Vajra (ヴァジュラ, Vajura?) is a weapon appearing in the Vedic Mythology of ancient India. It was a weapon crafted by Tvastar, the maker of divine instruments, using the bones of the sage, Dadhichi. It became the symbol of Divinity of Indra, the God of Lightning, and the Indestructible Diamond Pounder (金剛杵, Kongōsho?) weapon carried by the gods of Buddhism. It was held in one interpretation to be a manifestation of Indra’s lightning, which is supported by its depictions as a golden projectile and its appearance unbefitting of a conventional weapon.[1] Vajra was initially known by its proper name of Vjaya when Indra was first introduced to India as a phenomenon that spread from the Aryans. Along with Indra, whose name changed to Taishakuten, his divine symbol also had its name changed and became known as Vajra after the age of Buddhism as India's main religion began.[2]
