This is a golden pocket-sized carry-along Tibetan charm ideal for your wallet or purse. It features the image of Manjushri (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.
Manjusri is the bodhisattva associated with the development of enlightened wisdom, doctrine, and awareness. Buddhists have identified Manjusri as “the oldest and most significant mythic bodhisattva in the Mahayana tradition. The Lotus Sutra assigns him a paradise called Vimala, which according to the Avatamsaka Sutra is located in the east. Those who have a negative mindset, stressed, depressed, suicidal, quarrelsome, and troublesome can benefit from the Manjusri. He provides great power in clearing obstacles and inviting wealth from endless resources when these zodiacs are going through difficulty and in great problems.
Manjusri is depicted as a male bodhisattva wielding a flaming sword in his right hand, representing the realization of transcendent wisdom which cuts down ignorance and duality. The scripture supported by the lotus held in his left hand is a Prajnaparamita sutra, representing his attainment of ultimate realization from the blossoming of wisdom.
The deity is depicted seated on a beautiful 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.
Carry this Tibetan God of Wisdom Manjushri Talisman with you everywhere and be blessed with the wisdom and foresight to overcome any obstacles in your life.
