    Is Oliver's gift to his sister a real buddhist thing?

    In the first episode, Oliver gives his sister, Speedy, a what he calls a "hozen" where it's meaning originates from buddhism. I tried looking it up but couldn't find anything. Is this a real thing?

    According to the producers, it is, and we'll find out what it means at some point in the series.

    Producers are full of crap, it's a name and a temple in Japan. Hozen are a race of talking apes added in the WoW Mists of Pandaria expansion though.

    One Version of Hozen Meaning

    Unsure if it this will be considered a spoiler or not...








    I don't know if anyone has found an answer to this which is correct. Buddhism is practiced worldwide and started in Indian Subcontinent. This is what I found and for more information reply and I'll give you the website.

    Below is the answer























    The Arrow or Hōzen 宝箭


    良き友に巡り会う. Reconnecting with good friends or meeting true friends. Also a weapon against the enemies of Buddhism, one that symbolizes the destruction of the passions. In Japan, Aizen Myō-ō (Conqueror of the Passions, God of Love) is especially associated with the bow and arrow, which are symbolic of intense concentration. The union of the bow and arrow, says the Flammarion Guide, "may also symbolize love."

    Hope this answers your question, doesn't ruin any surprises for the show or you.
