Manjushri is the Bodhisattva of transcendent wisdom. The youthful prince carries in his right hand the double edged sword to cut through illusion and in his left hand he has a blooming lotus that supports a volume of the Prajna-Paramita Sutra.Manjushri is depicted as a youth in order to convey the Buddhist insight that wisdom is not a matter of mere experience or years, but results from the cultivation of intellectual genius which can penetrate directly to the bedrock of reality. Wisdom is the most honoured virtue in Buddhism, called the Mother of all Buddha’s, since only wisdom makes possible the great bliss of total freedom from all suffering that is the goal of all living beings. Thus, Manjushri is one the most important of all Buddhist deities, the veritable God of wisdom and herald of emancipation.
