Introduction to Khatvanga Axe

The khatvanga, also spelled "khadga" or "khadgaṅka," is a ritual tool used in Tibetan Buddhism and other Vajrayana traditions. It is commonly referred to as a symbolic or ritual axe. The khatvanga is typically made of a long shaft with three severed heads arranged in a triangular pattern at the top. In Buddhism, each head represents the overcoming of the ego as well as the three poisons. The khatvanga is associated with several deities, including Chakrasamvara and Vajrayogini. Practitioners incorporate it into ceremonies and rituals as a spiritual tool for cutting through ignorance and attachment, promoting enlightenment and the realization of emptiness.
