This majestic Phurba or Kila is amongst the finest ritual iron Phurbas in the world today! They have been hand crafted by a Tibetan family who have been making ritual phurbas for more than 50 years. Iron is notoriously difficult to carve and these pieces have been worked entirely by hand. Each phurba can take more than 1 month to complete and is the kind of work only commissioned by high Lamas and monasteries.
The three sided blade is held in the mouth of the mythical sea dragon known as Chu-Srin in Tibetan or Makara in sanskrit. The three wrathful deity heads at the apex represent the three kayas and inwardly represent the three channels of the body. At the apex of each Phurba is a five prong vajra that sybolises the power of the five Buddha families and their five associated wisdoms. It has an awesome presence!
This quality is not available elsewhere and we will only be commissioning very small runs of these. They are truly unique works of ritual art. We look at hundreds of iron phurbas every year in Nepal and this phurba surpasses all of them.
Hand crafted in Deradhun, India.
