In the Chinese Mahayana tradition, Ksitigarbha is known as Di Zang Wang Pu Sa, Earth-Store bodhisattva or Earth Treasure Bodhisattva. Also known as the “King of Great Vow,” he famously made the great vow, “If the hell is not empty, I shall not attain buddhahood.” His great vows are recorded in the popular sutra, Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Sutra.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche recommends reciting the Ksitigarbha mantra and doing his practice to improve health and financial problems and also to avert disasters, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and fires.
Benefits of relying on Ksitigarbha:
“This practice is especially beneficial for those who have insurmountable problems, serious health problems, difficulties in big projects and financial difficulties. I suggest they should recite either the long or the short mantra every day for protection, or at least four or five times or more, depending on the magnitude of the problems. This practice is also effective for people who want a good yield of their crops, and protection of their harvest and land. In the Ten-Wheel Sutra of the bodhisattva Ksitigarbha are explained the extensive benefits that can definitely fill up the sky.
“By making offerings to bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, whatever prayers you make become most unbelievably powerful—a hundred million times more powerful for success, and it is much more powerful than praying to other bodhisattvas. It is the most unbelievable for great success to happen as quickly as possible.”
