Good condition, see description

Phurba. Tibet Second Half XX Century

Length 38 cm

Particularly powerful Tibetan ritual that defeats negative forces and emotions

And is also for managing past, present and future
The phurba is perfect for healings, meditation, demons extermination, negative forces and stopping attacks through black magic.


Great state of conservation

Most of what is known of the Indian kīla lore has come by way of Tibetan culture. Scholars such as F. A. Bischoff, Charles Hartman and Martin Boord have shown that the Tibetan literature widely asserts that the Sanskrit for their term phurba is kīlaya (with or without the long i). However, as Boord describes it, "all dictionaries and Sanskrit works agree the word to be kīla (or kīlaka). I suppose this [discrepancy] to result from an indiscriminate use by Tibetans of the dative singular kīlaya. This form would have been familiar to them in the simple salutation namo vajrakīlaya (homage to Vajrakīla) from which it could easily be assumed by those unfamiliar with the technicalities of Sanskrit that the name of the deity is Vajrakīlaya instead of Vajrakīla. It should also be noted that the term (vajra)kīlaya is frequently found in Sanskrit texts (as well as in virtually every kīlamantra) legitimately used as the denominative verb 'to spike,' 'transfix,' 'nail down,' etc."[2]

  • The painting description was WRONG. I don't know if the responsible is the seller or the expert. The data and the origin/school was totally wrong. Anyway, the quality/cost relation was not bad at all.

    La plaque publicitaire était présentée comme étant en étain, ce qui justifiait son prix (elle aurait pu être en fer, c'était pareil).Or, elle est en tôle très fine, comme dans les copies de plaques.
