金刚手菩萨 Vajrapani -披甲护身 Armour Protection

Terjemahan Indonesia: Vajrapani – Perisai Perlindungan

Shri Vajrapani

This article resulted from walking through the Basic Sadhana of Cultivation devised by My Root Guru, the Living Buddha Lian Sheng, with some fellow students.
Sad to say that most students didn't fully understand the Basic steps preceding the Yidam Yoga practice.

This is one of them that most didn't bother or don't exactly know how to do properly and thus not effective at all.
The results: The students get disturbed easily and with their imagination going wild, they fear everything and blame it on others or blame their gurus for teaching them something that is not effective!


Before you point finger at anyone next time, look inwards for the origin of all wrongs first!



Quoting from Wikipedia – Vajrapani:

Vajrapāṇi (Sanskrit, "Vajra in [his] hand") is one of the earliest-appearing bodhisattvas in Mahayana Buddhism. He is the protector and guide of Gautama Buddhaand rose to symbolize the Buddha's power.

Vajrapani is extensively represented in Buddhist iconography as one of the three protective deities surrounding the Buddha. 
Each of them symbolizes one of the Buddha's virtues: 
Mañjuśrī manifests all the Buddhas' wisdom, 
Avalokiteśvara manifests all the Buddhas' compassion and 
Vajrapani manifests all the Buddhas' power as well as the power of all five tathāgatas.

Vajrapani is one of the earliest Dharmapalas and the only Buddhist deity to be mentioned in the Pāli Canon as well as be worshiped in the Shaolin Monastery, in Tibetan Buddhism and in Pure Land Buddhism (where he is known as Mahasthamaprapta and forms a triad with Amitābha and Avalokiteśvara). 

Manifestations of Vajrapani can also be found in many Buddhist temples in Japan as dharma protectors called Nio
Vajrapani is also associated with Acala, who is venerated as Fudo-Myō in Japan, where he is serenaded as the holder of the vajra.

The Buddhist Vajrapani is distinct from the entity mentioned in the Vedas as Indra, king of the gods and the most widely-mentioned deity in Hindu scriptures.

Quoting from Wikipedia – 金剛手菩薩:



合称 “三族旌尊”,分别代表 “力量、慈悲、智慧” 三种特质。

或说,金刚手菩萨是 毗卢遮那佛 入普贤三昧而生出,梵文Vajrapani,
金刚萨埵 梵名Vajra-sattva,是佛部,与普贤菩萨同体异名,亦称“金刚心菩萨”。


Quoting from 信心坚定 Steadfast Faith?:

X: 法師,我有做披甲護身,我也冇諗其他……但就咁巧合��


X: Fashi, I did Armour Protection, I do not have other thoughts .... but just coincidence (defeated expression).

Now I dedicate to all sentient beings as Fashi taught when cultivating.


Quoting from 净业修法仪轨 :

[10. 披甲护身

[我们点燃了十字金刚杵 - 代表清净、光明、不坏、坚硬、坚定。]



7. Armour Protection

Form the Vajra Mudra before the forehead.  Visualise you draw a beam of brilliant white light from the Universe, it fills and engulf you.

The Vajra Clasp Mudra

Recite the mantra:  OM, BO LEE LAN ZE LEE. (7x)

After recitation, bring the mudra to touch the brow point, then throat, heart, left shoulder, right shoulder, then back to the forehead.Visualise that you are now actually a lighted up Crossed-Dorje.

The Crossed Dorje (Vishva-Vajra)

At the moment of releasing the mudra, visualise you send a beam of brilliant blue light upwards and then draw it down, placing it in front, back, left and right around you. Then visualise these 4 beams of light start to turn in a clockwise direction forming a cylindrical column all around you. Visualise it spins continuously – this means that the Dharma Protectors are protecting you all the time.
As you dismiss the mudra, thank all the Dharma Protectors for protecting you all the time.


Dear all, if you do this right, you have no need to fear anything coming anywhere close to you!


The circle of white light around you keeps spreading outwards with you as the centre.
Then the blue light forms another ring around the white light, "bouncing off" any "ill-intent" intruders too.

This protection can be till you next perform the practice again, if you make a request for protection to last till your next practice. :)

So, the problem lies with you who didn't do the Armour Protection properly as taught by your Root Guru with the proper basics of Mudra; Visualisation; Mantra!

Do not blame anyone or any place for your own discomforts!

Cheers all.
