This masterpiece practice implement was modeled after a phurba found in one of Dudjom Lingpa's termas. "Terma" is the Tibetan word for a Dharma treasure full of teachings and practices for our present time hidden by Padmasambhava and his disciples. This phurba was made by the renowned Buddhist workshop, Natsog Dorje, which is an artisan sculpture studio and foundry workshop dedicated to developing entirely authentic ritual objects and images to support the Vajrayana Secret Mantra practices. A horse's head protrudes from the base of the handle, signifying the deity Hayagriva. Hayagriva is an incredibly effective practice for turbulent chaotic times, working quickly to restore balance and bring benefit to beings’ minds and thus the outer elements, able to cure disease and to eliminate demonic forces. Padmasambhava himself achieved deathlessness through practicing Hayagriva. The detail and quality of this piece are amazing. The photos of this phurba speak for themselves. In hand, it is quite simply stunning to behold. This is one of those rare treasures that comes around every once in a blue moon. The blade is made of meteorite, which has an interesting striped surface and an "out of this world" energy! From Padmasambava's own hands to Dudjom Linpa's and then to yours... May all beings benefit.
Full length of phurba: 7 inches
Stand not included.
