Vajra and bell

Handcrafted in Dehra Dun (India), this vajra and bell are indispensable for vajrayana practitioners. They symbolize wisdom and skilful means respectively. The vajra and bell together embody enlightened body, speech and mind. Hence, they can also be used as a support on the altar for us to make offerings.

We have both five and nine-pronged vajras and bells. The five prongs symbolise the five wisdoms or five Buddha families. The nine prongs symbolise the nine yanas or vehicles of the Nyingma school. Both bells are adorned, at the top, with the eight seed syllables of the dakinis.

Listen to the sound of our bells here:

 

Dimensions:

Large 18.5 cm (bell height); 14 cm (vajra length)

Small 15cm (bell height); 11 cm (vajra length)
