Amongst the few ritual objects possessed by Aro Yeshé, were the iron handled bell and the iron vajra made for A-Kyong Düd’dül Dorje. A-Kyong Düd’dül Dorje was unusual in being a Lama who was a master in the working of iron with gold inlay. Iron work of this kind was famous in Dér-gé, Kham, Eastern Tibet. A-Kyong Düd’dül Dorje had learnt these skills from his uncle Ngakpa Rangdröl Takshar. The bell and vajra were passed on to Aro Yeshé as the incarnation of ’a-Shul Pema Legden.
Khandro Déchen comments:
The bell and vajra are shown in the thangka portraying Aro Yeshé, not so much to indicate that he was a tantrika – but in order to depict him as being the heir of ’a-Shul Pema Legden. As shown here, the bell and vajra lack the intricate gold inlay of cloud patterns which would have decorated the implements made by A-Kyong Düd’dül Dorje. As with most of the lineal treasures of the Aro Gar – the bell and vajra of ’a-Shul Pema Legden and Aro Yeshé have not yet been found.
