Manjushri is one of the oldest and most important Boddhisattvas in Tibetan Buddhism and has come to represent transcendent wisdom. He is depicted as a male bodhisattva wielding a flaming sword in his right hand, representing the realization of transcendent wisdom which cuts down ignorance and duality. The scripture supported by the lotus held in his left hand is a Prajñaparamita sutra, representing his attainment of ultimate realization from the blossoming of wisdom.The Lotus Sutra assigns him a pure land or Buddha Field called Vimala, which according to the Avatasaka Sutra is located in the uttermost East, beyond the confines of our World. His pure land is predicted to be one of the two best pure lands in all of existence in all the past, present and future. When he attains buddhahood his name will be Universal Sight.This beautiful Thangka is painted by a very experienced Thangka Painter who has a studio in the shadow of the great Boudha Stupa in Kathmandu. It is unframed and painted onto cotton, the painted area of the picture measures 310 mm by 410 mm and is a very detailed hand painting in the traditional thangka style. The pigments used are all natural mineral or vegetable based paints.We buy our Thangkas directly from the artists which guarentees that the painters are well paid for their wonderful work.Our Thangkas are at least 20 years old as the Thangka Paintingin the last Century was far superior to current Thangkas which are made primarily for the tourist trade.
