Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Cultivating the same qualities that mystics throughout the ages have taught, these stories of Jizo demonstrate the value of selflessness, compassionate action and fearlessness. Jizo Bodhisattva is the showing of the way, the support we need to do it ourselves, the compassionate voice in our heart and in the heart of all things. Truly mystics will recognize the immortal spirit of wisdom incarnate in Jizo Bodhisattva and scholars will welcome Chozen Roshi's addition to the field of Buddhist studies.
