Buddha Vajrapani is the embodiment of the power and skill of all enlightened beings. Although his nature is love, his aspect is fierce to emphasize his ability to empower us to abandon our delusions and negativity. He can help us pacify all obstacles through the force of spontaneous great bliss.
As Venerable Geshe Kelsang says, the function of Vajrapani “is to destroy living beings’ enemy of delusions by bestowing special power upon their body and mind.”
The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we connect to Buddha Vajrapani’s enlightened mind. By receiving these inspiring blessings, we can swiftly actualize our own potential for a fearless heart and gain the confidence we need to progress successfully along the spiritual path. Through the power of our courageous compassion, we can help to bring enormous relief to our suffering world.
