Manjusri (Wénshu or Wénshushili Púsà) is
a bodhisattva in the Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions of Buddhism.
The name "Manjushri" means "gentle glory". Manjusri is the bodhisattva
associated with 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. Manjusri is frequently
depicted in Chinese traditions as riding on the back of a lion.
Those who have negative mindset, stressed, depressed, suicidal,
quarrelsome and troublesome can benefit from the Manjusri. Bodhisattva
Manjusri is also the guardian deity of zodiac rabbit. Those who
are born in the years of the rabbit can invite him home as the
guardian angel. He provides great power in clearing obstacles
and inviting wealth from endless resources when these zodiacs
are going through difficulty and in great problems.
Note: The statue is made and hand finished by monks in Tibet.
The statue had also been blessed and is sacred.
He is one of the four great bodhisattvas of Chinese Buddhism,
the four being: Kshitigarbha, Manjusri, Avalokiteshvara, and Samantabhadra.
Together with the Buddha and fellow colleague Samantabhadra he
forms the Sakyamuni trinity. In Tibetan Buddhism he sometimes
is depicted in a trinity with Avalokiteshvara and Vajrapani. Manjusri
is mentioned in a number of Mahayana Buddhist sutras, particularly
the Prajnaparamita Sutras.
Some statues showed that Manjusri has His
right hand holding a flaming sword, which represents the sharpness
of prajna that can cut through the growth of suffering and the net
of wrong views. The flame lights up the darkness, just as the light
of wisdom dispels the darkness of ignorance. His left hand holds
a magnificent blue lotus flower in full bloom, on which rests the
Prajnaparamita Sutra (Great Wisdom Sutra). This sutra contains the
essence of the great wisdom teachings of the Buddha. The lotus is
the promise of the future for all beings who follow the Teachings.
He is often depicted as riding a golden-maned lion, which symbolizes
the stern majesty of prajna. The lion is the king of the beasts
and is fearless. Similarly, Manjusri Bodhisattva teaches the dharma
without fear or favour, like the lion's roar.
