Vajrapani is a Bodhisattva who represents the Power of all the Buddhas. He is the tantric aspect of the enlightened mind, transforming the energy of negative emotion into active wisdom and magical perfection. He symbolizes the indestructible Vajra-mind of all Buddhas, their power to defeat. He is the 'Lord of Secrets' (Tib: Sangwe Dagpo) - the keeper of all the Tantras of Vajrayana Buddhism.
His body is dark blue in colour with a serpent garland around his neck, adorned with golden bracelets, silk scarves and ornaments of jewels and bone, and wears a lower garment made up of tiger's skin. He stands in the midst of a raging fire. His right hand holds a sky-iron Vajra, with which he conquers the planetary influences; and his left hand showing the subjugation mudra at heart level. His expression is wrathful with three eyes and a rolling tongue. Trampling upon the corpse of ego, his left leg is extended and his right leg slightly bent.
