Finest Quality Bell and Dorje with Case

2   |  

There is only one man in Nepal that makes these amazing bell and dorjes with copper case.  Set includes a 7 metal bell with a clear tone and exquisite carving and an 8 pronged dorje with amazing detail.  The case is handmade with brass and copper.  It features an image of Garuda and double dorje designs along with the Eight Auspicious Symbols.

The hollow of the bell symbolizes the wisdom cognizing emptiness.  The clapper represents the sound of emptiness.  The eight lotus petals on the bell are the four mothers and four goddesses, and the vase represents the vase containing the nectar of accomplishment.  Paired with the dorje, the bell represents wisdom.  As wisdom and method are an undivided unity, so the dorje and bell are never parted or employed separately.

Entire case measures approximately 7 3/4" tall.  Bell is about 7 1/2" tall and 3 1/2" wide.  Dorje measures about 4 1/2" long.

Mind blown!

I recently found Dharmashop after moving to the midwest from NYC, discovering that Himalayan culture and art is nonexistent (Native American culture is another story, which I am grateful for). Sadly, I lost ALLL my Buddhist accoutrements and ritual implements during my move. I was very sad and almost resigned myself, thinking it was karmic.... and then I stumbled upon the Dharmashop! Sad no more! This bell and dorje set it unbelievable. Yes, artistically but musically too. It is far more superior than any other one I’ve ever heard, never mind owned. I knew it would be visually stunning, given the photo and the value of it, but I was unprepared for the effect of the sound of the bell. I am very grateful for its existence and its maker. Thank you!

Very special, handmade, feel very traditional and sacred

I knew from the online listing this was a special bell and vajra, and I loved the copper case and mantras on the bell and case (Om Mani Padme Hum). But nothing prepared me for how special this bell and dorje really is. The feel is weighty and solid. The craftsmanship is clearly artisan level. It has no feeling of mass production. The mantras and designs (vajras, etc) on the bell are deeply embossed, the face of Prajnaparimita is unusually detailed, and it has been a real benefit to my daily practice. It feels empowered on delivery, you could say. The case is extraordinary, with the Mahakala face, the Om Mane Padme Hum mantra, and solid copper casing, hinge and unique traditional clasp. It feels handmade. No one could regret investing in this set, other than, the beautiful workmanship might inpire craving:) (Joking).
