The Vajra: A Planetary Weapon Of The Ancient Gods


“As a hurled weapon the indestructible thunderbolt (the Vajra) blazed like a meteoric fireball across the heavens, in a maelstrom of thunder, fire and lightning.” — Nitin Kumar

The vajra is the most important ritual implement of Vajrayana Buddhism. In Sanskrit, the word vajra is defined as something hard or mighty, as in a diamond. It symbolizes an impenetrable, immovable and indestructible state of knowledge and enlightenment.

Our knowledge of the vajra goes back to deep antiquity.

Texts indicate that the vajra was not always a symbol of peace and tranquility but something very different. It first appears in ancient India where it was the primary weapon of the Vedic sky-god Indra, the king of the Devas.

According the Hindu Puranas, the evil Asuras, Namuchi and Vritra removed all of the light and moisture from the earth. It made the land inhospitable to living beings.

Indra battled the demon gods unsuccessfully and as a last resort called upon their supreme god Vishnu for help.

Vishnu informed him that only a weapon that was neither solid nor liquid could kill Namuchi and Vritra. Vishnu had the divine carpenter Tvashta fashion Indra a marvelous weapon he could use to vanquish the dreadful Asuras.

This new weapon, the vajra, emitted thunderbolts. With it, Indra annihilated Namuchi and Vritra and returned the much needed light and moisture back to the earth. The Rigveda describes this conflict thus.

[quote_box_center]“Now I describe the glorious deeds of Indra, who holds Vajra. He killed the serpent and made waters flow. He broke the hearts of mountains. He killed the serpent, which was taking refuge in mountain.
“Tvashta made the Vajra for him. Like the cows making sounds, flowing waters reached the sea. Mighty Indra chose Soma, and drank from three containers. Generous Indra held Vajra in his hand, and killed first born among the serpents.” – Rigveda 1.32[/quote_box_center]

The vajra, when used, was thrown at ones opponent. Nitin Kumar, in his article Ritual Implements in Tibetan Buddhism, tells us:

[quote_box_center]“As a hurled weapon the indestructible thunderbolt blazed like a meteoric fireball across the heavens, in a maelstrom of thunder, fire and lightning.”[/quote_box_center]

Traditional images of the vajra depict it as metal shaft with three, five or nine prongs that emanate from lotus blossoms on either end. Originally, according to the ancient Indian text the Rigveda, when Indra used his vajra it had open prongs.

Buddhist legend suggests that Shakyamuni, the Buddah himself, took the vajra from Indra and forced its prongs closed, thus transforming it from a destructive weapon into a peaceful scepter.


Can Weapons Of The Gods, Like The Vajra Be found Around The World?

Scholars contend that there is no relationship between Indian, Greek, Australian, Norse and the cosmology of the Americas. They believe that each civilization conceived of their gods independently and that a deeper, older, universal tradition does not exist.

If this were the case, then the foundation of these societies; their myths, traditions, beliefs and iconography should be unique to them, their location and their history. The tales of war, intrigue and conquest that come out of American history are vastly different from those of England, France, India and China.

So too are the customs, traditions and the symbols that represent the nation. Yet when we look at a wide range of ancient and indigenous groups a pattern of commonality exists. Myths and symbols found in Indian readily appear in the oral and written descriptions of other cultures.

They also appear in their artistic images. These representations seem to transcend time and location.

The symbol of thunder or a thunderbolt as a tool of destruction, for example, surfaces in many ancient civilizations. Mythology unfailingly associates lightning with a sky god, the god of thunder, who uses it as a weapon.

In the western world, the thunderbolt is most readily associated with the Greek sky god Zeus. With it, he defeated the Titans and took control of the Greek pantheon. Myth tells us, that Zeus freed the Cyclopes, the master builders, who were imprisoned in the depths of the underworld – Tartarus.

In gratitude for their release, they gave him a marvelous weapon, the thunderbolt. In another story, Zeus used his formidable weapon to battle the largest and most fearsome creatures in all of Greek mythology, the hundred-headed serpent Typhon.

Early images of Zeus depict show him holding a rod like thunderbolt while others show this deadly weapon with its ends splayed into three prongs.

A vajra-like weapon also appears in Sumerian cosmology. Its use is recorded in the Bablyonian Epic of Creation, the Enuma Elish. A battle between the sky god Marduk (Bel) and serpent Tiamat is detailed on the fourth tablet of this ancient document.

The evil and powerful Tiamat, according to the Enuma Elish, was devising treacherous plans against Ea and the other reigning gods. The gods were afraid to invoke her evil wrath and search for a solution.

Ea attempts to confront Tiamat, but instead of fighting backs down. Marduk, his son, steps forward and volunteers to fight the enraged serpent, on one condition… If he is successful, he will have dominion over the entire universe.

The gods agree and provide Marduk mighty weapons including a bow, a mace and a net to use in his battle against Tiamat.


Images of this epic scene show Marduk holding a three tipped scepter in his hand. Subsequent images clearly depict this same deadly three-pronged weapon).

[quote_box_center]“They gave him the unrivaled weapon, the destroyer of the enemy [saying]: “Go, cut off the life of Tiâmat. “Let the wind carry her blood into the depth [under the earth].” The gods, his fathers, issued the decree for the god Bel. They set him on the road which leadeth to peace and adoration.” – Enuma Elish[/quote_box_center]

Other Forms Of The Vajra

The Rigveda also offers an alternative description of the vajra. Some texts represent it as a notched metal club with thousands of prongs. We find this form of the vajra in numerous other cultures.

The most well known stories that portray the vajra in its club-like form come from Norse cosmology. They are associated with the sky god Thor.

