Vajrapani is a bodhisattva that represents the energy of the awakened mind and its mantra also symbolizes this quality.
Vajrapani is a very popular figure of Tantric Buddhism He is depicted dancing wildly in the center of a halo of flames, which represent transformation. He holds in his right hand a vajra (lightning or diamond lightning) that shows with what force he slices in the darkness of illusion. Vajrapani looks angry but, as a representation of the awakened mind, he is completely devoid of hatred.
Vajrapani is a deva in Hinduism but also a boddhisattva for Buddhists. "He appears as early as the 2nd century in Mahāyāna iconography as endowed with great strength and as protector of the Buddha. In Greco-Buddhist art he resembles Heracles, holding in his hand a short club in the shape of a vajra. He is identified with the "powerful elephant"" protector who is said to have watched over Shākyamuni at birth. Similarly, it is claimed that it was he who protected the Buddha from a landslide during his preaching at the Vulture Peak. »
