The Raitaro - The Buddhist Dragon

The Raitaro- The Buddhist Dragon
This is another post of my Love for the Dragon...
The Raitaro is a Dragon named in the Buddhist traditions and legends of Japan. The legend tells how a poor farmer named Bimbo desperately prayed to Buddha for rain to save his crop. Soon the rains came and during the height of the storm he found a tiny child. Bimbo carefully took the child home; no parents could be located, she he decided to adopt the tiny child and he and his wife called the baby Raitaro- Which means "Thunder Child". 
Years later after helping Bimbo the farmer whenever needed rain or other help with his fields, Bimbo became quite well off and was well provided for over the many years after taking in the small child in the thunder storm who was full grown how. It was then that Raitaro decided to move on and thank the now older couple for rescuing him and taking care of him all these years. After that their son Raitaro departed, but before he left they saw him  change 
into a magnificent White Dragon....
I hope you Enjoyed another legend about my Love for the
DRAGON!
