MANJUSHRI

Buddhist Wisdom God

Also known as MANJUSRI

A Sage of Wisdom and Knowledge

He is one of the major BODHISATTVAS and is also a partner in the Shakyamuni Trinity with BUDDHA and SAMANTABHADRA.

Rumor suggests that he was a disciple of the original Buddha GAUTAMA himself, but this will require some meditation to prove.

When performing his professional duties, he rides a lion and waves around a dangerous-looking sword. However, please do not feel intimidated. The sword is to cut you free from the tangled clutches of illusion. It won’t hurt a bit.

We are currently under the illusion that his Japanese incarnation is MONJU.
