Why is wrathful Buddha Vajrakilaya, described by Garchen Rinpoche as “the mind of great love?” Can such a ferocious embodiment of Enlightenment really calm the mind and tame our obstacles, both external and internal? Why is Vajrakilaya — also called Vajrakumara — considered the activity of all the Buddhas?
Come along with us now as we get to know this wrathful emanation of Vajrasattva, the embodiment of the activity of all the Buddhas. After our brief introduction, listen or chant along with the Sanskrit version of his mantra — famous for accomplishing the Enlightened activities and overcoming all of our obstacles. (Subtitled in multiple languages.) An informative 10-minute documentary video followed by a chant-along with Hrishikesh Sonar chanting this lovely mantra in Sanskrit.
