Description

Buddhist Thangka of Vajrakilaya is a beautiful hand-painted thangka in cotton canvas. Vajrakila is usually the first introduction to a wrathful tantric deity. Vajrakila is a powerful personification of the diamond-tipped peg symbolizing the power of ‘one-pointed’ concentration which transfixes negative energies that obscure spiritual truth & awakening.

Vajrakaliya is depicted at the center of the thanks. He is a wrathful yidam deity presented in Yab-yum embracing his consort Diptachakra.

Iconography of Vajrakaliya

Vajrakila is painted dark blue with four legs, six arms, three faces. His two principal hands clasp a VajrakilayaKila. The Sanskrit word Vajrakila is a composite of the words Vajra here meaning diamond & Kila meaning peg or short stake.

The blade of the peg is a blue three-sided diamond crystal which symbolically used to free humans from the Principle Three Negative Energies [greed, hatred & delusion] by binding & then transmuting each into the three wisdom energies of love, compassion & understanding. The diamond represents incorruptibility & strength over other forms.

The Kila is a symbolic spiritual object rather than a weapon. The pommel of the Kila is a five-pronged vajra with each prong representing one of the five Transcendent Buddhas & the energy of lightning. Wooden Kila is favored by shamans for healing & energetic work is often carved with the three faces of Vajrakila being one joyful, one peaceful & one wrathful. The Tibetan word for Vajra is Dorje.

Mantra of Vajrakaliya

The mantra of Vajrakaliya is om vajra kili kiliya sarva bighanen bam hum phat.
