Re: Re: Old Metal Rattle
For Rachael in Illinois. I have no additional information on these beyond what I posted in 2008. Today I researched the web and I’d like to suggest that you go into: http://www.khandro.net/ritual_vajra.htm.
There you will find much information on the dorje or vajra. However, I still believe that these are not true dorjes. They are not elaborate enough to be paired with the Buddhist ritual bell. Yet they have a similar look. I’m sorry that I can add nothing more. These bells have puzzled me for decades.
