This child-like statue is created by the Buddha artist, Hotokeya Sakai. It is intended to heal hearts and deepen bonds for you and your loved ones, delivered with heartfelt wishes.
Since ancient times, it has been believed that having items related to the zodiac brings good luck and wards off misfortune. One of the representative items is the "Eight Guardians Buddha," commonly known as the Twelve Zodiac Amulet Main Deity. This guardian Buddha, also known as the "Generational Protector Main Deity," literally watches over our entire lives. This dedication to delivering something truly genuine led to entrusting the creation to the Hotokeya Sakai, a unit formed by a husband-and-wife team of artisans.
The completed statue receives an eye-opening ritual at Juryo-in Temple in Nagano Prefecture and is then delivered to you, imbued with spiritual blessings.
The Great Vairocana Buddha, the guardian main deity for those born in the Year of the Sheep or Monkey, forever radiates the warmth of compassion, akin to the ultimate wisdom representing the universe itself and the radiance of the sun. Through this ultimate virtue, all living beings' prayers are guided toward fulfillment. With the presence of the Great Vairocana Buddha in your vicinity, you are protected by its immense guardianship and are likely to receive universal happiness.
Hotokeya Sakai, acclaimed for its "Cat Buddha," now presents the "Child Buddha Collection," a delightful expression of the zodiac amulet main deity in a charming child form. These meticulously crafted wooden carvings of small child Buddhas feature gentle and attractive facial expressions. All statues are blessed with a revered eye-opening ritual at Juryo-in Temple.
At the historically significant lodging temple near Juryo-in Temple, the child Buddhas have been blessed through prayers, transforming them into true Buddhist statues. As a lifelong guardian Buddha to nourish your heart or to wish for the healthy growth of your children, this collection is truly a remarkable piece to acquire.
