Etymology[]

Heaven is a common religious, cosmological, or transcendent place where heavenly beings such as gods, angels, jinn, saints, or venerated ancestors are said to originate, be enthroned, or to live. According to the beliefs of some religions, heavenly beings can descend to earth or incarnate, and earthly beings can ascend to Heaven in the afterlife, or in exceptional cases enter Heaven alive.

The Japanese names of the skills are Buddhist or Hindu in origin.

  • 天鼓雷音: Dundubhi, Devadundubhi, or Dundubhi-ishvara
  • 阿修羅: Asura
  • 金剛七剣: Vajra (diamond, adamantine, lightning) Seven Swords
  • 水磨龍穴: Unknown reference. Its chant makes a reference to "demon(ic) rakshasa" (悪鬼羅刹).
  • 大虚空蔵: Great Ākāśagarbha
  • 天魔鬼神 (tenma kishin): Uncertain. "Tenma" (天魔) is the Japanese term for Mara. "Kishin" (鬼神) is a Chinese term for ghosts or spirits, and a Japanese term for demons, but may also be Japanese for the Buddhist concept of fierce deities, or super-powered beings. Possibly "Mara Krodha".
