In Buddhism the Dorje is the symbol of Vajrayana, one of the three major branches of Buddhism.
It is a ritual tool or spiritual implement which is symbolically used by Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism, all of which are traditions of Dharma. The Dorje are often used together with a bell during ritual and meditation, often at the start of a chanting session to clear the mind and create focus. Always hold the bell in the left hand and the dorje in the right. Ring the bell with your left hand or you can also strike it with the dorje. The sweet sound of the bell resonates through the air, clearing the space and creating harmony.
