Vajra

The Transcendental state of Emptiness.

Compassion - The Masculine Principle


To achieve enlightenment these two principles must be combined.


The sound of the Ganta (bell) is regarded as Auspicious in Tibet and is used to drive away negative attachments.  

The Ganta and Vajra (Dorje) are always used together. 

In practice, the ringing of the bell calls beings to practice, and warns off malign influences and is also a musical offering.
