Manjushree

Description

Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom” bears the sword that cuts all ignorance, and holds the sacred text, Perfection of Wisdom, as the embodiment of the perfectly enlightened mind. He is the patron deity of Newar Buddhism, because according to the Buddhist sacred legend, the Svayambhu Purana, he is said to have cut the gorge of Chobhar hill with his flaming sword Chandrahasa and let the waters flow out of the Valley when it was still a great lake. He thereby opened the Kathmandu valley for human habitation to allow for the propagation of the Dharma.
