Detailed Description

The Sanskrit name Manjushri means "gentle glory" or "sweet glory". Manjushri is also known as Manjughosha (meaning "sweet-voiced-one" or "gentle-voiced-one") and as Vagishvara ("Lord of Speech").

Manjushri is said to have the power of discriminating wisdom. He can discriminate between correct and incorrect views and between beneficial and non-beneficial actions that must be taken on one's spiritual path. He holds a sword that vanquishes ignorance. Manjushri's sword is also considered a sword of quick detachment and a symbol of enlightened will.

In Buddhist art, Manjushri is portrayed as a beautiful 16-year-old prince. He often holds in his left hand the stem of a blue lotus blossom. On the blossom rests the Prajnaparamita, seminal pseudepigraphic sutras revered by Tibetan monks for centuries as the word of the Buddha. With his right hand he wields a flaming sword of wisdom to vanquish ignorance.
