Manjushri is best known in Mahayana Buddhism as the Bodhisattva of wisdom. Bodhisattvas are Buddhas-to-be or those close to the reaching Enlightenment. His name translates to Gentle or Sweet Glory in Sanskrit. He is said to be one of the most renowned and closest pupils of Buddha Shakyamuni. Per tradition, he is usually depicted as a Dhyani-Bodhisattva, thus he can be seen wearing princely garb and accessories, as seen in this thangka painted. When painted hi is colored yellow, and this thangka complemented his yellow skin with warm tones for the clouds and backdrop. He is also pictured on a seating position on top of a multicolored lotus throne.

Manjushri’s depiction in the art typically shows him wielding a fiery sword on his right hand. This is called the Sword of Manjushri, or the sword the cuts the duality and ignorance. It is drawn with a fire on the blade, which can symbolize how cutting the bad sides of worldly knowledge can also aide the darkness it brings. On his left hand, he holds a blue lotus, another symbol of wisdom. The said lotus then offers a bed for the Prajnaparamita or the Perfection of (Transcendent) Wisdom scripture. This book discusses the ideal way of viewing the nature of reality. His left hand is in a Vitarka (lesson-teaching) mudra or positon. Pink lotus can be seen in the thangka— on the throne and the petals lifting the holy book—as it the Pink Lotus represents the Buddha himself and is used to regard only the highest deities. The mountain ranges at his back are said to represent the Wu Tai Shan, a sacred mountain believed to have been visited and dwelled on by Manjushri.
