Handbell & Dorje (Ghanta & Vajra) Sets

The handbell and dorje are the principal ritual objects of Tantric Buddhism. The bell represents yin or feminine energy. The dorje represents yang or masculine energy. Traditionally they are used together, the bell in the left hand and the dorje in the right. The use of the bell and dorje together symbolilzes the union of the feminine wisdom of the Void and masculine compassion, or skillful action, which is enlightenment.
