Akashagarbha is the protector of people born under the sign of buffalo and tiger.
It is one of the eight great boddhisattva of vajrayana. and one of the thirteen Buddhas of the Japanese Tantric School Shingon. Its name is made up of 'unlimited space', and garbha, 'matrix'. invoked to develop wisdom.
Its cult has been maintained mainly in Japan.
The essence of the ether is the essence of ether and belongs on the mandalas to the ratna family (jewel). According to the Akashagarbha Soutra, he is prayed eastwards while waiting for dawn (arua) which is his manifestation. It is also said that the moon, the sun and the stars are its manifestations. Given that part of its name may have the meaning of "heaven," some have suggested seeing a celestial or stellar deity at the origin of bodhisattva.
This bodhisattva is associated with a memory-enhancing ritual described in the Bodhisattva's Soutra, which was introduced to Japan during the Nara period (645-794). Even today, many recite his mantra in the hope of revitalizing a failing memory. On the island of Honshu, children used to pay tribute to Kokuzo on their thirteenth birthday to seek improvements in their intellectual abilities. We also pray for manual skill in the process of being used; he is considered the patron saint of craftsmen.
Apart from its utilitarian aspects, Kokuzô's mantra also has a spiritual effect. It is recited to develop wisdom. Kukai, founder of Shingon Buddhism, made several times his particular asceticism, the "Goumanji" 100-day ritual consisting of repeating the mantra a million times in isolation. At the end of the 10th, it is said that the star of dawn, symbolized by the bodhisattva, went down to blend into him, bringing him enlightenment.
Last on the list of thirteen Buddhas of the Shingon current, 'K-agarbha' also closes the cycle of funeral rituals by presiding over the last commemorative ceremony 32 years after the death.
It also has some importance in Nichiren Buddhism. The Seicho-ji (Kiyosumi-dera), a temple where the founder of the current studied, was built around a statue of this bodhisattva. According to the Gosho, a collection of his writings, Nichiren saw Kokûzô one day appear before him and then change into an old monk who gave him a pearl of wisdom.
