Dorje Bell and Vajra
This product is currently sold out.
The dorje and bell are commonly used ritual implements for tantric practices – in the most basic breakdown representing wisdom (bell) and method / compassion (dorje). They are synonymous with Tibet and Buddhism.
The bell is held in the left hand and symbolizes emptiness, wisdom, and the female aspect. The sound and the shape of the hollow bell signifies emptiness, or the true nature of all things. By understanding and accepting the “empty”/true nature of all things, we become free of attachment and are therefore liberated from suffering. The dorje is held in the right hand and embodies method, form, and the male aspect. The term method conveys the compassion that leads one to relief of suffering, the elimination of ignorance and ultimately enlightenment. The bell and dorje are inseparable. The use of them together represents enlightenment because combined they symbolize the marriage and balance of duality i.e., bliss and emptiness, compassion and wisdom, appearance and reality, conventional truth and ultimate truth, and male and female, etc. and further signifying indivisible emptiness and form or compassion and wisdom, the elements needed to set afoot on the path to enlightenment.
