There is a theory according to which once upon a time there was a people with a high level of cultural development. Neighbors considered them “gods.” The civilization of the “gods” perished, leaving behind only legends and cyclopean structures in various corners of the Earth. It’s believed that vajra is one of the few fragments of that civilization that has reached of our days.
In Indian mythology, vajra was considered the worst weapon in arsenal of the gods. With its help, the king of the gods Indra destroyed the fortresses, crushed rocks into powder, turned back rivers, destroyed whole armies.

Subsequently, the vajra became a cult object, a ritual belonging in Tibetan Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. Her they began to manufacture as an amulet, production was put on stream, manufactured from miniature to almost gigantic. Of course not one the vajra made by artisans did not have destructive power.
