Manjushri is the Bodhisattva of Wisdom, embodying the wisdom and knowledge aspect of all Buddhas of the ten directions and three times. His wisdom sword cuts the root of all suffering and his dazzling light dispels the darkness of confusion.
Manjushri practice is essential because it helps to clear away confusion about the nature of reality and bring forth wisdom. It helps to purify the mind and to clear away all temporary stains of the afflictive emotions.
His root mantra, OM WAM GI SHWARI MUM, is highly revered as one of the quickest methods to bring about transcendent awareness.
“As a preparation for the Special Yamantaka Empowerment & Teachings Event to be bestowed by H. E. Garchen Rinpoche on April 12-13, 2014, we encourage everyone to participate in this peaceful Manjushri empowerment and practice, in particular to recite with mindfulness and accumulate peaceful Manjushri mantras as many as possible.”
