A Buddhist monk pays respect to the victims of March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami in front of the ruined disaster control center of Minamisanriku town, Miyagi Prefecture, northeastern Japan, on September 11, 2011. The facility destroyed by the tsunami became a place to remember the disaster after its 20 staff members, including a young woman who had been urging residents to flee from the tsunami through a public-address system until the last moment, were washed away and killed.

Sofukuji, Nagasaki
All beings since their first aspiration till the attainment of Buddhahood are sheltered under the guardianship of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas who, responding to the requirements of the occasion, transform themselves and assume the actual forms of personality.

Thus for the sake of all beings Buddhas and Bodhisattvas become sometimes their parents, sometimes their wives and children, sometimes their kinsmen, sometimes their servants, sometimes their friends, sometimes their enemies, sometimes reveal themselves as devas or in some other forms.
