The name Vajradhara means "holder of the vajra [thunderbolt]," implying that Vajradhara is the holder or protector of Tantrism.

Vajradhara holds the vajra in his right hand and the bell in his left. His hands are crossed at the wrists, a gesture symbolizing highest energy and the union of compassion and wisdom necessary to reach enlightenment.

This image perfectly exemplifies the mystical nature of Vajradhara. The tall, graceful body with its fittingly introspective demeanor seems transmuted beyond the mundane. The tall, slender proportions of the torso give the work an ethereal appearance. His lithe and powerful form has a graceful sway.
