Brass Metal Manjushri Statue Figure Amulet Buddhist Bodhisattva Deity Nepal



This is a gorgeous Brass Metal Statue of Monjushri from Thailand. Monjushri is known as the Bodhisattva of wisdom and Knowledge. According to legend, Manjusri came to Nepal from China over 2,000 years ago to worship the Adi Buddha. Surrounded by mountains, in the middle of the country, lay a large lake. In the middle of the lake bloomed a lotus on which the Adi Buddha, Svayambhu (the “self-Creating One”), manifested himself as a flame. The Bodhisattva smote the rocks with his sword near Chobar Nepal so that the water flowed away and the valley was able to be cultivated. The present-day Kathmandu Valley lies at the location of the former lake, as ha been revealed geologically. He moved the lotus with the flame to a hill on the west side. He is eternally young and muscular, and has some twenty variations.
