Daibosatsu (Jap., ‘great bodhisattva’). The title of Hachiman understood as the incarnation of a great bodhisattva. Daibosatsu is, therefore, any bodhisattva (Jap., bosatsu) who has reached the stage (futai) of not falling back into a lower state, and who is thus assured of becoming a buddha. It is used as a title of respect for an outstanding monk.
