The huge and gray lumbering form of Vajrapani displays his lolling red tongue, visible inside his open mouth. His elongated ear lobes are adorned with equally prodigious earrings, and in his crown can be seen a vajra, entwined around which is a snake. His ferocious eyes have small flames for eyebrows and even his beard is made up of small hook-like flames.

Vajrapani is believed to be the ferocious emanation of Akshobhya, the transcendental Buddha. Akshobhya can be seen at the top center of the painting.

It is recalled that when the Nagas (serpent gods) appeared before the Buddha to listen to his teachings, Buddha asked Vajrapani to guard them from the attacks of their mortal enemies, the garudas. In order to deceive the garudas, Vajrapani assumed a form with the head and claws like the garudas themselves.

Vajrapani is believed to be the savior of snakes (nagas), and since the Nagas are believed to control the rain-clouds, Vajrapani as their protector is looked upon as the Rain God, and it is to him Buddhists appeal when rain is needed, or is too abundant. In this capacity Vajrapani is identified with Indra, the Indian god of Rain.

All thangkas come framed in traditional silk brocade, and complete with hanging rods and silken veil.

Each of our thangkas comes framed in silk brocade and veil, ready to be hung in your altar.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
