(Sanskrit: क्षितिगर्भ Kṣitigarbha) is a Bodhisattva
primarily revered in East Asian Buddhism, usually depicted as a Buddhist monk in the Orient. The name may be translated as "Earth Treasury", "Earth Store", "Earth Matrix", or "Earth Womb".
Ksitigarbha is known for his vow to take responsibility for the instruction of all beings in the six worlds between the death of Gautama
(Sakyamuni) Buddha and the rise of Maitreya
Buddha, as well as his vow not to achieve Buddhahood
until all hells are emptied.
He is therefore often regarded as the Bodhisattva of hell beings, as well as the guardian of children and patron deity of deceased children and aborted fetuses in Japanese culture. Usually depicted as a monk with a nimbus around his shaved head, he carries a staff to force open the gates of hell and a wish-fulfilling jewel to light up the darkness.
