Vajrakila Buddha, the "Diamond- Thunderbolt Dagger," is a fierce buddha- archetype important to Padma Sambhava and the Old Tantras. His name reflects the power of buddha-wisdom to transfix the destructive self-habit of ignorant beings. The triangular blade of the dagger that is this deity's emblem comes from the three doors of liberation – voidness, signlessness, and wishlessness – which indicate the reality of all things with respect to their actuality, causality, and fruition. Thus, Vajrakila as an archetype manifests the power of transcendent wisdom to terminate egocentrism and possessiveness.
This Vajrakilaya thangka can guide you in your everyday practice and help you transform. This thangka would be a great gift for a practitioner like you!
