Kola Sanni Yakka
Also known as: Kola Sanniya
Origin: Sri Lanka
Kola Sanni Yakka is the chief of the eighteen disease-causing Sanni Yakka spirits. He contains and controls them. As he theoretically can heal or remove any illness, a quick fix remedy involves addressing him by name three times and specifying the affliction you would like him to cure. If it works, lay out an offering table for him. If it doesn’t, you owe nothing. Find another remedy.
