Vajrapani, also known as Guhyapati in Tibetan, represents the strength element of perfect enlightenment. He is the 'Lord of Secrets,' the guardian of all the tantras of Vajrayana Buddhism. Like Manjushri and Avalokiteshvara, he is a bodhisattva who lives on the 10th bodhisattva level. In reality, all three were fully enlightened eons ago and appeared as bodhisattvas for the sake of instructing others.
