Nyen or rakshasa elementals, demons; Nyen (gnyan), The Nyen are generally malicious spirits who live in the atmosphere or at the surface of the earth, in fields and woods.

Many of them live in trees, and it is therefore important not to cut timber on certain day indicated by astrological almanacs.

The Nyen are the cause of numerous ailments and certain types of cancer are also attributed to them. They are described as having a cow like form and being yellow or green.
