Yaksha (夜叉, yaksa) are an ancient group of compassionate spirits that conducted subterranean treasures and are known as protective gods. There are two types of Yaksha -

Friendly Yaksha: that resemble beautiful nature.

Dark Yaksha: that are similar to ghosts that infest dangerous wildernesses and consume unwary preys.

In Buddhism, the good Yaksha are loyal assistants of Vaiśravaṇa, a god who supports righteousness.
