Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Sutra

In terms of stopping disasters and fulfilling wishes, it is stated by the compassionate Buddha Shakyamuni that praying for just one moment to Kishtigharba Bodhisattva is more effective than praying to other great bodhisattvas for many eons. Therefore, it is extremely beneficial for us to learn the Original Vows of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Sutra in order to develop a strong devotion towards Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva—the wish-fulfilling jewel. Devotion to Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva can accomplish all of our goals; those as noble as reaching the highest attainment of buddhahood or taking rebirth in the western pure realm of Sukhavati, and those as ordinary as gaining bountiful food and sustenance, good fortune, renown, and the fulfillment of wishes.
