Padma-kundali 莲花军荼利明王 'Kundali of the Lotus', also called the Vajra of Subduing. In the Lotus Section of the Garbhakosa Dhatu Mandala, he waits by the right side of Aryavalokitesvara. He is a Guardian Deity in charge of differentiating matters. His body is green, wearing

celestial robes. He holds a lotus bud in the left hand and forms a fist resting on his thigh with the right, showing fierceness. This represents the ability to subdue obstacles preventing sentient beings from realizing their inherent Buddha nature.

His Garbhakosa mantra is: Namah samanta buddhanam dhi sri ham bram svaha
