Plum Gifts – Namaste Jizo Concrete Statue

This happy and content Jizo will bring a smile to all who see him. Jizo is the protector of women, children and travelers. In Japan, it is customary to place statues of Jizo at the intersections of roads and paths so the correct way will be chosen.

Jizo is now becoming better known in American Buddhism, and many Buddhist practitioners find Jizo practice helpful for remembering the Bodhisattva vow which guides our lives, as well as for healing our minds and hearts in times of grief and loss.
