Three-inch gilded Manjushri in the Tibetan style. His left hand forms the teaching mudra. He is always depicted with a sword raised over his head; a sword of liberation that cuts through ignorance. Long before Jedi masters, Manjushri was wielding his fiery sword of liberation cutting through ignorance. He is among the most beloved Buddhas in Tibet.
If you want to make a stronger connection to this buddha of wisdom and knowledge may we suggest a statue such as the one to the left, or a thangka. 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.
