Jaki 邪鬼の伝説 "Evil Spirit" Legends

- quote -
Jaki or Jyaki 邪鬼 or Amano Jyaku 天邪鬼
Tentōki 天燈鬼 and Ryūtōki 龍燈鬼

Jaki is the name of the tiny creatures the four kings stand upon.
Classified as members of the Yaksha in Japan; also referred to as the Amano Jyaku (Heaven Jyaku). In a tradition unique to Japan, the Jaki demons are sometimes represented by two creatures known as Tentōki (Tentoki) 天燈鬼 and Ryūtōki (Ryutoki) 龍燈鬼, which translate literally as Celestial-Lamp Demon and Dragon-Lamp Demon.
Japanese legends say these two creatures were originally evil, but after getting trampled by the Shitennō, they repented, were saved, and now carry lanterns as offerings of light to the Buddha, or to light up the road in front of the Shaka Nyorai (Historical Buddha).
The Jaki and Tentōki / Ryūtoki symbolize the power of the Shitennō to repel and defeat evil. Two wonderful sculptures of Tentōki and Ryutōki can be found at Kōfukuji Temple in Nara

. Amanojaku 天邪鬼 / 天の邪鬼 / あまのじゃく "heavenly evil spirit"
Amanojaki, Amanjaku あまんじゃく / アマノジャク .

..................................................................................................................................................................




The amanojaku is commonly held to be derived from
Amanosagume
(天探女), a wicked deity in Shintō myth, which shares the amanojaku's contrary nature and ability to see into a person's heart, "a very perverted demon".

The creature has also entered Buddhist thought, perhaps via syncretism with the yasha, where it is considered an opponent of Buddhist teachings. It is commonly depicted as being trampled on and subdued into righteousness by Bishamonten or one of the other Shitennō.
In this context it is also called a jaki (邪鬼).

tantoo 短刀 the short sword
Yabu Kozan 藪孤山 (1735 - 1802) Scholar of Confucian studies. From Higo. 肥後国の人。江戸と京都で遊学した後、 熊本藩校時習館教授。

The daughter of Yabu Kozan was very weak from birth on. And this year again, she fell ill. No medicine would help. So Kozan put his sword in a bag and placed it under her pillow. From that time on the Jaki kept away and the girl was healed by the power of the Family Sword.

知多郡 Chita district 南知多町 Minami-Chita

In 内海 Utsumi there are statues of the 四天王 Shitenno with a podestal of the Jaki. It used to be a ganja 岩座 rock podestal, but the Jaki took pity on the four deities on this hard seat and offered themselves as seat.

Here are some photos from a tour around the four Shitenno in Utsumi:
