Ksiddigarbha or Ksitigarbha is one of the four principal bodhisattvas in East Asian Mahayana Buddhism. Known as Di-Zang Pu Sa in Chinese, Ksiddigarbha is usually depicted as a monk holding a six ring alarm staff and flaming red fireball to dispel the darkness of the infernal realm. He is famed and revered for his great vow to help beings in all realms to gain enlightenment before he would become a Buddha, that is to abstain Buddhahood until "...all sentient beings have all been liberated from sufferings" and "all the Hells are empty". Full of limitless compassion, Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha is widely worshipped in China and Japan. It is believed that one can recite this Bodhisattva's name continuously to purify karma and be untouched by any sort of evil.
Meanwhile, the Three Celestial Guardians are the most well-known remedy for the 3 Killings (Sarm Saat) or Triple Conflicts which brings three types of harm.
