Jizo, Protector of Travelers, Women and Children
Jizo is the embodiment of the Bodhisattva Vow, the aspiration to save all beings from suffering. He is the protector of women, children, and travelers in the six realms of existence. He guides travelers in both the physical and spiritual realms. Jizo is often depicted as a child-monk, or as a pilgrim carrying a staff with six jingling rings to announce his friendly approach. He is sometimes shown holding the "Dharma Jewel," the calming light which banishes all fear.
Jizo practice helps pregnant women and grieving parents who have lost a child.
