The 5 Great Powerful Bosatsu [Godai Riki Bosatsu]

Godai Riki Bosatsu are the principal images of Buddha for the law of Nioo Kyo. These transformations expressing wrath are Touhou Kongou-shu Bosatsu (guardian of the east), Nanpou Kongou-hou Bosatsu (guardian of the south), Seiho Kongo-ri Bosatsu (guardian of the west), and Hoppou Kongou-yasha Bosatsu (guardian of the north) these four surround Chuuou Kongou-haramitsu Bosatsu in the center. It is written in Niougokoku Hannyaharamita kyo gokokubon "Behold, I preach the law to protect your countries for your salvation. Should great disorders affect all of your countries, various calamities would occur, and invaders would destroy your countries. Should that case happen, you, all of the kings of Buddhism, carry this Hannyaharamita with you and chant it." It means that when disorders occur in countries, all of evils and tenjin would get in a lawless state at first, which would make all of the people disordered; robbers or burglars would appear to destroy their agriculture or other industries, and disordering confrontations would happen among the leaders of the countries, which would cause various calamities all over the world. They would rule over the first disorder to prevent the world from being destroyed.