Thor’s mighty hammer Mjölnir was the most fearsome weapon in Norse mythology. Images of the thunder god Thor traditionally show him carrying his mighty hammer. Some texts describe Mjölnir as a hammer, while others refer to it as an ax or club.

The master builders, the dwarfs, in the depths of the earth, made Mjölnir. The Norse Skáldskaparmál, which can be found in the Snorri’s Edda describes Mjölnir as a hammer which would not fail. As a weapon, it could level mountains.

It goes on to state that if aimed it at anything; it would never miss its target. It informs us that in addition to never missing its target, it would always find its way back to the hand of its owner.

Thor used his mighty hammer to battle his deadliest foe, the giant serpent Jörmungandr. In these tales, the Midgard Serpent, Jörmungandr is not killed. It would not be until near the end of the world in the apocalyptic battle of Ragnarök, that Thor will clash with Jörmungandr the final time.

In Slavic mythology we learn of the evil serpent Veles who ascends from the underworld and steals something of value to the sky god Perun. Perun, using lightning bolts, would vanquish Veles back to his underground realm annually.

His deadly axe, like Thor’s mighty hammer was used to subdue evil and overcome the iniquitous serpent Veles. It too would return to his hand after being thrown.

In Irish mythology, the magical weapon of the hero of Ulster Cúchulainn is the Gae Bolga or lightning spear. Cúchulainn fights and kills his childhood friend and foster brother, Ferdia with this magical weapon.

The Gae Bolga is described as a dart or spear, which separates into multiple barbs when entering the body, causing fatal wounds. It was next to impossible to withdraw once it had impaled the body. The Irish Book of Leinster describes the devastating effects of the Gae Bolga as such:

[quote_box_center]“It entered a man’s body with a single wound, like a javelin, then opened into thirty barbs. Only by cutting away the flesh could it be taken from that man’s body.” – Book of Leinster[/quote_box_center]

In China, the legend of Hua-hu Tiao Devours Yang Chien describes a magical spike carried by Huang T’ien Hua which sounds remarkably similar to Indra’s vajra.


“The Chin-kang, deprived of their magical weapons, began to lose heart. To complete their discomfiture, Huang T’ien Hua brought to the attack a matchless magical weapon. This was a spike 7 1/2 inches long, enclosed in a silk sheath, and called ‘Heart-piercer.’

“It projected so strong a ray of light that eyes were blinded by it. Huang T’ien Hua, hard pressed by Mo-li Ch’ing, drew the mysterious spike from its sheath, and hurled it at his adversary. It entered his neck, and with a deep groan the giant fell dead.” – Myths & Legends of China – E. T. C. Werner


Finding myths, with similar storylines, and their corresponding images in relatively close geographic areas, while interesting, does not fully support the universality of the gods.

When we uncover similar narratives and corresponding imagery, in remote regions of the world, this concept takes on a more serious tone. Myths of a vajra-like weapon are found all over the world.

In Australia, the sky gods, the Wati Kutjara brothers, wield a magical boomerang, Wo-mur-rang or club. Boomerangs are known for their ability, once thrown, to return to their owner. Legend states that their father Kidili attempted to rape some of the first women. Throwing their wo-mur-rang, they castrated their father where he disappeared into a water hole.

Vajra Like Weapons In the New World

In the new world we encounter a similar deadly lightning weapon used by the sky gods. In the Aztec culture there is the god Huitzilopochtli. Huitzilopochtli, with his weapon Xiuhcoatl, “the fire serpent”, killed his sister Coyolxauhqui soon after he was born.

The Mayan rain deity Chaac and the later Aztec Tlaloc are both are depicted carrying their lightning axe. Sometimes they are depicted holding snakes, which represent lightning bolts, which they would hurl from the mountaintops where they made their retreat.

In Peru, we find the god Illapa who is described as a man wielding a club in his left hand and a sling in his right.

A variation of the lightning motif is the concept of the thunderstone. It is believed that thunderstones fall from the sky when the gods are battling each other. This idea is widely held throughout Africa.

The Yoruba of southwestern Nigera, for example, believe their axe carrying storm god Shange creates thunder and lightning and casts “thunderstones” down to earth. The elders of this culture would search wherever lightning struck for these magical stones.

The thunder-producing weapon, the vajra, is only one example of the enormous number of commonalities found in myth, legend, culture and iconography around the world.

Similarities exist throughout Greek, Sumerian, Norse, Aztec and Australian and American cosmology. These parallels include the gods, their lives and their amazing weapons. They also include the laws and customs that govern our lives – the very fabric of society.

The universality of symbolism found around the world implies something else. Weapons, like the vajra, were not born from the imagination of man. They did not come into being as part of a cultures evolution. They were real. They were tangible.

Someone somewhere in our remote past saw it and documented it. It is only through an actual encounter with a marvelous weapon that emitted thunder that a clear and specific portrayal of it could be made.

Likewise, if tools like the vajra are genuine then we are forced to accept that the gods who wielded these weapons were factual individuals as well. This new-found knowledge would open the door to a revolutionary new understanding of who we are.

It would challenge the basis of our society and could cause us to reevaluate not only our place in the universe, but everything we hold to be true.

According to author and researcher Wayne Herschel, the Vajra was not a weapon, but a device capable of opening star-gates to other planets (even though it could have easily been both).


Wayne Herschel’s research is very compelling and the evidence that he gathered is in support of his claims.

[quote_box_center]According to Herschel, “the Trident forks called Vajra create the opening of the cosmic conduit wormhole star gate.”[/quote_box_center]

Wayne is a veteran decoder of ancient star maps and he was able to find significant evidence that the Vajras were being used as portal openers by the ETs that we worshiped as gods in ancient times:

But, in my opinion, Wayne Herschel’s greatest achievement was to locate the actual sun and orbiting home planet of those who interfered with our species for eons:
