The vajra (Tib. dorje) is a ritual object symbolizing compassionate male energy, and the indestructible diamond-like properties of our inherent Buddha-nature. It is the unshakeable scepter wielded by peaceful Vajrayana deities, and the invincible weapon wielded by wrathful Vajrayana deities. Here, synthetic silk cords, in the 5 colors of the natural elements, are carefully woven to form a vajra with long “tails” or ribbons. (Why “synthetic” silk? No tiny silk worms lost their lives to produce this item!)
Can be easily attached to a metal split-ring to form an easy-to-find key chain, or serve as a decorative item. Available in 2 sizes.
