I was very happy of the explanation of ganriki (sp?) that Yabe sensei gave at the seminar.

The difference between that and metsuke was a question that i have been mulling on for a little while now

But i can't seem to find a picture of that statue he was talking about anywhere

Did i get the name right? Was it Neo?
And did anyone catch which temple you can find it in?

cheers

The Nio (Benevolent Kings) are a pair of protectors who stand guard outside the temple gate at most Japanese Buddhist temples, one on either side of the entrance. In Japan, the gate itself is often called the Niomon (literally Nio Gate). Their fierce and threatening appearance wards off evil spirits and keeps the temple ground free of demons and thieves.
