Vajrapani is the embodiment of the Buddhas infinite power and is always represented in wrathful form. Vajrapani with the Vajra symbol is the spiritual son of the Dhyani Buddha Akshobhya who is the progenitor of the Vajra family. His spiritual mother is Mamaki. Vajrapani is also known as god of rain. It is said that when the Nagas (serpent) appeared before Buddha to listen to his teaching, Vajrapani was charged by Tathagata to guard them from the attacks of their mortal enemies, the Garudas. To deceive and combat the Garudas, Vajrapani assumed a form with head, wings and claws like the Garuda themselves. Hence, Vajrapani as the protector of Nagas is looked upon as the Rain God. So, Northern Buddhists appeal when rain is needed or is too abundant. One can also find Vajrapani in Garuda form among the various forms of Vajrapani. Vajrapani when represented either stands or sits and usually carries a lotus on which is placed the family symbol Vajra. Sometimes, he holds the Vajra against the chest in one of his hands.
