- "Seven blessings will soon replace the seven great disasters," is a teaching sourced in the Buddhist Scripture "Ninnō Hannya Kyō" also known as Benevolent Kings (Prajnaparamita) Sutra. Seven Gods of Fortune is said to have come from this teaching. During Medieval Muromachi period, it was becoming popular to worship present days wealth in order to continue having a fortune in the after life among merchant class. Around the same time, Seven Gods of Fortune were constituted as a group of seven Shinto deities and Buddhas which originate in Buddhism, Taoism and Shintoism from India, China and Japan respectively. In the belief that pilgrimage to these deities and Buddhas will bring good luck, the Pilgrimage to Seven Gods of Fortune became generalized to the public as a New Year's ritual during mid Edo era, and this practice had spread to other areas of Japan.
