A Shoukannzeon-Bosatsu statue in the garden of Tokei-ji temple

Sho-kanzeon-Bosatsu is sitting on a lotus flower which symbolizes the land of happiness of Buddhism.

This Bosatsu is one metamorphosis of the goddess of mercy in Buddhism and holds a lotus bud in her left hand and opens the palm of her right hand to display spiritual encouragement and great mercy to every living being.

This Bosatsu performs infinite mercy to save every living being from suffering infernal pains on the dark floor of Hell.
