Description

Manjushri (or manjusri) Bodhisattva is the embodiment of wisdom. The word manju means “charming, beautiful, pleasing” and Shri means “glory, brilliance”. The Bodhisattva is regarded as the crown prince of Buddhist teachings, or the one who can bring about enlightenment through sharing of wisdom. Manjushri has this title because he was the instructor for seven different Buddhas, and was the first among all disciples of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Manjusri Bodhisattva is a guardian Bodhisattva of those born on the Lunar Year of the Rabbit. Manjushri is often depicted holding an object known as the Ruyi and riding a lion. Holding a Ruyi represents that the path to happiness lies in attaining wisdom. The lion symbolizes the stern majesty of wisdom.

It is said that Manjushri came from the land of Ratnaketu Buddha in the east. Manjushri was known for his unconventionally straightforward style of teaching. Unlike other gradual methods of progressing from elementary to more complex doctrines, Manjushri would jump directly to the top, the meaning of the supreme truth known as the ultimate nirvana.

This Bodhisattva statue is suitable for placing together with Shakyamuni  Buddha and Pu Xian Bodhisattva. It is recommended to place Shakyamuni Buddha in the center, and the two Bodhisattvas on the left and right of Shakyamuni Buddha.

文殊菩萨(或文殊师利)为佛教四大菩萨之一,是所有佛陀智慧的体现。 manju一词的意思是“迷人,美丽,令人愉悦”,Shri的意思是“荣耀,光辉”。菩萨被认为是佛教教义的皇太子,或者是最能解释佛教智慧,能够消灭苦难并带来启示的人。文殊菩萨之所以拥有这个头衔,是因为他曾是七种不同佛陀的讲师,其中一位是释迦牟尼佛。

文殊菩萨是属兔的守护菩萨,也是农历二月出生者的守护佛。此尊文殊菩萨手持如意,骑着狮子。手上的如意象征唯有智慧的人,才能如意!智慧才是使我们事事如意的法宝!唯有智慧,才能使我们妙吉祥!狮子被称为百兽之王,象征着严峻与威猛。另外,文殊师利菩萨,与普贤菩萨同为释迦佛之胁侍,是释迦牟尼佛所有菩萨弟子中的上首。

此菩萨像适合与释迦牟尼佛和普贤菩萨摆放在一起,将释迦牟尼佛置于中央位置,两位菩萨则摆放于佛的左右手边。
