FROM THE GARDEN OF ZEN
My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen
February 24, 2011
Ume (Japanese apricot) flowers and a Jizo-bosatsu image in Engaku-ji
The Ume flowers were presented as an offering to the little stone statue of Jizo-bosatsu that was basking in the spring sun.
Jizo-bosatsu is the Buddhist guardian deity of stray travelers and children and is believed to descend into Hell by himself for rescuing them from there.
