Earth Store Bodhisattva or simply Ksitigarbha, is a bodhisattva who vowed to release all beings in the Hell until the Hell is empty. Ksitigarbha also helps save beings from natural disasters or accidents or any tragedy related to earth. It is extremely beneficial to chant his mantra during All Souls Days (or Ching Ming) festival and Hungry Ghost (or Ullambana) festival.
Besides, Ksitigarbha mantra also about filial piety. It describe how Maudgalyana save his mother from Hell. After Maudgalyana successfully saved his mother from Hell, he vowed to become Earth Store Bodhisattva to help save all beings from Hell. Ksitigarbha once vowed that :
“Until the hells are empty, I vow not to become a Buddha: only after all beings are saved, will I myself realize Bodhi.”
Because these endless vows, like the earth are durable and solid, and because they are also like fertile soil, can grow all manner of goodness in the world, so he is known as Earth store Bodhisattva.
