Introduction to our Wrathful Vajrapani Statue

The existence of Vajrapani as a Dharma protector (Dharmapala) is referenced in the Pali Canon. Indeed, our wrathful Vajrapani statue represents the most venerable of the Buddhist protector deities. As a result, Vajrapani is the only Dharmapala that is recognized in both Mahayana and also Theravada Buddhism. Furthermore, the Golden Light Sutra gives him the title of the “Great General of the Yakshas”. Additionally, he is the protector of the nagas (serpents).

The Weapons of Wrathful Vajrapani

The name Vajrapani is a Sanskrit word that translates as “thunderbolt in the hand”. Therefore, our Vajrapani statue depicts him in his classic warrior pose wielding a vajra over his right shoulder. The vajra is an ancient symbol that originated in India. It was a carried into battle by the ancient generals but in Buddhism it symbolizes the male aspect of compassion and skillful means. Additionally, in his left hand he holds the lasso which is used to strangle the demons of delusion. Generally speaking, the wrathful appearance of Vajrapani is meant to crush obstacles to spiritual realization. 

Additional features of our Vajrapani statue include the burning flames of pristine awareness which surround him and incinerate all neurotic mental states. Furthermore, he wears the skull crown that is adorned with the five skulls symbolizing the five poisons. The five insidious poisons in Buddhism are greed, hatred, ignorance, jealousy and pride. These five poisons have been converted into the five transcendent wisdoms. Furthermore, wrathful Vajrapani has three eyes which represent his knowledge of the past, present and future.
