The Vajrakilaya Mantra Banner
Vajrakilaya (Dorje Phurpa), also known as Vajrakumara (Dorje Zhonu, Youthful Vajra), is a wrathful Heruka god who represents all the Buddhas’ enlightened action. Vajrakilaya is one of the Nyingma tantras’ eight Heruka deities. Guru Padmasambhava’s personal meditational deity is Vajrakilaya. When several hurdles appeared in his path, he engaged in meditation on Vajrakilaya.
Who is Vajrakilaya?
Vajrakilaya is the Buddha Vajrasattva’s wrathful form. He is distinguished by the fact that he wields the phurba dagger (see Kla (Buddhism)). Indeed, the word “Vajrakilaya” designated both the kila, and its ritual use, and the deity. Vajrakilaya is commonly represented with three faces of different colors in a crown of skulls.
