A Khadga is a symbolic sword known as the The Flaming Sword of Wisdom, an important item for use in Tibetan tantric rituals.

It is important feature within the iconography of Manjushri, the god of wisdom. It is said that it destroys ignorance, which is the nemesis of freedom to the ties to worldly attachments.

The sword draws power from wisdom and clarity and destroys illusions and ignorance that stand in the way of enlightenment.

It cuts the karmic ties from previous lives.

This curved version is symbolic of the sword and is decorated with brass flames, with Makara's head on the hilt and a half vajra on the handle.

The more rare version has a curved, not straight blade.

Weight: 450 g

In good condition, rusted iron blade but undamaged, the bronze and copper has a lovely antique patina.
