Vajrapani (Tibetan: chag na dor je. English: the Vajra Holder) is the wrathful-appearing Bodhisattva, representing the power of all Buddhas, who protects the Dharma and practitioners in various ways in his different forms. As caretaker and guardian of all the Tantras, he is special for removing the various types of obstacles that can arise during intensive practice as well as simply removing obstructions on the path of a practitioner.  This particular form, the Vajrapani Bhutadamara, is the “one who Subdues Demons.”  He stops discordant conditions and obstacles,  and the harms of all kinds of spirits and demons from above,  below, and in the middle.
