Akutami has described Jujutsu Kaisen Domain Expansion, pointing out that even the smallest details have importance in the story. These details can add depth to characters we already know and sometimes they are more important than that.

The domain expansion hand signs, which appear to be just cool moves, could be one example.

We now have more information about them thanks to the thread created by user Kyleanimescouter on Twitter. We also did some research by you.

Let’s find out what each character means.

We already know Akutami refers a lot to Buddhism and Hinduism concepts within Jujutsu Kaisen. Take Mahoraga, for example.

Or Nobara’s cursed technique if you prefer. The jujutsu-kaisen domain expansion signs have both Buddhist and Hinduism meanings.

These are mudras and, which we often see in traditional dances.

These mudrasin Indian and Japanese mythology are also held by some Gods. The mudrasand gods are all related to our favorite characters in a similar way:

Signs for Jujutsu Kaisen Domain Expansion: Meanings

It is important to keep in mind one thing when you are looking at the symbolism. Every record is different in the way they interpret myths and Gods.

As many myths as Gods are there, there is a wealth of information available. Our interpretations of these myths vary greatly from one source to the next.

Now, let’s move on to the next step.

Ryomen Sukuna – Malevolent Shrine

The hand sign of Sukuna for Malevolent Shrine is identical to the one held by Emma Ten In.

In Hindu mythology, this God is also called Emma-o and Yama. He is also the king of Hell and judges souls. He is also said to have been a human before he became the King of the Dead Land.

Do you sound familiar?

Before becoming a curse, even Sukuna was a human-shaman. Sukuna the original inspiration is also a human!

Fushiguro Megumi – Chimera Shadow Garden

Yakushi Nyorai In is the inspiration behind Megumi’s hand sign for Chimera Shadow Garden.

In Hindu Mythology, Yakushi corresponds directly to Bhaisajyaguru. Both scriptures refer to him either as the God of Medicine, or Medicine Buddha.

It is fascinating to note that Yakushi has 12 Heavenly generals, one of which is Mahoraga.

We know that Megumi has ten Shikigami. One of them is Mahoraga. Is the “12 generals”, as they are called, a foreshadowing (pun intended), to Megumi’s Ten Shadows Technology upgrade?

We don’t know!

Jogo – Coffin on the Iron Mountain

Jogo is the Japanese deity Daikokuten who holds his hand sign. Hello Noragami fans!

Shinto scripts refers to Daikokuten (and also luck) as the God of Destruction. This deity is similar to Mahakala in Hindu scripts.

Mahakala refers to the Kala phase, or the God Shiva’s ultimate destroyer. This is a significant connection to Jogo’s character. He literally can summon a meteor.

It is possible to connect Jogo’s “mountain” domain to Kailash, where Shiva lived in peace with his family.

Mahito – Self-Embodiment for Perfection

Even the most evil villains are treated the same as main characters in Jujutsu Kaisen. Here he is, Mahito, with TWO hand signals, not one like the other.

These hand signs are very relevant to his Jujutsu Kaisen expansion.

The sign above corresponds to Nyorai, a Japanese name for Nyorai. Both refer to Buddha, or to practicing to become Buddha.

Buddha is an appropriate contrast to Mahito’s ideas and actions in Jujutsu Kaisen. But if we look closely, we see a commonality.

The mudra means “a human practicing being a Buddha,” and Mahito also seeks enlightenment.

The lower sign refers to Kujaku Myoo In in Buddhism and one the Myoo (kings of wisdom). Mahamayuri is a Hindu mythology name for her, which literally means ‘greatpeacock’.

Mahamayuri, like a peacock that feeds on snakes and insects, is believed to perform the “pious act” of removing pain or plague from people.

This symbolism is very relevant to Mahito because of his curse. The reason for Mahito’s birth was human hatred and anger towards each other, which is essentially negative.

Here’s the final name:

Gojo Satoru: Infinite Void or Unlimited Void

Gojo is a special person. His character is never boring. His dominating technique, his eyes during the anime . The sign for his Jujutsu Kaisen Domain expansion, Infinite Void is also very special.

We are given some insight by a user gir72_di_kyun via Twitter. ( Translation credit to Srijita, my fellow writer)

Gojo’s hand sign was taken from Teishakuten (also known as Indra). Indra, the most powerful god in Hindu mythology and ruler of all Gods, is also known as Indra.

Teishakuten, in Japanese mythology is the greatest protector. He protects humans and deities from all evil. Well? Gojo is also Jujutsu Kaisen’s strongest sorcerer.

He almost overpowers all other Shamans. Gojo’s status is marked by his remarkable symbolism.

These symbols are what we know from domains that we have not yet seen. There is a good chance that these mudras will be used in other domains. We’ll see more!

If Kenjaku is able to use domain expansion in future, his mudra might come from Fukukenjaku Kannon In.
