Details on Vajrapani, the Lord of Secrets
by Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye
This deity in essence is the strength and
might of every buddha, gathered into one.
In form he holds the treasury of the most secret and profound of all
By means of names and forms in untold numbers
Such as lords of the ten bhumis — Dharmevajra, Vajra Garbha, Vajrapani
and so forth.
Attending every conqueror and bodhisattva, and each of their successors,
always and whoever they may be,
Superior to any other is his might of miracles to vanquish Mara, the
obstructers, and the agents of distortion.
