Vajrapani is an important bodhisattva who embodies the spiritual power of all the Buddhas. His name means "wielder of the thunderbolt" and he protects those who walk the Mahayana path, removing all inner, outer and secret obstacles from their practice.Enlightened aeons ago, Vajrapani is said to have incarnated as one of Buddha Shakyamuni's primary disciples. He is often depicted along with fellow disciples Manjushri (the embodiment of the Buddhas' wisdom) and Avalokiteshvara (the embodiment of the Buddhas' compassion). Together these three bodhisattvas comprise the three factors of Buddha-nature and the three necessary ingredients for enlightenment.
Vajrapani symbolizes fierce determination and unbending intent in the unrelenting battle against negativity. Vajrapani is depicted in the warrior's pose, with one leg bent and the other outstretched. In his right hand, held aloft, he brandishes a vajra, representing his diamond-like motivation and impetus to accomplishment.His left hand holds a lasso, with which he binds the demons of delusion. He has three eyes, symbolizing his knowledge of past, present, and future. He wears a crown adorned with five human skulls, representing his transformation of the five poisons into the five transcendent wisdoms, as well as his purification of the five aggregates. Around his neck is a garland of serpents, a reminder of his aspect as protector of the nagas. He is clothed in a tiger-skin, and is surrounded by the blazing fire of exalted wisdom which consumes all neurotic states. Vajrapani doesnt, to many newcomers to Buddhism, look very Buddhist at all. He is a Bodhisattva who represents the energy of the enlightened mind, and his mantra also symbolizes that quality. Vajrapani is pictured dancing wildly within a halo of flames, which represent transformation. He holds a vajra (thunderbolt) in his right hand, which emphasizes the power to cut through the darkness of delusion.
Vajrapani looks wrathful, but as a representation of the enlightened mind, hes completely free from hatred. Vajrapanis mantra is simply his name, which means wielder of the thunderbolt, framed between the mystical syllables Om and Hm. This mantra helps us to gain access to the irrepressible energy that Vajrapani symbolizes. A familiarity with Vajrapani does, of course, help here, although the sound of the mantra is itself rather energetic.
