Vajravidarana (Skt. Vajravidāraṇa; Tib. རྡོ་རྗེ་རྣམ་པར་འཇོམས་པ་, Wyl. rdo rje rnam par 'joms pa) or Vajra Subduer is a semi-wrathful form of Vajrapani and the deity’s dharani, counted as a Kriya Tantra, is known for its healing and purifying effect. The dharani has inspired a large number of ritual liturgies and commentaries, both Indic and Tibetan, and is commonly recited by Tibetan and Newar Buddhists. In Tibetan it is preserved mainly in two forms, one in the Kangyur and the Nyingma version.
