History Of The Louhans:
Lohan, Monk is considered as one who has reached “the other shore” and is saved for all eternity. In him the asavas – the craving for sensual pleasures, earthly existence, ignorance and wrong views – are gone. He is subject to no more rebirths and karma.
Lohans are well-known for their great wisdom, courage and supernatural power. Due to their abilities to ward off the evil, Lohans have became guardian angels of the Buddhist temple and there in the main hall standing guard are the ever-present, indomitable-looking 18 Luohan figures, sometimes accompanied by 500 or more lesser Lohans.
According to tradition, there were originally only 16 lohans. Two were added on the list by the Chinese in the Tang Dynasty.
