Vajrapani is power personified and protector of Buddha's tantric teachings. He fought and conquered Nagpo Tsalak, earning the title "Conqueror of the Four Quarters." He swore loyalty to the thousand buddhas of this eon. He has many pure lands, accessible to those who find the paths. Tibetan calls this realm Chang Lo Chen; Sanskrit calls it Adákavati.
His dark blue hue indicates that he never ceases to be absorbed in the blissful Truth Body or Dharmakaya. Although he appears as a wrathful deity, in fact his wrath is merely to protect the dharma from those who would destroy it. The vajra he holds in his right hand represents the knowledge that is the essence of the teachings of the Buddha. He is often depicted in a triad with Avalokiteshvara and Manjushri known as Rigsum Gonpo, symbolizing the qualities necessary for enlightenment – compassion, wisdom and power.
