Manjushri's right hand brandishes the sword which dispels ignorance and the other holds the stem of a lotus which finds full bloom on his left shoulder. This is a symbol of auspiciousness and a sign of 'pure birth.' While Manjushri's complete body is achieved in a silver hue, his ornaments are exclusively golden. With this almost divine color combination, coupled with the youthful gentleness on his face, the sculptor has succeeded eminently in capturing the benign essence of this compassionate bodhisattva.

The sword in his hand does not at all impart him a menacing demeanour. Rather, his downcast eyes, framed above by arched eyebrows, and the soft chiselling of his face, all manage to convey a compassion directed towards the viewer.

Manjushri: The Wisdom-Bearer Bodhisattva

Manjushri, also known as Manjughosha, is one of the most revered deities in Mahayana Buddhism. He is considered a male Bodhisattva associated with or the embodiment of wisdom (transcendental knowledge). The Sanskrit term Manjushri translates to “sweet glory”. The practitioners and followers of Buddhism consider him a fully enlightened Buddha who is very merciful towards all living entities of this material world. They meditate upon his deity to develop his inner transcendental qualities to advance in their spiritual consciousness and journey. Manjushri is often compared with Hinduism and in some traditions, Goddess Saraswati is said to be his consort.

Nepalese sculptures are famous for describing the form of Bodhisattvas and the Manjushri is portrayed as a youthful man riding on a lion or sometimes sitting on the skin of a lion. He holds a flaming sword in his right hand while the scripture is in his left hand. The scripture (Prajñāpāramitā sutra) represents transcendental knowledge and the sword symbolizes the power of transcendental wisdom to cut down one's illusion and duality.

Who is Manjushri in Buddhism?

Different traditions or sects of Buddhism have their own understanding and reverence for Manjushri. In Mahayana Buddhism, scholars identify him as the oldest and the most important Bodhisattva who embodies transcendental wisdom. The followers of Vajrayana Buddhism consider Manjushri an important meditational deity who is a fully enlightened Buddha and disciples devote themselves to him. In Tibetan Buddhism, the wrathful manifestation of Manjushri (Yamantaka) is worshiped. He is also known by different names in different countries and Buddhist cultures. For instance, in China, Manjushri is known as Wenshu.

What is the significance of Manjushri?

In some Sutras of the Mahayana Buddhism scripture, Manjushri is often mentioned discussing the wisdom of Dharma with Buddha. Thus, it is believed that he inspires all the fallen souls of this material world to take up knowledge, both material and spiritual, that can develop good qualities in them. Those who meditate upon the form of Manjushri and pray to him are blessed with good spiritual learning skills that eventually help them to advance further in their consciousness.

What is the power of Manjushri?

In Mahayana Buddhism, Manjushri is considered one of the four principal Bodhisattvas; the three others are Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha, Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, and Bodhisattva Samantabhadra. Bodhisattva Manjushri is very powerful and therefore his followers chant the Manjushri mantra that blesses them with inner wisdom and worldly knowledge. Those who regularly chant the mantra experience the direct guidance of Manjushri in their lives.

Unveiling the Divine: Exploring the Symbolism and Significance of Lakshmi

Lakshmi Devi is one of the principal Goddesses in Hinduism. In the Vaishnava tradition, especially the Sri Vaishnava Sampradaya, Vishnu and Lakshmi are considered the Supreme or Absolute Truth. Mother Lakshmi is known as the Goddess of fortune who blesses the living entities in the material world with material wealth and prosperity. Our Vedic scriptures mention that Lakshmi Ji is the eternal consort of Lord Vishnu who is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He maintains and controls everything in the material and spiritual world. Goddess Lakshmi is also His internal potency and is thus always engaged in the loving devotional service of the Lord in His spiritual abode Vaikuntha, a place where there is no misery.

The transcendental form of Mother Lakshmi is extremely beautiful. She is the emblem of beauty and mercy. She sees every individual soul as her own child and whoever approaches her with faith and devotion, certainly gets the mercy of Lakshmi Devi. She is often depicted wearing a red saree and holding different items in her four arms. She holds a lotus flower in each of her two upper arms. With one of her lower hands, she holds a pot full of gold coins (representing wealth) while the other hand stays in a mudra that signifies charity.

Can we keep a Lakshmi statue at home?

As stated earlier, Lakshmi Ji bestows good fortune upon her devotees and takes care of them. She is full of compassion and therefore accepts anyone who comes to her even with ulterior motives. However, she not only gives material wealth to her devotees but those who approach her to know the real goal of human life or to know about the Absolute Truth, she blesses them with spiritual wealth (wisdom and mercy) by which they can come to a higher platform and consciousness. Thus, it is only by the mercy of Goddess Lakshmi that a living entity starts its spiritual journey toward Lord Vishnu.

If you want to attract this special mercy, you can keep the deity of Goddess Lakshmi at your home and worship her every day with an attitude of surrender. By doing so, you will develop a personal relationship with her and you will be able to experience transcendental happiness.

Which Lakshmi idol is good for home?

Lakshmi Devi expands herself into eight major forms (Ashta Lakshmi) that are Dhana Lakshmi, Dhanya Lakshmi, Gaja Lakshmi, Sanatana Lakshmi, Dhairya Lakshmi, Vijaya Lakshmi, Vidya Lakshmi, and Aishwarya Lakshmi. You can keep any of the forms of Lakshmi in your home to bring material and spiritual auspiciousness. However, if you want her ultimate mercy, you may keep the deity of Goddess Lakshmi along with her master, Lord Vishnu.

Which material is good for Lakshmi idol?

The idol or deity of Goddess Lakshmi comes in various materials such as brass, wood, marble, copper, bronze, etc. If you are planning to keep a deity of Lakshmi Devi at your home, the best material would be either brass or marble. Brass is known for its exquisite appearance resembling gold and is also a strong material. Marble is preferred by most people because it lasts longer than any other material.

How to keep a Brass statue well-maintained?

Brass statues are known and appreciated for their exquisite beauty and luster. The brilliant bright gold appearance of Brass makes it appropriate for casting aesthetic statues and sculptures. Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc. This chemical composition makes brass a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. Due to these properties, Brass statues and sculptures can be kept both indoors as well as outdoors. They also last for many decades without losing all their natural shine.


Brass statues can withstand even harsh weather conditions very well due to their corrosion-resistance properties. However, maintaining the luster and natural beauty of brass statues is essential if you want to prolong their life and appearance.


  • The best and simplest way to maintain a brass statue is to clean it at least twice a week using a soft cloth or cotton rag. This will prevent dust from accumulating on the surface. Dusting is especially important for outdoor statues since it is prone to dust accumulation much more than indoors.



  • To give a natural shine and luster to the statue, you may apply coconut or olive oil using cotton on every portion. You can use a toothbrush to get to the small crevices but do not be too harsh. This will make the brass statue appear fresh and new with a polished look.

  • In case you have a colored brass statue, you may apply mustard oil using a soft brush or clean cloth on the brass portion while for the colored portion of the statue, you may use coconut oil with a cotton cloth. 


Brass idols of Hindu Gods and Goddesses are especially known for their intricate and detailed work of art. Nepalese sculptures are famous for small brass idols portraying Buddhist deities. These sculptures are beautified with gold gilding and inlay of precious or semi-precious stones. Religious brass statues can be kept at home altars. You can keep a decorative brass statue in your garden or roof to embellish the area and fill it with divinity.
