This Manjushri Thangka painting is hand-painted on high-quality cotton canvas by a Master artist. The size of this thangka is 60 x 45 cm.
Manjushri is the Bodhisattva of transcendental knowledge. According to the sacred text, Manjushri came on a pilgrimage from China to Nepal. At that time, the Kathmandu Valley was a wide lake.
Legend has it that Manjushri saw a bright light coming from a lotus flower in the center of the lake, so he cut a gorge with his flaming sword to drain the lake.
In this Thangka painting, he is represented in the most typical form as a beautiful young prince with orange or yellow eyes.
Manjushri holds a blazing sword in his right hand, a figurative weapon that kills ignorance and transforms it into transcendent knowledge (fire is a sign of transformation).
His left hand is put in front of his core, holding the stem of a lotus that bears the Prajnaparamita sutra, indicating the realization and perfection of wisdom and intellect.
