SKU: VKZ2026


Gold-Plated Statue For The Practice Of Vajrakilaya

We have exclusively hand-craved the Practice Of Vajrakilaya statue using traditional Himalayan crafting methods. Vajrakilaya Yidam, also known as Dorje Phurba in Tibetan, is depicted with Khorlo Gyedunma, his consort. We are a group of sculptors who have been practicing our craft for many years. He holds the magical phurba dagger, which has three blades and a magical moment, in his two hands. One of the three main barriers to spiritual consciousness is removed by the three blades of the phurba dagger. The three obstacles are sensual desire, ignorance, and hostility. We have molded the figurine using the copper body, onto which we have hand-carved every fine detail of the deity. We used a hammer and small chisels to hand-carve the intricate design patterns. To do delicate carvings, artists must have decades of experience as he has to create intricate design patterns on a small surface area. He has to fulfill every minute detail on the statue based on the traditional iconography in Buddhist scriptures. Then we gilded the figurine using genuine 24K gold. The process took us months and months of hard work to complete. This statue weighs about 9.43 kg.

This figurine of Vajrakilaya with Consort will be a perfect gift from Nepal to a devotee like you that will aid you in your practices and regular activities such as meditation and yoga.

Vajrakilaya (Dorje Phurpa), also known as Vajrakumara (Dorje Zhonu, Youthful Vajra), is the wrathful Heruka deity that embodies the enlightened activity of all the Buddhas. Vajrakilaya is one of the eight Heruka deities of the Nyingma tantras. Vajrakilaya is also the personal meditational deity of Guru Padmasambhava. He practiced meditation on Vajrakilaya when many obstacles manifested before his display of attaining enlightenment.
