The Dorje or Vajra, also referred to as the lightining bolt is the foremost religious symbol of Vajrayana Buddhism. In this school of worship enlightenment is believed to be granted by sudden and powerful epiphanies. This Vajra tool powerfully represents the sudden and cathartic opening of the mind. Traditionally used as a tool for meditation, this object is also powerfully charged with vigorous Yang energy. Display it as a symbol of compassion and awareness in your home or workplace or use it to strike a Tibetan bell for enhancing meditation. In Feng Shui, it's used to subdue the #3 quarrelsome star.
