  Dorje - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dorje is a Tibetan word referring to a ritual object held in the right hand of a Lama while preforming religious ceremonies.
As a sacred symbol of Tibetan Buddhism, the Dorje represents the 'thunderbolt of enlightenment'; an abrupt change in human consciousness which is recognised by all the great religions as a pivotal episode in the lives of mystics and saints.
In the Buddhist religious ceremony, a bell, symbolizing the feminine principle (the wisdom of emptiness), is paired with the dorje, symbolizing the masculine principle (that of compassion expressed through skillful means).
