The Bell called the "Tribu" or "Ganta" in Tibetan symbolize wisdom (female energy), the Vajra also called Dorje symbolizes the method, or the way (male energy).
The Dorje and bell represent the masculine and feminine principles in the cosmos and in the individual's energy body. The Dorje, held in the right hand, represents skilful 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. Looked at separately, each is a great treasure of spiritual meaning.
The stem of the bell rises above this. At its base are lotus petals, representing Prajnaparamita’s lotus throne.
These two instruments give us much to contemplate and meditate upon. Deepening our understanding of what they represent and using them in our practice can be very valuable tools on our path. By rubbing its rim with a mallet it produces a sustained ring. These alpha sound waves are producing a deeply relaxing & soothing space, bringing a person to the present moment and connected to a higher realm at the same time.
In a meditation state, listen to how the sound of the bell takes birth from Silence, how it sings and tones, and then listen to the disappearing sound returning to silence.
