Resource Toolbox

is, in Japanese mythology, an embodiment of the goddess Amida. She is represented with a multitude of hands, each holding a different object, probably things useful to men, whom she has undertaken to make happy. Her temples are splendid, of extraordinary dimensions, and filled with idols: 33,333 are said to be contained in the temple of Miako; hence its name, San mun San Tsin, which signifies the temple of the 33,333 images. A large number of children are represented around her in her pictures: they are the gods themselves looking up to her with love and veneration.
