Quality Manjushri Thangka. Thanka. Scroll. Printed. Silk. China.
Manjushri – the oldest and most significant Bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism – is the embodiment of transcendent wisdom.
As a fully enlightened Bodhisattva, he is respected and worshipped as a “meditational” diety. For those who meditate on him, he instructs in the Dharma and stimulates them to develop wisdom.
His image – especially on Thangka scrolls – is most often seen on the walls of meditation halls, libraries and scripture study rooms in monasteries.
This Thangka was handcrafted / printed / assembled in village outside Chengu, Sichuan Province. A yellow silk cloth covers the image when not in use… and it can be rolled up.
