      This is the bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (Dizangwang pusa) (Jizo bosatsu) (Jijang bosal) (Dia tang vu'o'ng bo tat) ("Earth Treasury", the Savior of the Dead), the Buddhist deity to whom one of the 4 great Buddhist sacred mountains (Si da fo shan) in China, Mt. Jiuhua (Jiuhuashan) in Anhui province, eastern China, is dedicated. He is almost always shown with his alarm staff with jangling rings in his right hand & a pearl or round jewel in his left hand. The round object often has a noticeable point at the top of it. He is usually dressed as a monk, either bald or when seated, wearing a 5-Buddha crown showing the 5 Dhyani Buddhas. His great vow was to take responsibility for the further teaching of all beings who die in the era between the death of Gautama Buddha & the appearance in the world of Maitreya, the Future Buddha. He does this to help the dead escape the suffering of more lives in samsara, the 6 modes of beings in the wheel of un-enlightened life. For this reason, in Mahayana temples in Chinese communities, there is usually a special shrine area established for him around which yellow slips are posted with the names of the deceased. In Japan, he is also regarded as a patron saint of children, travellers, & firefighters. In Japan, sometimes a bib is put on him to symbolize his compassion for children.
