Trivia Edit

  • The term kongō (金剛, lit. gold strength) is the Japanese word for the vajra or vajura, an Indian ritual weapon associated with Buddhism. Vajra in Sanskrit literally means either diamond or thunderbolt as the weapon is said to represent the destructive power of lightning and the unbreakable quality of diamond, hence the alternative translation of kongō as "adamantine".
  • A vajra sword or kongō-ken consists of a straight double-edged sword blade with a vajra handle. It is commonly depicted as being held by Buddhist deities such as Acala.
