Shakujō: a Buddhist ringed staff used primarily in prayer or as a weapon, that originates from India(Sanskrit: "sounding staff";  English: monk staff; Chinese: xīzhàng, literally "tin stick")

The jingling of the staff's rings is used to warn small sentient beings (i.e. insects) to move from the carrier's path and avoid being accidentally trodden on. In ancient times it was used also

to scare away dangerous animals. Ringing also is used to alert the faithful that there is a monk within earshot in need of alms. In the Sarvāstivāda vinaya the khakkhara is called the

"sounding staff" because of the tinkling sound the rings make.
