Vajrapani

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.
