The Phurba is a dagger to defeat demons. It was introduced into Tibetan Buddhism by Phadmasambhava and is a symbol of transmutation of negative forces.
Often made of stones, bones, or iron, Phurba daggers from Tibetan Buddhist temples are easily recognizable by their triple-sided blade. Used in rituals to drive away unwanted spirits, Phurba acts spiritually to immobilize demonic spirits and sometimes kill them in the hope that they will reincarnate in better places.
Each component of Phurba has its own meaning. The blade of the dagger represents the method, with each of the three sides representing the three-spirited worlds. The tip reconciling all three to form a harmonious global axis. The triple-blade design is also intended to simultaneously transform the world's three poisons into positive energies. These poisons are ignorance, greed and aggression. Enemies of Buddhism who may require a lifetime to overcome in the quest for enlightenment. The blade is often seen as indestructible and lit with a fire to burn above the hate.
The Handle of the Phurba represents wisdom and is often modeled as an eight-sided bulb with symmetrical nodes at each end. There are various interpretations to the presence of these nodes. From the belief that Nirvana is locked inside, to the belief that the different sections of the knots contain the paradises of several gods. By going as far as the desire for a formless form, representing the fact of being shapeless in the kingdom of the Buddhas.
The top of the handle often displays a vajra or dorje in Tibetan, lightning destroying ignorance
In many illustrations, the Phurba dagger is depicted in a simple form, due to its small size. However, in its three-dimensional form, this tiny blade is most often depicted with many Buddhist symbols and demonstrates its focus on purging evil.
