Seishi Bosatsu

The deity is one of the Three Amida, who controls wisdom and lets ordinary people have minds for attainment of enlightenment. The reason he is holding a lotus flower is that this deity achieves the fruit of the wisdom and scatters the seed in the minds of ordinary people, moreover, he lets ordinary people raise lotus flowers(virtue, moral sense) in their mind. He saves all the ordinary people from going down to the hell or the world of hungry evils by shining them with the light of wisdom. Daiseishi means; Taisei means to control much power and might, shi means the saints are given the minds to help people attain enlightenment, these two words get together to become Taiseshi. There are various styles. Many of them are holding a lotus flower in their hands wearing the crown with a water jar.
