Description of Vajra Dzi

On the bead of Dzi vajra is a kind of drawing that represents the vajra. “Vajra” in Sanskrit means “lightning strike” and “diamond”. The word “Dorje”, which is used in Tibetan Buddhism, is synonymous with the word “vajra” from Hindu mythology. This word denotes a sacred weapon – a diamond scepter or rod, which is a symbol of supreme power and justice.

A diamond scepter painted on a Dzi vajra bead consists of several parts. The central part consists of a sphere symbolizing Sumyata – the primordial nature of the Universe that underlies all things. Two lotus flowers extend from the central sphere. One of them represents the phenomenal world (samsara), and the other represents the noumenal world (nirvana). This is one of the main dichotomies that is accessible to people who have not reached the state of enlightenment.
