1.Basic Information about kishimojin Temple
“Kishimojin” is enshrined as a bodhisattva without horns.
Kshimoji was a Goddess who was feared and hated by people because she took and ate the infants in the neighborhood.
Shaka hid her youngest child.
Shaka warned, “It’s like losing only one child out of a thousand. What is it like when you eat a child, the mourning of your parents?”
There she realized for the first time her mistakes.
After that, she vowed to become a god of childbirth and child-rearing, and became revered by people.
The word “鬼” has horns (upper part), but the “demon” of the Kishimojin has no horns on it.
