Lovely shiny brass statue of Manjushri, 8.5 inches tall.
Buddhists appeal to Manjushri for intelligence, wisdom, mastery of the teaching, the power of eloquence and memory. He is always depicted with a sword raised over his head; a sword of liberation that cuts through ignorance. His other hand forms the teaching mudra. He is the great teacher of the Buddhas of past ages and of the future Buddha Maitreya. He is the spiritual friend of Bodhisattvas. So, all you aspiring Bodhisattvas out there, you would do well to give Manjushri’s Mantra.
First may we suggest a thangka or a statue of Manjushri. Meditate on him while you give his mantra:
Om Ah Ra Pa Tsa Na Dhih
Ask for that sword to cut you free. Something good may happen.
