"I entreat you O Manjushri, to remove the darkness from my mind.
Illuminate the darkness enclosing my mind.
Enable me to receive sure insights into the texts.
Enlighten me with the brilliance of your wisdom,
O Manjushri, all-loving one!"

Manjushri holds the flaming sword of wisdom in his right hand and in his left the stem of a lotus flower upon which rests a volume of the Wisdom Sutra. This text is believed to be the Buddha's most profound statement on the ultimate nature of reality. Indeed all his attributes point to the wisdom that he personifies. His double-edged sword cuts off the negative influences of ignorance and misconception. It is said that there are two powerful ways of developing wisdom, to study the profound Buddhist Sutras, and to meditate upon Manjushri. It is the custom in many Buddhist schools to recite the mantra of Manjushri the first thing in the morning.

Thus befitting his status, this Bodhisattva of wisdom and understanding sits gracefully poised on a double lotus pedestal, his face a picture of calmness and serenity. As per Buddhist aesthetics he is dressed as a young prince, exemplified in his richly ornamented lower dress.
