Vajrapani (Tib. Chakna Dorje) is the Buddha of Power - he is the "Lord of Esoteric Teachings" and said to be the main recipient of the Buddha's vajrayana teachings. Vajrapani's powers are related to the subjugating of demonic forces, the suppression of negativity and in particular the disturbances that can come from subterranean spirits such as nagas. Those suffering from demonic oppression and skin and blood diseases are often advised to connect to Vajrapani's blessings. The form of Vajrapani here is Mahachakra (Tib. Khorlo Chenpo, "Great Wheel").
