The Vajra

The Vajra is a Buddhist tantric emblem that represents enormous spiritual strength and spiritual stability. It represents Vajrayana, one of Buddhism’s three primary streams. The Vajra, which is shaped like a club with ribbed spherical heads, represents the qualities of a diamond (purity and indestructibility) as well as the properties of a thunderbolt (irresistible energy).

It also denotes boundless inventiveness, dexterity, and strength. The Vajra is also known as Dorje in Tibetan Buddhism, where it is used as a ritual tool. Lamas and other sadhana practitioners utilise it in conjunction with a bell.
