JAPANESE MYTHOLOGY

The Shinto and Buddhist Gods of Japan...

KISHIMO-JIN

Japanese Demonness

Also known as KARITEI-MO

The Mother of Baby-Eating Demons.

BUDDHA stopped this by hiding her only child underneath his begging bowl (he was a big beggar at the time). She was so upset when she could not find her kiddie she implored BUDDHA to help, not knowing that he was responsible.

When the kid was mysteriously found she was so grateful she vowed never to do any hurtful things to anyone ever again. Also that BUDDHA would be her best buddy, she would help old ladies and children across the road, etc etc.

KISHIMO-JIN now shuns publicity of any sort and she and her son lead a very sheltered life.
