Buddhist Kila, Phurba, Kilaya, Copper & Brass Ritual Tool, Himalayan Shamanic Implement, Blessings, Bind Negative Energies, 6.25" L
The Kīla is one of many iconographic representations of divine "symbolic attributes".
Most of what is known of Kila lore has come by way of Tibetan culture.
Scholars have shown that the Tibetan literature widely asserts that the Sanskrit for their term phurba is kīlaya and is frequently found in Sanskrit texts legitimately used as the denominative verb 'to spike,' 'transfix,' 'nail down,' etc.
One of the principal methods of working with the kīla and to actualize its essence-quality is to pierce the earth with it; sheath it; or as is common with Himalayan shamanic traditions, to penetrate it vertically, point down into a basket, bowl or cache of rice (or other soft grain if the kīla is wooden).
The kīla is used as a ritual implement to signify stability on a prayer ground during ceremonies, and only those initiated in its use, or otherwise empowered, may wield it.
It is also a shamanic implement, used for healing, harmonizing, and energy work.

Brass and copper....
Wooden stand is unavailable.
No two are exactly alike, as slight variations in color are common and are not considered defects.
The kīla affixes the elemental process of 'Space' (Sanskrit: Ākāśa) to the Earth, thereby establishing an energetic continuum.
As a tool of exorcism, the kīla may be employed to hold demons or thoughtforms in place (once they have been expelled from their hosts, for example) in order that their mindstream may be re-directed and their inherent obscurations transmuted.
The pommel of the kīla often bears three faces of Vajrakīla, one joyful, one peaceful, one wrathful, but may bear the umbrella of the ashtamangala or mushroom cap, ishtadevata (like Hayagriva), snow lion, or stupa, among other possibilities.
The handle is often of a vajra, weaving or knotwork design. The handle generally has a triune form as is common to the pommel and blade.
The blade is usually composed of three triangular facets or faces, meeting at the tip.
These represent, respectively, the blade's power to transform the negative energies known as the "three poisons" or "root poisons" of attachment/craving/desire, delusion/ignorance/misconception, and aversion/fear/hate.
More esoterically, the kīla may serve to bind and pin down negative energies or obscurations from the mindstream of an entity, person or thoughtform, including the thoughtform generated by a group, project and so on, to administer purification.
The pommel may be employed in blessings. It is therefore that the kīla is not a physical weapon, but a spiritual implement, and should be regarded as such.
The kīla often bears the epithet Diamantine Dagger of Emptiness.
'Without the phurba (Kila) inside himself, the shaman has no consciousness'...'The shaman himself is the phurba (Kila); he assumes its form in order to fly into other worlds and realities.'

What are Ubique Botanical Perfumes?
Welcome to Pure Perfume
Ubique is Latin for "everywhere", and refers to Omnipresence, the property of being present everywhere.
u-bi-que [oo-bee-kwe; English] adverb, Latin, "Everywhere".
Ubique Botanical Perfumes contain concentrated botanicals. Plant, flower, wood oils, absolutes, tinctures, and concretes are used and may cause an allergic reaction if you have an allergy to these substances. It is always best to begin your fragrant Ubique journey with a sample before purchasing a larger size, but don't wait too long...these are limited creations and they sell out quickly!
• We do not accept returns on perfumes, personal care items, or sale items. Please purchase and try sample sizes before purchasing larger sizes. Thank you!
Botanical Perfume FAQ's
• Keep products in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight
• Avoid using near the eyes or other sensitive areas
• Do not take internally
• Keep out of reach of children and pets
• Our products are 100% free of synthetic ingredients.

As this is pure perfume, only a drop or two is needed. The organic botanical alcohol is NOT drying like the alcohol used in mass marketed perfumes. The EDP's (Eau de Parfum) come in convenient spray bottles.
Mine Rough Stones and Crystals
Mine rough stones are those we procure directly from a mine instead of a mass dealer. These stones are fresh from the earth and have not been previously sold. We prefer mine rough stones as the vibrational qualities are HIGH.
ALL STONES AND CRYSTALS ARE MINED.
One should not expect perfection when purchasing from ANY dealer unless the stone has been cut and polished and is listed as "perfect".
If perfection is desired, please only purchase cut and polished "perfect" stones.
Mine rough stones may have dents, dings, etc. We photograph each stone and describe what we see. We do not sell that which is not of high vibrational quality and authentic.
