Manjushri is the bodhisattva of Wisdom, his name means, “He Who Is Noble and Gentle.” While he is the oldest known bodhisattva he is by far the youngest, which signifies that wisdom is inherent within our nature. He has a double-edged flaming sword in his right hand. This signifies that while one side cuts through our ignorance and sense of self, the other side is cutting through our karmic obstacles. The flames signify the transformation that cutting through achieves. In this statue there is a lotus flower near his shoulder, which represents the ultimate realization of enlightenment.
Manjusri is one we can turn to when we seek wisdom. For example needing to be sharp for an interview or test. Having an image of him near generates his qualities.
The Mantra of Manjushri: OM AH RA PA TZA NA DHIH
