Explanation of these three everyday objects

Every Buddhist practitioner in Tibet and every officiant of a ritual has three objects to which Tibetans attribute a deep and meticulous symbolism. These are the vajra, the bell and the mala.

Vajra, in Tibetan dorje. It is arguably the most important symbol of Tibetan Buddhism. The term means "diamond" and refers to the indestructible nature of the mind in itself, awakening, which is both imperishable and indivisible. The small scepter seems to be, originally, the diamond lightning of the god Indra, it is a mark of royalty and power.

(1) the five upper points represent the five wisdoms, five facets of the diamond that is the awakened mind:

mirror-like wisdom, which means that the awakened mind, just like a perfectly polished mirror, clearly reflects all things, possesses the ability to know everything, without any confusion.

the wisdom of equality, which recognizes that all the phenomena of samsara (my ordinary world) and nirvana (the pure fields or paradise of the Buddhas) are of an equal nature in that they are of a unique essence: emptiness

the wisdom of distinction, which denotes that the awakened mind perceives not only the emptiness of all phenomena (which is what the wisdom of equality operates) but also, in an unconfounding simultaneity, all phenomena as they manifest themselves;

the fulfilling wisdom, which allows the Buddhas to create pure fields and emanations working for the good of beings;

the wisdom of universal space, which indicates that all phenomenes, beyond all concept and duality, dwell in the pure knowledge of the spirit.


2° At the same time as the five wisdoms, these five upper points symbolize the Five Conquerors or five main Male Buddhas on a mystical level. The five lower points symbolize the Five Female Buddhas.

3° The mouths of makara (sea monster) from which emerge the tips denote the liberation of the cycle of existences.

4° The eight upper petals represent the eight male bodhisattvas, in other words eight large bodhisattvas dwelling in celestial domains.

5° The eight lower petals are the eight female bodhisattvas.

6 ° The round part in the middle designates emptiness.



The bell, in Tibetan drilbou. It symbolizes, in a general way, emptiness (emptiness does not mean that nothing exists, but that phenomena do not exist as we perceive them because of the veil of ignorance that covers our mind).

1° Its hollow part represents emptiness and its beat the "sound" of emptiness (i.e. its dynamics potentially containing the manifestation)

2° The lotus with eight petals symbolizes the eight female bodhisattvas, associated with the idea of emptiness like all female deities.

3 ° The vase contains the nectar of the accomplishments.

4° The face on the handle is that of the female deity Prajnaparamitam symbol of the knowledge of emptiness.

5 ° The vajra contains its prope symbolism as seen above.

THE MALA
The mala, trengwa, in Tibetan is the buddhist's rosary, the object from which the monk (or even the lay practitioner) almost never separates, holding it in his hand or wrapped around the wrist.
The mala is first of all a utilitarian onjet: it serves as a tactile support for the recitation of mantras, at the same time as it is used to count them if one has set to repeat a defined number.
The mala is composed of 108 strung pearls, which justifies its name, since it simply means "garland" (of pearls). The different components each contain a symbolic meaning specify: The large pearl (or Buddha's head) that closes the loop repeats the knowledge of emptiness. The small cone that surmounts it is the mark of emptiness itself. The cord on which the beads are strung must, theoretically, be a braid of several threads:
three sons symbolize the "three Bodies" of a Buddha (Absolute Body, Body of Glory and Body of Emanation);
five sons symbolize the "five wisdoms" or "five families" of Buddhas (Buddha family, vajra family, jewel family, lotus family, activity family)
nine sons symbolize the primordial Buddha Vajradhara and the eight great bodhisattvas.

Buddha having attained enlightenment under a sacred fig tree, pipal seeds are the most traditional material for making malas. These seeds patinate and take on a beautiful shine over time called "porcelain layer". Our seeds come from hainan island known for growing and drying the finest quality in the world. Be careful many specialized site and stores name these seeds as Lotus seeds by mistake.

Les DZIS
Our contemporary Dzis are made according to tradition, by Tibetan craftsmen located at the crossroads of Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet in the Tibetan prefecture of Gyaltran at 4000 meters above sea level.
The stone is agate, and the drawings on its surface are made by the hand of man, but according to a secret technique. A mixture of plant and lead is applied to their surface, the whole thing is cooked (at about 1200 degrees); at the exit and once the mixture is removed the drawings appear. According to some sources, some of the oldest Dzi were colored FROM THE INSIDE using secret techniques lost for a long time...

A lot of counterfeits are circulating, as well as modern DZIs sold as antiques at astronomical prices.

The Dzis that can be translated as "brilliantly polished", "luminous" are agate pearls of elongated shape having on their surfaces a decoration of various and varied geometric shapes, but each having a very specific meaning. Dzi are considered by Tibetans to be powerful protections. According to legend, these stones are not of earthly origin, but, shaped by the gods and sown on earth so that whoever finds them, has a better Karma.

The Dzi is a Tibetan pearl, of distant origin, bringing many mystical benefits and benefits to its wearer. It is a Tibetan talisman or amulet, the king of good luck charms, sometimes worshipped as a true deity. The success of the Tibetan pearl comes from its multiple eyes, up to 21.
Dzis are supposed to bring good fortune, ward off evil spirits, and protect its wearer from dangers and accidents, and even bring longevity and good health.

The DZI originates from the Central Asian region and is usually found in a region that covers Afghanistan, Iran, Tibet, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Buthan to Burma and Thailand. They are found in many sizes and shapes, with multiple eyes and stripes. Tibetans cherish these pearls and consider them hereditary jewels. The meaning of the Tibetan word "Dzi" translates to "brilliance, clarity, splendor". In Mandarin Chinese, dzi are called "pearl of the sky". Tibetans recognize, without being envious or jealous, the qualities of brilliant people, those people who shine intellectually and attract the attention and admiration of all. For Tibetans, wearing a Dzi pearl can develop in everyone that natural brilliance called Talent.
