What is your guardian deity?

Buddhist gods are full of experts! ??

In general, "God" is an almighty being who can do anything.

However, the Buddhist gods of heaven (the various gods who protect those who believe in Buddhism) are not almighty, but a group of "experts" with various fields of expertise.

It's like a human being, even though he's a god, he has strengths and weaknesses.

By knowing the Buddhist gods of heaven, you will surely find gods of heaven who will solve your worries or who will protect you from your own difficulties.

If there is a god who will be your guardian deity among the red stamps given by Myorin-ji, I think that the red stamp will be like a "talisman" that protects you.
