Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (地藏王菩萨)

Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (地藏王菩萨)

Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, 地藏王菩萨, the Bodhisattva of Great Aspiration, is one of the most well-known Bodhisattva in Chinese Mahayana Buddhism. He is also known as Di Zhang Wang Pusa in Chinese and commonly translated as Earth Store Bodhisattva.

The Bodhisattva is also commonly worshipped in Taoist temples especially at the ancestral halls.


The Bodhisattva is known for his great vow to help beings in all realms to gain enlightenment before he would become a Buddha. He is also tasked to teach the Dharma to all beings during the time between the passing of the historical Buddha (Gautama Buddha) and the arrival of Maitreya Buddha.


Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s great aspiration shares a common theme with other Buddhist Bodhisattvas. When Bodhisattvas made a vow, they went ahead to fulfil it with no strings attached. They are motivate by their aspirations and do not require the beings they reach out to praise them, love them or worship them. Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s great aspiration can be an inspiration for people to care for fellow beings, to make our world a better place to live in and to reach out with loving kindness but without conditions attached.
