A rare nine prong iron vajra that has been entirely carved by hand. Great skill is needed to create these vajras because iron is notoriously difficult to work with. They are made for us by special commission and are not available elsewhere. This is a powerful looking vajra with a more wrathful quality. The nine pointed vajra always has an axial central prong and eight curved outer prongs. The eight outer prongs symbolise the Eightfold Noble Path taught by the Buddha. The central prong represents the enlightened Buddha families. In the Nyingma tradition, the nine prong vajra can also symbolise the complete perfection of the nine yanas.
Hand carved by skilled Tibetan artisans in Deradhun. Each piece takes the maker several weeks to complete.
approx 6 inches
Tip: If rust starts to appear on any of your iron items, apply some olive oil with a toothbrush (used for this purpose only) and rub away the residue with a clean cloth until dry. For very stubborn areas simply use wire wool.
