Manjushri Bodhisattva


Praise to Manjushri Bodhisattva:

"Wonderfully Auspicious" is replete with great kindness.
Mother of enlightened ones throughout the three periods of time, his wisdom is beyond measure.
His left hand brandishes a sharp sword that severs all afflictions;
And his right hand holds the blue lotus which reflects the mark of his virtue.
A peacock and lion-spirit act as his carriage,
Poisonous dragons and fierce beasts are subdued and become pure and cool.
The pure youth with the five topknots, this is a provisional manifestation.
Originally, he is the happy treasury of the Thus Come One.

Homage to Manjushri Bodhisattva of Great Wisdom, who dwells in the golden world of Pure Cool Mountain.

Homage to Wonderful Auspicious Bodhisattva.
