Japanese, Bishamonten is the god of warriors (but not of war) and prayed to for victory prior to battle. Defender of the Nation, Guardian of the Dharma (Buddhist Law), and Lord of Wealth and Treasure (hence his inclusion in the Japanese group of Seven Lucky Gods). Bishamon-ten is neither a Buddha nor a Bodhisattva. Bishamonten is a deva (a Sanskrit term meaning celestial being or demigod).

In Japan, Bishamonten is thought of as an armor-clad god of warfare or warriors & a punisher of evildoers – a view that is at odds with more pacific Buddhist king. Bishamon is portrayed holding a spear in one hand & a small pagoda in the other hand, the latter symbolizing the divine treasure house, whose contents he both guards & gives away. In Japanese folklore, he is one of the Japanese Seven Gods of Fortune.
