Ru Yi Scepter

Ru YiRuyi or Ru Yi (formerly spelt as juyi) is a curved decorative object that is used as a ceremonial sceptre in Chinese Buddhism or a talisman. A traditional ruyi has a long S-shaped handle, its head is fashioned like a cloud, fist, or lingzhi mushroom. It can be found made from various valuable materials such as jade, gold, silver, iron, crystal, coral, agate, bamboo, ivory, rhinoceros horn, bone, wood and other precious gems.

Some experts speculate that Ru Yi scepter came from ancient India to China along with Buddhism in the Eastern Han period (25 – 220 CE). Also called Anuruddha, ruyi sceptre originally was a monk’s tool for scratching (backscratcher). Holding it, a man can scratch the itches on his or her own back and thus get a feeling of well-being. However, some materials suggest that this scepter is not a foreign import since a scratching tool already existed before the Han dynasty.
