to tradition, this lohan, Nakula or Pakula, was originally
a warrior with immense strength. He gave up the life of
fighting and killing to become a monk, finally attaining
enlightenment through constant meditation. However, due
to his former profession, he still exuded much physical
strength even during meditation. In mythology, this lohan's
sphere of influence extended through all of India, and
was considered one of Buddha's favourite disciples. Occasionally,
he is portrayed as a teacher, holding a string of Buddhist
rosary with a small boy beside him.
