Child Giving Ginco.
Tradition holds that this tree, which stands in the courtyard of the Zoshigaya Kishimojin Temple in Tokyo, brings fertility to worshippers. Thought the goddess Kishimojin is a guardian deity of children, her backstory paints a darker picture. She fed her own offspring-possibly thousands-by devouring the children of others. To tech her a lesson, Buddha hid one of her children in an alms bowl. A distraught Kishimojin appealed to him, and he admonished her for suffering she had caused. Suitably chastened, she vowed henceforth to protect all children.
