Manjusri: Bodhisattva of Transcendent Wisdom Statue

Manjusri Bodhisattva
Ma˝juśrī Pala Dynasty, India, 9th century CE.


Ma˝juśrī is a bodhisattva associated with transcendent wisdom in Mahāyāna Buddhism. In Esoteric Buddhism he is a meditational deity. The Sanskrit name Ma˝juśrī can be translated as "Gentle Glory".

Scholars have identified Ma˝juśrī as the oldest and most significant bodhisattva in Mahāyāna literature. Ma˝juśrī is first referred to in early Mahāyāna texts such as the Praj˝āpāramitā sūtras and through this association very early in the tradition he came to symbolize the embodiment of praj˝ā (transcendent wisdom). In the Lotus Sūtra, Ma˝juśrī also leads the Nāga King's daughter to enlightenment.

Ma˝juśrī 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 Praj˝āpāramitā sūtra, representing his attainment of ultimate realization from the blossoming of wisdom.

Ma˝juśrī is often depicted as riding on a blue lion, or sitting on the skin of a lion. This represents the use of wisdom to tame the mind, which is compared to riding or subduing a ferocious lion. He is the deity that helps with meditation.
