Common Fengshui Mistakes (97) Please remove all Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva artworks and statues from your home

Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Painting

Before we go into the topic of removing Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Di Zhang Wang) artworks, paintings and statues from your home, we need to understand the history of this god.

Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva is a powerful god revered in Asian Buddhism. Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva is known for his vow to take responsibility for the instruction of all beings in the six worlds between the death of Gautama (Sakyamuni) Buddha and the rise of Maitreya Buddha, as well as his vow not to achieve Buddhahood until all hells are emptied. He is therefore often regarded as the bodhisattva of hell beings, as well as the guardian of children and patron deity of deceased children and aborted fetuses in Japanese culture.

If your home is clean and harmonious, you should never invite Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva into your home. Wandering spirits will flock to homes with Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s statues, seeking his help in addressing their grievances and hardships. Some Fengshui “masters” advise people to wear Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva amulets for hardship endurance. This will actually make problems worse as the amulets also attract wandering spirits.

The solution is simple. Remove all Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva paintings or statues and donate them to a nearby temple. Invite the Goddess Guan Yin (who is also a bodhisattva) into your home for praying. Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva statues (with his god inside) should be installed outside of home compounds at roadside to reduce accidents and ward off evil. If you really need to pray to Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, go to his temple to offer incense and prayers.
