Vajras (Dorje) Double vajras

Diamond thunderbolt of Liberation

The vajra is a common symbol in Tibetan/Tantric Buddhism and signifies powerful transformation. Vajra is a Sanskrit word meaning both thunderbolt and diamond and known as Dorje in Tibetan Buddhism. Additionally, it used as a ritual object to symbolize both the properties of a diamond (indestructibility) and a thunderbolt (irresistible force). Essentially it is a symbol of emptiness and the realisation of emptiness that is able to clarify all confusion and break through all obstacles and is particularly concerned with direct and immediate experience unmediated by concepts and ideas.

A number of Buddhist deities hold the Vajra or our known by the name Vajra eg. Vajrapani, Vajrasattva, Vajrayogini, Vajradhara. There is also the Vajra Guru ( guide/teacher), Vajrayana ( vehicle/path of the Vajra), the Vajrasana ( the diamond seat or place).

Vajras have a number of spokes. In a five-prong Vajra they represent the Five wisdoms which Transform the Five Poisons. These are The mirror-like wisdom, The wisdom of equality, The wisdom of discrimination, The wisdom of accomplishing activity, The wisdom of the sphere of reality. The Spokes rise out of the Central sphere of Completeness, Emptiness. Thus through the realising emptiness the five poisons become the Five wisdoms.Vajras can also be found in jewellery section of this site
