Wrathful Vajrapani Statue Symbolism
In his right hand our Vajrapani statue wields the battle symbol of ancient India known as the vajra. The “vajra” is a Sanskrit word that has the dual meaning of diamond and also thunderbolt. It symbolizes the power of virtue to eliminate all negativity and remove all obstacles from the spiritual realization of devotees. Furthermore, the vajra is the symbol for the masculine attribute of skillful means. Our statue depicts the flames of pristine awareness that burn around Vajrapani.
Furthermore, wrathful Vajrapani wears the crown adorned with five skulls. These skulls carry the dual representation of the five aggregates and also the five poisons. The five poisons are anger, greed, delusion, pride and jealousy. However, the 5 poisons have been converted to the nectars of transcendent wisdom. Additionally, the five aggregates are material form, feeling, perception, mind formations and consciousness which have been pacified and subdued. This is represented by their depiction in skull like form on the crown of wrathful Vajrapani. Furthermore, Vajrapani is depicted with the 3 eyes which represent knowledge of the past, present and future. Click here to read more about Vajrapani.
