Very Rare Hand Crafted Iron Khatvanga
Very Rare Hand Crafted Iron Khaṭvāṇga Trident
Our Price: £1,395.00

".....the kapāla (skull-cup) and the khaṭvāṇga (trident) are considered to be two of the greatest substances in the Vajrayana, especially if you are one of the highest Vajrayana practitioners." ~Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche~

"The trishula (khaṭvāṇga) is wielded by the Hindu God Shiva and is said to have been used to sever the original head of Ganesha. The three points have various meanings and significance, and, common to Hindu religon, have many stories behind them. They are commonly said to represent various trinities--creation, maintenance and destruction, past, present and future, the three gunas. When looked upon as a weapon of Shiva, the trishula is said to destroy the three worlds."

Padmasambhava, who is considered the superme subduer of rakshas (demons) is usually portrayed with a khatvanga or trishula. It leans in the crook of his left arm resting against his shoulder and therefore represents the inseparable connection between himself and his enlightened consort, the Dakini Mandarava.

According to the biography of Padmasambhava (attributed to Yeshe Tsogyal), his trident was an important aspect of his practice, the points standing for victory over the three poisons -- attraction, aversion, confusion/ignorance. In Dza Patrul Rinpoche's instructions for visualizing Guru Rinpoche, the three points represent essence, nature and compassionate energy, but they also stand for his mastery over the three times: past, present, and future.

This unique piece has been hand crafted by a Tibetan family who have been making ritual items for more than 50 years. It is based on a 15th C trident from East Tibet that is now housed in a museum collection. The base of the iron shaft has a five-prong iron vajra. The three points at the apex are engulfed with lively copper flames and flames also issue forth from the mouth of a laughing skull. The shaft itself is decorated with brass inlay in the damascened style made famous in Derge, East Tibet.

Material: Iron with Copper Flames and
Shaft inlaid with brass in the Derge style.
approx 20 inches x 6.5 inches

Tip: If rust appears on any of your ritual objects made from iron then gently apply olive oil with a toothbrush (used only for this purpose) and dry with a soft dry cloth.
Rare Ritual Iron Vajra Hammer
Rare Ritual Iron Vajra Hammer
Our Price: £1,200.00

A heavy ritual iron vajra hammer (Skt: Vajramudgara, Tibetan: Dorje Towa) based on a known Tibetan example dating to the 15th C. The iron vajra hammer is a potent symbol of supreme wisdom and its ability to destroy ignorance. It is a weapon often wielded by the Dharmapalas and protectors such as Garwa Nagpo. Here it represents the ability to smash all opposition that may hinder the practitioner on the path to enlightenment. They are also used in rituals to drive pegs into the ground and thus help define the ritual space and area to be protected. The damascened style of decoration was very popular in Derge, East Tibet and here the hammer is beautifully inlaid with brass.

This hammer was a special commission and is not available elsewhere.
Hand crafted in Deradhun, India by a maker of ritual phurbas.
see a 15th C example here

15.5 inches x 5.5 inches

Tip: If rust starts to appear on any of your iron ritual items, apply some olive oil with a toothbrush (used for this purpose only) and rub away the residue with a clean dry cloth. For very stubborn areas simply use wire wool.

Very Rare Natural Rock Crystal Sphere
Our Price: £800.00

A spectacular looking rock crystal sphere. It is now almost impossible to find natural crystal spheres without cloudiness, internal fractures or inclusions, so examples such as this are seldom seen.

A Dzogchen master will sometimes use a crystal sphere for his or her direct introduction to the nature of mind.

It means a spoon may once have started life as several pieces of silver jewellery.
