Phurbas (Vajra-daggers)

Phurba ritual dagger for demon taming!

Phurba or phurpa, kila ( sanskrit) is a three-sided peg, stake, knife, or nail-like ritual implement traditionally associated with Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and Bön, and Indian Vedic traditions. Phurbas are also connected to with the meditational deity Vajrakilaya or Dorje Phurba who holds one to his heart. Phurbas are also associated with Padmasambhava who used Phurbas to tame the Demons of Tibet and also transformed himself into the Phurba deity. One of the principal methods of working with the phurba is to pierce the earth with it or as is common with Himalayan shamanic traditions, to penetrate it vertically, point down into a basket, bowl or cache of rice (or other soft grain if the phurba is wooden). In the Himalayan shamanic tradition the phurba may be considered as axis mundi. For the majority of Nepalese shaman, the k?la is linked with the world tree, either in their visualisations or in initiatory rites or other rituals.
Many different styles/sizes available. Smaller portable pieces or pendants and larger pieces with stands.
