About the Art

Vajra Kila is the five-pronged ritualistic object that has the depiction of Vajra, the symbol of “thunderbolt” and “diamond”. In one of the “Yana” (Section) of Buddhism, the Vajrayana, Vajra Kila is used in the ritualistic ceremony. The Kila or Phurba is the three-sided peg, stake, or nail-like ritual implement associated with Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, Bōn, as well as Indian Vedic traditions. The Vajra Kila signifies a sense of stability on a prayer ground during any ceremonies. The Kila represents fierce, wrathful, piercing, and affixing energy.

वज्रकिल पाँचवटा प्रमुख कर्मकांक्षीय वस्तु हो जुन वज्रको चित्रण, "गर्जन" र "हीरा" को प्रतीक हो। बौद्ध धर्मको "यान" मध्ये एक, वज्रयान, वज्रकिललाई धार्मिक रीतिथिति समारोहमा प्रयोग गरिएको छ। किल वा फुरबा हिन्दु, तिब्बती, बौद्ध, बौन, साथसाथै भारतीय वैदिक परम्परासँग सम्बन्धित तीन-पक्षीय खूंटी, खम्बा, वा कीलजस्तो अनुष्ठान हो। वज्रकिलले कुनै पनि समारोहको समयमा प्रार्थना मैदानमा स्थिरताको भावनालाई दर्शाउँछ।
