Bell and Dorjee
Bell and Dorjee are the principle ritual objects of Tantric Buddhism. As with all objects connected with Tibetan Buddhism, they are highly symbolic.
The Bell, or “Drilbu” in Tibetan, is a ritual symbolic of wisdom. Dorje is Tibetan for indestructible diamond scepter, and is symbolic of compassion. Together, the Bell and Dorje symbolize the perfect union of wisdom and compassion necessary to achieve enlightenment.
Traditionally they are used by monks, nuns, and lay people during various rituals and practices. Used together as a set, the Ghanta is held in the left hand and the Dorje in the right.
