We often get ideas about the symbolism of the vajra as being tight and wilful. The language of determination can do that!

Jvalamalini looks at the importance of clarity of purpose for simplicity and meaning in life, and the powerful symbol of the vajra. This diamond-thunderbolt symbol is really more about integration then it is about powering through obstacles regardless of what the rest of our being is up to.

From the talk entitled Vajra: Symbol of Integration given at Bristol Buddhist Centre, 2018.
