Vajrakilaya, also called Vajrakila and Dorje Phurba, is a wrathful Tantric meditation deity whose practices are most often performed by disciples of the Nyingma order. Vajrakilaya's practices are particularly effective methods for removing obstacles and obstructions, and for destroying and purifying negative forces.
Vajrakilaya is also called as Dorje Phurba or Vajrakumara is the wrathful Heruka Vajrakilaya is the yidam deity. This Thangka is handpainted in Bhaktapur Nepal by Master Thangka Artist.
He embodies the enlightened activity of all the buddhas and whose practice is famous for being the most powerful for removing obstacles, destroying the forces hostile to compassion and purifying the spiritual pollution so prevalent in this age. Vajrakilaya is one of the eight deities of Kagye.
He is a wrathful yidam deity presented in yab-yum embracing his consort Diptachakra. Vajrakila is painted dark blue with four legs, six arms, three faces.
His two principle hands clasp a Vajrakilaya Kila.
The Sanskrit word Vajrakila is a composite of the words Vajra here meaning diamond & Kila meaning peg or short stake.
The blade of peg is a blue three-sided diamond crystal which symbolically used to free humans from the Principle
Three Negative Energies by binding & then transmuting each into the three wisdom energies of love, compassion & understanding.
The diamond represents incorruptibility & strength over another form. The Kila is a symbolic spiritual object rather than a weapon.
The pommel of the Kila is a five-pronged vajra with each prong representing one of the five Transcendent Buddhas & the energy of lightning.
What is a Thangka?
A thangka, variously spelled as thangka, tangka, thanka, or tanka (Nepali pronunciation: [ˈथान्का]; Tibetan: ཐང་ཀ་; Nepal Bhasa: पौभा), is a Tibetan Buddhist painting on cotton, silk appliqué, usually depicting a Buddhist deity, scene, or mandala. Thangkas are traditionally kept unframed and rolled up when not on display, mounted on a textile backing somewhat in the style of Chinese scroll paintings, with a further silk cover on the front. So treated, thangkas can last a long time, but because of their delicate nature, they have to be kept in dry places where moisture will not affect the quality of the silk. Most thangkas are relatively small, comparable in size to a Western half-length portrait, but some are extremely large, several meters in each dimension; these were designed to be displayed, typically for very brief periods on a monastery wall, as part of religious festivals. Most thangkas were intended for personal meditation or instruction of monastic students. They often have elaborate compositions including many very small figures. A central deity is often surrounded by other identified figures in a symmetrical composition. Narrative scenes are less common but do appear.
Thangka serves as an important teaching tool depicting the life of the Buddha, various influential lamas and other deities and bodhisattvas. One subject is The Wheel of Life (Bhavachakra), which is a visual representation of the Abhidharma teachings (Art of Enlightenment). The term may sometimes be used of works in other media than painting, including reliefs in metal and woodblock prints. Today printed reproductions at poster size of painted thangka are commonly used for devotional as well as decorative purposes. Many tangkas were produced in sets, though they have often subsequently become separated.
Thangka performs several different functions. Images of deities can be used as teaching tools when depicting the life (or lives) of the Buddha, describing historical events concerning important Lamas, or retelling myths associated with other deities. Devotional images act as the centerpiece during a ritual or ceremony and are often used as mediums through which one can offer prayers or make requests. Overall, and perhaps most importantly, religious art is used as a meditation tool to help bring one further down the path to enlightenment. The Buddhist Vajrayana practitioner uses a thanka image of their yidam, or meditation deity, as a guide, by visualizing "themselves as being that deity, thereby internalizing the Buddha qualities"tangkas hang on or beside altars, and may be hung in the bedrooms or offices of monks and other devotees.
