The vajra, or dorje, is a symbol from Tibetan Buddhism that signifies the diamondlike essence of Reality. It symbolizes the indestructible nature of the Buddha's wisdom and the victory of knowledge over illusion.

"According to Buddhist teaching, the vajra cleaves ignorance . It breaks it. It shatters it. That's what the vajra does. And you've heard me many times using these various dorjes that you've seen on the altar, the difference in this one (the one that was just given to her) being that it has been consecrated by the daily use of lamas who have handed it down generation to generation. The vajra cleaves ignorance. Now, we all know that ignorance is our greatest enemy. And sometimes we don't want to know. We'd rather be ignorant because we know what we're going to have to do if we know and determine to know and follow the law. So beware the sloth of ignorance. It can hold you in that astral plane that Lanello was just talking about." ECP 12/28/95
