|Romanized Name:||Lady Sati|
|English Name:||Sati Saigan|

|Japanese VA:||Yuka Komatsu |
|Japanese Name:||Dainichi Nyorai|
Sati Saigan (サティ・サイガン, Sati Saigan) is a fictional character in the manga series of the Shaman King. She is the leader of the Gandhara group, one of the three great powers in the Shaman Fights.
Sati has long red-brown hair and typically wears an orange dress, probably like Daiei does, as do Buddhist monks. She also wears a crown, as she is apparently a princess and high ranking female monk in the Gandhara order, with a long veil and holds a staff, as carrying medium for her spirit Dainichi Nyorai.
Her casual clothing consists only of a simple two parted white dress.
As normally attributed to Buddhist monks serenity, inner peace, and meditation should be part of their daily life. So, she is no different from be, as she is serene, peaceful and seems to be very calm. She heavily believes in a non violent approach. She is also very polite and is the only one addressing "Wooden Sword" Ryu as Ryunosuke, his birth name. As a child, Sati's personality was somewhat an opposite to what it now is as a grown woman. She was rather short-tempered, was shown to have outbursts when annoyed, and was also rather reckless. However, she was also willing to help others, like Cado, whom she intended to try and "cure" from his greed back then.
Abillities and PowersEdit
With her very high Furyoku level (700,000), Dainichi Nyorai and healing capabilities, she is able to bring people back from the dead. She can also send people to the netherworld. Dainichi Nyorai and all other Buddhistic spirits have furyoku-nullification abilities, enabling the hosting shamans to win battles without (or with minimal) violence.

All of Gandhara's spirits are Buddhas representing Tathagata, Myo-o, Bosatsu and Ten. Lady Sati holds Dainichi Nyorai (大日如来, Dainichi Nyorai) in her staff (as carrying medium). She uses Dainichi for close combat and for the chant that sent Asakura Yoh's soul to train in hell.
Once, when she was a child, she came to a temple that held a wooden statue of Senju Kannon and talked to it about the injustice in the world, until she was interrupted by the landowners of the temple. She was interrupted by three men claiming to be land sharks and who would throw her out unless she paid them. When Sati attempted to defend the statue and the temple, the landowners offered to take her instead because the statue was worthless. Before they could hurt Sati, Dainichi Nyorai spoke up. Slowly breaking through the statue of Senju Kannon, he threatens to beat the men up with his thousand hands, which scares the three men away.
Shaman Fights Second RoundEdit
Tathagata Nyorai succeeded the first round after crushing Haiti-800 in the first round. Team "Myooh" lost to Team "The Ren" and there was no mention of Team "Ten"; just that all teams including "Nyorai" withdrew after "Myooh"'s defeat. That move made Gandhara's real intentions more clear.
Lady Sati instructs Cado, Yainage and Jackson to prepare the future shamans to be prepared to become the 5 Elemental warriors. Thus, she sends Team "Myooh" to meet Team "The Ren" in the Bathrooms in order to send them to the Netherworld. There, they will learn to bring their Furyoku to spectacular levels.
Invading the PlantsEdit
While the Five Elemental Warriors fight their way through the Patches and the continent of Mu it becomes the task of the Gandhara to retrieve the Five Grand Elemental Spirits. It is Lady Sati who amongst four of them travels to one of the four hells and fights Enma Daioh, the greatest of the four Kings of Hell and the Guardian of the Spirit of Earth.
Sati delivers the elemental spirits to the warriors after all five have been obtained. After that she is seen on the Soul Train shouting encouragement to the warriors along with everyone else that was killed.
Also, during the second round in the Anime, Lady Sati seems to be represented as a young girl of 10 years of age and was referred to as Lady Nyorai in the English-dubbed anime.
Another shaman, by the name of Gekkou also resembles Lady Sati, though a much of a more mature look, as Sati appears in the manga. However, Gekkou appears to be a Shinto miko and accompanies two other shamans, Fudou, a young red haired boy, and Nikkou, an old man.
- Sati's name, position and the way she met Dainichi, resembles Sachi, the incarnation of the Buddha Miroku in Hiroyuki Takei's oneshot manga Butsu Zone. She was foretold to awaken at the year 1999. She also had a companion, an Itako Princess Anna who resembles Asakura Anna.
