This a Beautiful 1970's Carved Wood Phurwa, sometimes called a "magic dagger"from Tibet. A Phurwa is a tantric ritual object used to conquer evil spirits and to destroy obstacles. It is utilized in magic rituals by high level tantric practitioners. The word Phurwa is used primarily in Central Tibet, while the word phurba is used more often used. The component phur in the word Phurwa is a Tibetan rendering of the Sanskrit word kila, meaning peg or nail. The Phurwa is an implement that nails down as well as binds. It was thus by stabbing a Phurwa into the earth, and thereby nailing and binding the evil spirits, that Padmasambhava, regarded as the inventor of this implement, consecrated the ground on which the Samye monastery was established in the eighth century. This Magic Dagger would be a wonderful addition to your collection or home.
