Benzai-Ten is the Japanese Goddess of everything that flows—water, music, eloquence, knowledge, the arts, and love. Benzai-Ten is the patroness of geishas, musicians, and dancers. She came to earth to stop a dragon who had been eating the children from a small village. Benzai-Ten descended from the clouds, and the island of Enoshima rose from the sea to meet her. She went to the cave of the dragon, tamed and married him.
