Kongo Rikishi (Nio) Silver Pendant Top (Silver 950)



Kongo Rikishi or Nio  are two wrath-filled and muscular guardians of the Buddha.

They standing today at the entrance of many Buddhist temples all across Japan

in the form of frightening wrestler-like statues.


According to Japanese tradition, they traveled with the historical Buddha to protect him

and there are references to this in the Theravada Scriptures as well as the Ambatta Sutta.

Within the generally pacifist tradition of Buddhism,

stories of Nio guardians like Kongo Rikishi justified the use of physical force to

protect cherished values and beliefs against evil.


Master Kazuhide Saito will engrave your Guardian Deity

We believe the each Buddha will protect you from misfortune and bring you the peaceful heart .
