Hand-Painted Vajrapani Thangka

This powerful image was created by Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche’s personal thangka painter at his request. The highly delicate work is hand-painted using very fine layering techniques to achieve subtle details and richness rarely seen.
Vajrapani is known throughout Buddhist literature as the Lord of the Yakṣa who protects the Buddhist teachings. Throughout the tantras, he is regarded as inseparable from the primordial Buddha, Samantabhadra. Along with Mañjuśri and Avalokiteśvara who are manifestations of the Buddhas’ mind and heart respectively, he is the manifestation of the Buddhas’ speech. Meditating on Vajrapani, among other things, is known for cleaning away physical ailments and mental impurities such as laziness and dullness.
