This character means wisdom and it appears in the name of the jizo-bodhisattva ‘Daichimyodai-gongen’ who is the deity of Ryobu-shugo – Shinto and Buddhist syncretism. The character for wisdom, which appears in the name of the God, means to understand oneself, decide between right and wrong, and to get rid of one’s bonnou, or defilements. This is the wish of the jizo-bodhisattva.
