About our ritual item

This Small Phurba is hand-carved from ethically sourced Buffalo Bone. This Phurba is modeled after Mahakala, a Buddhist deity who is both a wrathful deity and a protector. The intricate carvings on the bone depict the deity's ferocious appearance as well as the three-sided blade symbolically used for slaying negative energies and obstacles. The Phurba is a ritual dagger that is used in tantric practices. Because of its small size, it is easy to transport and use in personal spiritual practices, as well as as a decorative item for those interested in Buddhist art and culture.

Introduction To Phurba :

The ritual dagger (Sanskrit: Kila; Tibetan: Phurba) is essential to dispelling evil and is understood to be especially helpful in neutralizing the forces that impede Tantric Buddhist practice. Its origins are ancient, appearing in the Indian Rg Veda as the central blade of the vajra that Indra used to slay the primordial cosmic snake Vritra. Its Sanskrit term, Kila, which means peg or stake, was probably linked to Vedic sacrifices. The three-headed Vajrakila Buddha is invoked through meditation on the Vajrakila Tantr, an early Indian text first propagated in Tibet in the eighth century by Padmasambhava, one of the founding masters of Tibetan Buddhism.
