Each zodiac has designated a deity who will offer special attention and help to the particular zodiac to provide great power in clearing obstacles and inviting wealth from endless resources. The Ox’s guardian deity is Akasagarbha whose miraculous energy helps eliminate disasters, lighten problems, attract good fortune and bring good health. No effort will be spared to look after the well-being of the Ox who falls under his special protection and guardianship.
This is a lovely emblem of Akasagarbha (or Xu Kong Zang Pusa in Chinese) who is more famously known as the twin brother of Ksitigarbha. It is carved from pristine white coral which is considered magical in the realm of crystals and gemstones, associated with emotional healing and protection. The Bodhisattva symbolizes the “vast and boundless” Buddha wisdom that permeates the universe. Believers pray to him to grant them wisdom in their quest toward enlightenment. Akasagarbha personifies infinitely vast wisdom and compassion as they are said to be as boundless as the sky. As befitting the protector/charge relationship, the Ox is shown in complete repose at the foot of Akasagarbha, calm and relaxed, knowing that he is being watched over by heavenly eyes.
If you are an Ox (what is my Chinese zodiac?), make sure you enjoy the protection of your guardian deity by wearing or having the Akasagarbha Pendant near you at all times. You may also display the amulet in the North East, hang it in the bedroom or keep it together with personal belongings.
