The Dance of the Three Vajra's is a symbolic dance for 6 male and 6 female dancers. An advanced yoga, this dance embodies integration and purification, through realizing the non-duality of the ordinary mind and the nature of the mind. In this dance the three essential aspects of our existence – body, energy, and mind – and their pure states, symbolized by the three syllables OM, A, and HUM, are ideally realized in the state of non-dual contemplation.
