  • The vajra, also called a dorje, is a sanskrit word for diamond or thunderbolt
  • The five pronged vajra as seen here, is the most commonly seen vajra
  • dorje or vajra is a Buddhist ritual item that symbolizes the flash of enlightenment that happens like a thunderbolt and the lightning bolt power of enlightenment
  • The vajra is used in Hindu, Jain and Buddhist traditions
  • This dorje is hand made by the artists of Nepal and completely one of a kind, you will receive this exact statue with your order
The Vajra is composed of several parts:  In the center is a sphere which represents Sunyata, the primordial nature of the universe, the underlying unity of all things. The thunderbolt or diamond that destroys all kinds of ignorance, and itself is indestructible. The Vajra is symbol of Indra. In tantric rituals, the Vajra symbolizes the male principle which represents method in the right hand, while the Bell symbolizes the female principle, held in the left hand. Their interaction leads to enlightenment. 

Emerging from the sphere are two lotus flowers.  One represents the phenomenal world (or in Buddhist terms Samsara), the other represents the noumenal world (or Nirvana).  This is one of the fundamental dichotomies which are perceived by the unenlightened.

The five pronged vajra as seen here, is the most commonly seen vajra.  There is an elaborate system of correspondences between the five elements of the noumenal side of the vajra, and the phenomenal side.  One important correspondence is between the five 'poisons' with the five wisdoms.  The five poisons are the mental states that obscure the original purity of a beings mind, while the five wisdoms are the five most important aspects of the enlightened mind. Each of the five wisdoms is also associated with a Buddha figure.
