This beautiful statue made in Nepal, seems to stand even taller than he actually is. With ornate detailing, this statue will undoubtedly demand a prominent position in your home. Manjushri is the Bodhisattva of Wisdom and always appears with a youthful face. He is among the most beloved Buddhas in Tibet. Only Guru Rinpoche and Chenrezig stand above him in popularity.
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: Om Ah Ra Pa Tsa Na Dhih. Do this once around your 108-bead mala and see if he doesn’t assist you in those attributes mentioned above.
