Vajrapani with Conch Shells – Faith Stone
Vajrapani, holder of the thunderbolt represents the energy of the enlightened mind and energy that breaks through illusion. He holds a Vajra, a diamond thunderbolt, to cut through obscurations and a hook to catch aspirants who lose their way or fall into darkness. Vajrapani is shown dancing wildly within a halo of flames, which represent transformation. He cuts through the darkness of delusion.
