Dril-bu – The Sound of Awareness

refers to the or dril-bu as a representation of the original female , which is traditionally held in the left hand.

When I began practicing Feeding Your Demons with Lama-la in the fall of 2019, Tulku Orgyen P’huntsok Rinpoche of Pemaköd instructed me in the Words of My Perfect Teacher. Though I read then that the face on the bell is that of the Wisdom Mother of Space, Vajradhatvishvari, I didn’t yet have a bell, or consider her face as named until this year. For some Tibetans the face on the bell is Prajnaparamita. Lama Tsultrim knows the face as Dhatvishvari, and the bell itself as a symbol of Prajnaparamita.

Karla Jackson-Brewer, the leader of the New York City , showed me the power of sound and in 2020.

She said that the bell symbolizes emptiness, and reminds us that all things are empty of any inherent existence.
