Detail Photos

This piece, as can be seen from the iconographic details, was made for phurba practices based on the Hayagriva termas. It is brass and the condition is very good, with some expected signs of wear and age.

In the Tibetan Buddhist tantric tradition there is an ancient practice that involves the subjugation of internal and external malevolent forces with the use of ritual and empowered daggers, known as phurbas. In the hands of tantric adepts, the phurba is not just a dagger but rather a tangible manifestation of powerful deities such as Dorje Phurba (Vajrakilaya) or Tamdrin (Hayagriva).
