Buddha Manjushri/Wen Shu (文殊菩萨)


Out of stock




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。
