Teaching, practice and tsog pūjā
Vajrakīlaya, a wrathful manifestation of Vajrasattva, eradicates ignorance and emotional afflictions that cause obstacles in our daily life and our dharma practice. The symbol of the compassionate wrathful activity is the phurpa, a ritual dagger which stabs the obstacles, thereby subduing and transforming their destructive potential.
Vajrakīlaya in essence represents our own pure inner nature, that was never stained by the turmoils of mental afflictions. The activity of Vajrakīlaya is especially effective in pacifying social conflicts and disturbances, and mending breaches of the tantric samaya, like the breaches of the bonds between Vajrayāna practitioners.
