • Miroku is the "Buddha of the Future"; seated in traditional half-lotus position, with right foot on left knee; touching right cheek as if pondering ways to save people in the future. Jizo vowed to remain on earth doing good deeds until the advent of Miroku in the distant future; see Miroku Top Page for more details.
  • Jizo Bodhisattva (Sanskrit = Ksitigarbha) is one of Japan's most beloved deities; carries six-ringed staff in right hand to protect people in all six realms of rebirth; in left hand holds wish-granting jewel; shakes staff to awaken us from delusion, to help us break free of six states of rebirth and attain enlightenment; jewel bestows blessings on all who suffer; it grants wishes, pacifies desires, and brings clear understanding of Buddhist Law. See Jizo Top Page for details.
