Beautifully hand-painted Manjushri Thangka Painting is a perfect decorative wall art for your shrine and home. It can aid you in your mediation and spiritual growth. Manjushri is a God of wisdom very well respected in Tibetan and Newari Tradition.
Manjushri is the Bodhisattva of transcendent wisdom. With Avalokitesvara and Vajrapani he protects the Tathagata family, which includes Buddha Shakyamuni and Buddha Vairochana. According to a sacred text Manjushri came from China to Nepal on a pilgrimage. At that time the Kathmandu Valley was a big lake.
Manjusri sits on the lotus holding a flaming sword in his right hand, representing the realization of transcendent wisdom which cuts down ignorance and duality. The scripture supported by the Padma held in his left hand is a Prajnaparamita sutra.
