Vajradhara Karura is an enemy in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-. It often appears along the Vajradhara Kumbhira.

This giant beast is tough a foe to defeat. Its backhand slap can kill the player in one hit. The player can have a Raise status before fighting it and cast Regen and Wall on Zack at the start of the battle. The player should run in a wide, clockwise circle (it has to be clockwise to avoid the Karura's left hand attack) while casting Graviga. When its HP is low enough (around 5,000 points), the player can finish it off with back-attacks.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Vajradhara is the ultimate primordial Buddha, or Adi Buddha, according to the Gelug and Kagyu schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Achieving the 'state of Vajradhara' is synonymous with complete realisation.

Karura (迦楼羅, karura?) is the Japanese spelling for Garuda. Garuda is a large, birdlike creature that appears in both Hinduism and Buddhism. It serves as Lord Vishnu's mount and is the Hindu name for the constellation Aquila. Contemporary representations of Garuda are the brahminy kite and phoenix.
