Who is Jizo?
Jizo is revered in Buddhism as the protector of all those who suffer. When we wear a Jizo pendant, we may feel more grounded, whatever the day brings, as we awaken our Jizo-nature.
Who is Chibi?
Chibi is Japanese for “little one” and represents the child in all of us. Chibi reminds us to care for our inner child by placing it in Jizo’s care.
