Vajrapāṇi 金剛手菩薩 (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. In Tibetan Buddhism and in Pure Land Buddhism, he is known as Mahasthamaprapta (大勢至菩薩) and forms a triad with Amitābha and Avalokiteśvara.
If you had the opportunity to go to dinner with any 3 people who have ever existed, who would you pick? My choices would probably be Gautama Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammed.
