The guardian deity of Sojiji is Sanbō Dai Kojin.
Nanda Ryūō deeply respected the founder of Fuzōin, Daigen Sōshin Zenji (also the 3rd patriarch of Sojiji), and Nanda received dharma transmission from Zenji. To show his thankfulness Nanda donated the statue of Sanbō Dai kojin.
Zenji put this Sanbō Dai kojin as the guardian deity to protect Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
Ritual prayers for the safety of individuals and good luck.
