"A vajra is a ritual weapon symbolizing the properties of a diamond (indestructibility) and a thunderbolt (irresistible force)." - (Wikipedia)
The Vajra (Dorje in Tibetan) is a male representation symbolizing upaya or skills/skillful means, compassion, form or appearance.

Its accompanying bell is the female symbol, denoting prajna or intelligence, wisdom of  'emptiness'. In that context, 'empty' means empty of inherent existence.  Vajra & bell together represent inseparably of compassion & emptiness (form & emptiness) in the enlightened mindstream. Form is emptiness, emptiness is form, as it states in the Heart Sutra.


Padmasambhava (Lotus-born) took Tantric Buddhism to Tibet in the 8th Century. He established Samye, the first monastery there. Tsogyal Yeshe,(Wisdom Lake Queen), his main karmamudra consort, a wisdom dakini (sky-dancer), was a great spiritual teacher in her own right. Via Consort Yoga, they achieved the Rainbow Body. BTW, earlier, he had a vision of Vajrayogini at Pharping. Also, he flew, riding on a pregnant tigress, his consort had taken that form.

Autobiographical note: took Guru Rinpoche Empowerment with Tai Situpa at Samye Ling (Scotland) in 1988. Samye In Scotland is closer than Tibet, for me anyway, all being relative.
