What are these creatures?
|We're humanoid ogres is what we are.|
Ancient Vedic lore influenced many later Indian religions, like Buddhism, which incorporated these and other nonhuman creatures into its view of life on this planet.
Females are known as rakshasis, which in human form are called raksheshas. Like the yakshi (Yeti), they are often said to be fiercer than the males. The terms asura ("Titan") and rakshasa are often used interchangeably. Mara, for example, is called a yakkha ("ogre") or rakshasa, which is explained as a "corrupted asura."
"Bigfoot" in Buddhism
Alavaka Sutra (Pali canon, SN 10.12) tells the story of the Buddha being harassed by a rakshasa named Alavaka. The creature orders the Buddha to leave this spot then to return, over and over.
When the Buddha finally refuses to leave, the ogre -- which possesses psychic powers, as they often do -- threatens the Buddha telling him he will do unspeakable things to him unless he is able to answer some questions.
The rest of the sutra concerns the dialogue of questions and answers. In the end, the rakshasa is convinced of the Buddha's enlightenment and becomes a follower.
Sri Lankan (Sinhalese) ancestral legends refer to them as Yakshas and the females as Yakshis. In Nepal they are Yetis, "Abominable Snow Creatures."
