Another Jizo, keeping warm

Ayiii - Ojizosama kawaii desu ne!

Isn't Koya-san wonderful - I always kept being tempted to knock on Kobo Daishi's tomb where he sits in diamond meditation, and wake him & say "hi"!

(Kobo Daishi is Kukai, the great founder of Shingon buddhism: civil engineer, master of applied linguistics, mountain priest, magician, saint! Most wonderful person of Japanese origin, IMHO! He sleeps on this mountain, Mt Koya, in his great temple compex...)

Thanks Bad Aunt!!
