Beautifully detailed and richly symbolic in Buddhist traditions, the Tibetan Double Dorje was originally fashioned as a type of fist-iron ritual tool held in the right hand during religious ceremonies. Dorje is a Sanskrit word meaning thunderbolt and diamond. The symbolic nature of a diamond - strong with the ability to cut any surface but not be cut itself and the thunderbolt - a powerful and irresistible force of enlightenment.
The Tibetan Dorje represents firmness and power of spirit; a symbol for the nature of reality, or sunyata, indicating endless creativity, potency, and skillful activity. The double Dorje represents that which cannot be destroyed, but which destroys all evil. Known for it's double facets, the shape of the Dorje symbolizes the two forms of truth, relative and absolute.
The Dorje represents the indestructible reality of Buddhas Vajra mind as the unshakable throne or ground of enlightenment. In Buddhism the Vajra / Dorje is the symbol of Vajrayana, one of the three major branches of Buddhism. Vajrayana is translated as "Thunderbolt Way” or "Diamond Way" and can imply the thunderbolt experience of Buddhist enlightenment or Bodhi. It also implies indestructibility, just as diamonds are harder than other gemstones
