The vishvavajra or the double dorje is a ritual implement that is used sparingly, yet is replete with spiritual meaning. The vajra is a staple of the Vajrayan tradition of Buddhism and encapsulates the twin qualities of indestructibility and irresistible force (in Sanskrit, the word for both 'diamond' and 'thunderbolt' is vajra, which leads us to the two qualities). Double dorje is simply a vajra with four heads instead of two, jutting out into the four cardinal directions. A careful glance at this vajra, painstakingly sourced from Nepal, will reveal that its prongs meet at the ends, indicative of the quality of peace. In addition to the significance of the vajra, the vishvavajra is highly symbolic of the principle of absolute stability. Mounted on a stand for you to decorate your space with, this visvavajra will add a layer of spiritual solemnity to any surroundings.
