The Dance of the Vajra is a result of the profound meditation of the Dzogchen master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. In the Dzogchen teaching the Vajra is a symbol of our essential nature, which is pure, clear and immutable like a diamond. Practicing the Dance of the Vajra one can discover this real nature by being in the state of contemplation; and one can learn to maintain and stabilize this knowledge not only in sitting meditation but also being in movement. In this way it can become part of our daily life.
The “Dance of the Song of the Vajra” is a complex, symbolic dance connected particularly to the energetic aspect of our existence. Through their sound, all the syllables of the Song of the Vajra are linked to specific energy points within our inner mandala, our body, and our outer mandala, the external dimension of the world. Through sound, color and movement we can coordinate these energy points and create a harmonizing communication on the level of subtle energy
