The phurba is a triple side Tibetan ritual tool. Each side represents one of the spirit world. The three blades of the phurba symbolizes the overcoming or cutting through of the three root poisons: ignorance, desire, and hatred. The three faces are expressions of the three basic emotions; joy, disgust and equanimity (neutrality) and the hat is the way the conscience escapes to reach the spiritual world. It can be used to clear a space of its negative energy and consecrate it.
The Garuda is a mythical bird with human arms that is hatched from space, ready to fly, which represents the noble quality of outrageousness. Through meditation and spiritual warriorship training, attachment is cut, and we're able to develop a fresh mind that continually cuts through concept. "This mind accommodates everything with the confidence of equanimity, an unbiased view that comes from having contemplated the landscape of life: the reality of impermanence and suffering. Taking that bird’s-eye (Garuda) view into our day, we are freed from conventional mind—a fixation on hope that life will meet our expectations, and fear that it will not. Unencumbered by the need to manipulate reality, we can use whatever happens to radiate compassion without bias. With this open mind we magnetize whatever we may need for spiritual and worldly success."
