Myth

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

Vajrapāni is extensively represented in Buddhist iconography as one of the earliest three protective deities or bodhisattvas surrounding the Buddha. Each of them symbolizes one of the Buddha’s virtues: Manjushri manifests all the Buddhas’ wisdom, Avalokiteśvara manifests all the Buddhas’ immense compassion, and Vajrapāni protects Buddha and manifests all the Buddhas’ power as well as the power of all five tathāgatas (Buddhahood of the rank of Buddha).[3][4]

Vajrapāni is one of the earliest Dharmapalas of Mahayana Buddhism and also appears as a deity in the Pali Canon of the Theravada school. He is 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 Vajrapāni can also be found in many Buddhist temples in Japan as Dharma protectors called Nio. Vajrapāni is also associated with Acala, who is venerated as Fudō-Myōō in Japan, where he is serenaded as the holder of the vajra.[5]

Appearance

He was a bald man that had a height of three meters, a muscular body, and golden skin (Song ONE gold dyed) that can easily defend against any number of 'Heavenly Tribulation Hydrogen Bombs'.[6]

He has a whole body like a cast muscular Vajrapani monk statue, muscles of his whole body are exceptionally exaggerating. When looking at him, Song Shuhang has an misconception, as if All Heavens and Myriad Realms of 'muscle’ radiated from this monk's body.[7]

His body is noted to be the 佛门不灭身 (Fómén Bù Miè Shēn) Unextinguished Buddha Body that is top ranked among Eternal Life Beings.[8]

Personality

The Great Master has a habit of sitting or meditating on the open hand of a great golden muscular Vajrapani statue similar to his appearance. He sometimes greets others with Buddhist scriptures or greeting.[9][2] He has a warm smile.

He views the Alliance's group name as too foolish and wishes to change it. He also holds a severe grudge against the Eighth Heavenly Way and wishes to destroy its plans of complete resurrection.[9]

Until the rise of Tyrant Exterminate, the Great Master rarely shown his Eternal Life Being's Moon Wheel Halo out of secrecy, vengence and despair.[2]

Before the Eighth Heavenly Way

The Vajrapāni Temple Great Master has been an Eternal Life Being existing since before the era of the Holy Man. Rare among Eternal Life Beings, the Vajrapāni Temple Great Master had no interest in Vying for the Heavenly Way.

The Great Master founded the Vajrapani Temple and it thrived as a school of body tempering arts, fist arts and cultivating Strength of Karmic Virtue before the ascension of the Eighth Heavenly Way.

Song ONE Imitation

Battle of Clear Water Pavilion

With his permission, Song ONE impersonated a golden skin (dyed) version the Vajrapāni Temple Great Master to thwart the invading Ancient Heavenly Court survivors in the Battle. However, because of Song ONE's personality and subordinate Eternal Life Beings like the Northern Great Emperor, the imitation was easily exposed.[6][10]

It is later revealed Song ONE borrowed the Great Master's physical body to exhibit less than 100% his abilities. He also dyed it gold, the same paint applied to White Dragon long ago. Until luckly encountering on January 1, 2020 Seventh to Eighth Stage transcending Song Shuhang's low divided body, Song ONE intended to borrow the Great Master's Unextinguished Buddha Body to fight with his 5 member Eternal Life Being group against the Son of Heaven.[8]

Beast Realm

During a brawling fight between muscular Blue Wave and another muscular body tempering Spirit Venerable, Chu reminisced about Song ONE's imitation of the Vajrapāni Temple Great Master.[11]

White Bone

After the years long fight between White Bone and Kun King, Chu projects her meeting with Song ONE during the Battle to White Bone as evidence of his continued existence.[12]

He has a desire to teach Shuhang successor techniques from the Vajrapani Temple and guide him to Buddhism by attracting Shuhang with Ruism magecraft.[13] It is due to noticing Shuhang's talent in body tempering arts, fist techniques and abnormally strong Karmic Virtue, main aspects of the Vajrapani Temple's Legacy.
