In the Dzogchen teachings the word Vajra means our true nature, the true status of all phenomena. The dance of Vajra is an important method that uses the sound and the movement to integrate the three aspects of our existence - body, energy and mind - into that knowledge. It is a very special and effective practice to restore the natural condition of our energy and harmonize our whole being.
In the Dance of the Six Spaces of Samantabhadra twelve practitioners, six females
and six males, dance together on a large Mandala of five colors which represents the
correspondence between the internal dimension of the individual and the outer dimension
of the world. They are accompanied by music and the chanted melody of the Mantra of
the Six Spaces of Samantabhadra (the primordial Buddha, symbol of our real nature).
In 2011 the Dance of Vajra has been recognized by UNESCO as humanity world heritage.
