Often described as a "fly swatter" or "fly shooer"


The stick is believed to protect the wielder from desire and also works as a way of ridding areas of flies without killing them


The hossu is regarded as symbolic of a Zen master's authority to teach and transmit Buddha Dharma to others


And it is frequently passed from one master to the next.
