The Vajrapani, known as Chagna Dorje in Tibetan, represents the power of the Buddha and the energy of the enlightened mind. He is one of the triad of Bodhisattva protectors (Sk: Trikulanatha, Tibetan: rigsum gonpo) consisting of Manjushri, Chenrezig, and Vajrapani. Vajrapani protects the practitioner from harm and removes the obstacles in their path with the thunderbolt held in his right hand. He is depicted in wrathful form and he is alternatively known as the Lord of Secrets and the Demon Subduer. The Vajrapani practice helps us to focus our life energy towards the goal of attaining enlightenment.
