      (mass of rocks) rolling down the hill,but just as it was about to hit Buddha, Vajrapani appeared and split the boulder
      into pieces.So that it could fall harmlessly near Buddha.

# Another Story is that a Brahman called Ambattha was abusing Buddha with many vile(unworthy) and impure words.He saw
      Vajrapani appeared in the sky with his wrathful aspect.Terrified with Vajrapani, Brahman Ambattha confessed his
      evil deeds in front of Shakyamuni Buddha.
