Rakshasa

Post by weasel666 on Wed 05 Mar 2014, 22:51



A Rakshasa is said to be a mythological humanoid being or unrighteous spirit in Hinduism. As mythology made its way into other religions, the rakshasa was later incorporated into Buddhism. Rakshasas are also called man-eaters (Nri-chakshas, Kravyads). A female rakshasa is called a Rakshasi, and a female Rakshasa in human form is a Manushya-Rakshasi. Often Asura and Rakshasa are interchangeably used.
