It represents the power to destroy ignorance and reach enlightenment. It is a very important ritual implement tool. A Dorje, also called a vajra, is the symbol of Vajrayana. It represents the thunderbolt enlightenment. The vajra is one of the most important ritual implement tools in Buddhism. Some Tibetan Buddhist deities have the word vajra prefixed to their names such as Vajrasattva. A phurpa, also called magic dagger, is a tantric ritual item used to conquer evil spirits and to destroy obstacles. It is normally used in magic rituals by highly achieved Tantric practitioners. The practitioner normally meditate first before using the phurba to invite the spirit into the phurba.
