In Tibetan Buddhism,
Vajrakilaya is a furious deity who is frequently connected to the dismantling
of barriers and the defeat of evil forces. Vajrakilaya's furious side
symbolises the deity's vengeful and powerful character in conquering both
internal and external barriers on the way to enlightenment.
With a phurba (ritual
dagger) in one hand and a vajra (thunderbolt) in the other, Vajrakilaya is a
ferocious and energetic figure. His angry face, painted in flames, represents
the cleansing of impurities and the quick, transformational effect of his work.
The practice of
Vajrakilaya is often employed to remove obstacles, pacify negative forces, and
purify one's own mind. Devotees may engage in rituals, visualizations, and
recitations associated with Vajrakilaya as a means of invoking his powerful and
transformative energy in their spiritual endeavors.
