This is an exquisite representation of the Manjushri Buddha (Wen-shu Pu-sa), which means Gentle Glory or Sweet Splendor, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom, who is one of the most important deities in the Buddhist pantheon.
The deity, adorned with colorful jewels, is depicted seated on a beautiful golden lotus ‘Pitha’. In Buddhism, Manjushri is the Bodhisattva (Buddha-to-be) of Wisdom – the embodiment of the omniscient wisdom of all enlightened beings. His left hand is in the gesture of teaching Dharma and shown holding the stem of a lotus flower that supports the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra. With the flaming sword or ‘Khadaga’ in his right hand, Manjushri is conceived as vanquishing ignorance and eliminating darkness with the power of knowledge and wisdom. He bestows wisdom, intelligence, and the power of eloquence, linguistics, and memory. Revered as the patron of arts and sciences, he is traditionally invoked by writers.
Manjushri is the bodhisattva associated with the development of enlightened wisdom, doctrine, and awareness. Buddhists have identified Manjushri as the oldest and most significant mythic bodhisattva in the Mahayana tradition. Those who have a negative mindset, stressed, depressed, suicidal, quarrelsome, and troublesome can benefit from the Manjushri. He provides great power in clearing obstacles and inviting wealth from endless resources for those going through difficulty and in great problems.
