Introduction to Vajra and Bell

The vajra means "diamond" or "lightning" in Sanskrit, is an important symbol and ritual instrument in Hinduism and more in the Buddhist tradition Vajrayana ("diamond way") to which it gave its name.

Tibetan Dorje represents the indestructibility and efficiency that overcomes all obstacles. Symbolically, Dorje Vajra destroys ignorance. In Tibetan Buddhist rituals, the vajra is often used with the bell, representing the masculine and the feminine, the ying and the yang, the effective action, and the compassion, respectively. The shape of the Tibetan Dorje is symmetrical, the two pyramidal heads representing samsara and Nirvana, which cancel each other out in its center thanks to the ring of Emptiness. Having a Dorje at home would have positive virtues against the various attacks we suffer.

The Bell and Vajra are set to represent the perfect union of wisdom and compassion. The bell and vajra are used as ritual items in meditation practice, retreats, and ceremonies, along with other musical instruments, mudra hand gestures, and dance.

The bell or drilbu is the feminine aspect of the perfection of wisdom, which directly realizes emptiness.

The Vajra or Dorje represents the male aspect as a method or skillful means, the indestructible nature of the absolute. Together they symbolize the blessing mandala of a practitioner’s main yidam deity.
