Vajra is a Sanskrit word with two meanings, thunderbolt and diamond. It is used as a ritual object to symbolize both the properties of a diamond which represents indestructibility; and a thunderbolt which represents an irresistible force. In addition, it is also a weapon.

The Vajra is a type of club with a ribbed spherical head. The ribs may meet in a ball-shaped top, or they may be separate and end in sharp points with which to stab. The Vajra is used symbolically by the dharma traditions of Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism, and often represents the firmness of spirit and spiritual power. The use of the Vajra as a symbolic and ritual tool, along with Indian religion and culture, spread from India to other parts of Asia.
