Vajrapani Drawing Course
Vajrapani or ‘the Great Black One’ is a Hindu and Buddhist wrathful figure with the devastating appearance of Shiva. He is a Yi-dam, the guardian deity, and Dharmapala, or protector of the Dharma or Buddhist Law. Vajrapani has many different manifestations. The six-armed form of Vajrapani, believed to be a ferocious and influential form of Avalokiteśvara, is preferential in Tibetan Buddhism. In this manifestation, he is midnight blue in colour, and has three eyes. Each eye represents his wisdom of the past, present and future, and the three bodies of the Buddha. The crown of five skulls is representative of conversion of the five poisons: ignorance, jealousy, anger, desire, and pride, into the five insights.
