The Dorje and Bell

The Dorje and Bell

The Dorje and Bell; held by a Tibetan Lama during “Losar” or New Year celebration are simultaneously used during prayer.

The Dorje, held in the right hand represents compassion and skillful means, and the Bell, held in the left represents wisdom. Together these ritual implements represent the inseparability of wisdom and compassion in the enlightened mindstream.
