Being a practicing Buddhist, I found this tid bit interesting:
From the 25th Chapter of "The Sutra Of The Lotus Flower Of The Wonderful Law," by Banno Kato's 1930 translation
"If there be hundreds thousands of kotis of beings who in search of gold, silver, lapis lazuli, moonstones, agate, corals, amber, pearls and other treasures, go out on the ocean and if a BLACK GALE (my caps) blows their ships to drift upon the land of the rakshasa-demons, and if amongst them there be even a single person who calls upon the name of the Bodhisattva Regarder-Of-The-Cries-Of-The-World, all those people will be delivered from the woes of the rakshasas."
(Kato, Bunno, trans., The Sutra Of The Lotus FLower Of The Wonderful Law (Tokyo: Rissho Kosei-kai, 1971), p. 405.]
On the same page, as a footnote, Kato defines the black gale as "a black wind. There are six kinds of wind, viz., black, red, blue, of heaven, of earth and of fire."
