The Sage of Six Paths important information ! ( Japanese Mythology )
The Sage of Six paths used two weapons in battle !
One of that weapons is named Shakujō and searching about this weapon i think we could have some possible things that will come into the Naruto Manga !
A khakkhara (Sanskrit: 'Sounding staff', English: monk staff, Japanese: 錫杖, shakujō, Mandarin xīzhàng, literally "tin stick") is a Buddhist ringed staff used primarily in prayer or as a weapon,!
In Japan the shakujō became a formidable weapon in the hands of a practiced Buddhist monk. It could be used as a staff to block and parry attacks and the metal rings at the tip could be slammed into an opponent's face to momentarily blind him. At the very tip of the metal finial is a sharp point which can be used to attack weak points of the body. The bottom end of the khakkhara has a metal butt which can be used to thrust and hit an opponent. An opponent's weapons can also be easily deflected.
The khakkhara is the symbol of the Dharma and one of the eighteen objects which a Buddhist monk must carry
A khakkhara may have either four rings representing the Four Noble Truths, six rings representing the Six Perfections, or twelve rings representing the twelvefold chain of cause and effect. A four ring khakkhara is carried by novice monks, a six ring khakkhara is carried by a Bodhisattva, and a twelve ring khakkhara is carried by the Buddha. Most commonly seen are those with six rings which have also been claimed to represent the six states of existence (humans, animals, hell, hungry ghosts, gods, and asuras).
