Manjushri is a bodhisattva, a Buddha who represents wisdom, and his mantra also symbolizes this quality. He holds a sword in his right hand, symbolizing the ability to split illusion.
He dispels ignorance, bestows eloquence and symbolizes the enlightenment that can be achieved through learning.
Our Buddha dating from the late seventeenth century is a perfect example of the sacred art of Tibet.
