Sho-Kannon is treated as a special Buddhist image in both of Kenkyo (Exoteric Buddhism) and Mikkyo (Esoteric Buddhism). It is differentiated from other transformations of Kannon Bosatsu (Kannon Bodhisattva). It is also called Kanzeon Bosatsu or Kanjizai Bosatsu. These names in Japanese mean that Sacred Kannon always listens to voices from the bottom of heart of all living things, and that it widely observes the world to save them. Sho-Kannon is the most important Buddhist image representing “Jihi” (Deep compassion) of Buddhism. The statue of Sho-Kannon of Daianji was made of a single piece of wood (Kaya in Japanese) and it is combined with the pedestal. With its mild mannered face, broad shoulders, and sturdy body, this statue gives an impression of a feeling of security, peace and calm. Though nothing is left in the left hand, it is taking the form of Yogan-in (Wish-granting mudra) by the right hand. It is said that the double-barreled beautiful ornaments, String beads and Neckless patterns, of the portion of its breast represents a style of dressing up by ladies in Changan in the Tang Dynasty.
