Manjushri is the Wisdom Buddha; the manifestation of all the Buddhas’ wisdom. His right hand holds a wisdom sword symbolizing his wisdom that cuts through ignorance. His left hand at his heart holds the stem of an upala flower that supports the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra in Eight Thousand Lines, indicating that by relying upon Manjushri we can develop the wisdom eye with which we can see the entire meaning of Buddha’s Perfection of Wisdom Sutras.
By engaging in prayers to Buddha Manjushri regularly, we will develop the wisdom necessary for making progress in our study and meditation.
Manjushri prayers are done from time to time at the Centre. Please see our calendar for details.
