Different types of Vajras..
The earliest mention of the vajra is in the Rigveda, part of the 4 Vedas.. It is described as the weapon of Indra, the god of heaven and the chief deity of the Rigvedic pantheon..The Rigveda states that the weapon was made for Indra by Tvastar, the maker of divine instruments.. The associated story describes Indra using the vajra, which he held in his hand, to slay the asura Vritra, who took the form of a serpent..

Vajra is a Sanskrit word meaning both Thunderbolt & Diamond..

The protective tent and protective spheres sometimes called 'vajra tent,' are meditated upon in Vajrayana sadhana practices to prevent any negative influence from entering the practice space..It is usually done after expelling the obstructing forces and preserved throughout the whole duration of the practice..The traditional example to illustrate this is of thoroughly locking oneself in after expelling thieves out of the house..In Buddhism the vajra is the symbol of Vajrayana, 1 of the 3 major branches of Buddhism. Vajrayana is translated as "Thunderbolt Way" or "Diamond Way" and can imply the thunderbolt experience of Buddhist enlightenment or bodhi.. It also implies indestructibility, just as diamonds are harder than other gemstones..Visualisation of protective spheres can be more or less elaborate..Your emanates wrathful deities, weapons and masses of flame..At the same time, the wrathful weapons and flames you sent out earlier to expel the negative forces now return towards you..

The vajra is made up of several parts..In the center is a sphere which represents Sunyata, the primordial nature of the universe, the underlying unity of all things.. Emerging from the sphere are two 8 petaled lotus flowers.. One represents the phenomenal world (or in Buddhist terms Samsara), the other represents the noumenal world (Nirvana).. This is one of the fundamental dichotomies which are perceived by the unenlightened.. The physical manifestation of the vajra, also called dorje in this context, is the male organ..Sunyata, translated into English as emptiness and voidness..The term dichotomy is from the Greek language dichotomía "dividing in two" from dícha "in two, asunder" and tom? "a cutting, incision"..The term noumenon is generally used in contrast with or in relation to phenomenon, which refers to anything that can be apprehended by or is an object of the senses..A rough equivalent in English would be "something that is thought", or "the object of an act of Thought"... got hit by the thunderbolt, eh?” Fabrizzio said, clapping him on the shoulder.. Even Calo became Friendly, patting him on the arm and saying, “Easy, man, easy,” but with affection.. As if Michael had been hit by a car... Fabrizzio handed him a wine bottle and Michael took a long slug..What the ell are you damn sheep lovers talking about?..
