    A Vajra is a symbolic object used in Hindu and Buddhist "prayers."

    The literal translation (from Sanskrit) is either thunderbolt or diamond.
    The thunderbolt cuts through ignorance. The diamond destroys but is itself indestructible.
    Like the flaming sword that slices through delusion and suffering (Manjushri).

    A Vajra is a very powerful symbol in Buddhism. As with all such things, there are many interrelated and layered meanings associated with it.

    Your tattoos and inability to suffer fools well suggest that the symbol might capture some part of your personality. But mostly I liked the wordplay of "Tiny" ('cause your big) and "Vajra" ('cause you're direct and potentially blinding) with "big poppa" in the middle ('cause you're kinda gangster).


    Now you've had some Dharma and suffered through my foolish thought process.
    No charge.
