Trimurti & The Three Great Dojutsus

Post by Twin Steps on Wed Apr 24, 2013 3:26 pm


Kishimoto as always used East Asian religions and mythology. It's pretty much established that opposites can't exist without their other half, which is the principal of Yin & yang. Cold without heat, life without death, happiness without sorrow......you get the idea.

However, there IS a certain East Asian religion which does not follow this prinicipal exactly. Let's take a look at it, shall we?

Spoiler:

This different view on "balance" is mentioned in the Vedas of Hinduism, whihch is something Kishimotto has previously borrowed plenty ideas from.

This ideology is refereed to as called Trimurti, and it states that, unlike the Yin-Yang principal, THREE forces are needed to achieve balance. In Hindusim, these would be Brahama, the creator, Vishnu, The sustainer, and Shiva, the destroyer.

Three beings needed to achieve balance.

  1. Three Legendary Dōjutsu

    Genin Teams consisting of Three Ninj,

    The Sannins which consists of Three Ninja

    The final "normal" Sharingan is a Three Tomtoe Sharingan.


From the evidence provided, it is safe to assume that Kishimoto has been using the Trimurti concept.

Spoiler:

The three Eye techniques of the Naruto series, which have also been refered to as "The Three Great Dojutsus". But how exactly would these relate to the Trimurti concept? The Sharingan, in its most advanced form, becomes the (eternal) Mangekyo Sharingan while The Rinnegan has no greater, more powerful form. So let's analyze the abilities of both dojutsus and how they compare to the Trimurti theory.

Mangekyou Sharingan

Spoiler:

Tsukuyomi - Corruption of the Mind
Amaterasu - Destruction of the Material World
Susano'o - Plain Destruction
Kotamatsukami - Mind Control and Corruption of Awarness
Kamui - Subtraction of the Material World


Rin'negan

Spoiler:

Tendo - Gravity manipulation
Shuradō - Augmentation
Ningendō - Knowledge Retrieving
Chikushōdō - Breathing Life
Gakidō - Absorption
Jigokudō - Restoration
Gedō - Control over Life & Death


Notice how all the abilities of the Sharingan are abilities to destroy. And the abilities of the Rinnegan are all abilities to create. This means that the Rinnegan is representing Brahman, the Creator, and the Sharingan is representing Shiva, the Destroyer. This leaves one position remaining: the Sustainer.

So which Eye is left for that role? The Byakugan, to represent Vishnu the Sustainer.

Greattt. ^_^
Your theories are always so cool and plausible.

The Hyuga and the Byakugan are so mysterious. There's so much we don't know, yet so much that can be theorized by studying Eastern religions. I hope Kishi does something with it all.
