Kshitigarbha (Sanskrit: क्षितिगर्भ Kṣitigarbha) is an important bodhisattva in the Mahayana tradition especially in China, Korea and Japan. The name may be translated as Earth Matrix, or Earth Store. Kshitigarbha is known for his vow not to achieve Buddhahood until all hells are emptied and carries a staff to force open the gates of hell. He is therefore often regarded as the bodhisattva of hell beings and the guardian of children who died before their parents.
