Yakshas are wild forest mystical spirits in Hindu mythology. They are depicted as forest dwellers and powerful protectors of the natural world, as well as guardians of mystical treasures. Yakshas are associated with wealth and prosperity, often holding a pot of gold or other valuable objects. They are believed to be able to grant wishes and bring good luck. Yakshas are often linked with Kubera, the god of wealth, and are worshipped in many parts of India and Southeast Asian mythlores.
