As already learned by me that among Japanese Buddhists, Kshitigarba (how good I know no other language except of English) is known inter alia as helping the wicked, and sometimes holds in his left hand an orb. That's what I like about the Orb is that No Sounds Are Out of Bounds. What may be quite enticing for substantial part of Japanese Buddhists.
