After Daruma was trapped inside his cat body, Yasha tasked him with locating Pandora's Box and the seven Samurais whose Keys could open it while she held back Kala, leader of those who wished to destroy the galaxy and wants to open the Mandala's Box. She also gifted him with a fragment of her Samurai Soul to use in emergencies.[2] Daruma was unsure that he could carry out Yasha's instructions in his new body, but Yasha assured him that his change of appearance may have its own meaning. She then continued with her lessons and inspiring words and let Daruma go on his new journey.[3]

  • Ya ( () ?) means evening; night and Sha ( (しゃ) ?) means fork(in a tree, road, river, etc.).
  • Yasha ( () (しゃ) ?), Japanese name for the yakshas, powerful nature spirits in Buddhist mythology.
    • The Yakshas (यक्ष Sanskrit: yakṣa; Pali: yakkha) are a broad class of nature-spirits, usually benevolent, but sometimes mischievous or capricious, connected with water, fertility, trees, the forest, treasure and wilderness. They appear in Hindu, Jain and Buddhist texts, as well as ancient and medieval era temples of South Asia and Southeast Asia as guardian deities. The feminine form of the word is yakṣī[7] or yakshini (यक्षिणी Sanskrit: yakṣiṇī; Pali: yakkhinī).
    • In Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist texts, the yakṣa has a dual personality. On the one hand, a yakṣa may be an inoffensive nature-fairy, associated with woods and mountains; but there is also a darker version of the yakṣa, which is a kind of ghost (bhuta) that haunts the wilderness and waylays and devours travellers, similar to the rakṣasas.
  • Yasha name can be from Vajrayakṣa (ch: 金剛夜叉明王, Jīngāng Yèchā Míngwáng; ja: 金剛夜叉明王, Kongōyasha Myō-ō) "The Devourer of Demons" - Wrathful manifestation of Buddha Amoghasiddhi is one of the five major Wisdom Kings in Buddhism.
