About The God

Manjushri is the Bodhisattva of keen awareness in Buddhism. A disciple of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni, he represents wisdom, intelligence, realization and is one of the most popular Bodhisattvas following Avalokitesvara. Since wisdom is a greatly honoured quality in Buddhism, Manjushri's position in the pantheon is among the highest.

A male Bodhisattva, Manjusri is depicted brandishing the sword of wisdom and light in his right hand, representing his realization of wisdom which cuts through ignorance and wrong views. The scripture held in his left on the lotus is the Prajnaparamita, representing his attainment of ultimate realization and enlightenment. Variations upon his traditional form as Manjusri include Guhya-Manjusri, Guhya-Manjuvajra, and Manjuswari, most of which are Tantric forms associated with Tibetan Buddhism. His left hand is in the teaching gesture. He is typically seated on a single or double lotus throne.
