SYMBOLISM OF DORJE
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 uncontroduction 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.
