Genuine antique ritual dagger from Nepal. The dagger represents the three worlds, three times and three emotional states (happy, somber and sad). Found in different forms and iconographic representations, they are used in healing, grounding, protection and creating harmony.
Phurba's generally have vajra's in the center or "middle world' area, this one has the shaman's basket or Nanglo.
Our in-house authority on Phurbas is one of the few North American's who has been initiated and empowered in Dorje Phurba practice by a very high Lama in the Nyingmapa Sect from Amdo. His experience living among the Jankhri and Tamang shaman groups in Nepal provides academic credibility.
