    Everything above + Jizō statue

    For your $100 pledge, I will send you the sticker, the postcard, the complete Lotus Dimension Starter Set as described above, the three additional quests, PLUS a limited-edition handcrafted statue of Jizō​.

    Jizō, aka ​Ksitigarbha​, is a bodhisattva known in East Asian Buddhism ​for his vow to be present with and help all living beings and to refuse Buddhahood "until all the hells are empty." He is the guardian of children and travelers, and he carries a wish-fulfilling jewel to light up the darkness for others. In short, a pretty inspiring dude.

    The Jizō statue that you will receive has been specially commissioned for this project from an independent ceramics studio in Portland, Oregon. It will be small enough to keep on your desk or carry in your pocket, and finished with a plain white glaze. Each statue will be slightly different because each one will be handmade, and each will be signed and numbered in an edition of 50.

    All Above + Prayer Flag Dedication

    If you pledge $500, I will send you the sticker, the postcard, the complete Lotus Dimension Starter Set, the Jizō statue, the three additional professionally written quests, one custom quest, PLUS I will personally hang a Tibetan prayer flag for you in the Jizō Garden at the Great Vow Zen Monastery in western Oregon.

    Yes, that's a real place. It's a small forest full of Jizō statues of varying sizes and styles, located in the wilderness behind a functioning Zen monastery just a little ways inland from the Pacific Ocean. It's pretty magical.

    And as symbolic gestures of gratitude go, this is about the most meaningful one I can think of. Thank you so much for your support!
