A hand crafted iron phurba amulet and practice support from Tibet. Each piece is individually hand carved and can take a considerable amount of man hours to complete. It is extremely difficult to carve iron in this size with such fine detail. They are slightly larger in size than the other iron Phurba pendants in our inventory, which allows for finer detail to be added. They are crafted from a darker iron and additional flames have been engraved on the blade. These are not just amulets that can be worn but are equally valid as travel size ritual supports.
The three sided blade is held in the mouth of the mythical sea creature known as a Makara and represents the power to transform the "three poisons" or kleshas into wisdom. The three wrathful deity heads at the apex represent the three kayas and inwardly represent the three channels of the body.
Length: 7.3cm (approx)
Width: 1.2cm (approx)
Material: Iron Phurba with Iron EarringsOrigin: Tibet (made by Tibetan artisans in Tibet and not Nepal or India)
Please note that these pieces are individually crafted. This means each phurba will have its own unique character. Slight variations in detail should be expected.
Tip: If you notice rust appearing on any iron ritual item, simply use a toothbrush (used for this purpose only) to gently apply olive oil to the affected areas and then remove any residue with a soft cloth. For more stubborn areas, rubbing with wire wool is a perfect solution.
