Vajrapani is a famous celestial Bodhisattva; he represents the concentrated power of all Buddhas. He is a complex deity with various forms. He is most frequently encountered in his fierce emanation, in which he is a powerful protector and remover of obstacles.
It is also said that Vajrapani will become the last Buddha to appear in this world cycle. Vajrapaniis often grouped with the Bodhisattvas Avalokiteshvara and Manjushri. The three celestial Bodhisattvas are thought of as archangelic protectors, representing the power (Vajrapanai), compassion (Avalokiteshvara) and wisdom (Manjushri).
He fights a spiritual battle against the forces of ignorance, craving and samsara. He is a blue Tantric figure that is surrounded mostly by a flamed halo, and wears a garland of skulls and a wreath of snakes.
