The ritual scepter (vajra, rdo-rje) and bell (ghanta, dril-bu) are the most important ritual elements in Vajrayana Buddhism. The vajra, from which Vajrayana Buddhism takes its name, symbolizes the active male aspect of enlightenment often equated with skillful means, compassion, or bliss. The vajra evolved from the thunderbolt-scepter wielded by the Vedic god Indra.
