The Twin Kings
While they have been worshiped separately, the Wisdom Kings Fudō and Aizen have also often been worshiped in tandem, forming a complementary dyad. This dyad has usually been interpreted symbolically in terms of sexual union, but it also had a significant embryological meaning. It also formed, with the Bodhisattva Nyoirin Kannon, a triad associated with the wish-fulfilling jewel (cintamani), with the founder of Shingon Kūkai, and with the sun-goddess Amaterasu.
