Special phurba with Garuda image, among others
Garuda is a mythical creature in the Hindu mythology: half man and half eagle. It serves as a mount for the god Vishnu.
The Garudas also are a class of gods (or supernatural creatures) in the Buddhist and Hindu faith.

Comes with varja
The Varja can be considered a weapon for destroying negative immaterial concepts such as ignorance and doubt.

In Tibetan, the Varja is known as a Dorje (dorjay), which can be translated as 'precious stone'. In this meaning it is a means for utilizing the indestructible power of compassion and wisdom.
