He is known as Di Zhang Bodhisattva in Chinese, Ksitigarbha in Sanskrit, and Jizo Bosatsu in Japanese. The Di Zhang has a great vow to not achieve Buddhahood until “all the Hells are empty”. But his vow actually encompasses all sentient beings and to save sentient beings, even if he has to suffer retribution. The popularity of Di Zhang is next to Kwan Yin among the Chinese. He carries with him the ALARM STAFF, considered as a symbol of goodwill, compassion and care. It sends out the message of how precious every living creature is and none should be sacrificed. One can display the statue to suppress Quarrelsome Star #3. The Alarm Staff is not a weapon. Instead it is a staff with rounded loops at the top with jingling rings that symbolizes peace, harmony and respect for all living realms. Its jingling rings are said to produce hyms that creates awareness. It is one of the eighteen treasures of Buddhism. It is normally carried by high practising buddhist monks (close to sainthood) to clear the pathway and warn small creatures (such as creeping life like ants) to make way so that they will not be stepped and killed. In ancient Sanskrit, it is called the “Khakhara” or “Hikile”. This staff reminds those practising Buddhism to abstain from killing. If one feels that the energy in the home is overly quarrelsome, quickly invite this Buddha as antidote.
