The vajra is a Buddhist and Vedic symbol which in Sanskrit means 'the hard and might one' and is used to denote the indestructible path of Vajrayana Buddism or ' diamond path'. Dorje is the Tibetan term. "Essential the Buddhist vajra symbolizes the impenetrable, imperishable, immovable, immutable, indivisible and indestructible state of absolute reality, which is the enlightenment of Buddhahood." * Buddhahood which belong to all of us. Also used in Vedic India, the Vajra was the main weapon of Indra, the great Sky God and was the thunderbolt, fashioned from the great sage, Dahihichi's skull bones. The thunderbolt or vajra is sometimes described as a dicus with a central hole with 2 crossed bladed bars or alternated described as a notched metal club with a thousand metal spikes. It is said the Buddha took this wrathful weapon from Indra and bending the spikes or prongs inward created the peaceful form of this scepter. The crossed or double Vajra, also called Universal is described as "4 lotus mounted vajras heads that emanate from a central hub towards the four cardinal directions, and symbolize the principle of absolute stability. In the cosmographic description of Mt Meru a vast vishna-vajra supports or underlies the entire physical universes".* *The Handbooks of Tibetan Buddhist Symbols" by Robert Beer, Shambala Publications. Diane De Baun has created this handmade deep purple raku Universal Vajra bowl for your personal use and may it bring you pleasure.
