Kila (Sanskrit) or Phurpa (Tibetan) is a three-sided peg, dagger, or nail like ritual implement that is
used during Vajrakilaya practices and Puja. It is normally made from brass and iron. The head
(Pommel) of the Phurpa has the faces of Vajrakilaya; the handle is a Vajra and the blade is formed
from three triangular facets that taper to a point at the end. The blades represent the ability of the
implement to transform the three poisons which create the three worlds into transcendental wisdoms
of the Buddha. This is possible because the deity Vajrakilaya is closely embodied into the Phurpa
after consecration and will swiftly destroy all our poisons like anger, hatred, violence and aggression
by binding them at the blade and destroying them by the tip. The head of the Phurpa can be used for
imparting blessings.

As the Phurpa is consecrated and bound, it
represents the Nirmanakaya manifestation of
Vajrakilaya. We can plunge the kila into the earth to
invoke its effectiveness, or wrap it with a blue cloth or
khatag for those not initiated. We can place it
standing in a bowl or basket filled with rice grain by
piercing the rice vertically down with the pointed end.
For those who have been initiated or empowered, the
Phurpa can be used effectively during practices and
ceremonial prayers by stabilizing the ground. The
Phurpa through the power of the lama visualization
can purify and cure diseases, exorcise spirit within
and destroy maras, enhance meditation and perform
consecration during Puja and even control weather
In summary the general functions of the Phurpa are
1) Bestow blessings
2) Purify and Pacify
3) Destroy those who harm Dharma
4) Protect the Buddhadharma
Finally, for those who travel to afar regularly, open
new frontier in places where the Buddhadharma is
non-existent or visiting new places, it is very beneficial to be blessed by Kilaya and in possession of a
Phurpa for all round protection.
