The Phurba is a dagger to defeat demons. It was introduced into Tibetan Buddhism by Phadmasambhava and is a symbol of the transmutation of negative forces.
Often made of stones, bone, or iron, Phurba daggers from Tibetan Buddhist temples are easily recognizable by their triple-sided blade. Used in rituals to drive out unwanted spirits, Phurba acts spiritually to immobilize demonic spirits and sometimes kill them in the hope that they will be reincarnated in better places.
Each component of the Phurba has its own meaning. The dagger blade 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-bladed design is also designed 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 over hatred.
The Phurba handle represents wisdom and is often shaped like an eight-sided bulb with symmetrical knots at each end. There are various interpretations to the presence of these nodes. From the conviction that Nirvana is locked inside, to the belief that the different sections of the knots contain the paradises of several gods. Going to the desire for a formless, representing the fact of being informed in the kingdom of the Buddhas.
The top of the handle often displays the three wrathful deities of Yamantaka, Amrita Kundalini, and Hayagriva. Yamantaka, the white face, symbolizes the body and the destruction of hatred. Amrita, her face colored in blue, symbolizes the spirit and the destruction of the illusion. Hayagriva, the red face, symbol of speech and destruction of greed.
In many illustrations, Phurba's dagger is represented 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.
