Nine Word Spelling

In a movie, when a ninja faces challenge or release powerful magic, he/she will spell. The spelling is known as Nine Word Spelling 九字護身法. The nine words are:

WordJapanese PronounciationHand Spelling

The spelling is usually bundled with a series of gesture. Ninjas spell and do the gesture together. There are two kinds of gesture.

1: Show your index finger and middle finger and move your hand as the arrows in the above diagram

2: Follow each diagram in the above one by one

The spelling originally derives from a bible of Taoism 道家 called 抱朴子. The original sentence is "臨兵鬥者,皆陣列前行,常當視之,無所不僻。". And the second gesture is a series of hand spellings of Esoteric Sect Buddhism 密宗佛教.

Can the spelling really work? Scientifically speaking, it can perhaps scare your enemies and make yourself feel stable.
