Which would be more formal when addressing a male master?
先生, 師父, or お師匠様 ?

and 4.)(for those familiar with Buddhist deities)
What's a vajra and its purpose? ( I think a vajra is also known as 金剛 . )

Vajra is a Sankrit word which means "lightning" or "thunderbolt". I think that the god Indra wields it or something.

Vajrayana is one of the primary branches of Buddhism.
