Default [HPHF] Ideas for Magic Items

The HPHF stands for High Powered "Historical" Fantasy. So I am interested in ideas for magic items that derive from historical culture. So I would like to start with ideas for Buddhist magic items like prayer wheels and lotus statues and so on and have ideas for what the items do. Thanks.

The Viswa Vajra could be an amulet conferring protection from evil (Danger Sense), or adding DR through its association with the durability of diamonds. It could also be used to grant bonuses to Will or IQ rolls, due to its use to calm the mind. You could take it further an perhaps give it offensive capabilities with lightning attacks. Is that a helpful start?

Yes that exactly the kind of interesting treasure/ magic items I want. Thanks.

Prayer wheels strike me as something that could be used as a charging device of some sort.
