Vajradhara is the founder of Vajrayana Buddhism, or Tantra. He is the same mental continuum as Buddha Shakyamuni but displays a different aspect.
He appeared as Buddha Shakyamuni to reveal the stages of the path of Sutra, and as Conqueror Vajradhara to reveal the stages of the path of Tantra.
Vajradhara said that in degenerate times he would appear in an ordinary form as a Spiritual Guide.
For more information, see the book Mahamudra Tantra.
